.9flllLTHoUGH this school year is
not yet over, it is with regret that
we are forced to realize that the end
is approaching only too rapidly.
Looking back over the events of the
past year is an interestingoccupation,
those which remain most clearly in
our minds are connected with the
Royal Family. The Jubilee in London
to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniver-
sary of the accession of King George
and Queen Mary was held just about
a year ago, on May Gth. From people
all over the world the King had the
supreme satisfaction of knowing that
his unselfish work had been fully appreciated, and that he had
gained a large place in the hearts of his beloved people. Through
his death a friend of the people was lost to the world in all but
spirit, and his son, who has already won his way into the hearts
of individuals of all classes, has ascended the throne to follow
in his father's footsteps. A very impressive Memorial Service
was held for King George, at the School, when Archbishop
Harding came to speak to us.
Last year we were forced to say good-bye to Miss Bartlett
and Miss Parker, who did so much good work for the School.
Both had been with us for several years and, although we were
sorry to lose them, our very best wishes are with them in
everything they may do. This year it was a great pleasure to
welcome Miss Reid, Miss Lankester, and Miss Armitage, who
have already become a part of the School.
We have certainly had our share of entertainments this
year, commencing with a joint Hallowe'en and Initiation party
for the new girls. It seems odd to speak of them as new girls
now, for they have all become such useful members of the
School. Many of the forms have had form parties, and the
Prefects entertained the Staff at a tramp, which proved to be
a very jolly affair. In spite of the extremely cold weather this
winter, outdoor parties have been very much enjoyed.
The Houses have, this year, taken a very active share in
the School responsibilities. The most outstanding feature of
their very able and efficient management was the House Tea,
Which was held this year in place of the usual bazaar for mission
purposes. The afternoon's entertainment was entirely in the
hands of the members of the Houses, each House being res-
ponsible for a table. The afternoon proved very successful,
more money being made for the mission work than has been
made in previous years.

Sports have progressed under Miss Lankester's able direc-
tion. A very successful Sports Day was held on the School
grounds, and the events were varied and interesting both for
participants and spectators. We had two basketball matches
with the girls from St. Mary's Academy, one at the Academy,
and one at our own College, we are now anxiously looking
forward to the game with the Old Girls. A badminton club
has been organized this year, which has provided some great
fun for the members, and we are looking forward to some good
games of tennis this summer.
The Alumnae Association is this year celebrating its twenty-
first birthday, which coincides with the thirty-fifth birthday of
the School. The Annual Luncheon was held in the School this
year for the first time, and was very successful. On April 4th,
Miss Turner and a number of the Old Girls gave an excellent
performance of "Nine till Six," in the Fort Garry Hotel, the
profits from this are to contribute to the Old Girls' Scholarship
Fund. A Reunion Week-end is being held from May lst to 3rd,
by the Alumnae Association, which we are sure will be a great
success. On the morning of May lst, School Prayers are being
read, the following day a basketball match is to be played,
and in the evening they are entertained at a bridge-cabaret.
The Eva L. Jones Memorial Service, which is to be held on
Sunday, May 3rd, is an annual event, in which present and
Old Girls will join. We all wish the Old Girls the best success,
for it is certainly a great asset to the School to be backed by
such an enthusiastic Alumnae.
I would like to take this opportunity of saying how happy
I am to have had the honour of being in a position to do any-
thing to carry on the noble work that has been done in past
years. I feel it a great honour even to belong to this College,
with its fine traditiong and I would like to say how much we are
all indebted to Miss Millard and the Staff for the marvellous
work they have done in helping each one of us. I would also
like to thank the Prefects and the girls who have co-operated
so willingly to help the School we love.
SHEILA O'GnAnY tllcml Girlj
SHEILA O'GRADY entered Grade V, Rupertfs Land College,
in 1928, and she is now completing her year in Grade XII.
VVe scarcely like to count the few weeks which separate us
from June, because we realize that we shall so soon be losing a
Head Girl whom it will be hard to replace. In her studies,
Sheila has proved that she possesses excellent all-round ability-
high percentages are always hers in every subject, and we all
wonder just how she does it.
In Sports, Sheila has equally distinguished herself. She
has been a member of the first basketball team for two years,
was sports captain for 1934-255, and won the Senior Gymnastic
Cup for two years in succession.
But it is as a leader that Sheila has contributed most to
the School, as a Prefect, the Captain of .Iones House, and
finally as Head Girl. She has a happy knack of working well
with everybodyg she keeps a watchful eye on every side of
school life, and has a reserve of energy and enthusiasm in hand
so that she is always eager for new enterprises. I fancy that
her sunny smile will win friends for her all through life, and,
when she leaves us at the end of the school year, she takes
with her the affection of all with whom she has worked and
