Construction Underway At Fraser River Middle School

November 20, 2014

John Robson Elementary School is starting to take shape as a new middle school in New Westminster. The site has nearly a century of history as a school, beginning as early as 1921 when the provincial jail was first renovated as a high school, a few years later replaced with the existing elementary school. A feature of the school redesign is the retention of “archaeological” remnants of the John Robson School in the form of some retained foundations and design elements, suggestive of the shape of the old school, and the existing copper cupola, re-purposed and moved from its existing location to the ground below as a gazebo.
