from the Headmaster 

This edition of the Ashburian reflects the collective efforts of a new 
faculty and student team which has provided the enthusiasm and 
organizational leadership to see deadlines were met and photos taken 
so we could all enjoy this record of our 2001-2002 school year. The 
Junior school continues their tradition of superb yearbook quality. I 
trust when you read this today or in twenty years that these pages will 
ignite your memory of some amazing students, teachers and events. 
Amidst the daily rigour, routines and structure of Ashnury lies the kind 
heart, accepting smile and long lasting friendhip of students and staff. 
This school year will be forever memborable with the tragedy of 
September 11th and the resulting war on terrorism and economic 
uncertainty. I was happy to note the change in mood in February when 
our attention moved to the Winter Olympics. The gold medals for the 
Women's and Men's Hockey Team and the accomplishnments of 
athletes from over 40 countries inspired all of Ashbury and Canada. 
We enjoyed outstanding student leaderhip this year from School 
Captain Danielle Simpson, House Captains and from the Student 
Souncil. House spirit and participation in house skits, public speaking, 
airbands and special events are at a very high level. Who of us will 
forget the enthusiam and humour of President Pat on Monday morning? 
It is often said that you will get out of Ashbury what you put into it. 
Your time here will go by quickly. Whatever your goals- laugh, live 
every day to the fullest and show you care about yourself, your friends 

and your school. 


Assistant Headmaster - Academics 
Malcolm Mousseau 

This academic year has seen curriculum innovations such as the 
coordinated integration of library and research skills into several 
grade nine courses and the "speakers in the classroom" programme 
organized with members of our Parents Committee. This educational 
experience is best described anecdotally, as reported by a parent of 
recent Ashbury grads. She wanted to let us know that the combination 
of Ashbury" s standards with co-curricular involvement allowed her 
children to develop the necessary academic and coping skills which 
are key to their current success in graduate level studies. Their 
experiences at Ashbury were at times exhilaratin, and times tiresome 
and frustrating. In the end, they remembered well a statement from 
one of their favourite teachers " I'm not here to get you into univer- 
sity, rather, my goal is to keep you in university." Congratulations 
on your year and have a great summer! 

Assistant Headmaster - School Life 
Ross Varley 

Making choices. Something that we do a thousand times a day. 
What to wear. Who to call. Where to go. When to go there. Why go 
there at all? Some choices are minor. Some choices can affect your 
life in a major way. You make your life what it is. And that is a 
precious choice. Sometimes you have no choice to make. Somebody 
else does it for you. Sometimes you just do what you have to do. It is 
the price of staying in the game. And that's OK too, as long as the 
game brings you joy and you are in it to win. Especially on your own 
terms. Ashbury has to make choices too. First of all; we all work very 
hard to make our education enjoyable. We need our sports, our 
academics, the music, art and drama programmes, the debating, the 
Inter-house activities and all the rest. Secondly, we need you to make 
good choices, to play the education game to enjoy it, and to win. To 
make your success the best that you possibly can. So choose well this 
year and beyond. And enjoy your success.

School Captain 

I have learnt a great deal from being Cap- 
tain and I thank everyone who has helped 
me along the way whether it was with a 
hug, a piece of advice, criticism or a high 

Special thanks to Mrs. Jowett, for your 
guidance and encouragement through my 
"Journey." To Mr. Sparks, for believing in 
me and my bball skills even if I can't drib- 
ble. To Corner X, Crad 2002 is upon us.Cet 
jiggy with it. To my bros, Tait and Brook, 
for the laughs. 1 love you both. To my par- 
ents, you are the greatest role models for 
me. I love you. Sonia and Jess, love you 
like a sister, not just a friend. 

"If fishes were wishes, we'd have oceans 
of dreams." 

lere are too many people to thank that have helped me over the years to become what I am today. The great thing about 
ving a second page is that you can expand on your short grad write-up. First, I'd like to start out by thanking all the past 
esidents, Julian de Hoog, Dave Kilgour, and Steve Watson, for showing me the way. Rich, without you and Monty, I 
ver would have won that grade 10 election; we're 3 & 0. I've had the opportunity to work with some unbelievable 
ople on the council, and I won't forget you either (ES, SK, JG, JM, BM, DK, SW, RM, Brett, GN, Rez, GL, Kelen, SB (C), AJ, 
<ore, SN, EC,). Special props go to my VP, RMac (we'll do that Oscars presentation someday!) and to MAP, who's always 
lieved in the council and what it stands for. Thanks go out to my buds, who've stuck with me through thick and thin, 
pecially: Rich, Phil (LeBoss), Boulos (Boobs), Andrew (Kirby/Diddy), AU(Sha_), Sylvia (Sly), Justin (J), and Stefano 
tauch). Mr Holman and Mr. Pelletier, you were both greater advisors than we could ask for! Mr. Mousseau, thanks for 
ving me that push in gr. 12. TAM, thank you for supporting me in any endeavour I've embarked on. I love you and 1 owe 
lu evervthing. To every student at Ashbury, especially those who said hello or nodded, winked or smiled in the hall- 
ays, thank you for making my years at Ashbury some of the best I've ever had. Next time you have a chance, sit in the 
yer, close your eyes, and think about how great a thing we have going at Ashbury. Just relax, enjoy it, and have a shake.

Connaught house has had a good year so far. While it is only the middle of 
January and house events are not complete, our house is out ahead of the 
pack. Dutiful prefects and a responsible house master have led to events 
being well attended and spirit being at an all time high. The house sup- 
ports a foster child that could likely buy a Porsche with the amount of 
money we have been providing. Good luck to C-Housers of next year and 
keep living the dream.

now that I see the end I realize how 
short it was. Friends, music and sports 
made time FLY by. The science club 
and robotics team really put some 
loud explosive fun in weekdays. BH, 
RJC. CM, MW you taught me to 
understand; that's more valuable than 
marks. LT, all your effort and care 
with music is what makes it appreci- 
ated, w/o you nobody would care. 
Dave, it was so much fun sharing 
music with you, you've been an awe- 
some friend just like you, Ryan. Wont 
ever forget you two! My five years in

