History/Biography
Edmonds School can trace its history back to the opening of the first school in Burnaby in 1894. The "Burnaby school" was a typical one-room school house constructed on a small site on the opposite side of Canada Way (then named Douglas Road) and 18th Avenue. In 1896 when West Burnaby school was built the school was renamed the "East Burnaby School." By 1908 the original small school house and its little playground became too small to contain the growing number of school-aged children living in the area. That year the Municipality of Burnaby and the Burnaby School Board funded a new four room school to house 75 students on the present site facing Edmonds Street. This building was known for many years as the old "gray school" because of its drab paint colour. In 1913 a four room addition completed this school which was then renamed the "Edmonds Street School." In 1922 the school was was expanded with a new four room "bungalow" building on the Douglas Road side of the property. By 1925 four more rooms were added to house the student population of this rapidly growing district which peaked at 580 by 1930. After World War II the old school was designated as a junior high school and in 1949 the present building was opened on an expanded site. By 1953 and 1955 the school received more additions to accommodate a student enrolment that had expanded to thirteen hundred students. The original gray building was demolished in 1956 and the bungalow building, which had served for many years as the elementary school was destroyed by fire in 1989.
