Chapel lA^indow 

-In Memory of Douglas l/i^llllams 






On May 9 a large congregation 
of alumni and students attended 
the dedication of the Chapel's 
first stained glass window in 
memory of the late Commander 
Douglas J. Williams, to whom 
tribute was paid by Courtney 
Mitchel in the last Yearbook. 

The window, donated by 
family, friends, and students, was 
designed, made, and installed by 
the Victoria artist Mr. Thomas 

Mercer, of Orillia glass. The vivid colours reflect Dad's 
personality commented Doug's daughter. Verity. 

The glass was made in England, France, and Germany and 
contains a small rosette from the war shattered window of St. 
Martin's Cathedral, Ypres. This fragment is over five hundred 
years old and echoes Douglas's love of the French language 
and the deep, moving memories he retained of World War II. 

The following is from the artist's own comment on the design: 

The window is an abstract representation of the divine 
energies that flow through the universe, the world and 
ourselves. These forces are suggested in the circular forms 
and energetic shapes running through them. How we relate 
to these forces to our lives is an individual matter, but Douglas 
Williams embraced these energies more than most. 

The shape of the Cross creates four windows in one frame. 
The vertical represents the communion between heaven and 
earth, spiritual and intellectual forces, while the rectangular 
shapes speake of our earthly lives. The horizontal speaks of 
Christ reaching out. of rational energies, while the circular 
forms represent eternity. 

The colours and forms are symbolic representations of 
man's aspiration to lead a spiritual life on earth, and stained 
glass is a wonderful medium in which to express such concepts. To those who knew Douglas Williams, the window will be a 
reminder of someone who personified such a life, and who continues to be an inspiration to others. The colours also suggest 
more personal facets of his life; yellow being the colour of daffodils, a reminder of his native Wales; blue recalling his love of 
the sea and his navel service; green refers to his time in France; and red, perhaps, speaks of his passion and religious faith. 
Also found in the window is the symbol of the anchor and his personal 'trademark' signature of a seagull. 

The window is dedicated to the memory of a good man. who in his life acted on the Christian principles of Love, 
Guidance, Loyalty, and Faith. 

-Thomas Mercer. 




Chapel V\/indow 

-Created by 6r. 12 Artists 



Over the past 3 months. 6 grade 12 students: Jenny Reed, 
Lauren Ingle. David Lynch, Chantelle Tearoe, Tara Elson and myself. 
Jean Daniel, have designed and painted a simulated stain glass 
window for the school chapel. This project was a great challenge! In 
coming up with the design, I wanted to focus on the theme of unity. I 
wanted to send a simple yet powerful message across that would be 
accepted by the student body as well as the Christian Church. The 
central idea - the cross and the 
white shroud - represent the 
risen Christ. The bright colours 
which are eminating from the 
central cross, represent power 
and all the elements on earth 
up to the heavens. The circular 
rings of light, water, air, land, 
stars, and sky, represent 
everlasting life. 

Having this window 
completed gives me a sense of 
pride and I hope that people 
will admire it for years to come.

Editors Foreward 




After much hard work, effort, and patience, the crew 
of Yearbook '98 has put together one of the best and 
most creative annuals ever produced. Although the job of 
editor was far more difficult and time-consuming than I had 
anticipated. I must admit that with the help of my friends it has 
turned out to be very rewarding and, to some extent, fun. The 
overall layout of the yearbook has changed, as we have now 
accommodated more colour pages, as well as many design 
changes. Thank you to Vanessa Lee. Liz Aitken. and Dave 
Lynch who have helped me instill these changes. 

Unfortunately, only a couple of months into the first term of school, my assistant 
editor. Vanessa Lee. had to leave the school and head back to her home in Hong Kong 
for medical treatments. Although no longer at the school, she still kept her position in 
the yearbook as the HK correspondent. Grace Fu. a student at that time new to the 
school, filled in her position as assistant editor. 

Throughout the year we have learned much in the way of everything. At the 
beginning knowing only how to cut and paste, the crew has learned everything about 
colour and placement when designing their pages, which often take about 2 to 3 hours 
per page. 

Many thanks to those dedicated few who have spent many hours working over- 
time on the yearbook. Special mentions go to Jen Franklin and Greg Fowler for their 
help throughout the year. Megan Cassidy. for all her work raising advertising funds with 
the help of a little spiel she is well known for in the labs. Evan Crawford, our versatile 
photographer, without whom many of the pictures in the this book would not be possible, 
and to Craig Kirk, for his intense commitment to the yearbook, spending weeks upon 
weeks into the summer helping me with the annual. Thanks also go to my parents, who 
gave me all the support 1 needed and more. 

1 would also like to pass on my gratitude to the staff of the school who were 
instrumental in getting this yearbook off the ground: Mrs. Moore, our wonderful recep- 
tionist, who has helped us with messages, mail, and faxes. Mrs. Card. Mr. Hyde-Lay. 
Mrs.Friesen. Mrs. Balmer. Mrs. Snarr. Mr. Ross. Mr. Przybersky. Mrs. Nason and Mrs. 
Richards, who respectively did the Junior and Middle school sections. 

Good luck to Greg Fowler and Grace Fu. who will be coeditors of next year's 
annual, and thank you to everyone for their efforts in putting out such a great yearbook.

World Events: 1997 - 1998 



August 30, 1997 brought devastating news to the world but especially to the English because the "Queen of People's Heart'." 
Princess Diana passed away when her car crashed while fleeing from the French paparazzi. Their car, which was traveling at 90 mph, 
suddenly veered out of control and collided head-on into a support column and then rolled over and smashed into a wall. 20 doctors and 
nurses struggled to save her but had to pronounce her dead at 3:45am. Her death has brought many funds raised in her honor for the 
disabled, or for the less fortunate. It has also brought the signing of the treaty for the ban of land mines. 

On September 5, 1997. our "Saint on Earth". Mother Teresa, passed away from cardiac arrest in her religious order's head- 
quarters. She spent her life taking care of those she called " the poorest of the poor" because she says she saw the faces of Christ in the 
poor, the outcast, the maimed and the dying. "Do not allow yourselves to be disheartened by any failure as long as you've done your 
best." -Mother Teresa- 

On November 19, 1997. Bobbi McCaughey, assisted by a 40 member medical team, delivered septuplets by Caesarian section. 
There are 4 boys and 3 girls, each ranging in weight between 21bs 5oz to 31bs 4oz. Doctors were amazed by the weight of the babies 
because they were as large as quadmplets. The babies are healthy and well. They went home as soon as they were in stable condition 
and could breathe on their own. This "miracle" produced gifts such as a life-time supply of diapers, a new house and free college educa- 
tions. 

On December 30, 1997. being threatened by more deaths from the mysterious avian, or bird flu. Hong Kong decided to 
slaughter all of its one million live chicken. The chickens were herded into large garbage bags and suffocated with C02. Towards the end 
of this demolition, the C02 became scarce and slaughterers had to slit the throats of the remaining poultry. The total number of people 
who were verified with the H5N1 vims was 13, 4 of which died. 

February 7, 1998 featured the opening ceremonies to the Winter Olympics which were held at Nagano. Japan. This 2 week 
sporting competition in an icy cold climate featured alpine, cross-country and freestyle skiing, figure, speed and short track speed skating, 
the biathlon, bobsleighing, curling, ice hockey, luge. Nordic combined, ski jumping and snow boarding. The results were Germany for 
first (29), Norway for second (25) and Russia for third (18). But, Canada wasn't far behind with fifth place and 15 medals! 

February 16, 1998 marked one of the world's worst-seen airplane crashes. This mis-fortune happened in Taipei. Taiwan with a 
flight coming in from Bali. Indonesia. The aircraft crashed into a residential area, hitting, first, a civilian building and then destroying at 
least three other residential buildings near the airport. It fell short of the mnway when it was making it's second landing attempt. The 
crash occurred under conditions of darkness and rain and reduced visibility due to fog. All 182 passengers were killed along with the 15 
crew members, also killing at least 7 on the ground. 

April 9, 1998 marked one in a series of tornadoes bound to hit Alabama. The 1998 tornado death-rate now measures 112. 
these tornadoes being rated F5 with winds in excess of 260 mph. The track measured 20 miles in length and the widest point being half 
a mile wide. If the tornado stayed on the ground for 2 more miles, it would've hit downtown Birmington, causing the end to more lives. 
Another 4 miles and the Birmingham airport would've seen it's last. This has been one of the worst years for tornadoes in the United 
States, lots of lives have been taken and many homes have been destroyed. 

May 6, 1998 was the start to many riots in Jakarta. Indonesia has been plagued by social and economic problems, leading to 
these student-led protests, which have destroyed cities and lives. Mobs roam the streets looking for Chinese-owned stores, attacking 
police and torching cars. Many people have died from being shot by police and the cities where riots have taken place are thoroughly 
overturned. Suharto, 76 years of age, and in rule for 32 years, has been held accountable for the soaring prices 
and joblessness in Indonesia. Protesters made him give up his position and Suharto stepped down as leader, but 
gave the position to vice-president, Habibie. It has been said, though, that because Habibie has been groomed by 
Suharto for decades, he is too corrupt to give Indonesians the type of government they want. 

On June 20, 1998. 139 members of the grade 12 class of St. Michaels University School were presented 
their graduation certificates at an extravagant ceremony at the UVIC auditorium. This class of graduates was the 
largest group to have ever graduated from SMU. and represented a wide diversity of people from throughout the 
world. They now join the proud ranks of hundreds of St. Mike's alumni, and will take on the world with great 
enthusiasm. Good luck to all!

Headmasters Message 




Although every year resembles the previous one to a great extent, every year also has its particular 
character, shaped by the students who lead it. who make up the teams, who act in the plays, and who fill 
all the daily details the make our school a rich place. Faculty also serve their role in creating the personal- 
ity of a year, with some additions and departures every year that alter the flavour slightly and make the 
school a living place. 

This year, some important work was done on the subject of student leadership, work that to many will 
have been difficult to discem. since it took place in discussion or was implemented in such a way that 
change was begun but not completed. In fact, the change will likely never be completed, since an issue as 
important as student leadership has to evolve with the evolving nature of the school. Next year, however, 
students in the Senior School in particular will begin to see greater changes in the leadership roles students 
play, and the means by which these students are both elected and selected. 

In the Junior School, the students continued to produce work and play of high quality, as evinced in 
sports, the arts and. most importantly, in academics. Many parents got a closer insight into the activities of their children in the student- 
led conferences, an experience which allows the student to develop a sense of his or her own growth and to share it with parents. 

The Middle School had a full and busy year, highlighted as always by a few notable academic achievements, notably on the Math- 
ematics front, but also with the Girls' Under 15 Soccer team, and the mounting of Willpower under the direction of Mr. Manson-Blair. 
Orchestra and choir performances at Christmas and in May are a serious indication of the quality and effort of both students and teachers. 

Progress continued on the Richmond Road Facilities Plan, a project that will be finalised in the autumn of 1998, and on the 
school's Mission, an undertaking that is the culmination of several years of work, and which will result in a clear and focused sense of who 
and what we are - again, a consistent evolution from where the school has come from, with an eye to where it will go in the future. 

This book is the best testament in print to the life of the school. Read its pages; look at its pictures. It tells more stories than I 
could possibly touch on here, and with a vividness that will give a reader a sense of richness that defies words. Vivat! 

Board of Governors 

This year marks a special graduation time for me; it is the year my third and last child will graduat- 
ing from this great school, and it is the end of my final - and 15"' year - as a parent of a child at SMUS! I 
remember well the thoroughness with which my wife Gillian and I examined the school, and checked out 
its credentials. The most important factor for us in feeling SMUS was the right school for our children was 
the assessment by current (then) and recently graduated students - they loved the school, and raved about 
it to us without any prompting by anyone, I trust that each of you in the class of 1998 will be taking with 
you many fond memories of your time at the school, and that when others ask you about SMUS, that you 
will feel moved to sing its praises. 

Most of all, I hope that you will experience your learning here as a very solid and helpful founda- 
tion for whatever further studies and work you choose to pursue. It is almost impossible for schools to 
prepare students for particular jobs, as the nature of most jobs is changing on an ongoing basis and many 
jobs that will interest you do not yet exist! As some writers put it, even the nature of change is changing. 
Therefore, what is important about education today is not the specific knowledge and skills you have 

acquired, but what visions you are carrying, and the potentials you have discovered within yourself that will allow you to grow, change and 

develop over the years to come. 

On behalf of the Board of Govemors. 1 want to express to each member of the graduating class our sincere good wishes for the 
years ahead, and our belief that as a graduate of SMUS. you can be confident that you can achieve your dreams and truly make a differ- 
ence in whatever field beckons you. 

We hope that you will stay in touch with many of your classmates, and that you will return to the school from time to time as your 
travels allow. Godspeed, and much happiness and success to each of you. .. . ,.

Junior School Director's Foreword 



Celebrations abounded this year in the Junior School. Our building echoed to the strains of 
the school hymn during a wonderful rededication in October when we formally recognized 
our beautiful, renovated facilities. Most moving was the presence of several St. Michael's 
School Alumni who entered into our festivities with shared memories and joyfulness. Events 
such as this make important connections for us to our history and give all students, parents 
and faculty a sense of continuity within a shared community. 

We were overwhelmed at Christmas by the enormous generosity of our school families when 
everyone met to create Christmas baskets for charity. It was a wonderful event with school 
and Christmas spirit fully evident! 

Again in May we gathered as a school to watch the Grade Five class excel in their perfor- 
mance of "Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat". The extreme precision of the dance 
and the difficulty of some of the singing provided quite a challenge for our students but they 
rose, as always, to do their best. We were treated to an extraordinarily good production 
which left both students and faculty full of the pride of accomplishment . 

These are but three events in a school year full of many wonderful achievements. They indicate for me three areas where I 
believe our school's commitment is strong: our traditions and history, our work within the community, and our commitment 
to doing our personal best. There are many other values modelled in our school; respect, responsibility, honesty and 
compassion are some: however, for me the frame of this year will always include the pictures from these events. 

It has been a good year! Farewell Grade 5's and may your dreams be of fat cows and full sheaves of corn! You are a 
fabulous class and. like Joseph, you'll be a wise and compassionate group as you pass through the halls of the Middle 
School. Good Luck!

Cheetah 




The cheetah is a predator, 

He spots his prey and stalks it. 

Then when he's got as close as he can he 

crouches. 

His camouflage blends him into the tall grass. 

Suddenly he starts to run. 

All his legs seem to spring and become flexible. 

He is swift and he pulls his prey down. 

This loner drags his prey up a tree for safety. 

He seems to know he is the fastest land animal. 

He is the cheetah.

Polar Bears 

Places to themselves 

Odd bears 

Love the water 

Although threatened, still lots left 

Roar loudly 

Biggest bear of all

Adopting others 
Rodents beware! 
Swimming all the time. 

Scott Stone 



Diving Dolphins 

Diving dolphins 

In the blue sea. 

Various different kinds 

In captivity they're friends of you and me. 

Never in a lake 

Gliding in the water. 

Diving in the sea 

Or out in the kelp beds with an otter. 

Leaping in the air 

Playing hide and seek. 

Holding on to... 

Its very big beak. 

Never judge a dolphin. 

So if you are in the neighbourhood, 

just drop in. 

Stephanie Klak 





Wild Horses 

With flowing tails and flying manes. 
Wide nostrils never stretched by pain. 
Mouth bloodless to the the bit or rein. 
And feet that iron never shod. 
And flanks unseated by spur or rod, 

A thousand horses-the-wild-the free. 
Like waves that follow over the sea. 

Came quickly, thickly thundering on.

Snow 

Snow is light and fluffy.

Falling from the sky.

The snow turns to slush 
Then nobody can play in it.

Midnight in the City 

It's midnight in the city. 

Somewhere, a housecat lies down on the couch purring softly. 

Its fur shimmers in the moonlight. 

He closes his eyes and rests, for he is almost asleep. 

All around, the tired world of living things is almost asleep. 

It is midnight in the city. 

Somewhere, two wild rabbits dream of tomorrow, a day of 

green meadows 

and crunchy carrots in their soft burrow down underneath. 

In my house, my mom and dad turn off the lights. 

In the streets below, they can hear cars rushing through the 

streets 

below. 

Outside, there is someone still dancing. 

It is midnight in the city 

and the gray world is almost asleep. 

It is midnight in the city. 

Somewhere in the distance, a truck drives down a highway 

To pick up a parcel. 

It is midnight in the city. 

The clock strikes twelve. 

1 get out of bed and look out the window. 

Only the nocturnal creatures are awake. 

"Goodnight" I say to the midnight. 

Somewhere in the city. 
Worms are squirming around. 
And the world is almost asleep.

The First Gift of Christmas 

If 1 was chosen to have the first gift of Christmas by Santa Claus, I 
would choose a magic toy bag like Santa's magic toy bag because then 
I could send toys to children in Korea and Bosnia. I could give toys 
to charities like The Salvation Army and I wouldn't have to buy toys 
that were costing $40 and up. 

If I couldn't get a magic toy bag 1 would want a baby reindeer with 
horns as white as snow and fur soft as silk because all my other 
pets have died and it gets boring after you play on the computer for 
a long time.

The Spider 

Hop, skip, jump does the spider on the wall. 
Hop, skip, jump he's sure not to fall! 
Hop, skip, jump does the bird just the same. 
Hop, skip, jump they think it's just a game. 
The spider fell, the bird tripped, 
Oh what a shame!

The Fern

Fire 

Cackling, hissing. 
Growing larger. 
Engulfing anything 
and everything 
that lies in its path, 

Dwindling, dying, 

Now nothing but a 

spark. 

Slowly going out. 

With one last sigh 

as it dies.

The Storm 

Splish, swish, splash 

Great waves thunder 

Roar, roar, roar 

Lightning flashes, thunder roars 

Animals run 

Humans hide 

The storm goes on 

Splish, swish, splash 

Roar, roar, roar 

The storm goes on ! !

The Perfect Soup 

The soup was a thick broth, 

made with only beef and 

barley. 

The girl's mouth was a flood, 

watering like a rainstorm. 

She picked up a shiny, silver 

spoon, 

scooped up the delicious 

mixture, 

and sighed with pleasure as 

the broth made its way to 

her stomach.

The Months 

January makes the snow, 
February makes wind blow, 
March is boring, long and slow, 

April is in charge of all the showers, 
May goes out and plants the flowers, 
June just ticks away the hours, 

July is nice, sunny and bright, 
August is when I fix the light, 
September's when the planes are in full flight, 

October is scary Hallowe'en. 
November is very cold and lean, 
December with snow cannot be seen. 

And that's the end of this poem, I mean. 

Marisa Brook 



Their Own World 

I am quite sure 

That all those little animals 

Have their very own world 

In the woods and underground 

That's where their world unfurled 

They have a little town 

They call "Chimchimcheri" 

And they really do love it as you can see 

The sparrows are the gossips 

The chipmunks are the funny ones 

And the bunnies bake hot-crossed buns 

The turtle is their preacher 

For their church is their main feature 

All in the small town of "Chimchimcheri"

Winter Wonder-Land 




The winter painted the glass with its frost. 

The snowflakes looked as though they were lost. 

Everything was still, nothing in sight. 

The starts twinkled in the clear night, 

1 look around, all 1 do is just stand. 

It's just like a dream, this winter wonder-land. 

Ellie Shortt 



Battery Magic 

This is a poem of magical batteries. 

They grow arms and legs and even arteries. 

They come alive from their eternal slumber. 

There's one named Little John, he's quite a hummer. 

They take over the house they all want to stay. 

All they do is play, play, play! 

They swing from the lampshades but soon they must go. 

And that's all I know about Battery Magic.

Strings 



Ensembles in the string programme have had an active year of study 
and performance. The grade 4 class worked to prepare a debut concert 
in the fall and a Music Festival performance in April. As in the 
past, grade 5 string ensembles took part in seasonal celebrations and 
special occasions, on campus and in the community. String groups 
from Middle School and the full orchestra from the Senior School 
played at 2 morning assemblies in the second and third terms. These 
visits provided a chance for older students to show the younger 
musicians an example of what is possible to achieve, through 
perseverance and practice. In June, the Lafayette String Quartet 
performed for all the string students (grade 4-8) in a 
concert/workshop format. The progress made by the young string 
students at SMUS, through the course of the year, was outstanding!

The Crow, The Eagle and The Nest 

A crow hops along the forest floor, 

wondering about the commotion. 

in a tree, an eagle attacks the nest of a 

robin. 

The babies whine in pain. 

The mother does not respond, 

Instead she lies on the forest floor. 

Motionless.

Poppies 

I am a poppy, 

that grows in Flanders Field, 

with many other poppies, 

around the graves of soldiers who died, 

I see the families, 
who come to the graves, 
and put flowers on them, 

or whisper a prayer, 

they honour the people, 

who risked their lives and died for us, 

I am glad to be a poppy, 

so that I too can honour them.

My Queendom 

My name is Queen of the Willows. I have no whipping boys. My motto 
would be "Sweeter after Difficulties". 1 chose that motto because 
whenever I do something difficult, after 1 do it once, it seems easy. 
My flag would have a white background and a red rose. The other 
side of the flag would have a red background and a gold lion holding 
a flaming torch. My rules would be no stealing, no killing and no 
whipping. My country is a small island with a high wall around the 
outside. My island is called Morgan Swamp. I have a lot of weeping 
willows and haunted gardens. I have a fountain in the middle of the 
garden that makes jewels that you can't see in the water and there is 
an endless supply of these jewels in the fountain. 1 go there every 
day to collect jewels and I sell them in the market. Then 1 have 
money to buy things. That's how I get money. My main food is steak 
with vegetables on the side, and my main drink is lemonade with lots 
of sugar from the sugar plant that grows in the centre of Morgan 
Swamp. I have a stream that is made of lemon juice and the rocks 
around the stream are mother of pearl rocks. In my country, girls 
are allowed to do anything boys can do. Girls can do more things 
than boys too. The island on the left of Morgan Swamp is named 
Stream Island. It is called that because there arc so many streams 
on Stream Island. I will live on Morgan Swamp forever.

Flowers 



Sailing In The Wind 



From a far distance I can see. 

Some flowers, spraying bright colours at me. 

The flowers are from a far away place, 

And they twinkle in the bright sun. 

In a wide open space. 

The grass that the flowers are on. is a shining carpet of 

light. 

And the creatures on land never think of fight. 
A flower to me is a bright colour of life.

Smooth rides on the water 

Any boat is good 

In other colours 

Lazers are the nicest 

International races all over the world 

No boat the same 

Going with the tide 

Individual sailors 
No days alike 

Tacking back on course 
Hiking out over the water 
Every day is fun 

Waves lap up on rocks 

In a storm sailing is bad 

Nagging your coach 

Down wind across the finish line.

Jamie The Vet 

(to the tune of Joseph's Coat) 

Jamie, he was England's favourite vet. 

Of all of England. Jamie was the teacher's pet. 

He helped some sheep and earned a keep, and fell in love 
Helen. 

Jaimie's buds would hang around the Fox and Hounds. 

i Where they would 

Eat by Gallons, drink by pounds. 

He got woke up. to find a pup. 
Her owner thinks she's dying. 

But it was a false alarm and in the end there was no harm. 
Just a mother trying to have some litters. 
Soon to be a lovely bunch of critters. 

Then, he married Helen and had a son named Jim!!!

Qristina Bachand. Grade 2 



The Alien Travis Denley, Kindergarten 

One day on Halloween my mom and dad left me alone. I was in 

charge of the candy. Several kids arrived at our house for some 

candy. After 100 kids came, I went inside. I made myself a hot 

cocoa . I sat down thinking about things while sipping my cocoa. 

When I finished my hot cocoa. I heard a knock at the door. I 

quietly opened the door. It was someone in an alien costume. 

This alien was a friend of mine. I told him to take off his alien 

mask. He didn't even move. I was shocked. My friend always 

listened to me. 1 tried to take off his mask. I thought it was 

rather interesting. It was slimy and gooey and it seemed real. So 

that night when I went to bed I said good-bye to my rather 

unusual alien friend. So I went to bed but I didn't realize that my 

alien didn't leave. Then I woke up. 1 went down stairs and 

caught the alien. I was full of happiness. That night I had a good 

sleep.

I simply can't stop growing. 

I do it all day long. 

If this goes on much longer,

'Cause I am going bonkers 
And everything is going wrong.

Circle Story 

One hot day, (very early in fact), there was a grave- 
yard, and in that graveyard there was a skeleton that 
came alive. Next to the graveyard was a farm, and in 
that farm there were some pigs. And the pigs, when 
they saw that skeleton rising in the graveyard, they 
ran to the manure before you could say have a nice 
day. And when those pigs hit that manure, most of it 
went flying over to the barn, those pigs were in such 
a hurry. Some of it also hit the horse and the horse 
went flying into town as fast as a humming bird. The 
horse was going so fast he ran straight into the 
policeman. The policeman fell into his car and drove 
to the graveyard. The policeman was driving slowly 
when he hit a tombstone. Which is why...

Middle School Director's Foreword 

(from the speech delivered at Prize Night. 19th June. 1998) 



Another high energy year has passed - the eleventh in the history of the Middle School. 
The true measure of a school is the quality of the people it produces and I am confident that we 
have a student body which will live up to our expectations and one of which everyone can be 
proud. There is a strong academic focus in the school, but it is all of the other activities which 

F^^tt^ul^ '^^HH go on here that help students acquire the skills and build the character which mold the well 
^^t ^^ rounded person as emphasised in the school philosophy. 

There is immense talent within the student body and I would like to share with you some 
of the exceptional events which have been part of this school year. The amazing show 
"Willpower" involved over half ot the students and faculty, as well as some wonderful parent help. 
It was a production of brilliance. All aspects of theatre were incredibly well organised and as a 
spectacle and learning experience it was second to none. Throughout the year the musicians have performed superbly, in mini- 
concerts as well as excelling in the Greater Victoria Music Festival. The culmination of the musical year was a concert of amazing 
calibre in this very auditorium. 

