As I sit down to write this message for the yearbook, the front office is 
being torn apart to install a new air handling unit. The theme of 
disruption readily comes to mind. One need only reflect back to the 
start of this term to the onslaught of the "ice storm" of the century. 

Despite the disruption of the ice storm, the school coped very well. The 
devastation of many trees on the campus will, no doubt, become more 
noticeable as Spring comes. School Closing, normally under a canopy 
of leaves, may be set more in the sun (I hope!). 

Another major event in the life of the School was the Canadian 
Education Standards Institute (C. E.S.I.) report. There were many 
suggestions and recommendations emanating from this report. In 
particular, there were some very significant comments about our 
student body which I found to be most important. "Ashbury is a 
school with . . . , teachers who are dedicated to the school and students 
who are proud of their school ..." and "... students are polite and 
articulate young men and women". Of course, there were many other 
complimentary comments, including "The environment of Ashbury is 
a stimulating and caring one where the staff works hard to ensure 
students are challenged to attain excellence in a wide variety of 
programs ..." I believe that this challenge to excellence in a caring 
environment is what Ashbury is all about. We are successful because 
our students do that, day in day out, in a whole host of activities. 

This yearbook is a record of your year at Ashbury, for graduates of the 
Class of 1998, a most significant year. You will take from Ashbury memories which will endure — mostly good memories, I hope, 
centred on the friends you had at Ashbury and the events with which you were involved. The range of events, athletic, academic and 
otherwise is just amazing. So, too, is the talent of our students. 

Your experience at Ashbury will, of course, be very much related to what you personally have put into the school, in the classroom, 
on the sports field, in the common room, and in the various events of the year. Each School Assembly, as I look out on a sea of faces, 
I am always impressed by the enormous pool of potential and talent which I see. In the many highlights of this year, ranging from the 
tragic death of Princess Diana, to the ice storm, to your graduation, it is my hope that your 1997/98 year or your 1998 graduation year 
will be most notable for strong personal achievements and a happy and successful school year. In particular, I send best wishes to all 
our graduates for success at university and in life.

Assistant Headmaster 

"Another year, another Ashburian." This is a deceptively simple way to look at 
the publication of another in a very long line of Ashbury yearbooks. The 
statement ignores the very real importance of the Ashburian as a part of the 
history and tradition of the school. The Ashburian is a vital element of the school 
history - a record of the students themselves in a particular year. For each 
student, who may end up with a collection of Ashburians, or maybe just a single 
one, each yearbook is in some way of record of your time at the school. Certainly 
not "another Ashburian", but your Ashburian. 

The arrival of the Ashburian early in the new school year is a remarkable event. 
"Ashburian day" has to be the quietest day of the school year, with everyone 
busy checking out the pictures, the literature, the art & the write-ups. Later 
comes the important part of getting your yearbook signed, maybe with some 
special dedications. 

At this point the Ashburian really does become a personal history of your 
school year. It's something for you to keep, to look at later on and to remember 
with. But the yearbook is something more. Friends will use their Ashburian to 
remember you by. As well, the school will have a yearly record of you and the 
contribution that you have made. In that way the Ashburian makes you a part 
of the history of the school. And in that sense, you never really leave Ashbury 
at all.

I am an Outsider 

I am an outsider. 

No feelings do I have. 

I am an angel in hell. 

No content do 1 feel. 

I am death among the living. 

No friends do I share. 

I am the first snowflake. 

No praise do I obtain. 

I am ripple in the water. 

No appreciation do I receive. 

I am an outsider. 

I lament the norm 

Monika Merchea 


It's only words. 

Seen through your eyes, 

Tasted sweetly on your lips 

Echoing and Resounding in your ears. 

The roar of a Tiger. 

A word, on a page, 

in a book. 

Amongst books. 

A speech at a conference. 

Signs on a street. 

The meaning is lost, 

Their value is gone. 

Like wood in a raging fire. 

Dew drops of communication 

Taken by the sun 

Never to be the same, 

We have mangled Words 

into hollow caverns. 

Once precious moments, 

Like everything else. 

In this day and age. 

Have become concrete

From where we .ire lying 

I can barely see the dying embers; 

the tire's passii m as exhausted as ours, is lapsing away. 

Before the kindling was lit 

you were a virtuous, pure white sheet. 

In my selfishness I have ruined you. 

In my own mind you are debased tor accepting me.

so too dix'S my love.

Dear Death 

Heaven cries on my soul 

The light weeps 

Trie dark laughs 

My world is destroyed 

The grass grows longer 
The memories are weaker 
The glorious lamp of heaven 
Shines down 

Streaming tears that never stop 

Fall down my cheek 

Sting my heart 

I do not smile anymore 

My spirit rests 
Among the dead 
Buried with him 
My heart is lost 

I see his reflection 
In the light 
My life written 
In sand 

My heart is nothing 
But a broken flower 
That dances in the wind 
On his grave

The rush hour traffic was starting to reach this 
part ot town by now. and even after the fii 
days you could tell when they would all ^ome. It 
was almost as if the brighter it was. the more that 
came, but I guess that doesn't really apply now, 
with the days getting SO steadily darker. I can't say 
I enjoy doing this. I don't know about Jamie - I've 
never asked. Jamie and I have always disagreed 
over just about anything, since the day we met 
here on the street, doing what we were doing 
now. I guess the only thing we really agreed on 
was that this kind of work really is boring hell. 
After awhile, I had almost given up on this whole 
idea, but it's still work, and we all know how hard 
it is to find work worth doing these days. I was 
just going to add that life was really not that 
exciting after all - it really is rather bland and 
nothing like they make it to be - but then I 
remembered what they must think of me. 

an excerpt from •'The Outsider" by Young Fan 


The sun reflects off of his shining bald head 
as he listens. Listens to the silence and to 
the ocassional roar of a passing car. The 
rhythmic clicking of his walking stick and 
the endless path of bird seed leaking from 
his bulging bag distinguishes him as he 
plods down the street. Behind those deep 
black shades, flutter his eye lids. Clean- 
shaven his prune like skin is exposed. A 
warm smile greets you but within rest 
revolting baked bean teeth- 
Swaying like a sea ot in the ocean breeze, 
his frail body shivers. Five bony fingers 
clench his exhausted canteen This 
shrinking mass of skin and bones, hunched 
over in the grass Is resting. Feeding his 
only companion th birds. Still, with his 
bags and rags, wearing his U.S. dog tags.

The First Term interhouse events were 
filled with excitement and anticipation. As 
well, the New House Airbands and a 
teacher cake auction for the grad commit- 
tee were held. Memorable moments in- 
clude the judging at the m&m toss and 
many of Woollcombe's many resounding 
victories. At the end of the term, Wooll- 
combe leads, followed closely by New 
House, Alexander and Connaught. The 
stage is set for an exciting Winter Term 
in interhouse competition.

The Love of ( 

"Myth is the oblique image of an 

unwanted truth reverberating 

through time." T.W. This years 

performance was based on the 

timeless greek myth of Philomele 

and Procne, using the script of "The 

Love of the Nightingale" by Timberlake Wertenbaker. The dedicated cast and 

crew first began rehearsals in mid October, and began full rehearsals just after 

Christmas break. The issues were strong and public response varied. During the 

Marchbreak we visited Germany, performing three times in Heidleberg and once ] 

in Munich. The run in Ottawa, though panged with controversy over the I 

'censorship', went extraordinarily well. The emotionally mature play tried both 

actors and audience with their own understanding of morality. 

Many memories were made: two hour naps before performance in a stuffy " 
student lounge, German Disc-O-Very, rowdy Italian men, Munich subway 
system (with luggage), Mr. Simpson's expanded vocabulary ('Mac'), excellent 
youth hostel meals, eight sets of 'wild rain', 'in former times', Coke on the bus, 
Joe's red face, Oinkus meeting many nice Germans, MacDonalds anyone?, happy 
dance and an over zealous 'PROST' to all.

To Mr. Simpson we say thanks. 

