Former Camphill Primary pupils have stepped back in time for a special reunion - 47 years after leaving the school.

They travelled from Australia, England and various parts of Northern Ireland for the opportunity to meet up in Ballymena on Friday, August 16, when they had the chance to look back to when they were all last together in 1972.

It was the year that Alice Cooper proclaimed ‘Schools Out for summer’, the New Seekers wanted to teach the world to sing, Donny Osmond introduced us to what they called ‘Puppy Love’, and, The Sweet, T.Rex, Slade and David Cassidy were producing some of their biggest hits.

The group (pictured) came together in Leighinmohr House for a meal and to renew friendships, to remember the halcyon days of 1972 and share their stories of that time.

It was a very special night enjoyed by everyone involved.
