OF DEDICATION TRIBUTE TO MRS. NORAH SENDALL Mrs. Norah Sendall is one of the many faithful ladies associated with Vancouver College down through its history. We are celebrating twenty-five years of her service to the boys and their families. This event also coincides with her retirement as of June 30, 1986. Mrs. Sendall began her association with Vancouver College as a volunteer. For several years she taught typing and for the remainder of her time with us here has been the librarian for the elementary school. To say that she has touched the lives of many of our students is to put it rather mildly. Her graciousness, her charm and her obvious love of life, have made great impressions upon the minds and hearts of all those who have come in contact with her over the years. Mrs. Sendall has been a consistent and faithful lover of Vancouver College. For that she will be remembered and ap¬ preciated for many years to come. We know that, despite official retirement, she will continue to be part of our lives at Vancouver College. We thank Mrs. Sendall for being herself and giving so much of herself. We wish her the best of blessings for the future for we know God is smiling sweetly on her beautiful life. BROTHER FIRST’S 50TH TRIBUTE TO BROTHER GERARD This year, 1986, Brother Johannes van de Ven is celebrating his Golden Jubilee of Religious Profession in the Congregation of Our Lady of Lourdes. Here at Vancouver College we know him as Brother Gerard, and the elementary boys know him as “Brother First” for he is number one in their eyes. But it is a real “Dutch treat” for them when they say “hello Brother last” and he chases them madly down the corridor frightening and disturbing all and sundry in the offices and classrooms nearby. Brother Gerard’s association with Vancouver Colleg e began, as for other Brothers of Lourdes, by coming here to learn English before moving on to their apostolate in Alberta. After some years there, he and Brother Basil returned to teach at Vancouver College. Brother Gerard is retired from teaching but certainly not from his involvement in the school. He takes care of so many jobs that we wonder how he gets the time and the energy to do them. But he does them with a willing, generous heart and with profound cheerfulness. He is a great blessing in our midst. Brother Gerard offers Vancouver College a presence that is warm, alive and free. What is the foundation of that presence? The three realities of compassion, fidelity and a sense of celebration. Those who know him and have lived with him testify to these qualities and to his ability to live them out in a most human and unobtrusive manner. Our school motto is “Semper Fidelis - Always Faithful”. Faithfulness is a quality deeply rooted in the very reality of God. Brother Gerard is a great example to us of that Godlike quality. By his life he is inviting us to be as God-created us - loving and believing Christians, living our lives in wonder and appreciation. For this we thank you, Brother Gerard, as we thank you for yourself and your works. 9 THE VICE PRINCIPALS Mr. D. Sponza- B.A. Mr. Sponza’s ninth year at V.C. was his first as Vice-Principal. Aside from his administrative duties, he taught Typing 10 and Geography 12. He also co-ordinated the successful Emerald Tournament. Br. D.F. Nash - B.Sc., M.A., Ph.D. Brother taught English Literature 12 and Religion 12. He was also editor of the Teachers’ Weekly Bulletin and the College Newsletter. Mr. M.J. Kim- B.Ed. Mr. Kim is the Vice-Principal in charge of the elementary school. He also works in the L.A.C. (Learning Assistance Centre) for both the High School and grade 7, and runs the Computer Club. PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE We bid farewell to another graduating class, and we thank them for what they have given to Vancouver College during the years that they have been here. It varies in number. Some have been here for the full twelve years but most entered in Grade Eight. The nu mber of years really doesn’t matter but how they lived them according to our philosophy certainly does. The lessons learned at Vancouver College will take on more meaning as the years go on. Hopefully, we have cooperated with the parents in planting the seed for a good Christian life, striving for excellence in all aspects - spiritual, intellectual, cultural, emotional, social and physical. Vancouver College, like any Catholic school, is a venture in faith, faith that the Word of God dwells among us. This gives rise to a community of Catholic believers who share the aspirations of all mankind, experiencing their needs and sufferings and ascending with all people to fulfillment in Jesus Christ. In this aspect we are one - students, teachers, parents, Church. Let us continue to keep striving for this unity and peace. In keeping with our school motto - “Semper Fidelis” - Always Faithful - let us pray to be steadfast in our beliefs and to value a good life consistent with the life of Christ as taught to us through the Church. For our Graduates of 1986 that is our prayer. God bless you and yours, Bro. John F. McHugh, C.F.C. Principal i%Sa8Mi Mr. G. Accili - B.Sc.