Every curtain call we said thanks,but still it isn't enough. The effect you 
had on us will last forever, and so will our gratitude. You taught us 
strength, courage, respect, and integrity. You showed us the value of 
hard work and dedication, and instilled in all of us a great sense of self- 
confidence. Over the year you have been our teacher, our father, our 
harshest critic, our mentor, our brother, and our friend. You have been, 
and still are our inspiration. (Cast & Crew of Nightingale, 1998) 

The 1997-1998 Season of the 
Ashbury Music Department was, 
as usual, a great success. An 
unfortunate start with the contro- 
versial planned trip to South 
Africa, but talent and energy swept 
through all groups nonetheless. In 
April, members of the choir went 
on a rockin' trip to Toronto. "Can 
we use your stere-oh!", NSYNC at 
EC, Rent, Roy Thomson Hall, the 
new MEC. A fantastic Fall Concert, 
Carol Service at MacKay United 
Church, and out with an excep- 
tional Spring Concert left all in 
high spirits. To all those continuing 
next year, practice starts at 8:00 not 

Tine year had various musical 
highlights. Bryan, Stephanie, and 
Jonathan in West Side Story; Last 
Minute's popularity in assemblies; 
Chris winning the Trumpet Con- 
certo Contest; Sarah winning Silver 
and the Brass Ensemble's Bronze at 
Kiwanis; and many others, a mere 
cross section of the vastly talented 
students. This year marks the 
passing of a musical group who 
passed through from Grade 7 with 
Mr. Merritt and Mr. MacLean, into 
Grade 9 with Mr. Tanod and gather- 
ing steam along the way. On our 
way out now, we wish good luck 
and best wishes to all continuing and 
new participants in the Ashbury 
Music Department in years to come. 
Just remember, it's not how you 
play, it's how loud you play! (Neil)

Japan Trip 

During the March Break, 12 Ashburians ac- 
companied by Miss Lewicki and Mr. Mont- 
gomery visited the land of The Rising Sun. 
The trip was part of the exchange program 
with Asago Junior High School and gave the 
group the opportunity to spend two weeks 
in Asago, Hiroshima, and Kyoto. Asago is a 
picturesque little townof 7,000 people, about 
2 hours from Osaka and Kyoto. The genuine 
friendliness and warm hospitality of our 
homestays, and indeed all at Asago Junior 
High School, put us quickly at ease. A busy- 
daily schedule included visits to Jinsho 
Temple, Dajyogi Temple, as well as partak- 
ing in traditional Japanese activities such as 
Ikebana and the elaborate Tea ceremony. 
Next, a few days in Hiroshima were an op- 
portunity to enjoy the Japanese experience in 
a large city (1.5 million inhabitants). How- 
ever, the visit to the Peace Museum and 
Monument was a sober reminder of the hor- 
ror of the war. The last two days were spent 
in beautiful Kyoto, the capital of medieval 
Japan, and home to the famous Nijyo castle. 
The group was immersed in the pleasures of 
experimenting with Japanese cuisine, absorb- 
ing aspects of local customs and culture, and 
simply enjoying the beauty of nature and our 
colourful surroundings. A truly memorable 
and highly recommended experience.

This year Ashbury College gave fifteen of its stu- 
dents an experience of a lifetime by offering the 
exchange program to Mexico City. I think I speak 
on behalf of all of us when I say that it was "da 
bomb!" Not onlv did we visit the beautiful sites, 
Mexico City had to offer such as the Pyramids of 
Teotihuacah, the Floating Gardens of Xochimiko, 
the Museum of Arthogeology and of course the 
clubs. But we attended the beautiful Westminister 
School during our stay just as the Mexican stu- 
dents had done during their time in Canada. At 
the school, although we attended "some" of the 
classes, we mainly lounged around most of the 
time with the students of the school and came to 
the realization that we are not all that different in 
our views. I believe the three things that we en- 
joyed most during our stay were all the life long 
friends we made, the warm hospitality and gener- 
osity of our host families and of course our week- 
end in ACAPULCO! That was the most memo- 
rable of all: the sun, the beach, the clubs, Planet 
Hollywood, Hard rock Cafe, the latino music, the 
idea of lazing around in a hammock while sipping 
on a strawberry daiquiri, etc. Now we all, who 
werepart of the exchange, have easily 200 reasons 
to go back. On behalf of all of us ( Farah, Chris, Erin, 
Aisha, Greg, Kathy, Sean, AH, Andrew, Maryam, 
Kalessy, Amid, Ben and Mansi) I would like to 
give art enormous thank vou to Mrs. Edwards 
a.k.a. "Mother Edwards" for her to valiant time 
and effort put forth in this exchange. 1 would also 
like to thank Mr. Stojanovic and Mr. Napier. We 
love 'ya all as we love Mexico. (Mansi Kothari)

International Day 

International Day was a huge success. It 
consisted of a mosaic of countries, cultures 
and people. On February 26, 1998 the stu- 
dent body was awe stricken by the many 
dazzling performances of internationalism. 
The day was divided into two sections, a 
show and food booths; 80 students were 
involved. The show contained various per- 
formances such as dances, music, plays, a 
fashion show and a Black History presenta- 
tion. There were 16 different countries which 
put on a delectable symphony for the senses 
for all to enjoy. (Monika Merchea)

Junior Girls Basketball had a spectacular sea- 
son as we exceeded our expectations. Me? 42? 
I'm on? With only one returning player (thanks 
a lot Farah) we made it to the playoffs but 
unfortunately lost in the semi-finals. At the 
beginning of the season, most of us were 
simply acquaintances, but by playoff time we 
played as the best of friends, 1-2-3 BUTCH! 
Thanks to Miss Duggan and Miss Gomme for 
taking time out of their 'busy' schedules to 
help us improve our basketball skills, Rosie's 
cool t-shirts, and Powerbars ® for Animal. 
Good luck to the graduating players, Rosie 
Zollinger and Farah Merani, and wishing the 
best to all returning and new players next 
year. Don't forget to UNLEASH THE BEAST! 
See ya! (Farah Merani)

hi the beginning, there was "Mr. Plow" Chad Hallett and Robin "four 
touchdowns in one game" Wilkinson and a chance for the coveted ( 

Now there are some new names, a new year, and 
a brand-new inspiration . . . 

Some believed that we had become nothing Some believed that v, e would 
never be anything again Some believed that we would not survive the 
"onslaughts* from the other teams. THEY WERE DEAD WRONG! 

Ashburv football '98 was absolute DYNAMITE! We faced other teams as 
the underdogs and i ame out on top . . over the top, if you will. Constant 
practicing made us intowell tuned machines It wasasifourpracticesiwis/ite 
some -erf of switch thai would eo off to turn us into man-imals. Many thought 
that because we bad lost Mr Plow and Wilkinson from the year before, that 
we would be mere puppies in a destruction site, however, thej tailed to 
think about the veterans and the "up and coming" young stallions. They 
tailed to think about the cagev veterans "White Lightning ' Kevin Sullivan 
and "Brown Thunder" John Kambites (Kambeezeez), Alex MANsiouhs, 
Pat/Fat Tremblay, Jamie Clarke, Vijay "18" - GUNS" Pun, RUDY (Allan 
Thomas), and Matt "OW my shoulders" Collette. 

The veterans led the pack of mean-dog-nasty wolves into the fields. 
Ashburv foughl hard with the intension to kick another #@%@S into the 
other team and most of the time that's what we did. We played by Bangkok 
Rules. Although we were the smallest teams in the league, we had the 
biggest hearts and the most talented rookie stallions. At the top of the rookie 
list was Jeremy Ditz (the man who would always get PLAYing time), Dan 
Skananny (you know who you are), and the new quarterback sensation on 
the team'(also a rookie), Tait Simpson. 

The season was tremendous for the Ashbury football team. With a season 
of 5 wins and 1 loss and the #1 ranking in our league, we were defeated in 
the semi-finals and missed our chance to capture the City Championship 
Title (we blame it on the public school strike). The glory, however .was still 
ours. We were the underdog team that had beaten all the odds ... CRY OUT!! 

Ashbury football '98 would like to thank all of the coaches for putting up 
with our wild locker-room shenanigans, and for training us to be all that we 
could be. All the Vets will forever miss the good ol' times. Good luck next 
year boys, and see you in the Sauna (you know what we are talking about 
Ditz)! (Vijay Puri) 

Jr. & Sr. Football 

Our goal at the beginning of the season was to 
have fun, make the playoffs, and win the city 

Our first game was a hard-fought 0-0 tie with 
South Carleton. We then lost our second game 
to St. Matt's, but bounced back with a win 
against St. Peter's. We played St. Peter's again a 
few davs later and came up short, but recovered 
with a 24-7 confidence builder against Philemon 
Wright. It may have built a Tittle too much 
confidence, because we lost to Gloucester in our 
final regular season game. Our season ended 
with a 2-3-1 record and a playoff berth. 

Our season seemed in jeopardy when the 
teacher's strike occurred. But thanks to our 
coaches driving us onward in the snow, sleet 
and rain, we were ready when the season re- 
sumed. Playing at the Minto Field, we beat 6-0 
Confederation 21-14. We squeezedout a victory 
the following week with a soccer-like score of 3- 
1 against St. Matt's. We were now in the city 
championships. On a cold, early morning, we 
started our game against Gloucester well We 
held them to one touchdown until the fourth 
quarter but we couldn't pull it off. Although we 
would rather have won, we proved many people 
wrong by reaching the finals. 

