CHILDREN and staff have buried a time capsule in the grounds of the new Hillside Primary School in Newsome.
They have collected a variety of items and sealed them in a lead time capsule.
A specially engraved plaque has been erected to mark the spot for future generations.
Items chosen for the capsule include photos and artefacts from the former Stile Common junior and infant schools, press cuttings and photographs showing the development of the new school building and merchandise depicting popular culture of today.
Headteacher Dawn Horton said: “In a hundred years time, the grandchildren of our current pupils will look upon our modern artefacts, and our state-of-the-art, eco-friendly school and wonder how we ever managed!”
The £7.4m school includes 12 classrooms, a children’s centre, a hall, a dance studio, a library and a kitchen.
It is among the most energy efficient in Kirklees and features a wind turbine, a biomass boiler and a rain water recycling system.
The time capsule is due to be opened in the year 2109.