Ashbury is my yellow wood- and I 
wonder if the journey is not more 
important than the arri val. Good 
times tho, with the ba d: thnks to all, 
esp. friends (u know who u are: keep 
in touch), family (gud luk Ben; thks 
Mom -i-Dad; kpt me alive), teachers 
(esp. mrV, msW, mrM, mrT) Foot-

"I never let schooling interfere with 
ray education." I agree with Twain, 
though I can't trivialize 6 years. Bad 
times give good ones relevance.and 
my time here has been a mixture of 
both. Here, I was both schooled and 
educated. I'd like to thank those in- 
volved in each: My teachers and those 
who made life easier. Jeev's sarcasm 
+ patriotism, Peter's stories + blond 
women, Jon's suave stylings, Aaron 
the gnome, Ian the music man, Andy ' s 
mad creativity/beans, Jen: sun'eal 
monkey, Jase -t-Katheryn's dance. 
Most of all, Jess, for being so much to 
me. The one whom I lovealways, and 
so much more. In the end, it all comes 
down to this. .."The roots of educa- 
tion are bitter, but the fruit is sweet."

Never in a million years did I expect 
to go to private school, but it hap- 
pened and I survived. ..somehow. 
Kindly put, it was an interesting year. 
The skirts were REALLY ugly for 
feild hockey, doritos put me off-kil- 
ter for hockey (good times) and the 
debate on playing soccer or rugby 
still goes on. Lots of smiles and a 
hand in my survival of peace and 
mind go to the Mac? girls, 
Ms.Gomme, Ms.Hardage, FM, SB, 
JT. LC, LA, JA. KK. KRB, ML. Will 
and my parents. Thank you to my 
teachers for trying to educate me and 
tomyself for learning it. A journey of 
a thousand miles begins with a single 
step and so we take it into a new 
world. See you around ; ) 

It's been 8 years too long, but here I 
am. graduating. Thanks to all who 
knew me and who made life at this 
school easier. Dan M. u were my boy, 
its been fun, lunctime meetings keep- 
ing it real, have a great last year. 
Noah, economics, the good times, 
Cancun, keeping the train on the 
tracks. Leah its been a good couple 
of years, u were there for me, and u 
put up with me. Mom the best of 
luck, living without me is going to be 
tough. To all the teachers who showed 
me respect and who tolerated me 
thanks, to the boarding staff who 
tried to make my life difficult, even 
though 1 had been living here longer 
then u, thnx for teaching me to rise 
above u. To all boarders in the future 
don't go down without a fight.

Where to begin? It somehow seenr 
inadequate to sum up 8 years at 
Ashbury in 715 characters since I 
have probably met more than 7 1 5 
characters as a lifer. Who could 
forget Mr. Humphreys and those 
gray flannel shorts; and Mr. 
Pelletier (MAP)"s love of drum 
solos? These last few years were by 
far the best. My most memorable 
experiences were the Coffee 
Houses I was involved in. my time 
on stage, the loud music, and the 
screaming fans. I would like to 
thank my friends who made my 
time here great, my parents for 
supporting me, MAP (keep it 
intense!), the bands: 5:15, Random 
Noise and Torque, as well as my 
girlfriend Christine who is a great 
inspiration. You're cool!

wing it. Ever since Mt. St Anne in gr.

Ashbury College. 2 words that will 
live in infamy for the rest of my years 
as a place of growth, matura tion. and 
self-improvement. Is that what they 
want me to say? So what have I actu- 
ally learnt? Well as a wise Chinese 
philosopher once said. 'I work 10 
months & send my family twotimbits.' 
Hot boyZ we had a (head) smashing 
good time, 'House Meetings' and 
6: 1 5am runs. I had a great times with 
Rozie, BW, JF Dom Juan Saucier, 
kdiddy, MP, ERLB, AM, SL, Les,sons 
learnt. Jenny Lee, it's tea time!

Hellooo! The past 4 years here have 
been interesting, to say the least. I 
leave with a mixture of excitement 
and sadness. To the "group" we be- 
came and were friends when we 
needed it the most. All the plays that 
changed me (esp. Blue Shutters). To 
AH and JG, it's bittersweet. Cookie 
(JaH). Weekends at the apartment 
(how many are we up to yet?) and 
hanging out with you boarders. To 
JV. all men are b...! To the teachers 
that taught me to see things differ- 
ently: MAP, GS, Dr. O. To everyone 
that ever listened and was 
there, thanks. To PV. don't forget to 
keep on "thinking". To my family, 
thanks for supporting me. From the 
tears to the laughter, I treasure it all. 
I will miss you all next year. Love.

From the Director of 
University Admissions - 
Mrs. Christine Tordon 

It has been another busy year in University Admissions with record 
numbers of applications to the US. Ontario and out of province Univer- 
sities. The Fall was particularly busy as we hosted the first Ivy League 
Night as well as a Maritime University lunch time fair. The lunch time 
program was well attended and visiting University representatives and 
keen Ashbury students kept Mrs. Mayer very busy running back to the 
Dining Hall for more food! Just as Mrs. Mayer and I are starting to get to 
know the names and faces of the graduating students, you're off to a wide 
range of plans for the future. It is wonderful to be a part of such diverse 
interests, goals and future expectations of the grads. 

We wish you all the best for your future - 
wherever it may take you.

The 2001-2002 Senior Football Team 
bolted out of the starting blocks with 
4 straight decisive victories. This im- 
proved the team's NCSSAA unde- 
feated streak to 22 games. When the 
dust settled, the Senior Boys finished 
the year with a 6-2 record and a solid 
showing at the city semi-finals. High- 
lights of the season included a top 20 
provincial ranking, four weeks ranked 
#1 in Ottawa, an exhibition game at St. 
Andrews College and the enjoyment 
of experiencing the blood, sweat, tears 
and brotherhood that comes with be- 
ing a member of an Ashbury Football 
team. The team would like to thank 
our captains for their undying leader- 
ship (Matt Runnlass, James Kenny, 
Stuart Robinson, Alex Young and Tim 
Booth). Also, the team would like to 
thank our coaches for their guidance, 
time and for sharing their passion for 
football with us. To the graduating 
players we wish you only the best in 
your bright futures. To next year's 
team we challenge you to carry on the 
winning tradition that is known as 

The Junior Boys Soccer team hai 
a reasonably successful seasor 
The commitment and spirit on th 
team was evident all season. Abl 
led by captain Friedrich Birgelei 
and our main goal scorers Caret) 
Pugh and Neil Mason, the tean 
advanced to the playoffs after . 
stirring string of victories near th' 
end of the season. With two sea 
soned goalies between the post 
and a host of returning players 
next year should prove to be ai 
exciting one for this team.

