Board of Governors 


It is a special privilege for me to be asked to add a few words to 
the 1989 edition of the Black, Red and Blue. I say "special" 
because I view the 1989 Graduating Class as special, a class which 
has shown rare academic and creative talent since first coming 
together at the school some years ago. 

And rather than use this space to give you the traditional pithy 
advice on how to "face life", or to remind you again of what great 
luck you've had in attending SMU; let me simply thank you, in- 
dividually and as a group, for what you have done for SMU, for 
your involvement and contributions which have enhanced not only 
our standards but also the climate of the school. 

The Class of '89 splits up and you each go your different ways. 
But you take with you the benefits and the real pride of having 
been pari of the class, qualities which no one and no years can 
ever take away. 

I congratulate you; I wish you continued success and achieve- 
ment; and I wish you all good health to enjoy your life. 

J. David N. Edgar 
Chairman of the Board 



Headmaster's Word 

Mr. Chairman, Honoured Guests, Members of 
the Board, Staff Members, students, parents and 
friends ofS.M.U., I bid you a warm welcome to the 
Senior School Prize Day- 

I mention where you are because that is the place 
I'm supposed to be and there have been days in the 
hurly burly of my novicate when I needed land- 
marks to guide me. What a year of learning it has 
been. John Schaffter said as he was leaving this of- 
fice last year that what a Headmaster must have is a 
thick skin, a lot of luck, and a devoted and patient 
wife — not necessarily in that order. John is correct 
but in my vast, one year's experience I have learned 
that a Headmaster needs a few more attributes too. 
To that list I would add stamina (it's harder to hit a 
constantly moving target), a quick wit (for the ques- 
tions you can 't answer), a steady nerve (when bluff 
fails), political dexterity (to work out who is really 
in power), a capacity for ruthlessness (to prevent 
applicants jumping the waiting list), and a keen 
sense of the absurd (to be able to encourage Rodger 
Bannister and Paul Collis to perform their 50/50 
draw). To be frank, I have learned why dead Head- 
masters are buried thirty-five feet in the ground: 
because deep down they are nice guys. 

Far from feeling even half dead I actually feel in- 
vigorated from the year's experience. What has 
made this one rigorous and thriving are the compo- 
nent parts found in most schools: staff, students, 
parents, supporting groups such as the Parents' Auxiliary and the Board of Governors. Schools cannot function 
without these supporting groups such as the Parents' Auxiliary and the Board of Governors. Schools cannot function 
without these parts; but the operation can be a joy if each part understands the nature of its contributing role. The ap- 
proach of each to the developing embryo, that is the school, must be similar to the advice of Thomas P. Millar gives to 
the parents in their relationship with their children in his text, Tlie Omnipotent Child: give nurturing support and love 
and care, but apply discipline. Millar's text is concerned with parent propensity to throw nurturing and indulgence 
upon a child without the necessary discipline, thus rendering the child incapable of facing unpleasantness, disappoint- 
ment and the daily round without complaining of boredom because the reality lacks excitement of indulgent pleasures. 
A line from Millar's book stands out; it reads: "The route to self-regard runs through the foothills of humility". 

To support another being, one must first be at ease with oneself and to apply discipline one must be self-assured, 
controlled and confident in the task. In the staff, the real engine room of the school, we have a group of people con- 
stantly illustrating care and discipline in their contribution to the school. Students sense these qualities, absorb them, 
and perform in so many outstanding ways as an acceptable expectation. Imagine the ambience of the school if our staff 
did not believe in themselves and were subject to the vagaries of professional doubt. Much is said against them, par- 
ticularly in public opinion. Little wonder then that many teachers, but luckily not ours, suffer from insecurity when 
the general feeling, according to John Rae, ex-Headmaster of Westminister School, "is that there's is the one job in 
society that everyone feels qualified to critize". It is obvious why: "We have all been to school. We know how it's 
done. It didn 't strike us then and it doesn 't strike us now as a job requiring much in the way of experience. It isn 't like 
medicine or law. We wouldn't actually say that any fool could do it, but we think it is largely a question of common 
sense, an amateur business and not even full-time, given the long holidays and short working days ' '. Nothing could be 
farther from the truth when the job is done properly. This inclusion I add, by the way, as a test of our Faculty's 

To the Faculty of this school I can only say continue to contribute as you have and thank you for your dedication, 
strength, skills, selflessness and solid support in the daily round and in the exciting times of achievement. 

As far as the students are concerned, much of what they achieve is linked to the contribution and role of the staff 
and their parents. From the glitter of their achievements over this year many of our students have illustrated a deftness 
in the balance of caring and discipline. It is impossible to win Provincial Championships in boys' cross-country and 
girls' field hockey. Island Championships in basketball and track & field, national ranking in math competitions and 
debating tournaments, special commendation in raising funds for the hungry in Africa and for our contribution to 
the Multiple Sclerosis Fund, scholarships to universities, to produce musicals, orchestras, bands, and all the other 
success' which I merely allude to lest you think I boast, without students understanding comprehensively and caring 
commitment and discipline needed. I am certain you will see these qualities a little later in those who step forward 
for prizes, and those who refuse to stagger even under a burden of book prizes and trophies, and in the students you 
meet after, in the foyer, whose chance for special recognition will come in future years. 

If the balance is right, joy emanates while those students are at school, but probably more important is what they 
carry with them into adulthood to face a rapidly changing world. Technology will have to be confronted by them, but 
their discipline will help them here. What might be absolutely imperative to possess is a complete understanding of the 
act of nurturing. My reasons are simply: if pubescence continues to arrive earlier on the scene and children stay longer 
at home as seems to be the case now with marriages and securing the first job occuring later, then it is not in- 
conceivable to think of parenting, during the time of the children 's children of our students graduating today, being a 
mighty long and intriguing process, particularly if pubescence starts at age seven and children leave home eventually at 
age thirty. Teenage parenting of the 80's will seem like a breeze. Luckily, this grade 12 is brilliant enough to cope with 
most things and they have our complete confidence, particularly in areas of giving and caring. 

To S.M. U. parents whose nurturing and discipline we depend on so much, I am in deep admiration of your support 
of the care and control the school extols. Little can be done at S.M.U. if parents do not, by their own supporting 
roles, back the school in its objective, caring attempt to apply discipline, to say no and to make the students move 
from the well known concentric circles of self to a more confident realm of humility. Your discipline as parents comes 
in the open communication of inquiry you are making before jumping to defend the progene, a most natural reaction, 
of course. Thank Goodness we do not have an adversarial atmosphere where it would be necessary for me to strike 
the following inviduous bargin with parents: "If you do not believe everything your child tells you about school, I 
will not believe everything your child tells me about home", a chilling thought detrimental to any school. 

And so to the Board of Governors. You are probably thinking he really is a novice if he is tampering with the Gods. 
I add the Trustees because here their discipline in their roles and the nurturing they offer affect the school directly 
and intensely. In an age where accountability reigns and everyone is seeking his or her right of input, parents are 
clamouring for more representation on governing bodies of schools in the desire to make the institutions more respon- 
sive to their wishes. This sounds like a fine idea and we have a Board elected from the society of parents and alumni 
here at S.M.U. If Trustees apply the discipline to their roles and practise their functions ostensibly to raise money, 
to set policy and hire and fire the Headmaster - I mention this last point quietly - then all can work well. Trouble 
can explode if discipline is lacking and in the name of nurturing. Trustees, in a short time of parent interest, become 
impatient with delay and in desperation to make their mark even support the wrong priorities. 

At S.M. U. we are fortunate: much of the rigour of the Board's activity has been associated with supporting strategic 
planning and supporting investigations into such areas as psychological services at the school. Under Board Chairman 
David Edgar's direction the running of the school life is left to the administration where it belongs. This permits Governors 
to be men and women of affairs and vision and not mired in the intricacies of administrative where they do not belong 
— / state this with the wringing of hands in complete deference, of course. 

With each of these components of our school clearly set to enhance the development of S.M.U., it will blossom. 
Other support systems are out there operating too, such as the Parent 's Auxiliary without whose help the school would 
not be supporting much of its treasured possessions under the guidance of past Presidents Mary Barrage, Wendy Pier- 
cy and Val Beeston. With the current - President, Faye Ford, in control the future looks equally bright. 

Of course everything cannot be perfect. I am sorry to say we are losing from the Senior School Faculty Bill McGafin 
and Brian McLagen who joined us last year on loan from the public school system; it's back to brown bag lunches. 
Also leaving are Dr. Duncan Harvey and his wife, Elspeth, who have experienced mid-Atlanticism and are returning 
to England. Dr. Han'ey will be teaching at Haileybury College. To them we all extend our good wishes and thanks 
for the contribution, so substantial in such a short time, they have made to S.M.U. We must also say goodbye to 
Tim Cummings who has made such a difference to our tennis program and who has given his soul to the supervising 
of boarders in International House. We will all miss Tim 's special qualities around the school. Lastly leaving the ranks 
is the effervescent Joan Thompson, who is going to energize some lucky university and study next year. Would as 
we could clone her, but this tireless, indefatigable, talented teacher won't keep still long enough. After eight years 
of producing brilliant performances, she will be missed by students used to her spontaneity, creativity, nurturing and 
discipline. We wish her much good fortune. 

Back on the good news I am pleased to report that what was once a worry, the Racquet Club, is ceasing to be so, 
ostensibly by dint of the work of Chris Worthy and his Board. Without any parental attachment to the school, Chris 
continues to make the Racquet Club his pet project, give of his time unstingingly and travel from Vancouver each 
time his Board sits. We owe him a great deal of his nurturing and discipline. I can tell the ambience is better because 
the T.D.C. is actually being called the Theatre Dance Centre these days and not Torn Down Courts. 

I hope you see why I think the year has been exciting and vigorous one. There is more to come as you can probably 
sense with the appointment of another female administrator in Mrs. Gaye Stone to the Dictatorship of the Junior 
School. In this way at S.M. U. we will continue to practise Joubert's idea that 'education should be gentle and stem, 
not cold and lax'. 

Head Boy's Address 

Mr. Penaluna, Members of Staff , Parents, Guests, Students, and 
Fellow Graduates, good afternoon. 

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, wake up. I know how 
tedious this ceremony can be for those not graduating. In fact, 
even for the graduates. Speech Day is just a wee bit lengthy. But 
for us, you see, there's a point to it all - this actually has meaning. 
This day sums up for us twelve years of hard work into three hours 
of terminal rendundancy. Yet it also gives us a chance to think 
about one year especially, our graduating year. The past year has 
been one of new developments for us, as well as the same old stuff 
you always hear valedictorians drone on about. Yes, the graduates 
of 1989 have, like past grads, been involved in an almost 
unbelievably wide variety of endeavours. We, in the same manner 
as the years before us, have succeeded in art, drama, debating and 
music. We have triumphed in athletics and academics, and we've 
done the school proud (we hope!) But we've done more than just 
that. 1989 saw the one and only Dogs of War Multi-Athletic Club 
take almost every sport the school has to offer, and they 
sometimes won. A Grad Ice Hockey team ravaged a somewhat 
dubious staff side, which boasted, among other things, Mr. 
Featherstone on ice. SMU brought home this year not one but two 
Provincial Championships, which is two more than we've ever 
won before. This year, SMU lost something too - an almost obscene sculpture in the front quad, called, for want of a 
more damning term, a sundial. If the parents check their school bills carefully, they may find something there that was 
another Grad '89 innovation - the 50/50 draw, which allowed the unsuspecting parents to fill the coffers of the grad 
fund via their childrens' charge accounts. This year, like past years, had its full accoutrement of day and boarding 
prefects, but the maroon gestapo of 1989 were the first to be so nattily attired. 

This year's gr. 12 's, like the 12 's of years past, have had the good fortune to be taught by a bizarrely dedicated facul- 
ty of brilliant chemists, biologists, physicists, mathematicians, poets, linguists, musicians, and Mr. Gardiner; but this 
is the first year honoured enough to graduate under the administrative wizardry of Mr. Penaluna. And since most of us 
were also lucky enough to have had Mr. Schaffter as headmaster as well, we are graduating having had the best of both 
worlds. And the chapel stories of Mr. Penaluna have taught us the true value of whatever it was he was talking about. 
Enough flipplancy for a moment. One thing I feel that this year's Grads have that the graduates of the past did not is 
a sense of unity and community. We, as a grade, have really come together. Of course, we're all different people with 
radically different views. But we are all together, the graduating class of 1989. In the words of John Donne, we are all 
"apiece of the continent, a part of the main." I hope that the bonds of friendship which we have formed will not be 
erased by distance, and I don't think they will be. They're stronger than that. 

On a lighter note, and because I know that my mom is probably crying out there, an anonymous comedian once 
wrote, ' 7 refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person . ' ' Well, 1 think the Graduates of 1 989 are all armed. 
Armed and Dangerous. 

Thank you. 

Jason Ford 

Head Girl's Address 

Ladies and Gentlemen, honoured Guests, Headmaster, Staff and 
Fellow Students, 

Looking back on this past year at SMU and trying to sum up the 
attitudes and achievements of my fellow graduates and of the 
school itself I find that one feeling predominates in my mind. I feel 
that this year was a year of bold character and strong individuali- 
ty, as well as of friendship, unity and of cooperative work. Indeed, 
SMU has always prided itself on having a diverse selection of 
students, talented in many areas. And not wrongly have they done 
so. This year's grad class, as I just mentioned is a particularly 
good example of this diversity, or perhaps versatility would be a 
more correct word to use, for, there were not merely several 
samplings of students possessing one particular talent, but rather, 
there was one large united group of very versatile students. Many 
talented artists, musicians, singers, and scholars were often seen 
on the rugby or hockey fields, on the volleyball, basketball or bad- 
minton courts, or on the cross-country trails - just to mention a 
few of the sporting activities that took place this year and in which 
the school saw many great victories. The Grad class should be 
commended for its dedication and hard work in all these areas, 
while trying to absorb all the advantages and pleasures of being a 
grad class. And while trying to grasp the fact that soon their rela- 
tionships with and at SMU would be uprooted and they would have to be replanted elsewhere. However, it would be 
wrong to commend only the students on their achievements. For they owe much of their success to the staff at SMU - 
the staff who taught, coached, advised, and sometimes bewildered them, and who - we are all grateful - possessed 
tremendous strength of character, and sense of humour. The teachers had the ability to laugh at themselves as well as 
at the students. Their great unfailing dedication (in addition to their scholarship) is not something to be taken for 
granted. Over the past year the school has seen many new ideas and developments. Thanks to the funds from the 
Parents Auxilliary, the prefects took on a new and more noticeable look . . . 

The school also saw the tragic and not so mysterious disappearance of that monumental work of art - the Sundial - 
that lit up the quad with its glowing presence over the past two years. 

What began as a simple Grad fundraising idea soon developed into the most powerful unique money making ventures 
for the class as well as bizarre form of entertainment which livened up Wednesday's assembly in the gym. The event 
was the 50/50 draw and it starred Mr. 50 Rog and Mr. 50 Paul - two of the most persuasive and incessant salesmen the 
school had ever had. 

Two other examples of the strong motivation and organizing talent of the grad class were the creations of the now in- 
ternational Dogs of War multi-talented and what started out as Saturday Night Midnight Hockey. The hockey recently 
saw its culimnation in the Manley Cup - a gruelling match between staff and students in which we saw the staffs sport- 
ing abilities and their somewhat violent tendencies. This kind of activity is an excellent example of the strong interac- 
tions between student and staff. Even Mr. Penaluna made several appearances to show off his hidden talent as a 
ferocious menacing goalie. Indeed, this was an excellent culination of Mr. Penaluna 's debut year as headmaster of the 
senior school. His feet, as last years head boy suggested, did certainly prove big enough to fill Mr. Schaffter's shoes. 
And, his arrival, in addition to brining no disruption or rough transition, has brought new life, vigor, and often humor 
to the running of the school. The graduates (and all students) owe thanks to SMU for not instilling ideas or forcing 
commitments upon us, but rather for providing so many opportunities for us. We were able and encouraged to draw 
from all aspects of the school whatever our individual personality and talents would allow and in so doing so also gave 
to the school. SMU has provided us with a wealth of knowledge with which to fill ourselves as full as we possibly could 
and wealth of activities in which to participate to the best of our abilities and enjoyment. So, to the school, thank you, 
and to all my fellow graduates, good luck.

As always, many volunteer 
"person" -hours have gone into the 
production of this annual. The grade 
12 group, led by Ian Ball, included 
Beth Middleton (typing), Conrad 
Chan (grads), Sussex Davis (ads.) 
and Jason Wale (fads). Vital 
assistance has been given by 
Christine Reilly, Laura Bradbury, 
Andrea Sharpe and Renee Dugan 
(grade 11) and Jobi Norman (grade 
10). Without a shadow of a doubt, 
however, this year's annual would 
not be here but for the superb efforts 
of Vanessa Richards. She produced 
large parts of both the Junior School 
and Senior School sections, and I 
cannot thank her enough. Middle 
School staff and students, under the 
direction of Mrs. Richards, have pro- 
duced an excellent section. 

To all of the above, to students who 
"snapped shutters", to staff who 
"wrote-up", and to parents who 
pushed, pulled and typed in the 
background, I give a hearty THANK 

I hope each person who receives 
this book will join me!

Sarah Archibald 

Sarah Archibald from Victoria, B.C. entered SMU as one of the first original school girl lifers. Sarah was 
a talented musician and athlete in grades 8 and 9 until she decided to turn to her vocal talents in grade 10. 
Sarah was a part of the chorus in JCSS and Orpheus. Sarah will always remember midnight beach runs with 
L.H. (Laura Hammersley) and sneaking into a certain I.H. room throughout grade 1 1 and 12. We lost Sarah 
in grade 1 1 when she decided to turn her time to her studies and M.C. Sarah plans to attend U.B.C. after a 
quick trip to Japan this Summer to study psychology. Later, she plans to enter Law School. Good Luck - 
Sayonara, Sarah. 

Mark Atkins 

Mark Atkins came to SMU in grade 5 with barely a stir. But while everyone was paying attention to other 
things, Mark was asking his patented "Mark" questions (keeping the teachers and his classmates off guard), 
and was thrusting to the top reaches of the class. When it came to any math (even pan-fourth dimentional 
tricalculus) or any science, Mark Atkins knows it all and more. But Mark is also known outside the 
classroom; he is internationally reknowned for winning the America's Cup seven times (in only three 
years!!). Don't let the Ted Turner exterior fool you, Mark really is a nice guy. Some may be misled by the 
superficial, but those of us who know the real Mark like and respect him a lot. Mark plans to head off to any 
of assorted high-power campuses in either Canada or the U.S. - where he will major in something very 
obscur; (but very profitable later on!). Remember, Mark, he who laughs last (i.e. You) laughs best. Ciao - 
and keep the faith! 

Saquib Aziz 

Saquib's entrance to S.M.U. was brought about by a summer accomplishment by reading "Crime and 
Punishment ". This man could be seen rounding a comer in 4th gear and then stalling his pathetic excuse for 
a Honda Civic. This provoked him to use his poor investment as a down payment on a Testarossa, in which 
he cruised the streets looking for a hot T. V. or C.K. with a pit stop at the Fox for some entertainment. Other 
accomplishments included Merlin's, where he could be heard singing "Should I stay or should I go?", 
riding camels, driving with the Rothman's Porche team, and going to Salem and back with B & H. Saqib 
learned a few bad words over the year: Calculus. Algebra and cross-grades! 

We wish the Ambassador good times for which he replies, "Right off pal!"

Andrew Barrett 

Andrew Charles Lamban Barrett arrived at SMU In grade eight and became one of the "Four Fatties and Kai." easily 
fulfilling the prerequisite of membership (fat!). Over the past two years, he has made a real name for himself as a singer, 
holdmg a commandmg position In the school choir. Music, however. Is only one of Andrew's fortes. In his grade eleven 
year. Andrew toured with an "elite" Canadian nigby squad to the Far East and played as a member of this year's 2nd XV. 
While in Japan. Andrew experienced the culinary delights of the Far East, its unique culture, and. most importantly, its 
street-comer beer machines. Andrew then joined the cross-country team. In his first race, he finished an admirable 21st In a 
22-runner race. His only other competition - Dave Burke • had fallen In a ditch. Andrew moved on to try a different event; 
unable to comprehend the intricacies of javelin throwing, he used his aerodynamically designed hair style to capture the 
coveted third-place speed-walking ribbon in the City Finals. One of this years "Men In Maroon". Andrew makes a bold 
fashion statement, sporting not only maroon blazer but also tie. shirt and suspenders. 

After experiencing "Viet-nat" in grade ten. Andy challenged the rigorous "University Tour" and visited the institution 
he plans to attend; he will be found at R M C . Kingston, next year just "sitting around thinking do-de-do". Andrew's 
bright, jovial personality has added a lot to our grad class and he will probably be best remembered for his acute hearing and 
uncanny grasp of situations. Good Luck. Andrew! 

Jason Beaver 

From the quiet dude with the fish bowl glasses and the cool Supercuts doo emerged Mr. Buzz and our 
beloved pyro who burns down houses with Thor missies. Who is this man in Spandex? Is it a musician? Is it 
a rapper'? No. its Mr. 50/50! From the halls of our humble school catapults our own megastar super hero. 
This John McEnroe wanna-be is the other half of the famous Zimbabwean duo along with "A. Boraston". 
He's a stalwart member of "The Dogs of War", who scored moral victories over the girls volleyball team, 
and over the girls B.C. field hockey champs - UVIC Uw - "in your face!" Sorry Edberg dropped out of the 
Australian Open due to back pain. This Boltamania captain will be remembered most for his whining pro- 
tests at weekend football. "Why can't Al and I be on the same team?!" and "At least the Broncos made the 
playoffs. Paul. " Next year this Way Mondo Rad student will attend UBC and possibly attempt to destroy an 
apartment with his Zimbabwean Duo counterpart. Al. If not. he can be found being a burden on someone by 
loafing on their tennis court. 

Sarah Beeston 

Sarah came to SMU in Grade 8 along with 15 other timid girls in a quest to conquer the "uncivilized 
boys". In no time at all she had adjusted to the fast pace at SMU. joining the field hockey team and the track 
team. Sarah was also a skillful equestrian, winning many awards in the Victoria area. "Vet as busy as Sarah 
was, she still managed to find time to "hang loose". Grade 10 arrived and brought with it a more serious in- 
tellectual side of Sarah. She was awarded Captain of the Jr. field hockey team and became an active 
volunteer. She also (to everyone's surprise) gave up her blossoming social life, and ever constant love struck 
groupies, in exchange for this tall guy with extraordinarily big feet from Hicksville - named DAN. Sarah 
finally reached Grade 12. with much joy and relief, also came grief as Dan left for England (what were those 
percentages - 6:4?). Yet Sarah quickly found herself and re-emerged in SMU life becoming involved in 
photography, art. and her personal favourite - Choir. She was also a member of the Sr. field hockey 1st XI 
team from SMU - which won the provincial championships. Next year. Sarah hopes to be somewhere in 
Europe (hopefully France); and then plans to head off to Queens. Tiene Suelo y Adios. or should we say au 
revoir and good luck. 


Alison Bodein 

'Some say a seventeen year old can't serve 250Km/h!" 
Boris Becker 

Alicyn has spent 5 memorable years at SMU. She came in grade 8 as a headbanger and conformed in 
grade 9 to become "normal". Her main talents lie in drama, art and music. Academics were never a high 
priority ("1 only have to be reasonably literate"). Her artwork was seen in the hallways She always had in- 
teresting ideas ("I can't draw!") and she was known as the Silkscreen Queen. Her talent for drama and 
music shone through in Juve. Jesus Christ Superstar, the Physicists. The Mikado. The Christmas Choirs and 
the Japan Choir. She will be remembered for her fly impressions, her talent in rec. badminton ("I'm stan- 
ding over here ") and not knowing the difference between a seagull and a pigeon. When asked what she 
wants to be she simply states "I am an actress." Her success is guaranteed by her enthusiasm and con- 
fidence. Good luck and we hope to see you on the big screen soon!

'The only way to have a good time is to never know what you're doing." 

D. Burke 

Crawling on his hands and knees, Al the refijgee from snowy Comox. B.C. , made it to SMU in grade 1 1 . 
It took several moons for many to discover who that cute, red headed Scottish guy was. but once they did. Al 
became one of the most popular people in the grade - "EXCELLENT" (until Ian destroyed his social life - 
"BOGUS"). But not to worry, the guys still talked to Al. and soon Al, Rog and Colin said, "Let there be 
D.O.W.I". and so unleashed the Dogs of War. Soon the Dogs were seen on the rugby pitch, the hockey 
pitch and the volleyball court (led by Al and Rog as the Zimbabwean Duo - ZD) and their legend spread far 
and wide. But Al's greatest sport is tennis where he is King of the Court (look out Boris Becker - you wimp). 
Al even turned the academic side of SMU on its ear by capturing the Bio prize and by almost making the 
honor roll. If only people would realize how powerful Al really is. Al is going to have a Way Mondo Rad 
time at UBC as an engineer ... Al. have a great time and don't ski too much! 

Barbara Bundon 

A veteran of three years of SMU X-coumry. Barb has seen it all. This survivor of countless attacks of 
whipping cream, shaving cream, and rubbing alcohol has developed a near invincible endurance specialist. 
(Both in running and putting up with Colin and John.) Barb's dedication to ninning took her to the 
metropolis of Castlegar. B.C. ending in what can only be called "Barb's excellent adventure". Among her 
many talents is her infamous skiing ability which has sparked such comments from fellow skiers as "when 
the going gets moguUy and vertical. Barb gets slow and paranoid", and "you ski like you drive". Barb is 
one of those drivers who made the bumper sticker "I do own the road" the gospel truth. Her wondrous tale 
of romance and adventure "It was so funny ... I thought it was him but it wasn't," captivated the hearts of 
millions and made her a storyteller without equal. It is a good thing that Barb can always laugh, even when 
she IS bus) being slightly more tense than Khomeini (unfortunately, she has a stress factor of 9.) Barb, just 
remember things can only get worse and we love you anyway - even if your "Barb Blocks" are a mile long. 

David Burke 

In the 2'/i years in which Dave has been trying to maintain his Australian accent at SMU, he has gamed 
boundless fame, won innumerable friends, and performed innumerable feats of dexterity and balance. One 
of a select few Daves and Jasons who demonstrated their flaunting of age-laws in the middle of downtown 
Victoria. Burke, the original Young One, has shown us all what it is to truly not care if one winds up at 
Camosun. Dave's idea of a (legal) good time involves beautiful women and fantastic surfing. As can 
therefore be expected, Dave is eager to get out of SMU and fly back to the land of Aus. We'll miss him when 
he goes, because by the time he leaves he siill won't have paid back all the Marb's money, and "reading 
material" he owes us. But we don't really mind. Dave: if you were a good credit risk you'd probably be bor- 
ing. Well. Dave, you must enjoy yourself an awfiil lot of the time! (see quote!!) 

