in 2011 with funding from
At the conclusion ot the academic year, it is good to
reflect on the considerable achievements of the gradu-
ating class and, indeed, the whole school. In that sense
the 1993/94 year has been an excellent one with many
accomplishments in a whole realm of activities: drama,
2 ij^^^ music, art, athletics and community service. The leader-
ship of the school by the School Prefects and School Cap-
tain, J.J. Rawlinson, was of high quality. The new Student
Forum made important strides in its first year and set some
important paths for future years. The "School Blazer" with
il^^^ V ^4 a new challenging focus was stimulating and, to a de-
^■fc;<^^.^^H gree, controversial. It is said, "The pen is mightier than the
m ^Ifei- sword" and, as a result great care must be taken with a
fl . ' W&F pen which presents itself in a public forum. The challenge
AM v,-. ' for attaining accuracy, balance and a high degree of
interest is a formidable one.
Each year our students take with them from Ashbury spe-
cial experiences and particular memories. Most of these are bound up with special friends.
Indeed, the friendships formed at the school will greatly enrich your life. At graduation, some
of the friendships, due to separation of time and space, will fade to but a memory, while
others will flourish and remain strong. I trust that the friendships made with your fellow stu-
dents and with teachers will be continuing and positive influences in your life.
This year, my task, with the Board of Governors, has been focused on the planning of ex-
citing new facilities and a plan to double our endowed funds for financial aid. This will be
a tremendous step forward for the school since improved facilities and, simply, more space,
are urgent reauirements for Ashbury as we move forward to the Year 2000. The enormous
amount of work in planning, with numerous meetings and planning sessions, has placed
considerable demands on my time. My one regret is that these demands separate me some-
what from the daily life of the school and, in particular, from the senior class. I have de-
pended on others to carry extra burdens and I thank most warmly those who have shouldered
these extra responsibilities.
As the school grows silent and graduation fades to but a memory, shovels are in the ground
and a new beginning is underway!! Our graduates will step into new beginnings - into the
new world of university life in September - facing formidable challenges and a great deal
of hard work at levels which are often unaerestimated. The challenge is there and I am con-
fident that the Ashbury experience can, indeed, be an Ashbury advantage - but only if it
is combined with a firm resolve to face and overcome the challenges of the future.
Best wishes to the Graduating Class of 1994.
Robert B. Napier
NEW FRIENDS AND OLD FRIENDS
Make New friends,
but keep the old;
Those are silver,
these are gold;
like new wine;
Age with mellow and refine.
Friendships that have stood
the test - Time and change-
are surely best;
Make new friends,
but keep the old;
Those are silver,
these are gold.

playoffs began with a auarter final win over South Carleton (20-14). After advancing
to the semi finals, a loss to Merivale (21-14) ended the season. Graduates include Adam

The Junior Football Team went through an interesting learning experience in 1993.
After beating Glebe in their first game, the Juniors went on to play against bigger, much
bigger, much much bigger, people. Their season ended in the auarter-finals, at the
hands of Sir Robert Borden. The team would like to thank the coaches, Mr. Stableford
and Mr. Coles, for their time and devotion (and patience - NOT!)

The Senior Girls Basketball team had another awesome season, going undefeated
throughout the season and the playoffs. The only blemish on their perfect season was
their close loss in the City Finals. The team will lose three players to graduation, J.J. Raw-
linson, Jennifer Gavrel, and Ruth Sanchez, but it promises to be strong again. The play-
ers would like to thank Mr. Sparks, Ms. Todd, and Jill Napier for their patience and
coaching expertise. Thanks to all the people who came out and cheered us on to vic-
tory; you made a lot of noise.

This year, the Junior Girls' Basketball Team worked together and improved greatly.
They won some game(s) and lost some games, and had incredible stats(?). Each player
improved greatly, and those players moving to the Senior Team will be greatly missed.
Next year, the team will be even stronger, and we look forward to it.

The 1993-94 version of Senior Soccer journeyed to Toronto in October and returned
having won the Consolation Final at the National Independent Schools Soccer Tour-
nament for the second year in a row. We struggled into the playoffs and capped an
interesting season with an undeserved penalty kick against us. Oh well, hopefully next
year's team will carry on the tradition of body sliding across wet fields and screaming
"Fitgar" at any given moment. The graduating players: Nick Day, Vikas Churra, Angus
McLaughlin, Antoine Mandy, Jesse Noonan, Graham Dickson, and Andrew Craig, would
like to thank everyone for coming out and supporting us at our home games. Good
luck next year.

The Junior Boys Soccer Team had an excellent season, performing beyond anyone's
wildest hopes. After flying through the regular season unblemished, they annihilated
their opponents in the playoffs. After capturing the Ottawa Board Championships in
convincing fashion, they went on to the regional championships, the Mud Bowl, unfor-
tunately losing in penalty shots. The players would like to thank Mr. Valentine for his
valuable time and for his unending supply of Rolaids.

This year's tennis season was deemed a rebuilding year, since most of the top tennis
players had graduated over the past tew years. With this in mind, the team went through
some very extensive team building and goal setting exercises. Captained by Mike Sul-
livan and Jessica Hanna on the A team, and Louis Quevillon and Cristina Ruggiero on
the B squad, we managed to win all of our regular season matches and captured the
A and B city championships. This has never before been accomplished by Ashbury.
Not bad for a rebuilding year! My thanks to all the team members, and especially to
Mr. Tanod, for their support during the season.

The team had one goal this year: a championship. This year's Junior Girls Vol-
leyball Team rewrote history at Ashbury, with the first ever Junior Girls' Sports Cham-
pionship. The beginning of the season was tough, with many new faces to add
to the few old ones. As the season moved on, a playoff final match against arch
rival Elmwood loomed large. The match was intense and hard fought, but the team
was egual to the challenge, and with the match deadlocked at 2, the team ral-
lied to win the deciding game 15-13. The team would like to thank Ms. Todd for
putting up with us, and leading us to a memorable and amazing season. Good
luck next year! Douje! That could have been you!

The Ashbury Junior Boys' Basketball team had a frustrating season. De-
spite promising beginnings at camp in mid-November, the team began
its season with four straight defeats, the team went on to finish at 4-6. The
team made it to the city auarter finals before losing a hard-fought heart-
breaker 46-42 to the # 1 team in the city. The team would like to thank Mr.
Gray, Mr. Sparks, and all the fans who supported us this year.

For the second straight year, the Alpine Ski Team won the City Com-
bined Title, and the odds of the trophy remaining at Ashbury seem strong.
We are a very young team, however, most of our racers have valuable
experience from a competitive skiing background. Those racers who
were new to competition also performed well, and were a valuable as-
set to our team. Unfortunately, the team was not able to participate in
the Ontario Championships this year.

When the curling team sets out to break records, we seem to know
no limits. Even though no goals were set out at the beginning of
the season, with the obvious exception of placing in the top 50, we
managed to break three records this year. Mr. Sparks' Phys-Ed class
helped us break our fan record, three female members allowed
us to break our player gender record, and a third place finish for
the 'A' team provided the best ever finish for the team. The year
brings to an end many an illustrious curling career. Those leaving
include Leonard Erb, Andrew Scorsone, Allan Richards, and Peter
Hucal, who will all be pursuing post-secondary curling endeavors.
(Hurry Hard guys!) The team may never be the same without them
(maybe next year they'll place second!).

This year's Senior Girls team, faced with an uphill battle after losing many young
players to the juniour team, responded brilliantly with an excellent season. Start-
ing with some brutal early morning sessions in April, the team progressed enough
to enter an indoor tournament at Hillcrest. Surprising all, the team went undefeated
in the tournament, capturing the trophy by winning six thrilling games. At the end
of the season, the girls found themselves in first place with only one loss to blemish
their record. Unfortunately, Ashbury lost in the city semi-finals on a very lucky goal.
A great season by any standards!

The first ever edition of Junior Girls Soccer at Ashbury had a roller-coaster like
season. Under the helpful guidance of Mr. Valentine, the girls accomplished four
of their five goals: they scored a goal, they got a shutout, they tied a game, and
most importantly they improved tremendously. They plyaed with enthusiasm
throughout the season and look forward to an even better year next year.

