An interview with Mr. lfluckwooii, the Si-hoo!
What do you think of the "artistic atmosphere"
at Trinity College School?
It is difficult to describe any atmosphere as ideal,
only in relation to how it contributes or distracts
from a very necessary state of mind. This is
part of the problem at T.C.S. -the atmosphere
is definitely not conducive to the creative state of
There are natural barriers in any educational
institution, barriers that stifle creativity and pre-
vent the development of individual character,
individualism, there must be some kind of restric-
tions. This is changing, of course, and a few of
the very modern schools are based on the idea
of the vital necessity for complete individual free
dom in educational development.
How does free time or the lack of it influence the
art at this school?
Many of the ideas concerning free time in the
private schools are based on the Victorian con-
cept of boys - that 'idlesness breeds mischief."
It might be an idea for T.C.S. to have perhaps

and most crucial century, their contribution has
been almost negligible.

What is the mood of Canada's students on the
It is apparent that boys have changed in the past
ten years. They are obviously not as docile as
they were earlier and surely not as secure emo-
tionally. The private school students are more
restless, more insecure and more intelligent. They
are more intolerant of establishment ideas. This
kind of mood could quite conceivably be the
impetus for a great and vital creative era.
VVhat are your recommendations for a more
productive student body, artistically?
The establishment of the Sixth Form Art Course
was quite encouraging but it is unfortunate that
nothing came of the music idea.
This is presently one of the most urgent needs
at the school - the establishment of a frame of
reference, very broad, which would accomodate
the development and support of multi-music
forms, an appreciation ol' traditional and modern
forms of music.”
