As the year draws to a close there arc z 
number of occasions when I and 
others contemplate the task of sum- 
marizing the whole great mass of 
events and accomplishments that 
has been this school year. So many 
students, so many successes large 
and small, and so little space. Ard 
every year, V/Vaf accepts this task an( 
does it so admirably. 

The Junior School, Middle School 
and Senior School all have so many 
opportunities for the students to 
display their various interests and 
talents. Occasions such as our 
whole school concerts, or the 
Christmas assembly, allow every- 
one in the school to get a sense 
of the sweep of experiences that 
our students are involved in. 
This book is a record of that 
sweep of experiences, in more 
detail, and in greater breadth. 

It has been a year when our 
sense of community has come 
to the fore on a number of occa- 
. sions. In the aftermath of cata- 

f J strophic world events last Sep- 
p« tember, our students, teachers, 
parents and alumni all had their 
moments of leaning on this 
diverse, embracing community 
which is ours. At the other end of 
the spectrum, our Spring Fair, 
which brought together so many 
families, students, faculty and staff 
inspired so many positive feelings 
of support and good cheer that it 
was impossible to go away from the 
day without a smile. 

I want to thank the students and faculty 
who spend many unsung hours putting 
together this book. It is a wonderful piece 
of work that you produce, and we are 
grateful for it. 



Well, here is the reason I took this job. I get a whole two pages to voice all my 

opinions, slander anyone I choose, and write as much controversial material 

as I can think of. I figure it is my editorial right. Actually, I don't really know why 

I took this job except for the fact that no one else would do it, really. The first 

time I sat down in the editorial chair, I realized that we had not missed one, two but actually three consecutive deadlines 

and were set to receive the books sometime in November (this of course, was with the delusion that something was going 

to get done). Today, these two pages are all that we have left to finish in this 233-page publication - and I can honestly 

say that I have had something to do with every single one of them. On this note, of course, if you find that we have 
misidentified you somewhere, or you find a couple of spelling mistakes, or a photo that hasn't been cropped properly I 
would like to extend a heartfelt "sorry" (with a small 's') - keep in mind, this really is harder than it looks. To all my 
friends, thanks for helping out with all and any menial tasks and keeping me company in the Yearbook room. Ms. 

Worth, thanks for your guidance and for never doubting that we could finish this (haha). And Peege, my o 

^^^ trusty steed, you know I could not have done this without you (that's right, it's all about ->/\. 

f%^ the sparkling conversation). All the same, I hope you enjoy the book and that ,, v,# ^ | ^ 

'S. a B y/^ ^ it has captured something of the year for you to look back on. ■< ^( ^ 9 

( -Anna Burianova 


This year, the yearbook has had more than its share of catastrophes. You would not be sitting there, carelessly flipping 
pages without the hard work of the yearbook crew. Considering the sheer size of this publication, there were surprisingly 
few people who put it together, and I would like to extend a huge thanks to all of them. DK who got us off on the right foot. 
Ann, Lavinia and all those hours with that 'expletive* grad section and everything else. Deanna, Claire, Kasim, Jaime and 
the borderline loss of sanity when it came to finding pictures for the middle school. Liz, Amanda and the junior school 
(enough said). Chantal, Clarence and the artsy part of this book. Evan and his single-handed mastery of photos. All the 
minions (Alex, Jimmy, Beckie, Whitney, Mike, Kaz, Jav, Vicky, Ash, yo mama etc) for all their moral support. And of course, 
PJ who did nothing... absolutely nothing (except for all the graphics in the entire book). 

On a more serious note, a huge thanks to Ms. Worth for keeping us in line; to Mr. Humphries, Mr. Marchand and Mr. Jackson 
for their support with photography; to our school computer technicians, Mr.Przybylski, Mr.Ross and Mr.Archer for 
continuously increasing our account space; to Ms. Card, Sandra Moore, Janice Iverson, and the accounting department.for 
their support; and our Junior and Middle School Coordinators Diana Nason and Connie Booth respectively for keeping the 
lines of communication open.

Looking like confetti sailing in the wind 
Making people feel peaceful. 


I Wish 

By Robyn Hope, 4G 

I wish I could own a farm 

So I could have a horse. 

I would saddle myself up. 

So the horse could ride me, of course. 

The horse would put me in a stable 
With cows, a chicken and a hen. 
If 1 could not get out. 
I would sleep in a pen.

It's Halloween! 

By Anna Willnis, Grade Ofie. 

I see a witch. 

I hear owls. 
I taste candy 

I feel my mask. 
I smell soup. 

By Taylor Moon, 5H 

Tight, tight, pull, pull 
And aiound the hooks and tie a bow 

I had just tied my skates 
So I walked up all the 

stairs and took off my guards, 
I stepped on the ice one foot at a time 
Then glided off, 

I felt excitement being on the ice again 
First the lesson, 
I can always hear the edges of my coach coming 
up behind me. 
But not today, so it's just me 
And the ice 
I spinned and twirled and looped and for my sui-prise, 
I heard the zambonie honked so it 
Was time to get off 
I put on my guards and went downt the stairs 
And took off my guards.

The Pencil Sharpener

Kids lining up to sharpen their pencils 

Buzz, buzz - there they go 

Now they're nice and sh;irp 

A gray machine is everything to a pencil 

It loses mv concentration. . 

If My Face Were Outer Space: 

By Jeffery Miller, Grade 3 

My head is Jupiter, fiery hot with an enormous spinning storm. 

My eyes would be moons with craters deep. 

My eyebrows would be spitting, shouting stars. 

My mouth would be a black hole sucking up the Milky Way. 

My forehead would be a rockship going to the moon. 

My ears would be satellites, looking at Jupiter. 

My teeth would be craters drifting in space. 

My nose would be an astroid belt heading for Earth. 

Olev Aniko. 5H 


The Beach 

By Claire Mackenzie 

I hear loud waves crash against the shore 
1 see a million seagulls maybe more 
I scoop up sand into my palms and let it run through my fingers 

I smell salt from the sea, a scent that always lingers 
I balance on rocks that have been washed to shore by the tide 
I build a sand castle with tall towers and pebbles on each side 

I feel a salty breeze blow through my hair 
The beach is full of tr^quillity. a beauty that is rare.

Sea Otter 

By Elizabeth Fenje, grade 5h 

As I stare into the sea so dark and blue. 
All of a sudden bubbles appear. 
Rippling our boat"s retlection. 
A little sea otter pops his head out of 

the water with a "splash." 
But he also has a rock and a clam in his paws. 
As I sit frozen with interest, he turns onto his 
back and starts to crack open his shell, 
"Click, Click, Click." 
Then with a final "bang!" 

It falls apart, with one swift motion 
He gobbles up the inside. "Slurp!" 
Then he dives down and picks up another one. 
Over and over again. 





Nathaniel Reid, 4J 

By Scott Dallen, 4D 

Transition is hard to learn 

Running long distances 

I did 5 major triathlons last year 

At transition you can lose a lot of time 

Transition time is critical 

Hydration is very important 

Losing 1 event could lower your confidence 

Only determination and practice gets you to 

the finish line 

Needs lots and lots of training 

Swimming, sweating, satisfaction

How did die 
bears get blapk 
noses? - 

By Derek Hyde-Lay. grade 2 

A long time ago bears had red noses. 
But there was a bear that wanted a black 
nose. So he went to lie under the black 
fiiiit tree on his back. Suddenly a fruit 
fell off the tree and hit him in the nose. 
That's how the bgargot a black nose. 


By Tavish Gudgeon, Grade 2 

I wanted to make a 

Snowman but it was Summer. 
Instead I made a dirt man 

And threw it at my brother. 


By Ross Prager, 4D 

In the pocket, 

I go along 

Musky smells and darkness 

Hand is lifting, up I go 

Balanced on stub, ready to go 

Feels like a barstool 

Wind is rushing 

Bang. I'm hit 

Flying higher and higher 

Dimples catch the air 

What can I see, what can I do 

Suddenly thump, I land on a green patch 

Scmed ready to be hit again 

Voice says "What a good shot" 

Plunk in the hole I go.

Benjamin Bartleti. Kindergarten 




By Emma Donald, Kindergarten 

There were no dinosaurs when people were alive! 

But how do scientists know about dinosaurs? 

How do scientists know how big dinosaurs' brains were? 

You might have seen a cartoon on TV that was about dinosaurs. 
"You might think that people were alive when dinosaurs were alive", said 
Emma. "But they werenlj!" 

Just imagine the world With dinosaurs. I couldn't imagine the world with 
dinosaurs on earth! 

Micheal Rossi, Kindergarten 

Once upon a time there w as a prince and a princess and 
there was a dog. "'Princess, we must sell our dog." "Look 
how much money we have made! I want to spend it." 

Serenity - Based on "The fall of the Cowboy" 

By Kate Peiffer. grade 5J 

The horses' s hooves crunched into the new fallen snow as the horses moved toward the gate. 
There was serenity as the men slowly and quietly tied up the creatures, 
A light breeze was blowing as a blanket of darkness fell o\ er the farm. 
Then the horses lay down to sleep, the men left, and everything was peaceful.

The Ghost Town 

Based on "View of Toledo" 

By Ben Effa, grade 5J 

Thunder booms in the ebony sky. 

A bolt of brilliant lightning cracks through the 

Sky. sending light across a desolate city. 

Darkness reigns. 

In the next flash, a deserted 

City can be seen. 

Clinging to the over-grown 

Hillside, the old city sits 

Crumbling, year after year. 

A palace sits in ruins, 

Its walls breaking down to blocks 

Of ancient marble. A screaming wind 

Blows through the luscious trees. 

Rustles through the wild untamed undergrow lli. 

Tragedy has struck this city.

The Ocean 

The tranquil waves 

Lapped against the side of the boat 

The candles burned brightly 

Under the darkening sky. 

A ring of honeyed light 

Surrounded the horizon, 

Pouring its golden rays 

Over the highlands. 

The air was cool 

Against my hollow cheeks 

The wind lightly 

Played with my hair.

I set the teacher's hair on fire. 


I put spiders in her cup. 


I cheated on my test. 


I burned down the school. 


Finally the weekend is here! 



Detention all year... 

Anne Penner 


The autumn leaves were colours of red and orange. 

The little rows of cottages had sweet smells 

Of freshly baked pumpkin pie drifting out of the windows. 

The scarewcrow stcmds still on the pumpkin patch. 

It's Hallowe'en, that's all he knows. 


Kids of all ages dress up in funny little clothes. 

When night time falls, they run around in the neighbourhood. 

With candy sack in one hand and flashlight in the other. 

They have no worries, but one. their mother. 

She stands there waiting, annoying them with her presence. 

When their tummies are full and they're pleased, they go to their beds. 

With the scan visions of monsters prancing around in their heads. 

That's it folks, nothing to see there. 

I'm just telling you the tale of the Hallowe'en scare!!

Grade Seven girls' volleyball team had a successful season in their league play 
placed fourth in the final tournament. Congratulations girls on your improved 
. wonderful enthusiasm and sportsmanship. 

This year, our girls' volleyball team took a few weeks to "gel"" and settle into a regular 
commitment to the team and to the sport. However, once we got into our season in October, 
the girls enjoyed themselves as their skills developed. By the end of the season, in spite of 
remaining w inless. the team had shown significant personal and group improvement. Some 
members even had the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the game by helping w ith 
scorekeeping for a Junior Girls" Volleyball tournament in the Senior School. Congratula- 
tions on your individual developments, girls! 


In Action!

Our string ensembles started a new year under the baton of Mr. 
Trevor Jones, who took Mrs. Smith's place for the year while she 
took a leave of absence to be with her husband in Kuala Lumpur. Mr. 
Jones, a veteran strings teacher for 30 years in Victoria public 
schools, enjoyed a busy and productive year with our string students. 
Reviewing old skills and learning new skills was first on the year's 
agenda. A grade seven and eight string ensemble played for one of 
the first chapel sei"vices, and later in December, performed for the 
Middle School Carol Service. Then the grade eight strings joined the 
grade fours for the grade fours' debut concert at the Junior School 
assembly on Novermber 28. The grade eights along with a number 
of grade sices and sevens performed very successfully at the tradi- 
tional noon hour concerts at Chateau Victoria (December 7). and 
then at the Ocean Pointe Resort (December 12). 

The second half of the year included two assembly concerts at the 
Junior School, one given by the grade six strings (February 26) and 
one by the grade seven strings fFebruai^ 6). to which parents and 
friends were invited. >ca«j«>i

a couple of days later with a clonic for the Honour Band 
administered by music educator/adjudicator Mr. Dave Dimnet. 
The Grade 7 Intermediate Band performed at the Junior 
School with students demonstrating some of the instruments to 
the younger children. The annual SMUS Middle School 
Spring Concert took place at the University of Victoria 
involving even' student in Middle School in string ensemble , 
band imd^Micert Choir. The Evening of Jazz followed with 
School Stage Band joining with the Junior and 
Senior Jazz Bands and Vocal Jazz from Senior School in 

The year concluded with our Closing Ceremonies being 
held this year at the MacPherson Playhouse. Wind players 
from the Honour Band joined w ith the members of the Cross- 
Grade strings to form the Middle School Orchestra for this 

Throughout the year, many students performed solos in our

Today is a day of celebration, a day marking a new era for the 2002 graduating class. Looking back, our 
days at SMUS were full of unforgettable memories... Though I was not a lifer — I remember vividly the 
day we stepped into the shiny halls of middle school as a bunch of bratty nobodies, looking real 
innocent and lost. We were instantly granted responsibilities with lockers and complicated sched- 
ules, as well as the title of being a middle schooler. We created artifacts for Egyptian night, had 
blast - literally! - in the huge school watertight on the fields, and experienced the joys and sorrowi 
of art class, among other things. With no desire of slowing down, we barged our way onto th( 
senior school scene. First arriving in grade nine, we were astonished by the amount of freedom 
in high school. Though the classes were larger and more demanding, we were presented with ^ 
great deal of academic and extracurricular choices, such as science electives, CAP program, etc| 
that eventually guided us to our interests and passions. Our years at senior school have been 
awesome. We strutted our stuff at the fashion show, had an awesome midnight skate, and put together 
a wonderful rendition of South Pacific. We will never forget the joys of lounging on sunny days in the quad, 
or simply hanging out in Challoner. Regardless of whether we were kicking back in the library or kicking 
soccer balls during spares, life at SMUS was in full motion. Ours is a diverse class with students from all over the world, from the gulf 
islands to Big brother down south, from southeast Asia to Slovakia, with a multitude of different cultures and interests. We learned from 
each other, sharing our strengths and weaknesses. We have built strong bonds of friendship which will last a lifetime. Our class has 
come a long way, producing national science and math competition winners. Besides academics, our class features national and 
provincial sports players, accomplished musicians, and wonderful outdoor leaders. Our class has well-versed essayists, talented 
actors and actresses, and even a geography champ! But we could never have come this far without the loving support of oui 
parents and the strong guiding influence of our teachers. They have taught us to pursue our dreams with passion. They have 
patiently endured our incessant parade of questions and numerous (stupid) mistakes. Their commitment to us, we will 
never forget. As Jacqueline Schiff said, "Travel the road that you have chosen and don't look back with regret. You have 
to take chances to make your dreams happen." Our future is full of opportunities; our options limitless, and potentials 
immeasurable. Now we are hopping off the senior school bandwagon to take long strides forward. We, 
the graduating class of 2002, will always have our friends, teachers, and SMUS to rely on. Through 
our blood, sweat, and tears, we have struck gold, the granddaddy of all prizes: graduation! To 
fellow grads, thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak, and best wishes to you all! 

It is by no means an easy task to sum up the wealth of unique talent, warmth and richness 
of personality that the 1 34 unforgettable people sitting before you possess. Forthe last twelve 
years, I have had the pleasure of being a part of the growth of this class, in both maturity and 
numbers. Our final high school year in particular has seen a lot of individual successes. With the 
introduction of our new school mascot. The Blue Jaguars, we have left behind a banner to hang in 
the new gym in the hope that it will help kindle enthusiasm and growth of school spirit in future spectators and 
athletes. Our days here at SMU, whether it's been 12 years or 12 months have been spent collecting stories of 
sorts. It seems that life so far has been a continuous chain of unexpected events. It's hard to imagine as a wide-eyed 
and carefree kindergartener the long, sometimes chaotic, sometimes serendipitous, but always exciting path we would 
endure to be standing here today. All the laughs, tears and stories we created along the way are the essence who we 
Yes, it is the end of a chapter in our lives. No more mad dash Slurpee runs, or rainy lunchtimes crowed in the tuck shop and 
hallways of Challoner. It's the end of the thrilling out-trips where so many stories and friendships were built. And, with a sigh of relief 
we have had our last 2400-meter run! Now, as we all disperse across the globe, gathering enough air miles I'm sure to circle the earth 
more than a couple of times, we will all begin a new chapter, and we are more than prepared to face whatever challenges we will 
encounter. We owe a huge part of our preparation to the people who filled our inquiring minds with so many questions, and then 

showed us the tools to answer them ourselves. I am of course talking about our teachers and coaches. To 
the English teachers who have helped us unearth meaning behind the seemingly foreign language of 
Shakespeare. To the music teachers who charmed music out of us at unnaturally early times in the ■ 

day. To drama and art teachers that give us opportunity to explore the wild and wacky depths of 

,N our complicated minds. To the science teachers who taught us about naughty bits above and p 

beyond the curriculum. To the humanities and math teachers who have such unbelievable 

enthusiasm for their subject. To the second language teachers who've shown us a whole new 

culture. And to coaches, that help us experience synergy, and the value of teamwork. We thank 

you for your dedication, respect, and hard work. Hold out your hand in front of you. At the tips 

of each finger is a complex swirl of lines. That pattern is different from the person sitting next to 

you, from every other person in the world. We will all use our fingerprints, our own unique package 

of talent, creativity and passion to make marks, take chances and break the moulds wherever we 

travel. Today we celebrate each graduate, as we continue to write our stories. To everyone sitting here 

today, you never know what new stories will be created if you don't seize the opportunities you are given. 

