I he production ol a ycaralterbook is as intricate as it is
confusing: photographs go missing, people go missing,
writcups go missing, concepts go missing . . . why, once the
entire yearafterbook was missing for four days! But, my
friends, we found it and pass this joyous news on to you: do
not let the yearafterbook become an obsession! It is an
ideal and should be regarded as such. It is meant to be
smiled upon; theretbre, my friends, smile upon it!
It is true that some photographs in this book are not as they
appear to be but "nothing is but what it appears to be"!
There are more photographs in this annual than in any that
has come before it because there are many, many people in
the school (less, even, that there are in the whole IVlount
Douglas). Changes have been made and not made . . . but
you see what you see. Treat this book not with contempt
and anger but with forgiveness: if you become enraged at it
and its creators then it will become enraged with you;
therefore, my friends, smile upon it!

(Actually, we want you for the yearbook too. but I suppose the
joining of a yearbook staff is a responsibility which requires a great
deal of thought and should not be taken too lightly)
The School Year 1984-85 marks the school's 79th year of
existence and my eighth year as Headmaster. In terms of
cups, trophies and honours won in rugby, soccer, basketball,
cricket, badminton, tennis, volleyball, track and field, cross-
country and field hockey, this year almost certainly ranks as
the finest the school has ever seen. In music, art, drama and
debating, this year has also been a vintage year: I think of the
"West Side Story" production at the McPherson Playhouse;
the German Play, the French Play, the one-act plays; the full-
length musical put on by the Junior School; other musical
performances by choral and instrumental groups, as well as
the memorable solo performances given in Chapel.
Academically, SMU this year retained its pre-eminent
position among schools in B.C. and across Canada, ranking
again as top overall in University of Waterloo and University
of Windsor maths contests. This was the year that Bryan Feir
ranked first among Grade 1 1 students in B.C. in physics and
among the top fifty of 500,000 competitors from thirty-seven
countries in the MAA international maths contest. It was a
year in which Junior and Senior students e.xcelled in essay
contests and in which Gosta Struve-Dencher won the Vancouver Island, the B.C. Independent Schools, and the
B.C. Provincial Debating Contests. It was this year that Ken Oppel's book was published internationally. This
was also the first year that Japanese has been introduced in to the school, in Grades 1, 2, 3, thanks to Mr.
Richard Bonnycastle of Calgary and the support of Mr. Masuda of Yokohama, Japan. This was also, let it be
noted, the year when the Board of Governors, under the Championship of Ian Jessiman, cleared the way for
girls to enter SMU beginning in Grade 1. But apart from all the honours and accolades won by SMU pupils, and
especially by members of the 1985 graduating class, there is something far more important to be said. This year's
graduating class was not only multi-talented but it was also exceptionally mature, responsible and caring. It set
an example for all the members of the school to try to match or, if they can, to excel in their final year. To the
two School Captains, Gareth Rees and Shannon Hill, and to the Head Boy, Steven Kasapi, my congratulations
on an outstanding year. And to all the members of a fine graduating class, warmest good wishes for the future.
We're all of us at SMU sorry to see you leave.
Board of Governors
TO THE GRADUATING CLASS
1 was genuinely pleased to be asked to contribute a few short
words of congratulations to each of you on successful
completion of your formal education.
It is a time for each of you to be proud of yourself, proud of
your accomplishments, proud of bringing yourself in such
fine fashion to this most significant juncture in your life.
1 know that you consider it a great privilege to have attended
a school which is internationally recognized as in the
forefront on those leading educational institutions designed
to equip a student with the strength needed to withstand the
triumphs and despairs of life.
The days that lie ahead will provide you with the opportunity
to use the knowledge and skills so lovingly instilled in you by
your home and this school.
As a favorite philosopher of mine, Spinoza, said: "To be
what we are, and to become what we are capable of
becoming, is the only end of life."
You are leaving here to either work or continue your
education, both extremely high goals; and you each have the privilege of pursuing either in an incredibly great
country, Canada. To live here is almost guarantee enough of a splendid future.
But it takes hard work to become fulfilled and happy. There is no short cut.
There are no limits to how far you can go, only those imposed by your own mind.
Winston Churchill said it all when commenting to a graduation class: "Never give in, never give in, never, never,
never — in nothing great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good
Life passes so quickly. As a sage said recently: "Days run on until they run out."
You will not be given too many more days within which to choose your life's vocation. Ponder it well. Don't
bounce around in too many ill or nil connected disciplines. Decide on something and pursue it with both
vengeance and excellence.
Remember that every mountain has at least two valleys. You can't expect to avoid the troughs. They are what
make the peaks so enjoyable!
1 wish to congratulate each of you on your graduating from St. Michaels University School. May God bless your
future with good health, joy, happiness, prosperity and understanding.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all those present today - teachers, parents, honorable
guests and fellow students. When 1 left my home m Regina, Sask., 3 years ago to come to St.
Michaels University School, I was a very young girl filled with high hopes and great ex-
pectations. And now as I stand here before you today with a very full heart 1 want to tell you
that all my dreams have been fulfilled. Dreams come true for a variety of reasons: An Olympic
athlete might tell you it's because of discipline, a business man might tell you it's because of
tenacity, a mother might tell you it's because of patience - a school headmaster might tell you
it's because of love. When I first met Mr. Schaffter I realized that he really cares about
educating the whole person, and his school is a model of this principle. If I remember correctly,
he told me that he believed in my potential to be a great person. .Mr. Schaffter has never
stopped believing in me and I know that he believes in the unique potential of every student in
the school. Mr. Schaffter is a man who makes us believe in ourselves. .And so, my Headmaster
has definitely played a role in the fulfillment of my dreams, here at SMU, the close unit of
friend I have made - the family I've been a part of, I realize that 1 have gained much more than
a graduation certificate. There is more to education than trigonometry and chemical equations,
for as important as these may be, it is one's own learning experiences that contribute to the
overall development of the individual. SMU has provided for us this important educational
balance. The many activities that we, the Grade I2's have engaged in - The Spring Fair, Staff
impersonation day, our venture to Salt Spring Island on Skip Day have brought us closer together as a graduating class. We have discovered
qualities about ourselves and about each other. Now, with a tear in our eyes and a memory in our hearts, we must go our separate ways. Yet,
in our parting we know that we have acquired a greater understanding of friendship and compassion. As for our teachers, they certainly
deserve congratulations on a job well done - you've turned out another class of SUPER students! Your continual encouragement and
guidance have given us the confidence to strive for better things. 1 would especially like to thank my parents who have always told me,
"Absolutely nothing is impossible". One rainy day last March when I was feeling a bit discouraged, I received a letter from my mother. My
mother is a mind-reader - she knew I needed a little inspiration and I would like to share with vou, part of that letter. It is from Dag Ham-
mershold's book, "Markings", - I AM OF THE OPINION THAT MY LIFE BELONGS TO THE WHOLE COMMUNITY - AND AS
LONG AS i LIVE, IT IS MY PRIVILEGE TO DO FOR IT WHATEVER I CAN. I WANT TO BE THOROUGHLY USED UP WHEN I
DIE, FOR THE HARDER I WORK, THE MORE I LIVE. I REJOICE IN LIFE FOR ITS OWN SAKE. LIFE IS NO "BRIEF CANDLE"
TO ME: IT IS A SORT OF SPLENDID TORCH WHICH I HAVE GOT HOLD OF FOR THE MOMENT - AND 1 WANT TO MAKE IT
BURN AS BRIGHTLY AS POSSIBLE BEFORE HANDING IT ON FUTURE GENERATIONS. To my fellow graduates, I wish you the
best in vour future endeavours - and may all your torches burn brightly.
Gareth Rees, School Captain
Mr. Guest Speaker, Mr. Headmaster, Ladies and Gentlemen, Graduates and students. As I
complete 12 years of schooling I realize that I have met many many people. I have even en-
countered myself. During my five years at SMU I have been encouraged to pursue e.xcellence -
and I can only hope that, along with my fellow graduates, we have made an honest effort to
follow that advice. In respect of excellence, 1 was recently invited to read a book entitled:
"Memories and Miseries of a Schoolmaster" written by Stephen Leacock. A quotation that
appealed to me and hopefully is appropriate for the Grads todav, reads as follows: "IF
EVERY DAY IN THE LIFE OF A SCHOOL COULD BE THE LaST DAY BUT ONE -
THERE WOULD BE LITTLE FAULT TO FIND WITH IT." We are delicately balanced with
just a few days to go, but as students it would be honest to say that we too can find little fault in
our school - SMU has been generous to us. Our gratitude then extends to many groups - to the
SMU student body - to the staff - to our scholarship donors - and perhaps, most of all, to our
parents. At times it is difficult for us to appreciate and therefore understand our parents, but
with the unsolicited permission of Oscar Wilde, I would like to paraphrase, his thoughts: "IF
PARENTS WEREN'T THERE WHEN YOU GOT HOME AFTER SCHOOL, YOU
WOULDN'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE YOUR DINNER - AND YOU WOULDN'T FEEL
LIKE EATING IT ANYWAY". To all those that have helped us along the way we thank you
for giving us your bones and allowing us to cut our teeth upon them. Saturday 1 5th of June,
1985 marks the end of our time at school, and the day and date will be of special significance in our lives. The years that have passed will hold
many memories. Memory is perhaps the most delicate and frail of all the powers of the mind - but I can only hope that certain events during
my time at SMU will remain indelible. 1 will not forget the CREATIVITY shown by one of my class in having a hook published. The
ORIGINALITY of seeing a waving gorilla on the roof of the Gym on our SKIP DAY. The COMMADERIE experienced when I was part of
the rugby tour group of 50 boys that travelled to the South Pacific. The ABSURDITY of 90 NERDS parading into morning chapel. The
ARTISTRY that was in evidence in WEST SIDE STORY, and of course the now infamous HISTERIONICS of our senior basketball coach.
Staff and parents are often bemused by these affectations and antics - but. in our youth we are merely trying on one face after another, until
we find one, that fits. It really is as much as we can do for you the older generation - to shock you and keep you up to date. On a more serious
note, I want to add that we are aware that BOTH parents and teachers hold the reins of power, and again we are grateful that you have
chosen to bear that responsibility. Technically, we graduate today, which qualifies us to pursue our interests in the future. Up to this point I
have avoided using the word education, because what we have received at SMU is maybe not an education, but a means to an education. It
would be false for me to state that all the Grads have clearly defined goals, we don't, many of us are still searching. But I think the common
denominator within us, is that we are interested in the future, because we are going to spend the rest of our lives there and we can never plan
the future by the past. It would be presumptuous of us, the senior class, to try and assess our contribution to SMU, because we can only
judge ourselves bv what we are capable of doing. Others iust judge us bv what we have already done; we hope that the legacv, whatever that
may be is perceived as having been productive. \Vc will continue to search lor the POT OF GOLD AT THE tND OF THE RAINBOW for
searching is much belter than actually finding it. It may also prevent us from stagnating and being unprofitable. Our school has become
more INTERN.'XTIONAL in its outlook these last few years and 1 think il appropriate to conclude with the words of a song, written by a
group of inspirational and concerned American musicians, 1 refer to the USA for Africa RELIEF FUND GROUP; with your indulgence, I
will direct mv last words to the Grad class of 1985. "WE ARE THE WORLD, WE ARE THE CHILDREN, WE ARE THE ONES THAT
CAN MAKE A BRIGHTER DAY, SO LET'S START GIVING". Thankyou.
Steven Kasapi, Head Boy
Ladies and Gentlemen, Honored Guests, Headmaster, Staff, and Fellow Students,
Minasama, yokoso, watakushitachino gakkoe. That's Japanese for welcome to our school
which isn't really appropriate but at least now 1 have your attention.
Having finished our secondary education, many of us in the Grad class ha^'e great dreams,
visions of what our lives will be like, whether we want to change the world or just remain
independent and in control of our own fate. The Russians have a very realistic view of what the
rest of our lives will be like. Dreams will possibly motivate us to work with incredible intensity
for a few years. Between the ages of about 17 to 27 we will have the drive to perform some
remarkable feats, making our dreams more and more realistic. It is an exciting time. But then
we grow older and at about the age of 30 we notice that something has gone wrong. We look
hack at the dreams we had when we were seventeen and say to ourselves: "Well, my dream is
But the Russians have another saying:
"kasy kasa paka raka"
which translates as something like: "cut with the scythe until the dew comes", or as I think we
might say in English: "there's a time for everything".
The French 20th century poet, Jean-Paul de Dadelsen, is almost as sobering. In his poem Le
Grand Lnre, The Great Book, he writes:
II est bon qu'apres la pluie vienne le deluge: il est excellent
Qu'un tiens fasse sortir deux loups du bois: il est necessaire
Que pour ne pas aller assez souvent a la fontaine La cruche soit cassee.
It is a good thing that the rain is followed by flood. It is excellent
That a bird in hands calls forth two wolv es from the woods.
It is necessary that the jar should break, so it won't have to go the well anymore.
In a school such as St. Michael's what we have learned stands out strongly, but St. Michaels has done more than just educate us: it has
changed us and our motivations. In an address to the Progressive Education Association on November 23, 1934, Albert Einstein said:
behind every achievement exists the motivation which is its foundation and which in turn is strengthened and nourished by the ac-
complishment of the undertaking. Here there are the greatest differences and they are of the greatest importance to the educational value of
the school. The same work may owe its origin to fear and compulsion, ambitious desire for authority and distinction, or loving interest in the
object and a desire for truth and understanding, and thus to that divine curiosity which every healthy child possesses, but which so often is
weakened early. The educational influence w hich is exercised upon the pupil by the accomplishment of one and the same work may be widely
different, depending upon whether tear of hurt, egotistic passion, or desire for pleasure and satisfaction is at the bottom of this work. And
nobody will maintain that the administration of the school and the attitude of the teachers do not have an inlluence upon the molding of the
psychological foundation for its pupils.
So, school should do more than educate us: it should help to form our motives. We've been very fortunate to have a community at SMU
which has potential to form sincere motives. On behalf of the graduating class I would very much like to thank Mr. Schaffter, the staff, the
board of governers, the parents, friends of the school, and of course the students for trying to provide examples, and thus an enx ironment,
which leads to healthy motivations.
But we've had, on the whole, a pleasant time. I'd like to end on an optomistic note bv quoting Goethe's poem ERINNERUNG, or
Willst du immer weiter schweifen?
Sieh, das Gute liegt so nah.
Lerne nur das Gluck erreifen,
Denn das Gluck ist immer da.
Do you want to wander further and further?
Look, good things are so close.
Just learn to obtain happiness.
Because there is always happiness.
As the Russians sometimes say on parting:
"Noo, paka." Although it doesn't mean the same thing, in English I'll just say: "It's been a

