ELMWOOD SCHOOL SAMARA 1981-1982 O 1 7 5 EDITOR ' S NOTE The book that you hold before you is the sum total of a year ' s effort and industry. The work and indeed the ideas have not however been ours exclusively. Firstly we must thank Kathy Suh, last year ' s Co-Editor who helped to get us on the right track last September (what ' s a 3-R planner?) and who offered quiet words of reassurance when a deadline(s) was missed. Secondly many thanks go to our resident photographer Mark Whitwill who tolerated our delays and cancelations and always provided the committee with beautiful photographs for any given event (some that even we did not know about). We have also been lucky in that we have been graced with a staff advisor who has provided assistance and encouragement, but who has maintained enough faith in us to allow us to make our own decisions; thank you Mrs. Tilson. Other members of the staff deserve our thanks; Mrs. Sigmund for tolerating our constant interruptions, Mrs. Butler for faithfully stuffing her accounts of sports events in our Samara box, and to Mr. McCabe for his encouragement. The yearbook is a funny thing; even those members of grade 12 who had never wanted to have anything to do with it were hard pressed to avoid the subject as deadlines were missed, write-ups were late and pictures were lost. To them we owe thanks for their input and for not locking the committee in a convenient closet in mid-October. We ' d particularly like to thank Jennifer Cheney, who not only tolerated our ramblings but who was kind enough to illustrate a number of our poems on very short notice, and to Darya Farha, who took time out of her summer to help us. Lastly, thank you to all the contributors, staff and students alike, because it is your input that enriches this book. It has been a year of hard work, but our work is now ended, and it is time for you the reader to survey our efforts.

