We shared the death of a dear friend, colleague and teacher, Eliza Davis. The news of Mrs. Chance ' s retirennent brought about a good deal of sadness fronn the students, parents and teachers who have been fortunate enough to have been exposed to her unique blend of kindness, humour, good sense and absolute integrity! Her wisdom has helped so many be proud of Elmwood and themselves. We have also watched together as the new gym and classrooms have taken shape behind the school. Thanks to the continuing commitment and hard work of countless people we now have the facilities that our sports program richly deserves. Beyond these changes, the school has con- tinued to offer trips, exchange programs, sports and academic competitions, clubs and social ser- vice activities that have enriched your lives and have given you a place to develop your strengths and skills. I hope you remember this year with affection, and with pride. MRS. CHANCE ' S GOODBYE PARTY The Samara Committee has made its annual request for a few words of greeting, but it is hard to find even a few quiet moments to write. For these are very special times at Elmwood. Running a school around a construction site takes much more energy. You may think the image this statement brings to mind is fun- ny, but it seems accurate enough to me! Today the cement was being poured for the new gym floor. Even I find it hard, imagine that this feat could be accomplished by equipment inside the construction fences. For the first time IB exams are being written " off campus " as the school does not have the necessary space. That is why I suddenly find myself in a quiet hall; about a kilometre from Elmwood, supervising the last twenty-five minutes of the History exams. The scripts being written this afternoon are to be mailed to Nova Scotia and England for marking. We will be mailing scripts to three other provinces (British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec) and eight other countries (Austria, India, Jordan, Luxembourg, Scotland, Singapore, England and Switzerland). With scripts being marked in India, Jordan and Singapore, I have decided that Biology is the most inter- national subject in 1988. The exam is over and the few quiet moments have passed. It is time to drive back to Elmwood, the long awaited construc- tion; the activities associated with the closing of the 1987-88 academic year and the plans for the 1988-89 year. Morag Gundy. Vice Principal How do I say goodbye to all the people and the Institution that have been so much a part of me for sixteen years? - Only by realizing that you and Elmwood will continue to be part of me always. I have been greatly blessed In my association with this school: in the fine foundation It has given to our daughters, Jennifer and Judith; In the close friendships I have founded with other staff members; and In the many young people I have been privileged to know and love. I feel I leave a strong school, offering moral leadership and academic excellence. Our new facilities offer exciting new possibilities, but our greatest assets are always our teachers and our students, and their Interaction. My love, my thanks and my blessings to you all, my Elmwood family. Nancy Chance. Head of Junior School Samantha Black born June 27 70; at Elmwood: grade 9 13 Sammy was dropped off on this planet June 27, 1970 and has honoured Elmwood with her presence in grade 9 and again in grade 13. Every morning Miss Black can be seen walking to school to meet the 8;25 bell. Always clowning around, Sam is an all around party animal who never stops talking. Even so, she still managed to get to class first. James Dean is her 1 man! She can often be heard saying " I don ' t know! " . . . but she really does! Our Scottish friend will never forget Ski Day and her experience with cross country skiis. Next time she plans to be totally waterproof. In final note most of us will be thankful to Sam because of her homework which was shared by all. P.S.: Don ' t be so DAFT! and best of luck always, we love ya, I., H. Ellen Bruce born Sept. 23 69; at Elmwood: grade 6 to 13 I am Ookapik - Hear me roar. Hey baby, know what I drive? Have some spaghetti, just a little. Life is a cabaret. Too bad you ' re not a guitar.

Kerstin Bruchhaeuser born Jan. 15 69; at Elmwood: grades 10 to 13 She came to us after Ctiristmas in grade ten and now in grade ttiirteen, she is the Head of Wilson. She brings spirit into her House because she has that enthusiasm and spunl to encourage others. Well, Kerst, remember the good times and forget the bad no matter what. Mal e sure you remember us, especially out in Germany. What would life have been without all your beans (T.J. M.S. M.JP. T,P.)? What about Pap Joe ' s and the Big Card out in lulontreal with Ha! Ha!

Katie Chao born April 17 69; at Elmwood: grades 11 to 13 Katie has been at Elmwood for three years. Now head of ' Fruitful Fry ' she is second best to none, and also a not yet discovered NBA player. Having been to New York only twice, it is surprising that most of her friends live there, as well as in Michigan and Ohio, and are regularly flown in as grad dates and admirers. Remember our Montreal parties? I don ' t think I ' ll ever be able to hear " Truly " again without laughing. Lasers! Bruce call dauce first as well as CC.

YTD 9 Chase Harris born May 14 70; at Elmwood: grades 7 to 13 Chastity Harris, have I ever told you )ust how fat and ugly you are and that you have no friends ' Chase is one of the few representatives of super jockdom in grade 13, During her seven bnef years at Elmwood she has excelled on almost every team in existence: soccer, Softball, basketball, track, tennis and especially volleyball, I can ' t believe that you ' re just missing that anxiously awaited gym. During her final year as a ditzy blonde Senior Prefect, Chasey has shown much spirit and certainly, self control when asked such questions as " can we still bring in pennies ' " and " when are the rugby shirts coming in? " Sincere curses for all the IVlcDuck ' s, DQ and donut runs. At least at our exercise routine balanced it all out (oh hoh hoh hoh!) I don ' t know how I ' ll survive science labs without you. Never forget our classic moves - red solution all over your white sweater, test tubes rebounding from the floor, precision techniques and legitimate results.

You haven ' t been at Elmwood long but I don ' t think you ' ll be forgotten in a hurry. I ' m sure you won ' t forget being up at 5:15 am to go rowing. We ' ll prob- ably see you next in the Winter Olympics skating towards gold, or maybe some other colour. I haven ' t known you long but you ' ve been a good friend and I wish you luck in the future. Oh, and by the way I ' m Scottish not Irish, don ' t forget. Love Sam. Carol Hodgson born Feb. 8 70; at Elmwood: grades 8 to 13 Just a dancing fool. No, no, you don ' t understand. Guess where I ' m going today? If one more per- son mentions university I ' m going to explode. Brain the size of aggy. Breakfast of idiots. Ookpik. What year is it? It ' s 1957, small town America. Watch it, or you ' ll gain access to the Tiffany room, Ack. Icky, Icky, Icky, Icky Rtang. Tattoo you. Little ol ' ladies from Passedena, they ' ll never be the same. Don ' t be on Elgin late at night. Insanity rules. Why bother saying it when you can imply it. Hey Winston Paul Lennon I. Wow it ' s been a long time, thank you Gill Lorimer.

Too many years in Stratford, baby. If peach fuzz doesn ' t bring the pic- tures we might not go in for a whole day. Let ' s kill the blonde kid. Meet me there in September and February and WEAR THE HAT (and the Grad dress). Don ' t forget Soup and Spaghetti and Dynasty - I ' ll have a front door key made for you. You ' re always welcome. Love Munch. David Thomas I presume.

