Signs of 

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 

bnstriiction Perm 

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 
your hves. 

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 
these choices. 

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. 

Hal Hannaford. 
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 
favorably disposed. 

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 
teachers were. 

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 

Andrew Barlow 

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. 

The Guild 

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 
following ways: 
Bursaries $8,000 

Headmaster's Fund $6,000 
Awards $1,200 

J.R.Latimer Pubhc Speaking, Jr. 
& Sr., Jr. School Music Prizes, 
Jr. Georgian, 
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.

Valedictory Address 

Thank you Mr. Hannaford, Board 
of Directors, staff, families and fellow 

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 
>pecial school. 

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. 
George's College. 

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. 

Graham Wright 
Head Prefect 


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 ! ! !

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

George Bassel 

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 
my heart. 

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. Remove) who always managed to prevent a 
swollen head and an inflated ego with a simple A&G question. 

Robert Bell 

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 
thank you for being such a good fnend for the past five years, and I say to you that the Gianis 
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 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 
Tag-team); Roh livans (too damn sm;u1 for your own gotxl); Mamix (Georgetown recruited me. 
but I turned em down); Paul (Raw IS War!); the HBA crew, with summer days of hiwps and 
free drinks; Digs. QTip. Phife. Muggsy. 

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 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'" 

Pankaj Bhatia 


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.

Six years at RSGC and the best six years of my life; lots of 
laughs, tears, and hurls, but of course the laughs outweigh the rest. 
I love this place and all the people that make it so great. I'd like to 
thank the "ring team": AJM. MV. or "N", DP., WF, the twelve 
monkeys with the ugly ties, and all the grads, fat head, and all the

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. 
D' Arcy who taught me so much (little of which had to do with math ), and to Mr. Orlando and Mr. 
Holdsworth for having so much faith in me. Mr. Latimer and Mr. Hannaford, thanks for bemg such

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 and thank them for everything.

The memories I have are the people I' ve met, the friends I" ve made and that' s 
how I'll hold on to the last great four years here at RSGC. Sarah, the champ, the best, 
someone to drop by on: Hi, the money; Hey everybody I beat Death at cards (More

for; Family (GPx2, Gmx2, E, Z. O); Maggie, my sis, my bud(her friends too);especially 
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. 

Robert Evans 

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 
to name. Also, thanks to the out-of-school friends that helped me along 
the way - Chicone, Dickey and the boys. Jamie. Christie + all the posse. I 
remember each of you in all my memories: Chorley and 'the works". Farm 
parties. Chapman benders, all the dances, semis and formals. Muskoka, 
May 24. Colling wood etc, etc, etc. I only hope the next chapter of my life 
can compare.

I would just like to mention a few of the people, places, and things that 
have made these past 7 & 1/2 years of my life truly blotto. Jughead, ChappioBone, 
Matty-Dread, the immortal Dave & his incredible vanishing parents. Rusty, Feta, 
my family (mom and pops. Matt and Andy), Brian, John G, Wolfman. McKillop, 
Adam, Watsaholic, Drew, Mike, in fact all the grads, the story of Guthrie Prentice, 
big Red, Shreinfeld, and all the rest of my teachers, come and say hello>e vil water, 
summer camp, beer, barbecues, the grateful dead, Dom, powdered water, the rooster, 
the cup, 1942, most school events (damn the swim meet), all the ntualistic parties 
(Drew's Chappie's. Steve's), Gridlock, acid rain, acid warp, ramblings, and finally 
cheers to last minute work, for if not for that this quote could never have been 

In conlusion: "We're getting housed here, man, I think it's time to call in

I have spent two eventful and memorable years in R.S.G.C. I 
have learned a lot from the school and it is time to say farewell. I will 
remember and miss everything, every single event and every single 
person that 1 have met in these two years. I would like to take this 
opportunity to thank all the teachers who gave me a very fine education. 
Special thanks to Dr. Skalinski, Mr. D' Arcy, Mr. Schreiner, Mr. Van Herk, 
Mr. Rankin, Mrs. Miller, Mr. Orlando, Mr. Pengelly and Mr. Love. Besides 
teachers, there are so many friends to whom I want to express my 
acknowledgments. Henri, Dennis, Michael, Robert and Ali, I really learned 
tons of things from you. Finally, I have to thank my parents and, certainly, 
R.S.G.C, for providing such a nice environment to make me feel so 
comfortable for my first two years spent in Canada.

Well, it's finally over; four years later, after countless hours of work 
for the good doctor and D' Arcy, after a hundred dances, four school trips 
( New York Rocked ), a hundred practices, and soo much more. Well I' d like 
to thank Pho and Dyer for all those late nites of cramming, to my folks who 
always supported me. and to Pegman (bumaclut) who made it so much more 

Well, this is the end of the beginning - Onward and Upward - to 
bigger and better things - if that's possible. RSGC has provided three 
invaluable years - none of which I will ever forget.

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 
shout to Mrs. Mustard, Mr. Pengelly, Mr. Nakatsu (Sensai /NAK), and Mr. 
Love. Remember, as someone once said, "To dream of the person you want 
to be, is to waste the person you are." MVDPSBWF.

Mom, Dad, Blaine, Tory and Jo. What can I say? I grew with you all and if it 
wasn't for all of you I might not be writing this. 1 would also like to thank Mike C'Qu'est-

I would like to thank for helping me develop in ways 1 could never have without you 
guys. To all the teachers 1 would like to thank for if it weren't for you I: a) wouldn't 
be alive to write this, and b) couldn't write this. Finally 1 would like to thank Jo, you 
are a great lover and a great friend and 1 will always remember what we shared. In the 
end every person 1 have met I have gained from, sometimes for the worst but as I look 
back it all turned for the best. As I move on to greener pastures I will always remember 
where 1 took my first steps as a man.

