Young students showcase Centenary Time Capsule projects

Primary school youngsters attend event to showcase projects created as part of the club's centenary celebrations.

Young students across the city have been working hard on special time capsule projects as part of Leeds United's centenary celebrations.

As part of the initiative, the local primary schools involved were all invited to an exclusive event to give some of the pupils the chance to showcase the ideas they'd come up with and the work they'd been doing along with sharing what they'd learned about Leeds United and the city of Leeds during the research project.

Joining the teachers and students at the event, which was held at Elland Road recently, were the entire Leeds United Under-18s squad, Daniel Chapman, John Howe, Leeds United tour guides and a special appearance from Lucas the Kop Cat - all keen to meet and chat with the children and learn more about all of the work they'd been doing over the last few weeks.

Since the schools returned at the start of September, students in both Year 5 and 6 at over 30 primary schools across Leeds have been working on unique and creative projects that will look at either the entire 100 year history of Leeds United or a particular time in the history of the club and city to help mark the special centenary birthday on the 17th October.

The winning school’s entry will be officially unveiled as part of the centenary matchday activities during the Birmingham City fixture on Saturday 19th October, with the project being placed into a Centenary Time Capsule in the player’s tunnel, meaning it will become a permanent part of the club.

A big thank you to all of the students that have been involved in the Centenary Time Capsule project and good luck with your projects.