Alan, one of the last survivors from Port Townsend, caine to SMU four years ago. He has had the
reputation of being the neatest prefect in School House history as well as being the Blue Pumpkin
to the kids. He was also the captain of Wenman House. However, Alan's greatest contribution has
been in the music department. Since his 'hidden talent' was discovered last year, Alan has joined
every music group possible. He was a member of ihe SMU Singers, Vocal Jazz (scoobywah - heh
heh!). Festival Singers and Ihe section leader for the basses. He is best known as the member of the
vocal quartet with the big eyebrows. Everyone will remember Alan's performances in the lead
roles. Perchik(I used to tell myself. . .) in Fiddler on the Roof and Bernardo (the sharks are gonna
have their way ■ tonight!) in West Side Slory. Alan also plays the trombone in the orchestra, the
stage band and the symphonic winds. Forrest is best known to his friends as our piano man and the
biggest Elton John fan in the world. Poppa Gym will remember all the Gym Family adventures,
"icy cold" nights with little brother, fun with Dev., jumping out of planes, having bubblegum put
in his navel, and cross-country meets. Thanks from all of us and keep in touch.
A native of Victoria, the Bad Dad (Scam Man, Stud, etc . . .), a five year veteran, liked S.M.U. so
much he came back for another year. During his school career, Blair established himself on the
rugby field (1st ,\V) for pulling off major scams and living to tell about it, and as a star of stage
and screen. As the Pirate King in Pirates of Penzance and for his intellectual comments in CHEK
TV's "Richochet", Blair will not be forgotten. Despite his successes Blair never gave autographs
but asked for them (namely Shelly's). Blair was one of the few people who was always ready to
have a good time. His attempts to reach 21 were admirable, but he always passed out before
reaching his goal. A member of the tour 'Down Under', Blair played well on and off the field
(though notably better off it). Blair will remember S.M.U. for the rugby, the dances, the parties,
and getting busted by Mr. Jones in Chem. After grad, Blair plans to attend an eastern University
and study Medicine. Final Comment: "Chuck that man a beer!"
"1 just thought of something!". Veryan, the youngest member of the SMU grad '85, is a native of
Victoria who arrived late following a one year stay in Spain. The one year she spent at SMU was
enough for her to infest the school with lha( giggle (for which, incidentally, she does not want to
be remembered). Her other achievements include passing Calculus, not dropping Chem and
writing more on other people than in her notebook in Geography. When Veryan leaves SMU to
study engineering at UVIC and later at McGill (Veryan? an engineer?), she will doubtlessly bear
fond memories of bio-feed back dots, various illegal places, and stupid soaps. She also claims she
will remember shrimps, although none of us (including the crustacian involved) know what she is
talking about. If she does succeed in becoming a "robot maker" (her choice of terminology
retJects the probability of this event); she will surely be seen driving a baby-blue Honda around
Palma. If not, she plans to marry a Spanish fisherman and live in a shack overlooking the
Mediterranean, (she would marry a farmer, but everyone knows thai farming ended in the 20's!).
Either way, Veryan, best of luck, and keep giggling!
Roger, an eight-year veteran of SMU, began his stini as a valuable hockey jock, soon to become
the 'assistant Hockey Prefect' in Grade 7. Since then, he has excelled in his athletic endeavors,
achieving Isl and 2nd .XV status as well as being an active participant of the cross-country, soccer,
and track teams. Roger's love of sports was superceded only by his devotion to the performing
arts. Rog will remember soccer-sainthood. West Side Story, Thursday evening coffee, cardS and
Probs. & Stats, with Mr. Kayal. His pet peeves include 'people who love pain' (rugby forwards)
and half-lime end changes. Rog will further his education at UVic, hoping to find his career as a
UVic Phys. Ed. coach, and asks that Ihe #11 position be retired from all future sports in SMU.
Best of luck, Rog!
riiis lotgiving and cool-headed young man, who hails from South Oak Bay, has spent the last four
memorable years at SMU. Colin's rugby career as scrum half of the I si XV was where his cool
head and calm temper canie into use. When Colin gladly entered the school in grade 9, with that
other guy that looks just like him, he did not expect to have to risk his life on an old cod boat (aka
"Robertson H"), or ha\e to prove super-human strength by rowing dead weight I-C'B's upstream
at Camp I hunderbird. Who can forget Colin's aquatic exploits on the second floor of Harvey
House? When Colin could break from his tight study schedule, he would venture to Sambo's for a
quiel cup of coffee, but half the fun was escape from SMU routine and certain wastes of oxygen.
We must not forget Colin's two years of service on the Student Council, where he was cheerful and
never argumentative. All of us remember Colin's stimulating and educational Thursday afternoon
field trips. We must not forget his love for boating, especially in thirteen foot whalers in Roche
Harbour. Colin's time at SMU has prepared him well for the pursuit of business at the University
of Western Ontario, which he hopes will lead to a lucrative career in the business world.
This founding member and president of the H.M.W.H.C. should be known for never having
survived a day at SMU without coffee at Sainbo's. He has, however, managed to be accepted at
U.B.C. where he plans to go into the diplomatic field. No doubt he will succeed after all his
practice at SMU getting himself out of trouble and casting the blame on someone else. When he
was not practicing his diplomatic skills he was creating reasons to use them. Memories include
construction sites, midnite dips, leaving his mark on Saltspring and scaring unsuspecting
hitchhikers. "I do not see any teethmarkson the fan belt Mom!" Like a true alderkid, Neil utilized
his ability to appear innocent with Ross, Barb and Shannon and the Golf Club beach caused him
difficulty. Neil tried hard to become as unathlclic and unhealthy as possible but he still managed to
earn his highest average in rugby winning 5.'i out of 56 games for SMU and participating in soccer,
track and gymnastics. Most likely Neil will be remembered for having original excuses "But dad, I
had a sock on" and "It's okay I was only with Annie". Aimed with his alumni card from the
SOBS and Los Tres Caballeros, Neil will no doubt have a great lime coniving his way through life.
Entering the parking lot at Featherstonian light-speeds in a very previously-owned mustard-yellow
Datsun ("gold"? Get out of town!), his hair still containing trace elements of Vidal Sassoon, his
inveterate accomplice at his side, Marcus arrives. And just in time for tutorial with Mr.
Featherstone himself, dna eht gninrom stnemecnuonna, and a dose of Machiavellian pragmatism.
Having attended SMU for five years, Marcus' amiability, quiet congeniality, and incredible
contribution to the Grade 9 math contest team were recognized with a prefectship, and he became
one of the privileged few to collect meal tickets and supervise early prep. After demonstrating his
athletic proficiency on the rugby field in Grades 9 and 10 (we know there's a head-banger cassette
hidden somewhere in that car), Marcus continued to exhibit curricular jockularity on the Cross-
country Team, showing up for a lot of meets and finishing every race (applause). Marcus will be
remembered for his unique contortionist abilities, handstands in Mexican hotels, his perspicuous
answers to German questions and intrepidity in the face of Mrs. T., and his bizarre appearances in
dreams (Freudian). Marcus plans to "travel the world, go hand gliding, make money and be
happy". He will.
A student since grade 8 (!) and spent this last year "boarding" with his twin brother Marcus. He
spent the better part of the year committee-hunting and managed a spot in the typing section of the
yearbook staff. Although lie doesn't list typing along with "He-man" as his games options. Mike
was also this years Mexico-trip veteran and lists the trip and Aarrynne as things he'll remember
about the school. But we'll also remember him for coming to school dressed as a zuchinni (?), his
dominating voice in French class, and his near-perfect always-late record to Wednesday morning
Spanish. Activity-wise, Mike will be remembered for diving into a rock during grade 1 1 outdoors
week, for starting conversations at parties and for dancing "Careless Whisper" with "Ruby".
Mike lists one term in grade 8 top English and getting a B in one term of grade 12 Bio as proud
academic accomplishments (just kidding!). Although it sounds like it, Mike's life at SMU hasn't
always been fun and games. He did work hard academically and was offered early admission to
U.B.C. where he'll get down to some "real" studing(?).
"Bugs", an immigrant from Sooke, came to SMU in grade 6. He has had a fine athletic career,
including first XV Rugby, first XI soccer, track and field, and swimming. Bugs was on the '84
SMU Rugby Tour, and enjoyed various excitements while on tour. He'll certainly remember being
bored by J.C. at Vella Park and wanting to go to Calgary. (Unfortunately they missed out.) As far
as academics are concerned, Bryan was very helpful to his fellow students, helping Pam with
Chem & Phys. at 11 p.m. the night before the biggie test. Then there was the fun side of 'Bugs'.
Bry was unique for his shotgunning before sports day (a sudden flashback to grade 10), his desire
for a "friend" after a "couple" and his ability to always find a hospitable family to feed him.
Bryan also learnt to drive in his senior years. He and his grampa's Brat saw many adventures,
including a lassoed mirror, 15 wet boys, and a ride in a ditch. Bryan (unlike his brother) has
graduated from SMU with warm memories. He will continue his career at either UBC or Queens.
Thanks for being our friend.
This fun-loving socialite from Sail Spring Isl. has certainly made the most of her three years at
SMU. Besides being a Harvey House prefect and Chapel Warden, Barbara was also an active
participant of the SMU musical dptmt: West Side Story will remember her punctuality in "1 Feel
Pretty". Of the many memories she has of life at SMU, bra fights with Jane, Barbara will claim
responsibility for few. Neil and Shannon will take credit for Friday afternoon entertainment in gr.
10. Of course Ross and Troy were always the greatest twisters of Barb's rubber arm. "She can
golf, but does she fulfill the 3 wife qualifications?" Among the party memories are Sydney Island
+ Grandmother's House, AG. and Tuesday AH. spares (if it's not grandmother's chandelier it's
Ann's window), the great 2 a.m. escape, foiled by Sh's fluorescent pj's, late night tuck shop raids.
Space Odessy, J.E. the amazing topless dancer, Hilary's house, Joey's magical sneakers, double
birthday adventures with Sh, chapel spins, Ross's G.Q. haircut - "Shannon, you're so good with
those garden shears!", the cavalry in Beacon Hill Park (the Red coats are coming!), the bubble
repairman, and the restaurant scare. Good luck at U.B.C. Barbie, and if you ever encounter a
problem remember "If you ignore it, it'll go away!"
Julian "Do Do" Brown, Crown Prince of Lethargia, has spent four wonderful years at S.M.U.
and is a proud member of the "South Oak Bay Boys". He enjoyed Summer School with hard
working N.B. and J.S. Julian was always in a hurry and never took his time at anything. He was
often found lounging in his robe in the den while his parents cleaned the basement. Late night
arguments with C.B. often led to major conflicts (dogs vs. humans). Do Do enjoyed a non-stop
night-life during the summer of '83 with C.B., N.B., J.S., Melon, Feath and "Maurene". Julian
kept a low profile in the San Juans but didn't let the side down. He enjoyed the beach fire with
"Scooter" and worked his charm on the unsuspecting American females. Road trips include
burning his lip at Shawnigan, hide -i- seek with R.C.M.P., hopping down docks at Roche Har-
bour. Julian's dicing sense of humor kept us laughing until half way through grade 1 1, but he still
has some good one-liners. Do Do sometimes doubles as luggage but often saves the day and drives
home instead of C.B., J.S. and N.B. He will be remembered as "Mr. Universe" from outdoors
trip in grade 10. Thank you Do Do for your hours of arguments and generally being a great all
round guy and sorry for pushing you off the boat (twice). Good Luck!
Apparently John comes from Calgary, Alberta. 1 have 3 aunts who live in Calgary, who, when
together, could quite possibly drive a man insane within seconds. This is, perhaps, irrelevant. John
has been at SMU for 5 years, during which time he has held such positions as a sectional head of
the yearbook, joint-head of photography and head of the Cake Walk for the Spring Fair. He also,
this year, appeared in the French production of "le Medecin Malgre Lui" and adds paren-
thetically, who could forget Lucas?" Who indeed? But these things are but trifles and offer us
little insight into the man himself - the man who survived 2 years of Pietescience, who sat in the
classes of Mr. Featherstone, Mrs. Thatcher and Mr. Peach. This is the man who gave us the
doctrine of Peachism and FOP, who dabbled with neo-arroganz and toyed w ith cynicism. Here he
is: the man who went to France last summer as an exchange student and returned, who went to
Mexico - and came back. He flirted with these nations but was insatiable. He wanted more and
plans to travel a great deal. This fall, John will go on to sample Trinity College at U of T where
International Relations mav become his life.
Rod Bu>h has cliaiigcci much during his years al SMU. Ho arrived at Ihc lender age of 12, for
grades 8 and '>; he then mysteriously disappeared, only lo reappear relatively unscathed for grade
11. Rod started this year as Head of International House, but unfortunately lost his tie after a
disagreement vvith Mr. Mclaughlin over the rules. A guy like Rod couldn't be held down so he
quickly retmned to prcfecthood on the third lloor of International House, where he has been a
model prelect. One person who would disagree with that statement is Rod's favorite house master
who is the first master in the history of the school to send a prelect to his room (but we won't talk
about that Rod). Rod will be remembered by many of his "boys" for his convenient vision
disorders although he made exceptions for tennis players. Rod claims he is not tender-hearted, but
in reality he is just a big turtle lover who somehow lived through old Brown Hall food, the West
Coast Trail and Uncle Willy's fire drills. Rod has great plans for the military but has promised to
go through Royal Roads Military College before becoming Minister of Defence. Good Luck Rod!
During Catherine's years at SMU she became a jock by being on every sports team - except track
(despite persuasive plotting by the track coaches). She was Winslow House Captain and girl's
Head of House. When Catherine wasn't studying or being a jock she was excelling in yet another
aspect of SMU life . . . partying. Incredibly enough she managed to convince the HH nurses that
she was one of the less "rowdy" grade 1 Is (she blew her cover the first night back in grade 12).
Some of her more memorable experiences include studying at UVIC (via Mt. Tolmie), late night
excursions with TF, food fights in McD's, Beacon Hill Park and the family, taking care of Lucy,
tea parties, getting NT lost at Whistler, rigging games at Colin's, parties at Mr. M's (Cam's),
Andv's, getting lost with DT and N & S, being "ahead" in the BR with BB, being a puppet with B,
the Grad Ski Trips (and the Limeys), SSI road trips, procrastinating with N, S, and B, night out
with the girls at JJ's, attacking a shrub, watching the "Holy Grail" at Barb's and Gordon
Morewood's party. Famous quotations include, "but we're a very good band," "it's that damned
MSG that does it everytime", and "he always does this to us". Next year Calh goes lo the
University of Alberta with her messy roommate.
John, originally hailing from Hong Kong, has in his four years at SMU achieved a standard of
excellence and popularity not only in the classroom but also in the gym. If he cannot be found
playing on the undefeated doubles badminton team, he will most likely be seen performing his
prefectly duties of standing in the Brown Hall lunch line collecting meal tickets. John plans to
attend either Carlton or UBC next year and eventually become either an architect or an engineer.
Whatever you decide on, best of luck!
Kyman Chan, not Kyman-Thomas as Steven says, is a member of the near-lifers. He survived and
kept coming back for eight long years. A native of Brentwood, this guy raced in every day in that
fancy Camaro (hee hee!). Please move to the side of the road, especially if you drive a blue Honda.
Kyman displaved a lot of talent for organizing events. Where would SMU have been without a
Chinese New Year's dinner? Thank Kyman for that one. We even managed to have a financially
successful Spring Fair thanks to him. Kyman's sports ability was especially noted in Grade 6, w hen
he captained the SMU soccer team. But seriously, he was a consistent member of the rugby
squads. His favorite memories of rugby must include Blair King who always had that ridiculous
thing on his head. Scholastically, if he ever had time, Kyman will always cherish French classes
avec Gina. He never missed one. Kyman's most noted academic achievement must be that he
survived one year of Calculus. Congratulations! Kyman must be remembered for his early visits to
C.I.M. (who's there - huh. Shelly?) and the inevitable dozen roses (what else - huh. Shelly?).
Kyman wishes all the grads the best of luck, and hopes that one day they'll be as rich and happy as
he plans to be. From a friend who cares - thanks for the memories!
Leslie Corman is the "tall blonde" girl from Nevada City, California, who all the girls at SMU
"heard" was coming two years ago. She will remember Aarrynne's wild parties and staying up for
the entire duration of exams by drinking twenty cups of tea a night. She has memories of the
strenuous grade 1 1 outdoors week, learning how to sail, being the only grade 12 not on the ski trip,
and participating in the first female boat races. Leslie will be remembered for being one of the five
original party nerds at SMU. Yes, Leslie is the girl who convinced the policeman at DaVinci Hall
to take her dance ticket. She will be remembered as the girl who got a distinction in physics without
even attending class or opening a book and finally for her contribution to St. Michaels. For the
remainder of her life Leslie plans to devise an intricate assassination of Mel Gibsons wife, kidnap
him and take him to a deserted Pacific Island. No really she's going to make lots of money, retire
at the age of 25, go to Paris and marry a starving artist. Just kidding, she's going to study ar-
chitecture a Rensselaer (where's Rensselaer? In New York State)
James came to us somewhere near Brentwood Bay. Leading four very productive years at SMU, he
demonstrated his acting abilities with roles in the school musicals "Fiddler on the Roof and
"West Side Story". This year he jived with the Vocal Jazz group as well. His athletic endeavours
include three years of Mrs. Harlow's aerobic experiences and making a cameo appearance at a
cross-country race. He travelled this year on an exchange to snowy St. Georges Quebec, and then
to the fun and sun of Mexico. One of the few to earn the title of prefect, James assumed the
privileges and responsibilities of the position. During the B.C. Student Commonwealth Con-
ference, James held the prestigeous but nebulous position of Secretary-General (in absentia). An
unforgettable accomplishment for him was surviving endless Mr. Peach unfrench classes. James
will remember never knowing when Steven was at school, FOP and the lipstick, Goesta fixing the
toilet at Strathcona, Mr. Schaffter waltzing into classes with parents, and Paul's strange pen
manoeuvres. In September, James plans to travel east to Trinity College and study something. His
known goals in life are to become monetarily self-sufficient, to travel the world, and to understand
how fire works.
Stephen D.A. Dawson, affectionately known as "the saint" (noboby knows how saintly) has been
a boarder at S.M.U. for four years. This on-time resident of Lahr, Germany, now from our
nation's capital, can often be seen tearing up the ski hill. During his years at S.M.U., Stephen
played Colts and 3rd .\V rugby, became a prefect and avid golfer, and was a member of the ex-
clusive executive club. We'll all remember those flips, Stephen; next time tie your skiing stick to
the ground, OK? Off the ski hill, Mr. Piele fell prey to his crib playing skills and mique wit.
Remember the Calgary Stadium and St. Industries, Big Guy. I'll be there! Anyway, Stephen plans
to go to Western for a degree in Business administration, then it's in to big business and relaxing at
a Swiss chaley. Coffee at the Apple Tree, plotting on the stock market. Jack Gallagher's mistakes
(learn from 'em), a steady supply of contraband sheets, BMW's, ruining the 1st XV pitch with a
golf club, attempted hand stands, personal library and weekday luncheons all make up this in-
tricate guy. Good luck in the future, Stephen. Here's to you!
Gina, a native of Victoria bearing some strong Greek tendencies, came to SMU in Grade 10. Since
her arrival, she has been on the grasshockey and debating teams (but never in chapel), and she is a
member of the yearbook staff (Proofreading?!). Always wearing someone else's sweater, Gina
likes making obnoxious comments and laughing at hilaaarious jokes. Gina bears the singular
distinction of being the only '85 grad to drive under a truck. When not parked under (or through -
but it was the pregnant woman's fault) other vehicles, Gina's car provides transportation for large
numbers of people with caffeine cravings. Apart from TR abuse, Gina's fond memories include
bullying teachers, FOP, shaving cream, rugby (especially those touring teams), certain areas up the
street, and double Gren. Leaving these behind, Gina heads to McGill to study Montreal. Her long-
term plans are to marry a GQ model and live on the Med. Seriously though, she intends to study
international corporate law, make millions, drive a white Mercedes 250 si, then marry a GQ model
and live on the Med. See ya there!
Darcy Jean Dobell. Frequcnlly heard saying "Ya righl!" Darcy could often be found perched on
some elevated Hat surface in the Grade Twelve common room. The boarders will be eternally
grateful for Darcy running a local bus service (maximum capacity ■ 10-13 passengers). Escaping
from Norfolk Darcy began her career at SMU in grade 10, for which certain French teachers will
always be thankful. She will he remembered as the "tieless prefect" who overcame great obstacles
to hand in all assignments on time. She will always remember the "happy Hours" that she spent In
Mexico, especially the holiday playground of Acapolco. Among Darcy's "acquired charac-
teristics" she has excelled in the culinary arts - comprising of midnight splurges (Nochos Nanimo
Bars and her famous Mocha). After having lived in Paris for three years this cocktail connaisseur
will be speaking French in Montreal while studying pre-med at McGill University. We hope thai
her steady hand will safely guide her neurosurgical career, good luck, Darcy and Avanti!
Aarrynne (double a, double r, double n) Dokken (yes, related to a member of the heavy-metal rock
band Dokken, though not proud to admit it) arrived at SMU three years ago. She is originally
from Melfort, Sask., but moved to Victoria six years ago. She will remember her punctual arrivals
to tutorial, her weekly Chapel services (in the change room) and participating in the first female
Boat Races. She recalls the fight for the desk in the corner of the history room and her being the
MOST dramatic ghost in the Haunted House. Aarrynne (one of the five original SMU party nerds)
will be remembered for her beautiful voice, which at times seemed to be the only thing holding up
the choir, her an work, which like all great works of art fails to get recognition, and her (ahem)
appetite like a bird. She now plans to go to Queen's to study law. She would then like to marry a
prince of a small country and take over the legal side of the country.
Well, Chilly. I just have one question to ask you. Do you seriously think that they ... a guy?! We
had some good conversations together during grade ten Drama figuring it out. (And that was even
before the change room was a suitable place to talk in!) Well now at least we know (ha, ha). In
order to graduate we both bad to endure a lot of hardships. Such as a full term of a certian English
teacher. And for the first time we fought the system. We also had to suffer, and I mean really
suffer, through Wednesday early morning Spanish classes. Why did we do that? It was really great
though, recovering on Thursday when we would hop into 'The Tank' and go for tea at the
Blethering Place. (Your highlight was seeing just how fast we could get that little guy to get our
food). McGill is the lucky school that gets your incredible cello, musical talent. I'm sure there were
times when you wished you had never seen a cello, such as when West Side Story began, or during
the filming of a certain commercial. I'll never forget the beautiful 'whale' music you made ... in
the morning! Have fun next year and 1 still promise to come visit and teach you to ski! Love Sari.
P.S. Gillian wants to be remembered as one of the true "Party Nerds".
Her name was Lara Draper, and she called herself Larry Diaper but everyone knew her as Nancy -
no, Laura. Anyway, Lara certainly spent one fresh, exciting and new year at S.M.U. She was born
in Edmonton and went to St. Margaret's for a few years where she won two achievement pins.
\\'ay to go, Lara! Lara contributed quite a bit for such a short stay. She was in the choir, on the
photography staff, badminton team, tiack team, and was a versatile member of the soccer team.
"Upsand Downs" was another event that Lara participated in, as part of the UCTOgang. Lara is
hard to recognize sometimes for her hair changes, her skin tone changes frequently, and she even
looks like a marshmallow sometimes. But no matter what she looks like, she always has a funny
story (well, to her at least) to tell and always generously helps herself to any unwary person's
money for her insatiable appetite. Well, congratulations and best wishes on your Irish career!
Jane will always be known for her sexy green eyes and hourglass figure. One of the Norfolk House
girls, she has been al SMU for three years and has certainly made her mark. How could Mr.
Dunlop forget her fending off Ross's passes at her with his "hand" in economics? Certainly Mr.
Jones won't forget her fantastic ability in Chemistry (hahaha). What about Mr. Murdoch, who
tried to calm her enthusiasm about Doug's little "Geography" lessons? Most importantly Mr.
Gardiner will never forget Jane's trips to his office to clear up little misunderstandings. But the
"real" Jane is known only to her friends. If she wasn't attending classes, she was out to coffee at
O'Donnals with the rest of the people who only went in their spares. The best place to meet her is
at parties where you'll find her riding a tricycle in her toga, chasing cows at Bugsy's, wandering
around beaches or "driving" on Mt. Tolmie. Jane has also been found in Chris Considine's hot
tub and "dancing" in his bathroom, treasure hunting on S.S.I, and stuck behind the West Side
curtain. Jane is going to U.Vic in the fall and then on to take a degree in marrying money. Her
Motto: "If you look innocent enough, maybe other people will believe it too." Good Luck and
keep practising "Tweak and Honk".
Claudia Eichbauer or, translated into english. Lame Oakfarmer, showed S.M.U. what a truly
artistic person is like. Her first and most obvious artistic feature is her ability to paint. This ranges
from portraits to murals on walls to signs for stores to funny little designs on her face and pants.
Claudia's personality is also artistic - meaning that she is very philosophical. When she isn't
pondering life, she can often be heard saying something such as "Hey you. You can do anything if
you really believe in yourself." In fact, her main party activity is talking "deeply" with someone
in and out-of-the-way place. If this doesn't prove Schmetterling's (meaning butterfly's) artistic
nature, the fact that she takes Probs. and Stats, should. All this does not mean that Claudia isn't
popular, though. She is always a reliable friend at the times when you need one; Charles, Dan,
almost Ross, Andrew and Bart will all agree to that statement. Claudia's popularity is also due to
her knee-caps, baby toes, and her beautifully fluffy hair. Being Austrian allowed Claudia to
contribute to the German play and not to contribute to the German class. But she's a very hard
worker, devoting all her spare time in third term to trying to find a job. Good luck. Clod!
Ana came to Canada from Mexico in 1982 to attend SMU as a grade 10 boarder. Since then. Ana
has managed to firmly grasp the English language, and, except for a few minor slip-ups, (e.g. -
"Me want food") it can be said that Ana is an accomplished Anglophone. In between such trivial
activities as debating, acting, and appearing on television. Ana can be found at home, debating
'smile cookies' in preparation for that beloved Mexican holiday known as "Hola Day". Ana's
plans for the future include leaving the little enchilada nest to attend Roedean school in England as
an E.S.U. scholar. When last interviewed. Ana mentioned that she is grateful for the opportunities
that SMU has afforded her - in particular, the chance to study Japanese, without which. Ana's
ritual of "HAI" when confronted with an irrefusable offer, would not have been possible. In
conclusion. Ana will be greatly missed by SMU especially by one Mr. J. P. Schaffter who will no
longer be able to say ad nauseam, ". . . and now, may I introduce to you, a distinguished member
of our far too clever school; one who has been speaking English for only two and a half years
presentlv; a national and two-time regional debating champion. Miss Ana (pronounced "AN-
Cam, a four year veteran of St. Michaels, has made a memorable impact on the otherwise serene
atmosphere of the school. Even those individuals who had only vague associations with the alien
torque-master will remember the '75 Corolla, the day-boy playboy. Van Halen, a reading of 0.29,
octopus, and the grade ten R.T.G. of 1982-83. Cam was a major contributor to the athletic
program and completed his SMU sports career as a member of the second \V, the first XI, the
golf team, and the tennis team. His unfettered aggression on both the rugby and soccer (?!) pitches
earned him the title "Hatchet" (and sometimes the odd comment from a referee). As if he didn't
have enough to occupy his time. Cam kept busy outside of school with premium plus friction
burns, the Oak Bay Golf Course greens, and the Lieutenant Governor's house grounds. But w hat
of the future? SMU's own headbanger has gained acceptances at Western, Carleton and Queen's
and he will likely head for Kingston in the fall.
Jamie "K-tel" Florczak, a native of Victoria (except for a brief stay in St. Albert, Alberta) has
spent his last 3 years at SMU. Jamie has proved himself to be a versatile athlete belonging to the
first W Rugby, first \1 soccer, senior basketball and the track and field team. Jamie, an original
member of the "GOON SQUAD!", will be inimortali/ed with such lines as "This is a shop for
ladies" and "He killed your biother" from West Side Story. Jamie has had a more - than ■ often -
embarrassing social life while at SMU. He was the one who went searching for "spiders" on the
Cirad Ski Trip. Jamie is the only guy who pledged to be faithful on the '84 Australia lour, who
found comfort in Uenmark at Warren B's or who toasted Dave M's car from the inside out. At
school Jamie was found either acting like a geek, making people happy or annoyed, or running
down the hallways yelling out to N.D. "You're right, I'm wrong, I'm sorry!" Anyways, thanks
for being a friend. Jamie moves on to Queens to become a Psychologist.
Thomas Sewell Byng (Buna) Giraud, alias Gremlin, comes from somewhere in northern Alberta, a
place called Fairview . Whether it exists or not, it produced this cheerful, well-liked character. He
spent only two years here (long enough, he claims), yet he was one of the few "honoured"
freshman to become a prefect in his 1st year. His being de-prefected twice (once in five days) is
another honour. Whether it was his right-wing, capitalist, anti-commie beliefs or his comic
collection, we'll never know. Buna was an active participant on the 3rd and 4th XV, was in West
Side Story, choir, vocal jazz, and most enjoyably, referee for girls volleyball. Byng will be at-
tending Carleton or Queens to study political science and eventually get a law degree to enter the
political scene as a redneck Albertan Arab and exploit the masses. Byng will be remembered for his
numbers on Chuckles quota system (Rm. 209), the shower team, his life-sized poster of Mulroney,
his Syrian policy, his southern climates and civil unrest theory, his headband and masks, his
dealings with the Big Bear, his kamikazee way of attacking the slopes, being one of Mr. Williams
"hairy dogs", the short person revolutionary front, skinny dipping at Elk Lake, and of course the
scam-team (ask D.C.).
Ann Glazier is our Oak Bay "ya-woman" refugee. She abandoned her alma mater salvaging only
her Calvin Klein Underwear, polo-shirls and bob haircut (not forgetting the "like ya"). Although
her bob disappeared after a few months revealing several different large earings, she has un-
mistakably remained a "South Oak Bay Girl". Her uniform was a cross between Liz Clabourne
casual and "polo anyone?". She survived escapades with the Mexican Connection to the capital of
some state in America and several others with people much shorter than herself. Ann entered SMU
in grade 11 proving herself smarter than 9 out of 10 people walking down the street, and worthy of
SUPER school. Ann proved herself to be quite the athlete in grade 12 playing field hockey, soccer,
basketball and swimming. When not complaining or planning Ann could be smelt wearing Armani
and earlier Tuxedo. Using her convincing ability Ann goes to UBC next year to study History and
Polv Sci to become a Diplomat in a tropical area with no financial worries whatsoever. Ann would
like to thank N.D.B. Baird for promptly submitting her grad write-up (like ya thanx Neil). Good
luck .'\nn - or should I say buena suerte Popotes?
Dale Goudie, a boarder from Langley, B.C., has thoroughly enjoyed his one year at St. Michael's
University School and wished he had had additional years previously. Some things Dale will be
sure to remember will be the fire drills in the wee hours of the night, tiie cold showers and most of
all Mr. Williams tooting his horn to signal the daily exodus from the house. Dale will be
remembered for his second skateboard which miraculously survived the year, and having finally
succeeded in teaching Dean Pertson to close his door. Dale should be proud of the fact that he was
able to stay awake during most of Mr. Davies' English classes. Dale has great, far-reaching, long
term goals for his life. First, he wants to study Engineering at one of the more Illustrious
Universities in Kingston, Ontario (Queens). Secondly he wants to design the perfect surfboard and
learn how to use it, and finally he wants to spend the rest of his life at the beach practicing on this
new board. We know Dale will succeed in his career because he taught his fellow house members
all about projectile motion and areonautical engineering. This definitely points to a promising
career in Engineering. Good Luck Dale!
Doug Graf, a BCTV scholar from Gabriola Island, B.C., is this year's Head of International
House, a responsibility he carried out in his dependable, calm and efficient way. Doug also played
rugby (2nd XV and 3rd XV) and soccer (1st XI). His ambitions lie in the field of Veterinary
Medicine and his preparatory studies can be taken at the following universities, all of which have
accepted him: UBC, Guelph and Saskatchewan. Doug looks headed for a prairie winter in
Shelly, after her initial shock of having to wear a uniform, quickly set about mesmerizing the
entire school. She became a renowned volleyball captain, the dance committee, a member of the
yearbook grad section, a prefect, and most importantly the "Firegirl" of her tutorial. Shelly, the
'material girl' of S.M.U., never seemed to materialize -- she was always sick! More likely though,
she was romping around with D.A.D. (ask Alan), or perhaps Mr. Saturday called on her (ask Alan
again). In any case, while she was at school she was terrified by Dave and Kurlis who demoralized
her by whip and chain, and enjoyed Friday afternoons with Gren. Shelly, lurking in dark corners
of School House and always managing to get caught, seemed to enjoy telling people to "Die",
especially Michael, who was quick to retort with "Turkey". Of her well-known attributes, the two
most outstanding would have to be her desire to listen to E.J. (Elton John), and her skill at making
Dave's bed. If there's one thing that slicks in Shelly's mind, it would have to be "where did those
roses come from?" As far as long-term plans go, Shelly's only ambition is to beat Byng to the
P.M. seat. Lots of love Shel, and remember, we're "Crazy For You"
Jim came to SMU in grade 10 and left at the end of grade 12. Some of Jim's obvious charac-
teristics were that he was very tall and very funny. Jim says that Mr Featherstone's English classes
will provide him with the most pleasant and vivid memories in future years, so it seems only ap-
propriate to discuss Jim in this setting. Jim was a member of the select group which sat at the back
of the class and, although frequently ignoring Mr Featherstone, usually knew what was going on.
It was here that Jim drew some of his most brilliant and wicked cartoons: Mr Featherstone,
clothed in the latest Viking fashions, complete w ith a horned helmet, raising a tankard of ale and
saying, "Oond da Keg!": or Mickey Mouse, oddly dressed in jack boots and swastika arm bands,
screaming: "Ich bin die Maus, ich bin der Fuhrer, ich bin . . . Mickey!" But this was only the
beginning of the madness. Often, for no apparent reason, Jim would shriek out "Free Wheel
Burning" and "Whiskey Woman You Drive Me Insane" and other Judas Priest lyrics in a piercing
and magnificent falsetto. Jitii wasn't really insane: he was, in fact, a very good student, who did
good work and got good marks and had good things said about him by the teachers, which is also
good. This fall, Jim goes off to Waterloo to study urban planning. His vespa scooter stays in
Sooke. Stay wacky. Ladoo.
Mike, from Victoria (or was it Metchosin?) has been attending St. Michaels for six years and
claims to have generally brightened everyone's life during that time. He has participated fully in
athletic activities, playing on the First .XI, the third XV and the tennis team. Everyone will recall
his preppy yellow shorts which he wore for jogging (or was it coffee). 'Hadders' will remember his
final year at SMU for its long classes, the too-short recesses and D-block (not a spare?). He will
also, like the rest of us, always revere those special moments at O'Donals where the coffee was
never burnt and was always served with a special smile. It was rumoured that Mike might take up
some study in the medical field, at least to satisfy his expensive tastes or perhaps follow in the
footsteps of his hero, Magnum PI. The truth is, Mike will take his wealth of knowledge in the
sciences, languages and math and apply them directly, as a fulltime windsurfer and bum (in the
best style of course). The next few years will see Mike working hard to be preppy (he will name-
drop shirt labels), listening to Chuck Mangione (despite the abuse) and driving a Porsche, or a
Ferrari or a VW convertible whichever comes first.
Don Haninicrslcy. Ironi Colwood, B.C., has had a six year career al SMU during which he made
good academic progress and shown a keen interest in rugby which culminated in his earning a
regular place in this year's 1st .\V. Don now moves to Vancouver to attend UBC where he will take
Pre Med courses.
Richard was born in Saskatoon, but lives in Victoria and has been attending SMU for three years.
During that time he has added to and enjoyed lite as one of the Oak Bay crowd. In fact, Richard
has weathered well the friendly good-natured abuse from Cam who continually tries to make him
look like a vegetable. Richard's fondest iriemories of school life include watching 'All My
Children' during the lunch hour (if anyone asks, Richard knows who killed Zac Grayson).
"Dickie", as everyone calls him, will be remembered for his radiant blush over which he claims to
have no control. Although he is particularly proud of his neat and legible handwriting, he feels
that his greatest achievement is not skipping one class in three years (not that that is unusual).
Richard is an honest and straightforward person, although no one ever knows what he is saying,
mumble, muinble. He will certainly be successful though he claims to have no such ambition. Next
year, Dickie will probably attend Queens but may also be seen hitting tennis balls over the fence at
Windsor Park or learning to drive his father's Mustang.
Andrew Heaman is a Prefect who also performed admirably in West Side Story, but it is his
athletic prowess which will be remembered. He is an outstanding rugby player who toured
England and Scotland with the B.C. Junior team as well as playing so well in school and local club
rugby. Andrew is also a strong performer in basketball, soccer and track. This delightful young
man is also a fine scholar with acceptances from Queens, Toronto (Victoria College), McGill,
Waterloo, UBC and UVic. Al this stage he is undecided as to where he will go, but he will
definitely concentrate on getting a degree in Biology.
This lively little gal hopped off the plane from Regina and hit SMU with a storm. Shannon soon
gained rightful recognition in athletics and scholastics, becoming school captain. Chapel Warden
and H.H. Prefect. She actively participated in soccer, volleyball, track and field, boat racing, and
swimming (in Elk Lake). Lucille (if you please) soon became known for her capability of 'looking'
organized, those dangerous red pyjamas, and stomach aches while shopping. To all those who
knew and love the "creature", her biggest miracle was being a super student. Lucy will long
remember her phone bills, cutting Ross' hair, Skippy peanut butter, being Barb's baby baboon
(vomit), crawling out of small windows, and not being allowed at Grandma's House. Shannon's
memories of SMU life range from Lye (which she confounded) all the way to San Fran where she
wore a bag on her head and shaved her legs outside the airport. Memories of the TS, John D.,
Space Odyssey, the watch, John the scid flash-back man and being stranded downtown will always
be remembered with love. In the future my baby baboon will be vacationing in California while
attending Loyola Marymount University. She hopes never to fall in love with a man who has to use
a Grevhound bus.
"Come to party with me at New York, New York" was this great looking, great smelling guy's
most redundant request. Niko, now a resident of Victoria, actually comes from Munich, West
Germany (never would have guessed it!) and has spent five cool, party years at our quasi-
fashionable school, SMU. Apart from his stylish way of flyfishing, '64 Corvair, funk music, and
pretty face, he had an influential position on the senior tennis team and claims to have been a
yearbook photographer (this is a lie - Ed.). Niko had a unique presence at SMU he did enjoy
flyfishing, but always had time to discuss sophisticated problems such as "the origins, present
structure and purpose of the universe as an abstract concept" or "the causes for springing out of a
window (Spring! Ja, Spring!)." Such a down - to - earth - yet - still - fashionable, ready - to - talk -
about - anything guy is rare. Nick plans to take his great charm to UVic for a year, then to
Lasanne, Switzerland, to become something like a businessman or a lawyer in Europe.
Tom Jarecki is a fine scholar who has enjoyed great success in many Math and Physics contests.
Tom is also a fine runner with both cross country and track teams. Tom has ambitions to go into
aerospace engineering and after receiving acceptances from Toronto and Queen's, will go to
Kingston to take Applied Science and Queen's.
Simon, SMU's resident ace face, hails from Ouagadougou, Upper Volta and is known for his
cynicism, acid wit and fine taste in clothes. Slim was not much of a school participant; he was a
restless lad with other interests. On the dance floor, Simon grooved the swim, the monkey, and the
surf. In the scene, he developed a fine claw technique with S.R. under the careful guidance of W.J.
On Mt. Tolmie, he came close to meeting destiny in a Datsun pick-up again and again - one more
time! Yes, Jenko drifted astray. Perhaps it was Relish? Or his infatuation with the rock cult? Or
those arrogant youths on scooters? In any case. Slim has been well assured that he has no future as
a result. He'll likely spend the rest of his days grovelling in weeds. But this cappuccino cat fears
not! Emperor Haile Selassie is his strength! Jah, Rastafari — ever living, ever fearful, ever sure.
Liz, a wild socialite from Sidney, B.C. has more than made her mark on SMU. This Norfolk
refugee has contributed to grass hockey, debating and the dance committee, but she still found
time to camp out in Mr. Gardiner's office and squirt innocent people with shaving cream. Upon
entering the school three years ago she immediately found herself a strange German male who
drove a "command wagon" (remember the gearshifts Liz?) and established herself as a confirmed
partier. When she is not studying diligently at school, Liz can be found with Jane and Barb doing
certain illegal things in the bathroom of Pags or heading to the beach in Gina's TR7. Liz has
always been a strong supporter of dances, such as the "Shawnigan Dance" or the Glenlyon dance
which appeared to be held at Paul's Terrace. Other times, she hangs out at duck ponds near
Linda's or in potato fields in Gordon Head. Years from now we will remember Liz furiously
putting down "PSP'S", biking to 7-11 in a toga at 4 am, or drinking naked martinis at
Aarrynne's. Ne.\t year Liz will stay at UVIC where she will no doubt turn residence on its ear.
Good luck to you, Liz, and stay away from those ND's.
I'rom Abbolslord, Rob entered SMU in Cirade 8, and soon became known as [he Master of ihe
Universe. As one ol the school's many sportsmen, he played soccer and tennis and was a member
of the 2nd XV. Irench classes were blessings for Rob, lor they allowed him lo catch up on sleep
missed as a result of his frequent nocturnal excursions. He managed to get along with B.S. for five
years, which he found very hard lo do. Rob will remember the many coffees that he got from
Sean's coffee- mobile, and will be mimortali/'ed as the creator of the Slurpee diet. Rob wants to
continue his studies at UBC, and end up as a curer of illnesses. We wish him every success.
Steven Kasapi, a resident of the little community of Victoria, has cherished the five years he has
spent at St. Michaels. He has contributed in a major way to all the aspects of school life as
yearbook editor, prefect, and a member of student council. Most importantly, though, he has held
the school together as Head Student. Steve is a dependable, humourous, talented, deep individual
who has led the class from behind the scenes. He will never, ever forget the "thud" noise of the
darkroom door. Nor will he forget the picnic in Ihe chem lab at which he and Daralyn mi.xed apple
juice into the titration solutions and lived. His amazing flair for mathematics has won him billions
of math awards and has even helped the school earn the title of top math school in Canada. Steve
will attend Harvard next year to learn to spell. When asked about his future, he says "1 may
become a scientist." Dear Steve, the person who has forgotten how to run and whose future points
to male exotic dancing at Guido's, thank you for being you. It's been real!
It was a cool September afternoon in 1982. There was unusual activity in the front quad: a group
of students had surrounded and were taunting a young Swiss immigrant. From these inauspicious
beginnings rose into being what is generally known today as John Kerekes. .Mter his first days at
SMU, John fit in well with his fellow students, although it should be noted that he did not return
to boarding in Grade II. John has brought a certain continental air to the school, creating for
himself the impression of an "homme international". Only recently, he was off on a madcap two-
week ning to Mexico. When asked if he has done anything amazing or wonderful, John smiles and
modestly replies: "The best I can see is being in three plays last semester . . ." And yet, this is but
the surface. Lurking behind those smiling eyes and non-commital mouth is a devout follower of
the doctrine of "Peachism". John will certainly be remembered for more than his "Swiss accent"
and "Just being Swiss." It is hard in this brief write-up to sum up all that was John and what he
meant to all around him. In a scant three months, he will be off to U Vic and later to UBC to study
Business and perhaps then Law.
Blair King, a resident of North Delta, has enjoyed three successful years at SMU. He will never
forget Ihe 6:30 AM fire drills while he was in the shower with full lather, nor will he forget the
three plays in which he took part (and their ensueing cast parties!) Any mention of velcro in Blair's
presence brings back fond memories of "Fiddler on the Roof. Mr. Williams will always remain a
part of Blair's memories as will the little "Salvation Army" pins that replaced his greatly-desired
tie. Blair must be remembered for his easy-going prefectness and leniancy toward his "boys". He
often had a chuckle watching people "sneak" out for their midnight rendezvouses at 7-11 or
MacDonald's. In his last year Blair has done many things for the school. He set the school record
for the 2000M steeplechase and set the course record for the Brentwood cross-country race. He
was Captain of Bolton House, the cross-country team, and for the second consecutive year the
soccer team. Blair's life-time goals are diversified to say the least. He intends to go lo Queens
University and then into business, law, or medicine and after that, possibly into politics. Blair is
sure to succeed in which ever field he finally chooses. Best of Luck!
Michael Robert King, better known as the Party Man, came to SMU in grade 10 from Sunshine
Hills, Delta. This boarder prefect managed to amaze everyone with his many abilities. They
ranged from head chapel warden, dance committee co-everything, avid cricket player, to surviving
the west coast trail. This year proved that Mike was an exceptionally talented singer. First, he
joined the choir, then played Vocal Jazz and finally became Tiger in West Side Story. None of us
ever found out if he was really a bass or a tenor. Mike won't forget the Grad Ski Trip (not just
because of Julian's awkward accident). Mike developed his organizing techniques throughout the
year. If it wasn't dinner at JJ's or Yokohama's it was raiding SG's at lunch. Some of Mike's
fondest memories have to be with the Gym Family. They fooled everyone by not getting caught.
Nobody will forget Mike's Hersey kisses, all 1800 of them. If this LB isn't receiving messages he's
surrounded by his harem. When not out on a coffee spare, Michael is saving his pennies for his
material girl (aren't you SG).
Julian, our sole representative from the booming conurbation of Coaldale, Alberta, has been a
boarder at S.M.U. since grade 7. During this time he suffered the throes of Brown Hall food and
still managed to survive to become a School House prefect. Julian also kept the students council
from taking itself too seriously for 3 years. Julian proved to be an all round athlete. His greatest
contribution to the exertion of physical energy was as the hooker for the 1st .XV rugby team during
which time he was awarded the colours and toured Australia. However, Julian's many talents do
not end there - he was a member of the S.M.U. singers, the festival singers and the Vocal Jazz, as
well as appearing in all three musicals, particularly in the lead role of Riff in West Side Story.
Capt. Procrastination wishes to be remembered for his incredible capacity for hard work. He will
never forget many romantic evenings with Judith out on the town in the boat. Nor will he forget
his awkward injury on the grad ski trip which confined him to skiing the lodge with Neil. Julian
will also remember being one of the coffee achievers, terrorizing Victoria at all hours w ith Charles,
suntanning 'le monstre terrible' on skip day, eating pizza and drinking something else with Alan
and Dave, and gorging on exotic food with Michael. Good luck, J.K. in all your ventures and keep
In truth, Lucinda's sojourn at SMU has not always been pleasant; the more admiration is due to
her for adapting the school to her own needs. Never has she given in to the rigidity of thought
which would have facilitated her confrontation with various courses. Instead, she has wrestled
each day anew with the implications of what was being said; her instinctive spontaneity has ren-
dered her akin to some phantastic fish writhing in the arms of a woman who has dragged it out of
its cool green pond. Lucinda has used the same energy which dominates her mother's paintings to
confront and attempt to understand the human social and intellectual milieu, and has found it
wanting. Her utter vulnerability has given way to an assertive appeal for a humane sensitivity
which proclaims itself in her creations. Her contributions to English class discussions have em-
barrassed those unable to cope with her frankness. Lucinda's art has frequently been displayed at
the school; in her luminous batique the fish traces a winding path toward life. Lucinda reached an
apex in her role as Anita in West Side Story, where her love of jazz and dance radiated from her.
Lucinda has been accepted at Reed College, Oregon, where she hopes to apply the art of film to
her intense creativity.
John is not, I repeat not, your typical California windsurfing beach bum with a weakness for fresh
abalone, contrary to popular opinion. This is merely an extreme reaction to the climatic adap-
tation which he has endured upon stumbling from the frozen wastelands of Alaska to sunny B.C.
John has been at SMU since grade 9, except for his mysterious disappearance in grade 11 (it is
murmoured that he ventured even further south in quest of sunshine). As he graduates John takes
with him many fond memories of the school - including old Brown Hall food, chem-block coffee
trips, skipping afternoon physics classes to go windsurfing and "party-night". Plans for the
future? Well, John has decided to postpone further "higher education" for a year and earn some
money or bike around the country (John is an avid cyclist). .-Xfter that he will hang glide his way
through Pomona College, then persue his ambition to become an author by "writing lots of
books". Summing up school life John says, "This place is a lot better than the Arctic, .'\fter four
years away from there, my brain has almost thawed. A bush village is no place to grow up, but
boarding here has almost cured me!". Best of luck, John!!
C arl l.orceii came lo S.M.U. as ihe "super" recruit from Pi. Bob, Wa. for the Grade 12 class of
85. Uncle Snarl will remember his first term at SMU as one of steamy romances and steamy rucks
cV: manls. The 2nd term however was BB, BH, and you guessed it the "Anchor luv." Carl wishes to
be remembered for his athletic, academic and social contributions (the latter of which are most
extensive). Liverpool kisses and Rich Ihe Ral won't he forgotten. Luinpy has also been Ihe main
contributor to many stimulating conversations (he lends to talk loo much). His most ama/ing teal
has to be slaying uninvolved (or jusi clued out) in the notorious SMU gossip scene. He has also
managed lo slay uninjured al many a SMLJ social function even though he has been heavily in-
volved with Bongs and Shotguns. After graduating and getting over the trauma of leaving in-
lernational House, Carl hopes to study Veterinary Medicine at U.C.L.A. because he enjoys
children. Carl also hopes lo watch all the UCLA BB games, so he can become a fully fledged
athletic supporter. Hey, um, Carl greatly wishes to thank Mr. D. Hammersly for helping out on
the Larm with Guilda (the pig) and Garelh for coaching him in egonometric games. Carl would
also like to thank L.T. and R.T. for their invaluable support throughout the year. Ha, Ah, Chh,
Chh, Chh . . .
Tim has been at SMU for 5 years and, when asked what he will remember about the school, he
inarticulately replied: "hot days face down on the field; deadly classes face down on the desk;
good people and great teachers." Tim the recipient of the Jay Pogson Memorial Scholarship, will
undoubtedly be remembered for his musical talent and particularly his major roles in the school
musicals. However, Tim is perhaps most famous for handing in his English essays consistently
late. Who will ever forget Mr. Featherstone saying: "Tim, I look forward to receiving your Julius
Caesar essay with fear and loathing." He said this to Tim in grade 12, but we read Juluis Caesar in
grade 9. Tim assures us that he has done amazing and wonderful things but refuses to be specific.
Concerning his future, Tim would like to design and build the master race and secure world
domination for it. This is interesting. As a closing comment, Tim would like to ihank Elsie
Reynolds for her great contribution to his education. Tim expressly requested that 1 refrain Irom
referring to him as "Timmv Tadpole" in this write-up, so I will certainly not mention it. Tim goes
on to Whitman College in Washington where he has received a quite massive scholarship.
Babak Maghfourian from Paris, France, has spent just one year as a boarding student. He settled
in well and participated in rugby and track and field. Although he speaks several languages, Babak
has a strong interest in computers and goes to UVic this Fall to study Computer Engineering.
This die-hard "Who fan" native of Sidney BC managed to survive seven long years al SMU. An
avid rugby jock. Lex served on most rugby teams at one time or another, spending two years of the
first fifteen and touring Australia in the summer of 1984. When not in the smoke hole or at
O'Donalds or face down in a certain orange truck, Alexei could most often be found "crashed
out" in the common room, cursing soap operas or bothering A.G. Sexy's list of SMU memories
includes being a member of the DF's, swiftshures, DH's presents, air drums in New York, being
converted by L.J., tutorial with Mel, road trips, skip day, Mr B.F. sending kinky valentines,
A.G.'s lists his most amazing accomplishments as getting de-prefected in grade seven and sur-
viving a brutal beating from Mr. Gardiner and Mr. Faulkner but he will most likely be remem-
bered for getting Bob to buy some salt and a lemon and his countless A.N. guards. Mr. Physics is
off to Queens next year to study engineering, future plans include "all things INXS". Any final
words? "When in doubt, use brute force", (how typical) Here's to a good one pink pig.
Mike, to all appearances, spent his last few years at SMU sitting out back smoking in a blue
Mustang (They're not study periods, Mr. Jones, THEY'RE SPARES!) Hailing from beautiful
Mctchosin, Mike is a near-lifer with 8 years at SMU under the belt of his nice grey suit. An avid
opponent of extracurricular activities, Mike limited his participation in sports to attending parlies.
'Mattress' will fondly remember coffee at O.D.'s, road trips, McD's bathrooms, Swiftsure skip
day, listening to P.P. with N.B., and D.H.'s willingness to do anything for a buck. 'Mike baby'
lists his most notable achievement at SMU as not getting kicked out. We'll remember the Shrew
for being an important member of D.F.'s, his extensive vocabulary, his self sacrifice on the S.S.I,
roadtrip, his fantastic calculus mars (1 1/2% isn't that bad Mike), his Neanderthalic friends, and
his neverending supply of notable quotations ("What do you want me to do, take a picture?") and
his particular tastes in Women (Ayyynything!) Mattress Michael is off to UBC next year to study
Engineering in hopes of someday owning a Lamborghini. Here's to the wild life buddy ("Hey
Dude, lets PARTY'.") PINK PIG.
Pamela Ann McCune hailing from Port Townsend, Wash, remains a patriotic American even
after her three years at SMU. All will remember Pam's graceful "Nancy-like" basketball style
which she displayed during three aggressive years on the senior squad. Her basketball career is
marked by memorable trips to Abbotsford, Duncan (the VG) and to Seattle (corn chips have
always been her favorite food). Being of the athletic bent Pam has been the mainstay of the cross-
country team, placing first in the ISA meets for two consecutive years and placing well in the city,
island and provincial meets. On a higher note, Pam was one of the few grade 12s courageous
enough to jump out of an airplane. Grade twelve has watched Pam mellow into the role of soap
groopee-going to extensive, immaginative lengths to watch those addictive serials. Between attacks
of "reubenitis" Pam found slopes of Whister/Blackclombe the place to display her unique skiing
style. Pam, the taller of MRK's harrem, enjoyed a year of service which included evening ex-
cursions to JJ's, the Keg and McD's. Pam will be remembered for such expressions as "I'm sooo
embarrassed", "I'm just sure" and "slime". Her memories of SMU will include tea breaks,
picnics and English class. Good luck, Pam - we're going to miss you MUCHLY! !
Captain Tuck Shop, also known as Shaun McElroy, hails from Victoria and has been at S.M.U.
for eight long years. Shaun has definitely done his time, with over 120 formal exams to his name -
all written in his infamous wooly Indian socks (not in school colours). Shaun can be remembered
as an active member of the 2nd W doing it's dirty work by First bustin', his excellent work with
the 'tads', his special Ghost Stories, the Porta-tuck at all the dances, and for keeping the grade
lO's under control in the Tuckshop. Who can forget the Gremlin in the Sooke-and-back road race?
Yes, he did make it (barely). Those comments in History class, clapping in chapel, flash-backs
from 'Nam (Rambo would be proud), the West Coast trail and those camera flashes all point to
our Captain, For Shaun's future he's heading to Australia to wear shorts all year and show off his
hair. Eventually, he hopes for a world wide chain of tuck shops specializing in free psychiatric
counselling. But maybe he'll go on to be a bartender, failing that he will end up as a cabinet
minister in Byng's Regime. Shaun was an affectionate guy who we'll remember for the good times.
Shaun's final comments are not obnoxious (sorry, Joe) but simply this: "Live On". Yea, live on,
Shaun, and see the future.
The infamous Ross McGowan travelled all the way from Mill Valley, Ca. to spend seven well
enjoyed years at SMU. After five Ross found boarding a little tedious and decided to try life as a
play-boy day boy and after several stops has finally found his niche on Wark Street. Ross will long
be remembered for his participation in Math and Fizziks contests as well as 3rd XV rugby, scuba,
climbing, and entertainment (parental guidance suggested). For those who know Rosco he will
always be remembered for that mushy nose, stretchy skin and shark eyes. When not studying he
could be found in the Parliament Building Fountain, hanging off of balconies, playing with sheep.
Ross has made several notable accomplishments on his way through SMU. He is the only non-
smoking smoker, he saw the real living Rockerhead (Excuse me Sir, could we listen to something a
little more . . . youthful?), he cut the bottom of the Old Time Syrup, lived through the night of the
killer peacocks and pulled out of his double dee stage. If you spent enough time with Ross you
would undoubtedly have heard such expressions like, "Let's phone my parents", "Bad Hands"
and no problem I know exactly where I'm going". Remember Ross, if ever at a loss for words say