Boom Shanka - The Young Ones 


Colin Cameron 

One of the founding fathers of the Dogs of War, Colin excelled at Cross country. Track and Field and 
Swimming. "Barney Bear" enjoyed Spanish 10 so much he took it twice. Someof Colin's favorite pastimes 
include buttboarding. be-skate-ball. windsurfing and Saturday night hockey. His least favorite pastimes are 
sneaking out by himself, leaning over rocks, and being shaved. In Grade 9 he got frozen near Alaska and 
didn't quite thaw out until Grade 12. Colin, a member of "Deuler" (with Bruce, Matt and Tim) also enjoyed 
Art 9. When not running in Cross Country races he can be found on the slopes of the nearest ski hill. Colin's 
idols include Scott Schmidt, Dave Scott, and Steve Martin. "Could 1 get a large cup please'?" and "Do you 
want a Frisbee? 1 want a Frisbee!". are two "stupid things" Colin has said. He has a knack for finding the 
right gift such as Barb's extension cord. While on tour, he got off in the wrong place, handcuffed to a girl. 
Colin aspires to the U of Whistler, U.B.C., or to watch "Star Wars" another 50 times. We hope you do 

Tina Carrington 

Tina snuck into SMU for her final year, attracting little attention. That was only until cross-country season 
started. She promptly went out and won her first race. She attracted a lot of attention, not only for the win, 
but also because of her habit of inhaling poisonous gases into her lungs by running only on the busiest streets 
in Victoria and by taking occasional trips up Mt. Tolmie. She soon tired of Mt. Tolmie. realizing the view 
wasn't what it used to be, and compensated for this by spending more time running the streets of Victoria at 
a breakneck pace, using a whole traffic lane. She will be remembered for her enormous capacity for liquids 
(water, of course), giving the guys on the cross-country team a run for their money and. no matter the 
temperature, always being chilly. Next year. Tina plans to stay away from the warmer climate of her 
Arizona home by attending UVIC. 

Conrad Chan 

"Conrad" or "Kin Ho" or "Cum-Wah" or "Comrade Chan" (fiendishly clever agent of the People's Republic), etc . . . was 5rst 
seen at SMU in grade 6. We believe that he originated in Hong Kong - but to our surprise, he was bom in KANSAS CITY in the U.S. of 
A. Nowadays when he Lsixjt of schtxil. he can often be found in either Hong Kong. VarxxHiver or Honolulu. HI. When he first arrived al 
the school, directly frum the Oneni, we did experience some difficulty in understanding his English. Despite his weakness in that area, he 
did manage to capture the French award. As the years passed. Conrad didn't manage to win anymore French awards, but he has become 
quite a perM.>n In the la.s1 few years, he has been discTissing and trying to ain\ince Paul C. Ror\ L.. and Jason Z. aUxit the supenority of 
Orientals Up to this dav, the battle has nx ceased. Conrad will aiwavs be remembered as the person with the "REDDEST" arxl 
■BRIGHTEST" face, switched on always during the weekends, hum a»nsunipoon of hus SECRET FAVOURITE SOFT DRINK. He 
Ls perhaps the Best Salesman ai ihLs school, having attracted hurxireds lo his Chinese New Year Dinner thaxigh the use of his 
■FAVOURITE SOFT DRINKS DEAL". Now turning to the sports scene, tennis and golf are his most prominent sports. But during 
one of the Student vs Staff Friendlv Golf Tournaments, his golf skills vanished when Mr. G. discussed his final Calculus percentage ai the 

In his final year at SMU. on top of other, heavy commitments, he is the person in charge of the "GRADSECTIGN" of the yeaitwok. 
Conrad also holds the all-time record for applying to the most colleges. He has applied to every comer of North Amenca including a 
place called Lenrtoxville. Quebec! But wherever you decide to go next year, best of luck, big guy! 

Tony Chan 

Tony (A.K.A. Crip. Slick) first came to SMU way back in '78. After adapting well to boarding life, he 
quickly attempted all sorts of sports - from cricket to fencing - but finally decided that rugby was his forte. In 
Gr. 10, he played colts rugby which gave him the expertise lo eventually captain the infamous "SPECIAL 
FORCES" to an undefeated season. Unfortunately, a serious knee injury in Gr. 12 prevented Tony from all 
hopes of rugby glory. Some of his other accomplishments include 3 years as a sax player, volunteer work, 
boarding house prefect and one year as a distinguished choir member. Tony's main interests in Gr. 12 (in 
and out of the classroom) revolved entirely around Lara. Nobody will ever forget these two constantl\ 
together in the foyer of New House or sneaking into Wenman at 1:00 in the morning. (To study perhaps?') 
Next year Tony plans to take Commerce at UBC - and then possibly transfer to Royal Roads. We wish you 
all the best. 


Carl Chuang 

Carl ■'Death Stalker". Hong Kong Chuang. Statmang. or '"Air" Chuang entered S.M.U. at the beginning 
of Grade 1 1 and quickly started amusing International House with his zany antics. This, however, was all a 
trick because Carl's real motive was to take over the school from his secret base in the gym. (Some thought 
he was one of Comrade Chan's fiendishly clever operatives - even though Chan vigorously denied it . . .) 
Carl eventually gave up trying to take over the school (or the world) and settled for playing tons of B-Ball. 
even sometimes for the killer-B's. and tennis (where despite cunning play, he lost to IBall in the School 
Tournament. HOW. Carl??). Carl even put in a bit of time studying (What was that French mark again, 
Carl??). All in all, Carl is really a pretty good guy and 1 hope he succeeds in whatever he tries. 

Dr. Free Throw 

Mikhail Cohen 

Mikhail, Mikki. Mik or Mukhl (as the Ontario Universities affectionately call her) came from the Great 
White North in grade 1 1 . She soon fit into the SMU scene and in one short year earned the position of a 
boarder "Powerhouse" prefect. Although coming from Whitehorse she's used to the snow, she'll never 
forget near-death while sleeping in the "cold tent" on Garibaldi. Other experiences with snow include con- 
veniently "sitting" on moguls ("I can't get my skiis on!") on the ski trip. She'll always be remembered for 
her famous expressions such as "hooo lee!", "let's do something REALLY fun this weekend, K' ". 
"doesn't my hair look long?!", and "really, I'll go on a diet tomorrow!" She soon became famous for her 
amazing French accent, and often entertained a French class with outbursts such as "The bee's coming right 
down the green line for me!", and "communion wafer" Mikhail definiich made her mark on the track and 
field team with her formidable achievements with the javelin ("bui 1 thought 1 had to go get it right awayl"). 

This Probs and Stats star was not one of Mr. Murdoch's favourite students, but she enjoyed Geography 12 
all the same. Next year, while she's not at Muffin Break, Mikhail will be attending Western or UBC. Good 
luck, you're an awesome friend and we'll all miss you. 

Paul Collis 

'It's a dog eat dog world out there, so carry a garden weasel. 

Known by the whole school as Mr. 50, 50 or el senor Hormones, Paul has, in his 4 years at SMU, fought 
the singular battle against sexism and discrimination of all kinds, and anyone who has visited Paul's room 
knows the reverence to which he holds women. Paul's dedication to the heavenly oasis. Super Bowl bound 
city of Pittsburgh is exceeded only by his fashion excellence, what with ventilated shoes and Value Village 
shirts. This Late Night groupie has also impressed us with his mystical car (mystical because no one knows 
how it runs or attracts frontal lobes) and his frequent altercations with a certain member of staff ("You're 
within one inch of being expelled!" "Yeah, right") Paul, the founder of male bonding night and future 
harem lord (Right Trina?) has left us with fond memories of catching big air in orange thermofioats and 2 
years on Mr. Cordle's 1st XI soccer. Mr. Featherstone's intellectual equivilant plans to study sports jour- 
nalism after UBC and reminds us all (see quote below) . . . 

Andrew Comrie 

*'No. you see. that's where you'd be wrong . . ." 

When you think of Canada and sports, two names come to mind - Wayne Gretzky and Andrew Comrie. Well, not really, 
but that's typical of the mind of an R/C car racer. The premier accomplice of Jason Ford in "C&R" (cynicism and realism), 
Andrew aspires to own the longest answering machine beep known to mankind- He is the only person at SMU who has to 
decide not which socks he's going to wear, but which CAR he's going lo drive. One of only two people to bnng Mr. Gar- 
diner 10 tears with his puns. Andrew also brings the Stanford admissions staff to tears - tears of laughter at his long-winded, 
pseudo-intellectual, semi-literaie ramblings. After his Stanford stint. Oxford will be waiting for him with open arms - prob- 
ably with high-capacity machine guns to keep him off-campus. His record as an ongmal member of the Dogs of War will. 
however, likely stand in good stead. 

When not lopping off heads as the Lord High Executioner in the "Mikado", Andrew regularly shocks the world with his 
philosophical revelations. In his quest for the interesting, deeply philosophical women who attract him (as do English - car 
oil spots on his driveway), Andrew has tried to memorize all of Simon and Garfunkle. unfortunately coming away knowini: 
only Monty Python skits (which tend to impress only other Python fans, i.e. guys). Well, Andrew, nobody expects the 
Spanish Inquisition. Keep tabs on your towel and remember ■ you can't have everything . , . where would you put ii',* 


Greg Corman 

Gregg came to the school in grade nine. Sex Pistols music in hand, hailing from the rocking metropolis of 
Nevada City, California. He got to know Mr. Faulkner quite well after a time and had a fascination along 
with B.F. over a flying purple chicken head. He took to art instantly, showing great wizardry with hard 
though unique portraits. In grade ten, he transferred himself to International House. He was known quite 
well for the setting of his dorm, his taste in decorations was quite colorful and different, to say the least. 
Grade eleven rolled on. Gregg enjoyed himself at many parties, trying to remember some was impossible 
(must have been good!). 

He pulled muscles when it came to room cleanup and only had great troubles trying to keep track of his 
cigarettes. He didn't take to sports much, but he was a skilled soccer player and loved that slide tackle. 
Gregg was cynical at times but more sincere than expected. He had a lot to offer at times, and was one 
"groovy " person. Wherever you are or what you do, we'll remember you and trust us one day to find you 

The lone Arctic Wolff 

Andrew Costa 

Andy arrived at S.M.U. in grade 9 as a refugee from Glenlyon. Although he has been in private schools 
since grade 4 he has still managed to maintain his sanity. Andy didn't participate in school activities very 
often but this certainly didn't prevent him from having fun. In fact, this helped a lot because he had more 
time away from the school to do more interesting things! His endless pursuit of good times and just a linle 
too much partying led to very average grades. His grades, however, are good enough to get him accepted to 
UVIC, which is the school he has chosen to attend next year. 

Mathew Crawley 

Mathew Crawley better known to the boys as "Beav", arrived at S.M.U. in Grade 8 from the metropolis 
of Abbotsford. He made friends very quickly and joined the D.S.O.S. (distinguished students of S.M.U.). 
In Grade 9 he caught skate fever which led him to hanging out downtown and in Cadboro Bay in various 
types of worn clothing, his hair loaded with gel. Soon after, his true love, Sarah, came on the scene and 
Mathew's appearance and comportment changed greatly. He was made a prefect and terrified International 
House with his ferocious dedication to the job. The boarders feared his waking call with his "magic ham- 
mer" In Grade 12, 'Beave " was a key player in the 1st XV's back row. and particularly enjoyed cannon- 
balling poor unsuspecting "Shaw" wingers. 

In the future "Beav" hopes to go into a career in advertising or graphic design where he will likely end up 
designing beer labels or cans of dog food. Nevertheless, "Beave " is our all time hero. Good luck. 

George Crothall 

George enjoys the distinction of being the only descendant of a Maori chieftan ever to grace the portals of 
S.M.U. With his groovy accent and ever-present grin, this Man from Downunder has (after a bii of a rocky 
start) won the hearts and respect of his classmates. His efforts on behalf of the Grad Class truly have been 
Herculean. George also has made time for some other activities - to wit: chairing the Dance Committee, be- 
ing a "professional" photographer for the Yearbook and playing a spot of tennis. Lucky, lucky George is 
transferring his talents to the fabled Silicon Valley in California next fall. He will attend the picturesque 
University of Santa Clara located in the heartland of HighTech. While there, he plans to take another step on 
the road to realising his dream of designing the CAR OF THE FUTURE. Good luck - you've been a great 
addition to this class. 


Mark Crowther 

Once known as Peanut, the Weatherman, Mark Crowther came to SMU in Grade 9 from Bristol, England 
and spent his first years entertaining his chums with many a tale from his hometown. Through Grade 10 he 
acquired seniority (we don't know how) and was rewarded by being one of the few Grade 1 1 "s chosen to 
"Break in" the New House, returning as a prefect in Grade 12. Being a well rounded athlete, Mark pursued 
his talents in rugby, squash and, of course, soccer with T.C. His strongest field is cricket where he 
represented the senior team for three years and represented B.C. in Winnipeg at the National Tournament in 
1988. Less energetically he played snooker and quickly ranked himself as one of the top boarders. More 
energetically, he is one of the survivors of "NitNam" where he'll remember the entertainment of the two 
dogs one morning. Mark will always have fine memories of SMU including "Pizza on a Rope", Mr. 
Nugent's english test, automobile and snake imitations, pickle sticking, also the Grad Ski Trip, where he 
proved his agility on the slopes during the day and his non-agility in the evenings. On a more serious note, 
Mark is planning to attend either Queens, Western or U.B.C. to study science. S.M.U. will miss you. Mark, 
and so will we. We wish you Good Luck in whatever you pursue in the future. 

Michael Davidson 

Mike, a veteran of the Junior School, signed his soul and his bowl-cut over to SMU in grade 4 and has 
TRIED to keep his nose out of trouble ever since. Grade nine saw him skip out of town for Ontario and one 
last taste of public school before returning to SMU and Japan Choir Tour '87 and "Mike, get a grip on 
yourself, boy!" Basketball was shortlived, (at least the bench was warm) but track season saw this closest 
environmentalist reach new highs of personal achievement at the B.C.'s. Otherwise known as "Trout" and 
member of the infamous Drakemen, he spent many hours Volvo - cruisin' etc. with Rat. Roach, Mahomo. 
Crip. Suni and The Fro. Mike was a "sure-footed dancing apostle in J.C. Superstar and drama saw him in 
other school productions. He'll always remember philosophizing with Corman and the Ricker during spares 
and "christening - in the hot tub" on Grad ski trip '89. It's been an eight year stint but you've managed to 
crawl out alive, Mike so good luck and all the best for the future. 

Geoffrey Davies 

Geoff Davies. This man first tasted the dinners of Brown Hall in grade 8. It wasn't until grade 9 that he 
started to care. His total of 19 or so detentions in one week is still a record unapproachable by any known be- 
ing in grade 8. The boy known as Gheov outgrew this name in grade 10 when he and a few friends took it 
upon themselves to enlarge their International House room with knives, cricket bats, swords, feet and fists. 
Needless to say, Mr. Tongue put an end to his budding redecorating career. But it wasn't Mr. Tongue who 
stopped him and some friends from climbing down International House from the 3rd floor using sheets. 
After all sorts of extra-curricular activities, he's confused and not sure of where to go and for what purpose. 
This guy from smooth Rock Falls shall probably go on an extended tour of the alleys behind Safeway stores, 
while contemplating his not so clear future. 

Sussex Davis 

Sussex, a Seattle bom Victorian, served seven years at SMU - some good, some . . . well, okay. He was a 
large part of the dance committee without ever being on it. and, as chief of advertising he is responsible for 
the magnificent ads in the yearbook. An enthusiastic sports fan. Sussex skiis and plays squash, soccer and 
baseball with moderate success (It's not whether you win or lose . . .). And his net play and volleying in ten- 
nis is some of the most aggressive ever seen at the SMUSRC courts. He has tried his hand at flying and driv- 
ing, but since he is known for his erratic Land Rover, playing taxi driver for $$ and acquiring speeding 
tickets on New Years Eve, flying seems the safer alternative. 

When he was not wondering how to avoid homework, he was fixing (breaking) cars at the garage, plotting 
to destroy the world with his computers or volunteering (at least that's what he called it) at the Queen Alex- 
andria Hospital. 

After school on Fridays he could be found in the electronics club learning that capacitors can store charge 
as well as releasing it, ZAP! Having achieved the silver level of the Duke of Eidinburgh Award, he is still not 
satisfied and is working on the gold. Although he has played the trombone for three years, he sounds as if he 
has only just learned, just ask Mr. Mackay. Sussex has achieved a reputation for being "lucky" on math 
contests, which he hopes will land him in place in engineering at UVIC, the only university to which he has 


Charles Dobson 

Chuck, hailing from Syria, came to SMU from the hallowed halls of Lord Byng Secondary School. 
.Although Chuck was only here for a year; he endeared himself to many people through his mature adult-like 
attitude (and his ability to prove it when asked). Apan from raising school spirits. Chuck's attention focused 
on playing basketball. Although he could have made the team. Chuck's attention focused on something else. 
(J B Van.?), for Chuck doesn't like focusing on too many things at once. After some initial . . . uh . . . set- 
backs in his academic performance (the object of the school is different from the object of golf. Chuck), 
Chuck battled back at the rigorous courses at SMU (i.e. he enrolled in Probs and Stats). In any case. Chuck, 
vou'll be missed. Good luckl 

James Downes 

James, from the land down under, came to S.M.U. a year and a half ago. His main intention in coming to 
Canada was to take full advantage of the ski slopes. At school he is often engaged in certain memorable ac- 
tivities such as bleaching his hair. An impressive "second row", Jim was a member of both the third XV 
and the infamous "special forces " Next year he has decided to return to his hometown to attend university. 
We wish him the best of luck. 

Michael Bruce 

"Ay, there's the rub," "That's so raw." 

Mike's grand entrance into grade 8 as the "four foot Fijian " was marked by the gross profit of can- 
dygrams and being the star left winger of the grade 8 rugby team. From that point however, things were to 
change drastically. .Although grade 10 was the "most boring year yet" grade 11 was a total change. This 
year was marked by intense love affairs, Softball, and ROCK CLIMBING. By grade 12 the master of the 15 
fewt lumper and "magic mix" was obnoxious to everyone. As an accomplished kicker for the first XV. 
1 S .A Select member, and part of the elite left side connection on the first XI soccer team. Mike has been 
propelled into jockdom. He was even seen making a guest appearance for the D.O.W. Mike was also vice- 
captain of Bolton, respected and looked up to by all the budding Bolsters out there. LONG LIVE 
BOLT.AM.ANI.A He probably ne\er will get this driver's license (some say due to the "here" accident) but 
probably because of his ability to mooch rides . . . primarily from women. Mike is also known for his ability 
to become one with the bush, as well as being one of the infamous "Ranier six pack". If they let him in. 
Mike plans to attend U.B.C. to take up conmierce. We will miss him dearly. 

John Dryden 

If you can't stand the water then get out of the kitchen 

Af^er several years of cutting through the bush surrounding his house. John managed to reach SMU. by gr. 
7. The country' bumpkin had a trumpet under his arm and was many times mistaken as a travelling musician, 
but once people heard him play they knew he wasn't. He was quickly rid of his trumpet but his attempts at an 
athletic career were limited to swimming due to a rare and sometimes fatal knee problem. .After the passing 
of this feared disease, in gr. 10. John developed into a superstar athlete. He traded in his speedo for spandex 
and became a member of the elitest and radical group known as the "X-Country Extreme Team." This 
group came to be the bane of all public school teams and various women as well as (B B. B.M. K.R. B B. 
B.B, B.B). By gr. 12 John had 2 top five placings in B.C. He managed this despite widespread death and 
destruction in the hotel not to mention that the room smelled. John will remember tearing down the ski 
slopes in his wicked tuck position and plunging down a 6 million foot precipice. John played a tad of soccer 
a bit more squash and we musn't forget that John was a D.O.W. Driving was John's true calling and 
although he was forced to sacrafice his "cosmic banana peel" in the line of duty more than once, they both 
survived. John is a personal friend of the slippery Ameoba Man but they have never been seen together 
John will never forget the rigorous rock climbing adventures, bugging T.T. with PC. in W.P. John plans to 
go somewhere and study something next year He has high aspirations of becoming a P.E./ Socials teacher, 
maybe even return to SMU. - just contemplate that Uncle Brian. 


Timothy Edgar 

"Someday I know I'll look back on this and laugh."' 

Tim was an awesome member of the curling team, and excelled in maths, sciences and computers. He also 
wrote many math contests and received a provincial award in the Commonwealth Essay Competition, (not to 
mention being a slave boy on the DOW rugby team). He was a memberof the Caddy Bay Rat Pack and spent 
a lot of time m "Art 9" but doesn't remember much. His diverse idols are the Muppets and Led Zepplin. 
One time, Tim, Matt and company enjoyed the luxury of their own mansion for a weekend and will never 
shop at Shop Easy again. He knows a neat trick to skip the line at 7-eleven after parties ("I just breathed on 
that kid!") Tim hid in a closet to think and came up with a new philosophy on women, "The bigger the bet- 
ter". Tim's only form of exercise is skipping which he likes to do at Muffin Break. Tim's a bit of a shady 
character, usually avoiding the obvious places and coming in the back door. Tim hopes to study commerce 
at Queen's next year; we all wish him the best - Deutermyacota forever! 

Elizabeth Ewart 

Liz came to SMU in grade 10 from the booming metropolis of FERNIE. She has certainly had her share of 
embarrassing moments during her three years as a boarder, including a certain party in October and the inci- 
dent of "sorey sorey sorey foot". Some of Liz's favorite pastimes include cutting hearts in underwear, 
raiding dorms, stealing pencils from Mrs. Smith's music class and driving (remember Jason's car . 
ooops!). She has also participated in many sports such as soccer, field hockey ("Oh my god, 1 broke m\ 
stick!), track and cross country. Liz will never forget her outdoor trips ("So, where are the cabins?) and her 
ski trips to Whistler and Blackcombe ("excuse me, is your name Bing or Bong'?"). Her pet peeves include 
exams. Bio disections and International House. However, Liz did manage to survive those crazy years at 
SMU and she became a prefect in grade 12 (yes, we all know how much you love those grade lO's). Liz has 
made an enormous contribution to life at SMU. We wish you the best of luck next year, wherever you end 
up! Always remember: Don't do anything we wouldn't do and hold on tight to that Chem book!! 

Ian Farish 

Ian came to SMU four years ago from the rollin' town of Cranbrook, B.C. At first, he was extremely 
gullible and actually believed that there were elevators in School House. Soon after his arrival, he was given 
the name "FISH". He doesn't know who first called him this, but it seems to have stuck. In grade ten. Fish 
moved to International House where he began a three year career of late night study sessions. He developed 
his own exclusive "caffeine formula" and to this day we wonder whether he needs any sleep at night. Ian 
has contributed to many facets of SMU life. He performed often in chapel with the Stage Band and stood up 
tor numerous solos on the sax. In grade twelve, Ian decided to try out show biz as a member of the chorus in 
The Mikado. He is also a keen rugby player. The words "Hey guys, lets go kick the MITRE!" were heard 
all too often in New House. In grade eleven Ian was put in charge of the Harvey Housers. along with Nolan 
Magnus and Aaron Sawicki. Although he liked the kids and his dorm, overlooking the quad, when grade 
twelve came around, Ian decided to sample the "quiet life" in New House. His job there was especially 
challenging. Throughout the year he battled to get everyone to chapel on time not to mention his attempts to 
keep the third floor in one piece. Ian also played School Prefect, and loved to show off his sporty new 
blazer Next year. Fish may leave B.C. to attend U.T., UWO, or Queens. However, the skiing in the west is 
always the best, so he may decline the offers from the east and attend U.B.C. 

Andrew Finall 

Andrew came to SMU in grade 5. Mr. Schaffter's glorious description of the school gave him an initial 
feeling of excitement about coming. Reality soon took its toll and he quickly settled down into the humdrum 
of SMU life. Now, 8 years later he is emerging slightly taller but basically unchanged (sad, isn't it?). Most 
of Andrew's efforts at SMU have gone into keeping a low profile. Despite these efforts, he has still achieved 
a silver level Duke of Edinburgh award, as well as the much envied position of computer room monitor. An- 
drew's sports involvment has been rather lopsided; nothing but squash for the last 3 years. All that can be 
said is that there is still room for improvement; keep trying Andrew. He has also spent many hours as a 
volunteer at the Queen Alexandra hospital for children. He slaved with the rest of the yearbook advertising 
committee under the watchful eye of its Fascist Editor. His westcoast surrmier was cut short to go play with 
heavy machinery in the ovens of Eastern Canada. Andrew's heart was won over by the sweltering (Sahara 
desert) summer and the Arctic winters in the Eiast and for this reason he hopes to attend university there next 
year. In the future, Andrew hopes to pursue a career in money-making, ahem . . . engineering. After 
graduation. Andrew is sure to remember SMU for something; even if it's only the long drives in from 
"Sidney by the Sea" (Do they have electricity down there?) So long SMU!! 

Jason Ford 

If you happen to poke about in the area slightly to the right of Genghis Khan, you're likely to find Jason 
Ford. His grade 9 study hall subjects claim that when no one is watching he slips on a furry hat and rolls it 
furiously around on his head. Jason, is. however, only human. In other words, he is a carbon-based bipedal 
life form who happens to have very much his own ideas about digital watches. During the four years in 
which Jason has attended SMU. he has embarrassed himself in choir, embarrassed other people in 
arguments, and frequently remmded Mr. Gardiner that our parents are PAYING him to "teach us this 
stuff!" A debater of some note. Jason remains better known for his passionate "discussions" (complete 
with wild gesticulations) on ski tnps. Jason claims to remember travelling to Japan (especially Kyoto) in 
grade 10. One of the few surviving Viet-Nat vets, Jason is just slightly more realistic than realism itself. It's 
been important to have as head boy a guy who is able to remind us. when things are going really well, what 
exactly could go wrong. Well, Jase, keep your towel close at hand, don't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisi- 
tion ("Excellent"), and don't blow up the world straight away - you may need it later. 

Julie Ford 

Julie "smurf came to SMU from the booney lands of Williams Lake as an innocent Gr. 10 boarder. Now 
. . Yes. she is still innocent!?! Julie's favorite pastimes include raiding School House with Liz. Lara and 
Jen and cutting heans in Liz' underwear. Julie will always be remembered for her mouth . She always 
managed to say the wrong thing (What!!!). She will never forget her excursion to Castlegar and the bus door 
(ahem. oops, sorry !). Julie also spent two weekends as a ski bunny at Whistler Blackcomb skiing with Bing 
(or was that Bong) and suntanning with Dangerous Dave. Julie's favorite sayings are "I'm bored". "Is 
there a party this weekend?", and "I hate calculus!". On a more serious note. Julie participated on the soc- 
cer team, field hockey team(s). cross country team and track and field team (running the dreaded 30(X)m). 
She also managed to become a prefect in New House. But. we will mainly remember Julie for her famous 
smile (show those dimples!), her warm personality, and her supporting friendship. Good luck next year 
Jewels, we'll never forget ya! 

Chris Fraser 

"To thine own self be true, and it must follow that thou canstnot be false to any man." 


Chris Fraser. a.k.a. Chri Fray. Mushroom do. came to SMU in Grade 10, from the frozen north of Ed- 
monton, land of eskimos and large malls. Both his Grade 10 and 11 years at SMU were uneventful. Fray 
was famous in his Grade 12 year for his mushroom do and his running talent, not to mention the SMU cross 
country arrogance, common to all great and not so great SMU cross country runners, that accompanied it. 
George tried to put an end to both the out-of-control mushroom do and the arrogance by cutting off Fray's 
long. long, long bang of speed. It didn't work. Fray continued running. 

He even won the occasional race. Just don't get your hair cut by a guy named George, even if he says that 
he's been cutting hair since high school. Fray's other accomplishments include, ummm. little else, actually. 
Fray ran. got good grades, and could always be counted on for a laugh, no matter how bad the joke was. He 
has no idea of what he wants to do in the future. In September he plans to anend UVIC or Queen's. 

