Text from Pages 1 - 152 of the 1981 volume:

D1 Buena yfctta IXoab, J ockcliffe parti, ttatoja, knlario J 1M p)i$toty of (Jflmiuoob Elmwood School was founded by Mrs. Hamley S. Philpot in 1915, only then it was known as Rockcliffe Preparatory School. Just as today, little boys attended the school. In 1917. an old barn was moved next to the orginal, old house, in order to form an Assembly Hall and three classrooms. In 1923, the name of the school was changed to Elmwood School for Girls. It was in 1923 that the school ' s first yearbook was published - Samara. It had only sixteen pages - a far cry from what it is today, but it was good. The school motto officially came into being - " Suc- cess is naught, endeavour ' s all. " As well, the school song was composed. In 1925, the old house was demolished, and a three storey one was built to accomodate boar- ders. There were three dorms, the names of which can still be seen - Wynken. Blynken and Nod. Classrooms also had names - Honey Bear, for example. In 1930, the barn was demolished, and an Assembly Hall was erected. Three years later, the headmistress ' residence was built. Some fifty years later, changes are still occuring at Elmwood, almost constantly - both in the building and the uniform. A few years ago, we saw the kilt emerge, and this year, new prefect sweaters came into being. In the coming year, new ties will be introduced to go with the green and white kilts. They will be solid green; presently, the ties are green with yellow stripes. As well as uniforms changes, there are changes in the building. This year was the one that had the highest enrolment ever at Elmwood - somewhere around ' 220 students. Next year, looking to the future, there are going to be quite a few more students. Grades Three and Four will be separated; thus there is a need for additional teaching space. Fifty years ago, no one would have even thought of having machines to add and subtract large numbers with; but the computer age has hit Elmwood. The school has purchased three PET computers, and, as a result of this, will soon be starting a course in computer science. This should be a very successful course, and the computers will, no doubt, prove to be very worthwhile (especially for Mathematics! !). Doubtless, Elmwood will continue to grow and change with the times. But despite all these changes, and all the modernization that the school is going through, it still has a great history. There ' s a lot of tradition in Elmwood which will, no matter how modern and computerized the rest of the world gets, never be lost. 2 Parts of this appear courtesy of Kalli Varaklis. C entente jfbrmtf @ommittw iDireciorp This year was Mrs. Gundy ' s first year as vice- headmistress; she replaced Mrs. Aldous in Sep- tember. Despite this fact, and also owing to the fact that she was often seen in the office last year, Mrs. Gundy did very well, and was also very helpful to the Samara Committee. As well as offering us her assistance, she would produce, from the depths of her office, mysterious packages and letters that were of special importance to the editors. Tha nk you, Mrs. Gundy, for all that you have done, for Samara and for the rest of the school. Well, dear Editors, you will be pleased to have accomplished your task, and soon we shall see the end result of your labours. I hope you will judge it a good experience. As you hound your reluctant, or merely dilatory contributors, you must sometimes be tempted to think it would be easier to write the whole thing yourselves. Yet actually, of course, the most valuable thing you learn is the management of other people and how to delegate responsibility I hope you have experienced at least some of the co-operation you deserve. It is a cliche to say that it has been a busy year, and it is a cliche I will be using at Closing in any case. Anyway, you will have all the real happenings chronicled on other pages, the drama productions, the games we won and lost, the successes at this and that. What we generally do not talk about is the ongoing, ordinary work and study that goes on. Each year we learn a little, even the oldest of us. Somehow you, the students, progress from learning to read to reading to learn. The books you carry to and from school get larger and heavier. " Sums " become Calculus and Algebra. One page " stories " become extended essays for the International Bac- calaureate. Mrs. Scott ' s demons become Mrs. White ' s young ladies. The staff learn just how much enthusiasm to expect from a class at three o ' clock on a Friday afternoon, and just how much of Grade Ten ' s History course is remembered in Grade Twelve. Everyone should treasure the Samaras of their school years. Hang on to this one. That was YOU, four or forty years back. Mrs. Whitwill 4 Left to Right: Allison Lee. Sue Warren, Chris Assad, Liz Seward, Lise Paradis, Amanda Lovatt. Sabine Jurgens. Absent: Andrea Korda. HTl)ank pott. ... for all the wonderful things you have done for Elmwood this past year - not only the prefects, but the entire Grade Thirteen class. Who will ever forget you trying to keep things quiet before prayers, the fantastic Spirit Week that you organized, the Spice Sale . . . The Class of ' 81 has left behind a lot of memories that won ' t soon be forgotten, and the upcoming years will have a hard act to follow! ! Best of luck, Grade Thirteen, in your future endeavors. Thanks a lot, for all that you ' ve done for the school. 6 Mrs. O ' Brien Mrs. Outerbridge Mrs Peat Mme. Sabourin II If.; Mrs. Schmidt Mrs. Scott Mme. Seguin Mrs.Tilson Mrs. Turkington Mme. White Mr. Yates Absent: Mrs. Davies, Mrs. Grimes, Mrs. Hoy, Mrs. MacDonald. 7 8 9 to mintetratration The entire school owes its thanks to those hard working people in the front offices - Mrs. McFadyen. Mrs. Sigmund. and Nicola Templeton - for keeping the school running so smoothly. Without them, who would we ask to get band-aids, chalk, money (for school purposes, that is), and permission to use the telephones 7 Thank you very much, all of you. Standing: Mrs. McFadyen. Seated: Mrs. Sigmund. Absent: jfatt anb Marie Jan and Mane have been around the school for a long time, and it ' s a good thing! ! Marie is our resident cook, and makes the soup for Junior and Senior lunches. As well, she occasionally has to put up with groups of students who invade her kitchen. Jan always seems to be around at the right time, to fix whatever needs to be fixed - from the most complex items, to the simple requests of students. Thanks, Jan and Marie! 1 1 Clockwise from Top: Carolann Swift (Advertising), Elizabeth Ashworth (Head of Advertising). Kathy Suh (Co-Editor), Shannon Jaeger (Co-Editor). After many long hours of thought, hard work and disagreements, pizzas, cream cheese and lettuce sandwiches, and an unimaginable number of cookies, we have finally reached our goal of completing our yearbook (more or less on time!). We did this with much help, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank those people who dedicated their time and effort to help make this edition of Samara a success: first, to the staff - Mrs. Whitwil), Mrs. Gundy, and the rest of the teachers - for their co- operation, encouragement, and offers of assistance; to Elizabeth Ashworth and Carolann Swift, who looked after our financial status, raising money and getting advertisements; to Mark Whitwill (whose picture we included on page 58, since he is so much a part of the school), for his photographic skills; to Lisa Stilborn, Rosemary Clyde, and Christina Camp- bell, for taking pictures, and giving up part of their summer holidays in order to help out with the yearbook; to Grade Twelve, simply for putting up with us throughout the year; and to the rest of the school, for its support and contributions. Without any of them, this Samara wouldn ' t be what it is (although we aren ' t exactly sure just WHAT it is!). We hope you enjoy this year ' s yearbook; although many major changes may not be visible, we HAVE thought of some new ideas - our theme (and the cover), which was rather original, an enlarged art and literature section, and our " Faces " page, to name a few. It ' s taken a lot of effort to produce this; we ' re proud of our accomplishment, and we hope you feel the same way. It ' s your yearbook, and the memories that are in it will last forever. Good luck to next year ' s editors, Lisa Stilborn and Rosemary Clyde. We ' ve already given them some advice - the exact same words that we heard - START EARLY! ! Remember, Elmwood, it ' s your Samara, so support your Samara Committee! t Shannon CHRISTINE ASSAD Seven years ago, Christine c ame to Elmwood from her school in Gatineau, feeling shy and a little awkward - but that was all soon to change. As soon as she picked up a few more crucial English " mots, " her true, lovable, outgoing nature burst forth. Although a famed Ottawa celebrity known for her hostessing abilities ( " The Brockeridge " ). Christine did not put her talents to rest there. Always an active member of the school, she did a great job this year as Head of Nightingale, and " her tree " stands on our grounds in recognition of her contributions. We will all remain indebted to Christine for her recipes for Chocolate Chow Mein Clumps and Pita and Roast Beef Sandwiches! Keep up those great spirits and have fun always - we know you will! HEIDI BLAIR Heidi joined us in Grade Ten from Lisgar. Ever since she came to Elmwood, Heidi has contributed much to the music programme at Ashbury, with her silver flute. She also has her athletic side; she surprised us with her short-lived interest in track and field a few years ago. In her last year at Elmwood, Heidi developed an interest for the fostered children, as a result of being the head of Sui-Sang. Throughout her years with us, Heidi has maintained her unique sense of humor. Bonne chance! " Time to stop this dreaming, Must rejoin the real world As revealed by orange lights And a smoky atmosphere. " Genesis 14 CLARE BUTLER Ever since Clare arrived at Elmwood for Grade Nine, on her trusty blue Peugeot, life has never been the same. Clare spends a lot of time reading in the most unsuspected places, thus appearing to be an innocent( 7 ) member of Grade Thirteen. But few people actually know Clare ' s other side. She ' s been known to push people off T-bars (OSCAR sandwiches?!), coach people on how to do " spread eagles " (right. Clare 7 ), and run red lights in her red Volvo wagon. What unfortunate people will ever forget those mad dashes to and from soccer games and cross-country runs? Her unmistakable laugh and great sense of humor have helped to keep us going this year. Clare plans to attend Queen ' s University next year; wherever she goes, whatever she does, we all wish her the best of luck! SORAYA FARHA Don ' t be blown away by Soraya ' s charm, wit, beauty and intelligence; underneath it all, she ' s just an ordinary charming, witty, beautiful, intelligent person. Con- sequently, she has achieved amazing grades and has become an important part of the soccer team. If she is not found in the Common Room doing an English " E " essay, Soraya is having her breakfast at Bagel Bagel, or lunch at the Bohemian There ' s something about Mad Fried chicken that makes her wild!! Soraya is known for her beige Volvo and her multi-colored top-siders. She will excel in all colors. We ' re happy you came back, Soraya! 15 HEIDI HOBDAY " Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less travelled by. And that has made all the difference. " - Robert Frost Heidi ' s (alias Hobdarino) love of languages is surpassed only by her desire to talk. Endlessly. Catty remarks, brilliant repartee, winning German contests and em- barrassing questions are just a few components of her vast repertoire, along with tinkling those old black and whites and singing soprano. Heidi ' s dancing (which she does with vehemence when she ' s not studying) can only be described as . . . AVANT GARDE? Yes, let ' s leave it at that. She spends a lot of time at Ashbury (but not v ' sitmg her little brother), and she rushes headfirst into things such as Miss Teen Greater Ottawa Contests, where one ' s head is the LAST thing the judges want to see. She has been " seen " this year with a sinister Marlboro- man, a boy who never fitz, and a Clockwork Orange pal. Heidi is known for her luscious glory and her ability to razz-rezz anything she comes in contact with. She will excel if she goes into translating, although we ' re not sure if there ' s a great demand for people who speak nadsat. Darlmk . . . i luff . . you ... A. JOANNA FRAYNE Joanna joined the ranks of our " West End " bus riders in Grade Eleven. This includes Mic ' s for breakfast. " Late AGAIN, Jo! " , and doughnuts and smokes before 4:30. Among her interesting characteristics. Joanna ' s most famous is probably the unique way in which she eats. The lunch room has been kept very entertained. We can never forget her developing techniques or perhaps not the techniques, but WHAT (or who) she develops. We ' ll never tell, Jo! Her trips down the hill for the necessities of life are also dubious. The Class of ' 81 will remember her for such things as Burger King for breakfast, lunch and dinner. " I have a doctor ' s appointment, " going to " Eco " today, and opening umbrellas in the common room. Behind the easygoing exterior is one of the most honest and un- predictable people Elmwood has ever encountered. Joanna ' s actions are sometimes a little out of the ordinary, but her sense of humour keeps us all laughing, even at the hardest times. Next year, Joanna is going to Algonquin for Social Work. Good luck, Jo, and it was a pleasure knowing someone as sincere as you. SUSAN ISAAC Susan came to Elmwood in 1976. and ever since then, she has had an everlasting affair with, what else . . . Harlequin Romances. Her interests did not stop there, however, for if she did not have her nose buried in the latest Harlequin, she could be found writing poetry or short stories, or off on a trip to South America. This is most probably what sparked her interest in the Spanish language and " Julio, " although we think Mme. Sabourin also had something to do with it! Susan ' s love for English and the Art courses in general made her decide, after Grade Eleven, never to open one of those " hateful " Math or Science books again. Susan plans to take journalism at Carleton; following that, she has hopes of reporting to us on the doings of the South Americans ... in both English and Spanish?!! We wish you all the best, and keep up the Schtroumph collection 1 SABINE JURGENS Perhaps at one time, when she came to us in Grade Eleven, Sabine ' s quiet, ladylike mannerisms, enhanced by her long hair and glasses, may have been partially genuine. Her image was destined to change. Nowadays, her hair is basically " short and sassy. " No more glasses, no more ladylike facade. She ' s definitely made a sporty conversion. It seems Sabine is always engaged in some sort of physical activity, although we don ' t always know what. At times, she ' s hard to catch, but we ' ve discovered the magic words: " Wanna cup of coffee, Sabine? " That ' ll get her every time. Sabine is one of those people who is good in all aspects of school life, and her friendliness can be confirmed by anyone. She ' s one of those people we will remember for years to come, but for what other reason than her Dutch name? After all, it ' s not every day that you meet someone named " Sabine. " Honestly, though, we ' ll miss you. Take care of yourself, kiddo. Be sure to look for happiness, whether it be at Ottawa U or anywhere else. 17 ALISON LEE Al came to Elmwood in Grade Seven, and her record speaks for itself; she is Head Girl this year. For several years, Alison ' s singing voice has put the rest of the school to shame; this year it has kept quiet. Among Ali ' s other accomplishments (other than those that go with her position) are acting, modelling, pianoing, organ playing at Ashbury, soccering, and Jim. Although you might expect her to be hard working, Alison is actually very amusing. She is the one person everyone can talk to. Alison has also made life easier for us all, in English in particular, with her imaginative but religious analysis. Mind you, it would be even better, Al, if you would speak at less than two hun- dred words a minute; that way our notes would be less discombobulated. But to know Al is to know a well rounded human being. Best of all, her lack of bad temper has made her a great joke taker, someone we can all have fun with. (Sorry, Jim, don ' t get jealous!). Best of luck, Alison, wherever you go. ANDREA KORDA Andrea came to Elmwood halfway through Grade Six, and still managed to get her Merit; since then, she has dazzled all newcomers with her rows upon rows of Merit pins. She is one of the few girls with so many extracurricular ac- tivities that we can ' t keep track of them . . . basketball, first aid, swimming, horseback riding, the hairdressers ' . . . And not to mention that she was on the advertising section of Samara and was Head of Keller this year. Although quite quiet at times, her laughter br eaks through and we know she is there. Andrea has always been a Science interestee. and wants to go on and study Medicine at Queen ' s. Leave all those patients alone, Andrea, and good luck! . . . Who was on the bus this morning? 