Administrative history

Burquitlam Elementary School was founded in 1970 under School District No. 43. It was responsible for providing public education from preschool to Grade 7 to members of the neighbourhood of Burquitlam and also offered a daycare program and programs and services to children with special needs. Throughout its history, Burquitlam Elementary School was faced with three probable school closures (in 1979, 1984, 1987) and finally closed in 2003 due to budget cuts in the School District. Currently, the Mediated Learning Academy is housed in the old Burquitlam Elementary School building.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The file contains the contents of a time capsule that was created in 1995 to commemorate Burquitlam Elementary School's 25th Anniversary, and was intended to be opened at the school's 50th anniversary in 2020. However, Burquitlam Elementary School closed in 2003, and the box was never opened.

The file consists of 25th anniversary ephemera, but is largely composed of textual records written by the students in Divisions 2, 4, 5, and 6, recounting their favourite academic and personal moments of 1995. Photographs in the file also depict students learning and playing outdoors, as well as class Halloween photographs.
