KEW WOODS PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS GO BACK TO THE FUTURE

Pupils from Kew Woods Primary School have gone ‘back to the future’ by burying a time capsule, reflecting life in 2017, at the David Wilson Homes (DWH) North West’s Pavilion Gardens development in Southport.

With the help of Sefton Councillors, Mike Booth and Fred Weavers, the pupils were invited to give students of the future an idea of what life was like in 2017. DWH Northwest and Dave Pickup, Site Manager, was also on hand to help the school council and eco club pupils dig a suitable spot to bury the artefacts, which will not be unearthed until 2117 – 100 years from now.

The contents of the time capsule included documents from the school’s curriculum, the children’s book Charlie and the Factory, artwork forecasting the pupils’ vision of 2117, photographs of the school today, a school newsletter and the school’s code of conduct.

Kew Woods Primary School is positioned just a short walk from the Pavilion Gardens housing development, which offers a collection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes. Located a short walking distance from local restaurants, schools, and family pubs, the housing complex is situated just 2 miles from Southport’s town centre.

Commenting on the time capsule burial, Cllr Fred Weavers said: “It was fantastic to see pupils from Kew Woods Primary put such great efforts into collecting artefacts for future generations to discover. The children truly embraced the challenge and it’s great to see the school and DWH working together as part of the local community.”

School teacher at Kew Woods Primary, Hannah Shotton, said: “Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the time capsule project and found coming up with ideas a fascinating challenge. As a school, we’re very proud to have contributed to our local history.”

Andrew Taylor, DWH Planning Director said: “It has been a privilege working on the Pavilion Gardens site since we began the development last year and we thank both the school and Councillors for helping us to celebrate the success so far. We look forward to working closely with the local community throughout the course of the project.”
