Time capsule message from Harrington pupils

A Harrington school has been immortalised in a time capsule buried in the school grounds.

FUTURE: Pupils from Beckstone Primary School with some of the items for their time capsule

Beckstone Primary School was given a section of gas pipe from Northern Gas Networks, which carried out roadworks in the area earlier in the year, to use for its time capsule.

Twenty-five pupils from year five came up with ideas for items to place in the capsule which was then buried in a field at the school last week.

The items included fact files of each student, newspapers from the week, a list of the school’s achievements in the last year, photographs of the school and advice from the pupils on how to live life.

Kelsie Batey, 10, said: “We wouldn’t know anything about Victorian people if they didn’t leave things behind. It’s nice that we will all be remembered in the future.”

In April representatives from Northern Gas Networks visited the school to talk to pupils about staying safe during the roadworks.

Artist Mick Hand helped pupils to draw pictures of traffic cones, signs and vans to make into a mural of roadwork theme pictures, which has been placed in the school’s playground.
