Did you attend or work at Lynn Valley Elementary School from 1920-2004? Maybe you are in this Lynn Valley School photo of Miss Stewart's Grade 4 class in 1934? If so, the North Vancouver Archives want to hear from you today! The old Lynn Valley School building (no. 4), and our current home, is turning 100 this September.
The NVMA is inviting past students and staff to share their Lynn Valley School stories with us by participating in an Oral History project to celebrate the 100-year anniversary. The heart of any community is the stories we share with one another about our lives. To this end, the NVMA is recording personal accounts of attending and/or working at the fourth Lynn Valley School.
Your recollections will be selected for inclusion in “A Landmark Transformed: 100 Years of Serving the Community” a series of celebration events that will be online and at the Archives at starting in September and continuing through December 2020.
Your contribution will also become part of the NVMA’s oral history collection and will be preserved in the Archives of North Vancouver for future generations.
If you are interested in participating, or for more information, please contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone: 604-990-3700-8012 for reference historian Daien Ide or 604-990-3700-8011 for archivist Jessica Bushey.