The 1994 Senior Boys rugby team had a somewhat disappointing season that
consisted of 7 games: 4 wins and 3 losses. We started the season oft with a loss
against Rideau. The final score was 8-7, with Simon Frewer scoring all the points.
Next we played a tough team at Hillcrest and lost a respectable game 12-0. The
team started coming together and we went on a 4-0 run: winning 13-0 against
Canterbury; 21-3 against Glebe; 5-0 against Lisgar; and finally 24-0 against Glebe
in the opening round of the B playoffs. That put us in the B finals against Nepean
and Rideau. The entire team played horribly and we lost 20-10. This ended our
disappointing season with Dan Starr as MVP and Jim Nastic winning the best-all-
around-guy award. Thanks to Jimmy Norton, Mark Schneider, and the other coaches.

ART & LITERATURE
THE MAN IN THE ROOM
I'd rather be alone
An aching breaking sensation
From Heaven and Hell
To the holiness of Dawn.
I'd rather be alone
And begged me to stop
From all the directions
Of galaxies from afar . . .
I'd rather be alone
Yelling screaming shouting
For life to disappear
And darkness to engulf him.
I'd rather be alone
Tears glistening in the dusk.
The streaks across his ruff cheeks
A symbol of wanting no more.
I'd rather be alone
Whining, screeching tires of the car
Looking at me, utter misery
My look saying simply
Oh, but you are!
It is here I walk
Smelling the sweet cologne
Avoiding their eyes completely
Knowing that I am alone.
Trying to think of some way to smile
Seeing I never could
Loving the air, the blowing wind
Thinking I'm no longer a child . . .
The bridge I walk on
Will be there always
Wishing I could too
I stop, I look, think of you.
But the world is spinning
And the sun is sleeping
And the ground is always strong
If only this deep sorrow could lift.
Forever be gone.
A fear of hurting
Afraid to touch
Too scared to have no one
Afraid to love too much . . .
But here I am.
Waiting to be told
That my lucky fortune
Can only turn to gold.
It is here I've stopped
To think and smell and see
I do not need to run or hide
For alone is where I'll be.
A chuckle breaks the silence
The clown glares around
From behind his smiling mask
Then breaks into laughter . . .
Sarcastic laughter . . .
Did you hear the one about the .
He says to his audience
They all look on
As he mucks up the joke
Sweat beads on his shaven head
As he pulls out tour shiny blades
The spotlight reflects off one
while he hacks at a melon . . .
Or is it a head . . .
No! Can't lose control now
Got a show to do
He throws one blade
Into the air and catches it
With one padded glove . . .
One by one
He tosses the knives
Into the air
And the crowd roars
As he opens his mouth
And one by one
The knives disappear down his throat
A great performance, they say
As the make-up runs into his eyes
Spring has come and with it gaiety,
The birds salute it with joyous song,
And the brooks, caressed by Zephyr's breath,
Flow meanwhile with sweet murmurings;
The sky is covered with dark clouds,
Announced by lightning and thunder.
But when they are silenced, the little birds
Return to fill the air with their song;
Then does the meadow, in full flower,
Ripple with its leafy plants.
The goatherd dozes, guarded by his faithful dog
Rejoicing in the pastoral bagpipes,
Nymphs and Shepherds dance in the glade
For the radiant on set of Springtime.

Charles Haines reviews
I Never Saw Another Butterfly
(JENNIFER SMITH:) What's next on your list? Ashbury
College, isn't it?
(CHARLES HAINES:) Yes, because in April I regularly go to
the Theatre Ashbury production at Ashbury College partly
because Greg Simpson, the theatre director there, is
unqualifiedly a genius when it comes to getting young
people to put on a play.
This time, they're doing / Never Saw Another Butterfly by
Celeste Raspanti: an episodic, not really very well written
piece about World War II Jewish children confined in prison
at Terezin, with deadly knowledge of Auschwitz — where
many were sent — always on their mind. Two hours
of unrelieved gloom, grief; the cast of nineteen do an
excellent, tender job — the production better than the text.
Marie-Soleil Beaudoin, in the part of a child bride, plays a
marvelous, strong violin solo of her own composition.
Tara Story: excellent as an understanding teacher.
Jamie Wisniowski is truly moving as a heartbroken girl who
survives. Greg Simpson directed.
All In A Day,
April 29, 1994.

ASHBURY IS LIKE A CANOE RIDE DOWN RAPIDS:
There are a lot of ups and downs (Re-
becca and Andrew)
You tend to lose things. (Rebecca)
You can steer your own future and not let
anyone else screw it up. (Andrew)
You may drown or survive the hard times
but still manage to get your pants wet.
If you get in a lot of trouble you may end
up stepping in a lot of manure. (Craig)
Graeme can be heard saying "I'll pay you back. I promise", or "I
got the Jeep", Purple will be remembered for blasphemous rumours
and creative driving skills. PP's are ID, debtors, taxi cab drivers and
finding a ride home. Highlights include cottage '92, '93, Grad '93.
Crowes '93, drivers ed, tackle hoops in Cedarhill, the isolation room.
Hull hopping, bummings cigs from Newsline host, being propositioned
in class. Driving west bound traffic, sharing cabs with Chuck and MK.
hosting party Fall '93, hotels and wine cellar floors. Aspires to find
a real job and a steady girlfriend. Thanx to MK, DG, SM. CP. AR. RM
Yes, there is a spurt of energy, smile or even name to the face otherwise known
as Mc (a name which I never commented to). My two years at Ashbury were quite
interesting and sometimes hard (good luck to all IB diploma students!)
1st year: Brad, it was a rollercoaster ride . . . Jen P., thanks for the rides . . . Indi,
whatever happened to those aimless walks around the school!?! , . . Jen G. and
Nick, you're welcome.
2nd year: Jen P. and Jen R., when will I ever break from you guys!?! . . . Indi, I
don't know what I would have done without you (love life is so weird!) . . . Akua,
those phone calls died but through it all, you learned that you don't GO for a
guy! . . . James, yes I was gone for a week after Christmas break . . . And finally
and most importantly, thanks to my parents for all the trouble they went (and still
go) through for me.
Goodbye everybody, I'll be outa here.

I would like to thank my teachers for their guidance and support: Mr. Merritt, G.R.V.,
S.K.C.G.. N.J.. R.J.C 1 also wish to thank my family and the Wheelers for never under-
estimating my ability to succeed.
I've reached the end of the beginning. Seven years, five blazers and one education
later, and I'm still laughing. I'm trying to write ultimate cheesy hoop-la but I must bid
a fond farewell to all my friends. Come and see me at work when I'm 30! (Do you
want fries with that?) Good luck to my grade nine friends and thanks to all the teach-
ers. Finally with my departure, I pose a question:

P. P.P.P.S. I love doing this "P.S." thing!
Having spent 5 years at Ashbury has enabled me not only to get a great edu-
cation but to be able to see education from a unique point-of-view That is why
I have to start off by saying very special thanks to Mrs. J.N. MacLaren If it was
not for her and the 5-year scholarship. I would never have been able to go to
this great school
I would also have to say thanks to all of my teachers. But special thanks to Mr
Penfon. Mr. Robertson. Mr. Niles. Mrs. Jowett, Mrs. Novick, Mrs. Allen, and Mr. Var-
ley all of whom have given me consideration, encouragement, and support when
I needed it the most. Also, thanks to Mr. Alan Leslie and Mrs. Kane who have pro-
vided me with some employment, when employment was hard to find.
Good luck to Peter ('Timmy'). Stephen. Mohsin, Alan, Nancy, and J.L.C. I hope
you can reach your destination in the future
Again, thank you. and see y'a later!

Yes my initials do spell NERD! That would be Nicholas Edward
Ross Day for the few of you who don't already know. Seven years
of Ashbury has quickly come to an end. and left me with an
unforgettable collection of happy memories: soccer trips, pe-
nalty shots (yes I know Jon); soccer City B Champs; character
building; sports - you name it I'll do it; indecent exposure at
fashion show, spending an hour searching for my ski under the
chairlift (uncool); Whiteface wipeouts; surprise B-Bay party; darn,
another double spare; trust me; Brown, what just happened?
Dominican!!! absolutely unbelievable! Orange pants are cool;

burn, I tan; get me some Solarcaine; Merengue with strangers

IT, CR, AL, AS, WER, and most important of all: Mummy, Daddy,
and Elspeth • Thank you and I love you.

