FUTURE generations will be admiring the art work of Cefneithin school children after the pupils created a time capsule.

Pupils at Ysgol Cefneithin Primary School were challenged to design a house of the future, complete with eco features to help halt climate change by building firm Persimmon Homes.

On Wednesday last week, 24 pupils- aged between eight to 11- braved Storm Barney and made the short walk to Persimmon Homes West Wales’ Maes y Parc development, situated off Heol Y Parc.

The children then watched as their drawings were put inside a weatherproof time capsule and buried on site.

They were also given a talk about safety around building sites and how science is used in construction.

Rowland Grant, site manager at Maes y Parc, said: “We always strive to engage with the communities in which we operate, and it was great to welcome the children to the development.

“They had produced some super drawings with interesting ideas of how houses might look in the future.

“Who knows, maybe the time capsule will be unearthed one day and people will be able to enjoy the pictures again.”

Mrs Beverley Owen, headteacher of the school, added: “The children really enjoyed visiting the building site and seeing the time capsule buried – even if the visit was during Storm Barney.

“It’s been a great way to get the children thinking about house building and being green. Who knows, maybe there are some budding builders amongst them.”

Maes y Parc is Persimmons new development of 127 two, three and four bedroom homes.