We would like to thank Coach Stableford, Keyes, 
Gillin, Schneider, and L. Murphy forpushing us 
to success. Thanks also go to Mr. Holliday for 
providing us with game films. We would also 
like to thank the fans for their support, and 
finally the players for such an outstanding sea- 
son. Now, Dummy Up! (Aaron Barth and Rich- 
ard Hollidav 


Cross Country Running 

The X-country running team ran away 
with the season and the school's best 
athletes (not to mention the school's 
best coach). We competed first in the 
OBE race. Every member of our largest 
team to date qualified for the National 
Capital Race. At that meet, two of our 
members, Zein Odeh and Hilary Burn, 
qualified for OFSAA. Hilary won the 
National Capital Race. The OFSAA 
meet was the highlight of the season. 
Hilary's fantastic performance in this 
elite race ameliorates Ashbury's stellar 
accomplishments in X-country running 
by winning a third place. We would 
also like to thank our terrific coach Dr. 
Brodsky for all of her hard work. We 
would also like to wish the best of luck 
to our graduating member, Hilary, who 
created the team and is a quintessential 
example of hard work, determination, 
and success. Good luck to next year's 
team! (Ben Barry)

juniors that made my final year an enjoy-

Blake "CP" Burns, Josef "am I on the team" 
Malonzo, Chris "GROW" Montenegrino, 
Alex "you're not part of the joke" Boulos, 
Kartwheel, Alykhan(t), Naddi "the four 
foot wonder" Daudrich, Dan "the four 
toothed wonder" Barbarie, Jacob 
"Pilsbury" Fortier, Omar "someone pay 
attention to me" Sheikh, and last but not 
least, Raj "the heart/star of the team" 
Ruparelia, I don't think they saw your 
hidden talent for the game, maybe next 
year! Huge thanks to coaches D.J. Dunc- 
the-funk and Fuzzy. They helped make the 
year more exciting with their made up on 
the spot drills. They worked because we 
made it to the semi-finals against St. Pats. 
The result doesn't matter, it's the fact that 
we got there that's important (we lost 3-2). 
As the season went on it got colder and 
then the strike began postponing our sea- 
son a few weeks. Eventually the semi- 
finals were played in a foot of snow and 
cold weather. Congratulations to all the 
juniors and thanks to Rev. Fulton (sorry 
about the dinner) and everyone who helped 
us. (Jon Petridis)

Sr. Boys' Soccer 

Another solid season is finally behind the 
players of Ashbury's Sr. Soccer team. 1997 
was a year of great heart and tremendous 
progress by everyone. As I look back on it, 
I can't say the team ever stopped trying or 
was ever out of contention. On the field, 
we were one of the strongest teams ever, 
but a few unlucky breaks just hurt our 
result in the end. The team strengthened 
by the new acquisition of Dave Carr-Har- 
ris and led by Victor's non-stop effort on 
offense and Chris' solid defense helped 
propel us to a new level of playing success. 
I can't begin to express the thanks that 
Mark Hern deserves after another season 
of loyal support and great coaching. Most 
of our achievements were the result of his 
unending determination to get the most 
out of us. With his help, we were ready to 
play every game and easily survived the 
two weeks that our season was postponed 
because of the strike. 

Overall, the team had another strong finish 
during the regular season, ending it in 
second place. Unfortunately, we were 
knocked from the playoffs in the semi's 
after the OBE's disorganization saw sev- 
eral players miss the last game. We also 
played well at the Independent School's 
Tournament in Montreal, finishing fifth 
after a great shootout and a couple of very 
close games. I'll never forget the Mexican 
Connection, Red Guard, Pro-Star, Spunky 
Hip-Hop, Penetrator, that inspirational 
tape, super sexe, the bananas, Shebupu, 
that Alumni game, and that night in 
Montreal when Gus disappeared. Special 
thanks to Mr. Gray, Duncan, Seb, E.C., J.V- 
P, C.L., R.S., and everyone else who showed 
up and supported us. Victor and I wish the 
best to all players, and good luck for next 
season! (Dan Thomson)

Sr. Boys' Basketball f* 

The Sr. basketball team had a phenomenal finish to an otherwise mediocre season. Well 
maybe not phenomenal but still decent nonetheless. Our team was always competitive, 
never losing to anyone by more then 10 points and we even beat some excellent teams as 
well. Definitely the highlight was the team beating #3 ranked Louis Riel for the title of AA 
city champs. Basking in the glory of our greatness we ended up getting an early march break 
vacation and headed to Peterborough to play in the OFSAA AA tournament, where we 
finished 10th out of 16 teams (give or take a couple spots). Ok . . . time for the cliche! I'd like 
to thank the coaches Mr. Sparks, Mr. Holman, and Hugh Bell for the time they spent with 
us trying to make us a better team. Thanks to the graduating players Baxter and Bethune for 
their service and dedication to the team year after year. Well that's about it, unfortunately 
there still seem to be a few questions that are still keeping me sleepless. For instance, I still 
can't figure out why the girls V-ball team got ten times as many fans as we did. Hmmm 
. . . maybe Baxter was right, the team should have invested in some spandex. (Nick Seppala)

Jr. Boys' Basketball 

The Junior Boys' Basketball team had one of its best seasons 
in recent year's. The team was 9-0 in tournaments, winning 
both the Ashbury College and Colonel By Invitational tour- 
naments. We beat St. Matthew's for the first time during the 
Colonel By Tournament. The regular season (9-4) was capped 
off with a loss in the Ottawa Board Final, so we came second 
in the league. We won more than 5 games by 20 points or 
more each, and were 1-1 in the playoffs. Much luck to Mr. 
Gray and next year's team. Thanks to all the fans that came 
out to our games and supported us. Respect to "Mr. Funny" 
for attempting THE DUNK! (Eric Johnson)

Coming off a 1-9 season the previous year, the 
Senior Girls Volleyball Team did not know what to 
expect this season. After a home defeat at the hands 
of perennial powerhouse Samuel Genest the team 
made fine progress posting 3-0 wins over arch rivals 
Glebe, Lisgar and Immaculata as well as solid 
postings over Brookfield and Canterbury. Only 
Nepean and Sammy G stood in our way as Ashbury 
finished third in Tier 1 . Playoffs saw us defeat Lisgar 
3-0 in the quarters and then an agonizing 3-2 loss to 
Nepean, a team that had lost only one set up to that 
point in league play. Later that week we defeated 
Cairine Wilson in the NCSSAA championship 10- 
15, 15-8, 13-15, 15-2, 16-14 in front of a packed house 
at Carleton University. Everyone who was there 
will remember game 5, 14-12! 

The team travelled to the OFSA A championships in 
Chatham where we put a scare into the home team 
and number one seed Chatham-Kent by losing 15-8 
16-14, the narrowest margin of victory the eventual 
gold medallist would have all championships. Al- 
though we did not pick up any hardware it was a 
great end to a seaseon full of memories . . . Kelly's 
pancake, Katie's jump serves, Jess and her dino- 
saurs, the "middles", Dirty Dancing with Patrick 
and notes and quotes from Mr. Parsons. Bye to the 
grads, we'll miss you! (Mr. Miedema)

This year the junior girls' volleyball team 
had a great season with a lot of fun and a 
little work (the four corner drill). We won 
the majority of our games. 
Although the team started as a fairly inex- 
perienced one, we soon developed the 
skills required to work well together. We 
made some bad calls (it's out, it's out . . 
oops), but always played enthusiastically 
even during tough matches. 
Finally, we owe a great thanks to netted 
mechanism, Tamagotchi, strange smells, 
and, of course, our excellent, upbeat 
coaches Mrs. Holman and Ms. Gomme. 
Good luck to next year's team. (Kalessy 


In the words of the immortal Dr. 
John "Hosekneeack" Connelly, 
"Get tough in the corners and put 
the puck in the net. " Great advice 
from a great Canadian, however, 
this year's hockey squad didn't 
listen to the Doctor. Things we 
did do, incidently, included going 
to Toronto and paying $5 for a 
jigger of O.J., and watching a 
convincing 11-2 win over 2nd 
place Glebe in the final game of 
the year. We were pleased with 
our performance in this final 
game and we decided to verbalize 
our excitement with statements 
like "Look at the scoreboard Glebe 
chumps!" They responded with 
short responses accompanied by 
"Good work Ashbury, we'll see 
you at the playoffs ... Oh right, 
we won't - you finished last in 
your division." Even though our 
results were less than stellar, 
every player still managed to have 
fun in our games and three 
practices. The contact tournament 
in Toronto was an added bonus. 
Perhaps we would have faired 
better if we had fewer team 
meetings in the hotel sauna. Those 
meetings, however, were Mr. 
Keyes' and Mr. Schneider's 
fondest memories of the trip. 
Thanks to these two fine coaches 
for their guidance and sense of 
humour throughout the season. 
It was greatly appreciated. Good 
luck to the team next year and all 
graduating players. HIO!

The Ashbury Curling team had its 
most successful year in recent memory, 
obviously due to the presence of 
numerous veterans (people who had 
already curled before the season 
started) and to the hours and hours of 
unwaveringly intense training, both 
on and off the ice. 

Good fortune was with us this season. 
Not only did we avoid any personnel 
losses due to injury, but, by the end of 
the season, our record was rather 
impressive: we had captured three 
victories, all hard fought battles (well, 
two of them were by default, but 
nevertheless) and had minimized the 
number of incidents of inter and intra- 
team violence. 

Although mocked on the last day of 
the regular season by other teams 
saying: "So, are we going to see you in 
the playoffs?", the team managed to 
maintain its composure and uphold it 
reputation of good sportsmanship. 
The brightest point of the season would 
be, without question ... the end-of- 
year pizza party. But in a close second 
place, during one of our last games, for 
the first time in modern history, we 
had tworeal fans, Neil R. and Chris K., 
came out to cheer us on. They too were 
mocking us by the end of the game, but 
it really was the thought that counted, 
and all our hearts were warmed by 
their actions. 

Kudos to graduating players (Ryan, 
Jordan, and myself), good luck to those 
moving up from recreational to 
"competitive", and an extra special 
thank you to our coach and mentor, 
Mr. Wearring, for his patience and his 
ability to pretend not to be embarrassed 
by our performances on the ice.

