VALEDICTORIAN ADDRESS June 23, 1984 Honoured guests, parents, staff, and fellow graduates, class members. First, on behalf of my class, I wish to express our deepest thanks to the academic and house staff of Brentwood College. They are, of course, the catalysts of this institution and throughout the year have triggered a vastly wide range of learning experiences. Though not all very pleasurable, these experiences have enabled us to learn how to respond in certain situations, and how to use ourselves in finding an answer. As we soon step out of our seats as the graduating class, we anticipate that faint ' click ' which will transform the staff and students from mortal enemies to treasured friends. We ask that they take care with next year ' s crop, try not to overwater them or plant them too closely to one another, but allow them to breathe and grow. They ' re a good bunch of seeds. Thank you, staff! At the same time I must express an equally strong statement of gratitude towards the people who have invested as much love as income in sending us here: our parents and guardians. Thank you. What we graduates are feeling right now is a kind of mixture of delight and nausea. Delightful nausea, if I may put it that way. We are ready to leave. But at the same time in looking around we sadly realize that this is the last time we will sit together as a graduation class as a whole. We have been through so much together and after living with each other for several years, there will be a large empty spot inside to fill. However, there is never progress without change and now life awaits us, full force and unyielding and I believe we will find something new, something of worth and purpose to fill the emptiness which was once occupied by the spirit of Brentwood College. We all know that strong bonds of friendship have been formed which neither time nor distance can fracture. Good luck, eighty-four, to you all. And finally, one of the hardest words to utter must be said, to the staff, to the school, and to each other: goodbye. Kevin Hare
