July 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Before leaving for their summer holidays, students from the three Bedales schools (Dunhurst, Dunannie and Bedales Senior School) filled and buried three time capsules under the floors of three new staff houses being built within the school grounds.

Children at Dunannie filled their time capsule with a variety of items ranging from handmade bees, pictures of the Queen and Dunannie, and writing about themselves, to an ‘Olympic’ medal and a Bedales bear. Gulf War veteran ex-Royal Navy Chief Petty Officer Allen Parton and his assistance dog EJ (Endal Junior) from Petersfield based charity Hounds for Heroes which the school supports,  were present at the assembly when the time capsule was filled and so also inserted some Hounds for Heroes dog tags.

Dunhurst collated letters from pupils to future inhabitants of the earth, posters advertising the last five school plays, various school t-shirts, a candle, Bic pen, newspaper,  paperback book, friendship letter, ruler and some coins.

Bedales’ time capsule contained various school brochures and publications, and a map of the Bedales estate, as well as a Bedales t-shirt, yo-yo, pencil, key-ring and tea towel. Block 5 (year 11) students included various essays they had written and girls from Steephurst, the boarding house, contributed a folder of photographs of the recent refurbishment and some Steephurst cutlery and crockery.

It is hoped that when these time capsules are dug up, students of the future will be able to gain an insight into the lives of the three schools, their students, daily life and the world in 2012.