Works of great artistic merit have flowed out of the art room and several exhibitions attest to the brilliance of this 
programme. Our technology is excellent and the computer room remains one of the most popular venues in the school. Public 
speaking and debating were introduced, and besides our internal competitions a few of our students competed successfully in 
external competition. A grade 8 student won the provincial National Geographic competition against thousands of entrants from 
over 200 schools. A grade 7 student won a Vancouver Island regional public speaking competition. 

Our mathematicians experienced great success in national competitions in all three grade levels. The school finished in 
the provincial top three in two contests and teamed with the grade 9 students, placing 3rd in two Canadian competitions. The 
grade 8 team won the Gauss competition against 30 local schools. Mr. Jeremy Goodwin has experienced an enormous amount 
of competitive success over his career at the Middle School and it is with great sadness that we say farewell to him after a 23 
years at St. Michaels University School . He has been a dedicated and loyal member of the faculty and his contribution to boarding, 
athletics and in particular to mathematics, has been greatly appreciated. 

In the athletics arena our girls' under 15 soccer team went to Montreal with the daunting task of defending a national 
championship for the second consecutive year. In the highly competitive tournament, they came away with a third title in as 
many years. Already the new team is preparing for the next year's championship in Toronto. Is a fourth straight championship 
possible? Staytuned! The boys' under 13 team had a building year in 1997. but this coming year they will be returning to Ontario 
with a veteran squad. And just like the girls' team, the boys will be preparing throughout the summer. 

There was an unprecedented turn out for basketball this year with enough interested players to put at least ten teams on 
the court. The grade 8 boys' team had great success in league play, but made an early exit from the play-offs. The grade 6 boys 
had two teams of equal strength and both acquitted themselves well. The future of school basketball in in good hands. Both 
the swimming and badminton teams performed admirably and achieved some success. The track and field teams showed signs 
of improvement and an earlier practice start next year will produce even better results. 

Much work has been done to improve our community awareness and funds were raised for many worthy causes. There 
is, of course, so much to do and so little time in which to do it, but we will continue to throw strong support behind the many 
worthwhile suggestions from our entire SMUS family. 

The students, parents and faculty share a great sense of pride in the school's achievements this past year. All of these 
experiences at the Middle School will be with the students for a lifetime. 

Apart from Jeremy Goodwin's retirement, we have two leaves of absence in the next school year. Mrs. Penny Richards 
and her husband Bob are going to be globetrotting, and Ms. Jennifer Walinga will be spending a pre-kindergarten year at home 
with her daughter, Allie. We have two experienced replacements to guide and nurture their students. A special thanks is due 
to Mr. Jim Williams who has been the Assistant Director of the Middle School for the past four years. His major subject of study 
was mathematics and on the announced retirement of Jeremy Goodwin, he decided to move back into a full time teaching role 
in September. His commitment to the school has been quite extraordinary and 1 am sure that he will face his new role with the 
same vigour and humour he has shown in administration. His replacement in the Assistant's office will be Mr. Jim de Goede, 
a popular choice for all, and I look forward very much to working with him. 

Thank you to all members of the SMUS community for your excellent support this year. Good luck to everyone in our 
grade eight class in the next stage of your careers and be assured that we will be watching your progress with great interest.

Wednesday. September 28th found the Girls' Under- 15 Soccer tean 
in Halifax, Nova Scotia for a day of acclimatizing, touring, shoppini 
and relaxation prior to the big tournament. Thursday saw them arrive 
at Dalhousie University playing fields to test their skills on artificial tur 
for the first time. Playing only fairly, the girls defeated Pickerin; 
College and Miss Edgar & Miss Cramp's School by identical 2 - ( 
scores and move into the championship round the next day. 
On Thursday, two tie games meant the girls were in danger of beinc 
eliminated from the championship final. They still had to play St 
Mildred's Lightbourn School who were, as yet, undefeated. Only i 
win in this game would allow the SMUS girls to qualify for th( 
championship semi-final the next day. This game was played at i 
very high calibre and was decided by a long range clearance. Mearc 
Crawford was forced to play a ball under pressure and struck it firmly 
From center field the ball rose in the air and struck the ground agair 
about the St. Mildred's penalty spot but bounced so high that ii 
cleared the keeper's reach, and the girls were absolutely elated to fine 
themselves through into the next round with a 1 - win. 
The confidence that win gave them allowed them to handle Country 
Day School with ease in a 3 - win, thereby giving them a chance 
to repeat as three-time national champions. Their opponent woulc 
be St. Mildred's Lightbourn, a scenario almost identical to the yeai 
before. Luck and tenacity favoured the team and by the half the score 
was 3-0. Two more goals in the second half completed an exciting 
and well deserved victory. Congratulations to the SMUS Girls' 
Under-15 Soccer Team: 3-time National Champions!

In October 1997. Mr. Yorath and Mr. Pollock along with fifteen eager Under 13 soccer players, 
travelled to Royal St. George's College in Toronto for the CIS Boys U-13 Championship. Before the 
tournament began, there were many adventures to the CN Tower, Ontario Science Center, McMichael 
Art Gallery, Niagara Falls, and the Hockey Hall of Fame (to name a few). 

As the youngest squad in the tournament, the St. Michaels boys, led by three-time veteran Chris 
Chapheau and returnees Mark Quinlan and Fraser Lee, played admirably in somewhat adverse 
conditions and, with so many young players, turned many heads with their determined play and 
outstanding skills. This was a delightful end to a most successful season that, once again, saw the St. 
Michaels team capture the VISAA Championship. Many thanks go to all our parents and supporters. 

D. Pollock.

This was a very enthusiastic group that showed great potential for the future. We practised every 
Wednesday and played in the league with some success. The team drew against P.C.S. and G.N.S. 
but lost to a very good St. Patrick's team. In the tournament at Windsor Park we won our first game, 
drew the second and lost in the final. Mark Zakus and Brett Cooper scored the goals. The team 
should do very well next season.

The boys were so keen to play basketball that out of necessity we decided to create two teams instead of one so that everyone could play. The boys played in mam 
exciting games but perhaps the highlight of the year was hosting and winning the Independent Schools Basketball Tournament by hanging on to a narrow lead to ous 
St. George's of Vanouver. This was a fun season with an emphasis on participation and team work that we hope will pay off in the years to come. J. de Goede

The girls played an exciting season and showed excellent improvement in all areas of play. We began the season with a bang, defeating St. Margarets 
soundly on home court. We were then brought back to reality by the speed and confidence of St. Patrick's and P.C.S. The S.M.U.S. girls were not 
easily daunted, however. They focused upon developing aggression and shooting. Our second meeting with St. Patrick's resulted in a closer margin 
though we again had to settle for a loss. By the final tournament at P.C.S. we were a force to be reckoned with. Though the girls fought hard, we had 
to settle for a loss 12-10 and third place overall. The team voted their most valuable players as: Bria Wilson. Brittany Crow. Jenny Couvelier, Brianne 
Bentzon and Farrah Merali. 1 would like to thank the whole team for their commitment.

Our swim team enjoyed yet another successful season in the pool. We had a large contingent of swimmers out from all grades 
and they performed very well at both the VISAA and ISA meets. The highlight of the season would have to be our tremendous 
showing at the 71st annual Victoria elementary schools meet which is run over two nights with finalists qualifying for the 
Championship meet in February. Once again our swimmers produced some excellent results enabling us to win the novice section 
and place 2nd in the Championship meet out of 30 local schools. Our Grade 6 4 x 100 free relay team claimed top prize in 
that event with their next closest competitor a full 9.5 seconds behind! Congratulations on a fine season to all those swimmers 
who participated this season.

The mini-rugby season was a very brief one. designed to give the boys an introduction to the game. After a few practices 
we began to play "friendly" games with our local opposition. GNS. Although the games were close we lost more than 
we won. What we did get was a great deal of invaluable experience that we took with us to St. George's for their big 
annual tournament. Despite the heat, allergies and being rather novices to the game, the boys played very well. There 
will be lots of talented grade sevens to choose from next year and some good eights to begin their first year of fifteen- 
aside rugby. Many thanks to Mr. Rees for returning to SMUS to show us the finer points of the game.

Many students without prior experience learned the game and it became a passion with them. Once again the team representing 
S.M,U,S, captured the City Grade Vlll Badminton Championship and finished second overall in the Junior High School division. 
Individual champions were: Kristie Tyrrell in the Girls' Singles and the Florencia Bonet/Brad Jawl combination in the Mixed Doubles. 
Mr, Gardiner, coach of the Senior School team, can look forward to some enthusiastic players trying to 'crack his squad' next year, Chris 
Couvelier. David Burnett. Stuart Jones. Elliot Holtham and Rob Stevulak all have great potential should they desire to stay with this

started off a bit slowly but gradually gained

James Bond 

He is the greatest master spy, 

He's known as double O-seven. 

He wears his Bentley next his chest 

To finish off his mission. 

He drives an Aston Martin car, 

He's suave and a sexy guy. 

He's got a chick in every land 

For tomorrow never dies. 

The Russians try to get him killed 

But he will always live on. 

He is the perfect Englishman 

The name is Bond, James Bond.

What is Blue? 
Blue is water 
and all its depths 
the sky 

on the nicest day 
Blue is the ink 
that flows from the pen 
Blue is a feeling 
you get when you are low 
Blue is the rain before the snow 
Some boxes are blue 
And some things that are new 
Blue is the bluebird 
singing on high 
Blue is the feeling 
when you say bye.

The River of Life 



Life is flowing, like a river 

we have no control of its flow 

we must keep moving down stream 

there are times in the river of life 

that are difficult 

these are the rapids 

there are times you feel life has stopped 

these are the times when something blocks 

the river 

the river grows with us, 

flows with us 

at the end you reach the ocean 

and after all the years you are free.

The Sea 



The sea is an army waiting to strike, 
Always trying to claw its way onto the land. 
But always falling back in defeat. 
And a patch of wet sand is all that will show, 
Of the sea army's toils and troubles. 

But beware for the sea can be easily enraged, 

A bout with the wind can cause a big fight. 

When neither side ever wins. 

The sea starts to froth and wind starts to wfiine and shout. 

Over the breaking waves. 

But when they are friends the sea falls asleep, 
by the wind's gentle lullaby over the sea, 
making a stiD glass sheen. 
Only broken by the razor of a boat, 
cutting and slashing that old sea. 

Eliot HolLham. 




Little 

My big brother taught me lots of school 

stuff, 

Like that words that sound the same but are 

different are cinnamons. 

And when you're on a mat of pizza the word 

sounds like the sound it makes, 

And an ox or moron doesn't make cents. 

But a pair of docks is an ox or moron that 

does make cents, 

And if you've ever met a 4 you've compared 

something to something else. 

Only you didn't use like or as because that's 

Simon Lee. 

See, Aren't 1 smart?

The Tornado 

The tornado spins round and round, sucking 

like a vacuum. Cows and small animals 

fly by heading for their death. A path 

of destruction is left behind like a 

warning to be more careful. Cries 

from families rise up as they 

watch their houses being 

torn apart. There is only 

one name for a 

huge tornado. 

Killer!

The River of Life 

My life is a river, 

Vigorous and strong. 

Fast currents rushing headlong downstream 

But sometimes resting, forming eddies behind a rock, 

Before joining the rush. 

Suddenly the river changes its course 

And takes a different turn. 

A fallen tree obstructs its 'vay - 

But the river gathers up its energy 

And forges ahead 

As strong as before. 

Beyond the tree is a pool. 

Still and silent 

And in the depths 

Is hidden life, 

Slowly swaying plants 

And darting fish in comers. 

Finally, the river murmurs and sparkles. 

As it reaches out to the endless ocean.

East Sooke Park 



East Sooke Park is a rainforest 
Lush with green and life 
But tiny, icky, licorice slugs 
Were sure to cause some strife. 

Eeek! Cries Brooke, a cheery girl 
An ugly, slimy slug - 
He's slimy and black plus super cool; 
Let's plop him in a jug! 

Of course not. beastly child! 
Boomed the guide, quite mad 
Put it down and leave it alone 
If you take it home that's bad. 

Then Reay. hardly listening 
Suddenly shot ahead 
But accidentally was pushed aside 
And she landed on her head. 

Camouflage was well enjoyed 

A hiding place was often sought 

You squat in the bushes and try to be small 

And hope you don't get caught. 

East Sooke Park was tons of fun 
But 1 was quite happy to be back in town 
For perhaps, the best part of having a trip 
Is sharing the story, by writing it down.

Wild almost free 

One day people will see 

What a wonderful place a forest can be 

When people clear-cut 

That's when we notice where humanity 

messed up 

When you visit Merv 

You'll see why he preserves 

His land for the living things it deserves 

Here slowly the trees grow 

And the grass that you don't have to mow 

Oh when will we know 

That trees are friends and not foe 

Wild almost free 

Even you will see

The Horse 

What a beautiful creature 
A galloping horse is! 
With the wind in its mane 
And the tail 
Like a flag behind. 

The graceful, arched neck 
When its body is still 
Is as handsome as the night 
With a full moon 
Shining, a golden disk. 

When you're riding a horse, 

At a trot, 

At a canter. 

You're drifting on a cloud, 

Racing across the sky.

Honour Band Students 





String Ensembles at Middle School 

The string ensemble students had an active year of study in music making. The grade 7s launched the performing season in the first 
term by playing at a Junior School assembly. The grade 6 ensemble played at the Parents' Auxiliary Bazaar. The grade 8 class divided 
forces in order to accommodate requests for music at the Chateau Victoria Hotel and Ocean Pointe Resort. A cross-grade chamber 
group accompanied the choir at the Carol Service. In the new year, students in grade 6 and 7 presented serenades to accompany the 
chapel services. In term 2, a string quartet played an accompaniment to "Green Sleeves" in the Middle Schools production of Wiilpower. 
In February, the grade 8 string class had two working sessions on current repertoire with Ms. Donna Williams, string orchestra teacher 
in the Senior School. During third term, the cross-grade string orchestra is involved in preparation for the end of year ceremonies. In 
addition, it participated in the Performing Arts Festival. The annual concert was held in May at the University of Victoria Auditorium, 
and in the same week, a group of string players assisted in the opening festivities of the Art Show. On yet another evening, they provided 
an encapsulated look at Middle School music opportunities for the grade 5 students and their parents. In early June, the Lafayette String 
Quartet performed for string players at SMUS, in an animated presentation, at the Junior School. There are many happy memories 
of 1997/8 to recall in the growth of the string orchestra programme at Middle School.

^ Community Service 



A priority at St. Michaels University Middle School is encouraging 
our students to become more aware of the "sense of community' 
within our school and on a broader scale, the needs of the 
"Victoria Community". 

In September, we supported the "Cops for Cancer" event and 
raised $638.99. Police officers explained the purpose for their 
involvement and a few students participated in the "head shaving" 
of Constable Mike Lawless at the Eaton's Centre. 
The Christmas Season raises awareness of less fortunate families 
in our community. Each of the 15 Home Forms organized a 
"Hamper ' that was delivered to families through the Santas 
Anonymous Society. 

In January, we supported the Mustard Seed Food Bank by 
providing a food item appreciated by children in their lunches - 
"The Peanut Butter Blitz" . Each student and staff brought one jar 
of peanut butter to contribute to this organisation. 
Our fourth project will involve the "Big Brothers and Big Sisters" 
of Victoria. This organization provides a wonderful service to 
children and teenagers who live primarily in a "one-parent ' home 
and where they desperately need a 'role model". They match a 
child with an adult who becomes involved as a friend and support 
person to help them experience a more positive side of life. 
On March 17, the Ocean Pointe Resort hosts the "St. Patrick's 
Day Fun Run" to support the "Big Brothers and Big Sisters" 
organization. Some of our students will be participating by 
walking, jogging or running along the scenic waterfront. 
Many thanks to students and parents for their enthusiasm, 
commitment and charitable spirit given to our "Community 
Service" .

PERFORMANCE 



It's finally my turn, 

I have to go, 

1 have no choice. 

I've done this a million times before, 

But this time, 

This time I know I'll screw up. 

My cue is coming. 

And then its there, 

I take a quick moment, 

Breathless in the wings, 

And then I walk on. 

The lights come up. 

I am vulnerable, 

Yet the whole moment is in my power. 

All eyes are on me. 

The audience seems vast, 

A sea of expectations. 

Waiting for me. 

This character I play. 

It is now me. 

In their awaiting eyes, 

I am the only thing that matters right now, 

And I feel it. 

So I must perform. 

The audience fuels me, 

1 go through my lines almost in a daze, 

The spotlight glares, 

I do not notice. 

The costume is itchy, 

I do not flinch. 

And then. 

Before I realize it, 

I am once more in the dark. 

And the applause releasesmy breath, 

That was held in suspense. 

I have done it, 

Just like the night before, 

I will do it again, 

Just like tonight. 

So once again. 

My senses return, 

And I am filled with satisfaction.

Director's Comment 

-n 



|« , The year really began in early August at the planning retreat where the main topic 

^^^IHl^' discussed was student leadership and how the school could provide more opportuni- 

^^^^^»^^ ties for the students to demonstrate leadership and be fully involved in the decisions 
^^^^ (i^^., impacting them at the school. We were fortunate to have an exceptional group of 

leaders in this year's prefect group and as a result much headway was made in setting I 
up a new structure for the future. Jenny Reed, winner of the Ker Cup, led the way with great insight and { 

common sense and she was strongly supported by the multi-talented Chris Stolarski, whose performance along 
with Rachel Magnusson's in The Lovers' was exceptional. 

Megan Volk and Brian Dyer Award winner Kim Emsley-Leik worked tirelessly in the boarding community 
and on the different Grad committees to ensure that the year was successful and Robert Sin thoroughly de- 
served his Darlene McCue award for bringing together diverse groups of students from different cultural back- 
grounds. An outstanding representative of the Fine Arts in the prefect body, Cara Yeates. was a worthy 
recipient of the John Nation Bowl for Citizenship. Great work was also done in the academic area by 
Rebecca Anglin who worked hard to ensure that the students had a voice in the important decisions affecting 
their education. The fine students heading the grade twelve class this year have made a great start in ensuring 
a strong student centred approach in the future. 

Much success was enjoyed in other areas of school life. Music in the school, in all its various guises, 
continues to impress and the final spring concert of the year was stunning. Guys and Dolls' provided an 
opportunity for the musicians and actors to strut their stuff in a most entertaining production. 

Although there was no Provincial Championships won on the sporting front, much success was gained in 
a wide variety of areas. Michael Danskin and Adam Dowhy represented Canada at the U 19 World Rugby 
Championships in Toulouse, France, helping the team to a creditable fourth place finish. At the same time 
the remainder of the 1st XV squad enjoyed a highly successful Celtic tour of the U.K. and then completed the 
season with an impressive third place finish at the B.C. Championships. Other strong performances came 
from the senior girls' basketball team who also had some tremendous wins finishing with a fourth place at the 
Provincial Championships and the senior girls' field hockey team which hosted an outstanding tournament at 
the University of Victoria and represented the school wonderfully in finishing third. 

Other strong performances were put forward in a wide variety of sporting areas and appropriately in the 
inaugural year of the school's climbing wall being installed, Laura Willihnganz represented Canada at the 
World Climbing Championships. 

Academic success is certain for a large number of graduating students, some of whom have earned 
wonderful opportunities at the university level and are destined for honours in the future. 

It has been a most enjoyable and successful year.

Director of Senior School

When I think of the 
twelve years that I have spent 
vi.ith Members of the class you 
see Behind me. I cannot help 
but be in awe of their individual 

accomplishments, talents, and personalities. I find it humbling to be speaking on behalf of such a talented class. The graduating 
class of 1998 is perhaps as diverse a class that has ever graduated from the school. My classmates hail from countries as far away 
as Thailand and our talents range from movie direction to singing Celine Dion to rock climbing. 

With this great diversity has grown tremendous strength. The class of 1998 has been afraid to take on nothing, be it security 
guards in the middle of the night or the idea that "schools and churches are the slowest institutions to change." The class's determi- 
nation and passion are to be greatly admired. The graduating class of 1998 is not ready to sit back and observe but rather is willing 
to rise to any challenge, and I assure you the school has provided us with many challenges! As a class we have painted a new 
window in the Chapel in what it seemed was the space of a couple of weeks, created a new mural in the fitness center, put on a 
brilliant performance of the musical "Guys and Dolls", and served on more committees and sub-committees than we would care to 
count. And this is only a fraction of the accomplishments of this class. We have been a credit to the school on all fronts. 

How has such a diverse group of 17 and 18 year olds been able to accomplish so much? I believe the answer lies partly in a 
group of individuals that have cared for us and taught us so much over the years. The staff of SMU are an eclectic bunch and the 
dedication and enthusiasm that so many of our teachers display is unparalleled. How many English classes can you leave with the 
teacher sweating buckets merely from being engrossed in Paradise Lost? How many Physics teachers have to retire because they 
are exhausted from waking up at Sam on a regular basis worrying about a student? So many members of the staff genuinely care 
about the student as a person, and have taken the extra time to make a real impact on who we are today. The other reason this 
class has been able to achieve so much success is because the students have learned to work together. Whether it was in boarding, 
a 7:30 am music class, or on a Squeaky run, we were learning to respect and admire the potential of others, as well as having some 
fun. The connections and friendships we have made will last a lifetime. I would like to share a quote from 'Ulysses' by Alfred. Lord 
Tennyson, in which he urges us to experience all that we can in our lives: 



"I am a part of all that I have met: 

Yet all experience in an arch where through 

Gleams that untraveled world whose margin fades 

Forever and forever when I move. 

Little remains: but every hour is saved 

And this gay spirit yearning in desire 

To follow knowledge like a sinking star. 

Beyond the utmost bound of human thought." 



Lying around on the common room couches in the quad, making a slurpee run rather than being exactly on time for math - 
those were the times when we were becoming a part of each other. We were forming memories that will always be a part of us. 
The majority of us will leave the school, city, and even country next year to "follow knowledge like a sinking star" but we will 
remain connected to each other forever, and I believe many of us will remain connected to the school forever. Next year we will 
move on to a different world - one where Mr. Cordle isn't there to hang out when things are tough, and one where Dr. Matthews 
won't be there to provide an optimistic solution regardless of the situation - but. with the strength of character and spirit we have 
gained from our time here, we will be ready to take on whatever the world has to offer. It is time for us to move on, and explore 
the world and ourselves. Some of us feel excited about moving onto a different phase in our lives, and some of us may feel very 
fearful about the transitions that are about to take place. Regardless of what we feel about the future. I think we all agree that one 
thing we feel about our past years is thankful. To all that have made our time here so enjoyable - Thank you.

Grade nines don't have it easy at the Senior school. Almost all of them were at the top of the heap last year; now, they find 
themselves the new kids, the youngest and the least powerful in a new environment. The grade nines have to prove themselves 
worthy of the school they worked hard to get into. They are faced with new teachers that know nothing about them, and new 
standards of excellence. Of twenty-one grade nines surveyed, the vast majority felt that the workload was greater then it was 
in past years. All but two people surveyed thought that the senior school offered more freedom to it's students, as compared to 
the school they last attended. Simply put, the senior school is like a double edged sword; it gives greater freedom at the cost 
of harder work. Also, of the grade nines surveyed, most felt that the teachers were of a better quality then the teachers they had 
last year. Not only are the teachers thought to be better, but more then half of the surveyed feel the senior school is a better 
school in general than the one they last attended. It seems that the senior school is doing it's job; it is enriching and teaching 
the minds of young adults, and molding them into what will become successful, productive adults, and it is doing so in a way that 
the students accept and understand. And the senior school starts the process with the grade nines; of course, they complain about 
how hard the work is and how much they hate their classes, but, as the school knows, hard work is good for them. Grade nines 
at the senior school will continue to complain about the work until the end of time, but one thing is certain; no matter how hard 
the work is, it will only do them good. Good luck to all of them as they finish their stay at the senior school.

Grade Ten. . .the year blessed (or cursed, depending on one's viewpoint) with graduating (hopefully) in the year 
2000. "Grad 00." This could make a cool sweatshirt design. However, there is much more to these not-quite- 
Grade-Elevens, but absolutely-not-Grade-Nines than the potential for nifty grad sweatshirts. The Grade Tens 
now know how the Senior School works, after ayear of being stuck with the ignominious label, "The ( supposedly 
immature, loud and obnoxious) Grade Nines." iu They know who the teachers are, they know their 
way around, and most impor- ^^^^^^^^^^J^^V ^^^^''^^''^^^ tantly, they know not to sit on the 
top bench in assembly (some- ^^^^--^ - '^^^T thing too frequently learned the 

hard way). Most students in "^^ lnY"^^/H (ill ^^^ the grade are looking foward to, 
or are already enjoying driv- " ^"^ V-J 1 CIv^ \J \J ^,^^^ ing lessons (Dad, why can't I go

with various notable personalities ^"^^^"^X^^^^ ^ (whosenamesarenotmentioneddueto 
the potential for slander suits filed against the yearbook editor). There is a wide range in academic ability 
throughout the grade, from potential Einsteins to those who. . . always show an abundance of effort (right...?). No 
names mentioned here either. Their abilities on the sports field are abundant (most of the time). At any rate, we 
shall soon how many of these jokers will get to wear the cool sweatshirts in two years. Good luck.

The Grade Trips: 

Grades 6, 7, 8, 9. 
and 11 had their 
grade trips in 
September and 
grade 10 had their 
trip in late May. A 



Outdoor Education: The Year in Review 

This has been a busy and exciting year for the outdoor education programme at St. Michaels. Among 
the highlights of this year were: 




wide range of options including rock climbing, mountaineering, sea 
kayaking, Whitewater kayaking, sailing, canoeing, backpacking, diving 
and fly fishing were offered. As always the enthusiasm of the students 
combuned with the expertise of the guides to provide a wonderful 
experience for all. 



