The Oakland, Calif. school has been doing this community service project for years but has never found gold
Doing community service doesn't usually yield more than a sense of pride and a better neighbourhood but that wasn't the case for a group of grade six students in California.
For the past 15 years, a group of students from St. Paul's Elementary school in Oakland have been going to a local lake once a week to help clean up trash.
They usually just find junk, but last week they noticed something that was out of the ordinary.
They found two 7-kilogram canvas sacks full of silver and gold rings, bracelets, watches, candle holders and commemorative coins.