"I need a holiday"
- Nicholas E.R. Day
. . . and furthermore I believe the rationale supporting the previous proposition to
be flawed due to the inherent uncertainty in the issue; so I will not attempt an answer
at this time to avoid further confusing an already misconstrued abstraction. Yes, the
past few years have been fun. Did I ever directly answer a question? Well of course
that depends upon one's own personal semantical definition of a direct answer
. . The enthusiasm of my studious classmates and endearing names I've been be-
queathed, "Wart" being my personal favourite, will not soon be forgotten. I've had
a blast, at least when I wasn't working, so what, the last five minutes! Boarding has
been great, the fine cuisine, the flexible schedule, and (seriously) the great com-
pany. I've learnt that rules are meant to be broken, just discretely and with a smile
(and a little technology occasionally helps). Mr. Deakin remember: the man who
dies with the most toys wins! Thanx to all of you who've made this time so memorable!
My four years of boarding are over and I've survived .. . albeit not un-
Much has happened that has changed me for life.

Grade 13: no roommate! . . . paperwork . . . photo club? . . , graduation
Thanks everyone for everything.

Five years ago when I came to Ashbury I was short, quiet and innocent. I
am now leaving short and the rest I don't know! Mt Ste Anne (gas!), NYC
trip, Colorado, Florida, canoeing (Denholm you are my hero), sorry about
the drapes Biff. The most memorable, if you can remember it was the Do-
minican: Nater & Al: we get the room tonight, crys on the beach (Mandy),
scabbies (Carlos), breakfast; do they have that here? Cave bar (nice
pants!) My friends, you know who you are, I will miss you all. Andrew: MAP
club, drives, pillows. & in general all the insults (mine were better though)
Anyways . . Al, here's to swiss chalet and sleazy Hull men, Akua, Calc, you
smoke - ', AD. it's been a long time. Hopefully I am on to a new life - Univer-
sity (subject change please 1 ) I will think back often but I know Dominican
reunion is in the future Bye! 1
"Education is what survives when what has been learnt has been forgotten ." - B.F.
I may forget some of the details I have learnt at Ashbury, (how to prove a mathe-
matical proposition b.m.i., for example, or the philosophical argument that I might
not be Celia - a.k.a. Cynthia - but Matilda. Celia's twin sister), but my Ashbury ed-
ucation will survive for the rest of my life.
Many thanks to my teachers for the inspiration and encouragement, to my friends
for the fun, the support and the hug therapy, and to my family for all of the above
Good luck to the Grads of '94 and to the Grads of the future. Whatever you do in
life, don't get caught up in the big whirlwind; take time to stop and think every once
and a while.

My stay at Ashbury has been short, but not without memories. I've
learned a lot about myselt and others during these past two years.
I'd like to thank all the teachers who helped me along the way. And
of course I can't forget AJS and the senior girls basketball team • good
luck next year • kill the Heffer!
NERD • thank you for everything.
Just remember, the trick isn't to rid your stomach of butterflies but to
make them fly in formation.
It would be so difficult for me to sum up in a few words my two years
at Ashbury and the experiences I have had. I will still remember Char-
lotte in the closet and the huge knocks on the walls after lights out.
The bung boug! Every Friday that comes from CHARU's window will
always be so surprising for me; Hey sexy girl, don't play with your eyes!!
To "I don't know", you know who you are, the noises and the deep
conversations at 3:00 am won't bother me anymore!!!
Quant a Kim (Ma chouette) je ne peux rien dire, sauf que . . . tu vas
me manquer; Ainsi qu'Eva I will miss you very much. Miss Bibian!!! don't
speak any English in the house because you have to practice your
CHINESE!! Thanks to all my teachers, I owe you all very much. Thanks
also to Indy T., Justine E., Cristina R., Celia and all the ones who had
to give me some support. Bye everybody, I love you all. and I will
I'd like to thank all the people that made my stay at Ashbury bear-
able. I'd like to thank Mr. Zrudlo for having different perspectives on
life. Oleg. Jacques, Dennis, you guys have made the last year of my
life at Ashbury the Best. I'd rather forget about my amateur volleyball
career, but I couldn't forget Mike, Olley, Bob, Zak, Ted. John, and
Nate. For some reason I still think these guys are great.
Who are you.

Whoever said you can't run away from your problems obviously wasn't running
fast enough. "They say the only thing between you and the perfect run is fear.
Fear of failure What you should really be afraid of is what you'll miss if you don't
try. Sell the buick, sell everything you own. but never, never sell out No matter
how many times you crash, get up. Point the tips downtown and let em run. Life
is vertical. And there is no feeling on the face of the earth like living on the fall
line." - Glen Plake
Ignore your problems and they will go away. Rules are just a set of guidelines
subiect to your own interpretation. Live in the now. If it doesn't have to be done
until later ... do it later. And don't ever, ever save the best for last!
Changing schools for my last year of high school was not easy. I, however, would
not have been successful without support from my friends (both here and in Tan-
zania), teachers and my parents.
Thanks Cathie for all the help. Good luck with vet school and Jamie! France, thanks
for being my roommate and putting up with my 'complaining' and my cold blood.
Deanah, I will never forget you and Bessy •• your ice-age computer! Lisa, thanks
for everything. Good luck next year Charlotte, take care of Virgilia for me! Wins-
ton, thanks for the help . . . remember. I have the sixth sense!
I would like to especially thank Ms. Pritchard. my house mother for everything she
has done for me all year long
Finally. I would like to thank my parents and my cat, Festus for being there when-
ever I need them, standing by me in everything I do and believing in my ability
I would like to thank all my friends and teachers who have made my two years
at Ashbury exceptional!
Heather: Mr. Willy, Virgilia. Murder 101, Damage and "Guess what I'm thinking of?"
Meenal: Byob. Zionism, Bronze Canoeing: "Draw, draw, draw! No pry! Pry! I SAID
DRAW I MEANT PRY!" CM.

Len. I love you!
Michelle: Roombutt. Jelly Beans and Candy Canes - Yummy!
France: "You can't get — from a phone?!"

- Responsibility is a Heavy Responsibility
It was daylight when you woke up in your ditch. You looked up at your sky. That
made blue your colour. When you stood up there was goo all over your clothes
Your hands were sticky. You wiped them on your grass so now your colour was
green. Oh, lord why did everything have to keep changing like this? You are get-
ting nervous again. Your head hurt like this. You crawled up out of your ditch
onto your gravel road. You began to walk waiting for the rest of your mind to
come back to you. You can see the car parked far down the road and you walk
toward it. "If god is our brother," you thought, "then satan must be your cousin."
Why didn't anyone else understand these important things. When you got to your
car. The doors, they were locked. It was a red car and it was new. Out across
your field you could see two tiny people walking by your woods. You began to
walk towards them. Now red was your color and of course those little people out
there were yours too.
Thanks, to my mother and father who gave me the freedom to pursue my cho-

I'd also like to thank all you guys that were there for me and
with me for those long years. You know who you are.
I'll miss some parts of Ashbury, but not enough to want to re-

I'll never forget Mt. St. Anne, Calabogie, and Winter Survival.