Carpe Diem! And Vivat!

The Graduates 


Hansi Abraham 


A word to remember me by: hmm, I don t even remember last week. The last two years have come and 
gone and new hope is on the honzon. First. I wish to thank my parents, by far the most influential and 
important people in my life. I know we havent always seen eye to eye. but its nice to know somebody will 
support you through whatever decisions you make. To all the people I should mention. Im sorry I cgn t 
To Patrick, however, I'm glad you always stuck close to me: I dont know what I could have done without 
you always there willing to help me out. Try not to forget all the crazy weekends, especially Van. and Mano 
plus the Nelly Furtado concert and John Payne. To all the laid-back house parents like Anderson and Field. 

you guys are doing good jobs realizing its not fun having someone breathe down your neck all the time. To all the other grads, 

the world is a scary place; I hope you haven't been sheltered too much. Peace Out.

Yeon-Joo Bae 


I remember the first time I stepped into SMUS. All I could think of was the huge green field full of tall 

strangers. Now, I look around the school campus and I notice the faces that have become far too familiar 

simply to pass by. I have numerous valuable memories and I know I will remember them forever. My 

awesome buddies, whom I will never forget, you have made my ordinary school life into a joyful and special 

time, DeresaMs! I always sympathized with you - the funniest creature, 24 hrs available! Thanks for

night fire alarm: the night-time activities: cooking: when he left SMUS in1 999: when he came back next year 
because he missed it so much: entering Barnacle; the Grade 1 year which he felt was the best time; the 
Korean Garden: the rough Grade 1 1 year: the dish washing: the music: snowboarding and basketball: the 
university applications; the prefect tie: the cool Barnacle House staff; the neighbours: women: the outlaws; 

Whistler; the night time DVD: the valuable talks. He will also keep these people in his mind forever: JH-back 

le days, some fun; the Lim brothers- you are cool: Sam- good talk, workout, cars, snowboards, girls, and stuff; JW- we 

keep in touch, all right? SY, I remember the Yang Chow Fried Rice; Jig- have fun in Toronto; JC- you have been the best 
roommate; YY -good luck in the future: US- you are tall; JW- hope you get faster, my friend; Ladies, work hard in the 
universities; RK- a.k,a. Magic Art Keum; HJ- the head size matters; RM- the super horse: Sister- have fun at SMUS; HS- hope 
you become a prefect later; good luck GRAD 2002! 


To sum up my years at St, Michaels University School in 250 words is ndiculously impossible because I 
simply don't have that kind of time on my hands, I'll write about 200. 1 was here for four years (came in Grade 
. 8). I had a lot of parties; I went to a lot of parties; I had my heart broken once: and I watched a lot of football. 
Needless to say. I didn't do much work. but. hey! I still graduated so you might say I managed to beat the 
system. Anyway, thanks Mom, for always being there whenever I pretended not to need you; your 
incredible insight into my life and the advice you have given me is almost spooky but definitely cool as even 
the best looking teenage dudes need some words of wisdom now and then. I'd like to thank Neil Diamond for "Brother Loves 
Traveling Salvation Show." That's all I got eh. so I'll just say a humble good night and if you ever need me I'll be chilling 
somewhere near Riverdale with Josie and her Pussycats. P.S. Brett Favre sucks and he single-handedly killed the Packers 
chance at an incredible dynasty.

I was dragged kicking and screaming into SMUS Middle School in grade six and after seven long years I 
have shared some great memories and made some incredible friends. Over the last few years many a night 
has started and ended in my basement, but a couple of highlights stand out. Grade Ten — messengerthree. 
clashes with the coastguard, dowhyfest. island champs with drinking tickets, and the Oak Bay native 
garden. Grade Eleven — listening to Too Short with Dewar, alumni and Howard Russell heartbreak, the 
arrival of Sollis, and Shawnigan Lake skinny dipping. Grade Twelve — Mt, Washington, a legendary trip, 
scenic routes with Sollis and the boys, Oburner and I on a tear, pool-wit Pyke, and Jawl always moving. To all my buddies, 
let's hope there are many more memories to come. To the girls who know I am all about sharing, caring, healing and feeling, 
thanks for your friendship. Thanks to the PE department for letting me be part of teams that lived and died together. Many 
adults have helped me throughout the years and although that's hard to believe, I am very thankful to the coaches, teachers 
and most of all my parents for their continuing support. My Dad once said, "you only live once" and I hope all the grads 
remember that wherever they go next, OQQ OftHO 

Thirteen years ago it all started. Some twenty little runts came together to make the first of the 2002 grad 

class. Now there are only a couple of us left, but many were added along the way. The Junior School was 

chill, not much to worry about except naptime. The middle school was different; but the last four years are 

the ones that really counted. Grade 9; everything here is huge. Grade 1 0; BH and I putting JP in the fridge. 

Jazz band, Mexico, ML drank the water, JH handing out darts. Grade 1 1 : OB High, lunches at Bagga. JP. 

BH, RE, start the chill, alien, hey hunter! Whistler. Vinced. MILO. M&J. Mischievous Robot. Smokey and 

the Bandit. Priz Wok. Grade 1 2: It has been a long road, but we're almost there. To my friends, you know who you are. thanks 

lor the great time! Peace. vn

I have spent six years at SMUS. I arrived in grade 7, not knowing what to expect, I then proceeded to 
conquer all. Petie. Gormie, Brent. Zulu is the language of The Hoodlums, but seriously it was Oak Bay 
O'Lyall does rule. Colson, maverick and iceman. Tony. I don't know what to say. Bogie, trade chemistry 
for McDonalds. Kipper, all I can say is resist. Ge-off. you're hilarious. Couvie. you're a bear. Jawly. you 
make me feel so short. Burnso. there is never a dull moment. Cob. squirrels are not safe. Davie. ACDC, 

incredible event. Dew. you're the man. Vera, you're a great friend. Seaner. Jerry Springer and xanavison, 

ha, summer of grade 9. Sally, you're so money and you don't even know it. Oy boss, this one time in Armstrong, we saw 
Stephanie? Michael Pykel Peek, you're my brother, but no Dragon Ball Z. Grannys, pappa. mom, dad. you are all the best, 
thanks, roox, you're an inspiration. "If you didn't care what happened to me, and I didn't care for you. we would zig-zag our 
way through the boredom and pain occasionally glancing up through the rain wondering which of the buggers to blame and 
watching for pigs on the wing. " Roger Waters. No regrets! 


Four years: whether they've been long or not I'll leave to the imagination. Thanks first to everyone who 

welcomed me to the school back in grade nine. Everything was built on that year, so I'm glad it turned out 

so well. I'm almost sorry to see this school go. but we're on to bigger and better. I played my first rugby here. 

and met great people. JC, anatawa henna hito desu. Stu, be smart (enough said). DK. you cheap Tekkeh 

player. Johnny, you live right up the road, and I hardly ever see you. Nicola. I won't call you Neec. Nick. 

you crazy kid, we need to get together more. Everyone else, just know that this is a rush job. so sorry if I 

don't get you. Of course. I couldn't write this without AMP. Thank you for everything. You've been great to me, I merely hope 

that I can make everything up to you, staying with you forever. I love you. And now, I bid adieu. Thanks, that was fun.

Two thousand seven hundred days. Nine years of my life have been spent at SMUS and I think it s fan 
enough to say I'm ready to move on. These unforgettable years have been possible only thanks to my 
parents: Ma y Pa. gracias por todo lo que han hecho por mi. los amare para siempre' To all of my friends, 
I thank you all infinitely for the countless and unforgettable memories that you have given me. Knsten 
thank you for being there from day one. You have been and will live to be the greatest friend I will ever have

Eighteen years ago the insanity began as I came into the world (kicking and screaming. Im sure). Mom 
and Dad. dakujem za vsetko: I could never have come so far without your love and support (to my little Pro: 
all I need to say is keep growing): to my teachers and coaches. I thank you for giving me direction. I think 
I might even have learned something along the way: and my friends - how could I have survived without 
you? Youre all crazy and 1 will treasure all the memories: Razzmatazz and all that jazz (remember 

Nickelback?). banana boats & nutella. freezing during the OL trips, chem and bio class in general, cruising 

in the K-car (or the shagon" wagon?!). McDs and "copious" amounts of welfare ice-cream, bum buddies, yellow mustangs. 
Australia, bbq and movie nights, looking for petty change with a metal detector, yearbook room all day/everyday, volleyball. 
basketball, volleyball. ..back to back Provincials = late night practices (and subsequent procrastination), too many bad llamas 
and so many good times. You guys really made it all worth it! So really, who is the more foolish - the fool . or the lool who 
follows him? Keep in touch and best of luck. 'Till the fork in the road meets again.,. My motto - sans limites.

David Burnett 


Although still sporting the maturity of a two year old. I've made it to grade 1 2. After thirteen years at SMUS 

I think I can safely say that thirteen years is quite a long time to spend in one place, especially when you're 

there seven hours a day. There are a few choices I wish I'd made, and some I wish I hadn't, but I regret 

nothing {except, of course, for the wrong choices I was just alluding to). As we approach grad I'm reminded 

o( our first day in kindergarten. I don't remember much about that day, but there is one thing I am sure of; 

we were a lot smaller. Over the years our class has grown in number, in size, and in spirit, and we are now 

the most unruly group of people I've ever had the privilege of being a part of. To friends I've had for years, fnends I've had 

for months, and friends I just never got around to making; I wish you all the best life has to offer. To teachers who have awed 

and inspired me. as well as those who have left something to the imagination; thank you for your time and patience over the 

years. I legve you now with this insanely useless bit of advice; laughter really is the best medicine.

My four years at SMUS have been full of unforgettable and unique experiences. I wish to thank everyone who has 
been part of the experiences, starting with my three roommates; Jin Woo. Speedo and Chan. Jin Woo, thanks 
for all the math help: John — I've now seen most of Tom's movies or at least their trailers; you never dropped out 
either, but the virus gets us all somehow; Trevor, you've been a great roommate and there won't be another like 
you despite what the phone book thinks; don't forget about Babe or Horse and remember no one wants to see 
It, especially not at dinner. To the rest; Adam — hope you never have to ride the bus again. Dual Bios!! Elliott, 
you are a mess, don't ever forget that. Fish-on. Orsy — Canucks 6 Leafs 1 . eh. Franklin?. Hansi — have fun. Brad. Aki — keep playing 
soccer because one day Canada will beat Japan. Mike Hu — happy 1 9th again. I will always remember it. Daisuke — happy birthday. 
I wish also to thank; Golian. Kuhn. Bogutz. Whitey. Stu, Chris Kim. Aashish. Liz Mitchell, Jose, Patricio, Melon head Lui. Yun Young, 
the tennis team and all the Bolton Buds (Penguins) for being the best house. Last and most, many thanks to Mom, Dad, Ed, and Chris; 
and. to the Camerons for making my stay here so much more enjoyable. BHSflHBBE^^H;

I came to SMU way back in Grade 4. With a bunch of newbies. I remember meeting a group of great guys. 

including that maniac E.H. First day of school was great, where Dave. Stu and Jav took me into their little 

group. Junior school was awesome, middle school was interesting and senior school was amazing! I have 

to say. O.L was great and camping in the snow was awesome. For those 17 years I've spent up at the 

Alders, the last few have been sweet. And Stu. I schooled you at ping-pong, alright! Above anyone. I have 

to thank T.C for teaching me everything he knows about Cncket for 8 fantastic years. Cricket has been a 

great expenence. meeting tons of interesting people. I met Kaz, Rudi. Seb. Aslam, Henry and countless others. Winning that 

shield. I can only hope to live up to expectations. So many great players have won it before. I'm running out of room and 

time at SMU so I'll cut it short. Stu (Mr. Mac), you've changed a lot; I'm still taller and listen; Matt Good Band is way better 

than Nickelback. you know it. Dave, you're still crazy and I won't forget I wouldn't be hanging around you guys if it weren't 

for you. Thanks for so many great years! 

Martin Chan 


Over the past two years. I've learned so much from SMUS. but most important I've learned after two 
years that I'm leaving this summer! Take care, all of you who are still staying — like Au-Yeung Chu. 
Eat more, you're not fat ah! Jo li yun. have you found a smart roommate yet? Wait a minute, get a 
girlfriend! Wilson, hope you get what you want! People who are leaving; Lavin (get more handsome 
friends!); Ann (still won't believe you'll go to Langara); Angel (main 41 ^' ) and Kelvin (diu! Take care 
la!). Keep in contact! To Clarence, good luck in Cornell ah! I have faith in you! 

Trevor Chan 


I arrived at SMUS in grade 10 and at first. I was nervous. My parents unloaded my bags and drove off as 

soon as they could, leaving me alone with my 1 0th grade roommate, Hugh Macintosh. I quickly introduced 

myself and he did the same, but in the weirdest fashion. As I recall, he said. "Hey, F. Hugh," and shook 

my hand. Naturally. I took offence and this relationship didn't last; I got a new roommate in grade 1 1 . Jamie. 

He was slightly better. Anyway. Ouinn. thanks for not coming back to SMUS; instead, you have the 

priceless opportunity of wasting your life on some deserted island, trying to learn to speak French. Adam. 

thanks for being a nice little bear and have fun studying at Cambndge. Don't spend all your time at the pubs. guy. Well, three 

years have passed and with them have gone many of the best times I have ever experienced. I have met many interesting 

people and through them. I have learned many important lessons that I will carry for the rest of my life. Oh. I almost forgot. 

Happy Birthday, Daisuke!

It's been a while since I've looked back on my years at SMUS: in this moment of reflection I realize now 
many people have been significant to me: teachers who have influenced my academic and athletic careers, 
peers from whom I have learned much, and buddies whom I consider more valuable than confidant(e)s. 
David Burnett VIVE LE FOOTBALL! Be wary. Stuart, there are lots of bad girls out there, so make sure 
you have the right bait when you fish. Kasim. it's really been a pleasure being your fellow-tenor- saxophone 
player for the past four years: keep up that interest we share. Bogutz kun. I'm really going to miss the many 
hours we spent on Playstation 2TM. especially Final Fantasy X. -Thanks be to Yevon." Anne-Mane, my 
years at SMUS would've been completely different without you: be sure always to keep your optimistic attitude and be happy- 
Dear Mahsol. thanks for all those e-mail messages that helped and encouraged me: 1 wish you ^^f 7f,^'"9 J^ll. N'^^f , ^^J;,

, Mutt, and I'm proud of it. I came 
)ntario with the. 
U-1 3 team and what do I get? Benched so that someone from our team can score on us. But I got even 
this year getting injured 5 minutes in. Oops. If I learnt anything it's that expectations will be crushed, so 
sometimes you just have to run with it. When I got to Senior School the story finally got interesting. There 
I I was again at the bottom of the pack just waiting for my turn and now I'm here. Graduating. All that build 
up for this? I'm still the same little grade 9 ,ust waiting for my turn, just a little taller. Oh well. I'm sure I'll remember a 'ew things, 
maybe To the Grad class, I don't want to mention any names or expenences to remember me by. because if you need a small 
paragraph to summarize the awe that is Pete, then clearly I haven't been loud enough. You've all made the tuTie something 
to remember, good or bad. Karma will prevail. Coach Cordle. thanks for making it If^^^'f/^;:''^^!^^^^^^^

- Two years of 2:00 a.m. mornings, crazy nights (watch out for those limos girls), laughing attacks, and 
gourmet cuisine (Brickyard and Ebizo). Nothing has proven more rewarding and worthwhile. Yoyster and 
Gracie-Poo — to beach babes, pina coladas. and getting caught in the rain — I love you gals! All my girlies, 
you are my sunshines, keep smiling! "The most wasted day of all is that during which we have not laughed."

I came to SMU in Gr. 8 unsure, fresh from 8 years at an all-boys school. Now a 1 100 days of school. 48 
exams. 1 2 university applications, too many early mornings, lots of friends, several litres of Coca-Cola, and 
. 72 km worth of 2400 runs later. I leave the school knowing that these past five years will forever be among 
tfie best of my life. My teachers: thank you for your inspiration and encouragement. My friends: Lyall-keep 
on Kermit dancing. Brad-you know I will always be better at everything (tennis and Smash Bros, included). 
Kipp/Dave/OByrne-RyReDaCh legacy will live on. Liz-Baby got back!. Florensh-need I say more? Buena 
suerte mi amiga!. Karlie-the Peach Rap. Ho-I didn't even have to undo the zipper!. Andrea- 1 love. ..cake. 
GracePH-rowing/fat whiney/big goofy. I cant even begin to write about all the good times I've had: Lyall's parties, stakeout 
at Munroe's. tennis provincials. Mario partying, addiction to pop. Mt. Washington (what photo?), golfing, dungeonball. rainy 
rowing and rugby days. OL. prefect-meeting cuisine (long live the mini-sandwich), road trips. Spanish, and being sarcastic. 
My "family (Mom. Dad. Yennis/Tlun Tlun/Fet Bet. Papa, and Grandma): A simple thanks doesn't do justice to your 
unconditional love and support. To GRAD 2002: Good luck, stay in touch, and Vivat! Couvie/Bear/Couvs/Dutch/Big Couvster 

Meara Crawford 


As I've meandered about SMUS for the last twelve years of my life. I've come to conclude that the best way 
to fill up my jar of life is first to put in two precious gemstones: one. my family: Mum and Dad, so much to 
thank you for. Curran and Evan, thanks for paving the way. I love you forever: and two. my friends: you know 
who you are. Your craziness and kindness are forever embedded in my memory. You've proved that with 
great friends, even hippos can dance. I thank each of you for teaching me about being respectful, brave, 
and original. I couldn't have made it without you. Next into the jar, some smaller pebbles: passion, the music 
notes, rowing, education, ambitions to travel and work for National Geographic. Sprinkled in the gaps, sand warmed by the 
sun that soothes the toes, the moments, the experiences that my life would be incomplete without: Mercla. banana boats, 
llamas. Banff road tnp. Gladiator look-a-likes. chemistry class in general, a fair bit of ice and a whole lot more! If I've left a 
few grains of sand in some other people's jars of life. I'm satisfied. And. finally, no reflection is complete without a metaphor 
involving a road. So. just remember that on the road of life there are no passengers, only drivers. Drivers Wanted.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness." 
It was the age of da man. I came to Saint Michaels University School in grade 8 skeptical and nervous, Until 
Now. I am leaving Saint Michaels University School skeptical and nervous (realistically I'm leaving as a 
vibrant young man). Memorable moments at SMUS: Grade 8. can't remember; Grade 9. can't remember: 
Grade 10. Messenger III: OByrnes boating adventure: "The sun is shining over the rainbow.": influences 
and teachings of Sean Bell: rugby with the boys: Ramone: Dowhyfest: walking up and down Beach Drive. 
Grade 1 1 . rugby: Dowhyfest: Sean's basement: Shawnigan (breaking my face / Lyall's diving ability): car rally: going over 
■ to Lyall's house every day with Brent and Liz: Ryan Sollis. Grade 1 2. video games with Pyke: Mt. Washington with Sean and 
O'Byrne. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me on my journey through school. You have influenced me in ways 
you can't imagine. My parents taught and guided me through all my hardships and achievements: my friends have always 
been there through thick and thin: finally, the teachers who have expanded my curiosity and taught me a bit on the way. Grad 
2002. its been a pleasure. 