When I first mei Ken, I thought to myself: "I know that kid from somewhere!" 1 introduced
nnself but he rudely ignored me and it was then that 1 realized that I had never before met anyone
quite like him. Departing from his innocence on his arrival in grade nine. Ken has achieved a near
dictator status in tnglish class, has assumed the role as the "brutal lampooner" of almost every
member of the school and, it is here that 1 pause and ask for concentration, he has written a book.
"Colin's Fantastic Video .Adventure", published by Dutton in the U.S. and Puffin in the Com-
monwealth: thus began his writing career, but let us return to the school for a moment. Ken shall,
of course, always reflect upon Mr. Piete driving us to the beach in his wet-suit, Mr Schallici
talking to us about N-War at a careers talk, Mr. Featherstone's brutal but effective teaching
methods and Mr. Wilson's astounding brevity. Ken particularly enjoyed reading the some ten
thousand back issues of the Proceedings of the U.S. Naval Institute in our school library during
his long hours of relavation . . . ah, hut I digress again. Ken will be at Trinity for the next lew
years, after which he will most likely write, travel, learn and see lor the rest of his life. Und da
steht es, Schwarz auf Weiss.
Warren Pears, from Sidney. B.C.. has been a keen and successful rugby player who secured a
regular place on this year's 1st .\V. Warren has also made good academic progress and goes on to
UBC to study Sciences. He will always be affectionately known to the staff as TOLSTOY.
Steve was born in Victoria and has attended SMU for three years. During this time he has owned
innumerable vehicles and calculators. Steve will always cherish fond memories of O'Donal's.
possession of his BMW (which spent W^o of its life being revitalized), Pez and Mike's wood-
working skills. Steve always seemed to enjoy himself in Physics, however his attitude lacked in-
tensity. "Peddles" wishes to be remembered for his finely tuned driving skills, biting wit and
warped sense of humour. Steve plans to take a year off and earn some "bills" and then will "do"
Europe in a VW van. Upon returning he will pretend to study engineering at UVIC. Steve elected
to allow the other students the pleasure of athletic competition at a great sacrifice to his own
physical condition - he did. however watch the occasional event. His ultimate goal is to own his
own exotic auto manufacturing company. Good luck Steve.
MARK PENNER A.K.A. BAD MOMMA, OLDMAN PENNE, always went out of his way to
talk to SMU females. If they wouldn't talk, he would ask for their signature. Through being a
crucial member of the Bad Dads, Old Man played 1st .XV, swam and bicycled. In class, Mark
never let his light saber, Mr. Greenwell, and sluff spaz-out impressions interfere with him getting
awesome grades. In fact, Mark has been offered early acceptance to Queens where he plans to take
pre-med and a few other things. Mark was classroom monitor in Grade 7, but since he and the Bad
Dad met, for some reason no positions have been offered to him at the school. Whether it was
having a major party when his parents were away, literally tearing up the town, race car driving, or
going down under. The Bad Momma has managed to accomplish some very impressive scams and
adventures during his tenure at SMU. Besides driving a hot car, Mark always went mental at
dances and parties and was a very funny Jet in West Side Story, but he will be remembered for
always being able to put a smile on some body's face.
Rockin' Dean Pertson, a happenin' dude from the village of Nanoose Bay, has been at S.M.U. for
four years. Two of those whacky years were spent in the same International House room, cell 106.
He will never forget Sunday chapel, boarding, Mr. Williams, and Little "T". This Master of the
Universe shall be remembered for developing and organizing the skydiving group for grade II
outdoors week, never being in residence on the weekends, for bringing a barrel full of fun to the
grad skip-day, and for reading sci-fi during Chem class. He intends to become either an Engineer
or a Lawyer, .'kfter he makes up his mind, he then hopes to retire as soon as possible. Good luck in
the future. Dean. Both we and Romeo's Pizza will miss you.
Earl Pleasance has followed a family tradition and written a lot of Math contests. Earl will start
his university career in British Columbia with the hope of going on to Military College in 1986.
Here we have such a party nerd/potatoe as the school shall never see again. Apart from being a
prefect, chapel warden, chorus member, member of the jazz quartet, jazz choir and trio, yearbook
illustrator'and head of Art & Lit., elected to the Student's Council in grades eleven and twelve and
a member of the first XV girls hockey team, Lindsey, though generally of a kind disposition (to
say the least) struck fear in the willful hearts of many a grade eight, nine and ten girl for her rigid
enforcement of garment discipline. The support staff has done its best but Lindsey and her award-
winning cartoons have left an indellible mark on the school, just as the school has left its mark on
Lindsey. She was the unwitting victim of double Featherstone of Fridays, a witness at the
manifestation of the Great Snowbank in Spanish class and, of course, a renowned Poster Person.
Yet, we ask her: Who are these "party nerds"? When did Woodsworth say "Happy, Happy
Liver?" But it does not matter because our Lindsey will always be Lindsey as a member of the
diplomatic corps, a teacher, or a freelance artist. Our desk potatoe leaves this fall for "a rainy part
of Britain" followed by time at Trinity and we wish her excessive happiness. She has no other
comment "but hey, it's been a slice!"
Sari PrcvoM came lo SMU three years ago from Momreal, Calgary and Scallle. Wednesday
morning Spanish classes wiih a certain teacher are among the things that Sari will remember about
SMU. She will also remember the grade 1 1 sailing trip, Nerd Day, Beach Day and the grad ski trip.
Sari being the active person that she is loves to ski and did so fairly often throughout the year
(e\er\ weekend!). When the snow melted Sari found thai skiing on rocks was not as much fun, so
she said, "I'd rather be sailing." and on subseguent weekends she was found doing just that.
When Sari is not skiing, or sailing, she can be found talking loudly and quickly to everyone in
sight. On the few ucckends that Sari did stay in Victoria she mamlaitied an active social life and
practiced extra curricular school activities such as choir and West Side Story. .Ml together Sari has
had three successful years at SMU. Next year she will be attending Lewis and Clarke University in
Portland, Oregon where she hopes to study psychology. Sari has been an interesting and colourful
member of this year's graduating class and will most definiiels continue to succeed in the future.
Bart Emery Reed (Bartie B) was orginally scouted by JS when he was living in the shadytown of
Gordon Head (a few miles from South Oak Bay). Known by all his friends as Bart, he spent the
"early years" being a nymph as a cheetch and saying kipinontonsolifno. His artistic endeavour of
"Super Fag" remains embalzoned in the hearts (as well as notebooks) of millions. He was in-
troduced to the joy of rugby at SMU and spent grade 10 playing on the wing, scoring tries. He
learned how to ski in the presence of the grade 10s on a school ski trip to Mount Baker. In grade 1 1
he continued his rugby career by playing on the 1st .XV. He particularily remembers two very
enjoyable dances that year. That summer he toured Down Under with the school and could
frequently be found complaining with Pal Parrel. It was on this tour that "Dreamie" was born
(good ol Aukland) and Bart became known for his fanatical attitude towards stamps. In his senior
year Bart could be found dancing to the Beatles on top of the View Street Parkade. He shall be
remembered for always buying "Fizz" in grade 10, bringing the bungles to parties and his hair.
His favorite letter is T, and he hopes to aspire to manager of Mr. Smorgie's - after he graduates
Gareth Rees is one of the best athletes in the long history of the school, with established e.xcellence
in rugby, basketball and track. Also Gareth, a modest and popular young man, is School Captain,
a Prefect and member of the Student Council. In order to play top class rugby in Canada he will go
on to UBC or UVic, but next school year will see Gareth as an English Speaking Union exchange
scholar at Harrow, one of England's most prestigious schools. A founder member of the North
Oak Bay Gang who always fails on his feet - except when tree climbing. A fitting climax for Gareth
was winning the top S.M.U. Award "The Kerr Cup", and being named Captain of the Canadian
National Junior Rugby \V. Good Luck Gareth - your talent and Leadership will be missed. See
you at the Keg.
Suzanne Mary Reimer, a boarder from Gibsons, B.C., has been a member of "our little com-
munity" since grade 10. An active participant in many areas, she was a member of the soccer
team, yearbook committee, and the .\-counlry team. She also has been a score keeper for
basketball and an avid sports fan, thus deeming her a faithful athletic supporter. In grade 11, she
hiked the West Coast Trail with a small group of friends and a w hole lot of courage. Sap. During
the hike, she never was without her trusty mirror and brush - Oh, great vanity! In grade 12 she
decided to join the world of fashion. Her goal as a fashion designer failed. However, she did
manage to start a new trend of pyjamas - the button down shirt. (What had inspired this?!) She
also had the occasional chance to join "the gym family", partaking in fab evenings of fun as
"Mama Gym". Suzy was also christened a new arrival to the original Party Nerds. And besides
being a supporter at all tentative social events, she was a fervent supporter of (everything . . .)
British. Suzy eventually managed to attain prefectship and took her Harvey House duties
relatively seriously. Suzy had a successful and memorable 3 years at SMU - Good Luck Siize,
We'll miss you.
Peter arrived quite suddenly at SMU in Grade 10. Since this point he has enriched the school with
his suave Continental look and delightful foreign accent. He claims he was born in Dublin, but we
suspect he is actually from Colwood. In addition to being a fan of Remington Steele and Sean
Connery, Peter also idolizes British actor and writer, Dirk Bogarde. Peter is liable to become
infuriated if Mr. Bogarde is spoken of slightingly. Well-read and very articulate, Peter is a
pleasure to talk with in English class, although it is hard to engage in a proper conversation over
Mr. Featherstone's voice. Not satisfied with merely filming a rock video or starring in a rock
\ideo. Peter actually wants to "BE a rock video." Peter's aims also include the acquisition of
"lame, money and other sordid material things." This last quotation perhaps gives the impression
that Peter is inhumane and coldly pragmatic and, in fact, he has often told me that although
money can't get you everything, it at least puts you in the position where you can get at it more
easily. However, Peter is a smashing lad and I am confident that he will go on to land a top-flight
job in either the food service or house-keeping industries. He will study at Victoria College at the
University of Toronto this fall.
Ian, one of the two crazy llyfishernien, is from Victoria and has spent four years at St. Mikes,
trying to surpass Niko's llyfishing skills. He will be remembered as a great rugby player and also as
the guy with the sexy cycling shorts. Besides that, he has done some art and participated in a play
or something. Ian -i??! Ian remembers riding face to face on Jim's scooter, Niko's black Disco-
funk in his Corvair, Ralph Lauren addicts, Mr. Featherstone's "Wit" Lit class, parties everywhere
(Oak Bay isn't really better). West Side Story, endless "Tour" stories and parachuting in the sun
with accompanying hay fever. His greatest ambition is to graduate from University, become rich
quick, build a log cabin on a "productive" trout stream and fish all day long. We will remember
him (those of us who were there at the time) for saying: "This is truly a gentleman's sport." after
netting a 1 5-incher caught on a small dry fly. Have a good one.
Jay was a fatally fun loving, small town boy from Dawson Creek. B.C. He was an insane drummer
and innovative artist among other things. Kind and generous underneath his slightly rebellious
appearance. Jay always knew how to 'cheer up' his friends. Jay never failed to have a good time
despite the pressures of school and the inevitability of it all catching up to him in 'the end' ... He
will be studying art at University of Calgary w hen he gets all his credits.
Marlis came to SMU from the buzzing metropolis of Nanimo. B.C. in grade 1 1 to be subjected to 2
years of private school life. After having lived with Mr. Gardiner. Marlis can truly say that she
loves Biolcrgy and would never be caught dead being "silly". Mar was a real jock playing field
hockey (being vice-captain in grade 12). badminton (does anyone wonder why?), soccer and
countless others. She will undoubtedly be remembered for her constant laugh and her disagreeing -
"c'mon you guys . . .". locker room chats, collecting lunch tickets (I'll get it to you later . . . um,
OK.?), her Huge umbrella, comparisons of Nanimo to Victoria, her school spirit and friendly
outlook and attitude. Although .Marlis excelled academically, she had elected to pass by Hai\ard
for now and go on a Rotary Exchange to Brazil. We wish her luck (fighting off enchanted dark-
haired Brazilians) and may she marry a "hunk" and live in Nanaiino with her many children and
friends. Buen suerte!
I'aul came lo SMU in Grade eleven as a (ilenlyon refugee and very soon became an iniportani asset
10 Ihc Super School. He participated in several amateur productions with the Victoria Savoyard
Society and competed in many regional and provincial debates. We'll never forget the U.N. or
Mission B.C.! We shan't mention his exhilarating performances on the track & field team but will
always remember his popular and entertaining lessons on "pen twirling" (one of I'ablilo's greatest
virtues). This year he was head of the Activities Department of the ^■earbook Committee and
distinguished himself in the top linglish set for his "typical Paul essays" (Quotation from dearest
G.I'.). The loving Prefect shall not forget luesday's Early Prep and [Jetenlion tasks or the
second-hand .Japanese lessons (Between 'Hai' or 'lie' we'll hopefully agree some day!). How can
we forget darling "Shit-San", "IVliss Gossip", Brown Hall lunches. Bio labs with sweet S.P. or
wondering just HOW Peter "gets his kicks". As an hnglish Speaking Union Scholar, Paul will be
attending Mcrchiston Castle School in Scotland next year and will later further his studies at
I rinilv College at U. of T. or at IVlcGill as a pre-med undergraduate. Best of I.uck always! We'll
miss va kid! (4,5.8.!)
Joey Sheldrake has spent 1 1 years at S1V1U (2 weeks longer than anyone else) which qualifies him as
a "lifer". Joey has played on every rugby team in the school and excelled at all levels of the game.
He traveled to Australia, New Zealand and F-'iji and enjoyed rowing in Aukland with C.B. Off the
playing field, Joey seldom had classes but was often at the pediatrist via O'Donnal's. Abroad Joey
enjoyed sleeping on docks, nature walks behind church and doubling as Sylvester. The hot tub in
Sidney, B.C. took a lot out of Joey and he never quite regained it. Joey hates "wastes of oxygen"
and "vv'astes of space" on the smaller road trips or the major road trips. Joey excelled at keeping
up with Alex, Simon and Jill. Joey hates Yankees of all types and feels free to express his opinion,
which is generally pleasant and thoughtful. Among Joey's memories with the South Oak Bay Boys
was a field trip iip B.H. and then to a parking lot downtown. Thank you Joey and the Terrain
Bobcat for your excellent service and friendship. Good Luck with the R.C.M.P.
Simon Song, presently from Bandung, Indonesia, has been here since grade 9. This unbeatable
badminton player will remember International House, Lumpi, Mr. Williams' impersonation ot
John Wayne, and the Chatham Island camping trip. He shall be remembered for his incredible
wrestling prowess, stockpiUng oranges, and his Chinese music. Next year he intends to go to an
eastern university, probably Carleton, where he was awarded an entrance scholarship to use his
industrial scholaristic ability to study Engineering.
Simon Bradlev Spencer has been a member of the SMU boarding community since grade eight.
Although he was not appointed a prefect in his final year. Brad was honoured with a position as
"senior" of International House. He was also given the enviable task of "being in charge of
VCRs", thus proving himself as a social organizer. Brad was also "sports manager" of In-
ternational House and justified his position by participating in third and fourth fifteen rugby (nice
hair Brad) and first eleven soccer. Academically speaking, the ever humble Brad will be qiiick to
boast about his geography prizes (gr. 8,9,10) and his early promotion out of Miss Lee's English 1-
but quick to forget about his stint in gr. ten top French. "Spaz" will be remembered around the
boarding house for his neatness (or lack of it) and his hogging of the phone (even at 4 a.m.).
Although always employing a casual approach to life. Brad has tound his share of embarrassing
moments. (Namely: a camp Thunderbird display in front of Shelly and an unexpected trip to the
museum with Will', Kyman and Jamie). He's also has his share of good times (geography prizes in
grades 8,9,10, parties, and grad) and bad times (no geography prize m grades 11 and 12 and grad
(?))! Just remember, Bradley, some of us still think you're O.K.!
To Mall, life at SMU provoked some overpowering questions: "Where, then, has Miss Hurdle
gone? Why are all these people sleeping during English class? What is this feeling of catharsis after
some physics classes?" Ah, but in this shadow of obscurity lie some revelations: after all the
preparation for Grade twelve, he feels he has learned how to read. Although sure he is doomed to
be remembered as someone from Port Townsend who spent a ridiculous amount of time to gain a
few petty inconsequential marks, he would like to be remembered as middle-class. What he shall
be remembered for is his clear insight, frightfully unpretentious and rich conversation, sincere
interest in science and photography and his knowledge of when to buy strawberries. Despite his
tendency to abstract, Matt's view of the future is solid: Perhaps he will get married, have children,
then old age will fall (THUD!) and with it either increased wisdom or complete senility, then he
will die. Until then. Matt goes to University of Washington to study mathematics and other
subjects. He has no additional comment to make, everything has surely already been said if it's
Gosta is a brilliant and innovative thinker. His survival at SMU has the result of an incorrigable
fight for sincere self-expression and the passionate defense of what is "true" and "real". This
child among fools declares that he will attempt for the rest of his life to battle the vague grandeur
of his romantic inclination. When asked what he plans on doing with his life, he states "to ap-
proach the limit of spiritual enlightenment." In the near future Gosta plans on travelling to
Europe for a year, and then on to Harvard where he will study the arts and pure sciences. He is a
nationally acclaimed debater, prolific artist and writer. He is particularly proud of his con-
tribution to the sets of West Side Story '85. When asked what he will remember about the school,
he states "location 124'W 48'20N and Mr. Featherstone likes Marllach Scotch." Obviously SMU
has not broken Gosta. My dear friend, you are the poet among poets. Let your mind and heart run
free - together as one. I wish you more happiness than 1 wish myself, for you have a greater battle
to fight. But perhaps you've already won it. Final abdictatory quotation: "The birds are all dead,
it is Nero, Nitzche and Oedipus who still live among us." O. Wilde.
Judith-Ann, an Albertan in exile in Victoria, came to SMU in grade 10. Though she devoted a
slavery to the Tuckshop, she managed to remain one of the most genuinely cheerful and friendly
people in the school. On top of this Judith sang with SMU singers and festival singers during the
week and danced around on the cast of West Side Story on weekends. Judith was also a member of
the girls basketball team. She will especially recall driving her boarder friends around in the Boat
and making a rocky road cheese cake (which took 6 months but was delicious). Apple-Raisin-
Cheeks will never forget the West Coast Trail and slug alert, long rides with Forrest on milk
cartons, reading Lady Chatterly's lover to Julian in sick bay, making Dave's bed during Wed-
nesday spares, picnics outside Mr. Mclntyre's history class with Michael, grade 8 sex education on
slave day, her parties with Barb, Shannon and Jane, raiding the Tuckshop for rock stickers with
Nicole, putting gum in Alan's bellybutton with Barb, visiting the Gym family, going on the grad
ski trip, blue drinks, Hcrshey's kisses and lamb chops!!! (And she went to school too?) Thanks for
An immigrant from the like tropical city of Kula Lumpur, Malasia, Helen spent her first year in
grade 12 at wild and wacky SMU. Taking advantage of her daily bicycle ride to school, Helen
could ofteji be seen battling the "vindictive" Victoria wild, peddling while calculating the resistive
wind velocity (ha, ha). Helen became well known for her singular ability to confuse Mr. G. in
Calculus and for her knack of posing obvious-after-it's-been-asked-but- often-equally-answerable
questions in science lectures. She remembers J.B. attacks in hallways, Mr. Gardiner's wrath and
piercing stare (used exclusively during interrogations - skipping games etc . . .), being able to carry
on logical conversations after Chem 12 class and the trauma of megahomework. Think twice
before taking seven subjects and Socials 1 1 by correspondence adviseth she. Having exhausted Mr.
Wilson's supply of university applications (if that's possible), Helen has decided to study .Ar-
chitecture at IVIcGill. One of the few people who wrote anything specific on their grad sheet, Helen
says that after university she is going to marry a zillionaire, live in Beverly Hills and do aerobics
with Jane Fonda. Right.
l-Apccliin; iho typical iiilroduclory SMU stud^.■n^^ quoslion lo be about "the latest model of
llewlet'l' Packard calculator"', it was a very pleasant shock for Nicole lo be conlronted by Barb
and Shaniioti in the middle of the quad and asked the more important questions in life. Nicole will
remember studying at U.Vic, Sidney Island, the bathtub and the ice machine at the Village Cirecn,
being t'.T. in Beacon Hill park (" Ihc bubble's leaking!"), Saltspring and the Holy Cirail, two
weeks at Andy's, and food fights at MclO's. She will be remembered for her foreign language upon
leiurning from a Mc'happening Outdoors Week sunlan trip, procrastinating with Barb (oink,
prrrl, being B. & C.'s puppeteer (quack), making up incredible excuses after Iriday and Saturday
outings, never being caught in I.H., and of course, who could forget, her multicoloured and
diversely patterned cast. Nicole recalls rating Mr. P's jokes ("You're slipping"), a Saltspring
Island road trip, eating an entire "Volcano" at J.J.'s, trekking through chest-deep powder on the
(irad ski trip, being prepared at all times in the search for Herald Street Cafe, Judith and the
rocksticker collection, and Tim's leather bow tie. Remembered quotes arc: "let me take that
sliver out, my dad's a doctor", "We can lake a taxi!", and "He always does this to us!!!" linally,
Nicole requested that it be made known that she is not Cath's bad influence, but rather her saving
Michael Van Lijt"
Born downunder in Sydney, Australia and later brought to Victoria, Mike spent five long years at
SMU and became active on many of the school teams. At 6'4", he was a key player on the senior
basketball team which ranked 6th in the province at the end of the season. Mike will remember the
trip to Kamloops, coach Bill and Brady, and the noisy games at Claremonl; but his teammates will
remember him as a winner of the pink lamb award. Mike was also a top player on the unbeaten
cricket team - his intimidating bowling style and consistent batting expertise won him a spot on the
Victoria under 19 team. Mike also played on the rugby and tennis teams and was a member of the
swim team. However, Mike's greatest talent lay as a 'boat racer' on the Capitistic Exploiters, and
he did enjoy the occasional game of golf at 4 in the morning. Another favorite sport was
recreational sunbathing where he received an excellent sunburn and was often mistaken for a
lobster. He will not soon forget taking the boarders out for ice cream or being given balloons by a
gorilla on the way to Sooke. Mike's ambitions are to get rich, work only 3 days a week and play
golf. Good luck at Western, and keep in touch.
The Enlightenment of Mike Wale: "Why, Joey?" Mike asked. Why, when nobody else is left
from our Grade 2 class, should we go back?" "For the Enlightenment," Joey replied, "You know
that! For SMU Enlightenment in house and form and field." "Yes, 1 know," said Mike sadly, "I
let myself forget - I feel ashamed." He started to cry. "Sorry Joey, but I feel out of place, like
when 1 came to school dressed as a plumber and realized it wasn't Dress-up Day." Overhearing
this, Claudia gave a witch-like laugh. Mike sobbed. Joey cheered him, reminding him of his Grade
6 position as Grade 1 Monitor and his seventh-grade prefectship. Mike smiled and said, "I feel
better."/ Grade 12 passes and Mike's legendary photography skills earned him the Head of
Yearbook Photography position and acceptance at Ryerson to study photographic arts. But
ignorance still tortured him. He wondered how many people the Enterprise could beam down at
once; Yes, he still needed Enlightenment. Finally it is his time: he searches for his diploma and is
suddenly surrounded by the soothing light of specters and no longer does Star Trek perplex him.
The Specters leave and Mike sees his future as a world-famous photographer. He smiles and says,
"I feel good."
Darryl West, a School House prefect, rotted his last four years of high school at St. Michaels. His
memories of the school include friends, hard work, and the temperature of Oak Bay. The little
gumbies will remember and appreciate his laxness with his computer. The rest of us will never
forget his comics of Miss Hyde, his accurate lip-synchs (especially of AC-DC's "Back in Black"),
or his abilitv to never hand assignments in on time. When he was asked what he wanted to do with
the rest of his life, his reply was "1 WANNA ROCK!" Well, as soon as he's finished rockin'. he's
going to become an engineer at Queens, and fritter away his life in indecision. He hasn't done
anything amazing or wonderful, at least not today. Perhaps his indecision is the result of desert
heat, since he spent a few years in Libya, and currently resides in Saudi Arabia. Darryl, have a
great life, and don't you forget about me! (shifty) - E.A. Poe
Christina Anne Williams coming from the boomin metropohs of Lytton, B.C., attained a quite
well-rounded education in her 3 years at SMU. She will remember the late nights with her roomies.
Christa was an avid participant in sports. As Wenman house captain she lived up to her title by
participating in volleyball, basketball, soccer (How was Kelowna?), track and field, and of course
the X-country team will not forget her. As for recreational sports she will be remembered for
slashing (or was it thrashing) the slopes of Whistler/ Blackcomb. After sports she found time to
make a short appearance with the symphonic winds, and seemed to be very sad to leave them.
Despite popular belief Christa proved to be very studious. She sacrificed many late nights to her
studies, German seeming to be her favorite. After making it to her grade 12 year she decided to
join numerous 'organizations'. Besides being a feverent tea and toast addict and a soapie she
became one of the lucky members of MRK's harem as well as a member of the famed "Gym
Family", as baby gym. Good luck ne.xt year at the unacceptable institution (University) and
muchos luck to you always. Take care - we'll miss you!
Troy Young, from Regina, Saskatchewan, has made steady academic progress and will continue
his education in Ontario at either Western Ontario, Toronto or Queen's with the latter his most
likely choice. Troy will study Commerce in preparation for a career in the business world.
Paul Bu.xton, our resident Australian exchange student from Southport on the Gold Coast, spent a
relaxing si.x months at SMU. The future looked promising when on the first day he spent his first
six classes at Sambo's accompanied by the so far unheard of opposite se.x. Although Paul
frustrated his teachers with his 'joie de vivre' attitude in class, he did make his mark on the track
competing on the Victorious 4 \ 100 m team and individually in the 400 meter. However, Paul's
biggest contribution came on the cast of West Side Story where he played the hotheaded jet,
'Action'. Paul also volunteered a large part of his time to painting the banners for the M.S. drive.
Among Paul's vivid memories must be the first time he saw snow and his ensueing infatuation on
the grad ski trip (nice hat, eh?). On the lighter side, Paul will always remember being called a bully
by Mr. Schaffter for throwing water on Ifor. So what does the first Australian preppie plan to do
when he gets downunder? Why own an island, become a professional wind surfer and have
children named Bruce and Sheila, of course. Actually he plans to attend University and gain a
degree in sports medicine. Good luck Paul, we'll miss you.
Andrew is a lost soul. He arrived in Victoria after the twelve hour flight (excluding connections)
from Heathrow. Andy has been quoted as saying, "1 think 1 made the right choice, but right now.
that connecting flight to Hawaii sounds mighty nice!" Andy's parents still have no idea where he is
at this moment, but the Norton bobbies in North Yorkshire (Cleveland - .^AGH!) ha\e been
notified of his disappearance, and are presently keeping Dr. and Mrs. Craig posted on any in-
formation which may lead to Andy's whereabouts. Back in Victoria, golfing, tennis, skiing,
sailing, squash, partying, sleeping, spazzing-out, and being down-in-the-dumps seems to be the
extent of Andy's existence. This commitment to academics astounds many of his devout followers
who have been heard to chant frequently, "Sometimes you've just gotta say, 'What the @*#$!"'.
At the beginning of his stay, Andy could be found with the usual cabal: T.H., P.B., S.P., and
"guy" himself. This love-in has since degenerated into a cozy couple - as a result of which, Andy
cannot decide whether Brown Hall or the Prevost's kitchen is the hand that feeds him. In the
meantime, our thoughts turn towards Pembroke; "Ye fields of Cambridge, our dear Cambridge,
say/ Why have ye let this sod amongst ye today?" (P.S. 1985)
liiia llackiny, Ironi C'akly, Mcrseysidc, Lngland and Hiiwcll's School, Denbigh, N. Wales, came