The ski team rebounded from a disappointing 
season last year, to capture a box full of medals in 
1998. This is most certainly due to the strict dryland 
training sessions enforced by coach Featherstone. 
With the help of these sessions and constant 
monitoring by our coach, the Level 1, 2 and 3 skiers 
were able to enter the NCAS Championships with 
a level of confidence and enthusiasm second to 
none (other than the teams that beat us). The event 
was held at Edelweiss Valley on Feb. 16 and 17 with 
the Giant Slalom the first day and the Slalom on the 
second day of the competition. In our Level 3 
category, Caroline Anderson showed the field how 
it was done, winning the GS by a considerable 
margin and bringing home the gold. She did an 
excellent job on the second day of racing when she 
demonstrated the how-to's of painful and 
spectacular wipe-outs while racing. In the same 
category, Bill MacEwen took the Bronze in the 
Slalom. Our other categories placed extremely well 
much to everyone's surprise. The Boys Level 2 and 
Girls Level 1 both won bronze medals in GS and 
Slalom and the Level 1 Boys took the bronze in the 
GS. Best of luck to all those graduating and special 
thanks to Mrs. Featherstone for all her time and 
hard work this season! (Bryan Estabrooks and Billy

The baseball team made the move to Tier 1 
team. Our (new look) was complemented by 
new uniforms, including pants that Mr. Coles 
said "fit really well". Needless to say, neither 
coach wore their team pants for the rest of the 
season. Our defensive play was unimpressive 
attimes and wedesperately lacked consistency 
at the plate. Some players, however, had a 
knack for sparking team offense. ShawTi, for 
example, was a pillar of strength and of clutch- 
hitting for the fourth year in a row. Thanks to 
stellar pitching fromjordie (who wall represent 
Ontariointheunderl8 category this summer), 
Jamie and Chris, we were able to win some big 
games, but unfortunately bowed out 3-1 in the 
first round to the eventual city champions, 
Louis Riel. Thanks to our fearless leaders, Mr. 
Coles and Mr. Moore, and to all of our 

Saduating players, Mart B., Dan T., Shawn, 
an B., Jamie and Matt S.. Good luck to the 
team in 1999! (Matthew Scuby and Coach A. 


Jr. Boys' 

This was another eventful and successful season for the 
Junior boys rugby team. The season opened up with two 
home exhibition games against Assumption School. 
They were good, but we were better - bea ting them both 
times. The team traveled away from "home base" this 
year. Our first stop was Albert College in Belleville, 
where we won easily. We kept our unbeaten record until 
we moved on to face Trinity College in Port Hope. 
Teammates will remember the South African player 
who taught us a thing or two! The regular season opened 
well. We were undefeated until we met our old rivals, 
the Brookfield Blues. Once again they beat us 10-5 in a 
close game, our only loss of the regular season. Now it 
was on to the playoffs. The semi-final game versus 
Nepean was a close game, but we were victorious even 
though both team MVPs suffered injuries. The City Final 
played against Hillcrest was tough, but we came out on 
top 24-1 2 and were crowned City Champs for the second 
year in a row. Like last year we then played in the 
National Capital Final. Unlike last year, we won, bea ting 
a very strong team from St. Peter's 7-5. Matt Ryan scored 
the game try with a dummy scissors move in front of the 
posts and then Chris Napoli kicked the conversion to 
put us ahead with just over 10 minutes remaining in the 
game. Every player agrees that our successes could not 
have been possible without our great coaches. Once 
again, on behalf of the team, I would like to thank Mr. 
Schneider, Darcy Walsh, and Mr. Trites for their time 
and patience. I would also like to thank all my teammates 
and especially the 18 graduating players for their 
commitment to Ashbury rugby. Good luck next season 
to all of the returning players and the new recruits. High

This was definitely our most successful 
season in recent years. From the beginning 
of April to the end of May, thirty-three 
players gave everything thev had to rugby. 
Highlights included the Stanstead and 
Sydenham trips, and several victories after 
being down at half time. The team played 
a total of 16 games in just less than 6 weeks. 
With such a busy schedule, there were 
many injuries in key positions. Fortunately, 
we had enough depth to carry us through 
to the semi finals. It was a heartbreaking 
loss to a tough team. We couldn't have had 
a better group of players that worked so 
well together. Congratulations and good 
luck to all of the graduating players. We 
are all looking forward to next year!

Five years ago, the Ashbury track team 
took a cab to theOttawa High School Track 
& Field Championships. This year, 53 of 
our best throwers, jumpers and runners 
took over the meet and placed an amazing 
3rd as a school. Most notably, the team 
fielded seven different relay teams who all 
medaled. Three-quarters of the team all 
returned for the National Capital meet. 
Several athletes had great performances 
and coaches. Ms. Duggan and M rs. Holman 
took four athletes down to the Eastern 
Ontario Regional Championships in 
Kingston. Dan "the Barbanan" Barbarie, 
Hilary Bum and Zein Odeh then traveled

This year, the team had a great start considering the looming strike 
that Fiung over the fall term. We managed to pull a 4th place in our 
league w'hich was amazing considering the size of our team which 
continued to diminish as the season went on. It was a team where 
there was a common bond that held us together. The friendships that 
we made along the way were vital to me. When we won, we won as 
a team and when we lost, we lost as a team. I would like to thank the 
graduating players: Chris - in my eyes you were the captain, Dan - 
maybe we can get the rotation right next time, Alex - Russians rock. 
For some players that won't be returning: Thomas - have you 
considered the German National team?, Ryan - the whole team 
missed you. The team was young and inexperienced but Mr.

Investor's Club 

The 1997/ 1 998 school year saw many changes in 
the Investor's Club. For the first time since its 
inception, the club was run by a group of dedi- 
cated students who formed the Executive Com- 
mittee of the Investor's Club. The students con- 
sisted of Winston Bennett, Bridget Adrian, An- 
drew Nicholson and Andrew Magnus. Mrs. 
Hergert remained an integral part of the club as 
our staff advisor. While some of least year's stock 
picks proved to be less than profitable, all of this 
year's choices have earned respectable returns. 
Our choices for this year were Yogen Fruz, 
Loblaws and Unihost. The first two are well- 
known food distributors and the latter is a resort 
operator, whose assets include the Journey's End 
chain. Over the course of the year, we invited 
three guest speakers to aid our learning of the 
world of investing. Mr. David Smith, Ms. Eliza- 
beth MacLean, and Mr. Robert H. Orange all 
delivered stimulating lunch-hour seminars. Over- 
all, the year turned out to be a great success as we

Science Team 

The Ashbury Science Team began to break through new frontiers 
this year, pushing science to both its educational and recreational 
limits. The crew was anchored by a slew of dedicated junior 
students, determined not only to learn, but also to prove that 
science can be an incredible extra-curricular activity. 
Our first important event was the celebration of National Science 
and Technology week, for which a variety of events were organized 
for junior school students. From jeopardy to drinking straw canti- 
levers, the juniors amazed us all with their bright smiles, innovative 
spirit and genuine competitive interest in doing the best that they 

Following this, a long period of preparation began for the annual 
Science Olympics, held at the Museum of Science and Technology, 
and sponsored this year by the University of Ottawa. Our team set 
out in 5 events: the spaghetti bridge competition, the drinking- 
straw cantilever contest, the bionic arm battle, the fun machine 
venture, and the audio-visual presentation challenge. We came out 
of the event with a plethora of top five finishes, although, sadly, 
none in the top three. What was the most wonderful about the day 
was the imaginative and resourceful display put on so brilliantly by 
many of the competitors, both from Ashbury and the other con- 
tending schools (I hesitate to call the opponents, or even competi- 
tors: the whole event was really about pushing forward the fron- 
tiers of the application of the imagination to the concrete world, not 
about who came first, second and third!) 

All that can be said about the 1997-1998 Science Team season is that 
it was a whole lot of fun, and a whole lot of learning. Many thanks 
to all the faculty advisors, and, most importantly, to Coach Wearring 
for his steady, confident (and very patient!) leadership. Without 
their enthusiasm, none of it would ever have been possible! Good 
luck next year, Science Team! (Aaron Meyers) 


Certificates of distinction were awarded to 35 of the 124 
students who participated in the Canadian Mathematics 
Competitions. These students finished in the top 25% of all 
participants across Canada. Special recognition goes to Sae 
Park who tied for 6th place out of 36,275 students who wrote 
the Cayley contest in Canada. Certificates of distinction were 
won by Anthony Delvecchio, SuEun Heo, Bikalpa Khatiwada 
and Chris Kergin in the American High School Mathematics 
Examination (AHSME). In the American Invitational Math- 
ematics Examination (AIME), certificates of merit were pre- 
sented to SuEun Heo and Anthony Delvecchio. SuEun Heo, 
Aaron Meyers, Bikalpa Khatiwada, Young Fan and Philip 
Francis were awarded certificates of merit in the Canadian 
National Mathematics League. In the Canadian Open Math- 
ematics Challenge, certificates of distinction were awarded 
to SuEun Heo, Anthony Delvecchio, Malik Amir, Allan Dafoe, 
Chris Kergin, Aaron Meyers and Bikalpa Khatiwada. 

