This week, some very lucky children from each year group were joined by our news team, for an extremely exciting morning. When we interviewed Simon Krol (the director of KrolCorlett) about our school redevelopment recently, he presented us with an opportunity that was not to be missed: burying a time capsule under our new school building! We were all eager to be part of such a great idea and wasted no time in designing our capsule and collecting items from every class in our school to be buried inside.

On Tuesday morning, we collected our capsule, gathered everything together ready to be placed inside and headed down to the main entrance to meet the builders. We filled the capsule with all of the amazing things from each class including; class photographs, signed football shirts and PE kits, letters we had written and lots more!

After we had filled the capsule, we handed it over to the builders, who carefully placed on the lid, sealed it tightly closed and took it inside the building site ready to be buried. We all watched in amazement as the capsule, containing all of our special items, was buried under the foundations of what is going to be our new school building!

Overall, we had a brilliant time burying our school time capsule, it was a truly fantastic occasion and great experience for us all. Who knows, one day in the future somebody may dig our capsule up and will find out all about St. Oswald’s Catholic Primary Class of 2018 and all of the wonderful things that we do in our school! We would like to say another massive thank you to Simon and his team at KrolCorlett for giving us another magnificent opportunity. Make sure you stay tuned to our website and twitter feed for further updates on the progress of our building work!
