A reunion of former 
students of Bungay 
Grammar School and Bungay High School is 
being planned for the

The school is organising 
a number of events during 
the year to mark the landmark, and Town 
Reeve Terry Reeve, an old pupil of the grammar 
school - which became the high school in 1974 - 
is organising the re-union 
as an additional celebration.

The event will be held on Tuesday, July 21, during the annual Bungay Festival, in the marquee at the Castle Meadow, and former 
students from all eras are welcome. It will begin at 
noon, and there will be a lunch-time buffet and an evening buffet, as well as a bar throughout the day.

The event will also 
include a display on the school’s history, and those attending are encouraged to bring along any photographs or school memorabilia they may have, to add to the display.

Mr Reeve said: “I hope it 
will be a memorable event to mark a memorable anniversary of an outstanding school, and I 
do hope to see as many 
former students there to be part of it.

“Most former students will be in touch with 
others from their era, and once they know about it I hope they will spread the word. There is room in the marquee for over 300 – so let us try to fill it with school friends old and new.”

There will be a charge 
for each buffet, and 
donations will be invited 
for the Town Reeve’s 
appeal, which is supporting the establishment of a 
youth choir for Bungay,