No how are YOU doing? Strangely enough, high school for me resembled a Black Sabbath song (yes. with 
Ozzy and no not the upbeat happy kind: Sabbath Bloody Sabbath fits the description pretty well). To the 
people who talked me into mentioning them; whafs up Mallory? You're the greatest. Ali and Liz; you re all 
cool and thanks for being so nice to me: it's appreciated. To Jo and Fran, if you ever see a skinny Insh kid 
downtown come over and say hi. To Fran, especially, thanks for not letting me ruin my life: there isn t room 

here for me to give you enough credit. Nick Black, youve always been a great guy to me. so thanks. If 

anyone wants to find me I'll be at 4510 Satinleaf Lane. Sarasota, Fl. fishing at the lake in Uncle Johns backyard. I m going 
home. baby. Woooo! , . ■

I have attended SMUS for the past six years and have had good times, not because of the stimulating 
learning environment, but because of good fnends. Without you guys the last few years would have 
seemed more like a phson sentence than high school. There are too many people to mention, so all I have 
to say is you know who you are, and I wish you good luck. -If you can 1 convince 'em, confuse em. -

special teachers who inspired me and brightened many of my days: (Wis. MacDonald, for your enthusiasm:

Well we did it: the graduating class of 2002. Sounds nice, doesn't it? Coming to SMUS as a sophomore 
(grade 1 0) to be one of the few. true, proud Americans to come through SMUS with a background of football. 
I did not find it easy. I managed, however, with the help of my friends. First, I wish to thank to my family 
for supporting me (and paying) through my years at SMUS. Colson - we're as American as they come. 
BB - I love you: your parents are cool. too. Aki -Sensi Dkke-chinko. (osoi yoruno ai). Kenny - you'll always 
be my li'l brother. Nick gets his rnoney for nothing and his chicks for free. Dewar is THE MAN. Finally. I would 
like to thank Cookie, for his guidance. Tanbe Club! Congratulation to all the grads of 2002! Good luck wherever you may go.

Graduation, the end of high school — the end of our childhood, the end of our beginning. I entered SMUS from 

a small public school in Campbell River, not knowing what to expect. For my first and last year of SMUS its been 

quite an expenence. Ive braved the most challenging and incredible year of my life: coming here was the best 

decision I veever made. Thisyearhas zoomed by with the hoursof homework, studying, school activities.councils. 

university applications and late-night chats to "Xiao Zhu. ' Timmis girls, what can 1 say. I love you and will miss 

you tons. Bolton boys. well, let's just say it's been interesting living with you guys. Adios mis pequenos mejicanos. 

I want to thank all my teachers for helping me through the tough times this year: I appreciate all the patience. Gratitude goes out to 

Jonesy for the ab workouts in chem. class. Thanks to Mr. Gardiner for pushing me to learn to my fullest ability: 1 will never forget you 

or your facetious classes To all my fellow prefects, boarders, f nends. and grads. good luck in your future endeavours. Grace. Chels. 

Yon. and Aleksa: MU AH! I love and miss all of you guys at home. Clarence, you are definately my savior. I don't know how I'd survive 

SMUS without you. I'll miss our late night chats and study sessions. Thanks for always being there with your good advice. 

Mark Gorman 1999-2002 

Choose SMUS. Choose classes. Choose sports. Choose fnends. Choose freaking big hair. Choose 
quadblobs. bottle hockey, and slurpy runs. Choose sitting in "character-building." sleep-inducing classes, 
stuffing your head with information. Choose swankiness. "sensitivity." procrastinating, roaming, and 
sticking it to the man. Choose your future. Choose life: but why would I want to do something like that? 
I started at SMUS in grade 1 0. Those were some crazy times. After that, grade 1 1 . also crazy times. Grade 
12. you guessed it. crazy times. It's funny how that happens. Good night, and God speed. PS: Smoke me 
a kipper: 111 be back for breakfast.

My two years at SMU have been filled with good times and bad times. I have made good friends here (I 

love you all) who have given me memories III look back on and laugh, cry or deny ever happened. Like 

the time.VIP fast, fun and free girls! Mt. Washington trips. I was playing cards. I swear. Out of control 

summer. Movie days and dinner dates. Mystery bachelor #3. My girls! Trouble when we're together. Look 

what I can do. I think you need more minions. I swear you could pull it off. You are the ultimate TT. oh you 

and your boys. Hey. you still owe me S5. Remember, it s a totally platonic. friendly date. Bumpy, dontforget 

me when you re famous. Picture time. This one s for you. . un peu! Narf. I'll never forget the window, oh sweet window. TR. 

best friend forever Australian reunion 2003. we're moving in. Life filled with surfers and sun. I cant wait. What a Mess! Good 

times at the mountain, thong pants, and of course "1 got your back." Basically, all I can say is good times, good times and 

of course the not-so-good times but nonetheless memories I'll never forget. Finally, thanks to my family for loving and 

believing in me. I wouldn't be here without you. Good luck to GRAD 2002! Spread your wings and live your dream because 

It s our time to fly.

I have been at SMUS for a little over a year now. and even though a year is not a lot of time, my life has 
changed completely So many great things have happened to me during my short stay. I wish to thank my 
family for encouraging me to come here, the best decision I have made, so far. To all my friends who have 
made my time here amazing-thank you. Especially to Chantal and Chelsea - I will never forget you two. 
the best friends I could ask for. (One word: -Bnckyard.-) Grace-we have had some fun times together 

(backing out of a stall at Thriftys. -Bacon -. the crack). Rebekka-I am glad we had a chance to be roomies 

- and best wishes to you next year! To all the Harvey boys - good times, good times. Geoff-what am I going to do without 
you as my mac n' cheese lunch date? Aleksa- 1 wonder how people would react if I told them about the time. . .oops' Andrea- 
Starbucks is still awaiting a visit from us; those fantasy caramel-fudge bars are calling our names. To those of you I have 
not mentioned. I will miss you. Finally, good luck to all the grads. We are done' -Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss. you II

Ive spent over half my life here and its hard to believe it was nine years ago when I entered my tirst bMUb 
class Japanese Apparently 1 unknowingly introduced myself as a little boy. (My Japanese did improve!) 
Perhaps the most important thing I learned dunng my time at the junior school was that -cows eat grass 
Mercla is and always will be a legend. The middle school is a blur of memories: hiking with the boys, flamenco 
dancing Iretiru toil and trouble. I cant possibly sum up all the great times. The senior school has been . well , 

and bio forever For the record, lavender ice cream IS good! Peppo. Mo. Dood. and Piki eased the pain. SALTS was sweet 
I dont think I was ever really awake during early morning stnngs. Nickelback was incredible. Bad llamas, drag queens and blow- 
up dolls the locker told all. Volleyball rocked! We made provincials ladies! I used to think Id be here forever but it looks like 
forever has come and gone. Lots of love to my family and all the fnends Ive made along the way. You know who you are and 
your friendship has been truly invaluable to me. You wont be forgotten. Best of luck to the Grad Class of 2002.

Memories begin where moments meet. There are certain people to whom a simple thank-you is not enougii

From the moment I came to SMUS in grade seven I've had some great times, bad times and met some 
good people I have also met some terrible excuses for human beings (you know who you all are) whom 
1 poorly chose to befriend and who subsequently ruined my life. All I have to say is that St. Michaels has 
definitely not failed in shaping me into the wonderful young man that I am today. 1 greatly cherish every 
minute I spent at this school but Id have to say that Im glad its all over so I can kick off my life-long career 
as a professional janitor. Good times that 1 will always remember; Dankshar. Washington. Shawnigan. I

Well kids some would say the trips been long, and others that it is just the beginning. Me, well I m finding, 
it really hard to sum up all my feelings from the past five years in 250 words. Its hard to believe that 
something I've been planning since grade 9 has now become so hard to do. Ive had so many great 
memories and made so many amazing fnends that its impossible to list them all: I guess that s what the 
supplement is for. I'd like to thank my mom for her undying support and all those teachers who believed 
in me when no one else would. Its been one heck of a ride, and I cant say that Im glad it s done, I m 

^^ ^., ^„,„^ to miss it. Special thanks to the dancer, the rear-ender, the dude, the g-man. the heavy eater, munroe. K-

who Inever got the opportunity to get to know, all the best. Hope to see you all in ten. Up for a rematch. Tyrrell'' It s not

Three years have passed faster than I thought it could. When I first came here. I only could speak a little English and 

It was very hard for me to adapt to life at SMUS. I had moments when I thought to give up trying and go back to Japan. 

However, by the grace of precious people. I overcame many difficulties at SMUS. First of all. I am really thankful to 

my mom and dad! Thank you for listening to my complaints on the phone! And I am also thanks to Yuml. Yumi is 

a one of my best friends. She always helped me when I was depressed, and I always helped her when she was 

depressed. I am sure I couldn't have survived without her help. Chiaki, you are my math teacher. Thanks for teaching 

me math and staying with me in the foyer when I was on duty! Tsubasa, you are my special friend! Let's meet in Japan sometime. Anna, 

I thought Fiona was the best roommate for me, but you are as good as Fiona! I am glad to be roommates with you this last year. I am 

really worried that you might be late for school next year if I don't wake you up! Last of ail. Kyungmin, you are the one that I want to thank 

the most' I spent most of the time with you in the last three years. I have thousands of precious memories with you that I can't explain 

in words, t quarreled with you almost everyday, but we always made up! I hope I can stay with you forever. . .1 love you! 

Winnie Ho 


Finally, its the end of an everlasting journey. I have to say three years at SMUS was too long. It was no 
doubt a worth while experience and the happy times will forever remain in me but I am very glad that it's 
all over now. Farewell to the place where I learned a lot about the real world. Farewell to the ones who will 
never be able to understand. I'll never forget my days here: it is too deep of a scar. Thanks to all those who 
helped me along. Mandy, don't let anything get in the way, hang on tight and never give up. Chantal, you're 

the only one who truly understood me. Thanks for listening. Aleksa, Beaver can never beat Monkey up. 

Angle. See you in HK. Becks, thanks for the entertainment. Mom and Dad, thank you for everything, and you were right, this 

was only an experience.

After 8 longs years I cant believe its finally over. Coming in grade 4. junior school was lots of fun with jail 

lag and other adventures. I still remember in grade four I thought that by the time I graduated I would know 

what I wanted to do with my life. With four months left I still don't have a clue. I've learned a lot over the 

■years, but it seems the more I learn, the less I know. Maybe one day I will learn to keep notesand be 

organized. I've had lots of great memories, which I will take with me and remember for the rest of my life. 

Along the way Ive had some great teachers to guide me Including old man head McLeod and friends, mind 

melt. Mr Leggatt for a great chem. class and teaching Andy and I how to fish To my parents and all those who made my 

times her a little brighter I thank you. Remember: the great things in this world are not so much where you are but in what |^'^ 

direction you are moving. To all the grads of 2002 I wish you good luck. ^^^B

We should do it again! Fern; Its nice to know such a unique' girl like you. E-mail me sometimes and send me your articles. 

Kyun-min: Even though we had only one song finished, but its fun to play music with you. Come to Japan, and lets start over 

again. Yin and Frenzie forever!

I entered SMUS as a boarder in 1 998; now it is hard to believe that I am graduating soon. In these four years. 

besides going to school. I have learned how to solve many different situations. In my boarding life, there 

have been lots of happy and sad memories in the past four years, and also I made lots of friends at SMUS. I 

would like to thank my parents, who always have been there for me when I most needed it. To my two 

brothers in SMUS. Martin and Wilson. Good luck to you all. God (and girls) be with you! To my sisters. Ann 

and Lavin. really hope you can get a rich husband. Angel, get a boyfriend - and sometimes you work too 

hard Clarence, nothing to say about her. Genius, we are in different level. Jeff . treat Clarence good. Sam. my sexy roommate 

how come girls always go to your side?

Ifs been a wild ride since I arrived a terrified thirteen-year-old at SMUS. All I can say is thank you to those 
people who made the past 5 years worthwhile. You know who you are. Ive had good times, met people 
who have changed how 1 think, and a few who ril never forget. I think Ive learned a lot. not |ust academic 
learning, but how to deal with life and my peers. Nickelback and New Years 2002. Saltspnng 2001 . Duen 
2000 and who knows how many movie nights and yearbook room mornings are probably my best memones 

(though there's probably some important stuff Ive forgotten). To the class of 2002. the only piece of advice 

I have is to do what you want with the rest of your life: otherwise you'll never be happy. Always challenge authority, stay true 
to what you believe in, and you will rise to the top. To Anna, the girl who stole my heart one January night, no matter what 
happens next year III always look back on our time together as some of the best days of my life. 'Life is a far too importanl 
thing to ever talk about seriously." -Oscar Wilde

Ghpped by fear and apprehension I pushed my way through the heavy double doors to embark on my first 
day of kindergarten. Thirteen years later I find myself at another set of doors, these however, dont seem 
quite as daunting. .. I accredit this to both my behemoth size and also the wisdom that awaited me on the 
other side of that fateful entrance. My days at Saint Mikes have had their ups with their fair share of downs. 
The memories made, I know, will relive themselves in my heart many times as I walk the road that is the 
rest of my life. To all the people that made these memories I apologize for not knowing the words to tell you 
what you.mean to me. And to all my fellow grads- don't be afraid of excellence, and never deny the dance

In my five years at SMUS I have had many great experiences and met many inspiring people. The people 
I have met both teachers, coaches and fnends have impacted me in more ways than one can imagine. Mr 
Hyde-lay .and Mr. K, your teachings in sport have been invaluable to me on and off the field and I will carry 
them with me a long way. My memories and experiences at SMU include; out trips, rugby tours ^nd 
provincials boot and alumni games versus Oak Bay and of course one very entertaining rock concert put 
on by ACDC. To my close friends, and the guys, four of which I have schooled with since kindergarten 
H , ,ao uc^, , ,un cid I wish you all the best in the future. To all the teammates I have played with overthe years, those memones 
are irreplaceable! To the family. Mom, Dad, Liz and Pete, the thanks I can give you is never enough for what you have been 
and how much you mean to me. Lastly I wish to my class the best in the future. For all of those I didnt mention you know 
who you are and how much you mean to me! Always remember, '1 0% of life is what happens to you, 90% is how you react 
to it". , ■ '. 


"SMUS has been such an experience for me. In every moment of eveiy memon/ ot my time at siviua mere is a wan i m i. 

a beauty a love. Every action and every inaction of my surroundings and of myself has shaped me into what I am and 

what I will be. I can only hope that after I graduate the life lessons I have leamed in the SMUS community will stay in 

me forever and I will continue to exist in the world as a worthy person, always acting with passion and com ' " " 

striving for excellence, to be excellent, and to radiate excellent-ness." -Anonymous SMUS lifesiyie panicipam 

That said I would just like to thank everybody who has helped me. whether by being a friend, or perhaps being a 

parent or even by just being - without all of you I wouldn't be here putting this yearbook together right now. Of course were I not doing 

this I wouldn't be losing circulation to my lower extremities due to prolonged sitting. But ultimately I think the loss of feeling is worth it. 

I neverthought I'd say this, but in the end, it really has been worth it (this time Im not being sarcastic!). Although had there been no llamas. 

excessive amounts of ice-cream or my extensive duties as a taxi dnver (of the K-car variety), it may not have been. No, that s a lie. It 

definitely would not have been worth it without those things. "Welcome to PJ's taxi - where would you like to go today? - The Little Mei maid

the most amazing people. To Kathryn. you've helped a lot between Clarence and me and I really 

appreciated that. To Wilson. Derek. Clayton, and Jerry. CS forever! Stephen, don't let me see u in my room

Time just keeps flowing and now we are graduating from high school. When I came here last year. I was naive 
and helpless. I went through lots of troubles. Then I realized that I have to be responsible and stand up for 
myself. Now as I look back. I find high school experience worthy. I would like to thank my friends for friendship 
and encouragement. Moreover, it was a life lesson. I will remember: 84 Pride!! Juoh, Kenji, Lewis, Jin, 
Brandon, Jack Jung, and last and least Jun Guk Do-just kidding-, we are the best! Grad 2002 hyung dul, 

Juwan, Yong Seok, Yun Young, Sam. Jin Woo. and Kyung Min. Good Luck with universities! 85. 86 hoo-

It was so fun being with you guys. Good times ahead! Keep in touch and see you all in peace.

