Time Capsule Event

 

Sir Frank Whittle Studio School has hosted another landmark event in the short history of the school.

Organised by Year 12 Business Students, plans started in January 2016 to bury a time capsule in the school grounds later in the year.  The event was organised for Friday 10th June starting at 2pm.

Five students co-ordinated the many jobs to ensure the day ran smoothly including inviting special guests and planning refreshments.

Working closely with OLD’s designers and engineers who helped develop the idea, the students designed the Capsule including dimensions and contents.  They decided the material should be aluminium and the burial site should be marked by a tree and a plaque which was made at the school.  The Capsule had been shaped to look like a Frank Whittle jet engine in keeping with the 75th anniversary of the first powered flight and of course, the name of the school.

The time capsule will be buried for 20 years ready for the staff and students of 2036 to discover.