Volvo maniac. Who ' s Lonie? Vienna: year 2000. W flies with K V B. See you in Paris CLE and remember: Rage, rage against the dying of the light! Nicole Knowlton born Sept. 27 69; at Elmwood: grades 11 to 13 Well denang me Nicole if we haven ' t made it through the year to graduation ' Secadm ' joined the ' Elmwood Com- munity ' in gr. 11. During her 3 years, Nicole has contributed to many activities including rowing, the ski team, choir and band (Play that funky music, hopalong) and could always be counted on to enthusiastically support school social events. As our head girl, Nikki has continuously impressed us throughout the long year with her hardwork, organization and dedication to Elmwood and Students. She even managed to keep her sense of humour through it all. Who else could roll 150 000 pennies on a Saturday and still be smiling at the end. Knickers has become known for her zinger comments that never cease to amaze us - " Jiggle your eyes, your head is stuck " and statements in crowded movie theatres " Oh ... I like him. " Always remember fondly math classes for after all " we do have other courses you know. " I get to keep our math brain and may you never have to erase another blackboard in your life. Keep in your Elmwood Memory Box - a certain fluorescent Ontario Ski team jacket, bathroom advertising cam- paigns, the Smother ' s Brothers penny rap, Sam, Incredible detention giving skills; Sam, lost brain cells from too many diet creamsodas, sesame snaps and R C ' s, all those graveyard shifts, C.B. boogernuggets. and ' can you give this to your Mother? " Thanks for such a memorable time at Elmwood and for your friendship and support. We wish you the best of luck m the future. You ' ll always be the sexiest Hershey kiss I ' ve ever met and when will you ever learn to cook a hamburger? Love C. Ingrid Kujala born Nov. 16 68; at Elmwood: grades 12 to 13 Ingrid made her way to Elmwood in Grade 1 2. As a rower during that year, she will remember gain- ing experience (as well as a few blisters) in Regattas that lasted for hours. She still hates the thought of rowing on the " clean " waters of the Ottawa River, but it was worth it. She can say that downhill ski- ing Friday night was great although many of us were half asleep on the bus getting back to school even though it wasn ' t ten o ' clock yet. She is thankful that her locker Isn ' t situated in the common room. Do we have to wonder why? She still can ' t figure out how all the girls could ever breathe in there. " Hey You in the green! " " Oh no we have less than five minutes to catch the bus! " Along with those who had and knew Mrs. Davis, Ingrid will always have the fondest memories of her. Someday Ingrid will sail to Australia or at least fly there and windsurf down under. " Nila! Again you parked crooked! " To the Class of ' 88: A journey of a thousand miles begins with the First step! - Best of luck and happiness in the future. Kristen Lawr born Jan. 29 69; at Elmwood: grades 11 to 13 Well ugly, it ' s been quite the 3 years, starting with the memorable grade 1 1 TV glow Gordie.

" Barrymore Christine McGregor born May 27 69; at Elmwood: grades 11 to 13 Well Pristine, you made it through three years in the hallowed halls of Elmwood. You came to us as ' Mrs. McGregor ' s daughter ' and leave us as a SUPERPSYCHOTIC WOMAN ON THE RAMPAGE. What happened? How about those hieroglyphic F C sections that we " didn ' t quite grasp " , the little twerps screaming for their pizza (have the bite marks on your arm disappeared yet?) and super-accurate labs. I think the real root of the problem was the summer of ' 87. Without you, Chris, we would have lost so many good times: semi-formal, ship ' s company Dinner Dance, penny counting, waterbomb ducking (at highly inconvenient times, I must add . . .), McDuck ' s runs and treats of the week, DQs, " I bought it, he ' s mine " , big feet, freckles in the dark, me-ne-me-ne, electric jello, ballerina, etc. You name it, she ' s done it . , . Pristine, you amaze us all with your total all-roundness and perfection: athletic, intelligent, beautifully blonde, and with one heck of a boyfriend. We ' ll miss you. Our only comfort will be in knowing that you will be successful, happy and perfect wherever you go. Party hearty (remember the weekend starts Tuesday and that Wednesday to Fridays are just bad mornings!) We love you! C, N F Michelle McLaughlin born Jan. 14 69; at Elmwood: grades 9 to 10 then 13 Having been at Elmwood for grades 9 10, Michele left for New York, then Denmark, returning to Elmwood for grade 13. She is now known for her addiction to Tuborg, which was actually to be found at On Tap!!! Michele has come a long way since answering the phone in St. Donat. During her athletic career at Elmwood she has contributed to the Basketball, Volleyball and Soccer teams and sprained her ankle how many times? (Oh no, I ' m so embarrassed). Michele loves to eat, especially junk food and lunch with Stefig. Remember our " collection " ? " Riding on a chuckwagon . . . Ted, oh Ted, you are so . . .

And remember how we discovered the Bistro. Houg with Pink Lakes and " apples anyone? " But it ' s only 7a.m.! Although Kirstin is a good cook, her apple pancakes don ' t always turn out even if there ' s a volleyball game scheduled at tVlooney ' s Bay.

Carter - Administrative Assistant Dr. Elizabeth Davis, a member of the English staff at Elmwood, died last December. She was on- ly forty-two. There are two hard facts which are still difficult to accept, especially for those of us that worked closely with her. On January 28th we gave our memorial at the school in her honour. It is significant that we relied on words from great writers and poets whom she had loved and taught rather than attempt to ex- press our personal feelings, believing that literature alone can give expression to the mute pains and joys of life. Ironically no one knew this better than Eliza. When we asked students whom she had taught which passages they remembered from books studied with her, the memories were testaments in themselves to her extreme sensitivity and high in- telligence. That these choices were not obvious ones for young people is a reflection of how much of Eliza ' s perception had been relayed to her students. In the passages from Greaf Expectations we are made to suffer with Pip in his new-found con- sciousness of how inferior he is to the haughty Estella; the words of the Song of Solomon express more than anything ever written the joy, goodness and beauty of love; Kubia Khan stands for all vi- sionary experience; the passage from the first chapter of The Great Gatsby when the billowing white curtains and dresses are stilled by the slam- ming of the door symbolizes the unending fight be- tween good and evil; in Travels with my Aunt Henry, under the tutelage of his incredible aunt, learns to love and live in late middle age and lastly Emily Bronte ' s poetry expresses her experience of the human spirit unconfined by time and space. Eliza, Emily Bronte was right. You are with us to- day in spirit, remembered with appreciation and fondness. We are privileged to have known such a rare person. IJ Who ' s going to the store?!?

