During the 2021 – 22 academic year, all schools were offered a time capsule to commemorate the centenary of Northern Ireland and capture key moments and themes of this anniversary year for pupils of the future. The BRA Pupil Council agreed the contents of the time capsule, which included items which reflected the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on daily life, families and the school community. At a ceremony on 27th May, the capsule was placed in its location within the Crombie foyer by members of the Pupil Council, Mrs Woods, Principal, Mr Hughes, Senior Teacher, our oldest alumna, Mrs Beattie Metcalfe, our youngest Form 1 pupil Amelia Manley and the Head Girl of the 1982 leavers’ cohort, Lesley Bell (nee Jackson). Pupils enjoyed thinking of artefacts to include in the capsule. This included a school crest, the 2021 edition of The Owl magazine, a programme for the 2022 Spring Concert, a face mask, a lateral flow test kit, a memory stick containing promotional videos and hand-written accounts from members of the Pupil Council involved in this project. It is hoped that the contents of the time capsule will create an important part of the School’s history for future generations of pupils to discover.