When I first came to SMUS in grade eight I was nervous. I had come from Vernon, a small town where I 
spent most of my years growing up. so I wasn't used to SMUS. But it wasn't long until I settled down. And 
as the year progressed. I met some good people who made me smile. Bogutz - you're a good friend. I still 
owe you for that trip to the F. Terminal. Johan - what can I say? you were always there for me. Thanks 
a lot, you're a true friend. Rach - you're the modest person I know, thanks for putting up with me. Chien 

- you're right. I am competitive, but is that so wrong?! Pork E.- 1 swear this'!! be the last time, it's just that 
there's a word limit. Anna. Alex. Aspartame, and the YB people - I'm so sorry about yearbook. I never wanted things to end 
the way it did. Herman. Stu. Campbell. Nicola. Meara. Kasim. Javier, you guys are the best, it was fun knowing you all. Jennie 

- will we every stop laughing at one another? Lavinia & Ann - thanks for trying to help me with YB. I owe you two a lot. To 
all fny friends, thanks for helping me through the toughest of times. I hope we'll all meet again. 

Erica Kim 

Thanks to my family and friends. Good luck Grad 2002! 




I was blessed to learn how friendship and love can make one's life so bright and beautiful at SMUS. I came 
here 1997 from grade 8 to now. I met a lot of people whom I'll never forget in my life. Especially. Yuko H. 
it was really fun and that always stays with you. I had a rock band with Michael, hiro and menn. Frenzies. 
It was one of the best memories in my life when we played music and composed songs. Frenzies forever 
man! All koreans. thanks for being nice to me. And Jack and Steven, who is my roomate. it was really fun 
to stay with you in Harvey house. Jack, don't forget the question "Are you happy? " Finally I'm out of here. 
Thanks to all the teachers who cared about me. Everybody - Bye.

I started out at the very bottom (kindergarten) in Jr. Sch. That was such a long time ago. but I still have 

these dreadful memories of the "bluebook" and winters in the little dress shorts. My journeys then led me 

to the Mid. Sch, where my rugby career started with DMB, We weren't that good then, but I'd like to think 

we're better now. The gr,8 dinner dance on the HMS Beaver signaled my end at the Mid, Sch, and I was 

deported to where I am now, Sr, Sch, has given me many fond memories thus far: movie hangout nights, 

BBQ/Hot tub at Tucker's, Japan TripOl , Castaway Wanderers BC Champs, rugby 7s and BCs in Van, a 

number of fine social gatherings, some wonderful teachers, and great rugby coaching, Jav-pro body builder(when are you 

going to lift with us?) PJ-our double is money. Tuck: I'll be driving you around soon and take it easy you juice monkey, B- 

ya goof remember the bet if we win the BCs AL-kudos for taking up my "weakness is not tolerated" training I'll join you 

sometime, Bkand IHL-I will convert in the Kozone one day! To all the rugby boys-"Do your job" Thanks to mum and dad for 

sending me here and standing behind me and to everyone else who has put up with my misohief and bad humour. The bus

Three years of my life in SMUS is about to come to an end. It was hard at first to get used to the life here, Ipu 
somehow I managed to ease through. I would first like to thank my family. Thank you all for your suppor 
emotionally AND financially! You guys are the best and I love you! Next, thanks to all my cool Jap fnends in H.K 
and Japan. Kousaku, Hiroshi, Ebicchi, Shibacchi, Teppi, Kemji, Chichiban, Marimin, Yuki. Yukiccho, Takafusa 
Daichan: thanks for all the fun we had! You guys are truly the coolest and best friends I've ever had in my life 
I really appreciate your support during my hard times. Also, thanks to my MSN buddies, although I didn't hav£ 
much time to talk to them. Last but not the least, the SMUS people, Mrs, Cook, Cookie, and HP's: Thank you for your support foi 
my three years in boarding! Mr. Cook: I regret that I didn't have guts to call you Cookie Ivan: Don't bring girls into boarding anc 
clean your room up. Austin: Sleep more. Peter: Don't spend too much time with girls and study hard. Yun-Young: Don't cry in May 
You know what I mean. Stephen: You are the funniest guy I've ever met. Jennie: I will not be there anymore to help you with youi 
calc and math. Alice and Clarence: I had fun teasing you two in chem. And finally to the teachers and Grad 2002. let's enjoy oui 
lives! P.S. Happy Birthday Daisuke! rsnnn nnnn 

Over my two years at SMUS I have had some great expenences and hard reality checks. A certain rhyme 

comes to mind when trying to express these ideas. "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had 

many great academic, physical and personal falls, but with the help of his parents, teachers and friends 

he managed to put his brutally beaten body back together again " Life lays many great opportunities down 

for you. but it all comes down to whether you have the courage to take a chance on yourself and other 

people, I had a great time meeting new people but remember friends don't come easy when you're the new 

face on campus, but you can't be afraid to throw yourself to the lions. But in all seriousness, thanks for being there for me 

in the line of fire— you're all good friends, "White Spot " yah buddy! Keep circulating because you know it's the right thing to 

do. I move on leaving my footprint upon they rugby pitch where I will live in infamy as a member of the elite I was ever so 

proud to join. Lastly, I would like to thank my parents, the true inspiration and support you offered me was what kept me going 

and made me realize how lucky I am to have parents like you. 

Angel Lai 


Although I have been at SMUS for five years. I cannot honestly say that I will be sorry to leave. More a 
I will be jumping up and down and celebrating. But a small part of me will certainly miss this school (a little). 
I wish to thank to all my teachers for helping me with stuff that looked like gibberish to me at times: thanks 
also to all my house parents for cooking the yummiest food on Wednesdays, and thank you to all my friends 
for supporting me and cheering me up when I'm down in the pit. Ann and Lavin. you gals have been married 

for four years now. and I wonder what you are going to do without each other. Im going to miss you guys 

a lot, love you, and keep in touch! Clari, thank you for everything, -ah xim, " Alice, I wish you the best of luck next year (wherever 
you may be going). Ho, I'm really going miss you. our nightly chat about food. Ho #2. one more year to go, so work hard and 
good luck! Martin, Congratulations! You have graduated from the "La Ying'' school, Kelvin and Wilson, don't swear too much 
and don't play too much. Annie and Masey, have "fun" next year in boarding, I leave you with my sympathy! Kathie you have 
been a wonderful roommate throughout the year, thanks. Finally, Grads of 2002- wherever you may go, remember never to 
lose hope in everything you do, and good luck to you in the future! 1

Five years ago I took the longest ferry ride of my life and never looked back. I have been climbing relentlessly 
upward, and now stand with the cliff edge in front. All those that have loved, supported and helped me stand 
behind, holding their breath. This is takeoff, but before I step Into the air I would like to thank my parents 
who showed me what was possible, helped with the landings that weren't so smooth and refused to let me 
stay too long on the ground. I am propelled by memories, steered by friendships. As I prepare for liftoff. I 

test the strength in my body and mind, confident that these opportunities and experiences have made me 

more powerful than I can realize. My future is gleaming softly before me. Time to take flight. Goodbye and good luck

Writing this, I have realized I made many more good friends than I ever knew. We've all had crazy nights

It seems it's been a long time since I came here. It was my first time living in a foreign country; I couldn t 
understand any English and I would just smile when I didn't understand what people said. Even though my 
English still sucks, I learned many things in this school during these unforgettable three years. Thanks to 
my friends and to my parents who helped me most. Good luck to Grad 2002. 

Lavinia Lin 


I can't believe that it has been four years at SMUS; it seems like I just came here yesterday. Most 
importantly, I would like to thank Mom and Dad, for giving me unconditional canng and support: you are ■ 
like the guide of my life who leads me and always encourages me to achieve my goal. Lala, there are lots. 
of ups and downs in my life, but we have been through a lot together. Thanks for the eternal love you give

Alice Liu 


My journey at SMUS is coming to an end. Five years of learning have shaped me into the person I am today. 

First, my gratitude to God for blessing me everyday. Dad: thanks for always giving me the best. Mom: 

thanks for all the support and care. Sis: thanks for all the great jokes when I needed. Andy: "I want bow 

bow la!" -Let's go eat fish chips next Saturday." "Let's go watch movies this weekend." " Let's go eat fried 

banana with ice-cream today." Although I won't be here, my hugs will always be here when you need them. 

I will never forget all the memories we share. You've made my life beautiful! Please take care of yourself 

when Im not around. Thanks for always being there for me and loving me! I Love You! Lavin, Ann: is my 

hair longer? Ill never forget the time we've spent together, da san ba. Allan: I'll miss our long talks, my sister. Ivy: be confident! 

Youre always my little sister! Yeonjoo. Thelesa: it's Andy La. Yoohyun: thanks for all the advices and food. Jennie: I hope 

were still friends. Sam: na. Angel: hi angel. Time flies in a high speed and in a one-way path. Although my path wasn't always 

stable. I appreciate all the people who walked through it with me. No matter how long before we see each other, no matter 

how far we are apart, each one of you will remain dear in my heart. 

Nurrachman Liu 1995-2002 

Well, what can I say? My six years at SMUS. and twelve years of school, have come and gone. Time flies 
when you're having fun (most of the time, anyways). When I first arrived in middle school, I was a shy, short 
guy. Actually. I think I still am. Darn. But wait! At least I learned a lot, academically and personally. Along 
the way. I've met many amazing people. I've had a wonderful time at the school, and it has given me much... 
I'll always remember these memories. I thank all my teachers, who have taught me well and instilled in me 

a fondness for learning, and especially those who have helped me so much in grade 12. Thanks to my 

family, my mom. dad. and bro: your support has been invaluable. To all my friends, thanks for the great times, and I hope 
we'll keep in touch. To all the grads: I wish you all the best! "What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters 
compared to what lies within us." -Emerson . 

Clarence Lo 


I can still remember the first day when I came, crying on my dad's shoulder. I had never experienced boarding 
life until two years ago. It was really hard for me because I had to leave my family and friends and explore 
■ this new place alone. These two years have been unforgettable, with the love from my teachers and friends. 
■Thanks to Mrs. Skinner, who has always been nice to me. Math and music do go together! Mr. Gardiner, you 
helped me find fun in Bio. Ms. Johnston, thanks for pushing me up to ChemH. Also, many thanks to Mr. 
Weinerman, Mr. Leggatt. Ms. Hawes, Ms. MacDonald. Ms. Stanford. Ms. Ding and Ms. Tobacco. I mustn't 
forget to mention my dearest roommate. Kathryn. I really had fun rooming with you. I enjoyed the late night chats witn you, 
though sometimes I didn't get any response from you since you'd already fallen asleep. I will never forget the time when we 
studied for the Bio provincial together. Those stupid jokes (about your bf and the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious) made me 
remember the diagrams. You're my best roommate: my best friend in SMUS. I'll miss you very much, ang eh, wa ga li gong

1 It feels a little awkward writing this since it is based upon the assumption that I am actually going to graduate. 

Like a lighthouse in a bog. I've been described as brilliant, but absolutely useless. Nevertheless, I arrived at 

SMUS in 1 998 with little more than a mullet, a hockey stick and a slight hint of an Arabic accent. As none of 

these seemed to impress anyone at SMU, (tough crowd) I had to find a way to make friends. Three BC finals 

and one shiny nng later I thank god that rugby found me. To the band of brothers. No regrets! To the girls/ 

future groupies?? I really meant it when I told you all you were the best. To the mountain crew, just remember 

lappensin the woods, stays in the woods. Except for three steps and Bojangles. To the band, if we aren't famous by now, 

we're probably living in a van - down by the river! Finally - to my family, thank you all so much for your support. I love you guys... 

its like we're family... wait a minute. Final thoughts - Dankshar, Shawnigan, Kermit dances, Edgefests, lyallpoloozas - all this 

leads us to the inevitable conclusion of what we knew all along - Olyall Ru.... well do I really need to finish that. Tum up the radio. 

It's been a slice. "But everybody's gone, and I've been here for too long To face this on my own. well I guess this is growing up 


Beckle Macdonald 


Thank you so much Stephen for everything you've done for me: I would never be the person I am today 

without you. Mom. Leah and Deisha. - thanks for keeping me company on the phone: I love you guys so 

much. My sports career at SMUS will never be forgotten: to the volleyball girls- I don't know, Suz huh I 

don't know. Clari- Fire alarm! Anna- well what can I say. without us. . .things would definitely be different. 

Stump- Australia 2001 was a blast, thanks for making me laugh. Jo- wake me up. before you go go. Aleksa- 

weve sure come a long way since grade 10: tell your mom she's the best! Ho- two years of being roomies, 

my fondest memory is the day we got a hot shower, p.s. who are the top two and don't hold it! Chantal- J'aime le garcon de 

noir.. .my French is getting there :) You're the most caring person I know, thanks for being you. Three years at SMUS has 

left me with unforgettable memories I'll always treasure.

At last, the adventure of high school that will soon fade into gilded memories in my already far-too-crowded 
emotional database is at an end. I am still debating, however, which parts to remember and which to forget 
and be reminded of at somewhat embarrassing moments in my future (I already have the TV contracts). 
ril always remember being able to travel around the world (25 countries) and living overseas (Nepal, 
Denmark, Pakistan), experiences which have definitely contnbuted positively to my life. Mike: Where would 
I be had you not opened my eyes to the wonder world of the Internet? (Don't answer that question). Conal: 

Arr, matey, keep them Spaniards at bay! Bailey: woof! Rebecca: My hair belongs to me. but you can always 

join my crusade. Grace: Remember, you can go far with an accent like that (so long as everybody s like me) And here's advice 
foryou all: 1.) By utterly crushing a transgressor in full view of his compatnots, an enforcer not only solves the onginal problem 
beyond all doubt but also ensures that all that see it dare not stray from the path of the law. Eventually the actual physical 
presence of the enforcer is not required to enforce the law. 2.) Light a man a fire, and he's warm for a day. Set a man on 
fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life. And finally, 3,) When life gives you lemons, invade Poland... Huzzah! 


What can I say about my two years at SMUS? Well I guess after a rocky year of "insomnia in grade 1 1 , 

I really found who and what I cared about in grade 12. It's been a great grad year with great people. The 

barnacle boys, Colson and Brian, and without a doubt Kat, have had a huge impact on my life. I wish I could 

mention everyone but hey. you know who you are! I don't know where I'll end up next year or what I'll be 

doing but I'll never forget any of you. Neither will I forget the places, the Rise, the beach. John's and 

Barnacle house. To my house parents you've guided me through some hard times. To my best fhends 

(you know who you are) I've had a great year with you guys and I will always remember the lost hours of sleep. Brian, hopefully 

you will have an awesome time next year. Colson, never forget about what we talked about that day on the beach. Finally 

Kat, What ever happens I'll always need you to organize my life! Well, Peace to the izzout,"lf you can look into the seeds 

of time, and say which grain will grow and which will not, speak then to me, "—Mac Beth, 1:3

Of all my days at SMUS since 1 993, I've never encountered a sadder moment than the time my grad wnte- 
up didn't make it to the yearbook staff.. . but I can explain. The reason you are not reading my own words 
right now is that a band of thirty-two and a half ghost pirates jumped me while I was walking briskly to the 
computer lab to send off my 960 characters of fond memories and inspirational quotes. Before I knew it, 
the ugliest thirty-two and a half ghost pirates you've ever seen were jumping out of their ghost pirate ship 
cursing ghost pirate swears, and grabbing at my chehshed write-up. To make a long story short. I failed 
to hand in my own grad whte-up as it was in the possession of ghost pirate hoodlums.

