Schooldays are the happiest days of your life - or so the saying goes.
So this selection of pictures from the Evening News archives may bring back some happy memories.
The photos are also a reminder of how much has changed over the decades - not just the school settings, but the clothes the children wear and the atmosphere conjured up by the images.
Perhaps you can spot yourself - or your parents or grandparents - in the photos.
