Royal Saint George's College
120 Howland Avenue
Throughout this past year
R.S.G.C. has undergone many
transformations. We have
endeavoured to remember these
changes in this year's yearbook.
The "Sign" theme throughout
the pages of The Georgian
expresses not only the
construction of 1996/1997 but
also change in general. From a
new head master to a whole new
attitude in R.S.G.C, the college
has taken a new direction
towards an even brighter future.
It's not over yet. At present,
plans are being made for further
alterations in the coming years;
and so the stop sign on the back
cover symbolizes not the end,
but rather the end of the
A Brief History of the College
The forming of Saint George's
College was the inspiration of Mr.
John Bradley and a group of Anglican
laymen associated with the Toronto
Diocesan Choir School, a summer
school for choirboys. A committee
was therefore formed and plans
developed to establish a full-time
day school with a strong emphasis on
music. A private Act incorporating
Saint George's College was passed
on March 31, 1961 by the
Ontario Legislature. The
school admitted its first
seventy-two pupils in 1964.
In 1989. Queen Elizabeth 11
granted the college the right
to prefix the title "Royal" to
its name. Royal St. George's
College bought the site it is
positioned upon in 1996.

Head Masters Address - Prize Day
Members of the Board, honoured
guests, fellow colleagues, students and
members of the graduating class; another
school year has come and gone for the
distinguished group of young men who we
have just honoured. Gentlemen, it's the
reality of your final year of high school. It is
your final year as students at RSGC and it
is the beginning of a brand new chapter in
It has been quite a year. It has
been a year of construction and fund
raising, with more to come. We have and
will continue to address our physical
needs, in a logical, efficient fashion. The
junior school will be rebuilt this summer,
with many further exciting plans to follow
in subsequent years. The fund raising
success has been quite staggering - a clear
tribute to the value the RSGC community
places on their school. I look forward to
continued success as more and more people
leam about and understand the exciting
future at RSGC.
But fundraising, bricks and mortar are
just a small, and quite frankly somewhat
irrelevant, part of what has happened this year.
Any attempt to summarize all that has taken
place would be inappropriate as it is impossible
to capture all the important aspects of this past
year. That being said, allow me to be personal
and simply say , I have loved it ! It has certainly
been the most challenging, fulfilling and
rewarding year of my professional life. In fact,
when I reflect back, in an attempt to capture a
true understanding, it all becomes quite
Leading this reality is the fact that
standing here as your headmaster, soon to be
principal, is an honour I hope I have not
underestimated. It is an honour to be here with
Jack Wright, the founding headmaster of RSGC.
Dr. Wright, you are a legend, and the quest to
make you proud of your school is something
that exists within all of us. Let me assure you.
the traditions and values you demonstrated in
founding this school will remain apart of RSGC
It is an honour to be here as a successor
to great men. I never knew John Allen, but I
certainly know John Latimer and I know how
deeply he feels about this school. I hope he is
It is an honour to be here representing
the RSGC staff. They have accepted the
challenge of working with a new headmaster
and further to that they have accepted the
challenge of striving for higher and higher
academic standards. There are many changes
being implemented at this school next year and
undoubtedly there will be further changes
forthcoming. These changes have been made
because we have a legacy. The past success
has presented us with the exciting opportunity
to move forward to continue building excellence
and to keep striving for higher and higher
standards in everything we do. None of this
would have been possible without the direct
input of so many caring staff. There have been
moments of disagreement, anguish, frustration
and I am sure at time disbelief, but the driving
force has been the advancement of the college.
The staff should be proud of their substantial
accomplishments. We are indeedalucky school.
Thank you staff.
It is an honour to be here in the presence
of many of the alumni, a group who have so
much respect for the past and history but who
believe in the excitement of the future.
Finally the greatest and most important
honour is to be here in front of the 1997
graduating class. They will inform you in your
first headmaster" s course, that when you join a
school for your first year you should discount
the graduating class. They don't know you,
and you don't know them. They won't feel a
connection and your efforts would be much
better spent developing a relationship with the
younger grades. Well, gentlemen, you broke
with tradition and I am grateful for your effort
to make me feel a part of your school. And as
you depart, my wish is that in looking at the
founding traditions of the college; the influence
of those such as Dr. Wright and Mr. Latimer;
the feelings of the Alumni; and the relationships
you have had with the staff; you will be able to
say RSGC has had an important impact on your
life. You are leaving with some powerful
weapons in your arsenals as you go forth to
What you have experienced and
hopefully what you will take with you is a sense
of commitment. You have seen it with so many
of your teachers, you have seen it with
the belief shown in you from your
parents and 1 hope you realize the
value of such acommitment. You are
now going to experience the reality of
having to make so many constant
choices. Hopefully, your experience
here has made it easier for you to make
In particular I hope you will
always be aware of two of the greatest
strengths this school has to offer.
The first is that there is a legitimate
lack of pretentiousness; people tend
to actually respect people no matter
who they are. and I hope you will
continue with this tradition.
Secondly, you are graduating from a
school where you have learned to accomplish
more with less. What a wonderful skill; a true
competitive advantage, something you have
learned from our staff.
Finally I say thanks to the graduating
class and in thanking them I am thanking the
entire RSGC community; my family, the staff,
the board, parents, old boys, friends and
students. Thanks gentlemen for being an
important part of a school's history; thank you
for teaching me what a wonderful place RSGC
is; thanks for showing me what being a
"Georgian" is all about; and thank you for
building upon all your successes and making
us look good.
We will all be thinking of you, we all
hope you will stay in touch and so go forth
knowing our thoughts and prayers are with
Thank you and God bless.
Message for the Yearbook
A yearbook is a celebration. It is full of
memories of a past year, and this particular
edition will be particularly important as it serves
as a true reminder of a first year for a new
A yearbook is also a tribute to the skill
and determination of so many of our students.
This year' s editors, Asad Ladha and Ian Roberts,
with plenty of consulting support from Alex
Moniz-Brown have accepted a challenge, and
have produced a superb product. I would like
to acknowledge the work and effort of Mrs.
Ruth Hall, our teacher librarian and yearbook
advisor. Her endless energy, enthusiasm and
support enabled this project to finish w ith the
success it has enjoyed. Congratulations Mrs.
Hall. Asad. Alex, and Ian. Read on and enjoy.
There is so much to remember.
Junior School Report
"There is not a teacher on T
staff who has not at some time
been described by parents as the
best teacher their son has ever
had, while others have vihfied the
very same teacher as the worst
educator experienced by their
How can this be? Why is
such a contradiction so common?
I have often said this to
parents and usually the statement
has been greeted with polite
incredulity. All ofus believe that
there are good teachers and bad
ones. The great irony is that it is
often surprisingly difficult to
For the most part, parents
decide on the competence of a
teacher based on what their child
tells them, or what they hear other
children or parents say, or what
they have experienced on meeting
that teacher. If you think about
your response to a given teacher
and how you came to this
conclusion, I believe you will find
that you have based your opinion
on oral communication, not what
you have seen take place in the
classroom. I have yet to
experience a perfect teacher
(although some have come close ),
and I have only rarely come across
a truly bad teacher (never at
RSGC, should I avow! ). Since,
therefore, almost all teachers have
strengths and weaknesses, it is
relatively easy for a boy who likes
a teacher to focus on things the
teacher does well, or to
concentrate on the limitations of
those towards whom he is less
But the issue is much more
than like or dislike. There appears
to be a meeting of teachers'
personalities and the learning style
of a given student that can
facilitate learning or lead to
resistance. One might argue that
all teachers should be able to
adjust their teaching style to match
the needs of their students and so
they should, but behind everything
is the interpersonal chemistry that
affects the learning atmosphere.
At one time, I was involved
in a study that was to pick out
■■^ excellent teachers, and then to
analyze ever movement of their
classes to try to quantify what
works in a successful teacher.
The study bogged down at the
initial selection - we, and the
schools we were in, could not
agree on who these excellent
There have been teachers
whom I believe to be quite weak,
yet there seemed to be some
children to whom they related
and whom they helped to learn
when all other teachers had failed.
Equally, I have had parents
severely criticize a teacher yet,
when I watch him teach, he proves
to be an outstanding educator
with carefully crafted lessons, full
involvement of all pupils, and a
positive and effective classroom
I find this psychological
interaction between teacher and
student to be fascinating. I ask all
parents to consider, when they
are expressing a doubt about the
competence of a teacher, that they
may only be describing the lack of
coherence between their own
child's personality and that of the
Senior School Report
I The 1996-97 school year was
filled with visual images . . . images
that capture the certainty of the
future! Those snapshots include
construction; a new Headmaster
addressing the school in the chapel;
the Senior soccer team playing on
the muddy pitch of Hillfield in the
national championship; satyrs as
they clopped their way around
Ketchum Hall in The Trackers of
Oxyrynchus; the gymnasium
packed with desks and students for
examinations; the sight of the library
volunteers unpacking the books
for the new stacks; ball hockey; the
Speakers Union mounting another
successful Saucer tournament;
breakfast with the Breakfast Club
(twice); the jubilation of the U16
baseball team as IS AA champions;
the premiere of Countdown - the
media class's film project; the swirl
of colour and sound at the Prize
Day ceremony at St. James
Cathedral as Dr. Jack Wright,
founding Headmaster, presented
the "Lifers" and the Wright medal
to the recipients. There is a certain
peace which comes from the sense
of history inaction: what has gone
before is valued and treasured yet
the College continues to chart a
course of growth into the future.
My memory is packed by
impressions of demolition
"bobcats" as the construction crew
took out the main entrance to the
Senior School and started the four
month parade-of-trades. Water
(often at the most inconvenient
times), dust, welding smoke,
exhaust from masons' saws, roofing
tar and paint marked the progress
of the addition. And then, in mid-
November, the tumult ceased as
the project ended on time and on
budget! The construction was a
clear statement by the College -
"We are now, and always will be,
a force in the independent education
of young men in Toronto"! I give
my praise to the students for
accommodating the disruption, to
the staff for delivering a first-rate
programme in spite of the tumult,
to the parents who have contributed
financially to the success of the
building programme and to the
Board of Governors for their strong
leadership demonstrated by the
undertaking of the 'project' this
Prize Day highlighted for me
the impact of 'the individual' on the -
future. One hundred and thirty four
young men were acknowledged for
their personal successes this year;
forty seven young men received their
graduation diplomas; and 70% of the
grad class was recognized as Ontario
Scholars for averages of 80% or
higher. The graduating class
commissioned a beautiful mural for
a wall in the new stairwell. Thank
you for the remarkable testimonial
to the value that you derived from the
College! As a class, you contributed
significantly to the growth of RSGC
through academics, sports, arts,
community service and citizenship.
Prize Day also allowed the College
to honour two of its staff. Mrs.T-Bu
Grieve, as she enters her retirement,
was recognized for her years of
service as a teacher of art, English
and French and Mr. Richard Nakatsu,
as he leaves RSGC for new
challenges in teaching, was
acknowledged for his immeasurable
contributions in the classroom, on
the volleyball and basketball courts,
and the daily operations of the
College. RSGC will miss the
combined energies of these 47
graduating students and the two staff
Finally, I would like to thank
the yearbook staff and Mrs. Hall for
their incredible efforts in delivering
this edition of THE GEORGIAN.
The hours (even months!) of your
efforts will capture our memories in
hard copy. Well done.