Dearest llor (pronounced .Mihhyver), armed at Victoria via london, England on Ihe 12 p.m.
llighl ol a typical rainy .lanuary night. He immediately asked: "WHO are you? WHERE arc \vc
going? HOW?" and of course "WH^?". Very soon, however, this most proper English bloke
became a very active member ot the school community and a great friend ol H.J. P. Schalltcr. As
a true Embassador Irom the U.K., Ifor visited London, Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle, Quebec and
several cvotic resorts in Mexico in a space of only three months. He shall remember skiing on
Mount Washington (avec his corn-patriots), baby-sitting the "White House" and looking at
photos during Elistory class, not to mention the multiple scientific discrepencies with P. Gardiner.
He plaved the clarinet with the school band and was part of the W.S.S. orchestra. He made our
SLiPER school even more super with his participation in the (.MME, AWSME) and the Canadian
Oivnipiad math contests. He supervised twenty kids on the Robertson II "Voyage". Ifor will
always be remembered for his stiff upper lip and his inexhaustable questions. Remember staring
into each other's eyes in Brown Hall? (I never meant; "You're sooo weird!"). We wish him all the
best of luck at Cambridge and "persecula seculorum".
In keeping with no tradition the Grad class
spontaneously decided to come dressed up as
nerds. We ail had great fun because we could
trade disks and talk about the latest versions
of Super Space Blaster and take our
Commodore 64's for walks and, golly
wizzickers, we even had calculator races on
the grass at recess. Prepared for the flood,
our disks spinning and our glasses repaired
with masking tape it was, well, nerdish.
A new but religiously observed tradition
in the school forced this year's graduating
class to dress up in sheets and pretend it
was a group of Romans. The class was
subsequently sold at bargain-basement
prices by Mr G., destroying our human
dignity for the sole purpose of making
money, lots of money.
Every year the graduaiing class decides to
visit a place such as Saltspring in lieu of
going to school. Desks and chairs aside,
this Grade twelve class decided to give
the school the air of happiness by
beautifying and redecorating the en-
vironment (with some help from
Givenchy, Vidal Sasoon and, of course,
Barbara and her parents for giving us
Sanctuary on Saltspring!).