The only child of Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin, her father was a teacher and head- master of a boy ' s school. When their daughter was three years old the Baldwins moved south to Essex. As a small child, she was educated along with a handful of other local children by a governess in her parents ' home. One might assume that her surroundings, in addition to her fathers ' academic background would have led her into teaching. " On the contrary, " she says, " my uncle was also a teacher, and I thought I ' d had enough of it. " Her ambition was to become a journalist. After having finished her tutelage with the governess, she began studies at Colchester high school; a girls ' school which was a ten mile trek by bus morning and night from the Baldwins ' home. This ended when Mrs. Whitwill was 12 at which point she enrolled in a girls ' boarding school called Wycombe Abbey. While she was at the Abbey, her father died and it became apparent to her that if she were to continue her education, she would have to do so on scholarship. In 1934, she won a scholarship to Oxford. Oxford, according to Mrs. Whitwill turned out to be a bit of a shock. She enrolled to take a three year honors degree in English, and was informed by her tutor in the summer before her first term that should read twelve books of Virgil before September. These books were read in Spain where she filled in the time between high school and college working as an au pair girl. This was an experience that Mrs. Whitwill recalls with mixed feelings; treated as more of a servant than a student, she was given no op- portunity to travel, and was con- tinuously saddled with her em- ployer ' s small child. She was " bored stiff. " She offers good advice for any girl. considering an au pair job: " be sure that the family cares for you. " Her stay did allow her to learn a smattering of Spanish which she has retained and often practices with Elmwood ' s many Spanish- speaking students. After three busy years, she graduated with her degree (M.A. Honors Oxon.). At the time of the Munich Crisis, as Europe was on the threshold of the second world war, Mrs. Whitwill registered as an ambulance driver, and this is the position that she occupied throughout the war. She shared a flat with an Oxford " chum " who was dating a Canadian soldier. One evening Joan Baldwin was in- troduced to a friend of his, a fellow soldier: John Whitwill, who would become her husband in 1941. At the war ' s end, the Whitwills and their first of seven children Mary Lou came to Brandford Ontario. Mrs. Whitwill did not take up teaching until 1963, when her youngest child Sarah, was nine. She soon discovered that she quite enjoyed it. In 1964, the family moved to Ottawa. She had remained in touch with her Oxford " chum " who now was Mrs. BIyth, the headmistress of Elmwood. Mrs. BIyth invited her to join the staff, Mrs. Whitwill accepted, and taught English and history until 1969, when the BIyths moved to England, and she was appointed head- mistress. When asked what she found most enjoyable about her job, she replied " the contact with young people growing up, and with the staff. " The aspect of her job that she finds most difficult is " dealing with parents with unrealistic goals for their children. " She says: " university is not for everyone. " She feels that Elmwood ' s greatest asset is the personal interest of staff in students, " teachers who care. " Like many of us, she concedes its greatest drawback is its lack of space, and inadequate gym and science facilities. Those will come though, she believes, in the future. As to Mrs. Whitwill ' s future, she and her husband have bought a house in Ottawa. She has been offered a teaching position at Elmwood, but plans to wait at least a year before deciding whether to accept it. In the meantime she plans to enjoy her grandchildren, and to relax a little with some of her hobbies, which include sewing crafts, reading history and novels, bicycling, coo ' king and camping. Though she doubts that she will do much more camping, the Whitwills have camped from Ottawa to Vancouver; as she says, " when you have seven children, its the only way to travel. " She also entertains the idea of taking some kind of university or craft course, perhaps to improve her French, or to learn a skill such as upholstering. Today, Mrs. Whitwill ' s seven children; Mary Lou, Elizabeth, twins John and Mark, Paul, Stephen and Sarah are all grown up. A doting grandmother, she has 9 grand- children, and reveals with great pride that her oldest, Deborah last year started university at Western Ontario. To Mrs. Whitwill, we wish all the very best of health and happiness in the years to come. We will all miss her very much. We all hope that she will come back to teach, because she has a tremendous amount to offer. Mrs. Whitwill ' s career as an educator is not ended, neither has she, or will she ever stop learning. Lisa Stilborn HEADMISTRESS ' S MESSAGE Dear Samara friends: Many times I have heard you ask, nay plead, nay beg, for contributions and I don ' t want to be one of those who make your life difficult. Your editors spoke of the things you have learnt this year and I am sure, although I can ' t remember for certain, that one of them must have been patience, patience, and still more patience. Yes, that is a valuable characteristic to acquire, one useful in many a situation. It has been a great privilege over the years to be allowed a little space to use for a message to the school and I am sorry that this will probably be the last time. Who knows however. Maybe I will make, in other years to come, an unsolicited contribution or two, or three or more because I shall certainly be wishing the school good luck and great prosperity as I do now, with a full heart. Mrs. Gundy joins me in a message of good will. My happiest thought is that I leave you all in the caring hands of Mrs. White and Mrs. Gundy. Be as good to them as you have been to me and as they will be to you in the years to come. Mrs. Whitwill 8 Mr. McCabe Mrs. Schmidt Mrs. Tilson Mrs. Peat Mr. Yates Absent: Mrs. Knowlton THE TREES OF KNOWLEDGE SUPPORT STAFF Jan Kerkoerle ELIZABETH ASHWORTH Elizabeth came to Elmwood from Alberta in grade ten, and it ' s been uphill ever since then. Last year she was head of advertising for Samara; this year she has been Head Girl. Grade thirteen has been a year full of memories for the " H.G. " Will you ever forget chocolates, rings or the Queen (the real one and the D.Q.)? Or those terrible math classes, and last but not least, English classes across the road ( ' ' Je crois " )? It ' s been a long hard four years, but you ' ve finally made it! Elizabeth ' s great sense of humour and her ability to overcome all her problems (and everyone else ' s) have kept the class going all year. What would we have ever done without you? Elizabeth plans to go to U of T next year to study science (one of the few crazy people from the class of ' 82). We wish you the best of luck always, and will never ever forget you, H.G.! JUTTA DUNWALD Jutta descended upon us, without forewarning, in November. Jutta, by example, has taught us all to be young sophisticated European ladies, by gosh, we done learned real good! She has surprised Mrs. Heacock with her interesting(?) new form of " art(?) " . This Klein kraut will learnen ze diplomace in arts in the hallowed halls of Ottawa U. We wish you all the best Jutta. SHANNON JAEGER Shannon has grown with Elmwood throughout the past five years. Many a time we have witnessed her talents as she has graced the stage at Elm- wood. Dancer, singer, actress, prefect and expert munch-out artist, Shanunski has learned to adapt to nearly any role. Her aim in life is to drive through Europe in her psychedelic volkswagon in search of contentment and material happiness. Good luck Shannon, will see you in nirvanna. FIONA GALE Our flowery Fiona has been plaguing the walls of Elmwood for eight long years. An artist, actress, prefect and jock, Fiona is a veritable kaleidoscope of interests. We shall never forget the ice cream sale, McKay Lake, school dances, trips to everywhere from McDonald ' s to the D.Q. and of course Polos. Our " Memories " of her will always be sweet. Planning on being a great archeologist, Fiona wants to launch her career at U of T. We ' ll always love you Spee-bo, toodle-ooh. 13 JOSEPHINE LAM WAI YAN Jo came to us this year from Hong Kong. At first she was a very quiet person. That however, was soon to change. As she got to know more Elm- woodians, Jo became more involved in school life and she wasn ' t quiet after all - in fact, she hardly stopped talking! (just kidding, Jo!). Known for her love of biology and classics (right?), Jo brought more spirit and laughter into grade 13 than one could imagine from such a small person. No one will ever forget Mickey Mouse catching eggs or Popeye Jo! Unfortunately, Jo had to leave us before the end of the school year - something which disappointed all of us. But Jo, you ' re in all our minds and none of us will ever forget you. Best of luck with whatever you do - and keep in touch. HILDA PAPARONI Hilda, better known as Lita came to Elmwood two years ago and instantly became a part of Rockcliffe life. That is, Hilda is often seen making her way from Ashbury to Elmwood, late as always, could it be that she spends her time in Ashbury ' s back quad? Oui, moi???! Lita is from Venezuala and with her worldly history has a mastery of three languages. Notorious around Elmwood for her undone tie, her burgundy sweater, her jewelry and her frequent appointments! However Lita is very scholarly in History 5A possibly because of a certain Ashburian named Andy. (He has such . . . Nice eyes! ! !). We all love Lita dearly and I think our beautiful Spanish girl has had a terrific year. BuenasSuerte! LESLIE SAUNDERS Screeching Saunders (our resident screecher) has been amongst our pack for 2 years now and we have been all reminded of it daily. With double- jointed legs and " worthy " thoughts, she has left her mark upon the sound barriers of our school; the echoes will remain for years to come. We ' ll surely miss this nitwit as she " saunders " through Arts at Queen ' s with her collar up and her head in a headband. We wish you the best, as we know you will do well. LYNN ROBERTSON Although Lynn only graced(?) our hallowed halls in grade 12, she managed to become one of us very quickly - don ' t worry, I ' m sure it will pass. She did this by involving herself in all aspects of school life; ethnic coffees, losing yourself in N.Y.C., and of course work, or is that going too far; this represents grade 12 in a nut shell. Now for something really different; grade 13; Stratford; " Does your hair hurt? " Swensen ' s, the D.Q., barking down O ' Connor, playing tennis, Pavarotti, " Brideshead Revisited, " an untimely appendix, Ashbury football games, doctored teas, " are your functions functioning? " " What ' s your elevation? " " . . . all I need at university are 2 wine glasses, 100 year old Grand Marnier and a picnic basket - books? but why? " We hope you will be seen around Toronto, ap- pearing as a trendy bohemian ( " Bohemians don ' t drink 100 year old Grand Marnier out of wine glasses, please! " ). Much love. Peppy (or Preppy). DEBBIE SEROPIAN This short(est) member of our class, Debbie hates to be reminded of the fact that she really is a sawed off midget. Debbie has talked her way in and out of the hearts of millions, and the great mystery surrounding her is how she can eat so much and still maintain her petite trim figure. Throughout the year she has displayed a definite affinity for sitting behind closed doors(!) Working towards her goal of child psychologist, we know (somehow) that she will succeed in this rough, tough world. Best of luck. Deb. MARY SIMPSON Our wee little Mary has inspired us in all sports She has given us new meanings in a soccer ball and has shown us all how to fly high on the mats Unfortunately, not all of us have been able to lane on our feet. Nevertheless, Mary will continue he endeavours in the future as a woman of the sport world, and we all wish her the very best in ob taining her goals. jCAROL I , ' OorCari ' Slie lias now wot things. I distinct hi Ci CAROLANN SWIFT irts., -jll Our Carolann(e) is a 6 year veteran of Elmwood. jfsShe has been chapel monitor and prefect and is ; (|now working her way towards bigger and better ■arthings. Her charitable thoughts are part of her - jdistinct character, just as peanut butter is. Aw -t).heck, Carolann, you ' ll go far. You ' re one tough cookie. KATHYSUH Kathy came to Elmwood in grade 5 and has made it to grade 13. She has lived through a lot in those nine years, both in the gym on the soccer field and especially in the classroom. Her frequent perfect papers are nothing to be snickered at. She has proved herself in academics and sports many times over. But after putting that aside we see a very warm, gentle and terribly funny yellow- horned kid. She will always be remembered, especially by those of us who know the smell of wet wool, as one of the best water warriors in the school. In fact it could even be called her favourite pastime. In her final year at Elmwood she became Senior Prefect and held her position with dignity. She is one of the nicest people I know and will always be missed by who loved and knew her well. All the best in the future Kathy, you ' ve earned it. 17 NINATAIB This is a first year for this (little) Malaysian dish . . . However her true self was not openly revealed until she proved herself a tiger on the playing field. A notorious cookie friend and a connaisseur of imported cigarettes, Nina (when at school) can usually be found studiously working in the classroom beyond. She is planning to take on the world . . . starting at Carleton U. with political science. Best of luck in all your endeavours. PENELOPE WOODS Miss Penel is a third year classic of Elmwood (skipping a few years in between). With penny loafers, alligator shirts, and a headband, Penel has danced her way through school with a Sony Walkman ... A naturally vivacious, warm woman, will we ever forget those Tobasco nights? Hate sessions? Sebastian? Of course Penel will do well when she goes on the road as a dancer for The Jam. We wish you all the best in the years to come. 18 BARBARA PACZYNSKI Bobby or Basia is of Polish origin and has been at Elmwood for two years. Born in Quebec, her heart remains in Montreal. Bobby complains of Ottawa ' s boring night life yet she ' s managed to party pretty well this year. For those who don ' t know her, Bobby ' s a little girl who drives a green machine called " Eugene " (foreign sports carl) packed with 14 Elmwood and Ashbury students on their way to the " Polonez. " A green-eyed supporter of Solidarity, she loves the " Stones, " ' Deux Pierrot ' and heavy political discussions. She claims to love Vienna for some reason or other (eh?) . . . Anyway, Bob, good luck next year, keep Eugene on the road (to McGill?) and never forget the great times with the so-called " Group " Powodzenia! Seras siempre miamiga. 19 GRADE 12HJ Back Row: Darya Farha, Fiona McLeod, Christiana loeng, Barbara Paczynski, Olivia Alberto, Lynda Nadolny.

We have certainly excelled in house spirit and have lived up to our motto ' friendship to all ' with great ease. We even managed to save up some money from our gluttonous donut, ice cream and bake sales. My best wishes to you and many thanks for making the school year fun for all of us.

Although our numbers increased greatly, we never lost sight of our unity as a house. We were always able to enjoy every activity with lots of spirit and en- thusiasm(?). Keller ' s turnout at the house games was always terrific and our house motto " Fairl Play " was never forgotten. Everyone, all year long, remained cooperative and willing to participate which made my job so much easier. My thanks go to both the senior and the junior sport ' s captains and to my vice house head.

The junior Nightingales deserve a special thanks for their unending (and deafening) enthusiasm. I ' d also like to thank Paula Gilbert who at various times during the year patiently explained to me why was out. Good luck to Darya and encourage her as much as you did me. With Love, Lynn 42 Dear Elmwood: This year Students ' Council had a mildly successful chocolate selling campaign. This brought out some of the " best " sales people in the school. We also introduced a new line of school rings which were more successful than the chocolates. This year our Spirit Week was one of the minor victories, something that actually went as it was planned. Student ' s spirit was fantastic which helped the rest of the week. The Talent Show, although well- received was not entirely Elmwood ' s production, Ashbury had a part. Above all we would like to thank the support we have received from the Student ' s Council members who appeared at 8:30 every Friday morning. Best of Luck to next year ' s representatives.

