• he release of a school yearbook is a special event. It remains inspirational
and celebrates the successes, the excitement, and the events that make
. up a school year. 420 students and 80 faculty and staff create many
exceptional memories and this publication is a celebration of all RSGC has to
offer. It captures the Georgian culture and demonstrates the Georgian spirit and
commitment. I have no doubt after flipping through the pages you will be able to
understand what it means to be Georgian.
Of course these publications just don'l appear. Special thanks must be given to
Ms. Emma Roche and our special guest editor Edmund Lee ('05). Together these
two forces have created a vision and have clearly surpassed all expectations.
Emma and Edmund have themselves epitomized the Georgian culture and spirit.
Congratulations and thanks to them both. There work is so impressive.
As well, just in case you didn't notice this yearbook does contain the occasional
photograph. Our resident photographer, Mr. Tom Stevens (when he is not playing
ball hockey, teaching enriched Mathematics, tutoring, getting to know every
student, coordinating the Duke of Ed program or fulfilling his role as Director of
Adinissions) continues to capture every important inoment. What a resource and
what dedication. Thanks Tom.
So read on and enjoy. It has been quite a year and now the memories will never

s you are only on the third page of the book, I hope it
has made a good impression on you thus far. This year
we have decided to malce a completely different book,
one that not only "aligns nicely" with the rest of the past RSGC
yearbooks on your shelf, it also has a completely different layout
than the last 30 or so RSGC yearbooks. Designed to be more of
I a coffee table book, the amount of text is minimized; and instead
J of packing photos, the size of each photo is emphasized. With this
'^ layout, it is my hope that every word in this book will be read, every
I photo will be looked at.
There are many people without whom this book could not have
been completed. First, I would like to thank Eric Ng for giving me
dances, semi, and formal photos, enabling me to complete 12 pages
of this book. I also have to thank Hal Hannaford for giving me this
opportunity; Tom Stevens for most of the spectacular photos in this
book; Chris Yelle from CanGrad Studio for my endless harassment
of photos and protraits, and Emma Roche, Tim Hutton, Michelle
Carter, and Sanaz Ghoreshy for all the help throughout this book,
and especially, keeping my life in the library interesting with the
"behind the scene" tour of RSGC.
If you are still reading this, I have hidden some 'easter eggs' on the
end sheets (that's the page between the first page and the cover).

New Ending to
Seduction by Catherine Gildiner
By Adrian Tkach. Grade 1 1
As spring turned int<i summer. I realized
that it was time to part with the idea that Jactcie
would return. Our last moment had been sealed
with a handshake for God's sake, how passionate
was that? It seemed I was my father's daughter
after all. incapable of an emotional moinent.
I resolved to immerse myself in work.
What had Gardonne said? Something to the
effect that intellectualizalion was my best
defence? So be it. I wasn't about to let myself
slide into some fantasy world in which Jackie
would rescue me from myself. I would have to
rescue me first.
The most diflicult part was deciding what
to do. My most decisive moment had come
when the pardon arrived by courier. I had stared
at the envelope, aware that its four corners held
the start of a new life but somehow unable to
open it. After several deep breaths, I tore it
apart, sliding the paper out with clammy lingers
It was disappointingly unofficial-looking
Perhaps I'd expected it to look like a diploma
with a splashy seal and lots of signatures. After
all. I'd graduated from P4W with plenty of
Nonetheless, I grew to love that pardon.
I framed it and hung it on my bedroom wall
so that it could be the first thing I .saw each
morning. It propelled me into action and kept
me from wallowing in self-pity that I was truly
alone. Alone yes, but free.
I had told Jackie about my desire to write
a book about Freud. All of those years studying
him and our adventure together fairly screamed
for some sort of publication. After making
discreet inquiries, I found a small publisher
of scientific books who was enthralled with
my idea and gave me a small advance. I had
thought to go to the University of Toronto Press
but was unable to shake off the idea that they
would find my notoriety problematic. All of
those students being exposed to a murderer's
musings, albeit a highly educated one, would
not be a good public relations move.
Despite the fact that Anna had
contemplated killing me. I still felt a sort of
kinship with her. She too had felt the unrelenting
need to please her father at great cost to herself.
He had left her unable to form meaningful
attachments to men other than him. What
Freud had done to his daughter was pitiful but
at least she had accomplished something with
her orphanages and analysis of children. She
didn't get the child but she learned to decorate
I too, had to do something meaningful.
My task was hindered by the fact that Anna
had begged me not to reveal her identity or
to Freud's discoveries.
Long years of studying
Freud in the Great White
North had made him
come alive to me and it
felt almost sacrilegious
to diminish his stature.
I would have to separate
him from my loyalty to
father figures and use
my rational, scientific side. Lord knows. I was
raised to be rational.
I started my research in August, resolving
to show how difficult Freud's task was in
prudish Victorian England. At first, I tried to
write in my condo, my notes spread out on a
dining room table that was never used for
cozy dinners. Thoughts would swiri through
my head. No. correct that. People would swirl
through my head: Anna, Bozo, Gardonne, the
Wizard. Freud. Darwin and yes, Jackie. Jackie
unfortunately was the majordomo of the swiri-
a-thon. I needed a change of venue.
It's a funny thing. When I was in my
charming, northern cell I worked quite efficiently
even though I was desperate to get out. Here,
I was out, free and unable to work. I needed a
confined space to concentrate and thus ended
up at Robarts Library, that depressing, concrete
behemoth at U. of T. The students called it Fort
Book which was rather kind in comparison to
what I would have named it.
Armed with a special pass. I claimed a
carrel for myself and dug into my research. The
confinement suited me well and for months I
would ease into the same space, pouring out my
thoughts onto yellow legal pads. By the winter,
I had a manuscript worth editing.
I wrote the book for several reasons, first
of which was to save myself. Maybe, in the far
recesses of my mind, I hoped for a bestseller
that would jolt my family into actually
contacting me. I imagined my father, nodding in
agreement as the scientific
community heaped praise
upon me. My mother
and sisters would invade
Holt's, looking for
suitable outfits to wear at
my book launch. What a
piece of crock!
I wrote the book for
Anna as well. She was
damaged goods, much like
me. We shared an acknowledgement of Freud's
genius and the benefits of psychoanalysis. After
what Freud had done, Anna still maintained that
it was an important treatment. The problem lay
with the analyst, not the form of analysis.
What I wouldn't admit to anyone was the
third reason. Of course, 1 fantasized that Jackie
would show up at a book signing, brimming
with admiration. Why couldn't I stand on my
own two feet without feeling that I needed his
helping hand? Or his approval? Or both? This
infuriated me on a regular basis.
It was early spring again. Idea vs. Morality;
Inventive Thought in a Repressive Age was a
big hit and I was actually invited to lecture at a
convention for psychoanalysts in Toronto. No
one of personal conseqtience had attended my
book launch, no father and certainly no Jackie.
Gardonne had had the incredible gall to send
me a congratulatory note, complete with some
rah-rah statement that he knew "I could do it". I
was just leaving for the hotel when the charming
concierge froin downstairs buzzed me with the
announcement that I had a package. I knew thai
if my outstretched palm had a five dollar bill in
it, he would bring it up to me so 1 asked him l.
do the deed.
It was a large box labeled "fragile'
delivered by FedEx. I looked to see who thi
sender was but there was only an address
Should I open it later, or now? Curiosity woi
me over and I ran a pair of scissors along th
brown, glossy tape that surrounded the package
Inside, encased in white straw was a bubble
wrapped object. I picked it up unwrapping i
with increasingly clumsy fingers. My effort
revealed a beautiful bowl. It was Wedgwoo'
Inside it was a yellow, three-by-fivi
rectangle. On it, were the words, "Only thi
fittest survive". These words made me ache,
had survived but to what advantage? Was thi
Jackie mocking me or telling me something
else. I had no time to decide since I was already
at risk of being late for the lecture. I left the
bowl on the table.
I thought I would be nervous, speaking
in front of so many people, but I wasn't. Once
you've actually seen your subject do what Anna
did in front of me, nothing else is intimidating.
After I finished, I sat on the stage alongside
other lecturers, waiting for them to finish. My
eyes scanned the audience, looking for the
unimaginable. I found him there, row 3, far left,
nodding his head and smiling directly at me.
My other survivor, Jackie.