This has been a year to relish for the 53 boys in School House. There
has been much hilarity and a few scrapes, but the predominant tone of
the house has been one of happy tolerance.
The customary parties and festivities have been held and been as silly
and hectic as ever. The external judge pronounced the evening of skits
a success, the Mastermind quiz produced the same winner as last year,
the Miss School House extravaganza unearthed some surprising
talents, the "air bands" were very noisy and the three-egg trick found
Andrew Bishop returned to London and was replaced as an assistant
housemaster by Greg Eng. Much is owed to Greg, to Michael Walsh
and to Darryl Phelan who all put so much into the job of
housemastering. In January, we were joined by Paddy Turner, fresh
from Watford and his willing enthusiasm has contributed much to the
life of this residence.
The Prefects, too, have done sterling work. Alan Aldrich, Julian
Kinston, David Lim and Darryl West have shown responsibility,
compassion and good humour throughout the year and my sincerest
thanks go to them.
^ ;a«* -'-■ «* >iM<;rt*#'-. -• £,««i jgiscii^j
ll has been a very satisfactory year lor International House and the ehiel' reason for it has been the great advantage we have enjoyed in
having a really great crowd of guys and a first-class team of Prefects. The place is always basically clean and on Thursday and Sunday
evenings (for a short while at least!) tidy. We work with just a few basic and immutable guidelines for behaviour and conduct and a lot of
good common "dog". As a result, the operation has remained peaceful, low-key and friendly.
Brad Spencer puts on his home movies at the drop of a hat. Having at last wrangled our very own VCR, we can now put on cassettes of a
weekend without bothering the other Houses. Brad also keeps a supply of sports gear moving, something which is most helpful particularly
during the summer season.
Matt Stewart continues to serve us all very well with his periodic administrative assistance and his daily handling of early prep lists.
This year again we are hosts to three overseas visitors, exchange students from England, Andrew Craig and Ifor Samuel and from Australia,
Paul Buxton. They have quickly become used to the old place and iriade many new friends both in the school and out of it.
From time to time we've accommodated the odd day student when family and other personal circumstances suggest it would be helpful. One
of them. Bill Dawson, is now in residence as a full-time border if you please! This is a very pleasing and a very interesting development.
All in all it's been a good year for everybody associated with the House. When Mr. Tony Wilson had to move over to Vancouver to take up a .
position with a well-known law firm, we were lucky in finding David Crossley to leap in for him.
Mr. Rhodri Samuel joined us in September from Wellington College, England. He is a great rugger player and buff and a veteran biologist.
We'll be indeed fortunate if we can do as well this year as we did last when it comes to Assistant Housemasters . . . and "hairy dogs". Yes,