Congratulations to all of the students who participated in the 
various contests held throughout the year. (Head of Math- 
ematics, W.E. Stableford)

Outdoor Education 

Well, we've managed to have another 
safe and "successful" year. Thanks to, 
mastering ancient Ashbury anti-rain 
dances.all of the trips in the fall were 
able to remain dry. Unfortunately, 
the dances do not work for American 
rain gods who snowed on the leaders' 
hike and rained on the gold hike. Al- 
though the ice storm eleminated the 
prospect of having Winter Survival 
and Night Navigation trips, us coun- 
try folk were given ample opportu- 
nity to do these on our own. There are 
two and two-fifths student leaders 
graduating this year. Neil, Chris (who 
forgot to come on any trips in grades 
11,12, and 13), and myself. We will go 
on wearing our Goke-Tex® through 
rain and snow, never leaving home 
without somebody else's rope, and 
continue to climb bigger, tougher, and 
more goat-like mountains. Good luck 
to those who will continue on and 
make sure you are always ready to 
catch the Aerobie. (Jordan)

Although the class changes with the different seasons 
there is emerging a hard core group of Tae-kwon-Do 
enthusiasts. Whatever the reasons for our enthusiasm 
our bodies are learning all about flexibility and bal- 
ance As well as fitness the class involves various self 
defense techniques, learning the prescribed movements 
and patterns, and meditation exercises. Many of us are 
progressing through the belts and some of the students 
have progressed as far as the green stripe. Congratula- 
tions are extended to our instructor, Aron Chaney, 
presently a grade 1 2 student at the school who received 
his black belt second dan. this year. (R. Zettel)

of course Dan". (Jyoti Aggarwal, Shepherd's of Good Hope) 
TEAM #3 "The Rockliffe Park Public School's 'homework club'

English Debating 

Debating had a loud and strong year, with 
many firsts in numerous areas and activities. 
We became a member of the renowned Fulford 
League, a debating organisation of indepen- 
dent schools. We also expanded into the Junior 
School, with much success, sending delegates 
to the Junior Provincials and Nationals. The 
World Affairs Conference was also attended 
by our members, showing an increased aware- 
ness of the role of youths in the world. We 
participated and returned victorious in debates 
at the Toronto French School. We also attended 
the International Independent Schools Public 
Speaking Competition in Montreal. Some de- 
baters traveled to the Forum for Young Cana- 
dians. The Ashbury debating society was ac- 
tive on a more local level, hosting the Ottawa 
Regionals, and the Inter-House debates in which 
Alexander house triumphed at the senior level, 
and Connaught house winning it at the junior 
level. Congratulations are in order for those 
who received awards in the events, namely 
Benjamin Barry, Allan Dafoe, Ryan Davies, 
Andrew Magnus, Kevin Massie, Emily 
Mawhinney, Tony Navaneelan, and Jason 
Richards. The society would like to thank Ms. 
Sinclair and Ms. Hergert for their support and 
coaching this year. Our graduating members 
are Caroline Chan and Kevin Massie, who have 
given so much time and dedication to the soci- 
ety. (Jonathan So and Benjamin Barry) 

French and Bilingual Debating 

Cette annee, malheureusement, le debut de 
notre programme de debat a ete assez dur. 
Dans la region, il y avait une greve dans le 
secteur public, suivie d'une tempete de verglas 
et, f inalement, l'absence imprevue et prolongee 
de 1'entraineur, Monsieur Stojanovic, n'a 
surement pas aide a la preparation des 
etudiant(e)s. Nos etudiant(e)s ont, malgre tout, 
demontre de l'enthousiasme et Malik Amir et 
Kouka Sawadogo-Lewis ont pris l'initiative et 
se sont presentes au Tournoi Regional des 
debats francais. Du cote bilingue, on avait Hilary 
Burn, Joseph Mouiakel, Zein Odeh et Andrew 
Magnus qui ont defendu la tradition 
prestigieuse d'Ashbury lors du Tournoi 
Regional des debats bilingues. Hilary Burn 
s'est classee parmi les trois meilleures orateurs 
de la region et elle est allee au Seminaire 
provincial a Sudbury ou elle s'est meritee la 
troisieme place. Le plus important est que nos 
etudiants ne se sont pas laisse decourager par 
certains evenements imprevus et qu'ils ont 
consacre de nouveau beaucoup d'energie et de 
temps libre pour exercer ce "sport vocal". 
Felicitations et merci a tous et a toutes! (Dejan

know it is Shubhra. or Shubs, as

This 5'4" South Asia beauty is a 
wonderful blend of fun. mischief, 
wisdom, and sarcasm. She works 
hard to excel in her studies and 

surprisingly enough get there!!

Listen carefully 

Ashburians, what is the 
most important thing for 
you? Probably not study- 
ing hard right. You are 
wrong. Everybody should 
be working hard, be suc- 
cessful at school, and for 
the rest of your life. Don't 
sit back and relax, be ac- 
tive, and try reaching your 
highest goals. It only takes 
perseverence, and hard 
work. I know you can do it. 
Good luck.

I can't believe I'm going to be fin- 
ished high school forever. It seemed 
to take so long when I was but a 
minor niner, but now that I look 
back on my years at Ashbury, 
(seven in total), I realize how 
quickly it went. I don't think I 
would have survived without some 
friends who have been so support- 
ive and entertaining. B.V., DM., 
N.M., Tony Macaroni, GUY., D.B. 
the senior football team and the 
baseball team, and anyone whom I 
missed. Some of the teachers I need 
to thank, Mr. Varley, Mr Coles, Mr. 
Gray, Mr. MacFarlane, and Mr. 
Penton. Special thanks to mom 
and dad. 

Remember, always be yourself and 
don't let anyone stand in the way 
of your dreams.

thank for not ostracizing me be- 
cause of the antennas, long tail. 
and hard exoskeleton which 
make me different. Specifically, 
thanks to the people in all my 
classes and more importantly 
those who helped make the mo- 
ments in between great. 1 don't 
want to leave anyone out, so "You 
know who you are". Super 
thanks to those who shared some

Three years three years in 

Ashbury, how was it?.. ..I'd say time 
well spent! Memories of good times 
and bad times were flashing in front 

of my eyes I don't know about 

you, but I definitely had a great 
time at Ashbury. First day of 
school., 'why do I have to come to 
school 30 min. early and sit in a 
class room doing nothing V.' ... first 
swim meet. .'who's that geek in a 
speedo ??'.. first semi- 

formal. .'couldn't the people just 
spread out V.' ... first day out taking 
picture...' why's that guy looking 
thru a water bottle ?? 
whatareulookingat ?'. There are too 

many things to mention but I 

must thank all the teachers and 
friends for their support over the 

past three years Mr. Coles, Mr. 

Miedema, Mr. Wearring, Mrs. 

Ford Neil, Jen P., Roland (when 

are you going to have another party

It all began in the year 1993, 
when 1 walked through the 
wooden doors of Ashbury. All 
that I have experienced will 
soon become memories. 
Thanks to all those special 
friends who have made my stay 
at Ashbury more 

enjoyable. ..especially AH S., 
Biku, Nadia L., Robin H., 
Gabriela S., Alex A. and 
Brendan L... 

Eso es para todas las estrellas, 
Victor ('naranjas'), Jorge ('Aus- 
tin'), Ricardo ('rico suave'), 
Fernando ('don juan'), Ivan ('el 
zorro')y Gustavo ('chamaco')... 
Thank you to all the teachers 
who have taught through the 
years that hard work and dedi- 
cation pays off... I am off to 
University. ..***el lobo 

Cheers to Jamie. C and Ben.V (some- 
day you will realize that us Brits 
are superior, until then I will pray 
for you) and Dan.B, for being such 
a Dan. Also, thanks to those I got 
along with (or so I think). That 
being FEW, FV (don't forget our 
World Cup bet), CH, Mr Penton 
and all me mates outside of this 
school (please play nice). If I forgot 
anyone then you probably weren't 
important enough. I hope every- 
one mentioned here succeeds and 
the rest all fail miserably. 

And finally, just to shut you up... 
"soccer" (although do not assume 
that this means I have said this 
dirty word). 

Just remember that ambition makes 
you look pretty ugly (TY) and hy- 
ing is the first step to failing (HS).

Seven years of Ashbury to sum- 
marize in eight hundred char- 
acters . . . Instead of going 
through the multitude of 
memories (from fun machines 
and plaster of Paris to Rec 
Hockey and oral presentations 
and the Blazer to Cancun and 
everything in between) and 
inside jokes acquired over that 
time, and trying to mention all 
of them while respecting the 
character limit, I would like to 
give my thanks to three groups 
of people. My teachers, for 
teaching me how to think, and 
occasionally making the pro- 
cess fun, my family, for your 
support and understanding, 
and my friends, for making all 
of it fun and memorable. 

I'm writing this one month before 
the year finishes up and I feel that 
Ashbury is a great school. I was 
already graduated from where I 
come from. Mexico, and suppos- 
edly I came here just to learn En- 
glish, but I learned so much more, 
and I feel glad to be a graduate of 
Ashbury College. I'd like to thank 
everyone who taught me some- 
thing in one way or another. I'll 
never forget this year because it 
has been so special. My advice is 
to take advantage of the huge num- 
ber of opportunities that Ashbury 
offers. Thank you.