Jr. Girl's 

The Junior Girls basketball team had a great season this 
year. Despite the differences in experience and lack of vet 
eran players, the girls really came together in the end anc 
proved to be solid competition for every team that crossec 
their path. They finished with a 7-3 record, and lost in th«j 
East Conference semi-finals to St. Peter's, who then wen 
on to win the city championship. The girls were also vet) 
successful in all three tournaments that they entered, in 
chiding one that they hosted (Ashbury waterbottles for all! 
The team would like to thank Coach McKinnon (Tin 
Walters by association) and Miss Gomme (don't lose th( 
naughty pig!) for ail their hard work and dedication. Wt 
would also like to thank Danya for her constant supper 
and overwhelming enthusiasm (your manageorical skill: 
were unbelievable!) Good luck to next year's team, anc 
thanks for all the "team bonding" sessions.

Sr. Girls 

The Ashbury girls basketball program 
has long been recognized as one of the 
powerhouses in the Ottawa area, with 
6 city championships and 4 consecutive 
undefeated seasons, the only thing 
missing was OFSAA gold. With 5 re- 
turning players, Kate, Caity, Danielle, 
Audrey, and Sheila and a talented 
group of newcomers, Lauren, Jess, 
Hilary, Allie, Katya, Denise, and Bess, 
the team set off on a tournament sched- 
uled that included games from Mon- 
treal to Niagara Falls and many points 
in between. 

As the host school for "AAA" OFSAA 
our association was given 2 representa- 
tives and a tough loss to St. Matt's in 
the NCSSAA final placed us as the 4* 
seed at OFSAA. The result was a tough 
draw with 3 preliminary games. We 
met up with the second seeded St. 
Matt's, who we split with 2-2 over the 
year. Poulin coming off a national MVP 
summer season for team Ontario, set 
the tone with tenacious defense and 
pinpoint passing to 3 point shooters. 
Sparks, Bechtel, and Smart. With Poulin 
in foul trouble, the team relied on its 
depth to pull away for a 58-49 victory! ! ! ! 

Our goal of winning OFSAA GOLD 
was accomplished and many people 
needed to be thanked for the team's

Track and Field 

The Ashbury Track and Field Team was 57 members strong 
this season and competed extremely well all season. We traveled 
to the Queen's Alumni Meet early in the season, competed in 
the Lisgar Invitational Relays and came second in the East Con- 
ference Charnpionships. 40 members of the Team advanced to 
the National Capital Championships and then 22 athletes quali- 
fied and competed at OFSAA Regionals. 5 athletes qualified for 
OFSAA and traveled to Belleville: Cristina Venables, Andrew 
King, Omar Alsaffar, Anthony Rocheleau and David Postle. 
Thanks for another fantastic season and a special thanks to our 
captains: Steph and Tarah. Best wishes to all those graduating 
"Tracksters": Nii Addo, Arthur Chan, Bavidra Mohan, Paul 
Shinkman, Omeonga Saidi, Dana Shift, Cristina Venables and 
J.J. Wilson. - Your Coaches 

The X-Country team has had another amazing season. The 
year started with a great turnout and lots or enthusiasm 
This continued all through the season right up to and in- 
cluding OFSAA - where our Junior Boys and Senior Girls 
teams competed. Of course, this was only one of the man) 
highlights. We will always remember our hardcore train- 
ing in the mud and rain, our Tim Horton's reward trips 
and Mrs. Kennedy's birthday (?). A huge thanks to all oui 
coaches - Mrs. Holman, Mrs. Kennedy, and Ms. Kelly. Besi 
of luck to all the graduating runners -Dana, Malte, Bemo 
Andrew, and Amitha.

Jr. Boys Volleyball 

Standing at an average height of 5'3" the Junior Boys Volley- 
ball Team ventured into the season with high hopes and high 
socks. Led by captains Brook Simpson and Simon Clarke- 
Okah, the team threw fashion sense to the side in pursuit of 
the team first playoff birth in three years. Excellent setting 
from Andrew Mutter and Anthony Tran was complimented 
by great hitting from the captains, Geoff Matthews and 
Graham Booth. Superstar shortguys Oli and Petey were ex- 
cellent liberos, while Andy Syrett, Ben Resnick, James Patrick 
and Chris Kelen were great support. The team did indeed 
make the playoffs, where eventual champions Gloucester HS 
defeated us. Thanks to Ms. Sosnowska for her enthusiastic 
coaching and to Alex Young for spending a lot of time with 
the team. Finally, thanks to Ben Mann for his wisdom and 
moments of brilliance. Good luck next year. 

One, Two, Three, Four, what do you think this stick is for? The Varsity Girls Field Hockey 
team finished its second season this fall. A talented team of 21 players, including over 10 
rookies, we managed to improve our standings in this growing sport. Outstanding goal 
tending from Missy kept us fighting in the games and the OAC's kept us laughing. Al- 
though the season was only three weeks long, we still managed to build a competitive team 
and a strong core of midfielders for next year. We would like to thank our excellent coaches 
Ms. Duggan and Katherine who are experienced, patient and great with whistles. Thanks to 
all our graduating players, especially Leah, Krissy, Missy and Jess who have helped build 
the team over these two years. Good Luck to all of the returning players for a successful 
season next year.

Ashbury SkiTeam 

The largest ever Ski team experienced yet 
another enjoyable and eventful season. Our 
first competition was the Convenor's Cup, a 
GS set on the hills of Camp Fortune. Ashbury 
fared well in this event, and the team gained 
the necessary confidence. The next races were 
the NCSSAA Ski Championships, and again, 
the Ashbury teams competed admirably. After 
a stunning victory in Slalom the Girls Level 2 
team was robbed of a gold in the series. 
However Bridget McCallum, as well as the 
entire Level 2 boys team, won gold medals. 
Being top in the NCSAA they advanced to 
OFSAA in Collingwood. Thanks to Mrs. 
Matthews and everyone involved. Good luck 
to those racing next season. 

shbury Tennis Team 

le tennis team had another successful season this year. The A team repeated as City 
lampions, and continued a streak of 8 of the last 9 years. This year individual Championships 
;re won by James Low in Boys Singles, Troy Puddington and Bavidra Mohan in Boys 
)ubles and Klara Broadway and Natasha DeYoung in Girls Doubles. Lauren Rock was the 
onze medalist in Girls Singles.

congratulate all team members for 
their hard work throughout the 
season. A special congratulations 
and thanks go out to Klara Broad- 
way and Bavidra Mohan as 
graduating members of the tennis 
team. Their contributions over the 
years to the program have been 
Best of luck to both. 