Thoughts on a Subway Escalator
By Matthew Azevedo, Grade 1 1
When they are fatigued and 1 am rested.
They will regret it later in the day.
As frenzied as stampeding buffalo
Trying to catch the bus before it's gone.
I watch the desperate race up the stairs.
Its slow climb almost putting me to sleep.
I turn and step on the escalator
Their feeble attempt to block my way home.
I step out. the doors barely missing me.
Waking me from my fatigued position.
The routine chime is music to my ears,

In the Presence of Royalty
By Andrew Murphy, Grade 1 1
The day 1 met the queen of hearts.
Is one I shant forget.
My sister said "We should not part".
But never would I let.
That stop me from what 1 did do.
From playing 'neath the stars.
From looking for a simple truth.
But wandring much too far
I saw a cat, a smile so bright.
The sun could finally rest.
A man or two with quite a plight.
Their minds not at their best.
But then I saw the queen of hearts.
The crown upon her head.
Re-arranged with mismatched parts.
All misconceptions shed.
Alas, my name's not Alice,
yet I went down the rabbit hole,
And once you cause such malice.
You'll see no grassy knolls.
So listen to my screams.
And listen to the.se words.
This nightmares never ending.
It's not fun to be disturbed.

The Sky Lit Up
Bv Mure Blouin. Crude 1 1
No sooner had the final numbers of
the countdown left his mouth then the sicy
was swallowed up by a sea of light, and
for just a second, everything was white.
The thought that the explosion might
have permanently blinded him crossed
liis mind and for a moment fear crept
into his brain. Had Samuel Allison been
religious man, he would have fallen to
,iis knees and begged forgiveness, begged
\ or the messiah to return to him his sight
i ike the poor man outside the temple. Had
I .amuel Allison been a religious man, he
I vould have prayed for the voices that
i would have to be silenced to win this war.
i Hut Samuel Allison was not a religious
n. And no god was going to save the
ipic from this monstrosity that they had
I lied here. Now it had tiieir name on it.
Having to delay the test 43 minutes
because of bad weather had put everyone
on edge, and the tension in the room made
it almost difficult to breathe. They had
ilcculod to test the implosion core, the
more complicated and powerful of the
two designs. Nobody worried about the
fission core device. It was simpler, and
.seemed less likely to fail in his opinion.
That and they only had enough LI-235
tor one fission bomb. He had volunteered
to do the actual counting, for the benefit
of the military personnel stationed
farther away from the test sight. Years
of research, secrecy and sacrifice were
reduced to a ten second countdown.
It was not so much the light that
terrified him, but the silence. There
were about 40 seconds of it, while the
brilliant clouds continued to ri.se. It was
the strangest duality he had ever known:
serenity and horror intertwined. For
the first time in years, his mind went
completely blank. He couldn't take his
eyes off the expanding cloud. It was
mushroom shaped, but didn't hold its
form for very long. For the first time in
his life, Samuel Allison acknowledged
the downfall of man: genius.
A rude awakening from his trance-
like state came with the arrival of the
Shockwave. He was almost knocked to
the ground by the riot that followed.
The calm before the storm was over
and the ear-splitting roar filled his
skull. The heat was almost as violent.
"My god. we 're not far back
enough." he thought, but soon his fears
were put to rest. The horrid, grinding
noise that gnawed at his skull like an
army of rats stopped. And again, for the
second time, silence crept into his soul.
He took off his dark glasses and looked
around to see how the test had affected
the others. Their facial expressions must
have resembled his own, he imagined.
A mixture of satisfaction, wonder, terror
and relief showed on all of their faces.
Oppenheimer stood up and smiled.
"Tt worked" he said quietly,
the words catching in his
throat, and sat back down.
"Now we're all sons of
bitches." said Bainbridse. Allison
couldn't help but agree.
Samuel cannot stop thinking about
that moment. Even years later the test
will always be on his mind. He can see
himself in the same bunker, watching
the tower, counting down until the
detonation. Sometimes he wonders
what would have happened if the device
failed. He pictures himself climbing the
tower to find out what had gone wrong.
Sometimes he has nightmares of himself
reaching the top, to check for errors
and the bomb explodes. That heat he
remembers comes back to horrify him
once more. But after hearing the accounts
of survivors -of what he helped unleash-
he's no longer sure he doesn't deserve
that. After all, dreams are much less
disfiguring than the burns he has seen.
That idiot McCarthy is on
another rant. His target this time
is Oppenheimer. Lately his former
colleague had become increasingly
vocal in his political oppositions and
fomier ties with the Coinmunist party.
