Former pupils revive the past; RUBERY.

A CITY school is urging former pupils and staff to revive their memories as part of a planned 75th anniversary celebration. Waseley Hills High School and Sixth Form Centre in Rubery is looking to put together a variety of events to commemorate its 75th birthday next year.

Among the planned events is the planting of 75 trees in the school grounds. The school is particularly keen to hear from past staff and students interested in attending a reunion, as well as sponsor or donate a tree.

Waseley Hills head teacher David Thurbon said: "This is a major event for the school and we have big plans for the anniversary.

"We would love to get in touch with anyone connected with the school who would be willing to tell us some of the stories from their days here." He added: "It would be great if we could interview former pupils about their school experiences to help mark the event. If you can't come to the school, we'll even be able to come to you in most cases."

n Anyone interested can write to Mr Thurbon or Tessa Bidgood at Waseley Hill High in School Road, Rubery, Birmingham B45 9EL, or email: tbidgood@waseleyhills.