Girls Hockey 

Well, the first ever Ashbury 
girls hockey team had a very 
exciting season. We had a 
somewhat slow start but 
gradually, our skills improved 
and we even won two whole 
games! To sum up our short 
season: few practices, floor 
hockey, breaking zambonis, 
the Sens game (oohs and aahs 
annoying the spectators), heck- 
ling people on the street, dirty 
men following us, the 80s 
ghetto blaster, the Pina Colada 
song, tripping refs, looking for 
the mysterious aquarium, call- 
ing female bus drivers "sir", 
the infamous fall on the face, 
smelling like Doritos, and be- 
ing generally "off kilter". Good 
luck to our graduating players 
Chrissy, Missy, Marg, Kate P. 
Julia and Laura. Oh, and by the 
way, Happy Birthday Miss

Oggletorpe? Well this was quite the interesting year. With a 
grand total of five returning players, we were poised for a 
stellar season. We got off on the right foot with a default win 
over St. Pats, unfortunately it was all downhill from there. 
Luckily we got to play Osgoode twice, and were able to pad 
the win column. Solid offensive contribution and distractions 
from the target line and the two tallest boys in hockey, left 
line one defense to shine. Home and Away game captains 
lead the team, and coupled with superb coaching and amaz- 
ing managing 18 young boys were molded into fine young 
men. Memorable moments: Hamster/ Gerbil/ muffin, Cletus, 
Pogo, Hi-Tower and concussion case. Rocheleau sleeping with 
bums, and then in the tub, Stifler's hair game. Slash Kelly, 
$13 bagel and juice, BJ vs. Pocahontas and "Sell it on Ebay." 
All in all we had a lot of fun, and good luck to next years

This year the junior boys charged into 
the regular season with a new team 
and a new attitude. Mr. Gray returned 
and set about revamping the offence 
and defence. Along with Mr. Holman, 
Mr. Gray inspired the team to accept 
nothing less than a defence that suffo- 
cated the opposition and developed an 
offense that was dangerous from the 
perimeter. The guard positions were 
anchored by veterans Jon Shiff and 
Tom Christie, whose leadership was 
valuable. Grade nine Andrew King 
showed explosive potential while 
rounding out the lethal shooting trio. 
Nael Alsaffar provided relief at the 
guard position off the bench. Steve 
Street and Jason Cherney provided 
solid rebounding and inside scoring, 
with help off the bench from rookie 
Alex Drury. The Colts traveled to To- 
ronto to play Country Day School, 
Upper Canada College and St. 
Andrew's College in a series of exhi- 
bition games. The Colts went 3-0 over 
the weekend. The regular season was 
a rollercoaster, with the team going 
7-5. In their division, the Colts went 
from last place last year to third place 
this year. The team fell to the eventual 
city champions in the first round of 
playoffs. With many returning players, 
the team promises to spearhead an- 
other strong campaign next year. 

Senior Boys 

The 2001-2002 Senior Boys basketball season proved to be 
another building year, and the dawn of a new uniform. Al- 
though the team was plagued by a lack of experience and 
lack of age throughout the season, we had our times to be 
proud. And despite a slow improvement over the course of 
the year, the playoffs remain a goal for next year's boys. To 
coach Sparks' a special thanks for hanging in there and mak- 
ing us believe in ourselves through the up(s) and the downs. 
Thanks also to Mr. McKinnon for helping out in practice, to 
the fans for all their loudness & support, and above all, to the 
graduating players for their dedication and hard work: Tim 
Booth, Jimmy Cheng, Rich Zussman, Stu Robinson, and Chris 
Doyle-Kelly. To next year's rookies and to the returning play- 
ers: play hard, have fun, and good luck.

Jr. Girls Soccer 

The junior girls soccer team had a great season this year. Com- 
ing out strong in league play and finishing fourth in our divi- 
sion. Despite a quick exit from the playoffs, the girls showed 
a lot of grit and hard work through the season. For all the 
great times and practices in the rain/wind we would like to 
thank the coaches for their time and dedication. Best of luck 
to all of next year's players and thanks to the players moving 
on to senior team.

Tournament at Ridley College. We finished our schedt 
with 4 straight wins. Unfortunately we ended our seasi 
with a loss to Colonel By in the Conference Semi-Fina 
We had the opportunity to play a touring side from Wah 
Although we lost, we learned a lot. The year was mark( 
by many memorable incidents: DJ Cheeko spinning tl

like to thank our coaches, Mr. Beltran, Mr. Middleton ai 
Christian Josiah for all their dedication.

Sr. Boys Rugby 

le beginning of the season was filled with great promise 
. the team performed admirably at the CATS Rugby Tour- 
iment, hosted by Ridley, took its toll on the team. After 
sing several key players the team struggled to make its 
ay through the regular season, finishing with a gutsy 
^rformance by a mere 15 players against a bigger, physi- 
illy and numerically, Hillcrest team. Despite the record, 
le season was a success. The team discovered Mr. 
fiddleton isn't as fast as he claims (thanks Anthony) and 
e T. V. role he had before teaching at Ashbury. Thanks go 
the graduating players and to the Assistant Coach Josiah.

GirFs Rugby 

Dreams can come true! The Ashbury College Girls 
Rugby team, city champions, finished yet another glori- 
ous season with a much deserved OFSAA championship 
banner. This team is like no other. The dedication, hard 
work and heart of the players and coaches makes this 
team truly unique. So much thanks go out to our coaches, 
Boyd and X, who spend countless hours and devote so 
much time to making this team a truly great one. Thank- 
you to all the graduating players and the rest of the team. 
Girls, it has been a priviledge. 

