PRESENTI NG OUR PRINCIPAL
Big business may be run more efficiently and produce better products than small industries, but
that does not follow with schools, where the development of boys and girls is the main objective.
Often we hear the remark, "I went to a small school and I think I had more fun and learned more
than if I had gone to a large school."
The chances of being able to participate in activities in a small school are far greater than in a
large school. A school with 150 boys and 60 out for football gives 40 per cent of the boys a
chance to play, whereas a school with 1,000 boys, and if 100 are out for the sport. permits only
10 per cent of the boys to participate. The same is true in all other sports for girls as well as
boys. It is also true in the offices held in the student body, the classes and organizations, as
well as in plays, programs, and other activities. Thus many more opportunities are given for
student participation and for training of leaders in the small school than in the large school.
In a small school all students know all the teachers and most students know most of the other
students. Because of this intimacy and the greater opportunity to participate in the affairs of the
school, there is more school spirit
Mr- D. R. Ligthtner
Since the classes are small and there are fewer teachers, the teachers can have a more personal
touch and intimate acquaintance with the students thereby giving more individual attention to
the various needs of the students, as well as counseling and guiding them.
A small school usually means a small community. It follows then that a greater percentage of
the people of the community take more interest in the school and consequently give more loyal
support to the school.
Finally, since a small school offers opportunities for more knowledge and appreciation of the
real personal values of both teachers and pupils, there are greater opportunities for more true
friendships that will last for life.
From the above you might deduct that we think a boy or girl is fortunate to attend Strathmore

lust as any well run organization needs sponsorship, so does an efficient high school need
an interested and hard working board of trustees. Our school has been fortunate in having
just such a board of public-spirited, experienced men. It is largely because of their time
and effort that we now have such a practical, efficient new school plant. They, together
with Mr. Lightner, fostered the plan and saw it through. We all owe a vote of thanks
to the men of our Board of Trustees.