Bruce Fuller 

There are two Bruce Fullers. First, the straight A student, x-country champion, singer-dancer extraor- 
dinary (Flying Dutchman. Mikado, choir) who aspires to go to McGill. Bruce makes a particularly good 
prefect, having been caught for absolutely everything. Then there is the Bruce, who holds the oral shot-put 
record, who enjoyed art with M.W., T.E. and C.C'who reacts violently when mauled by the opposite sex, 
and who used to' hang out in Caddy Bay and the Maynard Tree. Bruce has enjoyed seven long years of 
boarding at SMU. and has lived in' the Harvey, School. International. Mr. Tongue's and New Houses. He 
has experienced a very wide range of roommates, according to whatever phase he happened to be in at the 
time. Mr. Ba Run runs to win 10 (and Jen) K's. He's a Steppenwolf fan. but didn't really enjoy his magic 
carpet ndes. The Chameleon also ate alot and even once tried ginger, just to prove a point. Bruce was known 
city-wide by his "Big Banana" trench coat, which was part of one of his many phases ("Hey. it's the Who 
Guy!"). BiTice will make his wherever he goes. Good luck at McGill and see you in a Turtle Hell. 


Lara Gaede 

Lara arrived at SMU from the Gooney lands of Camrose. Alia, in Grade 10 as one of the last five girls to 
live in Harvey House. She quickly changed her "image" (hair color) and fit into SMU life. She will always 
be remembered drinking Coke, eating chocolate and trying to think of original excuses to get off games. The 
highlight of her grade eleven year was most definitely the Garibaldi Trip where she managed to burn her 
face and get a fat lip ("O.k. guys - who dropped the door on my face?"). Halloween night was also exciting 
as she managed to get caught sneaking back into the house with her roommate. 

She has been involved in music since entering SMU and will end her musical career at SMU in the pit or- 
chestra of the Mikado. 

Next year, Lara will be off to Denmark (to study??) and then she plans to return to Canada and study 
Commerce at Queen's, Western or U of A. 

John Gaines 

John, although content with rotting away in the bustling Megapolis of Christian Lake, came to S.M.U. in 
Grade 9. (It was either that or piano lessons.) John enjoyed the traditional S.M.U. experience: he flirted 
with expulsion (thanks Lord), permanently disfigured part of his body (the ear) playing rugby, got brutalized 
and beaten by prefects, whined and complained about Brown Hall food, and finally became a Prefect to 
brutalize and beat younger kids. As a bonus. John enjoyed a couple of stints on the student council, which 
showed him the futility and inefficiency of Democracy, and changed him to the right-wing extremist he is to- 
day. John's long term plans include (hopefully) studying "Liberal" Arts at the University of Pennsylvania, 
meeting Ayn Rand in person and total world domination (D.R.G.G.). 

Dan Geranazzo 

Dan grew up in downtown Manhattan and moved to the West Coast at the age of six. He came to SMU in 
grade 1 1 with real long hair and a funny walk. He has short hair now. Dan's known most for his mellow and 
casual approach to life. He never got overly excited about anything. He had a calming effect on all the 
hyperactive personalities that surrounded him. Whenever things looked bad you could always count on 
Dan's never ending reassuring calm. Dan plans to go back east and become a doctor and prescribe a lot of 
Valium. May you live as long as you wish your hair was. buddy. 

Ann Gordon 

Ann, (NOT Anne!) arrived at SMU in grade eight with the first truck load of girls. She quickly became 
known for her long skinny legs. Her height enabled her to become a member of SMU's unconquerable (!) 
volleyball, basketball and soccer teams. Ann has experienced Mr. Marchand's memorable lectures, trips to 
booming metropolises such as Burns Lake and Port McNeil, and highly regular (!) and strenuous (!) prac- 
tices with Mr. Mclntyre. This tall, thin babe will be remembered by such intellectual phrases as "I just sat 
down and went "uh" and "No! Fine!". Ann's one year of Chem (So what if I'm not taking any sciences?) 
landed her as a member of the established backbench of 87-88. and she could always be found in the back of 
math class scribbling notes to people around her. Ann also survived through the "jarbines" of Camp 
T-Bird, near crashes on the Rob II and UCUB on Garibaldi and Rock Climbing. Throughout her career at 
SMU, Ann showed a "mastery" of the saxophone. Her recent trip to Florida and Barbados was on reward 
for her devotion to SMU's Stage Band. We will always remember Ann's graceful jump from her roof into a 
rose bush and her broken wrist (from B-Ball). However, one can't tell from looking at this chick that she is a 
lean, mean eating machine. This accounts for the inhalation of caramel popcorn, pizza, those gingerbread 
men. 7-1 1 hamburgers, honeybuns . . . the list goes on! Whenever, wherever and whatever she ends up. she 
deserves the very best. Good luck in the future Ann — we'll miss ya tons! 

Tyler Hadfield 

"This sucks! When do we go?" 

Hey Bucko! This six foot devastatingly handsome, all-star athlete has graced S.M.U. with his presence for 
six years now. He has participated fully in athletic activities playing on the First XV, First XI soccer. Senior 
Boys Basketball and the backbone of the golf team. If you didn't catch sight of him streaking down the ski 
slopes at Whistler, you could probably find him stuffing food into the endless pit he calls a stomach. Ty 
scored two of the twelve points of the U.K. Rugby Tour. Although he had trouble digesting some of his big- 
ger meats, he had lots of extra time to play Lego and recuperate. By the time he returned, he was in supreme 
bowling condition. Grade 12 saw a sad moment in Tyler's life; after cleaning out the six tonnes of McD bags 
and golf balls, his parents sold the 310GX. 

Ty was forced to move the stuff from the car to the floor of his room - but the dog ate most of it so it 
wasn't a problem. 

Tyler rose to the high rank of House Captain and was a member of the prestigious Grad Committee. 
Despite all this talent, Tyler does not know what to do with it all, so he will take it all with him to UVic next 
fall and see where it takes him. Ty, what a guy. Good Luck! 

Laura Hammersley 

Laura, affectionately known as "Stat Woman", joined us at S.M.U. in grade 8, when the ratio of guys to 
girls was 5: 1 (why else would she come to a private school?). Her spunky personality and friendly charm 
won her many friends, and helped her survive trips to Camp Thunderbird (latrine? clean water? tuna nuna?), 
the Sayward Canoe Trip (or was it a truck trip?), and rock climbing. She soon proved to be an asset on the 
hockey field, and to the rowing and track and field team. She also displayed great skills in stage band (let's 
get kidnapped!, and participated in the Christmas choir (her lovely voice also led to a beautiful rendition of 
"I vow to thee my country"!). We will always remember her talent in art (what was the picture of Mr. 
Jones?), and her late entrance into Gr. 12 physics (I passed!). Laura participated in many ski trips, and 
learned to pick out nice bombacities on the ski hill. Needless to say, this obvious talent did not go unnoticed 
by such hunks as J.S. and M.G. She was hardly ever seen without her baby blue bug, except when she was 
late (it's because 1 live out in Colwood!), or when it was in the shop for "incessant stallage". Laura definite- 
ly made her mark at S.M.U. and won't be forgotten for a long, long time. Next year. UBC or UVIC will be 
blessed with her presence. Good luck, Laura - rare as is true love, true friendship is even rarer. 

Ashley Highton 

"Whether you think you can, or you think you can't 

you're right." 
- Henry Ford 

Ashley "Hair" Highton (aka Shlieben, Stud) brushed through six years at SMU acquiring only minor 
damage in his first and last year at the junior school. A rookie of their many vicious antics, he arrived clean 
and unscarred. but due to excessive amounts of cards, conckers and Saga, he left his "virgin shins" behind. 
Just after becoming accustomed to the all boys school, he was thrust into the coed world once again (Goodie 
Goodie, et Encore en fois!). In grade 9 he was a proud member of the UK Tour (Team of Martyrs), where 
although we lost all our games (it was only 35 points guys . . .) he had fun spreading Canadian friendliness, 
minding "the Gap" and gulping down Donor Kabobs. 

He made heavy contributions to many aspects on the sports scene including most of the rugby "A" teams 
and a two year stint on the First XI soccer team. He was also one of the few "Mystical Men" to work along 
side T.C. in the now lost-to-memory Tuck Shop. He had great times on the Grad Ski Trip (Why isii't 
everyone in the Jacuzzi?) as well as a nice time slicing and dicing poor old Englebert under P.G.'s watchful 
eye. Looking to the future, we will see Ashley studying medicine somewhere in the East. For now we'll just 
say we hope success and happiness follow you through life forever, my friend. 

Doris Hsu 

Doris arrived at SMU in Grade 1 1 from Taiwan. A relatively shy and quiet person, she has made 
numerous friends. 

Her interest in sports has made her a keen contributor to the Volleyball team, although she really excelled 
in roller skating and table tennis (ping pong) in her native country. Her love for rock music and watching 
"Much Music" on T.V. is the only avenue for relaxation. Although she hates Shakespeare she has a for- 
midable memory for all rock songs and the names of various rock groups. Her stronger academic courses in 
math and science subjects will find Doris embarking on an Engineering career. 

Tony Hunt 

Tony (a.k.a. Mouth and The Great Tone), began his eight year career at S.M.U. by terrorizing the Junior 
School with seasonal antics such as hockey, cards, conkers and Saga, barely escaping with only minor 
wounds (J.D.!!). After leaving B.W.A. and U.R. behind, he ventured to the Senior Campus, only to be af- 
fronted by 19 new female students. A year later, he joined the U.K. Tour rugby team as they played (and 
Lost) several games across Southern England, enjoying the fine cuisine of Pizzaria. (Four waters, please) 
and Donner Kabobs. 

His outstanding skill (Oh. is that what it was) earned him a position on all "A" teams in both soccer and 
rugby right up to the 1st XV and 1st XI (Hack' em Hard Hunt). He was also one of the last indentured Ser- 
vants under the master craftsmanship of T.C. Fond memories include the grad ski trip and the school trip to 
Mexico where he attained insurmountable levels of fun. wearing different clothes? In the future he chooses 
to pursue medicine and a career due to his excellent work, and will head back east leaving poor Englebert 
behind. Have a good one Tone. 

Kingston Ip 

Kingston, renowned for his creative conversations and baffling debates, joined us late in the game. After a 
lifetime at public school somewhere in the depths of Burnaby, he made his way to a more advanced and 
challenging scholastic career for grade 1 1 . Although Kingston wasn't blessed with the superior intellects of 
his Asian counterparts he was working on a "B" average, "What's wrong with a twenty-five percent. 

Kingston was a consistent sprinter on the track team and climbed hills on the cycling team. He could also 
be found playing hockey late on Saturday nights. Or in the weight room bench-pressing a great deal more 
than he should be able to handle. Kingston has set his mind on going back East after leaving SMU. eager to 
study anything but sciences at either McGill. Western or Carleton. I'm sure he'll fit right in with his casual 
approach to life and his insufferable need for preppiness. Well, Kingston, you shall be forever missed if not 
constantly confused. 

P.S. A Banana? 

Sir do you have a radio in your leg? 

Stephen Jackson 

"Too low they build who build beneath the stars". 

Steve, an 1 1 year veteran of SMU. began his scholastic trek with Miss Moore, and from then on didn't 
look back. It has been a long haul for Jix. but he's the survivor-type for neither the Big Pit nor runaway 
busses, (and the subsequent bloodbath) could mess his hair on the U.K. tour. After gallons of toothpaste and 
minor reconstructive surgery on hotel walls Steve returned to continue his rowing career. As a valuable 
member of the 2nd XV and the 1st XI with T.C "Slidecheck Steve" is known on the playing field as well 
as in the Senior Stage Band, where he plays the alto-sax. He has survived band tours to the far reaches of the 
earth; with Japan and the recent "Barbados paradise" tour. 

Steve can now often be seen drivmg his "citrus" Porsche around campus and practising his prowess at 
skiing, acquired during three days of intense practise on the grad ski trip. "Moguls . . . yeah sure, I guess?" 

Steve's interest in Biology has fueled his desire to become a "doctor" - Yes . . . BUT NO. His real ambi- 
tion is to make megabucks in a business career, so he can buy a tarp for his boat to keep countless large 
seabirds from cosmetically destroying the mighty Phoenix. Steve, the accomplished golfer-slash-Sears- 
model . . . what more could we want? 

Sunil Joneja 

"Understand. Kiddiwinks, that there are times, undoubtedly, when it's a kick to be alive, when life isn't 
all doubt and futility, misery and hurt but an adrenalin provider such as you find in the cold air of winter 
which you can gasp air into your lungs, feeling the air pump your body full of strength. Bringing a smile of 
confidence to your lips as it pays homage to your youth instincts. 

Now admittedly this doesn't occur too often, but when it does, well, boy, you know just as I do that us cats 
bunched together in this world, old and young, brown and cream, fighting, struggling and cruelly distanced 
from each other, are capable of both pure immortality. Yes, and extreme wretchedness. No." 

- The Boy Wonder 

Sunil or "necro" as he is known around the boarding house, came to S.M.U. as a boarder in grade 10. He 
quickly became popular with the other boarders because of his willingness to participate in every and any ac- 
tivity considered illicit by the boarding staff. Infamous for his "unusual" poster and enlightening music. 
Sunil was a major factor contributing to the perversion of dorm 44. He quickly established a shaky relation- 
ship with Mr. Drake and enjoyed his service for two RAMbunctious terms. 

■fall, dark and scary is a fitting description for this person whose future plans encompass everything from 
German Medieval Folk Dancing to the political and cultural domination of at least 4 continents. One will 
probably be able to find him struggling with the idealism of some lost cause under the guise of a member of 
human society, or creating an unpredictable bloody mess of some aspect of normality. 

Catherine Jones 

It's no secret that Cathy, as this year's ESU import, enjoys a light course load at SMU. Her exchange year 
at SMU has been spent tr\ing to decide what her future plans should be and passionately trying to avoid 
Romantic Involvement She has accomplished neither. 

The choir, a cappella groups and '"Mikado " have all benefitted from her musical talents, and her pas- 
sionate arguments with Jason and Andrew have drawn nearly as much (well, not really nearly as much) at- 
tention as her passionate endeavors with Martin which bring new meaning to the acronym PDA. (How 
large a mini's interior is! How inadaquate the defroster!) Cathy's characteristic English attitude has rubbed 
off on the rest of us (it's said she could get an "A " on any exam, if she could find the exam hall) and we're 
all a little more eccentric than we once were. This chocoholic hHI be missed when she "spins" off to 
Scotland and Aberdeen University. Until that time, we'll do our best to take the mickey out of her. Stay Pas- 
sionate. Stay English. Thankth for the memorieth. 

Beckett Jubb 

When Beckett Jubb was first thrust into SMU he was but a child in grade one. This may explain the sudden 
disappearance of his chubby cheeks in grade 2. 3. 4. As life progressed, he learned more and when first I 
met Bee. he appeared, yes. semi-intelligent. Beckett was a normal child, obedient, clean-shaven and well 
dressed - until he encountered some sort of strange. Browny-like dessert. He now drives a three tonne army 
vehicle, wears combat gear, grows stubble and has a seemingly limitless appetite for certain liquids. Beckett 
plans to attend UBC to become some sort of glorified lumberjack or something like that. Grade 12 has been 
good to Beckett; whether he has his feet up with pizza or is busy with his mighty camera (hopefullv taking 
pics for the yearbook! Ed.). Bee. may you become rich on bottle returns, and if you become bored, cut me a 
Douglas fir. 

Catherine Junick 

Miss Junkirk (as the newspaper has been known to call her) or Cathy "Yoor-ee-cheech" (as she will fondly be 
remembered by sports announcers around the province), holds as her claim to fame, the fact that she is SMU's only 
graduating baroness (Seriously, I am a baroness!). Cathy will be remembered by her close friends as Pinto woman. Bong 
Queen, and amoeba woman. Her half-decade at Si. Mike's has proven CJ lor Caih, Cathy, whatever) to be an accomplished 
athlete, musician, scholar, and friend. She will always be remembered for her ever-ready smile her will to try almost 
anything • at leas! once; her desperate attempts lo stay awake in lit class, her uncanny affinity for doughnuts and Welsh men. 
her selfless fnendship. and her unnerving keeness for Bio dissections. The laner will most likely lead her to a successful 
career in medicine (sports medicine, of course), unless her neverending interest in psychiatry proves otherwise. Cathy's 
greai love for. and devotion, to field hockey paid off this year as she helped lead SMU to its first ever B.C. championship 
title, by sconng die winning goal in the final Being a member of the hockey and basketball learns has led Cathy to such 
wonderfijl places as Bum's Lake. Agassiz, Squamish. Oliver, and Comox. We must, however mention soccer. 

Cath IS captain of this great team, and deservedly so. In grade ten Cathy survived the West Coast Trail and helped with 
the Orpheus make-up crew. She made it through Bozo U, survived an incredible sun bum on Garibaldi, and was a member 
of the J C. stage crew. In grade 12. Cathy proved to be a valuable snident council and dance committee member, prefect 
(love those burgundy blazers!) and (once again), a member of the Mikado stage crew. As long as nobody hits the back end 
of Cathy's "limosine" ("But it's not die right year, believe me!"), the world will probably be witness to a rising star in die 
near future. Good luck, Cathy, we'll miss vou. 

Marina Kasapi 

This year's Head Girl and resident female Baryshnikov came to SMU with the first boatload of girls and 
immediately established herself as a force to be reckoned with in the leftist world. She claims to have been 
bom 20 years too late, but Dave is quite sure she was bom at the exact right time. Marina has been on the 
Student Council for three years. 

A bizarre and tragic accident during soccer resulted in a back injury in grade 9. This prevented Marina 
from achieving her dream of being an SMU athlete, but Marina has managed (somehow!) to struggle 
through. She is now a critically acclaimed dancer, and naturally is always dieting, with diet fruit, diet 
yogurt, low-calorie water and sodium-reduced air. Marina is convinced that male dancers are not gay. but 
then again, she is quite sure that Baghwan Shree Rajneesh is really the second coming. Another one of her 
notions is that Liberal Arts is the leg to a successful future. She'll test out this hypothesis next year when she 
enters Princeton. Good Luck! 


Christina Kay 

"Shall I go off to South America? 
Shall I put out my ship to sea? 
Or get in my cage and be lions and tigers? 
Or - shall I be only Me?" 

Christopher Robin 

Christina "K" came to SMU in grade XI from some public school, Lansdowne seems to be the popular belief. If asked, however, she 
will insist that she is a bom again private schtxil junky. Chnstina has proven to be an academically sound student, and there have been

Lionel Keene 

Lionel, or "roach" as he is Icnovvn to his friends, was recruited in grade 10 for his musical talents on the 
trumpet, which was exploited to the max by D. Mackay. However, 3 years under the supervision of Maestro 
was enough to seriously degrade Mr. Keene's musicality to an elevator music level. 
He took delight in deviating from the normal teenage thought-paths, always being sure to point out the truly 
bizarre and disgusting facts of life. In class, he may not have been an academic asset, but his classroom ac- 
tivities, such as what were experienced in Captain Kayal's Probs and Stats class, proved him to be a staff 
favorite. Lionel and his friend "rat" were the driving force behind Drake, a favorite pastime of the grade 10 
School House boarders. Although several of his classmates aspire to being economists, doctors, lawyers, 
and entering exciting fields in commerce. Lionel has plans to become a motorcycle Grand Prix road-racer 
representing U.S.A. in Europe. Good luck in your quest for the fast bikes and fast women. Roach! 

David Klassen 

Dave has spent eleven long years at S.M.U.. and could be termed a lifer. He has been active in rugby since 
grade five, and always gave his best. In his final year Dave played on the reknowned 2nd XV. Along with 
rugby. Dave enjoyed the "good life" on the weekends, if you know what he means. Dave plans to go to 
Uvic next year, and major in big bucks. Maybe he'll own a few oil fields in the years to come. Last of all, 
one day Dave plans to tour the Baha on his mean XL600 motorcross. 

Neil Klompas 

Neil first came to SMU in grade 4. after schooling in England. A native of Edmonton, Neil left to sample the 
public school system for grades 6 to 10. but returned triumphant for grades 1 1 and 12. Affectionately known 
as "Flounder", he joined the Special Forces 5th XV in grade 1 1 as one of the three hookers. Neil always 
managed to smile, and enjoyed all of the rewards of SMU. He probably will never forget the 87-88 New 
Year's Ski Trip, or one birthday when he was "showered" with friendship. Neil plans to study at UVIC 
before heading down east to pursue a career in law. Good luck wherever your path may lead . . . 


Dev Kothary 

Look to the future and all the mistakes you 

"Forget about the past and all the mistakes you"ve made . 
can make then." "I need a weekend" - A Monday quote. 

Dev. alias Rat. has a historical significance of being among the last to graduate from SMU's junior school 
before co-ed racked the halls of this educational institution. His time at the junior campus was highlighted by 
the responsibilils of prefect and as a member of the 1st XV. However, any sign of responsibility had 
deteriorated m his first few years of senior campus life, rapidly. In grade 10 we saw Dr. Roach and Mr. Rat 
perform several "experiments" - in search of intellectual enlightenment, "of course". Among his pastimes 
were long, very long hot showers, pondering procrastination and perfecting the art of doing virtually no 
work AND achieving good marks; all the result of six years at SMU. Dev could frequently be seen on the 
slopes of Whistler Blackcomb pulling extended penods of airtime. 

A true naturalist, he was always looking for those shapely creatures of the wilderness which seem to 
abound in that area. 

After graduation Dev hoped to follow his life long ambition of studying the culture of the Orient but when 
he realized that this would involve work, he decided to "study" beach life and the changes in swimwear 
fashion as "marine biologist" and for "intellectual enlightenment, of course": in other words, engineering. 
See va. Rat! 

Jennifer Lament 

"1 get by with a little help from my friends." 

Jenny's glowing countenance first appeared at S.M.U. in grade 8. From the very first she showed herself 
to be a girt of immense talent. Not onl> was she able to light a darkened room by a mere blush but she also 
demonstrated a superior field hockey ability which sent her not only to the U.K. but also to the interior of 
B.C. where she helped to win the Provincial Championship. A founding member of the Back Row Bunch in 
Bio., Jenn studiously avoided all contact with her fetal pig - "Mr. Bogus". In grade 1 1 Jenny proved her 
driving skills when, in one fell swoop, she showed how a poor defenseless Honda was to survive a Mach 4 
sideswipe from a rabid Volkswagon Bug But after all, she had a good reason. 1 mean we were bugging her 
about . . . Jenny is one of a group of three who made choir history by handing the best choir tape ever Her 
"musical" exploits continued when she became Master of All Props (well four, really .) in the Mikado. Jenn 
is also enough of an actress to be one of the best assassms L and J have ever seen (although the accent needs 
a little work.) Keep your Aura up, Jenn, and keep smiling. 

Rory Langran 

One of the many Glenlyon students who saw the light. Ror arrived at S.M.U. in Grade 8. One of the larger 
members of Grade 8, he became one of the "4 fanies and Kai." A seasoned veteranofPiete ski trips. Ror is 
noted for his rather unique skiing style, and the fashion statement he makes on the slopes. During Grade 1 1 
he journeyed to the Far EEast on the Rugby Tour, quickly learning the useful phrase "I'm allergic to this" in 
Japanese, he was able to avoid many Japanese culinary delights such as sea slugs! Rory continued his rugby 
career in Grade 12, not only playing for the 4th XV, but affectionately known as MOM, he coached the 
"elite" Dogs of War. During the offseason, Rory has toned down his dynamic lifestyle and now gets his ex- 
ercise curling and driving the "Hearse" to 7-1 1 for Super Big Gulps. Next year Ror hopes to head out either 
to the east for university or to England for a change of surroundings. 

But wherever Ror turiis he will seek success - either that or a Super Big Gulp! Good luck for the future! 

Leigh Large 

Leigh Large a.k.a. (The Man With the VID). A native Victorian, although a nasty rumour has it that he 
has origins in the backwoods of Sooke, Leigh has been at SMUS since grade 7. A member of the infamous 
group of the Four Fatties and Kai, Leigh, the largest of the group, easily earned his place! But during the 
summer of grade 10 a remarkable transformation occured - he shrank, and from his shoulder sprouted a VID 

Since then it has not left his eagle-eye, making many believe the VID is actually an integral part of his 
body. His time has not been wasted; already two movies have emerged. His creative talents have also been 
displayed in his roles in the Mikado and the Physicists. Also a choir member, he admits to being a tenor 
(whatever biological implications this may have!). Next year. Leigh will travel to the States to study 
business. Clever fellow, he had the choice of studying at Dartmouth or the Wharton Business at Penn - he 
chose Wharton (the bener to hasten his rise to the top of the Wall Street pyramid). Anyway, whatever Leigh 
turns to, he'll be successful - either that, or he'll make a movie of it! Good luck for the future!. 


Allun Lee 

Allun originated from the tropical island of Singapore where he spent inosi of his schooling, and it was not 
until grade eleven that he joined the ranks of the SMU achievers. Allun made the best out of the two years he 
had in SMU. An excellent and dedicated student, he spent many hours in the strenuous task of lying in bed 
and was often seen dozing in Calculus 12 (Harvey). However, he did try to do his part in representing the 
school in badminton and swimming. He hopes to go to UBC in pursuit of a degree in the field of commerce. 
He found SMU a big difference from his former school ACSS (American Chicken Soup School) and he will 
never forget the good times he had in SMU. Good luck. Allun. 

EUie Lee 

"Empty vessels make the most sound" 

Ellie Lee? Is she the small girl who always has a smile on her face? Yes. Ellie is a boarding student from 
the far east - Taiwan R.O.C. She came to Canada to experience a different style of life and to meet people. 
For the past one and a half years, she has been making many jokes because of her poor English, has learned 
not to cry when there are hindrances in front of her. has had fun with her friends in the residence and on 
campus, has met and observed people, and most importantly, she has learned how to hold on to her 

Ellie is a hard-working student, though she doesn't think so. Her math ability has won her prizes and she 
shares op math with the guys. She's not only good at science though, in the school activities, she was in the 
chorus and the musical. For the rest of her weekends, she spends hours and hours in the Art room. 

In the future, this Chinese girl plans to enter U.B.C. because it is "closest to home". Asked what she feels 
about spending two years at SMU. she said "Well, I'm very lucky that there are always some good friends 
around me, helping me and cheering me up. They help me to enjoy my life at SMU." But Ellie. you forget 
that God helps those who help themselves. 

Peter Leeha 

"This is most brave" 
Shakespeare. "Hamlet" II, 2 

"That was a mighty brave thing you did . . ." 

In walks Pete at 8:21 am - another day, another missed tutorial. Peter (a.k.a. Gurpreet) swam over to Vic- 
toria from Coquitlam to join SMU. in grade 1 1. After taking a mere one year to adjust to "prep" school, 
he began enjoying his grad year. Best known for his activities in swimming, he captained the school team all 
the way to the Provincials in grade 12. while also playing for the Second XI soccer team. Pete's worst 
enemies in grade 11 became his best friends in grade 12: GusI GusII and "Ooooh that Boy ..." Best 
memories in S.M.U. include those late nights in New House, the Bronco, and chillin' out with everyone 
who walked into his crowded dorm. Next year Pete has a choice between Trinity College, Queen's, 
Western, or U.B.C. - but will probably spend the next two years deciding where to go. Wherever he ends 
up, though, we're sure to find him blasting his rap music, waiting for someone else to make his next 

Laura Lewin 

After escaping the clutches of Norfolk, Laura sought refuge at S.M.U. in grade 8. She has become an en- 
thusiastic participant in the racquet sports, including earning a spot on the badminton team. Over the last 5 
years, she has been an avid singer with the choir. Having a kind and agreeable disposition, she is often 
described as being "quiet", which for those who know her well, is difficult to believe! We know Laura 
learned to drive at YD but she obviously never learned to back up, which led to 5 'macho guys " lifting her 
car (the only rear wheel drive Hyundai in Victoria) out of a ditch. She has always enjoyed Math with e\ 
cellent results in math contests, and next year, plans to go on to study commerce at either Western or U-Vic 
Good luck with all the future holds for you, Laura. 