I've spent only 2 years at Ashbury. but those 2 years were enough to alter the
course of my life. Having a vivid picture of my future in my mind. I'm more than
anxious to leave this place. But I certainly won't forget it. Special thanks to all
the teachers who educated me and my friends who kept me company. But mostly
I would like to thank my mother for her sacrifice and love.

how a learning institution can stifle intellect and format young, impressionable
minds into drones, products of a religiously historical establishment. Pilote picked
up a smooth, silver-coloured pebble. "This looks like a platinum couteau", ex-

a short life of total freedom. It sailed through the atmosphere over mountains and
open fields gathering speed and yet never losing its fluid grace. When Pilote lost
sight of the stone it struck his mouth. Feeling only confusion, he entered the school
only to find a foreign place. The school was reassuring when the halls were full,
now they were empty but for one, Sidney. In a relaxed way, Pilote spoke, "Where
is everyone? Am I lost?" "No, you're not lost. School's over that's all" returned Sid-

Here is to 4 great years at Ashbury. When I look
back there are many good and bad things over
the past 4 years which I will remember for a long
time to come. The thing I owe Ashbury for is. the
great friends that I have made over the past years,
without them I don't know where I would be. WHAT
EVER!! OK That was a little bit cheesy for me! Ash-
bury is really the best. NO JOKE! RIGHT GUY! Well
thanks to all my friends for the good times and the
good times to come! Extra thanks to Seifali for be-
ing such a good friend and my parents for mak-
ing me come to Ashbury. Take it Easy Lads!!!
Well, my five years at Ashbury are up and I have no idea what comes
next. Out of these 5 years have come many fond and not so fond mem-
ories; an unfriendly aquaintance with a fence and a certain cliff!!
(Whiteface '90). numerous encounters with my head . . . and the
ground. (Rugby) My 1st and last time to play house basketball
(" . . . dribble the ball??"). I can probably also safely say that I won't
be falling up or down any more common room stairs. Flying desks!
(bet you didn't know desks could fly Meg!). 3 Papineau's (spaghetti
will never be the same Doc), 2 Mt St Annes (romper room at 4am).
Fashion show 92. 93. Dominican Republic . . . the best time of my
life! (too many memories, to little space) Special thanks to all my friends
and for the few who have been true just remember that I'll always
be here for you! CRAIG, will you ever stop smiling? ... no wait that's
impossible, thanks for everything!! Also thanks to all my teachers esp
RJC - YOU'RE THE GREATEST, Special thanks to Mr. Niles for being there
for me in my many times of need. I will be forever grateful. Mom. Dad
and Trushar - the best family a girl could ever ask for.
Dear Boo, 1st there were 6 & now there are 5 left to remember crank
calls, hide S go seek in the woods. Jacuzzis, the way you cross the
street, my couch in one piece then my couch in 2. Piano Man and
everything else awesome and bad over the last 8 years. I'll miss you.
Remember me, remember it all. Your friend Akua.
Two years at Ashbury have been phenomenal. I can't forget my
friends Vikas "Whoomp there it is!" Churra. Jacques "The rule -
always a "Theodas, and Dave "a little slap and tickle" Fairbanks.
Also my OAC geography class. My sports career has come to an
end. Being a multisport athlete has allowed me to play football,
rugby and curling, but I'll always regret not playing on the com-
petitive lawn bowling team. My haircut is better than Dave's. So
goodbye and hope to see you again.

Growing up it all seems so one-sided. Opinions all provided, the future
pre-decided Detatched and subdivided in the mass production zone.
Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone. Some will sell their dreams
for small desires And loose the race to rats, get caught in ticking traps
And start to think of somewhere to relax their restless flight. Somewhere
out of a memory lighted streets on quiet nights. Any escape might help
to smooth the unattractive truth. But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
the restless dreams of youth. - RUSH
The final blessing will slash the wrist of grace. Silence the cries of blinded
lives, wipe their trusting blood in thy holy face; The final blessing is the
power to erase. Beneath a burning sun. a blue dark as night, the statue
arose from the sands of timeless might, I take the throne, bare of fear,
to watch the sands for another ten thousand years. Alone I stare, the
shifting plain, in my endless horizon all I have is my pain.

When I first came to Ashbury I was a little scared about attending a private
school. I didn't know what to expect. Over the past 6 years, to my surprise
I've developed a great bond with the school which I will cherish forever.
It is something I will never forget. Thanks to my parents for paying the tuition
to allow me to attend this fine institution of great learning.
HOLD ON, REALITY CHECK! Is this me talking? I sound like some sort of weird
intellectual. Maybe that's what private school has done to me, molded me
into something I'm not and maybe it just made me more wise and disci-
plined, an asset worth having. I would like to thank my mother, father and
sister, Halima. The family values they provided me with would even make
Dan Quayle jealous. A special thanks also to all my teachers, I'm sure what
they've taught me will not come to waste. To all my lunch room buddies,
I shall miss our lunch hour matinees. To everyone else including Allan, Den-
nis and Michel, I wish you the best of luck, thanx for the memories.
My apologies to those who were victims of savage mood swings, and
also to all the MacDonald's Drive - thru workers for my indecisiveness.
Thank you to all my close friends. I am confident that we can take on
anything after that, and sorry for making you eat all that junk food.