Jess Greenberg 

The Ashbury College baseball season did not start off as well as we hoped. 
We played two disappointing games at Trinity before we had time to even set 
our roster. 

Our optimistic objective for the 2002 NCSSAA baseball season was simply to 
make the playoffs. In spite of the difficulty we had with rained out games that 
resulted in a very hectic schedule, we accomplished our objective in fine style, 
winning four games while losing only two and tying one. 
This placed us third in the East and set us up for a quarter final game against 
Mother Theresa. We started the game well, leading 5-1 after two innings. 
Unfortunately for us, our competition's bats came alive and we lost 8-5. 
Overall, it was an excellent re-building season for us. We have many exciting 
young players, making our future look bright. Special thanks go out to our 
graduating players Cam McWade and Alex Boulos. 


The Equestrian team coached by Ms. Wall had a very suc- 
cessful but brief season this year. In our first event, a "Catch 
and Ride", our horses were great companions and allowed 
the talent of their riders to shine through. We were re- 
warded with many ribbons and trophies. The riders are 
looking forward to pursuing more events next year. Thanks 
to Ms. Wall for being coach, groom and chaperone!

tered into tournament after only one week of practice. The 
doubles team of Vincent Mok and Olivia McNee qualified for 
the east championship while Jessica Harden placed third in 
girls singles. The senior team of Lauren Rock and James 
McMillan placed second while the boys' doubles team of Troy 
Puddington and Bavidra Mohan placed third.

The Ashbury Model UN Delegation 
attended the Trent University Model 
United Nations in mid-October. The 
Delegation consisted of the following 
senior students: Daniel Holberton, 
Michelle Owusu, Fauzia Issaka, 
Margaret Natynczyk, Leah Shearman, 
and Joshua Sherman. All seven of these 
students were terrific at simulating in- 
terest in another country's foreign 
policy and in negotiating with full pas- 
sion for that country. We wish these stu- 
dents luck, and hope that their future 
endeavors will contain more interna- 
tional contacts. 


The World Affairs Group had another 
busy and successful year. We organized 
a series of speakers to discuss the theme 
of "the world before and after Septem- 
ber 11" following the tragic events. We 
also spearheaded the Red, White and 
Blue ribbon campaign within the 
school, raising $642 for the families of 
relief workers. Anu Chadha's cake auc- 
tion raised $900 for orphans in Afghani- 
stan. In February, a group of 10 del- 
egates traveled to Toronto to the An- 
nual World Affairs Conference. This 
year's theme was "Redefining Gender 
in the 2P* Century". International Day 
included guest speaker Lloyd 
Axworthy, a debate, and discussion 
groups based on the theme of "Globali- 
zation and a Changing World". Special 
thanks to all that helped out this year. 

Debating and Public Speaking 

Competitive debating events have 
crowded the calendar this year and 
over 25 Ashbury debaters have done 
well in twenty competitions and 
traveled around Canada as far away as 
Victoria B.C. The tournaments are re- 
gional, provincial, national and inter- 
national in scope. Most exciting was 
Sinan Baltacioglu's trip to Durban, 
South Africa as part of the Canadian 
delegation to the 2002 World Individual 
Debating and Public Speaking Cham- 
pionship in April. Meanwhile, the Jun- 
ior debaters in Grade Seven and Eight 
made their mark provincially at the 
Junior Provincials in Toronto. 

This year Mr. John Richardson ex- 
panded the regular program with pub- 
lic speaking and improv events which 
involved participation in the prestig- 
ious Saucer Tournament, the Nora 
McCrae Memorial Public Speaking 
Competition, and the Evening with 
Shakespeare competition in Toronto.

The Winter Fulford At Ashbury: "B.I.R.T. History is Bunk" On Saturday Feb- 
ruary 16'*', 2002, Ashbury hosted the winter session of the Fulford League de- 
bates. Eighty of Ontario's finest debaters from twenty different Ontario Inde- 
pendent schools met at Ashbury to debate the resolution. "Be it resolved that 
History is Bunk." The over 250 enthusiastic debating volunteers who helped 
with the many aspects of running a tournament helped to make our Fulford the 
great success it was. Many thanks must be given to the debating coaches and the 
student organizing committee who combined spent hours prior to the tourna- 
ment insuring that the Fulford would run on time and without incident. The 
Fulford League will never be the same! 


Operation Smile kicked off its second year with numerous 
fund-raisers and great committment from its' members. 
Ashbury College still holds the only Canadian chapter of this 
organization. We successfully raised money for children with 
facial deformities, such as cleft palette and facial tumors. The 
funds were sent to fund these operations in third world coun- 
tries. We were able to effectively raise awareness and funds 
within the Ashbury Community. I would like to thank the 
Ashbury Community for being so receptive to our cause. Most 
importantly, I would like to thank all members and wish those 
graduating the very best in their future endeavors. Next year 
Andrew Robertson will head Operation Smile up, and I am 
sure he will do great things for Operation Smile. Thank you 
for your continued support and most importantly thank you 
to Ms. Wall who is our dedicated teacher advisor.

):ue igniter could launch a potato. Our year-end activity

Environmental Club 

-■■mall group of students has come together this year to 
( m a new Environmental Club. The purpose of this ga th- 
ing is to heighten the awareness of environmental con- 
ns for both its members and for others and to take the 
itiati\'e to address concerns within our own local envi- 
ttment. During the Fall term we determined what our 
;als for the year would be and participated in the 
Jckcliffe Park Clean Up Day in November. During the 
'nter term the members did a needs assessment for ex- 
;nding the recycling within the Senior School and then 
Jjt together a proposal for meeting these needs. It is our 
I pe that by the end of this school year we will have had 
ir proposal approved and have launched our new facili- 
is for improvement in this area.

Outdoor Education 

While others slept. 

The rugged hemlock standing near our 
wooden lean-to exhaled a secret to 
anybody nearby - in a language, though, 
only understood by stones. The broken 
rocks at the fire ring passed along the 
message, translating, and a tiny mouse 
hollered its response, tipping leaves into 
tumultous movement. 