James Lockwood 

"Oh baby baby, it's a wild world.'" 
Cat Stevens 

James came to S.M.U. in grade eight from the cheesy town of Armstrong. He and his partner in cheese Al 
Muir, descended into the ranks of S.M.U. and have never looked back. 

It look Daemon only one and a half years in New House to find a roomate he actually liked. "Nolan, you 
are a SAVIOR!" With an awesome roomate. a fridge and "housekeeper" status, nothing stopped James 
from becoming an amiable bully. 

He could be seen on weekends either dining at Victoria's best eateries with Hani and Homa or enjoying 
the simple pleasures with everybody else. 

Although the "Gary shuffie" and Thursday afternoon chem tests barely kept him awake long enough to 
graduate, Jimmy hopes to experience the grand institutions of Queens or UBC next year. 

Although he was sometimes misunderstood and not totally aware of the situation, his "We have to be back 
in nfteen minutes. Jeez. I'm dead!" will be missed. 

Ciao dude 

Nolan Magnus 

Rollin Nolan Magnus (a.k.a. Nolle) arrived at SMU in grade 8 from the mighty Atlantis of B.C.. Saltspr- 
ing Isle. His friendly attitude (along with his sheer size1 soon won the respect and friendship of the boarders. 
Nolan's athletic prowess landed him on the rugby team where he progressed from the junior colts to the bat- 
tling 3rd XV (his speciality was saving the lives of scrum-halves). 

As well. Nolan was a member of the school's basketball team, again advancing from the juniors to the 

Nolan's friendly, understandable nature landed him the honourable role as a Harvey House prefect in 
grade 1 1 : this led to his role as Head of House in grade 12. Nolan was also a member of the purple club and 
loved staking out the lunch lines. Fond memories include his wonderful adventures in grade 10. his all-night 
cram sessions (8 litres of Coke?), forgetting the latrine spade and his admiration for a certain barbarian 
(whom he read about avidly). But most of all Nolan will be remembered for his cheery outlook on life and 
his always-ready-lo-understand attitude. Nol. best of luck in the future and thanx for everything. 

Sean Mahoney 

When smoking salmon with the locals became tiring. Sean came to SMU in grade 9 from the booming 
metropolis of Sooke. Since daydreaming was not a sports option "Mahone" was an avid participant in 
track, rugby and D.O.W. During track season, Sean rarely missed his human targets while throwing the 
javelin. The fact that he never collided with goal posts in rugby is a point of "blind-luck". Sean is one of 
those special few who can't cheat at pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey. Mahoney's pride and joy was an old heap of 
rust in the form of a station wagon affectionately dubbed "The Beast". Mahoney persisted that the holes In 
the floor and the ten pounds of rust lost everytime the Beast went through the auto car wash were just 
"character lines". In his final year. Sean found that his main field of interest, art. could be quite lucrative 
doing jobs for the Blue Devils and UVic. "Huh. oh. my alarm didn't go off. met the ears of almost every 
teacher in his SMU career. Speaking of careers, working in the film industry is a future prospect for Sean 
but first he'll spend a few years at either UVic or U of T. 

Jann Margison 

"It's a dog eat dog world out there and it feels like I'm wearing Mllkbone underwear". 


Jann partook in 12 years of S.M.U. ... He is so very proud to say '^h of his life have been with the school 
With this incredible knowledge he hopes to attend UVIC or Al's Mechanic Club. You can't say Jann's a 
quitter but when he realized he was the only one doing a paper route with a car he gave the chance of finan 
cial aid to another young lad. Jann was a star on and off the field. Academically, he made it to University In 
his final year, he helped keep the cup at home, playing for the 1st XV. In B-Ball, Jann was the most intense 
player in SMU's history, and he won the golden brick award for his unique shooting style. Jann wants in 
make it to the Big Leagues someday (have fun selling weiners! Ha Ha). Who of us will ever forget Jann's m- 
credible hairdos and his unbelievable driving skills. 


Sandra Martell 

The glamorous Sandra Martell came to S.M.U. in gr. 11 from various institutions including Glenfolk. 
Soon Sandra had enchanted many members of Grad '88 including some of whose names escaped her: "Uh, 
isn't the name Dave Swan?" Her social standing continued to skyrocket with parts in J.C. and the Mikado 
which featured Sandra's formidable dancing skill. Indeed, her dancing skill was so great, she received a 
scholarship from Stages Dancing School and was the leader of jazz dancing. When not bopping off 
somewhere with Michelle to let her mhibitions go, or cuddling up with Paul Mochrie, Sandra can be seen in 
either Wenman or the field asking certain good sports for help in math or showing off her skill in her favorite 
language, French. This explains why Sandra is heading off to Belgium next year on an exchange. She will 
follow this up with studies in the east on fashion or interior design, Sandra, don't ever lose that sweet and 
friendly personality. Au revoir, ma petite. 

Mary McLeish 

Mary joined SMU in gr. 8 from Norfolk House and is a proud member of the "Lifers" . She was quick to 
show her vocal skills in choir, a tradition which she continued throughout her SMU career. She combined 
her vocal talents with her dramatic/ dancing prowess and took part in four of the school's major stage pro- 
ductions. W.S.S.. Orpheus. J.C.S.S. and the Mikado. 

It wasn't until her last year at SMU that she snatched up the Big Guy/ J.C. himself. Shreddy 's major claim 
to fame is her incredible Jockette Status, She is an outstanding field hockey player and was on the B.C. 
Champions First XI. Mary will never forget Mr. Goodwin or the friendly natives in Squamish and her ex- 
periences with Mrs. Gaiga in Burnaby. Mary was an avid and excellent Badminton player. She was known 
as the "Master of the Court" and played a mean doubles game with V.W. and B.M. She even clipped the 
man with amazing natural ability and expertise (M.D.) in a close exhibition match up (Final score: Mary l.'i, 
the unknown geek 1). Mary had a successful track career until an unfortunate "tumble" curtailed her last 
season. It seemed as though Mary had an "all-year" pass to the hospital as she became known as "shvee- 
ty?" to the other patients. Ironically, or maybe conveniently enough Mary has decided to pursue a hospital 
career and become a nurse. She will try to (but never) forget; physics with Steve, especially when he got 
moved for beating her; or art with Tyler and John. "Tee hee hee" and of course John's masterpieces; and 
MR. BULL & MR. WHALE who never got the world wide adoration they deserved. 

Taylor McLeod 

Taylor, A.K.A. Flipper, Rebel, Maverick, fro and whaler came to SMU in grade 9 after fleeing NHS. 
Although a budding field hockey player, Taylor left the field hockey world. She was especially known for 
"lie down in a semi-circle, your mouth guard will protect you!" Instead of field hockey, Taylor turned to 
dancing for a second lime w inning a scholarship to Stages Dance School after her hip-swinging performance 
as a soul girl in J.C.S.S. Her frequent reminices of Sunriver, Hornby Island, and Oak Bay Grads were much 
appreciated as was her oil-popped popcorn with minimal butter. Apart from her infatuation with all things 
cowboy, Tay has been. well, a good buddy. Taylor is still a year behind the rest of the world as she missed 
one New Year's and refuses to believe it went ahead without her. After surviving Garibaldi and Carrie's 
"What a buzz". Taylor aspires to attend UBC (?!) next year unless love drags her somewhere else. 

Gino Merino 

Gino "Hands" Merino entered SMU in Gr. 9 and made an instant impression with stereo on certain 
prefects. After his older bro departed for warmer climes. Gino really made his mark on society. In rugby he 
was aptly named "Speedy Gonzales ". He played 1st XV rugby (also 2nd XV) in Gr. 12 and he was goal- 
keeper for 1st XI soccer for 2 years. His musical career spanned 2 years as a choir boy (tone deaf? just a lit- 
tle!) and an apostle in J.C.S.S. His quest to dine at as many Orange Julius" as possible led him to sunny 
Calgary (this is really cold). But he survived his polar experience and will grad as he hoped, crazy but 
happy . 

Adios Amigo 

Elizabeth Middleton 

"When you cry, you cry alone - but when you laugh. The Whole World laughs with you!" 

Eddy joined the ranks of S.M.U. in gr. 8 and quickly made her presence known by leaving her mark on 
Tyler's head an acquiring the name "Brutal Beth". This pretty little heartbreaker is well known for her 
machine gun laughter and bright smiley face and is one of the most talented girls in the graduating class, 
makmg a huge impact on the athletic scene. She is a proven jockette, being a prominent member of the first 
.\I field hockey champions; a strong cross-country runner; an incredible track and field runner; and also an 
avid tennis, squash, and badminton player. With all this ovious talent she could not help but attain the rank 
of House Captain of Barnacle. Off the courts and on the slopes, this social animal/ ski bunny is respectfully 
known as the "Screamer" or the "Sexy Streak." She was often seen tearing down the slopes ending in 
death defying crashes. Beth lent her skill to three school plays and represented the class on the Grad Com- 
mittee But beware the wrath of Beth - she may seem meek and mild behind that flute . . . watch out Picasso 
. . . (or Zorro - your choice). From all of us who have received so much happiness from your pretty smile 
and bubbly laughter . . . thank you - you are a true friend. The very best of luck to you Elizabeth. 

Kelly Millar 

Kelly entered SMU two months into grade eleven after having "a minor difference of opinion" with her 
previous headmistress. She quickly became known for her monopoly on black clothing and time spent with a 
certain E.S.U. student. 

Claiming to have slept only 2'/: hours all of first term, she broke new records in boarding for gallons of 
diet coke consumed in one evening. Kelly, who will forever be paranoid of research findings on Aspartane 
hopes to study sciences at the University of Toronto or enter the arts and science program at McMaster 
University to complete her pre-med requirements. We wish her the best of luck in the future. 

Mathew Mills 

"ft's sweet, don't let anybody tell you different." 

Matt joined our happy class back in grade eight, where he fit right in with such catch phrases as "Yong. 
gimme some food or shut up\" 

Matt is actually quite a sensible guy who just happens to like giving and receiving concussions on and off 
the rugby field, and anywhere else. He excelled in Samuel-type rugby, playing 2nd row on the English 
rugby tour, the 3rd XV. and the Dogs of War. Matt also succeeded in having THE messiest room in 
residence for three years running. This includes living with fungus growths, mice and rats. His other ac- 
complishments include eating whole burgers or pieces of pizza in one bite, having multi-colored hair and 
never, or seldom, getting caught for anythmg even though he might deserve it. Matt was always roving to a 
party, but he was also there to help with a question or problem. Next year. Matt plans to unleash this urge 
and sympathetic ear on the U of A in hopes of becoming a dentist. He also hopes to join some African 
bushmen and hunt many a wild beast. Whether it's filling a cavity or pulling down a rhino, grab a tiger by 
the tail and enjoy. Matt. We wish you every success in everything you do. with one bit of advice - never go 
skidooing with me again. Ciao. Dude. 

Paul Mochrie 

Hokely Mokely came to SMU in grade 8 and had a slow, quiet start to his career. It was only the next year 
after his tour to the UK that he began to pick up the pace. It was on this tour that Paul developed his taste for 
toothpaste and for bowling (a skill that came in handy back home). Paul has had an impact on SMU athletics, 
from 1st XI soccer to being the most bloodied member of the cycling team; No Guts No Glory Mochrie even 
survived a head-on collision at 150km/h with a white Pinto. Due to his all-round extra-special guy attitude 
he was appointed to the coveted position of prefect and Wenman House Vice-Captain. 

His career at SMU has been highlighted by Commonwealth Essays containing no truth whatsoever, his ir- 
resistible salesman technique, co-founding the Ian Ball Facist Fan Club, as well as being one of the few to 
participate in the world-famous SMU rowing technique correctional facility at Elk Lake. B.C. On to UBC. 
commerce, etc. for this man (sans Martell) but in the words of the immortal bard "Come one. come all". 


James Moore 

Having endured 6 grueling years of the institution known as SMU (Site of the Mentally Unstable), James 
has made it to Grade 12. The legacy began in Grade 7 with the "Private School Experience" (The brochure 
did mention something about a heated indoor pool!) He did after all have a fairly good time. As grades were 
attained and cynicism grew due to the fact that he finally passed someone who shall remain nameless. Fellow 
students started to realize a name and personality were attached to him. James participated in such sports as 
rugby, badminton and tennis; and gave, for the most part, all he could to each and everyone who needed it 
(No fee tutoring, right Beth?) James also was the proud author of the thesis "Optomism: A Way of Life, 
Pessimism: The Road to Hell and I'm On It". Among those who attempted to turn James from the path of 
cynicism were Mr. Bennett (a great person to have known); and the ever venerable and sage Mr. Cummings 
(a teacher of English with the gift of foresight). Overall, I think James had a fairly pleasant stay at this in- 
stitution - learning a lot, and earning the title of "Out Patient". 

Bryony Moorman 

Tall, long-haired, and unmistakably English, Bryony Moorman came to SMU with the first wave of grade 
8 girls. She had the fortune (?) to wind up in the same grade as Jon, her younger brother. The last four years 
have therefore been whirlwind of "friendly" sibling rivalry. 

An active musician. Bryony has long played the cello. She is one of the last remaining stalwarts in the 
SMU string ensemble. Her contributions to the orchestra and its activities (e.g. Mikado) have been much ap- 
preciated. Her glory with the SMU Aerobics team has also not gone unnoticed. Bryony will, however, really 
be remembered for her particularly correct English attitudes and behavior. Good luck in the future. Bryony. 
Stay calm and collected. Stay English. 

Johathon Moorman 

Jon came to SMU in grade seven, and is still suffering from the long-lasting effects of Mr. Ponic's English 
class He manages, however, to conceal his true identity most of the time, and comes across as a rather nice 
chap. Jon suffered two major injuries in his grade eleven year: the first to his leg, which cut his rugby season 
rather short, and the second to his hair, which was cut even shorter (skinhead). Still, he managed to play as a 
lock forward on both the first and second rugby teams in grade twelve, and had a brief but exciting career on 
the first basketball team. As far as academics went, Jon was fairly pleased with his performance, but he has 
yet to achieve the feat of coming to French on time ... He was first violin in the school orchestra and in Or- 
pheus. J.C. and the Mikado, and hopes to confinue his musical career in university. 

Jon will be going to England next year on one of those infamous exchanges, and hopes to attend Turn- 
bridge school, where he will do as little work as possible. Meanwhile, he continues to wear his purple 
prefect's blazer, terrorize grade nines and maintain a generally peaceful existence. 

Kajola Moore wood 

Over the past four years Kajola has changed from a meek and mild-mannered girl into a slightly 
outrageous woman. In Grade 9 she might have been frightened by the stuffed black chicken that graced 
Harvey House but not in grade II. Kajola isn't just a fun-loving gal, she also has talent. In Orpheus, 
J.C.S.S., and the Mikado, she was down in the pit making beautiful music with the "light". Unfortunately, 
her talent does not extend to rec. badminton. Kajola has always had a problem with her knees and she often 
pulled muscles. The most memorable of which was when she was sitting in chapel, doing absolutely 
nothing. Unfortunately, her injuries did not prevent her from participafing in the "nature trek to hell". 
Well, I hope you well in industrial design and remember, it will never rain on us again. 

Alastar Muir 

Al "the wizard" joined us from the cheesy town of Armstrong. He made new friends quickly by fooling 
everyone with that innocent face of his. Al was one of the few guys who was privileged with being able to fit 
into a tuba case or a school locker. Al didn't emerge until the latter years when he exploded on to the social 
scene Needless to say. things haven't been the same since. Al has participated in rugby ever since he first 
arrived here. He earned a position on the infamous Special Forces in Grade 1 1 and in Grade 12 was with the 
undefeated 3rd XV. Al was also known for his amazing skiing abilities which ranged from cliff jumping to 
psycho tucking. 

In Grade 12, Al was promoted to the great heights of prefecting. Guess the innocent look got em again, 
Al. Al is not quite sure of what career he wants to pursue he will either go to U.B.C. or to somewhere in the 
East. Whether it was participating in a friendly game of rugby, designing houses of the future, or gathering 
for a social event on the mountain, Al always brought with him a flair of imagination which is so uniquely 
his own. 

Yohann Narain 

Yohann (A.K.A. Gus) was imported to S.M.U. from Fiji for his soccer skills, which has helped the 1st XI 
win for two years. Anyone who knows him well knows that he scored a double hat-trick in Grade 1 1 (for 
those don't, well you know now). Yohann will take from S.M.U. memories of seeing Rodrie ("Yohann. 
boy, that earring, you look like a Pansy ") Samuels staring al him, while he climbed through his window 
after curfew. And then there was the Grad Ski Trip where he amazed us all by showing us the thousands of 
different ways to wipe out on the ski slopes (and in the cabin, but not in the same state). Actually, he turned 
out to be quite the crazy, but good, skier. Yohann has told many of us that he actually enjoys writing tests 
and exams, but we wonder how this is possible. He has not been seen studying ever since the snooker table 
was bought for International House. However, there are rumors that he either skips the test, or he awakens 
at the crazy hour of four o'clock. 

His goals . . . strangley enough are only to beat Ashley and Tanya in a physics test and his future, well . . . 
to study business or something similar, down under. Wotcha Yohann, the girls are gonna miss U. 

Marvin Nicholson 

"Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it." 

Marv came to St. Michaels in grade eleven and. amazingly enough, he continued on through grade twelve. Originally 
from the east, namely Toronto, Marv came to the booming metropolis of Victoria in 1987; some of his first words to his 
parents went something like this, '"O.K. the joke's over, now let's go back to Toronto!" As time went on, Victoria sort of 
grew on him and now he considers it home. Actually before attending S.M.U. Marvin spent two weeks attending a local 
high school in the cit>'. but unfortunately a spot opened up at S.M.U. and he slid into it. Marv showed up occasionally to at- 
tend some classes in grade 1 1 , but for the most part couldn't be considered Mr. School Spirit. More recently, however, he 
has joined the social community at S.M.U. and is enjoying it immensely. Man' is famous for "The Look" (this needs no 
explanation), it was this that terrorized the female population of S.M.U. Marv is known also for his "spotless" driving 
record, and how he doesn't have one. AH Marv had to say on this topic was. "I don't exactly speed, Ijust drive a little faster 
than most people." As far as athletics go. Marvin has established himself in the S.M.U. basketball record lxH>ks for such 
things as blocked shots, earning him the nicknames. "Sultan of Swat" or Marv "The Eraser" Nicholson. 

In fact. Marvin led Vancouver Island in blocked shots, in the senior boys AAA basketball league. Even though Marv 
never got the chance to dunk in a game, who could forget the show he put on during the warm-up. a literal smorgasbord of 
dunks. Marv plans to head to University of Western Ontario or Carleton University and further both his education and 
basketball career. 

Jennifer Mirolson 

Jen, another St. Margaret's escapee arrived in grade 10 and quickly settled in. French (huit heures moins 
le quart) and Physics (I've got paper!) won't easily be forgotten. Jen's laugh (I can't remember, but it was 
really funny!) often brought smiles to those around her. On the Out-trip she'll be remembered for dumping 
the only "good" food in the sand (it was an accident, okay?!) and climbing over the rocks in such a "calm" 
manner (HA!). An avid tennis player, Jen was always prepared (anyone have a racket I could borrow? . . .) 
The France trip was memorable . . . and the Mexico trip will be a blast! Fumre plans include travelling to 
far-away places and becoming a wealthy Chartered Accountant (well you know, it's not just for the money . 
. .) Good luck, you'll make it! 


Borna Noureddin 

At first sight. Boma seems like a vei^ quiet, resetted individual. He has been a winner of many scholar- 
ships (including BCTV). has done well in math contests, maintains fairly good grades, and is known more or 
less to be. well - a pacifist. Boma has also played major roles in numerous school plays (well, maybe only a 
few . . . O.K. he played second violin in two of them). Yet underneath this young violinist lies a religious so- 
called "'terrorist" (for no apparent reason) who spends his time plaving poker until the wee hours of school- 
nights, working at a SHELL gas station (no this is not subliminal advertising for SHELL), attempting to be a 
star skier and being a general menace to society by driving with people on the roof of his car. In short. Boma 
IS a "closet rebel". Although he has never been east of Vancouver in Canada, he knows there must be 
somewhere on the other side of the Rockies bener than Victoria (and SHELL) so that is where he is planning 
to go to university. 

Ryan O'Neill 

"When you're driving with Ryan the scenery moves by pretty fast. If you don't look around every once in 
awhile you could miss it." Ryan alias "Crip" came to S.M.U. in grade 9 from St. Andrew's. He im- 
mediately showed his deftness in track, soccer and rugby, catapulting him to fame in the B.C.'s. 1st XI and 
the 1st XV. However, through these sports he accumulated an extraordinary list of injuries, resulting in his 
nickname. He became a fanatic believer in Murphy's Law. "If anything can go wrong, it will go wrong ", 
which he seemed to prove every chance he got. One of his favourite past times in grade 10 was executive 
meetings, wheeling and dealing of the DM Corporation. Unfonunately a vicious takeover scandal resulted 
in an immediate liquidation of assets by P.G Ryan could be seen cruising with T.C. in his T.A. making in- 
teresting designs on the road with his tires, among other things. The only break in his Murphy's Law is his 
strange magical avoidance of speeding tickets. 

Speaking of law enforcement, he plans on taking his avoidance of the law to the limit by taking a course in 
Criminology at Camosun College and Simon Eraser University. So I guess this is farewell to Mr. O'Neill In 
the future, we will see him behind a badge or behind bars with crutches or without, only time will tell. Chov. 
from your pals. 

Jennifer Pelland 

Jennifer Pelland, known as "Jen", came to SMU in grade 1 1 . She was happy to get out of the hick-town 
of McLennan. Alberta and made her presence known in the dorms with her loud comments and singing. 
Jen's fondest memory of grade 12 was the all nighter with Karin. singing "Joy to the World" the moming 
after, and trying to wake up Anita, her roomie. Her dorm was the most frequently visited by male persons, 
some of whom she had never seen before. She was often seen mnning around with Tanya, her bosom buddy. 
Jen's pet peeves were Brown Hall and men, both of which she tried to avoid but never succeeded. She loved 
going to "Pag's" with Karin, having "just one more", Fogg 'n' Sudds with Tanya, having "just one 
more" and conversing with strangers. Jen dreams of being a plastic surgeon - she will be going to U of T 
next year. She'll always be remembered for her collection of pigs and throwing her rat out the window. We 
will never forget her bright personality and her never-ending sense of fun. S'longI 

Karin Pfitzner 

Although Karin was bom in a small town in Holland (Wowl how exciting!) her parents decided to move to 
a small town in B.C. (gee, how boringl) called Langley. To say the least, she was quite happy to leave 
"Shrubville" and join the SMU crowd in grade II. Karin. usually tormented with such nicknames as 
"Pfitz", "Pfugly" or "Puh-fitz-nur", loves to spend most of her time with Jann and oero cookie blizzards. 
Jen. Homa and Anita will never forget her goldfish, with which she nev er had any luck. Some of her fondest 
memories are her eighteenth birthday with Jen at Pag's as well as staying up all night with Jen and fnends 
and then attempting to sing "Joy to the World" the moming after! She will also never forget dancing 
idiotically on the beach while Jann "Conversed with a stray dog"! Karin intends to further her education 
close to home, either at U Vic or UBC where she will study languages and business. Everyone will always 
remember her funny faces and her brilliant smile. S'long Kare! 


Christopher Phelps 

Chris (A.K.A. Choips or Digger) first came to S.M.U. in Grade 7. Once here he made a name for himself 
in various pursuits. In grade 8. he hung out. taking long walks to discuss matters of great importance such as 
"Suzie" and "Rosie"" (we all know who won the war of the roses, don't we Chrisl). He then decided that 
things weren't as groovy here as they could be and left to enjoy grade 9 in public school, returning in grade 
10 in a more mature state of mind. "Accidently?" lighting his bed on fire ("Something Burning?", "No. 
nothing's burning . . . Oh *!!*) was one of the more infamous tricks of that year. Grade 1 1 was spent in Mr. 
T's house with Fro. Fray and Weirdo Zen Freak and was a memorable year of late night T.V.. pizza and 
hamburger wall decorations, parrots in the freezer, empty cupboards and sinks full of dirty dishes. Exam 
time and paper floors were particularly interesting. Chris basically rejoined boarding life in grade 12 to live 
with Muff. Rob or whatever Potter. He became involved with the school musical and "The Flying Dutch- 
man" opera, worked hard (?) and partied hard. 

Chris has been at S.M.U. for far too long and has taken to reading Weirdo-Freak books and hence has 
been granted the prestigious title of "closet messiah". Live life as you'd love to. 

Ruth Platts 

"Root" escaped St. Margaret's and arrived here in grade 8. Although known for leaving out words when 
she spoke, the message usually came across clearly (well so what, I mean "some" people don't even 
listen!). Choir was "fun" (let's tr\ the box-step ... oh no, not another CHOIR TAPE!). Chinese New Year 
proved to be mteresting and very educational, "this is called lettuce . . .". Aerobics will be sorely missed 
(HA!) and Ruth's unique tennis talent which was displayed last year will never be forgotten (fence climbing 
anyone? . . .). Remember the 6-day "Trek to Hell-and-Back". wall paper paste, shaky knees, dancing on 
the beach, floating clouds and being able to ride in the "Mobile" and stay calm at the same time. Ruth plans 
to be a lawyer (look out Superior Court!). Whatever you do we know you'll do your best (as always). 

Michelle Pollard 

It was just seconds before the 1st class of Grade 9 that Michelle signed a contract with John Schaffter 
allowing her to attend school whenever she didn't feel like playing tennis. She deeply regretted such a deci- 
sion after a few days in the rain and the same Chipwich tee shirt at Camp Thunderbird - but she survived the 
ordeal to manage the prestigious Club Pollard in later years. Although she didn't write an entrance exam. 
Patsy's scholastic skills are a legend; a member of the Fab Four and aconquerer of Grade 11 German. Itwas 
once rumoured that she played grass hockey for the 2nd XI but there was a mouth-guard on the field that 
blocked the view . The vast majority of her time, however, was devoted to tennis and she played for the elite 
almost-B.C champ team of 1988. Michelle is a veteran of many other prestigous tournaments, including the 
Yakima Open and she made her television debut right behind Pam Shriver in the Federation Cup. The ever- 
dedicated tennis hard-core also undertakes a harsh training/ suntanning program every Spring Break at the 
Palm Desert Overhead Volley Development Facility. 

For the future, Michelle's crystals are leading her in the direction of some US college, maybe to play a bit 
of tennis. 

