September 2017 was our fifth September in our lovely new school. To mark this all the children in Scoil Bhríde Cailíní got involved in a time capsule project.
Each child from 1st class to 6th class contributed a piece of writing to be buried in the time capsule. Children wrote on a variety of themes – their own lives, predictions for the future, new inventions, all about 2017, the history of the school and many others. Even the Junior and Senior infants drew pictures and made hand prints to be included in the capsule.
These stories and samples of art were compiled by Mrs. Kearney and placed in a waterproof container. The container was buried on the school grounds on Thursday 28th October.
The time capsule will remain buried for 20 years and will be dug up in September 2037. I wonder how many of our predictions and inventions will come to pass?
