Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Crofton House School, located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a private, non-denominational girls' day school. Crofton House School was founded in 1898 by the Gordon sisters, Miss Jessie Gordon and Miss Mary Gordon, in their father's home on Georgia Street with just four girls. Three years later, in 1901, the school moved to the corner of Jervis and Nelson in the West End. The name Crofton House was suggested by memories of the "Crofton Cottages" just outside Cambridge. The ivy leaf, the emblem of the Gordon clan, was chosen as the school emblem, and the motto became "servabo fidem" (I will keep the faith). Also, the school used to be a boys and girls school, but later on was just all girls. For many years there was a boarding house, called now the 'old residence', which is now the school's office that used to have girls living in it. This was a boarding house up until 1990.show more