it's faces, voices and emotions; a celebration of friendship. I want
to thank these friends. Nancy, Vivian, you are my family. We laugh
and cry together. Late night snacks and talks. Dancing and Singing.
Go down the hill or downtown. Let's go for icecream! I'm going to
the chicken to get some kitchen! How many red roses do you have
now? Your teddy bears are taking over your bed! What does that
alarm clock say when it goes off anyway? Charlotte and Heather;
a toast to the midnight roomraids, hiding in the closet (or out of it)
The crowd goes wild! You must be the jellybean queen. Meenal and
Indrani Chemistry won't be the same without you. Weekends at Lisa's
Taking over Len's car. Grad trip, now I truly know the meaning of sun.
I could never write everything I remember here. I love you all, be for-
ever in my heart. Ciaos Bella!
Well my eight years at Ashbury have finally come to an
end. That's a very long time. I suppose it's safe to say
that I've gotten to know and understand the school pretty
well by now; although chapel, math, and the house run
are three things that continue to elude me. Looking back
on the years I've come to realize that it has been a good
experience and that I've been wearing this uniform for
way too long, so goodbye to CB, MF. AL, SP, RH, FB, AH,
JE. AO, ND and until next time. Thanks to all the staff at
Ashbury and good luck to all the graduates of 1994.
"Go in peace, and celebrate life!" Rev. Todd Meeker
To all my friends; Stubbs. Jon. Zach. & Zafuud (Jesse B), I'm going to miss you
guys next year, remember love BBS! Mikey. you're the bestest friend a girl
could have, thanx for listening. Shelley & Mandy, I love ya! Sonya, love you
babe, thanx for teaching me how to drive stick. DNA. Chazz. and France, let's
talk about bad stuff, by the way DNA does smell Roomster (92-93). I loved our
bed talks, twas the night before exams . . ., roomie (93-94), Candy canes, jelly
beans & corny presents. D-man. thanx for the date, love ya hon. Caress. I'm
going to have my cheeks surgically removed for you. Tis Matt and BJ. (little
James) be good cuties. To everyone else: have a happy day!
Thanks to JK, IHD. GRV, GGT, PGM. PC. AP. MOM & DAD.
I love my present. I'm not ashamed of what I've had, and not sad because I have it no longer."
As my time at Ashbury comes to an end. I look back at some of my fonder memories: KIMMY:
The little Sis/ Sweety! . . . lots of work & stress, play & cast parties. N.Y. with Luis, Choir trip, Stowe
with Christopher, late night talks with Luis. "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame
on me!" - HA! I've fooled you more than once! Montreal with France. Man list * 1 .2,3. boat cruise
'92, June 24, 1992. my moonlight caller, My Brothers, Port Hope with Justine, Friday night tennis
lessons, girl bonding with Eva & Cristina, and my house hunt. KDN, GRV, DS, DDL, MAP, JK - Thank
you for your kindness, patience and belief in me I'll never forget it! Thanks to my close friends:
Eva, for the laughter, tears & advice; Cristina (Tina!), for your unfailing friendship; Oumou, tu seras
toujours ma p'tite chouette que j'adore!; Rob, for the talks and constant teasing; France, for your
support and chats; my bothers luis & Akbar, for laughs, fun, deep talks & support . . you two are
the best!!! I love you all . . don't ever change! Thanks Mom and Dad for putting up with me
. . I know it's been difficult! Finally thank-you to my best friend Christopher for the most memor-
able 2 years and being there with me every step of the way. I'll see you in a little house by the
lake. I love you. To my friends and family: "Only you and I can help the sun rise each morning.
If we don't, it may drench itself out in sorrow." - Joan Baez.
Changing schools in your last year of high school can be nerve-wrecking and depress-
ing. But I found Ashbury full of vitality, friendship and fun. Although academics is one
of Ashbury's priorities, athletics is also stressed. Who can forget those long B-ball prac-
tices (another pro-sprint!?!), early morning soccer (it's too early!), tennis (we won!) and
badminton practices (you play badminton?) Walking down the hall (What do I have
now, I'm late!), attempting to find my books (I'm sure I put them there!!) It all happened
at Ashbury College
All righty then! Enough said. I had a great time at Ashbury. I hope that everyone will
be successful with their future plans. Good-bye guys, but remember . . . there are still
three Sanchez's left!! Special thanks to my family for being there.
- Rise free from the down and seek adventure,
Let the moon find thee, thy other lakes
And the night overtake thee, everywhere . . .
It's been five years that went by quickly.
Thanks to all the people that have made it a mem-
The reason we say goodbye is so that someday,
we may say hello again
Well what can I say? . . . It's finally over! Eight years at Ashbury and
what has it given me . . How to sleep in class, annoy teachers, sell
eggrolls. Thanks to long haulers; Viking, Nick, Len, Winston (seven year
math tutor), DA., Andrew. Peeter. All those in the Senior school, you
were the reason I survived; Beck, Akua, Nate, Andrew C, Biff, Eva,
Mandy, Ken, France, Shell, Alfredo, Felix, Gerald and my last trench
class. Grade eleven was a blur, well more of a spin. "Assume the
Crash Position. The rest of the years are summed up with, "I think we
have a problem!", "I forgot to do WHAT!" and "Wake me it's over."
Places also have special meaning but maybe it's the company, Da-
niels, Les Suites, the Dominican Republic, "My Place", the Corner
Pocket and HULL! . .
Why I do what I do: just read the quotes
"Nothing to it, but to do it!" - Sharbot Lake Airborne
"Come! Sit! And Drink!" - some bartender
Thanks also to; ID. TF, MF. NH, TH, KJ, AK, JK. RK, ML, TN, CW, MT, SP.
B. "Ping" Y., the JC crew and especially Mr. Coles for putting up with
all of us.
Janet Jay Rawlinson
Cheers! To great friends, great times and a bewildering, inspiring and
challenging experience. My five years have come and gone, but the
memories will never fade . . . Thanks to all who helped me through.
There is always a place for you at my table,
You never need be invited.
I'll share every crust as long as I'm able,
and know you will be delighted.
There is always a place for you by my side,
and should the years tear us apart,
I will feel lonely moments more satisfied
with a place for you in my heart!
P.S. To JDR, RBR and DJR; Although I never say it, I do love you all very
Thanks to: I.H.. D.D.L, Mr. Grey and K.D.N
A BRIEF CHRONICLE OF MY 4 YEARS AT ASHBURY
Grade 9; a recent arrival in Canada. I was a naive
child eager to "northamericanize."
Grade 10, 1 became a pseudo-intellectualist teenager
who quietly rebelled against the rebels and
Grade 11.1 was transformed into a right-wing capit-
alistic adolescent willing to die for the sys-
Grade 13; I am a man who asks why?"
Since I've never had much to say. I guess this would be a
good time to make up for it. Well after 7 years I figure I've
accomplished a few goals, but I do know what I've enjoyed
while doing this. Let's see 5 Papineau's. 2 and 3/4 Calabo-
gies; snow not included, weekly visits to Danny's and can't
forget Dominican '94 with a Presidente in hand! Then there's
the people, Kev, I made it to one Dog and Grog. Dave; what
can I say (Bumble Bee), Pete; um . . . um yaa!. Al. Lev. Lopez
and my bus buddy.
Special Thanks to Doc; for many a fine O/E trips. FM, uncle
Ross. GL. where did he go? Seifali and Megan for organis-
ing the DR and to all who were there And to anyone else
I've bumped into or tripped over in the last 7 years I say
thanks and this Bud's tor you!
Never let anything get you down,
Put on a smile and never frown,
Never, no never, let anything ever,
Let anything get you down.
Life is a ladder of downs and ups,
You've got to have thistles and buttercups,
Life is a bubble that bursts in dreams,
Nothing is ever as bad as it seems.

The production of the 1993-94 Ashburian got off to a rather late start this year. In November,
a handful of students headed an organizing committee which put out a call for interested
volunteers. From the many who answered the call, a board of editors was established and
many sub-committees were formed. I would like to thank those who took the initiative to con-
struct the framework for the organization and also the many people who responded and
helped in either an active or a behind-the-scenes manner. I know there were numerous stu-
dents whose interest and talents were not tapped. Please do not let this discourage you
from coming out and participating next year.
The pace of the year has been a hectic one highlighted by the many deadlines that had
to be met. Minor crises sometimes intervened, but these obstacles were nothing that a few
midnight sessions could not overcome. Thanks to those who rose to the occasion when re-
- everyone who took and donated pictures.
- the teachers and students whose eauipment we used and supplies we borrowed.
- those who contributed art and literary pieces.
- those students and coaches who submitted write-ups on time.
- the Junior School for their input and co-operation.
- those core individuals whose leadership qualities prevailed.
Finally, to the graduates, undergraduates, faculty, parents and friends who may peruse
this book, please:
- applaud the effort it reveals.
- excuse any errors it contains.
- treasure the memories it arouses.

A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
With all the activities Junior School participates in,
it is difficult to comment on one page, particularly
as this message is written at the start ot the new year,
but I would like to comment on our newcomers.
Ours is a unique school which cannot be all things
for all people. New students invariably have to make
adjustments as our expectations, our manner of do-
ing things, is often different from what they are ac-
customed to. Some cannot or will not adjust and they
become our loss. Fortunately such loss is very rare.
As I reflect on the many new students this year (sixty-
three in all, or 45%) and not just incidently having
completed all the first term reports, I can't help but
remark on their success as students and as members
of our community. They have not only added to the
school, but also help shape it as each year takes
on new definition as reflected by the people in it.
It follows that next year again promises to be dif-
ferent and that's what makes our association with the
Junior School so refreshing; so we thank our new
members for helping make it so.
Peter Montgomery, Director.
A MESSAGE FROM THE YEARBOOK COMMITTEE
For the third year in a row, we, the Junior School have our own yearbook. However, this is only the sec-
ond year that the production of the Junior Ashburian has been taken on by a group solely made up
of members of the Junior School.
Although most of the committee was made up of students, a few members of the staff played very
important roles. We would like to thank Mr. King for all the time he dedicated as our staff advisor. He
organized every meeting and gave us invaluable guidance throughout the year. In addition we extend
a sincere thanks to Mr. Valentine and Ms. Lahey for helping us along with their advice and many pictures.
After looking through the numerous photos and reading many write-ups, we realized what a great year
it was and we hope it brings back great memories for you as well.
Mr. King (Staff Advisor]

1993-94 POETRY COMPETITION
This year's poetry competition was a great success. There were twelve contestants, all teaturing unigue
and original poems. The students, all from grade 7 and 8, expressed great emotion when speaking
on such various topics as the gruesome story of a vampire to the light-hearted narrative about the
cat. There was even a poem written by one of the students himself.
The sight poem, which was about "The Bath", was exceptionally well read. It was often humourous,
especially when one of the readers (EricPook) improvised and ended up amusing the entire audience.
The overall winner was Jonathan Ages whose poem was about a vampire. Kweku Kwofie, reading
the poem called "Colonel Fazackerley" finished second, followed by Alastair Cheng, using the poem
"Cats". However, everyone did a great job.
Finally, we would wish to extend a great thanks to Mr. Penton, from the senior school, for adjudi-
cating the poetry competition.

As you know, on October 25, 1993. there was a federal election in Canada. The Junior School de-
cided to have our own mock election.
The results were quite similar to that ot the actual election. The Liberals took the election by a land-
slide, with 62%. The Conservatives followed with a measly 18%, Reform with 13%. the NDP and the
Bloc tied with 3%, and there were only 2% spoiled ballots. This year the voter turnout was a major
improvement on the 1992 referendum, with an impressive 90%. Thanks for coming out!
Special thanks to Winston Bennett, Johan Berggren, Bryan Chan, Young Fan, and Bryan Chan for
organizing the event
(Editor's Note: Sorry, Andrew Mason!!)
This year's house music competition was extremely successful. All the houses came out with a strong
performance, but unfortunately only one house can win. The battle for first place was taken by the
Dragons with 433 points. The Goblins were a close second with 419 points, and the Hobbits placed
third with 406 points. In fourth place came the Wizards with a score of 335 points. We would like to
acknowledge Mr. Merritt for spending his valuable time organizing the competition, and Mr. Moyer
and Mr. Montgomery for adjudicating our performance. We thoroughly enjoyed the intermission per-
formance by Geoff Payne, Colin Keary-Taylor, and George Reid.