Dana Porzelanski 

liana started SMU in grade 1 1 after escaping from Mill Bay and Brentwood. She quickly became known 
for her "Greetings", her parties (Aug/89!!) and her many, many hickeys. (I don't kiiow how that happen- 
ed!). She also became very famous for her little yellow Honda and her superb driving and parking jobs 
(remember stalling in downtown Vancouver!). Of course the most special part of that little yellow classic 
was the antenna she spent two hours "looking" for. liana had a great obsession for three things; Bert, 
chocolate and pencils. She actually became a clepto in the ever remembered Mrs. Smith's music class. Her 
pet peeves included "g" (dweeb). UCUB. Patty O'Fae (get away from that window!), gay man shoe's 
English class, and PMS (everything could always be blamed on PMS.). We will always remember her 
Wednesday morning trips, her "fights" with Matt, and (of course) the time she broke her hand while 
romantically being carried down Tolmie one Sat. night! liana was however involved in the basketball and 
volleyball teams. She also participated in the track and field team (throwing shotput in her sandals) and the 
school's dance committee. Next year she intends on going to Guelph or U.B.C. to meet some "men" and 
study veterinary medicine. We'll miss ya tons, liana. Good luck and thanks for always being an AWESOME 
and supporting friend. 


Robert Potter 

Robert (as he now prefers to be called) entered SMU in Second Term, Grade Nine. He remembers Dorm 
36 as the place where he suffered most (3rd degree bums, Ziggy bum-wahs, and Dan's feet in the morning). 
At the end of Grade Nine he made his professional (?) debut at the school talent show. In Grade 10, after 
amazing Miss T with out-of-control volume, Rob landed the pan of Orpheus in Orpheus in the Underworld. 
Grade 10 boarding mates (you know who you are) will remember the Purple Lounge, a haven for solitude 
and late night prep. In his opinion, Rob's major accomplishment at the school was playing the role of Simon 
Zealot in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar, where "he got to be as loud as he wanted". In Grade 12, he 
was the hooker with Hani on the ever courageous "Dogs of War" (love that D.C.) and really enjoyed play- 
mg the game. Rob made a quiet contribution to the Mikado as a member of the Japanese chorus. Rob is 
definitely going to miss the school and looks back fondly on friends and good times. (To many devoted fans 
he will always be the beloved Muffster!) Good luck, pal! 

David Proctor 

Although Dave had been at the school since grade six, the first time his personality was revealed was 
Kyoto during the band/choir trip of grade ten. Sure, there wasn't any Lucky, but hehh, those vending 
machines ... In grade seven, Dave was chosen as a prefect of the junior school . . . someone screwed up 
Dave wants to be remembered as the first non-Indian Indian since Chief Two dogs . . . ah, well, you had to 
be at Vietnal . . . Nitnam . . . whatever. Dave has overcome his French heritage handicap to faithfully belit- 
tle the French language (and the French) at every opportunity ("voulez-vous some toast avec that, eh'.'"). 

Dave is continuing his lightning fast one-night-stand with Marina which he cannot hope to complete. 
Despite the love/ peace/ happiness influence of the aforementioned Cypriot, Dave has never lost his rightish 
tendencies. He is at the same time one of the smallest and most evil of rugby players the school has ever had. 
earning him a place on the 2nd XV. If Dave does not go to Royal Roads, he promises to take remedial Anti- 
Marxism 101 and major in native accents at UBC. Dave, we did go to McDonalds, not that you'll remember 
... "I dragged that sucker fifty feet!" . . . Dave, I think this is our stop . . ." 

Philip Quiiin 

This man gave new meaning lo the lerm "lifer" at S.M.U. He hved in ail (4) houses with many experiences to tell. In 
grade four this short kid from Cow - (Calgary) Town arrived at the steps of Harvey House. Fast friends were made: T.C., 
B-F. and HZ., throughout the years of five and six. Grade seven found him in School House with Mr, Bennet; grade eight 
was the begmnmg of wicked noises at night. "Who threw the book, Geoff?!!" Ninth grade was the year of Spanish! Grade 
ten brought Philip to International House to rm 203 with I.F. and Q.C.. "What a Hole!". Included that year were great 
limes with a few power stud\ periods before exams, but not until Fig created Phil Drill before tlnals '87. Year eleven 
brought the man to Chateau New House, a den lor kings! Living with L.K. for two months and then H.Z. after the big 
switch, Throughout first and a part of second term, the Quill man reigned supreme in his chariot, a shopping cart! It was not 
until half way through second term w ith a certain British house-master played hard ball with his Lordship and Phil Quill lost 
his identity!! For grade twelve the man had mellowed and lost the desire for rugby, so he picked up Squash. The Lord of 
Squash as he was known put many hours of work into the "Game of Champions" in which he was successful enough to turn 
away many a Brentwood player! Other accomplishments for the year were "The Flying Dutchman", living with Wafterand 
many others. "Why do write-ups have to be in so early?!" 

Philip would like to salute L.K., S.J, and D.G. for their fine taste in music! Quotes to remember were "Boom 4"s in 
There!" and "See ya at the Fox S.A.!" Good luck in the future. Phil, at Western or Dalhousie. 

The Boarders 

Leo Quon 

Sleek, mean, and oriental though he may be, Leo is on the receiving end of nicknames such as Chips and 
the Gook. 

In JCSS he was known the world over as the guy with the really big . . . hat and the incredibly long . . 
spaces between solos. He was a Dog of War and absolutely magical as the come-from-behind goalie in mid- 
night hockey. Leo always advocated a trip to Bowser, but the closest he came to "The Little Town that 
Couldn't" was Mt. Washington where he showed us his own way of ski jumping and/ or having a hip 
replacement without anaesthetic. Leo's dramatic exploits were shown to us in the role he was bred to play; 
the Mikado. 

Leo has also apparently played every oriental anybody has ever seen, but we're not sure how to confirm 
that. He can't be contacted at home ("Leo not Home . . .) and Leo-Leo Orange Peel has left no forwarding 
address. We hear the University of Chiang-Kai-Shek has a new recruit - Sensei, Huddo. We have our 

Katy Rich 

Kathleen, an Albertan prairie girl, came to our humble abode in grade 11 bright-eyed and ready to try 
anything (ie. the MGB). but she soon disclosed her continued devotion to Edmontonians (and we don't mean 
Lucyl). After the "aawwfijr" interhouse cross country race, she was drafted onto Miss K.'s team which 
soon left for the B.C. 's. In Abbotsford. she managed to maintain her high standards of cleanliness (polishing 
herself in the carwash) and punctuality ("Only 22 hours and 49 minutes until . . .'"). Soccer and track and 
field followed, where Katy's inextricable inquiries ("Excuse me sir. why do we run counter-clockwise 
around the track? ') won her a trophy (love that plaque). Grade 12 brought a new Kate. Her love for extra- 
pulp O.J. was replaced by a taste for apple juice (low cal. surely), and "true story romances" were replaced 
by abrupt love such as Pittsburgh, basketball and. of course, the 50/50 draw (two in one). Kate, advice, you 
always have a much better time when you don't know what you're doing. May you succeed in all that you 
do. even if you don't know you're doing it. Ciao. hun! 

Peter Royea 

"When 1 give food to the poor, they call me a saint When 1 ask why the poor have no food they call me a 


Pete. Slick or Slickerie came to SMU from Oakham School in grade 1 1 . He left England to find himself in 
his native land. Canada. His many talents include music, art and (traveling the world with his newly ac- 
quired passport). This year he hopes to complete his travels and reach his goal of 160 countries. He has en- 
joyed his life at S.M.U. especially the weekends and hopes to continue on at Carleton. McGill or UBC. We 
wish him all the best in the future. 

Aaron Sawicki 

AaronSawicki(a.k.a. Slick and Bo Duke) arrived al SMU from the metropolis of Nanaimo in grade 10 in the midst of his 
prime academic career. His friendly personality (and his computer) helped develop friendships along with an "extraor- 
dinary" relationship with the prefects. Although somewhat isolated m the rums of School House, he managed to keep close 
tabs with a number of cunhrouls from Internationa! House. Progressmg forward. Aaron fled to International House in 
Grade 1 1 only to be elevated to the status as a Har\ey House prefect. Nonetheless, Aaron returned (much to his friend's 
delight and his relief) to International House as a prefect in Grade 12 On the playing field Aaron was truly amazing. In 
rugby he advanced from the Colts A (remember that first game^l to the esteemed ranks of the 1st XV (remember those 
socks') Although his playing time was cut short due to a shoulder iniur> . he served dutifully as manager. Other sporting 
notes include Aaron's respectable placing at the B.C.'s in track and field and his wonderful managerial skills for the 1st XI 
soccer team. 

Pet peeves included McPooh chicken, the communist hammer and sickle and being rudely awakened from his spares. 
Fond memories include Sunday afternoon poker games, dead-snake adventures, seawater tricks, faux pas's at McD's and 
his really clean dorm (?). So Aaron from all of us we hope you've had a really good time and we wish you all the best in the 
future. Don't forget you hold the purchase-price record for slaves on Toga Day! 

The Young Ones 

Jennifer Scherer 

Hailing from Cashmere Washington, Jen was patriotically gleeful when Ben Johnson lost his gold medal 
to "that American runner." Always a competitor. Jen was a three-year stalwart on the volleyball team, cap- 
taining it in her final year and winning well-deserved colours. She was also a mainstay for the basketball, 
track and field, and soccer teams, maintaining that her height had nothing to do with her athletic prowess. 
Several American universities, including one in Hawaii, are vying for Jen's services. Whichever one is 
smart enough to choose her. its gain will be SMU's loss. 


Kai Schmidt 

Kai flew into SMU to begin grade 7. Over the years he "developed" into our lovable 6'4", 210 lb Bamm 
Bamm. The "angel" was a member of the track and field, the 1st XV (grade II and 12) and the senior 
basketball teams, the latter of which he dropped due to wage disputes with the coach (an A in calculus). 
Throughout grade 12. he devoted much time to extracurricular activities, but still was able to whip into 
shape from all the Jesus Christ Superstar practice, the grade lO's during study hall by modelling his power- 
ful purple prefect blazer. Upon completing grade 12. Kai will go to boot camp and then join the military. 
Royals Roads or RMC. to study Aeronautical Engineering. Best of luck to you. and "Be all that you can be, 
big guy." 

Alex She 

Five years ago. Alex Kai-Hong She arrived in Victoria from Hong Kong. From the Orient, Alex quietly 
brought along a superior academic mind and an excellent work ethic. We were all especially dazzled by his 
fantastic performance in Mathematics. 

His talents in this subject is recognized not only by the school, but also by the country, in contests such as 
the Fermat. AHSME and Euclid. Alex also holds a deep interest in Physics. He is an "active" member of 
the Electronics Club and is involved in the Physics Olympiad program. Apart from his academic excellence. 
Alex is also a superb "humble" piano and tennis player. Not only has he won numerous prestigious awards 
from local music festivals, he was also the junior school champion in tennis in Grade Ten. He is also a 
Senior Team member. In his final year at SMU. his greatest contribution was undoubtedly the ever suc- 
cessful Chinese New Year Dinner at Ming's. Alex has planned well for his university education by applying 
to some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the United Slates and Canada. Wherever you go 
next year, the future looks extremely bright! Good Luck! 

Jasmine Siddiqui 

Jasmine ("Jas". "Sid". "The Flower Child") arrived at SMU in Grade 11. With her she brought a 
cheerful personality and an ever-ready smile - both of which were extremely useful on "The Trail!" 
Jasmine will always remember that outdoor trip - "Hell in six days" - on which she displayed her unique 
cooking skills ("anyone for more wallpaper paste?") (Just kidding, Jas). 

During her two years "learning experience" at SMU, Jasmine participated in Ball Room Dancing, the 
30-Hour Famine, a wide range of "fun" (let's be positive) choral extravaganzas and other activities. In be- 
tween studying for her many chem. physics and bio tests. Jas almost always found time to "support the 
school" by watching rugby games. Her own athletic prowess was demonstrated in those "exciting" aerobic 
workouts (and let's not forget Rec Tennis - how many times did that tennis ball go over the fence??). 
Jasmine, known for her attemiveness ("What did you say?"), will take her friendly and fun-loving per- 
sonality to med school, where she will study Pediatrics. Lxits of luck! You deserve the best. 

Love from all your friends 

Eric Stanger 

Eric fled from the Glenfolk nightmare in Grade 9, barely escaping with his life. He resurfaced at SMU and 
immediately took his proverbial musical talent on the road to Japan. After a handy back-door escape from 
certain death, Eric returned to take roles as Jesus in JCS and Pish Tush in Mikado. 

These performances, along with others with Matt and his brother propelled him to almost-semi-cult status. 
His unusual hair also has quite its share of followers and occasional fan mail. Eric is the epitome of an 
athlete, a steroid-free member of the 1st XV and 1st XL He skis a bit on the side although he was side track- 
ed by a movie career and a bent ski. 

He also drives A. Wall's appropriately renamed Corolla, and although the brakes don't work so well, he 
would have got away with it if the passerby hadn't been family friends. Public opinion suggests that Eric's 
handy tool box was the reason for his Merry Christmas but that's just a rumour. Eric's future is uncertain; he 
looks the part of a Garibaldi regular, but his departure from the Flaming Welshman shows he lacks the guts. 

Although he doesn't want to think about it, Eric will probably go to UBC with the rest of us. Yes, but no. 

Rick Stolle 

'If you're not pushing 

you're not going anywhere ' 
Founder of Rent-a-Wreck & 
SMU Old Boy 

Rick (AKA the Ricker) Stolle - started out at SMU in grade 9 as a boarder from W-Germany, and in grade 
10 became a day student. Rick enjoyed most of his life at SMU. He also made life more bearable for many 
people at SMU by hosting a great number of parties which always turned out to be a total blast. Rick spent 
numerous hours of his spare time at school in the Hole or on the Tolmie Patrol, always looking out for Mr. 
G. whilst having a dart with G.C., A.C., T.E. and M.W., and many others who crowded the parking lot on 

A ski fanatic (Level 1 Instructor) Rick was to be found on the slopes instead of the rugby pitch, yet in 
grade 12 he became an active member of the Dogs of War. He also participated in the production of the 
Mikado as a Gentleman of Japan and as an executioner. Rick, just remember what Mr. S. wrote on your 
report in grade II: "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." 

James Stone 

After a rowdy seven years at SMU, James has managed to become "CAPTAIN " of rugby, go on rugby 
tours to both the Far East and the U.K., and become the proud owner of one of the most famous vehicles of 
all time. That SIR ORANGE - There's nothing it can't tackle. Kinda like James. He also played cricket and 
even managed to survive a season without injury. His career as a bricklayer was short-lived but his warm-up 
suit was well-worn by the end of B-Ball season. Jimi. the BMOC, honoured the JCSS cast as a priest (Ilex 
those muscles, big guy). Garibaldi was certainly a natural high. What a concept, three little birds - sitting on 
your hair. 

The Pooh-bah, who is still tracing his ancestry back to a primordial globule, also has had his hands fed to a 
certain Duck. And then there's that insane laugh. 

James plans to go to U.B.C. next year to study Sciences. He will also try to get through a rugby season 
without injuring one or both of his knees. 

Martin Strange 

One of a select few lifers at SMU, Martin has attended another school only once (Vic High for one month 
of the summer). It was here that the reality of religion was brought home to him. Eid ala Allah a la Jehovah 
instructed him in the facts of life: the FLQ, railway gauges and 90 meters (120 feet'? 3 litres? 15 miles?). 
Martin in maroon is Vi as vicious but twice as cold to Grade 9's as the evil prefect (you know who). Martin 
in a mini of whatever colour is a personal friend of, oh, I don't know, maybe . . . Satan?? Martin is a 
dedicated rugby player (1st XV, an ISA Select XV), but he has risen above all that to be a somewhat normal 
person. (Who looks great in a Speedo . . .) He also looks great in the prefect room, where he can often be 
found with a "friend"! Martin was a support staff member, too! He went on three tours - but the most im- 
portant was the Japan tour, where he took Proctor running when Proctor was still heavily . . . sleepy. Martin 
has left us with a word to remember . . . "Nooo". Mart, wear more hats. 

Trina Talarico 

Somebody once said "life is nothing without diversions." such is the story of Trina Talarico. As one of 
the pioneer grade 8 girls, Trina arrived at S.M.U. roaring to participate in almost everything that came her 
way - and has been going strong ever since. As a talented field hockey player, Trina has toured England with 
the team, played for the first XI for three years straight, and captained the side in it's B.C. Championship 
victory. As a singer, Trina played prominent roles in both Orpheus in the Underworld and the Mikado. In 
the realm of drama, she has entertained audiences in a number of plays, most recently at the High School 
Provincial Championship. Somewhere amongst all these diversion Trina has managed to stay a first rale stu- 
dent while leading an equally busy social life. To those who never really knew her, she will be remembered 
as the smiling, energetic girl who was always on the go. To her friends, Trina will be remembered as the 
smiling, energetic girl who, despite her unending commitments, always found the time to care. Thanks 
Trina, for being there - we'll miss you when you're gone. 


Karen Tan 

Karen came to us from Kuala Lumpur in 12th grade, still in time to indent our minds with an impression of 
her vibrant, electric personality. She threw her enormous load of energy into Algebra and Calculus with 
Mr. G.. and into basketball score-keeping (also with the Great Green One). Although a self-titled 
"academic keener", Karen is far from being a pencil geek; her interests ranging from disuading prank 
callers ("Hello, Mr. Tongue's residence") to a certain rather attractive prefect. Karen has collected fond 
memories of her year at SMU, several of which are related to sharing the noisiest room in New House with 
Kelly (would you believe - across from two stairwells, a laundry room and the boys' common room) ("I 
couldn't do my French 'cause they were watching Walt Disney all day at 200decibles."); right next door to 
the girls' common room; right above the foyer and Mr. Nugent's powerful and deafening super-doorbell; 
and with a door to each of the popular 2nd floor hallway hangouts!). She will likely cart her memories of St. 
Mike's off to U.B.C.. leaving us with memories of her cheery temperament and friendly smile. 

Paul Turner 

"When this you see, remember me/ and keep me in your mind/ Let all the world say what they may./ speak 
of me as you find." 

B. Jones 

Paul Turner, a.k.a. Grubberi McStuderi. came to SMU in grade 10 from Glenlyon. He was hesitant ai 
first but after some convincing (and a new guitar) he changed his mind. He holds no regrets about his deci 
sion now. Paul enjoys snowboarding. cycling, sailing, acting, playing drums and guitar, and dressing to im 
press. He achieved the Most-Improved English award in grade 1 1 . even though he'll never catch up to mv 
80. Ttke care, Paul. 

Gillian Tyson 

Gillian (Smile!) Tyson first encountered S.M.U. in Grade 1 1 . as a guide girl from the small settlement of 
Gibson's Landing. B.C. Her early days are shrouded in mystery, as only a select few really knew this shy 
boarder. However, as the year wore on. Gil quickly shattered her reputation as the "Quiet Girl" to earn the 
respect and friendship of many. It was in her Grade 12 year that Gil really came into her own: as the only 
honourary female member of the Dogs of War. Gil shattered the sex-barrier; as an active team member of 
the Senior Girls X-Country team. Gil traveled to the Provincial Championships in Castlegar to discover the 
true meaning of masochism. "But you know what the best one was", on the Grad ski trip, Gil and the lateral 
ligaments of her left knee both discovered the importance of renting skiis whose bindings actually release! 
Anyone who has known Gil will remember her for her warmth of character, her sensitivity for others, and 
for the value which she brings to the word "friendship". Wherever she goes- we'll miss her. 

David Underwood 

Having withstood careful scrutiny and survived the entrance exams. Dave Underwood (alias Undie) 
plunged into terra incognito in grade 9 from a small prairie town in Alberta. He spent his grade 9 year thiev- 
ing mattresses and hiding them in the stairwell. In grade 10 he was parolled from the School House Peniten- 
tiary to the sanctuary of International House. "Andy the Veg" was a born entertainer. He played trumpet 
for various stage and concert bands as well as donating his vocal talent to "Jesus Christ Superstar" and 
"The Mikado". Dave proved his athletic indispensibility to the rugby front by gracing with his presence the 
6th. 5th, 4th, 3rd and 2nd XV's. He was also the invaluable spare for the 1st IV curling team. Dave has fond 
memories of bus rides cut short and International House 3rd floor target practise. Dave was promoted to the 
ranks of prefect early in grade eleven and acquired his "Cineplex Odeon" blazer upon return in fall for 
grade 12. Pet peeves include grade lO's, and having his tongue stuck in the sundial. If there's one thing 
Dave's learned this year it's to "never poke a . . ." Next year Dave plans (o attend Waterloo or McGill 
universities. So Dave, we leave you now and wish you the best of luck in the future. Thanks for everything 
("Veah, yeah). 

Boomshanka, The Young Ones 


Tanya Vaughan 

In the four years Tanya Vaughan has been at S.M.U. she has been the possessor of that most unlikely 
combination of beauty, intelligence, and friendliness. Tanya can almost inevitably be found at Fogg n" Suds 
ordering . . well, really whatever she wants, that is, unless she is in Tokyo, Kyoto, or the Inn at the 
Hanamaki Hot Springs, (oh those vending machines, oh those hotel fridges.) of course, she also may be seen 
in Acapulco. or Mexico City just drinking in all the culture. To the intense jealousy of some, she is also a 
very talented singer and actress, playing the role of Mary Magdelen in J.C.S.S. It's true, she's not quite sure 
about the whole wet spot thing, but Tanya at least knows all about stick figure positions, ("there can't be 
that many) .'Although she has found it physically impossible to concentrate in chemistry ("I'm bored - tell me 
who you like,) she intends to go into cosmetic surgery at U.B.C. where she will relive the whole fetal pig 
experience - but this time for money. 

Jason Wale 

Jason, the last of the Red Hot Lifers, has stated quite clearly that if B.C. adopted a grade 13 policy (mean- 
ing, of course, that he'd have to stay here for 1 more year), he would go quite insane. Not that he doesn't 
like it here (or that he isn't insane already!). On the contrary, he has represented this Garden of Scholastic 
Eden in rugby, track and field, cross-country, cycling, tiddly-winks and full-contact chess. The Waler. 
elected School Captain by his peers, seems able to control and manage almost anything, except perhaps his 
own romantic life. Another thing that Wale cannot control is his skiing - his bails are something that have to 
be seen to be believed . . . but. for safety's sake, we recommend seeing them by infrared camera from within 
a concrete bunker 10 miles away. Jason's laugh, often echoing off his fetal pig "Gren". sounds suspiciously 
like a Yak p— . There was one other time Jason sounded like a Yak p— . but we needn't delve into that. 

Thanks for being here. Jase - despite your frenzied and repeated claims of a deep-seated psychosis, you 
are probably the only sane one around. 

Tammy Walker 

"I believe in the Sun, even when it's not shining." 

Tamara first graced SMU's doorstep in grade 10, directly from . . . well, okay, Edmonton. In the 3 years 
she has attended this institution. Tammy has accomplished a great deal: she has started an amazingly suc- 
cessful Peer Counselling program (already into its thriving second minute at SMU). she has conned her 
peers into starv ing themselves for a day-and-a-half just so they know what it's like, and she has radically and 
consistently screwed up the Geology 12 curve. After the "natural high" of Garibaldi and being subjected to 
Milena's field hockey coaching techniques as a member of the 1st XI field hockey team (B.C. champs!), and 
grade 10 Harvey House boarding life, it's amazing she made it out alive. At the end of grade 1 1 she cleaned 
up on the Pointless Title Lotto sweepstakes, becoming Head of New House. School Captain. Secretary of 
Student Council. Peer of the Realm. Knight of the Round Table and Queen of the May. One of her favourite 
pastimes is telling the grad class that theme day has been cancelled (again). Consequently, one of the 
favourite pastimes of the grad class is to concoct schemes to trick Tammy into actually letting them have a 
theme day, next Wednesday; but the outcome is never in doubt — Tammy always wins. 

Matthew Wenger 

Matt, when at school, does surprisingly well. While 'studying " at U-Vic, didn't shoot anyone, but 
discreetly reminded strangers of their weight and still hates "curie". 

A member of the Caddy Bay Rat Pak. he only once went to Maynard Park for a "RUN"!!, even though he 
didn't have exams that week. An avid member of the curling team, he has won many "Awards" (nice 
pants!). Played Peter, a major role in the J.C. play, was one of the founders of the "Dogs of War" with 
Colin and organized the Ice hockey at the Racquet Club. 

After taking a geology sabatical to Mt. Doug with Tim. the search for a large earthquake was fulfilled in 
Mr. G.'s office at the end of the week ("Nice tan. boys."). Matt has a fetish for girls with "Kristian" 
names, alternating between going out with one of them seventeen times and seventeen at once. Matt also 
loves Walt Disney films (Right Thumper?) and took one of the "deerer" characters home for a banana split. 
Matt's idols are all Johns: Mr. Walker. Mr. Player. Mr. Labatt. Mr. Henry, and the porcelain god. He was 
also once quoted as asking, "When is celibate week?" Matt and his friends decided to take over a house for 
a week to look at sunrises and funny walkers. You can either find Matt down the road "studying" or at 
Muffin Break trying to drown his Monday morning blues with caffeine. 

David West 

"A man without religion is like a fish 

without a bicycle." 
J.E. Gaines 

Dave stalked out ofthe wildsof Dhaharan, Saudi Arabia in grade 9 to join SMU. He spent that year as one 
of the members of the infamous dorm 308, and is one of the few of those 12 who made it to graduation! 
From there, he has gone onto acquire such nicknames as "Deep Space". "Dhaharami Dave", "Doctor 
Dave", and his personal favorite. "Captain Purple". The Lord of Tolmie is well known for discovering 
Volcanic Activity in his realm, and collecting a wildly diverse group of close friends, the best being "Pooh- 
bear". "Chumder-down-under". and "Maybe . . .". Dave's greatest achievement was surviving Delta in 
Guss' bad-boy Bronco. He is currently debating between sciences at Western or U of C. 

Peter White 

Pete, drummer extraordinaire, joined SMU in gr. 9 much to the joy of Mr. Don McKay who was in 
desperate need of a good stick man. Grade 10 saw the first of the highly successful "Pete White World 
Tours" on which the stage band accompanied Pete to Japan. He wowed 'em (OOO. look at the cute drum- 
mer . . .1. In gr. 12 Pete let the band go with him again - this time to Epcot Center. Florida and Barbados 
. . . another triumph for Pete (OOO. look at de drummah . . . sooo dreamy . . .). Pete even found time to 
shine on the basketball court for several seasons in the Boys A. He put many many points on the board for 
MR. G. and was finally awarded his colours. We hope that Pete will rise to even greater heights in his drum- 
ming career - see ya and much music man. 

Vining Wolff 

Vining "Rambo" aka Lone Arctic Wolff descended upon SMU four years ago. carrying only his trusty 
badminton racquet and his incredible drive to always do his best. Since that time, he's made quite a name for 
himself- the winner of manv a badminton game, and badminton captain, a formidable International House 
prefect, for his "evening dinner excursions", beating on ususpecting grade 9's and being notorious as one 
of the very few who can tell Mr. Tongue when he's wrong, and be right. Without Vining, what would Ian B. 
get on chem labs'?'? Put Vining in a room full of chemicals and his hands will fly. Vining's affinity for 
knives, guns and anything chemical is well known, but he's also a dedicated friend with a creativity for 
dreaming up highly imaginative stories and car rallies. Good luck next year, Vining, and remember "You 
can run, but you can't hide." 