" Try to listen to other people. Try to understand what he or she is saying - if you do not agree immediately try to understand why he or she is saying it. " Juay van Arkel This is what the foster parents plan of Canada tries to promote through its various participants, such as Sui Sang. Our job as members of Sui Sang has been to raise money, through activities to send to our two foster children: Warisman in Indonesia and Ayan Meine in Turkey. A brighter future for these two children relies on Elmwood ' s support, and we rely on yours. I Joanne Bech, Joanne Goneau POUND The members of senior and junior pound perform a much needed and appreciated service for the Elmwood community. Much of their spare time at school is spent keeping track of socks, shoes, shorts, shirts, sweaters, bloomers, scarves, mitts, gloves a nd even kilts that are left somewhere in the school by students. We are sure that they will never forget that annual sale of lost goods, when everyone ' s long-forgotten possessions are dredged out of the pound cupboards and displayed in the dining room, and most of us try to steal back our goods without paying the fee to pound. Certainly this responsibility would give one a unique understanding of human nature. Thank you for a job well-done. 3D Liz Preston, Rachel Carson, Quentin Woloschuk.

The Senior library continues to stoutly maintain its identity despite also functioning as lunch room, study, meeting room, film studio etc. . . . There is a cheerful look provided by the new orange chairs and tables, the shelves, containing much new material are full (some to overflowing), the magazine rack displays a fuller range of periodicals and the new revolving paper-back book-rack (donated by the Mothers ' Guild) provides attractive light reading. Thanks should be given to the many people who have passed on books of interest to the library. Mrs. Mary Laidler in particular has enriched our fiction section with a great number of excellent contemporary hard back novels. Many thanks, of course, also go to the Mothers ' Guild who maintain both the Senior and Junior libraries with their generous contributions from the Super Sale. In time, perhaps, Elmwood will have a library or Resource Centre that is only that and fully that. In the mean- time we have an attractive room where study, research and imaginative release through reading can be rewardingly pursued. And that, after all, is what a library is all about. Mrs. Tilson Left to Right: Kathy Suh, Christina Campbell, Lisa Stilborn, Jill Baker. This year the team got off to a very early start, with our first and only game on the 26th of September. The team, composed of Jill Baker, Christine Campbell, Lisa Stilborn and Kathy Suh spent the two weeks frantically pouring over countless trivia books, quiz books and art books, in the hope of instilling ourselves with some much needed last minute knowledge. When passing each other in the hall, we would trade questions back and forth: " okay I ' ve got a really good one: what ' s Gary Grant ' s real name? " or " who invented the blender? " Unfortunately we did not emerge victorious but A.Y. Jackson did not win without a good fight. Many thanks to Mrs. Horwood-Jones, whose encouragement and knowledge are many faceted. As for the team ' s future, we ' ll try again next year. Comme on dit en franpais: " II ya toujours demain! " Lisa Stilborn BELL RINGER AND CHAPEL MONITOR Left to Right: Rachel Soar, Judy Korecky, Robin Tavel. Susan Westley Bell ringer and chapel monitor are two much-needed services at Elmwood which often go unthanked. Bell ringers are obliged to always have their eye on a watch (perhaps they are not the only ones) in order that the bell is rung at the correct time. To be a chapel monitor, one must be at prayers, (on time!) and must yell " pass your sheet to the end of the row please! " Its a frustrating job because half the school is either not awake yet, or catching up on news with their neighbors. Thank you, for doing your jobs so well, and helping to keep the school run on an even keel. Danielle Thompson, Assistant Martha Gall SENIOR DANCE Back; (Left to Right): Shelly Donaldson, Mme Sabourin, Darya Farha. Front: Jenny Leslie, Lynn Robertson. Dear Senior students: With your help we have, once again, survived another round of social wonders(!!!). Despite an abundance of the usual parties we started the year with a surprisingly suc- cessful Hallowe ' en dance, our thanks to those who came in costumes - a lot of them were super ' pumpkin head ' the Indians, the gypsies, the preachers and the prostitutes, thanks! The next term cropped up quicker than ever, and is best remembered by our annual Valentine ' s Day Dance, red streamers and all. The attendance for this was quite respectable and under the encouragement of ' budding roses ' all the carnations were sold (or taken). We finally made it to third term, bringing with it our most notable event, notably the lack of attendance, however despite a rather large senior party, and with all our thanks to our loyal supporters in grades 9 and 10, we broke even, but more importantly we all had fun. The theme was the ' Tacky Tourist ' an easy, fun theme to dress up for - a few didn ' t have to dress up (I ' m sure we can all admit to having brought something tacky at one time or another, failing this, our parents have!). Almost everyone tried to be tacky, and it turned out to be T.T.F.W., even the punch was tacky - but good! Although we didn ' t accumulate nearly that vast wealth of last year, we had fun, and hopefully you did too. And now for the usual round of thanks - to our supporters (you dummy) to all those who helped in any way, to the people in the front offices for putting up with our insanities, and to all the staff who came (but didn ' t make their presence felt TOO strongly) to support, supervise, or just to look on. Many thanks to Mrs. Gundy and Mrs. Whitwill for being at every dance and for being in the right place at the right times. Our thanks especially to Mme Sabourin who managed to keep, or get, us straight on dates etc. . . . and to the rest of the committee, what can I say - Thanks. Good Luck next year Love, us(S.D., D.F„ L.J. , J.J. L.!) JUNIOR DANCE The dance committee had a fairly successful year. Our first dance, held at Elmwood was a smash. The turnout was very good, as was the music, and a good time was had by all. The second dance was also held at Elmwood, and it too was enjoyable, and a great financial success. The junior dance committee actually made EXTRA money which was donated to the Sui Sang Committee. Unfortunately the dance that was to be combined with a barbecue and a baseball game never occurred, but it was a good year anyway. Many thanks to Mr. Sherwood and the Ashbury junior dance committee. Roberta Rodger-Bouchard Back Row: (Left to Right): Pippa Banister, Ashwina Bijoor, Lara Wilson. Front Row: Michelle Hearn, Jackie Likins, Barbara Toth. FORMAL Seated: Lynn Robertson, Mrs. White. Dear Page: We just wanted to thank you for allowing pictures of the joint Elmwood- Ashbury formal to appear on you. Although you weren ' t there, I can assure you that it was a great time. The country club did a fantastic job and credit is due to Mrs. White, Elizabeth Ashworth, Reverend Green and Mitch Rosenberg for their hard work during the year. Good luck to next year ' s committee as you ' ll have a tough time topping this one. Lynn Robertson Head of the Formal Committee 48 JUNIOR ENTERTAINMENT These v ere yet two more highlights in a drama filled year, the senior drama competition easily distin- guished from the Talent Show by its lack of Ashbury content. Both were jolly and amusing (though the Talent Show was considerably raunchier), in many cases demonstrating people ' s ability to devise original material at very short notice. The Talent Show also had its musical side, with drummers, guitarists and singers; " if I were a rich man, deedle- deedle dum . . . " The senior drama competition offered a chance for the school ' s budding playwrights to try out their material, and all met with great approval from students and staff alike. 51 In the two years since it was founded, the Elmwood Theater Company (ETC) has enjoyed remarkable success. It began last year by staging one act of Fielding ' s " Tom Jones " which captured an award for one of its players at the Independent School Drama Festival. This year it staged not one but two plays; Babel Rap and Big X Little Y. Actors and stage crew alike worked diligently all winter; evening and weekend practices were frequent. When spring rolled around though, they attained much deserved results, as Big X Little Y was selected best play at this year ' s In- dependent School Drama Festival. Congratulations to Mrs. Scott and to all the members of the ETC. We ' re very proud of you. 52 JUNIOR DRAMA Grade 5 and 6 Back Row: Diane Burgess, Elanor Brodie, Julie-Anne Rickerd, Lisa Hillary. Second Row: Stephanie Pecher, Sarah Young, Heidi Staseson. Front Row: Lisa Roberts, Susanne Gossage, Margaret Grodde, Laura Schmidt. This year Mrs. Sheppard continued to give drama lessons to those interested from grade 5 to 8. The response was enthusiastic as was too the participation of the young actresses in the classes which involved mime, play-reading, mood-acting and poetry reciting. The classes also entailed preparation for Junior Entertainment night, the prodigious event taking place on the 9th and 10th of March. Following the tradition of the school Junior Entertainment night was a bubbling success. Mrs. Scott organized the whole affair with lots of help from Mrs. O ' Brien and although it was a long evening they managed to keep it running smoothly and even relatively quietly. It was an evening of variety with music (thanks to Mrs. Cry) singing (Mrs. O ' Brien ' s choir), mime, poetry and plays in both French and English, in which the aforesaid drama group were greatly involved and indeed made up a good part of the evening. Eminent performances within the drama group were given by Kathy Stewart, Mathilde Hahn and Margaret Grodde. Memorable also were the heart warming productions of grade 3 and 4. I have it on the best authority that Mrs. Sheppard enjoyed teaching her group and would like to thank them for their dedicated zeal to the cause. The school gives a big thank you to Mrs. Chance and all the junior teachers who worked so hard and gave so much to the preparation and production of the two evenings.