"And what better way to distract
the American people than to turn them
against their own kind?' he thinks. "It was
bad enough that Frank Oppenheimer. a
physicist almost as brilliant as his brother.
Robert, was reduced to raising cattle
by the bloody House of Un-American
Activities, but now they're using him us
a platfonn to attack other brilliant minds.
Maybe this political virus is the fate that
awaits us all." Allison wonders as he gets
up from the armchair. He has always been
an advocate of free, unrestricted research
access for all atomic scientists. His role
in establishing the Bulletin of the Atomic
Scientists was sure to get him some
attention from McCarthy's witch-hunt.
He groans, switching off the radio.
Politics would have to wait until after
breakfast. In his hurry and carelessness,
he neglected the eggs he was cooking,
and they started to blacken. The charring
smell entered his nose and without
warning he was back in Hiroshima.
His small kitchen became the black,
apocalyptic wasteland that used to be a
city. He remembers the hospital rooms.
The horrifying wounds were right there,
in front of his eyes. The dull wail that
filled those makeshift ho.spitals fills
his skull to bursting once again.
The horrifying flashback ends as
abruptly as it had started. Samuel drops
his coffee cup, and it smashes on the
hardwood floor. The heat around his toes
brings him back to reality in time to see
his eggs burned beyond recognition.
"I guess I'm skipping breakfast this
morning." he thinks as he re-arranged
his tie. It is still early in the morning,
but he can already tell that it will be a
brilliantly sunny day. "But it's always
sunny for the victors" he says out loud
as he grabs his briefcase. Besides, it
didn't matter how bright the sun was,
it would always seem dull compared to
the test. The day that changed his life
forever, and the events that followed
it left him with bums that not even the
most skilled surgeon could ever treat.

Habitat for Humanity build
The Habitat for Humanity movement
was founded in 1976 in Americus.
Georgia. The program developed from
the concept of "partnership housing"
where those in need of adequate shelter
work side by side with volunteers from
all walks of life to build simple, decent
houses. This year, three students from
Royal St. George's College and two
students from Havergal College built a
brick and mortar home in Zambia.
Throughout the fall unci winter. Eddie
Beqaj.Jordan Hyde. Matthew Muncaster.
Thomas Pepper. Michael Sherman
and Mr. Alex .Shum, worked hard to
rai.se awareness about the challenges
confronting families in East Africa and
the lack of access to education and safe
drinking water. Together with RSGC's
Guild. Prefects, key mcinbers from the
RSGC parent community, teachers and
students from both the senior and junior
school, as well as friends and corporate
sponsors, the .school raised over $94,000
for Free the Children. During March
Break, the team traveled to Kenya and
Tanzania, joined with other students
from across the North America,
visited several Kipsigis and Maassai
communities, and worked with Free the
Children to help build a new nursery
for a primary school. 'I'he funds raised
will pay for the construction not only
of eight inore schoolhouses but also
provide for new washrooitis, teacher's
salaries, classrooin furniture, access to
safe drinking water, medical supplies as
well as alternative income opportunities
for inany fainilics. Featured in the
Toronto Star, and interviewed by
Radio Canada hitemational, the team's
account of the expedition spread the
story of how our school community
came to together to help others across
the globe and reflects the growing
reach of "community service" at
RSGC. Thanks to everyone for their
encouragement, generosity and Mip|iort.

"'Traveling to Africa completely
opened my eyes to how large the world
really is. and how we are so easily
caught up in our own bubble of issues
as we sit casually and watch the world
go by. It showed me how insignificant
the little things I used to worry about
day to day really are. The big picture
is so much more important.'"
- Matthew Muncaster
"My trip to Africa w as one of the
most amazing experiences of my life.
It was about building relationships
with local communities. The first hand
experiences with the school children
and the people from the communities
were what made the trip so amazing."
- Jordan Hyde ^r ^
"Playing with the children at the
school was my favorite part. At times
all the children rushing towards. ^^
you was overwhelming, but. it \ ^B
was always heart-wanning."
- Michael Sherman
"Being able to say I gave something
solid to the Motony community and see
the sunrise at 6000m. that's what has
made my trip worth it in every wa>'.
I would do it again in a heartbeat."
- Thomas Pepper
"I would like to thank everyone who
made this trip the success that it
was from our donors, to the staff at
RSGC. to my family, and to the kids
in Africa. I will never forget you!"