Sunday Club Profframme / Saturday Ski Club 

This year we introduced a club format to our extra-cun'icular programme. Climbing, fly fishing, 
mountain biking, Whitewater kayaking and horseback riding were among the programmes offered 
throughout the year. This year we also developed a Saturday ski club that ran trips to Mt. Washing- 
ton on four Saturdays of the winter term. 




Outdoor Leadership Programme 

Last year represented the first 
year we employed grade 12 
students to act in a counselling 
role on grade 9 trips. The initial 
success of this venture has led to 
the development 





1 




^r^^ ^w- 



of a Grade 12 outdoor leadership credit course. This year 
twenty-seven grade 1 1 students participated in a wilderness 
first aid course, a five day winter experience and a five day 
spring experience in preparation for helping to supervise 
grade trips next year. 



Climbing Wall 

A bouldering facility was installed in the New Gym. The spring term saw limited use of the wall, but we hope to expand its use and offer more 
regulated hours next year. 



Duke of Edinburgh Award 

The Duke of Edinburgh Award programme has a 
long tradition at SMUS in providing a wonderful 
opportunity for students to be recognized for their 
efforts in community service, athletics, skills, and 
the outdoors. This year we had a large number of 
award winners in the bronze and silver categories. 
This year's bronze winners were Jessalyn Jennings, 





Ryan Jennings, Cameron Clarke, Eric 
Findlay, Greg Fowler, Heather Orr, 
andParrich Sawyer. Among this year's 
silver award winners were Jacqueline 
Goldstein, Claire Jones, Elizabeth 
Aitken, Jean Daniel, Vincent Lau, 
Chris Tse, Alfred Wong, Gordan 
Cheung, Heather Orr & Courtenay 
Congratulations to all! 



In closing, thank you to all for making this year's outdoor programmes such a success. Your enthusi- 
asm and effort is much appreciated!

Cllass of 1999! If there was a prize for "Tolerance", the grade 11 's should definitely be the ones tc 
get it. Late nights and early mornings., shut-eye at recess and lunch., what could sum it up 
better? We're going to be roughing it out the whole journey through, so enjoy the vacations! But., 
whoever said we wouldn't make it? The grade 1 1 outdoor challenge already proved that we were an energetic 
bunch. But no one told us that after the out trip, we would have to work, work, work! First, we had to adjust 
to the massive amounts of homework and to the fact that things seemed to happen all on the same day. But., 
we all took it well and managed to organize our schedules. . just in time for exams! After we beat the stress ol 
exams, we were in for more "homeowork strain." But, like the old saying tells us, "No pain, no gain!" So., 
we made it., feeling a little bit over-worked, but now, we're moving on! Very soon, we'll be known as "The 
Grad Class"., now, how about that??!! Good job everyone., that's another stage..

Halloween this year fell on a sunny day in an otherwise rainy 
week. So, as usual, the annual costume parade and contest was 
held outside in the Christine Duke Theater. The winners this 
year: Kathy Dawson, Maude Henri-Bhargava, Shawna McKee, 
and Jenni iVeenk for their cave girls ensemble, Chelsea 
Richardson for her wizard costume. Some other notable 
costumes were Ms. Roth's homemade dinosaur costume 





Z^ and Mr. Leggatt managed to top his pencil costume from 

' lastyearwithan innovative'man-in -the-shower' costume. 

There were noticeably more people in costume this year than 

last, probably due to the fact that if you decided not to come 

^ in costume, you had to wear your uniform, so wearing a 

^ costume was as close to a grub day as you could get!

Orad '98 




- The Year of the Monkey 




Elizabeth Aitken 



1993 - 1998 



Liz comes from a small navy municipality and can often hear echoing sounds of cannons going off at odd times. With a 
narrow escape from St. Margaret's she became part of the SMU community in grade 8. Throughout her 5 years here she 
played volleyball and jr. Basketball and enjoyed productions of Oliver, Cuckoo's Nest, the Musical Review Imatchmaker, Kier 
at Alex's, Blair jumping off the balcony]. Taming of the Shrew (going to 7-11 in full costume!], and Guys & Dolls (never to be 
seen in choral 2). Joffre (waist deep in snow) (watching the helicopter], Thunderbird (dripping black wet fleece], L&R's b- 
ball weekend (no words can describe 44 or R's carl], and Winter Olympic obsessions (go hard or go home], are things she'll 
never forget. Love to Mom, Dad, close family and friends, and all that have made my SMU experience great! 
"Sweets to the sweet: farewell!" 



Omar Alasaly

Carmen Ambery 



1997 - 1998 



This year marked the end of the beginning, with lots cif mcmcinos (now faces, car rally, park, bus stop, skiing) The endless ROY 
loving park posse. J.C. Next year keep your distance from wound boy. A.S. (my little red eyed traveler) 1 hope you find another 
rauz. L.T. Carlos, oui senorita a Spanish Italian. 

Little Miss E.T. Good luck with the Meister, Im glad someone made use of my window. N.A. I'll miss all those smoke sessions 
at O. And of course to L.K. (Miss yaddy yaddy yadda - rah rah rah) It was a long year, but we made it. I'll always remember our 
midnight escapades with Grunt howling in the background. Thanks for being there for me J.T. To everyone else thank you and 
good luck. 



Rebecca Anglin 



1986 - 1998 



Rebecca came to SMU in grade one to continue the Anglin tradition at the school. The junior school saw the forming of the 

4 shades and failing (Well what 1 consider failing- 52%) Math 5. The Middle school brought a reinstatement into top set 

math and at the senior school I managed to continue in that trend with the position of school captain scholar (before 1 leave, 

1 swear I'll find out what I'm meant to be doing, and It's not my job to run the Virgin's club!). This year has been full of 

committees and meetings but never fear, 1 will get all those Lunatics (Megan would you stop kicking me?!?). My Linnie- 1 will 

always admire you're radiant spirit - promise me ten years from now we'll run for hours in the rain. Iggy • 1 promise no 

more leaving messages for you on your machine, thanks for all the "deep talks" - I'll miss them. Rach Mag - no matter what 

you think, you are crazy and 1 love ya ... Tokka Tokka Tokka ... and one final tip - If you're going to drink, don't drink 

carrots. A word from the wise that 1 still haven't mastered "Kiss Slowly and Forgive Quickly". And of course after twelve 

years at the school all I really learnt is that "Shtuff does shtuff to other shtuff. " 





Jennifer Angus 



1994 - 1998 



I came to BC from the plains and it was (inc df the best moves I've ever made, besides the dancing moves of course' 1 would 
like to thank my teachers, my friends, and most of all my parents for their support and encouragement throughout the years. 
Allright, its pretty difficult to sum up my life at SMUS in 220 measley words, but 111 give it a try. Listen up..." I'm kinda 
scared to go to bed tonight 'cause I'm not so sure I'll wake up in the morning - could you give me a call?" ROY, ROY, and 
more ROY!!! toot toot whistle whistle - Shut up. car ralliesf poodle gang, misfits. Red Lion, and the 5 double 0). Me and my 
benzy keepin' it nice and easy. SPUMANTE, THUNDER, and EXPORTS, summer of '97. Hillside dressup days with Chi 
Chi and AT. red onions, lobster, steak, actually any kind of food would be just fine! stuck in the 80's. Tribe. Sugarhill. 
Jamiroquai. " 1 love the black d - - k! " Shout out to CP. CN, LW, AT, BH, JM, DA,TS, QB, AM, CL and everyone else I've 
shared all my good times with. "" " Cause you can rock and a roll with a so much soul you can rock 'till you're a hundred and 
one years old" - Sugarhill I'm outta here for good and things are only getting better. Keep smiling, cause 1 sure will. 



Nicole L. Arnctt

Yvonne Au 



1995 - 1998 



Yvonne is known for being the organiser of all activities participated (New Year dinner, Chinese night, bday parties. ..u name 
it!) by the cantonese gang. Arriving in Grade 10, she was recognised as a thoughtful, caring, talented pianist and a demand- 
ing girl which nothing can stand in her way. Grade 11 was her best year as most of her good friends were 97' grads...not to 
mention that she was found constantly with E.H but they're "just" good friends and she doesn't like him (yeah right!). She 
had a lot of fun in Gr.lO with her roomate Ssuen, taking pictures at midnight and the night time chat. Also, she learned to 
be a better cook as she is influenced by her roomate (Gkoo). That's why you never see her in Brown Hall in Grade 12! 
Yvonne decides to have a fresh new start in grade 12 by moving to Symons as a prefect. She'll always remember chilling 
with the Symons prefects: RChung. MLee. MVolk. KWong, and especially her roomate, VLee. She'll miss her 
buddies:Ymak.Csze,Mhau,Dyip,Schan,Slee, Ahuang, Achen, Ehung, Ang. Gchan. Awong. Ssin. Gcheung, Vlaw, Vlau, 
Jlee,Ctse. R&Jchung, DIee, Elai. Dtang, Clau...and many others. Special memories: Snowman making, nights on 
Mt.Tolmie(wonder what's she's doing up there??). Starbucks, Tubthumper for Airband. pigging out at Tomoe. cooking for 
boarders, and many more. 



Gavin Barry 



1986 - 1998 



Gav is a lifer, a maximum sentence, for a guy who had to wear the same clothes everyday for 12 years, at least he hasn't joined 

a cult, yet. Gr. 1 through gr. 5. were a happy time even though it's still a big blur except for "cows eat grass "?!?! Gr. 6-8 Gav 

saw that the world needed laughter so he became an exhibitionist to the joy of the teachers, also pre-pubescent strip shows and 

BANG!. Gr.9 brought the introduction to ROY. with AJ. AW and RK. Stupid stuff followed but it seemed so funny at the time. 

Romeo & Juliet "SHE'S FLAT MAN! ". Gr. 10 was "Skip for Swim" days and loss of cain brells. Gr. 11 brought a brave new 

world with home brew, the duct tape rings? $300 trips to the LQ. English bastard CS, Cadboro Bay, kids in cages, crazy NA, 

Dowhyfest 97: Thanx Dix, keep it tight. Gr. 12 is Kegs, X-mas at Whistler, hot tubs, January (parties through) Exams and the 

best is to come! Regrets not knowing Gr. 9's as well as he would like(wink wink). Memorable occasions: Provincial gold, 

Howard Russel and the parties that followed. The legacy ends with a few quotes: "like a complete unknown, just like a rolling 

stone " "Beware the cunning runt" VC stand up dammit. AW pipe down! ST, JM, AJ. CL, AS, The B-Timers and eveyone else 

here's some parting advice: 
"Take a step back once and a while, endulge your pleasure and go nuts." - Gav 





Lindsay Basarab 



1996 - 1998 



To everyone who has loved and encouraged me, and made me laugh, smile and momen- 
tarily forget — knowingly or not — thank-you. I won't ever forget you or the two years here 
whose experiences have made me who 1 am. 



There comes a time when one must risk something or sit forever with 
one's dreams. — Trever Preston 



Pamela Bedeski 



1991 - 1998 



Pamela (not Pam- it's a cooking oil!) first showed up at SMU back in grade 5 when she moved to Victoria from Nepean. 

Ontario. After two years, she hopped on a plane to Tokyo. Japan to spend one year learning the Japanese culture (Hello 

Kitty, Keroppi and shopping are the most memorable) and Japanese language at the local elementary school. She came 

back for grade 8 and 9 then took a year off again, this time at Claremont High School. She ended up coming back to SML 

for grade 12 and this was her most memorable year at school. While still unsure about where to attend University, she just 

got accepted to Michigan-Ann Arbor. Wisconsin-Madison and Western (with a full scholarship). Pamela had an excellent 

year and would like to thank her teachers, parents and her friends (AM, RS, DS, SW and everyone at lunch- you know who 

you are!). Looking forward to happy flashbacks- I'll miss all of you 





Mathcw Berg 



1995 - 1998 



Grade 12:' What the hell':'''' And now university'r'-' But I'm Swedish':''':' Somewhere back there, I must've entered the Twilujht 
Zone. Well, this last year has been the best(l say that every year to make the new people 1 meet each year happy). From car- 
rallies to days on end of TF. its been one hell of a what am I saying?? This couldn't be more cheesy, OK. lets move on 

to the initials of freaks and strange people Ive come to meet. To: JS, TF, TF. CS, CS, MB. JZ, AD.YW, EL, LI, JW. RC, 
JC. JH, Ml. I hope I haven't forgotten any people there. If I did. I'm sorry, I'll remember the foyer, non-existent privileges as 
a prefect(well some) and ABSOLUTly everything else. And by the way: That collection of bottles in my room: I admit: They 
were ALL mine(next time: count bottle-collections each month). I hope that we'll keep in touch(back to the cheese) but 
something tells me it won't happen, I know this is a horrible write-up but it took two minutes to write. Lots of love people 
from the Monopoly Champion/Basket-Ball Superstar of Sweden,

Matthew Boulton 



1993 - 1998 



I ve made it through five long arduous ^.'ears yup I II miss every minute.,, well maybe small bits and pieces; Lord of the Hies 
(except in Kayaks), the never ending movie nights, the Militant Bastards crushed inside the Tank, waiting in line for Star 
Wars with shifty Pete "Duct tape is like the Force, It has light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together,", 
"Whatever 1 say, no matter what,,, don't go left! ", the nightly jaunts to 7-1 1, and of course almost skiing, I hope I've 
improved with age and years of abuse from, and towards my friends, and I know its a cliche but I've only made it through due 
to you guys (you know who you are,,, I think). You've kept my sanity in check, by driving me crazy in a controlled environ- 
ment, and I just want to say thanks for putting up with me for so long, "All hail commando Bob! " Mwahaha,,, Indeed. 
Stay Frosty,

John Breasail 



1991 -1998 




As the tjreai pliilusO|iliei- ^'cilji Berra once said When you come tu a fork in the road, take it". John was thrown into SMU 
in grade six back in the fall of 1991. a new school... a private school... and... uniforms'' Then came senior school. FUN 
STUFF. John fell out of the athletic scene and discovered a new love of wasting his time. And then... basketball. Unfortu- 
nately, that dream was killed. Then came the phase of "hey. whaddaya gonna do? ". Oh and one more thing "when life 
throws you lemons, throw them back, only harder.'" Nighty-night.

1 would like to thank everyone who has made me laugh, listened to me rant, helped me cry. and above all amused me. I 
would especially like to thank Chris "I'm a Musician " Smith. Matty Boulton and the great historian/cynic/story-teller Dave 
Lynch. Your support has been amazing and I will forever "appreciate " your friendships. To the rest of the Bottom-floor 
Challoner dudes and everyone else: thanks for all the fun. it's been a blast. Fieldtrips in Wolfgang have been very entertaining 
(len. you are still the best shotgun/slurpee holder!), movie nights have been highly amusing and squishing into a Buick is quite 
the adventure. My biggest thanks goes to my bestest friend in the WHOLE world: the one and the only Ms. Jenali Franklini. 
We've been through it all babe and I couldn't have made it without you. After all, you are the wind beneath my wings (sorry, 
couldn't resist!). You are the only person with whom 1 can listen to sappy songs (see above), watch female bonding movies 
(and cry - you taught me well oh Great One), giggle in class (stop poking me), talk in strange voices (pow-er), go on road trips 
(woohoo) and philosophize (de-angsting anyone?)! Wow, twelve years (and a little bit) - 1 love ye babe. Thank you SMU and 
Grad 98 for all the memories and don't forget to smile - It makes life better... 



Goldie Chan 



1996 - 1998 



Goldie (aka Gum Gum) came to SMU in Gr. IL We will always remember her loving, outgoing and caring personality. In her 

first year, she had a lot of night time talks with Ang. Mwong. Jchung. She became a prefect in Timmis House in Gr.l2. She 

had also played in the Badminton team for 2 years. Congrats! In her own free time, she absolutely love singing and is well 

known for her outstanding ability and broad knowledge of pop songs. Of course, we will not 4-get that 3 mysterious guys: 

"Central ". "Tree Watch" and ""???" (Hint: the longest road in HK). Her obssession with shoes — from gold velvet platforms 

to funky boots made her style unique. (But you REALLY shouldn't wear high heels...!) We won't be surprised if she becomes 

a fashion designer someday, and of course there will be a line of shimmering gold makeup and shocking pink clothes — her 

favourite! Her loving memories include buddies: Ang.J&Rchung. Mwong. Yau.Ssin.Gkoo.Gcheung.Elai.Ahuang.Awong.Dlee. 

Mvolk.Astaseson and the fun times like:doing last minute sketches for art, mid-night crammings for chemistry tests, 

depression cooking at night (lovable chicken leg), late night drinking parties and bottles everywhere (exposed to the 
houseparents), mt. tolmie night, talent show... Lastly, you will always stay in our hearts and will be always be appreciated by 

everyone. We all wish you a happy life wherever you are!!! 





Jim Chantratip 



1997 - 1998 



Jim come to SMUS in grade 12. Living in the school resident, he shared a room with David Tseng. Althougth this had been 
there for only 1 year, he spend more time in his room than David ever did in 3 years. For him, it was actually a lot of fun 
and so many things to do there. "People just always some into my room to play on my computer." said Jim. "My was was 
technically a game arcate. It was a great year for him and next year he will be going to University of Minnesota for engineer- 
ing, but he will never forget such a wonderful time in SMUS 



Alan Chen 



1995 - 1998 



"Oh. nice vocal solo... but where's the singer?" 

Although Alan Chen is not "obvious" & does not "stand out" among others, he is always the cutest, funniest, and most optimistic 

fellow. He possesses the power that one cannot believe: he could stay up whole night (actuall) three nights in a row ) cramming for 

tests; he could sing a note the highest and longest; he could finish the expert minesweeper in 99 sec (although his math is not thai 

good). However, don't he fooled by his innocent and conservative look, because you'll never want to know what's in his mind 

Seeking for pretty girls in kindergarten, singing songs to woo them, and then harassing them in every way. Alan, however, does 

possess some passionate love - especially toward animals. He takes care of a Donkey in Barnacle, visits the hedgehogs regularly to 

make sure that it is well fed. never forgets to bring bananas to Harvey Monkey, and plays around with David T.'s bird once in a while. 

"Time is growing short" - so is his height. Good luck to him in the future. Watch out guys, girls and animals, he will come back for 

vou. 





Gordon Cheung 



1995 - 1998 



Gordon, Gor"DON", the cheung miceter, cheungster, remembers his innocent self back in gr. 10! The "clown" with the long(er) hair, 
runs around and entertains people. His disastrous attempt to go for Someone''!? Wrestling with the sand eating Beefy Chuck 
roommate. Being the shortest kid in grade 10. he radically turns his head into a hedgehog in gr. 1 1. With the new "style", he got a 
Relationship with someone «hiCh ended on the next day. He remembers Tolmie nights with the guys (and gals). To "god sister" 
S.S. and C.S.: good luck in university. His real life actually begins in gr. 12 in which he shaved his head and finally got a real 
GirlFriend. They are \ery CLOSE, when they are together, even in common room, you can only see "ONE" creature. Personality 
changed too. Not to mention how calm he was at Danskin's house after car rally or what is constantly there "behind his table", 
"underneath his bed" and "up on the shelves"!! People wonder how does his eight Citron build up.... He enjoys talking back to 
Mr. Fisher, wondering In and out the classroom while Mr. Stoll is so-called "teaching" and photocopying Mr. McCracken's 
worksheets at nisht. Rooming with Leni. he sets the sen... .sen... sensa.... that's a hard word to sav!! thanx to:

Brandon Chiu 



1993 - 1998 



Brandon came to SMU in Gr.8 and became a member of Barnacle House. He quickly adapted to the environment and met 

a lot of friends. The next year, he quitted boarding and decided to live with his parents realizing that his parents are more 

attractive than house parents. When people go to hillside, they would always remember Brandon and his white house. He 

has been an active student in school academically, and yet a lazy fellow physically. Fortunately, he still manages to minimize 

his 2400m from 25 min to 15 min. Also, he starts a new business outside his house by selling parking spaces to others 

ranging from Toyota to BMW to Cherokee owners. To the Taiwanese, good luck in the future. One day our paths shall 

cross again. Without Brandon, we wouldn't have made it.

Jack Chiu 



1993 - 1998 



1 slept, I played, I laughed and cried, I drank and drove.! did car rally, read 5 novels in one night, played Quake, Warcraft 

until 5am. wasted 35 bucks in Jonny Zees., dressed as a Monkey scholar in Halloween, told Calculus jokes over the phone. 
I've had 5 roommates, each of whom came from 5 different parts of the world; 1 enjoyed their musics. I've improvised jazz 
music in Ontario and Cuba with my trumpet. I have had no banana for 1 week, no instant noodles for 3 months, no movies 
for 6 months. I've blocked Eric Kim numerous times in basketball court, and afterward fallen asleep (too tired) while studying 
on my desk, on my chair, in the washroom, on Vince Lau's bed. in Alan Lin's couch. I've skipped half of the physics classes 
but then attended the French class I've already dropped just for fun. 1 tried but failed to make the record of taking the 
greatest number of AP courses in school, including "AP Alcoholism ". 1 was always totally lost in biology: kidney hysiology 
flowed into my ear. but did not synapse with my neuron. ...still 1 managed keep my school captain post. How could 1 have 
achieved so much? Because I've had you all. my friends. Thank you so much. 



Nicholas Chng 



1996 - 1998 



Nick was admitted into the hallowed halls of SMUS in the fall of 96. due to one of many errors in adminstration. Moving 

here from Jakarta, Indonesia, he was immediately impressed by the school's excellence, the most apparent example being 

that they let him in even after missing the first 2 pages of his entrance exam. Transition was easy, in no small part due to 

the efforts of his roommate Yos to give the room that real third world feel. In Grade 12. Nick could often be spotted 

shivering from the cold as he walked from class to class, martyred for the sake of school standards, but in his spare time, he 

taught his untermenchen roommate Nate (the Feuhrer) the fine art of sniping, and in exchange his roommate agreed not to 

tear up any more of Nick's university applications the night before they were due (grrrr...) He II definitely miss late night 

email-fests and plagarizing Dr. Seuss. Good luck to all of you, the Bolton Buds, and my friends in other houses., but it s T.F. 

I'll really miss... ah Team Fortress, we had but a short time together.. Isniff I To all the grads: Take care and have fun in 

Harvard/UVic/Local College/McDonalds. To the younger inmates, enjoy the motion-sensor floodlights and electronic 

keypads, and I'll see you guys on the other side of the wall =P

Victor Chu 



1993 - 1998 



Victor entered SMU in grade 8 (one year he'd really like to forget). Victor's experience in Senior School, was quite unforget- 
table, especially being in the same French class for 3 years. Year 1: a non-productive but enjoyable year with G.P.. E.M.. 
V D. R.M. Year 2; G.P.. E.M. - getting ripped off by D.M. "If its too good to be true, it probably is. " Year 3: S.P., G.P. - 
E M 's cheats for vocab. The spring of grade 11 began the daily routine of the stress relieving car rides during recess and 
lunch, with G.B., V.D., E.M., R.M., with G.P. joining in grade 12. To the peeps: A.D. - One of the better influences on me. 
E M. (Closet East Coaster) - You've gotta tell your c's what time it is. G.P.s: "OK so how do we get home?" G.P. - Lay off 
the breakfast bars. Nice gloves! R.M. - Sorry about the carpet. Remember not to stumble around aimlessly around 
downtown and get busted again. V.D. - Save your money, don't waste it on N64, oh yea, you've got to stop the constant 
nagging to borrow money, and BT's. G.B. - Thanks for your feeble attempt to actually catch me. E.M.. G.P,. V.D., 
remember this? "So where you kids from?", "Uhhhhh, Squamish ", P.S. nothing happened (well, that I can remember) at 
B,S.'s or the res so let's keep it at that. Lastly, Victor would like to thank his parents for sending him to SMU. 



Jamie Chung 



1995 - 1998 



How many Saturday nights have there been in three years of boarding? I don't know, too many to remember, yet enough

Ashley Cornwell 



1989 - 1998 



Ashley came to SMUS from GNS in grade 4 and never looked back. She remembers her years here best by all the little 

things no one else would have, like ,.. well, nevermind. The best year was the last one — we could never have too many 

spares in the grad room, and it was just the best. She is not impatient to get on with the rest of her life but hopes to 

gradually work her way up the corporate ladder without becoming too conspicuous and later on move to someplace nice and 

warm and never come back. To DB, KL and JN, keep playing B-ball, you guys rock the court, TS: take Mr. Jones advice. 

You should too QB and all I can say is you'll never know. JT; keep the love alive. I hope I'll see you one day in that SL. To 

everyone who doubts me. remember you can never be sure. An extraspecial thank you to NW for helping me believe in 

myself and for being my best friend.Everyone keep the peace, and remember: "through whatever you see, through all the 

rain and the pain you've got to keep your sense of humor. You've got to be able to smile through all of this. Remember 

that." — from "Smile

Jean Daniel 



1993 - 1998 



Where do I begin! I came to SMU in grade 8 where I met many new friends and became used to calling teachers "sir" and 

"maam". Probably my scariest memory of middle school was the Mt. Baker ski trip where B.H.. who had never skied before. 

slid down an ice shoot and fell off a cliff. Next obsticle: Senior School! Field hockey, more new friends and of course. 

ABBA! Being a teeny hopper', the phone became another new friend. Next hurdle boys? Many a late night conversation 

with J.B.. K.S.. A.K. over that subject! Other than school, outdoor trips were a blast, especially Leadership with "Leopold' 

Somehow my nick-name changed from "Betsy " to ""Elaine " on that trip. GET OUT! 1 won't say too much about parties 

because it seems that K.S., J.B.L.D.and K.L. have already clung to my strange yet funny late night party lines and unex 

plainable "puffs " eating habits! Ask them! Speaking of parties, or b-day parties, my favorite movie is still "16 Candles" ( 

yup...uh..huh..) Anyway, 1 don't know where I'd be today if my friends and teachers hadn't shown me the support or the 1 

can-do-it remedy. I know this support will help me in my future job. kindergarten teacher (and that's not so 1 can be at the 

same level as the kids, just in case anyone was wondering!)>

school, to my friends for always being there and for the best times , and to my family for the great opportunity. "My rule, in

will never forget you. so please remember me. 1 wish you all the best, GOOD LUCK!

