Pupils from a leading North Yorkshire school attempted to capture what life is like in 2016 as they joined thousands of pupils across the country to celebrate the golden jubilee of the Boarding Schools’ Association.
Pupils from boarding house at Cundall Manor School, based near Topcliffe, North Yorkshire, buried the time capsule to mark national boarding week.
Items include a school prospectus, yearbook, calendar, a recent sports day itinerary, coins, a mobile phone, the Cundall cookbook, a school scarf and a letter from a pupil at the school.
Hundreds of other schools in the BSA simultaneously took part in the event. The time capsules will be opened at the 75th anniversary of the BSA in 2041.
Housemaster, Gary Coates, was pleased to commemorate the event. He said: “The Golden Jubilee of the BSA is a big event. For us as a boarding school, it allows us to join in with the celebration nationwide.”
He added: “It was really interesting asking our boarders what they would like to put in the time capsule. I am sure that in 25 years’ time, our collection will prove interesting for future Cundall boarders and boarding staff.”