There they saw two plays - Othello and Intimate Admiration as well as the musical Cabaret. Shakespeare ' s works, with their insight into human nature and understanding of power, are applicable to anytime and Stratford seems to like to show this by bringing out the shiny boots, medals and uniforms of Second World War officers. Intimate Admiration explored the loving relationship between Tchekov and the woman who became his wife. Most of the Elmwood girls thought it was good, but the play ' s subtle brilliance was really overshadowed by the fantastic musical Cabaret. Cabaret, the last performance for Elmwood was the perfect send-off: Othello might have been too heavy. The minute I mentioned Cabaret there was a unanimous reaction: fantastic, amazing . . . Brent Carver! The pineapple scene! In- novative performance! Super! Mind-shattering! Charismatic! Beautiful! The comments demonstrate the impact Cabaret and Brent Carver had on the Grade 13s, and I ' m sure Brent Carver noticed us also as we stood up and cheered at the end of the performance when he came up on stage. The grade 13 assess- ment of the Stratford trip and the plays we saw in 1987 can be summed up as follows: " Overall it was the best year yet! " INTIMATE ADMIRATION: John Neville, Lucy Peacock CABARET: Sheila McCarthy, Brent Carver 73 ST. DONAT 88 The object of St. Donat, or " The French Ex- perience " was to help us improve our French, while we were doing something we all enjoy: downhill skiing and socializing. As well as improving our French we also learnt a new language: the St. Donat slang. New collo- quialisms such as: " Oki-doo " , " Bye-bye ski " , " Wacky-tabacie " and " Hey-hooo " . The first thing that should be said is that Elmwood impressed everyone there, students and ' moniteurs ' alike. Elmwood had the best spirit of all the schools and tied for first place in the improvisational sketches. What surprised everyone the most was that Elmwood WON the tug-of-war contest against Hillcrest, J.S. Woodsworth, St. Marks and Nepean. All the teams were co-ed except ours! Does that tell you something about our ' strength ' ? Congratulations should go to Molly Tepper who placed second in the beginner ' s racing competition. Everyone from Elmwood made many " special " friends from the other schools, especially from J.S. Woodsworth. Will anyone ever forget " Mr. Ef- feminate " , " Rock-I ' instructeur de ski " , or the hot tub? I can also still hear " New Order " which was always playing when we were in our room. We would like to thank Mme Millington and Mile Eaman for accompanying us, and our parents for allowing us to go. I think everyone had an amazing time and some of us have already reserved spots for next year. QUEBEC CITY This year ' s trip to Quebec City was both educational and recreational. Visits to the Citadel, St. Anne de Beaupre, the Old City of Quebec, le parlennent will be remembered by all who participated. Our evening ' s entertainment ranged from the program organizers rendition of the musical, Charlie to a period costume cabaret. There was even a night of rollerskating! These were just a few of the highlights of a delightful experience and we would all like to thank our guides, Mrs. McRae, Mrs. Wires, Miss Cummings as well as the ever faithful Luc. CAMP CAMERON On January 11th the Grade 6 class left singing for a 3 day outdoor education experience at Camp Cameron. Soon after unloading, settling into our cabins and lunching, we set off in search of beaver dams, animal tracks and other interesting features not found in the city. It was an educational hike which included details on outdoor survival. The girls learned lots about the habits and habitat of the beaver. After supper despite initial reluctance to venture out in the dark, we had a wonderful hike, lit a bon- fire, sang songs and roasted marshmallows. Tuesday 6:00 a.m. - the girls are wide awake. After breakfast they split into two groups, one for orienteering and the other for a snow study. The final day started out raining but it cleared up and we set out with knapsacks on our backs. Despite the successful lesson on firelighting the previous day, the cold wind and wet wood manag- ed to extinguish many fires. We were very grateful for the cheerful help and support given by Mrs. Sumner and Mrs. Thomp- son, the two mothers who accompanied us on this three day adventure. Their chef ' s hats and coffee mugs we hope will always give them fond memories of the Camp Cameron experience. FOLEY MOUNTAIN May 17, 18, and 1 9 are full of fond memories for this year ' s grade sevens. Mile Eaman, Mrs. Hackett and Mrs. Chapman. We spent one day at Foley Mountain Conservation Area orienteering and studying pond life, another in Kingston visiting Fort Henry and the third at Upper Canada Village. Highlights for some will be the gruesome stories at Barry McQauy about leeches or water beetle larvae. For others, the officer ' s inspection at Fort Henry, a first ever dive at the YWCA pool, writing with a quill pen or dressing up in 1820 ' s attire at Upper Canada Village will be lasting memories. Our busy schedule was packed with learning, good times and good friends. We wish the same for next year ' s class. 5 6 TORONTO TRIP At the end of April, many students in grade 5, 6 7, played hostess to 43 grade 6 girls from Havergal College in Toronto. This in turn provided an opportunity for our grade 5 6 to travel to Toronto on May 25-27 for the second year in a row. Mrs. Heacock and Mrs. Schmidt acting as chaperones and tour guides, roamed the 1 8th and 1 9th century homes of ear- ly Torontonians at The Grange, Black Creek Pioneer Village and Casa Loma. We zoomed down the water run at Ontario Place and soared high over the Grand Canyon too! Our Havergal friends treated us to dinner and entertained us all royally. Barring the long wait for the train in Toronto, we had a super, fantastic trip and returned home fatigued but full of stories to tell.

" We arrived in Spain and were im- mediately introduced to our tour director, Juan Andrea, all 5 1 2 feet of him. We were paired with a group from Alaska which in- creased our numbers to 26 girls and 1 guy We spent the first days of our trip in Madrid seeing all the cultural sights in- cluding the Royal Palace and the Prado Art Museum. We began to wonder about the Spanish diet because our guide for Madrid was all of 4 ft 7 inches. Julio ' s favourite word was " Vamos " which we would hear any time we stopped for a breath. Besides the cultural insights we did take in some nightlife, visiting the discos of Madrithhh! After Madrid, we headed south to Seville hoping to be treated to some SUN. We visited the gravesite of Christopher Colum- bus and fed the pigeons. We were impress- ed with the foods of Seville and our tour guide, Pedro, who stood 5 ft 11 inches. We had an evening at a flamenco show which was rather noisy but enjoyable. The last part of the trip was spent at Tor- remollinos and sightseeing and shopping were the order of the day. A planned trip to Tangiers could not be arranged so we set- tled for the beach or went back to the shops. Some interesting notes about the hotels: you either had to choose between hot water or water pressure, you could not get both; Spanish towels are just not big enough to go around " normal " - sized Canadian bodies; Spanish food is " dif- ferent " ; gypsies are neat; the Sangria and beer flows like water . . . We all increased our jewelry collection and had an absolutely wonderful time. Thanks very much to Mrs. Edwards, Mrs. O ' Brien and Mme Sabourin for the genuine care and concern that was shown to each of us throughout the trip. E.

Have you heard the news? " B - " No Robin, what is it? " R - " The Elmwood girls have amazed us all and have had their best year ever in sports! " Hi Sportsfans: As you are well aware, no doubt, the Athletic program throughout the school has produced consistently excellent results in all areas of the athletic curriculum. The Elmwood girls, in anticipation of their new and improved sport facility, went out onto the courts of the Ottawa Board and won a significant number of games and tournaments. We will most likely miss the heckling and name-calling as we enter or leave foreign gyms as we will have an equal number of home games where our fans can CHEER US ON!!! What a thrill that will be, actually having someone to cheer, not jeer, us on. Not only did we succeed in- terscholastically but the intramural sports were very well supported. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone in the school for making House Games and Sports Day a success as well as a bunch of fun for everyone. Special thanks to the House Sports Captains: Sheila Barber, Katie Bell, Paula Tomlin, Dilsheesh Purewall and Tracey Solomon as well as to Mrs. Neale, our mentor. Also, thanks to the Grade 13s for always being helpful and spirited . . . Love, Eileen (that ' s all folks!)

The experienced eight rowed four days a week at 6:15 a.m. while the novice eight trained three days a week at 4:45 p.m. With fitter girls - thanks to winter training and effective recruitment - we had better quality practices. They sought their reward in the highlight of our season, a tight race with Lisgar on the Ottawa River at the Ottawa-Carleton Invitational Rowing School Regatta. We rowed better and more aggressively than the other crews but the steering tactics baffled us and we came second.

The girls practiced up to three times a week, honing their skills by playing singles, doubles and mixed doubles. All of this practise paid off as the Elmwood-Ashbury team made it to the playoffs at Sporteque in October. Elmwood-Ashbury placed fifth overall in the ' B ' division with the mixed doubles team of Julie Coulson and John Mercer (Ashbury) placing first. The members of the " A " team were up against some stiff competition yet they still placed 4th overall. Congratulations to the girls on a great season.