R.S.G.C. Alumni Association
This photo shows the current head of the Alumni Association Mr. David Gordon
meeting with the Grade 13 graduating class to discuss their future position with the
alumni. As well he handed out a booklet that gives students important infoniiation on
housing and many other important facts about university. The Alumni even provided
the grads with a copy of the landlord tenant act!
This year in sports we saw the alumni competing
with the current Georgians for name and honour.
There was a challenge made by Jason Taylor( York
House Captain) to the alumni that if the team ol
Georgians were to beat the alumni in hockey, then
the alumni's team captain would have to wear his
sweaty unwashed hockey shirt. Unfortunately foi
the whole school the Georgians lost, man did the
shirt stink. Fortunately the Georgians won on tht
basketball courts. The Alumni sports day is just ont
of many examples of what the alumni does for tht
school and its grads. There is also a firmly estabiishec
system designed to help new grads as they move oi
to university. This includes a university adviso
who is currently going to a given student ' s uni versit;
after graduating from the school. The alumni i
now taking a new direction by expanding onto th
World Wide Web in the hope of broadening thei
scope. The alumni is also helping with the currer
plans to expand the Junior School by "investing i
yourcampaign." Finally, the alumni also organize
an informative careers day in which previous grad
come back to the school in order to discuss the
professions, to give the students ideas of what t
pursue in university.
Another year in the hfe of the College has
passed. As the RSGC Guild winds down its year, I" d like
to take time to reflect upon and report to you, some of
the highlights of our 1996-97 term.
The Guild is the College's parent volunteer
organization. We planned many social and fundraising
projects throughout the year hoping to enhance College
life and create some revenue in the process. Some
events were purely social and aimed at welcoming new
parents - New Parent's Reception (September)
organized with the College; New Mother's Dinner
(October); and the Confirmation Reception (January).
The Grade 8 Graduation Tea took place after Junior
School Prize Giving, this past year on June 10. The
Guild also provided volunteers to serve as Tour Guilds
for prospective Junior School parents. Library
volunteers helped to organize the Birthday Book
program which raised $4,500 in revenue forthe Library.
When November arrived, Poinsettia forms were mailed
out. Poinsettia plants,wreaths and Christmas Trees were
delivered in early December. Our Guild shop. The
Dragon's Lair, opened in August with back to school
items and has been open every school day since. This
year we carried several new styles of sweatshirts, vests,
polar fleece blankets, silver cufflinks, money clips and
crested picture frames, just to name a few of the
popular items. The Dragon' s Lair was reorganized with
new storage space and shelving, thanks to the Latner
family. The Used Uniform shop functions out of adjacent
space and has benefitted from this, since shop volunteers
Some of the Guild at the Guild Luncheon
Mrs. Robinson (Guild President)
are able to help boys with
uniform needs every day, rather
than only a few times a year as
we did in the past.
The RSGC Guild has been
active with Interguild, (an
organization of all local
Independant Schools' Parents'
Groups) . We attended several
workshops and Suppliers days
throughout the year.
At our Annual General
Meeting we were happy to
report that the revenue from our
fund raising efforts would be
allocated to the College in the
Headmaster's Fund $6,000
J.R.Latimer Pubhc Speaking, Jr.
& Sr., Jr. School Music Prizes,
Capital Campaign $25,000
(Totalling $60,000 in three
Our last event of the year
was the Used Textbook Sale,
held on June 1 1 . This was an
important source of funds for
the Guild with 50% of the sales
going to the Guild and 50%
going to students' accounts.
On reflection, it has been a
successful and energetic year. We thank all
volunteers who participated and all parents
who attended events or purchased plants,
books, uniforms and Dragon' s Lair items.

