A DECADE LATER: EAST HILL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO OPEN TIME CAPSULE

Repercussion Theatre

MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 23, 2010 – Sealed under the watchful eye of students, staff and administration in the spring of 2000, East Hill Elementary School in Rivière des Prairies is set to open their Millennium Time Capsule on Friday, October 15  at 6:30 p.m. at Le Chateaubriand (7985 Maurice-Duplessis).

Invited to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime event are the very same 450 students, staff and administration that were present and participated in the original time capsule ceremony. At that time, each student was given a toilet paper roll in which to fill with any written messages or tiny objects that had a special meaning to them.

“The time capsule was originally prepared with the theme of  ‘What Will You Be Doing in 10 Years?’ and it will be very interesting to see where the students thought they would be and how accurate their realities are from their dreams,” said Maria Di Perna, current principal of East Hill Elementary School.

For the past decade, the time capsule has remained untouched in the school’s foyer.  Following the ceremony, everyone in attendance will have the evening to catch up over a buffet dinner and music.