To prepare for the season there were 3 mini-meets with stiff competition from the Big Ottawa Schools. In one meet the girls combin- ed with the Hillcrest Boys Team resulting in many 1st place finishes. Hard work paid off at the City Championships where everyone qualified for the finals. In the consolation finals: Deanna Waterman (1st - jr. girls 50m back), Marika Farrell (1st - jr. girls 100m free), Megan Pound (2nd - jr. girls 100 free), and Andrea Kucey (3rd - jr. girls 50m breast). In the city finals the following results: Marika Farrell (silver medal - jr. girls 50m free), Shawn Belton (silver medal sr. girls 50m breast), and Mary Capello (bronze medal - jr. girls 50m free).

Following a relatively short but intense training period, the team participated in the Glashan Girls ' Invitational Volleyball Tournament on January 22nd and 23rd. The girls lost their two games to Glashan and went on to win their next 6 games, beating Pauline Vanier, Vincent Massey, and York. On the 23rd, the girls beat Gowling in the quarters and Featherstone in the semis. They came up against Glashan in the finals and lost 15-13, 15-13, to be awarded the silver medals (2nd out of 15 teams) In the O.B.E. Tournament on January 25th 27th, the girls placed extremely well and lost the one medal - awarded to Featherstone, 15-13 16-14. Jody O ' Brien, the team ' s coach would like to thank the girls for their great sportsmanship, spirit, and display of competent volleyball skills. They were Elmwood representatives to be proud of.

For the first time the team made the playoffs after an exciting, incredible season! We started off with a loss (we only had 2 losses) after an exciting match against DeLaSalle - 3 games to 2. We also defeated Immaculata 3 games straight, then 3 games to 1 , Notre Dame 3-1 and Champlain 3-1 . When we met DeLaSalle for the second time, after a terrifically exciting, well played match, we emerged victorious 3 games to 2! Most of our games had many exciting rallies, with terrific spiking, digs and returns. All players, fans and Mrs. Neale could hardly contain themselves, or watch the excitement! We met Laurentian in the playoffs and unfortunately bowed 3 games to 1. But, we ' ll get them next year! Overall it was a fun season with great memories of endless practices, lines, powerful serves, sore arms and great satisfaction knowing we had won 5 matches or 20 games. Congratulations to our 12 team members, and especially our captains Lisa Rambert and Habiba Thawer. JR.

With a minimal amount of prepara- tion, all of which was done out of doors, the team was bussed to Sir John A. Macdonald High School for the one day event. Holding nothing back all fifteen girls put out a max- imum effort and came out with a very respectable third place finish. This year, because of too few players, the senior school was unable to enter a team in the Inter-School League. However, with the enthusiasm shown in the junior school this year ... 35 students trying out for the 15 positions . . . the future looks very good for basketball at Elmwood in the years to come. Bring on the new gymnasium ... no more rained out practices at this school. We look forward to even more success in our team events now that HOME GAMES will become a reality SENIOR VOLLEYBALL (Front Row - Left to Right) Vivian Yu, Eileen MacPhee, Chase Harris, Chris- tine McGregor (Back Row - Left to Right) Alyson Johnston, Shawn Belton, Kerstin Bruchhaeuser, Mr. McCabe, Michele McLaughlin, Belinda Guy, Sue Camer- on, Tracey Soolomon. The Senior School Senior Volleyball team (the Over 16s) met with mixed results this season. There were moments of deserved success along with the inevitable setbacks. The team itself was made up of 5 returning veterans (Kerstin, Chase, Chris, Eileen and Vivian), 3 Junior team graduates (Sue, Belinda and Tracey), and 3 new recruits (Shawn, Alyson and Michele). The varying skills and personalities developed into a very effective group that supported each other both on and off the court. Our results this year continued to show improve- ment which is a credit to the Junior School team guided by Mrs. O ' Brien, the Senior School Junior team (the Under 16s) developed by Mrs. Neale as well as the continuing dedication of the girls themselves. There were FIVE regular season vic- tories against only three losses. In exhibition play within our league we had ONE victory and one loss. The Bishop Strachen Tournament saw us record THREE victories and two losses. The playoffs were a disappointment as a season-ending Friday Night Ski- ing injury coupled with a Choir Trip that absorbed two players and the flu bug which sent one player to bed and forced another three to play with reduced skills allowed an opponent we had defeated during the season to slip by us into the semi-finals, maybe next year . . . It was an enjoyable year from my vantage point, watching, ( f rfnfr ) and coaxing from the sidelines, as I saw great team play, individual improvement, a supportive atmosphere within the team and, of course, an increasing number of victories. My thanks to everyone involved with the team including our legion of fans and a fond farewell to our graduating players who have developed this winning spirit . . . thanks. 85 DOWNHILL SKIING (Left to Right) Andrea Kucey, Catriona Hardie, Stephanie McKnight, Fiona Doetsch, Meredith Nelson, Mary Capello, Julie Coulson, Nicole Knowlton, Karena Bellaar-Spruyt, Lisa Baylin. Absent: Suzy Shillington. (Below) Mrs. Knowlton - coach, Christie Callan-Jones - invalid The 1988 Ski season was as unpredictable as the weather. It all began with such promise on a gloriously sunny January day when our twelve member team was chosen from amongst the survivors of the frozen, jagged moguls. We then began preparing for the Big Boards . . . The competitive team (Julie Coulson, Suzie Shillington, Lisa Baylin, Catriona Hardie, Nicole Knowlton) placed well in the Anne Heggtveit Invita- tional, a fifth overall ... in the 1st run but the gremlins took over in the 2nd run. However we still managed to place in the upper V2 of the field just miss- ing the Valley Invitational by one spot! The recreational team was primed for their best effort ever but the gremlins showed up in the guise of a major snowstorm causing a re- scheduling to March 4th .. . after the start of our March Break. Oh well maybe next year the weather gods will be kinder to us . . . SKI DAY Ski Day - February 12, 1988 To be or not to be - that is the question. Whether ' tis nobler in the school to suffer the snow and sleet of outraged Nature or to take to skis amidst a sea of snowflakes - and by schussing, conquer? The decision was taken - we stayed at home. Yet Ski Day did not die - only slept. Near the end of term, all Elmwoodians set out for the hills of Camp Fortune. And a glorious day it was! Warm, soft flakes cushioning falls and cries of delight; muscles strain- ing in the unaccustomed powder. A race and obstacle course provided an added challenge, then a Bar-B-Q at Lockeberg replenished spent energy. Everyone had a wonderful, energetic, healthful day commun- ing with Mother Nature who will un- doubtedly smile even more kindly on us next year! CROSS COUNTRY RUNNING Congratulations to our three connpetitors this year. Michelle Morrison and Julia Norman com- peted in both the Ottawa Cross Country Meet (and placed 19th and 3rd respectively), and in the Na- tional Capital Meet (where Julia again placed 3rd). Julia then travelled to OFSSA - the Ontario Cham- pionship in Toronto on November 7th where she competed representing Elmwood and the Ottawa Valley. In this meet Julia placed 17th out of over 200 runners. Congratulations Julia! (Left to Right) Debbie Soroczan, Julia Norman, Michelle Morrison CROSS COUNTRY SKIING Elmwood ' s first ever Cross Ctountry Ski Team got off to a terrific start this year. November saw the girls training indoors and out waiting patiently for snow. Mrs. Chapman ' s rowers joined us on a recreational basis to keep their fitness level up. Once the snow did fall, the girls could be seen blazing trails behind the school and doing circuits down at the Lookout. The competitive skiers took part in two meets. The first was the Independent Schools Cross Country Meet at Sedburgh School near Montebello, Quebec. Julia Norman placed first in the Senior Girl ' s 5 Km. Gwyneth Norman placed first in the Junior Girl ' s 2.8 Km. while Catherine Richardson was pleas- ed with her results in the Junior Race as it was her very first competitive result. Then the three girls raced in the Senior Girls Relay and placed first. At the National Capital Cross Country Ski Championships held at Camp Fortune, Julia placed 2nd while Paula Tomlin placed well in her debut race over the same 5 Km. course for Senior Girls. Gwyneth placed 6th while Catherine continued to improve recording a personal best in the Junior Girls ' 2.5 Km. Congratulations on a super season! S. Cummings.

