7. Yearbook S
I am always pleased to write a short introduction to the Georgian. Each year a dedicated group of stu-
dents accepts the task of gathering together articles and photos of interest to their peers, parents and Old
Boys. This is not an easy task. Articles and offers of assistance are often forgotten about. Each year, how-
ever, a publication which mirrors the life of the school is produced. I thank the members of the Yearbook
Staff who have spent many hours assembling this year's issue.
At the annual Canadian Headmaster's Association meeting the topic of standards was much in evidence.
The importance of holding the line in support of social standards, sport's standards, and academic stand-
ards was stressed. After dealing with boys and young men for almost forty years 1 can say that they appre-
ciate standards that are fairly and clearly defined and applied. The school that relaxes its standards is in a
way being unfair to its students. Boys need direction. As they mature they will learn to respect controls
and sympathetic guidance. Society is in great need of leaders who are aware of the value of self-discipline,
self-respect and courage. As you learn to accept standards in your youth, and to mould a firm character
through attention to those things that really count, so too will you earn the right to be a truly great leader.
1 urge all students of St. George's to guard well that which has been committed to you.
Your friend and Headmastei
JUNIOR SCHOOL PRINCIPAL'S
I w.is introduced to a quotation attributed to 1 >i . Samuel [ohnson, when I was I 5 years old. upon re-
ceiving an essay from my teacher oi English. On it was written in a< companiment with rather a pitiful grade
"What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure", and he might well have added "and
without reward! ". I am reminded of this only because of the great effort I find necessary in order to pro-
duce annually this short message. I should say that il I was to be treated as are my students who fail to meet
deadlines 1 would find myself annually on early report.
Activities in the Lower School have continued apace as these pages will attest, many of last years suc-
cesses have been repeated. For example; the visits to the Excelsioi Lire Concerts at Massey Hall; Ski I >..
Seneca; the lunior School plays now involving tirade 4. 5 as well as 7; Norval; the Contact Theatre visit: the
Swimming Gala etc. We have also seen the introduction of some new activities, particularly in the field
Art where Mrs. Grieve has taken out Grade 7 Art group to two exhibitions, the R.O.M.. and a gallery, the
McMichael Collection at Kleinberg. and to Harbour front. This widening aspect of out programme has been
well received and its resounding success will ensure its permanence in the curriculum.
The sports programme under the direction of Messers McMaster and Dunkley has continued to supply-
varied physical activities to all boys in the lower school on both school and house teams. 1 was privileged to
accompany Mr. Smith and his B team on their visit to Ottawa to take part in the Indep-Schools U-B tourna-
ment. Teams from Vancouver. Ottawa, Halifax. Winnipeg. Hamilton. St. Catharines, and Toronto took part,
and though we did not make the play oils the team gave good account of itself on the field, and was a
credit to St. George's College off the field.
1 cannot put pen to paper and write about school activities without some mention of the ladies' Ouild
and their tremendous support of many Lower School activities. I would like to pay tribute to their kindness
in making a uenerous donation ot s 1 . 1 00.00 towards the particular swinn 1 amine expenses, enabl-
ing us to offer swimming on a year round basis. The hard work carried out by Mrs. Knight and her ladi
the annual Rummage Sale was the main reason for this generous donation.
Writing of wot k and donations. I want to commend all those walkers, 95 pet cent of the Lower School
who took part in the Canterbury Cathedral Restoration Fund Walkathon, and raised 12,875.00. We were
thanked tor our efforts bv Mr. Roland Michener who made ,1 visit to the school and addressed the 1 owei
Si hool at a special assembly.
I will close this message as I began with Dr. [ohnson who said that, "at 77 it is time to be in earnest" and
hope that the boys of the Lower school will paraphrase that great mans remark to "in '77 it is time I

GARDENS OF BABYLON
As the winter snow melts,
Mountain streams run full.
Life, gardens full of blossoms,
Shining in the sun and covering

Winter's first snow fell silently

shaped spirits and ending their fall
from the silv'ry-gray limits tall.
There was a man who looked so hig

of one soft spirit that sealed his fate.
Winter's first snow fell on his face

J'ai une amie tres pres de mois que a un grave probleme. Bien qu'elle ne
soit pas en sante parfaite, elle va mieux que beaucoup de ses prochains.
Mais elle a mal au ventre depuis quelques annees, et maintenant son nouveau
medecin, un fou qui n'a aucun droit de manier un scalpel, veut la dissequer
et sortir toutes ses entrailles. Quoi faire? ! !
Mon amie? — c'est le Canada, notre cher pays. Et ce boucher fou s'appelle,
naturellement, Rene Levesque, premier ministre du Quebec, leader du Parti
Quebecois, et partisan du separatisme pour le Quebec. Voila L'idiotie de
ce (docteur) audace et presomptueux: apres avoir gagne quarante pourcent
seulement du vote populaire dans l'election d'octobre dernier, il croit que,
lors du referendum, les Quebecois voteront, d'une maniere retentissante,
se separer du Canada. Et. Levesque parle comme si le separatisme est
imminente, comme s'il est dans l'avenir proche. Voila un exemple de ces
niaiseries dans son discours au Club Economique de New York.
Il parle de cette inevitabilite, mais a-t-il demande l'avis sur le separatisme
de tous au Canada? Bien sur que non. C'est comme un chirurgien qui opere
sans consulter des rayons X! ! !
Levesque. comment a-t-il pris les renes du pouvoir? C'etait une election
pour un gouvernement au Quebec, pas pour le separatisme. La victoire du
Parti Quebecois n'indique point que tous les gens dans la province revent
a l'independance. C'etait le cas que les Liberaux perdaient plutot que le
Parti Quebecois gagnait. Levesque, lui-meme, etait surprise d'avoir gagne.
Franchement, le separatisme serait la ruine de la confederation du
Canada. Cette action couperait le pays en deux parties. Divisees comme ca,
ces parties deviendraient de plus en plus isolees; ensuite. les (Maritimers)
pousseraient des cris pour leur propere independance. Le Canada cesserait
d'exister. Il faut done que tous les citoyens du Canada fassent partie au
scrutin, s'il aura lieu. Quoiqu'un grand nombre de Canadiens, je pense, ait
de la compassion pour les Canadiens-Francais et pour leur cause, a mon avis,
ils ne diraient jamais que le separatisme soit la solution.
Cependant, Monsieur Levesque continue a recrire l'histoire due Quebec,
a recrier les issues de sa campagne (il avait fait campagne en attaquant la
corruption du regime de Bourassa, mais a New York il a atteste qu'il
faisait campagne pour le separatisme et pour le separatisme seulement);
il continue a recrire les promesses de son parti, et a recrire Le nombre
d'adherents du separatisme.
En somme, mon amie pourrait survivre (j'espere que oui), ou elle
pourrait en mourir. En tout cas, il faut que nous, les Canadiens, poursuivions
Levesque, le medecin fou, en justice, pour la negligence medicale. Qu'est-ce
que vous pensez '.

