Osler School teamed up with the Town of Osler to help pick up garbage throughout the community on Friday, April 29.
The town supplied the students with bags and gloves for the town wide clean up and also rewarded the children with treats, when they were done picking up garbage.
Each grade at the school contributed in picking up litter. The town expected to see 200 plus students involved with the initiative.

Laughter could be considered music to the ears though as this wickedly funny play integrates Low German into the dialogue with a type of high culture meeting folk culture interaction.

Growing up around people who knew how to tell a story and enjoy some good humour rubbed off on Ethel.