Practices started in April for the May 14th Raggedy Ann Tournament at Havergal. Saturday, May 14 was a beautiful day in Toronto and the team was ready to play Softball and hopefully get a tan as a bonus. We played 7 games against opposition from all the major private schools. Although we got off to a slow start we did end up with a respectable 4-3 record good enough for 4th place in the 8 team competition. Saturday evening the team visited the Scarborough Bluffs before heading downtown for dinner at Mr. Greenjeans. The highlight of the trip was the recording of the team song, Great Balls of Fire, in a mini-studio in the Eaton Centre. The girls represented Elmwood very well. Congratulations to all members of the team for their effort and enthusiasm. » -, SR.

We met some tough competition and were able to provide excellent competition. Against our sister school, Ashbury, we played two superb matches which ended in satisfac- tory 3-3 and 1-1 draws. Our defence was solid, our halfbacks were fast, and our forwards simply scintillating. The team was aggressive, solid and determined all of which was combined with enthusiastic, good sportsman- ship. Thanks to everyone for a terrific season. With most of the team returning next year (plus the fact that we can start practices in the new gym before the snow melts), we should be a real threat to all the other teams and will hopefully have our best season ever!! A special thanks to Mr. Hanbury and Mr. Hayes for be- ing our most faithful fans, your support and encourage- ment were very special and meant a great deal to us all. ' WOOD 1 Tf Junior School Soccer Despite the lack of a regulation size gym and the small enrolment compared to Public Schools, Elmwood girls con- tinue to excel in athletics. On October 27, the girls beat out many other schools to win the OBE In- termediate School Tournament. The girls displayed a commendable com- bination of skill and sportsmanship and were rewarded after a long day with the Championship and the accompanying medals. Special thanks to Rockcliffe Public for the use of their field, and to Paula Gilbert ( ' 84) for her help and encouragement. Jody O ' Brien, Coach, would also like to thank the second team who came out to all the practices and played an impor- tant part in getting the first team ready. JR.

What an amazing year! Fry House of 1988 has succeeded in projecting a new image. Not only has the spirit at House Games been enthusiastic but the support for our project, Save the Children ' s Fund, has been definitely overwhelming. Between the Eggroll sale and Fruitful Fry, we have been able to support a whole community in Jamaica. Thanks to all you Fries and especially Nila Varan, Tracey Solomon, Anne Gildenhuys, and the grade eights, we have truly had a great year. Loads of luck next year! As always, FRY RULES FOREVER!

We did extremely well with our fundraising (although I think it will be a long time before I can look squarely at another McDonald ' s hamburger!) and we were once again able to donate a puppy to the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. I know that everyone hopes that this puppy, Thomson, will match the successes of Keller, who is now an official guide dog in Winnipeg, and of Sullivan, who is still working hard in his puppy-walking home. We had a great finish to the year Keller! Our efforts were well rewarded by " Dog Day Afternoon " (held jointly by Keller and Wilson) which proved to be a most successful and enjoyable event. Many thanks to all those faithful Kellerites who always came to House games and to those who helped out at all our fundraisers, but especially to Holly, Inka, Dilsheesh and Stephanie for all your support! Best of luck to next year ' s house head.

We set records for Senior House Games atten- dance (Fry, eat your heart out, we did have 36 people there that time). We raised, at least, $400 for the Youth Clinic at the Children ' s Hospital, thanks to all you Easter Creme Egg and Donut addicts. After so many years of being cheerless, we even came up with a House Cheer. Remember?! . . . Nightingale is the Best We are better than all the rest We ' ve got spirit We have fun Nightingale is Number One. " Thank you all for your support and enthusiasm - You are the Best!!

On Sports Days and other activities the top teams for spirit were Wilson teams and we truly excelled in all House Games. This year our project was to raise money for the Humane society of Ottawa-Carleton, which seems to be overflowing with dogs and kittens but really needs funding to provide food and shelter for all the animals. Tagging the thousand and six hundred candy canes (1600!) at Christmas certainly was a major amount of work but we raised a couple of hundred dollars for the Humane society, so it was worth it. Thanks to Katie and Sheila for being such great Sports Captains; to Alyson, Habiba, Kim, Nimrose and everyone else who supported Wilson this year, good luck to everyone. Love, Kerstin. 97 STUDENTS ' COUNCIL Thursday morning, twenty times at 0830 hr., what does the 0 stand for ? Oh my Gosh it ' s early!! Action items: malfunctioning water fountains, smel- ly locker rooms, boxer shorts, summer uniform, golf t-shirts, ice machines ... to name only a few. A big thank you to all those who helped out with refreshments at various functions throughout the year. Special thanks to the Queen for donating her face to every coin we collected during the Second Annual Penny Campaign. That makes 146,250 times ($1462.50). Thanks for some scintillating comments, suggestions and questions, Tom, Dick and Bubbles (Nick, Chasey and Fifi) MONFORT HOSPITAL (EVES) No medals, no applause, just the feeling of hav- ing done a good deed. All the students who willing- ly give their time, one afternoon a month, do so in answer to Soeur Jeannette ' s call for needed volunteers to help with varied tasks at the hospital. I do congratulate the EVES who have worked very diligently and regularly this year, especially those who have given up some of their free days during the holidays. I also take this opportunity to inform you that Soeur Jeannette has left the Montfort Hospital. She is a good example of humility and dedication that the girls will remember throughout their own careers. D. Seguin.

In the spring a concert was given at McKay St. United Church for the members of the High Horizons han- dicapped group. For Closing the choir sang four Canadian folk Songs arranged by Howard Cable.

Gwyneth Norman, Natasha Corrin, Camille Beaufort, Patricia Harewood (and Mrs. Kry) provided the bacl ground music for the Art Fair ' s opening night, playing music of the Renaissance as well as arrangements of Mozart, and folk tunes. The group was expanded to include Junior members and performed at the Christmas concert and also at the High Horizons meeting in April. BAND This year has been an especially satisfying and successful one for the Elmwood Band. All senior music students are expected to participate in a variety of presenta- tions to the Elmwood community which occur at regular intervals throughout the school year. Dili- gent, consistent practice allowed the band members to gradually gain the skills and confidence necessary to fulfill all my ex- pectations. Thank you to all the girls who so faithfully worked on improving their play as individuals and as members of the band ensemble.

