Before the half term holiday children brought home a letter about an exciting time capsule competition. The competition is only open to children from St. John's school.
The winners, one from each year group, will have their letter sealed in the time capsule in Belper's new library that is been built on Derwent Street. The time capsule will be 'buried' into a wall of the library and will have a display window so that visitors to the library are able to see it.
The time capsule will be sealed and buried in 2020 and we expect that the winning children will be at the library for the burying as guests of honour along with other local dignitaries.
The letter will be opened in many years time - when the children will be adults. I hope that they take the opportunity to get involved in this once in a lifetime opportunity to shape and record our local history.
Entries need to be returned to Mrs. Wojcik at school by Friday 15th November.