The Elmwood choir is rapidly approaching fame and fortune! This year our numbers have swelled noticeably and our appearances have been received with even more public recognition than last year. In early December, to inspire the worthy citizens of Ottawa with the merry spirit of the season, the choir, under the talented direction of Mrs. O ' Brien and with the accompaniment of our professional pianist, Mrs. Staceson sang at the Rotunda in the Parliament Buildings. We sang some well-loved Christmas carols and introduced an unusual new one; ' The Three Kings ' which combined two harmonized melodies into the one hymn. We were filmed for the news, but unfortunately the lights, so vital to the camera, did not work, so the people of Ottawa were deprived of the choir ' s angelic voices in their living rooms. However, after our successful performance at the " House on the Hill " we were taped in our over-used Elmwood gym for theCBC radio. In the second term, on February 28th, the choid charmed the parishioners of the Ashbury chapel with the organ accompaniment played beautifully by Mrs. Horwood-Jones. This was a lenten service and we sang appropriate hymns from our own hymn books and of course ' Let There Be Peace On Earth. ' Nine days later, after much hard work on the part of our conductor and ourselves we sang two lovely songs at Junior Entertainment and received an Encore(!) on Wednesday night. Our two songs ' The Rainbow Connection ' and ' Evening Rondeau ' were well-chosen well-loved and evidently well-received. Our last occasion was to fill our lungs and sing on Closing Night, which cannot be described. We sang ' The Rose ' with all of our hearts, as it was a gift to Mrs. Whitwill, and expressed both the love and the sadness that we feel at her departure. A Big Thanks to Mrs. O ' Brien who has nurtured inspired and made the Elmwood choir what it is.

Students were not the only ones to dress up; most of the junior school teachers donned some version of the Elmwood uniform, tunics with some very ' non-regulation ' shirt. Students were also treated to lunch in the dining room which was decorated complete with carved pumpkins and candles for the occasion. 58 59 January 15 - Coffee House at Elmwood January 26 - Senior School watched French films at the Towne Cinema January 22- Grade 11 trip to Quebec City February 5 - Presentation of A Midsummer Night ' s Dream for grades 8 through 10 February 8- Half-term holiday February 9-12- Spirit Week February 13 - Valentine ' s Dance at Elmwood February 19 - Junior school skating outing, followed by a dance that evening February 23 - Canadian Math Competition February 15-17 - Grade 6 winter camping at Brown Lake Once again Spirit Week presented the ideal cure for the midwinter blahs.

These included pillow fights on the beam, greased balloon races, three legged races, house tugs of war and a staff-student volleyball game and of course the obstacle course. A number of other activities were also organized. The Talent Show was held on Wednesday, and that evening there was skating on the canal for both Elmwood and Ashbury seniors. On Saturday morning there was a game of touch football (in the snow?) followed by the Valentine ' s Dance that evening. 61 SPRING March 9- Euclid and Descartes Math contests May 3-8- March9-10- Junior Entertainment May9- March 11 - Senior School health day - morning Senior School drama festival - afternoon May 10 - April 17- Entrance and scholarship exams May 14- April22- Elmwood students compete in music festival May 17- April24- SUPER SALE May 18- April30- French contest at Carleton Commonwealth Conference Big X Little Y and Babel Rap performed at the Alumni theater I.B. exams begin Junior school public speaking contest Gauss Math Contest Grade 8 trip to Quebec City PIANO RECITAL The Elmwood piano recital, held on May 17, featured the many virtuosos of piano teacher Mrs. Cry. Students from grades 3 to 12 played a wide variety of classical selections which included both solos and duets. The evening was enjoyable and ran very smoothly, and the students long hours of practice helped to do credit to their teacher. SUPER SALE It has become a tradition; each year the Mothers ' Guild collects all of our junk, somehow organizes it into something respectable that impresses us so much that •we just have to buy it all back. This year was no ex- ception. There were bargains galore including records, books, clothes, shoes, sports equipment, white elephants (junk), and of course baked goods. The profit this year was eleven thousand dollars, up again from last years total. For those who liked to speculate, there were raffle tickets to be had, the first prize being a weekend in Montreal. The sale, it would seem, is destined to succeed until the Elmwood community runs out of junk, and that, is unlikely. It is the students who benefit though, and thank you to the Mother ' s Guild for putting up such a tremendous effort.

WHITE APPOINTED HEADMISTRESS Margaret Filson was born in Brighton, a product of the post-war baby boom. Both the primary and co-ed grammar schools that she attended were of the experimental type which became popular during that period. In both cases she was among the first group of students to be subjected to the new programs, a true " guinea pig, " she says however, that both were excellent. Following grammar school, she attended the University of Man- chester where she enrolled in joint honors in French and drama. After a time she dropped the drama and opted simply for French. Her beautiful accent in French is the result of several summers spent in France, including some time spent at Montpelier University. After graduating with her degree, she was offered jobs in the executive trainee branches of both Harrod ' s and Marks and Spencer ' s. By that time she was no stranger to work, having held jobs since she had been thirteen. These included wait- ressing, cooking (at a sailing school) and stints as a shop clerk and barmaid. She says that many of her hotel and restaurant jobs awakened her to the seedier side of life. Rather than accepting the positions that were offered to her, she taught for a year in Liverpool to a class of nine year olds. " After a year, " she says, " I was caught. " When the year was up she moved to London to be closer to her future husband, a Canadian doing graduate work. In London she taught for six years at a school in the tough East end, which she enjoyed thoroughly. " Somewhere in here " she was married. Her husband had taken a position with the Bank of England, but after a time wished to return to Canada. She had planned to teach for a year when she arrived in Ottawa but soon discovered she was going to have a child. She took four years off from teaching, during which time she had two children; Matthew and Kate, in addition to raising two infants she took courses at Carleton, learned German and ran a co-op nursery school. She says that she is ill-suited to being a housewife, in spite of the fact that she enjoys sewing and cooking tremendously. " I ' m an over- achiever, everything had to be just right. " It was at university that she found out about Elmwood through a Mrs. Schultz, who then taught at the school. She informed her that there was an opening in the trench department and en- couraged her to apply for the position. An interview later, Mrs. White joined the staff and started teaching in January of 1976. Since then she has taught French to grades 3 to thirteen. Looking back, she feels her most glorious year was the one when she taught part- time; " everyone had wonderful food and the house was immaculate " she says. Three years ago the position of vice-principal was vacated when Mrs. Aldous moved to Winnipeg, and was filled by Mrs. Gundy. At this time Mrs. White was asked to take over Mrs. Gundy ' s former job. Since that time she has worked in administration in addition to her teaching responsibilities. When asked about her appointment as the new headmistress, she says she is quite ex- cited and feels " quite privileged and a little apprehensive. " We wish you the best of luck Mrs. White.

Tara Morrison GIANT SPACE TOOL OF THE FUTURE First there is the countdown, then there is the launch and the Space Shuttle Columbia will be in space for a second time. This flight will be very important because it will be the first time that the Canadian Space Arm will be on board. The Space Arm weight three hundred and sixty kilograms and is over fifteen metres long. It can move a load with a mass of twenty-nine thousand, five hundred kilograms, and as big as eighteen point three metres by four point six metres. The arm will be used to put satelites into orbit and to get them back if they need to be fixed. The space arm will also be used to help build future space stations. The Canadian Space Arm, which can be used for up to ten years and one hundred missions, is a very important contribution to the success of future space exploration.

