Scoil Mhuire Náisiúnta Cora Finne

Time Capsule

As part of our 1916 Commemoration Celebrations, the staff and pupils of Scoil Mhuire Corofin, put together a time capsule with a variety of objects, including a photo album of photos from our Proclamation Day, a postage stamp from 2016, an example of fourth class homework, a Nintendo DS and smartphone, copies of local newspapers from that week and the 2016 Proclamation devised by pupils in 5th and 6th class. Our thanks to Ms. Olive Garry who organised the making of the time capsule, the assembly of the items, the sealing of the time capsule and its safe delivery for storage in the Clare Heritage Centre here in Corofin. Below is a picture of Ms. Garry with 6th class pupils and Aisling O'Loughlin, staff member at Clare Heritage Centre with the engraved time capsule which will hopefully be opened in 100 years!
