Artistic youngsters from a Chester primary school have created pieces of work representing life in 60 years’ time to place in a time capsule on the site of a stunning new residential and nursing home.
Children from St Theresa’s Catholic Primary School in Blacon let their imaginations run wild to paint futuristic creations for a time capsule to bury in the gardens of Upton Dene Residential and Nursing Home in Caldecott Close this week.
Looking forward to 60 years’ time
Eleven-year-olds Jay Ghomo and Grace Hankin visited the flagship Sanctuary Care home with artwork they have created. The pieces take a futuristic leap forward in time to reveal what life will look in 60 years’ time, when the capsule will be opened.
Both envisaged there being cars that could fly, with Grace picturing trains being driven by robots. Meanwhile Jay thought there would be metallic birds that fly around, carrying people with them.
Faster technology and transported to restaurants…
Teaching assistant Anne Ellis accompanied Jay and Grace on their return visit to the site.
“They really enjoyed the project and we are very proud that our school has been chosen to be a part of it” she said.
“A lot of time has been spent thinking about what kind of technology we will have as things move at such a fast pace. The children have also been talking about the kind of food we will eat and believe we will be teleported everywhere instead of walking!”
“I would love to live here.”
After having a tour around the home, Grace said her favourite part was the hairdressing and beauty salon. She said: “I didn’t like it, I loved it! I would love to live here.”
Hilary Price, the home’s manager said: “We were thrilled to welcome the children along to show them how beautiful our home looks following their visit last year when it was still being built.
“The creativity and imagination shown in their artwork is really impressive - whoever opens the time capsule in 60 years’ time is in for a treat.”
