Girls . . . The Ottawa On Tuesday, October 29, 1985, the grade nines set off to Ottawa under the leadership of Mrs. Hay. There were suitcases everywhere, missing girls, frantic teachers and busy Mrs. Hay while we loaded the bus. The ride up was fine but everybody was relieved to get off the bus to have a tour of Bellevue House, the home of John A. Macdonald. Then we were back on that bus and the days that followed brought many opportunities such as meeting John Turner, Barbara MacDougall, Jean Chretien, Joe Clark and his wife, Maureen MacTeer and John Bosley. Along with this we had tours of the parliament buil dings and we sat in the Senate and the House of Commons. On October 31, after our busy day we set off to the best Hallowe ' en party ever! Mrs. Hay, the teachers and parents had prepared the party room at the hotel for a great Hallowe ' en. All the girls were given masks and entered to see their teachers looking very different. Mrs. Waugh in a pumpkin suit, Mr. McVay as a witch, Mrs. Bousfield as a punk, and Mrs. Hay as a Branksomite, all made our trip very memorable. - Brenda Welsh Travelling Washington Mrs. Hay ' s Washington Trip began at 6:00 am on November 18, the first of six action packed days. All the grade 8 sleepy eyed students began to fill the two buses and Miss Brough woke up early to see us off. The time on the first day was spent on the bus making brief stops from time to time. We spent the nights in Falls Church, Virginia in the Quality Inn and were determined to get a good night ' s sleep for there would be no more days of rest. The next two days we toured the city of Washington, visiting memorials, monuments, the F.B.I, Arlington, the Smithsonians and other historical and interesting sites. By the end of the two days our feet had walked so many miles that we could hardly feel them! The next day was spent in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. Although we did learn a lot, to our disappointment it poured buckets the whole day. On our fifth day in the U.S.A. we visited two famous houses, Ashlawn and Monticello. We learnt a lot about the ar- chitecture and the history. We especially liked seeing the peacocks at Ashlawn. On our last day we drove back to Toronto, but we stopped at Corning and shopped for a couple of hours. Many of us bought Christmas presents here and enjoyed seeing how glass was made. Our trip finally came to a close twenty minutes earlier than we expected but Miss Brough was there again to greet us. It was a successful trip thanks to Mrs. Hay, Mme Bayly, Mrs. Harwood-Nash, the trip moms and dads and our bus drivers George and Chuck! Montreal It was dark outside. Suitcases were lined up in a neat row at the train station. Behind them, on top of them or beside them stood their owners - undercover Branksome girls on a secret mission to study the art scene in Montreal. Their leaders were close by, observing, organizing and giving instructions. There was no doubt that this mission was under tight security. Finally, they boarded the train. After five hours of Sony Walkmans, gossip and frequent visits to the snack bar, the girls arrived at their destination. They rushed out of the station and headed towards the Chateau Champlain Hotel. They were booked there for a couple of nights; a first rate hotel, it seemed, for a small mission studying art. Later that same afternoon, the Branksome girls were observed visiting the Picasso exhibition, shopping along Crescent Street, sitting in cafes and resting in their hotel rooms before dinner. At 6:00 p.m., the girls met with their leaders at Puzzles Restaurant. One can be sure that vital information was being exchanged there. They woke up early the next morning, grabbing a quick bite for breakfast on their way to Place Ville- Marie where walking tours of Vieux Montreal were organized. Architecture seemed to be an important discovery in their mission. A few girls chose to see the city while riding in a Caleche. In this case, the bus was NOT the better way. It was obvious by now that the mission was secret; all the girls were displaying the latest fashion in sunglasses. Well, perhaps it was sunny! That night, the girls met at an international gathering of art missions at the Place D ' Arts. The group split up, half going to see " Cyrano de Bergerac " , while the other half went to see " Dance " . Sunday, the girls quickly finished their mission seeing the Ramses II exhibit at the Palais de la Civilization. The mission was complete. It was fun. A toast to Mrs. Simpson, Mrs. Gray and Miss Kenny for making this mission possible. As James Bond would say: " You only live twice " . Sarah Hull 12
