  • 1976

A pamphlet made for the opening of the original Myrtle Philip Elementary School which opened October 26, 1976. The pamphlet lays out the programme for the opening day. The programme begins with O Canada, followed by an Invocation by Mr. Gary McLeod, then a welcome by Mr. Fougberg (chairman of the board), then a greeting from the Mayor Pat Carleton, then some remarks from the Architect Mr. Davies and by one of the builders Mr. Storm, this will be followed by the entertainment provided by the pupils and introduced by the Principal Mr. Griffin, then there will be a thanking of the pupils by Mrs. M. Marchant, this will be followed by the introduction of the guest speaker Mr. E. A. Maglio the districts superintendent of schools, then an address and unveiling of plaque by Mrs. J. Phillipson the associate deputy minister of education, and finally closing remarks by Mrs. M. Philip.
The school opened with 57 students but the number of students quickly outgrew the school and a new school was built in 1992 and the original Myrtle Philip Elementary School was torn down to make way for Whistler Village, and now the Delta hotel sits where the school used to be.