On Tuesdays, you can fin^^SGC's climbers at the
Rock Oasis climbing gym at Front and Bathurst. Our
group has climbers ranging from newbies working
on top-rope to returning lead-climbers (like Cam,
Andrew, Andrew, and Alex). Everyone worked
together, belaying and encouraging one another
through challenging problems on climbs as high as
60' at the indoors climbing gym. We trained, bulked
up, improved our fitness, endurance, muscle tone
and flexibility indoors and had a blast, but we also
took advantage of the beautiful spring weather this
year for a two-day course outdoors at Rattlesnake
Point and, with the help of Andrew Coffey from
Adventureworks, we learned how to safely setup
our own climbs over the cliff and tested our skills
against the rockface at this specatcular part of the

The Speaking Union has enjoyed quite a successful
year. Both of our school tournaments, the Challenge
Saucer and Will's Words, went very well, with our
competitors performing admirably. Also, with the
introduction of free pizza in our weekly House league
debates, attendance rates have been through the roof!
Everyone who competed in inter-school tournaments
did very well, and some of the highlights are as follows.
Alexis Negroe won the Senior Fulford Trophy, beating
out some of the best debaters from Independent
schools across the province. At the International
Independent Schools Public Speaking Competition,
held in Aurora this year, Erik Reed inanaged to place
7th among the other Canadians in the tournament. This
excellent result won him an invitation to compete on
the Canadian team at The Worlds Individual Debating
and Public Speaking Competition held in Capetown,
South Africa. At this prestigious tournament, which
was attended by the best speakers from 15 different
countries, Erik managed to place 12th overall. In early
April, Sam Sibailis, Michael Black and I attended The
Norah McRae Public Speaking Tournament. We have
won it for the past two years, but this year missed 1st
place by less than one third of a point. Congratulations
to all of our members on a fantastic year!

We worked on the spefi'bag,
pounded the heavy bag, shadow
boxed, skipped rope, and, yes,
even sparred [naturally head
gear and mouthguards were a
must]. Every Wednesday, the
RSGC Boxing Club headed over
to the Bloor Street Boxing Club
at Bloor and Dundas Street West
to be taken through the paces by
our boxing expert, Colin. This
was a superb workout, a great
way to improve coordination,
and an excellent way to gain self-
confidence. We will continue
this club next year and want to
encourage as many students,
especially those in the lower
grades, to come out.

After school, Arnold
entered RSGC's Fitness and
Technology Centre to put
their muscles to the test. We
learned about proper lifting
technique, workout routines,
and diet. We also had the
opportunity to listen to a guest
speaker who was an expert in
the realm of diet and nutrition.
Great strength and muscle
gains were made by a number
of dedicated individuals. Let's
raise our protein shakes to
toast another successful year.

To kick off this yearbook
I would like to thank my
parents for forcing me to
go to RSGC. At the time
1 in Gr. 8, I thought that
' - * RSGC would be the worst
j^ four years of my life:
trekking from the Etobs,
not going to public high school, uniform, etc... Now I
look back and think that this was one of the best choices
my parents could have ever made for me. I would also
like to thank Mr. Shum for his extensive extra help with
me and all the grads in Calc, Dr. Leatch for showing me
that it's better to take a class with him than to have a
spare. All the other Prefects of 07 (best prefects ever!)
for all the hard work we put into Sensation Knights,
338, Semis, Prom, Spirit Days, these guys deserve a lot
of respect and have honestly, set the bar. Also like to
thank, the amazing talents of Lucas, working together
to make the best Thursday assemblies, movies, skits and
scripts. 1 have had so much fun running assemblies and
seeing guys laugh at the videos and skits that we pull
out. Remembering the awesome cab rides with Hues and
Reed (blasting TRANCE) treating it like our BP and AP,
the sick jams every week, Bowlby's place, all the laughs
with Tom, squamish, outward bound, Brymer's chuckles
and all the nights out with the guys, making me wish we
still had gr. 13. Thanks a lot Knights!
I have to thank my parents for everything, and also for
helping me with school when I let them. Thanks to all
my teachers and faculty for helping me through it all,
and special thanks to the ones who saw me through the
whole process, especially those who helped keep me in
it. To the guys, it's hard to believe it's over. Seems like
yesterday that I was getting detention from Mr. Denis
in Gr. 3. Some seriously
good times this year...
grad trip. ..baby carriage...
too much... Thanks for
I everything Tan.
The beautiful thing about
learning is that nobody can
,r take it away from you.
"Feed Me and Fan Me with
leaves from a palm tree"
Thanks to everyone who
supported me regardless of
my actions, you all helped
me an unfathomable
amount, that's the truth.
PEACE AND LOVE
I started at RSGC in grade
9, and I have had four
great years. The best part
of my experience was all
of the clubs and activities"
I was able to participatt
in. A quick shout-ou
J I to all of my basketbal
I teammates, especially
those who have beer
trying to win a championship since grade 9, we finallj
did it. Congratulations! Thanks to all of the teachers
who made my RSGC experience what it was. Whethe
it was supervising a club, or coaching a teain, or helpinfi
me understand difficult material. All of the teachers hav3
helped to give my classmates and me a great four years;
Finally, special thanks to my parents, without them 1
never would have been able to attend RSGC and hav«
such an amazing high school experience.
I would like to thank
everyone all the great
friends I have made at
RSGC over my high
school career. I appreciate
how the school has given
me every opportunity
to succeed, play sports,
and prepare me for the future. Thank you to everyone
who I have played on a sports team with. Winning the
basketball championship this year will be .sornething 1
remember. RSGC has allowed me to become productive
and has taught me to balance school and all of my extra
curricular activities. So much has happened in our short
four years of high school, we have seen the best and worst
of everyone in our grade. Finally I would like to thank all
my teachers, and especially Mr. D'Arcy for inspiring me
to challenge myself and not stop learning. Overall, thanks
to everyone in the RSGC community for these amazing
last four years.
Vd like to thank My parents for sending me to RSGC.
They have been awesome all throughout my RSGC career.
Thank you to my teachers. A SPECIAL thank you to
Coach Loucks for giving me COUNTLESS opportunities
for basketball at my time at rsgc. The greatest Coach I've
ever had and an outstanding person !!!!!! Thanks Coach ! ! !
Thanks to Ms Wagar because her inspiration and shine got
me through RSGC with a successful end. And Thanks to
Ms Kaye for helping me in hieh school. FINALLLYY to
the boyssss thanks for the
jamss it was a good final
year. Looking forward to
PS. Thank you to Mr.
VH for making sure I
accomplish my goals!!!