THE MURDER OF ALAN WINER
It's three o'clock in the morning and I can't fall asleep; boy what a rip. "Oo waa! " I growled, enough for my ten year old
brother to hear. "No not now, not tonight," mumbled my brother Cameron in his sleep. "Don't hurt me! " he yelled.
When I heard him yell louder, I hopped out of my bed and ran over to his. With one knee on Cam's bed I asked him "What's
"Eh? " he said.
Suddenly my mother came charging in. "Mr. Donald Winer get out of your brother's bed! " she scolded. "You seven year
old brat! " It sure was funny of Mom to call me that, especially on her anniversary. I quickly ran back to my brother's bed
after she left. "Wake up," I whispered. "Wake up.
Cam, wake up."
Cameron rose from his bed and I told him what
had happened. He then explained to me that his
dream had been about, well. Mom killing Dad, and
the words he said in his sleep were what Dad said.
"Why do you want to know? " asked my brother.
"It was only a dream, Mr. Sherlock Holmes," Cam
"Stop that nonsense," I said. I just wanted to
know, I was-was curious."
"Just because you're seven and in grade five
doesn't mean you have to use all those fancy words,"
Cam said. "Never mind that," I said quickly to stop
the fight. "Listen, Mom and Dad are having a fight."

whispered. Let's go listen." "Ya," said my brother

"Shut-up, you piece of--" Mom cut Dad short and
ran into the kitchen. "Sue, I didn't — I mean 1
wasn't-I-Sue." He ran into the kitchen. Suddenly
we heard a scrambling. "Leave me alone, Alan! " she
yelled. "Wait dear," Dad said, "Not now, not tonight
. . .don't hurt me! " There was a loud scream which
sent us up on our toes. We crept down stairs to
see what had happened. We had a special peek hole
which we would look in-it was blocked. "I'll go
peak in the door," I said.
When I peeked in the door, I stood looking in.
big-eyed. There was my mother with a scarlet-red
butcher's knife, with strips of silver showing on
some parts; my Mom with blood in her hair as
thick as ice, melting as it dripped on her face; her
fist tight as rocks and her legs as stiff as a tree. Oh:
And my Dad! He had a large gouge on his shoulder,
and blood as thick as rope swiveled down his shirt.
His face was as blue as a sailor's uniform. And

A SATURDAY MORNING AT HONEST ERNIE'S
The obese stump of a sixty-five-year-old woman, dressed in a tawdry winter coat, waddled through the main entrance into
the warmth and bustling crowd of Honest Ernie's department store. Mabel stopped and put down her heavy shopping bag in
order to read a large advertisement. She stared dumbfounded at the sign for several moments. Then her eyes lit up and her face
came to life as she took hold of the advertisement's message. Ladies' polyester pants were selling at seven dollars a pair on the
fourth floor. Mabel lifted up her parcel and plodded toward the stairs with the thought of bargains spurring her on at a faster
pace. She pushed aside all people who blocked her path. Occasionally she jabbed one of them with her elbow and swore at them
under her breath. She gripped the banister to support her weight as she struggled to the top of the stairs.
Once on the second floor, Mabel stopped to catch her breath. She wandered aimlessly through the piles of children's
clothes; she picked something up every now and then, glanced at it, and tossed it back on the table. When she came to the
candy department Mabel cautiously checked to make sure that no one was looking, and then quickly scooped a few candies from
the container into her pocket. She chuckled to herself.
An enthusiastic male voice suddenly burst forth from the public address system. El Classo brand lampshades, it announced,
were selling at just three-fifty-nine each at the east end of the second floor. Having now forgotten what she had originally come
up here for, Mabel made her way toward the stairs going up. On her way a woman, one of the bargain-hunters rushing east,
bumped into her. Mabel's pudgy, deep-lined face turned a ferocious red as she bawled an obscenity at the woman, who ran on
with the crowd.
Eventually she arrived on the third floor. It was, save for a few people, empty. Exhausted, she threw herself down on a
couch and took out a half-finished bag of Cheese Crunchies from her shopping bag. While she stuffed her mouth, Mabel admired
the gaudy flower pattern of the couch on which she was relaxing and gazed round at the other furniture. Then something on
the wall caught her eye. That reproduction, a pastel picture of a woman's face on black velvet, was beautiful. With its stunning
gold plastic frame it would be a perfect addition to the hall of her home. Mabel dusted the crumbs from her face and coat onto
the sofa, left the plastic bag crumpled on the floor and, picking up her parcel, waddled over to the wall. The picture was a
masterpiece, and yet it was selling for just five dollars and fifty cents. She took it
to the cashier's desk. Mable thought she heard the cashier snicker at the sight of
the purchase, so she glared rudely at her. With her wallet almost empty but a
great piece of art in her possession, Mabel strutted proudly down the two flights
K SJ = >7' " *') of stairs, nudging people aside, and found her way out to the street.

Silence isn't really a word in .1 sense, but almost a living tiling. It is moving among the people, arriving at each person at a
ditlerent time. It can have a ghostly feeling about it. sometimes you dread it. sometimes you adore it. but most frequently
you dread it. It comes like a disease. A disease which makes you jump, your nerves are alert to the slightest sound, at which
you suddenly tense up. It puts a certain feeling into the air, one of uncertainty, and insecurity. It brings you to think that
something bad is about to happen, something that you wouldn't like. It also makes the air seem heavy, and you become frightened
at the slightest sound.
Silence has a good side also, dining the day that is. It gives you a time to relax and collect vour thoughts. Il also L'ives you
time to do your work; if there is a large amount of noise you keep getting interrupted and your work will be ot lower quality.
So afterwards there is more noise produced by the assigner of the task.
Silence can also have a feeling ot loneliness. When you are sit tine In yourself and everyone else [ iway, you feel
lonely, secluded, isolated and almost as if you're an alien on a different planet and nobody is there to guide you.
But then the proper time comes for it to go away. And then the time comes, it is gone, the deadly grasp of silence.

