Students young and old reminisced at a 65th anniversary celebration of a Norwich school.
St William's Primary School, on Williams Loke, opened its doors to former pupils from across the decades who spoke with children students aged four-11.
The event, which was the first of its kind for the school, included three generations of the same family.
Topics which former students spoke about included news headlines, popular culture and sport from the 1950s and changes in the uniform over the decades.
The school has 400 pupils and the anniversary event was supported by Norwich history enthusiasts.