Darren Wong 

Darren, or Darren Douglas Wong joined the ranks of SMU at an early age in Grade 6. Upon graduating to 
Gr. 8 (and the senior school), he undoubtedly will remember being asked (many times) the question, "Are 
you related to Calvin? Ronald? Gord . . .?" and answering each time with a resounding "No!" Indeed, 
despite a very common last name. Mad Doc. Wong does not seem to have an identity problem. A "lifer " 
Victorian. Darren Douglas will gladly step forward to explain that he is not a misplaced Chinese. Usually ar- 
riving in the mornings in the "Gas Pig" Buick. Darren seems to be able to leave home late, yet still arrive at 
school early (that's why he went to YD . . . right?). Many times. Darren could be found having a leisurely 
game of tennis at the racquet club, or diligently discovering the secrets of the fetal pig in the biology lab. The 
Gr. 1 1 Ontario Universities trip remains the most memorable outdoors trip for Darren (What'' Hike? We just 
slept all day in the van.") He will never forget the Grad Ski Trip, where he learned that moguls were his 
friends and trees were not. After graduation, this co-editor ofthe yearbook ad section, having spent an entire 
seventeen years in Victoria intends to escape to some place else for university. Good luck, and remember, 
white collar crime doesn't pay. We'll miss ya. 


Ronald Wong 

In 1985. Ron crossed the Pacific Ocean from Hong Kong finally arriving at SMU. He adjusted to the en- 
vironment quickly and started to enjoy himself on the discovery of Romeo's Hawaiian Pizza, cornerstone. 
bio. and badminton. At weekends, Ron has spent much time developing his superb badminton skills. He 
began playing this game a couple of years ago, but his dexterity and talent quickly won him numerous 
trophies and medals. As Mr. Gardiner's biology student, Ron takes an interest in studying the complexity of 
the human body. To his delight, he discovered, in the course of his duties as boarding prefect, that this in- 
terest was shared by Harvey House junior boys when they were caught peeping into the Girls' Changing 
Room. As we can see. Ron has done a lot without people noticing! For next year. Ron has plans to stay in the 
West or invade the East for college. Wherever he ends up next year, we hope there is a pizza delivery 

Jason Yang 

Jason dropped in here in grade 8. from the depths of his homeland Taiwan. He settled in School House for 
the first year and made quite an impact. Grade nine saw a move of his presence to International House, 
where he managed to survive a year. Having had enough of Brown Hall in grade ten. he moved out on his 
own and has been there to this date. Jason showed a very great talent in art which he enjoys very much. His 
works are well known around the school (one even hangs in Mr. Penaluna's outer office!). He is a very good 
scholar in math but absolutely hates chemistry and prefers to sleep in physics class, waking up only to go to 
his car and out for a drive Jason likes cycling, and can be seen quite often zipping about the tour-de-Lac 
every year. He played rugby for the 4th and 5th teams in grades ten and eleven, and for the Dogs of War in 
grade twelve. A very quite person. Jason's actions speak differently. This "cool dude" (try arguing other- 
wise with him) is going to follow his desire for fame and fortune as he attends the prestigious Rhode Island 
School of Design. Best of luck. Bud! 

The lone Arctic Wolff 

David Yong 

" . I'm not aware of too many things I know what I know if you know what I mean . . ." 

E. Brichel & The New Bohemians 

Dave Yong a k.a. The Rainbow Warrior, Hatched and Raised in Vegreville. Alta. moved into School 
house in grade 7 after being transferred from Montreal's maximum security FLQ prison. He spent 3 years in 
the "Dungeon of Doom" before escaping to International House. In grade eleven he was promoted to 
prefect status and enjoyed the privileges through grade twelve as Head of House. Being a member of the 
"Purple Blazer Gang" his favourite duty was supervising "Power Walks". Dave's powerful presence was 
often sensed even in the absence of speech. On the sports front. Dave established himself as a top notch 
scrum-half by playing in the '86 U.K. tour. Colts A and was the esteemed captain of the 2nd XV. He believ- 
ed no sacrifice to be too great for the "Better Red than Dead" Grad hockey team. Dave also enjoyed curl- 
ing, tennis, racquetball and the West Coast Trail (Nah, we won't need a tarp!). Dave was known for his 
"Base Face", sidekick ruler, penny collection and his perfectly attended dorm. His pet peeves are losing at 
poker and getting sick on the Robertson. So Dave, franks for the memories and we wish you all the best in 
the future. 

The Young Ones 

Hani Zabaneh 

"Come on baby, light my fire" 
The Doors 

(A. K.A. Oil Well. Zablouski, Arabian Stallion) graced SMU in 1982, all the way from Dubai. U.A.E. 
This short crazy Arab fit in well in boarding. He was always heard saying his new words for the day such as 
"Dynamite" and "Idear". Things didn't begin to roll until grade ten when he met Andrea (WOW!!) and 
went GUNG HO over women, whom he deceived with his cute looks. Most nights you could find Hani club- 
bing with Afshin. In grade eleven Hani hung out with the guys and the infamous 6-pack. Many a night was 
spent at Bruce's bar and John's place. Then came grade twelve and with it trouble. 'The Caddy Bay Incident 
will always be remembered as the night Hani finally got his HAREM. After this, Hani mellowed a bit only 
to get caught up with Homa and Anita. Hani's accomplishments were hooking for school rugby and the great 
Dogs of War, volunteer work, music, one year of choir (after being asked not to return) and many others. 
Hani is uncertain which field of study he would like to pursue but we're all sure he will turn out O.K. Best of 

Buds forever 


Peter Zaoralek 

Very famous quote: "you done your Geology?" "?*@!C" 

Pete came to SMU in grade 8 alier attending Frank Hobbs for grades six and seven. He speaks three 
languages. English. German and Czech. Havmg been born in Munich. Germany of Czech descent. Pete is 
adorned with a great sense of values. This is evident with his purchase of that loud, tire squealing 69 
Camaro. Some of his interests include art. partying, cruising, cycling, being with Shelley and. oh yes. par- 
tying. He hopes to pursue a career in graphic design but will most likely end up being a mechanic! He would 
like to attend either UVic, Capilano or Emily Carr College of Art or Victoria College of Art. We will 
remember Pete for his good sense of humor and his famous drive-by incident. Good luck, Pete! 

Jason Zurba 

SMU's most gnome-like student. Zubs is also well-known for the remarkably persistent and noticeably 
lingering lack of any fuel-like substance in his Mustang. We all await the day that Zubs actually fills up his 
tarik - of course, when Zurba does have gas. watch out! Another quality for which this one of the 17 million 
Jasons in grade 12 is renowned is his ability to "gnome out" at any opportunity. Please be warned - if his 
eyes glaze and his breathing stops, this is not a sign to stan C.P.R. and call 911. It is his normal stale. It is 
suspected that the reason Jason crushed his nose into smithereens was a "gnome out" in the middle of a 
scrum, which reduced him to a level of consciousness below that of even a sedated second-row forward. We 
also believe that it was in this state that Zurba commented "Billy Idol is a musical genius". Jason has now 
taken a step sideways on the musical ladder and instead claims to find Guns n' Roses both interesting and 
stimulating. Well, anyone who would by choice carry a 3 tonne bag around with him. stuffed to the breaking 
point with loose papers and Haida choir songs, can only be expected to have this sort of musical taste. By the 
time Jase goes to UBC. it is hope that his tastes will have improved to the point w here he likes something like 
Metal Messiah. 

Exchange Students 

Serge Merckx 

Serge came to SMU from Belgium. He spent a rather quiet year at this school. He is an active member of 
the tennis, cross country and the track and field teams. Other than participating in those activities. Serge 
spent most of his time watching TV. Right now, he's not sure where to go next year. He might choose to 
slay in Canada or go to the Sorbonne in France. In either case, we wish you the best of luck! 


Christine is from Fran- 
cheville, Normandie, France, 
and has successfully taken on 
a role as both teacher and stu- 
dent. At the Middle School

Student Council 

B.R.: Catherine Juricic, Chrisline Reilly, Christopher Dyson, Christopher Beeston. Dan Geronazzo, Stewart Butterfield. Susan Ander- 
son, Ann Behennah. 
F.R.: Jason Wale. Marina Kasapi, Brian Faulkner. Keith Murdoch, Tammy Walker, Jason Ford. 

This year has been one of consolidation at the school and this has been reflected at the weekly meetings 
of the Student Council. The changes and upheavals of the immediate past brought with them numerous 
problems for the students and the council had a busy time trying to resolve them. This year however, our 
task of keeping the wheels of industry oiled and running smoothly has been somewhat more straightforward. 

Questions concerning amenities, academics, and social events have been handled and it reflects the high 
degree of satisfaction prevailing that there are no major problems outstanding as we draw to a close. 

I should like to thank the council members for their conscientious efforts on behalf of their fellow students. 
Their mature and caring attitudes have made my role as chairman that much easier.

These students from the Senior Campus had their essays submitted for the competition and it reflects 
well on S.M. U. that eight won top awards at the Provincial Level. Chris Dyson placed third overall, while 
Danielle Topliss, (who was still in grade 9 at the time), placed second. 

The best essays from the Province were forwarded to London and at the international level, eight students 
from the Senior and Middle schools received top certificates in a competition covering 40 countries and 
over 3,000 competitors. Congratulations go to Adrian Behennah, Colin Brown, Carlo Henley, Mike Ellis, 
Kevin Lundy, Brian Scanlan, Suzanne Obdrazalek, and Danielle Topliss. 

The annual conference sponsored by the Royal Com- 
monwealth Society was this year held at the University 
of Victoria in the Senate Chamber. Six students from 
S.M.U. attended. They represented the delegates from 
Australia and the United Kingdom. The executive ses- 
sions were full of vitality and dynamism with debates 
by concensus covering such topics as Human Rights, 
The Environment and International Peace and Security. 

Nate Lampard was named winner of the Ottawa 90 
Conference award and Sunil Joneja won the book prize. 

Undoubtedly however, all the participants were win- 
ners. They gained much from a weekend conference 
focussing on the ideals of the Commonwealth in the 
company of their peers from numerous schools on Van- 
couver Island.

Boarding Report 1988-1989 

For the Second year running, I was delighted that one of our boarders was selected as School Captain. Last year 
David Longridge and this year Tammy Walker. This gave our students in residence an ongoing opportunity to air their 
views and to be integrally involved in the school's decision making process, regarding student affairs. Another en- 
couraging move was the involvement of Boarding Prefects from each house representing our students in the overall 
Prefect Body of the school. 

In the few years that I have been here, life in boarding has changed markedly. I recall Mr. Ian Hyde-Lay tearing 
his hair out with frustration over the lack of academic progress his Middle School boarders were making the School 
House. Just four years later, the same grade produced fifteen Provincial Scholarships from our boarders alone, with 
virtually everyone entering the University of their choice. The cramped conditions of School House have been replaced 
by a New Residence providing exactly the right atmosphere for study and a growing independence of our senior students. 
Perhaps the most significant change, though, has been the greater sense of responsibility that our students have 
demonstrated. The expectation, for example, that senior boarders will be involved in controlling and helping to set 
up parties kindly arranged and super\'ised by day parents in their homes. The greater involvement and interest that 
the senior students have shown in helping younger students seeing themselves as older brothers and sisters rather than 

I would like to take the opportunity of thanking our teams of prefects for doing such a mar\'ellous job. 

The New Residence was significantly more homegenous this year with all prefects working together for the common 
good. Ian Parish and Tammy Walker led a fine group of very capable prefects. They should be proud of their achievements. 

Mrs. Merrell Harlowe continues to be devoted and dedicated to her "family" and must be congratulated along with 
her colleagues on another fine year. 

One of the highlights of this year was the surprise leaving party organized by the House Staff and prefects of Interna- 
tional House for Mr. Tim Cummings. The organizers managed to get everything necessary for a huge barbecue out 
to Mt. Doug including the seventy other members of house. Tim who was meant to be out for a quiet evening stroll 
on the beach, was accosted by all of his charges as they leaped out from behind the many trees alongside the beach. 
It was a great occasion and a fitting tribute to a man all the students loved. He always had time for his boys: to talk 
listen and try and understand their problems. He will be sorely missed by all and we wish him well in the future. I 
thank him for his great compassion and sensitivity. By the way, boys the taxes have all been done. The House Parents 
as well as a strong and able bodied group of prefects he was assisted by many helpful Grade 12' s. 

All in all, it was a happy and productive year in which the boarders made a very significant contribution to the 
considerable success of the school. 

Peter Tongue 
(Director of Residence) 

Harvey House 

This year the Boarders have ranged from gr. 4 to gr. 8 and have certainly proved themselves 
to be energetic and enthusiastic in all the various activities. We have representation from nine 
different countries and it has been interesting and gratifying to see how everyone has learnt to 
show tolerance, understanding and patience not only around the house but in the dorm situa- 
tion where friction is bound to occur from time to time. 

Many of the boarders have represented the school in team sports and I congratulate the 
following in particular for their overall participation. Jamie Goodier, Leroy Mills. David 
Hughs, Bill Hann, Adrian Campillo, Jim Chen, Ignacio Serrano, Anthony Detrano, Colin 
Danier, Jordan Gibb, Andrew Pospisilich, Dounia Whitehorse, Wayne Chen, and David 

My thanks to the House Prefects who have worked very hard and displayed a great deal of 
maturity: Jason Deerborn (Head of House 1989), Nolan Magnus (Head of House 1988), Greg 
Clarke, Craig Parish, Gino Merino, George Crothall and Alex Schutte. 

One of the features this year has been the Sunday activity program which the staff have ar- 
ranged, often in conjunction with Ted Piete's outdoor program. 

Also my gratitude to all the House Staff who have given unstintingly this year. Their energy 
and good cheer have been very valuable to us all: Barbara Leonard. Gavin Bowers. Evan Jones, 
and David Craig. Well done!

Band Tour '89 - Florida and Barbados 

For the Easter break the Senior School stage band attended the All-American Band Festival in Fort Lauderdale, 
Florida. This was an exceptional experience for all the members as there were over 2,000 musicians representing dif- 
ferent parts of North America involved in the festival. The S.M.U. band was able to garner a "superior" rating in 
the Jazz band category. Besides participating in the festival, the band was able to visit Disneyland, the Epcott Centre, 
and the N.A.S.A. Space Centre. 

The next stop was Barbados. Unfortunately we arrived at the end of term, but the band was still able to play at 
three of the schools before they broke up for the holidays: St. Gabriels School, a primary school which the band will 
best remember as the location of their concert ' 'under the trees ' '; Codrington High School, a senior girls boarding 
school: and St. Winifreds School, which was the location of a mob of autograph-hungry girls - truly the moment "in 
the sun ' ' had arrived. 

A great help in Barbados was the Canadian Women's Club, who billeted the band, and helped facilitate the visits 
to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, the Cruise on the Bajan Queen, the Cruise on the Atlantis Submarine, the concerts 
at the Barbados Pizza House (on the beach) and the waterfront cafe (on the boardwalk in town). 

Special congratulations must go to Don MacKay, the band's conductor, who did such a tremendous job with the 
band, who were a hit wherever they went. Special memories include our rides with Ray in his truck: Peters drum solos 
which were the high point of the concerts: and the exploration we were able to make into another culture. My thanks 
go to the band for letting me accompany them on a visit to my maternal homeland. I think we might all have joined 
in the refrain of the Bajan calypso: "We want more, Sir, we want more"

The Mikado at the McPhearson 





Once again the Badminton Team has enjoyed a 
very successful season. The usual frustrations of try- 
ing to field a balanced team have been evident this 
year with a very strong and experienced boys ' squad 
and a somewhat less experienced girls' team. As 
usual, the school entered two teams in the city league: 
an 'A' Team (all S.M.U.) and a 'B' Team with 
S.M.U. boys and St. Margaret's girls. We extend our 
thanks to these young ladies for their dedication and 
the opportunity to play with them.

This Year has seen tremendously hard work 
by the boys ' teams and a marked improvement 
in skills by the girls. Once again the team has 
benefited from the outstanding coaching of Mr. 
Peter Gardiner who has given endless time and 
commitment to the players. This year marks the 
eleventh time Mr. Gardiner's team has 
qualified for the Provincial Tournament; a 
remarkable accomplishment in any sport. 
Thanks are also due to the two team captains, 
Mary McLeish and Vining Wolff, for their 

Next year promises to be equally as good with 
the return of half the girls' team, three 
members of the boys' 'A ' team and many of the 
'B' team players poised to make their debut on 
the first team.

1988-89 was an extremely exciting year for what was formerly a team without a nickname. The senior boys are now 
officially the "SMU BLUE DEVILS. " 

Playing in the tough AAA league, the boys posted a 6-4 record, good for a fourth place tie with Mt. Douglas and 
Spectrum. The overall team record was 18 wins and 12 losses. 

The team played in 4 tournaments. Before Christmas we posted a 2-1 record, losing to the number one team from 
Agassiz 74-70 in the Vic High Classic. Dave Skulbru was named to the first all star team, a feat he duplicated in 
the tough Port Albemi Totem Tournament after Christmas. In the opening round of the Totem the boys lost a tough 
fought match to the Nanaimo Islanders 70-65. We beat the Delta Sun Devils in our second game before beating the 
hosts in a thriller 74-72 before 600 screaming fans. Our third tournament saw us take the long journey to the frozen 
north - Clearwater, to play in the Raider International. We won our first 2 games against KLO and the hosts in the 
semis. In the finals we played Salmon Arm who beat us 81-72. Tyler Hadfield played a fine tournament and was named 
to the first All Star team. 

Our final Tournament was the 3rd annual "BLUE DEVIL INVITATIONAL." We won our first game against Fort 
St. James. The second game was a loss to tourney finalist Cariboo Hill. Game 3 resulted in a heartbreaking defeat 
to Aldergrove 78-76. In our fourth game we defeated our arch rivals - Spectrum 69-59. Dave Skulbru made the second 
all star team and Pete White was an honourable mention. 

Crowds were at an all time high this year for home games. Introduced was the WOOSHU! after a successful home 
team free throw. Fans became very involved in our pre-game warm-ups, thrilling at "Marvellous Marvin's" spectacular 
dunks. He became quite a legend. 

Our favorite tournament was in Seattle in January where we played 2 games winning against Overlake and losing 
to a tough Bush school. 

Our season actually began in Seattle when the Blue Devils attended team camp at the University of Washington. 
Nine of the ten players to make the team gave up their summer to test their talents against 15 excellent American 
teams. It was a committment to what helped in a successful season. Players attending the camp were seniors Matt 
Crawley, Dan Geronazzo, Rog Bannister, Jann Margison, Marv Nicholson, Nolan Magnus and Pete White. Juniors 
attending were Tom Duke and Dave Skulbru. Our bus driver and coach par excellence was Ian Hyde-Lay. Many thanks 
for his expertise and sacrifice of time on our behalf. 

Our five leading scorers in points (game average) were Pete (18. 7), Dave (18.2), Rog (11.9), Jann (10.8), and Tyler 
(10.1). Leading Rebounders were Pete (10.6), Matt (7.2), Marv (6.9), Dan (6.7), and Jann (5.1). 

Dave was named to the "Times Colonist" second all star team and Peter was an honourable mention. Peter also 
played in the Vancouver Island All Star Classic at Uvic. 

Special thanks go to Julie Ford, Philip Kayal, and Leif Reinhold for organizing the scorekeepers. Without your 
effort basketball is impossible. Also to Sean Mahoney, The Artist Deluxe, who created our "Blue Devil" design. 

We are looking forward to next year with great anticipation. See you at our home games!!!

F.R.; J. Rondow, S. Elford, I. Porzekanski, S. Ayone, R. Coombes, J. Jung. 

The senior girls basketball team was fairly inexperienced this year with only three gr. 12 players. Two of these key 
players were lost to injuries: Ann Gordon and liana Porzecanski. The remaining senior, Jen Scherer, eight gr. 11 
players and one gr. 10 player worked very hard to improve their skill levels. Both our first and last games were played 
against Brentwood. In the first game we gave up 70 points; in the last, only 38 points. The highlight of our season 
was the ISA tournament where we won a decisive victory, 64-22, over York House and lost two close games to St. 
Margarets, 40-43, and Brentwood, 38-33. 

If we look only at our win loss record we would be disappointed in the season. If we remember the individual and 
team improvements that resulted from hours of hard work, we would be encouraged. We have several players returning 
who have more experience and improved skills and we should be more competitive next year. 

Thanks to Jen Ann and liana for their contributions to the basketball team. 


Senior Boys ''B" Basketball 

Junior Girls Basketball 


Junior Boy's Basketball 

The Junior Boys Basketball team enjoyed its most successful season ever, winning the Island tour- 
nament at long odds, and going on to split four games at the Provincials. This was quite a remarkable 
feat, given the intense competition to just qualify from the City League, and a lack of height and 
overall team speed. 

The competitive nature and teamwork displayed was commendable, and opponents had to face game 
long full court pressure and stingy man to man defence. Offensively, the slick passing of newcomer 
Mark Grist neatly complimented the streaky outside shooting of Milan Vzelac and quick silver moves 
of Jeremy Cordle. Max Humphrey's could also light it up from the outside, while captain and point 
guard Jason Reynolds, who enjoyed an outstanding year, directed traffic. This starting unit was well 
backed up by a talented bunch of reserves, who in practice sessions gave as good as they got. Indeed, 
many of our best games in the season were team scrimmages. Dave Roddick, Richard Stone and Jason 
Penaluna were all effective in the backcourt, while grade 9's Brent McLay and Chris Isherwood were 
invariably on hand for some instant offence. In the post, Jeremy Harris and Rob McTavish received 
lots of playing time and made enormous strides. Finally, Chad Bevan always gave the team a big lift 
with his feisty spirited play. 

There were so many highlights to the season, including staving off Esquimalt 48-33 to qualify for 
the Island tournament. This event, played in Campbell River, was a roller-coaster. In the Semi-finals, 
we defeated Island top seed, Spencer, a team who had easily handelled us earlier in the year. Playing 
with great determination, the team battled back from a 10 point deficit in the fourth quarter to prevail 
49-48 but not before the final frantic seconds saw a disputed three point shot, fouls travelling calls 
and a last Spencer shot attempt which crawled agonizingly around the rim before falling off. 

This outstanding victory was then followed by a 47-39 win over Colquitz, as we gained our first 
ever Island title. 

The season ended at the B.C. tournament but not before we split four games en route to a 9th 
place finish. The event was a well organized and highly competitive one, and showed that, while we 
may have been Island champions, a wide gap still remained between us and the province's three or 
four best teams. 

Next year's squad looks to be even better, with five grade 9's and a number of "redshirts" get 
to return. The potential is there to seriously challenge for the provincial title. 

In closing, special thanks again to all the players who made the season so memorable, and to the 
many parents who travelled far and wide to give us support. It was so much fun just to be involved 
with such a great group.

Cross Country 

With the help of determination and experience on the boys' side and a "recruit" from Arizona for the girls, 
our season was by far the most successful yet in the history of the school. 

The boys captured the Lower Island and Island titles for the first time ever. So as not to spoil their record, 
they went off to Castlegar at the end of November and claimed the PROVINCIAL TITLE! 

Despite a few minor bus breakdowns and a five hour wait in Dairy Queen after winning the B.C. 's, the team 
came back to Victoria very satisfied and proud of their feat. The spirit and support of all team members were 
important components in the boys' success but special congratulations must go to the five who scored consistent- 
ly for the team: John Dryden, Jason Wale, Chris Fraser, Colin Cameron and Bruce Fuller. 

The girls' team, which only had two regular participants for training sessions, managed a very respectable sec- 
ond place standing after the Lower Island League, thirdon the Island and eighth in theB.C.'s. All these placings 
are the best ever for S.M.U. girls. Special mention has to be made of Tina Carrington, new to the school this 
year, who joined the team with a vast amount of experience, and led them throughout the season, as well as 
Barb Bundon who was the only girl to train and compete consistently for S.M.U. for the past three years. 

Many thanks to all the students who participated in this memorable season.

Cycling enjoyed a very positive year. Recreational cycling continued to be popular. Team cycling gained 
much depth, boosted by some enthusiastic gr. 12's and some strong up and coming gr. lO's. The Tour de 
Lac was once again the premier competitive event. This year 120 riders finished the race which was won 
by JeffElluiot of Belmont in a new record time. SMU's top finishers were Chris Fraser - 7th, Paul Mochrie 
- 14th, and Mark Longridge - 22nd. In the under 16 category, Jason LeHeup was 3rd, coming in at 39th 
overall while Hikari Yoshihari was 4th coming in at 39th. Alex Wardle rode aggressively after a tumble. 
These three gr. lO's will be a force to reckon with in the future. Robin Coombes was the first woman prov- 
ing SMU's strength again in that area. Out of 15 teams Belmont was first while SMU was a very credible 
fourth, narrowly missing third. 

Chris Fraser, Jason LeHeup, and Hikari Yoshihari have also been competing in mountain bike races 
and will continue to race in various road events and biathalons this summer. 

The Best All Round Cyclist Award was won by Mark Longridge for reliability, positive attitude and for 
being the most improved rider of the year.

In league play the girls were undefeated with a 5-0 record, beating all the other Victoria teams comfortably. 
In the Island tournament they were not as successful, despite coming first in their pool. After playing overtime 
and penalty strokes in the semi-final against Claremont, the game was lost 1-0 in sudden death penalty strokes. 
The girls then defeated Highlands 2-0 for third place and the last berth in the B.C. tournament. 

At the B.C. 's the girls came out Ml in their pool. They started off slowly but as each game was played they 
improved more and more. In the semi-final we met K.L.O., a strong Okanagan team, beating them 1-0 (scorer 
Julie McLay) to advance to the final. Okanagan Mission, our rivals last year, and B.C. Champions for the 
last five years came up short against us! Our defense was outstanding, conceding only one goal, and goals 
by Julie McLay and Cathy Juricic left the S.M.U. girls B.C. Champions for 1988! 

First XI remember: 

' 'Believe in your teammates. ' ' 

' 'Communicate with your teammates. ' ' 

"And then you will become a teammate."

Junior Girls 

The junior girls field hockey team 
started off slowly but improved con- 
siderably over the season. Although the 
team 's record in league play was 3 wins 
and 5 losses, all games were close, as 
our goals for-and-against record (11-10) 

The team played its best in the city 
and island tournaments. After winning 
our round-robin section at the city tour- 
nament, we lost 2 close games against 
Arbutus and Oak Bay to finish in sixth 
place. We were then challenged by 
George Bonner School in Mill Bay for 
a berth in the island tournament; we 
easily won the game and advanced to 
the islands. 

In round-robin play at the island 
tournament, we defeated Mt. Klitsa 
from Port Albemi then lost to Central, 
the ttl ranked team from the south. We 
went on to the winners' double elimina- 
tion side and played Arbutus. After 40 
minutes of regulation play and 10 
minutes of overtime, the game was BR. 

scoreless. Arbutus then defeated us in F.R. 

penalty strokes. Our next game was 
against Lambrick Park. Lambrick led 

by a goal for most of the game, until Shauna Pengelly scored for us in the last two minutes of the game. Again the game went 
into overtime and again, to penalty strokes. Lambrick defeated us 2-1. Because of extremely poor conditions on the playing field, 
we did not play the game to decide 7th and 8th place but instead shared 7th place with Cowichan. 

All players contributed to the total team effort, but particularly outstanding were Shauna Pengelly, our captain, who provided 
strong leadership and set a good example for other players with her hard work, perseverance, and positive attitude: Margaret Fonger, 
who used her skill and speed to advantage on the left wing, and Jenny Ellis, who kept the score close in many games by making 
great saves in net. With 9 players returning, we look forward to a successful season next year.