18 AMANDA LOVATT SDidey-legs Lovatt has enthralled everyone with her continuous eating since Grade Nine, rising to pre-eminence in Grade Thirteen as Senior Prefect. Another one of those Sciency people. Amanda tries to dazzle us with her knowledge of music as well; these Senior Prefects - what else can you expect? On the whole, Amanda is a stable character, saving her rowdy outbursts for the weekends Not just another dumb blonde who only likes to party. Amanda enjoys working hard(?!) on her studies, teaching piano " chez her " after school, taking candid shots of others, and tipping her sailboat in Britannia. Mandy enjoys rural life as well. She worked on a farm during the past summer, and captured everyone ' s attention with heavenly smells when she returned. Amanda hopes to go to Waterloo next year, to study Math. (We tried to enlighten her, but she wouldn ' t listen). As Waterloo is on the co-op system, Ottawans will be seeing her at odd times of the year, when she comes home for a work break. Good luck, Amanda, you poor, misguided Math freak! ROSALINE NGAN " When you find yourself in hot water, take a bath. " This Math whiz came to us in Grade Twelve from a foreign country. It was an easy transition for Ros, coming from another girls ' school; but she also travels extensively, and has experienced much. Ros enjoys it here because it is a wild and crazy place, and to her, wild means savage and crazy means insane. She leaves to you a little thought: " When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. " Best of luck in your further studies, Ros! 19 ANGELIKA ORFANOS Angelika arrived at Elmwood last September in full uniform for the first and last time. She has shown amazing imagination in her outfit creations. The green atoms in her socks turn instantly white as she puts them on . . . did you learn that in Physics class, Angelika? Often she ' ll whip out of the Common Room in those purple sweatpants, her feet a blue and yellow blur in flashy " Free Spirit " Bauers. She ' s always the first one ready for a Rockcliffe " Depletion Run " - hair flying back, a toothy grin on her face. Other pastimes include ballroom dancing ( " cha cha cha! " ), Greek Easter celebrations and rating our teeth and haircuts. Well, you ' ve sure made our day many a time, and you ' re going to " Angelikalize " many more! Seriously, we ' re fortunate to have known you this past year. Take care and best of luck in whatever you do! LISE PARADIS Lise is the first French Canadian that we know who has learned to live with it and laugh about it! She has a renowned ability to change the lyrics of hymns and give them her own special meanings. Lise enjoys running and has taken part in many road races, including the National Capital Marathon. She will be remembered for her horse laugh . . . borrowing . . . bus tickets . . . hitting her friends for no reason . . . those dates . . . Grade Twelve Formal . . . and last but certainly not least, her misconceived vanity. Lise ' s love of children has been aptly shown in her various activities, which include being a camp counsellor, a patient teacher of 3 4 gym, and Junior School Prefect. With this experience, it is not surprising that she plans to work with children in Nursing or the Physical Education profession. Well, Froggy, whatever you do, keep hopping along! 20 EVA RASTER Otherwise known as Eva Rooster, she calls herself a " Gift from God. " Eva waltzed Into Grade Thirteen in October, late as she usually is for her classes. She has many hidden talents, which did not come to light until the second and third terms: her pigouts at Ashbury tuck shop, and her suntannmg from the Grade Thirteen balcony to the park. She complained about the lack of night life in Ottawa and decided to do something about it and find her own " Mm- sky ' s " in hope of finding some fun! Eva is not the quiet girl that she seems to be; you have to watch out for her ' cause she ' s a wild blonde from Chicago. She hopes to go to Carleton next year (we all wonder why, eh Jim?) and dazzle everyone with her language abilities. Who knows, she might even become a translator for the U.N.! Watch out Ottawa, ' cause Eva ' s staying in town. Don ' t be good - you can ' t have any fun that way! Ml ANDREA ROBERTSON This capricious young Celt is certainly not your average dour Highland Scot. If at any time a frown does cross her face, it is quickly replaced by her infectious smile and irrepressible laughter. She has an inane sense of humour and often gives the impression that she is light-headed. She is also wonderful to have around because she ' s filled with incredible energy and enthusiasm, which inspires everyone. Whether she is dancing madly at parties, singing boisterously at parties, or simply running madly AFTER parties, Andrea is as outgoing as it is possible to be. Mind you, she is equally enthusiastic about Art and Art History classes, although she hates to be classified as " Artsy. " Her love of art is only surpassed by her love of nature, Jeffie ' s little doggies, and generally having a wild time. She often is very theatrical, and therefore should make a great actress. Doubtless, her unmistakable voice will carry to the back of many theatres in the future. Who knows, maybe there will be that ominous blue-black Beaumont waiting for her at the backstage door after every stunning performance. Dance, then, wherever and with me; we are the lords of the dance says me. From one who flings you many kisses, Hobdarino. 21 ELIZABETH SEWARD Lizzy-Miss-Dizzy came to our class in Grade Ten, and since then the class has been different. For the first year. Liz was pretty quiet (unheard of!), concentrating on her marks. But Grade Eleven came in with a bang, and Liz showed everyone her ability to have fun, in and out of school. Last year, we all benefitted from Liz ' s hostessing. Her culinary efforts are something to see; she uses everything from corn starch to ketchup to thicken her beef stroganoff. But Liz is a many-faceted person, and although she enjoys herself in her own time, she still keeps the brains in working order. Last year, she won the Lieutenant Governor ' s Medal. This year, she has been accepted into McGill University for a Science program. The uproar in poor Montreal will be heard by those who are going to Queen ' s! Good luck, Lizzy, and see you around. CATHERINE SMITH Catherine joined us in Grade Ten, and since then, she ' s become an integral part of the class. She ' s well liked by everyone, and is one of the few who can commiserate with both the " Artsies " over all those horrific essays, or the high-browed scientists over such learned problems as how fast the level of a martini is rising when half an olive is submerged in a martini glass. However, all in all, she is regarded as a cool, calm and collected member of the form. With such a reputation, it seems a bit strange that you find her in some of the weirdest situations. Who can imagine Catherine, of all people, going wild at that pignic lunch in Grade Twelve? That was one definitely large lunch, but the only effect that this orgy of eating seemed to have on Cathy ' s cool front was the fact that she had to let out her kilt a few feet. Cathy ' s cool should help her get through life at the University of Toronto, and the weird situations she has encountered here will most definitely prepare her for the social life. Good luck, Cathy! 22 CARINA VAN HEYST Not known to be timid. Carina seldom refrains from voicing her opinions, whether in direct contrast to those of our distinguished professor, or acting the conscience of her friends. Never does she miss the chance to show her great spirit, whether at the dances, being a D.J., doing her " thing " in the talent show, or tearing up the soccer field. Carina has truly left her mark on the school - in blue, green, orange, yellow and red. Our stripe is something that won ' t easily be removed! She has also demonstrated her powers of organization in her two valley-wide television ap- pearances on " Reach. " and her infallible planning of the best Elmwood Graduation Dance ever. Here ' s to sen- timentality. Carina: remember " In Praise of Older Women! " How about those eggrolls, and the trips to the store for Smarties?! Well, kid, you only graduate from high school once, and if you ' re going to do it. do it well, and with style - as you did. " Partir, c ' est mourir un peu. " A SUE WARREN A real veteran of Elmwood, everyone will agree that Sue has left her mark on the school - in a rainbow of colors. As a House Head this year, she had " nothing to say " (to quote her), probably having talked herself out with Samara last year. Sue is a very energetic member of the class; who else could dance for four hours straight? In fact, Sue enjoyed the dances and coffee houses so much that she decided to D.J. two coffee houses with her cohorts, proving to all that " anything they can do, we can do better! " Our little purple princess has some rather amazing abilities; she can play the piano with six hands, and influence certain tall, dark and handsome men(!) by " flashing a brilliant smile. " The high point of her year was her trip to Great Britain, and since she enjoyed it so much, we hope she ' ll get back there again. Well, Sue, it ' s been an amazing seven years (except for the brief trip to Australia) and you ' ve put a lot into Elmwood. We know you ' ll put everything you ' ve got into Queen ' s next year (and anything you do), and when the going gets rough, get a Spanish coffee! 23 LOLATSE Lola joined Grade Twelve this year, from Hong Kong. Although she was very quiet at the beginning of the year, she soon loosened up and got into the swing of things, joining her crazy classmates in their crazy doings. Often the only member present for Physics (where was the rest of the class?), Lola has worked very har d this year, and has improved her English a lot. Everyone recognizes Lola for her mathematical ability, on account of her teet marks. (No more bribing the teachers, Lola!!). With her, Lola has brought a lot of new things to the rest of the class, and has given us many happy and memorable experiences. Lola plans to attend university in Canada next year. Our thoughts will be with you always, Lola. Good luck! STELLA YEUNG Stella arrived at Elmwood last fall, and good old " Shuf- flefoot " has survived the year with us all. She would walk in the Common Room each morning, Adidas bag slung over one shoulder, saying " Mornin " ' to everyone. A good judge of character, Stella kept sizing us up • and chuckling all year long!! We hope you ' ve enjoyed your time at Elmwood - it ' s been nice seeing you here. Best of luck next year in Computer Science at Waterloo. 24 iarles Pic!is a Brida A Podborski wins his third straigh t World Cup race v - i Terry Fox He wouldn 1 admit defes I THE SHOOTING r v- i mbti 1 1 R C ij olhjssan Banisadr • Hnilil I SUM II j I.. 11 Always Be a Pffepj ; r ll - l ll l M l L ii Rule Breaking at Elmwood While most of us begin at Elmwood as law-abiding young girls, something happens to us along the way, as inevitably most of us try to break rules in one way or another. In order to break rules effectively and safely, there are two prerequisites. First of all, you must have mastered the " Who, me? " look, which, when done effectively, is foolproof. Secondly, you must learn to be quiet, even discreet, about rule breaking, in order not to be caught. One of the most frequently broken rules is " no food in the classroom. " This rule, broken at least once a week by every student, has a sound reason behind it - the administration does not want to have to deal with small, furry-legged creatures lurking in the classrooms. Because students often bake cakes for members of the form on their birthday, the rule is all but ignored. When a teacher enters the class to teach, students are usually still in the midst of eating, and so a piece of cake is offered as a means of appeasement. This is particularly effective if the cake contains copious quantities of rum or sherry, as many girls are given to substitute these ingredients for milk or water. A second rule commonly broken is " no chewing gum in uniform. " Some of us joke, trying to figure out why anyone would have chewing gum in their uniform. The secret is not to chew bubble gum, which actually gives off an aroma, detectable from a distance of up to twelve feet. Another drawback is that most people cannot resist the temptation to blow a bubble, usually in front of a teacher. The gum should be a small piece - easy to swallow, or conceal under the tongue, or on the roof of the mouth. When in sight of teachers, it should be chewed discreetly. Try not to draw attention to your mouth by placing your hand over it, or by leaning your head on your hand, because you head moves up and down, making you misdemeanor more obvious. Yet another rule commonly broken is the one " that students below Grade Twelve shall not use the front stairs. " Although this is a priviledge, it never ceased to annoy students, as it is much quicker to use these stairs rather than the back ones. By Grade Eleven, students get very lax about this rule, and many of us use the stairs regularly. The secret to this procedure is to stand at the top of the stairs, and peer down to see who is in the office. If there are no teachers, the student should proceed. If the student encounters a teacher on the stairs, she should look as confident as possible, and proceed. Turning around and going back up just makes the act more obvious. Rules about jewelry often become victimized by students. Bracelets are often dismissed by the wearer, with the excuse " It ' s for my arthritis " or " I can ' t take it off. " The clever student who wears illegal rings turns the stones over while in the presence of a teacher or a prefect. One sometimes has the feeling that Elmwood has been swept by a religious crusade, by the number of crosses donned by students. It is these same students who always forget their prayer books, and who sleep in every Sunday. While make-up is supposedly a " non-entity, " there is a surprising amount of it around Elm- wood. It strikes some people as funny that some students feel compelled to beautify themselves in order to spend an entire day around members of the same sex. The excuses are always en- tertaining.

