Time capsule immortalises pupils old and new at Redbridge school
A time capsule full of carefully chosen artefacts from a school has been buried at the construction site for its new building.
Students, staff and governors from Beal High School in Woodford Bridge Road, Redbridge, attended the ceremony to mark the school’s past, present and future.
Cllr Felicity Banks, the Mayor of Redbridge, placed the capsule, containing school ties, 20-year-old school pictures and photos of a typical day at Beal High, at the site of the new Key Stage 3 building.
Associate headteacher Steve Baker said: “We really enjoyed the day because the students, who organised the project, could move forward and see the fruits of their labours.”
Students from Years 7, 8 and 9 were at hand to help.