This year's school golf team participated in several events. A team of Tyler Hadfield, Steve Jackson, 
Marvin Nicolson and Jeremy Petzing tied for the low net score in the Stelly's Invitational Tourna- 
ment in April in Glen Meadows. Moving to the Lower Island Championship at Gorge Vale on May 
5, our team of Tyler Hadfield, Steve Jackson, Marvin Nicolson and Mike Crape and Bruce Holiday 
- cctt came in 4th with a score of 352. This was good enough to qualify for the Island Championship 
on May 12th, where, in spite of a good 78 by Tyler, we came in 7th. 

The season's finale was the keenly contested Staff/Student Match at Uplands on June 7th which 
ended in a win for the students by a score of 5.5 to 2.5. The staff have served notice that they intend 
to reverse this score in 1990.

The season was opened with great enthusiasm, as with only two of last year's 1st XV returning, many places were up for grabs. The plan was 
to play a wide open running game, and to do this we had to first of all get very fit. The regular Monday afternoon trek up the side of Mt. Tolmie. 
many times became the highlight of the week, particularly for the heavy brigade, affectionately known as the "Poh-Poh's. " who could be heard 
chanting "hills, hills, hilts!" on their jubilant approach to the mountain. Selection was difficult, initially, as so many tried hard to impress, and 
in some ways there were too many options open to us. 

Our opening game was a tough one, away to St. George's, who had a useful side, and although we competed well for much of the game, we 
gave away too many soft points and lost 18-6. The 2nd XV had a good win and several changes were made following these results. We then travelled 
to Brentwood end had a much stronger performance, particularly from the forwards, who dominated for much of the game allowing us to win 12-9. 
Our first home game against Shawnigan followed a similar pattern bringing a 1 7-3 victory. By now the team had gained much confidence. The 
backs were running the ball from all over the field and the forwards were supporting and driving on extremely well. 

St. George's at home was to be a real challenge, as they were unbeaten, and we needed an upset. We rose to the occasion, pulling off our best 
performance in atrocious conditions, to outplay them to a 23-0 defeat. Again in desperate conditions, our one disappointment of the term, was 
the game against Brentwood, at home, when we found ourselves 11-0 down after a very casual stari. We fought hard to recover but could only 
manage seven points. Our final Independant Schools game was a fitting finale, as we played extremely well as a team running in six tries for a 
35-7 victory over Shawnigan. This gave us top spot in the Independant Schools Championship. 

We also played in the Vancouver Island Junior Division, which gave us the opportunity to "blood" some young stars of the future. We came 
second in the league, and after a good win against James Bay 24-16 in the semi-final playoff, lost to U. Vic Jutes, a very powerful side, 26-6 in the final. 

We had one touring side. Wrekin College. England, come through in October with a 1st and 2nd XV. We had very tough, hard fought games, 
the 2nd XV eventually winning in the last minute and the 1st XV playing to a 13-13 draw. 

The team was very well balanced this year with no stars and no weaknesses. The strengths of the side undoubtedly lay in the mobility, fitness 
and overall intelligence that the players demonstrated; a common goal, well executed. The surprise was perhaps the toughness and uncompromising 
manner in which they went about their task. 

From a team who failed to win in grade 8, to Champions with cohesion, purpose and excitement, they can be proud of themselves. 

I would like to thank; Aaron Sawicki, unfortunately injured before the first game, for his efficiency and morale boosting management, James 
Stone, for his fine example of leadership on and off the field, and the staff for their suppori and encouragement.

The 2nd XV had a somewhat mixed season, spoiled to a large degree by November's miserable weather 
and field conditions. Indeed, in the heavy going, the team's wide-open, "run from everywhere" approach 
foundered, most notably in the return fixture against St. George's. Having comfortably defeated our rivals 
in Vancouver in early October, we lost 4-0 in the mud a month later, despite dominating the game in vir- 
tually all departments. This loss eliminated us from I.S.A. Championship contention, as Brentwood, against 
whom we lost 8-4 and drew 0-0, claimed the title. The weather even enjoyed a final triumph, as our last 
match versus Shawnigan was cancelled because of heavy rain. 

25 players represented the side, and throughout the year there was a good deal of player movement be- 
tween the 2nd and 3rd XV' s. In a team without individual stars, scrum half and captain David Yong was 
a solid performer and strong leader, while right wing Scott Fletcher, who led the side in tries, was a handful 
for any defender. On the other flank, Gino Merino proved pacy and deceptive, and certainly warranted 
his call up to the 1st XV late in the season. 

Upfront, all the players toiled away admirably and relished the many opportunities to run with the ball. 

The highlight of the season was unquestionably a 10-7 victory over Wrekin College from Shropshire, 
England. Rory Forbes capped an exciting game with a fine team try in the corner at full time. 

To the graduating players, thank you. To the returnees, best of luck in your quest for 1st XV honours. 
Whatever happens, always remember to run the ball and enjoy your game!

The 1988 season was a disappointing one for the 4th XV. 
St. George's was unable to field a 4th XV and bad weather 
forced the cancellation of the away match against Shawnigan 
Lake. As a result the 4th XV played only three games all 
season. Against Brentwood we were defeated 3-0 at home and 
16-0 away, but we did manage to defeat Shawnigan Lake at 
home 16-0. To all players I would like to extend my thanks.

At the beginning of this year's rugby season, the Colts numbered only 1 7 and were at the bottom of the moun- 
tain which they needed to climb. With a coaxing from a few members of staff, the numbers gradually rose to 
about 42. We were able to field 3 teams. 

After a slow start in thel.S.A., the Colts, B&C, won some good games, usually against much bigger opposi- 
tion. The Colts A always worked hard but lost all their games by a very narrow margin. 

In the city league we finished 3rd in the south - losing to Esquimalt and a draw game with Claremont. We 
just qualified for the island championships at Courtney - this was our chance to make a big impact on the moun- 
tain. We started badly against Qualicum winning in the last minute 4-3. We moved on and on the final day, 
we were dominant over Claremont winning easily 12-0. This placed us in the final - the summit in sight and 
the lions hungary. We played Esquimalt, a team that had beaten us 13-0 only two weeks previously. The boys 
started well scoring in the first 5 minutes, and the pressure continued throughout and in the end we won comfor- 
tably 18-6. We were the island champions and on top of the mountain. The lions had to be fed - we called in 
at Parksville for a pizza. 

The boys had an enjoyable season - one of the highlights was Captain Beaky 's Rugby League Challenge Cup. 
Many, many thanks to Mr. Samuel and Mr. Rees for a job very well done.

Junior Colts Under 15 A 

This was the "BIG BOOT BLACKOUT" season. The Under 15 A team achieved a remarkable feat for the season 
by not only going undefeated in all their games, but at no time during the year did they kick the ball out of their 
hands. This unprecedented move naturally produced running rugby that was a joy to watch. With a magnificent supply 
of ball from both set and loose situations the outside backs scored over 80 percent of the tries, and the remainder 
of the scores came from players who were the epitome of ' 'support, support, support. ' ' 

The team opened the season with an impressive 36-4 win over St. George's in Vancouver. Victories followed in fine 
style against George Bonner (48-0) and Ballenas H.S. (28-6) and then a superb performance at Brentwood College 
when we recorded a stunning 52-3 win. The team finished the first half of the season with a 36-3 win over Shawnigan, 
before taking a well deserved break. 

In the second half of the season we never again reached the dizzy scoring heights of the earlier games, and there 
was one single factor responsible for this - the rains of B.C. Our fields became almost unplayable as we were literally 
bogged down in ankle deep mud. Regardless of the elements, the team continued to play open rugby and lived up to 
their promise that they would not resort to kick and rush tactics. St. George's and Brentwood were beaten 16-4 and 
30-3 respectively and only Shawnigan stood between us and a 100 percent record. In less than ideal conditions the 
team gave a great display of attacking rugby and walked away winners by 50-3. 

It was obvious from the beginning of the season that this team had some very fine athletes. It was also obvious that 
within the Grade there were many other fine athletes that would legitimately challenge for "A" team places. A com- 
bination of these factors and a first class work ethic brought the very best skills in these very dedicated players. The 
year may well be remembered as a season of invincibility and a season where the ball was never kicked, but these 
boys should also be remembered as a group who enjoyed themselves and who exemplified the best traits of character 
that we claim the game fosters. 

S.M.U. will be well served by these youngsters in the next three years and it would not be too presumptuous to 
suggest, that in the future Canada may also be well served at all levels by some of this team. Our thanks to "the 
gentlemen in the middle" for all their services, and to the many parents who gave us such loyal support this year.

The Blues had a mixed season this year. The opening game against Shawnigan Lake was played on a very wet B 
field. Nevertheless, the Blues were never seriously threatened and paced by a pair of goals from Ignacio Serrano, we 
won 3-1. After a few postponements, Brentwood came to us and the conditions were more fitting Scottish soccer than 
Victoria, (cold, windy, and wet). Again we controlled the game and carried a 2-0 advantage into the second half. Coach 
Nugent wanted the rather full bench to taste success; unfortunately this was almost our undoing as Brentwood scored 
two goals before the "starting" lineup could be restored. Luke Harvey scored the game winner, his second in this 
match. With St. George's cancelling the final game, S.M.U. looked like favorites for the LS.A. Tournament at St. 

In the first game, Brentwood gained confidence as the game wore on and the Blues missed the net or hit the post 
(twice). A long shot from just over center, carried with the wind, over Gerald Ip's head and Brentwood went ahead. 
The Blues fought back with a goal from Yann Monroy and the score at full-time was 1-1. The game went through 
extra time to a penalty shoot-out: with Brentwood ahead 4-3 it came down to our final shot which unfortunately miss- 
ed. After this the Blues had literally 5 minutes before the Shawnigan match. A cold rain seemed to take the last energy 
away from us (along with another hit crossbar and post). Shawnigan scored at full-time to make the final 2-0. So 
it was an unlucky tournament after a very promising season. 

Special thanks go to Alesandro Skipsey and Ignacio Serrano, our Harvey House connections; to Bicky Grewal and 
Saul Gutteriez who practiced with us all season though unable to play being over age; to Richard Stone, Julian McKenzie, 
and Peter Robb for filling in on game days; and to Danny Fill for providing that image of determination, trying three 
times, while prone on the field, to head a ball into the Shawnigan net. 

To all the Blues, WELL DONE!

Senior Girl's Soccer 

This year's girls' team enjoyed more success than any previous team due 
largely to the hard work and determination of the team as a whole. In the first 
round of play the team recorded three wins, one draw, and one loss to finish 
second in the division and advance to the championship round. In this round 
the team played well but managed only two draws against three losses. 
Nonetheless in overall city league play the school finished fifth in the eleven 
team league, a higher standing than ever before. 

The highlight of the season was surely the scoreless draw against Belmont, a 
team which had beaten the school 7-0 in the first round and eventually finish- 
ed second overall and went on to the B.C. championship. In that game 
brilliant play by the rookie goalkeeper Jennifer Scherer saved the team on 
many occasions. 

Special mention must be made of Sarah Elford who scored 90% of the 
team 's goals and of the captain Cathy Juricic who led a very strong defensive 
corps. To Cathy Juricic, Jennifer Scherer, Katy Rich, Jennifer Lamont, Julie 
Ford, Liz Ewart, Ann Gordon, and Christina Kay, all of whom are graduating 
this year I extend my deepest thanks for all their hard work and cheerfulness.

Squash '89 

This year, we held the I.S.A. squash tournament at the S.M. U.S. Racquet Club. Six teams from Vancouver Island 
and the mainland participated in this event. They included: St. Michael's. St. GeorgeS. Brentwood. Shawmgan. 
Glenlyon-Norfolk. and Collingwood. ^ ,. „ , , , wt^ n„„,„ 

Each team was composed of five plovers. Our representatives this year were Colin Brown (captain). Mike Brown. 
Sunil Joneja. Scott McQueen, and Giles Bodlev-Scott. The team first played Glenlyon-Norfolk where it had a strong 
performance to win 5-0. This victorv advanced the team to the semi-finals to square off against St. George s from Van- 
couver St. George's had a good side but we managed to secure another 5-0 win. The team was now m the final where it 
would play the winner between Brentwood and Shawnigan. Brentwood was favoured to win the contest butShawmgan 
played well to pull an upset and advance to the finals. In the finals, the team played perhaps the best of the season 
securing another 5-0 victory and capturing the I.S.A. title. ... .^. ,. ,.,.„ ,„ ,,„k. w. 

All together, the team played forty-five matches and gave up only a single game. The team would like to thanK Mr 
Featherstone and the S.M. U.S. Racquet Club squash pro. Phil Green, for putting in the time to transport the team to 
various matches and to organize a very successful tournament. 




B.R.: Mr. Cummings, Suzie Wall, Beth Middleton, Julie McLay, J. Valdez, Doc. Harvey. 
F.R.: Michelle Pollard, Pam Lewis, Rodger Bannister, Andrew Boraston, Alex She. 

Well another hurried season in which the usual incompletions resulted - we never did get a mixed tourney off 
the ground, we never did get enough formal response to run a girls tourney, we never concluded the boys event, 
we never "really" did beat Lambrick Park, we never quite won the B.C. Event. All that said, I firmly believe that 
this has been the most successful team I have had the privilege of being with as "coach." 

To digress somewhat, numbers or stats as many of you may realize are not at my fingertips or are they my forte, 
but . . .I'm sure we have a winning record, I know we placed second in the Island Championships and fifth in 
the Provincials. 

Our first squad showed much improvement, control and sportsmanship over the season. Considering the number 
of tourneys (Grand Prix events included) that many of our opponents engaged in. Our boy's performances were 
magnificant. Serge showed he could hit with the best, Frazure in mixed doubles showed confidence and poise and 
the tandem of Mark and Sasha came to the wonderful realization that with just a few more basics and a little more 
aggression they would be very much in the hunt. 

Our girls continue to give us credibility. Catherine played well in singles and mixed but found her opponents tougher 
than the previous year. Julie and Michelle continued to excel. Pam and Susie showed potential. My special thanks 
to Beth Middleton, Tina Carrington, and Nalini Joneja who played sparingly for the A team. 

My special thanks to everybody for a wonderful season with a most fitting conclusion. The van in the Eaton car- 
park, the Labradors head out the window, the aimless wandering looking for the right restaurant or the appropriate 
7-11 or the circle K all kept me very much alive. Thanks . . .

Track & Field 


Sr. Girls 

This year's volleyball season has had its "ups and 
downs" but overall was a success. We finished the 
season with some well played victories over many of 
the larger ' 'AA ' ' schools but narrowly missed win- 
ning a berth in the "A" Island Finals. Ending the 
season on a more positive note, we travelled to 
Brentwood for the I.S.A. Championships where we 
finished 3rd in the 8 team tournament: our best 
showing at that tournament in 4 years. Graduating 
players Doris Hsu, Ann Gordon, liana Porzecan- 
ski, and especially team captain Jennifer Scherer - 
perhaps the best women's volleyball player this 
school has seen - will be greatly missed. The strong 
contingent of returning players - Homa Amin, 
Robin Coombes, Niamh Donnelly, Nadia Herb, 
Justine Jung, Christy Madson, Vanessa Richards, 
Tamara Rusnak, and of course team manager 
Nalini Joneja - make next season something to look 
forward to. 

G. Marchand 

The Junior Girls volleyball team cannot boast about win- 
ning any championships, but can be noted as a team that 
had a good time and showed improvement all season. Our 
first game was a 15-0 loss, but, by season's end, we were 
winning games and had become a threat to several of the 
other schools. Our team was led by setters Liz Walton and 
Melanie Fike, and by hitters Chris Tyson and J obi Norman. 
The team choir (led by power sopranos Jessica Wooliams 
and Ayelet Porzecanski) hit musical highs singing on the bus 
to and from games. Danielle Topliss and Duffy Thoss shared 
top honours with Mr. McGavin for the season's worst 
"groaners." We even convinced Rachel Phillips that playing 
volleyball with shoes on is better. Our grade 9 players, Susan 
Campbell, Alayne Dawlings and Lisa Garwood will form the 
nucleus of next year's team and we look forward to their 
return and an even better season.

Middle School Director's Foreword 

This has been an "up" year for the Middle School, having weathered 
the storms of transition inherent in moving and establishing a new 
campus last year. I use the word "up" in reference to one of the 
highlights of 1988-89 - our premiere musical theatre production of "The 
Upside of Down ' ' which consolidated team spirit with faculty and 
students as only an undertaking of this magnitude can do. 

Our accomplishments were not limited to the fine arts although I 
would hail the accomplishments of our 42 member Orchestra, the 
School Choir and Stage Band to mention some of our musical groups 
who have contributed to many festive occasions over the year. 

The Middle School Swim team won every stage of competition entered 
this year, culminating in the Championship trophy. We anticipate an 
even stronger finish in field sports in the coming year with the com- 
pletion of the new all-weather playing fields scheduled for this summer. 
The Grade 8 Math team excelled in the Canadian National 
Mathematics League Competition placing 1st in B.C. and 2nd in 
Canada, losing 1st place by only one point to Zion Heights. The Grades 
7 and 8 teams succeeded in recapturing a first place finish at both 
grade levels in the Gauss Mathematics Contest. 
In the International Computer Solving Contest our Grade 6 team 
placed 1st in Canada and third in the World. 

Our accomplishments have been many but I believe that the most outstanding was the unification of staff and 
students into a "family" group who shared our "ups" and "downs" over the past year in a spirit of cooperation 
and dedication. The staff of Middle School deserves credit for giving unselfishly of their time and talents to make 
this year a memorable one. 

To our Grade 8 class who will be moving on to the Senior Campus, I wish them every success in the future. This 
is a group of highly talented young people who will continue to be an invaluable asset to S.M.U.S. and shall be 
greatly missed at Middle School. 

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Middle School this year. I look forward to even better things next 
year remembering that - "success is getting up just one more time than you fall down."

J 989 was the first year S.M. U. has had a midget boys soccer team and, considering all the difficulties, the boys had a tremendous 
season competing against metro team players. The most outstanding effort was shown against Arbutus. The boys held Arbutus, the 
eventual winners, to a 4-2 score after taking a quick two-goal lead and holding on until the last 10 minutes. There were some excellent 
individual efforts: however, the team was outstanding especially at the seven aside tournament, where they won the 'B' division

The 1988/89 season marked the beginning of an elementary league for 
the independent schools. The need for a separate league was prompted by 
a decision of Greater Victoria Elementary Schools Athletic Association 
(G. V.E.S.S.A.) to exclude independent schools from all athletic competi- 
tions at the elementary level. For the Under-13 Soccer team, the new 
league included one team from each of Glenlyon-Norfolk School, Pacific 
Christian, St. Andrews, St. Patricks and two from St. Michaels Middle 
School. The S.M. U. Second team was later disbanded due to other com- 
mitments and waning interest. 

This year's St. Michaels team comprised a group of fifteen young and 
enthusiastic players with the greater part of the team comingfrom Grade 
6. Although we approached the season as one of re-building, the school 
placed second in the league winning four games and losing one. 

The same fifteen also participated in the annual Canadian Independent 
Schools Boys Under-13 Invitational Soccer Tournament which was held 
this year in Montreal. The host schools. Lower Canada College and 
Selwyn House entertained us royally and treated us to an outstanding 

During the course of our week-long stay, 
the team visited Ottawa where we stayed at 
Ashbury College, toured the Parliament 
Buildings and marvelled at the exhibits in 
Ottawa's Science Centre. In Montreal, the 
team was treated to a rare look at the inner 
workings of the Forum where we watched 
the Canadians practise, walked among its 
rafters and viewed the arena from the press 
and television perspective. Later in the week 
we witnessed the Canadians playing their 
season home opener. 

The sights of Old Montreal including 
Notre Dame, the Opera House, City Hall 
and a video arcade as well as a stroll through 
Mount Royal's park and a brief look at 
Olympic Stadium were among the many 
events that we enjoyed together as a team. 
Adding to the richness of the experience 
were the associations with billeting host 
families and, of course, the tournament 

Although S.M. U. lost its first two games on the opening 
day, we managed to reorganize and revitalize to go 
undefeated on the second day tying Lower Canada Col- 
lege (tournament winners) and winning the next two 
games. A win to open the third and final day placed us in 
a semi-final match which we lost by one goal to Ashbury 

All in all the season proved to be far more statistically 
successful than one might have predicted. The greatest 
success, however, came with our overall growth as a 
team, and it is an exciting prospect that nine members of 
the team are returning to play on the same team next

Despite difficulties with fields and a lack of opposition, the cricket group turned out quite regularly on Mondays, Wednesdays and 
also on Saturday mornings between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon. 
Nine played for Victoria U-15 versus Vancouver on \fay 28 and enjoyed a day out across the water.

Grade 8 fielded two fantastic XV-aside teams: the Aztecs and the Warriors, and both met with great success, yet op- 
posite results. 

To put it gently, the Aztecs never won a game, but from the smiles of the joint captains, Sameer Kajani and Bradley 
Chewpoy, you would never have guessed! They would both emerge from the mud grinning and pretending to complain 
that there did not exist a team weak enough to beat. Mr. Jones suggested the Kindergarten team, ably coached by Mr. 
Yorath, but luckily for the Aztecs, they were having afternoon naps on play days! 

The Aztec success lay in their indefatigable energy and true spirit, never giving up, always smiling and a lot of that 
from ' 'chaps ' ' who only just started playing for the first time. 

The Warriors won nearly all their games, but the results paled by comparison to their spirit and camaraderie for each 
other. In a series of games against Esquimalt, each week the opposition got larger and larger, until eventually their 
beards gave them away. I remember one evening game at Esquimalt when they wanted us to play longer because they 
were pressing and about to score. So we played longer and we scored from Hywel Jones, and they failed to!! 

In I.S.A. play, S.M. U. Warriors lost their only game 6-9 to St. Georges. However, we struck such fear in the Saints 
that they refused to travel over to play us at home! 

Great games followed in what turned out to be a terrible winter, closing with an I.S.A. Championship clinched at 
Shawnigan Lake (good name for their field, or ours!!!) That final game was almost an International with a team so 
polished and skilled and with tries from Jamie Grier - Scotland: Satoshi Kikuchi - Japan: and Alejandro Skipsey - 

The public schools 9-a-sides saw our under 130 lb. team finish 3rd in the city but 1st in everyones mind due to splen- 
did rugby skills. Mt. Newton again was our nemesis, but oh how close it was . . . 

We closed the season with a Banquet in which we 
honoured the Captains: Robin Forbes and Jamie Grier for 
an excellent job. The 1 988-89 season had seen the emergence 
of a light, fast, powerful rugby team quick to team and ex- 
citing to watch, backed by a second team full of keen 
dedicated players. When these Grade 8s become grade Us 
and combine with the existing Grade 9's, S.M.U. will have 
its finest rugby teams ever fielded. 

Let us work together, therefore, for a world tour in 1992! 

Good luck all of you and thanks for letting us work with

Girls Division of the Victoria Basketball 
Association, the nine girls participating on 
this year's S.M.U. team performed very 
well. Although no championships were 
won. the team displayed excellent sports-

Of particular note was the improvement in 
shooting skills by Nancy Marks, the ability 
to drive to the basket by Kristen Dawson

V.I.S.A.A. Midget Badminton Tournament which was held at the Racquet Club June 3rd to 5th, Our results were exceptional! 
Not only did our team capture first place in the tournament but also, out of five separate events. St. Michael's won three and 
finished second in four others. Perhaps the most encouraging aspect of the badminton season was the fine performance of our 
grade six students. Chris Pollock, Wayne Chen, and Tim Stevenson performed admirably against older, more experienced opposi- 
tion and will, next year, form the nucleus of what is certain to be another very strong badminton team.

Life at Middle School! 




Dear Mr. Mulroney: 

I'm a British Columbian citizen, I'm 13 and my 
name is Sharon. 

Recently in socials class we've been studying about 
"Our Threatened Planet". During these classes, I 
have had a strong interest particularly with our 
forestry problem. I think what we are doing is wiping 
out our heritage, and probably the only thing in our 
world which can come close to perfection. Not only are 
we leading to more problems of the ' 'Green House Ef- 
fect" but we are robbing our future generations of see- 
ing the beauty of our forests. 

As a Canadian, I have put faith in our government, 
however reality can not occur through one govern- 
ment. The countries of our world have to work 
together. The citizens cannot rely on one government 
to save the world. 

I feel that our governments are sincere in their hopes 
of preventing this problem, but some action must be 
taken, that's why I'm writing this letter to you. Being 
13, sometimes your opinion is shuffled amongst the 
adults, but that doesn 't mean that we can 't try. 

As John Lennon once wrote "Imagine there's no 
countries, it isn't hard to do". In honest opinion I ad- 
mit that this idea is hard to imagine, but that does not 
enable our countries to work together. For example: - 
if the Canadian government were to send money, or 
equipment to assist the South Americans in other oc- 
cupations (fishing, irrigation, etc.) In exchange the 
world would be receiving oxygen. 30% of the world's 
oxygen. But not just oxygen, but the prevention of 
"The Greenhouse Effect" and we would be carrying 
on our heritage and pride. 

I do however, realize that these ideas are hard to 
make reality. But if something isn't done, then this 
whole planet is of no use. The results of deforestation 
are nemeless. As one song writer once wrote "All I 
need is the air that I breathe". Truthfully, one man 
would need more to satisfy his needs, but without the 
air we breathe, there is no life. And with that one 
thought, just one simple sentence comes death. Death 
of every living thing, object and matter. 

I feel that everyone should live his life fully without 
fear, but people should be taking a stand once in a 
while for what they believe in. 

Yours truly, 

Sharon Janzen 


Ottawa, KIA 0I\2 
April 10, 1989 

Dear Sharon, 

Thank you very much for your letter sharing with 
me your concern for Canada's environment. I regret that I 
was unable to respond earlier. 

Please let me assure you that I, too, share your 
concerns. Hy colleagues and I are working to ensure that 
you, as the future of this country, have an environmentally 
safe and secure land to pursue your goals and dreams. 
Despite all the initiatives that my Government has 
implemented since I have become Prime Minister, I know that 
there is much more work to be done. Vou may rest assured 
that these issues will remain foremost in our minds as we 
carry out our responsibility of providing a secure future 
for all Canadians. 

Again, thank you for taking the time to write and 
for bringing your views on this issue to my attention. The 
concern you have shown for your nation and the world around 
you reassures me that, in future generations, Canada will 
be left in caring hands. 

With every good wish.

The gentle sound of the passing water drifts 

Slowly by my unstable vessel. 

Suddenly, a huge wave crashes against me. 

Then another, then another. 

My heart pounding in unison with the merciless 

Whitecaps as they splash against my pale face. 

The fear of capsizing envelops me. 

I grip the paddle as though it were my life 

My arms rock rapidly back and forth. 

As does the weak and helpless craft 

Upon which I am suspended. 

Yet the rest of me remains frozen. 

Then, a sinister shape emerges from the water. 

And rears it's ugly head. 

A week's training and practice reduced to one 

Brief moment of impact. 

The tower of water draws nearer and nearer. 

Unavoidable, invincible, a monument to impregnability. 

A wave to some, but a menace to me. 

The question remains, "Will I capsize or not?" 

And my self-respect hanging in the balance. 

Nearer it draws. 

Then, the moment of impact, eyes shut tightly 

Teeth clenched. 

The kayak is tossed by this aquatic monster. 