Sitting Front: Alison Lee. To whom it may concern: We started out the year with a case of mass confusion, adding to it with Mary-Jane ' s leaving and Jenny taking over in the position of V.P. Things got even more hectic with the candy cane sale in December: there were, however, the on-going cookie raids to make it all worthwhile. Then came Spirit Week, something else to make us tear our hair out - those tight pig-tails didn ' t help either. The coffe house later that night was a tremendous success with everyone!! Then there was Spirit Day on the Friday, which took a lot of time and thought as well as many cases of soaked jeans, tons of water filled balloons and Vaseline, the red and orange jel lo - who knows how much of it was eaten, and how much of it went in the hair, and finally Alison ' s attempt for attention with the whistle. The day, however, went smoothly - thanks to students and staff alike. We ended the week with rousing games of ice hockey and tackle football at Ashbury, and the Valentine ' s dance in the streamer laden Elmwood gym. Next came the horrendous, horrifying, terrifying, fun-filled Spice Sale, along with Rick O ' C. This sale was an example of co-operative production and could only have been completed with energy provided from more stolen cookies and cinnamon in our coffee. That was a week the third floor residents will never forget. Sports ' Day ended the year on the same note that we started on - HECTIC!! Food was misplaced (i.e. 15 dozen buns), drinks were forgotten . . . Thank God for MacDonald ' s . . . and in the end, 230 people were served in a gourmet manner - cold dogs, hot ice cream, luke warm drinks - and it was all eaten (575 hot dogs, 20 gallons of orange drink, 300 ice creams!). It was a great way to end the year, and we ' d like to say thanks to all who heiped, participated and put up with our many activities and madnesses. We hope the spirit shown on these special occasions continues throughout the whole of next year. We couldn ' t have done it without you. Love V. and V P. A.K. Lee, J.J.L. J r. library Despite its manifold functions as meeting place, lunch room, study hall, film studio and classroom, the Senior Library manages remarkably well to maintain its character as a place where quiet studies and researches can be pursued. In many respects, it has improved: it is better organized, thanks to the work of the Library Committee; the reference section, with all its recent, up to date additions, is far more adequate, and there is now a quite respectable Science section, housed in yet more new shelves. There is, moreover, a marked increase in Library borrowing, and a very pleasing decrease in losses. We are extremely grateful to all who have so generously donated books to the Library. Our thanks are particularly due. of course, to the members of the Mothers ' Guild, whose work for the Garage Sale raised the money that enables us to buy new books. Thanks to them, we can further improve our small but worthy Library. Soma G. Tilson Back Row, Left to Right: Jenny Leslie, Lisa Stilbom, Marion Jones. Front Row: Elizabeth Westley, Jennifer Cheney, Mrs. Tilson. The Junior Library has been a very busy place this year Not only have the girls and boys spent many hours listening to stories, reading quietly, or participating in lively discussions, but the teachers, too, have found many books that have been of value to them in assisting them in their various subject areas. Our Hallowe ' en party always helps to fill up our shelves with new paperbacks, and several people have sent in good used books as well as a set of en- cyclopedias. We now have five magazine subscriptions and a new filing cabinet. The support given by the Mothers ' Guild has always been appreciated. This year, books were purchased in the French, Science, History, Geography and Sports areas. On behalf of the Junior School. I would like to thank the Mothers ' Guild for their continuing support.

