WESTERN NEWS Latest Christchurch news at Tuesday April 10 2018 17 SCHOOLS KIDSTUFF Superb quality and variety at Kidstuff FAST FORWARD: Cathedral Grammar pupils buried a time capsule to be opened in 2081. ​ Grammar pupils bury time capsule in Victoria square PUPILS HAVE buried a time capsule in Victoria Square to mark the end of its multi-million dollar restoration. The time capsule was put together by seven and eight-year-olds from Cathedral Grammar School and will be opened for its bicentenary in May 2081. “These young people spend a lot of time in an ever-changing central city so we hope this time capsule helps them develop a connection to Victoria Square, as a place that will be the same for a long time,” said Ōtākaro Ltd chief executive Albert Brantley. Teacher Clare Erasmus said the children were thoroughly excited to be involved in developing the time capsule. “They decided to include items that were popular and relevant in their lives now. They wrote stories about themselves and how life is for them in this day and age,” she said. “A time capsule is something children usually read about. To be a part of such an auspicious moment has been a wonderful memory for them to create.” Fellow teacher Brigid Ladley said a toy owl, which is a class mascot, and a cellphone were among the items students chose to put in the time capsule. “The class had to repeatedly freeze items to reduce the bacteria before they went in the capsule. It was a fascinating process for the students,” Ms Ladley said. Mr Brantley said items relating to the restoration of Victoria Square were also included in the time capsule. “Photos of the restoration work and the people who carried it out have been printed on special archival paper and put in the time capsule. We hope whoever opens the time capsule will be able to appreciate how important this space was in Christchurch’s regeneration.’’ Three-week wilderness adventure for students Twelve Hornby High School students were due to set off yesterday on a three-week wilderness adventure.