1993 - 1998 



Five years at SMUS and they've ended on a high note! I came to SMUS in Gr. 8 and quickly took to the Rugby Field. Grade 
8 was over before 1 knew it and was led to bigger and better things in the Senior School — especially Rugby. Rugby has been 
a major part of my life at SMUS with extraordinary teammates (EF. MD, AD. AJ, GB) impeccable Coaching and a Provincial 
Championship! And after you win you gotta celebrate — leaving me with fond memories of Rugby Parties at EF s & GB s( 
Howard Russell's and all), bedspins and dented car roofs at Sodafests and the unforgettable Dowhyfests! RK and whipped 
cream at JT's. Card games at JB's and Bond at TS's. All this with some great Rugby players and friends. French class 3 
years in a row with CP and JZ. Driving QB home after the Beef Eating Contests (Sand and all) and troublesome A&W chairs 
at the car rally. The boarding guys, OA, NC, GN, NM. SR, GW & co. I've also worked hard in school ("Hi Sir! " & The 
Human Calculator ) and spent a lot of time in the bookstore (Thanks TC!) All of this started with early morning car rides with 
VC and ended returning with EM. Its been hard work, but that's why 1 was here and that's why I'm leaving — moving off to 
bigger things (not better.) I'll miss you all, from the big guy — The Dew.

1994 - 1998 



Four years is a long time to spend in one place. Sheryl would like to thank all her friends for the good times and 

good memories. 





Adam Dowhy 



1994 - 1998 



Adam came to SMUS armed with Mettalica shirts, long hair, and some brand new rugby cleats. In Gr.9 Adam remembers 
his first Dowhyfest and his first rugby game. Gr.lO was Adams first good year of rugby 

and likes to remember the England tour with MD, EF, GS, JV, JL. CD, SL (OB), and DS (sorry about jobbers, I should have 
been there!). Gr.lO summer brought more rugby and beers with boner and fatty. ^n -re n/ir-> 

Gr 1 1 rocked; Canada U-17 England tour will not be forgotten. Dowhyfest 97' was bumpin' with the boys (JT, CP, TS. MD, 
QB RL, ST. GB, NM, GW, OA. GN, TS, CK, AJ, AD, EF. JG, JV, GG, SR, MM, JP, EL, BS, JO, and all those I forgot- 
hope you had a blast), the gals ( AS, KH, CL, JA, CP), and not forgetting my baby KR, you rock. BC CHAMPIONS is all I 
have to say. Gr.ll summer was awesome. The BC U-19 team cuckoo nuts and nights spent arguing with KR was worth it. 
Gr. 12 has hopefully been a repeat. I'd like to thank my parents, brothers, friends roomates (JF, HL, LE, TR, the Harvey 
boys (take care of Mrs.J ), teachers, and last but not least "The Commander (RIP) " for helping me see my potential. 



Megan Doyle 



1990 - 1998 



My wings are set free as if to start a new life. High school is over and L'nueisitv apin. i.k in^ rapidly. 7 great years have 

passed at S.M.U. highlights including: playing on U-16 soccer team, maypole dancing at the Spring fair, giggling in Spanish, 

and my outdoor education trips. My family and teachers were such a big influence on me. and I wish to thank everyone who 

helped me through some of the most difficult years of my life. So many people have come and gone in our class, and 1 am 

so proud of everyone who persevered to graduation. 1 will miss you all, and 1 wish the best for years to come. 





Victor Drohomirecki 1993 - 1998 



Wassup!!!!! I jus like to start off by saying word up to the man upstairs and word up to my brothaaaaassss. Secondly it sucks 
that 1 have half of my best year at school to go which can't be on the write up but whatever. Grade 12 so far is hard and I 
figure it's because of 3 years of listening to rap in art, not that smooth Japanese tobacco. I came to SMUS in grade 8 and 

met A.S. and J.R., 1 never laughed so much while playing football. (A.S., J.R., J.T., R.K.. D.G..B.H ) Gr. 8 also 

introduced me to the computer nerd. (What a bunch of hardcores) G.P..V.C..E.M., busted by the chaperone. Gr 10 came 
and I was off to the school plays. A.W., pss pss pss psssss, oh yeah, thats the stuff. I can't remember much from that year 
because I got KOed from rugby ant that really choked my ckicken. Off to gr. 1 1/12, C.P., don't let me catch you strokin 
anymore aight. EM. and N.N, its kinked and 1 can't get it in! Da B-timers. fresh air may cause fetis dammage. T.S. 
ramming A.S.'s car in F.H.'s backyard. Now for all you wannabe grads that think you will be as kickin' as grad 98, goodluck. 
Well, lean't think of anything else so to all my brothers I missed. Peace! To all the memories I missed, they'll go up in smoke 
this summer with my braincells. A great man once said: "Women, you can't live with em, you can't kill em." Al Bundy

Jenny Franklin 



1986 - 1998 



Hello all, I've spent my time being designated siurpee holder in Wolfgang (shotgun!), babbling about Superman and 
Mounties, being a phone psychiatrist, slacking off, and lurking in my hermit shell. Do I look like a tree? There's too much 
blood in my caffeine system. It's not a shrine! Shut up Drake! To all my bottom floor Challoner buds - you rock my world, 
thanks for putting up with me and making me smile... no matter how much 1 glare at you. When in trouble, call the Wong- 
Team! Adventures at Shelbourne Plaza and movie nights, "I'm a Musician! ", 8 people in a Buick is surprisingly comfortable. 
Lisa, is 'wet nose' a euphemism for something? Oh, and guess what!! Uh.. nevermind. Megan, my bestest friend, you are 
the wind beneath my wings: I couldn't have survived any of this without you. Love you babe. Chick movie (sob)/de-angsting 
nights and philosophizing during PE, pow-er, are you talking into the phone? Road trip! To everybody at SMU who has 
affected my life, positively or negatively over the years, thank you kindly. : )

Trevor Freeman 



1994 - 1998 



"I came, I saw, and I graduated And all 1 have to say is, finally it s over Yes, school is over, and we are free. Free to enter 
a University with a one way ticket to more years of school (does it ever end?). As for my years at SMUS (3 of them, grades 
9,10, and 12) they were actually pretty good. Grade 12 was a blast. I actually got to have spares, and I didn't have to skip 
to get them. Of course. I never skipped (except for french in grade 10, but does french really count?), never had the guts to 
do it. But that's besides the point. School's over so what does it matter. As for everyone I know, I hope you do well, I'll 
always remember skipping french and playing bomberman with Chris Stolarski, while eating Peter Kims food... As for the 
rest of the time, it went by in a blur of playing too much quake, and staying up too late. I don't think that 1 once woke up for 
breakfast. Anyhow, good luck to all of you: C,S.. C.S, *2. M,B, N,C. N,M,, S,W.. J.W.. L.I.. R.C. J.C. O.A.. G,W.. and 
T.F. (Team Fortress that is). Oh, Omar and Grant, did I ever tell you guys that your both huge? Later.., Its been sweet. " 



Joseph Gardener 1996-1998 



My life at Smu began in grade 11 with new people, my second life away from home; a new beginning! Day by day past, new 
friends . new places, all were a blur. Grade 1 1 was good but grade 12 got even better, I want to say hi to my friends in E- 
town especially D.J ( Thanks for the hoots of fun on the weekends in grade 10). My Grade 11 shout-outs go to my room- 
mate State and my English Bloke Chris Stephens. To GB, JM, CN, CS, SP and the Big Duke of Sooke A,D thanks for 
making my first year exciting. Grade 12 -f the other Shout-outs go first to my main J-buck Jon Fraser. To the rest (in no 
particularly order) Big Turk ( 1 had a handicap), old school friend JA- RB (1 owned the chair )- KC ( Why don't vou cry)-

See ya-G-Yeah -I'm out- Thanks! 





Timothy Gerbrandt 1997 - 1998 



Change is great, and jumping from one high school to another. I learned to adapt from American NJROTC customs, like 
military parades and inspections, to SMU customs, like going to Chapel. Out of the different regional accents I've been 
forced to endure, including Caymanian. and Southern United States, the Canadia eh' has been a good accent to return to 
for my senior year. 1 hope that I will continue to enjoy my quest to answer the giant question mark (my life!) as much as I 
have at St. Michaels. In the great words of Pink Floyd, "For long you live and high you fly, and smiles you'll give and tears 
you'll cry, and all you touch and all you see, is all your life will ever be."T,J 



Simmi Gill 



1996 - 1998 



I'd like to thank all my friends, you know who you are for the memorable two years. Twelve years of school have finally 
ending and it's just beginning. Good Luck! Once again. I want to thank anyone and everyone who made me happy over the 

past two years. See ya! 





Bailey Harang 



1993 - 1998 



Bailey came to SMU in grade S to live in the giant metropolis of Victoria. She made many new friends and together they 
perfected the art of bowling. Bailey remembers some of the fun times she's had- they include: Roofiie nights DT with EY, 
the dub machine, glue withdralls. many different hair colors, sauce mansion. Silverstar. Tolmie parties. The Parti. Ernest, 
Spuzzum. ROY. The Misfits. Rockclimbing trips. fToochie Mamas. Spumante. Mike's hard. My Big Baby, Freddy the 
Freeloaders, Statacona Park, B's and J's in the B-room, Rids, the Pipelayers, and a bunch of inappropriate subject matter. 
Thanks to AT for always being there and for all the fun times! Thanks to AJ for being the best friend a girl could want! (I 
love you always and forever!) 



Daniel Hong 



1993 - 1998 



Congratulations, Grad 98 





Steven Hsu 



1993 - 1998 



Steven, the first-ever-female student in Barnacle House, surprisingly retains her virginity through the 5 years in SMU. 

However, this could be explained by looking at pg.230 in 1995 - 1997 yearbook. His (or her. it's all relative to others) 

attempts to attract the opposite sexes are part of hisAier normal life. Some of his more intimate friends are all in his 

computer programming class such as Alfred Wong & Gordon Cheung. It's been happy and sad at times and it's been good 

and bad. His only hobby - screwing up the school network - has earned him respect from his fellow peers. 

To Grad 98': it has been great years and thanks for all the support. 

To Taiwanese: See u in New York!!(hehehe) 

To Korean & Cantonese: b(v)o ya 1 go!! I've mastered your languages. 

" To be or not to be, that is the question." 



Anna Huang 



1993 - 1998 



Anna has lived in SMU for 5 years {can you believe it?). However, she was able to enjoy every minute of it. Starting from 

Gr.8; being active and enthusiatic grows up to be a person who rarely touches her flat bball. Sweet memories like dancing 

floor, water fights. Gr. 9 out-door trip (canoeing. 5 days without dry clothes), major contribution of 3 gigantic turtles to the 

bio lab and encourage others to do the same, crazy nights on Mt. Tolmie, and all the procrastination and pathetic excuses 

for not doing work in her final year. Personal thanks to Jamie, Renee and Daidee for putting up with all the crap; Carol W 

for sharing secrets with everyone (X.C and X.C), Simon W for doing all the stupidest things, yet. everyone loves. Susan S 

and Dan I for all the laughs. Kim E-L for making us "look " so special. Thanks to all other true friends. Y.A. D.T. T.W. C.S. 

C.Y. L.C. to other friends who shared good moments, and ICQ buddies. Thanks to all the roommates (S.Y. T.C. A.T. A.W, 

C.W. J.C) and to all the sister in Timmis : ) 





Charles Huang 



1993 - 1998 



"Oh, the school has a Chinese house parent!" "Sir. can you tell me where the washroom is?" 

(the usual responses from every visiting parent and new student seeing Charles). 

You can probably guess one's age by his appearance, but this never applies to Charles. 

Don't underestimate his power though. 265 points in bowling. 5 girl friends in 3 years, average of $300 / month long 

distance calls despite the savings from Sprint Canada, having a Korean roommate for 5 years - these remarkable records 

somehow make him the leader of the Taiwanese as well as the ambassador between Taiwan and Korea. 

Charles, contrasting the usual view, is rather humorous. One can often see him outside Symons and Barnacle telling jokes. 

While his muscles (once so attractive to girls) have deteriorated, his people skills (especially to girls) have improved. Charles is 

also well known for the extraordinarily long period of time he stays in his room every day with his roommate, but never on 

weekends. To his dearest friend Jack Chiu. he felt sorry tor giving him the nick name Monkey. His experience in SMUS can 

be summed up in a Chinese slang: "Gan nin lau shi le. Song la " 



Emily Huddart 



1993 - 1998 



Emily will most likely be remembered by her friends for her scintillating mind and her snarky comments. Her 5 years at 

SM.U.S. will be fondly forgot as she can't wait to get out and travel. Some experiences she enjoyed were the trips to 

Penticton. the West Coast Trail. Juan de Fuca. Galapagos, the Himalayas and the parking lot of the Limit. She was an 

active participant in the S.M.U.S. community, being a member of the Communist Outdoor Club, the devious Chapel Club. 

the Heater Club and the A-P Movement Club that met once on Day 1 . She also enjoys experiments with relish and has had 

enough of Hamlet to last the rest of her life. Comrade Huddart has big plans for the future; any who attempt to impede 

them will be threatened with forks. Finally, she'd like to thank Uncle Herman-Donald for his great support. We'll never 

forget you. Emily. From Leah.

1991 - 1998

Eric Kim 



1995 - 1998 



In Grade 10, Eric first appeared at SMUS as a boarder in Bolton House. However, leaving behind the rumor about affair 
with his roommate LW, he left Bolton and became a part of DAY community in Grade 11. Many people still recognize him 
as a boarder because most of his friends are boarders. Eric seems to be growing taller and taller even though he insists that 
he is only 6' tall. Eric can be often seen in the gym playing basketball in the air(using the advantage of his height). In Grade 
1 1, he was a Maskman for a week after breaking his nose in a rugby game. However, the world changes when he plays the 
cello. Those moments when he performed with Victoria Symphony and when he was playing a trick on one string in the 
chapel are still vivid. He says that he really loves SMUS orchestra except the fact that Violin II encroached upon the Cello's 
traditional place. Eric's worst memory at SMUS is playing in a PIT orcfiestra for 'Oklahoma' and 'Guys and Dolls'. He 
described himself PITiful there. Eric will miss SMUS and perhaps Canada if he becomes a part of IVY institution. Also, he 
will miss all of his dearest friends: ML. JC, AW, VL, JL, DC. EK.... 



Nancy Kim 



1995 - 1998 



Nancy (Nayoung) came to SMUS in Gr,10 with sunjin looking appearance She joined the Winslow and for the last two 

years, she lived with the lovely roommate who loves apples and pink pigs sooooooooo much.... well, u could say all the pigs. 

Nancy had several nick names such as sambalee, sleeping beauty, hinja. pink princess, and pochacco. The most gracious 

ML bestowed the last two after the Christmas of 1996. Her favourite times were when she drank SOOL with her friends, 

and did SAETAL. and ate MUN. She also remembers when she was in Gr. 10. Nayoung just loved gossiping on the phone. 

She still does but.u know.... Although she had some tough experiences such as eating MUN. and 7AM's to overcome at 

SMUS, but the years at SMUS have been great. Few words from Nayoungee: As ML mentioned above, my years at SMUS 

have been great. Well, not all the time but... I'll never forget walking to Starbucks after prep with SS, GS....AII these nights 

with ML, EK, AL, SW, JY, CY.... talks, laughs, and tears. ..Ill miss ya all to CK.YY. MY, DC, YL, SL, DH. HB, PK, JH, DH, 

RS....and all the rest of Koreans.... Keep in touch, and don't ever ever ever forget the times u spent with me....U'll be sorry if 

u do.SA RANG HAE and wish u all the best of luck in the future!!!! 





Peter Kim 



1994 - 1998 



Peter(Pdi: — the nicest Korean, came to SMUS in Grade 9 and became one of Harvey House wall bangers. First 

week at SMUS was very exciting for him. Within a week in the boarding House, he had to change the roommate after the 
bloody fight(I am sorry BL). He also had to run 2400m with full witer clothes in September as a punishment from his mighty 
Korean Hyungs for embarrasing the Korean society. Peter won't forget the great time with DH, RS,JH, 
CE,SB,YT.DT.SH,CH,CY,AC,GC,SR.... He will miss you all and "Yul SSimHi Sal A La" to every one! This is the list of 
things that Peter won't forget. 
IjWeekend routine(Tatami+movie) 2)Lin Heung after school and Domino's Buffalo wings at night 

3)Doom II and Warcraft(especially Doomll with SC) 4)Taking over the Symmon's House Sofa ML 

5)The worst smell in the world Romanchuck's fart. 6)3 a,m. Chinese delivery(There is only one restaurant that is opened at 
3 a.m.) 7)After prep work out 



Craig Kirk 



1991 - 1998 



MAPLE LEAFS FOREVER!!!! Whew, now that I got that out of the v\.u. 1 can talk about me. I came to the school in grade 
six and I remember thinking only seven years to go until I'm outta here. Boy, it' been a long time!!! I've improved slightly 
from grade six, eg. my 2400m runs have been cut from twenty minutes to ten; my weight hasn't changed much {fortunately 
my height has). At the beginning of grade twelve things started up at a hectic pace; grad committees, university preparation, 
the car rally in which I shaved my eyebrow, and the time I dressed up as a women for a grad raffle. Outside of school, I went 
to the 1998 NHL All Star game in Vancouver and had a great time. Some people might tell you I am a hockey fanatic but I 
only know everything about hockey from about 1890 onwards; so, in the great scheme of things that's not too much. Plans 
for after school ideally would be something in (you guessed it) a hockey franchise. I don't want to name initials because I 
might forget someone; but the people I've spent my time with at SMUS, you know who you are and thanks for the memo- 
ries. Many thanks to my parents for the opportunity to learn and graduate at this SMUS. LONG LIVE THE 160 SITUPS 

KING!! 





Lindsay Knaak 



1997 - 1998 



Coming to SMU mv grad year - not an easy task, though a promising start. All the new faces, help from Roxy.settling into 
the Timmis tribe, the best roomie, making our bonds, cruising in the pimp-mobile with Daddy himself, the cube-meister and 
all our plans, the park posse and packs at a time, the hours of assisting the ill , the undisclosed tales of ladies night at the 
Black house, not to mention all the other sleepless nights and the Pac-obsessed perv., making good use of little miss C's first 
floor suite, the midnight strolls and the b.s.-er...yadda, yadda, yadda.And a special thank you to chico migrana who was 
always there for me. My first year and my last. An experience. 



Grace Koo 



1996-1998 



It seems just yesterday when I first arrived at SMU in September, 1996 from Hong Kong. I still remember how 
uneasy and nervous 1 was when 1 went through the registration in the hall and how my stomach churned when my parents 
bid me goodbye. Coming to SMU for my last two years of high school was not only my first significant decision I was allowed 
to make for myself but it also marked a major benchmark in my life. It was recognition of personal integrity, independence 
trust and lice on the part of my parents. 1 really have to thank them and my dear sisters for their encouragement and 
support SMU opens my eyes to the real world in a co-educational environment Now. 1 am conforming to the norm of co- 
existence of both genders. Laughter, sweat and tears sum up my last two years at SMU, 1 could never forget the good time 1 
had, cooking the big meals in Brown Hall for the Chinese Night, It was so much fun and hard work; of course, 1 enjoyed it so 
much Here 1 am, ready to move on, 1 am proud to say 1 am more confident and mature to take on further challenges in the 
next stage of my life. Thank vou to all the staff of SMU for giving me a good education and thank you to my fellow students 

for giving me so many happy memories.

Vince Lau 



1995 - 1998 



An'.'thei day; another night, Ancither colorful day; another cramming night Another lying-on-the-hed itanng-at-the 
computer listening-to-the-roommate's rap-songs 12;00 midnight. Another "Absolut"; Another love story (though not my 
own); Another school day ever since Gr.lO; - yet my life is not at all uneventfuhl battled between BC Calculus & AP 
Alcoholism - with a TI-83 in my left hand and a glass in my right - the latter always won. I looked at people from head to toe 
(up, down, up and down). I had laughters in my SAT struggle- I learn deeper meaning in vocab. like Short Eggplant. 

Dogmatic. Cheater. Superman. Happy Together. Car Rally. Mt. Tolmie I loved my Buddies, my B-ball. my Quake and 

my Khalua - they are my usual companions. I sang in various styles, from Requiem to modern rap; I listened to more types 
of songs than I sang. I conducted unusual chemistry experiment on winery and succeeded, and I had have tasted food from 
every restaurant in town. I ran a theatre in my room, showing movies from Lion King to Vivian Hsu. I had gone through a 
typical SMU boarder's life, yet with a much more colorful process and experience. ... that's my life in SMU. and I enjoyed it. 
To the friends I will miss; as you read this, you know who you are.

Jason Lee 



1995 - 1998 



Jason came to SMU, under "short winter-melon" 's roof, in Grade 10 where he immediately enrolled in the "Hung-Hing 

Association" with AW. GC. CT and VL. These Cantonese Crews begin with cooking noodles, then fighting together with 

the D.E.I.V. in the court and finally drinking "orange-juice " at night talks about the "monsters". This is tough; but Jason is 

able to survive because he always races to the Bball court(where CT kindly donates his first kiss to "fai hai"!) to play with his 

buddies from all over the world. In addition. Jason enjoys his night talks with the Barnacle guys where noises often disturb 

the GSS. Of course, he always listens to the lecture" by Jack the "Scorer" and gives out advises on DNKY's attempted take 

over of CK. Jason also like to thank SL for making him better friends with AW(discussing plans and theories) : SC for 

giving him an interest in economics: GF. the student who still owe him $, for introducing MH(Good Job!) to him; and his 

beloved friends on the net(who know who they are) for making long night talks with Jas. Special thanks to A-LA-SAA-LI. 

the tank, who acts with him in the movie produced by the "art man" from UVIC and generates the "expensive-phone-call-to- 

parents theory", for his support and advises both on life and school-work. Thanks everyone! 





Joanna Lee 



1995 - 1998 



Joanna was born and raised in Victoria and entered SMUS in grade 10. For the most part, she has enjoyed her three years 
at the school. One of her favourite memories is going on field trips to Japanese restaurants for lunch. She is very relieved 
knowing that she will never have to endure another fitness test or 2400m run. Outside of school. Joanna spends her time 
tap dancing, cooking and horseback riding. Next year she plans to study science at the University of Victoria and eventually 
hopes to pursue a career in optometry or nutritional science. 



Michelle Lee 



1995-1998 



.Michelle U.J. Lee. the princess of all Koreans arrived at SMUS with "AA" in grade 10. When she joined Winslow with the 

look of "Gold Boong uh". she loved those "cho mini chima". She remembers when she "ate moon" with NK for letting their 

friend to "VISIT them at night". by Pochacco - Uijin has been "Wong P-Soon ee" to everyone, especially to me. Every 

morning, no one could emulate her sleeping beauty; she was an infamous "Jam soon ee" who was the most frequent 

customer to SMUS Infirmary:) I will miss her disguised voice which echoed like a baby's squealing voice and lots more! 

by Chulee - (Nugoori)Here are Yeppuni Konjunim's last words: Lots of love to all mv friends who made my life a fantastic

athletic prowess was quite evident as he beat his roommate in basketball almost every night. He also enjoyed cross-country, 

badminton and ragby. Alan would often spontaniously go for a run for not particular reason, his roommates often thought 

he'd gone mad. He also enjoyed staying up all hours of the night playing games against his roommate, which he set a new 

win-loss record of 1-62. Known as uncle to many of the boarding students. Alan was destined to be a prefect. Along with his 

fellow countryman Lance W (father). Alfred W (geeky), and American import Dave they controlled third floor of Bolton

Kimberley Lobb 



1986 - 1998 



Long ago Kim entered a land called SMU filled with care bears. After the 5 years of junior school and the 3 years of middle 
school Kim entered senior school ready to leave her mark. Kim spent most of her time on the hardwood, hockey pitch and 
with her friends. To all my friends, thank you for making SMU such a wonderful adventure. To the basketball and field 
hockey girls, thanks for the memories, I love you. To my teachers, thank you for caring. TC thanks for the fun and the

David Lynch 



1986 - 1998 



I've spent the last six years at SMU dreaming about graduating, but now that this chapter in my life is suddenly 

coming to a close, I'm getting all nostalgic. I came to SMU in Grade 6. a small, shy and quiet guy from public school. The 

competitiveness was unbelievable remember RA's 99%? - but 1 ended fitting in pretty well. The Mid. School was great 

DMB's class- X&Y - Spare me Man! - U- 13 was awesome Aids & Zacks. HyperCard kings, eh Capt? On to the Senior 

School and growing up... The Pres, Bad Trumpeters, Fr. Tutors, and Leadership (Gooo Baack Leopold!). Grade 12 has been 

the best year ever - Buicks. Movie Nights & Car Rallies, Rugby was fun, roaring "Deeeewwwar", though I never could catch 

- I got AL once though! Sr. Soccer with PL & Mr Nash was awesome - CP Jokes & Mavrikos' resurrection?!. Thanks to all 

the teachers, especially KR. AMcK. AJ. KM, BK, PM. DrM and DMB - your inspiration and energy is the heart of the school. 

To my close friends. JR.AD.JZ.MC.Jenny F.Mr Smith. Wonger, and of course the future hockey star/announcer Cap't Kirk - 

thanks for all the memories and for generally putting up with me and my historical anecdotes, bad jokes and cynical 

judgements. To those of you who know where you're headed, good luck! - 1 hope you get there- and to the rest of us, cheer 

up! - isn't all the fun going to be in the finding out, anyway? 