Many interesting articles gather in the Pound cupboard, which is kept locked in the Grade Twelve classroom.

The committee have been very helpful, and although they didn ' t make a huge profit, in was all worthwhile! AboveJanieta Eyre, Jill Baker, Danielle Thompson. This year ' s bell ringer was Christina Campbell; the Junior School bell ringer, for the first part of the year, was Alii Martin. We must thank these two for their accurate time-keeping, refusals to accept bribes, and all the other things that the bell ringers are required to do. Without them, classes would not end on time, lunch hours would be shortened (or lengthened!!), and numerous other normal, everyday school activities would be out of kilter. Thank you very much; good luck to next year ' s bell ringers! eac} for fyt op The first thing the veteran team members had to do was find themselves a new coach. With Mrs. Harwood-Jones ' help, we proceeded with the search for two willing and able girls to fill the openings that had been created when half of last year ' s team left. This would not be an easy thing to do, but Lisa Stilborn and Shannon Jaeger effectively filled that void. Because of the success of last year ' s team, we were spared the " pleasure " of having to go through the qualifying round. So, our first (and only) showing was against Sir John A. MacDonald. Elmwood gave an in- telligent performance, but did not come out as victors. However, Lisa ' s public speaking earned us full marks on the judge ' s question; Shannon, meanwhile, displayed her knowledge of the natural world. Carina proved that she had no specialty, and Kathy showed supreme confidence because this was her third time out. We showed the rest of the city that Elmwood girls are just like anyone else, but better through our other representatives - our coach, who was described as a " proponent of the flat earth theory, " and our Head Girl, who discussed our " mingling with the boys dow the street. " Finally, we must thank our numerous staff and student supporters - they were a great help - and we must wish a sincere " Good luck " to next year ' s team. Just don ' t get embarrassed - after all, it ' s only everyone in the city watching you! Carina van Heyst Back: Shannon Jaeger, Lisa Stilborn Front: Kathy Suh. Carina van Heyst. 52 This year has seen a notable performance in the history of Elmwood ' s Dance Committees. With much appreciated help, we have been able to provide students with a social calender hard to forget, for many reasons - ranging from a dance with rather negative overtones (i.e. black and white) to a coffee house with an original 60 ' s theme, to the old standby - a Valentine ' s dance, whose telltale streamers are still streaming in various corners of the gym. with the wind up being a live band - totally anonymous but nonetheless liked. Special thanks must go to the teachers, for sacrificing their sanity; to the prefects for showing up so gallantly, and to those who gave their time so freely to work at the door, and especially to all of you who came and supported us in our efforts. For us. the Dance Committee, this year has been an educational experience, not soon forgotten. Thank you. Jenny Leslie Lynn Robertson Liz Sellers The Formal Committee suffered several staff arrangements during the First Term, until it turned out that it would be a committee of one (any votes have been unanimous). With the help of Andrea Robertson and Clare Butler, I found a band in February. With the help of the Grade Thirteen class, I was able to make some money in the Third Term. All of this culminated in a pleasant evening for all, under the stars on June 5. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who helped at one time or another - in particular, with my money making efforts; especially Mrs. White, for her continued encouragement. More than anything else, the Grad would not have bee possible without the Mothers ' Guild, to whom I am indebted. Without Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Baker, it would not have run as smoothly as it did. I hope that next year ' s committee is as successful, and has the kind of support that I was given. Thank you all 1 Carina 53 Back Row, Left to Right: Sue Wurtele, Liz Sellers, Chantelle Brown, Martha Gall. Anne Tessier.