Could this be due to the trip to the Toronto area?! Whatever, the girls had a very ac- tive year, putting on an excellent Roman Banquet at the beginning of March and preparing for the An- nual Ontario Classics Conference for Students ig- which was held at Barrie North Collegiate Institute in May. This year, we were even more adven- turous, taking a skit and a fashion show to the com- petition. Elmwood students put on a super perfor- mance, placing third out of seventeen schools in the academic events and fourth overall (in academ- ic, creative and athletic contests) a fantastic achievement. We also brought back the trophy for oral reading. Next, year, the event will be held at Queen ' s University. We are already looking for- ward to this occasion! COMMONWEALTH CONFERENCE m m H ill , n »iv (Left to Right) Lisa Rambert, Alison Lewis, Katrina Carroll-Foster " Do we have a proposal? " How would you like a week of heated debates, formal banquets, socializing with students fronn around Ottawa and across Canada, lunching at Carleton U ' s luxurious and well appointed cafeteria, and all the fun you could cram into a week? Read on! " Do we have a consensus? " Aaaah ... the dreaded " C " word!!! The Stu- dent Commonwealth Conference is a wonderful way to meet like-minded people, learn about yourself and others that you are living (billeting) and working with, as well as developing an understanding of the workings of the Common- wealth. With a lot of originality, a little sleep, and some helpful I.D. the Conference was a painless learning experience. Thanks to Mr. McCabe, Mr. Bell (for the ab- solutely essential afternoon at the External Affairs ' Library), and Katie for all your help and en- couragement. Thanks to you we enjoyed the " best " week of our school year. DUKE OF EDINBURGH Front Row: Josephine Yang, Caroline Brisson, Kim Ross, Amelia Greene. Back Row: Jill Pearce, Claire Millington, Ricarda Rudolf, Mile Eaman, Paula Gilbert, Annette Jar- dine, Pamela Home. Once again, an intrepid group of Elmwood students completed their training in First Aid, camp skills, orienteer- ing, food and safety planning, and set off for the woods of Gatineau Park on a two day hiking and camping ex- pedition. After dire forecasts of rain and cold for the long week-end in May, the weather turned out to be hot and humid which was a perfect setting for hordes of blackflies and a muskoil-based tan. The girls hiked 30 kilometres along hilly,: buggy: trails, crossing numerous swamps and beaver dams, and enjoying snack and wildlife breaks along the way. Water bottles were incressantly refilled and emp- tied, as dehydrated hikers assuage their thirst at regular intervals. Despite the arduous challenge, many laughs were enjoyed by all and the participants are to be recommended for their determination, co-operation and good humour within the group. Two Grade 12 students, Pamela Home and Annette Jar- dine, also took part in the expedition, carrying fully loaded packs in preparation for their silver level expedition in the fall - a major feat in the heat, during their many IB and Samara deadlines. They are to be highly praised for their constant cheerfulness, stamina and general helpfulness. A very special thank you to our; Old Girl; Paula Gilbert for her unfaltering assistance, expertise and humour throughout the year. DANCE COMMITTEES SENIOR The Senior Dance Committee organized four dances this year, dances which had unusually large turnouts. One of the highlights was a Video Dance sponsored by Chez 106. Thank you to all those who came out and had a great time. The success of these dances enabled the Com- mittee to donate $200.00 to the Elmwood Development Fund. Good Luck to next year ' s Committee, we hope your year will be as enjoyable as ours was. Thanks, Sheila Barber Katie Bell (Front Row: Left to Right) Alyson Johnston, Sheila Barber, Katie Bell, M rs.

" Our teachers patiently replied, " Soon! " Finally the lucky few were chosen and they went on to create some fun evenings. At the beginning of second term one of the first questions once again was, " When will we elect the NEW Dance Committee Reps? " Our teachers calmly replied, " HOLD YOUR HORSES! " Once again a lucky few were chosen only to have serious problems with the young Ashburians. But ... at long last the second dance was organized and it WAS a great success!!! We would like to thank all the teachers who helped us organize and chaperone the dances. Hot news flash . . . some Elmwood teachers are very talented dancers.

With the continuing financial support of the Mother ' s Guild, we have made several major purchases. Three large banks of shelving were added to increase space for new texts including the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology and the two volume reference set, History of Classical Literature. Several volumes of Canadian fic- tion, 20th century literature, an encyclopedia of mythology and analytical texts on the Second World War have ex- panded the library ' s representation of the school ' s various departments greatly. Members of the library committee have been updating the vertical files, keeping the displays in the library interesting and relevant, as well as organizing a time capsule placed within the walls of the new addition. The Committee looks forward to the continued growth of library facilities and the challenge of meeting the needs of the students. Thank you to the library committee for their hard work and to the Mother ' s Guild for tfieir continued financial support. Mrs. B. Huggins JUNIOR LIBRARY COMMITTEE (Back Row: Left to Right) Angela Seshadri, Kathleen Terroux, Ines Scepanovic, Kim Schryburt, Kate White, Julia Ediger (Front Row: Left to Right) Bonnie Seshadri, Tina Hill, Christina Gandilo, Charlotte Truelsen, Seifali Patel, Mrs. Schmidt Once again a busy year has come and gone but not without vast changes in the Junior Library. A new bookstack has been moved down from the Senior Library that has helped alleviate the overcrowding on our shelves. This created a space shortage on the floor, so that we had to move one worktable out of the library. Many new books came into our posses- sion from the Birthday Club to help fill the new bookstack. What do we still need? More books of every type will be needed to fill all the new floor space that will be available to us in the new library set for competition in the fall. The existing facility has served both students and staff well, but the need for a new home is evident. It is with some sadness we will leave our present home but we are excited about the new facility and what it will allow us to accomplish. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this dream a reality. BUSINESS CLUB (Back Row: Left to Right) Julie Waterhouse, Stephanie McLeod, Catherine Richardson, Elanor Brodie (Front Row: Left to Right) Alyssa Delicate, Vivienne Edwards, Alison Lewis, Hilary Kemball, Mrs. McGregor Two teams were entered this year in the Carleton University Business Competition. Each team made business decisions on a weel ly basis concerning their company ' s production, marketing and research and development. An initial four week practice was run in November with the actual twelve week competition held from January to March. Both teams participated with great enthusiasm and while the final results did not send us to the playoff game at Carleton it was another interesting, successful year. MATH CLUB (Back Row: Left to Right) Mrs. Outer- bridge, Habiba Thawer, Stephanie McLeod, Dilshad Lalani, Susanna Kong (Front Row: Left to Right) Allison Mac- Farlane, Camille Beaufort, Tara Morrison, Nimrose Thawer Mrs. Outerbridge, Tara, Steph, Shu, Pickle, Mim, Hab, Cam and Al all gather between 3:30 and 4:30 pm on Thursday. During this hour, we prepare for Math competitions, have parties, and do lots of interesting things. We have come to understand the Trachenberg system of multiplication and such things, but most of all, we have fun. As the finishing touches are being put to this year ' s book we, the co-editors, are putting together what is left of our frazzled brains through heat, humidity, late nights, early morn- ings, and material shortages, to write these few words. We would like to thank our committee, especially Megan and Meredith who came out dutifully even after the end of school and of course Mr. McCabe for grudgingly calling adver- tisers, putting aside finishing his reports and tests in order to type the mountains of body copy, caption copy, names and write ups. Through all the sweat, blood and tears we have, in our opinion, manages to produce the best yearbook yet. Good luck to next Year ' s editors and enjoy your yearbook because we enjoyed producing it. co-editors ELMWOOD SCIENTISTS SCIENCE CLUB Bottom Row - Left to Right: Christine Gandilo, Jane Lee, Nicole Rocheleau, Mariah Norell, Christina Haritos, Jocelynne St. Jacques, Stephanie Addison, Mary Jane Nguyen Middle Row - Left to Right: Marcia Taggart, Julie Slow, Akua Otupirl, Jenny Roessler, Justine Eyre, Jennifer Scrimger, Nyree Schreiber, Shaghig Maiek Top Row - Left to Right: Cameron Blott, Bonnie Seshadri, Anna Cole, Amy McLachlan, Kim Tremblay, Monica Singhal, Jasmine Bern- stein, Elizabeth Bousquet SCIENCE FAIR Bottom Row - Left to Right: Tanya Burke, Marie-Laure Sauvageau, Sariya Sharp, Allison Russell, Tamara Taub, Sylvia Smellie, Alexan- dra Bade, Middle Row - Left to Right: Mrs. Chapman, Kim Schryburt, Gillian Price, Shan- non Wires, Ines Scepanovic, Alice Lafferty, Tara Chauhan Top Row - Left to Right: Jackie Clarke, Kathleen Terroux, Seifall Patel, Kate White, Tina Hill In the 1987 88 Science Fair the grade seven students im- pressed the judges with their original topics and creative ways of testing their theories.