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.

I would like to thank everyone in school and especially Mr. Pengelly ,for 
giving me the chance to study in such a prestigious school. I've learned a lot. 
I'll never forget George, Jeff, Pank, All, Dak, the Robs, John, and the rest of the 
OACs. I wish them good luck and hope for their wishes to be granted. (More 
beer, fewer classes, etc.) [Note: That's not my wish] 1 would love to express 
my deepest gratitude in thanking them. I enjoyed my performance in the school 
Drama, in which I danced (or moved in a random fashion, i.e.. Impromptu), 
vehemently delivered my speech and yawn ... I think it's about time ... I..

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.

Westminster House Captain: Robert Bell 

There are houses and then there is 
the almighty and glorious Westminster 
House. We gentlemen are the creme de la 
creme, the best and the brightest that the 
school has to offer. It is a simple matter 
when we rally to the banner, and don the 
glistening white T-shirts; which allow us to 
become one, with a power unequalled in the 
free world. 

Is it any surprise then that the list 
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 
in humility. 

There are some who point out thai 
the almighty and glorious West house was in 
last place at the end of the first term. Yes, 
this is true but it was all a part of West 
strategy. We are like the great predator of 
the African plains, the jaguar, who upon 
capturing his prey, will play with it, letting it 
escape, giving it hope, just before it springs, 
snapping its neck like a twig. 

Due to the cunning devious ways of 
Mr. G Love (alias the "puppet-master") 
Winchester might be on top of the pecking 
order (I'm writing this in May. I haven't a 
clue what house is in what place). Let them 
have their brief. 1 emphasize BRIEF, moment 
in the spot light. Remember gentlemen, they 
are still our prey. Every passing moment 
they are growing lazier, and more 
complacent. When the time is right we shall 
leap, tearing the cowardly yellow from their 
pedestal on high, replacing it with virtuous |

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.

First Impressions 

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 
and gym.

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 
everything was. 

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 
strange faces. 

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 
explain things.

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.

Senior Soccer 


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.

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.

The volleyball team this year was a great success. We 
played and practiced to our full capability and made good 
progress. We played many good teams and beat almost all 
of them. Our moral was high and we really enjoyed having 
Mr. 0"Learvasourcoach. Overall we had a fun time.

First Hockey 

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.

Ski Team 

The Ski team had a good year' s skiing this winter. 
The conditions throughout the season were not the best, 
but we were very fortunate to have reasonably good 
snow for all our meets. We skied at Craigleith, Devil's 
Glen, Beaver Valley, and Blue Mountain. Our strength 
this year was in our "B" squads. The Junior B Team 
finished first in one meet and placed third for the season. 

Our strongest skiers were Graham McLorie and 
Rob Clark in the Senior team and Dan Mitchell and Dan 
Green in the Junior 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 
Thank You" to all staff and students who 
supported us all season.

Gilette, the best a man can get 

U16 Basketball 

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. 

Monkey see, monkey do. 

Oh God! Please help me make this shot.

Speaker's Union 

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 
"reading" room. 

Bobby and I had a 
phenomenal time this year and we 
would hke to thank all the people 
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

Hair Not Part Of Uniform Middle_ East Explodes 






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 
haveanawfulcomplainingproblem. Ifit 
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 
myDawasn'tmovingforward. Thenhe 
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 
stationbuildingcloseby. Theemployee 
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 
mantheguyjustranoff. Bythetimemy 
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

(lis alibi or the way he dressed. I 
:an recall what he wore at 
Penelope's party. He had on a 
Dluehat and a purple sweater. His 
3ants did not match his top at all. 
rhey were green and he had blue 
>ockson. His shoes were white 
ivith brown laces. 

Strange I thought! But then in 
Tiy business you accept the strange 
ind weird. He was not affected by 
people staring when he was 
lunking for sliced pears in the fruit 
>owl. Penelope thought it was 
lilarious. I thought it was weird. I 
ost my appetite for the food. The 
itrangest thing of all was dunking 
or pears, he went into the bucket 
)f water. 

After the fruit bowl incident 
vlrs. Gertrude Gimble Gumble 
poke to me. I was blinded by the 
)aubles of sparkling blue diamonds 
hat draped her neck. I had to 
eachfor my sunglasses. I really 
ouldn't stand the woman. But 
)eing polite, I listened to her idle 
)anter about her expensive baubles, 
^fter her babbling, she said 
omething I didn't know about 
'enelope. "Penelope," she said 
was a student in my gym classes. 
>he was the best basketball player 
here. She even got it in a couple 
)f times!" 

Hmm I thought. It was 9:00 
).m. lalwaysknow the time 
)ecause I look at my watch every 
10 seconds. Inmy business it's 

always important to know the time. 
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.

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 
weeks ago. 

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 
these days. 

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 

being safe. 

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 
wrong, right?" 


"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 
things, ok?" 

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

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).

Band Trip 

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

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.

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

M) Pound Turkey Unveiled at 
ueen's Quay Last Night 

y: AmrKronfol 

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 
netic engineering. 

"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 
are endless..." 

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 
permanent display.

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?"

Nick Payne 



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- 
Gold Rabbit 

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 
little else. 

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 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 .' 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.