The hemlock whispered again, and this 
time, dried needles underfoot and a 
twig blurted back knowingly. Close to 
the water, the faintly luminescent 
canoes lay in the sand. Taking tiny 
steps amongst the chattering roots I 
headed toward the lakeshore. A bough 
of the hemlock reached out speaking in 
a fragrant, delighted voice. 1 knew each 
word, as if from long ago.

Diverse Rhythm 

Since each of us had our own personaUzed technique, we 
collaborated to create two very diverse dances in the Win- 
ter Term. Swing Hop's quirky choreography, theatrical cos- 
tumes, and complex music all complimented Bistro's showy 
waitresses and Latin backbeats. The Spring Term spilled 
into a range of organic movement in the first ever Ashbury 
Dance performance: "Uplifted." The eclectic evening, a 
combination of Hip Hop, Modern, Jazz, Ballet, Tae Kwon 
Do, Gymnastics, Theatre, Music, and Yoga, was a chance 
to reveal our diverse individual talents. It resulted in an 
entertaining performance and a rewarding experience. 

"We feel the music consume us, and we cannot ignore its 
influence. Without resisting the sensation of the sound 
currents, we release ourselves into a fresh state of mind."

Theatre as Education 

Theatre as Education teaches the essential skills of the thea- 
tre, but also deals with important, sometimes uncomfortable 
social issues. 

Through an extensive training process the cast and crew are 
taught to analyse the themes of a play and the motivation for 
the characters' behaviours. Experts from the community are 
recruited to ensure an excellent grasp of the complexity of 
the material and the psychological, sociological, and histori- 
cal context of each production. 

Education shines a bright light in dark places. Meaningful 
dialogue results in knowledge and changed perceptions. Stu- 
dents are expected to demonstrate their knowledge on and

Spring Awakening 

Spring Aivakening tells the story of a group of adolescents in a small town. The 
play, which was written more than one hundred years ago, is possibly the best 
play written about teenage experience. Like all the great theatre, this play raises 
serious issues but at the same time is funny, moving and life-affirming. 

Spring Awakening is about the abuse of authority and the repression of sexuality. 
It is a play about the search for self and freedom. Most importantly, it is about the 
need for us to create a world in which our youth must choose to stay alive. The 
issue raised, in particular the relationships between children, their parents and 
other authority figures, repressed sexuality and teenage suicide, are exception- 
ally relevant to today's society. 

Spring Aivakening is an epic play which will provide an excellent opportunity for 
discussion and debate.

The annual grade 7 trip to Camp Cameron is always 
one of the highlights of the year. We all get to know 
each other, and we can share activities and experi- 
ences. This year was one of the best ever. The weather 
was, for the most part, good, and there were no fatal 
injuries! On these two pages are a selection of those 
memories. Page 160, from top: Youichi ( of yoyo fame)

Doing our bit 

The Junior School has always been committed to helping our community, and this year was no exception. With our ann' 
'Fun Run' and our 'Wear a Costume for a Toonie Day' we raised $5922.80 for the United Way. Grade six students c| 
vassed on behalf of the Cancer Society and collected $2455.00. Boys from grades 4 to 8 read avidly for the MS Readatli 
and all classes participated in the Shepherds of Good Hope Christmas Hamper Program. Nine needy families benefit! 
from the generosity of the Junior School. j

The year is full for the grade 7 
group. On these two pages we 
see some of the day to day ac- 
tivities that occupy their time. 
Sometimes it's hard to catch 
them still for long enough to 
get a camera at the ready. The

This year music had many noteworthy 
highlights. The House Music Competi- 
tions were entertaining and showcased 
some of our talented musicians. The 
Wizards came out on top in grades 4-6, 
and the Hobbits in 7 and 8. The grade 
4's performed Beethoven with the NAC 
Orchestra and the School Bands enter- 
tained at the Winter and Spring Con- 
certs. Many thanks to Mr. Armstrong for 
all his hard work. Photos on this page

Ashbury'^s Live Poet Society: Reciting 

The Poetry Reading Competition remains a highlight in our year. Once again, we were entertained by twelve magnificent readers. They were 
(clockwise from upper left) Alex H., second, reading his original poem shown on p. 171; Terry D., first, and Chris P., third. The other readers were 
Corey A.; Brendan A.; Patrick W.; Sandy M.; Sebastian L.; Brian C; Joshua D.; Matthew C. and Josh F. Well done one and all. 

and Writing 

My Eyes Are Far From Perfect 

My eyes are far from perfect 
I'm myopic they say, 
I have tremendous problems 
Reading messages on display. 

The eights all look like S's; 
The P's seem more like O's; 
i guess I'm out of focus 
It's hard to see my toes. 

I started wearing glasses 
At the tender age of four; 
While being a major nuisance, 
I could see, not like before. 

But who likes wearing glasses 
'Specially when you're playing 

They get so scratched and bent up. 
The frames land on the ground. 

So much to my relief one day 
My doctor said I could 
Try out these new soft contacts 
Toss my glasses out for good. 

So now I wear these lenses 
That adhere to both my eyes: 
I can even change their colour 
And create a great disguise. 

And even more exciting 

Is the fact that when I'm older 

I'll get lasered like my dad 

And give my lenses the cold shoulder.

What Will You Find . . . 

What will vou find in a dragon's lair? 

Aboard of^ gold? 

Digusting mould? 

Or a dragon's dangerous snare? 

Equipment for slaughter? 

Or a pool of water? 

by Peter Tross 


She is an empty being 

She is just a box without toys 

Her heart is part of the cold north 

And not the warm cities of the south 

She has never heard the true sound of her 


She doesn't feel right 

She feels like a left over 

She has no happiness, just like the wind 

The only way for her to be herself 

Is to find a way toward friendship 

A family to understand her 

Not just to live with 

To dance, to play, to talk and to smile 

That's all she needs to be happy 

Not everything in the world 

Just her family 

She finds her family living like she did 

She would rather have her freedom 
Not living in one place 
That is all, nothing else 
Just her happiness.

The Treasure 

The treasure 

So long awaited 

Tears welling in your eyes; 

Your heart filled with joy. 

Hours, gazing 

So smooth. 

So precious. 

Safe with you, you must keep it. 

With your life you must guard it. 

Slowly, you lift your shadowed face. 

Flickering in the candlelight. 

Safe within the folds and depths of 


Caress it. 