Yoko Asakai and Kana Saigusa COL. from Japan, and Yi Chung Leung from Hong Kong. Yoko had lived in Canada for a year, while both Kana and Yi had just arrived in September when we began classes. As well as doing reading comprehension and grammar, the students have shared their experiences in both conversational discussions and oral delivery of written papers. Yi is a gifted writer and we all enjoyed reading her weekly journal entries . Kana and Yoko produced albums about themselves and their families that they presented to their homerooms. We also had fun acting out a one-act play called " The Pen of my Aunt " . 2-DoH ' T mjX Em l-DOM " r CHAT OR LDok OUT 3- DOM T VAU)N - V- DON ' T SiHEf IN CUSS 1 THE WIKDDUJ IN CiASS IN CLASS ! TAE KWON DO Front Row (Left to Right) Jane Lee, Katie Chao, Allison Whitney, Kimberly Coulter Back Row (Left to Right) Akwa Otupiri, Tara Chauhan, Elena Trabalza, Miranda Holbrook, Leslie Crate Tae-Kwon-Do is an art of self-defence which aims at a noble moral rearma- ment, high degree of intellectual achievement, graceful techniques, formidable power and beauty of physical form. It can be considered a part of one ' s daily life, just as breathing and thinking are. Since all students of Tae-Kwon-Do are subject to the same rules of conduct and judged according to the same criteria regardless of their stations in life, their origins, and their religious convictions, they demonstrate to the world the essential equality and brotherhood of man. Students should follow the tenets of Tae-Kwon-Do; Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-control, Indomitable spirit to serve as a guide in building their noble character and helping them in their training. i ' Meghan Dunn 1 1L A truth once spoken Is a premise for belief A trust once shattered Must be rebuilt, piece by piece Faith endures no compromise It is undying or it is dead Security is a crystal Doubt consists of lead.

Sarah-Jane Arnold Grade 5 6 114 The Flame I sit in the dark night, on the ground, holding a candle, carefully with two hands. I look into the flame, into the dancing colours, thinking back, to old times. I see you there, and I give a smile; you smile back and wave to me. All the good times are kept in the flame. They come out again, when I look in. All the friends, I wish I could be with again, and I am there. In mind, not body. The wax drips down the candle, like a tear from my eye. It will remember these times, and so will I. ; f • i Katie Chao 13D Marika Farrell 9E Marica Singhal 7H Shannon Wires 7C Searching for a Dream Searching for the time between the ticks and the tocks, the picture of colours in a blind man ' s mind, the sight of life in the deepest sea and the highest of skies the knowledge of words between the lines the colour between black and white.

It is a time when Christ was born, Early on a Christmas morn. Three wise men brought lovely things. Like frankincense and myrrh and rings. Outside, outside see it ' s snowing, Inside, inside, warm fire ' s glowing. Indre Sakus (5 6) Animals of the Forest Moose and deer and caribou.

Emily Bell, Grade 5 6 Jennifer Conway 10B 117 HOMESICKNESS The time goes quickly. I realize I have been here almost half a year and it is March. Soon it will be April and the time of the Chinese Ching Ming Festival. Last year at that time I was in Hong Kong with my family and we went to the cemetery to visit my grandparents. The scene is still in my mind. Now I ' m far away from my coun- try and I cannot stand in front of the gravesite to present my flowers and good wishes this year. All I can do is write down a poem in which the author expresses his feelings on the day of Ching Ming: Translated into English this means It always drizzles during Ching Ming and never seems to stop. The rain makes the traveller gloomy and dishearted. The Traveller asks " Where can I find a tavern? " A shepherd boy points to a distant village. During Ching Ming in the area south of the Yangtse River it is always rainy. This rain in the poem also sym- bolises the sadness of the traveller. The traveller is forlorn because he is away from home on a holiday when traditionally, the family gathers together. They climb hills to fly kites or go to the cemetery to visit their ancestors. The traveller has hurried but has not managed to reach home in time for Ching Ming. He wants to be there but it is impossible. The drizzling rain never seems to stop making him wet and even gloomier. He asks a shepherd boy the way to the nearest tavern where he can eat and drink and dry himself, and escape his sadness a little. by Chung Yi Leung (12H) 118 Witches ' Chant Candle black and pumpkin green, A fallen star and a demon ' s spleen, A murderer ' s iron bar, bloodstained, Foxgloves and a driving rain.

Sue Cameron 11s 119 A TALL TALE One day as I was sitting at the kitchen table eating Red River cereal, my Mom asked me, " Why aren ' t you wearing your slippers? " " Can ' t find them! " I replied. " Then go upstairs and look for them, " Mom said. So I marched up the stairs and looked in the hall closet. They weren ' t there. I walked to my bedroom door and heard a strange noise coming from my bedroom. So I opened the door and peered into my bedroom and " Ah!!! " there was no bedroom there. There was an enormous hole instead. As I stepped in I started falling into a black hole. I couldn ' t stop! I tried to grab on to the wall but 1 got sucked into the mid- dle of the black hole! I continued to fall and when I called my Mom for help she didn ' t answer me. As I was falling I felt a light spray of water on my face and I heard a hissing sound. And then I felt something soft and furry wrap around my neck! I felt very scared and started to cry. As I was crying and trying to find a way to get out of the black hole, I heard a terrible growling, snoring sound and suddenly I fell over a hairy and bony body. But finally I had some good luck! When I fell my hands ended up on sometfiing soft and familiar. My slippers!!! As I put my slippers on I suddenly realized that I wasn ' t falling down a black hole after all - I was really in my messy bedroom with the light turned off!!! This hissing sound and the spray of water were coming from my BIONAIRE humidifier. The soft and furry thing wrapping itself around my neck was my black cat, Harvey. And the hairy and bony body that was making a growling, snoring noise was my dog Nauset, sleeping under my quilt. So once I had my slippers on, I went back downstairs and showed my Mom and then finished eating my Red River cereal. By Emily Morris, Gr. 4 Lit.