To all the amazing people who have pushed, sometimes
hard enough to border on assault, me to always do my
best: thank you. Your friendship and belief in my potential
never cease to impress or inspire me. To my parents who
I can't believe have put up with me for all this time; you
guys have always given me your full support, have always
been understanding and never stopped believing in me.

It's been a while. I've
learned so much and lost
I so little. It's easy to forget
! the bad times because
around the corner. The
skits, the dances, the girls.
I couldn't imagine getting kk ,,\ /■
through my high school career without my friends and
teachers. The dance offs, the galas, the judo tournaments.
Mr. Hannaford who never stopped supporting me and
who never left his youth. The plays, a funny thing/twelfth
night. Dr. Newton who can simply do anything, but for
some reason chose teaching. I'm so thankful for that. The
12 minute runs, the klotz jams, the dictionary wars. Of
course Mr. Darcy, who didn't just teach me about binary,
but about life and discipline. I'll never forget his lessons.
The chapel speeches, the awkward assembly jokes. I can't
forget about my social worker, friend, and high school
sweetheart Ms. Kaye. Thank you for spending your time ^^jUjQrn Chon
helping me find out who I am. Even though it's kinda
your job. The lipsync performances with my boy TWW Time flies. . .
(we made history bud). Last shout out goes to my elite
learn of indestructible prefects. I hate to brag, but I have
no choice. Even through moments of misery, sadness and
despair you guys kept on truckin' and kept me smiling. If
I were born a girl, I'd marry you all. The Michael Jackson
impressions and of course the #1 hit videos with Carl
"C-Note" Noel and the infamous Snorlax Productions.
I didn't always enjoy taking responsibility, but it came ^
with the job description. No matter how upset I got, I
discovered who I was at this school, therefore I am
thankful. I guess Uncle Ben Parker was right. With great
power comes great responsibility.
Can't stop...cuz it won't stop.
The past four years at RSGC have been an enjoyable
experience. It was hard changing to a different school...
after attending my previous one for nine years, bul
everything worked out fine. I've been able to get to know
some of classmates well, and I've made lots of friends,
I'll never forget always going out for lunch with Brendan,
Matthew, Nick, Andrew, and Mark to Sushi, Thai, Pizza,
Subway, and George's. Nor can I forget all the wasted
hours trying to do work during my spares in Grade 11-12
I with Nick Latremoille.
During my four years al
RSGC, I've had som<
great experiences, such,
as; the full contact soccer
games in Squamish and
the ball hockey games
on the tarmac. I've had
some great teachers that
definitely made my life at
■ RSGC more enjoyable and
entertaining. Notables include: Mr. Reid, making classes
as enjoyable as possible. Dr. Leatch, for his rules of life]
and his various plans for making money, Mr. Farrar, for
his 'this day in history', Mr. Shum, for always trying to
make calculus humourous and enjoyable, Mr. Donnelly,
who's teaching style can sometimes be erratic, but a nice
guy nonetheless, and Mr. Holdsworth, who did his best to
make English a laugh (Best wishes!).
To conclude, I like to thank all my classmates and teachers
for making RSGC an experience I'll never forget. I also
cannot forget my parents for allowing me to go to private
school for 1 3 years after being bored in JK.
Its been a long journey
with its ups and downs, but
if I had to take one thing
away from my experience
it's that 'what doesn't kill
you makes you stronger'
Fortitudinem, Pietatem et
I My time at RSGC has been
quite rewarding. I have
been here since Grade 7,
and have enjoyed my time
here. I would like to take
this chance to thank my
parents for continuously
' I supporting me throughout
my studies, and I would
also like to thank my
teachers who have helped me along the way. At RSGC I
have gained invaluable knowledge which will aide me in
my future endeavors.
I My last four years at
RSGC have been some of
the best times of my life.
I'd first like to thank my
family for sending me to
this great school, for being
there during all the good
times and for supporting
me during the bad times.
I'd also like to thank every
one of my teachers throughout the years, with a special
thanks to Dr. Leatch and Mr. Rankin: you two taught
me many important lessons in my final years and always
managed to make class hilarious. A special thanks to Mr.
Lee and Mr. Donnelly for your support both on and off
the ice. Thanks to Ms. Kaye and Ms. Wagar: you girls
are like nroms really cool sisters to me. Lastly, I'd like to
thank all of my RSGC boys, both the ones graduating and
the ones not fortunate to be here with us today. I'll never
forget you guys and the ruckuses in grade 10 Siewert/
Ride French class, Italy trip '06, Montreal hockey trips,
Dominican trip, and all the crazy weekends.
I have had a great 7 years at St. George's. I have met
people who I know will be my great friends for life, gained
a great education, and had the opportunity to be taught
by an amazing faculty. To Mr. D'Arcy, Ms. Miller. Mr.
Hannaford, Mr. Doerksen, Ms. Ghoreshy, Mr. Fowler,
Fr. Donkin, Ms. Kaye, Mr. Jamieson, Ms. Buchanan and
Ms. Wagar, I can only offer my true thanks. You have all
helped me and taught me a great deal during my time here.
I especially want to thank
my parents, without them |
1 would never have been i
able to have such a great i
high school experience.
II would like to thank my
mother and the rest of my
family first and foremost
for helping me through
my high school career. It's
been six years and I can't
think of a better place
y,\ 1 to spend it than RSGC.
■— ' ^ ' Whether on the ice, on
the field, in the portable,
or sitting in class the years past have been ones that I
will reflect on forever. The things I have learned go far
beyond the classroom's walls. I would sincerely like
to thank the teachers who have helped me on the way:
Mr. Doerkson, Dr. Leatch, Mr. Ackley, Mr. Donnelly,
Mrs. Miller, Mr. Reid, Mr. Lee and Hal. Finally, to my
hombres: WB, AB. HO, JL, PK, IS, SB, BT, CJ, DL,
DD, GS. CR. MB, MC (JD).
It has been a great six
years here at RSGC.
During these years I have
made some good friends
and had some good times.
I feel that St. George's
has prepared me for the
next stage of my life but
it is sad to be leaving the school after spending so many
years here. I would like give a shout out to John V.,
Coach Loucks, and Mr. Van Herk for their help along
the way, but most of all I would like to thank my parents
for sending me to St. George's.
Andrew S Harris
Over my eight years at Royal St. George's College, there
have been a lot of ups and downs, but I'm happy to be
leaving the school in such a positive mindset. There are
a lot of people that have made my years here enjoyable
(mom, dad, my dog Charlie), but nothing can compare
to the hard work of my teachers, including Ms. Richter,
Mr. Algarvio, Mr. Shum, Ms. Somerville, Mr. Reid,
Father Donkin, Mr. Fitzpatrick, Mr. Wade-West, and a
huEC thank you to Mr. Martin. There are no words I can
I use to describe my thanks
,. I other than 'I'll schlep on
,. I over someday with my axe
' (instrument) to visit.'
^ I I'd also like to thank a lot of
my friends who've always
been there when I was up
ior down, especially Nick
Perrin. Other thanks go
out to Pinkton, Mawnan,
^^^^^■^ Bowlbs, Smiggs, Chong,
MLS, Latty, Almonds, and Sam for making our Grad
Year such a success.
Some other highlights include the RSGCBHL with Mr.
Darcy and Sense! Miller, Japan '04 with the band, Zambia
'07 with Ms. Roche and Gledhill, and cross-country since
I came to RSGC back in Grade Five. Everything was
amazing, and I'll never forget my time here.