Rachel Magnusson 1996 - 1998 

OiiLC or IwiLt' upon a tinif, in the days ol thick torests ol leg haii . there were tivu nutty wateispints belly (Jancint) on a traffic 
median. They believed that A & C was "Gnarly" and they slept on a stinky beach where they were mistaken for human 
caterpillars. What the ... Ohmigaad! 1 had "a moment" with the baby-blue-checkered-shirt-twin, the one without shiny ear 
lobes. Excusa me? Who touched my bum? Chiseled 44. or was it that Empress teddy bear while I was getting my 10 cents 
haircut with garden sheers. Tocatocatoca, as much an apple doth an oyster! Just remember, Shtuff does Shtuff to other 
Shtuff. partying it up outside the Tuck Shop, peeing, and dancing with pool noodles. Girly, keep up those hardskills. Never 
lick cheeks, not even of pre-teen vampires. TREE. Here's to my supergenlus twin! Pro-rowdy, with green fingers and 
warts. Sis, you're the best. Who is older you or me?. Kindred Spirits. I will always love Rufus, Garfield, and Odee. Suck it 
up buttercup! "I tell it wet" for nightswimming, biking with fugitives, shadow dancers, hefalumps, and poetry. Podgy! All 
footling aside. I love you and I'll miss you. 



Jonathan McLean 



1997 - 1998 



I would first like to thank God for where I am today. Thanks Mom and Dad for wiping the applesauce off of my chin to 

giving me the opportunity to excel in life. To all of my brothers; Joel for being a Monk, Josh for being a Buddhist, Jordan for 

doing that annoying whistle thing, and Jake & Jonah for doing the bubumba and the sexy... oh I can't write that. To Chris, 

hey man you'll graduate some day, don't worry, be happy. Roger, you are and always will be, the hopscotch master. Baker 

keep on baking kid! Ta ma bredrins Peeks, Dinan, Ebanks and Haroo ya na hafa worry yo boy'll be eatin red snappa soon 

zeen! Ta Lee, Justin, and Roberts Jamaica will be crisp still. Ta all da sessions and skets still ta cum. I would like to thank all 

the little people who made this event possible. Ta rna bredrins the Appleton family. Mr. Daniels, good ole Don, Mr. So-co. 

Senior Corona, Mr. B&H. and that guy off the Mento's commercial. But above all 1 would like to thank me. Cuz without me. 

none of would of happened. With one steepin stone down still plenty to go. One small step for mankind, one giant leap... 1 

have a Dream. Brace yo self fool cue' this boy's gonna blow this popsicle stand 





Emir Mehinagic 



1993 - 1998 



Fust of all I would like to thank my parents for sending me to this country. 1 would also like to thank my cousins for 
having me here and supporting me through all these years. My gratitude goes out to all of the teachers who helped me 
along the way. Shout outs to all the doggs, fiends and the B-Timers (you know who are). See y'all later and just maybe 
one day you'll see me rollin' in a drop top Z-28, 



Nathan Millar 



1995 - 1998 



Upon crossing the Straight of Georgia and entering the confines of SMU, Nate saw an opportunity to push himself all the 

lime and make the world a better place. Unfortunately, he wasn't completely successful. During his three years of boarding 

bliss he lived in both Symons (girls on top') and Bolton, where he became co-head-of-house with his roommate Sher 

Khan. While blessing all those who knew him with his charm and great sense of humour, he amazed others with his incredible 

athletic prowess. Hordes came from miles around to watch him procrastinate. Besides being a top scholar, his peers regarded 

him as a leader (something he was never cut out to be) and demi-god.You may askYou see, this was only his outward 

appearance — in reality he was capable of violent outbreaks from the smallest amounts of aggravation, as he terrorized room 

218 at will. He had multiple personalities including Gavrilo Princip, and could be found up at all hours of the morning 

practising the line art of sniping. His true loves of sleeping (although he never got enough) and the outdoors surpass all 

others. While frequently being called Nature Nate, and Nature Boy (much to his dismay), he endured such taunts silently, 

holding in his witty retorts, Nate plans to pursue a career in engineering at Queens university after participating in an 

exchange to Ecuador : ) 





Mariko Miller 



1986 - 1998 



1 i^oii 1 overflow my space describing the endless memories 1 have had here, but through all the good times and all the had 
times, I've met some pretty amazing people. To all my dear friends- thank you. lor putting up with me. My memories here 
will last forever... Cara, Sheryl- there's always another mission. Bum- you're right about that sunset Danny H- thanx for 
always listenin' and Martine and Amanda- 1 love you guys so much! To everyone who has made me smile through the 
toughest times, thank you, a smile is worth a thousand words. I'll miss you all... bye. 



Anup Misra 



1989-1998 



I joined the school in grade 4 and have enjoyed my eight years at SMU. I have survived the Junior School, 2 Middle Schools 

and the Senior School. 1 want to thank all the people that made my time here the best that it could be. Especially. 1 must 

thank my parents for putting up with me. Some messages to a few people, CK do you have a license yet? RS Would you 

like a beverage with your orange peel? PB Colouring in calc class, yodeling in the concert AD NM 102 picoFarads, just 

don't hit the roof . Against all odds. 





Courtenay Mitchell 1994-1998 



Wow. Looking back on my four years at SMUS. 1 can t believe that I'm finally graduating! Ive accomplished more than I 
ever planned to here, but looking back on it now, it seems that some of my most valuable times came when 1 least expected 
them to. So. to all of my friends who helped me "waste " my time in high school, 1 wish you the absolute best. Some 
moments that 1 definitely want to remember: Galapagos!!!(3a.m. wake up call, swimming with the sea lions and the shark, 
touching the sting ray...), ski trips, rock climbing, sinking the quad, blockbuster boy,U2,Joffre Range, make-up at the 
musicals, never-ending rehearsals for the plays, slurpees and subways, "meet you at the garbage can", lunchtime escapes 
from school, Timmis hysteria, building the snowman, Chixdiggit from the parking lot. finding "love" at John's Place (ha!), 
and all those other times that hopefully I'll remember later. I've had some amazing times and made some great friends, but I 
think we're all ready for something new now. Or at least I am. And if so much can happen in a small place like SMUS, it's 
crazy to think of what lies ahead. So, my only real plan for now is to let curiosity lead me anywhere where there's sun, blue 
sky and lots of laughs. Hopefully, I'll meet you there. 



Ryan Munroe 



1993-1998 



It has been 5 long years but now 1 am off to bigger and better things, I don't think I could of made it without the many high 

times with my good buds Emir. Bryce, both Vic's, George and Adam. During my time as a S.M.U. dog there are certain 

memories I don't think I'll ever forget: my first time on the rugby field, E.M. dancing to "smack my Bruce up," and the 

hundreds of trips to the park with V.D., A H., and N.V. A little of advice to V.C., you gotta stay on your feet it can get you 

in trouble and V.D. try to learn to keep it hung in those situations. B.S. never forget our times with Dave, Larry and 

especially the lung. Oh, and you know 1 will always be able to beat you. A.H. I still can't stop thinking about that trip to 

Subway, and V.D. that drive to sodafest was crazy but I wanna do it again. The B.C.'s for soccer were dope but ILL., J. P., 

and J.F. lets try not to drink on a reserve again. Car rallies and all the parties were awesome. Thanx for all the memories, 

my time spent here went by too god damn fast and I wish I could have got to know more of you. A special thank you to my 

Mom and Dad for helping me get through the impossible such as passing that Biology course. Everyone, have lots of fun in 

your new life and try to make the best out of what you got. See ya later GRAD CLASS of 98!

Jason Ng 



1994 - 1998 



Only person he knew was his cousin P.Chau thought to be an evil clone of him (no resemblance). But Jason Ng did indeed 
get to know some others. He would sit around quietly and be completely unassuming, but wants to destroy the world, hears 
voices in his head, and watches his back suspicously. He falls asleep in class often too. 

He spends most of his breaks hanging out with D. Lynch, M.Cassidy, J.Franklin, M.Boulton, C.Smith, P,Bedeski, C.Kirk, 
S.Wong, R. Sultan, A.Mishra, and J.Lee, who really don't have much to do with him anyways. 

In his grade 12 year Jason took. Computer Programming (does anyone do anything at all?). Art (everyone is anorexic), 
Calc AB (one of the only ones left). Physics (Clyde does not do the work), Japanese (remember Chi Sai-san from last year) 
and English. Well if he doesn't destroy the world he'll probably take up computer programing when he goes to university. 

Remember the Ng is evil, he leads the legions of hell, someone has too much blood in their caffeine system, David Lynch 
didn't do Twin Peaks, Hail General Wong, They're all against you, everywhere, behind you. Everyone will be rated and 
marked. 



Christopher Noel 1992 - 1998 



Chris joined the schm il back in grade 7 as a fat red haired kid where he sat back in bottom set. He has made many friends 

over his years at the school. Thanks to all the b-ball and soccer boys for some great road trips. To the rugby boys you

Sam Paulos 



1986 - 1998 



1 bt'un in a daze. Almost 12 vears G S. had us doing some weird #'y'!% when we were kids Missed grade sev or was it eight? 
Confusing story that 1 have to recount way to often to way too stupid people. Good times though. For all you kids out there, don't 
worry it only gets better. The legendary third term of grade 9 changed us for good. Summer with N.D.,C.N.,R,K, was cool. Things 
running in the water, holograms, weird raps, burnt hair, Kareem and the five stages before you die. Then later we started attracting 
some really weird people everywhere we went. The new moon guy, the alcove guy, the beached whale, santa in a bottle to name 
just a few. What's up with that. 1 don't think we'll ever figure it out A.W. but you once hypothesized that it had to do with B.L. 
and that's the best explanation to date. I know I'll be going to Whistler without A.J. and probably R.K. so here's to great times 
and great friends. See you on the slopes. I'm sorry that only a couple of us can live the dream. Hopefully our paths will cross again. 
The future is very uncertain. Crack boy and Young B!-i-ch, good luck, he'll give you a war and I know you want one. Peace to 
my boys. We will get by, we will survive, and we will do much, much more. Thanks, Sam. 



George Pemberton 1993 - 1998 



This IS how I spent my five years at SMU; 

Festivals at A.D.'s and B. S.'s, - J.T. when are we going to have that competition? Baxter the dogg could beat you. 

Thursday nights after rugby with E.M.. What the hell was happening at Windsor that night V.C.? SMU dances, cops playing 

mind games, V.D. on Oak Bay Ave. what about my door? G.B. no more than you already are; let's go. You and the stool 

not J.T.. R.M. and B. S. causing havoc with neighbors. At least I don't go to white trash Belmont! T. S. and late trips to 

Petro. It wasn't a spit! Sure. E.M. and B.B.B. while R.M. is going for the posts. E.M. going to celebrate? C. P. and V.D, 

with their competitions. But V.D. is still *1. T.S., R.K. and I rally driving in the wood. Is that another 4-Runner? Duke 

with A.W., Karl sucks, A,W, your hat was on sideways. Sick of Whitespot after winning the provincials. V.C. with the 

looney tunes blackout. That's twice now. when's the third? The touchdown finished me. No neck Joe. and Southpark, 

during Spike and Mike's. R.L. you wasted that shaving cream but the morning made up for it. To evervone that wasn't 

mentioned picture me rollin in my 86 Vette and R.K.: keep going hard.

Finally, a chance to say everything I've been keeping pent up over my entire school career, without fear of embarrassment or 

reprisals! um ah oh well. It's been six long years since I escaped from my fourth-rate Elementary School, 

and during my time at this school I've experienced more joy, pain, fear and loathing, excitement and satisfaction than in a 

lifetime of summer vacations. Thanks to all my friends, and. well, everybody. I'll remember you long after I've forgotten 

everything else. I guess all that's left is to offer some inspirational quotations. Philip K. Dick, gonzo sci-fi writer; "Reality is 

that which when you stop believing in it, it doesn't go away." Robyn Hitchcock, my musical hero; "Underneath our civilized 

glazing, we are all peculiar and we are all alone," and "Heaven and Hell are life, the rest is silence." To Grad '98. whip it up!

studying. Susan is always in the mood for fun. She spent her first year making loads of friends and gossiping. In Gr. 1 1 . she absorbed 
herself in chatlines and the cyberworld. In the Grad year, she became a prefect of Winslow and had increased her determination 
t'.i get good grades (Really???!!) Nevertheless, her love life was very fulfilling: The artist and dancer Lwei in Gr. 10; The fast fling 

HIee in Gr. 11 (1 hope 1 will get another fever!) and The "curry chicken"" sucker Esam in Gr. 12 (Oh mi gosh !!). Apart from

Bryce Soderberg 1994 - 1998 



1 came to SMU as a minor niner. from beyond the far wastelands of the Sooke hills. Not knowing anything about rugby, boarding, 
or education. 1 spent my first month hanging out with Dowhy. listening to random Anthrax and Pantara tapes. Yes. 1 was a jovie. 
I was finally was brought to the attention of RM.GP. TS.EM.VC.VD-which was cool, because they taught me how to make fun 
of AS. sing about splishey cream, and sing about diets. Grade 9 also brought me to the first Dowhyfest: Starwars! 1 also met RB. 
(Good party). Grade 9 & 10 also had my park buddies. 1 got my Diesel. which drives better on the course than on the road. (And 
the 50 dollar airplane) Grade 1 1 consisted of CN.Thanx for blaying ball. GB. Pipe down. Pipe down. State, mug down, mug down.

to the B-ball team, and thanx to my parents and anyone I forgot. Remember, Praise the funk. It's been a slice... 



Christopher Sortland 1997 - 1998 



The journey's been strenuous and full of great new experiences. Everyone chipped in some way or another this year or 

previously to cheer me up when I was down and share the joy when my fortunes reign. Make like a duck... look cool on the 

surface, and paddle like crazy underneath. Words of wisdom from a kind and loving mother. Thanks dad for the long and 

torturing speeches about thinking long-term goals and keeping all those "doors " open. I guess you really were right after all. 

Then there were all of the fun times apart from school. Summers of partying, enjoying Dan's "A Wink and a Smile " side 

show or Rob and Dan's Shambala dance. Winters of pollution in Santiago, but it was all worth it guys! Eddy, you sure do 

know how to get down and boogie. Peter: Paddla din fjord bar det ar varmt. din lilla skit. The Yergen in the Bjergen Fjord. 

ja? And how can 1 forget the wonderful place where butts fill the ground, stumps are plentiful, and people get jiggy wid it. 1 

guess you'll only get that one if you've been there. Watch out for the Frat!! Thanks for all of the great laughs guys: Jon-Jon 

(what a batchi 
boy) Cream Puff (have fun next year!), Roger (Roga Woo where are you?). Amen. One year attendance at SMUS. I'm a 

Toys R Us Kid.

I came to SMU 4 short years ago from Winterpeg and I can honestly say that life hasn't been the same since. I have been 

challenged in innumerable ways and have also met some pretty terrific people. I am certain that the solid education base thai 

I acquired at SMU will help me to achieve my goals. I wish everyone the best of luck in their future endeavors, but would like 

to say a few parting words to Dave, Anup, and Craig:-David, que fais-tu?-Anup. Craig is looking for his football.... do YOU 

know where it is????-Craig, your dream of becoming a truck driver cannot materialize until you get your license, but your 

desire to be AREA's next "Dancing Queen" is a DEFINITE possibility!!!! 





David Summers 



1996 - 1998 



"HtF 'Wf 






Dave(Virginia boy,yank) came to SMU in grade 1 1 from the cold arctic weather of Ottawa. He found this new environment very 
weird at firstfCheck in. Lights out, Roommate??), but eventually settled in. The first couple of weeks with his new roommate were 
spent in silence eventually became friends with Ji-Ho. They later enjoyed eating pizza, chicken wings, homemade cookies and 
playing loud music, much to the dismay of the rest of the campus. This eventually lead to loss of sleep (which he really needed). 
In fiis second year he became a prefect in Bolton House. HThey were always up late playing games, not studying!!!. He enjoyed 
beating his roommate, Alan (big Hickie. Little Piggy), in basketball on a regular basis. Also in his second year he played soccer 
and enjoyed watching the team play from the sideline. Dave had turned into Mr. Rental as boarders would come to borrow CD's 
and movies, (but not returning them) and sometimes his TV and VCR. Dave at 2am could also be found downtown with his friends 
without ID. going to 7-1 1 without shoes and not realizing it, and looking for the snow in June . Dave also found many things about 
boarding difficult, especially the nightly 2 hours of prep (which he never did) and waking up. Tutorial became a difficult concept 
Dave would like to thank all of his friends and especially his roommates for 2 good years... bye-bye

Chantelle Tearoe 



1989 - 1998 



Well guys, we finally made it to our last year. How do ya like it so far? Just think, when 1 came to this school in Grade 4. 

1 probably didn't even know Grade 12 existed. However, 1 grew up and reality set in. Did it ever! Memories range from the 

sporting events: Toronto soccer trips. Field Hockey - rookying - " scuse me but do you got any shampoo " and 

"mush mush...", to Out-trips: Garibaldi - just me and the guys, Juan de Fuca - " Ohhh sh@*&"t ", "clank, clank, clank'', 

"up, down , over, up " And finally to the social end of it: " she's huuuuuuge", cast parties, truth or dare, "toblerone", 

russian speaking/mumbling Lisa, Grad pranks that never worked and much much more. Good luck to you guys in whatever 

you do. See ya around.

1997 - 1998 



Chris Tse 



1995 - 1998 



Chris, who insists to be called "Christopher", started his life at SMU in Gr.lO. His greatest accomplishments in Gr.lO art- 

probably writing romantic stories and inventing "sky story" with his fellows. He can never forget how he earned the name 

"Superman!" (yet was challenged by AW in Gr. 12)! Gr.ll is a hard-working year. Soon after school has started, he adopted 

a pet and trained it (which results in a great success). SAT came to his mind, books overflowed his shelf, and vocabularies 

poured from his mouth. Gr.l2 is the COOLEST!! His badminton destiny finally ended with an A team position (which GC 

really jealous). His applications would yet be a success. Chris' life is filled with music - from school choir to Alumni to Prima 

to BC level; his magnificent voice displayed through the duet with AW in the spring concert. Rooming with Cozi for 2 years, 

Chris has frequent "conferences" with him about CK and RL. Since he missed the Tolmie night in Gr.ll, he decides to 

activate his "sneak-out" mode in G.12. Also, you can always find him in the "BCL" with VL and JL! For all these sweel 

memories, he would like to thank all who have contributed to his happiness in life in SMU 





David Tseng 



1995 - 1998 



ART, ART, ART - ARTitecture (who cares about the spelling), ARTfuIness, ARTificial organ (you know what it means), - 
these three fundamentals together characterizes the great artist- David Tseng (pronounces "David - JIAN") 
This unfortunate born-in-Taiwan Japanese proved to be very artistic. Since Gr.lO, from the Barnacle Caricatures to "The 
English Patient" to "Fifth Element" to "Titanic", he has contributed to the school fine art in every way. (The products have 
become more and more commercialized). He also likes to change his hairstyle every day, but whenever someone tries to 
compliment him, they get a cold reply "I know." 

He is more than just an artist is though. He uses his artistic talent in badminton court and on his guitar - his two 
other talents often eclipsed by his art achievements. 

Moreover, he is often the catalyst of other people's love affair - as he always calls himself (with unbending pride) 
the love generator. (Remember, catalyst does not react by itself...) 
Finally, please stop looking at his pants... but not his paints. 



Grace Tseng 



1995 -1998 



Grace came to SMUS when she was in grade 10. She enjoyed the life and people in SMUS, but she still complained about 

"Victoria" is too boring. However, she will not forget all her friends from SMUS, Sugi, Nancy, Eun-Yung, Ji-Ho, Daniel. 

Charles, Steven, David, Alan (big and small), Jenny, Judy, and Eddie. She is happy \that she finally graduated

Christine Wenman 1986 - 1998 



Twelve years of SMUS: Despite a curious tendency to walk into hard objects, trip over small obstacles, and lose anything 
and everything I touch. I've actually made it!! Luckily, I've had L.W. and E.H. who understand my troubles through their own 
experiences. Life at SMUS has been packed with memories beginning with carebears and hopscotch. Senior school brought 
endless Slurpees, movie nights, tea at Mt. Tolmie, garden shears, hose nozzles, midnight swimming, Denny's, crashing toga 
parties, live soaps, swings, paper airplanes. Fieldhockey: winning BCs, Halloween, dollar store costumes, (K.L. what 
happened to the candy?), dancing on Robson. rookying - football butts, mush, mush etc. Penticton: dead animals, magic 
water bottles. W.C.T.: "Too many '*"! boxes. Lion King, Rico! Juan De Fuca: Moonshine Jeff, River Mouth Mike (Ahh the 
smell!) Galapagos!!: Paradise! E.H, -111 get lost with you any day. L.W.- memories of the last night, our cabin (yikes), 1 lika the 
lichen, I lova the lava, my devoted cells, broken records, Confucious the mule. Joffre: stuck in snow, Fisherwoman, 
helicopter. Now that "I've got my cap'n gown'n everything, " its time to say goodbye. Despite 12 great years full of 
memories at SMUS, I'm very exited about the future and its endless possibilities. My love and thanks to all my teachers, 
family and friends who made it possible! "The heart has its reasons that the mind cannot know." - Blaise Pascal 



Andrew Williamson 



1990 - 1998 



St. Michaels University School. Ahhhh!!!! What a wonderful, wonderful school. The most important lessons to be learned at 

this fine academic institution are not taught by the teachers but are learned upon school trips or in grad events. As one of 

my refined associates demonstrated to me: if you are in trouble with the law you simply have to say "It wasn't me it was that 

tall guy who looked like the devil" or "Don't worry about it, I'm doing community service " and power lines and coffee tables 

through windows will be 

all forgotten about.

Leah Winters 



1993 - 1998 



She hath pith and she came to SMU in grade 8. Leah, known to few as Liesl, enjoyed being a part of the SMU community 
for 5 scintillating years and is looking forward to the 10 year reunion. Being an insrtumental young lady, Leah's social life 
was often impeded by her commitment to the viola. However, she did manage to get out once in a while. For example: the 
Penticton trip, the Joffre Range trip, the Juan de Fuca trip, the Elk Lake trip, the Mt. Washington trip and most importantly, 
the GALAPAGOS TRlP!!!Leah found solace in communing with the tortoises, great creatures who. similarly to herself, 
choose to hide beneath their hoods in awkward situations. Leah's aspirations range from travelling to obsure parts of the 
world to having a husband who plays dead. Although some may notice a spacy-ness to her. this is only a thin veneer 
covering an intelligent, adventurous and thoughtful person. 1 feel priveledged to have known Leah-she is an extraordinary 
person and a good friend. Thank you for bush-whacking in the Himalayas, being shadowy at the Food Forum and advertis- 
ing yourself downtown with me Liesl. You simultaneously provoke the child and the philosopher in me. Friends Forever. 

Love Emily, 





Alfred Wong 



1995 - 1998 



Well finally, Alfred is graduating. Looking back to the 3 years, he will always remember the first day playing bball with the 
five, sky story with the crew and rooming with "stinky" Huang in Gr.lO (although he got a prefect room). In Gr,ll, the 
main highligfit is the defeat and rip-off by the infamous Mak Kun Ting, He also remembers Tolmie nights and his perfect 
English accents by then. In his Grad year, he is conquered again, by himself and had gone through a happy yet painful "2 
weeks" trial. Besides all the studying,,, Alfred spent most of his time walking around while talking-on-the-pfione; procrastinat- 
ing cheers party at night; starting his singing career in his bathroom, working his way up to duet performances, Prima and 
BC Honor choir; and also loving all the "S"(Not to mention the SS,SS,CS,SL or SATs, Stanford...). Lastly, we wish him all 
the best in future. His last words; thanx to LW who put up with him for two years with all his phone calls at night; GC for 
sharing his secrets; VL for being the food provider; CT for singing the duet; JL for all the "moves"; JC for all the "work"- YA 
for the intensive care and SS, GC, KC, SL, EK. AC. DT, AL. CY, SH, NC and of course. SLee for everything!!

Steven Wong 



1993 - 1998 



Attention! General on Deck' After S years of schooling at St. Patrick's I moved over to SMU for my high school years... and 
what a fun time it was! Ive had plenty of activities to keep me busy, foremost being the yearbook which has given me a 
small reputation among this small community. Throughout grade 12 I have learned many a detail, varying from enzyme 
facilitated processes to the Stresa Front to learning how to set deadlines for grads. After grade 12 I will most likely head out 
to Eastern Canada for university, to the land in which winter actually means something. Well, it's hard leaving here but a big 
world is ahead to conquer. But before 1 go. I'd like to thank my family, teachers, and friends for all their support through all 
the years. Good luck to you all and may your future be bright. DISMISSED!

Cosmos Yeh 



1994 - 1998 



... finally he did it. Cosmos - also known as the "donkey" (because they share similar personality) - is popular around the 
boarding community for his unashamed love of singing. With confidence and pride, he sings while sleeping, taking a shower. 

driving a car. running x-country race, doing calculus, writing chemistry test, taking TOEFl any time, any where in Canada. 

If you ever approach him and praise his voice, you would simply get a reply: "don't you know that donkeys can sing 
beautifully?" His singing has also helped pave his way of success: boarding prefect. Prima choir, college essay, attracting girls 
(CK) - these are some of his more important achievements. His glorious moments came on March 11 when he, with 
extraordinarily strong emotion and passion, performed a tremendous duet, "1 Still Believe". After graduation. Cosmos will 
sure believe in "True Love Never Runs Smooth." 



Ryota Yukawa 



1995 - 1998 



What do you think when you hear Ryota Yukawa? 

An immigrant from Japan (Gifuncse) with really funny English speaking 

skills, a crossover with five head fakes and a super-fast double pump 

lay-up through about ten defenders, a guy who burns everybody on 

every test in every subject, a really big head, a senior citizen, a 

Japanese cartoon character who can't stay serious for over three 

seconds at a time. Winslow's fuzzy little animal, a mean set of 

sideburns, a collection of special magazines, typical super Japanese 

technology, clogged toilets with Robert Sin, his favorite "Chinese" 

beer Asahi, a really big a" a genius (?) 