He participated in many of the school teams and various groups during his lengthy stay. He also managed to get in on many school trips including voyages to Cornerbrook, Nfld. and Chicago, Illinois. He played hockey outside the school since grade one and, like V.C., he stuck with it. Mark achieved honours standings most of his 12 years at V.C. and was elected to the position of Secretary-Treasurer for his last 2 years. To further develop his education, Mark hopes to attend U.B.C. in the Commerce faculty. Jose is one of the few students who has survived twelve years at V.C.. While at V.C., Jose has been involved in various school activities, in¬ cluding student council, the Collegian, the school newspaper, intramurals and racquetball club. When not studying, Jose enjoys playing piano, listening to his stereo, or simply going out with friends. After graduation, Jose plans on furthering his education at U.B.C. in the Arts Department. He would like to thank all the students and teachers who made his stay very pleasant. Jason is another one of the rare and crazy twelve year men. He has participated in many of the schools activities, including two school plays and three years of football. Jason can usually be found walking the halls or visiting Mrs. Russell during class time, while his weekends are spent partyin’ and skiing up at Whistler. Hobbies include forgetting homework and sleeping-in. After graduation, Jason hopes to pursue a career in the Commercial Diving Industry, making enough money to buy a fleet of Jet-skis and a new coat for his grizzly-dog “Brewy.” He would like to thank all the teachers including Mr. Kavalec, who made his stay such an enjoyable and rewarding one. 34 DAVID GEORGE GRAHAM David came to us in grade one from not too far off Kerrisdale and is classified as a ,“12” year man. David, or better known as “slug” to his friends, played Football and Basketball in both grade 8 and 9 levels and in grade 11 and 12 en¬ joyed soccer. While David was doing time at VC he had one motto and one motto only; “If you can’t be an athlete be an athletic supporter”. David remembers fond memories with B.B., D.D., D.G. and the two J.W’s in the “love boat” and will remember them always. MICHAEL JOHN HUDD Good-natured and easy-going, Mike has been cruising the halls of V.C. for his entire school life. “Spud”, as he is known by his friends - thanks to Mr. Kavalec - has enjoyed his years at V.C. He would like to thank all his teachers for making school years so memorable and challenging. After grad, Mike plans to take time to soak up some sun and gear up for continued education at S.F.U. in the field of Commerce. Mike would also like to thank his parents, family and his friends for their help and encouragement throughout the years. In 1974 the Grade One class at Vancouver College had 20 students. Now, 12 years later, 7 of these students are still at Vancouver College, the 7 students who were strong enough to endure 12 years at Vancouver College, with each consecutive year being more challenging than the previous. These students, now proudly called “12 year men”, are Eddie Wood, Kris Kucera, Mike Hudd, David Graham, Jason Dumaresq, Jose Dino and Mark Brown. Over a decade has gone by since this successful seven took their first steps in the Hallowed Halls of Vancouver College. During this period there were perhaps more changes made to Vancouver College since it was moved from downtown Vancouver. The old Brothers residence was demolished and is now a parking lot. A new, modern residence has been built, thanks to the efforts of Br. Maher and his fund raising gang, where a lawn used to be. The old “Cow Pasture” playfield has been transformed into a formidable football and track facility. The tennis courts have been moved three times and many other developments have taken place before their eyes, in both physical and structural areas. They have seen several principals come and go, from Br. Bucher to Br. McHugh, with several in between. Each of these students have not only endured Vancouver College but have also been excellent con¬ tributors to the school life. Not one of the seven was ever a “nine to threeer” for any of their years at Vancouver College. Their list of accomplishments is far too long to list here, as it encompasses most everything from being avid sportsmen and supporters to being disciplined, hard workers. They have learned that in order to get benefits out of Vancouver College, one must involve himself freely in the extracurricular activities that this school offers. Seven out of twenty students lasted a full 12 years at Vancouver College. This success rate, the highest in a long time, characterizes not only Eddie, Kris, Mike, David, Jason, Jose and Mark, but also their whole graduating class. These 12 year men have grown and changed with Vancouver College and have taken from it memories, some happy, some not so happy, and more importantly an education in more than just the academic field. KRIS JOSEF KUCERA Kris has been here for a long time as well as a good time! When not partying, Koot can be found putting his determination and exuberence to good use on the football fields and basketball courts in an Irish uniform. A varsity letterman in his last two years, Dad has enjoyed all aspects of College life, and is proud to have been a member of the best high school football team in his senior year. He would like to thank all his teachers, and especially the Brothers for putting up with his foolish younger days. In the future he plans to attend Simon Fraser University in the field of Business Administration. ARNOLD EDWARD WOOD Eddie is one of the seven who has faithfully survived twelve years at V.C.. During his stay he participated in elementary school sports, student council, the VoiCe, grad committee, and assisted with any on-going projects, when and where help was needed. During his time away from school he may be found on the local ski hills racing, or getting a financial head start in life by working at Cypress Bowl, or in recent years at Mount Seymour and Vancouver Ski Services. Away from work Eddie was a great fan of the Fighting I. in as many aspects as possible. He would like to express his sincere thanks to Mrs. Russell, Mr. Kavalec, all staff, Brothers, and fellow classmates for an enjoyable stay. Eddie’s future lies in the Ski Industry. 