The Elmwood Choir deserves a good deal of praise for the time and effort that went into the production of " Joseph " for Junior Entertainment Night. As a result of this outstanding performance, the choir has made a professional tape of " Joseph ' s Amazing Technicolor Dream-coat, " as well as a collection of other songs. I would like you to know how much pleasure and satisfaction I have had in working with you this year. Mrs. O ' Brien Cl)apci -Monitor Carolann Swift has been our reliable (?) chapel monitor this year. In performing her duties, Carolann had the pleasure (and we know you just loved it) of organizing prayers each morning. Who will ever forget her famous words: " Chairs, guys, " and " DON ' T RIP THE SHEETS!! " Well, Carolann, WE certainly won ' t forget you. Best of luck to next year ' s chapel monitor - enjoy yourself! Back Row, Left to Right: Todd Overtveld, Anne Tessier, Jenny Leslie, Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Peat, Mrs. O ' Brien. Shannon Jaeger, David Power.

The Elmwood Theatre Company, nicknamed " Etcetera, " was born in January, when Mrs. Scott decided to put together a spring play with the Grade ll ' s. However, a few extra people were added on. one from Grade 12, three from Ash bury and two from the depths of the Elmwood staff room, to create a production worthy of a morning assembly, an evening performance, and the Annual In- dependant Schools ' Drama Festival in Port Hope. The play was " Tom Jones, " the director was Mrs. Scott, the make- upper was Mrs. Peat, and the assistant to all three was Mrs. O ' Brien. In Port Hope. Chantelle Jenkins won the award for Best Supporting Role. Hopefully, with all of Elmwood ' s talent at hand, E.T.C. will continue to grow and prosper. Best of luck for next year. Shannon E.H.

Rockcliffe Students win $1,000 nutrition prize The Grade 9 class at Elmwcod School conducted lunch snoops and kidnapped bake sale goodies to promote nutrition awareness among their fellow students. " We got the point across, but sometimes I guess we ' d embar- rass the other girls into eating right, " said class spokesman Phil- ippa Sheppard. The 15 girls were rewarded for their three-month campaign to wipe out junk food by winning a $1,000 prize in the Ontario ministry of health ' s second-annual " Food for Health " contest. A total of 48 schools participated with 20 schools receiving prizes. All Ontario secondary schools offering grades 9-13 were eligible to enter. Under the ministry ' s guidelines, schools were required to pro- mote good eating habits and increase the availability of nutriti- ous foods on the premises. With no cafeteria at Elmwood School, the girls were per- plexed at first with how to fulfill the ministry ' s requirements, said physical and health education teacher Pat Butler. But she said the problem was quick ly surmounted by the group ' s energetic ingenuity. Notes marked " secret " and " confidential " were scattered over the school grounds. Inquisitive students who couldn ' t resist tak- ing a peek inside discovered a question and answer on nutrition. Posters with slogans such as " Be nice to bananas " were plas- tered along hallway walls and students found themselves hum- ming a ditty composed by the Grade 9 class to promote good eating habits — sung to the tune of That ' s Entertainment. During morning assemblies, the class entertained the student body with skits including a spoof on The Dating Game in which Guy Healthy was confronted with three different dates repre- senting various lifestyles and food preferences. The $1,000 prize will be used to supplement the health text books in the school ' s library and to buy track and field equip- ment. Courtesy of t he Ottawa Citizen 60 Did they come out of nowhere?

A frenzied place is that which we control, But at last, its secret shall be unfurled. Selfish and greedy creatures inhabit the land; Man - one who does not see, or protect, Blind to all that has been given; he neglects, Deaf to the one universal command. Towering metallic structures reach for the sky, Deep holes penetrate the earth ' s core Searching for a substance to store, Each adding to man ' s needs to fortify. Each adding to his universal lie; His destruction of life - his defiance! Carolann Swift A Sonnet to Spring The light it stoops on a tender green hill, And the purple coloured heather it smiles As steadily the snow it cries and then the valleys fill, And no longer does the lacy white draw ice upon the stiles. Then gently do the flowers bloom; The rain enticing redness upon the yellow roses. While the rainbow spreads her colours that embrace the purple moon As the sky, dressed in robes of blue, the wintry gloom supposes. The daffodils they colour to the brilliance of the sun, Their bobbing bells of happiness ringing in the hills, While the whitened winter children, full of summer fun. Dance with the leprechauns upon last season ' s tills. And the stealing arms of Mother Earth ripped from wicked white; Hold no children stolen by the winter in its spite. Janieta Eyre The Uniform The uniform is as much a part of Elmwood as is the building itself. Although most students complain about it when they first arrive at Elmwood, it soon becomes accepted, as it solves the problem of " What am I going to put on this morning? " The purpose of my essay is to take parts of the uniform and discuss them. The kilt is the main part of the senior school uniform, and while many people forget their tie. it is much more difficult to forget a kilt. On a school morning, the Elmwoodian needs only to stumble over to her closet and pick up her kilt off the floor. It must be pointed out that the kilt is not always on the floor of the closet; other favorite locations are backs of desk chairs, closet shelves, and dresser drawers. The kilt is rarely hung on a hanger, and this accounts for the dismal state of its pleats which are never straight. The kilt provides an indication of how long the student has attended Elmwood. The more worn looking ones belong to veterans, while newcomers own neater, brighter looking ones. This gage is not always dependable though. Occasionally a veteran will take a deep plunge into extravagance and purchase a second kilt. The Elmwood tie catches most people ' s attention, mainly because it does not match the kilt. The tie is probably the most amusing part of the uniform, principally because one in every two students cannot tie it properly. The student may tie it in such a way that the thin end is six inches longer than the wide end, a state which the student will try to remedy by tucking the longer end into the kilt, or by putting on a V-neck sweater to hide the disaster completely. The student may also tie it so that the wide end is indeed longer than the thin end, but it bobs somewhere around her knees. In this case, the Elmwoodian will also tuck the tie into the kilt, but this simply accentuates the fact that the tie does not match the kilt. Aside from the tie ' s aesthetic quality, (or lack thereof), it also provides an indication of what the student has eaten over a period of time. Ties have been known to bear milk, vegetable soup, yogurt and mustard stains. According to regulations, the Elmwoodian is to wear a white tailored shirt as part of her uniform. Careful examination reveals that there are many variations on this theme. Some shirts have rounded collars, some are missing buttons, some have messages written on them with pencil or ink, and some have their cuffs fastened with safety pins. Many simply appear too large for their wearer, owing to the fact that the student ran out of shirts and is wearing one of her father ' s. Although Elmwood bloomers are phasing out among kilt wearers, it would be inexcusable to write a piece on the uniform without including some mention of them. Upon hearing the word " bloomers, " most people conjure up an image of a white frilly garment; however, much to the relief of her students, Elmwood bloomers are far from that. The school ' s bloomer starts out as being dark green. Bloomers are appreciated greatly as a source of warmth in the winter. They are also appreciated, though, as a source of protection, allowing even the inhibited Elmwoodian to put her feet up on her desk, unafraid of Ashbury ' s furtive glances. Eventually the bloomers are discarded, because of holes or torn elastics, and many are simply thrown in the garbage, the owner unaware of the bloomer ' s additional uses. They make excellent rags, and do a marvelous job of polishing the family car. Like the bloomers, Elmwood socks are dark green. Specifically, regulations call for " hunter green knee socks " which may be purchased at Gerald Preston ' s. These socks are easily distinguished from non regulation socks; they are the ones that slump around the wearer ' s ankle, and whose colour comes out in the first wash. Non regulation socks are of a much higher quality; they stay up, and have a longer life. This probably accounts for the fact that very few people buy their green socks at Gerald Preston ' s. Some people choose to escape the sock problem during the winter months, and wear tights instead. While these tights do not tend to lose their colour, they don ' t stay up either. The uniform has its disadvantages, namely a lack of variety, and it does detract from a person ' s individuality. However, it eliminates competition for the nicest clothing, a phenomenon which is only witnessed at Elmwood on dress-up days, and at social functions. Most of us, after witnessing one dress-up day, are just as glad that we don ' t have to face it every morning. Lisa Stilborn 67 Gerbils Mice I think mice are nice, Even if some of them have parasites All women scream with fright When seeing a mouse at night; But in the day it ' s even worse If they find them in their purse. 1 don ' t know why they make such a fuss, Because mice are really just like us. • They are just looking for something to feed on, And after they do, they will be gone. Mice may be a nuisance once in a while, But that doesn ' t mean they have to be put in the " nuisance " file. When you scream, for them it ' s awfully frightening, And you see why they run like lightning; But if you hide your fright, and be kind, Then you will find That mice are really nice.