pound" sessions in AP "
economics or Mr. Lee's
grade 12 accounting, also
known as "The best class ^^^^^^^\
of the day." I would like
to take this opportunity to thank a few of my teachers:
Mr. Doerksen for challenging and supporting me in AP
Calculus, Mr. Van Herk for not only an incredible AP
statistics class but for all the guidance you have given
me, Mrs. Miller and Dr. Newton for teaching the best
English and AP Writer's Craft courses. Dr. Leatch for
an unforgettable Canadian History class. Finally, I would
like to thank the rest of my teachers, from grade 4 to grade
12 who I haven't mentioned, for making my experience
here at RSGC not only amazing; but memorable.
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who helped
and supported me throughout my high school career,
especially my parents for convincing me to go to RSGC
in the first place. I have thoroughly enjoyed my four
years and certainly will not soon forget them. I will
always remember the great times I had on different sports
teams, especially the volleyball team, as well as the many
experiences gained from the variety of school trips. I
will always be grateful
for my time at RSGC and
will cherish my many
memories of this school
for the remainder of my
Go Knights Go!
First off, I'd like to thank my parents for talking me out
of going to De La Salle for high school. You've always
known what's best for me and I'm grateful for your
judgment, which has always led me in the right direction.
Although I resented your decision at first. I quickly came
to realize that Royal Saint George's was the perfect fit

So much has changed
since my first day. Only
in retrospect can I really
appreciate the sacrifices
that we're made by my
parents, my teachers and
my friends that culminated
in the past six years of
my life. I want to start with my biggest thank you; to my
friends; for being there, the good times and bad and helping
me when I wanted it least and needed it most. I'm proud
to say that I'm graduating with this class. I owe so many
thank yous to so many people for tolerating my antics; a
big thanks to Algarvio, for getting me on the right track
where it all started, and Girvan and Newton, Reid and the
infamous V, Sarallas and Dr. Leatch. I'm glad I can look
back and love my time in high school. A final best of luck
to my brother in his years ahead.

done more for me than I
ever expected. The great
guys in my year and the
great teachers I've had
have made it a wonderful
experience. RSGC has

should work harder at. I
have to thank my teachers for guiding me to academic
success I had never considered inyself capable of. and
wouldn't have been without their help. I have to thank all
the guys in my year for making it a fun time, especially
when class got a little dull. Its been a long haul but a good
one, and I've got more from RSGC than I could have
ever hoped for. It has been, in the immortal words of Mr.
D'Arcy, "So Good!"
That first day I started at RSCG in grade nine seems so
long ago. I have had so many great experiences and
made a lot of good friends over my four years. I am really
going to miss this place. But at the same time I realize it
is time for me to move on and I can't wait to get away
to university. I would like to give special thanks to all
my friends, you know who you are, and I hope see you
around. Thanks to Mr. D'arcy, if it wasn't for you and

Wow, has it really been 10 years since I came to RSGC?
It has felt like a dream. I still remember the days of grade
3 when Mr. McEIroy told us stories of his youth and
threatened to throw kids out the window, but not wanting
to hurt the payment, haha. In those days we still had to
write exams, which, I might add, was a hoirible experience
especially when you're that young, lol. However, these
have really been the greatest years of my life.
Over the past 1 years here, I have made many friends.
many who I have become
very close to and I have ■
also made close ties with
many of my teachers. The
best years of my life have
been spent at this school
and I have always had
the support of my friends,
family and teachers, and
I would like to take the
opportunity to thank
everyone. Without these
people by my side I would not have been able to develop
into person I am today.
What a long strange trip it's been. But one that I would
never want to miss out on. I was only at RSGC for four
\ears. but they were some of the best years of my life.
The whole thing went by so fast, and it's been full of great
memories that will last a life time. All those people who
have "Silent memories' beside their name were probably
just astounded by how fast the year went by and didn't get

I would, however, like
to thank my parents for
getting me through the
time at RSGC, and more importantly giving me the
chance to go to such a great school. I also want to thank
Ms. Girvan for being one of the best teachers I've ever
had, and also for being such a great advisor. I also want
to thank Dr. Leatch for getting me into university with
his great marks. (A piece of advice for anyone going into
Gr. 11 or 12, take as many Leatch courses as possible.)
MS. WAGAR, how would I have gotten through Gr. 12
without you. (Another piece of advice for anyone at the
school, make friends with Ms. Wagar, anyone who is will
tell you why.)
My four years at RSGC have been the best years of my
life. I have grown in so many ways, and I can't thank
everyone enough for that. All my teachers have been
fantastic in making my experience so great. Thank you
Mr. V for showing me the way and being as much a friend
as a teacher. I'd also like to thank Mr. Reid for always
being cheerful and making my classes more entertaining.
My parents have been fantastic as well, so thank you