THE FALLING LEAF
On the summit of a brown structure, creeping up through
the sky, (as if wanting to touch the stars) there is a very
small brownish green object which gently sways to and
fro. This magnificent specimen of creation though old is
still hanging on but will soon let go.
The other occupants of the brown domain, that are
worried about the leaving of one of the inhabitants, droop
low in sadness.
Suddenly, a violent breath of the heavens shakes the
old thing until it is forced to let go and then it starts its
soft journey towards that gigantic green place.

THE Kll I
The ducks were flying away foi the winter.
and down in the marsh stood a beaming hunter.
He lifted his gun and aimed with his eve.
he cocked the hammer, and shot to the sky.
The bullet made contact, the duck was hit.
The duck dog readied in a nearby pit.
The duck was now falling unto the ground
and across the water shot a well-trained hound.
He picked up the duck by its neck so limp\ .
The ducks Hew on, leaving the one who was skimpy.
They continued on south so as not to he chilled
and they knew full-well that they could have been killed.
The hunter lifted his gun once more,
and into the skv the bullet did soar.
it missed its target and the hunter was mad,
yet all of creation was really quite glad.

A PRE-CAMBRIAN PARADOX
Love is a soft rock, a yielding Gibraltar,
An unwavering beam of light shot through a prism
With soft peacock hues sweetly dispalyed on the other side.
A rock that cries, and emotes her power
Through her own firm fragility.
The front door is open, the house stands waiting.
Light streams inside,
The window shutters open their arms to embrace the rising sun.
Cries of a new-born babe ring pink innocence
through the echoing hallways.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE
I sat cringing in my chair, seeking shelter from the cit)
people. And then-suddenly-they found me! I covered
my ears but still 1 heard it; the senseless speech droning on
foi endless measurements of time. The never-ending talk
of useless inventions and boring holidays. Then 1 fell.
Fell from the incredibly loud echoes ol the twentieth
century metropolis into-silence.
Total and complete silence. It had no dimensions, no
sensations, no form, yet-still-it was there, 1 was surrounded
in a motionless mass of noiselessness. And. in some strange,
mysterious way. I heard it. It was a loud sort of silence,
yet its presence was not discomforting. It lent me security,
and I felt safe in the shelter it provided. It built a wall around me and I was its companion.
I walked out into the kingdom of peace and tranquility and saw the true beauty ol silence. In every branch, in every stone,
in every little creature, I beheld the wonderful beauty. The sky talked to me of the glorious lite he lived. And together, we
talked for many hours, vet did not speak. And I heard him yet 1 did not listen. We became three great friends— me. the sky. and
As I explored and learned the ways of silence, I became so familiar with it that it became a common sound. I would sit
by the brook and watch it babble and gurble over the rocks, but still it did not make the slightest murmur. The birds whistled,
unheard, in the trees. Life was peaceful in the kingdom of silence and I became part of it. Hut, in the time that was to follow. I
would come to know the silence as I knew myself and it would take over all other things which were held precarious, in my
mind. I would worship it and it would be as a god unto me.
In time, the seasonal rains came and showered the earth with their pure enrichment. I tried to listen tor the faintest "drip"'
of rain hitting the soft ground but, like all else in that kingdom, there was no sound to hear. And my strange prophecy came
true-for I now knew the true meaning of the word "silence".
It was a void mass of shapeless condensation. It was a commanding mist of swirling tears. It preyed upon -and devoured-
sound. It was master of all the universe beyond our tiny, insignificant world. It had the power of lite and death, and it could
make the world stop-motionless-whenever it pleased. Loud, yet soft, were its sorrowful cries. It was weakening to the
stereophonic smog of noise. But still it tought on without complaint. It is said that good will defeat evil-and so must silence
defeat the loud rumbling noises of mankind.
I sat in amazement-amazement at my realization of the true meaning of silence. Its pure and gentle beauty, and its
eternal existence. From Aristotle to Galileo to Einstein, from Einstein to me-all men have wondered about it. And now. I
have found it.
From the beginnings of time it has been a sound of fortitude and strength, a sound of courage and forgiveness, a sound of
beauty and peace. It is. . .the sound of silence.
D. Gorden 7.
The intruder had entered the room,
and ear-piercing noise broke the silence of the dark;
lights flashed off the walls,
orange flourescent beams of laser guns,
glowed brilliantly against the ceiling,
spinning like a ferris wheel out of control;
enclosing walls trapped the foreign being,
engulfed in blue flames escaping from the floor,
the intruder disappeared into the eeriness of space and time.

