Former classmates are trying to track down fellow Thurleston School alumni for a reunion.
The original students who were at the school when it opened back in 1958 will be meeting up at Greshams, in Tuddenham Road, Ipswich on Saturday, September 1 to reminisce about their school days.
John Turner, 73, was a student between 1958 and 1960 before joining the Merchant Navy and is one of 60 already signed up for the reunion.
He said: “I started my secondary education at Westbourne School and went to Thurleston as a third year.”
Organiser Jenny Hare said: “I am surprised by how many we have so far, but I do stay in touch with a lot of people via Facebook and they have helped spread the word.

Tickets to the event are £10. For more information or to buy a ticket call Mrs Hare on 01473 830503.
