In 2014, Year 6 students at St Peter’s Primary School buried a time capsule in the grounds of St Peter’s to celebrate the end of their primary school years and their time at St Peter’s. The capsule was to be opened in 2020 to mark the end of their formal school years. The students returned to their ‘old’ primary school at the end of Term 3, 2020 (their last week of year 12) to open the capsule.
Inside the capsule was a letter to each student from their Year 6 self to their Year 12 sharing their hopes and aspirations for the future, as well as, recalling many fond memories of their time at St Peter’s. Also included, was a letter from their parents, written at that time, letting them know how special they are and wishing them well for the future.
Despite the fact that the opening of the capsule had to be done within COVID restrictions and parents were not permitted to attend, it was a wonderful opportunity for the students as they recalled many fond memories of their primary years and saw how much their old school had changed since their Year 6 graduation.
It was also a great opportunity to catch up with their former Year 6 teachers, Mr Justin Post and Mrs Do Hughes, who presented them with their time capsule letters.
Each student expressed how much they missed being at St Peters and what a special place it is.
Well done St Peter’s Class of 2014!