For me St. Michaels was like a bad thp. There were a few parts I really got off on. but for the most of it I 
just truly wanted it to end. My friends, I will never forget you and some of the crazy stuff you did J.W. M.G. 
C.C, J,D, G.M, C,A, R,E, Y,E, G,P,H and my great friends Sebastian and Emilie. J.D take care of yourself

It's not about the place, it's about the people. Not what you leave behind but what you take with you and 
who you let come along for the hde. During my years at SMUS wonderful people that have taught me so- 
much about life and myself. Always my family comes first. My parents for their vision. C for the years of 
craziness, Adam and his silent strength. Uncle for your constant support and big brother for always looking 
out I wouldn't be here without Mrs, I and Mrs. H (my 2nd Moms). My best friends JM. the greatest summer 
of my life. CD to the stars and back. The Bonairs! Diva- for being my other half never judging and always 
' understanding. Senorita- you're nuts but! love your strength you've given me so much. Yankee- my blonde 
darling always saying the hght thing at the nght time and making me smile. Hooter- due to all our talks you've made me tough 
and helped in so many ways. NB for all we've been through. I love you. A combination of music and SMUS girls and guys 
thanks for all the fun and good luck! "Because you leave when you have to or when you're meant to And part of you dies when

Here it is. Life as I know it is about to change dramatically. For the past thirteen years I have lived one school 

week at a time, and now it's all about to change. Thank you everyone who made it all possible: my family, 

friends, teachers, peers, and God. Mr. and Mrs. Cameron, you have been like a second set of parents to 

me: thank you for being you and always being supportive. To my classmates and friends, we had some 

good times, but not nearly enough. The Bolton Prefects: Shorty T (Chan), Speed, Jamie, Adam, and my 

roommate in gr. 1 1 Mike (who?), thanks guys. To the bailers in gr. 1 1 : Tuks, Chris K, and Matt, keep working 

hard. JD (automatic) and Chris (snipe): my roommate in gr. 1 2, keep shooting. Hansi-man (ya bum) thanks 

for everything: keep in touch. Dev. I wouldn't have survived without you, thanks for everything. Some memories to leave with: 

late night movies, bball after prep, watching sports and Simpsons, not doing homework, playing guitar, MJ shrine, and just 

everything. To all my fnends. see you on the flipside. -Sam "Can I rise above everything that's in my way . . .when push comes

These past four years have been challenging, insightful, memorable, but mostly fun. SMUS has seen me 
through the good and difficult times. To the best friends I could ask for: AM-you have been my mentor, Sunday 
sister and my closest friend. Thank you for your inspiration. MP- no more VIP, bhindi marks or Douglas furs! 
You've shown me my strengths and weaknesses. KV and FB-you've been so much fun. I'll never forget car

I would first like to thank my parents and grandparents for making this incredible opportunity for me 
possible. As I embarked on this life changing adventure. I was not sure what to expect, but with a warm 
welcome from Mr. and Mrs. Cameron and the rest of the Bolton House. I immediately started to enjoy 
. myself and to feel at home. I would like to thank my mentor. Father Edward, for his continual guidance and 
support. Jamie Ford for always being there for me and for making Victoria much more entertaining, and 
Walter for a truly appreciated fnendship. I would also like to offer my thanks and praise to my house parents, 
the Camerons. my room mate John Speed, my good friends Jamie and Trevor, and a paean to Mr. Common for everything. 
Finally I extend my greatest appreciation to my grandmother for making this possible and to my dear mother for her unstinting 
support and her truly unbounded love. It has been one of my greatest honors to attend St. Michaels, and I will carry the 
school s pride for the rest of my life. "It's no use trying to be clever - we are all clever here: just try to be kind - a little kind."-

Coming to SMUS in grade 1 was a huge and very drastic change for me. I couldn't ask for more! Kristie 

- 1 can't believe I just did that. So many laughs off of that one! Winnie - Remember grade 10 always! I'm 

always here for anything. Monkey! Beckie - Don't forget San Diego! "Turn the lights on, I'm scared"! You'll 

miss the quality of the massages! Mar - Wanna go to the gym? Ashley - Gr.1 1 were the days! Elise - I lost 

the number! Yori - I only wish I saw you around more! I love hanging with you! See you in Alberta. Anna 

-The banana card says it all! Yellow mustang...! know this isn't the end! Kathryn - Hot tub? Thanks for just 

being you! So many good times! B-ball - The bank is open! Milica - What am I going to do without you 

around? We will always be the girls! Jelena - If only I got to know you better, I will always look up to you (even though I am 

taller than you)! Milan - I can't count the number of times you made me laugh so hard. I'm your DD. Mom and Dad - You 

are the ones who have helped me through it all. -Aleksa

My arrival at SMUS in grade 8 came as a great shock to me. I was fresh out of catholic school; holding hands 
was a sin and certain ■liquids" were only intended for the use of cleaning cuts. But in all honesty . and minus 
a few details, the only difference between elementary school and high school is the lack of a playground. 
Right now my goal in life is to be as carefree as I was when I was eight. I cannot imagine a time in my life 
when I cant laugh at my own foolishness even if it includes, well, basically almost everything I've done so 
far. The reason why I am who I am today is because I have never stopped laughing. I must credit this to 
the fact that I have been surrounded by the most interesting and incredible group of people for five years 
I don't think there is any possible way to sum up friendships that mean the world to me. You guys truly understand me and 
I could never thank you enough for that. To my parents, thank you for letting me spread my wings and soar among all my 
hopes and dreams. Without you I would be lost. You have given me every opportunity possible and I will' never forget that 
All I can say now is that graduating is a beautiful thing. Cheers!

■Time of your life" echoes through the nearly vacant theatre as the white credits roll up the screen. I read 

"Mexikanz played by Nikita, Geoff, (What are ya doinman?) Nate. Andy, Pete. Chns. Bailey. Mark. J. P. 

J.D. Support Crew ■■D.Williams. C. Skinner and the Family. " I close my eyes and feel like I did at the end 

of Empire, when I knew there was so much more still to come. Sitting back. I just want to rewind and watch 

it all over again. It's a backwards blur of a million mornings and classes, but the focus never stays there 

for long: it draws in on the in-between times. The old friendships and the new ones, and the people I've 

loved and love still. It skips over summers of skimboarding. bombin' the bay, Thetis. Kings Of The Street, 

40 Mexikanz. frizz, beaches, sailing and sun. and whips past the long wet winters. I see myself shrink and get fat and I'm 

suddenly at my first day at the old school (not yet so old). Who knew it would be these same people, love them or hate them. 

that would be part of the strange community that grew with me and helped me to grow. Sitting alone in a dark theatre for long 

periods of time isn't normal; sol step out. squint in the sunlight, and turn back to reality, thinking about what a sequel might 

be like. "Lovin' is what I got. I said remember that. " Bradley

A young, shy catholic school boy arrived at SMUS in grade 8 with hair only on his head. The girls with short 

skirts and braces attacked Ryan leaving him with a sense of fashion and a girlfriend. The boys (or saints) 

welcomed Ryan into the Fnday night PPC full of movies. N64. and moms. Dewar-1 2 years. 3 schools, a great 

friendship, and a lot of fun. Sean; my partner in crime, showed me the other side of life, what memories! Sollis; 

new-found love. He saw a witch once. Tweak it. Jawl-Bros; before Hoes, you never listened. Pyke; my 

dedicated workout budy, you tried Mike. Kipp-Clubbers for Life. Woody, Nick, Couvie, Colson, Robby; Keep 

it real. Kristen, high-school sweetheart, what a horrible boyfriend I was. Sorry! UWC. the boat journey. Mt. 

Washington trip, summer of Shawnigan. dewar the sun is shining over the rainbow, chapeaus parties, bean-bag chair, the 78. 

RYRADAC. dowhy-fest. Oak-Bay tea party. I missed a lot because of hockey (RED HOT SALSA) but would not trade my hockey 

memories (Provincial champs. 2nd in Western Canada). I missed rugby and I missed basketball (wow was I good). But a man 

once said. ■'Freedom is being able to live with the consequences of your decisions." Thank you Mom. Dad, family for pushing 

me to be the best I can be. PS. I apologize to the people that hate me. See you in the next life.

SMUS has been more than just something to look back on; Ive lived a lifetime here. Well, at least thirteen 
years anyway. Each one of those years seemed to go by slowly. I never expected to be thrust into my grad ■ 
year, with plans for the future, and a whole new beginning to life. And only now (with a few short months 
left), have I realized that the years I thought would last forever have slipped by without my even noticing. 
I've had so much fun with friends that nothing I wnte could do justice to the times we've spent. Some of 
the best fhends I'll ever have I've met here, some right from the young days of kindergarten, and many more 

along the way. To my girls; I love you all. and never forget how fun. and amazing each of you are. in your own way. To all 

the guys; It's definitely been fun! To those I have left behind; Hang in there; you'll be finished before you know it' To my family; 

I want to thank you for everything, you've been great. I love you all! And to the siblings; You may have a long way to go yet. 

but treasure every moment, have fun. and be good! And finally to everyone I've already mentioned, and to those I haven't; 

I've learnt from you all, and with the knowledge I have acquired. I'm finally ready to cross the finish line. Good luck to the 

graduating class of 2002. I wish each of you the very best! IT'S BEEN FUN!

If 1 were to acknowledge anyone for my triumpli and failure, it would be my parents. My 46 cfiromosomes 

were pretty much essential in my life, as well as my education. Yes indeed, eacti of their 23 segments of 

genetic information have come in handy, and I am grateful Mommy and Daddy. As far as faculty goes. Alan 

will always be remembered. He introduced me to the pain and pleasure of two wheels. Judy T: I must thank 

for getting me to run as hard as I could, even if she never remembered to bring Oreos. Leggat was 

instrumental for teaching me to properly fly fish, instead of just waiving a stick above my head. McLeod 

was a great...! cant quite place what it was but he was really great at it and I owe him more than I know. To anyone I have 

made friends with. I wish you all the success, because I'm sure not going to have it. Keep in touch so I can borrow money 

some day. The future is hazy and I think I lost the manual. Ah well, dam's de brakes.

Finally the school is over! Thank you mom and dad for supporting me till now. I also appreciate my fellows 
whod always been there for me. My lovely sis. I won't forget about what we were always fighting for in the 
residence. Deri. I won't forget your hairstyle which was much like woo hyuk's, Yeon Joo, wherever you go, 
whatever you do, I hope you wouldn't change your mind too often. Yoo hang. I'll miss your cooking so much! 
Hyun Joo. don't give too much flirt on every boys- Min Gee, I hope you will survive at SMU. Min Jung, don't 

put yourself too tight (you are too skinny!). Yuko, it was nice to be your roommate this year. (I wish I could 

go to Japan dunng this summer.) Hyo Jung. I hope you'll get tanned a little (your skin is too pale!). And thanks a lot to my 
all class teachers. Lastly, to someone I truly love, thank you for being there' when I needed although you might have been 
suffered at the same time. I wish you the best and hope you'll achieve everything you wanted.

You'd think after 5 years of school here Id have more to say. I'll probably think of something profound to 
write long after this has been published but I suppose these things happen. I could always give my shout 
outs to AB and CD in the EFG but then I'd end up looking at this years and years from now and wondering 
who AB and CD are and if they still make EFGs anymore. In short, my time here has been well spent and 
I have lots of people to thank for that. You know who you are. To those I have loved, you know I love you. 
To those I didn t know, well-l loved some of you, too. To those I never got along with- don't worry: somebody 
else probably loved you for me.

patience and his grandmother for mal<ing it all possible. When contemplating what to say in this seemingly 
unimportant bulletin of 1 8 years of life, it is hard to pick out specific moments which I can sincerely say that 
I will remember for the rest of my lite. However, a few things stand out in my life at SMUS. In chronological 
order: Playing soccer in grade 4, Breaking Brad's arm. Presents from Glen. Highlight reel soccer with 
Woody, Snowboarding with Karlie. Colts Rugby. Rugby Tour and the following second bout of 

pneumonia. Joining the bodybuilding community with an equally as skinny Patnck in grade 1 1 . Discovering that -Life is all

It seems strange to be saying my goodbyes, when 1 feel as it I've only just arnved! I stepped of the plane 

to glorious sunshine, thus was lulled into a false sense of security as I topped up my tan into September. 

Somewhere along the line, the heavens opened and someone forgot to close the door. Several rain-filled 

months later (and no, it does not rain THIS much where I am from!), I've finally grasped the 'lingo" of a 

land where "pants" are trousers and "fries" are chips, and seem to have survived the culture shock! My 

biggest thank you's must go to my roomie Candace, for putting up with me; Kathryn, for always being there; 

and Rebecca, for all the car rides (lock the door!) and weekend adventures. There are so many people I have to thank for 

making this year the success it has been, and there isn't enough room for you all. But to those people, you know who you 

are. I will never forget you. There is always floor space in my crummy student flat in Edinburgh! Till we meet again... "The 

word 'Now' is like a bomb through the window, and it ticks." Arthur Miller.

A lot of people are really glad that school is over and they can move on to bigger and better things. I feel 
exactly the opposite. I really didn't want school to end— but the old cliche is true: ■All good things must 
come to an end." Before I finish, however, I would like to say, here's to the Grad class of 2002! Thanks 
Khstie (Here's to dancing around the room in kindergarten). Thanks Elise (we're going to conquer that 
French). To all the lifers: I'm really going to miss you guys. Thanks Kate and Jen for always sticking by 
me. To my family: thanks for such a wonderful education. And last but not least, thanks to all my teachers 
who made this the best time I could ever irhagine.^^ ._

"To my array of friends and acquaintances: it's good to see you again at SMU, after returning from ESQ (long 

live the music). Cronies established during the middle school era include: Conal (remember blackjack?) , Jav 

(what kind of connect 4 will we invent next), and Kasim (Razmatazz, when are the dolls coming out of the 

closet)! Senior school is a blast. Anna, I enjoyed your comments on 'bitch sport'. Alex, sometime tell me 

some advanced rowing tips and thcks (haha). PJ man, you must admit the K car is a pretty phat place to be. 

KOzone, we should chill more. Vicky, your teths skill is mind numbing. Sorry if I have omitted anyone. Yes. 

I have some splendid teachers this year. Mr. Gardiner, thanks for your part in the cultivation of our brains. Mr. Leggatt. your 

frequent tinkering with colourful potions suggests that you are none other than a wizard! Thanks most of all to my family, you 

are very important to me. To the grads, I am glad to have known you, and wish each the best of luck. Witness grad diffusion

Well it has been three years and I have had a blast at SMUS. Out of all the schools I have gone to. SMUS 
is by far my favourite; But I don't think I could have made it without the support from family, teachers and • 
fhends. My love and thanks go out to Elsie and Mahsol, my geology study buddies, for all the times you 
guys stood by me. Khstie: I will never forget searching for your tennis balls in Windsor Park, a true 
adventure if you ask me. Devon: I'm so glad we got to know each other better. Thanks for being my 
geography partner in grade 11.1 hope I returned all your pens. To Rebecca, Megan, Anne-Mane and 

^ ju forthe wonderful memohes. And Ashley, you have made my years atSMUS complete. Your ongoing love, 

support and sense of humour will stay with me forever and may our fhendship continue for many years to come. To my family. 

you are the reason I am the person I am today. I love you guys very much. And finally to the Grad class of 2002. this is only 

the beginning. Live it all! ■

So many years, such little space. Since starting SMUS way back in Grade 4, 1 ve made a lot of good triends, 

and had some excellent times (Arr. me mateys). Naturally, there have been bad times too, but I prefer not 

to remember those. I want to thank all my friends, and hope we stay that way. Hugh: Try not to be TOO 

Aryan, says I: Mike: I don't think III EVER like D.T, but you never know; Kasim: Just missed me - again!; 

PJ: III drag my Mini vs. your KCar one day: Ashlin: 1'!! come around to jazz eventually: Meara: I am NOT 

RUSSELL (or am I?): Nicola: Waiiuwe!: Javier: good times (too many to list!); Rebecca: Weka! Dwa! 

tThanks for listening: Bogutz: would you like the oil checked today, too?; Grace: You're NOT annoying: 

Alex: Hey look! No pessimism, Saltspring jokes, or my being misanthropic! Thanks for always being there. To my parents: 

Thank you for everything, although I may not have ever expressed it enough. To anyone I forgot: my apologies - you know 

it wasn't intentional. "I was trying to feel some kind of a good-bye ... I don't care if it's a sad good-bye or a bad good-bye, 

but when I leave a place I like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't, you feel even worse." -Holden Caulfield, Catcher In The 

Rye Well, that's it. Good luck all. and keep in touch.

Ryan Sollis 

The end of the beginning has arrived. Five years ago. when I first arrived in grade eight at the Middle School, 
I thought that graduation was a long way away. But time is a tricky thing: the present drags on. the future 
beckons, and the past whizzes by. My years at St. Michaels have taught me a lot about academics and about 
other people; but more importantly, SMUS helped me discover more about myself. An enormous part of this 
personal development and discovery I owe to my teachers: Mr. Young, Mr. Richards. Mr. Keble, Ms. Roth, 

Mr. Gauthier, Dr. Matthews. To all of you, thank you. To those who made it possible for me to come to St. 

Michaels in the first place - Mr. Wilson, the Hudsons. Mr. Snowden - thank you. To my parents for always being there - thank 
you. From the support, encouragement and inspiration of these people and many others, I have now arrived at a place of many 
diverging paths. Perhaps they all ultimately lead to the same place - 1 don't know. But what I do know is that with one hand holding 
a St. Michaels diploma and the other hand outstretched, anything is possible. One of my favourite authors. Oscar Wilde, once 
said, "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. " I want to not only look at. but also reach for the stars. 


Ryan came to SMUS in the year 2001 as a mid-sized, skinny kid from Philly. He walked and talked 
differently from everyone else, but there was something he had which others did not: the chill factor. What 
is the chill factor? It's something that Sollis brought to SMUS life, and something that has brushed off on 
his friends in a good way. Ryan wants to thank his mom and dad. To the SMUS guys: Keep muckin' it in 
the corners and keep it real. Ryan spent lots of time in the gym, but unfortunately it didn't pay off as he 
left SMUS as a mid-sized, skinny kid from Philly. 

Tristan Spearing 


Wow. After 13 years of SMU, I'm not sure what to say, except that I guess I get one of those beer mugs. 
I've learned a lot. though I'm not sure that I can remember any of it. Junior school was fun, as was middle 
school, but the highlight was definitely senior school: parties, skiing, snowboarding and rock climbing. It 
was great. To those who helped me, my friends and family, thanks for everything. 

John Speed 


Upon entering the school in grade 9, 1 was oblivious to what was going on around me. I had no idea that 

people were cutting corners by skipping the occasional class or, as a boarding student, sneaking out at 

night. It was a sure fire way for me to lose my focus and to end up with the rest of the crowd. Despite it 

all. I overcame the challenge by working hard and by being naive. Following that year, things started to 

pick up and I found a new found respect for the school, as well as the students, upon the discovery of some 

profound people who have taught me more than what I've learned in the classroom. There was the 

eccentric Brian Wu who was my friend and mentor, my soft-spoken friend Daisuke Yukawa and my brother Paul who kept 

me well grounded. Last but not least there's my parents who deserve more than their share of credit and appreciation for 

lifting me up when I was down. I love them and thank them for offering me a fuller life. In a category of her own, I'm going 

to mention someone who has been more than a friend. Talia Weston is unlike many who I have met and deserves a thousand 

kisses for her impact on my life. In embarking into university, I can look back on my times at SMUS and say that they were 

some of the best times of my life. I may forget the things I learned from my teachers but I'll never forget the people who have 

paved my path to life long success and happiness.

let's have same kind of spnng break again. H.F.: Comosun trip is over. Last but not the least, thanks to my family, mom, and 

dad: you gave me the greatest help and support. Anyways, to all grads. I love you all!! 