This year's speech competition was of a very high calipre. The guality ot the speeches was immense, and all the contestants recited
their creations very well
There was a wide range of topics, from Kurt Cobain. to Amnesty International, to the Montreal Expos. Unfortunately there can only
be one winner. This year the winner was Colin Burn from 6V. who related an interesting experience that occurred while he was com-
peting in the National Speedskating Competition in Fredericton. A close second was Andrew Mason who informed us about Amnesty
International, their triumphs, losses, and how we couia help their cause.
This year there was a tie for third between Jeff Payne who did a biography on Kurt Cobain, and Reia Adrian who told us about
cancer, and how it touches everybody's life at some time
On behalf of the Junior School, we would like to thank Mrs. Lahey for organizing this event, and Mrs Jowett for adjudicating the

This year an actor, commonly known as Mr. Monks, came to Ashbury to perform a rendition of Oliver
Twist, with students in grades 5, 6, and 7 as the actors. Thomas Houston played the leading role as
Oliver Twist, along with Mr. Monks from the Erewhon Theatre Company. The students each acted out
their roles, mostly as pickpockets, orphans and servants while Mr. Monks played four major roles. The
students only had twenty minutes to rehearse their parts and they did an extremely good job. Thomas
confesses that he did not even know what he was doing half of the time but he got through it. Another
interesting part was when the play concluded and Mr. Monks let members from the audience try on
the different costumes that he used in the performance. He also answered guestions and gave us
pointers on how to act when in a real play. Overall, this play was well acted and thoroughly enjoyed.

UNITED WAY RUN
Every year students trom Ashbury and Elmwood join together for a five kilometer run to raise money
for the United Way by finding sponsors.
This year the trek was particularly grueling but everybody finished the race showing good form and
For this run the school, through sponsors made by the students and teachers, made a total of $2,848.94.
Acknowledgments to Mr. Humphreys who collected $1,838 from 368 sponsors.

The 1994 Winter Olympics were a great success. It was the second time the Junior School has held the Games.
The Olympics consisted of eight events. There were the team sports; hockey and basketball. Also, there was
orienteering, wrestling, snow/ stationary biking, cross-country skiing, triathlon, and the final event, a four way tug
The Olympics were won by the Hobbits with 64 points. The Dragons finishea second with 41 points, closely fol-
lowed by the Goblins who had 40 points. The previous winners, the Wizards, were last, accumulating 35 points.
The triathlon race was particularly exciting. The athletes began with a one kilometer jog, succeeded by a one
kilometer skate, and finished with a one kilometer ski. Hugh Southee, of the Wizards, enjoyed a commanding
lead after the first leg. During the skating portion Hugh continued to lead the pack, while Rob Cushman, of the
Goblins, held a distant second. Then in the final stage, Rob skate - skiied extremely well and overtook Hugh to
take first place by half a lap.
The Junior School would like to thank Mr. G. Valentine for organizing the events, along with all the other staff
members who supervised the games. Also, we would like to thank the Senior School students who gave up their
afternoon officiating. Finally, we would like to extend our gratitude to the students who gave up their time to or-
ganize the second annual Winter Olympic Games.

to be courageous, honest and courteous, and to uphold the best traditions of the school. Thus in all
these ways, I will transmit this my school not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than
it was transmitted to me.

For the most part, the '93 Under-14 soc-
cer season was a success and an improve-
ment upon the '92 season. The grade eight
veterans were very privileged to have
some extremely talented players trom
grade seven. Right off the bat the team
went to a tournament held at Bishops Col-
lege School in Lennoxville, Quebec.
Throughout the tournament our play was
very strong and solid, which lead us to the
consolation victory. I must make mention
that during this and other trips we made
it a tradition to stop and eat at "Barby-Barn
Ribs and Chicken" restaurant in Montreal.
On this occasion Mr. King demonstrated
his monstrous appetite by devouring the
whole hog (12 large ribs] with a side order.
The team played in a challenging
league for the remainder of the season.
We were off to a nervous start at the be-
ginning of the league season, but, towards
the end of the year, we pulled together as
a powerful scoring force.
Every single member of this soccer team
benefitted and raised their level of skill from
this experience. On behalf of the entire
team I would like to thank Mr. Valentine,
Mr. King, and Mr. Hearn, for their time and

This year the Under-13 soccer team was
very fortunate to have the opportunity to
travel to Victoria, British Columbia, to play
in a tournament. On our way, we stayed
with families from Maple Ridge School in
Vancouver. The next day on the field when,
to our surprise, Maple Ridge School called
out, "Wow, they have shin pads and
While in Vancouver we visited Science
World and a salmon hatchery.
Our next stop on the trip through British
Columbia was Victoria, where we stayed
with families from St. Michael's University.
Here we played our first tournament. After
a day of competition, we remained unde-
feated by beating Crescent College 3-2.
Unfortunately, our second day of soccer
was not as successful as the first. An unpre-
dicted loss to Selwyn House kept us out of
the final round of play. On our last day in
the tournament, we tied Ridley College,
which gave us a sixth place finish.
After departing Victoria on a midnight
flight, we arrived home safely. On behalf
of the team, I would like to thank Mr. Val-
entine and Mr. King for coaching us
throughout the season and organizing a
trip which we all enjoyed and gained from.

The '93 soccer season was busier than
most for the Under- 12 soccer team. We
played in two tournaments and had one
The first tournament that we played in
was held at Ashbury. For a team which
hadn't had much time to practice we did
very well, winning two games, losing one,
and tying the other.
The second of our two tournaments was
held at Lower Canada College (LCC). Our
first game, which we won, was against Sel-
wyn House. We lost to LCC in the second
and final game.
The last game of the season was against
Turnbull. Our offence was very strong and
our defence was solid, helping us to out-
score them six to one.

U-1 2 BASKETBALL
The under 13 basketball team had a suc-
cessful season. We attended two tourna-
ments, the first of which was at Selwyn
We played four games (one exhibition
game). Our opponents were from all over
Montreal and our first game was against
Selwyn House. We beat them. Later that
day we played Brebeuf and we won
again. Our last game was with St. Eudistes,
and it was a close game. With five seconds
left they scored to beat us by one point
which put us in second place overall,
Our next tournament was hosted by Cres-
cent School in Toronto. This, as well, was
a very successful tournament for us.
We won our first game against Hillfield,
and also won our next game against Cres-
cent. We continued our winning streak with
a win over Royal Saint-Georges College.
The championship game was Ashbury
v.s. Royal Saint-Georges. They beat us
soundly. We were disappointed because
we lost our M.V.P. to a sprained ankle in
the first half.
We were pleased with our season and
we had a good time. On behalf of the un-
der 13 basketball team, we would like to
thank Mr. Street and Mr. Merritt for out-
standing coaching and their time, which
lead us to our very successful season.

The U-1 2 basketball team had a success-
ful season. Our first trip was to Selwyn
House. Our first game was against our
hosts, but unfortunately we lost the game
by a narrow margin. Then our luck
changed by beating LCC. Our next two
games were both unsuccessful as we lost
to Royal St. Georges and to a community
team called Westmount Lakers. Thus, we
returned slightly disappointed.
Our next tournament brought us back to
Montreal where we were hosted by LCC.
First, we lost to Selwyn House but then we
won against LCC's number two team. Af-
ter this game, Andrew Burns won the shoot-
ing contest. The tournament ended with a
close loss to St. Pat's.
The year's final trip was to Toronto. We
had to be at the train station by 4:45 a.m.
for the train which left at 6 a.m. On the train,
Kris Piuva commented on the water that
tasted like toilet water. When we arrived
at our destination, we played against John

staged a huge comeback. Our next op-
ponents were St. Georges, whom we beat.

