Westbury will celebrate 180 years of public education on Friday with a number of events and a fair planned at Westbury Primary School.
About a month ago the school retrieved the 1989 time capsule and it, along with a 2019 capsule, will be reburried on October 25.
Westbury180 communication manager Stacey Tweedale said a call had to go out on Facebook to help find the capsule.
"The commemorative rock had moved, but thankfully we have a great local community and we put the call out ... the gentleman who actually buried it came and said 'nope it's about a metre away'," she said.
The time capsule held well-preserved photos, stories, catalogues, drawings, a school uniform, lego and a coke bottle.
"There were photos of Westbury and we are hoping to replicate those same pictures, so when people open them together they can see how its changed and changed again," she said.
"It was really great to see what was in there, it was a bit of a trip down memory lane for us older people but the kids were very fascinated by it."
The joint 1989 and 2019 capsules will be re-opened at the bicentennial anniversary of Westbury Primary School in 20 years.
