Ashwood High School, Ashwood

TIME CAPSULE: Sealed and Laid Down by Year 12 Students- 27 Oct 1994 Opened- 26 Oct 2019 All items in and related to the Time Capsule are recorded in this record

Historical information

On Saturday, 26 Oct 2019, a small band of nine Ashwood College Year 12 students from (1988-1994) gathered at the Notting Hill Hotel for a social get-together to celebrate 25 years after their graduation. To mark this special occasion, a Time Capsule which they had sealed and laid down on the night of their graduation dinner in 1994 (To be opened in 25 years), was brought from the school by an earlier Alumni student, Volunteer School Archivist, Christopher Boddy (1961-1966) and his wife, Kathy. There was much excitement at what the capsule may hold, and a group photo was taken to mark the occasion. After some difficulty in removing the cap, the Time Capsule was duly opened with a hammer and drift to reveal its contents. There were many school artifacts of newsletters, timetables, magazines and more to remind them of their years at the school together with reminders of significant world events, information about Australian, Victoria and the local area. The first Year 12 Time Capsule Committee of three was represented by Andrew Breeden. Fellow students- Julie-Anne Briffa, Janna Frail, Nathan Galea, Kieth Lu, Elizabeth Mark, Sam Poutakidis, Michael Scott and Christian Smith were all present on the evening.

Significance

The Time Capsule was laid down on 27 Oct 1994 by the Year 12 Students of 1994 to remind them of their years at the school together with reminders of significant world events, information about Australian, Victoria and the local area.

Newspaper Cutting - School Diary Presented to Ashwood High

Ashwood High School, Ashwood

Newspaper cutting not including the date of issue

Historical information

Newspaper cutting with article describing a Leather bound Diary/Album known at the school as "The Big Book" was made by Mr. P. Hallo for the Parents and Citizens Association in which notable events at the school will be recorded. It was presented to the school Headmaster, Mr. M.V. Butler on 15 Sep 1959. The next morning Mr. L. Matthews presented the diary to the prefects who accepted it on behalf of the pupils. Mr. Matthews said that everyone was appreciative of the work by Mr. P. Hallo who was responsible for setting up the book. He hoped that the achievements of the school which would be recorded in the diary would be equal to the standard of the craftsmanship in its making. The parents and Citizens had presented not an ordinary diary because they thought that the school would not be satisfied with average standards and that the sight of the book in the school entrance would inspire pupils to develop the highest traditions of work at the school. Prefects Wilma Riddell and Kenneth Hodder received the diary and Colin Baker thanked Mr. Matthews and the Parents and Citizens' Association on behalf of the pupils.