Thank you Mr. Hannaford, Board

I remember one day, near the end
of the year, Mrs. Hall was desperately
trying to assemble all the graduating lifers
for a photo to put in the year book. When
we were finally ready to take the picture
Tim Boyce said something that really
made an impact on me. He said, and I
quote, "Ten years boys." A very simple
and obvious statement, the kind of thing
you would expect to hear from Tim, but it
really made me stop and think just how
long ten years really is. There are students
currently at St. George's that weren't
even born when I entered grade four. I
think you know that you've been here a
long time when you start talking to the
younger .students like a grandfather talking
to his grandchildren. You can say things
like, "Back in my day there wasn't a
grade three or a lacrosse team. There
was no computer lab or 'Royal' before
St. George's and what's with all these
fancy portables and labs. Whatever
happened to a good old classroom with a
desk for the teacher and a chalkboard at
the front?" So much can happen in ten
years and so much did. My time at St.
George's is full of fond memories and
good times; unfortunately that's all that' s
left of my time here. ..memories. But I
think of myself as one of the lucky ones.
As I look back at my ten years at R.S.G.C.
I realize that some years were good. ..and
others were better. During every single
one of those ten years there wasn't any
other school that I would rather have
gone to. When my parents told me that I
was going to St. George's College I cried
like a new-born baby but now I can't
thank them enough for giving me the
opportunity to go to this school. So rarely
do you find something that is perfect for
you but I found that special something in
All throughout my time here. I
always loved to represent my school in
whatever way I could. It didn't matter
if it was a sports game, a debating
tournament or a math competition, I was
always honoured to say I was from
Royal St. George's College. Then last
year I was told I was going to represent
our school as head prefect. I had heard
horror stories about the work load and
responsibility of this position but I
couldn ' t help but be excited and overjoyed
to be given this opportunity of a lifetime.
I knew that this year would be one of the
most memorable years of my life and it
truly has been.
I learned very early in the year
that this job included an incredible amount
of stress and pressure. The kind of
pressure that a single man couldn' t handle
alone. Luckily, alone was the last thing
I was this year. So many people helped
me get through those tough times and
kept working hard throughout the year
and I suppose now is the time to thank
them. I'd like to thank: My family. Mom,
Dad, Chris and David, for always being
there with words of support and
encouragement; all my friends in school
and classmates for making school more
fun than it should be, all my friends out of
school, especially Ashleigh, Kaeli and
Leigh, for never letting me get down on
myself and always making sure I was
still having fun, and last but not least, the
eleven other prefects for doing such a
wonderful job this year and making my
job a whole lot easier. Matt and Drew,
you guys did an amazing job this year
organizing and promoting all our social
functions. Pank, you always made sure
our ever-so-delicate financial matters
were always in balance and under
control. Steve and Tim, a wonderful
athletic banquet, cross-country run, swim
meet and track and field day can be
attributed to your efforts this year. Mike,
J.T., George and Rob, you guys
maintained house and school spirit which
is a much more difficult job than most ol
us know and finally, Greg and Rob, youi
prefect duties weren't quite as defined
as the others but you still contributed in
every way you could and that
accomplishment may be greater than all
the others. The fact is, at the beginning
of the year, many people thought this'
year's prefects were too different from
one another to work well together but b\
the end of the year everyone realisec
that we had become a well-oiled prefeci
machine that could handle any duty thai
was thrown at us.
At the beginning of the year, thi
prefects were pretty much thrown righ
into the middle of things. R.S.G.C
traditionally has the first school dance o
the year but it seems this year SAC tncc
to beat us to the punch having thci
home-coming dance only four week;
into the school year. Well, not to be ou
done, we started organizing our schoo
dance to be held three weeks into tht
school year. Needless to say, our danci
was bigger and better (and much mon
profitable) than anything SAC put oi
and this made me realize something \ or'
early in the year. We may goof arouiu
and procrastinate a little bit but when i
comes down to the wire, we .somehov
managed to get the job done. Of course,
it wasn't just the prefects who organized
everything. We had help from the entire
srad class. One of the most amazing
things this year was how the entire
graduating class managed to find some
way to contribute and help out. We had
A.J. running servers guild and Rob
dandling the university information. You
:ould always find Ian, Alex, Asad, John
ind Brian up in the library working on
the yearbook. Dak's never-ending quest
to save the world continued this year as
rie revitalized the environment club. Jeff
Enfield and Jake Thompson' s leadership
in house league was invaluable and you
:ould always depend on Glenn and Paul
Wong to sell pop at the school dances.
It's these contributions, not just by the
graduating class but by the entire student
^ody, that help make R.S.G.C. such a
I stand here and look out upon my
'entire graduating class and I see forty-
eight friends. I keep thinking to myself
hat I should be sad to leave you all and
naybe, once we've all gone on our
separate ways, I will be sad, but for now,
I'm not. I've been going to school with
iome of you for ten years and I've been
going to school with some of you for only
eight months but the memories I have
vvith all of you will last longer than a
natter of months or years. Those
Tiemories will last forever. So, how can
[ be sad when I look at any one of you
jnd remember all the good times we had
is a class and as friends? Everyone
<nows a school is not made by facilities
ind money. A school is made by the
seople in it and this school is full of some
af the finest young men I know. I
eonsider it an honour to be a member of
^uch a fine group of men and I know that
I can puff out my chest and be proud
when I tell people I am a member of the
1997 graduating class of Royal St.
When I talk about all the fine
people at R.S.G.C. I must include the
staff. This was my third headmaster in
10 years and he sure did have some big
shoes to fill. Mr. Hannaford filled those
shoes and has become so close with the
students and this school that it's hard to
believe that this was only his first year.
I would like to congratulate him for doing
such an excellent job this year and, with
Mr. Hannaford looking after things when
I leave, I'm confident that St. George's
will continue to improve and grow. But
where would we be without all the
teachers of R.S.G.C. to guide us and
educate us? I can't begin to speak of all
the things that these teachers have done
for me. Through both the junior and the
senior school, these people have been a
guiding light for me and they have never
let me down. They have not only taught
me math, science, English and history
but also manners, sportsmanship,
integrity and character. Here are these
people that influence us every day and
prepare us for all the challenges of
university and life and so often they go
unrecognized. These teachers have seen
and helped me grow for over half of my
life and without their leadership, support
and encouragement I would not have
become the person I am today. When
you get to the end of your high-school
career and you look back on all the
things you've done and all the things
you've accomplished you realize just
how much of acommitment is put forward
by your teachers and your advisors. So,
on behalf of all the students I would like
to tell the teachers that we are grateful
for your efforts and we thank you for
everything you've done for us.
Staff and students. These two
groups of people have given me so much
over the years that there is no way to
really thank them. They've become
such a part of my life that I consider
them part of my family. But now I'm
leaving my home away from home and
it's not an easy thing to do. It hurts to
leave part of your family behind because
you're also leaving part of yourself
behind. To have to say good-bye to all of
these people that have become such a
part of me doesn't seem fair but, as any
parent or teacher will tell you, life isn't
fair. So here we all are, getting pushed
down the road of life to bigger things at
university and beyond. Although this is
a road that must inevitably be traveled,
that doesn't mean we have to go willingly.
It's hard for me to understand and accept
that I will never be a student at R.S.G.C.
ever again. I will never write another
test, hand-in another assignment or write
another essay . I will never spike another
volleyball, shoot another basketball or
throw another lacrosse ball. I will never
sing another hymn, dance another dance
or attend another class. Perhaps it's
time I realised just how long "never"
really is. Well, since we won't be back
for quite a while, the grad class decided
to give St. George's something just to
remind you of our class. So here's our
little sumpin' sumpin'. We'd like to
thank Mr. Ian Leventhol for taking on
this project and this mural will be hung at
the bottom of the library stairs. A small
token from all of us to all of you. Well,
our time is at an end. Grad present has
been presented, grad prank has been
pulled off and graduation is finishing.
For the last ten years, I've woken up in
early September, put on my pants,
buttoned up my shirt and done up my tie
and I've marched down to 120Howland
Avenue for another year at St. George's
but next year... I won't. I'll be at a new
school with new people and new teachers
and I'll be starting from scratch. But
I'm not afraid or nervous because I
know that I've been prepared by the
best. I know I'll be able to carry on what
Royal St. George's College taught me
and succeed at whatever I do. I love this
school with all my heart but it's time I
moved aside and gave other people the
chance to represent this wonderful
school. So, finally, I ask you one small
favour. Please don't forget us St.
George's, because we will never forget
you. Thank you.
Since leaving Bay view Glen, and coming to Royal St. George's
College, my life has completely turned around. My work habits have
been better moulded, the friends I have made are awesome - the same
with the teachers. Especially Mrs. Mustard, Mr. Orlando, Mr. Kerr, Mr.
Timm, and Mr. Hannaford. Thanks for the best two years of my life ! ! !
North America has drifted 2.5 feet since I came to RSGC, and what a
ride it's been. Thank-you Mother and Father for supporting and conceiving
me. Leah who has been great to me ever since the age of 10. El Nino for many
lunches and fun times. Mr. D'Arcy for hours of support. Thank-you to my
classmates for all the ethnic jokes and nicknames. I won't forget you - All the
best. Always remember, the best way to get praise is to die.

My years at St. George's have been saturated with laughter and
improving knowledge. 1 learned the basics of chemistry in the lab under Dr.
Ska's watchful eye and on the Quebec trip (Gravol plus Nyquil equals
WHOOPEE!). In New York I learned the virtue of temperance (the crack-room
of despair) and the art of self defense, just grab the necklace and pull, (sorry
Burnett). And you can never say that we weren't exposed to culture, Bernard
Bieberstein's solo performance in the choir will always hold a special place in
Nor will I ever forget the Grad trip. Soccer on the beach (he's going to
kill someone) Burgers at Archie's. Crazy Moon, crazy locals, crazy kids
(Mentas! Mentas! Cerveza! Cerveza!)
1 owe a great debt to all the staff but I offer a special thanks to Mr.
Love who taught me the importance of fair play and for his liberal
interpretation of the rules of ball-hockey. To Mrs. Miller who has me hooked
on debating ( what have you released upon the world?) and to Mr, Orlando, a
fabulous advisor (Bell. Head. A.ss. Remove) who always managed to prevent a
swollen head and an inflated ego with a simple A&G question.
Well, this is it. I can't believe we're done, guys! To start, I'd like to thank all the
teachers here, who have given me areally good foundation to build on. Specifically Dr Skalinski.
J.^. Mr Schreiner. M P.™lin. Mr Rankin. Mr Keenan. Father Hill. VanHUGE. Big O. JRL.
Mr. D'Arcy. Mrs Miller, Mr Hann-iford .ind Mr. Holdsworth To Mr Love, I would like lo

will always be number one, even if they don't win the 'Bowl. To my classmates. 1 wish you
all the success in the world Pe.ice to: A J (you've punched me in the arm more often than 1
can count); George (two old women, complaining on the stmip); Andreis (no. not the fiyin'
dutchman!); Ian (SIMPSONS); Roh Bell (what's up with the Nyquil); Anup,^m (Indian

My time at RSGC comes to an end. .ind I would like to thank the entire schiml for
the fact that I leave with much more than what I h.id when I enrolled five years ago To those
whom I leave behind, I offer this piece of advice from a certiiin Last Boyscout: "Be prep.ired
son - that's my motto." "And now, ladies and gentleman , IT'S SHOWTIMI'"
Ten long years! Wow, how my life has changed, and 1 hope, for that better,
for every one. Luckily (?) we can all look forward now to a place where we are the
unknowns. A place where we are at the bottom of the pile, where we are once again the
trash, just like we were in grade nine. However, we prevailed then, and I am confident
that we can do so again.
I guess that 1 should thank my mom for getting me to school every morning,
well at least most mornings and my brother for helping me out when nineteen was still
so far away.
Thanks to all of you who provided me with ten years of memories, and finally
good luck to next year's class and anyone else who feels that they could use the help.

My genitalia have enlarged considerably since coming to St. George's and for this I am
thankful. In seven short years I've become a hardened cynic and proud memberof the elitistclub;
for this I am also thankful. Of course I couldn't have done it all on my own. Special thanks to Mr.