Laura Schmidt 78 PRISILLA THE WATCH TURKEY Once there was a little tat turkey named Prisilla who was to be the main course at the McCain family for Thanksgiving dinner. Just before Thanksgiving the McCains went out to a party leaving poor Prisilla in the yard to fatten. Poor Prisilla was of course upset, because she knew she was to be eaten the very next day. As Prisilla was sitting in the dark she heard a noise at the side of the house. She saw three shapes trying to sneak into the window. Prisilla was scared and gobbled loudly flapping her wings. The robbers were terrified and ran up the street. The McCains arrived back at this moment and saw Prisilla chasing the robbers. So Prisilla was not eaten and became a valued pet. The McCains placed a sign in their yard that read, " BEWARE VICIOUS WATCH TURKEY! " MelanieCronk MARTIN MARTIN MY LITTLE BROTHER Martin, Martin, my little brother, Decided he wanted to chase his Mother.

She decided to get up, and walked over to the shore of the lake. Night had fallen, making it resemble a wrinkle greyish blanket. The water swished up against the pebble shore with a sound that was faintly reassuring contrasted with the overplayed song that she could still hear in the background. Beyond the lake were grey lumps disguised as hills. During the day they were bright; covered in grass and trees; neither dull nor monotonous as they were now. For a moment she con- templated a walk through the shallow water, but it seemed a lot of trouble to take off her shoes and roll up her pants just in order to get her feet wet. The sky was clouded and starless. As a child she had gazed at it with wonder and amazement, but tonight she sought an answer to a question she did not even know, and that she was surely too cynical to accept. The sky had a strangely non-committal look to it tonight; it promised nothing and denied nothing. A year ago she had been here and stood in nearly this very spot; then, like someone who can only see what is immediately in front of them, she had known exactly what she wanted. Tonight she hadn ' t any idea what she wanted, but was certain that she didn ' t have it. Sitting down on a rock she was reminded of the Virginia Slims cigarettes advertisement; " you ' ve come a long way. Baby " and chuckled. She supposed that this could be said of her. As a small child, she had been shy, insecure, constantly seeking the approval of her peers and constantly faltering. She had conquered that, covering her fears and insecurities with a mask of self-assurance and invulnerability. It had been successful, others believed it, and so did she - most of the time. Acutely sensitive, she tempered it with strength where her own self was concerned, and did her best to retain it in her dealings with others. She was termed a " success, " liked by many, respected by most, perhaps even admired by some and envied by others. She was lucky, she knew that, but any recognition that she had ever received was the result of hard work; things had not always been easy. She thought of the plaque that hung in her study at home which said " the man worthwhile is the man who can smile when everything else goes wrong. " This was her philosophy, admirable but fatiguing. Tonight she was tired of having held her chin up, and would it not have upset the people she was with, she would have screamed. They were her friends, though tonight they appeared as strangers. The barrier that stood between herself and them was of her doing, she felt. She could not think of a way to convey to them the way she felt, she didn ' t quite understand it herself. Besides when she tried to explain how she felt, she rationalized it to the point where the listener or listeners were confident that she had everything under control; not tonight. She was frayed, exhausted and empty from work, worry and exasperation, and could quite happily have gotten up and run away, had she not had things to do or people she was obligated to. In any case she hadn ' t any idea where she would go. She wanted this year to end; then she could place it at the back of a drawer. A few years later, she would recover it, congratulate herself for having endured the peaks and the valleys with the sense of perspective that increases with experience. And she would lie to her friends and say how wonderful it was to be young. Silent tears of weariness streamed down her cheeks. How odd, that she who comforted many and shared their problems should cry alone. Her throat felt choked with restrained emotion, and her head pounded, but the crying gradually ceased. She felt a little better she supposed, though hardly relieved. She got up to her feet, and pulled her sweater closer against the late evening chill, and started to make her way back to the group. Tomorrow, she will feel better, she hoped. With that thought, she wiped away the mascara that she was certain had smeared below her eyelids, and joined her friends.

A shiny new penny sails through the air and echoes deep within. Attached is a wish for peace and love which all men desire and need. The hope of the world goes with thee.

Whispsof wind skimming over roof tops, spraying snow into the turbulent air, A desolate trail of footprints, which had at one time crashed through the icy surface having splintering fibres but now, only an image of civilization remain. Along the dimly lit street the towering street lights flicker as the delicate snowf lakes float to the ground. Trees moaning in the wind, their branches stiff and imprisoned by clear, brittle ice. Their waving fingers crying for help as they sway back and forth. Breaking the placed silence, dormant heaps of metal stationed on the side of the road, roar to life- sending pungent exhaust to gree an awakening world. Paula Gilbert LOVE As she sat reflecting all the lost years, and ones yet to come - tears slowly trickled down her face as she recalled that someone special - His sparkling eyes, warm smile and gentle laugh. The long walks among the autumn leaves sprayed upon the asphalt.

Emerging from the past comes the present, where she sits in solitude, separated from him forever but the pleasant memories will last to eternity. Paula Gilbert DOROTHY IN THE CITY Dorothy lived alone in a big city on the east coast. She was young and pretty and had a good job as the secretary to an important executive. She had an extensive wardrobe and an airy apartment with a view over the river and its own washer and dryer. Dorothy also had a car, which she used on weekends for country outings with some of her many acquaintances, whose names were all neatly listed in her address and telephone book. Sometimes Dorothy spent the morning staring out of her living room window, watching the light play on the river and wishing to drink up some of its playfulness, its beauty, that reminded her of diamonds. Sometimes she telephoned her parents and told them all about her adventures in the city, Dorothy was content. Until one day things changed for Dorothy. It was the summer time and the days were long and pleasure filled. Those were her days of cold wine in the early morning and cigars at dusk. She slept late on Sundays, the air conditioner blowing over her body wound round with cool sheets. Until one day things were not the same. Dorothy was at the supermarket. Opening her wallet to pay for the sugar she had bought, she saw that she had only a few dollar bills with her. Her breathing quickened as she handed over the money, and picking up her bag, ran to her car. She buried her shaking hand deep in her purse, groping for her bank book. Finally she felt its plastic smoothness and pulled it out. She turned to the correct page and saw that ?he had only one hundred dollars. Instantly images of sleepiness, the innumerable liquid dawns and dusks came to her mind, and she was paralyzed with fear. She knew they would be no longer. Her bag now felt repulsive, the last of the luxuries had tried to bring about ruin. She shoved the bag aside and started the car, gripping the wheel. It seemed an eternity until she reached the apartment door. Gasping and tripping she arrived at her desk and began to make lists; food, clothing, rent, miscellaneous, until all the necessities and small pleasures of her life were tallied up on the notebook before her. It ' s the apartment, she thought which must go first. With a frantic sigh that hinted at remorseful tears, she scanned the room. She did not see each thing in it individually, but saw it all at once. She saw her playful lifestyle, her happy days, her silent satisfaction in that one glance around the rooms. She rushed to the window and leaned her whole weight against it so that she could look down and watch the tiny cars below, the insubstantial figures that seemed to slide across the streets, the green ink dots of trees. Suddenly it seemed that she was falling, spiraling toward the hard ground beneath, the motion of her limbs futile and small against the big sky, filled with moving clouds, and she now clutched her face, her cool and taut fingers pressing her eyelids shut. The next day Dorothy hunted for a new apartment. She walked up and down the burning sidewalks, a newspaper held out in front of her. She drove from street to street each time fin- ding nothing to comfort her. Each time she found small dark rooms, the wallpaper stained from leaks and the floor sprinkled with dry plaster. Each time, the landlord took her up, and leaned in the doorway, wiping his sticky hands on his undershirt and quoting rent without any movement of the eyes from the plaster sprinkled floor. Anonymous Finally she found an apartment that was not quite as dirty or darK as tne others. It had no big window, but many dusty lights and pink walls. When she had agreed to take it the landlord smiled, and called his wife, who hurried up the stairs with a box of turkish delight. Soon Dorothy moved into the new apartment. She set up her strangely out of place furniture and sold what she had no place for. After work she would climb the stairs wearily and fling open her door so that it knocked against the coat rack with a loud clang. Then she would set to work cleaning and rearranging and unpacking. She lived without luxuries and recorded her expenses on a pad next to her bed. At night she flung herself at the mattress, her burning face buried against the coolness of the sheets. But this was a bad neighbourhood. The night was filled with the strange sounds of police sirens and torn newspapers flying down the oil-stained streets. But the most penetrating noise came from the floor above her own where an old woman lived. Dorothy had seen her toothless dim face peering at her around corners before and imagined it now as her low animal-like moans crept through the floorboards to her bedroom, filling the air with a terrifying dread. In the morning as she was going down the worn marble stairs, she met the landlord, and grabbing his arm to stop him, she asked about the old woman. " Ah, well, she is I think, crazy. - you know. " he tapped his temple with an earnest look. " It ' s hard to sleep with her chanting and moaning all night, " said Dorothy, " I need my sleep. " The landlord gazed sympathetically at the ground. " Yes, yes many of the other tenants complain. But I can do nothing. She ' s an old woman. " He shrugged and continued down the stairs, the water in his pail spilling over the sides and landing with a soft slap on the marble. That day was payday, Dorothy was more lighthearted than she had been in weeks. She hummed as she worked, and peeked inside her crisp envelope. Her finances were in order. She kept her bankbook on her desk so that she could open and close it, and be lulled by the numbers inside. That day her boss asked her to dinner, and she accepted, welcoming back a forgotten sensation. They went to a restaurant, and afterwards they went dancing. She held him close to her and moved impulsively to the rhythm of the music, so that she almost forgot what she had suffered. Back at her building, she flung open the door and strode to the stairs. The landlord sat reading on the landing, " Cease Fire Ignored " blared the headline of his paper. Dorothy put on her nightgown, its soft cling making her feel safe. She descended beneath the sheets. And then the moaning of the old woman began, her pitiful moans that told of the loneliness of black nights and sleeplessness. The cries cut into Dorothy and she fought back, thrashing between the covers so that all she could hear was the sound of linen rustling. Finally she lay, silently down her shining face. But no, she could not give up, she crossed the room and put on a record. It ' s trumpet sounds hid the voice of the old woman, and encircled Dorothy in her small room. Sitting up she saw the yellow corsage she had been wearing that evening still pinned to her dress. Unfastening it she rolled into a ball on the bed, and pressed it passionately to her nose, the fragrance of the flowers intoxicating her. She brought it closer so that it was nestled against her chest, and closed her eyes, grinning all the while.

