Were you at Blyth-Jex School in the 1970s, 1980s or 1990s? Reunion is looking for former pupils
A school reunion is being held in May for former pupils of the Blyth-Jex School in north Norwich who were students in the 1970s, 1980s or 1990s.
After last year's event, which saw 250 pupils who attended the school in 1980s and 1990s reunite, the event organiser Julie Thomson decided to extend it those who went to the school in the 1970s.
It will once again be held at the Top of The Terrace at Carrow Road on May 27 with music from the era to reignite all those memories of school discos from days gone by. People are also encouraged to submit school photos to play in a slide show on the night.
Following last year's successful event Mrs Thomson said there was lots of interest on social media for another.
'I put a message on the Facebook page asking if people wanted another one this year and I had about 70 people saying yes,' she said. 'Other people also asked if we could include 1970s as they felt they couldn't attend the last event.'

At the event last year students came from across the country to attend and one even made the trip over from Germany. Eight former teachers also went to the event.
'The atmosphere was great and people were worried before that they would not recognise anyone but once it got going there were no problems,' said Mrs Thomson. 'Some people have said this time that everyone should wear name badges but I think that would spoil the great atmosphere in some way.'

The school, now known as the Sewell Park Academy, dates back to 1929 where it was originally a girls grammar school.
It became known as the Blyth-Jex School in 1972 after merging with two neighbouring secondary schools and was home to nearly a thousand students.