ST. GEORGE'S COLLEGE
GRADES 9-13 SURVEY
- Grade 12/13 should have places within the school for smoking. The practice of forcing people out to the backsteps is barbaric.
- Rubberized Asphalt should be put down, because almost every sport can be played on it, and in the long run it will be
cheaper than replacing the sod every 3 or 4 years which is usually ripped off the first weekend it is put down.
- 1 like the school because it is all male. This breeds a good atmosphere between students and between students and staff.
- We need a coke machine.
- Invite God to Thursday and Friday Chapel services.
- St. George's has always been a demanding School, sometimes too demanding. However, I have never regretted attending here
and in today's society, a private school of St. George's caliber is essential.
- Academically, athletically, and socially S.G.C. offers more than any school I have observed. Personally S.G.C. has done a
lot for me and vise-versa. I was hesitant at first to come; the work is hard, heavy and most of all worth my while!
- 1 think that the Students' Council should not be responsible for damage to automobiles in the parking lot.
- Are you kidding, next year I'm leaving!
- No mention was made as to whether or not the science fair is justified. ... One must realize that a non-Georgian describes the
college as the one with the science fair, not the school with the chapel or losing teams.
- I believe the back field should be turned into a cesspool, let dry, then sold off as fertilizer.
- The back field should be turned into an enormous botanical garden and filled with palm trees.
- What would you do if we all had to dress like Mongolian Swineherders?
- I think this school should not have dress regulations. If this school wants to be noticed, it should have good academic and
physical education qualities.
- 1. More holidays; 2. Dress Code should be liberalized; 3. More sex education; 4. Longer hockey season.
- I would like to see more of a variety of subjects during the day and let us out 40 minutes later. Subjects such as drama, shop,
- The school is small, but has a good spirit. I think the way the masters and students communicate is great.
- As far as being an educational institution I feel that S.G.C. provided an excellent atmosphere and programme that would not
have been enjoyed anywhere else.
- Female teachers might cause students to act a little more maturely. They might be embarrassed more easily if they fooled
around in front of her.
- A greater school spirit would be super. How to do it? That would require great thought on the part of staff and students.
- I believe St. George's is an excellent school with excellent teaching facilities as well as teachers. The athletic programme is es-
sential as well as very adequate. With respect to the back field 1 believe it should be covered with rubber asphalt so any number
of sports could be played. Either that or extend the parking lot so that some students or at least grade thirteen, should be able
to park there. 1 think the masters and upper school students should take more initiative in making the house system work. It
really has very little influence in the school at the moment but 1 believe it could easily be made into a more enthusiastic aspect.
I believe chapel is rewarding to some but also very useless for others. Thus I propose a trial system of optional chapel services
in the mornings and a compulsory service on Friday afternoons. This idea of detentions for missing chapel is rather childish.
You can't force religion on anybody.
- On the whole 1 believe St. George's College is the best school in the city and I would not go anywhere else. The friendships
with students and masters are unbelieveable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
- In my humble opinion, this school exists as an excellent alternative to the public school system. However, the pomp and
cermony that go with a private school detracts from S.G.C.'S effectiveness as a school. The prefect system, for example, is out-
moded in today's society. Setting up an elite in a grade means a two class system. This causes unnecessary antagonisms between
the students, and the tasks required of the prefects do not seem to require the creation of a privileged class. Instead, a duty
system involving the whole of grade 13 would be a better alternative.
- I suggest that there should be a more lenient dress regulation, like being able to wear good shirts other than white.
- I feel a feasible suggestion would be to locate a tennis court on top of the Founder's Hall Gym.
- I would like to see an extention of the art and music programme into the senior grades.
- I feel that the teachers are excellent and take great concern for the students. But I also feel that a different way of dividing
classes should be made using maturity level instead of intelligence.
- The social life has been brought up greatly this year due to the good student's council.

It was a hard season filled with many pitfalls
and problems. Our coach. Tim Burns, became
ill early in the season and as a result missed the
rest of the soccer games. It was an uncertain ill-
ness from which he is making a good recovery.
The team was very glad to hear that. This year
the 1st soccer had the greatest potential vet we failed to live
up to it. It is disappointing, but more than winning, the team
members learned to work with one another. Early in the sea-
son players were exhibiting good skill and team play, just as
good if not better than the best of the teams. It was the 3rd
year with the same coach and his coaching talents were really
shining for the team. It seemed it would be the year of St.
George's lst's and I believe it very well could have been if we
had not lost him early in the season. With Tim Burns ill, there
were many arguments and disputes within the squad concern-
ing partners and play. Most were ironed out and for those
problems that weren't, I take responsibility. The team had
lost some of its unity but we still held together. Most mem-
bers of the squad had worked together in previous years. The
new players to the team proved to be a great asset with regard
to play, spirit, and skill. I think the potential this coming year
will be equal to, or even surpass last year's if the younger
members were an indication of the play to be seen in the

players had a good year. We certainly didn't have a winning
season. The team experienced something better than win-
ning. Through play in practice and games, new friends were
made and old friendships were strengthened: each individual
grew with respect to understanding and working with the
other 'guys' and a greater awareness of the game and of
team sport was acquired. In the long run this is more impor-
tant than winning the season. There will be many memories
about the bus rides to games, the time spent discussing play,
lineups and the curse of the 'gimp toot', and there are manv
Being the last year for many 1st soccer players including
myself we all wish the team the best in the year to come.
The squad wishes to thank Mr. McMaster for his assist-
ance in the absence of Tim Burns. Thanks are also extended
to Mr. Love for showing up at the last few games.
To Tim Burns, thanks for all your time and effort.
STRIVING WITH COMPETITIVE ZEAL
This year's U16 soccer team enjoyed
the school's finest soccer year. We play-
ed consistently well under the coaching
of Mr. Love, who put in a lot of his
time, effort and great enthusiasm. All
our players gave big efforts in every
game. Among our biggest games was a
narrow 1-0 loss to the French School's
1st team. We won a thrilling game over
UCC's 2nd team after coming from be-
hind for a 3-2 win. We played Crescent
to a 1-1 draw and lost to Laketield
4-3. Besides our 3-2 win over'UCC we
defeated Appleby 3-1, Pickering 5-2.
we tied Crescent 1-1, and defeated
Appleby again 2-1. The net minding
on U16 was done by Tom Riley and
U17 by Greg Fox. The U16 consisted
of Mike Flowers, Brad Hodgson, Jamie
Brenzel, Mark Worrall, Bruce Lawes,
Mike Gee. Geoff Morphy. Chris Winship,
Rob Secor, Geoff Bernardo. The U17
team consisted of Keith Lawes, Mike
Holmes, Fraser Phillips, M. Flowers,

The Under 14 team was put together to play in a tourna-
ment in Ottawa. We played four games and lost, but not
because the team did not work. They are all to be com-
mended for their hard work on the field and for giving up
their Saturday mornings for practices. At this time, we
would like to thank Mr. Smith and Mr. Tansey for their
excellent coaching and driving. It was an extremely
educating experience. The Under 14 team had a much
improved season with a record of 3 wins, 5 ties and 2 losses.
Under the expert coaching of Mr. Smith we had a good
season. All the players are to be commended for their en-
thusiasm and great team-work which made the season a
great success. We would like to extend our appreciation to
Mr. Smith. It was a very successful year.
The '76 - '77 season was a banner one for the Firsts.
For the first time in the ten year history of the team our
opposition was primarily made up of 1st teams from
other I.S.A.A. schools. Attaining this goal was further
complimented bv the fact that the team was competitive
with the established I.S.A.A. teams. We started the year
off strongly but slumped in early January with highly
unexpected losses to U.C.C.II.
One of the highlights of the season was the invitation
to participate in the Kawartha Lakes High School Hockey
Tournament. As a result of this tournament return games
with Crestwood S.S. (Peterborough) and Sen. O'Connor
(Toronto) were arranged.
This year's team members were as follows starting at