An irreplaceable gift, unique. 
From which you shall never part. 
In the eerie silence. 
Broken by the howling of the wind, 
A sound.

Speaking of . . . bull fighting, ghosts, Jim Carrey, West Point, zero, medieval times, sewage into snow and D-Day - those were just some of the topics that entertained us and broadened our horizons 
the House Speaking Competitions. Thanks to our judges, Mrs. N. Jowett, head of senior English, Mrs. M. Sinclair, head of sertior History and M. Brown and S. Peleato, senior school students, for 
difficult job well done. Winners and judges are pictured on the opposite page. 

The beginning of Brendan Alexander's 
winning speech, D-Day: 

I was pitched violently forward in my seat as 
our landing craft lurched to a halt. Dazed, I 
stumbled into the water, scarcely remember- 
ing to keep my gun above my head. A shell 
sliced through the air and burst into flame, 
just metres from where I was standing. I 
slowly began to march toward the beach as 
bullets cut men down, in a never ending 
torrent of fire. Suddenly, I heard an ear 
piercing scream, and a man fell face forward 
into the water, a gaping hole through his 

My name is Thomas Bawden, and I am a 
member of the 9th Canadian Brigade. When 
Canada declared war on Germany, I eagerly 
volunteered for the army, knowing it would 
be over in a few quick months. But when the 
Allies were not able to push Germany back, I 
knew it was far from over. The German 
blitzkrieg had crushed the French army and 
those of most of Europe, in less than six 
weeks of fighting. The Nazi power was 
growing, and I worried that I would never 
see home again . . . iXi. 


Clockwise: Aaron, Ali, Navid, and 
Youichi and their robotic arm for the

iel, Andrei, Mark, and Carson with their

Wizards Hat 


Hat is a 
Very magi 
Cal piece of 
Clothing. It has 
A point at the top 
And a large black brim. 
Some hats can talk and give 
You advice; tell you important 
Spells that your teacher can't hear. They have hidden 
Powers that should be handled carefully and with respect.

Medals, gold, silver Bronze, 1^^ place, Z""* 

And 3'"'^. Any place is Good in the Olympics 

Because everyone is Good. Every athlete 

Is aiming for the gold but I'm sure they 

Would be happy with any medal because any 

medal signifies that you are a world class 
athlete that has succeeded in your sport. 
If you receive a medal it is a great 
Honor and you should be 

happy. Medals are 
Very nice to look at as 
Well because they are nice 
Colors and are pretty to have on 
Display. If I ever won a medal I 
Would show all of my friends and 
Hope that they would be proud 
of me. Winning an Olympic 
gold medal would be 
a dream come true. 


Encircled in strength. 
Surging with secret power.

I was trying out my skis 
But lost control and hit a bump 
Then next I'm lying in the snow 
A cold and frozen lump 

My skis have fallen off 

But then I see them on the hill 

They're carving all the turns 

And jumping jumps with perfect 


They've got Olympic speed 
But in control they seem to be 
Progressing down the mountain 
Oh so far away from me

The U13 and U14 soccer teams traveled to competitions in Lennoxville and Hamilton. At the Bishop's Tournament in September, both teams enjoyed success despite the 
disaprjeamce of their uniforms. The U13 team were the consolation champions and the U14 team continued their reign as tournament champions. In October, the U13 team 
traveled to the CAIS U13 National Tournament in Hamilton. There, the team enjoyed the on field competition, emerging as consolation champions, and off the field activities 
prox ided by their generous hosts. Many thanks to coaches Street, King and Valentine. . 

Soccer ... In Hous 

This year's soc- 
cer tournament 
was cheered on 
by the grand- 
parents. After 
tightly contested 
battles, the 7-8 
Wizards and the 
4-5-6 Hobbits 
emerged victo- 
rious. Thanks to 
Mr. MacKinnon 
for a well-or- 
ganized event. 

All students in 
grades 4 to 6 
participated en- 
thusiastically in 
the soccer pro- 
gram. Success-

In the Junior School, we are aboi 
more than soccer, hockey, basketba 
and rugby. At different times of thj 
year our students get to involv 
themselves in a wide variety c 
sporting endeavours. These may b 
either athletic or intellectual. On th: 
page we see some of the student 
who participated in cross countr 
running (left). The Ultimate tear 
(below) continued to gain in exper 
ence, this year having more succes; 
Ms Boyd introduced Gaelic footba 
in the fall term and it was an instar 
hit. Other pages in this Yearboo 
show many of the other sports. 

Chess (if SI can call it a sport, so can 
we) is an ever popular sport. Syn- 
chronized back hatcheting made its 
appearance this year. We always 
strive to give our students as many 
"lifetime sports" as possible! Willy 
seems a natural at this; Ben demon- 
strates perfect form as the receiver 
and Tommy acts as the linker. This 
is a much more difficult sport than 
it would at first appear. Rock climb- 
ing, lacrosse, cricket, curling, x-c 
skiing, and golf are just some of the 
other sports available. 

Badminton, V-ball, & Squash 

Squash, thanks to Mr. Menzies, contin- 
ues to grow in popularity and success. 
The fire at the Rideau Club caused 
problems this season, but the RA Cen- 
tre proved a fine alternative. The team 
(left) represented the school well in 
Toronto against UCC. Team members 
were: I. Tattersfield, R. Wright, J. 
Russell-Brunet, N. Bray, M. Sutton, and 
M. Ouseley. All together, nearly 30 
grade 7 and 8 students participated in 
the programme.

ccessful again this

Volleyball was again a popular spring activity. This year the 
7-8 squad finished with a 10-8 record in the Ottawa Catholic 
league, missing the playoffs by one game. Mr. MacKinnon has 
certainly raised the level of skill in the Junior School for this 
excellent sport. At left we see: Mr. MacKinnon, M. Estabrooks,

The Junior School has 
been running Winter Ol- 
ympics annually for 
many years. The Houses 
have a chance to com- 
plete in a variety of win- 
ter sports. The tug of war 
is always a highlight, but 
other sports include ping 
pong, hockey, broom- 
ball, basketball, squash, 
and badminton. The 7-8 
winners were the Wiz- 
ards, while the Hobbits 
were the 4-6 champs. On

Le 8 fevrier dernier, des eleves de I'ecole junior sont alles voir une piece de theatre, Le Pingoiiii 
au CNA. Voici le commentaire d'lin jeune spectateur tel qu'envoye a la directrice de la troupe. 