I've spent three great years at St. George's and in those years, the school
has given me a great deal. 1 thank my parents, most of all, for giving me the
opportunity to be a part of the school. I feel that all of my teachers have given
me something special but there are a few who have made an incredible impact on
me. I'd like to thank Dr. Skalinski. Mr. Schreiner, Mr. Orlando and, most of all,
Mr. D'Arcy for always motivating me and sparking interest.
Of coarse, there are several people and memories which will never be
forgotten. First there is my amazing girlfriend, Katherine, who was always there
for me, and will always be the best. There was also outdoor ball hockey at its best,
the search for a win in lacrosse and feeling the pain while running cross country. I
can't forget Price Is Right and the perfect dice game, singing away in Kilcoo, the
two live Pearl Jam songs, Mr. Keenan in Banff and George taking all the credit in
the comp-sci days. 1 mustn't forget to mention the Swaziland boys and the good
times we had.
I wish the graduating class all the be.st and thank them for everything.
Seven years, I can't believe it's all over. 'What a long strange
trip it's been. 'I'd like to thank my family for their unconditional love

my parent, for their patience love and support. I learned to see order in our random
lives, learned to trust and not trust, learned respect, learned to be passive, learned
to be active, learned to relax(if not very much), learned when and when not to hold
all the strings, learned to use time, learned to live.
First and foremost I'd like to thank my mom for supporting me in
every way. Also, thanks to my brother, Geoff. Thanks to the school for a
tremendous 10 years, and all the boys who made it even better - from the
Munchkins to the 3 B's, Toby, M.V., all the crew from 9 and 10. too many

the way - Chicone, Dickey and the boys. Jamie. Christie + all the posse. I

have learned a lot from the school and it is time to say farewell. I will

comfortable for my first two years spent in Canada.

I came to St. George' s in grade 1 1 . Coming from one school to another
is usually hard for a kid, but with the help of a few new friends, as well as a
very close old friend, Mike Vitorovich (bebica), the transition was far from
hard. My three years at R.S.G.C. were the best of my life. 1 met some of the
people who are now my closest, best friends - my brothers. Steve Brooks
(hey Ace! ), Wade Fox (you're p-h-a-t!), and Drew Pearson ( !werD si diputs).
A special thanks to my parents, who have always been supportive of me, no
matter what the situation. To all the people in Antigua, (Wha ya say?) Nikki,
take careof my car or I'll come and hunt you down!! To all the teachers who
have helped me through my few years here, thank you so much. A special

I would like to thank for helping me develop in ways 1 could never have without you

It is hard to believe that it is Graduation time already. It seems like
only yesterday, that 1 was a grade 9 student, not knowing anybody. Five
years have sure passed quickly, and it is time to leave already. Thanks to
the teachers and fellow students who have made the past five years seem
to fly by.
I have traveled to far places throughout this rewarding 5 year journey. I have
experienced various treasures and hardships through my "trek" through this desert. As I walk
along this sandy beach, the words "I hated him, I killed him" plague my mind. Knowing that I
was nicknamed "PsyPho") and various other nicknames Phoster. Pheobe). it can be said that
I have seen various things. A vision appears to me and I see Dr.S's different yet entertaining
chem classes will always be with me. no matter where I am. Also. I must remember the various
conflicts that came across my journey with Mr. D'Arcy, It can be said that we had our differences
and conflicts in the past; however in the end, everything seemed to work out fine. More thanks
must be given to all the various teachers that have helped me survive this never-ending desert
As I close my eyes for the very last time, I feel that I will die forever in this heal. However before
I die. I see a white-boy gallaping on a horse towards me. I scream the slang "F**K you honkie '
and he quickly gallops away in fear of me. With my last k>ok at the sky and the sun. I see the
MOTHASHIP hovering over me, 1 am beamed up and I see aliens surrounding me. "I am not aji
alien" I cry out loudly. Now. I will never forget these recent moments that have just occured.
Lastly. I must give lots of thanks to all my friends here and say that I could not have made this
great trek possible.

Canterbury House Captain: George Bassel
Canterbury had a quite
successful year in 1996-97. We
were competitive in all aspects
of house competition, and
managed to take several
championships. Though we
had a couple of poor turnouts
in the major events, those who
were there really came through
for their house, and showed
the other houses what sort of
spirit Canterbury has. We
continued with our ball hockey
tradition of victory, and
continued to be the best
looking house. Thanks to all
the guys who participated, and
may the tradition continue.

of West victories this year is so long?
Measly little puddles of red, blue, and yellow
dissolved in the sea of white that came
crashing down on them during psycho-ball
matches. Those clad in blue, red, or yellow
were left, huddled in the shade, mere shells
of their former selves, following the cross-
country run. Sure we suffered some minor
set backs, the swim meet for instance, but we
were there. ..some of us and we redeemed
ourselves in the track and field meet where
we taught the other houses a valuable lesson

the almighty and glorious West house was in

this is true but it was all a part of West
strategy. We are like the great predator of

capturing his prey, will play with it, letting it
escape, giving it hope, just before it springs,
snapping its neck like a twig.

The Winch dream team.
V. V-I-C. V-I-C-T-O-R-Y.
Victory's our battle cry. Are we in it; no
we're not. We're not in it, we're on top.
UGH! UNGAWA! WINCH has got the
This has been our house cheer
for two years now; and this year we
proved that power. Last year we
finished dead last, and this year (so far),
we are in FIRST! The house spirit, and
the attendance have been amazing. We
tried our best for house drama, we
dominated the swim meet; and the house
competitions were (for the most part)
also ours to dominate. We had a lot of
guys involved in all areas of the school
(clubs, plays, teams, etc.). Everyone did
their bit, and it has paid off. I've had
help from all grades; from Andries and
Noah (grade 13), Robert and Simon
(grade 12). Michel and Phedias (grade
10), etc. These are just a few names that
stick out, but do not be deceived. Winch
was a power house this year, and it was
because of many Winchers. It has been
the year of Winch domination, and I am
just glad that my name was a part of it;
although credit should be given where
credit is due, which is to all the guys
who got involved in any way, shape, or
form. Thanks for a great year guys, and
continue to dominate!

York House Captain: Jason Taylor
If I had to sum York's proud history in one word, it
would be DOMINATION. After repeatedly crushing
our oppostition for so many yeiUN. I secretly decided to
hold a meeting at the Canadian pentagon with the central
planning committee to devise a plan to make things more
interesting this year. We concluded that we would sit
idly in last place until the final lap of the race, where we
would come out from nowhere and viciously elbow our
way to the top where we belong, in true fine York
Although we are in last place at this moment, our
position in the standings doesn't clearly reflect our
general performance in school. While keeping in good
faith with the motto 'fair play" we have managed tix)
send may fine young men to the academic honour
breakfast and placed them in many notable positions on
various teams and clubs tfuoughout the schixil. The
house charcter is defined by academic excellence,
hardwork and a fine devotion to many aspects
of school life, while perfomting to the maximum and
never letting up until the last lap.
It has been my pnde and honour to follow in the
footsteps of some of the great leaders who have preceded
me as house captains such as Bedard, Sjogren, Duff and
Sparky. This is the house that has had a history of
demolishing it's opponents in floor hockey, football, and
last but definitely not least psycho ball. This year we
have had the best actors, debaters, Ketchum Hall clean up
crews, and characters. The pertbrmance put on by the
few grade nines who did show up to the swim meet was
outstanding. Never was an excuse muttered when these
model Georgians were asked to swim an extra lap for the
house, because we were short of man power.
As I leave this place that has truly taken a spot in my
heart and the one I have grovvii to call my second home. I
am blessed to carry many fond memories of this house as
proudly being a part of it. Gtxxl luck to next year's
incoming house captain.
How do we get Dr. Barlow down?
Hnimmm...The plot thickens...
The first time I saw the school I was not
too sure I wanted to go because at my old
school, we were allowed to talk out and we did
not sit in desks. But then I saw the brochure. It
looked and sounded like a good .school. And
then came the first day of school, it was great
even though it was just a review until 1 2:00.
Although 1 am just in grade three, my
experiences have been many. My teachers are
all great and lots of fun, I have made lots of
friends, but my favourite subjects are still math

A Day In Grade Four
The day starts off when we get to school in the
morning at 8: 1 0. When the bell rings we all run
to See House and make lots of noise while we
go upstairs. When the bell rings at 8:20, Argus
& Reggie are still getting ready for class.
Mr. Jamieson comes up the stairs with his
second cup of coffee and acts like one of us.
Mr. Jamieson is such a good singer but when
he sings in the morning he sings very loud so
Mrs. Keresteci gets very annoyed - and he also
sings like one of us. The morning goes quickly
and before you know it we are all hiding, so that
we won't get lunch duty. Seventh period comes
and we usually have Dr. Leatch for instrumental
music. We all hate how he gives us Leatch bites.
The day is almost over and Henry gets ready for
basketball practice while we write in our
homework books. When school is over - Mr.
Jamieson thanks God for ending this day and
hopes tomorrow he is home in bed, sick.