With it we had our fair share of vic- tory, glory, defeat and frustration. In the inter school competitions, we sent our teams out to play basketball, volleyball and soccer as well as to compete in gymnastics, running and track and field. Congratulations to all those who participated as we held our heads high and made a good name for ourselves. Intramural games started off stronger than ever with the grade nines making the turnout incredibly good. We played soccer, volleyball, baseball, ' sockey ' and floor hockey. Sport ' s Day was another great success with a tennis tournament as another addition to the sports program. My thanks go to the sports captains and to Mrs. O ' Brien, Mrs. Knap and of course Mrs. Butler for their organizational help and constant support.

The junior volleyball team competed in one major tour- nament at Pinecrest, where they fought valiantly, doing progressively better in their matches. Their efforts culminated in a narrow 14-15 loss. This is quite an accomplishment when the team had been given no prior opportunity to practice in a full size gym. Keep up the good fight!

TERRY FOX RELAY Elmwood entered two junior teams - each made up of five girls who competed along with two Ashbury teams in the Terry Fox Relay. The run took place along the parkway, and featured entries from forty schools. In the end, the Elmwood-Ashbury teams faired very well, - one placing 8th, and the other eleventh in the field, on a rain filled day. Well done. CITIZEN ' S INDOOR GAMES The junior relay team, comprised of Betsy Gall, Nora Gor- man, Caro Molson, Jennifer Hopkyns, Anne Turner and Fiona Doetsch, came within one second of qualifying for the finals, and placed a very respectable 18th out of 34 competitors. Fiona Doetsch was entered and ran in the 800 metres, run- ning a very good race. Mrs. Butler 97 As I know everybody has learned our first basketball squad had a brilliant and outstanding season, (we even had uniforms with REAL numbers on them). With almost no practice whatsoever and a questionable amount of skill, we played our best against teams whose players resembled those huge amazons and whose fans were somewhat less than polite. In fact one of our best players was bitten by an overly zealous opponent trying to capture the ball. Although our first games were lost, we did not lose hope - we had to win sometime! Finally, in an exhibition game, the team, at its stupendous best, valiantly overcame insurmountable odds to reign victorious! Many thanks go, of course, to Mr. Yates (our fabulous and demanding coach), and our one woman cheering section: Jean. In closing, we ' d just like to say: WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR BROOKFIELD! ! !

The two contests have acquainted us with certain areas where we can improve our skills and we WILL do so! As the competition continues the team ' s uprightly sportsmanship and swelling skills will further Elmwood ' s distinction as a school of character and deter- mination. After an excruciating, exhausting yet effective week of precise, proficient, and productive practices, the volleyball team set forth to take up the chanted challenge issued by the obliging op- position from Nepean High School. The stupendous struggle was not decided until three magnificent models of tenacious teamwork had left Elmwood shockingly short by the miniscule margins of 4 points and points in their final games of this most exhilarating, exciting and exacting exhibition of spirited sportsmanship. After a further, furtive, furious fusion of their collected, collated capacities intensified through an extensive, ex- pansive exposure to the tec- tonic, technical teaching techniques of their obstinate, obsessed, observing overseers, the glimmering, glorious, glamourous gladiators from Elmwood set forth in their persistent, persuasive per- spiring pursuit of that illusive illuminous initiation into victory. However, the obscure, obstreperous, obtuse obstacle called Commerce High School denied them from their " Holy Grail " temporarily turning them away with a disagreeable, disappointing, disheart- ening dismissal by the inappreciable, in- considerable, insignificant margin of two puny points as the valiant, valourous participants succumbed in the pivotal match by the narrowest of possible margins: 15-13. 100 Thank you girls, we ' re very proud of you . . . see you at 7:45 Monday morning. The determined damsels of destiny from Elmwood after but a single, sincere, signi- ficant practice jour- neyed out into the un- certain, uncomfortable, uncomplimentary, un- compromising, un- concionable, un- controllable dwelling place of the day ' s opposition: Ecole Secondaire Champlain. The sprightly, spirited sprites from our school defied their aggressively, aggrandized agents with exacting, exciting, exotic examples of exceedingly exceptional excellence that lasted through four, forbidding, fortifying and formidable forays. Yes, I did make mention of the number four. They have drunk from that elusive, elysian, elixir called VICTORY! The third game of this unrivalled, unparalled, unequated competition was con- fidently confiscated by our improving and sud- denly imposing imps who firmly fashioned a 15-4 decision. The Eagles of Elmwood have found their feathers; wish them well. The spontaneous, spirited, sports from Elm- wood took their sporadic, speechless, spectacle on a tough tour of two oppressive, opinionated, opportune opponents conveniently concealed at Woodroofe and Sir Wilfrid Laurier High Schools. Our team approached each confrontation with their usual consistent, consuming confidence which was meant to contaminate, confuse and confound our would-be conquerors. The con- secutive, concentrated, concise contests con- cluded with a series of uncomfortable, un- deserved, unforgiving, unpitying underscores that ranged for a 15-0 lame lambasting to a 17-15 shattering shortcoming. The delicated, delirious, delightful delegation of spluttering, spotaneous sportswomen bounced and bounded into perfect parallels of paralyzed paragons attempting to entertain and oppose the Rams of Rideau High School. On this day the crusty crowd of supposed supporters were the most exquisite examples of uncivil, uncourteous, uncouth boors that we have had the displeasure of performing before. Our ladies acquitted them- selves with the expected persistent, perspicious perspiration through three thrilling, throbbing disputes. They rose as close as 15-13 before collapsing into the fractured frustrations as much to the tasteless taunts of the Rowdies of Rideau as to the abiding ablility of their adversary.