Le 20 fevrier, 2002 


J'ai aime votre piece parce que c'etait amusant pas juste pour moi mais aussi pour les autres 
eleves et les enseignants. Mon personnage prefere est Sebastien parce qu'il a fait la seule chose 
que je veux faire des fois, il a suivi sa mere. 

Ma scene preferee est quand M. Pingouin et Sebastien ont lance des petits pains parce que des 
fois je veux lancer des morceaux de pain a mon pere. J'ai aime le decor parce que la nourriture 
avait I'air tres vrai. J'ai aussi aime le cochon parce qu'il avait le role le plus drole. 

Un spectateur,

Souvenirs d'enfance 

Mon souvenir 

Quand j 'avals presque dix ans, mon pere m'a achete des pantoufles de Bugs Bunny. Cela a 
commence quand moi et mon pere sommes alles au centre commercial au Texas en 1998. Nous 
sommes alles chez Sears et j'ai vu le reve de ma vie, les pantoufles de Bugs Burmy. 
Immediatement j'ai dit a mon pere: « Je veux ces pantoufles de Bugs Bunny.» Et mon pere a 
repondu: «Peut-etre une prochaine fois.» J'ai dit:« D'accord» avec un regard triste. 

Le lendemain, j'etais chez moi et mon pere est arrive. II a dit:« J'ai une suiprise pour toi Neeb>. 
A cet instant, je rayonnais de joie. Je suis alle voir ce que ma surprise etait: les pantoufles de Bugs 
Bunny! Je suis alle rapidement les mettre. Alors, je suis alle voir mon pere et je I'ai embrasse. 

J'ai toujours mes pantoufles et je les porte tout le temps. Pour moi, ces pantoufles sont un tresor 
que je n'oublierai jamais.

Le Champion de Turnberry 

C'etait le premier aout, 1999. J'etais alle avec ma famille en Floride pour les vacances 
d'ete. La premiere semaine, on a embarque sur un tres grand bateau qui s'appelait Imagination. 
On a voyage de Miami au Mexique. C'etait une expererience fantastique! 

La deuxieme semaine, on est alles a Aventura, une petite ville au nord de Miami. C'etait 
une ville extraordinaire avec des voitures exotiques et une marina pleine de yachts. On etait la 
parce que j'etais inscrit au camp de tennis «Nunez» au club Turnberry. On restait a un hotel pres 
du club. 

La premiere joumee, mon pere m'a amene au camp. J'etais de bonne heure, alors je suis 
reste assis a cote des courts. Je regardais un monsieur qui pratiquait avec des millions de balles. 
J'ai commence a lui parler. 

- Est-ce que vous travaillez au camp? Lui ai-je demande. 

- Oui, je suis ici pour cette semaine seulement, m'a-t-il repondu brusquement. 

- Je suis un etudiant du camp. Je viens d'Ottawa au Canada. J'ai commence a jouer au tennis 
quand j'avais sept ans. J'ai dix ans maintenant. 

II ne m'a rien repondu alors j'ai essaye avec une autre question. 

- Est-ce que tu joues beaucoup au tennis? 

- Des fois, m'a-t-il repondu avec un petit sourire. 

- Avez-vous vu des champions juniors qui jouent ici? J'ai entendu dire qu'ils sont 
extraordinaires, ai-je dit. - 

- Oui, ils pensent qu'ils sont extraordinaires, a-t-il repondu avec sarcasme. 

Je me suis dit qu'il n'etait pas tres gentil. II est parti soudainement en laissant toutes ses balles 
sur le court. Je pensais encore qu'il n'etait pas tres gentil. 

J'ai dit a la demoiselle au bureau que le monsieur etait parti et que les balles etaient 
encore sur le court. EUe m'a explique pourquoi c'etait acceptable pour ce monsieur. C'etait le 
champion du monde, Jimmy Connors qui pratiquait sur les courts de Turnberry. 
J'etais si gene!

Mon souvenir 

L'histoire de mon ourson Horatio, c'est un peu drole! 

J'avais 1 1 mois et je commenfais juste a marcher quand ma mere et mon pere m'ont emmene a 
un magasin pour acheter un lit. Sur un de ces lits, se reposait un ourson. J'ai vu cet ourson, Horatio. 
J'ai march6 vers lui et je I'ai attrape. J'ai refuse de le laisser. Mes parents ont du I'acheter avec le 

Depuis, cet ourson est alle avec moi et ma famille a presque tous les coins du monde. II est alle 
en Angleterre, en France, en Malaisie, en Australie et a au moins six autres pays. 
Voili l'histoire d'Horatio.

Bright red and blue lights blaze 

from the corner of my eye. 

A tattered seat belt hangs beside me - 

Jagged metal spikes are all around me 

Shattered empty bottles on the floor 

of a once perfect Ford truck. 

The long grass pokes in 

from the missing window. 

The dark mud slowly oozing in - 

sucking and gurgling 

inch by inch disappearing 

deeper and deeper into 

the thick opaque wall beneath. 

Daniel Lenouvel 8J

A thousand bodies lie 

wasted in the mud. 

The brown sludge seeps onto 

the men's clothes. 

The barbed wire is still. 

A letter blows in the wind.

Wretched Gollum with no hair 
Catching Goblins in his snare 
Feasting on their tiny bones 
Cackling as he hears their moans 

Gruesome Gollum in his den 
Casts his line for careless men 
Wants to munch on someone new 
Looking for a human stew 

Gollum has a "precious" ring 
Puts his love into the thing 

With his ring he'll disappear 
Making all around him fear 

Gollum hates that little Hobbit 
Ring went missing, thought he'd robbed it 
So he traveled cross a moat 
Sailing on his tiny boat 

When he found the irksome mite 
Oh how Gollum longed to bite 
When he saw that Bilbo's knife 

Gollum thought he'd lose his life 

Both wanted the ring, that's true 
How'd they decide what to do? 
Bilbo construed quite a riddle 
Thought with Gollum 's mind he'd fiddle 

Bilbo the Hobbit won, of course 
Using brain instead of force 
Gollum learned something that day 
Cruelty and crime do not pay!