Jonathon Zacks 1991-1998 



Over my last 7 years at SMU, I have learned that school is about 
friendships and memories. Thanks to everyone for the great ones.

Sportsdesk... Year in Review 




Mr. I. Hvde-Lav 




Mrs, J. Tobacco 




Mr. B. Kuklmski 




It was always going to be next to impossible to repeat 
the three BC titles of a year ago, and so it proved. The line 
between champion and challenger was indeed thin, and 
unfortunately, several teams just missed out on the ultimate 
prize. 

Nonetheless, there were many positives to remember, starting 
with the fact that hundreds represented the school in over 15 
sports. The Girls Field Hockey and Basketball squads both 
reached the provincial semifinals, the latter group after an 
improbable late season run. Likewise, the 1st XV just missed 
out on defending as BC AAA champions, but did have the 
satisfaction of capturing the BC Premier Series title. 

With both the New and Old Gyms operating efficiently, 
and with the surface of the playing fields (under the sharp eye 
of Mr. Fraser Loney) continuing to improve, scheduling for 
both PE and Athletics was again much simpler than in past 
years. 

Many kudos must go to a talented group of coaches, 
who once more went well beyond the call of duty to produce 
quality players and teams. Likewise, thanks to all the support 
staff personnel who toiled so unselfishly behind the scenes. 

To the graduates, thank you and best of luck in the 
future. To those returning, aim to continue the high traditions 
set by those who have gone before you.

Badminton 



Badminton at SMUS continues to thrive and grow - almost to the point where 
we struggle to find sufficient court space to accommodate all those students wanting to 
play at either a recreational or competitive level. 

This year we once again played two full teams 
in the Lower Vancouver Island league. The A team 
was composed of the core of last year's girls and a 
virtually new boys' team. We proved to be a very 
strong team and in most cases easily overwhelmed our 
opponents. As undefeated league champions we then 
went on to the Lower Vancouver Island Playoffs to 
earn a place in the Provincial Tournament. We 
qualified comfortably, beating Spectrum in the first 
round 10-1 and then Mount Douglas in the final. As 
usual. Spring Break interrupted our season and three 
weeks later we returned to school only to leave 
immediately for the tournament in Vancouver. Our 
first round match was against Maple Ridge, who went 
on to win the provincials - a beginning and an end for 
us. Fighting the psychological battle of defeat by Maple 
Ridge we battled our way back to an eleventh place 
finish. Not as good a result as we had expected but 
such are the vagaries of tournament play. 

The B team, composed of a mix of senior and junior players competed in the 
league, playing the same teams as the A team. Needless to say they were not a very 
strong team and yet managed to snatch a couple of victories. The experience for these 
younger players is, however, invaluable and forms a key part of the development 
program. 

In addition, the school competed in the Inde- 
pendent Schools Championships in Vancouver. The 
turnout for boys' competition was very disappointing 
with only St. Georges and SMUS competing. St. 
George's narrowly defeated our somewhat depleted 
representative team. In the girls' competition there 
was a good turnout of schools and in the final, SMUS 
defeated a strong Crofton House team to retain the 
trophy. This tournament was played in the true spirit 
of the game - strong competition and yet a very 
pleasant sportsmanlike and friendly atmosphere. 

On the community front SMUS has been a 
strong leader, in conjunction with CCSD and Badmin- 
ton BC in acting as a venue for major competitions 
and in an ongoing program for the development of 
young players. Many young players in the community 
have benefited from this joint venture. 

Many thanks to our team captains this year, Mariko Miller and Nicholas Chng 
for their leadership in all aspects of the game and to Jim Hill who has spent many 
hours coaching both A and B team squads.

With the majority of the 1997 BC Junior 
championship team having graduated to the senior 
ranks, it appeared initially as if this year's squad might 
struggle to remain competitive. That this did not occui 
(far from it) was a tribute to the tenacity of the players 
involved. 

Returnees Josh Lam and Jason Reeve, allied 
with newcomer Rob Danard proved a useful trio, with 
Reeve in particular going on to score a large number 
of points. Dave Weir and Scott Brown became 
effective off guards, while, at forward, Kevin Simon 
and Mike Spicer improved enormously. Off the 
bench. Grade 9s Steve Mitchelmore and Rob Connolly 
displayed numerous neat touches, while the other 
reserves, Ben Acton, Pat Bourke, Andrew Brownlee 
and Richard Wylie also worked hard throughout. 

One of many highlights was successfully 
defending the Police Tournament title (for the seventh 
time in eight years), and battling back from an opening 
round loss in the City tournament to reach the Islands. 
Once in the Islands, fatigue became a factor as some 
late game defensive lapses resulted in a tough three 
point loss to Stelly's in the double elimination game. 

Hopefully, the Grade lOs will find it worth- 
while to compete at the Senior level in the next two 
years, while those returning, in conjunction with some 
talented newcomers, should enjoy a successful 1998-99 
campaign. 

A sincere thanks to all for the players' hard work and 

tremendous support during the tough 

times!! 

Mr. Ted Anderson

With only three returnees, the 
team looked set for a long and difficult 
season in the ultra competitive City 
league. The fact that the two top 
teams, Colquitz and Arbutus, went on 
to reach the provincial Final Four, 
spoke volumes for the level of local 
competition. 

Nonetheless, an influx of tal- 
ented newcomers made light of any 
perceived shortcomings, and the team 
managed to qualify for the City Tourna- 
ment, before bowling out to an athletic 
Claremont squat. Point guard Corrina 
Mick proved to be one of the outstand- 
ing players in Victoria, and fully 
justified her post season move to the 
senior ranks. Also in the backcourt, 
Bree Baker, Carly Somerset and Caitlin 
McKenzie were tenacious defenders, 
while up front. Sarah Turner. Karen 
Dawson. Jen Thompson and Jo 
Fairhust all contributed well, Clea 
Adair. Heather Sortland and Kristen 
McKenzie provided further support, 
while unfortunately. Parish Sawyer was 
badly handicapped by shin splints 
almost the entire year. 

Special thanks to Ms. Roxanne 
Boult. for all her coaching expertise 
and all round support, and to Ms. 
Cathy Mick, who was always available 
to assist as required. 



Good luck to all next 
season.

Though coming off one of the worst campaigns in school history, the return of six 
seniors allied to the bulk of the 1997 BC Junior champion squad gave cause for much 
pre-season hype and expectation. In the end. the team had fulfilled some of its promise, 
though a number of games which could have been won were allowed to slip away. 

Early on. the combination of a tough schedule 
and an indifferent work ethic resulted in a series of a 
close losses. However, a superb 71-70 OT win over 
West HS of Anchorage at Christmas time in Alaska 
was the springboard for better play in the New Year, 
and indeed, in one period, the squad won twenty of 
twenty two games. Best of all. a disappointing 58-52 
league loss to Oak Bay was avenged in the Island 
tournament, while a 76-73 win over a touring Austra- 
lian team in the Port Alberni Tournament was also 
sweet. 

In the Island Championships, eight days of solid 
practice were invaluable in producing the team's best 
performances. Alberni were dispatched with surprising 
ease in the quarterfinals, while a superb team effort 
resulted in a hugely impressive 83-63 victory over 

fancied Cowichan. A 64-58 win over Oak Bay then netted the school a fifth island AAA 

title since 1991. 

Unfortunately, in the EC's, an uninspiring opening round victory over Maple 
Ridge was followed by a twenty point clobbering by provincial #1 and eventual tourna- 
ment champion Richmond. 

Though many combinations were tried, the eventual starting five featured Danny 
Boticki and Mike Wighton at guard, with Steve Tate. Tye Spicer and Jon Gainor up 
front. Off the bench. Cam Clark and Richard Greenwood played many valuable minutes, ^ 
while Nate Millar, Ben Corns. Bryce Soderberg. Chris Noel. Milan Mrdjenovich and 
Steve Romanchuk all contributed significantly at times. 

The 1998-99 team will be much fancied, with many talented players set to 
return. However, improved defence, rebounding, and general toughness will be needed 
for the group to achieve its goals. Press clippings count for nothing once the actual 
game begins!! 

A huge vote of thanks is due Mr. Bill Greenwell, for all his invaluable contribu- 
tions. Further gratitude must be extended to a dedicated group of scorekeepers and 
support staff, not to mention the fans!!

A beginning rush, followed by a mid season swoon, followed by a late 
season burst!! The season was a real rollercoaster ride, as the team, with only two 
returning starters and little experience on the bench, ended up surprising many by 
reaching the BC AAA final Four. 

Point Guard Jo Nash and forward Kim Lobb were the nucleus of a group 
which began the season with thirteen straight wins before losing (for the first of four 
times) to Mt. Douglas just before Christmas break. The successful run was built on hard 
work and unselfish play, qualities which, alas, went missing, much of the immediate 
New Year. As a result, following several decidedly underwhelming performances, the 
team, first at the City Tournament, and then in the Islands, faced numerous "final 
elimination" games. Happily, these were all negotiated successfully, but left the team 
seeded #12 entering the provincials finals. 

At the BC's. the team exploded. Led by Kim Lobb. who was absouletly 
superb in all games en route to 1" Team All Star status, upset wins over Maple Ridge 
and JN Burnett were recorded. This produced a semifinal matchup with #1 ranked 
Salmon Arm, led by the outstanding Erin Gibbons. Playing better than anyone could 
have expected, the team, before some 3.000 spectators at Capilano College, played 
the highly flavored Jewels to an absolute standstill for over three quarters before 
succumbing 
72-59. 

Behind the excellent Lobb and Nash, senior forward Iggy Larsen produced 
many of the "blue collar" performances necessary for 
success. At forward, Grade Us Krystal O'Bryne and 
Kathryn Watson were most often effective, particularly 
the former whose consistent toughness, rebounding 
and defence were crucial. Off the bench, guards 
Donna Lee and Jelena Mrdjenovich were effective 
scrappers and Vania Gamache a very valuable and 
capable swingman. Finally, Kelly Cox, Olivia Ibell, Jen 
Woodland all supported superbly despite receiving 
limited minutes. 

A huge thank you to Aya Larsen. the 
most efficient, capable and good humored manager 
imaginable, and Mr. Scott Carr. who guided the team 
to many wins before work took him away to China in 
early February. 

Always beware of "Assassinettes ". And 
never forget the Spice Girls!!!

Cricket 



Cricket continued its resurgence in popularity at the school, as some 65 students took part in a condensed, six week 
schedule. Matches involving a Girls XI. Junior XI. Senior XI and various "Mid Week League" sides were played. 

A number of fine individual performances were turned in by captain Victor Drohomirecki, Nick Chng, Glen Roberts and 
praham Snowden. However, most pleasing was the improvement shown by the vast majority of players new to the game. 

in the main games of the season, the 1st XI defeated convincingly an Alumni XI. before also taking the scalp of a useful 
staff outfit. Though Snowden Sr was dismissed early by son Graham, the Staff managed 114 runs from 21 overs, and through 
solid bowling tied down the school team through the opening overs. However, a quick 25 from Jacob Griffin, and two towering 
jixes from Nate Millar clinched the game for the students with eleven balls remaining. 

\ special thanks to Mr. Michael Walsh for all his fine coaching and support. 

Best of luck to all next spring.

Cross Country 



-Junior 



Consistency, persistence and determination were three words wiiich nicely 
described this year's Cross Country competitors. Training and racing in rain, sleet, 
and occasional gale force winds made for hardy individuals and some interesting, but 
sometimes less than fashionable clothing selections. 

The school's top results this year were produced by a very hard working 
Junior Girls team, consisting of Lorien Chilton. Clare Hall-Patch. Mary Ellen Glover, 
Emily Mascall. and Lisa Murray. Over three months, they produced a strong score 
to place third in the City standings. 

The last meet of the season, the Island Final, was unfortunately held on the 
first day of the Spring Break. Although the timing of the race reduced the number 
of students able to participate, individual athletes performed exceedingly well. Clare 
Hall-Patch. Mary Ellen Glover. Mike Passmore and Eric Findlay completed the long 
and difficult course, all finishing in the top 15 of a very competitive field. Although i1 
was a long and busy day for the athletes it was an enjoyable trip and a fine finish to 
an excellent term. 

Lots of fun, wet sneakers and empty Oreo boxes were produced over the 
season, and the group's enthusiasm and personal improvement point towards many 
exciting future accomplishments in next year's programs.

- Senior 



This year's team enjoyed a strong season. A 
wide variety of students took part, ranging from 
serious runners to those looking to enhance general 
fitness levels. Many athletes had their first taste of 
taking part on a school team while others had the 
opportunity to seriously race against some of the best 
long distance runners in the province. 

The 1997 City League races were held on a 
wide variety of sites, most of which offered both 
demanding terrain and difficult weather. Strong 
individual performances and team depth resulted in a 
respectable fourth place finish for the girls and boys 
squads. This preparation produced a very competitive 
seventh place finish in the Island Championships, a 
fine accomplishment as the zone is the most competi- 
tive within the province. 



The group showed that hard work and perseverance are two important corner 
stones to improvement and success. Congratulation to all runners and thank-you to all 
volunteers who helped support the team. Good luck to the graduating athletes. To the 
retumees, best wishes on what should be a successful Fall 1998 season.

Field Hockey 



-Junior 



Despite an inauspicious start, due mainly to a small initial turnout and inexperi- 
ence, the team jelled superbly to enjoy a fine season. A third place league finish, 
behind Oak Bay and Central, was then topped by a first place tie in the City Playoff 
competition (with Central). En route, the ISA title was again defended successfully. 

In the gruelling double knockout Island Tournament, a 3-0 defeat to powerful 
Cowichan necessitated a slow slog through the backdoor part of the event. Though 
this was negotiated successfully, fatigue became a factor as again the team met 
Cowichan in the semifinal. A heroic effort fell just short, as Cowichan advanced on 
penalty flicks to the final. 

All the players may take a bow for a series of gritty, determined performances. 
In particular, captains Liz Jawl and Carly Somerset proved inspirational leaders. 

Good luck to those moving to the Senior ranks, and to those who will repre- 
sent the school in Bermuda next spring.

The team enjoyed yet another excellent year. Although less experienced than 
squads of the past, the 19 players displayed tremendous commitment and growth over 
the course of the season. 

Locally, against AA and AAA competition, the team again finished on top. with 
rivals Lambrick Park providing the toughest opposition. Indeed, in the Islands. 
Lambrick. by virtue of a 1-0 win. captured a title which had been SMUS" sole preserve 
for the previous eleven years. 

In the BC AA semifinals, held at UVIC. the team fell 1-0 to KLO in "the game 
of the tournament", before rebounding to capture the bronze medal. This was a terrific 
result, and full credit to all involved for their tenacity and desire.

This year's team was a spirited group who put in some fine performances in 
the Lower Island Cycling League. The Junior team finished fourth out of 18 schools, 
and the Seniors seventh out of 14 schools. 

Genny Burdett and Clare Hall-Patch stood out amongst the girls with Genny 
finishing in second place as a Senior and fifth overall, while Clare finished third in the 
Junior Girls and fourth in the combined Girl's category. 

First year rider Greg Smith, finished a brilliant sixth place overall out of 95 
riders in the very competitive Junior Boys category. This was quite an achievement, as 
some of these Junior Boys were the strongest in Canada. Evan Crawford. Scott 
McBride, and Paul Zakus are up and coming riders to watch out for next season. 
Thanks to Adrian Dawson and Nathan Millar for rounding out the Senior team. 

Once again, while Mr. Jones and Mr. Buckingham were busy running the 
events, Mr. Larry Borgerson did a superb job as team manager at the races.

The team, faced with the 
realisation that Rugby would take away 
four of its five likely starters, was always 
going to face a difficult situation. So it 
proved, as despite reasonably sound 
performances from a group of younger 
players, the team missed out on Island 
qualification and only managed a 4th 
place ISA finish. 

The highlight of the seasou was 
unquestionably the always competitive 
match vs the Staff. Despite very solid 77s 
from Messrs Edgar and Leggatt, the 
school persevered 5 matches to 3.

Someone once labeled rowing as doing the same thing, over and over, over and 
over, and backwards, and furthermore enjoying blistered hands and a lung screaming 
shortage of oxygen. It is also a sport which promotes determination, commitment, 
humility, sportsmanship, focus and teamwork. 

The team, in only its second year, continued to produce good results. With many 
of group racing twelve 2,000 metre events over the course of weekend regattas, develop- 
ment, augmented also by mainland training, was rapid. 



The season was based around three competitions, 
the "Crabfest" (so named for those novices who pull 
"crabs" and then end up "eating" their oars), the aptly 
named "2"'' Reagatta '. and the City Championships. 
All seventeen rowers performed well throughout, and 
with the vast majority returning to school next year, 
the outlook for the future is even brighter. 

Thanks to all who took part for their dedication 
and commitment.

really tested. 

A powerful and athletic pack laid the foundation for success, with props Matt

back row duty. Andrew Moll. Pat Bourke and Andrew Brownlee dominated lineout 
possession, while Mark Shortt, Geoff Homer and Greg Smith were a solid back row.

- 6r. 10 



The 1997 Colts Rugby season was a challenging one for all concerned. Although lacking a little in committed numbers 
;ompared to other years, no fewer than thirty- seven Grade 10 players took the field, as well as an important handful of Grade 9's. 
n all. fifteen games were played by the "A" squad, a further eight by the "B" team, plus an additional game involving a combined 
rade 10 and 11 team against the touring Wade Deacon High School from England. 

The "B" team began the pre-season with a promising early exhibition win over the Grade 9B side. Unfortunately, they found 
he going a little tougher in their hard fought Independent School matched both home and away against St. Georges. Shawnigan 
^ke. and Brentwood College. However, the majority of the side playing in the "A" team victories over local Victoria schools 
spencer and Cedar seemed to renew confidence levels. 

The "A" team began their season with a Greater Victoria league victory over Lansdowne before their first Independent 
khool fixture against St.. Georges. In a close match . the team were unable to turn pressure into points going down 5-12. Follow- 
ng a week of solid practice, the "A" side deserved their well- earned victory over Shawnigan Lake, and continued to show further 
)romise with wins over Claremont and away at Brentwood college. 

The next week saw several Colts players along with some grade ll's in a combined side hosting and playing the visiting Wade 
beacon High School. England. The hosting of such visiting schools is only possible with the help and support of parents, and 1 
hank those involved for making this visit a most pleasant and enjoyable experience for all. The game itself was a most physical and 
dose run affair with SMUS defence and forward play in particular slightly gaining the upper-hand in the muddy conditions. 
The "A" side rounded out their ISA games with a 19-5 win over Brentwood. The Victoria playoffs were next, and despite some 
arly tries, the team struggled against opponents Parkland. Against Oak Bay in the city final. The team could not capitalize on their 
:hances to score, and Oak Bay stretched their lead, with the final score being 10-15. 

The team headed to the Island Tournament, with Brentwood College as the quarter-final opponent, and in a lack-lustre game 
or both sides. Brentwood did enough to come out on top. In the two consolation matches, the Colts soundly defeated both 
arkland and Qualicum to end the season on a positive note. 

Throughout the season much emphasis was placed in team commitment and dedication, as well as fun, skill improvement, 
ncreased fitness levels, and a greater understanding of the game of rugby. In the forwards prop and captain Jon Gordon was a 
ower of strength, whilst the play of hooker Kentaro Guthrie, lock Dave Ingle, transplanted flanker Jack Ho. and number eight 
<^evin Salmon was noteworthy. In the backs, centre Scott McCarten was perhaps the team's most valuable player, whilst mercurial 
ullback Itsuki Hayashi. scrumhalf Dave Weir, and centre/wing Mike Passmore also had their moments. 

Thanks to coaches Mr. Peter Tongue and Mr. Chuck Shergold for their commitment, enthusiasm and knowledge. A special 
hanks to "B" team coach Mr. Nathan Campfield from Australia whose willingness to lend a hand and more than ably guide his 
eam was most appreciated. Thanks also to parents for tremendous support and encouragement. Finally to all players, thank you

Senior Rugby 



The 1998 Senior Rugby season actually began late November '97 in early preparation to defend the provincial title. Intersquad trials soon took place, 
with the teams beginning to take shape, prior to the season finally getting underway in earnest in late February. 

The 2nd XV began their season very strongly, turning in promising displays and resounding victories over Lambrick Park and Esquimalt. The team 
continued its pleasing progress after spring break with further wins over Spectrum. Stelly's and Belmont. However, after a feisty first half effort away at Carson 
Graham, the team could not hold on and suffered a heavy first loss. Next up was Shawnigan Lake, but again, the team struggled to play for the full seventy 
minutes. The 2nd's squad bounced back to round out their season with a convincing victory over Mt. Douglas. Importantly, many opportunities were provided foi 
all players, either in providing much needed practice for 1st XV squad members or in the development of rugby skill and knowledge. Top performers amongst the 
pack were hooker Stephan Chapheau. props Jon Gordon and George Pemberton. locks Matthieu Boyd and Steve Tate, and backrowers Joe Gardener and Omar 
Alasaly. In the backs, midfielders Sam Paulos, Cam Clark. Andrew Williamson, and Scott McCarten. and scrumhalf Jason Owen were consistent performers, with 
flyhalf Jon Preston being top scorer with a total of 63 points. 

The 1st XV squad began their season by venturing up Island to record a solid win over Ladysmith and a closer result against G. P. Vanier. The team 
then met arch-rival Oak Bay for the annual "Boot Game ". with the game ending in a 22-22 draw. Twenty-three players then departed on a 16 day Celtic rugby 
tour, playing in Cardiff. Dublin, Belfast, and Glasgow. Coming home with a promising 2 and 2 record, the team then recorded 25-15 and 25-6 home wins over 
the touring High School of Glasgow (Scotland) and Chichester High School (England). 

Playing again in the BC Premier Series, against Carson Graham, the 1st XV got out to a good start and lead, but fell to a 22-20 defeat. Then, a fifteen 
minute purple-patch in the first half ensured a half-time lead against Shawnigan. However, no second half points and some serious defensive blunders had the 
team hanging on to finish with a 28-27 win. Against Semiahmoo the team started sluggishly, but after a halftime wake-up scored five tries to win comfortably. 

The 1st XV then gave what was undoubtedly the best all-round performance of the season against Lord Byng. From the opening whistle all seemed to 
click into place, with a total of eleven tries being scored for a most resounding victory. Then the league game against Oak Bay (in front of over 1000 spectators 
on SMUS Alumni Day), produced a slightly flattering 32-13 victory. Only five days later, the two sides met again in the City Final. With Oak Bay ahead 13-10 
SMUS mounted its final attack, only to be thwarted on the goalline. 

In the final regular season game, the 1st XV defeated Abbotsford to deservedly win the 1998 BC Premier League title. However, this was something of 
an anticlimax, as everyone looked forward to the defence of the BC Provincial Title. 

Brookswood were the first opponents, with the team having trouble with the wet conditions, though playing steadily throughout to record a 31 -0 win. 
In the quarters vs Abbotsford, the XV scored a 34-12 win and claimed a spot against Shawnigan Lake in the semi-final. 

In this match, the 1 st XV began the second half strongly to tie the game at 15-15, but eventually lost 27-15. Wishing to end the season on a top note, 
the side showed much spirit to come back the next day to defeat Carson Graham and claim the AAA bronze medal. 

Front row men John Andrachuk, Ari Shortt, Andrew Dewar. and co-captain Adam Dowhy. along with locks Steve Romanchuk (selected to the BC AAA 
Schools Commissioner's XV) and Gavin Bari^y. and backrowers Emir Mehinagic. Milan Mrdjenovich. team award recipient Alec Johnston, and BC Premier and 1 
St XV top try scorer Erik Larsen, all had their moments and laid a strong foundation for the team. In the backs, scrumhalf Quentin Bregg. flyhalf. co-captain and 
BC Premier top points scorer Mike Danskin. along uith utility back Chris Noel, centre Tye Spicer, wings Tim Street (the teams top points scorer) and Reid 
Chambers, and fullback Danny Boticki similarly played with much heart and desire. 

In closing, I thank all the players for a most 
enjoyable season where much was learnt about character 
courage, and the game of rugby. To all graduates. I 
thank you for your efforts and commitment to SMUS 
rugby, and wish you the very best in your careers. May 
you also keep involved with the "greatest game in the 
world". To the returnees, take with you into next season 
all that you have learned, along with a fierce resolve to 
meet all challenges head on. To parents, I thank you for 
all your continued support and encouragement through- 
out the season. I also thank fellow coaches Mr. Peter 
Tongue, Mr. Chuck Shergold, and Mr. Ian Hyde-Lay for 
their expert tutelage, assistance, advice, and good 
humour throughout the year.

- Tour 



Three staff coaching members and twenty- three rugby playing teenagers toured the Celtic countries of Wales. Ireland, Northern Ireland, and 
Scotland over spring break' The flight to London Heathrow went smoothly, and following a coach ride, the group arrived a little tired but in good spirits 
late Monday afternoon at the hotel situated across from Hyde park. A lose- the- jetlag run around the park was followed by a very spirited touch rugby 
session. 

A keen early morning practice session got Tuesday off to a good start. We then bused to our first host school, Glantaf. in Cardiff to be wannly 
greeted by and whisked off with our billets. Many of the tour party spent the evening watching the European University Students Cup Final with Toulouse 
University. France defeating the UWIC at the Cardiff Rugby Club ground (next to the site of the 1999 World Cup Final). 

The Wednesday morning was filled with a light team practice session in final preparation for our first tour match later that afternoon. After a trip 
into Cardiff for a little shopping, the tour party returned to Glantaf for the game. The team began perhaps a little gun-shy, allowing the opposition several 
easy tries and a comfortable victory. Nonetheless, there were encouraging signs to some of the play. Special credit on the day was given to lock Steve 
Romanchuk. flyhalf Danny Boticki, and hooker John Andrachuk. 