The nose of the craft is airborne, but not for long 

With a second mighty crash, the vessel once 

Again meets the river, and drifts into calmer water. 

"I did it. I didn't tip!" I say to myself, as I 

slowly paddle ashore. 

A victory, not a very large victory, but a 

Victory nonetheless.

Round and round wind is whirling 

Dust and leaves sent a 'swirling 

The hideous thing whirling round and round 

Is now descending upon a town 

It lifts up roofs and tears up sheds 

Flying by are roomless beds 

People foolish not to take shelter 

Are now being blown helter skelter 

Enough to drive any man insane 

This ruthless thing is a Hurricane

The air was suddenly filled with that howling shrill of the air raid shelter alarms as Adulf Gorgatchet sat helplessly in 
the small grimv bathroom of his two room apartment. His cragally old wheelchair had tipped over in his effort to rush 
from his home to the air raid shelter. He was a man of about 32 but he looked more like 60. His hair was unbrushed 
and appeared to be a silvery grey, he had large white eyebrows and deep chestnut brown eyes, his face somehow 
although he was young was pale and wrinkled, but despite his old appearance he still seemed to be young. 

Kimbit Gorgatchet had been Adulf Gorgatchet' s wife until a Japanese bombing had killed her while she was driving 
in her car. Now one may think that Adulf was in the wheelchair because he seemed so old but that is not so for when 
he was a young boy ofjiist nine a huge timber truck had driven over his legs making him a cripple for life. You may also 
think that this was quite tragic but to Adulf it was just life. 

In the beginning he hated being cooped up like a chicken in a wheelchair, but as he matured his thoughts changed 
about his wheelchair from bad to good ones, for he could get around faster than walking and had special privileges in 
public places. 

As Adulf sat there listening to bombs explode around him his mind went back to the mountains. The beautiful 
mountains with the tall majestic trees to the lovely ferns and wild flowers. 

He remembered the deep blue sky and puffy' clouds floating through the clouds. He pictured the clear green glacial 
streams and the worn boulders. Boom! One of the bombs had come too close -just one measely bomb had ended Adulf 
Gorgatchet 's life!

10 Feet Deep 
Johnny's Point of View 

The sun arises from the dead, 

I wish that I was there instead 

Where the birds chirp 

And the music plays. 

But that place is only a dream, 

A haze. 

For I am a runaway. 

Not of night. 

Not of day. 

I used to have dreams 

Now I only pray. 

Not for fortune, not for fame. 

But that no other will follow me 

In this deadly game. 

If your eyes fall upon me in the street, 

Do not turn your face. 

Or look at your feet. 

For I am your son. 

Not a moral outcast. 

Your daughter, 

A shadow of your youth years in the past. 

Do not look at my appearance. 

Look at my soul. 

For it is deep. 

Deeper than a 10 foot hole. 

Look at me and think. 

Look at me and ponder. 

Why are you here? 

Why do you wander? 

Your children are at home. 

Crying out in their sleep. 

Do not let them fall. 

Fall into this hole - 10 feet deep.

Taking a piece of land and turning it into something respectable is a great feat. Growing a population from a few 
peoples is another. How did we do things like these? What sparked us? . . . The spirit! The spirit of Canada! 

Our spirit is shown by all Canadians striving for the goodness of Canada. This Spirit has enabled us to take gigantic 
waterfalls and rivers and turn them into not just beautiful sights but sources of hydro-electricity. This same spirit 
that controls Canada has guided men and women into transforming flat lands into farms and fields supplying Canada 
with food, feeding us and our children. 

This wonderful spirit has not just gifted the present, it has gifted the future as well! Our children are growing up 
influenced by this spirit all around them, the land, their parents (who are the creators of the present), their friends, 
and also every Canadian food, or material all around, which they consume. 

Truly all these wonderful things are exciting and needed, but most of all they are Canadian Spirited! Such as spirit 
is too good to be just held on to, it should and is a part of us! But with a gift so great, when and how can we celebrate 
it? CANADA DAY! With as much joy and happiness as we have inside us.

Dolls, stuffed animals, pompons, posters and lace. 

Even a hot pink palm tree would fit in this place. 

My past and my secrets are kept in these walls. 

And my dreams are revealed to no one at all. 

It's a place where I up and tell my troubles too, 

A place I can figure out what to do. 

At night, when I'm scared, its hold on me tightens, 

This is one place I could never be frightened! 

This room has seen me try. 

This room has seen me cry. 

It has seen me struggle and crawl. 

It's also seen me fight and fall. 

This place holds all my secrets. 

That no one else should know. 

My room is my escape from the world. 

When I have no other place to go.

Growing up - 

How similar it is 

To a butterfly, emerging from it cocoon 

New life, new love - new ideals 

How could one explain this moulding of character? 

It is a time of need 

The need to be accepted for what you are - 

Not what you should be. 

It is a time of confusion - and of pain - and of anger . . . 

So many times have I lashed out without meaning 

Lashed out from this cocoon - this shell 

In which I do not belong. 

Growing up - 

It is a time when innocence is blackened - 

It seems as though one 's life has been torn from its grasp 

Have you no decisions of our own? 

It is a raging torrent of emotions 

That engulf and hide away reality 

Until there is nothing . . . nothing . . . 

As I look out my window 

I see some children playing 

On the sidewalk 

And I get a feeling 

Of what is meant by 

Growing up.

What a silly game 

That drives me so insane 

Girls oh ... so big and tall 

Bouncing that silly little ball 

Like a domestic pet 

Get it into that net 

With a thud of a sound 

And wrestling to the ground 

Scratch, kick and a punch in the eye 

Foul, foul that coaches cry 

mi the referee calls 

As she comes out with no ball 

Five fouls 

The referee growls 

To the bench I go sit 

How much I love to hit 

From the bench a yell and scream 

Get it movin ' your a team 

The coach gives a yell of madness 

We then gave him a whine of sadness 

The slapping of the hands when the game was won 

Oh! how much it can be fun 

So it came 

We didn 't have fame.

An eerie mist rose over the lagoon. 

Where the water is as deep as the day is wide 

Grass like seaweed sway, caught in the crevasses of the rocks 

And the gentle waves lap up against the sandy shores; 

Saying adoringly "come Black and White One in all your 

mortal glory 

Come and have pity upon us. 

For we are merely humble ones. " 

Unlike years past the black and white one does not come. 

The bounty of the sea and her native home. 

Are unattainable now 

For she no longer lies upon the sea 

But in that whaler's house 

Yet her soul is still light. 

Burning bright as I write. 

For she is now but fuel for lights. 

by Melanie Scrivens 



"Computers are everywhere", says the lady alligator on television commercials. She is right, computers are everywhere. In the home, the office 
and the school, wherever one goes they are always present. ' ' Without computers there would be no computer class ", says Christopher Wilson, grade 
8 student at SMU. He also is correct, computers play a vital role in education, they allow teachers to quickly and easily compile and record scores of 
scores and multitudes of marks. But should computers be used to write English essays? No! 

Throngs of students will complain: "But computers help us get our spelling right when we are being verbose". This is true, but by letting the 
computer spell for you you lose the art of being able to spell independent of machines. For example, if you were shipwrecked on a desert isle in- 
habited by only a tribe of sadistic pygmies who asked you to write down the lengthy name of their village, insisting that you get the spelling perfectly 
correct, but you had insisted on using a computer to write your essays, and so could not spell, what would you do? Good spelling is important 
in later life, and to survive in later life it is one thing you must have. 

"But computers are so neat and tidy", moan these same throngs of computer loyal students. This is true, but this universal sameness that links 
all computer print can lead to the forgery of essays by the more unintelligent, if enterprising, students. The issue of forgery is very imporiant because 
if the student gets away with this forgery time and time again he will not develop the ability to write a good comprehensive essay. If this talent 
is not learnt, then the student, in later life will not be able to compete with those students who paid attention in class and wrote their own essays. 
Because they cannot compete they will not get the high paying jobs on the job market and will be forced to live in squalour with a screaming wife 
and child. For the student's own protection computer-written essays should not be allowed. 

Many teachers do not allow essays to be written on a computer, for the above legitimate reason. If a student coming from a school where such 
things were allowed, handed in an essay written on a computer it might not be taken in. Think then of the poor student, he did do the assignment 
but he gets no marks for it and probably a detention as well. If the assignment had been really important his mistake might really have cost him. 
His mark would plummet taking his term average and his year average with it. To stop this horrible, terrible event from occuring all schools should 
ban the handing in of computer written assignments. 

Most important of all, by writing his assignments on a computer an aspiring student is sacrificing ability to think creatively. Channeled into 
one way of doing things he would be unable to write documents on anything other than a computer. He would become a computaholic , unable 
to let creative thoughts gush from his head to his pen and then onto his paper. Without this essential creative thinking he would not be able to 
become a scientist, an artist, an author, a politician, a musician, a drawer of political cartoons, a journalist, an executive, an artisan or worker 
in any other job requiring an imaginative ambitious approach. Destitute of any ability to deviate from the normal, the individual would become 
a walking zombie of society. This is a horrible fate and should be avoided at all costs. 

As you can see. it is a terrible thing to allow students to hand in English essays done on a computer. It can cause students to grow to be all 
manner of horrible things in adult life, a stew for sadistic pygmies on a desert isle, an infamous forger, a high school dropout, or even a "Zombie 
of Society". All these outcomes are. you must agree, highly undesirable and the only way to prevent them is to competely disallow any computer 
written work.

It loomed over the dark, deserted road casting an eeiie, supernatural beam of light. The smog which hung in the air blurred 
the radiant beam which illuminated the dark street ahead. Although purposeless to the city people, the lamp was very useful for 
the animals of the night. The lamp is the life of the dark city.

See the green ivy, its vines touch the sills; 

Its leaves clog the gutters, and the drain pipes it fills. 

See the Exocet missile, its gracefiil shape shows; 
At the end of its journey, a village it blows. 

I passed a rain puddle while walking today; 
With beautifiil colours that seemed to say: 
"Look how I play, and reflect the light 
Because of an oil spill during the night."

Growing up 

As I look back. 

On the years that have passed, 

I think about the things I haven't done; 

All the things I wish I could have stopped. 

All the things that I would change. 

But why do that? The past is past. 

What's done is done. 

So I try to look back, 

on the things that fun. 

On my friends that helped me when I was down; 

On the things I'm glad I did. 

But then again, why do either one? 

For why should I dwell on my past. 

When I have a future? 

So I'll make things work, 

And do what I will. 

And look to the future. 

Instead of the past.

Middle School Mathematics 

At the grades 7 and 8 levels, there are four competitions in which St. Michaels participates. The Canadian National Mathematics League 
(C.N.M.L.) provides two nation-wide contests, one at each of the grade levels. We also compete in a grade 7 and 8 Gauss Mathematics Contest 
conducted each year by the Lniversit)- of Waterloo. 

In the C.WM.L. competitions our grade 7 team (comprising Andrew Pospisilik, Cassandra Miller. Caroline Gainor. Jonathan Aquino, Paul 
Saffrey and James Clapp) finished 1st in the district. 7th in B.C. and 12th of over 800 schools competing across Canada. At the grade 8 level, 
the team (comprising Jahangir Charania. Chris Wilson, Jeremy van Raamsdonk, Anna Leong. Danny Curran, and Andrew Betts) placed 1st 
in B. C. and 2nd in all of Canada. Individually. Jahangir Charania received a 2nd place finish in B.C. and 4th in Canada: Chris Wilson was 
4th in B.C. and I2th in Canada, while Jeremy van Raamsdonk earned a 7th place provincially and a 21st finish in Canada. 

Our grade 7 and grade 8 teams earned highest honours to regain the championships in both levels of the Gauss competition. In each of the 
grades, eleven of our students received honour-roll recognition for placing in the top 10 per cent. Three grade 7 students: Cassandra Miller, 
Paul Saffrey and Gavin Zacks tied for second overall. 

In addition, our grade 8 mathematicians participated in the grade 9 Pascal and Atlantic Pacific contests. They contributed greatly to S.M. V. 's 
success. The school earned a provincial 6th and national 13th place in the Pascal and a 3rd place nationally and 6th place Sorth American 
finish in the Atlantic Pacific contest. As well, a grade 8 team comprising Jahangir Charania, David Ha and Jessica Chant travelled with Mr. 
Goodwin to Toronto where they participated in the first annual Cross-Canada Mathematics Rally hosted by Zion Heights School. Through a 
variety of competitions, Jahangir finished 5th and Jessica's team earned 4th place. 

All of our students are to be congratulated for having achieved a high standard of understanding in mathematics. Special commendations 
go to those whose efforts have yielded the superlative aforementioned results.

Special Events 

Olympics of the Mind 

Seven Grade 7 & 8 students (Sean Puttergill, David Ha. 
Christopher Wilson, Brian Murphy, Jahangir Charania, 
Cassandra Miller, and Andrew Pospisilik) spent many 
hours and days, after school and on Saturdays, preparing 
for the Vancouver Island Regional Olympics of the Mind 
Competition. This competition was held at Glenlyon- 
Norfolk School on April 18, with six teams competing 
against us in the Division II Cause and Effect Problem. 
Essentially, this problem involved using a billiard ball to 
set a chain of tasks or events in motion. Compulsory tasks 
included popping a balloon, pouring a defined quantity of 
water, causing the letters "OM" to appear, etc. 

Our team placed "first" in the spontaneous problem 
category, "third" in the long-term problem, and "second" 
overall; an excellent showing, especially considering this 
was our first attempt at this competition. We all had a lot 
of fun and learned a lot. Christopher Wilson is now an 
expert jigsaw operator! 

Wildlife Club 

The fledgling Youth for Wildlife Club was form- 
ed in February of this school year. Approximate- 
ly 20 students have joined this club, which was 
formed in cooperation with the Canada Life In- 
surance Company, to promote conservation of 
nature and the environment through public in- 
volvement from groups such as school students. 
We are looking forward to participating in many 
interesting and exciting conservation activities and 
outings in the up-coming year. 

A traditional "Mummer's Play" was performed by our 
students under the direction of Mr. Carey Ditmars. Perfor- 
mances were also held at the Newcombe Theatre. 




Music at Middle School got off to a good start in September 1988 with some 165 students involved in the instrumental programme. 

String students, who began the programme in Junior School, soon became accustomed to playing in larger ensembles under 
Mrs. Mary Smith, while predominently new students to S.M.U. formed two beginning wind ensembles in Grades 6 & 7 with 
the more advanced wind players being streamed in Grades 7 & 8 under the direction of new staff member Mr. John S. Reid. 

Choir, this year, met as an extra-curricular activity during the lunch recess and attracted approximately 50 students. Perfor- 
mances included the Christmas Concert held in our gymnasium, the S.M. U. Christmas Service held in Christ Church Cathedral, 
and the Prize Day Ceremony. 

An interesting addition to the choral scene was a hastily formed Grade 8 "Grad" choir, which, after only 5 rehearsals "Lean(ed) 
on Me" to the enjoyment of all present at our Prize Day Ceremony. 

Orchestra boasted 50 string, wind and percussion students selected from Grades 6, 7 and 8. The group met one period per 
week, performing at the Christmas Concert and providing the processional music on Prize Day. 

Stage Band, an extra-curricular activity, attracted 20 students and rehearsed throughout the second term, performing at both 
a morning assembly and at the Spring Fair. The choreographed "Woodchopper's Ball" provided a few headaches caused by 
the swinging trombones! 

String Ensembles. Under Mrs. Smith's direction, all grades took part in the Victoria Music Festival and placed first. All groups 
also performed individually and together at the Christmas concert, and the Grade 8 String Ensemble performed at both an assembly 
and at the Senior School Concert in May. 

Wind Ensembles. With only 2 1/2 months under their belts the Grade 6 & 7 beginners performed at the Christmas Concert 
much to the disbelief of some parents! Also appearing in the concert were the Grade 7 Advanced Ensemble and the 35 member 
Grade 8 Concert Band. Our Grade 8s also provided the music for our Remembrance Day Service in November, performed at 
the Spring Fair (together with the Grade 7 Advanced Ensemble and the Stage Band), opened the Senior School Concert, and 
closed the Prize Day ceremony with our "School Hymn", "God Save the Queen" and recessional "Fanfare and Fugue".

"/ have played in many things but nothing comes close to the ap- 
plause, to the feeling of love for those I work with, than to that final 
bow on the final night. ' ' Some of the incidents that made the show 
so special: 

Hywel Jones: his stage fright and brilliance. 

Louise Lydon: her energy and love of her fellow actors. Her initial inability to read her lines followed by being the first one to know them. 
Kim Wahl: "but I can't roller skate!" She did and she chewed gum so voraciously, 
lija Herb: I can't, 1 shan't, but he did and created a great character. 
Bill Rondow: did this brilliant chap really act? 
Anthony Detrano: Good God, you were good. 

Caroline Gainor: the little actions on stage that show your potential as a brilliant actress. 
Ian Druce and Malhew Fninklm: for their continual suppori and ideas during show rehearsals. 
Alison Burdelt: taking the dancers onto the tennis courts for practice. 

Sameer Kajani: the gentleman proving that anyone can dance his way to fitness through music. 
Steven Price: this Casanova 's walk to pick up yet another girl. 
Adrienne Price: attempting to say ' 'promiscuousth ' ' 
Jessica Chant: fitness instructor again, and let's steam train those lines. 
Ale.x Furiodo and Sharon Janzen: did they really act? 
Amy Lenk and Chris Drohomirecki: being much smaller than Ilja. 

I could go on and on. The beauty of a great show like this is that you will never forget, you will tell your children with a few embellishments, 
and you will tell your grandchildren and by that time you may have realized the power of what you did and grandma Louise will think it funny 
that she was so good playing the devil.

When first asked to speak at this occasion I remembered the story of the student who had undertaken an intensive program of study skills. Unfortunately the 
only skill remembered was how to summarize. That skill was practised and pracrtst'J until the student was so good at summarizing lectures that a one-hour lecture 
could eventually be reduced to three paragraphs. Come exam time, the student was keen to try out this new skill, and so spent hours in preparation. In fact, sum- 
maries were made from summaries, to paragraphs, to key words, and in the end. after constant reduction, the student was left with one single word. 

Unfortunately upon entering the exam room the student promptly forgot the word! 

Having been the recipient of many a long-winded speech. I know how they are quickly forgotten, however 1 want to use one aspect of that story in the hope 
that the words and ideas will remain with you a little longer. 

Students at St. Michaels. I'm sure you've realized that this world can be full of seduction and illusion. We don't often see the times of emptiness and loneliness 
which accompanies those holding political office, the fleeting fame of the pop and movie star, and of the sporis hero: the images porirayed in TV commercials 
creating enough dissatisfaction and unhappiness that we actually helieve that our lives will be better off by being seen driving that new sporis car. wearing those 
designer clothes or having a Club Med experience. 

In this world of technological wizardry, of FAX machines, electronic bugging devices from space. I want to leave with you several straightforward ideas and 
words of simplicity. Ideas that, if applied to others, will result in far greater personal benefit than anything you can buy from The Bay. Batons. Sears and Value 
Village combined. 

By the way of focussing on simple concepts I'd like to read an excerpt from a speech given at a recent Canadian conference. I've entitled it " 20 significant learn- 
ings". I quote: 

"Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do and how to be. I learned in kindergarien. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate 
school mountain, but there in the sandbox at nursery school. 


1. Share everything. 

2. Play fair. ' 

3. Don 't hit people. 

4. Put things back where you found them. 

5. Clean up your own mess. 

6. Don 't take things that aren 't yours. 

7. Say you're sorry when you huri somebody. 

8. Wash your hands before you eat. 

9. Basic sanitation and remembering to flush. 

10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. 

11. Live a balanced life. 

12. Learn some and think some and draw every afternoon. 

13. When you go out in the world, watch for traffic, hold hands and stick together. 

14. Be aware of wonder. 

15. Remember the little seed in the plastic cup. The roots go down and the plant comes up and nobody really knows how or why. but we are all like that. 

16. Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the plastic cup — they all die. So do we. 

17. Remember the book about Dick and Jane and the first word you learned, the biggest word of all: LOOK. 

18. Everything you need to know is somewhere. 

19. The Golden Rule — do unto others as they would do unto you. 

20. Ecology and politics and some living. 

Think of what a better world it would be if we all - the whole world - had cookies and milk about 3 o 'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets 
for a nap. Or if we had a basic policy in our nations to always put things hack where we found them and cleaned up our own mess And it is still true, no matter 
how old you are. when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together. " End of quote. 

During the months March through July. I. along with four colleagues, have on behalf of the Board of Governors collected information from staff, parents and 
students focussed on student needs at St. Michaels. To those who took part in that study, a sincere thank you. We (as external consultants) have benefitted from 
reading your thoughts and collective wisdom. If I were to put all the words into a blender and extract the essence, some very simple ideas emerge: Ideas from the 
staff were: Look, we have needs and students have needs. Ideas from the parents were: Thank you staff, and we do recognize the changing needs of students. From 
the Students: Listen, we have things to tell you. 

The lost an of listening: It's sometimes puzzling to think that we need to go to university to learn effective communication skilb. Is it that in the process of 
education we lost the skills somewhere? True listening is not advice giving. Listening is not saying what you think I feel. Listening is not going ahead and solving 
my problem for me. We all need to remember that advice is cheap. If you read Ann Landers, you know it can be bought daily for 40 cents. Advice offered is most 
often actively disregarded. 

You see. when someone says how they feel, we need to genuinely accept it. HTicn my daughter said two days ago. "Daddy, when you're not looking at me. I 
think you 're not listening. ' ' I was reminded that from her 8-year old view, she needed to see my full physical attention to know I was truly listening. 

I 've often wondered if that 's why prayer works. Perhaps it is because God is mute and doesn 't rush in to give advice or fix things. He listens, and lets you work 
it out for yourself. 

So when someone next time says, "please listen and just hear me", - stop. wait, listen, and who knows, maybe they'll listen to you in return. 

How is it in this complex and wonderous world, we are still apt to so easily forget the very things that make us human, that build connections between us. This 
notion of thinking carefully about relationship building was not lost on one Grade 10 student who wrote in the study when asked what is one key message to teachers 
you'd like to have recorded in this siudx^ She wrote: "Be excellent to each other. " To the same request, another Grade 10 student said: "Make every day a day 
where you look at a student for the first time and pretend you have never met. " 

These students were talking about prizing each other, thanking each person that they are here and that their existence is valid, recognized and imporiant: regardless 
of the honours or awards you have won or the numbers of teams you have captained. We need to be excellent more often to one another. We all need to say thank 
you a little more, to intentionally include others, to reach out. to demonstrate. 

Before you leave this event, I encourage you to reach out. If you're talking to a teacher, thank them for their instruction; and teachers, thank the students 
for their listening. Wish friends good holidays. Thank parents for their suppori. Don't miss opportunities to be excellent to each other. 
Would the Graduating Students please stand. 

To those students who are leaving the Middle School, thank you for your contribution, and we all wish you well in your learning and continued development 
during Grade 9. Please remain standing. 
To the incomini^ Grade 8. would you please stand. 

To you students who are moving up to Grade 8. remember that with new responsibilities and privileges come new opporiunities. challenges, and enjoyments. 
We hope all these and more will come true for you. Please remain standing. 
Would the incoming Grade 6 & 7 please stand. 

To those incoming Grade 6 and those in Grade 7 you have an imporiant and vital role to play in the tone, creative energy and excitement within this School 
- my hope is that it be recognized, encouraged and channeled into fruitful endeavour. 

I'm sure the parents and staff would join with me in congratulating all students for their suppori, energy and work at this time. Please be seated. 
Would all parents and grandparents, uncles and aunts please stand. 

Only you and your children really know of the intensity of your suppori. your love and caring, your belief and vision. I'm sure the staff and students would 
want to publicly thank you for all these things and more. 
Would the staff please stand. 

To teach someone something that is useful and worihwhile is perhaps the greatest thing anyone on this earih can do. For your commitment, your energy, your 
wisdom and influence, the parents and students would like to express their thanks. 

So what are my brief words? Continue at ail costs to remain excellent to one another. 
Thank you.

Middle School Awards Ceremony 


Principal's Foreword 

This year, like any other year at the Junior School, has been full 
of activities for all youngsters from every age group. From 
Kindergarten returning with pumpkins from the pumpkin patch to 
the Grade five visit to Lester Pearson College and Race Rocks, our 
activities have been wide ranging. Who could ever forget Joanna 
dressed in a large orange survival suit at Race Rocks? 

The purpose of the Junior School is to introduce children into 
St. Michaels University School, and for all it stands. The idea is 
to have total involvement and participation in all activities by all 
students. Young children do not always offer to participate, 
however, I have found that if one can encourage total involvement, 
then enthusiasm and a desire to participate will follow. As a result, 
we have had a very successful school choir, made up of the entire 
school body, at the Cathedral Carol Service. The entire school also 
took part in our presentation of Captain Noah and His Floating 
Zoo. Both of these events were highly successful affairs, thanks 
to the hard work of all those concerned. 

The newest group to enter the halls of the Junior School are the 
Kindergarten children. I feel this has been a very happy experience 
for them. During the first week of school a very special bond grew 
between them and the Grade five class. This helped bring our 
youngest children into the life of the school and the youngsters had 
a group to look up to and go to for help. It was not unusual to the Grade fives either helping the youngest group 
find books in the library or playing with them and looking after them on the school grounds during recess. This addi- 
tion to the school was a very positive one for all concerned. 

The school year was extremely active. This is essential with the type of children who come to S.M. U.. Musical prac- 
tices abounded- for the Carol Service, Christmas Strings and Things and Captain Noah. There were many practises 
for the cross country meets we attended and the Intramural House League covered a multitude of sports activities. 
Manv class trips took place in order to stimulate the children's learning processes and to extend the idea of learning 
away from the classroom in order to show the children that learning is an ongoing process and does not just take 
place in the classroom. 

Through all the activities and changes in routine, the school staff performed as professionals. They are always giving 
their best effort in order to encourage the children into reaching forever greater heights. 
To all at the Junior School, I say goodbye and good luck in the years to come.

A sea shore glitters in the sunlight all day. Turquoise 
waters and sand shine in the sunlight. When the moon glows at 
night time, the sea shore is quiet, all you can hear is the 
waves moving around in the water swaying back and forth, bacK 
and forth until morning. When the sun rises on the sea shore 
it brings people and children playing in the water and on the 
sand spreading Joy around the beach. Some beaches have 
tropical fish swimming in the water, others have strong 
undertoes and no fish will roam there. Seaguls come to feed 
their young ones. Here in l/ictoria there are many sea shores 
with logs and rocks. I love coming to the beach with my family.

Dear Santasaurus. 

I have been a good dinosaur all year. 1 haven 't made any volcanoes erupt 
yet and I haven't fought Allosaurus yet. I would like a lifetime supply of hot 
chocolate so I can be warm at the ice age. I would also like some exercise 
equipment so I can beat the Allosaurus in fights. 1 would like a suit of fire 
so that 1 can melt all the ice when it's the ice age. I would really like a 
Tyrannosaurus jacket so I can show him I'm not afraid. 

Yours truly.

I really love my dad as a special person. 
He certainly isn 't a bore. 
He's not a businessman nor a parson. 
But I Uke him, (all but his SNORE!) 

As I said, he isn 't a bore. 

He doesn't drone on, he just chats. 

Even though he slams the door. 

He just goes bananas about our three cats!! 

He is an architect (a kind one too). 
And he likes to go to the petting zoo. 
He's helpful and he doesn't like to bake. 
But he's very helpful with EATING a cake!