On a beautiful October afternoon, the
cross-country team drove to Sedburg for
our annual cross country meet. The com-
petitors were placed into four major
groups: Junior, Intermediate, Bantam, and
The cross-country run was 3 1/2 km long
and seeing as it had rained the day
before, it was necessary to jump over many
puddles. In addition, there were many hills
and lots of mud, which kept us working
The finish was very exciting due to a long
downhill stretch. Maintaining control was
very difficult at this point, causing several
wipeouts. The whole team placed well in
all of their categories and the coach, Mr.

effort.' Our top place was second, in Ban-
tam, by Henry Maier.

This year the Junior School had an excel-
lent hockey team. Our team consisted of
some very skilled players from both house
leagues and competitive teams. Our
coaches, Mr. King and Mr. Valentine, were
very dedicated, taking us to the rink every
odd day. Also, we met for a period of time
at the coldest and smallest arena in Ot-
tawa, the Belldome.
The high point of our season was when
we went to Lower Canada College. In
Montreal, we stayed at a fantastic hotel,
"Ruby Foo's." Our first game, against Jean-
Eudes, was very exciting. After the first per-
iod we were trailing 0-2 but managed to
come back and win 4-3. Special mention
goes to Kevin Massie and Matt Lyman for
some tremendous goaltending. That night,
we went back to B.B. Barns with much to
celebrate after our win. This meant we
would have to play Upper Canada Col-
lege in the last game. We ended up losing
5-3 although it was one of our best finishes
against U.C.C. and our best finish ever in
the tournament. On behalf of the whole
team, I would like to thank Mr. King and
Mr. Valentine for a great season.

This year Ashbury sent two excellent
rugby teams to Bishob's annual 7-a-side
Bantam rugby tournament. .
The bus trip to Bishop's took five and a
half hours. The bus driver got lost and went
down a snowmobile trail before realizing
his mistake; eventually, we reached the
motel after asking for directions three times.
The next morning, the Ashbury 'A' team
played our first game against Bishop's, win-
ning 33-0. The next game pitted the 'A'
team against St. Thomas. They beat us 14-5.
In the following game, we got a victory, the
score being 17-5, against Selwyn House 'A'.
The final and most grueling game saw us
come up against L.C.C. Despite a great
defensive game, we lost 14-5, thus placing
us third in the tournament.

To win the World Series of ninety-three,
Teamwork and good players would be the key.
Alomar, Borders, Molitor, and White,
All helped the Blue Jays to win the fight.
The Blue Jays won the Eastern Division,
The next step they faced made the decision.
The White Sox for the pennant they beat.
World Series now - or was it defeat?
The White Sox were beaten and now at last,
The Jays had a chance at a second-round
To the World Series again they would go,
Was this going to be their second big show?
The famous Phillies was the team to beat,
The bleachers were full - not one empty seat.
The first game they won - the second they lost.
They just had to win whatever the cost!!
After five games it stood three games to two,
Oh, what were the Blue Jays going to do?
It was Carter's big blast that won the game,
And the Blue Jays go down in baseball fame.
To win the World Series of ninety-three,
Teamwork and good players would be the key.

On a cold winter's night in a downtown street;
An orphan looks in the bakery window.
Through the glass he feels the heat,
Watching the people come and go.
He stands watching quietly,
Through the window of the shop.
Staring at the food, all he can see
Food is stacked from bottom to top
He walks to the door and turns the knob,
His clothes are in tatters as he walks in.
He offers the clerk to do a job.
The clerk accepts, tells him to sort the bins.
The pay for his job is a meal and ride,
To a place that he can spend the night.
A place that's warm and dry inside,
Somewhere that has heat and light,
His hunger is gone and he is warm.
The clerk has phoned an orphanage.
He brings him there, and is assigned to a dorm
His name is written on a page.
He is no longer on the streets,
He can sleep and eat in here.
He does not sleep on the ground but under
He no longer lives in fear.
Another orphan on the streets,
Looks in the window of a shop.
Another orphan on the streets,
Staring at store shelves from bottom to top.

He jumps up in his black latex suit and swings his
sword. It hits the enemy's chest and sparks tly out.
Oh no, he's really hurt now -- look at the sparks. I
mean, when was the last time you were hit in the sto-
mach with a sword and sparks tlew out? And why
do those odd little grey people in skintight suits make
infantile noises with their tongues. I wonder why a
woman who has horns and a super telescope and
ives on the moon speaks faster than her lips move.
The real guestion is; how can monsters be
made from Play-
Dough(?) The end is al-
ways the same; they
turn into a big robot
and kill the bad guy.
But they have to wait
until they're really
"hurt" before they do
turn into the robot, to
waste time of course.
Why don't they just use the robot from the beginning,
it would make the dumb show go a whole lot guicker,
but oh yeah, they can't because some people sup-
posedly like this show. I also wonder how they jump
that high. Do they really have to say the names of
their weapons before they use them, and do they
have time? They must freeze time or something. I sup-
pose they all just happened to be teenagers who
were experts in martial arts. How does the city get
rebuilt after the big, bad guys knock down the buil-
dings? And how does that woman throw a staff from
the moon with that kind of accuracy to make some-
one grow? I don't think the show makes children more
violent because no one in their right mind would be-
lieve the junk in this show, not ever a toddler. I do
think it should be cancelled though, not because it
is too violent, but because of its stupidity. They should
have a law which bans shows like this, such as: an
I.Q. of 2 is needed to create a show. Or even: no
shows with geeky, little teenagers who think they're

Then the graceful predator, the owl swoop-
ing silently, instinctively, unnoticed cutting
through the black night like a hot knife
through butter, pretending now to be a tree,
now a bush, now a dark piece of bark, while
its unsuspecting prey scurries through the for-
est. It swoops, then watches the small rodent as it be-
gins to scurry towards safety, and as it stalks silently, its
blood runs cold and its sharp claws clasp the tree on
which it was perching. Then suddenly, it lunges back
in to the air as aggressively as a ferocious tiger. It plum-
mets sharply towards the helpless rodent, there is a high
pitched squeel, and the sprawling mouse tries to strug-
gle free before the owl punctures the rodent's mid-

Not So Mighty Andrew at the Bat
Things looked quite grim in Ottawa,
On that soggy windy day.
The score stood two to four,
With but one inning left to play.
Mikey popped to shortstop.
And Dennis died at first,
The coach began to grumble
The players feared the worst
But Eric hit the ball,
To stop the parents moanin'.
And stood upon first base,
As big and proud as Conan.
Now Nicky batting eighth,
Advances to the plate
(He bats a one six five).
We know that's not so great.
But little Nicky hit the ball,
As hard as Nicky can,
And round and round the bases,
Eric and Nicky ran,
The throw came from the outfield,
But safety was insured,
For Nicky stood on second,
With Eric safe at third.
Now standing on the sidelines,
Is one frightened little hitter,
Though scared he has to go up next,
Because he is no quitter.
So Andrew walks up to the plate,
His body filled with fear,
And at his cruddy misery,
The other team did jeer.
They pointed his little arms,
Which just increased his woes,
They said, "You'll never hit the ball,
With just a pair of those!"
And now the pitcher throws the ball,
Like a bullet from a gun,
Andy say's "I didn't see that!"
The umpire say's "Strike one!"
Now the ball is flying,
From its home upon the mound,
It rockets faster than fast,
At super sonic sound.
Andy thinks: "What am I to do?"
He swings and cleaves the air in half,
The umpire says,
And now the players begin to boo,
The crowd does the same.
They said "The kid with the little arms,
Is going to lose the game!"
The pitcher leans and heaves the ball,
The spheroid clean and white,
But Andrew cannot see it,
His eyes are closed quite tight
He opens one lid cautiously.
And takes a mighty swing.
Time seems to slow down to a crawl.
As he thinks of many things.
He remembers the lessons learned,
Throughout his younger years,
Of how a person, everyone,
Must confront their greatest fears.
Now one thing sticks in his mind,
That winners never quit.
And you should learn this lesson well.
Because Andrew got a hit!

There was a great gust of snow.

