Past pupils from Stalham High School are being asked to get in touch to help mark the school's 70th birthday.

Events will include a celebratory tea party on December 3 from 2pm to 4pm, and the school is particularly keen to hear from ex-pupils from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s who would like to join in.

Past pupils from Stalham High School are being asked to get in touch to help mark the school's 70th birthday.

Events will include a celebratory tea party on December 3 from 2pm to 4pm, and the school is particularly keen to hear from ex-pupils from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s who would like to join in.

The school is also planning two other events to which all ex-pupils are invited, as well as the wider public in Stalham.

One is a thanksgiving service on December 2 at St Mary's Church at 7.30pm led by former Stalham teacher the Rev Richard Jackson.

The other is the opening of the school on December 5 from 10am to 4pm to show ex-pupils how the buildings have changed over the years. One part of the building which has seen very recent changes has been the reception area.

Headteacher Melinda Derry said: “We've had workmen here over the past few weeks altering that area to bring it up to date and make it much more welcoming for parents and the community. And we plan to have an official opening of the reception during the celebrations, including the unveiling of a special sculpture, which the students have been involved in creating.”

Pupils have been involved in the celebratory preparations. Three year 11 students have been working with head of history Joy Southam to produce an exhibition on the history of the school which will be on display in the main corridor.

Anyone wishing to attend the events can contact the school office on 01692 580281 to book a place or for more information.