The squad then met up on the Thursday morning for a light practice taken by former Welsh Youth coach Mr. John Hall- Moore with the 
emphasis on ball skills, communication and focus. The afternoon was spent with a sightseeing tour of the Cardiff area and an escorted tour through Cardiff 
Castle. The resulting trivia quiz for chocolate bars was keenly contested. 

Friday was a long travel day north by bus through the Brecon Beacons into North Wales and on to Holyhead. With pleasing views, a little sleep. 
"Living with the Lions" video, auction items galore, plus Special K's kangaroo court session, the hours passed quickly. A sharp practice was held near the 
ferry terminal before crossing the Irish Sea to Dunlaoghaire and busing into our second hosts at St. Michaels College. Dublin. 

Saturday was Five nations International Rugby day in Dublin with the Irish taking on Wales at Lansdowne Road in the afternoon. The squad had 
its own little battle to fight in the morning against St. Michaels College. Perhaps a little fatigued from the previous day's travel, the team again got off to a 
slowish start before putting some good passages of play together. However, some costly errors resulted in a three try half time deficit. The second half was 
a much more evenly contested affair, with the XV finishing strong before going down 38-19. In many ways the late game efforts was a turning point for the 
tour . Full credit on the day to lock Gavin Barry, wing/flyhalf Tim Street, and number eight Erik Larsen. 

The team met up again mid-morning on the Sunday for a sightseeing tour of the Dublin area Doctor KK was to the rescue with doses of 
Vitamin C and numerous other concoctions to ward off any ills. The afternoon was spent back at Lansdowne Road watching the Leinster Senior High 
School final between eventual winners Clongowes and Terenure College in front of a rousing 15,000 spectators. 

Monday morning's fun practice had the forwards gaining the upper-hand over the backs especially at Gaelic Football. The team then departed 
St. Michaels College late morning for Northern Ireland. With the Dublin trivia quiz, another rugby video, more auction items, a second kangaroo court 
session, and a stop lor lunch en route the trip passed quickly. All players were immediately at ease with the third hosts at Sullivan Upper School. 
Holywood, on the outskirts of Belfast. Northern Ireland. 

Wednesday morning began with a very informative bus tour of the Belfast area, including a trip down the Shankill and Falls Road, the sight of 
much of "The Troubles ". A little shopping was enjoyed by all before heading back for the game under lights against our Sullivan Upper hosts at the 
Holywood Rugby Club. The selected XV played well in the first half into the rain and a strong breeze, managing to hold 'Sullivan to only 3-5 at the half and 
3-8 soon after. Then the squad really hit form, with the forwards in particular going about their business the right way. In the end the team ran out 
comfortable winners 24-8 in a far better performance. Number eight Erik Larsen. scrumhalf Quentin Bregg, and flyhalf Tim Street, along with the whole 
forward pack deserve special mention. A dinner at the clubhouse followed with the SMUS Riverdance rendition being well received. 

On the Friday evening came a wee bit of Scottish Ceilidh Dancing. With an inflax of Glasgow High field hockey girls providing much incentive for 
the boys to get on the floor, the night became a tour highlight. What a sight seeing Coach Spesh and many of the boys in kilts with Alec Johnson being 
awarded the top Dashing White Sergeant of the evening. 

There was plenty of pre-match tension in the air Saturday morning with the teams being piped onto the field. Though down 6-19 at the half, a 
mouth-foaming team talk produced much more intensity and urgency, and a 21-19 scoreline with twenty minutes to go. All players then defended well and 
continued to apply enough pressure to score again late and hold on to win a very entertaining game 30-26 for a good sized crowd that included many past 
players from previous SMUS vs Glasgow matches. Special mention to tour captain and flanker Alec Johnson, fullback Danny Boticki, lock Steve 
Romanchuk. and wing Andrew Williamson. 

In good spirits Sunday morning the party caught the train from Glasgow to London, passing the time sleeping, playing cards, and enjoying the 
sights of the countryside. Monday was spent with many enjoying the tour of London including Picadilly Circus, Big Ben, Whitehall, Downing Street, Horse 
Guards Parade, Trafalgar Square, The Mall, The Houses of Parliament, and finally Buckingham Palace, where we met up with SMUS Canada Under 19 
players Adam Dowhy and Mike Danskin (en route to the World Junior World Cup in France). Of course, there was also time for shopping on Regent and 
Oxford Streets. A final tour dinner gave everyone the opportunity to look back on a memorable past sixteen days. 

Thank you to fellow coaches Peter Tongue and Chuck Shergold for superb coaching, assistance, and many social graces. Also thanks to all 
sponsors for tremendously appreciated financial support. A special thank you to the parents for huge fund-raising efforts and continued encouragement and 
sacrifice. Finally, thank you each and every player for determined play, and for showing so much character both on and off the field, 

Bruce Kuklinski 




Junior Soccer 




Despite fielding a large number of Grade 9 players, the 
team began the season with considerable optimism. Returnees 
Josh Lam. Itsuki Hayashi. Rhys Lewis and Mike Passmore all 
demonstrated considerable athleticism, and indeed, the group 
often dominated matches for large periods of time. 

However, the team's achilles heel was an inability to put 
opponents away, and ever worse, to concede untimely 
goals(often in bunches). As a result, almost unbelievably, this 
resulted in a fifth place Division finish, and no place in the City 
tournament. 

Nonetheless, there were positives from the season. 
Much good soccer was played, and an excellent foundation is 
in place for 1999. 

Best wishes to those moving up to the Senior ranks. 

Thanks to all for their efforts.

The 1998 season was an exciting one for the Junior 
Girls: although the season ended in anticlimax with a 
fourth-place finish in the Island tournament. SMUS histor\ 
was made during the year as the team captured the City 
championship for the first time ever. Coaches Mrs. 
Belli\eau and Mr. Hannah, with the help of manager Mr. 
Belli\ eau and Team Baby Madeleine, were successful in 
molding the diversely talented players together into a 
successful team o\ er the season. 

Utterly irreplaceable through the year was Diana 
Hughes in goal, whose calm assurance and lightning 
reflexes supported the team both psychologically and 
physically. Surely nobody will forget Diana's saving three 
penalty shots in a tiebreaker against Lambrick Park, and 
then stepping forward to score the w inning penalty herself.

Ranged immediately in front of Diana was the 
careful wall of defenders, who played superbly throughout the season to little 
acknowledgement. Liz Jawl demonstrated a solid presence on defense, never allowing 
herself to be pushed off the ball. Kate Barry, too. showed physical strength, and became a 
reliable stalwart at outside defender. Karen Dawson and Heather Sortland were also ready to 
step into the breach at any time, and both demonstrated strong tackling and careful watching 
of the ball. Standout on defense b) end of season was Corinna Mick, who began the year 
almost ignorant of the game but de\ eloped through the season into an intelligent, tactical 
defender, whose excellent athleticism and fitness combined with her game reading to make a 
very useful defender. Jen Thompson began the season on defense also, but missed several 
games with injuries, then reappeared b\ the end of the year as a very dangerous striker. 

Midfield is the essential powerhouse of any soccer team, and the Junior Girls were 
lucky to have strong midfielders for this season. Caitlin Smith showed a very good grasp of 
the flow of play, and de\ eloped her skills admirably through the season, particularly shining 
in the Island tournament. Mary-Ellen Glover, so polite and gentle off the field, was another 
person altogether in midfield. where she was consistent in tackling and chasing her oppo- 
nents — frequently to her own injury I Captain Carley Somerset had a particularly outstand- 
ing season, not only demonstrating excellent skills in midfield. but also pro\ iding the team 
with consistently mature leadership, and re\ealing unheard-of skills at winning coin-tosses. 



The team did not suffer from lack of energy in its strikers: Caitlin McKenzie 
in particular was remarkable for her resemblance to a perpetual motion machine.. 
The versatile Jessa Jennings was always a hard-working, strong striker, and played 
her turn in defense as well on occasion. Striker Bree Baker demonstrated superb 
ball-handling skills and a cunning ability to find the net. Chelsea Richardson was 
also very strong up front, particularly showing good speed on breakaways and a 
dogged persistence in attacking. Most notable on the right wing was Sarah Turner, 
whose last-minute goal to win the City finals was representative of her play all 
season: strong skills to win the ball, excellent speed to pass her opponents, and a 
deadly shot to put it past the goalie and into the net. 

The team can be very proud of its accomplishments this year; the City Champion- 
ship, never before won by SMUS. will remain in the hallwa\ s until next year's team 
has their chance to defend it.

Senior Soccer 



The team, with numerous 
returnees available, exhibited consider- 
able early season promise, and, 
through a combination of skill and 
hard work, moved down all AA 
opposition en route to a 7-0 first half 
league record. Unfortunately, on 
moving up tot he AAA ranks, a degree 
of overconfidence and an indifferent 
attitude resulted in a 1-4-2 record. This 
poor finish necessitated a rather 
fortunate challenge match against 
Highland of Comox for a final position 
tot he BC AA Tournament, an event 
for which qualification would have 
seemed, a month earlier, to be a 
formality. Happily, on a perfect 
November afternoon, the side came 
together well to record a 2-1 win. 

In the AA Provincials, held in 
Nanaimo, the team was seeded 15*, 
and placed in the "Group of Death" 
with Lambrick Park, Westsyde and Pitt 
Meadows. A 2-1 win over archrival 
Lambrick was followed by a 2-2 draw 
with Westsyde. This meant that a win 
against Pitt 
Meadows 
would vault the 
team into the 
tournament 
Final Four. A 
superlative 
effort against 
excellent 
opposition 
produced a 
goalless draw, 
before the 
team suc- 
cumbed 5-4 in the dreaded penalty 
shootout. Results in the final games 
yielded a 7* place overall finish, a 
respectable placing given the madden- 
ingly inconsistent form of the middle of 
the season.

A very successful and impressive 
local season, in which the team finished 
4th in the combined City league, and 
easily captured the City AA champion- 
ship, ended strangely at the BCs, as a 
combination of freak plays and poor 
finishing resulted in a most unsatisfactory 
finish. 

Nevertheless, a lot of good 
soccer was played, and the players 
maintained a 

wonderful attitude and work ethic despite 
the final disappointment. 

Of note were the performances of 
captain and sweeper Kelly Cox. 
midfielder Carol Lewis and striker Joann 
Nash. A special thanks to managers 
Megan Dove and Kelsy Fowler for all 
their hard work and sound organisation. 

Best wishes to all the graduates, 
and good luck to the returnees who 
should form the nucleus of a most 
competitive team.

The team, though featuring a number of returnees, never really fired at any 
time during the season. A combination of erratic play, indifferent attitude and 
improved opposition resulted in a 4* place City finish and then 6='" at the Islands. 

The Girls squad won the majority of matches played, with Mariko Miller and 
Amy Karchut well to the fore. On the Boys side. Grant Woolliams performed 
steadily, with the others all having their moments.

Track & Field 



The 1998 Track and Field season was a tremendous success. Commitment 
in practice and races combined with strong team depth resulted in splendid individual 
and team results. Practices also provided the opportunity for athletes to learn new 
skills and improve their fitness levels while the competitive season promoted further 
refinement and development. 

Immediately following the April holidays the Oak Bay Invitational and the 
Spring Track Series provided some excellent preseason competition. Athletes were 
also able to try new events, gain of valuable experience, and attended several clinics, 
(pole vaulting being very popular with both the boys 
and the girls). 



May featured a multitude of both junior and 
senior competitions. Numerous racing opportunities 
resulted in tremendous improvements as the season 
progressed. Highlights included the individual and 
relay performances of the grade 9 boys team and the 
grade 10 girls squad. 

A number of excellent performances at the 
Senior Island Finals resulted in six runners and jumpers 
qualifying for the prestigious B.C. Championship 
Meet. Those earning Provincial berths included 
Rebecca Sheng (triple jump), Natalie Lisinski (high 
jump), Clare Hall-Patch (1500 steeplechase), and Mary 
Ellen Glover, Natalie Lisinski, Emily Mascall and Sarah 
Turner (4x100). Valuable experience was gained, and 
strong performances given by all those athletes able to 
take part in the meet. 



Congratulations to the participants on this year's team. All should be 
commended for their progress and performances throughout the season.

Led by a strong core of Grade lO's, the group combined depth and experi- 
ence, and solid skills to compete favorably with the strongest teams in the City. 

Early season successes included a quarterfinal appearance in the prestigious 
Police Tourney, and finishing top of Pool A in the first portion of league play. The 
team then gained a solid 3"^ place finish in a highly competitive ISA tournament. 

City league play from mid October through to the end of November was highly 
charged, with every game having a dramatic impact on finishing position. An 
eventual challenge game victory over Esquimalt, in which the team played its best 
volleyball of the year, was the springboard for a final, and best ever 4'^ place finish 
in Victoria- one heartbreaking place shy of the Island Tournament, 



All the girls may be very proud 
of their efforts throughout the year. 
Best wishes to those moving up to 
the Senior ranks. 

Mr. Scott Carr 




- Senior 



Led by an outstanding group of seniors, the team enjoyed an excellent regular 
season, before ending on a disappointing note in the City tournament. There were 
numerous highlights during the year, including a fine 3"* place ISA finish, and first 
ever league successes over Lambrick Park and Mt. Douglas. The squad also reached 
the final of the Lake Cowichan Tournament, and. having finished the local AA 
schedule in second place, appeared set for a good playoff run. 

Unfortunately, an unexpected first round defeat in the City Tournament 
seemed to produce a loss of confidence, and the team was unable to reach the Island 
championships. 

Individually, all players showed steady improvement. Captain Megan Volk 
proved to be one of the top players in Victoria, and was well supported by Kathryn 
Dawson, Liz Aitken. Kanoux Larsen. Kim Emsley-Leik and Vania Gamache. Joelle 
Hatton, Ravina Dhillon and Kim Bruce all displayed a tremendous attitude in a 
reserve role, while manager Megan Dove's work behind the scenes was invaluable. 

Thanks to all who are graduating. Best wishes to all returnees.

Les Yeux Fermes

Les yeux fermes 

Je ne peux rien voir 

tout est penible 

ma vie est une souffrance 

les yeux fermes 

quand je me sens triste 

ils ferment tout 

et je reve des cfioses sympathiques 

les yeux fermes 

tout est evident 

pourquoi vivons-nous 

en ce monde de misere 

les yeux fermes 

nous sommes tous jaloux 

la monnaie nous gouverne 

mais nous sommes pauvres 

les yeux fermes

Sixteen 

- Jen Thompson 

Long thin legs are stapled to swaying hips that support a starving 
tummy. Her small breasts are plastered to bony ribs. Hollow 
cheekbones, red stained lips and heroin eyes look past envious 
giris with a vacant expression. With a determined swing she 
glides across the runway. Hovering for a moment, she stops at 
the end. She squints her eyes to see through the blinding lights 
but finds no reassurance. Turning around she walks back, less 
persuasively now and shoulders a little slumped. Her moment of 
fame is over and another model takes her place. 







- By Liz Jawl 

The wind on the water. 

And the clouds that cross the sky, 

contort 

And transform the reflection of the 

moon. 

A summer breeze warms a secluded 

beach. 

Barren except for a small fire and its 

creator. 

She sits absently gazing at the sky. 

The soft lapping of waves 

And the serenity of her surroundings 

embraces her. 

Draws her away from the turmoil. 

Leaving her alone with her thoughts, 

And her feelings about the significance 

of it all. 

A chill in the air makes her aware 

Of the brilliant moon. 

And shimmering stars 

In this spot. 

Her own piece of heaven.

The Symphony Killers 

- By Matthieu Boyd 

Out of the public school system 

came a whole band of addicts 

high on beauty, high on 

oil and the fumes of gasoline. You say. 

Children love music and 

I guess they do 

"cept these didn't. 

thought Handel was a Nazi like 

Schumann was a racist like Beethoven 

was a German like the soldiers were... 

Maybe they weren't children - 

it's not in the birthday cake, it's 

in the eyes (the age 1 mean): 

skyblue or bloodshot, dusty light of an old soul, 

dead dream 

no sex or way too much 

never sing in public 

whatever. 

These kids never knew symphony. 

Damn good thing; 

violins and cellos are just 

fragility and wood 

even in the hands of Menuhin - 

Someone would tell the jocks 

and the muffins 

that music breaks with a crowbar or a fist 

and hell yeah they'd break the symphonies 

like glass 

Out of the private school system 

came the men with the mission 

and girls with the good thoughts 

the future Harvard grads and. Christjesus. 

the orphans of love. You say, 

// music he the food of love and 

maybe it is 

'cept these days 

love wants a wonderdrug, 

not the bread of the earth or 

the green eggs nnn ham... 

These are the kids you take to the symphony. 

Once they came with chains, now 

with social circles 

and either way, music is tied down 

dead 

Not safe in the hands of the teenage-angst poet 

Not safe in the mouth of the beautiful singer 

Popular Culture's moving 
somewhere else than here 
somewhere beyond the Philharmonic: 
sad, really. 



Stars 
- By C.J. 

They tell me I should start planning my future 

Where I want to go. 

What 1 want to do. 

So I look up into the night sky 

Where the stars are sparkling through the 

clouds 

Each one chanting to me a new and exciting 

tale. 

Drawing me in with wonder and fascination. 

I want to take them all. 

Peel them from the sky 

And swallow them all up. 

So I will radiate a beautiful light 

Never seen before. 

But I know, i know, 

I can't have every star all at once, 

A lifetime isn't nearly long enough 

To grasp all I've ever wanted 

And I have to start somewhere first. 

Take one shimmering star at a time 

Knowing that getting each one will be hard 

work. 

And I must not forget to enjoy reaching for my 

stars 

So that I might shine the great happiness 

Of the stars I have reached 

A thousand times over 

Before my death 

Because a lifetime is too short to have every 

star 

So each one. 

Must feel as good as a million.

A Prayer in the Night 
- Sarah Hudson 

O.K.. 

I just have to tell you this so you don't give up on 

me. 

'Cuz I know sometimes it looks like I'm pushing you 

away, 
but those are the times when I need you the most. 
Those are the times when I'm searching for you in 

me. 
and wishing that I had tried harder to get to know 

you 

so that I'd have you to comfort me in times of loss, 

desperation and anguish. 

But I'm gonna fight to hang on to you, 

because I find an inner peace and fullfillment 

just believing that you have everything figured out 

and that you're doing what's meant to be done. 

I believe that you love me. 

And I believe that my strength and courage comes 

from the faith that you instill in me. 

so that I may eventually be able to put all of my 

faith in you. 

I'm sorry that I can't do that right now. 

This sounds selfish and immature. 

but you've allowed things to hurt me. and people 

close to me. 

and you've taken some very precious people out of 

my reach. 

And why are you letting this world suffer? 

I wish I understood what you were doing. 

I wish we all could figure out what you're trying to 

teach us. 
I hope that one day you'll give me the chance to be 

reunited with those, 
who in my opinion, you stole away from my life too 

soon. 

I also hope that I get a chance to meet you and talk 

to you. 

And I believe that that will happen 

if I let you walk with me through life and pick me up 

when I fall. 
instead of fighting you off because I'm too proud to 

accept your guiding hand. 
So, just know that I'm trying and doing my best in 

life. 
And I hope you understand why I'm hesitant and 

afraid to commit to you. 
It's just that sometimes I get frustrated and angry 

and confused, 

because this is the most complicated relationship 

I've ever been in. 







The Lazy Bear That Was Ostracized By His Peers 
- By Nathan McCartny 

Once upon a time there was a lazy bear, in fact, 
the other animals of the forest often referred to him as 
"Lazy the Welfare Bear". His real name was Malcolm 
Quince Bear IIL but the other animals just called him a 
bum. Wherever he went he was shunned and ostracized 
for his lifestyle. All he wanted was to be accepted by the 
other animals. However, in the cold, dark, prestigious 
French forest of the '90s, caring charitable personality 
and humility didn't count for anything, and the only way 
to be accepted was through social prowess and good 
looks. 

He tried everything to boost his appearance and 
social status: the rolled up sock, long hair, body piercing, 
but it didn't work. He was just lazy, he couldn't help it or 
anything, it was just who he was. One night after 
popping a Prozac he realized that perhaps if he could 
prove to the other animals he was worth something and 
could contribute to society, he would be on easy street. 
And not just the Street of Easy Girls, but the rest of his 
life would be an enjoyable experience. 

One morning the other animals of the forest 
decided to go out to the "Iron Ribbons" and smoke. 
Malcolm stayed home not because he was resisting peer 
pressure but he was just too lazy. So he stayed in bed 
and slept. 

The other animals walked down and sat on the 
iron ribbons. Cosmopolitan Chipmunk passed the cancer 
sticks around and they all puffed away like chimneys. 

"What's that sound?" asked Simone the Snake. 

They all heard a low rumbling in the distance, but 
Margot Marmont insisted that everybody stay where they 
are. The noise got louder but they all assumed every- 
thing was all right. 

WhiZZZ!-WHOOSH!-WHOOSW-WHOOSH!- 
Whizzzz... 

The animals all laid in pieces on the "Iron Rib- 
bons", Struck down by the 11:15 TGV out of Paris at 
300km/h. The only survivor was Malcolm, and he would 
be dead today if he wasn't so Lazy. Malcolm now rules 
the French Forest, and the moral of the story is, "Those 
who are lazy live happily ever after, those who work hard 
are hit by High Speed Trains at 300km/h.

The distinctive flavour of the 1940s was predominant in this year's musical, 
"Guys and Dolls." Under the helm of the director. Mr. Colin Skinner, this witty, 
romantic, and nostalgic show became a roaring success. Taylor Rankin played 
Nathan Detroit, a delinquent yet classy crap game operator, with a soft spot 
for his fiancee. Miss Adelaide (Ali Staseson). 
The musical's romantic leads. Sky 
Masterson (Sam Paulos) and 
Sarah Brown (Cara Yates) 
played, respectively, a slick- 
talking gambler and a strident 
missionary who fall for each 
other in very different ways. 
Other members of the cast 
included: Nick Stipp and Chris 
Smith as two of Nathan's underlings, 
Alex Payne and Liz Aitken as members of 
the mission, and Omar Alasaly as Lieutenant Brannigan 

(now universally famous for his "twitch"). The Chorus included: Jen Angus, John 

Breasail, Tim Gerbrandt, Charlotte Paul, Ashley Amett, Matthieu Boyd, Ryan 

Dacre. Morgan Evans, Vania Gamache. Simon Guy, Susan Hayes, Dixie 

Klaibert,Charlotte Reid, Alyssa Sunderani, Rebecca Taylor, David Beswick, Erick 

Calder. Merlin Ho, David Ingle, Claire Jones, Tiam Korki, Natalie Lisinski,

wonderfully with the music from music conductor Mrs. Donna Will-

making rugby and basketball players appear 
as graceful as ballerinas. (The full 
impact of this transformation on the 
various sports teams has not yet 
been fully determined.) 
Behind the scenes, stage 
manager Megan Volk. her 
assistant Janine Copeland and the 
hard-working 12-member stage crew 
capably organized everything from the 
placement of sewer pipes on stage to making 
sure the microphones were where they were supposed to 
be. Finally, the cast would not be complete without make-up and costume ladies, who 
created costumes and managed to complete the many repairs necessary to keep these 
costumes intact for all three performances. In the words of Taylor Rankin. "If it 
weren't for them, we would be up here |on stage] without any clothes on!" 
Taylor, we hate to think...

The 1997/1998 school year for the senior music department was exciting, challenging, busy and fun filled under the direction of Mr. Don 
MacKay. Ms. Donna William s and Mrs. Mary Humphreys. The classes included: grade 9. 10. 11 and 12 bands, choirs and strings and music 
composition in grades 10. 11. and 12, Also, again this year, cross grade concert band, jazz band and orchestra were held at 7:30 am. We 
thank those parents who diligently got their children to school on time for those rehearsals. 

The choir started off the year performing beautifully under the direction of Mrs. Humphreys at the Thanksgiving Harvest Service. This was 
followed shortly by auditions for the Prima choir, a university group made up of 16 to 25 year olds, 17 students from SMUS and the Alumni 
Singers were selected. 

In November there was the Remembrance Day Service at which the orchestra performed Barbers "Adagio for Strings" featuring the concert 
master Taylor Rankin under the direction of Ms, Williams. We were also again privileged to have Mr. Buckingham play the pipes along with JacI 
Chiu playing "The Last Post" and "Reveille". The choir rounded out the service with a rendition of the Hebrew song. '" Al Shlosha D'Varim" 
featuring soloist Robert Sin. 




This year the senior concert band was invited to perform at an invitational band festival called " 
Playhouse. They had the opportunity to perform with several other fine bands from Victoria.

Our fall concert this year was held at the University Centre Auditorium and featured the bands, orchestras and choirs. Highlights of 
the concert included: a small choir group performing a heartwarming rendition of "Peace I Leave With You" with soloists: Samanthe 
Lee. Angle Lee. Charlotte Paul. Alan Chen. Alfred Ko. Clara McLean. Sam Paulos. Cara Yeates and Robert Sin, This was followed 
by "Sleep Little King" featuring Eun-Young Kim on the flute. Other highlights included a combination string/choir version of 
"Traditions of Christmas" and the jazz band burning on "Milestones". 

The concert was followed by the choirs along with the senior brass ensemble performing at the Carol Service in our Chapel and Mrs 
Humphreys taking her groups out for various performances around Victoria including: the grade 12s singing with the grade 5's at 
the Monterey Centre Chrismas tea. the grade 9-12 choirs performing at various senior's centres, the Parent's Auxillarv Christmas 
bazaar and at the Christmas dinners. 

The grade 1 1 strings class was invited to perform at the Junior School Christmas Bazaar where they played a few selections and 
enjoyed seeing some of their former teachers. Once again the strings accompanied noon hour carol singing outside the senior 
school library during the last few days of school before winter break. These sing-a-longs have become something of a tradition. 

In February, the senior school jazz band under the direction of Mr. Don Mackay and with the assistance of Mary Humphreys was 
invited to participate in the Havana jazz Festival held in Havana. Cuba. A wonderful time was had by everyone. 

