Century-old time capsule uncovered at Enderby school

This past January, the village of Enderby celebrated the opening of its brand new elementary school: MV Beattie Elementary.

Students and staff were keen to pay tribute to the old school and the role it played in the community over the past century, so staff planned to have the cornerstone of the old school installed in a place of honour in the new building.

That's when the time capsule was discovered, explains principal Carl Cooper.
