COVID T Ime Capsule

COVID-19 Digital Time Capsule

4 December 2020

The Prince Alfred College Archives is a significant and valuable collection of tangible cultural heritage, which documents the unique history of school life at our College.

This has been an unprecedented year globally. Followed by devastating bushfires earlier in the year, we are still feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, here at PAC.

It is important to acknowledge both good and bad and record these school experiences and the student voice in our College Archive. With advice from Mrs. Fitzhenry, our Captains of Well-being Hugo Jordan and Brendan Tomlins and History Journal Captain Liam Hindshaw have led a project to capture images of our 2020 school experience, towards wellbeing. We have received over 1000 images so far, from ELC-Year 12.

At Senior School Assembly last week we presented about 250 of those images to our community via the PAC 2020 COVID 19 Digital Time Capsule.

Donated material adds to the College’s rich narrative and ensures that the College’s research and stories are preserved for the benefit of both current and future generations. Thank you to all who have contributed.