This is my first and hopefully (I don't really want to repeat Gr.12) my last year studying at SMUS. In these 
few months, I've already gained so much experience that I feel my self grow old all of a sudden. Although 
not all things that I've gone through are good, it's not bad at all. Last but not least, thanks to all who became 
my friends and cared about me. I would really like to spend more time with you people, maybe outside 
school? A movie would be nice.

Well. Its been a long 13 years here at SMUS. Fnends. family and the odd teacher have made life here 
bearable, sometimes fun. Regrettably, I haven't been able to do everything I set out to accomplish: 
however, I've made many fond memories throughout my school days. Junior school: i can't remember 
much of those days. Middle school was great: DMB starting us off on our rugby careers. Senior school 
was, well, you all know how senior school is. Rugby was exciting as always, with 7's. KoZone Adventure 
Tours, and XV's. 



I want to thank the school for keeping an eye on me since kindergarten. To the lifers, oh, the days of running 
around in kindergarten trying to kiss each other. Elise. to the best spring break ever! Always remember 
•Who gives a S@&S#! " Mar, shock me, shock me. shock me, with that deviant behaviour. Thanks for always 
being there for me, and always go sing in the rain. Aleksa, did he just cut me off? Mitsy. Amy and Aleksa, 
Oh I can't believe I just did that! " Mandie and Devon, keep a lookout for the eyeball of terror. Ashley. I can't 

believe you missed our surprise party! By the way thanks Mandie for all the parties, Louise, to the rolling 

of pumpkins down the hall. Sofball rocks Rebecca, keep playing. Elise and Stu, yay for Nickelback! Stu. to the good times 
driving (you are so jinxed). To my bunch of gals, we've had our rough times but thanks for being there. Granny thanks for 
the awesome education and support. Mom and Dad, you have supported me !00°o of the way. I will always be grateful and 
always love you! To the grad class of 2002. ..Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance 
like nobody's watching. Sing like nobody's listening. Live like there's heaven on earth. 

Kristen Vernon 1995-2002 

It must've been good, if I can look back and realize its been worth it. My time at SMU has been enjoyable 

thanks to a few certain people. Flori. for the last 7 years you've been my best friend and partner in crime. 

I will never forget the memorable times in Argentina (feme & iguana, the twins. Alta Gracia at the Bossi's, 

and La Fontana) , and our snowboarding supremacy. Thank you for always being there for me, and making 

these years more exciting and unpredictable. Avalon: thank you for your invaluable friendship, support. 

and all the good times. You are a kind and talented person and you truly deserve your success in the future. 

To Mallory the founder of the P-Club. AN the Afghani pnncess. and VIP-girl Fran: you guys have been great friends, and I 

will never forget you. Ryan, you've always been a very important person in my life, I will never forget our times together. 

Johnny: stay strong, embrace your Amencan blood, and watch out for the girls. I have faith you'll follow the footsteps of Uncle 

Mike into the NHL. Mom and Dad. thank you for your constant love, support, and confidence. I love you guys. To all the rest 

who have affected me in some way during my years at SMU. adversity has only made me stronger, so thanks for the hurdles.

First and foremost, much love and thanks to mom and dad for blessing and chenshing me until this date 
No words can express my gratitude. To my one and only sister Sung Hyun who still haven't found the 
perfect one: I love you so much for always trusting and believing in me. To sweetest little piggy Julia Lee, 
I wish you good lucl< with your boyfnend. I l<now you are going to marry him. To Anna Park who 
"H.O.T", I know you are going to meet them someday. Just keep on dreaming. To Thelesa Chung who 

hopes to marry a rich guy who's sister owns a beauty shop so she can get her hair done everyday. I know 

you can make that dream come true. You just have to become super slender and loose at least 20 pounds from now on. To 
Yeon Joo Bae, I will miss our trips and missions to Ebizo (chop chop scallop cone and hot port noodle). To all the people 
I know in SMUS (including all the Koreans), you guys will remain most dear in my heart, I wish you guys the best. Lastly, 
thanks to all the teachers in SMUS. ^ 


I came to SMU in Grade 9 as a social outcast, a pasty sullehfriendless glasses-and-braces-weanng geek. 

Now, four years later, I no longer have glasses or braces,,, I've got so many people to thank that I'd 

personally strangle the character limit if it had anything resembling a neck. Hugh, thanks for Ph34r1 ng my 

I33t h4x0r ski Hz and passing the Goat-torch to the next generation. Conal: always remember, if the 

Scatman can do it, so can you. Rebecca, words cannot express how muchsdfhs°o'^@/DWA! Grace, thank 

you for not kicking me in the groin repeatedly, even when I was being somewhat less than "devilish". Kasim, 

just remember - we always do something fun. Pick two while you're thinking about that, Nicola, please don't shoot guys in 

the head when they ask you what time it is. And, of course, thanks condolences to everyone else who's been in a room with 

me on a regular basis and avoided going insane. It's been alternately fun and not fun, just like life, hmm? I know you're 

supposed to end these things with a quote, so I'll use the only one that seems suitable... 

"I could've stayed in the past. Could've even been king. But in my own way, I am king. Hail to the king, baby," 

Matthew Woodland 1996-2002 

After receiving the call up from the GNS farm leaguesto the big show at SMU. Matt made a formidable 

impression. His career spanned the same years as Big Country Reeves', although the latter enjoyed less 

success. His illustrious career was highlighted by victories over Lakehill and Spicer's team, a tour to the 

UK where he put his medicinal instincts to use to fix a remedy for Paps in suburban Glasgow and days 

spent pondering the existence of the quintessential rabbert. Memories of peering out of a seedy stnp club 

door to see Dunga and his version of Glasgow Jenny and the honey pot. Chucking the pigskin with Sally 

' (So I was talking to Stephanie,,, you won't believe what happened). Learning the finer points of rucking 

upon admitting to my sins at Maddenfest, A blery good Kaffir calling me boss ja? Sagasse, Expenencing the Cold War in 

Costa Rica and the unforgettable adventures of scalp man. Matt showed his philosophical side as he contemplated how 

many could fit in a car or on a cross (Good luck in Dagobah). Hambone good luck at Reefer U. Flori, Skipp, and Dutchie good 

luck and stay chill, Bekki. you've made it all memorable, more than all the stars. Mom, Dad, Nana, and Georgie - thanks 

for the opportunity to go here it was the greatest of pleasures. "A witty quote proves nothing," ^ 

"A conclusion is simply the place where someone got tired of thinking. " -Block 

Joanna Wynn 


I came to SMU a short (true) four year old with terrible hair, and I am proud to leave with a future in sight, 

a million memories, decent hair, and the best friends anyone could dream of. Thirteen years of tears, 

melodramatic middle school (Flor and Kristen), boys, time with friends, and so much laughter it hurts. And 

gosh we had fun. The girls: you are my sanctuary, my shrinks, my saviors, and my replacement sisters. 

Liz. you've always been there for me, and I will always be just a call away. Never forget our trips: Costa 

Rica. Montreal, the Lake, and the laughs (millions of them)! Grade my US girl. Minions, dinner nights with 

Sheila, -why are you STILL eating?" movie nights, and more, Aussie 03 is on. I'll miss you. Franny: you'll always be a mess. 

TT was created on Halloween. You and Grace: Vancouver trips, modeling photos and all over trouble. Andrea: your 

excitement and positivity will take you places that no one could ever dream of. Gall me when you've written your book (chem 

1 1 ). Karls Mt.Washington is our haven. Stakeout at Liz's. The Bball girls:Steve will always be our princess. Bear you prove 

that there are some amazing males on this earth. Mom and Dad, thank you for believing in me. Kath: my hero and my best 

friend. I love you. To everyone who has touched my life at all, Thanks.

Good Lucic Grad 2002 

Wind. Rain. More rain. Blisters. Any sport 
that involves so much discomfort is very 
special. A record number of almost 60 row- 
ers participated this year, and achieved ex- 
cellent results during a competitive season. 
Due to the extremely large team, some ath- 
letes practiced on the water Tuesday, Thurs- 
day and Saturday, while others attended on 
just Saturday. Regardless, all crews pulled 

-y and sent on six crews to the Island Champi- 
onships. Special recognition goes to the Se- 
nior Girls 2x, which placed 2nd at the Islands; 
the Senior Novice Girls 8+ also placed 2nd, the Senior Novice Boys 8+ placed 
third; and the Junior Novice Boys 4x placed 3rd. All of the athletes involved this 
season improved tremendously, due to their commitmentand their great coaches. 
Thanks to Mrs. Walinga, Jeff Len and Tracy for their tremendous effort and 
dedication (sorry about all those crashes.'). This is the first year that SMUS will 
be sending a team on to the Nationals in June, in St. Catherine 's, Ontario. To all 
the rowers congratulations on a great season and pull hard!

The Senior Field Hockey Team spent the majority of the season 

celebrating the "Year of the Pony". With a theme in place, the 

k. team comoeted aeainst other AA schools during leaaue 

In aaaition to 

many tournaments including: Friendship Cup. 

Bridgman Cup, ISA, Islands, andBC's. The Islands this 

year were held in Victoria, and the team finished in 2'"' 

, place, after knocking offGNS and SMS. The team then 

/traveled to Burnaby, and competed in the Provincial AA 
Championships. After a gritty and inspiring performance, 
the team finished a respectable 5''' place in the province. 
Key performers for the team this year included co-captains 
Liz Munroe and Andrea Thompson, Florencia Bonet, and 
Karlie O'Connor. I look forward to another excellent season

The Senior Girls' team had the most successful season in SMUS history. The first 

indication of the team's talent came with a strong second place finish at the ISA 

K tournament where the girls were undefeated until the finals. At the Saltspring 

\ tournament, the teamfmishedfirst in a very strong pool. Once again, the girls went 

■ \ down in the finals, losing another veiy close third game to Highlands. At the city 

41 tournament, however, the team came out on top over rival Lambrick Park. 

^ j finishing first in AA. Going into the Islands ranked third, hopes we^" hi oh fnr n 

' Provincial berth. A hard-earned third place finish at the Islands i 

secure a place at the Provincials, though it did give the girls a chance to make it via 

'^ a Wildcard. Anna Burianova was named an All-Star at the Island Tournament. A 

■ second place finish at the Wildcard tournament meant that the SMUS volleyball team 

' would get a chance to compete against the top teams in the Province, arguably for the first 

^ ^ time. So, the hotel in Mission became somewhat of a second home for two weekends in a row, 

as both the Wildcard and the'Provincials took place in "downtown " Mission. During a stressful! exam week, the girls played volleyball during 
the day and wrote exams in the hotel at night. Making it to the Provincials, however, made this slight inconvenience worthwhile and the memories 
of this season will last longer than the pain caused by the exams. Thank you very much for a great season girls! -Anna

After the season opening ISA exhibition tournament, the team [ 
finished 2-2-2, which proved to be an uncanny prophecy of the season to 
come. The first fidl ISA game was tragically lost 24-12 to Brentwood. The 
team showed a general disinterest in tackling, which was further ham- 
pered by the season ending loss of P. Fernandez, the team 's best defender. 
Following a veiy lopsided home defeat to Shawnigan. the team quickly 
refocused its attention on St. George's, traditionally the toughest oppo- 
nent. Despite tremendous SMUS pressure in the waning minutes, several 
missed opportunities allowed the hosts decisively win. A 32-5 victory over 
Dover Bay, achieved with a balanced effort from both forwards and backs, 
certainly boosted team confidence. At Shawnigan, the team led for much 
of the match but couldn't pull together to win, which resulted in a 17-17 
tie. B. Paick demonstrated some excellent skills, while A. Cavin again 
played a strong game as well. On a muddy day. D. Kim had tremendous 
success in the hooker position. The best performance of the season was 

also the final ISA game at Brentwood. J. Kim was outstanding in open field play; his tremendous work rate in.%trumental m several of th

school matches, resulting in a record of 9 . 

wins and 7 losses. Finishing with a re- / 
spectable 6- 1 record and in 2nd place in ■ 
the city competition. The team qualified I 
for the Island tournament, and claimed a ^ 
well-deserved 4th place finish. The season 
should not be judged however by the record ^ 
of wins and losses, but by the personal K

As school began in SeptemberTm^ anticipated by many that this would be a very successful 
season for the Senior Boys Soccer Team^^H^the exception of a few players, the team list 
looked very similar to that which won the Islaiw^^t^^r Championship two years earlier. ^^^^ 
The position of goalkeeper was one, which took timet^Si^with rookie, Andrew Bailey ^r 
assuming this role. He showed considerable improvemen^f^ ' ^ ' 

season, with both skill and positional play. The team also suffered the loss of three / 
key players early in the season due to injury, or in the case of Craig Covin, pending 
jaw surgery. Throughout the regular season, the team started slowly against | 
opponents and found themselves trying to fight back from early goal deficits. The 
team worked hard and was led by Aaron Bogutz, Sean Bell and David Spicer. The 
league was also quite strong this season and we finished in a disappointing eighth 
place, which allowed us to compete in the Colonist Shield playoffs. With all players 
back from injury, we defeated fifth place Claremont in an exciting 6-5 overtime game 
and then went on to victory in the Colonist Shield final against Stellys. This was a strong fmish 
to a disappointing season, that left many wondering what could have been, lest the injuries.

The 2002 Track 
and Field team 

featured a wide vari- 
ety of talents, from those that have never previously competed on 
a school team to others whose main athletic focus throughout the 
third term have been the meets in May and June. Overall goals for 
the season included personal improvement and encouragement of 
new athletes. With lots of hard work and cfefgrm^^p |j i (Hp^^ . 
jumpers, and throwers advanced their skills and produced some 
excellent results. Once again the format of the Grand Pri.x League 
allowed students to experiment, receive expert coaching and enjoy 
extensive competitive opportunities. At the junior level, students 
were encouraged to try new events, maintain a high level of 
participation and develop fundamental skills. As the season ad- 
vanced impressive progression was evident, producing strong 
overall and individual results in the Ci^wtd-Island meets. At fh«i 
senior level several talented runners and vaulters focused on their 
specialties, resulting in numerous outstanding performances, sev- 
eral league records and many personal bests. Provincial qualifi- 
ers included Andrew Orr (2000m steeplechase), Anna Kohlen 
(pole vault), and Keny Spearing (3000m and 1500m steeple- 
chase). At the B.C. Championships all three of these exceptional 
athletes ran personal bests in their perspective events and finished 
in the top eight. The coaches. Ms. Tobacco and Ms. Hoffer wish to 

I congratulate and thank all of the students who participated during 
the season. Well done! 

Although, this year's 
Junior Girls basketball team didn 't 
have the most successful season they did 
have a great time playing together. Made up 
of a great mix of girls, we certainly proved to be the 
most fun loving of teams. Missing the city playoffs was 
definitely disappointing, but that didn 't discourage. The girls continued to 
practice and play extremely well, which was evident in the concluding 
tournament in Vancouver. It was wonderful to see the huge improve- , 
ments made by everyone from the first day oftryouts in December, right i 
the way through to the final games late in February. Congratulations . 
to all of the girls who played on the team this year, and it will f 
undoubtedly be exciting to see them progress over the next few years 
here at SMUS. Thanks also to their fabulous coach, Ms. Rebecca 
Hoffer, who pushed them to the limits, and helped develop their 
basketball skills. For the gr. 9 's. keep up the good work for next year's 
junior team, and good luck to the gr. JO's who are continuing on to the 
senior level. Remember, "Go hard or go home! "

From the outset, it appeared 
that perennial rival Mt. Douglas would be the elite squad on the Island, 
but that any one of six others might grab the coveted second berth to the 
BC AAA Tournament. So it proved for the team, after a topsy turvy 
regular season and playoffs. 

In the City Tournament, a late game collapse against Claremont 
resulted in an eventual South #4 starting position in the Islands, an event 
sperhaps fortunately held at SMUS. 

t In the opening game, against North #1 NDSS, some inspired second 
%alf defence against opposition star Angel Mack produced a six point 
WA>in. and another crack at Claremont, this time with a BC berth on the 
pne. A tremendous third quarter, sparked by Beckie Macdonald and 
^nna Burianova, saw the team up 15 points with only seven minutes to 
%lay. A nerve jangling final few minutes, complete with the traditional 
M0meback by the visitors, ended only after a crucial foul line jumper from 
tare Tweedie and some late free throws guaranteed the win. \ 
At the BCs, the school 's first visit since that of the 1 998 Final 4 ted 
e team won one of four games to finish 13"'. Macdonald and Anna 
mrianovawere the main cogs in the team, with Tweedie. Jaclyn Platen, 
'ebekka Keough and Andrea Thompson also playing a lot of minutes. 
Hhers who made valuable contributions included Robin Pierce, Jo 
^ynn, Meara Crawford and Zoe Gamache. 

; A solid nucleus of players returns for the 2002-2003 .season, with both 
le City and Island zones promising to be just as competitive. Thanks to 
ft for their efforts. 




Theseasonbeganwith L; 
' great expectations, given the \ :' 
^ arrival of several talented Grade \ 
1 Is from a successful Junior pro- 
gram. To this group was added three returning seniors, and 
newcomers Chris Ufford and Jeff Downs. 

Unfortunately, a steady stream of injuries seriously dis- 
rupted any meaningful exhibition season, with key starters out for 
extended periods of time. However, despite the public school job action, 
which limited play throughout January, the team eventually began to show 
some kind of form in the New Year. 

