Can anyone remember where our time capsule is?
That's the question on the minds of organisers of the forthcoming 50th anniversary of the Cootamundra E A Southee Public School.
A parent whose children attended the school in the 1980s and 90s, Chris Leahy, says the capsule was prepared by students in 1988 to coincide with a Bicentennial celebration of the opening of Parliament House on 9 May.
Ms Leahy visited the Herald recently and found a report about the celebration, at which children and staff wore colonial clothes, sausages were sizzled, songs were sung, an accordian was played, and medals were presented, but there was no mention of a time capsule.
"People recall the capsule was placed somewhere, but no-one made a record of exactly where." Ms Leahy said.
"One former student thought it might have been at the post office, while another thinks it was buried near the flagpole at the school - but neither is 100% sure.
"We'd like to open it for the school's 50th on 2 November, so if anyone can remember, please give the school a call."
