History Club included a number of artifacts in the capsule including a school mug which has a quote from Catherine McAuley (founder the Sisters of Mercy who founded the school) “The proof of love is deed”, a school timetable, a pen, a bible, a prayer book, representations of popular culture and life in 2014, a DVD of the annual Antonian Awards evening and a Teaching School programme.  We also added a brief history of the school and a Kier flag to represent all those who are part of the history of the community at St. Anthony’s who have worked on the design and construction of the new building.