35 PHILIP JOHN ADAMS Phil came to the College from “sunny” England in November, 1984. Known as “sunshine” or “Mr. Participation” by the teachers, Phil has been a valuable addition to the school. At the age of nineteen and still in grade twelve, Phil looks forward to graduation, if not this year, hopefully before he is twenty-one. His only rival in this field is “Ferret Face” who is almost nineteen and will probably be well over twenty-one before he graduates. Anyway, Phil hopes to make it to university either in Canada or back in England. We wish him luck! GEORGE HECTOR ANDERSON George has been trekking in from Burnaby for 5 years since he came from St. Francis de Sales School in 1981. Since then, he has been very active in Wrestling and the Letterman’s association. He also has enjoyed catching the antics of V.C. ‘students’ on film for the Collegian in his last two years here. After graduation, George hopes to raise sheep in the foothills of Nepal in hopes of catching the first legitimate photograph of the Yeti, or failing that, attend university and study Engineering. ADRIAN JOSEPH MICHAEL ARCHAMBAULT “Arch” began stalking the halls of V.C. six short (long?) years ago after coming from Immaculate Conception, Van. He played football in grades 8, 9, 10 and remained active in athletics by managing track, being a member of the Let- termen’s Executive, organizing Christmas tree sales, advertising and game posters for the Ath. Dept. He was also involved in the musicals in Grade 8 9 and has since continued in this area outside of school. Thanks to those who made his stay more bearable: special friends, teachers, 7- 11, and Perry Mason. In the near future Adrian hopes to attend university, possibly in Fine Arts or to travel the world taking creative plastic surgery by correspondence. WILLIAM JOHN BAILEY MARCO ANTON OCAMPO BARRERA Bill has been making the long voyage from Delta for six years - five by bus and one by boat. Bill was definitely not your nine to three type and proved it by participating on the basketball team and the track team every year of his stay. His sportsmanlike superiority does not end there, he was also one of the top supporters of the Irish in the School. His fondest memories include; the Bag Boys, Green Weenies, driving in the Love Boat, and weekends in Hope. Bill plans to attend university sometime. Marco “Spiff” Barrera has been attending V.C. for the past eleven years. During this time he has been involved in such activities as basketball, the yearbook staff, and the VoiCe newspaper. His hobbies include attempting to learn the arts of skiing, tennis, and badminton. After graduation Marco plans to further his education at a university, start a business enterprise, and make his first million by the age of thirty. He would like to thank Mr. Carlos for teaching him that Fred Flintstone is indeed just a cartoon character. He also would like to thank his family, teachers, classmates, and the Brothers for their support throughout his stay at V.C.. 36 RICHARD DAVE BENNETT PHILIP STEPHEN BENSON “Bam-Bam”, as he was tagged, came to V.C. in grade four from McKecknie Elementary School. He has enjoyed school life at College, and has made many friends in his nine year stay. He has participated in tennis, racquetball, badminton, swim team, and the yearbook staff. Dave enjoys short people, lifeguarding, teaching swimming lessons, and he loves to SKI! His future goals include joining the U.B.C. Science Faculty, having fun in the sun at Maple Grove, spending money, and teasing the odd short person. Philip first came to College in grade eight. Although he tended to stay away from most activities, he did spend a year insulting faculty for the VoiCe. In eighth grade, Philip attempted basketball but soon discovered that the game was for coordinated people, so he decided to focus his attention on another sport. He participated on all levels of Track and Field, earning a Varsity letter in grade eleven. Although future plans are as yet unspecified, Philip hopes to attend university in an area of the Sciences and to continue high-jumping after graduation. EDWARD MICHAEL BLANEY “Where’s the girls?” was the first thing Ed asked when he came from public school to College in grade 9. Once recovering from this ‘shock’, Ed found it was easy to adapt to the private school way of life. It was at V.C. that he developed a better understanding of the Catholic faith which eventually led to his Baptism and Confirmation in grade 11. Ed has played soccer for six years in Richmond and is a member of the 692nd Air Cadet Squadron. He enjoys flying and hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps as a pilot in the R.C.A.F. MARK DEAN BRAGAGNOLO Mark, more formally known as Brag around the school, has been attending V.C. for the last six years. Brag participated on numerous athletic teams, playing basketball for all of his 6 years, playing football and running track in grades eight and nine, and playing varsity soccer for 3 years, acting as captain for the last two years. On weekends, Brag can always be found at a party or a dance with his friends. Brag plans to further his education at S.F.U. or V.C.C., or get a job. He would like to thank all his teachers who made his stay enjoyable and his parents for sending him to V.C. Mark would also like to wish all the grads the best of luck in the future and that they will be successful in their own way. PIERRE JOSEPH CECIL IGNATIOUS BURKE Pierre came to Vancouver College in grade eleven from the American School in Kuwait. He enjoys music, motocross racing, and weekends.

