Norwich nostalgia: School photos through the decades
- Credit: Archant Library
As the new term begins many children are experiencing their first taste of school in Norwich - but can you remember your first day?
To celebrate we've had a look through our archives to find some retro photos of school starters from years gone by, can you spot yourself?
Our photos show swimming lessons at Hethersett School, a nativity in Poringland and even a sailing regatta at Eaton.
Today's new starters will be using laptops and other high-tech learning equipment, but back in 1992 children at Sprowston High School couldn't believe their eyes as they played video games on one of the school's only machines located in its library.
We all remember the sad times when our favourite teachers left, such as these two teachers at West Earlham First School in 1973 being showered with gifts in one photo.
