You are the reporters for this news sheet which tries to keep you
in touch with the School of today and the School of yester-year. You will
see by this issue that many bits of news came in through the summer
months ■ — most encouraging! BUT what about the next issue? — and the
next?! Jot down anything of interest you may hear about O.B.'s. Write
a note or a penny post-card to The Andrean, at the School, with your
news. It all helps to strengthen the "ties" that bind! You might be sur-
prised to learn about the number of reunions that have taken place as
the result of a news item in The Andrean. And of course, if you do not
keep us posted about a change of address — well?!!
-ROUND AND ABOUT THE SCHOOL
At this time last year, the news 'round and about high-lighted the
physical upheaveal of plant and terrain in preparation for new buildings
and renovations. A year later, it seems incredible that the new facilities
already are an integral part of the School and the wonder is how we
got along without them. We have really got a set-up "to the king's taste".
It would take too long to describe in detail all the changes that have
taken place (You will have to come to see for yourself!) — but here
are a few major features. The old Dining Hall (Upper School) and Mac
'ROUND AND ABOUT THE SCHOOL (Continued)
House Dining Hall no longer exist. The former, along with kitchens, in-
firmary, staff quarters, etcetera, has been converted into a boys' residence
— called for now — "Fourth House". The latter has been turned into a
new infirmary for the whole school (two resident nurses). The new Great
Hall (dining) accommodates the whole School. There are no more class-
rooms in Mac House. These have become dorms, common-rooms, etcetra.
All classes are taken in Dunlap Hall and the new classroom wing of the
Kenneth Ketchum Auditorium. Classes are no longer held in the basement
(Geography Room and the room behind the Little Theatre). Classroom No.
1 (old Maths Room) is now an Art-cum-classroom. No. 3 (old History Room)
is now equipped as a third lab. The new Kenneth Ketchum Auditorium
with its auxiliary facilities is a superb addition — already well-used. The
landscaping around the new buildings, along with new roads, etcetera,
has not altered the old beauty of the campus but rather extended it.
You will be impressed. Naturally, there remain many little things to be
done before complete rehabilitation takes place but to those who were
around the School a few weeks before opening day, it seemed miraculous
that opening was on schedule and that everything proceeded more-or-less
normally (e.g. Dunlap Hall classroom renovations not completed; chairs
for the Great Hall arrived at 5.00 a.m. on opening day; new desks for
classrooms arrived two weeks after opening — meanwhile make-shift;
etcetera)! A new House arrangement has been put into effect. Mac
House still has the lower forms (grades 7, 8, 9) but each of the other
three Houses has boys from all forms (Third Form up). Upper Sixth boys
live in all four Houses and have assumed more responsibility. The whole
of Upper Sixth (32) sits at the High Table at lunch-time in the Great Hall
and are Table-Heads at other meals. Football teams show promise of a
good showing this year. Note the dates of L.B.F. games and come on out.
The Stratford production of "Macbeth" was attended by Third Form and
up. The first issue of the new literary magazine, "Script" was a creditable
effort. Have you seen a copy? The Ken Ives have acquired a house on
Old Yonge Street, opposite the School. (Ken — after 25 years in the
same rooms in Mac House!) The Stan Macfarlanes are back from Spain
and are "living out" — on Yonge Street — not far north of the School.
Bob Laidlaw is chipper as ever. Three new Masters have joined the
Staff — Gordon Moffatt ('26), Latin and Maths, Courtney Stoate, French,
James Mainprize, History and French, Miss Betty Kinch. nursing staff. A
few weeks ago, the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada held a
judging rally on the Front Quad at the School — interesting diversion for
the boys apart from the fact that four football games were in progress
at the same time! Never a dull moment 'round and about the School! —
or perhaps it depends on the point of view'