So Mrs. Claus hid there, under the toys;

She peeped her head out, there was something to

so we can get finished guickly, and leave!

At that time, we had paid no attention to the warning the device had given us or the extra twenty sec-
onds we had spent in the parking lo1. We were speeding down highway 417 and aPout seventy-five metres
ahead of us we saw a Plue car swerve into our lane. It collided head-on with the car in front of us. At the same
moment, to avoid hitting the Plue car, a large grey Ford had turned so sharply into the soft shoulder that it
had flipped over in mid-air and landed upside-down in the ditch.
We Praked immediately and slid to the side of the road. Kunal, the elder of my friends, threw open his door
and jumped out to see if he could help. Arup, my other friend, and I jumped after him. There was chaos. Smoked
filled the air. The cars of the head-on collision were crumpled and the passengers were unconscious. I re-
memPer feeling helpless. There were injured people only feet away and there was
nothing any of us could do. We ran to the Plue car alongside two men and a woman who had all stopped
to help. The crushed hood was smoking furiously and was Pound to Purst into flame at any second. One of
the men tried the hood Put found it too hot to touch. Arup and I went to the other car and attempted to open
any door we could. Only the trunk and the left rear door would open. The driver's legs were jammed up against
the dash and I rememPer his trying to say something.
We went to the ditch to see if the people in the flipped car were injured. Kunal and another man comPined
to rip off the driver side door. An elderly couple rolled out. We helped them out of the ditch and got them
to a car to sit down. They were not severely hurt. After what seemed like forever, the police arrived. We were
told to leave our names and phone numPers and Pe prepared to answer any questions if they needed to
verify anything. We got Pack into our car and left.
I rememPer thinking to myself later aPout the little device and its answer. Also it occurred to me that if we
had not spent those extra twenty seconds, we could have Peen hospitalized or dead. That night I realized
how short life could Pe. I always think to myself, "I'll live until I'm eighty or ninety; I've got my whole life ahead
of me." Now, I'm not too sure. We hear aPout it every day. Until then a traffic accident had only Peen the thing
slowing us down or the reason I gave when I was late. The next day I read that the man in the Plue car had
died in the night. It was as though I had known him; almost as if I had let him down.

On with The Game
The Real Mikhail.
the one nobody saw
coming around the outside
looking for his target
steaming towards the QB
standing tall, oblivious
to the 300 lbs. of brawn
racing towards him
then just a spot
in the corner of his eye
before he could realize
what was happening
his body was shattered
by the sheer impact
up into the air he flew
no control over anything
his body twisting
in ways unimaginable
after the twisting
and flailing of limbs
his head collides with the ground
a crumpled heap lays on the turf
not moving, no sign of life
just laying there with his eyes
open, frozen in fear
fear that he could not feel anything
no pain, no nothing
the throngs of witnesses
stand in a hush, no one moves, no one talks
at home millions of viewers
see a listless, languid body
surrounded by legs and feet
the silence is- broken
only by the far off sound of an ambulance
the crowd then sits down
and waits for the game to go on.

Mikhail was just a young man when the war broke out. He
had been a carefree lad who did not give much thought or
effort to what he said or did. That was the Mikhail who ran with
a lively gait, the Mikhail with dancing brown eyes and a shock
of blond hair. Now that part of him seemed to have left so many
He had lived a hard life since that blissful time. Everyday he
lived in fear for his life. He had to take care of his wife and
kids, and take care of himself. Everyday he risked his life to get
just the tiniest morsel of food to support his family and got it
anyway he could -- he begged, pleaded, cajoled, even stole;
but this was the war. Laws did not matter now; Mikhail just
wanted to make sure his family survived. Yes, he persisted; he
persisted to make sure those merciless soldiers never found
them; he persisted in finding food and clothes; he persisted
because he knew that he had no choice.
All of this fighting -- fighting his dwindling health, fighting with
the fear that screamed at him whenever he saw The Enemy;
all of it had only made him tell himself that he could do it.
Yes, he could survive and his family would survive; he had
vowed to himself he would never rest until the war was over
and they were safe. But his persistent fighting had also made
him no longer the lively man he had once been. He walked
over the dusty ground and along broken-down homes,
hunched over, his clothes in tatters and his hair an unkempt
Mikhail always took care to travel at night; yet twice he had
been seen by the patrols. He lost no time waking his family,
for he and his wife watched in shifts, and they ran. It seemed
they ran for hours, but they never gave up. Sometimes his chil-
dren lost hope, but he spurred them on; he told them about
how all the wrongs will be made right once they were out of
There were times when, purely by chance, Mikhail met old
friends on this quest for freedom. They would talk of the old
days, and share whatever food or information they could before
going their separate ways. Only when Mikhail spoke with them
did he realize how much he had changed; he was so differ-
ent from the unaware, easy-going youth he had been on that
fateful day he first heard news of the war.
But he turned away from all those thoughts
now; he had a family to support, he was
going to have to look ahead, never lose
heart; or all he had worked so hard for,
persisted so long for, would be in vain.

Their faces saddened
Angered and maddened.
Sickened and frustrated and yet
Glimmers of hope and desire emerged from the
Their disturbing surroundings.
The mud, the chilling cold.
The horrible rats who steal and kill for small things
Emerge from nature's mold.
The huge cannon,
Rears its head in a terrible roar,
And fear arises when the shells fell, crashing, killing
And it killed all to well

The smell, the scent
Of figures mangled and bent.
Blood flowed in huge clods
A sergeant got up and yelled, "You Dodo!"
As he found his brother's body
Could these be the lads of '14
In bright-coloured uniforms,
Cheering and yelling patriotically,
God save the King?

The Forgotten Face
The cheerful face,
exposing the glory of the achievement,
the puck Puried in the net.
Excitement betrayed the victor,
hailed by all.
The goalie's eyes;
focused on the puck.
The red light
flashing, stinging brightly
while despair and misery looms;
on their feet;
inspired, exhilarated, spirited
cheering and screaming jubilantly.
The crowd, proudly acknowledging
amidst a fuzzy, thick rain of hats.
The lone, unassuming hand,
in the air immediately,
pointing to the net
The striped man.
quickly, quietly doing his job,
signalling the goal;
noticed by none.
A lone figure, poised,
away from the celePration
Without reaction to the
cold eyes burning with
anger, rage, want.
If looks could kill . . .
The enviou.s, covetous
glances, desperately longing for
revenge and victory
Wondering why him and not me?

Summer has come with fresh green grass
The blue birds are singing "The Spring showers have
Summer is and extravagant season
I love it without rhyme or reason
Fall is a sign that winter is coming
You can no longer here the blue birds humming
I can teel a real cold breeze
And all of a sudden you start to freeze
Winter is here and everyone's skiing
You know this because the blue birds are fleeing
Winter has come, say bye to those ducks
Get rid of your baseballs and bring out the pucks
Spring is coming and I know why
The birds are flying with their wings spread wide
You can tell Spring is near
Cause the ice turns to water off the seaside's pier
Summer. Spring. Winter, and Fall
Near and far the birds all call
These are all extravagant seasons
I love them without rhymes or reasons

A Deep Sea Fishing Trip (an excerpt)
The forty foot glistening white fishing boat moved slowly away
from the small marina. The stench of fish filled my nostrils and
the smell of the sea gave me an auspicious feeling and my sen-
ses were overwhelmed by the natural wealth of the forests off the
starboard side. Huge mansions with beautiful garaens and ar-
tistic architecture gleamed on the other side of the wide chan-
nel in the sunlight. A red sign rising out of the water to our right
read, "Caution: Manatees." I had never seen a real manatee
and I hoped to see one but to my disappointment none chose
We left the harbour through a narrow channel surrounded by
pelicans, most of which sat contentedly watching us pass under
the low bridge that guarded the small inlet. The Captain navi-
gated the narrow tributary with the ease of many years of ex-
perienced seamanship. As we left the protected waters of the
harbour, mammoth waves rose up to nine feet in height. The ship
rocked violently in the choppy seas and I was a little embarrassed
to admit I felt slightly nauseous. I was embarrassed because I
spend so much time swimming and playing in the ocean; to my
relief the feeling soon passed.