He became a starter and continued to play both throughout his high school years, receiving his Varsity Letter in grade 11. After miraculously surviving boarder food for three years, he has been swamped by demands from scientists for his internal organs. In the future, he hopes to attend U.B.C. to further his intelligence. Greg has been attending V.C. since grade eight, making the daily trek from Surrey. During his stay, Greg has been an avid supporter of the Fighting Irish teams.

In his senior year, Greg concentrated more on his studies while becoming a member of the grad committee. When not bothering teachers or collecting English Literature handouts, Greg can be found catching a movie, trying to find ways to get those easy bucks, or just relaxing in his hot tub. After graduation, Greg plans to further his education at U.B.C. Geoff has attended V.C. since grade seven, commuting from his home in the North Shore mountains. He has crossed the Lions Gate Bridge over 2222 times, and tells us that he no longer fears the two ferocious statues located at its south end.

His future ambitions are to join the Coast Guard and rise through its ranks to Captain or Chief Engineer; from there to travel the world over. ANDREW STEPHEN GALLAGHER “Sea Galley” has been bouncing off the walls of V.C. for five years now after coming from the not so far off O.L.P.H. Drew has displayed his ‘well respected athletic superiority’ by tending goal on the Varsity Soccer team for 3 years. While doing time at V.C. you may have seen Drew in one of his more wild states of mind doing unusual things to bring out the spirit in all of us in support of the Fighting I. Future plans include learning how to swan dive, and eating his way through a king size Eat More, and if all else fails ns off to U.B.C. to study Phys. Ed. OWEN ALEXANDER GRANT Owen came to Vancouver College in grade ten from the small town of William’s Lake in the interior of British Columbia. Owen adjusted to the new surroundings quite well.

After the completion of grade twelve, Owen plans to attend a local college or university in the field of aviation, and if you are lucky you may see him in the skies some day. 46 KEVIN ARTHUR GEE MICHAEL ROBERT GUTHRIE Being at College since grade 9 was a unique experience. Kevin wasn’t a part of any school sports’ team, but hockey is the activity that occupies his free time. The teachers during his four year attendance have, in general, been good. Grade 9,was probably the best year out of all for him. Future paths may lead to a career in education, here in B.C. or Japan. Mike has been living the College life since grade three and has enjoyed all it had to offer while keeping up with his school work. As soon as the eighth grade rolled around, Mike immediately took to football, and as a result received his Junior Letter in grade ten and his Varsity Letter in grade twelve.

He found it hard to adjust at first but he managed to fit in just perfect. Thanks to the once famous activity days, Kev learned how to ski. Kevin likes skiing and playing basketball whenever he can. Bro. Nash’s Religion class was very inspiring and exciting and Mrs. Sadro’s French class was the best! Kevin would like to thank all the teachers and students who helped him become part of this school. Kev plans to attend university and take up a career in Dentistry. Dean Heffring has been coming to Vancouver College since gr. 7. Dean played Basketball to the grade 9 level and has played football since grade 8.