Harvey House Girls
The second floor of Harvey House had been an extremely busy place this
year. Everyone has special memories of . . . trying to sneak muffins from

A busy, bustling year with so much going on, it amazes me that through
it all the smiles and good humour prevail. Our Harvey House family
consists of twenty boys grades four to seven. A highly successful blend of
personalities and talent. We have budding song-writers, poets, artists
and computer wizards - cool guys and not so cool guys. We have (Heaven
forbid) a dorm full of marvellous grade sevens who never seem to get
enough to eat, never seem to get enough money, never seem to get
enough sleep and yet manage to grow and care and grow and laugh and
grow and grow!
Ski trips, camp-outs, fishing expeditions, ropes course at Thunderbird, a
wonderful Halloween - the plunder lasting until Toothache or X-mas.
Picnics on Fridays - Taco Time, Shaun's spine-chilling stories and
Christine and Lisa as beautiful Big Sisters. The year was one in which we
all "grew" and had opportunities to care for each other. Indeed, a
special year with special people.
To Mr. Goodwin, Miss Keziere, Mr. Nahh as (Resident StafO, Lawrence
Leake, Richard Shutte, Shaun McElroy (House Prefects), Lisa Gaede,
Christine Duke (Big Sisters) and Marc June (Dorm Monitor) go my
heartfelt thanks for duties carried with humour, integrity and endless
patience. I know we will all remember this year with pride.

I he chapel continued its role at the center and heart of school life.
Religious and secular, if such a distinction can be made, thrived
side by side in the special Katiniavik which brings all students of
differing faiths and creeds together under one roof as members of
one family. Participation by the student body in the services grew
steadily to the extent that the expression 'our chapel' was more
frequently heard and sincerely meant. The sharing of talents by
string quartet players, soloists, groups, bands and choirs enhanced
greatly the assemblies. The real warmth of the chapel, however,
derived from the entire student body singing hymns and songs
more enthusiastically, listening to readings from a variety of
sources more attentively, and responding to the presence that
speaks of the joy of being together. For the boarders, the Passing
of the Peace symbolized the togetherness of the school family.
Staff members became more and more involved in services, not
only by their support in attending but also through their active
participation in dramatizations, the presentation of readings, and
performance of choral items.
I wish to extend congratulations to Ed Arden, .Andrew and
Stephen Barrett, Tim Edgar, Anna Fotheringham, Philip Quinn,
James Stone and .Adrian Walkins all of whom were prepared for
Confirmation during the course of the year. My thanks go to Miss
Thompson, Mr. MacKay and Mr. Takoski for their work will all
who performed in the realm of music in the chapel. Finally, my
warmest thanks are reserved for Michael King (Verger), Barbara
Broughton, Jim Grove, Shannon Hill, Paul Moreau and Lindsey
Pollard (Wardens) for their assistance, cooperation and friendship
throughout the year.

Au debut de fevrier, vingt-quatre etudiants de S.M.U.
acconipagncs de deux professeurs sont alles a Saint

passe une semaine chez des families quebecoises, a
visiter les usines et a s'amuser aux discotheques. On a
passe une journee entiere dans la Ville de Quebec
pendant le Carnaval oil tout le monde s'est bien amuse,
surtout au concert — acid rock — d'Offenbach. Les
Quebecois nous ont visite au mois de mars quand nos
etudiants leur ont montre Victoria. Nous savons que
nous garderons de doux souvenirs de cet echange
pendant bien longtemps.
On March 10, 30 Grade 9 students were privileged to
visit Quebec City in an Open-House Canada Exchange.
The billets, as the students were called, all went to the
same school: Quebec High School. Every morning, we
would travel to school with our billets to find out
exactly what we were doing for the day. We went to
many interesting places such as the Chateau Fortenac,
The National Assembly, Le Grand Theatre and Ste.-
Anne-de-Beaupre. They came to Victoria on April 7 and
visited many places including Vancouver for a day. The
exchange ended April 14 and many new friends were
made. Thanks should go to Mrs. Booth for her won-
derful effort and organization.
During the first four days of our Mexico Tour, Misters
Peach and Keble and the thirty other SMU students stayed
at the Luxurious (!) Hotel Metropol in very downtown
Mexico City - "Leaving the hotel after dark, do NOT turn
right!" With our guide Raphael (who certainly sounded
defensive to me) and the insane bus driver Domitilo, we
saw the beautiful architecture and sights that the city
offers. Equally eye-opening was the incredible poverty in
which so many people live. Mexican driving habits were
terrifying as was the troglidytic Mexican concept of ef-
ficiency. After two days in the cobblestoned tropical
relaxation of the silver town of Taxco, we were off to the
sandy (and hot) beaches of Acapulco and Ixtapa. I'll
always remember bodysurfing in the breakers, cooling
myself by the pool with a pina colada in hand, vendors on
the beach, billions of pesos, bouganvilla, "Thank you all
for arriving on time, I DO appreciate it", JAL Exec. Class
and all the great people with whom I had such a good time.

Most veteran students at SMU will groan and whine at the
mention of a "Costume Day", but this year there was an
innovation: the TEACHERS came dressed up, some even
in costume! As usual, prizes were awarded: Betsy Donald
for the tackiest (with her plastic dog on a string), Bart Reed
for most original (complete with vegetables and a good
supply of essential proteins) and Mr. Ken Smith for the
best teacher (enormously fat).

To make sure that the students of SMU do not leave the
school without receiving that "Polished Edge", Mr. and
Mrs. Jones once again gave ballroom dancing lessons to
the grade twelve students. We learned not only the
traditional waltz (left - forward • right - perpendicular - left
- together), but also the foxtrot, Gay Gordon's, and the
infamous conga! Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Jones. We shall
always be moving lightly and nimbly in a counterclockwise
Aha! An SMU Spring Fair tooic place this year, but how could we
tell? Perhaps it was the noise, the mess, the games, the music, the
talking, the fuses blowing, the displays, the food, the money.
Madam Moth's, the Haunted House, or even the hours of
preparation which made the fair obvious. With Westside and Old
Boy's Weekend running concurrently, we had a whirlwind of a
time. Nonetheless, people did help out in healthy numbers to make
it a day to remember. Staff, students, and parents helped make
individual efforts into a fair, but special mention must go to Mr.
Keble, without whose help the fair would not have turned out the
way it did.

Last year's "New Heights" attained in debating were out-
done this year by the SMU team. The year began with the
Newman FISA Tournament in which Meg Tassie and Ana
Escobedo did particularily well. The following tournament
was the Ravenshurst, in which we (without the help of the
grade twelves) took the cup for the first year. At the Van-
couver Island Regionals, in the Senior Division Goesta
Struve-Dencher placed second over all while in the Junior
Division, Emil Lee and Nonalee Dong were outstanding. As it
turned out, the majority of the SMU team, both Junior and
Senior, qualified for the Provincial Tournament. At the
Provincials Goesta once again placed very highly - second in
B.C. and top throughout Vancouver Island - but he had gone
to the Nationals the previous year, so the honour of going to
the Nationals in Montreal went to Ana, who was eighth o\er
all, and second on the Island. Our gratitude and affection is
sent to our coach Mr. Featherstone, who saw us through thick
and thin, but unfortunately was eating lunch at the time of
The rourtccnth Siudciu Commonwealth conference lasted three
days and included 36 students from both private and public
schools. The most important part of the conference was the
"Agenda items" dealing with education in Africa. The participants
also had a lot of h\n with Steven Kasapi and his "international
game". The weekend had many highlights, including Ken Oppel's
ecclesiastical service, James Curtis' intriguing topics for the im-
promptu speeches, Gosta Struve-Dencher's eloquence as the
chairperson, Meg Tassie's exquisite lasagna dinner and Ana just
for being herself. Of course, the "SMUPER" school did very well
with Meg Tassie winning an all-paid trip to Ottawa to participate in
the National Commonwealth Conference. In retrospect, the
conference was an enjoyable experience.
A Spitting Image
One evening, around seven o'clock, I was sitting in the SLR
with about ten other people. Quite unexpectedly, a man
walked in. He was a very pleasant-looking man with a black
beard and wild curly hair. WE didn't know what he was
doing here, but we thought we'd better humour him.
Anyway, as it turned out. his name was Mike Gluss and he
was here to teach us all about black-and-white
photography. First we learned about all the parts to a
camera. This included a lot of complex theory regarding all
sorts of ratios. .After this, we learned how to load film into
the camera. We were also instructed how to take a good
photograph. .According to Mike, this involved opening the
shutter and whirling the camera around your head many
times. We all began to feel rather sorry for Mike. Then, he
taught us how to develop our film and make prints from the
negatives. This was by far the best pan of the course:
watching a picture suddenly appear on a previously blank
piece of paper is fascinating! Mike thought it was magic but
we told him it was just the chemicals. Hopefully .Mike will
continue to teach this course in photography; however.
considering his recent run-ins with the law regarding five
thousand dollars worth of parking tickets, this seems fairly
unlikely. .A cibachrome course was also offered.