Over the past ten years at RSGC. not only have I met
some of my best friends, but made some of my greatest
memories. I remember constantly fearing Dr. Barlow,
having Mr. McElroy threaten to through me out the
window/, Mr. Thornbury as my home form teacher, and
making a CD with A Band. But the majority of these
memories took place in the senior school. I'll never forget
teams, and the horrors of I
A Lakota Vision. Of I ^ .
course I'll never forget ^
my tumble in Squamish,
or that ambulance ride
to Mount Sinai. But not
everything at RSGC was
fun a games. Looking back
on those ten years. I can
see that I've had the most
knowledgeable and helpful ,
teachers who are always '
there to give a helping hand. Big thanks going out to Mr.
D'Arcy, not just for BTTIO. or the countless hours of
ball hockey, but grade 1 1 Computer Engineering, by far
one of the most inspirational courses I've ever taken. But
one last thanks going out, and by far the biggest. These
ten years wouldn't have been anything if it wasn't for the
constant support from my parents. The>'ve always been
there to keep me motivated and not let me fall behind.
Build something with wood and it will burn, build
something with stone, and it will crumble, build
something with passion and it will last a lifetime.
I came to this school
in Grade 9 and found it
hard to adapt to the new
classes, for example when
a teacher would walk into
the class I would almost
always forget to stand up .
I also initially found it hard
to refer to teachers by "sir"
or "ma'am", but it quickly
became second nature. The R.S.G.C. environment really
helped excel and reach my full potential and I am grateful
for that. I would like to thank: my parents for sending me
here; Mr. D'Arcy who was my teacher for three years
and also helped me win too ball hockey championships;
Mr. VanHerk for helping me get to university; and Mr.
Fowler my previous advisor who gave me confidence to
choose a difficult schedule in my graduating year.

"Just doin my time"
To me, Royal St. Georges
College is a place where
growth takes place. Growth '
as both an individual and
as a community. If I were
to describe what I see as
a chapel surrounded by
a prison with one word,
it would be devotion.
With natural growth and
maturity comes the development of relationships, and an
understanding of what it is to be a part of a community.
Over the four years I have spent here at St. Georges, I have
found the devotion of my teachers, the staff, and my peers
and friends to be outstanding. Everyone, be it teachers
or students all have a lot to learn from one another, and
within a brilliant tight knit group such as us Georgians,
its ea.sy to get ahead in the world simply by opening your
eyes and ears to let leak in the gold that is the knowledge
of our collective community. Thank you to all. You have
all left me with a truly existential experience.
Life, love, school, work, play; they're all like a box
of chocolates. You always know what you're gonna
get because of the little rubric that's awaiting right in
between the lid of the box and the pad that sits on top of
. . .and don't you hate it when you go in for
a handshake mid conversation and both parties involved
in the shake try letting go at separate times, and you wind
up getting this kind of tug-of-war, pulsing handshake that
just feels altogether awkward? Perhaps this is why Mr.
Hannaford always reinforces eye contact.
For now, and forever a Georgian and a knight.

< This one's true.
Ten years ago, when I first
came to St. George's I had
no idea what the school had
in store for me. Whether it
was learning how to tie a
tie. playing on the tannac
at recess, screaming our
chants (from RSGC...
KNIGHTS! to Dieter
ones), becoming a Steward, or getting elected as a Prefect;
some of my greatest memories have been at St. George's.
First and foremost, I would like to thank my parents for
always being there for me and supporting me in all my
endeavors. My many thanks to all of the teachers and
staff; you are one of a kind. My special thanks to Mr.
Hannaford, Mr. VanHerk, Mr. Rankin, Mr. James Lee,
and Ms. Somerville - you have all inspired me in one
way or another. I would like to thank all my friends,
we've finally reached the end of this chapter in our lives,
lets show the world what we can do from here. Finally, I
would like to thank the entire RSGC community, whose
values, character, and energy have all become an integral
part of my personality.
Thanks for all the amazing memories.
J It's really quite hard to
I summarize all of high
school in so few words.
RSGC has so much to
offer and it's been a thrill
I to be a student here for
the past six years. In that
time I've made some great
friends, played on some great sports teams, and been able
to pursue the drums further, on top of numerous other
activities. Thanks a lot to my parents for their support
and for sending me to RSGC, my friends for all the good
times, my coaches for helping me keep the balance in
my life, and to all my teachers for making my academic
pursuits more enjoyable. A particular thanks goes out to
Mr. Lee for Sr. Hockey, Mr. Van Herk for all his work
helping me get into college, Mr. Hannaford for being
who he is, Mr. Schroeder for the golf team. King Leatch
for sharing his vast knowledge, Ms. Somerville, Mr.
Stevens, Mr. Holdsworth, and for anyone else who I have
inconveniently forgotten. It's going to be hard to leave
RSGC; this place will remain with me forever and I'm
sure I will miss it a lot. Hopefully I can find some solace
by golfing in January next year and wearing shorts year
It's been ten years since my first day at RSGC, and what
surprises me most isn't the time that's passed, but how
much I have changed. One thing I'm sure of is that it
will be hard to leave, as there are so many things about
this place I have come to love. I'm not certain any of
us yet fully appreciate our unique traditional values,
including chapel, the services, and the choir, where I have
spent many wonderful years of my life. I've had many
unbelievable teachers who have shown me so much about
life, whether they know it
or not. I've also received I T. ^ _
outstanding support, in all J ^
respects, from my family; ' -
for which I am eternally
grateful. Then there are the
boys who have made these
ten years so memorable.
All the fun times and crazy
stunts; I wouldn't have had
it any other way. "Non, je
ne regrette rien." It's been
quite the ride guys and I'll miss all of you. So, my final
message is: follow your calling and do what you love
most. As the Gnostics urged, 'Knowing Thyself truly is
the most exigent overarching task for each of us during
this long, strange trip we call Life. Wherever we end up,
may success and happiness lie in our future.
"Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives
extraordinary." - Dead Poets' Society (1989)
In life there are always good times and hard times. The
greatest periods in our lives are those where the good
outweigh the bad. My time at RSGC was one of those. I
will never forget my time within these halls. I will always
remember the great times I've had and the friendships
I've made that will last throughout the years. I will always
be able to look back at my life at RSGC and smile warmly
and remember those happy times, good and bad. For that
I thank everyone, my teachers who have helped me get
through my classes, to my |
friends who shared my I
experiences, and to my |
faiTiily who has helped me
along. So good by RSGC,
you will always have a
special spot in the back of

