Capsule buried at Welwyn Garden City school
A TIME capsule has been put together and buried by WGC pupils to welcome a new on-site children’s centre.
The new Sure Start Children’s Centre, which is being built later this year at Rowans Primary School, is to be called The Waterside Centre.
And to mark the occasion, pupils have buried items alongside the building, to allow future generations to discover what school life was like in 2010.
A selection of different items were put up for a vote in an online poll and pupils decided what would make the final cut, to be inserted in the capsule.
In the end it contained a mix of school-related objects, including a school t-shirt, lunch menu, a drawing of the school, photograph, a band and a magnet.

Headteacher Teresa Skeggs said: “The capsule is being buried in the hope that children of the future will find it and see what the school was like in 2010.”
Sure Start Children’s Centres are being developed all over the country as a “one-stop shop”, working to support childcare, early education, health and families with youngsters under five.