This test is killing me!
My first day as a new boy
My first day at St. George's was confusing. I
was lost in a world of new places new people,
and new procedures. I didn't know where I was
going, and almost got completely lost once.
Although St. George's is actually a fairly small
place it seemed to resemble a labyrinth, rather
than a school, but the staff and students were
very helpful and I eventually knew where
1 also found it strange that as 1 sat down at my
desk I was handed a test ! As 1 handed in the test
I wondered what kind of school would give
students a test on the first day. I didn't really
care though, because I was also enjoying many
aspects of St. George' s, lunch for example. And
by the end of the day I was looking forward to
coming to school the next day
My first day as an old boy
My first day of this school year wasn't really
my first year being an old boy. This is my fourth
year at St. George's. New boys, who have no
idea how to organize themselves come and find
themselves lost in a world of new subjects and
I was given a new boy to look after. I had to give
him advice and show him around. One of the
great things about being an old boy is that you
know all the teachers and what they expect. The
first day is a bit boring. All the teachers do is

First Day at R.S.G.C.
Mr. Hutchison's class, recieved four
new excellent students. There were many new
circutnslances to deal with. For some, the unifomi
was a new experience. The teachers were
dedicated to making our transtion an easy one;
they were always ready to give a helping hand
and tell a joke just to tiiake us laugh.
The first few days were hectic: trying to
learn where the classes were, what books we
needed foreach class, and where itiiportant rooms
such as the washrooms and the dining hall were
located. The work load was heavier than we were
used to. and the sport tryouts were also an
experience. Nevertheless, the students at R.S.G.C.
made our transition an easy one.

The missing link in the evolutionary process
The First Soccer team of 1 996-97 had what you could refer to as an up and down season. However, the team played well in every game
and most importantly had a lot of fun doing so. Team captains George Bassel, Jason Taylor, and Tim Boyce led the team throughout the year with
solid play and excellent leadership. The top scorer for the team was Robert Shellekens who had an impressive seven goals. The team scored a
notable victory over Ridley in the regular season. However, the climax of the season was a very impressive turnout in the Canadian National
Tournament, in which they placed second out of sixteen teams. In doing so, they had wins over Holy Trinity, Selwyn House, and King Edge Hill,
and they also tied a very strong U.C.C. team. Overall this was a solid campaign and all the players enjoyed a successful year.

The under 15 soccer team had what is
commonly referred to as a "rebuilding" year.
Although they didn't have as many wins as was
desired, they did have a lot of fun and did pull out
a great victory over Bay vie w Glen towards the end
of the season. Andrew Newbury and Gavin
Wiggins led the team with three goals apiece. The
team was well coached and despite having many
injuries they played well in the IS AA tournament.
Furthermore, the team did have an excellent core of
young players with much talent and all of them
enjoyed a successful year.

It was a good year for First Hockey. They
competed in the Blue and Silver tournament at
Pickering and made it to the League Playoffs.
The team came in second, winning the most
games but not scoring as many points as Rosseau
Lake, the tournament winner. The League Playoff
was an upsetting ending for the team. They lost
in the quarter finals to Lakefield. There was great
offensive play by Taylor, Henkie, and Burroni,
strong defence by Slogget and Sedgwick and
consistent goal tending by Carr Hatch.

but we were very fortunate to have reasonably good
snow for all our meets. We skied at Craigleith, Devil's

this year was in our "B" squads. The Junior B Team

The Senior basketball team had an up
and down season. The highlight was winning the
Selwyn House Tournament in Montreal ( including
two vei7 convincing victories over Selwyn House
and LCC in the Championship round). The
downside was a 3-6 season including tough losses
in games that should have been won and too many
close games that could have gone either way.
Injuries played a role with starting guard Mike
Kelly falling to an ankle sprain early in the season
and never returning. By the end of the season, the
senior team led by captain Graham Wright,
veterans Jamie Lint and Elliot Hughes and rookie
starters Matt Barrington and Dan MacDonald had
re-organized and finished with a playoff berth in
the ISAA. They went on to lose the semi-final
game to SAC by three points in a hard fought
battle which showed our Georgian spirit at its
finest. The team would like to say a special

Gilette, the best a man can get
The under 1 6 basketball team had a fairly good season. It was
highlighted by their trip to Montreal to play at the Selwyn
House CAIS Invitational tournament, where they place third.
They played well, losing to LCC and Selwyn House and
beating Country Day School twice. Apart from basketball the
Under 16 basketball team indulged themselves in other
activities. The lower section of The Downtown was very
revealing. The team also played in the CIS AA final tournament
at Ridley. They tried their best, boasting their superior skill
and ability but ended up losing in the consolation finals.
Coach Nakatsu was very impressed by the talent and
enthusiasm exhibited by the members of the team. The team
would like to thank their coach Mr.Nakatsu for an exciting
season and Mr. Van Herk for accompanying them to Montreal.
A special thanks goes to all their fans for supporting them
during the season.

We've had another awesome year in the
world of public speaking and debating with more
people getting involved than ever before. As always
our school hosted the Annual Challenge Saucer, the
crown jewel of debating/public speaking which not
only ran flawlessly but saw Bobby Palit place first
in the debating standings and our team of Bobby
Palit. Chris Martin, and Robert Bell finish third
overall, again in the debating division of the
tournament. Besides being well represented at
various invitational debates our school continually
placed very highly in all impwrtant Fulford League
debates. On the other end of the spectrum Greg
Karout, Bobby Palit, and Rob Burkett had a lot of
fun at this year' s International Independent School
Public Speaking Competition. This is a three day
extravaganza of world class pubhc speaking occurring
in October which was unfortunately held this year
in Toronto. Perhaps the greatest success we achieved
was at this year' s Ontario Student Debating Union
Tournament, where Chris Martin and Bobby Palit
did so well that they will be representing the school
at the Provincials, to be held in London later this year.
Depending on how they do they may have the chance
to attend the Nations and even possibly the Worlds.
The final big event of the year is the Southern Ontario
model United Nations Assembly hosted by UTS
in April. This year we are fielding
three delegations where eight of us
will attempt to solve the world's
problems both with hundreds of
other students in Convocation Hall
amongst ourselves in Grossman's
Bobby and I had a
phenomenal time this year and we

involved in public speaking and offer a very
special thanks to our intrepid leader and
unwavering source of inspiration, Mrs. Miller.

There were a couple of major changes this year in the server's guild, one positive, and one negative. The good news was this year Father
Hill bought the guild new robes. This meant no more wax covered robes(for now!). The bad news was that this year marked the first year in a
very long time that there was no vestry. No more Neil Young, no more lounging around getting ready to serve on Friday or on Eucharists and
by the way, where in the heck did the Holy Gourd go? But with the loss of the vestry came the aquisition of a new room inside the chapel itself
and we all adjusted accordingly. On a good note, I think that we have all learned how to properly put out the candles. This year was a good one
and I hope that everyone was happy. There was of course one person who was very happy and that was Mr. Love. The reason; no incencse! To
all the guys who served this year, a great job. Everyone did exactly what he was supposed to do. There are just too many guys out there to thank,
but I would like to thank George and Drew specifically. You guys really helped out a lot when I wasn't at school. I hope that the guild head next
year will have as much fun as I did this year.

This year was another wild ride. We survived: dislocation due to
construction, cramped quarters, new computer networks, the lack of Mr.
Latimer's great candid photos, and the greatest challenge of all - each
other. Most of the crew were returning for their second stint at the school
year's longest running project. At first we didn't think Mrs. Hall was
serious when she said we'd be back after exams to finish up the book,
but at this time of year we know it is painfully true. We've had some great
help from new members, including boys from the junior school and the
same committed effort from the old gang. The jury is still out as to
whether or not the overwhelmingly large number of OACs working on
this Georgian was a help or a hinderance. At any rate we're all moving
on and hope we've left you with a record of some of your favourite
moments from this year. THE YEARBOOK CLUB 96-97

