Heritage Value
Burnaby's fourth school was originally called Dundonald school and was opened in 1905. The building cost $600.00 to erect and was built on a small clearing of land in the middle of what was described as a dense forest. The attendance in the first year consisted of 13 children from three families: the Byrne, Woolard and Thrussell families. The school was later renamed Riverway East School and was replaced in 1953 by Glenwood Elementary School.