ne of the great pleasures you can
enjoy and one I would encourage
you all to partake is to understand
and study the origin of words.
Members of the board and Georgian
Parents Guild, esteemed colleagues, parents,
guests, and most importantly the class of 2007.
Years ago I remember learning about the
origin of the word "sincere". During the era of
Michelangelo, white marble was the sculptor's
stone of choice. The problem was that the value
would be lost if there was a crack or even a
scratch in the final work. In order to disguise
any such imperfection, wax was melted and put
on each crack. The Latin word "sine" (without)
and "cere" (wax) together was combined to
form the word sincere. The translation being
But there remains one word or term that
poses a dilemma when one attempts to arrive at
a definition. It's difficult to discover the origin
and true meaning of the word Georgian. To most
of us the meaning seems obvious, we can sense
it, feel it, and clearly it is the essence of what
we are all about, yet no one takes the time to
define it. ..of course. The reality and advantage
and beauty is that we don't have to define it.
The meaning originates within the heart not
some obscure fourth dimensional concept. The
definition of Georgian starts with the heart and
continues within the deepest part of all of us.
Yes it is quite spiritual and if one uses it as an
adjective there is no need to explain. Something
Georgian is... well... Georgian.
And yes, gentlemen the class of 2007 you
are now Georgians. Whether you like it or not
you have a label that will remain with you
forever. And you individually must go forth
and figure out what it means.
Now, far be it for me to suggest that you
need any help, or advice. After all the wisdom
accumulated by a 17 or 18 year old is totally
complete. So at the risk of being a trifle
presumptuous, let me try to help you as you and every staff member. Colle

and every staff member. Collectively you will
never find a more dedicated, professional or
caring group. It continues to be a huge honour
for me to work closely with them all.
You can learn a lot from these folks. It
goes without saying that Dr. Leatch's "top 10
rules of life" should dominate your lifestyle and
choices, but beyond this blinding glimpse of the
obvious there were other lessons. Since we are
assembled here in our historic, significant and
beautiful chapel let me give you a couple of
their strengths and weaknesses, clear about
what they can accomplish, and not afraid to
do the right thing. That's
pretty cool. |^
Georgians embrace 'V^
the cultural themes * ♦!,
and expressions of ^ lAi-«-
values that you were
continually reminded of
during your career here.
Manners maketh men, the
Georgian code of respect,
responsibility, and voice ,
just makes sense. You don't
hear these concepts day in
and day out to waste your
time. Adhering to these
principles (and forgive the u | |_|
business metaphors) gives '^^' rnuni
you a clear distinctive HeadlTiastei
advantage. They ensure
sustainability, they become your key success
factors and they do increase your overall
competitiveness. You see, true Georgians can't
help but become successful.
There are other thoughts or ideas I hope you
take with you as you embark on this next phase
of your life. And let me take some lessons that
you heard this year. Lessons from your faculty.
And while I am at this point I would like to
acknowledge the value and contribution of each
Mr. Farrar reminded you of the importance
of faith. Remember his claim. Don't use faith
to escape from reality - use
it to deal with reality. Strive
hard to understand your own
faith, embrace it, and use it to
Jil^ help guide you through those
difficult times that lurk ahead.
Mr. Fitzpatrick reminded
-. us all that each of us, even
Mr. Donnelly, possess unique
• talents and his plea was to
recognize the talents in others.
, I have always said we must
continually force ourselves to
look for people's strengths,
which enables us to tolerate
^ . and accept their weaknesses.
atord ^„j jy3t in case you didn't
Address notice, we all have glaring
Finally, I have a vivid memory of Father
David's chapel following the Virginia Tech
tragedy. His talk that day was also a tribute to
June Callwood and of course the theme was
ultimately the power of kindness. Years ago
I made a commitment to my wife Susan to
remind the graduating class each year about
the value of kindness. Of course Father David
reminded us about the power of kindness. He
wondered out loud about how many of these
tragedies have actually been prevented by acts
of legitimate, unselfish, random kindness. So
gentlemen as Mr. O'Leary would beg you in
the junior school please just be kind.
Now you are off. Our mission statement
makes it clear that we have an obligation to
make every effort to ensure you are prepared
for university. Don't forget your roots. Don't
forget your parents. Through the ups, downs,
miscommunications, angst, stress, emotional
outbursts, misunderstandings, vheated
discussion, throughout all this there has been
one constant and that is their unwavering and
unconditional love. Gentlemen, you are going
to need your parents more than ever. Please
don't take them for granted.
And don't forget each other. I have watched
your class grow closer and closer with each
passing year. The friendships are strong but
friendships need a lot of work and commitment
if they are going to survive. It's not easy being a
good friend but worth every bit of effort.
In closing, underneath your crest is the
Latin expression scientate pietate: knowledge
and duty. Thus your final responsibility. Take
with you what you have learned, go forth and
use it wisely. I have no doubt you will make
us look good, we are already proud and please
remember above all. ..you are Georgians.
Goodbye, good luck and god bless.