One day the Queen fell ill and died, and the whole town was sad until the King found another wife. When the Princess grew up and turned eighteen, the new Queen made her work like a servant. So the Princess ran away to the forest. There in the forest she found a Prince. It was love at first sight. They kissed, and the Prince turned into a frog. The Princess screamed and ran further into the forest. There she met a pretty lady who said, " I ' m a fairy. What would you like me to do for you? " " Well, I ' d like my frog to turn back into a Prince, " said the Princess. " You shall have your Prince if you do these four things. You have to find a monster and fight it. You have to pick a white flower from the top of a mountain, and you have to ride a unicorn to the land of GUMMY, and get some gum. " And so the Princess set off. " She found the monster in front of the mountain. She fought the monster and won. Then she climbed the mountain; she picked a white flower and it turned into a unicorn. She got on and rode to the land of GUM- MY. She picked some gum up and went back to the forest. She fed the gum to the frog and the frog blew a humongous bubble and turned back in- to a Prince. He swept the Princess up onto the unicorn and they rode off happily into the sunset. Unfortunately, all the Prince could say was " RibbitI " , because he couldn ' t speak English!! But the Princess didn ' t mind! By Sarah-Jane Arnold 5 6 Are you really there? Standing, thinking pondering about you -- your love. Do you really care? What if I break down?

It was held this year in the Provinces Ballroom of the Westin Hotel in Ottawa on the evening of June 18th. The Ottawa summer weather, warm and sunny, made a perfect setting for this fabulous eve- ning. The hosts, the menu, the flowers, the ballroom, the band-FIZZ, even the addition of the GRADUATE AWARDS all blended together very successfully. A warm thank you goes out to the Committee who organized so efficiently right down to the last detail so that the Elmwood Formal was such an enjoyable event. We would be remiss if we did not send a special thank you to Mme. Sabourin for her patience and guidance throughout the year. Your help was essential to the success of this memorable evening. 129 THE KNOWLTONS Nicole Knowlton ' s Valedictory Address Mr. Cliairman, Members of tine Board of Governors, Mrs. White, Staff, Students and Friends of Elmwood. Representing the views of this graduating class is no snnall task. Questions filled nny nnind . . . what to say, how to say it and would anyone listen. I had to keep reminding myself to " be brief " remembering that " the human mind can absorb only what the human seat can endure. " I hope that you are all comfortable. At the beginning of this school year we were told that as Grade Thirteens, we were to put our " noses to the grindstone. " When, at last, we looked up, we found ourselves here, at the end of high school, and noticed that our noses were quite a bit shorter. Even in this awkward position, however, we did manage to organize and participate in all the activities that together make Elmwood. We all remember, with varying reactions, the Sports Day in September where we all got better aquainted, especially with the new girls, the famous Halloween party when Mrs. Chance and Mrs. O ' Brien finally won a prize, and last but certainly not least in our memories — the drenched enthusiasm of May ' s Sports Day. This is a short list, which does not include Spirit Week, Ski Day, Alice in Wonderland, Alumni Events, Special Assemblies, and the first Sports Banquet which was a tremendous success. The list of a year ' s activities at Elmwood could fill a large annual report. And no such report would be com- plete without the financial picture. One could hardly ignore the building that is presently being constructed which promises a much- enlarged, indoor gym. But walls alone do not make a gym. Equipment is the next priority, and this year the students made a large contribution to help purchase some of what is needed. Students ' Council held the Second Elmwood Penny and Loose Change Campaign, raising approximately $1500 for new sports equip- ment, as well as contributing a sum of $1200 to the Development Fund from the student body. Still with our noses to the grindstone, we led the Houses to one of their most successful years. And now, we hand the responsibilities, the challenges and the fun to the new Grade Thirteens, and wish them luck. And they will know next year, as we do now, and as classes before us have known, that thanks to the ex- periences, achievements, teachers and friends that have surrounded us throughout our years here at Elmwood, our feelings of self-worth and confidence have steadily grown. Thanks to the devotion of the teachers, we have become people who understand who we are: confident in- dividuals with strengths that will help us achieve our goals in the future. So we leave, prepared to meet the new challenges that await us outside Elmwood ' s halls, with memories of the spirit, and the closeness that we experienced as part of the Elmwood family, WORLD HERE WE COME!!! 130 As You Like It All Quiet On The Western Front Anthony Cleopatra Apprenticeship Of Duddy Dravitz Anne Of The Thousand Days Anne Of The Green Gables A Passage To India A Room With A View Autobiography Of Miss Jane Pittman Becket Birdman Of Alcatraz Christmas Carol, A Clockwork Orange Cyrano de Bergerac Dolls House, A David Copperfield Dr. Jekyll Mr. Hyde Farewell To Arms, A Great Expectations FISHER GLEN VIDEO 50 Viewmount Drive (at Chesterton) Open Daily 11 :00a.m. -9:00p.m. Great Gatsby, The Good Earth Grapes Of Wrath Henry V Importance Of Being Earnest In The Heat Of The Night Ivanhoe Judgement At Nuremberg Joan Of Arc King Lear Knights Of Round Table Lord Of The Flies Lion In Winter Long Days Journey Into Night Lost Horizon MacBeth Man For All Seasons, A Midsummer Night ' s Dream Moby Dick Oliver Twist FISHER GLEN VIDEO 50 Viewmount Drive (at Chesterton) Open Daily 1 1 :00a.m. -9:00p.m. Pickwick Papers Pride Prejudice Prisoner Of Zenda, The Rachel, Rachel Rebecca Romeo Juliet Richard III Sounder Something Of Value To Kill A Mocking Bird Tale Of Two Cities, A Three Penny Opera Tess Under The Volcano Who Has Seen The Wind Don ' t Shoot The Teacher Wuthering Heights 1984 FISHER GLEN VIDEO 350 Viewmount Drive (at Chesterton) Open Daily 1 1 :00a.m.-9:00p.m. 226-1255 226-1255 226-1255 PATRONS Mrs. George Aldous Anonymous Michael R.

Milne Stefan Hensel: Designed Development Incorporated The Junior School at Elmwood has grown in recent years, largely due to the vision of Nancy Chance. When Nancy became Head in 1972, there were about 60 children in four classes. Today we have ten full classes and close to 200 students. i The news of Nancy ' s retirement has been greeted with great sadness amongst all those students, parents and teachers who have had the good fortune to know her. When people think of the Elmwood Junior School, they think first of Nancy Chance, and for good reason. Her respect and affection for children and for childhood is expressed in a desire to encourage each young person to be and to do their very best. Her affection is never expressed in indulgences or in letting them get away with the second rate, whether it be in academic work, or in their relationships with one another, Nancy ' s own firm and uncompromising strength of character has enabled countless students to develop confidence and pride in their accomplishments. Her boundless enthusiasm and energy are qualities she v shares with children, and she sets a wonderful example of someone who embraces new experiences joyfully and openly. She has set the tone in a Junior School of which we can be proud, and we will miss her wisdom and love. I know that Mrs. McGregor will do a wonderful job of maintaining the fine traditions that Mrs. Chance has established, and I know she is looking forward to getting to know the students and parents in this very impor- tant part of the school. 144
