Keepmoat Sponsors Time Capsule

15th July 2016

Keepmoat, the company who is building the housing on the old school site, has kindly sponsored a new time capsule project in our school.  The original time capsule was buried on the old site as part of the Millennium celebrations and was recovered before building work began earlier this year.  The salvaged contents of the original capsule have been put into the new capsule along with some wonderful work from all of the children in the school.  Mrs Stuart says, ‘This special project has been a fantastic historical exploration!  Every single child has contributed to the capsule, and in doing so, has become a part of the legacy and heritage of Throckley Primary School’.  Thank you to Peter Cockbain from Newcastle City Council, Michael Dunthorne, Operations Director of Keepmoat and Councillor Linda Wright for attending our ceremony.  The capsule is sealed until the year 2050 and will be displayed at the front of the school.
