Heritage Value
Riverway West School was built on a slope just north of Riverway Road (Marine Drive). From 1922 until 1952, the school operated as a one-teacher school. In 1962, the original building was replaced with a larger structure but declining school enrolments in Burnaby during the 1970s brought about Riverway's closure in the early 1980s.

History/Biography
The original Riverway West School was a one room school house built in 1923 just west of the ravine at Sussex Avenue and Marine Drive. Miss Marion Swanson was the first teacher and the first custodian was Mr. Morrison. Miss Carrie Kidd taught from 1924 to 1935, with the enrolment increasing from eighteen in 1924 to forty-two pupils in 1929, and including grades one to seven. In 1930 grades one to four were at Riverway while the older students went to Nelson. It continued on in this manner; as a one-room school of four grades until 1952. As the school was seen by parents to be “greatly lacking” for students and teachers “in comfortable accommodations and vital equipment necessary for their extra curricular and recreational needs, such as were enjoyed by children in the larger schools” they formed a Parent Teacher Association in September of 1951 to remedy the situation. From the beginning the PTA was very active in making its desires known to the School Board and “the school was very fortunate to have an organisation which put forth such a united effort on behalf of the children”. Their first bazaar fundraiser allowed them to purchase a hot plate and the necessary utensils to provide the students with soup and cocoa during the cold weather. At their request, the School Board improved the electrical wiring in the school (so that they could use the hotplate) and built a roof over the stairs to the basement and provided more sports equipment for the children. Art classes and piano classes were started through the efforts of the members and also (in 1953) a cub pack and a brownie pack with PTA members as Cub Leaders and Brownie Leaders. A ditto machine and the starting of a school library were the direct results of successful bazaars held by the PTA. The PTA also made a survey of the school district in 1951 to analyse the future school population and presented the results to the School Board. Following this, a portable unit was erected beside the existing school house for use the following September (this portable was in use until 1958). In the late 1950s, the PTA approached the School Board and the Burnaby Parks and Recreation Commission and proposed a park on the grounds adjacent to their school to relieve a playfield deficiency. The creation of Riverway West Park was the direct result of this proposal. As Parks Planner Paul Stocksted pointed out in 1961, “All of this would not have been possible had not the people associated with the PTA insisted on the solution to the problem of inadequate play areas.” In 1957 the first unit of the new Riverway West School underwent construction. Designed by Carlberg and Jackson with Remigio Maniaga as the contractor, it was completed in September of 1957 and consisted of four classrooms, an activity room and administration facilities. A two classroom addition (again designed by Carlberg and Jackson) was completed on the last day of 1959; just three months after its construction began. In order to preserve the memory of all that the PTA had accomplished, a Riverway West History Book was created by the 1960-1961 PTA members. Notably; Mrs. R. Eichler, Historian, Mrs. C.L. James, Assistant Historian, Mrs. Gordon Dowding, Photographer and Mr. Rod Beaton who designed the cover.

History/Biography
Kay Rorison North was one of the twin daughters of Burnaby pioneers carpenter William Rorison and his wife Alma Cropley Rorison. Kay and her twin sister Evelyn were nine months old when the family; she and her twin, her parents and two older brothers Bill and Hugh moved to Burnaby in 1922 (the youngest, John, was still to arrive). Her grandmother, Matilda Louise Cropley, bought three acres of land on Marine Drive (then called River Road) in South Burnaby. William Rorison built two houses on that property; one for his family and six years later one for his wife's mother (who was widowed by this time). They built a barn on the property and kept cows, goats and the occasional pig. Her father built wooden toys for the children - even board games. The children enjoyed having their grandmother Cropley living so close to them while they were growing up, especially when they were teenagers and she would have them over for dinner. Kay Rorison went to Riverway West School with thirty-one other children, grades one to four together in the one-room school house. She also attended Sunday school at Riverway mission for eight years and taught it there for another fifteen. Kay Rorison North and her husband Doug have two daughters.
