Students put on their best dresses and suits to say goodbye to school in style amid madcap transport and casino tables.

Banger racers and buses were among the vehicles which brought more than 120 youngsters from North Walsham High School to their farewell event.

It was held at Northrepps Cottage, where they arrived in a cavalcade which also included stretch limousines, a camper van and even a mobility scooter.

One lad arrived turned up in his own banger racing car, and another on a tractor, said organiser Emma Bullen from the school office.

There was a buffet meal, and chocolate fountain, and for the first time, a fun casino featuring card and roulette tables where winners could pick up prizes rather than fortunes for their skill and luck

Teacher Carol Wall also made a casino-themed cake with cards and dice on it, to match the occasion.

Entertainment came from the Gary James disco, before the youngsters left just before midnight.

During the year students and staff helped subsidise the event through a string of money-raising events including cake stalls, talent shows, and non-uniform days.