An 8-0 league record (including a 7 1-67 win overBC#8 Claremont) 
-et the stage for playoffs. With BC qualification at stake, the team came 
%rough underpressure, although two second half collapses against Claremont 
Itboth the City and Island finals underlined some fundamental weaknesses. 
I At the BCs, the squad played in fits and starts, never getting 

mtracked against a powerful En ver Creek outfit on Day 1 . A subsequent win 
per LV Rogers (Nelson), and tough loss to Surrey's Fleetwood Park ended 
ite quest for a top 8 provincial finish. 

i When at full strength, Logan Smythe, Ryan Willms, Jeff Downs, 

'Craig Cavin and Mike Pyke formed the starting unit. David Spicer was an 
kjivaluable 6"' man. with Dave Jawl and Mark Quinlan also in the main 
Rotation. With all but three plovers returning, the team will begin the 2002- 
f003 season ranked top 4 in BC. How it will handle life under the microscope 
Remains to be seen. 

I Manx thanks to Mr. Rick Humphreys and Mr. Cam Clark for their 

Assistance, and to the minor officials for a difficult job well done.

The Junior Boys played through adversity^ this season. They began-^as-wt 
inexperienced group but showed steady improvement and learned to play well as 
a team. The season record was 15W - 8L. After a slow start to the season, and 
injuries to key players, the boys rallied to win 13 games in a row. This winning 
streak included a ]" place finish in the Emerald Tournament at Vancouver College 
and an exciting home victory in overtime over Reynolds in league play. The team 

ended league play with 7W -2L and entered the city 

, playoffs with high hopes. A teacher 's strike reformatted 
the playoffs to a single knockout format and 
unfortunately, a first round loss to Reynolds ended a 
promising season. Congratulations, to the boys, for 
their dedication and enthusiasm. Taylor Willms and 
David Crapo showed excellent leadership throughout 
the season. Adam Maclean gave a new meaning to 
hard work on the court. Grade 9's, Richard Ma and 
Andrew Cavin, played admirably all season.

In 2002 the golf team enjoyed its best season ever. Beginning with 
1^ the Lower Island Championship, in which the team finished third, 

we went on to a third place finish in the Police To urn anient, and then 
/ to our first ever appearance in the Island Championship, where we 
finished 7th. The season was topped off in June when the team won 
its first ever I.S.A. Golf Championship. The final event of the season was the annual Staff-Student Match in which the l.S.A. 
Champions were only able to earn a 3-3 draw with the staff. Perhaps their luck will be better nex year. To Trevor Chan and Ryan 
O 'Byrne who are graduating I would like to say well done and good luck in the fiiturf^Mor the returnins playem. Taylor Willtm,

The badminton team is a team that competes against all AA and AAA high sch 
top players from all the students in Grades 9-12. 

In league play this year, the team had a 6-1 record. At the Lower Island Tournament, the SMUS team ousted last year's champs Oak 
Bay, and won in convincing fashion, beating Claremont 9 games to 2. This qualified the team for the provincials. 

At the Provincial Tournament in Vancouver, the SMUS team appeared nervous at the start of the tournament, but settled in and 
performed very well for the remainder of the tournament. 
The games went as follows: 

6-5 Loss vs. Eric Hamber i^ 

9-2 Win vs. Kelowna ^: 

9-2 Win vs. Crawford Bay ^v 

6-5 Loss vs. J. P. Burnett 
6-5 Loss vs. Maple Ridge 
9-2 Win vs. North Delta 

The SMUS Badminton team finished a very respectable 7"' place in the province. This finish was the top on the island, second for AA 
schools, and was the best result the school has had in 6 years. 

Leading the way this year was the undefeated singles champion. Brad Jawl. In addition, the doubles play ofKristie Tyrell and Shannon 
Ko was outstanding. The twin towers of Elliot Holtham and Trevor Chan proved to be too much for most teams, while Annie Au and Massey Poon 
gave their opposition the 'Hong Kong Flu '. 

I thank each individual on the team, and I look forward to another unbelievable season next year. 





This year's tennis season was one of the most suc- 
cessful in recent memory. Tennis stirred an unprecedented 
amount of interest this year, and as a result we were fortunate 
enough to have a very large and competitive team consisting 
of players of all different abilities from grades 9 through 12. 
Under the leadership of coach Dave Kirstine, the team en- 
joyed an unb eatetf Sfe'tU ' tf/K awitf c ontinued this streak 
Vancouver Island Championships, ultimately dej, 
Shawnigan Lake in the finals to win the Island title for the j.

provincials, it was understandable that the team had high 
expectations for itself. Unfortunately, after easily passing 
through to the finals, the team met its 
match — Selkirk — and lost 6-5 in a heart- 
breaking defeat. Nonetheless, a second 
place finish remains a noteworthy ac- 
~ complishment. Brad Jawl and Andrew

ffi SOCCER ' 

This year the junior girls ' soccer team had high 
hopes, with the skills of the returning players and 
I enthusiasm right from the beginning, hi a very 
competitive league in which many teams had several 
players with Metro and club affdiations, the inexpe- 
rience of the team and injuries led to a slow start. 
The team displayed tremendous determination through- 
out the season and were the only team to score on a very 
powerful Oak Bay squad. Coaches Steve KerrandBeth 
Johnston were pleased with the effort of all players 
and were impressed by the marked improvement in 
the team 's ball control and passing.

The 2002 version of the Senior Girls Soccer Team 
began the season with great promise due to numer- 
ous returning players and an excellent goalkeeper 
in Vicky Alfred. The large number of teams in the 
league, combined with a late start to league play 
resulted in two pools being created and then a 
cross -over at the mid-sea son point into tiers "A^ 
"AA" arm "AAA^ /Ai^ a~''AA" school this~ 
vented us from having some challenging mate 
against "AAA " teams late in the season, whii 
would have proven beneficial. Our league pl< 
was strong, winning five of eight games, enablin'^ 
us to qualify for the first ever Island Tournament. 
In a back-and- forth match against Gulf Islands, 
we were defeated in the final minutes 1-0. tlius 
ending our bid to return to the Provincials. I 
commend all of the girls for their efforts this 
season and wish them much success in the future.

The 2002 senior rugby sea- \k ||y y^ ' H F . _ Y . m 
son began with much anticipation as ■ 

tlw 1st XV set its sights on claiming the provincial title. The squad competed in the BC Premier I 
competition before entering local playoffs, while the 2nd XV played in the local league as well I 
as exhibition games. The 2nd XV produced some promising rugby, recording two wins over each 
of Spectrum, Esquimalt and Claremont but going down to the Brentwood College and Oak Bay 
2ndXV's, and visiting Holy Trinity School from Ontario. To the team S credit, it ended the season 
with a fine come from behind win over West Vancouver and a one-sided victory against 
Claremont in the city semi-final. Among the many solid performers we re fullback and goal-kicker 
Liam Gorman, flyhalf Chris Dewar. hooker Paul Bregg, prop Ryman Wong, lock Conal 
Shepherd and number eight and leading try scorer Tosh Matsumura. The 1st XV season started 
well with t^vo victories overBrent\vood College. Most unfortunately, in the second of these games. 
fullback Mike Pyke. recently returned from National team duty at the U19 World Cup in Italy, 
suffered a serious hand injury that would keep him out of action for a month. This altered the 
team 's preparation for the weather delayed Boot Game against Oak Bay, played in front of 1200 
people at UVic. The tecun played well, but despite a late rally the Boot returned to Oak Bay. 
iM-elve of the squad then took part in the BC Sevens Tournament, reaching the Cup semifinals. 
The team then defeated G.P.Vanier in Premier play before inking on Oak Bay in the much 
anlicipated Alumni Dax match. After a slow stan the team bounced away to lead by 1 7 points . 
midwtt y th rough the second half but had to hold on desperately as Oak Bay fought hack to within 
three points at the final whistle. This victory guaranteed a game against Car.wn Graham from 
North Vancouver for the overall Premier title. Although the team began well. Carson Graham 
was too strcmg on the dav. winning 55-24. Next up was the Howard Russell Cup final, with the 
sea.wn series against Oak Bay, and crucial ranking position for the BCs at stake. Sdly errors 
immediatelv after halftime left the team not only playing into the elements but also 22-7 in arrears, i , 

Then in the best nassaee of play all year, the squad caught fire, scoring three spectacular tries V. , ; 

J 2:^2 wiLtufminJlesiplay. Unfortunately, three bad errors then allowed Oak Bay a penally ,oa, and more f"-^"^;^' ';;"™;:f;;:j;:^:' 
on full time. At the BC Tournament, the .^quad opened with a solid 34-0 victory over Rutland and inicked up wuh a hard-fought 36-24 quarterfinal win over St.

Zlmjurlefo^dfurigue taking a'great toll, the team went down in the bronze medal matc h the next day to Kits ilano. Carson Graham went on to beat Oak Bay . 

w the final. Despite a disappointing fourth place BC finish, the season still had its J^ 

successes. Much fine rugby was played while all involved gained many valuable I 

memories and experiences. While not wishing to take anything away from the team 

effort, .several players deserve mention. Scrumhalfand captain Dave Jawl lead from the _ __ -, — ...- 

front and was named as a non-traveling reserve for the Canada U19 team. He was ably kn. < 

supported in the backs by wings Reed Kipp and Pieter Colson (who represented the USA 

at the U19 World Cup), fullback Craig Gavin, while centre Dave Spicer was top scorer 

(10 tries, 118 points) and was named to the BC School Commissioner's XV. In the 

forwards, prop Paul Jenkins, lockJasonKo, andthebackrowofMattLyall, Chris Adair,

Yet another good year is unfolding. Again some 60+ students have been actively involved in playing 
cricket this year at SMUS. The players were given the opportunity to play in J or more of 4 different types 
of teams, namely: 1"' XI, 2'"' XI. Midweek League and Girls. Good leadership was shown in these teams 
by Andrew Murgatroyd, Stuart Jones, John Campbell, Kasim Husain, Hugh Macintosh, Nick 
Black, and Meara Crawford, who. between them, organised teams for the approxi- 
\ mately 40 games we played in the 6 weeks of "Summer". 

- J 



In general we did very well against the competition, which in the Midweek league 
is quite formidable with many players having some 20 or 30 years cricket experi- 
ence. In general, our fielding was extremely good, our bowling excellent, but 
unfortunately, perhaps, there was often insufficient depth in the batting. Neverthe- 
less, with excellent all-round ability shown by Takaya Brunner, Owen Parrot, 
Ashish Kumar, Fahad Jahangir, Colin Macintosh, Ivan Celuszak and Nader 
Ahmed, combined with the excellent wicket-keeping ofNavraj Chima, and for the 
I girls Jaimie Lai, Victoria Lai and Chelsea Phipps the next couple of years bode well. 

As usual I would like to thank Tony Cordle, Mel Jones, Donna Williams. David 
Gauthier and, in particular, Mike Walsh for all their help and assistance.

Our core team this year consisted of the Orr brothers, Andy and 
Robert, Cassidy McLean, Jason Zapantis, the Mexican connection of 
Jose Piirata and Patricio de la Garza, Mark Bridgeman and Jonathan 
Ejfa from the Middle School. Our race season consisted of three 
mountain bike challenges at the local "mecca ", the Hartland Road 
Dump, a "time trial" road race at Willis Point, and culminated with 
the BC High School Open Mountain Bike Race in North Vancouver 
on May 25. While we didn't win any races, we were an enthusiastic 
group that showed steady improvement during the campaign. Andy 
Orr is the one rider who will be graduating this year. He has proven 
himself a hard-working and very capable cyclist. Special thanks go 
to Sheila Campbell (SMUS '95) for her assistance during the 





Rain or shine (with lots of enthusiasm) the 

Senior School students set out on their grade 

^ trips at the beginning of they ear. Sea Kayaking in 

the Gulf Islands, Surf Kayaking in Tofino. mountaineering in the 

mountains, "Jionie-cooked" meals, rock climbing in Skaha, whale- 

"watching... these are just a few activities that the students had the 

opportunity to enjoy. As always, thanks to the Grade 12 leaders who 

played an invaluable role in helping oversee and organise the trips. 

After the initial burst of activity in the fall, the spring ^nd 

summer proved to be equally exciting. With the new group of 

leaders in training testing their skills, more trips were in order (sea 

kayaking, backpacking and snow-camping among ihe many 

activities available). In short, another great year in the outdoors at, 

SMUS. Thanks to everyone for your support and enthusiasm over 

the year!

The Chapel 

Chapel services at Senior School occur on Wednesdays 
and Fridays and this year, Boarders Chapel had special 
events in addition to the usual Sunday evening services: 





The Venerable Bagdro, a Buddhist monk, shared his 
experiences of imprisonment, torture and escape from a 
terrible life in Tibet. A meeting with the Dalai Lama 
resulted in the dedication of his life to World Peace. 
His visit to SMUS elicited many questions from stu- 
dents who learned that freedom of speech and freedom 
of religion' are not available in some countries and that 
to express one's thoughts/beliefs can result in imprison- 
ment or more. 

At Christmas, a candlelight "Lessons and Carols" 
service with wonderful singing by the mass choir and 
gathered community contributed to the festivity of the 
season soon to begin as students left for their break. 

Chapel Wardens, Grade 1 2 students Ivan Golian, James 
Maledy, Avalon McLean, Adam Miron and Grace 
Quinn assisted the Chaplain in the preparation of the 
Chapel for Senior School and Boarders 

services, serving with dignity, rever- 

Ience and joy as lectors, taper bearers

Amusing how rain always thundered 
On broken couples. And under shadows. 
Perhaps laughter depresses the sun. 

Not motivational on crippled Mondays, 
More cynical then I first looked, your 
Pictures still refuse to move out of the fames. 

Ever since I was blinded, I fail to see 
Reflections. Dreams should stay dreams, 
While reality should be as cruel as the last. 

Sorrow lives like us, under milestones 
Of life. Born and died at the same time. 
With senconds to spare, moments to remeber. 

I gave the last gasp, and sank like the old 
Lady sitting dead on the front porch that 
Sunday afternoon, where no one cared at all. 

So goes life as we refine the definition 
Again and again. So goes death as we 
Define the moments of weakness. 

So goes love as we weaken the strength of three words.

M. a. 

Standing Out in the Crowd 

nior citizens talk to me, 

ding they should. 
As if I am their lost grandchild, 
the one they forgot at the supermarket 
fifteen years ago. 
I never know what they want. 
Speaking of nonsense to me. 

Especially in the mall elevator going down. 
I like to help, with human kind 
Do my part. 

Though listening to anonymous perfumed prunes. 
Does not interest me. 
I say my hello, ' 
Nod my head, 
Smile and stroll away. 
Just another day of standing out in the crowd.

First Love 

Tears of silence. 

Sad echoes in your voice, 

A constant reminder of hell. 

You made me say. 

And 1 promised, 

I sealed my fate... 

You'll never see me smi 

I've walked along the fire. 

To the point of no return 

All the words I promised, were true 

But now I'll never love another like you.

Once again, dozens of students ha\ e brou|HHBBi^nd enthusiasm as well as many hours to 
helping out in the Admissions office in a numbei of w ays Our student tour guides introduce 
prospective families to the school on a diiily ba^is. Then eager and honest approach and 
commitment to SMUS make them wonderful ambassadors of the school. Our Discover SMUS 
hosts also did a wonderful job in hosting potential boarders in residence. Thanks to all the 
tour guides and Discover SMUS hosts for helping make our visitors feel welcome and 
comfortable. We have a number of students who drop in at the admissions office on a 
..regular basis to help put togetlier information packages and assist in other administrative 
tasks They are a friendly group of helpers who learn new tasks quickly and aie always 
a pleasure to have around the office! A number of other students helped ni other various 
projects undertaken by the admissions office - photos and design, powerpoint presenta- 
tions, etc. Their work is so appreciated! ! Finally, we were thrilled with the response from 
the number of sUidents who helped out at the SMUS second annual participation in the 
Victoria Festival of Trees event. This year's theme of "Youth and Peace" proved to be a 
wonderful choice and the students and staff who participated and those in the community who 
viewed the trees at the Empress Hotel enjoyed the event! This community service programme 
contributed $1500 and many gifts and toys to the BC Children's Hospital. Great work! Thanks 
to all the students who support the Admissions office in so many ways throughout the year!

Peer counselling at SMUS is made up of a keen group of students who volunteer their time to help their friends. Acquiring basic counseHing 
skills is the main order of business, backed up by learning what resources are available to people who need help with life situations. One of the 
most difficult things that peer counsellors learn is that people have to provide their own solutions to their o\\ n problems. Harassment, violence, 
suicide, depression, addictions, eating disorders, sexual issues are some of the topics that get .specific attention. The time conmiitnient for peer 
counsellors is significant, but so is the satisfaction of helping. It is a tluee-season activity . and the formal meeting times are a small part of the time 
spent. Some students have been with the group for three years and continue to learn. The concrete advantages of being a Peer Counsellor Lue varied: 
the hours can be counted toward CAPP work experience or for the service component cif the Duke of Edinbiugh program, it is a useful acti\ ity 
to have on a university resume, and the learned communication skills are attractive to employers. Besides all that it is fun. and an opportuni!\ to 
relate to other students in a very different wav. It is also fun I

Art and Squash Clubs 

The art club began this year when students expressed a desire tor 
more time to work in the art room and to try unusual projects 
together as a group. We began our first projects experimenting 
with clay and paper mache and tossed around ideas of how to 
develop a project idea wiih a\ lew to sell our work. For Halloween 
we carved the peel ol pumkins away and allowed for a variety of 
levels of light to show through. In December, students designed 
and painted their own ties with a holiday theme and created a 
beautiful group display in the library. As the year progressed, more 
projects unfolded including designing and making the stage sets for 
the musical "South Pacific" and other playful explorations in the 
world of the visual arts.

Squasli is game offiitense skill, fitness, and concentration. The SMUS squash club metevery 
Tuesday and Thur.sday at the Nautilus Sports Centre on Quadra St. and Reynolds. The club 
comprised a wide range of skill le\ el. and so everyone and anyone was welcome to drop in. 
Instruction and lessons were also offered, if desired. Some students have fun playing each other 
and developing a healthy sense of competition, whereas others take a more relaxed approach, and 
are more sociable on the court. Some even enjoy practicing squash on their own time. This year, 
squash was enjoyed thoroughly by all, so come join the fun!