The team sported an impressive group ot rookies who
displayed some excellent potential. Also our goalies
proved once again that we couldn't have done as well
without their excellence in goaltending.
1 felt this year was a great success despite the many
injuries on the team. This season's 'injury of the year
award' goes to Scott Cameron, who successfully faked a
shoulder injury for many weeks just so he could pick his
girlfriend up alter school. The runner up lor the award
goes to 'Fat Geets' who would be awa) in case Scon made
it to a practice. The winner ot the 'missed the net award'
goes once again to Brian Hill toi his consistency in being
able to miss that big wide opening. The 'most consistent
crawler award' goes to D.C. McMastei who constantly tell
down in an attempt to show us that he can be as graceful as
Dorothy Hamil too! The big award to the 'most out of
shape player' goes to Mungo 'the King' Meyrick who proved
to have the largest GUT! , garnished delicately with wriggly

The under 14 team enjoyed a short, but competitive sea-
son of hockey. Coached by Mr. Clayton, with the able assist-
ance of Sandy McLaren, this team of rookies and veterans
from grades 7, 8, and 9 played 9 games; winning 3, losing 5
and tying 1.
The hockey program focused on two main objectives.
Twice-weekly practice sessions at Forest Hill Arena stressed
skill development. Various conditioning, skating, shooting,
positioning drills were employed. The one scheduled game
per week provided the players with the opportunity to put
their skills to good use and to develop the attitudes which
are necessary for sound team play. As the season progressed
improvement was evident in both of these areas.
The team play featured the steady, and at times, heavily-
relied upon goaltending of Hugh Phillips and Steve Crerar:

This has been an excellent year for swimming at St.
George's College. For the first time we have been able
to put forth a full Junior and Senior team with many
reserves. Clearly, interest in swimming has escalated
considerably over the past year and this is perhaps due
to several occurrences of which three come readily to
mind. First of all the team members themselves are to be
congratulated for the incredible spirit they have generated
among one another. It takes much more than a mild in-
terest to turn out at 7:00 AM for an hour's training every
Monday. Wednesday and Friday! On top of this to attend
afternoon sessions every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday!
However, most team members were out 90 per cent of
the time and the captain, James Tasker, set a fine example
by being in attendance almost 100 per cent! This type of
team spirit is the foundation of any successful team and
we certainly experienced it this year and trust that it
will gather even greater momentum by this time next
Secondly we must thank our Ladies Guild for their
indispensible financial support which indeed enabled us
to utilize the enthusiasm generated in the team by
providing us with the necessary funds to obtain maximum
pool time at St. Alban's Boy's Club pool where we train.
Without this our aspirations would have been rendered
Thirdly, but not the least was the additional skill,
knowledge and exhuberance of our new assistant coach
Mr. Richard Mundinger. Richard comes to us from U. of T.
where he is involved in computer science. His interest and
coaching ability has been of great value to the team and we
hope to see him actively employed in our services again
next year; he has been a most successful addition to our
As well, the afternoon diving program was headed by
Mr. Birkett who somehow pulled a team together for the
I.S.A.A. swim meet, and managed to form at least a few
competent divers out of nothing. There were even some
interesting and new variations in front and back somersaults
by people who couldn't even do them.
The climax of the year was the I.S.A.A. swim meet against
Appleby, Ridley, St. Andrew's U.C.C., T.C.S., Hillfield
and Crescent. St. George's came sixth out of eight, missing
fifth place by one point. Although we were outclassed in
a number of the races, there were more important gains
made by the 4x50 yd. medley relay team; Malcolm Ness,
James Tasker, Peter Coward, and Grant Thompson. Pat
Yost came seventh in the 200 yd. freestyle breaking his
previous best. This is an outstanding achievement since he
is in Grade Seven. James Tasker came fourth in the 100 yd.

points as last year.
I would like to thank Mr. Baxter, Mr. Birkett. Richard
Mundinger and the team for working hard to accomplish this
and I hope next year will be better still

A friend of mine once said to me that the best part of a
basketball game is the last two minutes, his theory being that
the last two minutes enabled him to witness the most impor-
tant part of the game - the final score. Now his approach to
watching basketball games does not apply to football or hock-
ey. What this suggests is that he is not totally ignorant when
it comes to sports and where his priorities lie. T!ie important
thing is which team wins, and if the sport involves good clean
violence, the more the better. In basketball body checking
is not prevalent and therefore uninteresting to the trained eye
of the collision sport tan. but it is nice to note that basket-
ball does rate at least two minutes viewing time.
This year the St. George's First Basketball Team did not
provide many victories with which to please the last-minute
viewer, but under Mr. Dunkley's coaching the first 30 min-
utes become more important than the last two. In order for
a basketball team to compete seriously it must be prepared
to play basketball for the entire game. What all the last-min
ute viewers will not realize is that our basketball team played
every game as well as any other team in the league, and it is
a tribute to Mr. Dunkley's and the team's hard work that a
school of such a small student bodv is able to field a team
which can play good solid basketball tor thirty-two minutes.
In the full time limit ten times as many things are done as in
the last two minutes, ten times as many plays, ten times as
mam passes and ten times as much hard work. This is what
our team and anv other basketball teams strive tor. In pti |
ration for games, hours are spent learning and practising the
plays and fundamentals that make up a good basketball team.
Learning to plav the game comes before winning: even it St.
George's is not a winning team this ve.tr. it certainly is a bas-
The fact that St. George's was not a winning team is not
to say we didn't win any games. So, tor the last minute view-
ers we present the overtime victory over previously undefea
ted Bishop Ridley College. For 32 minutes plus an addition

have ever seen any team play. With the nucleus >'t the team

Some great philosopher once said "winning isn't impor-
tant, it's how you play the game". Well, after our first few
games, 1 came to the bovious conclusion that he must have
played for St. George's.
We opened our season at U.C.C. and like the gracious
guests we are, we snatched a defeat from the jaws of
victory. With six seconds to play we turned over the ball.
Upper Canada scored and won, 34-32. The next two games
were not that much better. The team played well but lost
by ten and three points. After we got creamed by U.T.S.
it was suggested that we go home and get our Sumari
However, our luck changed. With the scoring power of
our forwards and the play-making of the team's guards we
started to win. The first victims of our onslaught were T.C.S.
We edged them 51-22. After this we did not look back
as we won our last four games.
The season was a success as we finished with a winning
record. It is always easy in articles like these to praise the
starters, those of us whose skills or experience mean more
play than the others; however, the people who really make
up the heart and soul of a team are those who sweat and
strain during practice only to sit on the bench. Great thanks
and praise to Riley, Beatty, Brenzel and Wigle are called for.

