Pupils who attended Arbroath High School in the 1990s are being invited to a school reunion - which will take place in May this year.

Former Arbroath High School head girl, Ceri Davies, is organising a 20th reunion for the class of 1996 and she is trying to track down both former pupils and staff ahead of the event.

The event has been publicised on a number of social media pages so far - including on the Arbroath Online and Arbroath By The Community For The Community Facebook pages - but Ceri is hoping to highlight the event to as many people as possible.

The event is open to all students who started at Arbroath High School in 1990, and the event has also been extended to staff members who worked at the school from 1990 to 1996.

She explained: “I am keen to track down as many pupils and staff as possible from that era.

“I have been able to find many people through social media, but do not wish for anyone who is not so keen on modern technology to slip through the cracks!”

The 20-year reunion is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 28, at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel.

Ceri said: “There will be a delicious buffet, DJ, mouth-watering chocolate fountain and surely no event is complete without a dress-up photo booth!”

Tickets are priced at £35 for a single ticket, but a pair of tickets if you plan on bringing your spouse or partner - which attendees are welcome to do - will be available at a cost of £60.

Ceri said: “Tickets can be purchased from me in two ways:

“1 - PayPal. My email address is gw@thegingerwarrior.com

“2 - Bank transfer. Account number: 0 0 6 3 7 2 9 3 Sort code: 83 15 22

“The person’s name should be left as a reference so I know to whom the ticket belongs.

“Anyone with questions or queries can direct them to me using that email address.”

Organising large school events isn’t unusual for Ceri, who was the person behind the class of ‘96’s prom - the first prom to take place at the High School and an event that has become a tradition at the school ever since.

Ceri added: “It really is a case of the more the merrier and I am sure we all have a lot of catching up to do.”