EYES OF THE FATHER
He wiped the beads of sweat that
had formed on his brow. The traffic jam
was driving him crazy and it was hot as
hell. And there I was in the back seat.
Grumbling to himself he was franticly
trying to figure out how he was going to
pay the landlord. He had got fired, again.
He got fired a lot, probably because ofhis
attitude. He also had a short fiase. This
time, he had punched a co-worker in the
face and started some serious fight or
something. I think he hurt the man pretty
bad. He had a horrible temper. He
started hittinghis pockets foracigarette.
He smoked when he was annoyed, but I
didn ' t need that hint to tell he was
annoyed. I could see it in his eyes. He
finally hitthatfamiUarshape in hisright
pocket and started smoking.
His life was pretty crappy. He
wasn't, you could say, 'blessed'. He had
been divorced for 2 or 3 weeks I think,
and had lost all his money to Ma. She got
just about everything. 1 didn 't live with him
or nothing; he was just giving me a Uft fi-om
school. Hived withmy Ma, and thatwas
fine cause she ' s real nice but she does
wasn'tboyfiiends, government or
something, it was my Da. She didn't like
him much. Anyway, you get the idea, he
had his problems. No money, no job, no
wife, and all can be pretty depressing. I
didn 't see him much, and I think he missed
me though he never said so . I felt real ly
sorry for him and love' m and all but I still
what he did that day.
It had to have been hours. The
jam wasn'tmoving. [noticed Da was
tensing up and moving all over the place all
uncomfortable like. Wejust sat there not
talking, probably cause we didn't have
much to talk about. He mostly only talked
to me about Ma and the stuff she said
abouthim. He'dsay: 'whatfilthyliesshc
say ' bout me now, boy? ' I would shrug it
ofiFsaying she ain 't said nothing. I don ' t
think he believed me and persisted too,
but eventually he gave up. Anyway, I
could see it in his eyes he was getting mad
so I tried talking to him. He wasn't
interested though and would shrug me off
So I shut up before I looked like a fool.
And then it happened. Some bug came
buzzingby hisearand landed onhis face.
He kept slapping at it but it kept coming
back. Then some moron behind us
started honking and yelling at us ' cause
came over to us and started banging on
the windows, and that did it.
My Da with a wild look in his
eyes opened the door and hit the man
rightsquareintheface. The man fell right
oflFhis feet and hit the ground real hard.
He went unconscious I think. Next he
grabbed the gun he kept under the back
seat and then pulled me out of the car.
He dragged the man and me to a gas
on duty there saw us and was mighty
scared. My Da told him not to move, but
when he bent down to tie up the other
Da noticed he was long gone and Da
didn' t seem to care much neither. I envied
that guy. Well wejust waited there for a
hour or two, saying nothing. I was
keeping quiet. I mean, there was a
disturbed man holding a gun in fi-ont of
me, even ifhe was my Da. The man
started crying and fiissing like a two-year
old child. My Da held the gun to his
head, screaming and tellinghim to shutup.
Da started hitting him and telling him all his
problems. It seemed like he was
that poor bastard. It was like the man
was the source ofhis problems. I tell ya,
I've heard of people letting of a little
steam. But this was crazy, and I told him
so too. But my Da kept right on doing
what he was doing paying mc no mind. It
was then I felt pretty ashamed to be his
son, but I never said that to h im . I fc It
sorry for the man. I didn't want to be him
Well it wasn ' t too long before the
sound ofsirens hit my ears. The cops
were here. I figure the employee must
have told 'm or something. We were
surrounded and I heard some guy start
yelling for my Da to give it up and
surrender. My Da looked mad, and that
wild look returned to his eyes. Heputtht
gun to the man ' s head and I thought he ' d
shoot, but he didn ' t. Suddenly my Da did
something I had never seen him do . He
started crying and put his free hand on his
face. It was then I understood. My Da
ain'tno murderer. He wasjusta
fiiistrated man who had been pushed
overtheedge. The man apparently didn '1
see it my way. The man saw his chance
and leapt for the gun. They struggled for
that gun for a while and suddenly the gun
went oflFin the ruckus and the man fell
down, dead. The first thing I noticed was
the blood. Man, I' ve never seen that
much blood in my whole Ufe ! It was just
about everywhere, especially on my Da.
When I read my Da' s eyes this time, I
saw something different, panic. He raised
his blood-soaked hand to his face and
then looked at the corpse. He started
yelling and screaming hke an animal and
ran out the door at a dead run, covered ii
blood. Well, seconds later I heard shots,
didn ' t need to see, I knew what
happened. I didn't move, I just sat there,
was shocked, sad, relieved and disgustec
and I threw up right there. The cops took
good care of me.
I feel sad in a way. I mean he
too bad about someone like that. We
never were really close, as I said before,
guess my main thought is that I am glad
it's over, ' cause he must have been prett

Of course, it wasn'teasy.
And there were times I didn't know
what to do. But I trusted my
instincts. I always trusted my
instincts on these matters. There
was something about Hubert that
didn't make sense. Maybe it was
(lis alibi or the way he dressed. I

Penelope's party. He had on a

The lights went out at 9:00 and that
was followed, 30 seconds later, by
a wretched and blood curdling
scream. I reached for my pocket
flashlight in the left breast pocket of
my herringbone tweed sports
jacket. In my business it's always
important to be prepared for the
unexpected. I quickly surveyed the
ballroom and on the floor beside
the fruit bowl was Mrs. Gertrude
Gimble Gumble. She had a dinner
fork stuck in her, and her neck was
bare of the bauble of sparkling blue
diamonds. I had to think and act
fast to restore order to the room. I
immediately ran towards the body
andcheckedif she was alive. She
was dead and her eyes were glazed
over. I looked for clues and
carefully put the fork with a
Kleenex in a bag so as not to leave
fingerprints. I looked around and
saw a trail of blood going to the
door. Where did it lead? Of
course after having restored the
lights and order, I asked people for
their alibis. Hubert's excuse was
the sizeable quantity of fruit he had
swallowed. He complained that
severe stomach cramps prevented
any movement on his part. Hmm I
thought, Penelope's alibi was that
she couldn't have done it because
she was at the store buying clothes
for her friend. Plus when she got
home the killing had already
happened. One thing for sure this
was going to be a hard case.

WHAT'S IN YOUR
Hi. My name is Frank. I am
your average 16 year old kid. I
have the same problems as
everyone else, and the same goal.
All I wanna do is to have a good
time, but sometimes, it can be really
hard. These days you've got
people watching you right and left,
but it's not the cops I worry about.
My main difficulty is with my father.
You see, he was brought up real
well. Always acting perfectly,
knowing the answer to every
question, polite, well mannered, but
stubborn. He gets on my case
about almost everything, like it' s so
wrong to be who I am.
He is the kind of father that
never tells his kid the facts of life,
and never stops to think about
anyone else except for himself.
Things were a lot different in his
day, or so he says. He's always
really narrow minded, which caused
a huge problem just a couple of
You see, one day he decided
to go looking around in my room. I
don't know why he felt the need to
invade my privacy like that, but he
did. Perhaps he was paranoid.
Anyways, he came across
something kind of embarrassing. I
don't see what the big deal was. I
mean, everyone my age is doing
things much more drastic than this
these days. What else is there to
dohalf the time? I think that things
have become really loose in the
past decade. It's like no-one has
to have any inhibitions anymore.
I walk in the door and take a
seat in the living room. My dad is
totally phased out for some reason.
I can read him like a book.
It's in his eyes orhis unsteady
motions. Something was quite
obviously wrong. Ofcourselpay
no mind. I try to keep my distance
So I get up to grab a bight to
eat from the kitchen. Nachos
would probably hit the spot right
about now. I'd been starving all
day after a good workout on the
court. I rise to go to the kitchen,
and suddenly I'm hit with it.
"Wait one second Frank. I
was up in your room today." I
thought, hey, he's probably about
to overreact about something again,
like he does every day. I wonder
what he found today.
"What were you doing up there?" I ask.
"I was looking for something."
"Well next time, why don't you
just ask, ok?" I was starting to get
angry. I have a really short temper
with him lately, and besides, he
really shouldn't be up there looking
through my stuff.
"I came across something quite
interesting while I was there."
"So." I said with a big attitude.
"I see you've been making good
use of the top drawer in your
Suddenly I felt very nervous,
almost as if I was gonna throw up
or something. I couldn't remember
what exactly was in that drawer but
I knew it must be incriminating.
Maybe he had found my stash or
something. He doesn't usually open
I finally realized what he was
talking about and totally flipped
out. What the hell did he think he
was doing going through my stuff. I
could just sense that he would
make a big deal about this sort of
thing, but 1 don't see what the
problem was. I mean, at least I'm
A thousand thoughts went
through my mind. Should I make
up some lie tell the truth, walk
away? But before I could respond
in any way, he pipes up again.
"Condoms huh?" He Pauses.
"What the hell are you doing having
sex. I don't see what the hell is
wrong with you. Do you know how
many diseases there are out there?
AIDS, Syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes,
and whatever else. I can't believe
how stupidly irresponsible you are
sometimes. It's like you don't even
care about anything."
He went on and on for about
five more minutes. I wasn't even
listening to what he was saying
anymore. It's all bull anyways. I
can take care of myself. Besides,
what's the big hassle. It's sex. A
natural god-given luxury.
Something that everyone does.
Does he not know that I have
reached a maturity level high
enough for this kind of thing? It's
not like he's never done it, unless
Of course I'm adopted.
Unfortunately, as much as I
think I'm right, he will never agree.
It occurred to me that I must lie. I
need my privileges here and I just
can't stand to see him babble on
like this, so I interrupt him.
"Dad. Just wait ok? I've
learnt all about disease and
whatever. I know how unsafe it is.
Truth is, everyone has condoms
handedout to them in school. It's
part of a big safe-sex program. Do
you really think I would do that sort
of thing though? Com'on! I'm only
sixteen years old, all right? I can't
believe you'd even accuse me of
something like that. Besides, we
both know that premarital sex is
"Well," he delays, of course.
"I'm sorry for yelling at you. I just
get paranoid you know? I want the
best for my son. Just forget I ever
said anything, and get rid of those
It seems I am home free. He
gobbled up everything. See, that's
the good thing about my father.
He's so damn stupid! I mean, did
you hear how I phrased that? It
was such an obvious lie, yet he ate
it up anyway
With that pressure off my
back, I went about my business as
normal. I had a hearty plate of
Nachos, and a Molson Canadian to
wash 'em down with. I went
upstairs to find a better hiding spot
formy things. Within a couple
hours of getting ready, I was out
for another night on the town. Much
later then that, I met a great girl.
She was a good candidate for the
next notch on my bedpost.
Basically, you have to
remember one thing. You don't
make the rules, you just play the
game. Don't try to be good
because their definition of good is
much different then ours. No
matter how hard you try, you'll
never be able to justify anything to
someone from another generation, it
just doesn't work. But you can still
throw some curve balls and get
around 'em easily, just like they
probably did when they were our

but Montreal? For our music trip this year we went to this
logical destination and although we were stuck in Laval for
most of the time (they didn't quite trust us) we managed
to have some fun. The free time in Jacques Cartier Square
was definitely interesting (Did anyone find out why Stu
bought that gas mask?), and the other definite highlight
was the underground mall we visited (Nick, next time buy
the ten dollar nylons).