GRADE EIGHT CANOE TRIP 1977
For the fourth consecutive year the St. George's Grade Eight Canoe Trip
will be undertaken in Algonquin Park from Monday June 20 until the fol-
This has been a highly successful event in the past and no doubt will be
just as successful this year. The group will be predominantly Grade Eight
with some Grade Nines led by Mr. Robin Fulford, Mr. Andrew Barlow, Guy
Burry and Mr. John Kiddell.
Canoes and canoe packs are rented from Algonquin Outfitters, while paddles,
life preservers, and tents are provided by the students.
The route is chosen for its variety: lakes, rivers, marshes, and frequent
portages. These portages exceed a mile in length, but they are spaced out so
that exhaustion is not the main feature of the trip. The overall distance is
approximately fifty miles.
During the trip instruction is given in camping skills such as wood cutting,
fire-making, basic skills of canoeing, and, of course, protecting one's self
from the camper's enemies: mosquitos and black flies. Fishing and swimming
(sometimes involuntarily) are also frequent activities. All contribute to the
over-all recreational spirit.
In spite of burnt food, cold water, aching shoulders, insect bites, and
sunburn, the Grade Eights will, surprisingly, enjoy themselves thoroughly.

The 11th Science Fair attracted an estimated total of 500 visitors for the two nights of January 20 & 21. This occasion
produced the largest visitor turnout per participating student in the College's 13th year. Obviously a popular and integral
function. Grade nine, ten & eleven exhibited the 127 projects. As usual the Applied Science and Engineering category was
the largest, entertaining 46 per cent of the entrees. Life Sciences comprised 20 per cent of the project body, with Maths and
Physical Sciences counting for 19 per cent of the total mass of exhibits. Environmental Sciences registered a less earth shatter-
ing 15 per cent of the projects submitted. There were many memorable exhibits, namely. Dean Turney's "Introduction to the
Maths of Infinity." This was effective; but, unfortunately, went on and on. Paul Shepherd was able to display a "blackhole".
One looked into the retainer through an observation hole and saw nothing but black. Peter Keresteci's fermentation samples
were popular but, somehow two bottles of his home brew mysteriously vanished even though security was tight. Many people
were interested in Mike Saunder's topic which does much to reflect the buildings of the future. Mike traced man's pyromani-
cal tendencies and had his attempts to produce four bombs filmed. Incidently, the cameraman missed the only successful ex-
plosion. John Northcott's "Baseballs and Bullets" was good but would have had more impact with an accompanying demon-
stration. Keith Fletcher's "Water-drop Generator" revealed a potential energy leak, while David Reive explained that "Quarks"
are theoretically possible, but in reality not a particle of truth can be found to substantiate quark existence. Chris Winship did
his exhibit on "Cryogenics" and proved that one can boil coldfish successfully--an interesting entree.
The judging was performed by fifteen judges comprised of
four Old Boys; John Bartram. John Lemke. Bob Snelgrove,
and Dave Williams, two U of T Professors, a Professional En-
gineer, a Chemist, an author/lecturing Professor, and Inde-
pendent School representatives from Branksome. Lakefield.
Ridley, St. Andrew's and Upper Canada College. One judge
expressed the opinion that the calibre of the projects was
mediocre only in the sense that there were no bad projects,
but also a few outstanding ones. Geoff Wheatstone and com-
pany (Grade 13 Biology), constructed a working model of the
mousetrap which had appeared on the Science Fair posters. It
made a C.F.T.O. & a C.B.C. T.V. appearance on Friday, Jan.
21st on the 6 & 11 p.m. news. One can imagine the impression
this may have left: all the television viewers seeing the mousetrap
believe they have been properly exposed to a St. George's
College Science Fair. In any event, the Science Fair did com-
municate ideas. 1977, "the year of the mouse", was a pre-
cedent for Science Fairs which follow - a challenge to all those
who believe they can "build a better mousetrap".
Again this year, we ran successful one week
science schools for grades four to eight. Although
each form master and I taught classes in a vari-
ety of specific areas, much of the time was de-
voted to field studies. In these, the boys worked
in small groups to thoroughly investigate a speci-
fic topic in the natural sciences. They had a week
after their return in which to organize their find-
ings - and conclusions - into a well written, well
illustrated presentation. The emphasis in both
the field work and the presentation was on per-
3 E»B DD
sonal observations, building toward research.
As different topics are covered with each
grade, a boy lucky enough to go to Norval each
year from grade four to grade eight receives a
well rounded course in scientific research related
to the outdoors.
As the pictures show, all the bovs are able to
turn free time into fun time, as well as develop-
ing their ability to get along with one another.

THE DYNASTY IS OVER! !
For the first time in three or four years the Master's baseball team was defeated, but understandably so, for they were
beaten by a superior team. This year's grade 13, who had been playing the role of possom for the previous years, decided it
was time to show their stuff. They went out on the field with absolutely no fear and using only their skill, handily defeated
the degenerating and obese masters.
The 13's rolled to a 9-5 victory. Yes it's true, the dynasty is over! ! But we can't blame the masters. Just look at some ot
their players. If "stick" Fulford is turned sideways, you can't even see him, and "coach" McMaster thinks first base is a
hockey net and thus throws the ball to the first baseman's stick side.
It was a great game, but the most important thing was that we all had a lot ot fun. The Masters, who hadn't lost in a number
of years, still didn't forget how. They were the most graceful losers that you could imagine although three of them stuck their
heads in the mound and the others proceeded to break all the bats. After the game they invited us all to share in a round of
refreshment but we did most of the talking.
Later we gave them a second chance and as Mr. Wright would say, "We got edged." There is no doubt that we have the
greatest group of men teaching at our school that is possible, and on behalf of the grads - thanks tor all the great times. We
will never forget them.
On Thursday. March 10th the annual St.
Georges' Hockev night was held. The one
evening in the vear when wisdom, cunning
and experience (the old boys) is pitted against
inexperience, youth, and physically tit bodies
(the first team).
It was a close game and both sides played
The first goal was scored minutes into the
first period by Peter Mevrick ot the first
team. The Old Boys immediately came back
with a goal by Brook Biscoe. Unfortunately,
after this point the Old Boys' wisdom, cun-
ning, and experience gave way to youth and
physically tit bodies and they were edged
seven to one.
The goals were scored by (in order) Doug
Richmond. Scott Cameron, Doug Richmond,
Dave Irvin, Fraser Phillips and again Doug
After the game both of the teams retired
to the Steak and Burger Tavern to share some
beer and talk shop.
The evening was enjoyed by all who attend-

