Today we invited Kim Murtagh to our class to explain about the Time Capsule that is to be sealed on May 25th of this year at Gabriel's Gully. We learnt that the reason it is being sealed on May 25th is because this is the date that Gabriel Read first discovered gold in Gabriel's Gully in 1861.
Kim showed us alot of the memorabilia that is being stored in the Time Capsule which was very interesting. There were lots of items related to Lawrence Area School, for example class photos, the 2010 school magazine, class lists from 2011 and the brochure about Lawrence created by the Room 3 students two years ago (who are now Room 4 students).
Kim shares with Room 4 some of the memorabilia being stored in the Time Capsule
We presented Kim with a copy of our Room 4 Witness to place inside the Time Capsule. Kim told us that the Time Capsule will be opened in 50 years time to coincide with the 200th celebrations. It was amazing to think that the students will all be 57, 58 or 59 years old when this happens. Lots of us would like to be there to see the Time Capsule opened.