Things I have learnt at Ashbury: 
Boarding is a whole different ball 
game, stress is the ultimate theme 
at Ashbury, Rugby is the only real 
sport and always rage against the 
system. There is more to the five 
years that I have spent here though: 
Frieday Girls, the spirit lives on 
forever. Dylan take care and be 
good! Sylvie da best, Dominican 
forever,' "Raise the Roof". Katie, 
you're nuts, but you know how to 

Barry and make me laugh, love ya! 
'evon, nobody compares. 
Amanda, after prep friend and 
chillin' buddy, I love you, I'll al-

I think of you. Becky, my adven- 
ture buddy, never say never. Sean, 
Rob, Eric be good! Amy, just do it! 
Angela, to many memories, we

we made it. Be proud, it only hap- 
pens once, I love ya and I'll miss ya.

boys, memories of Lake Louise 
and going 'out of bounds'. Ryan 
stay a way from the cider. Vij keep

Halloween, 1979 

Sleep comes to no one else like we 
have falling through the ground. 
Fulfilling promises of endless sum- 
mer nights, I'm losing ground, 
you're losing sound. Somewhere 
through a thousand blues a drag- 
onfly descends with just a whisper 
- I'm lonelier than God. And all mv 
wishes spin the fishes in the air and 
everyone a different shade of you. 
And to the left where up is down 
there stands a zebra made of shapes 
of me it's silver and the sun. So 
bring no guilt with you up above 
the flat-line, lets just hit the sky 
exploding into one. ..-Hum 
To all of You who have shown me 
the way, Let's hit the sky exploding 
into one...(IM,NMJKR,KJ-of

Ya he terminado? Como MOLA!!! 
These last two years at Ashburv 
were wicked. Who could imagine 
that being Spanish, I would gradu- 
ate in Canada? The point is that I 
finished something that I've done 
everywhere in the world and's 
lasted 12 years!! I, nevertheless, 
wished I was done studying but I 
am at the beginning of a new era 
(again)... The only thing I've left to 
do is thank my parents, Fernando 
and Rocio, for all they've done for 
me. Maria, hermanita,buena suerte 
el ano que viene, sin tu hermano 
para protejerte! A few sentences 
that marked my years at Ashburv: 
-Vamos a olviaar! -Bare, Bare. - El 
Parlamento.- Vine, did u revise? - 
Montreal 1 y '2' (la Saga continua) 
- Feliz ano nuevo! - San Valentin - 
Viva Espana! I'd like to thank all

(photo courtesy of Patrick Doyle, The Ottawa Citizen, May 3, 1998, p. A2); Mild-mannered Canadian causes 
a ruckus on the international scene. Our home-grown hero, Ross Rebagliatti showed the world that Canadians 
can snowboard and nothing can stop us from taking home thegold.noteven marijuana (photocourtesy of Rick 
Lau,; A winter wonderland during the 1998 ice

Glaming it up'for thefirad, Ashburv girls got top billing for their fashion sense (photo courtesy of Julie Oliver, 
The Ottawa Citizen, June 18, 1998, p.F3); Diana will forever be remembered as the Queen of Hearts. Even 
amidst the controversy, we never lost sight of her and the good that she did. 


What a year it 
has been!!! 
1997-1998 will 
definitely go 
down in the 
history books. 
We watched 
the whole 
world go into 
mourning at 
the deaths of 
Princess Diana 
and Mother 
Theresa, and 
questioned the 
role of the 
media in our 
ives. The Clinton sex scandal shook the 
establishment and fueled the jokes of late-night 
talk-show hosts. The postal strike gave us an 
excuse for why our Christmas cards were so late 
in their arrivals. We went to school while our 
public school friends stayed home because of the 
two-week-long, Province-wide teachers' strike. 
Ice storm '98 (the "Storm of the Millennium") 
showed us that Mother Nature was still the boss, 
but it also taught us that as a community we could 
come together in a time of need. Ashburv trees 
were first ravaged by a huge rain storm in the fall, 
then by the ice storm'in January - the Grad gift was 
a bunch of trees for the front lawn. El Nino ravaged 
the planet with a year of the weirdest weather 
anyone will ever see. It also became the scapegoat 
for just about anything. On the sports front, the 
Ottawa Senators made it to the semi-finals, 
showing the NHL they were a power to contend 
with. We were all glued to our TV screens for the 
1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan - our 
hearts soared with Elvis Stoiko as he performed 
his triple- triple, and sank as he limped off the ice. 
The buzz of The World Cup of Soccer, France '98, 
brought us out in droves. Viagra was introduced 
-we're still not sure if it works, but there are things 
going bump in the night. The Canadian dollar has 
seen better days and the Asian Flu has hit the 
world economy. Steps are finally being made to 
bring peace in Ireland with a referendum pushing 
for changes. All in all, it has been a year to 
remember. Good luck to all in your future 
endeavors. (Caroline Chan)

Yearbook Staff 

Another yearbook laid to rest, finally. It's after graduation, and a few brave 
souls have braved the halls of Ashbury to finish off the Ashburian. To all who 
helped out with photos, layout, write-ups and other various things, thank you. 
Thanks especially to Mrs. Ford, Mrs. Rust, Neil, Brendan, Caroline, Pam, Biku, 
Ali, Phil, Jon, Kim, Matt L., Kelly C, Young, Kelly F., Julia, Thomas, Bridget, 
Rebecca, Monika, Kerry and Jessie (in no particular order) and anyone else 
we've forgotten. We met all our deadlines, sort of, and didn't have to stay too 
late on too many occasions. When you glance through this book, you will 
hopefully notice the many horizontal eyelines and dominant elements that 
gave so many headaches and other pains. Hopefully you will appreciate the 
many hours of hard work and diligent efforts put into crafting a lasting 
memory of the year 1997-98. It's been fun, if a little hectic. (Jennifer Polk)

What makes Ashbury a good school. \ 


The thing that makes Ashbury a better school is Friday night skiing.

The thing that makes Ashbury a good school is "The Lounge". - Stephen So 
The fact that we aren't allowed into vendo-land, yet everyone always goes! (I'n 

not implying that I go he, he, he, he ....). - Ryan MacLean.

The wisdom of Lahey of Polk and of Booth 
Exhorts me this year to be clever 
To write this missive with a collective of nouns 
And to that end shall I pen my endeavour 

- P.H. Montgomery 


We know that a group is made of ones who muster 
Then gain intricate names as soon as they cluster — 
Like watches of birds though not nearly so strange 
As troops of kangaroos hopping Aussie's wide range. 

But turn to the scared - an exhaltation of larks 
To crows who in a murder profane our fine parks. 

A litter of piglets, a pod of seals, turtles in a bale: 

Shall we tie them with a string of ponies, set them out in a sale? 

Pride, all but the lions know, is commonly counted a sin — 

A plague of locusts on your house, should you let such vices in. 

What can we learn from animal terms, against which you may readily 


From teams of horses, a clutter of cats or from coveys of partridge and 


The words are stuck like a knot of toads to tell me who 1 might be. 

How should I live, travel, or stay close to home, like ants in a colony? 

Am I just part of a swarm or a clan 
Mere member of some coterie? 
Or perhaps, perhaps am I a man 
Alone, myself, silly me? 


Yearbook staff 

Year three. We're finally geting the 

hang of it. This year we were able 

to cull a wonderful yearbook staff 

from our grade 8 population, and 

to coerce Mrs. Booth into joining 

the team. Our core team is 

pictured at left. Andrew Robertson 

(thanks for all the write ups), 

Lucas Wood, who also designed 

the cover of the Junior Ashburian, 

Aaron Slade, who liked to write 

captions, and Matthew Runnalls 

who, midway through the year, 

discovered the existence of clip 

art. Missing from the picture are 

Stuart Gray (a great typist) and 

Peter Fujarczuk our inker. Many 

thanks also to all the students who 

contributed their art work and 

creative writing. Also, to the 

faculty who helped with write ups 

and photos. Without all this help 

we would not have been able to 

produce this book. L.L. and D.C.P.

. . . to Across the Continent. 

This year Ashbury was invited to participate 
13 Basketball Tournament. The tournament 
was hosted by Glenlyon Norfolk School in 
Victoria, B.C. and took place from Thursday, 
February 12 to Saturday, February 14, 1998. 
The team, accompanied by Coach Street 
and Mr. Storosko left Ottawa on Tuesday, 
February 10 and returned on Sunday, 
February 15. 

The purpose of the trip was basketball, but 
we did some touring and saw some 
interesting sights as well. The players were 
billeted by St. George's School in Vancouver 
and also in Victoria by our host school. One 
parentbilletedtenofourplayers and another 
billeted two of our players plus an entire 
other team. Never in my experience as a 
coach have I seen such dedication from 
billeting parents. Many positive reports 
were received from different sources 
commenting on the behavior of our team. 
The boys represented the school with 
courtesy and pride. 

On the basketball court we had our share of 
success despite the fact that many of the 
players were suffering from symptoms of 
colds or flu. We earned victories over 
Collingwood, Glenlyon Norfolk and St. 
Andrew's and suffered losses to Royal St. 
George's and the eventual champions from 
Upper Canada. These results were good 
enough for us to place fifth out of twelve 

All in all it was a most enjoyable trip.

"Cuthbert the Dragon" followed by Lee Piazza (bottom left) and David Matyas (bottom right). Other participants included Om; 
Alsaffar, Matthew Brown, Ross Franklin (pictured), Ian Rutherford, Ted Houston and Nick Paget (not shown). Thank you to Mr. Ri 
Parsons from the Senior School for adjudicating and to all the participants for their well executed renditions. 



ome Say Ice. 