Without a doubt, 1976-77 was a most successful year in
the history of St. George's College dances. It was also the
first year for the elected Social Committee (Peter Burnside,
Bill Deacon and Geoff Wheatstone).
October 23, 1976 was the night of STUMBL1N BLIND.
Geoff Wheatstone, who was the main organizer of this
dance, booked a hard rock band. It was our first dance and
we didn't really know what to expect. To our surprise, apart
from some delays due to faulty wiring, the dance turned out
to be the most financially profitable in the history of the
Student's Council. As a matter of fact, our net profit was
considerably higher than the amount of money that the
Student's Council of two years ago had to their name at the
end of their tenure.
For the next dance, we had a dream. That dream was to
put a big name band in the Upper School Gym. Surprising-
ly enough, Mr. Wright agreed to let us use the Gym. We then
booked Wireless for Jan. 21 - a band who had played the
concert bowl at Maple Leaf Gardens. Posters were made up
and two weeks before the gig, the booking agent informed
us that the band was unable to play the 21st because of a
cross-Canada tour that they were going on with April Wine.
After some wheeling and dealing, we postponed the
dance to Feb. 18 (Fate was on our side because the previous
date was the day of the big snow storm). We secured a stage
from U.C.C. and to our shock the day before we found out
that we had an incredible problem. Wireless needed 100 amp
Three Phase power. St. George's could only supply 100 amp
Single Phase. We had three choices: cancel the dance, run a
jumper line from Bathurst Street ($900.00), or rent a gener-
ator ($250). Our choice was the last. Even though our expen-
ses on this single dance were higher than the 1976-77 pre-
vious Council had spent during their entire year, we managed
to attract 500 people (more than any other dance in St.
George's history). Though the sound was rough as a result of
the cement walls of the gvm, St. George's had held a dance
with Wireless - probably the most spectacular band the
Independent schools have ever seen.
The last dance of the year on April 1 5, was the most en-
joyable of all. Abbey Road played amid three T.V. sets
(Leaf-Flyer series) before one of the most enthusiastic
crowds we have ever had. The guys in the band were genu-
inely friendly and as a result they played a half-hour over-
time. Every song they played was Beatles and every song
was danceable rock and roll. The stomping tor an encore
just about brought down the root of Ketchum Hall. Ever)
one had a great time. 1 hear rumours that next year's Coun-
cil might be booking this band tor a dance - and 1 hope they
do. Abbey Road is the sort ot band that will grow in popu-
larity. We will all keep an eye on their career - and watch out
Everyone comes to St. George's dances, even the
'Coneheads from Remulak'.
Abbey Road 'Flyers'. ('Goon's' three choices.)
This is a picture of a bunch of people standing around in
our big gym at our big dance.
At St. Clement's School on Sunday, M.iy 7, Mike
Hendrick and I attended the first-ever conference or
Student Leaders from various independent schools.
Everyone of the Southern Ontario schools was represen-
ted. We went to this conference with mixed teelings -
we thought that the other schools would show better
systems than we had. We were wrong!
Of the 15 schools represented only two schools other
than St. George's had Student Councils, and both of
these schools stated they were going to scrap their Coun-
cils because they were 'useless'. All of these schools used
Prefects. There was no central treasury, no school meet-
ings, no disclosure of financial activities, no school repre-
sentation, and no democracy.
At St. G allege we should be thankful that we
have a system like the Students' Council. It assures that
there is no domination by the upper strata of the senior
school. Every Grade has two representatives and we have
a Middle Vice-President that must come tr. im Grade 8 or
9. The Senior Vice-President must come from Grade 12
and the Social Committee must have a member from
Grade 1 1 within its ranks. Our Students' Council is re-
sponsible to the students of the school. Every cent that
is taken out of the central treasury is voted on bv the
Council and their approval must be gained also when
booking Bands for dances. This is certainly a much dif-
ferent system than that used by our colleagues in other
If a difficult issue is put forward in a meeting, the
vote is brought back to the classes to assure that everv-
body plays a part in the decision-making process. It a
member of the Council is not doing his job. he may be
impeached by a two-thirds majority. All these elements
assure that our Council is run with maximum efficien
By making sure that the student feels that his voice is
being heard, there is created an important element called
ENTHUSIASM. And it is because of this student enthusi-
asm that St. George's has been able to raise an incredible
amount for various charities and to arrange dances which
are well-attended, most enjoyable, and financially profit-
able. In earlier years our Council's biggest problem was
money. However, with profits of S450.00 on the 'Stumb-
lin' Blind Dance'. $200.00 on "Wireless", and S250.00 on
"Abbey Road", the money problem has been alleviated
for the next few years. This year's Student Council will
leave next year's Council SI, 600 bank balance which
should be more than enough to achieve financial stab-
ility. Also this year, instead of the Ladies' Guild finan-
cially supporting the Council, we supported them for a
change with a substantial gift of money to offset the
cost of an electric scoreboard for the gymnasium.
As the result of our Students' Council there exists a
feeling of togetherness and communication which gives
our school more than the "class' of huge buildings and
fancy football fields - it gives our school the spirit that
makes it so great today.
But the Students' Council is something that should not
be taken for granted. The students of St. George's College
are blessed with a system that is unfamiliar to many other
private schools. On election dav students are asked to be
careful in voting tor it is a privilege that many other schools
do not have - they are urged to vote tor a candidate, not
because he is the most popular or because he had the
wildest advertising campaign, but because he is thought
to be the best person to represent the students.
The past year has been a successful one for the
77 Student Council.. ..the enthusiastic support of the
whole student bod) guaranteed it. Ti i nexl \ eai 's t <>un-