Congratulations to all those students who submitted their essays, and to the prize winners of the 1981 contest. Hungry Accusations I stared at the brightly polished fingers Clin ging to the chair; The bile-green, vinyl seat Pierced by nervous, red nails. I wondered, What am I doing here? I looked down at the feet, Half-wrapped, uncertain, Around the legs of the chair. I was uncomfortable In the waiting room. I looked at the pasty face Across from me, Staring accusingly at me. What have I done? I wondered. Guilt swept over me. The nurses walked by, Sending me half-glares From glass eyes. I clutched my white robe, Afraid to reveal something: Prey for their hungry accusations. I felt I had to do something, Escape the evil thoughts of others, Their nasty, cutting gossip: " I hear she ' s not been herself lately. " " Put in a hospital apparently. " Disgust and anger welled up inside me, Lasting several short seconds Of self-assurance, To be replaced with reality. The reality of my condition, The reality of the nurses Feeding me useless pills. I didn ' t need them; I wasn ' t as crazy as they thought. It was not my fault anyway; It was their skeptical looks Of distrust that made me The way I am. It was all THEIR fault. I wanted revenge, to show them all I wasn ' t crazy; I pictured the headlines: " Girl Dies Jumping From Hospital Window " " Girl Stabs Herself in Asylum Cupboard " Then these vengeful thoughts escaped And more thoughts crawled, squirmed Inside my brain like snakes. My courage left as I noticed the knowing Look of my mother, peering through the glass, Unable to touch my writhing brain.

Spring has arrived, and you have come To trample the garden And wither the flower To silence the robin And darken the hour. The season will change. The weather will clear, But the sun will not shine Because you are here. Lisa Stilborn A Memory When I think of you I have to smile. The rose is still so fresh; The morning wraps in whispering veils And gentle happiness. When your hand takes mine, I hold on tight. The rose is soft in bloom; The night, it falls in gentle folds That silhouette the room. Time, it ebbs; Your hand takes leave And suddenly I am left In the wind of a lonely night, With a crumpled rose And a lingering scent.

Oh heavens - you musn ' t touch her easel She would never forgive you See how the revered easel stands dramatically in the shadows. (Strategically placed, don ' t you think?) Mine sits in a dingy corner. She always has a stream of admirers passing by her, oohmg, and aahing over her shoulder, and I can see the flush of pleasure creep up her neck. And her hair is always so carelessly tousled that she must spend hours in front of the mirror. Not much to her art, but then there can ' t be - she is so unimaginative. She has never been creative. Oh come now - you disagree with me? Surely you don ' t think all of her masterpieces take years to complete because she is so full of incredible ideas that she can ' t put them down on canvas fast enough? No - I ' ve watched her, you see. Panic in her face, than a light dawns, she grabs her palette, and is finished within a day, leaving early for a dinner date. Leaving me to lock the studio. I pity her Having to sit all day, trying to act the suffering ar- tiste. I am forever plagued by her. She and her followers, her magazine reviews, her newspaper interviews. She will not leave me in peace. Martha Gall 77 A Midget ' s Meal The label on the bottle said " Shrinking Powder, " but who would have believed it? I did later; it was April Fool ' s Day, so I thought I would try it out on my father. I emptied the powder into the sugar bowl and waited for my father to come down for breakfast. Of course he was late, but I had to see what happened. Half an hour later, he came down and sat at the table. He poured his Corn Flakes into a bowl. I couldn ' t help giggling as he reached for the sugar bowl. As I drank my tea, I noticed that he was getting smaller. My mother asked if he was feeling all right. " Fine, " he an- swered, as he put another spoonful of Corn Flakes into his mouth. I burst out laughing, and pointed to where he was sitting. " Oh! " screamed my mother; " Where has he gone? He must have slipped under the table!! " We both looked under the table and there he was, lying under a Corn Flake, looking angry, worried, and squashed, all at the same time. He was yelling at us in a squeaky voice; it sounded like " Help me! I ' ll die under here! " By now, my mother was hysterical and I was screaming with laughter. " April Fool ' s! " I yelled. Fortunately the powder wore off in fifteen minutes, and my father left for work, feeling rather shaken up. I left for school, thinking about what fun I was going to have, telling my friends about what had happened. Rachel Soar The Copier It happened many years ago, but I still remember it vividly. She was a plump, enormous, blond haired girl, who kept on taking the homework I worked so hard on, and copying it. How I hated the way she walked down the corridor to class, with her nose high in the air, of course, where she would later be praised and worshipped by the teachers. The teachers, of course, thought the homework she had copied from me was absolutely marvelous. As for mine, they never gave it a second thought. Once I caught her with my spelling, and almost punched her in the nose, had it not been for the fact that she was bigger and stronger than I. She was worshipped by the students as well as the teachers, for all my classmates were scared of disagreeing with her. So in the end, no one liked me, because I didn ' t like her. All this went to such an extreme that I became hysterical every time I heard her name, until that one day I remember so well. She had taken all of my homework and was busily copying it, not expecting a teacher to walk into the room. Suddenly, to her misfortune, the principal walked in. Since she was busy copying my homework, she didn ' t realize this. The rest of the class stood up, alert and attentive, except her. When the principal saw here sitting there, writing away, she turned red with anger, and marched over to her desk. When she saw all my books lying over her desk, she knew the whole story right away, for she had heard all my complaints. She picked her up by the collar, although it was difficult because of her size, and marched her off to her office. What happened to her then, I don ' t know, but there was a lot of shouting going on. When she came out of the principal ' s office, she apologized, unwillingly, of course, and never bothered me again. But now, five years later, I imagine her writing at her desk, copying another poor girl ' s homework, of course.

The flowers boldly showed their faces, The animals busied themselves with their young; The streams exploded forth from their hidden homes, And the world was green. The world still had life. The cumulous clouds rolled across the sky, The trees spread their bows, majestic and free; The streams laughed as they proceeded on their ways, And the world was still green. The world had had its life, The animals busied themselves with the coming of winter, The leaves departed from the trees; The fruits blossomed abundantly, And the world wasn ' t green. The world has lost its life. The animals contentedly and soundly sleep. The trees are naked and bare; The streams are shrinking back once more, And the world is white.

