gym equipment names – The Original
This Parents’ Choice Classic Award Winner is that colossal maze of wood, beads, and wire often seen at the doctor’s office. Beautifully crafted with a 12-by-15-inch solid wood base, thick sturdy wire, and wood beads, this winding wonder keeps little hands and minds busy for hours. The structure consists of five intertwined wires, securely attached at the wood base, adorned with free sliding beads of varied color, shape, size, and pattern. One wire reaches 21 inches at its peak, another makes a complete 360 degree loop. As the child slides beads across the tangle of wires, fine motor coordination and critical thinking skills are developed, as well as an understanding of both spatial relations and depth perception. The Original Rollercoaster washes easily with a damp sponge and squares up neatly in a corner for storage. –Kathryn Gustafson
Maple Grove Elementary School – 1924
Statement of Significance
Description of Historic Place:
Maple Grove Elementary School is situated in the west side residential neighbourhood of Kerrisdale. The school is a three-storey brick-and-stucco structure with a simple, rectangular plan, containing 24 classrooms and 4 open-area classrooms. The main facade faces east onto Cypress Street, with a semi-circular driveway leading to the at-grade double-door main entry. A small lawn graces the front of the school. The outdoor space surrounding the school also contains an adventure playground and playing fields. The property has a park-like feel, with a mix of mature deciduous and coniferous trees, including regularly spaced maples along Cypress Street. Rhododendrons and other foundation plantings are found along the main facade.
Maple Grove Elementary School has heritage value for its history and its architecture. It traces its origins to 1912, when the first Magee School, with combined elementary and secondary classes, was built by the Point Grey School Board, at the corner of Magee Road (now 49th Ave.) and Cypress Street, as a result of the population growth during the tremendous expansion of Vancouver before World War I and the extension of streetcar service to Kerrisdale in 1912. Residential development after the War resulted in overcrowding at Magee School, and lobbying led to the construction of Maple Grove Elementary, adjacent to the Magee School site, in 1924-25. The impact of the baby-boom generation is seen in a classroom and gymnasium addition in 1952, designed by School Board architect E.D. King.
Maple Grove Elementary School is a particularly good example of 1920s school design in its simplification of form and reduced historicist detail, which combines vestigial Classical and Gothic features. Value is found in the architects, Townley and Matheson, and in their use of substantial concrete construction, which contrasts with Vancouver, whose ratepayers balked at the expense.
Value is also found in the survival of standard features that represented good school design, and which responded to the changing curriculum and pedagogy. For example, many classrooms have blackboards and lockers that maximize display space and reflect the drive for ‘efficiency’. This theme was carried over to the use of the departmentalized system of instruction in the 1930s and 1940s, making effective use of space and teachers’ specialized knowledge. Dedicated spaces, such as science and art rooms, facilitated the strategy. Changing pedagogy is also evident in the open learning area created on the 3rd floor in 1971.
Maple Grove’s history reflects the interest its parents took in education. A Parent-Teacher Association was established in 1924, the year the school was built. Parents’ efforts contributed to programs and buildings. Parents equipped the kindergarten in 1957. They have made an ongoing commitment to build the best elementary school library in the Province. As well as being used continuously as an elementary school, Maple Grove has served the community by accommodating overflow classes from Magee High School in the late 1920s and by serving as a Montessori school and a district resource centre.
The school has further heritage value for the collective memory of its past and present staff and pupils. The school is proud of its many ‘distinguished graduates’ and its strong connections to the community. Reunion celebrations, held in 1963, 1984, and 2000 are testimony to the strength of connections felt by alumni.

Corruption In Our Canadian Justice System
Here is my story. (Please have a tissue ready) This is a stressor added onto my every day life that I continue to fight for. Nothing will bring my son Joshua back but I can surely fight to make this wrong RIGHT.
Written by Derrick Finkle for Chatelaine Magazine December 2007
For a few weeks this past spring, Sherry Sherret was probably the most interviewed stay-at home mom in Canada. After she was the focus of a big press conference in Toronto on April 23, a steady stream of reporters began knocking on the door of her small apartment in Belleville, Ont. There, they would meet the round-faced 31-yearold brunette at the centre of one of Canada’s most explosive legal dilemmas.
Inside Sherret’s apartment, these reporters would chat with her talkative, saucer-eyed 19-month-old daughter, Madison, or fight for a spot to sit with Sherret’s three cats. If they spied her stereo equipment, they might strike up a conversation about Sherret’s disc jockeying company. Under different circumstances, these exchanges would seem like banal pleasantries, but in Sherret’s world, the simple presence of her child or the reminder of a sideline pursuit was infused with an almost suffocating weight.
Almost 12 years ago, Sherret was charged with the murder of her four-month-old son, Joshua. Her life was torn apart: Police officers and Crown attorneys scoffed at her proclamations of innocence. The Children’s Aid Society (CAS) took her other son, Austin, then 20 months old, away from her. One of the country’s most reputable pathologists testified in court that he’d bet the house that she’d killed her child. Assessments filed by four different psychologists and psychiatrists claimed Sherret suffered from a wide variety of personality disorders, though they largely disagreed on precisely which ones. No one seemed terribly surprised when Sherret was sent off to prison for a year.
Which explains why so many of these visiting journalists were somewhat taken aback to watch her laugh and play with Madison like any happy mother. Or why they were surprised if Sherret showed them a present day baseball-team photo, sent by the adoptive parents of Austin, now 13, whom she hasn’t seen in eight years, without shedding a tear. Overall, these reporters could only marvel at how level-headed, articulate and downright cheery Sherret was while answering some terribly difficult questions.
But what they were just beginning to understand was that Sherret and those around her had been hit by one of the biggest wrecking balls ever to smash its way through the Canadian justice system. Since those early dark days of grieving, she has endured a prolonged family nightmare that is, in many ways, completely unfathomable. And now, in an effort to clear her name, she will be forced to relive it all again. “I did not kill Joshua,” Sherret will say to her media visitors and, later, to the courts. Sherret isn’t a small woman – she doesn’t have a problem referring to herself as “a big girl” – but her voice is as soft and delicate as a pixie’s. “What I want most of all now is for my other children, Austin and Madison, to know that I loved their brother and had nothing to do with his death. And to do this, all I ask for from the justice system is the opportunity to appeal my conviction.”
Baby Joshua spent much of the four MONTH S of his life in tears. Even the moment after he was born on September 23, 1995, Sherret thought he looked an unhappy shade of purple. The nurses in the delivery room said he was just cold, and they took him away to lie under a heat lamp for a few hours. It didn’t seem to do much good, though. He cried almost incessantly from the moment he was back in her arms. Even when Sherret arrived back at her basement apartment (she lived then in Trenton, Ont., just west of Belleville) after being discharged from the hospital, little Joshua was still screaming non-stop Weeks went by, and he never managed to sleep for more than a couple of hours a day. Equally disconcerting was the fact that the baby also tended to throw up much of what he ate.
It was a lot to handle for a 20-year-old single mother who already had Austin, then a toddler, to keep her eye on. Peter Robinson, Sherret’s boyfriend and Joshua’s father, helped out as much as he could, but he still technically lived at home with his parents while going to school at a nearby college. Austin’s father lived in Nova Scotia, which Sherret’s family had left in 1993 when her father’s military posting was transferred to the base in Trenton, and was out of the picture.
Sherret took Joshua to various doctors and clinics, and even to the emergency department at the hospital on at least a half-dozen occasions throughout the fall and early winter, worried about his crying, vomiting and lack of sleep and how he sometimes seemed to have trouble breathing. She bristled every tim
