Does anyone still keep in touch with any old school friends?

Yes I do Irene--i am in contact with a few most of the year -also we have an annual get to-gether the week before Christmas i would say about 8 of us.
Each time we meet the old school photographs come out and a discussion about each one on the pics.

Yes I have had a few visit over the last 3 or 4 years largely through facebook connections. As I moved away from Auckland where I went to secondary school, I lost touch with most of my good buddies and many of them have also spread across the world. There is a regular Takapuna Grammar school alumni group who I talk to online but have not yet managed to attend any reunions. There's a School 90 year celebration later this year- maybe!!

I have three particular class mates with whom I am in regular contact.

We have arranged numerous reunion dinners with all we still have contact from our senior school class.  Which reminds me, it's about time I instigated something in the relatively near future...

I have one school friend who lives just along the road from me. We were part of the same group of friends during our schooldays and early working days. Our ages are only 10 days apart and we go for a meal with our wives around the time of our birthdays. We might see each a few times a year other than that but not too much more.

I think it is a good thing to keep in touch with old school pals--you can see too much of relatives -they come in handy at times but i much prefer my old pals.

Sadly my best friend died in 1997. I worked with a couple of girls from school but we're not in my class.

There was a school reunion back in 2004 but I did not fancy it. Not sure why though.

It's a staggering thought that I have know these 'girls' since we were all 11yrs old! 

I find it incredible that when we all get together, they all seem the same as when we were at school.  The laughter rings out in their familiar tones.

I have lost touch with all but one, and met up again with him when we visited his bowling green for an away match.  I bump into him occasionally in Lichfield.

I have not moved away from my home town, although moved to the other side of it, and 
I still see several old school friends regularly but not on any organised occasions, judt chance meetings mostly.