Junior School 'A' Band Tour
The 33 members of the R.S.G.C. Junior School 'A' band accompanied by Dr. Barlow,
Mr. Wade- West, Mr. McMaster, and Mr. Hutchison departed from Toronto by motorcoach on
June 14, 1996. The long journey to Columbus, Ohio took almost the entire day at the end of
which we checked in at the Best Western Columbus North Hotel and soon retired to our rooms
to get some well needed rest. The following morning, the members of the band visited the
Moundbuilders State Memorial where we gained admission to the museum and had the
pleasure of listening to a Native American leader skilled in both flute playing and in flute
making techniques. In the afternoon, the band performed for the Heisey Collectors of America
following which we visited the go-kart park.
The next morning after a service at Trinity Episcopalian Church, the band left for
Cincinnati where we boarded the paddlewheeler 'Mark Twain' for a cruise which provided us
with a sumptuous dinner along with some great entertainment. The following day, the band
performed at the rotunda of the National History and Museum Centre. The evening was spent
at Paramount king's Island Amusement Park where a rollicking time was had by all!
The coach transported the group for a full day performance at the Cleveland Zoo and
Rainforest following which the residents of the Village of St. Edward in Akron, Ohio were
treated to some wonderful music by the band. The final leg of the tour included visits to the
Cleveland Indians Baseball Stadium and to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame . The last night before
our departure to Toronto, the band members enjoyed themselves thoroughly at the Cedar Point
Amusement Park which had several interesting rides. After a hectic week's tour the band finally
returned to Toronto in the evening of June 20, 1996. By Jonathan Abraham
for all your entertainment needs.

The grad weekend is traditionally an escape after the first hectic weeks of school.
One goes under the assumption and hope that one will get to know one's peers better and
learn the first essentials of what universities require out of a student. The most memorable
tradition has always been the bog walk, a last time during which we can be young at heart
and revel in getting as dirty as humanly possible.

High Park Run
Ahhh... the High Park Run. the first major house event of the year.
.Although some staff grabbed doughtnuts and coffee, others stretched with
the students, preparing for yet another eventful run. Paint was smudged on
faces, shoelaces were tied, and R.S.G.C. athletes took off in either the "A"
run. "B" run, or "C" run. The photographers were nearly knocked over as a
mad herd of white, yellow, red, and blue flew through the field towards the long
road. Below are the top twelve finishers for the "A" run. Mr. Keenan was kind
enough to surrender his title to Adrian Henke who proceeded him for most of
the race until the last few minutes.

M) Pound Turkey Unveiled at
ueen's Quay Last Night
On Sunday a live turkey weighing in
59.4672 kg was put on display at Queen's
jay terminal as part of the Thanksgiving
stivities there. "Fat Boy", as the turkey has
en named by the University of Toronto
ology team that created him, is a
mendous achievement in the field of
"The genetically altered bird is no
Jghing matter. It is the result of thousands
■ hours of hard work. By examining the DNA
a normal bird and merging it with our
mputer generated schematics we were able
increase the organism's body mass
>portionally," explains Dr. Peter Balanski,
ad of U of T's bio-engineering department.
The turkey measures just over one
;ter in height and three meters in width and
i\ member of the genus animalia avis
. ignus. It was bom on January 6, 1996 and
i s already reached its optimum weight.
Many experts in the field were on site
The friendly freaks of R.S.G.C.
to examine the bird and as Harvard professor
Emily Biller put it, 'The Uirkey 's life signs are
stable and if its health remains unchanged
then, by God, they've done it! Why this
could solve world hunger... the possibihties
But, for many, this scientific wonder
was just part of a fun-filled day on the lake.
As Rob Blark, a local six year old, explained,
"I liked everything, but, most of all 1 liked the
big turkey. He was so big. He was so fat.
Mmmm. Turkey. That's a lot of mrkey."
The turkey, as well as other attractions
such as an enormous, intricately carved,
pumpkin was a big hit and drew much
business to the HarbourFront area.
"All of these events tend to bring in
the tourists and once they're here they can't
get enough hot dogs. Yes, if a giant bird is
what it takes to bring in the bucks I'm all for
it," commented Mr. Pimm, a local hot dog
Nonetheless, animal rights groups
were on hand to protest what they
considered "cruel and unusual punishment."
Members of these organizations felt that this
line of genetic experimentation is not only
illegal, but unethical. One man, Michael
Robielaty, tied himself to the turkey's cage
screaming, "Hell, no, 1 won't go! Free the
turkey, don't turn him into jerky !" No one was
injured and the turkey was returned to its
home at one of the university's biological
laboratories at 1 60 1 Yonge Street where it will
undergo further testing.
The Humane Society has filed multiple
law suits against the university and, in
theory, this could kill Dr. Bahnski's genetic
programs. However, U of T lawyers, under
the leadership of Hal Hannabord, do not
intend to allow this to happen. 'The bird is
our property and we were in the right,"
insisted Mr. Hannabord at a press
conference on Monday.
"Fat boy" has already been
hailed as the eighth wonder of the
world and he will ultimately be moved
to the Toronto Zoo to be placed on

It's a new year and there's a new
addition to the school. The construction
began in early July. By the time we got
to school it was well under way. For
almost a month there were leaking rooms,
dusty hallways, and no heating. Finally
the construction was completed and we
could enjoy all the facilities that
R.S.G.C. has to offer.