[ In many ways, this has been a building year for both the Junior 

t iuid the Senior debate teams as a crop of new faces has verbally 

t jousted their w ay through a great variety of tournaments ranging 

E as far afield as Nanaimo and Vancouver. Our favorite, of course,

C to home ever\' year. There is nothing like the taste of a 

t vegetarian slice to cool the palette after some heated quibbling 

I over a tough resolution! With each tournament, we gain 

kLpenence and gallop our way closer to the winners' circle, 
ext year. GNS. watch out for the wittv' heckles of SMUS! 

Chess is an excellent activity for the mind that involves planning, 
problem solving, strategy and intuitive thinking. The SMUS chess club 
meets every Monday and Wednesday in the Science Building in room 210 
at 3:30pm and ains until 4:45pni. Chessboards and pieces are provided, and 
everyone is welcome to drop in. The current membership comprises a wide 
range of ability levels, as well as a wide range of age levels. Junior and 
Middle School students are welcome to drop in as well as Senior School 
students, and in fact some of the most regular current club members are 
Middle School students. The club provides an opportunity for students to 
play chess with other students, and chess puzzles are set up on a demonstra- 
tion board to be solved by the insightful student. Saidents add variety to the 
afternoon by playing chess variants such as Siamese Chess or chess-like 
games of their own creation, which seems to be a big hit especially among 
Middle School Students. Come join in the fun!

Arts Council is a devoted group of students consisting of at least two students from grades nine to twelve. 

These students have been selected by their peers and meet every week to discuss student life on campus and how 

I we can expand their experience and involvement in and out of school. We do this by planning activities and events 

hat will interest, motivate, and encourage students in art. music, and drama, whether it is within the school or 

intside. For instance, the council has set up trips throughout the year to watch theatre at the Belfry, to watch 

ymphony performances, and to see operas. The council is also in charge of setting up special e\ents such as the 

soon to be annual talent show. The goal of all these activities is to give students the opportunity to experience 

things that they normally would not be able to. These are a few of the things the Fine Arts Council does to 

encourage student involvement in all sorts of arts and to show the students that there is more to St. Michaels 

University School than academic. And second, expose students to something they may have not seen before.

The /Vcademic Council consists of student representatives from all grades who bring 
forward various concerns. The counciFs role is to search for solutions to these issues and 
to nnpro ve situations for the future. The council also worked on improving rapport between 
faculty and students; one way in which this was done was by creating an academic council 
e-mail address. Another project undertaken by the Academic Council was to recognize 
students who do not normally receive formal academic recognition. In the future, the 
Academic Council hopes to expand the connection between the representatives and other 
students in order to facilitate the best possible exchange of ideas. The reputation that this 
council hopes to begin to establish is one of pro-activity and enthusiasm. All its members 
meet on a regular basis and are continuously working for the benefit of the students.

Student council— the presidine student leader'sWp co""'^'' ^t the school— senses as a forum for strident concerns 
to be discussed, voiced to faculty, and ultimately acted upon. This year' s council, comprised of 1 4 dedicated student leaders 
ft-ora grades 9 through 1 2 under the superN ision of Mr. Tongue, tackled several pertinent issues such as the school dress code. 
school awards, and school social functions. It is always difficult to simply make reforms to school traditions, yet this year s 
council succeeded in makina amendmems to the school's uniform policy, and also in initiating positive change on seve- 
other fronts Though severarprojects have not yet been fully completed, hopefully next year's council will be able to p 
up where this year's left off. Thanks go out to all of student council members for demonstrating such a high level of 
commitment, and for representing their grades Sft. well.

This Spring Break 1 5 of the field hockey team hit Barba- 
dos, lead by Mr. Hunt and Wendy. Some may think we 
mainly went for the sun, sea, sand and nightlife. . . and they 
would be wrong. 

The Trip didn't exactly start off the right way. with a4- 
hour delay in Toronto, but this did not dampen the spirits 
of those in search of sun. Eventually we reached 
Bridgetown. Barbados, to sweltering heat (not helped by 
black tracksuits). 

We played our first game the next day at a "hockey 
pitch"" which mysteriously resembled a "4' s" cricket pitch 
with a set of goal posts. Sadly, due to extreme heat and 
fatigue we lost our first game to the Barbados All Star 
Juniors. Tlie run of bad luck didn't end until our third 
game, which was a convincLng 4-0 witi. OvenOL our 
hockey playing was superb, merely caught off guard by 
heat, fatigue, strange potholes and funny humps. 

In our free time the team spent many tiring hours

Mr&Mrs. Jackson 's Barnacle Bulldogs were a force to bt 
reckoned with this year. First things first, we did whoop oi 
Bolton in basketball, for all of you who thought it was i 
rumour, it wasn 't. The blend of people this year was a strong 
one - with such superbulldogs as Kevin and Sunhyung'. 
genius (wow), Tom Taylor's Skateboarding extravaganct 
(watch out for landings!), and Hafeez taking care of tin 
ladies, who wouldn't agree. The ruffians this year can b( 
summed up in a single name, Manville, a one man gang 
totally devoted to creating unrest and playful disturbance 
' but I must say he added a great amount of excitement to thi 
house. Late night activities were put somewhat to an end dm 
to the great affection of our houseparentsfor the video cameras, yet maybe one or two or thirty slipped away unnoticed, or maybi 
they thought they got away, all I can say is paper and tape, paper and tape!! Once again this year we let Winslow thmk, key worH 
THINK they were in charge, but we know who really rules the BARAVIN scene! As head of house I couldn 't have been a part c 
a better group of prefects, Sam, Tim, Brian, Stephen, Jinwoo(Asst. Head), Jim, Agung the third, and assisted by Jeff were all to, 
form The hard work that the prefects put in to the house can only be known by those who have done it. Helping the younger boys 
house duties, and contributing in everyway possible is all part of the prefects 'job, and with some ups and downs they did a grea 
job and more than once covered for me while I was away. Barnacle nights out were spent at the Max, ice cream parlour, thi 
Keg laser tag, Japanese Village, and other venues. The main men of the house big man SHA YE, rock star FRANKLIN, and twinkl 
toes ISON were indisputably the best houseparents ever, keeping us out of trouble and helping us to achieve everything we coulc 
I speak for everyone when we give them a huge thank you. Well, as this year of the bulldog closes, it won't be without grea 
memories - huge feasts, and happy smiles, and the friendships made should last for a long time. Thanks to our Houseparenti 
Mr&Mrs. Jackson who have completed another successful year in Barnacle, thanks for your guidance, good humour, and food 

-Pieter Colson, Head of Barnacle Houst 






We began this year looking to continue our dominance ofth^ 
house competitions, but a limited schedule has left it i 
doubt to this point. The beginning of the year prove 
challenging due to the lack of prefects and Trevor Char 
arriving several days late, leaving the ship to be run by 
Callendar and the four other prefects. The early addition oj 
Adam "BEAR " Miron, contributed to the spirituality and 
. video collection of the house. Bear was an excellent replace- 

# W ^ Up C 4^ I mentfor Brian "Dexter" Kuhn despite his many traumatic 

experiences in the infirmary. The house also welcomed many 
new faces including a bumper crop of immigrants from the 
Mexican border and unnaturally tall basketball players. 
Despite defying sleep and spending most of his time with "Homo, " Boone managed to fit in time to "work out" with "Speedo " 
and run the school newspaper. The house also received another member from the beaver family. Henry "I don 't know " Cheung 
united with his older and wiser brother Alex to terrorize third floor. After the heart-breaking split between Mike Hu and Whitey. 
Miles took over as Mike 's new roommate leaving the room vacant on frequent visits to Queen 's University. Meanwhile. "Whitey " 
teamed up with fellow basketball player Chris Ufford. Certain members of the house migrated over to Tinimis House, occasionally 
returning for a friendly visit. The house was also well represented by Saudis of first floor. Winfield "Limpie" Lau, a fellow first 
floor bud unfortunately cracked his cranium during an extreme snowboarding excursion, but thankfully has recovered fully. Mr. 
Common proved to be more than up to the task of assistant House Parent with his late night espionage and musical ensembles. 
Many Congrats to Mr. Bat man on his new role as the school 's art teacher. Mr..... ham, your Starbuck runs are very appreciated 
and be prepared forfuture tests of house member's names. A final thankyou to the Cameron 's for being outstanding house parents 
throughout all ten years that a Callendar has been in the house. The house is much indebted to you for your warmth and patience. 
Best of luck to all future Bolton Buds. -Trevor Chan & Jamie Callendar, Heads of Bolton House 



Harvey House had another outstanding year. Without the 
seemingly parental guidance provided by the Cooks and Mi 
Walsh we would of had no foundation from which to grow 
We welcomed the year with seven prefects: Akinori, Peter, 
Kyung-Min, Steve, Hansi, Martin and myself. For the othei 
32 boys living in Harvey House cleanliness was obvious!) 
an option which many cared not to partake in. I believe the 
boys cleaned their rooms a collective 8 times over the course 
of the year, myself included. House games was (to a fen 
students) sometimes referred to as "nap-time ", but a strong 
effort was put forth at house games where we consistently 
played well. However, this so called "nap-time " was generally the only sleep harvey boys had, since our main nocturnal pastimt 
was prowling the halls and ordering pizza at 2AM in the morning. Ready tofdl the departing grade 12 's shoes, the grade Us 
are working on their leadership skills and I think it 's safe to say that I leave the house in good hands to the elite few who can become 
harvey house prefects. Spirit is something that thrives in Harvey House because we are all like one big happy family. We were 
sad to see the departure ofgrade.8 advisor Steven MacDonald, who left mid-way through the year, only for a James Tesarro to 
assume the position. Thanks to the house parents Mr. and Mrs. Cook, Mr. Walsh, Andrew Field and Elliot Anderson for a 
wonderful year. -Ivan Golian, Head of Harvey House 





Welcome to Syinoiis house radio news, live from Symons 
foyer. We are your hosts, Alex and Yori assisted by all the 
Symons prefects. Overall, the year went by well with a 
minimum amount of gatings, Friday night preps and work 
parties. This is especially impressive considering the flex- 
ible interpretations of curfew and lights-out that prevailed 
for most of the year. As for the sports highlights of the year: 
housegames began with a marvellous victory and culmi- 
nated in a tug of war triumph. However, we will not mention 
what happened between these two events. For a change, 
Symons was actually acknowledged as a somewhat sporty 
house. Evidence leading to this would be the frequent spotting of shoes and shin guards left to air out, either in the halls or hanging 
out of windows. Academically speaking, our girls did surprisingly well. Considering that during prep many of them where caught 
with a phone-shaped tumour attached to their heads or were at least chatting on msn or icq. Despite this, the house did well 
academically with an average IQ of at least two times that of Harvey house. For Entertainment news, relationships and boys were 
a big part for most of the Symons girls this year. The house did well romantically, despite the Harvey boys ne.xt door (except for 
Minjung and Richard, Yuko and Kyung Min, and Fellenz who developed a following of grade 10 's). Warning: stay off the couches. 
One event that provided laughter for many people was the incessant roaring that went on between Miranda and Clarissa 
throughout the year. Now onwards with news in Health: Everybody knows that you gain weight when you enter boarding life. The 
cause of this is evidently BH or the weekly baked goods provided by Mrs. Forbes. Or was it the prefects who organised the different 
food nights, including Thai snacks, Nacho night, and bake night. Our weekly squeaky cleans soon turned into biweekly, even 
monthly squeaky cleans. Throughout the year, new species of bacteria were found dwelling somewhere in Clare House r 's room. 
To top it off, we would like to thank all the House Parents, Mrs. Forbes, Mrs. Farrish, Mrs. Ford, and Ms. Parker, for making 
this year successful and enjoyable. The prefects of the house, Chelsea, Chantal, Keldi, and Yuko, greatly added to this success. 
Symons girls, you are all great! Wait a minute: News, just in... there seems to be two, no wait, three brand new species of bacteria 
dwelling somewhere amongst Clare Hauser's room. We tried to record everything that happened, but could not keep track of all 
the occurrences. -Alex Lea and Yori Hagi, Heads of Symons House 



You have to pay price to live in the best house on campus. 
Walking to and from classes everyday to the far off home in 
the back corner isn 't easy, but there is no complaining; I 
mean we do, and will continue to DOMINATE house games. 
The view out of our big windows is incredible, and we 're not 
talking the sunset we 're talking the box seats we have to the 
guys rugby fields. ..Speaking of guys, I'm sure if you asked 
cmy Timmis girl they would have countless "wondeiful" 
things to say about the Bolten Buds next door. HMC, more 
formerly known as Mr. Ed. has managed to find his way up 
stairs to visit Ms. Shergold on numerous occasions, Speedo, 
should we even count the casual walk-ins during the wee hours of the morning. And not to mention having wet T-shirt contests 
with water balloons 24-7. That pretty much sums up the great memories we will always cherish of the Buds. Thcmksfor the good 
times boys, don't forget what comes around goes around: }.. . What ever happened to the penguin anyway? However, having Bolton 
next door did have its up sides. The Camerons ' always treated us as their own providing the goodies and making sure we were 
up to speed with our languages. Not to say we weren 't provided with treats from our own house parents. The delicious Wednesday 
nights, Timmis house parents spend all day cooking up a storm just for our luxury of spending family time together. Our favorite 
chef Wendy was a newcomer to our house this year, as was the cheerful spirits of Jasmin; both newbies defmitely filled the shoes 
of our long lost Ms.Hannan and Ms. Walinga. Joining the crew with the returning of J ana and Ms. Hyde -Lay, all 4 together made 
the perfect team. Thanks, you made a difference. Now to the girls. Considering the chat queen and the English exchange student 
did have the highest priced seats in the house, they didn 't seem to pay much attention to the hotties down below because the ball 
was already rolling in Grace 's love life and Candace was just too preoccupied in her overwhelming studies. On the second floor 
you willfmd Clarence with her nose in the books and then there is Katherine, who didn 7 seem to mind the Bolten Boys all that 
much. Finally in the front, there is the stress free Kathie always smiling while Angel, on the other hand, loves observing her roomie 
watch movies while she spends quality time with Hebden. Being co-heads in Timmis this year left us with amazing memories we 
will always cherish. Thanks for the fun time girls and good luck next year.

Winslow House has survived yet another year filled with | 
crazy girls and wonderful memories. On behalf of the whole 
house, we would like to thank the Tweedies, Nicole, Becky, 
and Alice for their endless support and putting up with our 
countless shenanigans. We enjoyed many house activities 
during the year and will always remember the Christmas 
dinner at the Empress, go-karting, the pottery and craft 
evenings, the final pool party and dinner at Milestones. We 
also welcomed the new gr. 8 's this year with the help ofTara- 
Lynn. Mr. and Mrs. Tweedie, we'll always remember Santa 
' Claus,(We 've never been more scared), the 20 extra pounds 
put on due to your delicious dessert nights and charades (we 'II pronounce it your way!}. Nicole, your energy has made our house 
lively and exciting. Becky you 're crazy just like us; we 'II always love you! Alice, congratulations! You survived your first year 
with Winslow, and we SWEAR we did not mean to leave you at the bowling ally; we blame it on Barnacle. Ann and Lavinia, what 
will you do next year without each other? Chaka will miss you guys! Cait and Cleare, too bad there 's no room for that telephone 
booth. Aly and Gretta, raise the roof Dalyce, Robin, Zoe, Corryn, and Clare, (hardcore athletes!) your rowdy wrestling was 
always entertaining. Don 't be deceived by the Somlai beauties, they are trouble! Pui, our closets have space if you need it. Kendall 
and Becky, what a dynamic duo! House games would be lost without Gene, and so would the mail. Adrianne the masseuse, you 
should get paid by the hour. Celia, so glad you came. Susanna, thanks for always being there during those chocolate emergencies. 
I (Grace) will remember being mocked for months about my horrific face expression in the newspaper rowing photo, and being 
sabotaged by the Barnacle hoodlums with shaving cream in the middle of the night. (Don 't think the fight 's over yet boys. ) I (Jennie) 
will remember my hair catching on fire at the Empress Hotel - that was pretty embarrassing! Thanks to Alice Liu for the fire alarm. 
From us, and the rest of the prefects; you girls rock! Good luck and take care of the house next year. WINSLOW FOREVER. 

-Grace Pellew-Harvey & Jennie Tsai, Heads of Winslow House

Mrs. Humphries' long and distinguished career 

at SMUS has been marked by her participation 

in the direction of many school musicals, her 

dedicated instruction of choir class after choir 

class, and her tireless encouragement of her 

students to reach their full potential. The school 

and its population have benefitted tremendously 

from her musical prowess and unwavering 

dedication, and she will be sorely missed as she 

tours Europe over the next year. Many thanks 

for the wonderful experiences and all the best in

Barbara Leonard, originally from the Midlands of 
England, came to SMUS in 1982 after working for 
several years in an insane asylum and as a nurse in 
the British Armed Forces stationed in Hong Kong. 
Hired as a temporary part-time replacement for the 
head nurse, who was leaving the schooL Mrs. 
Leonard's "temporary" assignment soon turned into 
a full-time indefinite tour of duty, often involving 
24-hour-long shifts. In addition to her nursing 
duties, she w as the houseparent of the now-defunct 
Har\ ey House for several yeais, and acted as a 
counsellor, friend, and "granny figure" for the 
young students under her supervision. Seeing the 
children in her care grow up and become \oung 
adults has been one of the most satisfying aspects 
of her career, and although she has recently scaled 
back her contribution to part-time weekend work 
rather than full-time, she will thoroughly miss the 
school, its students, and its faculty. Her retirement 
this year, after 20 years of faithful service to the 
school, coincides with the graduation of her grand- 
daughter. Chantal.
