PUPILS of Ellesmere Port Catholic High have created a time capsule which was buried on the school grounds at the end of last year.

The Year 9 history students captured the life of the school and town in 2008 for future generations to enjoy.

Every child completed a profile sheet providing information about their own lives, which was written on archival paper, using archival ink.

They had to wear cotton gloves to reduce the risk of the paper decaying.

Pupils also had video footage showing interviews with people on issues such as film, music, sport, fashion, television and current affairs.