Ballad of '98 

The enormous weight of the ice on the trees, 

left the work) in much peril from wet winter 


Eighty millimeters of rain would eventually fall 

By the end all the trees would not be so tall. 

They snapped and they snagged onto wire below 

under great pressure from ice and from snow 

The wake of the storm had vet to be seen 

for this raging storm woulcf soon turn fierce and 


Birches and cedars would soon start to fold 
even though they were strong and enormously old 
The rains kept on coming for numerous days 
and the storm just kept worsening in so many 

The damage so massive in back vard and street 
and there was a sad face on all that you'd meet. 
Gone were the trees we had long watched to grow 
destroyed by the hideous ice and the snow. 

The face of the countryside was not left alone, 
The sight of the damage would chill to the bone. 
Heard were the sounds of the deafening booms 
As the trees were exploding on their hillside 

Thirty times their own weight was the ice on the 


The sound of their falling would shiver your knees 

Even the evergreens were covered with ice, 

and the storm left no shelter for raccoons or mice. 

So all of the evergreens turned glassy white, 
and many cried out at this horrible sight. 
The birches were cracking - falling in place 
Soon all that was left was wide open space. 

The battle was raging for the trees to survive, 
for they had to be strong to come out alive 
But in time we all know that the trees will succeed, 
for a ray of bright sun is all that they need 


Icicles handing off the roof late at night 

The moon light shining makes them twinkle so 


gleaming like stars, the ice so pretty hanging there. 

Suddenly the wind blows them off one by one 

falling like trees in the forest 

onto the ground and shattering like glass. 

The Storm 

The branches bow down to the mighty storm 
the streets are covered with ice 
on the ground power lines lie, torn 
The city is locked in a bitter cold vice 

Glass storm 

Each leaf, each branch, 
each blade of grass - 
seems to be coated in 
a sheath of glass 

The beautiful ice 
once all is said 
can be quite as heavy 
as a coating of lead 

The branches crackle, 
snap crash and roar 
as they topple to 
the ice covered floor 

The city cries out 
in utter dismay 
as the ice storm causes 
such total disarray 

We start with a snippet from 

Robert Frost.

Much ado about nothing 


Numbers have always fascinated me. My favorite number, believe it or not, is 
zero. Now, I don't want to get this number in a test of or a speech contest - it 
would be disastrous. The number zero has infinite possibilities. It has an 
intriguing past and a fathomless future. 

To say that zero is nothing, zip, zilch is a fatal mistake. Without this funda- 
mental number, there would be no mathematics, no science and no comput- 
ers. So let's start at the very beginning. How was zero invented? 

Our pre-historic ancestors performed basic calculations by using pebbles and 
by counting off notches carved in bone or on cave walls. Numeric notations 
appeared around 3000 BC. The Roman numerals, we learned in grade IV, 
were based on these early systems. For example, the year 2000 is written as 
MM. The ability to describe this number without a barrel of pebbles was a big 
step forward. However the Roman numerals could not be used to accomplish 
the simplest of calculations. For example, just try multiplying 2000 by 5 in 
Roman numerals - quite a formidable task for a grade fiver. 

The ingenious number "zero" we use to-day was developed in India by 
monks in the 5th century AD. The number was nothing less than perfect! 
How else can one describe an invention that has been adopted around the 
world and remains unchanged in 1500 years?! 

The concept of zero brought in a whole new world and, in this century, 
helped develop the universe of computers. Did you know that data used and 
processed by computers is coded in a language made up exclusively of ones 
and zeroes called a binary code? Even with computers, zero is still a formi- 
dable number. As we face the next century, BANG! The power of zero is 
again upon us. We apparently face annihilation around the year 2000 since 
manv computers can't differentiate between the '00' in the year 2000 from the 
year 1900. Millions and billions are being spent trying to teach that the '00' 
really mean the year 2000. 

And finally, to test the power of zero, try to divide any number by zero on 
your calculator. Some calculators show the answer as an error, and some as 
infinity. Didn't I tell you that zero has infinite possibilities?

U-ll/12 Soccer 

The U-ll/12 Soccer team enjoyed a successful 
season. Every player made significant progress, 
and I was always impressed with the effort I 
saw on the field. We were visited by teams 
from the Priory and LCC. While our win/loss 
record was not what we hoped for, our players 
acquitted themselves in every game. 
Characteristically, when our trip to Montreal 
was smothered by 15 cm of snow, the U-12's 
were itching to go in spite of the mud and 
slush. My thanks to Ms. Gomme, Mr. Street, 
Mr. Keyes and Mr. Schneider for all their help.

The Ashbury U-13 team's first tournament of the 
year was in Lennoxville at the beginning of October. 
Although we did not return successful, we gamed 
vital experience in this first competition. Later in the 
year, the team went to Toronto for the annual CAIS 
U-13 national soccer tournament. Our first game 
was an exhibition against St. John's Ravenscourt. We 
played very well, and won 4-0. Following the game 
we briefly visited the Hockey Hall. Embarking on 
our first day of tournament play, we found 
ourselves in a vary challenging four-team divisions 
in the tournament. Our lack of focus allowed 
Appleby to win the first game. Later on, we played a 
superb but unlucky game against Glenlyon-Norfolk 
School which ended in a 1-1 tie. A final 1-4 loss to 
Upper Canada College, the eventual championship 
winners, put us in the consolation playoffs. On the 
second day of the tournament, we beat Royal St. 
George's College 3-0, then squeezed by the skilled 
Countrv Day School 1-0. For our last game, we 
slaughtered St. Michael's University 4-0. Our series 
of wins placed us in the consolation semi-finals, 
where we managed a 1-0 win over Lower Canada 
College. Unfortunately, Country Day School beat us 
in double overtime for the Consolation finals with a 
score of 2-1. 155

The Under 14's, set off for Bishop's College School two weeks 
into the term. The highlight of the trip, apart from the soccer 
of course, was the annual stop at the Bar B Barn. The timid U- 
13's walked into the restaurant preceded by the wise U-14's 
who were excited at the prospect of eating the whole hog! 
Devin Macleod won the competition by eating 12 ribs. Once 
in Sherbrooke the excited gaggle of soccer players managed 
to keep Messers Storosko, King and Velentine up most of the 
night. The tournament started well for us, as we won against 
Centennial from Montreal 5-0. This was followed by two 
more shut outs. The Colts ruled for the second straight year! 
We had less success in our other major event, the Catholic 
Soccer tournament (1-1-2 record).

February 12 to the 14th. The purpose was basketball, but 
the trip was a rewarding experience for all involved. On 
the court we had our share of success despite the 'flu that 
affected many of our players. We won three games, losing 
to the eventual champions, Upper Canada, and placed 5th 
of 12 schools. Mr. Street and Mr. Storosko were most 
impressed by the behaviour of all the boys. The U14 were 
competitive in the Ottawa league, just missing the play- 
offs and having, all in all, a successful season. The U 12s 
had their share of difficulties, but there are positive signs 
for the future for this development team. Thanks to Ms. 
Gomme. At right: Shamir and Matt strut their stuff. 



A Galaxy of Stars

Michael Johnson and Ryan Davies, co-MVPs 
for (a very good) U-13 soccer team; Ian 
Rutherford and Matthew received the 
prestigious Coaches' Trophy for soccer. This 
rewards sportsmanship as well as talent; 
Graham Page and Omar Alsaffar shared the 
first ever Effort and Achievement award for 
squash; Anthony Rocheleau and Michael 
Prior were awarded the Euro '86 trophy for 
hockey; James MacMillan was MIP for U-13 
soccer. It was a very good year, as you can see 
by looking through the Sports section.

Cross-Country Running was a tremendous success 

this year. Under Mr. Street's guidance, we were 

impressive repeat city champions with Lee finishing 

first in the bantams, followed byrunners in 4th, 5th, 

and 6th place. In midget we also finished first. The 

best showing was Matt Runnalls in 4th. Obviously 

Ashbury rules x-cj Thanks to the expert coaching of 

Mr. King, Badminton was another area of great 

success. The Catholic Schools tournament was easy 

picking iar our guys, with Pablo and the team of 

James and Sascha going through undefeated in the 

»--" grade 7 division. Under Mr, Menzies' mentoring, 

squash Was a popular winter activity. We hosted 

for what will be, perhaps, an annual event. In 

years to come we hope for greater success! 

Hockey: In House & Out 

The season started well when our Hertz van broke 
down on the way to the Selwyn House tourna- 
ment. We and all our equipment all were forced 
into the school bus - quite a tight fit. Perhaps 
because of the transport problems we started off 
poorly, losing our first two games, but thanks to 
the strange system we made it to the playoffs. We 
beat the teams that had beaten us (Selwyn and 
Brebeuf) and won the tournament! Our next chal- 
lenge was the UCC tournament - one victory but 
no championship this time. UCC came to visit 
later and we combined hockey (two ties - thanks 
to Alistair Senn) and skiing. Most enjoyable. One 
more Montreal tournament (we finished 4th) 
ended our season. Thanks to Messers King and 
Storosko for all their time and trouble.

