Back to School – King Edward Time Capsule

 In cSPACE News

We are looking for you to share your memories that define the spirit of King Edward School with us!  We need your help to build a time capsule commemorating King Edward’s storied 90 years of service as a school as well as to mark the building’s new life as cSPACE King Edward, a hub for creativity in 2017!

Former students, teachers and staff are encouraged to share favourite memories of King Edward.  From ghosts, to favourite teachers, sneaking into the attic, first love, and planting hollyhocks – think “Back to School”.  Selected stories and photos will be enclosed underneath the school’s historic boiler doors, displayed under glass and inset into the original terrazzo flooring on the first level of the building for the next hundred years!

Stories and photos may be shared with our audience through newsletters, social media, and a digital history project that may be installed permanently in the building.  Alumni are encouraged to reconnect and spread the word to those they went to school with for this commemorative project. The time capsule will be uncovered in 2062 – commemorating the the 150th anniversary of the building.

How to submit your memories:

  • Alumni may submit their memories to  Digital stories and pictures may be submitted (we will print these on archival paper for inclusion).
  • Please indicate if we are able to share your story in our newsletter/social media.
  • Due to limited space, at this time we are not accepting artifacts for the capsule but please contact us if you would like to donate an artifact from the school.
  • Deadline: November 15, 2016
