‘Fan­tas­tic night’ had by all af­ter Tele helps Rock­well school pals re­unite af­ter 47 years

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

THE Rocky Crew rolled back the years with a rather epic re­union — and they even got to see in­side the old Rock­well Pri­mary it­self!

The oc­ca­sion was or­gan­ised by Ros­alind Kyle, who went to Rock­well from 1963-70.

She moved away and lived in England for nearly 30 years but re­turned to Dundee a while back and now works for the city coun­cil.

Ros­alind never for­got the happy and good times at Rocky and, with the help of the Tele and Face­book, or­gan­ised a school re­union.

“Thanks to the de­part­ment we were able to visit the school and I got ev­ery­one those tiny milk bot­tles we used to get at morn­ing break.

“Then we car­ried on the cel­e­bra­tions into the evening and had a great night at Rewind.

“About 20 peo­ple turned up and we’re hop­ing to have an­other gath­er­ing next year when most of us will have ei­ther turned 60 years young or will be about to.

keep their milk bot­tle — with the Rock­well school crest printed on it — and one was even sent out to Spain to a guy who couldn’t make it for the oc­ca­sion.

An­other for­mer pupil trav­elled from Cheshire, with the rest from sur­round­ing ar­eas of Dundee.

“I can’t thank the Tele enough for its as­sis­tance in mak­ing this hap­pen as many of us are now in reg­u­lar con­tact.

Ros­alind said most of those who at­tended hadn’t seen their old class­mates for 47 years. It was ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic and the night at Rewind was bril­liant.”