I am Allen the alligator 
and my idea of fun, 
Is to write animal poetry 
in the sun. 

I've got the pencil 
in my teeth, 
This next poem is 
going to be really neat. 

I am planning to write 
about billy goats, 
OH-NO!!! here come, 
the tourist boats. 

I should get a salary 
for all my hard work, 
Entertaining these silly 
tourist jerks. 

No sooner do they 
leave the dock, 
Than I hear them 
Calling me a croc. 

While crocs and gators 
have lots the same, 
Alligators are more 
Intelligent game. 

The tourists' cameras 
go click-click-click, 
I could sink their boats 
with just one flick. 

My tail is long 
and very strong, 
But to use it badly 
would just be wrong. 

It's not that I'm 
so very mean, 
I just don't like 
their noisy machines. 

We gators got 
to this swamp first, 
All I want is quiet 
to write my verse.

Gold is the taste of fame 

Gold feels hard and rich 

It sounds like a deep cello 

Gold is buttery popcorn 

Gold is warm, cosy sweaters 

Gold is the colour of my mom's hair 

The setting sun makes my lake turn gold 

Loonies shine like gold in the sunlight 

Gold is crispy, golden french fries 

A baby lab is a bundle of gold 

Sunny days in the Fall are gold 

But when Winter comes 

Gold is gone 

Andrew Doran 4B 

Silver is a swift fish in the sea 

Silver is a sparkling nickel 

A glittering quarter, a shiny dime 

Silver is a happy feeling 

Silver is a shining diamond in the moonlight 

Silver is a cavity that aches all night 

Silver is a curved spoon 

A pointy fork, a sharp knife 

Silver is an echo in an empty cave.

Orange is a juicy mandarin 

Orange is the flames that crackle 

Orange is in the morning 

Orange is a goldfish in a pond 

Orange is a marigold in the grass 

Orange is an oriole flying in the sky 

Orange is when you're angry or bad tempered 

Orange is my swimsuit 

Orange is the crunch of Cheetos 

Orange is a spicy Nacho chip 

Orange is the sun 

Orange is the colour of fun

My Kingdom DARK NIGHT 

The kingdom I rule 

is an isolated land 

where no one dare go. 

It is guarded by 

fierce Doberman pinschers 

and terrifying pit bulls. 

I live with my subjects 

side-by-side and I keep 

the land isolated. 

No people allowed, 

that is my rule. 

I live with my dogs 

and with no one else. 

I rule myself and 

my dogs obey me. 

I live by myself and 

that's fine with me. 

I wear shorts and a t-shirt 

and I am covered in 

dog hair. 

I am happy living 

in my private lair. 

I see to it that I am left alone 

and my subjects and my land 

are left unharmed 

and unchanged. 

My name is Dog, 

that's all I'll say; 

and I rule my way. 
182 J 

The sea is my blood and stones are my bones 
and the animals are my heart. 
I am Dark Night. 

My eyes are made of the rarest jewels 
and my clothes are made 
of the finest diamonds. 

I rule the golden land and own a silver village 

called Dark Village. 

It is built of silver and it shines day and night. 

My land is full of gold and my village 

is crowded with people. 

I like the fact that I am a ruler. 
I can do whatever I want. 
There is nobody 
that can boss me around. 

I am a god. 

I own everything. 

When I sing at night 

the glistening red flowers and 

the bright green seaweed 

dance to the tune. 

I am Dark Night. 


I am Gray 

The ruler of ice. 

My veins so clear 

and teeth so white. 

If you saw me 

I might give you a little fright. 

When winter comes. 

That's when I come out. 

I'm under the canal 

I'm under the sea 

I'm under some rivers 

I'm under your lake 

My people are nothing but 

a frail piece of snow. 

That's when I die 
I wait for people to come 

back again until 
the new leader takes over. 

That's when I go.

Tours of the Planets 

Mercury is the small planet nearest to the Sun. 

\s you might have thought, living on Mercury isn't fun. 

If the heat Joes not get you, the boredom probably will. 

So little happens on Mercury, it's enough to make you ill. 

Venus was once thought to be where tropical jungles have grown 
Unfortunately, this is not true: it's the hottest planet known. 

\ enus is a planet on which life may never lurk. 
Its heat is caused by a greenhouse effect gone totally berserk! 

Earth is our home planet, as most of you know. 

To get to Mars, sou don't have far to go. 

Mars, the Red Planet, is not so different from here. 

There are canals, volcanoes, polar caps and an earthly atmosphere. 

fupiter is the largest, with 16 moons or more 

It is made of hydrogen gas with a solid rocky core. 

Jupiter is the place that most great storm systems have their birth. 

The Great Red Spot for example, is twice as big as Earth. 

After Jupiter comes Saturn, another giant proud and tall 

Much like Jupiter in most ways, but a slight bit small. 

Rocks, dust, ice bits and many other things 

Make up the jewelry of the system: Saturn's enormous rings. 

Uranus is the most deserving planet of attention 

With a weird name, a set of rings and very strange rotation. 

If Pluto was at your feet and Mercury from where you see, 

Uranus would be . . . urn . . . right where vou think it would be. 

The eighth planet is named Neptune because of its distinct blue. 

Other than its colour, it is not very interesting, it's true. 

Smallest of the gas-giants, and with five moons or so, 

About Neptune, there's not much else to know. 

Last of all is Pluto, cold and all alone. 

It is the smallest planet, and little of it is known. 

Beyond Pluto is the vast blackness of interstellar space. 

In all of the 9 planets, Earth is the nicest place.

the serpent tempted eve with fruit 

a very tasty piece of food 

that would (when eaten) 

show the difference between evil and good 

by eating this wonderful apple 
the world would be thrown into chaos 
with school all day, no time for play 
and every day meeting with the boss 

lives would be lost 
to the evil enemy named death 
animals would become extinct 
there would be no air to breathe 

"well, in that case," said eve 
"i think i'll just have an orange"

I stood at the top of the mountain and took a deep breath. The cold fresh and pure 
mountain air burned my lungs but I didn't care. The incredible beauty of my surround- 
ings had shocked me and succeeded in dulling every sense other than sight. In my life 
never has anything so utterly silenced me. The unimaginable dazzle of the panorama that 
lay before me was enough to silence anyone. The snow capped peaks reached to the sky 
in a futile attempt to pierce the heavens. The emerald blue of the sky was so utterly pure 
that the perfection of the most flawless sapphire could not be compared to it. The strong 
white brilliance of the sun reflected off the snow in an awe inspiring reflection that was 
more powerful than a hundred thousand lights. 

I crouched and my skis dug into the snow. Faster and faster I went. The wind rushed 
by in a roar that increased in strength. I felt the incredible pressure of the wind against 
my face. I soared off the ledge into the air and in that moment, I experienced true joy.

The Eye 

Through a pocket of light 

I am given a scene so fair 

I am given a vision of a magnificent blue bird 

whose wings flutter lightly 

in the evening sky 

Through a pocket of light 

I am given a scene so true 

I am given a sun diving into a rich haze 

of lush green trees 

and flowers of the whole spectrum 

Through a pocket of light 

I am given a sense so magnificent 

I am given a smooth pebble hitting a lake that has not been 

touched in over a thousand years 

or maybe just not been touched since the night before 

Through a pocket of light 

I am given a scene so familiar 

I am given lush green trees, 

I am given stars sparkling in the sky so high 

I am given life and all its pleasures 

Through a pocket of light 

D. Matyas (7p) 

How few poets seem to write 
About the sense that we call sight 
With such a wide variety 
Of what we can or cannot see. 

When I think of sight I think of eyes, 

Gazing up into the skies. 

Or to pond or up a tree, 

These are the things I like to see! 

Some other things I like to see 
Are apple pies or Christmas trees, 
Feminine bodies from up above, 
That sparks a sense that we call love. 

Sometimes our eyes deceive us though 
Seeing things that are not so. 
Seeing one thing then another, 
Or seeing starts when hit by brother! 

And so I close this sightly tale, 

That talks of seeing grassy vale, 

With a word to poets to guide them right, 

Make more poems with the sense of sight.

What do you see when you look into a mirror? 

Do you see pride, do you see joy? 

Do you see a blind rage hidden under a calm exterior? 

Tell me child what do you see? 

I am what you see 

I am your mother, your father, your brother, your sister 

I am the tear in the eye of a child 

A young child, wishing his pain would go away 

I am your one, your only, your everything 

I am . . . You

Good Old Daze 

I remember the first day of school 

The anticipation of which class you were in, 

I remember assembly Monday morning 

Being tired and crammed against the wall, 

I remember when Junior School Drama 

Presented plays to the parents, 

I remember the never-failing feeling 

Of the thirty seconds before the bell rings 

That announces the beginning of a weekend or holiday, 

I remember the Hockey Trips with Kinger and Storosky 

The Bar-B-Barn and the short lived lie about the Bacon Warehouse, 

I remember the four corner tug-of-war that lasted for almost forty minutes 

And all the blistered and bleeding hands afterwards, 

I remember Phys. Ed. 

With Schneider and the crew, 

I remember studying for exams 

(And still getting so-so marks), 

I remember Mr. Humphreys' pep talks for our form room 

Before a fundraiser took place in the Junior School, 

I remember when rock was young 

Me and Susy had so Much Fun 

I remember the good old days