Yp^ Think IrnCntssj/
Tom To Me?"
now %'s(M to be diffoenf
As you read this, there lies on the
south-east corner of Yonge and Bloor a
man. At least, I presume he lies there still,
for this man has nowhere else to go. Try to
picture him: he is of dark olive complexion,
with long dark hair. He wears no hat or
gloves, but has only a light jacket over-top
his ragged clothes to protect him from the
cold. As I say, this man has nowhere else to
go, for he is homeless.
As I walk along the street during
the night, I see the man from a distance.
He makes little impression in my mind,
blending as he does (to my eyes) with the
building against which he leans. In the
sea of downtown pedestrians he seems to
me an unremarkable figure, easily missed.
Every few steps I answer requests for
spare change with a quick no and a
careful indifference; a calculated
coldness. Every few steps 1 practise my
civility by restraining my humanity.
And so as I approach this man, this
unremarkable figure leaning against the
building, I prepare my response. 1 very
intentionally keep my eyes straight ahead,
ready to respond if spoken to, to answer
quickly no. But the man does not even
look at me; indeed, his eyes are focused
inwards, oblivious to the world around
him. When I am five steps away from
him his feet slip along the packed snow
beneath him, away from the wall. His
body follows in motion, slipping down
the wall until he lies, legs sprawled on the
sidewalk, arms huddled to his chest, his
face close to the snow. His eyes retain
the same inward focus, still oblivious. As
I pass I see his body gripped by a small
tremor, not of cold but of deep comfort.
The man falls to the street as you
or 1 would fall to bed after a long day.
This seems quite logical; for this man, the
street is his bed, his place of rest, all he
may call his after a long day (which is to
say, nothing). He is without a house, and
he sleeps on the street, living in Toronto,
we have all seen it many times before,
and are not shocked by it.
This night is different. When
temperatures sink to twenty degrees
below freezing, the situation changes.
Tonight, this man slips not into his bed,
but to possible death. The death of
homeless persons is a regular occasion in
Toronto: it receives little attention; its
victims, little sympathy. Its occurrence
becomes a fact of life.
But as I pass this man, I am struck
by his figure, by the language of his
body. He seems to be without
illumination, without soul. He is
certainly the shadow of a man, reduced to
the bare minimum of existence.
Looking at this man, I see that he
is real, more so than anyone I know. He
is real in the sense that he is completely
without pretense. This man more than
any other is stripped free of any layers
meant to deceive those around him; he is
exactly as you see him. He has no past or
future, no family or friends, no hopes or
desperations; these things do not exist for
him now. They are irrelevant to him, as
irrelevant as the warm bed to which I will
retire tonight, irrelevant as the well-
prepared meal which he will not eat. This
man has nothing but himself, and even
that is fading, fading as quickly as I pass
him on the crowded street.
As you read this, there lies on the
south-east corner of Yonge and Bloor a
man. At least, I presume he remains a
man. It may be that it is only the frozen
remains of a man, a shadow of dreams
now homeless as the men and women
we step over every day as we rush
towards our well prepared meals and
warm beds, our sense of self. For our
homes are not just our physical shelter;
they are our solace, our retreat from the
world. This man has none. I presume
he lies there still, for he has nowhere
else to go. Dead or alive, this man is
The Great Falcon and the Yellow-
There lived once upon a time, a
great falcon who travelled among the
canyons and valleys to find the yellow-
gold rabbit. For he believed, as did all
his brethren that eternal life would be
given to the bird whose talons made the
kill. The great falcon became so intent
upon his mission that he thought of
Now the yellow-gold rabbit was
a very clever rabbit for he never made a
permanent home nor did he allow the
wind to carry his scent. He was such a
speedy and experienced rabbit that he
could easily escape predators.
Sometimes for the joy of it, he would
simply run circles around coyotes until
they became so dizzy that they could
not recover their senses for many
hours. And by that time the yellow-gold
rabbit was nowhere to be found.
On one particular day the great
falcon was enjoying magnificent wind
currents above Red Canyon. He
enjoyed gliding, for his wings were
truly great wings. Sometimes he was
mistaken for an eagle when he glided at
great altitudes. On that particular day
the yellow-gold rabbit was enjoying
lunch, which was a patch of watercress
in a stream.
The great falcon was awakened
from his day-dreaming when suddenly
he saw the yellow-gold movement in
the canyon. He wasn't sure what it was
at first. He lowered his great wings for
a closer look at the yellow-gold thing
in the stream.
Suddenly a loud noise was
heard and the falcon cried out in pain.
He had been shot by a hunter. He was
losing altitude fast. He could see a pack
of wolves circling the place where he
was about to land. Then he saw a flash
of yellowish gold circling around the
wolves. They got so dizzy that they
passed out. The falcon landed with a
thud. He looked around and all he saw
was the face of a rabbit staring back at
him. That was the last thing he
remembered. The yellow-gold rabbit
grabbed him and sped away to a cave.
Once there the falcon awoke and the
rabbit spoke to him. "You have
suffered great pain," exclaimed the
rabbit. "Let me make you immortal!"
Then the rabbit put a paw on the
falcon's head and ordained him to be
immortal! After that, the falcon and the
rabbit became the best of friends.
I have always hated the smell of urine, but
every day 1 had to go down this piss soaked
alleyway to get to work. The alleyway was usually
pretrs dark, even in the middle of the day, but at
the time that I had to go to work, right before day
break, you couldn't see ten steps in front of you.
There were garbage cans lining the sides of the
alle>"way. the big. green plastic ones that the
restaurants use. They were all overflowing with
old, mold) food. A lot of restaurants backed onto
the al]e\-way. that's wh> the garbage was mostly
food stuff. "The walls of the alley were a dark red
brick: actually they could have been pretty nice if
somebody had taken the time to clean them. I
always used to imagine the alleyway about a
bundled years ago. All the buildings were newly
built and rich couples would go down the alley
holding hands. In a way the alleyway was sort of
mystical to me.
There was only one guy who lived in the
alley. His most noticeable features were that he
was always smibng and, even though he must
have been 60. he still had striking red hair. His hair
was thick and almost copper. He was always
under this thin, bright red blanket; actually I'm not
sure how he kept it so clean. The blanket was the
same colour as his hair. Well, anyway, this guy
kept his things in one of those shopping carts that
you get at a supermaricet; you know, one of the
big silver ones. In his cart he had a few odds and
ends, an old baseball glove, some papers, and a
bunch of old clothes. He always kept this picture
on top of all the other things. The picture was old
and worn down but you could still easily see who
it was. It was a young woman, probably about
twenty. The woman had red hair, the same colour
as his. I always assumed that she was his
daughter. I used to imagine that one day as I was
walking home from work. 1 would see his daughter
run up to him and say. in a British accent "Father, I
have come to take you home."
During the first few weeks of my alleyway
excursions. I started paying close attention to the
old man. The way he just sal and watched, it was
really strange, but in a way it made me feel
protected. It was like he was the watchman of the
alley. After a while I decided that 1 wanted to talk
to him. but every time that 1 passed him. 1 got
nervous. I'm actually not sure why. I always used
to imagine me saying hello and him swearing at me
and chasing me away. .So. Instead of saying hello.
1 just smiled at him every time 1 passed. I guess
you could say that he smiled back, but he was
always smiling iiny-way .
After a few more weeks of smiling. 1
actually built up enough nerve to speak to him. 1
said a simple hello as 1 passed. He smiled back as if
he hadn't heard me. 1 was really surprised. He had
ignored me. I wasn't really ;mgry just sort of hurt. 1
had extended myself to him ;ind he had cast me
aside. 1 decided I would ask him why he hiid not
answered me. As I was walking home from work
the next day. I went to him and asked him my
question. He looked up at me and pointed to his
ears. I had been so stupid; he was deaf. I smiled,
patted him on the shoulder and went home. The
next morning I left home feeling excited. I wanted
to see him again. I'm not [perfectly sure why. I
went to where he usually was, on the east side of
the alley, at the center, but he wasn't there.
For two weeks I kept on checking to see if he had
come back, but he hadn't. Then I had an idea. I
would call the pobce and ask if they had picked
up a deaf, homeless, elderly man. I called the
non-emergency line for the police and asked them
my question. They put me on hold for about ten
minutes, and made me listen to some crappy
musak. Then a woman came on the phone. She
sounded about fiftyish. She told me that a man of
that description had been stabbed and killed. I
asked if the attacker had been found. She told me
they were still looking. You know it's kind of
furmy . The only thing that I could think of was,
who would guard the alleyway.
I couldn't believe it when my dad went
absolutely crazy a couple of weekends ago.
Since my parents were divorced. I spend most of
my time with my mom and alternate weekends
with my dad. Because of this, my dad had never
supervised a sleepover before, although
eventually he wUl have to get used to them with
his new 1-1/2 year old daughter. Anyway, this
was my first sleepover with him.
My friend, Jeff, arrived at about 6:00p.m.
at my dad's house just before dinner It was
Saturday evening. We had jiLst ordered pizza
before Jeff came, and I figured it would be about
20 minutes before we could eat. Jeff and I
decided to hang around with everyone until the
dinner airived. I had met him years ago. and we
have been ftiends since. I picked up my baby
sister's squishy ball and started to roU it around.
She seemed to enjoy the little game and .started
mnning after the ball and retrieving it for me.
Eventually, this rolling changed itself into
bouncing. It was quite easy to ase as a volleyball
when 1 come to think of it. This harmless game
seemed to bother my dad. He told me to .stop
fiddling with the ball. I thought he was joking. 1
was only bouncing the ball. What could be
wrong with that? So 1 continued. He looked at
me sternly ;ind then asked again that I stop.
Maybe it was becau.se he was overprotective of
the baby and didn't want her to get injured. The
ball then bounced oft my knee and rolled over to
the couch where he was laying. He picked it up
and put It undemeath him.
After dinner. Jeff and I went upstiiirs to
watch television in my room. My father was the
one who iUlowed me to put a T. V. in my nxim.
My mother dixfs not appn>ve of this. The time
passed quickly ;uid before we knew it, "Saturdiiy
Night Live" was on. I can't exactly a'niemher
what it was about but we watched it for about 45
minutes when my dad came in. He said that he
was getting ready for bed and therefore, he
thought we should be in bed in 15 minutes. I was
confused. Usually, I stay up as late as I want on
Saturday nights. I tried to argue, but there was
not much I could have done. I asked why we had
to go to bed so early. He said it was his
responsibility to make sure Jeff got a good I
night's sleep. He then left the room before I could'
say another word. The 1 5 minutes were almost
up when Jeff and I decided to go downstairs and
get a drink and a snack. By this time we had
already changed our clothes. As we were talking
and eating, we heard my dad coming down the
stairs. He told us again to go to bed. I wish I
knew what his problem was. Jeff was assigned to
the guest bedroom. Once we had finished
snacking. Jeff suggested that we move the
mattress from his room into my room so that we
could watch T.V. a little longer. So as he
suggested, we proceeded. We quietly moved the
mattress out of one room into the other
Suddenly. I started to laugh. Trying to contain
myself. I threw my head into a pillow and at the
same time dropped the mattress. My dad must
have heard some commotion because he came
out of his room to see what was happening. By
this time. I was on the floor; and Jeff, who had
heard my dad coming, was in his bed pretending
to be innocent. By the time I hfted my head up,
my dad was standing in the hall. It was just me,
him, and the mattress that was sticking into each
of our bedrooms through the hall. My dad tried
to shout as he whispered. He told me to get the
mattress back on the box spring. After struggling
with the mattress myself, he took charge and
flipped it onto the box spring, pulled the door
shut and said nothing. I was afraid to go out of
the room, so I went to sleep.
The next moming, he acted as if nothing
had happened, although he was in the same
frame of mind. Before going down for breakfast, ]
requested to have a shower. My request was
rejected, even though I have my shower at the
same time all other Sundays. I got dressed and
went downstairs for breakfast. Jeff was already
eating but my breakfast wasn't ready yet. There
is a child security gate which confines the baby
to a certain area of the house and when Jeff was
finished eating, he left the room forgetting to
close this gate. When I went through the gate, it
was open, so I didn't think to close it. As I got
upstairs, my father was yelling that the baby was
missing and blamed it on me for leaving the gate
open. Where could she possibK go within the
hou.se .' There was nothing to be concemed
about. The baby was eventually found in the
powder room unrolling the toilet paper. When
everyone was dres.sed and ready, we took Jeff
home. ;uid the in;iniac father weekend was over.