The team played a number of games, all of which were very close, and tied once against the high school of commerce. The team participated in one tournament held at Woodroofe, and played an exhibition game against Rideau at the end of the season. The season will be remembered for its numerous injuries (everyone seemed to take a turn at twisting an ankle or pulling a ligament, including Mrs. Butler, who spent much of the season on crutches), and also for its vicious water fights. It was an enjoyable season though, and the team with a large contingent of " minor niners " holds great promise for the future.

This year many people joined the Cross-Country team which enabled us to do extremely well. Everyone performed with great spirit, team work, and personal effort. The Cross-Country team owes a great many thanks to our outgoing coach, Mrs. Butler and to our cheering section. Exceptional results were obtained by Niquette Ruddock and Elise Braithwaite, who placed 19th and 12th respectively in a field of 65 at the Ottawa Valley Cross-Country meet. Sheila Reid Elise Braithwaite OTTAWA CITIZEN INDOOR GAMES In senior competition, the relay team consisting of Elise Braithwaite, Sheila Reid, Sarah Molson, Leilani Farha, Kathy Suh, and Paula Gilbert won their first neat and qualified for the quarter- finals where they were unfortunately eliminated. Their time was exceedingly good, and all were pleased with their performances. Niquette Ruddock and Susan Westley both competed in the 800 metres, running in personal best times. Mrs. Butler 104 OTTAWA HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD MEET The track team performed better than ever before on this occasion, with fine performances from everyone, and with six team members placing in the top seven in their events. These athletes and their respective placings were as follows: Elizabeth Ashworth Elise Braithwaite Christine Campbell Elizabeth McClenahan Sheila Reid Niquette Ruddock 6th (shot-put) 1st (400 m) 2nd (200 m) 7th (1500 m) 5th (discus) 7th (400 m) 5th (400 m) The story of 1982 was that of Elise Braithwaite. On May 29th, Elise competed in the Midget Girls 400 metre race against the best from Eastern Ontario. There she placed second overall, running in a personal best time of 59.5 seconds. This qualified her to compete in the provincial track and field meet the following Friday at Etobicoke Centennial Stadium in Toronto, where she placed sixth. Congratulations Elise! GYMNASTICS Back: Mrs. Butler, Janet Onyango. Middle: Mary Simpson, Fiona Gale. Front: Christine Onyan- go. The gymnastics team had a very good season, in fact their most successful in recent history. Each Wednesday morning, its members came into school at 7:45 to practice in the gym. Hard work and early starts paid off though when it came time for the Ottawa high school gymnastics meet at Fisher Park high school. There two of the team members, Mary Simpson and Christine Onyango placed fourth and sixth respectively in their divisions in the floor exercises. Good performances, though were rendered by the whole team, congratu- lations! TENNIS TEAM Back Row; (Left to Right): Caroline Martin, Debbie Gibson, Christina Campbell. Middle: Paula Gilbert, Niquette Ruddock. Front: Tatjana Wodrich, Jennifer Cheney, Jessica Rudy, KathySuh, Fiona Murray. This year Elmwood ' s racket wielding tennis team valiantly charged headlong into battle. However, despite the face that we failed to qualify for the city finals, our victories were memorable. The team ' s sense of humour and sportsmanship helped make the season a time enjoyed by all. Special thanks to Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Knap for their support and organization. We ' ll get them next year. Sara Peat D6 SPORTS DAY Sport ' s day was a great success, despite inclement weather, and the house totals reflect the keen par- ticipation of all. In third place - Fry with 184 points. In second place - Keller with 190 points. In first place - Nightingale with 218 points. The top junior athlete was Jennifer Hopkyns (7B) who accumulated a total of 6 first and 1 second, chalking up 20 points. The top senior athlete was Niquette Ruddock (lOT) who also chalked up 21 points for her fine performance. Congratulations Everyone! ! ! Mrs. Butler 107 The inclement weather certainly failed to dampen the enthusiasm of the students who continued to participate or cheer on their friends. The days activities were not however restricted to the athletic field; a number of entrepreneurs of all ages took advantage of the day to raise those few extra dollars for Sui Sang or Samara. Their ef- forts resulted in an extravaganza of culinary delights in- cluding baked goods, popcorn, popsicles, and soft drinks. INTERLUDE Destined for Broadway. 109 PLUS CA CHANGE, PLUS CA Change is inevitable; for this we may thank our stars. Without change we have no right to call ourselves civilized, for civilization is based on change, as is progress. " Change is a measurable difference observed in society and culture over a period of time " echoes my old history book, sitting on the shelf above me. Without change, stagnation sets in, and we lose our objective faculty. In short, change is the breath of sweet air to sweep away the cobwebs. Yet there is a proverb about too much of a good thing, and Elmwood watches her own progress with a wary eye, remembering to cherish customs and traditions and only expand and broaden here horizons, rather than ignore the valued past for the sake of the present. The most significant change at Elmwood is the departure of Mrs. Whitwill. As headmistress and a teacher, she has seen many changes in her years here. How Mrs. Whitwill must remember countless faces and laughter as she walks the " hallowed halls of our fair school. " This is a hard change for the school, we will miss her dearly and hope she will visit us often. This year the old girls had rather a surprise when they walked into the garden; two extensions of the school met their " wond ' ring eyes, " the portables for grades three and four. Next year another will be added to accomodate our swelling numbers, as we grow closer to the three hundred mark. A new house has been baptized in honour of this new growth; (Carine) Wilson House will join Fry, Keller and Nightingale next year. Also, Elmwood will be offering grade two to the world come September, and for the first time, rooms one and two (favourite haunts of Cathy the ghost) will be used in order that junior scientists may now have their own lab. no i Elmwood ' s horizons are indeed broadening. This year we allowed the Space Age to invade a room on the third floor in the form of three " Pet " computers. Next year, computer science will be offered as well as the many other courses which used to be taken care of by Ashbury. So, all senior girls will be thankful to know that trudging to Ashbury in Arctic winds and arriving ten minutes late for class will no longer be a part of their daily lives. Of course nobody will miss the boys! 1 1 This year Mr. MacCabe, the articulate history teacher with a flair for sports was a welcome second male addition to the staff room; as well as Mrs. Cry, the music and piano teacher who entered some of her prodigies in the music festival this past spring. Next year, the staff room will be positively expanded into the corridor with Mrs. MacGregor (Math and Science) and Mrs. Johnston (History, Economics and E.S.L.), and a new gym teacher. Changes will also ap- pear in the office, and two new faces will appear. In the Drama department, a new lighting and sound system (courtesy of the Mother ' s Guild) was installed, which was a great aid to the Elmwood Theater Company, who will, by the way, be hosting next year ' s Independent School Drama Festival. Our gym, while not getting bigger, is certainly becoming better equipped. The Mother ' s Guild and other monetary fountains provided us with new mats and soccer nets in ad- dition to innumerable other gymnastic paraphernalia. The Mother ' s Guild has also bought a new piano for the school and donated a thousand dollars to both libraries (bookworms, look out!). Our ceremonies also saw some changes. The Formal, which was once again a joint Elmwood-Ashbury production took place at the Country Club and was a fabulous success. The Closing Ceremonies were held in the impressive auditorium of De la Salle School and went very gracefully. We may now look back with affection on 1981-1982 as a busy school year. The miniature world of Elmwood has seen the passage of many years and many changes, but con- servative thinkers, rest assured. The furniture and numbers of Elmwood may change, but her heart will remain the same. Philippa Sheppard CLOSING REPORT OF THE HEADMISTRESS JUNE 1982 Madam Chairman, Mr. Vice-Chairman, parents, school and friends. This is the last time I shall talk to you at " Closing. " It is the last of many " lasts " for me and they do not get any easier. Yesterday the Junior School and 1 had a marvelous party and I was telling them, as well as I could that I was not the only one to care deeply for them, that they would continue to be watched over with affection by all of our staff, in particular by Mrs. Chance and their form teachers and by Mrs. White and Mrs. Gundy. This is not an end; it is a beginning. This is Elmwood ' s day, and Mrs. White ' s day, the day of my successor. How lucky we are, she and I, that we have been able to work together these last months. That has eased the transition for both of us. It has been a busy time; rendered somewhat traumatic by the sudden disappearance from the sense of our strong right arm, our Vice-Principal, Mrs. Gundy. She returns to us in record time from her hospital bed, - but Oh - How she was missed. To mix metaphors we felt sometimes we were flying on one wing. Today, please, make yourself known to Mrs. White, if there are some of you who do not already know her. And today, this most auspicious day, we welcome back Mrs. Aldous, well-known and dear to so many of you. She is here with us on the platform as so many times in the past she