Approaching the School from Port Hope, the
visitor to T.C.S. is accorded a breathtaking
view indeed. Against a background of rolling
hills, towering oaks, and beautiful green fields,
stands an exciting tribute to the accomplishments
of modern man - the physical consummation
of a plan six years in the making.
There can be no doubt that the new buildings
have greatly expanded the horizons of T.C.S.
We now have one of the finest, best equipped
lihrarires in the country: the audio visual equip-
ment that we have recently acquired opens
countless new doors to us. Our new science
laboratories make possible research in fields that
we could never have explored before. And our
new living quarters bring us comfortable and
cheerful surroundings in which we can pursue
these horizons happily.
Yes. we can and should take great pride in
our new buildings. But there is one fact that we
should keep in mind. We have these buildings
because of the generosity of Old Boys, parents,
and friends of the School. As yet, we ourselves
have done nothing to earn them. To the students
of T.C.S.. therefore, the buildings are not a
tribute. but a challenge. If we are to justify six
years of hard work, long planning, and tremen-
dous expense. we must rise to this challenge and
use our new facilities to their fullest potential.
There has been a great deal of negative thin-
king among the students of T.C.S. this year, to
the point where the very phrase 'negative
thinking' is becoming something of a cliche.
T.C.S.. mind you, is not alone in this respectg
young people everywhere today are experiencing
profound disenchantment with existing institu-
tions and mores. And to the extent that this
disenchantment results in new ideas and sugges-
tions for change. it is a good and a necessary
thing. T.C.S. needs and welcomes constructive
criticism. Many changes in the educational pro-
gramme of the School have already been effected
within the last few yearsg many more are still
needed, and it is up to us, the students, to point
out with as much wisdom and intelligence as
possible, those ideas of oru's which we feel will
best help the School to grow as much in spirit
as it has in volume. What T.C.S. does not need,
however, is the kind of negative grumbling which
offers no concrete solutions, but chooses rather
to wallow in weakness and self-pity. There is
nothing new, of course, about the negative grum-
blerg what is new is the strange glorification of
such a person as a kind of modern hero. He is
not a hero, he is a coward who has given up on
life, and he is to be pitied, not emulated. Woodrow
Wilson once said, "It is not the man who believes
in nothing who is original or extraordinary, but
the man with true conviction".
It really is ironic that we at T. C. S., who have
just been presented with a challenge that is accor-
ded to few people our age, should presently be so
busy whining about our lot, that we are blinded
to the tremendous opportunities lying right at
our feet. Certainly, the expansion of the School
has brought with it some growing pains. But
surely we do not intend to let a few pains ruin
the whole operation. Surely we can find within
ourselves the strength to rise above and conquer
A plea for an end to negative thinking does
not mean a plea for a school full of "yes men".
T.C.S. needs boys who will not accept everything
at its face value, needs boys who are constantly
on the lookout for better ways of doing things.
By rising to the challenge of our new surroun-
dings, we will vindicate the confidence of those
who have left a stake in the future of the School,
and in the long run, help ourselves, as well, to
grow along with T.C.S.
