School on a Day Like Today ... 100 Yrs Ago!!
It's not that cold outside at -12C but it is certainly foggy and dreary! Looking at the old Heart Lake School that was established 100 years ago in 1912, I can only imagine how 'tough' the children were that attended this school! Composed of one room, built out of boards, and standing alone out on the prairie ... exposed to the elements! Heated school buses certainly did not usher the children to and from the school! It amazes me that such history still stands on our prairies and on days like today you can almost step back in time!
