The junior high school building programme was started in Nanaimo as a result of the large increase in population during the post-war years. John Barsby was the second junior high school in Nanaimo, with Woodlands having been completed in late 1955.

Collection consists of photographs of John Barsby School teachers, students, and classrooms; and opening programs for Woodlands School, Nanaimo Senior High School, and John Barsby Junior High School.

Martin who was a teacher and principal at John Barsby and in School District #68 for 43 years. The scrapbook includes some original photographs.
