• he release of a school yearbook is a special event. It remains inspirational 



2006 



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).

The Bootlegger Ball was an incredible Georgian event where family 
& friends came together to celebrate the spirit of the College! Guests 
were transported back in time to one of the most explosive decades 
in history - the 1920's, the days of spats, flappers, and jazz!

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 
distinction. 

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 
the cradle. 

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 
Darwin's contribution 
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 




touJC&n^ 




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' 
blue. 

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, 



Jazzy Sound 
By Chris Hamel. Grade 12 

A chilled jive 
becomes alive 

as the slow 

beat thrives 

A new sound 
emerges around 
as the percussion 

beat pounds 

A jazzy appeal 

is made real 

as the sax 

delivers a squeal 

A chilled vibe 
tingles inside 

as the slow 

beat slides

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 
Niagara Escarpment.

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 

Schwarzenegger hopefuls 

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.

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.

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 
j somethinggoodwasalways 

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.

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,

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. 

"The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet. "

"Education is learning I 

what you didn't even * 

know you didn 'f know. " 

I will never forget Mr. i 

Donnelly's "ground and I 

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. 



Nicholas Johnston 

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 
life. 

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 
for me. 

I'd also like to thank all of the teachers who've made 
such a great impact on my ^^^^^^^^^^ I 

life these last four years. ' 

I'd like to extend special •" - 

thanks to Mr. D'Arcy, i 
you've always pushed me i 

to reach my full potential, -■ 

\ and I'm eternally grateful 
for the privilege of 
learning from you. I'd 
also like to thank Mr. 
Hannaford, Mr. Fitz, and 
Ms. Kaye, your constant 
support and incredible advice was what allowed us to 
have such an amazing year. Also, Mr. Reed, for being 
the nicest teacher I've ever had, you're French/History 
class has been a constant source of enjoyment over this 
past year. 

I'd also like to thank all of the Knights who've made my 
high school experience truly incredible. Although we're 
all moving on to new and different places, I'm sure we'll 
all remain friends for years to come. 

, Finally, I'd like to say Congrats to the whole 07' Class. 
I Few classes can claim to have had such an interesting 
' and eventful four years as we've had. I'm sure we're all 
going to go on to do great things

of my life could fly by so fast; it seems like just yesterday College, but I could not have asked for a better group of 
I started up at RSGC. I've had some fabulous teacher and . people to spend it with. Having such diverse groups of i

Mr. D'Arcy, I wouldn t I 

have made it across that I _ 

tarmac without you, I'm I 

sure, not just me but the 

whole ball hockey league 

couldn't thank you more. 

As for my family, thank [ 

you for putting up with the 

tough limes and guiding 

me threw an unforgettable 

7 years.

Aside from everyone in my grade, I would like to thank 
all the teachers I've had over the years, especially John 
Viljoen for an inspiring art class, which has been a large 
contribution to my post-secondary choice of Architecture. 



In addition, I would also 

like to thank Marc Fowler, j 

Richard Holdsworth, j > 

Alex Shum, Morris Reid,

I'm sure you would all agree, but it's time for the next 
ride of our lives.

It has been a memorable 
6 years at St. Georges. 
Before I part ways with 
this incredible institution 
I'd like to thank those 
that guided me towards 
a brighter future. Mr. 
Darcy, Dr. Newton, Miss 
Somerville, Mr. Farrar, Dr. 
Leatch, Mr. Holdsworth. 
To all those who believed 
and supported me: your 
efforts will not be in vain! 
Thank you to my mother

I hope to see you all in the

Grade 7...<blink>...Grade 12. Where did the time go? 
The past six years at RSGC have been great, the greatest 
being this one. I would like to thank my teachers from this 
year and past years. Mr. Reid, one of the nicest people 
on earth; Mr. Shum, who has always been supportive; 
Mr. Van Herk, for making the transition into university 
so smooth and Mr. Martin, "bebop duang chong" (if 
you were in band, you'll get it) and everyone else who 



was a joy going to class. I 

I would also like to thank I 

my family for giving me ■ f •' 

the opportunity to attend 

such a great school. Some 

of my unforgettable 

memories are Dr. Death, 

Boxing Club, Cooking 

Club, Japan and Russia 

band trips. Of course, how 

could I forget getting so 

much work done in my 

spares (ya right) with Matt Chong (for two years straight). 

Another thing, whenever you are feeling sad, think of 

Russell Peters. Confucius say, "you go to jail, bad boy." I 

now close with a message for all. 

"Don't take life too seriously. You'll never get out of it 
alive."

My 3 years at R.S.G.C have been some of the best years 

of my life. I would like to thank my family for giving me 

the opportunity to come to such an incredible institution 

and their continuing support throughout my years at St. 

George's. My experience has finally come to an end, and 

I couldn't have chosen a better school to attend. Thanks 

to all my friends for making my years at R.S.G.C such 

an incredible experience. Next I would like to thank my 

girlfriend Emily for putting u^irtMneir^n^naWeM. 

You truly made it one 

of the best years of my 

life. Finally, thank you 

to Mr. Rankin, Mr. Reid, 

Dr. Newton, Ms. Miller,

for helping me learn 

so much my final year. jf« 

Furthermore, I would not 

have gotten through my 

time at R.S.G.C without 

the help of Ms. Wagar

done for me.

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.

Six years at RSGC has 

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 

shown me what I'm 

capable of and what I 

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 
Cnmniitprenpineeringl wouldnrobablvnotbe eoinE into 



engineering, also special 
thanks to all my science 

teachers Mrs. Ghoreshy, „ 

Mr. Fowler, and Ms 
Girvan you all really made 
a difference in my high 
school years. 

- keep giving until it hurts, 
then give some more.

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 
their quote in on time, but I assure you if you ask them.

on for a little while with 
some stories now, but 
instead of wasting time 
as space writing it out I 
won't. If you were really 
interested you would come 
ask me. 

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. 

Thanks!

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.

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 
the chocolates. 

. . .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.

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! KNIGHTS! 
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 
round. 



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 |

the days at Pla.xton's. Dominican '07, Squamish, Norval. 
and Tiesto. Finally, the people who supplied me with all 
the education I needed: Thornbury, Evans, Ms.Doerksen, 
Newton, Rankin, Reid (nicest person on the planet), and 
the man who I would take a bullet for. King Leatch (aka 
Caesar). Ms. Wagar, thank you for reminding me about 
my "physio appointments" all the time, giving me black 
shoes and black socks and entertaining me during my 
spares. I don't know what kind of person I would have 
become had if I never went to R.S.G.C. It really has 
become my second home.

When we cross the tarmac

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 
without wax. 

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 

attempt to figure out what a Georgian is. never find a more dedicated. 

Building on the African theme of this past caring group. It cominues to b 

year and drifting back to the origin of the words ^r me to work closely with th(

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 



Hal Hannaford 
Headmaster Address 



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 

weaknesses. 
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.