Gina Pezoulas m The Invitation It seemed Alicia had been writing a long time when the bell rang to mark afternoon recess. She closed her book, put her pen in her case, and slid them in her desk. She then followed her peers down the hall from the classroom, and down the flight of stairs which led to the locker room. She hated the location of her locker, though. She was beside the most popular girls in her class; they all said, acted and did things in the manner that pleased them, thought Alicia, but at times this did not stop her from wanting to be their friend. Every recess they would do the same thing; they would sit down in front of their lockers, eat their snacks, and talk about other people. Alicia opened her locker, aware of their presence. They would sit, pretending not to notice her, but she knew they were looking at her every move. Carefully out of her schoolcase she took something to eat - two sugar cookies. She did this in such a way as to hide her schoolcase from the girls who were sitting beside her. It was not that there was anything wrong with it; it was just that she didn ' t have a knapsack like all the other girls, and they would probably notice it, and make some comment. Alicia stood by her locker, looking at these fine girls. The closest to her was Erika, a short girl wearing overalls who had her wavy auburn hair pulled back in a pony tail with a navy blue ribbon. She also had a great deal of freckles. Erika sat holding an apple, twisting it around and around to break off the stem; a minute later she would begin to devour it. Beside her sat an obnoxious, dark-haired girl, who but for her long hair closely resembled a boy. The three other girls beside them got up and left to go outside. All who remained were Alicia, Erika, and her obnoxious friend. Alicia knew the pattern; every recess and lunch hour it was the same thing - the girls would disperse into tiny groups. She had finished her sugar cookies and went to throw out the waxed paper wrapper in the garbage can behind her. It was as if the two girls beside her had suddenly been reminded of her presence. " You going to Erika ' s today? " the obnoxious one asked Alicia. " No, " replied Alicia. " Why, what ' s going on? " " It ' s her birthday; she ' s having a part ... " At that moment, Erika cut off her friend, and whispered to her that Alicia was not invited. Alicia heard everything that they said. Calmly, she turned around and walked down the hall until she was out of their sight, and then ran out the door, and outside into the dusty schoolyard. She had forgotten her coat; it was late fall and the frosts were just beginning, but she didn ' t care. She ran over to the bars that she had done flips over as a smaller child, and sat on the cold, black metal, rocking herself back and forth and forcing to keep her balance. The words of those two girls stabbed her like a knife; ruthlessly striking at old wounds, Alicia sat there for a few minutes. She wanted to cry but couldn ' t; the bell would ring soon to mark the end of recess, and she musn ' t go in looking upset. It would make things worse. She jumped off the bar, took a deep breath, and followed the other students inside when the bell rang to end recess. The rest of the day Alicia passed in a sort of daze. She did not want to listen to what people said; she wanted to shut out all the awful hurt. She just sat in the class room at her desk, avoiding glancing at Erika and her friends, who sat in the row in front of her. When the bell rang, all the girls huddled together excitedly to discuss what they had gotten Erika for her birthday. It seemed to Alicia that everyone was invited - except her. Having herself nothing to look forward to on the weekend, she just put up the chair on her desk and left the institution. She walked home from school, as she did every day. The leaves had been raked, and the owners had put them in orderly piles out beside their properties to be picked up. Alicia didn ' t care; she walked her way through them, kicking and stamping them as she went. She reached home, and let herself in by the back door, which was always unlocked. In as cheerful a voice as she could manage, she said hello to her mother, who was probably sitting in the den. She took off her coat and hung it on a chair in the hall, and went to the kitchen to get something to eat. Eating always made her feel better anyway. She took some cookies and a glass of milk into the den and sat in a grey rocker, facing her mother. " How was your day? " her mother asked. " " It was okay, " said Alicia. She said it in such a manner that would provoke further questioning from her mother. She hated to volunteer information. Her mother would have to drag today ' s problem out of her. Her mother knew this. " What happened? " her mother persisted gently. The tears began to flow as Alicia related the story to her mother, who sat listening sympathetically. When her daughter had finished, she did not know what to say. She thought she could call Erika ' s mother, but she thought that would probably make matters worse. She saw the awful vulnerability and transparency of her daughter, and wished there was something she could do about it, some way she could make her daughter stronger. She looked at her, eating a cookie and drinking her milk; the tears had closed, but had left huge stains on her face. She did not know what to do for Alicia. Alicia sat looking at her mother, at her ash blonde hair and her softly wrinkled face. She looked at her like the patient who looked at her doctor, expecting a miraculous cure, a magnificent solution to end all hurt. It was not for many years that Alicia would realize that the healing must come from within herself. Her mother tried to cheer her up, and said that she would make her favorite food for supper. This brightened up her daughter a little, and they began to talk of what they could have. It was an hour later when the phone rang. Alicia ' s mother got up from the red sofa she was sitting on, and went to the kitchen to answer it. It was Erika ' s mother. " I ' m so sorry about what happened, " Erika ' s mother said in an extremely apologetic and embarassed voice. " Oh, I see, " responded Alicia ' s mother coolly. " You see, your daughter was invited to Erika ' s party, " insisted Erika ' s mother. " But why did she never get an invitation? " Alicia ' s mother was confused. " What happened to it? " " I ' m so sorry, but you see, Erika ripped it up. " Lisa Stilborn Why Do They Think I ' m Naughty? Bright and early I wake, Ready to have some fun. What could be so improper, For a new day h as just begun! Over the field, off to school My brother, Chris, goes. And over the floor, the milk From my cereal flows. Around the kitchen, On my tricycle I tear. And out the door I go, For only so much can my mother bear. Why do they think I ' m naughty? What have I done so wrong? To God I ' m only one small, lonely note In one big happy song. Rosemary Clyde On the afternoon of Friday, September 19, most of the Grade ll ' s, along with a few Grade 9 ' s and 10 ' s, departed by bus to the Stratford Festival. The group spent a very enjoyable three days there, seeing t wo Shakespearean plays - Twelfth Night and King Lear, We had a chance to see Stratford, and browse through some of the shops. The Stratford trip holds many in- teresting memories . . . who could forget the 8 a.m. breakfasts at MacDonald ' s? Many thanks to Mrs. Hoy, Mrs. Tilson, and Mrs. White, who accompanied us and helped to make the trip a success. Lisa Stilborn In October, the Biology 3A class went on a field trip to Moodie Drive. Equipped with everything from soil sample kits to lunches, these brave nature lovers set forth into the wilderness in the name of Science. This first trip enthused the group so much that they persuaded Mrs. Gundy to take them again in May. 93 What ' s everyone ' s favorite time of year? That week in December . . . exam time, of course! And, just to keep those fond memories fresh in your minds, we ' ve decided to devote a page to them. The moment you looked at that Math exam, you knew you were doomed for failure. And who could ever forget those late nights studying over cups of coffee, or the times when everyone was frantically rushing around, comparing notes with fellow classmates? No doubt, exams will never be forgotten, but just to make sure, we ' ve included this page. rrbite Christmas; piap 97 r SEPTEMBER 4 • School reopens 4 - School opens 13 ■ Coffee House (Ashbury) 14-Avon20K - 19 ■ Grade 11 to Stratford 20 - Coffee House (Elmwood) 27 - United Way Fun Run 3 -.Chi Rho Harvest Hop 4-6 • Labatt ' s Toronto Marathon 5 ■ Chi Rho Eucharist and Lunch 10 - Ottawa Board Cross Country Race 10-13 - Thanksgiving holiday 12 - Sri Chinmoy 17 - Leadership con- ference 17 - Athletic conference 18 - Dance (Ashbury) 28 - Sr. School Cross Country Race 31 - Jr. School Hallowe ' en Party.

On March 6, the dream became a reality, and " Tom Jones " was played at morning assembly. It was such a roaring success that this unlikely group (!) decided to put on an evening performance on April 22, and entered the Independent School Drama Competition, held at Trinity College School, Port Hope, on April 25. Everyone performed extremely well - to the school ' s immense surprise, not to mention the cast ' s, Elmwood captured one of the three festival awards. Congratulations to Chantelle Jenkins, who was named Best Supporting Actress. 102 3ttnior ( nttr laintneiit ■ 1 ■ 1 1 Junior Entertainment Nights - May 21 and 22 - provided much enjoyment for the many people who attended. " Joseph, " numerous plays and skits and other acts were all part of these memorable evenings. Thanks must be extended to all who participated, and especially to the teachers, for giving up their valuable time in order to produce such a work of art. 105 port Captam Standing: Sabine Jurgens.