On any given morning, “Bert” could be found on his exodus to V.C. from the moss-ridden slopes of West Van.: home of St. Anthony’s School. He managed to take part in the track program in his formative years until the rigors of running was agony of de-feet (HA-HA!). In a desperate search for more wacky and zany times, Robert soon became a grade ten secretary- treasurer, and later, president of his grade twelve homeroom; the goal had been achieved. Robert would like to thank the teachers which he would imitate, not only for their unique gestures and idiosynchrosies, but also for their patience and good humour. As it stands now, Robert will enter U.B.C. and take some science courses. Bernie came to V.C. in grade seven from Lord Tennyson Elementary. His memories over the past six years include Bro.

During his spare time, Jay could be heard telling “Dirty Jello” jokes, or trying to finish one of Mr. Toth’s essays or just listening to BAUHAUS or SMITHS. Jay will always look back at the memories, being called “jose” by “Mr. Heathen” and a certain Brother. Right Bro. French? The infamous “Bus Fight” in grade ten. “Onward bus driver!!” The St. Pat’s incident with K.U. Thanks for putting up with us, Mrs. Russell and Mr. Kavalec.

Sean has participated in many school activities but because of his distant home in a far away land, he didn’t have much time for these ac¬ tivities. But he participates in “out of school” activi ties; most importantly, the martial art of Tae Kwon Do and beginning to pursue his career in chiefing by working as a chef’s assistant. He has had many good times in Vancouver College and wishes to thank all of his past and present teachers and friends, but especially Mr. Burke and Bro. McHugh for having helped him in the past.

Future plans, are blank for now, but “Major, can 1 go on the bus?” Good luck to the grads, have a good one! ANDREW RAPIER Andrew has been bussing from Twatawesome for the past 5 years. He has been a prominent neutral during his pleasant stay and was an active member of both the swim team and tennis team for two years. More importantly, he is an avid supporter and possibly true initiator of the scholastic sport of arguing and would like to thank all those who thought they were right, but were undoubtedly ‘wrong’. Lifeguarding and university will prepare him for ‘life’ and perhaps Paris or New York will be blessed with his presence. But presently, he is diligently looking for an M.G. that runs. “What we think today, will form the basis of what we will know tomorrow.” GEORGE PETE PSEF TEAS George came to V.C. in grade 8 from St. Augustine’s elementary school. Although he almost beat out J.D. in his homeroom elections in grade 8, he has never really participated in the various aspects of school life. George mainly concentrated on the academic side of school life due to the fact that his political career came to an abrupt end in grade 8 with his humiliating loss to J.D. In his senior year George has been an avid supporter of the Irish and was also Co-Editor of this fine literary masterpiece. His hobbies include cars and everything Greek. His 3 main pleasures in life include slamming car doors on parts of his body, root canal surgery sans anasthetic and working harmoniously side by side with E.J.E. on the yearbook staff.

Tom would like to thank all the teachers who have helped him during the years, but most of all he would like to thank his parents, who cared enough to send him to V.C.. MICHAEL STRADIOTT1 ‘Strad’ came to V.C. in the sixth grade from Immaculate Conception. Strad began his football career in grade 9 and carried it through until his senior year, receiving the varsity line award in grade 11 and a premier league all star in grade 12.

KARLO ROBERTO RAMOS URRUTIA Having left Corpus Christi for V.C. and facing high school life, Karl has yet to find out what life’s about. He deeply appreciates the trouble the school, his teachers, his friends, and his parents went through to get him past ’em doors. He has enjoyed the last 5 years at V.C. walking, studying, supporting his favorite high school (yes, V.C.), and smiling. He also had many nicknames: from Marty’s “Charlie Brown” in grade 8 to the present “N.D.”. He hopes to continue his education so he can get his hands on a 930 and feed his kids. But he is yet to commit himself to a field, sciences maybe. As of now, he is only certain that he doesn’t want to lose his buddy J....

The class is very enthusiastic with everything they take part in, may it be intramurals or raising money for different objectives.

We have worked hard all year to raise money for missions by having many fund raisers. Not only are these eager students good fund raisers, but they have also strived hard to reach their academic potential. This graduating class of 1990 has definitely brought a positive attitude to Vancouver College.