was here to help to hand out the prizes to the students she cared for so deeply. Her genius and her sayings still linger in school and staff room. What I know about art history I learnt as I listened to Mrs. Aldous teaching at the hall table and occasionally one staff member will say to another " Do you remember what Barbara used to say about that? " and we remind ourselves of one of the most celebrated - " Sports Day will be on Friday the 9th, but if it rains on the 9th, we will have Sports Day on the 8th. " For me she was the constant and loyal mentor and I have been blessed in that Mrs. Gundy has successfully taken over that job, ably seconded by Mrs. White, the teaching staff, and the people in the office. Elmwood is at the threshold of a year that will.be like no other - a record enrolment, and extension to grade two, a new portable, the beginning of a new building program. Next year there will be four houses instead of the traditional three. The new house will be CAIRINE WILSON House after one of the best friends Elmwood ever had. Mrs. Wilson is celebrated as the first Canadian Woman Senator, but she was much more than that - she was much more than a woman pioneering in a man ' s world. She was also one who cared, above all for the homeless and threatened children of a war torn Europe. From the moment Hitler marched into Sudetenland in September 1938, through the years when bombs rained down on Europe and helpless families in Poland, Norway, France, and Belgium and Holland were driven from their homes, she worked to make these people, especially children, welcome in Canada. She tackled one of the greatest problems of those times, that of Displaced Persons. Thoughout all this hard work she remained a gracious hostess, a woman whom her male contemporaries respected and acknowledged as equal. She found time to care for the school, Elmwood, which six of her children attended. We could not find a person, man or woman more fitted to exemplify our school motto ' Summa Summarum ' . On her office wall was a framed poem with words that sound somewhat familiar, which might be adopted as a house motto. " To spend ourselves and never count the cost for others ' greater need. " It is a deep satisfaction to me that the school is in such flourishing shape. Many decisions remain to be taken, new programmes to be put into place, but we, they, all go forward in confidence. There will be courses in philosophy and economics, in typing, business maths, computers, E.S.L. and senior music, all to be taught at Elmwood. We welcome today new member of the staff. Mrs. Faith Johnston for History and economics. Mrs. McGregor for maths. Mrs. Brenda Nealefor physical education. This year has seen trips to Quebec city, to Foley Mountain, to Montreal - great experiences. We would do more of these if time allowed but " Time ' s winged chariot is always hovering near. " The senior Drama Club won the top award - Best Play - in the Independent School Drama Festival, this year held at Trinity College School, Port Hope. Our choir sang by invitation at Mackay Street United Church and at Ashbury College. Our athletes did very well, an active year culminating in advance to provincial competition in the 400 metres from Elise Braith- waite, who came eighth in Ontario. This was just the highlight. Seven of our girls competed for Ottawa titles and there were Elm- wood teams competing in high school and junior school volleyball, soccer and basketball, tennis tournaments and gymnastic competition. Just as important were the house games and the " personal bests " achieved during the year. We entered academic competition too, the Humane Society Essay for Junior School, the Gauss mathematics tests, and the Euclid and Descartes competitions run by Waterloo University, also the Ottawa Carleton Annual French Competition, meeting with good success in all of these. Last summer we received the results of the International Baccalaureate examinations written in May, two sevens, five sixes, fourteen fives, eight fours and one three. We held entrance examinations in April for about eighty students and for another few late applicants in May. SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS Internal grade 7 entrance - Internal grade 9 entrance - External grade 9 entrance - Internal grade 11 entrance - Tara Morrison Milena Sigmund Jane Basinski Elizabeth Preston While Mrs. Hewitt is here I would like to thank the Guild for their hard work for the Garage Sale and throughout the year activities which brought in a handsome sum and, as a result, many valuable gifts to the school. We say good-bye with good wishes indeed to Mrs. Elizabeth Davis Mrs. Pat Butler Mrs. Lorraine Carson in the office Mrs. Davis picked up our senior English programme at the critical time and has been consistently helpful, giving services beyond what is expected of a part-time teacher. Mrs. Butler has been an inspiration to us all, joining with her students in every endeavour, a respected counsellor and guide to all our girls. Mrs. Carson has patiently put up with our mistakes, our changes of direction, constant interruption and the vagrancies of the office machines. The devoted cadre of teachers who will be staying at Elmwood know they have my respect and thanks. They have given so much and each has added something to the spirit that makes Elmwood unique. My grateful thanks to the Mother ' s Guild, Mrs. Hewitt, and the Parents Association, Mr. Brodie, for their help and for the lovely retirement party of the 13th which expressed to me so much of what Elmwood is all about. Thank You! To the Board of Governors - thank you once more for your support which has meant hard work and many, many meetings. I leave with some sorrow, but with love and joy, knowing that you, Elmwood students, are in good and loving hands. ' To my history students - carry on, remember our pride in Canada and our hope for internationalism. To the prefect body, bless you for your help and companionship, and particularly thanks to Elizabeth, our Head Girl, from whom you are about to hear. May fair weather and fine sailing be the lot of all here. VALEDICTORY ADDRESS There is an old saying that education is simply wise preparation for the future, and what better place to prepare than Elmwood. As this year comes to a close, we the graduating class find ourselves looking back with fond memories at the successes and with remorse at the failures. Regardless of the misfor- tunes that we have encountered along the way, we have forged onward and now find ourselves ready and willing to begin the next phase of our life. It has been a slow process but the rewards have been well worth the time and effort spent. The graduating class has had a busy year, with Spirit Week, ahd Sports ' Day to name a few, students council also shared some of that activity with our numerous money making adventures. The hard work always seemed worth- while when someone told us that an event that we had organized was a great success and that they really enjoyed it. It is these small but meaningful remarks that are worth a thousand prizes. Elmwood is a relatively small school and is therefore capable of showing these qualities, and I sincerely hope that as Elmwood continues to grow that this gift of a family like atmosphere will never die. The students of Elmwood hold an important part of this life and it is necessary that you know that it is your enthusiasm that generates enthusiasm in others. Don ' t lose this quality, it is hard to build, and ail too easy to lose. Mrs. Whitwill was and will continue to be an integral part of this family life at Elmwood. There were times when we needed help and encouragement and she was always available to pass on a " good luck " or a " well done. " I consider it an honour to have met her and Elmwood should feel it an honour that she shared so many of her years with us. On behalf of the graduating class, I would like to extend our appreciation to Mrs. Whitwill for her never ending support thoughout the year. But there is consolation in knowing that the position of headmistress has been very capably filled by Mrs. White, and we wish her all the successes that accompany her in her new position. Another beginning at Elmwood next year, we shall see the reappearance of a grade two class. The doors will once again open for Ottawa ' s younger youth. It is these students that will benefit in the years to come from Elmwood ' s at- mosphere. Changes occur anywhere where progress is present, and Elmwood is no exception, whatever your feelings on the changes that occur do not lose sight of the traditions that will be tested in those periods of change. It is fun- damental that this years ' graduating class and those of the future have those traditions and the school ' s reputation to lean on in the future. Elmwood has a lot to offer and each student can benefit in varying ways, the experiences and knowledge that I have gained are too numerous to mention. And so to Lisa, our new head girl, the prefects and the grade thirteen class, the best of luck and remember those successes will come when you all work together as a whole. In closing, to my class, my friends, I would like to express my deep ap- preciation for the support that I have received from you during the year. I always knew that I could find encouragement in some form or another from somewhere in the depths of the common room. To the teachers, the administration and the remaining staff thank you very much for being patient with me when I had long ago lost mine. There are precious few gifts in life and Elmwood seems to have been doubly blessed. Thank you all very much for four magnificent years. 115 PRIZE LIST PROFICIENCY STANDING: 80% and over, up to and including grade 10. 75% and over, grades 11 to 13.

Although we had hoped to fill the yearbook with ads only (no pictures, just ads) our dream was not realized. The success we did have was due to the ever present help of Mrs. Sigmund, Lisa (our editor) and Mrs. Gundy (for tracking down those illegible signatures). Thank you ladies for your support.