Also in February, several of our string, band and choir students were chosen by audition from all over B.C. to participate in the 
Provincial Honour Orchestra, band and Choir which performed splendidly at the British Columbia Music Educator's Conference heic 
in Vancouver, The participants this year were: Choir: Robert Sin. Angie Lee. Alan Chen. Alfred Ko. Alfred Wong, and Christo- 
pher Tse. Concert Band: Steven Wong, and Orchestra: Robyn Parton. Heather Orr. Samantha Lawrence. Kimberly Nordlund. 
Matthieu Boyd. Sarah Wilson. Kendra Tombu. and Brian Moss. These excellent young instrumentalists and choir members are to bs 
congratulated for their fine performances. 

This year's musical. " Guy's and Dolls" opened at the MacPherson playhouse at the end of February and ran for 4 nights. The 
cast, orchestra and crew all worked together to produce a very entertaining show. Of special note was the direction of Mr. Colin 
Skinner, the choreography of Ms. Kim Breiland and the music direction of Ms. Donna Williams. The principal leads were Ali 
Staeseson. Taylor Rankin. Cara Yeates. and Sam Paulos. They, along with the rest of the cast and orchestra are to be commended 
for their fine performance. 



In March. Nancy Telfer. the world renowned choral clinician from Toronto gave two workshops. One for the grade 5"s on some of 
her own compositions and one for the grade 12's on World Music. Also in March the choirs were joined by the grade 3, 4. 5 classes from the 
junior school to perform the annual choral and solos concert in the old gym. 

One of the orchestral highlights of the year was a visit to the Junior School to put on a concert that involved all 108 members of the orchestra. 
It was the first time in over 7 years that the Junior School had the opportunity to hear the Senior School Orchestra in a concert that was 
specifically for them. The orchestra selected a wide range of repertoire from Bach's 6* Brandenburg Concerto (Christopher Smith and Emily 
Thompson were the viola soloists) to selections from Walt Disney's "Aladdin". As always the Junior School was most welcoming and they were c 
wonderfully responsive audience. 

May brought the Alumni Weekend with the alumni and members of the senior choir singing, and the grades 11 and 12 string ensemble playing ir 
chapel for dedication of a stained glass window in memory of Commander Douglas Williams who was a very strong supporter of the arts. Also 
the jazz band performed for the dinner/dance and the strings performed at the Headmasters house for the alumni grads. 

This year our final concert was held at the University Centre Auditorium on May 21" and was a great success with all the students taking music ir 
the school participating. The concert opened with the string orchestra who offered a moving performance of Vaughann Williams "Fantasia on a 
Theme by Thomas Tallis". This was followed by a strong performance by the full orchestra, both under the direction of Ms. Williams. Mrs. 
Humphrey's choirs were again brilliant: the concert bands presented a big sound and the jazz band was exceptional with solos by Ben Naismsith 
on tenor sax. Jack Chiu on trumpet and Samantha Lawrence on trombone. The combo played a burning rendition of Anthropology " in which 
Richard Greenwood on acoustic bass. Jordan Helm on drums and Ashley Wey on piano all played great solos. On May 26"' we had our first evet 
original music string concert and on June 4* our fifth annual "Composers Concert " featuring the works of Mr, MacKay's music composition 
classes. Many of the works were played by computer, however, we also had a jazz quintet and a string quartet along with solos by Taylor Rankir 
and Eric Kim. The efforts of the students were well received and we hope this opportunity continues to present itself every year. 

Many of our students were also involved in music outside of the school programme and demonstrated excellence in many areas with most notably 
Eric Kim who was the winner of the senior strings section for cello at the B.C. Provincial Music Festival in Prince George. 

The final performance of the year was Prize Day in which the premiere performance of Christopher Smith's piece "It's My Stringth" was 
performed by the string orchestra. Chris was also the winner this year of the Blencoe Cup for best all round musician. The Prize Day ceremony 
was wrapped up with a full orchestra rendition of songs from the movie "Titanic". 

Our thanks and best wishes go out to all those grads who have given so unselfishly to our music programme over the years. 

It was yet another busy year for out musicians and we look forward to next year being just as full. 

That's All Folks!

Cuba Tour February 1998 



The Senior School Jazz Band under the direction of Mr. Don MacKay and with the assistance of 
Mary Humphreys was recently invited to participate in the Havana Jazz Festival held in Havana. 
Cuba, in February of this year. The band worked very hard and put together an energetic set of big 
band music which went over extremely well with the Cubans, They were joined by the jazz band 
from Brentwood College and in a spirit of cooperation the two groups played concerts in six days, 
including performances at two provincial art schools where they met some of the most talented 
young musicians in Cuba as well as jazz festival performances at the House of 
Culture and the Press Club in Havana. They were extremely well received and 
were even interviewed for the "Jazz Corner" program on Havana radio. As 
well as experiencing much of the wonderful music of Cuba along with a bit of 
fun in the sun the group received a constant education from our tour guide/ 
translators, of which one had been the translator for Fidel Castro and Che 
Guevarra, 

This tour was an exceptional musical and educational experience for the 
students and was a experience they will remember for a lifetime. The mem- 
bers of the band were: on alto sax: Ashley Wey and Ryan Jennings: on tenor 
sax: Ben Naismith. Taran Chadha and Peter Kim; on Baritone sax: Elizabeth 
Woodward: on trombone: Samantha Lawrence. Brian MacKay, Nick Chng 
and Patrick Lee; on trumpet: Jack Chiu, John Andrachuck and Nick Stipp: on 
guitar: Adam Hutchison; on Bass: Bryce Soderberg; on piano Colin Palmer 
and on the drums: Jordan Helm.

The Student Council has met on a regular 
basis throughout the school year and has tackled a 
wide variety of topics and concerns. Some of 
these have been controversial and have prompted 
forthright discussions and opinions. In the realm 
of academics the range has been widespread, with 
many aspects of the curriculum and its content 
coming under scrutiny. The sex education 
programme, work experience and the school's 
policies on drugs and alcohol were other impor- 
tant topics that were reviewed. 

1 wish to thank the Council members for 
their conscientious approach to their responsibili- 
ties and 1 should like to think that the students as a 
whole will benefit greatly as a result of the 
Council's work.

The week of February 14"' and 15*, 
SMUS hosted the South Vancouver Island 
Commonwealth Student Conference at which 
students from various schools represented fifteen 
Commonwealth countries. They were called on 
to debate come topical and contentious interna- 
tional matters such as the banning of land mines, 
equal rights for women, deforestation and the 
United States led initiative for the proposed 
attack on Iraq. 

Elizabeth Novak and Matthieu Boyd 
represented India and Kim Emsley-Leik and 
David Lynch represented Pakistan. With the 
widely varied values and opinions of fifteen 
diverse countries, the debates were often vigor- 
ous and never less than interesting. 

The end results, apart from a hugely 
enjoyable experience for all, was the face that 
Matthieu received third prize of $50.00 and 
David won first prize of a trip to Ottawa in May 
to attend the National Conference. Our con- 
gratulations to both and our best wishes to David 
for his great adventure in Ottawa. 



Royal Commonwealth Student Conference 

Booklovers Club 



There is no doubt that Thomas Jefferson s maxim 
"I cannot live without books" has been the common thread 
which has drawn the Booklovers in the school together this 
year. Thank you to all members who contributed towards our 
iunchtime meetings and to those students and teachers who 
support the Club but are unable to attend. We know you are 
there! 

Our goals this year were to: read a book and see the 
movie; organize a bookbinding workshop; read around a 
theme; share Internet bookmarks; compile a grand list of 
"What we are Reading"; buy books at Bolens; share favourite 
authors. 

The Booklovers read approximately 150 books this 
year between them. The "What we are Reading" list reflects 
an impressive, interesting and varied taste in reading. Some of 
us read books by pre- 1900 female authors and then had a 
lively discussion on what it would have been like to be a 
woman writer in those days. In November we had a most 
successful afternoon buying books at Bolens. Each of us 
combed a section, selected books and had time to relax at 
Starbucks afterwards. In February we bid farewell to Ms. Greer 
before she set sail for Australia. We have missed her enthusi- 
asm, creative ideas and energy. 

The t-shirts designed by the Boolovers this year are 
once again in popular demand. Thanks to Mrs. Waksel for 
organizing this for the students. 

We have enjoyed a variety of snacks at our 
Iunchtime meetings, culminating in a pre- Xmas dinner at 
Earl's. We say farewell to our Grade 12 Booklovers: Ashley 
Cornwell, Jenny Reed, Megan Cassidy, Jen Franklin and 
Lindsay Basarab. We wish you many happy hours of reading 
in the future and hope that you will continue to 
nurture your passion for books.

This year saw the amalgamation of the 
school's Debate team with the very successful 
Public Speaking program. Ms. Roth and Mr. 
Hannah were nearly overwhelmed by the flow of 
interested students, and many successes ensued 
over the year due to the innate talents of the 
superb speakers who trained with them, 

Megan Volk and Matthieu Boyd proved 
themselves triumphantly skilled at debating, and 
were both very successful as individual Public 
Speakers also. Dixie Klaibert and Ashley Arnett 
were always close behind, never letting Megan and 
Matthieu become too complacent for fear of being 
overtaken. Among the Junior contingent. Alex 
Miller enjoyed modest success in his first year of 
competitive debating, and was supported by a 
variety of talented team-mates, including some 
surprising talent from the Middle School. In Public 
Speaking, newcomers Sarah Hudson and 
Bronwen Bell also enjoyed success. 



Public Speaking 



Debating 



The debating wing of the Club would not 
have been successful at all without the dedication 
of many individual students, who came regulady to 
practice, to after-school debates, and to small 
tournaments, and honed their skills without the 
recognition and rewards given to their more 
competitive compatriots. Next year will see a 
further development of the Club as these and 
other students put their hard-won experience to 
good use in the many competitions and tourna- 
ments facing them.

One of our many topics of discussion this year was a team 
photograph: for the yearbook, and so other students would know 
who the peer counselors are. The cartoon at the top of the page 
tells you how the discussion ended! Other topics that had more 
productive results were in the helping skills of listening, questioning, 
ways we think, personal values, and other elements of awareness. 

We had a short season this year, not getting underway until 
mid-winter and, with busy people, had the usual conflicts of athletics 
and dramatics. In spite of all that the group pulled together because 
of genuine interest in helping others resolve their crises in relation- 
ships, academics, families, feelings of worth, sexuality, substance abuse, and all the other things that add to the roller coaster of life. 

For the first time, the organization of the group was initiated by students, reflecting the school's interest in providing 
opportunities for student leadership. Our thanks go to Rebecca for taking on the task. A priority for the fall of 1998 is to review 
the organization, mandate, and visibility of peer counseling at SMUS. 

Several students used peer counseling hours to fulfill their work experience requirement for CAPP. and others used the 
hours for credit toward their Duke of Edinburgh certificate. 

Graduating peer counselors are: Cara Yeates, Christine Wenman, Jenny Reed, Rachel Magnusson, Kim Lobb, Elaine Lai, 
Roxanne Black, Lindsay Basarab, and Rebecca Anglin. Thank you for your interest, time, and joy of life.

Eradi- 
cating 
the last 
vestiges of 
testosterone 
which may have 
been lingering in the 
hallways, our girls 
tumbled into Symons 
House last September - a 
varied group, some moving 
willingly, some reluctantly, but all 
determines to come together and 
establish some Girl Power. With Miss 
Jean Brodie at the helm, and a set of 
brand new houseparents, the task of 
putting old heads on the 36 sets of 
young shoulders in our care had begun! 

The bus ride around Victoria on the 
first night revealed a kaleidoscope of 
fascinating personalities. Who would 
forget Leah's astrological analyses 
"OOO Dr. Forbes, you have the sun in 
Libra and Scorpio is ascendant! Awe- 
ome! " or the stumbling efforts to correct our Latvian pronunciation before leva's patience ran out: "JUST CALL ME 
EVE !!" Closing the doors to out sister house occasionally allowed us to develop a microcosm of identity, and as the 
weeks went by. we heard the dreaded words, "In Timmis we used to..." less and less. 

Saucy Symons girls excelled at Airband but were less stellar in athletic pursuits, and we wont even mention our 
owly position in the House games competition. The House, perhaps not surprisingly, adopted rather an arty flavour 
and the Halloween Hallway decoration was so effective that some grade 8s were afraid to come out of their rooms. 

Just as we were getting on top of things, we were dealt a stunning blow with the news of Vanessa's illness and her 
subsequent departure for Hong Kong. Ironically, our sadness brought the House together even more and the tears we 
shed for her washed away any remaining differences. We were finally a cohesive unit. The five remaining prefects 
shouldered the extra load, rallied together admirably and life went on. 

Always creative, the Symons gids developed an interesting array of excuses for not being on time for prep, espe- 
cially Aimi, whose ever-changing hair colour was a source of great interest to us all and consumed large portions of her 
prep time while she achieved just the right hue! The beautiful music from Emily's room afforded a sharp contrast to 
the unloveliness of the view within - (did you sleep in the hammock when you couldn't find your bed?) The revolving 
room changes happened so often for a while that even the houseparents couldn't remember who lived where. Alex 
found love from the Goodwill box, as the outfit she put together there had the desired effect on the man of her dreams! 
And who will forget the Korean birthday parties, especially the last one which brought us another much needed fire drill. 
You are a wonderful, zany mixture of personalities - it has been an infinitely rewarding experience caring for you all and 
1 have relished the pangs of mothering every Thursday as you ate the banana bread so lustily. You truly are the creme 
e la creme! 

To our prefects. Renee. Karen. Yvonne and our wonderful co-Heads of House Megan and Michelle - thank you 
for weathering the minor tempests so well and helping us set the House in motion. Good luck and good wishes to all 
ithe graduates, our first grade 12s, who will never have to sign in again! To those houseparents who are leaving us. Sue 
iBelliveau (and of course our favourite Symons girl, baby Madeleine), and Jenn Mickelson. we will miss you very much, 
put you are looking forward to exciting new futures. Thanks. Josephine for all your energy - rest up in the summer as 
the second year of life in Symons House is fast approaching. 



Anna Forbes, 

Senior Houseparent

The 
old 
order 
changeth 
and giveth way 
to new! So it is 
every year in resi- 
dence. In September 
we were led into a new 
order by Messrs. Steve R. 
Gordon, Adam, Lemuel, Peter, 
Helmut, Steve T (a prefect in his 
Harvey House rookie year). For 
their efforts and commitment we 
thank them most sincerely. At this 
time, we also welcomed Mr. Chris 
Martin to the house staff. 

When the year is viewed in 
retrospect it invariably appears like an 
amorphous, relatively uneventful 
period of time, (Distance lends 
enchantment!) However, closer 
scrutiny (thanks to the staff log books) 
reveals all those "forgotten' moments 
which added more than just a dash of spice to our lives: 

"First day back, new boy (Matt Avery), broke his arm falling off a skate board," 

"Adam guarantees a 100% commitment from the house for the Terry Fox Run... and comes through... he's 
very persuasive!" 

September IS'*" - Peter Kim was late for school," ,,, Only 41 to go! 
"Jack Chui needs a new biological clock." 

"Itsuki went at 10:15 p.m, to a birthday party; he returned at 10:45 covered in cream ... he says it's an old 
Japanese custom." 

"Gordon has eventually passed his driving test." 
"John Hung sleeps with his telephone!" 
"Ryan Dacre's fish, over spring break, went to fish heaven." 
"Kaunteya is performing some community service on Mr. Tongue's car." 
"Ka and Joe win the foosball tournament. Ka was very patient." 

"Romanchuk is at his girl friend's house making fairy cakes. It's 10:59 p.m... where is he?... Ah! Here he is 
now!!!" with seconds to spare. 

"Talent night: Jack, Men, Kyung Min, Dan/Chris and Kaunteya were all magnificent." 
Nitya won $23.00 at the Volleyball Scramble... he was very excited." 
"Where's Eric? He's in the computer lab!" 
"Gordon did very well on an equilibrium test following grad!" 
It's now four days since grad: I think Helmut is leaving today!" 
Mr. Rick Johnson, one of the founding fathers of the new Harvey House in 1991 is leaving us. On behalf of all 
Wallbangers past and present, we'd like to take this opportunity to wish him every success in his year in Oregon and 
thank him most sincerely for his commitment and sagacity as "EI Segundo ". 

To the omnipotent Michael Walsh, the rookie assistant, Chris Martin, and our Grade 8 assistant, Mike Ison.... we 
couldn't have done it without you. 

To Mrs. Jones, who proved once again that the way to a man's heart is indeed through his stomach., diolch yn 
fawr! 

^^■^^ Wallbangers, what are you?

After living beside (and two years "on top") the Symons Sassenachs for 
six years, we were reluctant to see our brothers replaced by the Saucy Symons 
sisters. Those six years had shown that testosterone and estrogen in equal 
amounts neutralized each other. Both sexes were more civil, enjoyed each other's 
company, and learned to appreciate each other's differences. Thus, the thought of 
having approximately 80 teenage girls living in one building was rather daunting and we 
weren't sure we would survive the year. However, the house was to have only 37 girls instead 
of 50, and only one new housemum. Ms. Liz Mansfield. Still, reflecting back upon the year, it 
wasn't what we had anticipated; relative tranquillity replaced by nightly crying sessions: one melo- 
drama after another, and never ending exhaustion. Yet really, it wasn't too bad! We did miss the 
company and good humour of the Symons' boys and staff, but we did enjoy our new sisters, access to all 
laundry machines, and the freedom to roam both sides of the building. 

It truly was a great year in Timmis House. The sisterhood that developed though caring, commitment to 
the house and each other, positive attitudes, respect for one another, and pride in our achievements, was the 
best in years. The girls did struggle though their differences from time to time (laundry, phones, and noises late at 
night), but was this was generally a forgiving and tolerant group. The head of house, Kim Emsley-Leik, was greatly 
responsible for this cooperative ambiance. Of course, she was supported by five other wonderful prefects: Courtenay 
Mitchell, Goldie Chan, Ali Staseson, Jamie Chung, and Anna Huang, each of whom brought their own special talents 
and qualities to the job. 

Some highlights of the year included the open double decker bus tour of the city (featuring the ostentatious and 
gaudy characters riding in the back seats!); snowball fights in December: the "Chick ski trip" to Mt. Washington: body 
painting to East Indian music while inhaling incense: a very chilly Easter picnic: rock-n-bowling in wacky clothing to 
great music: waterfights in May and June, and especially our raid on Harvey and Bolton houses that went quite awry. 
Also there were Korean midnight 
moon birthday celebrations, especially 
the one that set off the fire alarm at 
12:40 am!!: 'Yvette's amazing ability 
to play anything on the piano just by 
listening to a song once; puzzle mania 
in the office after prep: Grace's 
encounter with the Challoner wall 
while speeding down the walkway on 
roller blades; numerous occasions on 
which pizza, chicken wings, ice cream 
cakes, frozen yogurt, and scones were 
devoured within minutes; waterslides 
and go-carts: Tally Ho horse and 
carriage tour downtown and an 
evening on the causeway. Naturally 
the best highlights were no doubt the 
many individual and personal mo- 
ments shared with friends that the 
houseparents are completely unaware 
of!! 

I wish everyone leaving, stu- 
dents and staff, much happiness and 
fulfillment in their lives away from 
SMUS, and look forward to another 
fabulous year in Timmis house with 
those returning.

A year in a male residence can be compared to many things, but the analogv, 

that comes to mind late in the final term is an ancient one: the homeward journe\, 

of Odysseus following the destruction of Troy. Far from their families, young men are 

expected to resist the temptations of the Lotus Eaters and the seductive allure of sundn, 

sirens and lonely nymphs; they must summon all the warlike attributes of their forebears tc j- 

do battle on the sports field and yet avoid behaving like swine off it: and. above all. they musi 

avoid offending the gods. 

Of course, not many of them have a wife waiting for them at the end of their journey, nor are theit 

lives often threatened by cannibals; but the risk of foundering is ever present and the Cyclops waits ready 

to shut them up in his cave for the weekend at the mere mention of grape juice. So it is with a collective 

sigh of relief that they reach the end of this year's journey and scramble ashore, a little bedraggled and mightily 

weary, but comforted by the knowledge that they dallied with the Lotus Eaters and. for the most part, rejected 

their blandishments; flirted with the sirens and managed to escape, in some cases intact; wallowed in a manner that 

would have impressed the most discerning swine but. however grudgingly, emerged more or less unsullied. 

Unlike Odysseus's crew, most of them

earned break; it's the balmy shores of Lethe for me.

This has been an outstanding year in Winslow House. With the transi- 
tion to three male and three female residences taking place, it meant that the 
numbers were small - only twenty-seven girls in the House - but everyone made a 
significant contribution to the success of the year. The introduction of the new House 
T-shirt and the 'Winslow Warriors' slogan perhaps summed up well the energy and 
enthusiasm that the girls brought to all situations. A lively group of talented grade ten 
students certainly brought a vibrancy to the place, while a small group of grade elevens dem- 
onstrated well balanced academic, athletic and artistic ability and commitment. The grade 
twelves dedicated to their university entrance did well and managed to find time to have some fun 
along the way. The prefects led by Jackie Wong and Kelly Cox made sure that the House ran 
smoothly and that there was an excellent rapport established by them with everyone. Perhaps the 
highlight of the year was the House dinner, arranged by the prefects, which brought a great deal of excite- 
ment and enjoyment. At the appointed hour, three stretch limousines appeared at the front of the House to 
take the girls dressed in their finery on a magical mystery tour around the coast to an as yet unknown destination 
The cars finally pulled up outside the 
Empress where an evening buffet was 
sumptuously enjoyed. Photographs and 
a stroll along the harbour causeway 
were followed by a hearty sing song on 
the school bus home. This was fol- 
lowed by a sparkling apple juice toast 
and then charades rounded out a 
wonderful evening of adventure and 
entertainment. 

The end of the school year was 
met with some sadness as all three of 
the Assistant Houseparents moved on 
to new and exciting opportunities. Ms. 
Jane Goodbrand begins her teaching 
career in West Vancouver while Ms. Ali 
Hunter does her teaching practicum in 
the Okanagan. A stalwart and popular 
main assistant, Mrs. Sylvia Hamilton, 
has moved to Las Vegas with husband 
Craig's job and their lovely daughter 
Paige. All three fitted in to the House 
perfectly and will be sorely missed. Our 
best wishes go with them. 




Congratulations to all members of the 
House who made this such an enjoy- 
able and productive experience.

Well here we are again at the end of another run of the Barnacle Express 
and as the train pulls into the siding with an extra coach added last September, 
we can look back on some slight delays and some interesting whistle stops, but 
fortunately no derailments. 
At the end of July 1997 there were only twelve passengers left on board, but we 
were soon joined by eleven seasoned Symons trippers, as well as seventeen newcomers. 
Our passengers were indeed multi-national and multi-cultural hailing from Alaska. Alberta, 
Hong Kong. Taiwan, Japan, Thailand. Korea, Grand Cayman, Chile, Indonesia. Saudi and B.C. 
Some of the whistle stops included dinner at The Keg. movie nights, Barnacle Basketball 
nights. Ten Pin Bowling, barbecues on the Us patio and great pizza nights with Winslow girls. Should 
we even mention the stops and starts experienced on the journey? There was some inter-house rivalry, 
which generated "the chicken feet raid": frisbee on the field, in the dark - could you see anything?- night; 
the water -gunning of !!! by ?? at a firedrill- a question of who's that on the roof? etcetera. There were the 
usual houseparent questions: but why didn't you ... ? where did you say you were? ... the American consul had to 
see you? You did what to someone's car? ... and you missed the ferry again? But overall these were minor derail- 
ments and everyone-oops! almost everyone, stayed on the train until June. 

Hot off the press is the final triumph of the Barnacle Express. Yes, you guessed it! We won! We won! We Won! 
Won what? The Inter-house Competition for the first time since 1965. Wasn't it all that influx of Symons passengers, 
you ask? We don't care, we shout. We won! We won! We won! 

A final touch to the year was the Prefect Dinner at The Marina, concluding with a fabulous walk along the breakwa- 
ter where everyone was showered with spray ; a fitting end to a great year. 

As the train begins to slow, our goodbyes and thanks must be accorded to our Grade 12 leadership: Robert Sin, 
Head conductor, ably assisted by Omar Alasaly and the team of Chris Stolarski, Steven Hsu, David Tseng, Jason Lee, 
Chris Tse. Daniel Hong. Cosmos Yeh. Matt Berg. Ryota Yukawa and Alan Chen were effective keeping the express 
running. These were indeed a multi-talented group of guys: actors, computer whizzes, singersi seven prima choir 
members I artists, and mathematicians, not to mention late- night cooks. We congratulate all our other graduating 
passengers: Charles Huang, Ji-Ho Huang, Trevor Freeman, Jim Chantratrip, Chris Sortland, Jon McLean and Roger 
Woo. We say goodbye also to our assistant engineer, Bruce Kuklinski, who had to wait until we won the house games 
to leave and get married. Many thanks. Bruce for helping to keep the train on the track. Also goodbye to Kelly G. whc 
has decided he'd like to jump off the train and spend a little time with his wife. Gail, who has been helping out in 
Timmis House. We may also lose Aaron Clarke at the final stop, to U.B.C. where he will pursue a degree in Physi- 
otherapy. Thanks to Kelly and Aaron and to Dwain who climbed aboard to replace Mr Hannah. 

Well, guys, the train has slowed and is entering Grad station. We wish you all safe journeys on the railroads of life. 
May your trains all reach your planned destinations. As for the rest of you, fellow Barnaclers, we'll see you in Septem- 
ber.

Bits 'bout Boarding 

• The initial number of students calling 
SMUS 'home' are broken down as 
follows: 

Grade 9 - 24 

Grade 10 - 54 

Grade 11 -49 

Grade 12 - 69 

• Even with all the spirit and diverse 
culture of the multitudes of borders, 
most of them still found Victoria pretty 
much boring. 

• Originality was always abundant during 
prep time.