This year's ski season has been longer
than usual with ski trips running from
November to May; the climax being
the grade twelve long weekend ski trip
when 108 students attacked the slopes
of Whistler and Blackcombe. A good
time was had by all despite certain
unpleasantries being 'brought up' on
one particular bus-ride. On future ski
trips, Mr. Piete will no doubt miss the
familiar face of Stephen Dawson, w ho
partook in almost every ski trip for the
past 3 years. Bye Stephen, and thanks

The Vocal Jazz Group, nuiiibeiing only cighl people at first performance (but soon growing to twenty-seven),
turned out regularly to sing more complex, but definitely jazz, numbers. Their concert numbers were diligently
rehearsed through September and October for their first formal "gig" at the Empress Hotel. Just before
Christmas Exams, twelve DEVOTED singers gave up their free time to literally throw together a few Christmas
carols which were to be presented at Craigdarroch Castle; they even attempted the Allelujah Chorus when no-
one was looking. The last, and definitely most enjoyable, performance was for the students, contributing to the
end-of-term exam spirit felt through the school.
Giving them no time to wake up after their long Christmas sleep. Vocal Jazz rehearsals became the immediate
demand for the singers for the first half of the second term. Every day, plus extra practice Wednesdays, they
practiced either ensemble or in sectionals. In preparation for their ultimate aim - the festival at UVic - the singers
were trucked off to Esquimalt to work with the equipment there. The date was fast approaching, parts were
carefully smoothed over, the quartet psyched for their solos, the energy high. On the morning of the 20th of
February, the SMU Vocal Jazz bounded into the Chapel and performed their three numbers. They maintained
their initial enthusiasm to stun the UVic audience with their spirit. They did as well as they possibly could with
their limited performance experience and the adjudicator was kind.
But this wasn't the end of the Vocal Jazz, for they graciously came out of retirement in the third term to do one
last gig at the Spring Concert, which turned out to be one of their best performances. Stemming from the
original Vocal Jazz Group, a male chorus was formed to honour the Grade .XII voices which we'll be losing next
year. They put together the ever-popular "Only You."
Impressed by last year's trial run of a Grade XII
Vocal Jazz Quartet, and determined to make it a
traditional custom in the music program, this
year's gifted four were self-organized and, much
of the time, self-rehearsed. Lindsey Pollard,
Aarrynne Dokken, Tim Lowan and Alan Aldrich
took their own time to rehearse their catchy
numbers, similar renditions of which often can be
found on Nylons and Manhatten Transfer
albums. They performed their four part harmony,
"doo-op" style number at the Empress,
Craigdarroch Castle and gave a great display of
not only vocal, but also theatrical talent, as they
entertained their friends at the end-of-school

The Symphonic Winds, under the direction of Mr. Al McKay, is actually the school band and is distinguished by
the contempory pieces it performs. They meet, ensemble, only once a week, the Grade 8's and 9's having band
classes during the week. Performing three times in the first term, their peers and parents received them warmly;
indeed echoing through the school were whispers of "Where have they been all this time?"" and "This is OUR
Practices for the SMU band were increased to twice a week during the second term in order to learn the material
more quickly. Eventually, it paid off as their concert at the Junior School was remarked as being "very good."
Doing well in the Victoria Festival, the concert band also played in the Spring Concert but, after April, con-
vocation was their goal.

The Stage band met this year at 7:30 A.M. every Tuesday, and with sleepy eyes prepared tunes from Swing to
Rockabilly. The rewards of their effort were an "excellent" mark in the local music festival and a good mark in
the West Coast Jazz Festival.
Other performances this year were in chapel for the school, demonstration night, a junior school performance,
the spring fair, the Empress Hotel, and our spring concert.
The band looks forward to a successful year coming up and should be playing many performances. A job well
West Side Story
Ambition (and enthusiasm) was high this year in the
undertaking of dynamic WEST SIDE STORY. Lead by
three outstanding male voices, Tim Lowan (Tony), Alan
Aldrich (Bernardo) and Julian Kingston (RifO, the
production highlighted the back street youths of New
York, their rivaling gangs and their morals. Their girls, in
appropriate 50's attire, were lead by Nonalee Dong
(Maria), a stunning newcomer to SMU theatrics, and
Lucinda Komisar, the perfect Anita.
Six months of unforgettable, unrelenting, choreography
and early morning rehearsals finally paid off (despite the
efforts of the orchestra and smoke machine to derange
everyone on stage). The show, starring forty students and
four members of staff was a hit, from the colourful
"Dance at the Gym" to the tear-jerking finale.
Thank you all for your time, patience and support - most
especially Mr. Skinner, Kim Brieland and Miss Thompson.
Ya dun good, buddyboys!

"LIBERIE, FRATERNITE, EGALITE"
Nous y attendions pour diffuser la langue fran^aise partout dans le college, pour assurer a nos camarades une
experience culturelle, pour interpreter dans toute sa grandeur le vrai maitre du theatre frangais - Moliere - ainsi
que pour representer la comedie du siecle, d'une fai;on quand meme un peu exaggeree!
Le rideau se leve pour reveler Marline affaissee au milieu de la scene, y precipitee par Dieu ne salt qui. Le
coupable? Qui d'autre que Sganerelle, son mari, ce bucheron debauche, le medecin malgre lui? Voila le debut
d'une piece qui va assurement clouer les spectateurs a leur siege. A mesure que Taction se poursuit on fera la
connaissance des domestiques, des paysans, d'un brave amoureux, du compere Geronte, et de sa belle jeune fille,
Lucinde qui provoquera toute Taction, (comme dans la vie, il s'agit toujours des belles filles . . .) Et puis, enfin,
a la suite des situations monstrueuses et des plaisanteries hilares, la belle demoiselle est delivree (selon les
exigences de la tradition), et le public lache des cris dechirants, et nous sommes exaltes, tout en sachant que nous
avons reussi a faire voir au monde le vrai frani;ais - la liberte, la fraternite, et Tegalite!
Le rideau tombe, puis nous partons a la reunion des acteurs pour feter notre soulagement en goutant des
croissants arroses de vin et en savourant le bon parfum des Gauloises ... la \eriiable piece de resistance!

The school was represented by two teams in the Lower Vancouver Island Badminton League: An 'A' team with
players from SMU only and a team of SMU boys combined with a team of girls from St. Margarets School.
SMU finished at the top of the league, undefeated for the second consecutive year. The combined team placed
fourth in the league, an outstanding effort. These results qualified both teams for the playoffs for representation
at the Provincial Tournament. SMU placed first and fourth in the playoff matches. Unfortunately the draw was
such that the 'A' team had to eliminate the 'B' team in the first round of play. At the B.C. High Schools
Provincial Tournament SMU placed sixth.
In Independent Schools play, SMU entered for the first time this
year a full girls team, with students in grades eight and nine added
to the senior team. The junior team placed second, an outstanding
result considering the lack of experience of these young players.
The older girls won the senior division.
Many thanks to all the players - especially those who gave up part
of their Christmas holiday to 'suffer' a training clinic. Special
congratulations to Simon Song and John Chan, the 'A' doubles
team; they have not lost a match in two years of High School
League play. Also thank you to Elizabeth McLeish who has so ably
captained the girl's team.

For the occasional hoop
But tough D in your face
Was our hustling point guard
Sweet Cathy Case
Alas, lor our damsels
Twas not to be
And despair that we lost
Albeit so narrowlv
A talented crew
Of jump shooting lovelies
Five 12's, three 1 1's
And Melanie Dovey

Our number 15
She popped the odd jumper
Why thank you, Christine
Cause Dunsmuir had 31

Can you imagine
A margin so fine?
With hustle and handwork
They did try to please
The demanding twosome
Messrs Hyde-Lay and Rees
A dazzling duo
At guard we had Christa
And manning the wing spot
Belle Pam. Christa's "sista"
But not to worry
The year was a beaut
So lucky to coach
'loung ladies so cute
No ball cuts, shoot early
And defensive poses
A basket backdoor
Alas - no dozen roses
And then there was Mel
Our young grade 10 scream
Tell her we will go
With the guy's team
So to Judith and Christa
Pam. Caih and Ann
Best luck in the future
From your number 1 fan
Our offence worked so so
Yes - sporadically
But I'll say this for the ANGELS
They played the tough D
For last but not least
A most loveable Swan
3 quick points v Brentwood
Judith .Ann - that was bon
But Meris and .\lel
Jane and Christine
We must work like Trojans
To improve next years team
But when baskets were needed
Twas a drive down the lane
Or maybe a jumper

Third in the league
And oh what a pity
We just failed by a jot
To capture the City's
So get to the gym
Make haste, don't delay
Practise crossover dribbles

It was on to plan B

Who deser\es quite a hand
We made the Islands
Cause we'd beaten Parklands
Don't think I'm honkers
I'll give you the reason
Cause before you know
It'll be time for ne\t season
Or it was Meris
Shooting touch of pure silk
Baseline and foulline
23 pts. a tilt

The Junior Boys Basketball season was one of highs and lows, joys and disappoimmenls. Following a slow slarl due lo the pressures ol
rugby, exams and a lengthy Christmas break, the team came together and made an excellent attempt to quality for the Island lOurnament.
But it was destined to fall just short.
Our city record finished at 5-5, encouraging since we had managed just a single win from our first fi\e games. This placed us sixth out of
eleven in a very competitive league. Catching fire at the right time, we played our best game of the year to defeat Shoreline 63-50 in the
plavoff quartei^finals. This set the stage for a semi-final match against powerful Colquitz, second in the league and winners of the annual
Police Tournament. They had beateii^ us 59-33 in league play, but we felt we had a legitimate chance to turn the tables in the rematch.
Regrettably, an off-court incident deprived us of Danny Duke, our defensive glue, and we bowed 44-28 in an ill tempered game. Still,
Colquitz outplayed us and lack of outside shooting again cost us heavily. Disappointed, we lost the next night to Central, and said goodbye
to our chances to make the islands. A win in the independent schools tournament the next weekend was only small consolation.
Still, great improvement was made in all areas of our game. We used aggressive defending unlike our opponent who used zones. At times our
defence was excellent; offence, however, takes longer to master and rarely could we score consistently enough to ensure a decisive victory. So
often lack of basic skills under pressure let us down.
The starting live was comprised of Bobby Ross, John Graf at guard, with Jeff Marshall, Hamish Greig, and Danny Duke at forward. .Ml
played well: Bobby at the point guard role, John and Danny providing the bulk of the
offence. Jeff and Hamish were invariably steady, battling taller opponents under the
boards. All, with hard work, could ha\e bright futures in the game.
If any of the above faltered, relief could be found in the form of Andrew Greig, Paul
Stapleton, Conan Purves, Wendell Laidley, and Paalo Campillo. All had their
strengths, and all improved considerably over the season, to the point where there was
little 10 choose between them and the starters. Rounding out the squad, Tony Osachoff,
Barnabas Clarke, and Sean Kelsey all worked hard and didn't let us down when called
My thanks. The group, though they could drive me to distraction, also gave me much
satisfaction and warm memories. I think they enjoyed the season. Hopefully they'll be
back to play some more. With this in mind, perhaps a word of warning. Competition
for the Senior Team next year will be more intense than ever, with probably in excess ol
15 players competing for 10 positions. So, work on your skills in the off season. By
failing to prepare, you are preparing lo fail. Thanks again and best ol luck.

Tis often said that patience is a virtue and nowhere was this more true than with the
grade eight basketball team. Raw and inexperienced, the team took numerous pre-
Christmas pastings in the night league. Slowly, however, under the sage tutelage of
coaches Wayne and Richard Cloulhier things took shape, and some good basketball
players began to emerge. Thus it was pleasing to tie lor first in the city league, and
make it to the play-off final, before losing a 52-50 double OT heartbreaker to
Lambrick Park. No real stars stood out. though Richard Pickard usually had a bit
more speed and athelticism than most of his opponents. Under the boards, Kai
Schmitt battled away, and possessed an excellent outlet pass, which ignited the fast
break. The rest all worked very hard, and obviously improved dramatically. Next
year this team will move up to the more demanding and competitive Junior Boy\
level. Hopefully they will show the same commitment - indeed BBall at SMU looks
an exciting proposition for at least the next few years.

This has been a rewarding season for the 1st \1. We started the term by playing a series of 20 over matches
against local club sides on Wednesday evenings. Despite rather cool weather the cricket was lively and the School
In the annual encounter against St. George's, we entered the arena of battle feeling confident. The XI looked
well-balanced and was keen in the field.
In Vancouver: SMU 101 for 6 wickets
St. Georges 86 for 7 wickets (DRAW)
In Victoria: SMU 134 for 4 wickets
St. Georges 39 all out (WIN by 95)
The highlights were Gavin Dry's innings with the bat (he scored 29 and 58 not out), Nick Tooke who scored 14
and 18 and also took 4 wickets for 10 runs in Victoria, Mike Van Lijf who scored two lO's, Paul Stapleton who
scored 13 and 22 not out, John Graf's score of 26 not out in Vancouver and Gavin Dry's bowling of 4 for 35 at
St. Georges. The fielding performance was excellent in both games. 1 was particularly pleased with the sharp
ground fielding and the catching.
The potential for 1986 looks outstanding.

1985 was a good summer for cricket in the Middle
, ^^ School. Once again we fielded 3 teams in the V.D.C.A.
" IH^- league. The teams were named the Corsairs, Buccaneers
and Bandits and they played appropriately swash-
buckling and enthusiastic cricket on their way to victory
in almost all of their matches.
The only serious defeat was against the formidable Staff

and in the final St. George's game, Gavin Waite turned in a startling performance at slow-medium pace to take 7
wickets for 31 runs. To all these bowlers James Stone kept wicket with courage and ever-increasing skill.
The confidence and unity of this team were impressive. They were eager in the field and supportive of each
other. It was a cracking season.

The senior cross-country team had a strong season this year, led by impressive
performances by team captains Blair King and Pam McCune. In City races the
senior boys finished third in Victoria while the girls placed fourth. Both teams
qualified for the Island Finals at Juan de Fuca Park. The boy's team placed third,
which qualified them for the Provincial finals. Unfortunately, the senior girls, who
had a hard time fielding a full team for each race, did not qualify. Special thanks to
Susy Reimer, Christa Williams, Jacqueline Cane, Tracy Fleck, and Meg Tassie. The
senior boys and Pam McCune went on to the provincials at Abbotsford where the
boys finished 13th in the province. The top male finishers were Blair, who placed
37th, and Alan, who had an impressive 77th from the starting field of 450. Other
Provincial finalists were Chuck Hemingway, Michael Hughes, Kelly Greenwell, and
Tom Jarecki. Pam McCune placed 52nd in the senior girls.
The most successful race for the girls team was at the ISA championship at Brent-
wood, where the girls placed first, led by Pam McCune's course record finish. Team
members were Pam McCune, Tracy Fleck, Tanis Laidlaw, Carole Fisher, and
Jacqueline Cane. The senior boys, crippled in mind but not in spirit (just a joke), ran
a shorthanded race and finished third, but Blair King did salvage some honour by
breaking the course record and winning the race. All in all this season, both teams
showed impressive spirit and dedication.
The Junior Cross Country season was rather disjointed due to Quebec trips and the
like, but the Junior Boys team placed 2nd in the city. Team members were James
Wale, Traves Lee, Mike Patterson, Chuck Hemmingway, and Steven Barrett. James
Wale placed 5th in the Island and Mike Patterson came 9th.

After losing all but six of last year's seventeen member squad, we were
delighted to welcome new talent to the team. Great enthusiasm and
effort were displayed by all the team members both in practice and in
league fi.xtures alike, and we ended our 1984 season with four vic-
tories, three defeats and one tie. This record, which placed us 4th in
the single A section of the Greater Victoria League, also qualified us
for the Vancouver Island Playoffs, in which we placed 5th,
As the season progressed the team showed great improvement. Such
progress was evident at the Independent Schools' Tournament in
which an outstanding team effort culminated in a second place finish.
We defeated Queen Margarets, Norfolk House and St. Margarets
before losing, in the final, to a very skilled and experienced team from
At the end of the season we had to face a team that was even tougher
than Brentwood College - the S.M.U. staff. Our match against our
favourite opposition, which left us with fond memories and indelible
bruises alike, was very exciting and ended in a 2-1 victory for the undefeated S.M.U. Staff.
On behalf of the team I would like to thank our coach, Mrs. Carey Trumpey, and our manager, Mr. Jeremy
Goodwin for their constant dedication and support throughout the season. In particular, I would also like to
thank the Vice Captain, Marlis Sawicki, who displayed both skill and leadership, and who will be sorely missed

V\ Ith thead\ent of girls in Grades VUI and l.\ il became possible lor the lirsl lime in ihe history of Ihe school to enter a team in the Victoria
Junior Girls' Grass Hockey league. The girls acquitted themselves admirably against competition that was both skilled and experienced. The
performance was even more creditable in that the team's practices were few and far between, most of the training in skills and positional play
being accomplished in class lime under the able instruction of Miss Lynn Beecroft to whom the team members owe a tremendous debt of
gratitude. It would be unfair to single out any members for special mention as the "stars" would not have shone had not the "lesser lights"
played their full, enthusiastic part. Suffice it to say, the team worked together as a team enjoying enough success to make the season
worthwhile as well as enjoyable. In league games the girls defeated a strong Lansdowne team and tied with Norfolk House. The best game of
the season was played against Norfolk House in the final of the consolation round of the City Tournament. The outcome was a convincing
win, the result of determined and well-executed play. All who represented the school during the season are to be congratulated on the ex-
cellence of their participation, skill and spirit.