The United Way Campaign was again a great success, as
the Senior school raised over 6500 dollars in total and the
Junior school raised 2700 dollars tut the Canterbury
Cathedral Fund. Money collected by the Junior school was
made bv a biblical exodus from the school, that had over
one hundred refugees tram
ping through the streets of
Toronto - (a walk-a-thon).
Both grades 9-1 and 1 3 or-
ganized their own grub days.
Grade 111 held a swim-a-thon
that featured Raines Koby
as lifeguard and 900 dol-
lars as the total money
raised. Grade 9-2 also held
a swim-a-thon. Both grade
10 classes had bike-a-thons.
For grade 10-1. Jarjour.
Heisey, Shepherd and
Hughes volunteered to
brave the dangers of the
long and treacherous road.
Father Peglar set up various
pit-stops to fix bicycles,
pick up the dead, and revive the living. In spite of the dan-
gers which included drought and famine, some of the in-
trepid team managed to make it to Stratford in time to
catch the evening train home.
The most profitable venture for the United Way Cam-
paign was the Starve-a-thon organized by the 12-2 class.
They were well sponsored by the parents and students in
the school and they raised 1800 dollars in total. Grade 1 2 1
had a bike a thon as well. Grade 1 1-2 contributed in the
form of a skate-a-thon.
The total efforts of all
the classes clearly show the
determination and school
spirit that was present
throughout the campaign.
As a result of the 6600
dollars that the Senioi
school raised we were a-
warded a free concert organ-
ized by CHUM. The concert
featured Tease. Moxy and
April Wine. The concert was
held at the Sheraton Centre.
St. George's College has
won the United Way con-
cert by CHUM three years
in a row.
It was a fine effort by
everyone, and let's hope that next year will be even better.
The St. George's Debating Society, under the paternal
care of Father Pegler and the harried administration of Andy
Spears has muddled through another year. Many of the
school team's efforts were last-ditch affairs; however, the
many fine orators of our College performed wonderfully
under the circumstances. The team of Spears, Dingwall and
Roberts defended themselves admirably (if I do say so my-
self) against teams from St. Michael's and Havergal, winning
the former. The school's first invitation debate at the school
against a superlative team from St. Clement's was enjoyed by
all - but unfortunately we lost.
1 977 proved to be a better year. In spite of several last-
minute difficulties (like trying to get a third speaker), the
team of Harvey and Roberts strode courageously into the
enemy territory of St. Andrew's to participate in their tour-
nament. With the resolution "Canada Must Decentralise in
Order to Survive" clearly in mind, the St. George's team
won over St. Charles and also triumphed over a formidable
team from North Toronto.
The second annual Masters/Students debate was a real
crowd-pleaser. The team of Messrs. Kerr, Pegler and
Storey proved beyond a doubt that "Facial Hair Should be
Outlawed". Whether they will obey their own legislation is
another matter, however! The Roberts Harvev-Jansen
Trophv will be duly awarded to them on Prize Day.
The supply of debating titles for future years is formid-
able. The debaters leaving this year have nothing but happv
memories of both victories and losses. Debating is slowly but
surely establishing itself as an integral part of the life
A moment's rest
As can be seen in the few preceeding pages the choir had quite an
extensive tour to England last June and plans are already developing
for another tour next year.
For the choir, the 1976-77 season was very busy and successful.
The "A" Choir including the men sang at the opening of the United
Appeal Campaign. At Christmas the choir sang at the Museum tor the
third year in a row. We were invited to sing at the Woman's Canadian
Club Christmas luncheon held at the Four Seasons Hotel, where the
choir had the pleasure to perform for the Honorable Pauline McGibbon
and the wife of the Governor General, Madame Leger.
The annual service of lessons and carols was sung at St. Pauls Church
on December 15. Other events were: May 6th- school confirmation
service. May 17th- the whole school music program performed a concert
at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church. June 4th- the "A" choir sang at
Trinity College chapel. Finally, certain boys sang at several weddings
throughout the year, and the "A" choir participated at Prize Day by
singing in St. James Cathedral.
Credit goes to all those members of the choir who worked hard
in making it a success this year. Special thanks goes to Mr. White and
Mr. Bradley for their musical instruction. Thanks is also extended to
this years choir mothers-Mrs. Hunter and Mrs. Keresteci.

an assortment of unidentifiable foods
reputed to be, seal flipper pie, grits,
possum stew, hocks, rattlesnake steaks,
chitlens, and other vittles.
Around one A.M. this morning things
came to a close. The young couples could

keep them occupied until sunup.
MENS ASSOCIATION DINNER
This year's Men's Association Dinner was again expertly hosted by the
Rosedale Golf Club. A tasty dinner of roast beef was served, and the bar was a
centerpoint of activity both before and after the dinner. Highlights of the
evening included a toast to the Queen by
Mr. Wright, an excellent speech by
Dr. David Ouchterlony, the Gardner
dominated raffle draw, and the honour-
ing of the Grade thirteen graduating
class. Afterwards the students had an
informative rap session with some of
the teachers present- until the Rosedale
staff subtly suggested an end to the affair
by turning out the lights. Most im-
portant, a true St. George's spirit
dominated the evening, and contributed
to its outstanding success.

MEMO TO ALL STAFF MEMBERS FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Subject: Adjustment of Timetable
(Written by Fr. K.W. Scott)
Owing to Christmas exams and the necessity of accommodating special rehearsals by the choir, the following changes in
the timetable will be put into effect commencing Monday of this week:
1. Art periods for Grades VII- 1 and VI1-2 (periods 7 and 8) will be interchanged with Geography and French (periods 3
and 4), except for boys who normally take swimming, hockey, gym or music in periods 3 and 4. This will also necessitate
the interchange of periods 1 and 5, so that, in effect, period 6 now becomes period 3, period 7 becomes period 4, and period 5
becomes period 1, except for Grades IV and V.
2. Grade IV will eat lunch as soon as they arrive, or at the latest 8:45 a.m., and instead of normal lunch period will have
art, gym or C.K. depending on whether they are in A Choir, B Choir or Choir. Boys not in any of these choirs may go home
right after lunch, unless they are on clean-up duty, in which case they will report to Mr. Barlow at 3:30 in Room 21. (Note:
No. 1 dress will be worn on Mondays and Wednesdays instead of on Friday this week, Sunday is cancelled.)
3. Grade VI: Boys in Grade VI will follow the normal timetable for the week —except on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.
Thursday and Friday. Boys who are in A or B Choir will be excused from hockey and C.K. but must write their Science exam at
6:00 a.m. on Monday and their Social Studies exam on Tuesday at Midnight. There will be no lunch period for Grade VI any
day this week. Fr. Scott will supervise a special study period on Monday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for Grade 6. This means
that the normal chapel service at 8:45 on Monday will have to be conducted by Grade 4's class captain.
4. Other than the foregoing, the schedule of classes will proceed as normal.
5. Please note that no staff member will be allowed to be sick this week.
6. if any of the above is not clear, please consult with me in my office some time after the holidays,
