A TIME capsule buried by pupils at a primary school in Robroyston will remain sealed until 2073.

The capsule by pupils at St Philomena’s Primary School contains a snapshot of local life now and will be buried within the first phase of the Monument Way development by Taylor Wimpey.

All the classes in the school contributed items to the project.

These include letters to their future selves which outline their career aspirations, recent class photos, a Scotland football shirt and boots to commemorate the country’s qualification for UEFA Euro 2024, an old mobile phone, glasses, some of their favourite toys, an analogue clock and a music playlist from P5 and P6.

The time capsule also houses a school tie, a local newspaper and a commemorative St Philomena’s souvenir brochure dating back from 1940 to 1990, which provides a historical overview of the school including pictures of previous teachers.

An interesting addition to the capsule is an old glass milk bottle, found under the school's old gym hall during refurbishments in 2008 and preserved in the depute headteacher’s office.

Mrs McShane, depute headteacher at St Philomena’s Primary School, said: “This has been a fun project for the whole school to be involved in, and it’s been a lovely opportunity for the children to make a little bit of local history in their community.

"This project has been a great way for the children to think about the regular items they use in their everyday life and whether children in the future will still use them in 50 years."

Audrey Ross, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said: "We enjoy being part of the local communities where we build, and a time capsule is a fun way of communicating from the present day to the future.

"Our project with St Philomena’s Primary School is a great way for us to capture some memories of what it’s like to be a child growing up in Robroyston now that I’m sure will make an interesting discovery at the development in years to come when it’s opened."
