Student Time Capsule
School Librarian, Ms Kelly and School Archivist Andrew Whiteside are curating a digital time capsule to record student responses to the current situation. This is a school-wide project and will mark a moment in KH history. Students can make their entry during our final week of the school term — .25-29 May. General instructions are attached along with a Junior students version and a Senior Student version.
About the Time Capsule
As we near the middle of what could be a six-month closure of the school, it’s worth remembering that there was a previous occasion when the school was closed for several months to protect students and staff from illness. The closure lasted from October 1890 to February 1891. During the next academic year, we hope to spend time discovering more about that period of the school’s history.
In the meantime, we would like to put on record the thoughts and ideas of students about their experience of the current school closure and the pandemic crisis. The school’s library and archives will curate and preserve a digital time capsule of short items contributed by students with the intention of informing future students about this major event in history.
Submissions to the time capsule (up to 30 seconds of video or 100 words of speech) can be in a variety of forms:
- an open letter
- a poem
- a song
- a dance
- a work of art
- photographs of items of relevance to the lockdown
The closing date for submissions is 31 May 2020.
