Hit the Books


John Robson Community School at 8th and Royal. I love the little rotunda on the roof!

John Robson was the owner and editor of the British Columbia newspaper from 1861 to 1868. During this time he campaigned for free, non-sectarian education for children. In 1883 he was elected to the provincial legislature, and in 1889 became the eighth premier of British Columbia until his death in 1892.
