Rochester’s St Joseph’s Primary School celebrated the opening of a time capsule from December 9, 1988, on Friday.
Principal Peter Teggelove told community members, students, parents and past teachers the contents of the capsule were damaged by the January 2011 flood.
‘‘Although the contents may not have physically survived, it brought us together to share the memories,’’ he said.
The water-damaged items were still displayed for children to see.
Students picked up cassettes with curiosity and principal Peter Teggelove explained they were once used to play music.
Among the contents were a video tape of the school mass in 1988, a religious banner, a diary, photos and a bottle of port.
