Eight pupils from the class of '82 returned to Ellington Primary School on Friday afternoon for a celebratory reunion.
As part of a series of events to commemorate Ellington's 80th anniversary, the ex-pupils came back to the school in Cookham Road, Maidenhead, for a tour around their old classrooms and a chance to meet some of the current pupils.
Michaela Sloan, who works at the school as an administrator and lives in Maidenhead, was one of the people invited back for the day.
"Although it's my place of work and I know the building it was quite emotional to see everybody again, we didn't stop talking the whole afternoon," said Michaela.
The reunion was organised by Joti Playhay, who got in contact with his old classmates via Facebook.
Michaela added: "One person, Amy Mahon, came over from where she lives in France just for the day."
The ex-pupils made an appearance at a special assembly where the children were invited to ask questions about what it was like to be at Ellington in the 70s and early 80s, and were served tea and cake by headteacher Rehana Juna.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
