A REUNION was held for former pupils of Oldbury Technical School who attended the Flash Road site from 1954 – 1957 on March 18 this year at the Lakeside Pub and Restaurant, Birmingham New Road, Oldbury.
Oldbury Technical School was a 13 plus higher education centre with an entrance exam. There were two classes in each of the three years, one of each for boys and girls.
Following the 'all school years reunion' at the Station Hotel, Dudley, in January 2006 for pupils from about 1946 to 1962, we from the 1954 – 57 years have met up almost annually. Not able to make it this year was Tom Chilton, now living in Cornwall, and Brian Darby.
Others we keep in touch with are Denis Poxon, aka Amor, Michael Jelf, both in Australia, and Kieran Shanahan in Canada.