The first fifteen enjoyed yet another successful season.
With most of the baci<hne returning from the year
before and with some i<ey forwards also returning the
school looked optimistically to the fall schedule. The
team certainly did, not disappoint us, as they strung
together some excellent wins against Club sides and
Independent schools. SMU was not a big side, but the
terrier forwards produced more than their share of good
ball and a very creative and fast backfield put the
finishing touches to some of the best tries seen at school
for many years. Apart from a very close encounter at
Shawnigan (7-7) all other schools were well and truly
dispatched, and SMU emerged winners of the In-
dependent Schools' Championship for the fifth
consecutive year. The final game of the term was played at Carnarvon Park because of the unplayable school
fields, and although the wind was high and the ground wet, the 1 st XV put on a magnificent display of attacking
rugby to the tune of - 42-0 - Brentwood were the unfortunate recipients. The ugly world of "sports politics"
ruined the second term as SMU was informed that it was not eligible for the Victoria High School Howard
Russel Cup and after so many years of contributing to the local rugby cause, it was indeed a cruel blow and a
bitter disappointment to the players. The 1st XV were compensated by the visit of George Watson School
(Scotland). The match was an exciting affair that went down to the last few minutes of play. It was a game SMU
should probably have won, but on the day they kicked their goals and we didn't. The final game of the year, was
without question, the highlight of the year. SMU were invited to pit their skills against the B.C. team that had
just returned from a very successful tour of the U.K. The game was to be played as an opener to the Tide-
Scotland encounter and for most of the boys it was the opportunity to perform in front of the biggest crowd of
their short rugby careers. SMU 1st .XV were certainly up to the occasion and the large crowd were receptive to
the high level of skill by both teams. To the amazement of even the most loyal of school followers SMU were
leading 15-3 at the half and were full value for the scoreline. Early in the second half Gareth Rees was removed
from the game with an injury and some of our composure left us. The final result was 30-18 for the B.C. Rep
Team, but it was a tremendous finish to the year and left us all with even more question marks about how we
would have played in the High School circle. Congratulations to Andrew Heaman and Gareth Rees who were
selected to the Canadian National Junior XV; to Mr. Walsh (1st .XV coach) and to Mr. Samuel (2nd XV coach)
for all their assistance during the year.

"When something strange is on the rugby pitch who you gonna call?"
The Second XV won the ISA championship for the second year in a row. The 'twos' managed to overcome a
weak start, an inexperienced back line and a multitude of injuries to emerge with a win-loss-tie record of 4-1-1.
The first game brought the shadow fifteen to sunny Vancouver, only to be narrowly beaten by St. Georges in a
hard fought game. Down in moral, we returned to Victoria to face Shawnigan on our 'home turf, but alas the
rain, wind and cold as well as a large hard hitting
Shawnigan team proved almost too much. A tie was
managed, but the team did not falter.
Under the direction of Rodri 'Boyo' Samuels
S.P.I.C.B.U.S. trained even harder, often staying out
longer than the First! On the road again we were led by
our Captain, Mark Penner, to our first victory. Next to
fall victim to our steadily improving team was St.
Georges. During our final away game up at Shawnigan
we lost two Scrum Halves and a good deal of
momentum. But we still came out on top despite our
opposition's valiant efforts.
The boys in black came down to Canarvon Park on a
cold windy day to give us our final match which soon
proved to be our best played as well. Tries were quickly
racked up by some very impressive plays, and the
forwards dominated every aspect of play. The team
finally came together to win the ISA championship with
the victory in the final game.
The team would like to thank Mr. Samuels, Mr. Walsh,
the referees, and especially the spectators vsho braved
the cold. A special thanks must also go the Ray Parker
Jr. for writing our theme song, "First Busters". Good
luck to those on the Second XV next year.

The 3rd Fifteen has become a force to be reckoned vvitli in independent schools rtigby. Often hampered by low
numbers and by 'calls' from the 2nd and 1st XV; the 3rd XV, nonetheless, fielded aggressive and competitive
players who developed unity and skill throughout the course of the season. We split with St. Georges, beat
Shawnigan and lost to Brentwood twice. Our record qualified us as second in the independent schools league,
which is best showing in recent years. My compliments must be extended to all the members of the 3rd/4th XV
squad for their unflagging enthusiasm, their sportsmanship in the face of adversity and their perseverence.
Without these qualities teams like the 3rd XV could not succeed, because unlike most teams in the school, they
tend not to have super-stars but rather have to rely entirely upon teamwork and commitment. Well done chaps!

In 1984 the 4th XV enjoyed its best season since 1970, finishing second
in the Independent Schools' League. The only losses came against
Brentwood where, even in defeat, the team was competitive. Against
St. George's and Shawnigan the 4th XV was clearly superior, scoring
56 points and allowing only 14. While establishing this fine record the
4th XV also accomplished its primary task, that of introducing
newcomers to the game of rugby. It is a measure of the success of the
team, and the enthusiasm of the players, to say that no less than 21
individuals appeared for the 4th's during the season. Well done

The Colts enjoyed a most successful season. Fourteen games were played and fourteen games were won. The
first term saw them involved in the Independent Schools Championship, and without question this was the
hardest part of the season. They scored comfortable wins over Shawnigan Lake and Brentwood both on a home
and away basis. Of particular note was the victory over Brentwood at Brentwood, where the Colts stunned the
opposition to the tune of 52-0. The calibre of rugby was of the highest order and exemplified a true fifteen a side
approach to attacking rugby.
The games against St. Georges were both nail biting affairs. The "unbrella brigade" (as they were affectionately
tagged) had not lost in three seasons, and we knew it
was to be a difficult task. S.M.U. emerged winners by
the closest of margins and in so doing carried off the
Independent Schools Championship for the fourth
There was no league structure at the City Junior High
level, but there was a Cup competition. The team was
re-assembled for this and played some attractive rugby
to get to the final where they emerged winners over
Lansdowne Junior High School 39-3. As representatives
of Victoria, the Colts travelled to Nanaimo for the
Island Championships. They won their way to the final
where they battled Alberni into a second overtime
period before recording a 13-4 victory.
The skill, dedication, character and pride were all in
evidence on all three occasions as they had been for the

For the first time ever, the Colts rugby group was able to tield three teams every Saturday. There was a com-
petitive spirit within the group and as the skill level improved selection became extremely difficult. After an
indifferent start to the season, with both the B's and C's losing to St. George's, we gained in momentum.
Shawningan and Brentwood were beaten and St. George's avenged. The final games of the season were at
Brentwood and a win in both games would guarantee a championship for the B's and C's. Unfortunately both
teams were beaten by a single point and the trophy slipped away. It had been a rewarding season in many ways.
All three teams were able to provide quality players to the Colts in times of injury and perhaps more importantly
there was a tremendous improvement in the skill level at Christmas. All the players will serve the Senior school
well in the next two years. Thanks to Mr. Rees, Mr. Jones, Mr. Hyde-Lay and Mr. Bennet for their time and
energy on our behalf.

The "B" team suffered a single unfortunate defeat by 4 points to
against St. George's which obliged them to share the I.S.A. "B" team
title with our friends from over the water. The "B" team had a robust
and aggressive pack led by captain Murray Anderson and the backs
scored many attractive tries.

pack produced an abundance of ball from all phases of forward play
and were never beaten up front. The backs, in consequence, lived a
life of lu.xury and exhibited speed, skill and tlair. In the final game of

points conceded by the "A" team in any independent schools game.

In terms of wins and losses, it was not a banner year for the U14 Rugby Squad, who, mainly due to lack of size,
suffered a number of heavy defeats in the Independent Schools matches. Yet, the season was not without its
bright moments as the team did manage to win the City "Mini-Rugby" (under 60 Kg.) tournament, defeating
Oak Bay and Mt. Newton in a round-robin final, not conceding a try in five games. Also, the 'B' team managed
to split its 6 games, defeating each of the other independent schools once.
Many players showed tremendous improvement, no one more than centre James Stone who captained the side
well in difficult circumstances, and who played with tremendous courage and skill in e\ery match. Others who
deserve mention are James Margison & Tyler Hadfield, neat fly-halves, prop Jason Wale, and flanker Dave
Klassen, who covered tirelessly and made countless tackles.
The future is certainly not as bleak as one might imagine
as the players grow.

The first XI had a deHghtful, unbeaten season and finished as

There are more talented players than Blair King, the captain, but
there are very few who are more industrious, whole-hearted and
courageous. Much of the credit for the success of the team must go
to Blair and his rampant enthusiasm.
John Graf and Frazer Leversedge are players of class and both
made massive contributions when able to play. John's first-minute
goal at St. Georges will be remembered by all who saw it, and
Frazer's skill and vision in midfield made opponents look
Bryan Bogdanski and Michael Hadfield scored fine goals; Paddy
Turner dominated his own goalmouth; Cameron Filmer ("Hat-

the team as a whole which was victorious, simply because they
played with and for each other as a team. There was a spirit in the squad in the best tradition of sport and it was a
pleasure to be associated with it.

Despite a disappointing record of 3 wins, 8 losses and 1
draw this year's senior girls soccer team enjoyed a good
season. Each game saw the players grow in confidence and
skill, until by the end of the season they were able to hold
the eventual League Champions to a one-goal victory in
the last minutes of play. The outstanding players this year
were the Captain, Jane Rees, who controlled the mid-field
and kept the team competitive throughout the season,
Meris Williams, the goal keeper, who frustrated many an
opponent with her brilliant saves and Tanis Laidlaw who,
as a Grade 9, more than held her own on the senior team.
Special mention must also be made to the rear guard of
Catherine Case, Shannon Hill and Christa Williams who
made up for their diminutive stature with a tenacity in
defense that was awesome. In closing I would like to
congratulate all members of the team on their spirit,
sportsmanship and enthusiasm.

The talented Under 15 soccer squad went through the season undefeated and duly became l.S.A. champions.
Adrian Watkins, a newcomer to S.M.U. from Calgary, was captain and midfield general. His aggression and
distribution were essential ingredients in the successful recipe.
The team trained hard and developed a gratifying unity. The fearlessness of Mark Penaluna in goal and the
solidity of the back four made goals scarce for the opposition. At the other end of the pitch Raj Kothary and the
gliding Kevin Ellis were a constant threat.
Throughout the season the attitude of the players was right, the desires and the skills were present, and the
success was well-earned and sweet.

The junior girls' soccer group met regularly and played a
full season of league matches.
Soccer was a new sport to many of the girls, but their
enthusiasm made up for lack of experience, and by the
middle of the season they were playing creditably as a
team. Mary McLeish led the team by e.xample, and
.Shannon O'Sullivan played outstandingly well as
Many of the inexperienced players gained valuable practice
this year and the team should be stronger next season.

The Tennis Team had a very active season this year. We played in the Boys I.S.A. tournament at the U-16 and
the Open levels; we played in the Girls I.S.A. at the Under 16 and the Open levels and we played in the
L.V.I.S.S.S.A.A. Tennis league. Some of the highlights of the season include the U-16 Boys victory in the In-
dependant Schools Tournament (the senior boys were 3rd = ) and the Senior Team's 2nd place finish in our
division of the City league. The Senior team then went on to beat Oak Bay from the other division to qualify for
the Island Championships. Unfortunately the Islands and the Provincials conflicted with our examination time
table and we were obliged to forfeit our place considering the shortage of facilities at the school and the demands
of other sports committments, we had a very successful season. My special congratulations must be extended to
Kari-Lynn Murphy and Suzanne Bradbury for their undefeated season and to Ann Marie Middleton for her
determined play in the Number one girls spot. The team was young this year and \\ill be returning almost in its
entirety next year, so prospects for an even better season look very good indeed. My thanks to all players who
represented the school; you did so with sportsmanship and enthusiasm. Well Done!

The track and field team had completed one of the most successful seasons
in the School's history. Over 100 students participated in the various meets
and most of them managed to improve personal best performances.
Many individuals won titles in the 6 major meets and the results are listed
Andrew Heaman had a superb season including a new school 400m. record
of 50.5 seconds. Gareth Rees dominated the throwing events on the Island
this year and failed by 1 cm. to break the school shot putt record (15.00m.)
Richard Pickard had a 'dream' season, breaking school records for under
14 age group in 100m. hurdles (14. Is) 100m. (1 1.8s) and 200m. (24.4s). Blair
King set a new record in 2000m. steeplechase (6m 37.5s).
Our under 14 girls team in its first year of operation stole lots of glory. Beth
Middleton and Rosemarie Neroutsos were the stars of middle distance, each
staking the claim to future stardom. Mary McLeish was unfortunately
injured when on the threshold of success. Our 4 x 400m. relay team was City
and I.S.A. Champions and Cathy Juricic and Laura Hammersley did well
in the throws. Sarah Beeston, Sarah Archibald and Jennifer Lamont
showed enormous potential.
The only senior girls track record was set by Pam McCune with a fine 5m.
10.9s in the 1500m.

This year was the second tuli season tor the girls' volleyball program.
We started off slowly in the city league, meeting most of the
provincially ranked teams in the first weeks. However, as the players
developed their skills and team-play the team steadily rose through the
ranks to earn the fourth place playoff position. Unfortunately the
island championships was the same weekend as the fall break so that
the team was reduced in numbers and unable to play.
The 1984 ISA championships was held at York House. The hosts
decided to add a "funny cake" contest to liven up the day. SMU's
cake, prepared by Mrs. Jones, won the first prize in pre-tournament
judging. It then followed that the SMU girls were encouraged to play
their best so that they could claim the first prize cake. Going into the
final game of the round robin the girls played their toughest com-
petition. The winner would be the championship team. At the end of
the game the SMU team had won by the narrowest of possible margins
and had proudly won the ISA title and the tastiest trophy. The
players: Shelly Greene (captain), Jane Rees, Catherine Case, Christine Duke, Meris Williams, Angela Holmes,
Shannon Hill, Melanie Dovey, Margo Leach, Shannon O'Sullivan, Lara Draper, Lynn Chui and Lisa Gaede.
The Principal's Report
To begin with, I would lii<e to cast a backward glance at this
school year, being my first, and to focus upon some of the
accomplishments and activities of the last nine months of
whirlwind. I will, of course, be brief. A university mentor
directed me always to employ a simple strategy; his wise
words were: "if you have not struck oil in the first five
minutes, stop boring."
This was, of course, the year the male bastion was besieged
and broken when last September young ladies joined us in
Grades 1, II, III and VII. So beneficial has their inclusion
been that I am delighted, from this September, to welcome
girls in all grades in the Junior School.
Late September saw the start of a new language programme
in the primary grades: the teaching of Japanese, made
possible by the generous donations of Mr. Richard Bon-
nycastle and Mr. Seiji Masuda, father of Takuji in Grade VII.
Recently, during a visit to the school, made by the Mayor and
other dignitaries of Morioka to mark Victoria's twinning with
that Japanese city, students from the PRIMARY grades
entertained the visitors so well in Japanese rhetoric and song
that the distinguished guests were late arriving at their next
destination, the venue of tertiary education in this city. This
makes sense in the fact that B.C. is a primary producer! !
Throughout the year what has struck me about the students
we have in the Junior School is that they are performers. Their performances began in the first term in their
winning of the City Grade VII Debating Championship; in the second term it was the turn of the artists who
carried off many of the major awards in the City-wide Cartoon Competition. During the same term Grade VII
students distinguished themselves in the Commonwealth Essay Competition and in one category of the City-wide
Police Essay Competition, won outright by Robb Marker of Grade VII. In mathematics also our performers won
distinction by placing first in B.C. and SECOND in the nation in the Windsor Math Competition, entered by
some 868 schools across Canada. In the recent Gauss Mathematics Competition, S.M.U. placed first at the
Grade VII level. I could go on, but you might think I am boasting; and we all know that winning isn't everything
but just nearly everything! !
The important point is that our performers still had energy and time to enjoy other activities in their quest for a
balanced diet. By joining the Greater Victoria Elementary Athletic Association, the Junior School was able to
enjoy an arena of Competition in Cross-country, soccer, basketball and rugby-football. From time to time we
had our clocks cleaned, sorry: we were beaten, but what was never beaten was our indefatigable spirit. And as
you know, schools will tick if the temperature is right and the ethos ebullient. We certainly had the students for
I must say that I shall be sorry to see this brilliant, motley crew move on, but mo\e on they must for they have
rightly outgrown us: and in their place thanks to the admissions policy of the school and the attraction we are
enjoying, will come other students for whom we will feel the same possessive nature. I know we all enjoyed
having them: and I hope they enjoyed being had! !
In a school such as this we do have CHILDREN OF GOLD, as Plato called them. It is the determined effort of
the Junior School to provide them with an environment in which they can show their mettle.
The reason is obvious, remembering Benjamin Franklin's words in Poor Richard's Almanac:
Hide not your talents
They for use were made
What is a sun-dial in the shade?

Good-bye, winter, white snow to see,
Hello, spring, where flowers spring free.
Good-bye, snow skis which once slid aloft.
Hello, bikes, riding smooth and soft.
Good-bye, snowmobiles which bounce on the snow.
Hello, motorcycles, now searching so low,
Good-bye, white clouds which glide through the frosty,
Hello, blue sky, with the sun passing by.
Good-bye, Christmas trees, the needles so green,
Hello, Easter eggs, so colourful when seen,
Good-bye, snowy ground, covering the grass.
Hello, melted snow, hard to notice, melted fast,
Good-bye, cold days, too cold to watch.
Hello warmth, open the latch, so . . .
Good-bye, winter, white snow to see.
Hello, spring, where flowers spring free!

Through eternity the seasons blare
They change, they sweep -
Ik-eaiise tliey are gods.
They are all power,
They live, they thrive
They blaze, they destroy
But most of all they care.
They give us food
They give us water
Give us games
And give us tun
But they really do it for proudness.
The fields of dew
The April bliss
The newborn ewe
The springtime green
A dampened sheen
The Maytime rains
Have always been
A wave of colourfulness sweeps over the land.
It is like a caterpillar changing into a butterfly.
The flowers bloom.
The sun shines, the animals, insects ride with the wave.
The blue sky is like the open ocean.
The birds sing their colourful little songs.
The grass is as sweet as sugar.
Spring the best time of year.
AN AVID ANIMAL
The raccoon has a greedy look,
And is masked nocturnal crook,
Who robs the falling fruit off trees
And rotting vegetables with ease.
He raids trash cans for excess food.
Then shares it all with his young brood.
It seems our waste becomes his boon
So who's more avid? Man or coon?

On Thursday the paramedic's came for a visit they told us about the stretchers first I liked the clam shell the
most. I learned that you could see the lights from miles and miles away. The siren is very loud so I had to plug my
ears. When we went into the ambulance. I saw a lot of things inside the ambulance I saw a fire extinguisher and a
burn kit and a maternity kit under the burn kit. If you broke your rist they would put a wrist band on your rist
and then rap cloth around it. If there was a emergency the radio in the ambulance will contact the paramedics
and they will go to the emergency and do
what they can. In the ambulance there is
the main stretcher it is a cot it locks into
the side of the ambulance with a gatch.
There were coloured bandages that were
diffrent sizes so they no what colour they
need. There was an oxgen mask that gives
you more oxgen when your hurt. When
your hurt they put you on a stretcher.
Every time they use it they put clean
sheats on the stretcher.
UNDER THE WATER
A stream of light pushed through the water.
Away, Away, it went.
Down, Down, to the oeean floor.
Then blasting on the roeks below.
it shimmered and sparkled with a rainbow of
it rose to the surface with even more light.
It looked at the stars,
And died in the night.
THE BRANCH OF THE TREE
Swinging and swaying like an elephant's trunk.
Rotting of age from so many years
Like a person is old after a long-lived life.
But inside it is a fountain of youth
With tiny little insects working inside.
Building a home for their life to come.
What may look like an old rotting tree.
Is a fountain of life to the insects inside.

Not knowing where to

There his spirit flew
