University of York Time Capsule
   
 

 

     
 
On the first day of the new school year 2009, a group of Key Stage 2 children were invited to take part in the burial of the Time Capsule on the new Goodrick College site at the University of York. The Pro Vice Chancellor, Elizabeth Heaps, thanked the pupils of Lord Deramore's for their collection of ideas of what pupils in 100 years time might want to know about life in 2009.
   
         
 

As you can see we put in a scooter, school sweatshirt, dictionary, Argos catalogue,

primary planner, mobile phone, memory stick with school information on it, a DVD about school and a CD of our orchestra playing.

   
         
 

As we were visiting a building site the children wore protective clothing -

Mrs Powley had to wear a contractor's boots, as high heels weren't allowed on site!