Dear Elmwood, This year got off to a great start back in the fall, when those green Elmwood track suits became part of the gym uniform. Having House games during lunch periods turned out to be a good idea. Every Thursday, Keller, Fry and Nightingale would sweat it out playing soccer, Germanball, volleyball or basketball. Those sure were fun (occasionally violent) times! In October we had an inter-House cross-country run through Rockcliffe Park for the Senior School, which was won by Keller. There were two race courses and the top runners in each received ribbons and McDonald ' s gift cer- tificates. During the winter months we had an inter-House volleyball tournament, which took place every Wednesday night at Queen Juliana Hall. Fry ended up winning, with Keller second and Nightingale a close third. Many thanks to the three House Sports Captains - Kathy Suh, Sue Wurtele and Elizabeth Sellers - for their organization and spirit. Elmwood has had several school teams competing against other schools in Ottawa and the Valley. Each one brought experiences that I ' m sure the participants will always remember! The first team out was a twelve member. Elm- wood Ashbury running team in September, for the United Way Fun Run, where Mrs. Butler placed third in the female teachers ' division. The next was an Ottawa Citizen Indoor Games team whose relay won their heat. Elmwood sent a 13 member relay team to the City Championship and the Ottawa Valley Gymnastics meets. Eleven runners competed in the Laurentian High School Invitational Raod Race - A 5K course where each girl ran a personal best. The soccer team played in two day long tournaments, two exhibition games, six regular season games, and even made it into the playoffs! Way to go, team . . . lots of fun, exercise and lessons in sportsmanship!! The track and field team went to three meets in mid-May and competed in relay, track, field and long distance events, with some girls qualifying for the Valley Meet. In addition to the interscholastic teams, Elmwoodians have run in road races this year, of distances from six to 26 miles. These races include the Avon 20K, Sri Chinmoy Marathon, Kanata 10 Mile Race, Bonne Bell 10K, and the National Capital Marathon, and also an out-of towner, the Labatt ' s Toronto Marathon. These races were really tests of endurance and determination. Congratulations to all of you! I hope everyone will continue to participate in the sports aspect of Elmwood next year, or will try it out, whether on a school team, House team, or a fun workout after school. The success of this year ' s program is to be credited to Mrs. Butler, who refereed every House game, race and tournament, coached every team, and inspired us by running in each of the road races. Her energy, enthusiasm and spirit are limitless. We thank you for your support and encouragement. I ' ve really enjoyed being Sports Captain this past year . . . best of luck to next year ' s! ! Sabine 108 b trj pronto J la ration And so it was off to Toronto for our first " out-of-towner " on Saturday morning (October 4). We arrived in Toronto, left our bags in our suite, and took off for the Eaton Centre before it closed. Our psyche-up for the race was going to see " The Changeling " that night. The next day, at the marathon, we ran 20K (right, guys?!), pacing Bill Rodgers. The rest of Sunday was spent going up the CN Tower, seeing " Airplane, " and en- countering some typical Torontonians in a certain Colonel Saunders restaurant. But everything has its end - we packed up and left Monday morning, after three of the gang (the wierd ones) went for a 6 a.m. run in Queen ' s Park, while the other two (the lazy ones) slept in. Altogether, it was a really memorable time for all of us. Sabine Jurgens Back Row: Liz Sellers, Sabine Jurgens, Mrs. Butler. Front: Kathy Suh. Paula Gilbert.

Each ran two thirds of the marathon (18 miles), which was the farthest distance every run by Paula. Well done! Above: Lise Paradis, Sabine Jurgens, Mrs Butler. Three runners participated in this year ' s National Capital Marathon - Sabine Jurgens, Lise Paradis and Mrs. Butler. Sabine and Mrs. Butler each ran a half marathon, while Lise did an additional three miles and ran 16. 109 Well The Bonne Bell 10K is a ten kilometre race that was run on a scenic course through Rockclitfe Park. This year, the " short " distance attracted a few more runners, although two of them were unable to run, due to illness and injury. For those that did compete, however, the experience and enjoyment that came with running the race will be something that will never be forgotten.

Ceremonies Closing was once again held in the Mont St. Joseph gymnasium, this year on June 12. The procession was generally the same - the arrival of the official party, speeches, and, of course, the prize giving. Unfortunately, it was raining this year, so everyone had to go into the school; however, everything went very smoothly. Everyone enjoyed both the ceremony and the reception afterwards, so it was a very nice end to the school year. Mr. Vice-Chairman, Mrs. Whitwill, Ladies and Gentlemen, Staff and Fellow Students: We have come to the end of a busy, rewarding, intersting, but not always easy year. It was a different atmosphere that we came back to last fall - Mrs. Aldous was no longer with us. Then, during the course of the First Term, Mrs. Davies and Miss Gwilym left. We were extremely fortunate to their replacements, however; Mrs. Gundy replaced Mrs. Aldous. Mrs. White became the new administrative assistant, and Mrs. McCabe, Mrs. Davis, and our only male teacher, Mr. Yates, joined the Elmwood staff. We all learned to pull together as we settled in to our various jobs, so Elmwood was able to have the usual bake sales, dances, coffee houses, Spirit Week, Sports Day, and something the Students ' Council will never forget - the famous Spice Sale, from which we raised approximately $800 for the Students ' Council. The Grade Thirteens will remember the sale with particular fondness, as the spices were all stored in our classroom! Neither will we soon forget Spirit Week, with the greased balloon race, the cardboard race, the Jello eating contest, and, last but definitely not least, the talent filled Talent Show. This may make it sound as if Elmwood is fun and games - I know my father is nodding his head to that - but such is not really the case. Elmwood has vitality and is a growing concern and more and more we are expanding our various activities - for example, sports and drama. This year, for the first time, the Elmwood soccer team made it to the city playoffs. Track and field is more than holding its own, as is the gymnastics team. Our Grade Nine class entered a city wide competition to promote better nutrition in the schools, and for their efforts, won one of the twenty prizes worth a thousand dollars each. In drama, our Elmwood Theatre Company competed against nine other schools, and Chantelle Jenkins won the award for Best Supporting Actress. Anyone who attended the Junior Entertainment Nights a couple of weeks-ago will appreciate all the talent we have here at Elmwood. Special thanks are due to Mrs. Butler for her hard work and dedication to the sports programs, and to Mrs. Peat, Mrs. Scott, Mrs. O ' Brien and all the others who assisted with drama. As well, Liz Sellers in Grade Eleven has been accepted into the International School of Wales this year - the Atlantic College. She will be one more Elmwood delegate going out into the world. Congratulations and good luck, Liz. Not only have we come to the end of a good year, but for us graduates, it is also the end of a rewarding period of our lives. A period in which almost without noticing the change, we have not only been given the basic subjects required for a modern education, but we have also been taught and encouraged to develop the personal skills which will be so necessary as we leave Elmwood and take our places out in the world. And it is in this very area where Elmwood provides that little extra something to its graduates. It is an area frequently overlooked, as it is not rewarded by prizes, scholarships or other such visible expressions, but where success is seen in the maturity of the individual, the ability to think for one ' s self, the discipline and self confidence to lead as well as to follow. We in the graduating class are all going on to the mixed and various careers of our choices: some to Medicine, some to English, Music, the Sciences or the Arts. Elmwood ' s success as a school is demonstrated by the fact that we are now ready to leave the security and safe atmosphere of the school. Not only ready to leave, but eagerly looking forward to the next step in our life ' s journey. Where this journey will lead us, we do not know, but it seems to me that there are obligations for us to fulfill - first, an obligation to ourselves to live up to our motto " Summa Summarum " - " Highest of the High " ; second, an obligation to our families and to all who have helped and taught us; and third, an obligation to our countries - countries because we have girls here at Elmwood who are from so many different lanes - to become worthy and useful citizens and to play an active part in the affairs of our respective communities. To Liz, next year ' s Head Girl, to her prefects, and to the class: our best wi shes. Do not be afraid of problems; they do go away, even though it does not always seem like it. And all of you, just hang in there together, because then you will have one of the best years of your time here at Elmwood. And to my class, I would like to thank you all for your support and friendship to me and to each other. It was a great year; it had its downs, but they made the ups all the better. And to Amanda and the rest of the prefects, you made a great team and you were fantastic. Thank you. Finally, on behalf of all the 1981 graduating class, I would like to say a sincere thank you to Mrs. Whitwill and all the teaching staff, both of Elmwood and Ashbury. You have all been marvellous and unbelievably patient with us. We are truly grateful and will look back on our time at Elmwood with great pleasure. Thank you all so much.
