June 21 was a special day for Everleigh State School's first Prep students, as they sealed a time capsule to be opened at their graduation.
Time travellers' passports, polaroid photos from an on-site photo booth and more were locked away in the chest and won't be seen again until 2028.
Enriching Communities Founder Suzanne Guastini said although the capsule was preserving the children's history, it was done with their future in mind.
"We did this to mark a special year in the children's lives," Ms Guastini said.
"They can record this moment in time and then look back and see how much they have grown.
"We're trying to plant the seed for them to think about what their lives can be."
Other items included in the capsule included gifts from Division 11 Councillor and Deputy Mayor Natalie Willcocks and aerial photographs of the site provided by Everleigh developers Mirvac, which will be recreated in 2028 to show the community's growth.
A photo from the school's opening in February, featuring State Members Linus Power and Charis Mullen along with Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Education Minister Grace Grace was also locked away.
Rounding out the inclusions were a letter from Ms Guastini and current editions of The Jimboomba Times, The Courier Mail and The Australian.
Ms Guastini said the project, which was supported by Mirvac, had also been met with enthusiasm from the school.
"I'd like to recognise the efforts made by Everleigh State School," she said.
"They worked on this community project with such enthusiasm."
Everleigh State School Foundation Principal Nicole Wheatley said she was eagerly anticipating the opening of the capsule, which preserved moments from a significant year.
"It's a great way to capture the beginning of our school and capture the thoughts of our first prep students," Ms Wheatley said.
"It'll be good to see how different they are in seven years' time when they come back and reflect."
Ms Wheatley also said it had been a good year for the school so far, despite some challenges early on.
"It's been great," she said.
"Obviously the beginning of the year had its challenges but we had some absolutely fantastic support from the community.
"The teachers and staff have all been brilliant, and it's an honour to be the Foundation Principal."
