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

The records were donated to the City of Coquitlam Clerk's Office in 2005, but no paperwork has been found about the donor. The records were acquired by the City of Coquitlam Archives on January 11, 2018 and given a preliminary listing.

Scope and content

The subseries consists of formal class portraits and staff portraits; photographs of student activities; certificates documenting the awards, appreciation and commendation of the school and the success of its programs; and some photographic slides and textual records about the school's potential closure in 1987.
