Burying memories for a future school generation
1:30pm Friday 6th July 2012 in News
WHETHER it is the Olympic torch relay or the games themselves, the Diamond Jubilee or the visit of the Queen, 2012 is a momentous year.
And to celebrate the Warrington Guardian challenged schools across the town to come up with the best ideas for what could be buried in a time capsule to mark the occasion.
And they did us proud with nine beating the rest of the competition to win the prize of a time capsule donated to schools with the help of our sponsors.
From pictures of this year’s students to menus from school dinners and recordings of songs to Olympic momentos, the capsules will now be packed and buried to be dug up in the future.
Nicola Priest, group editor of the Warrington Guardian, said she was delighted with the response.
She added: “We have been fortunate to have such amazing events to report on this year.
“They have provided many happy memories already and there will be plenty more to come.
“So to be able to capture those in time capsules for future generations to unearth was something we were very keen to do.
“We have been pleasantly surprised and delighted with the quality of the responses. Clearly students have put a lot of time and effort into thinking of ideas and the winning schools certainly were deserving.
“I hope they have many lasting memories of coming up with the ideas and of putting the capsules together for the future.”