They are a bunch of fun-filled classmates of mine that help make school worth coming to. They talk to me and help me whenever I need help. They can brighten up the rainiest day. They don’t put you down or make you mad. Instead, they do just the opposite. And they are generous in giving to missions and other causes. Our teacher is pretty good too.

They dug their way to a first place finish in the Walkathon collections. They are clawing and scratching their way towards what they hope will be a first place in the missions (at least in the Elementary School). They dive headlong at any and all school work that comes their way, each trying to outdig the other with their results. In summation, it should also be said that the diggers are very creative, amazingly artistic, and overwhelmingly athletic.

They worked hard throughout the year in preparing for both the Christmas and Spring concerts. With their steady progress, they are the future of a strong and competitive senior band. The Intermediate Band of grades eight and nine was loaded with talent. Aside from their concerts, several of them also participated in the Pep Band for sports events, the Stage Band, and solo com¬ petitions. The Level One Concert Band, which con¬ sisted of fifty musical students ranging from grades nine to twelve, performed for various school events, including masses and assemblies. Their resonant sounds echoed throughout the year as they played strong performances at the school concerts. Many individuals also participated in the Stage and Pep Bands, and the Chancellor Music Festival. Many thanks to Henry Olemann for his extra help with all of the boys. “Anchors Aweigh,” “Notre Dame Victory March,” and “Tequila” were the favourites played by the Pep Band. Performing at many of the football and basketball games, they complemented the hometown crowds in supporting the teams and cheering them on to victory. The band was built up mainly from the Stage Band, with the addition of a few extra players. 137 Stage Band The Stage Band was this year’s highlight of the College music program. The 21 members earned their way to the school’s first ever participation in the Canadian Stage Band Festival, which was held this year at Expo ’86. The band competed with 26 other groups from across Canada and scored a highly commendable 85 for their performance in front of a large Expo crowd and a panel of world renowned judges. Having reached a new milestone for the school’s music department, they earned their way to the National Finals through top honours in both the Vancouver Kiwanis Jazz Festival, and the British Columbia Interior Jazz Festival in Kelowna. In addition to the Band’s strong performance, saxophonist Ray Culi received an honour award for his performance and was selected to the Canadian All-Star Jazz Band. The band would like to thank Mr. Olson for “taking them to the top,” Mrs. Olson for her assistance behind the scenes, and Peter Barone, Jamie Croyle, Tom Colclough, Ken Olson and Dave Stewart for their help and inspiration along the way. The graduating members would also like to thank Mr. Olson and the rest of the band for the memorable, musical years at Vancouver College. 138 ft 1.

Headed by Miss Catherine McNeil, the program was based on the methodology of Kodaly and Orff, in which her students learned not only to play music on simple instruments, but to also write it and move to it. Grades 2 and 3 played flutophone, grades 4 to 6 played recorder, and grade 7 played the guitar. The band and choir were accompanied by percussion instruments and xylophones. Also, the guitar club met weekly and progressed well. The Christmas and Spring Concerts were a great success and Miss McNeil and her students are looking forward to an even more exciting year of music in 1986-87. 141 142 143 Grades 1-7 + ' i lo r.

It is the student council that works with the administration to create a sense of spirit and identity amongst the students in the community. The council serves to foster this spirit, promoting the Christian and educational atmosphere of the school. This year’s executive was comprised of President, Jason Doolan, Vice-President, Mark Reid, and Secretary-Treasurer, Mark Brown. The council acted as the host for the Catholic High School Students Association ’86 and played a key role in the organization of the Catholic High School Leadership Conference. Achievements: 1.

THE 1986 COLLEGIAN The Yearbook is an extracurricular activity that takes dedication, and a lot of it. It also requires much organization, coordination and planning. To be perfectly honest with you, our 1986 Collegian staff was not exactly over¬ flowing with these qualities. But don’t get the wrong idea — we did possess all of these characteristics. Let’s just say our Yearbook got off to a rather shaky start this year. The school provided us with a new Student Activity Centre, of which the Yearbook room was the largest part, but unfortunately, the room was not completed until mid-October. Thus, we fell behind in our work. Over half of our staff was inexperienced in the three main areas of Yearbook work: layouts, photography and darkroom. As you have probably already guessed, this made the task of getting organized all the more difficult. A Yearbook with little or no organization can be compared to a 747 with an empty fuel tank and a broken landing gear, or a skydiver in mid flight with a rather large hole in his parachute - out of luck. Well, at least we can say we tried. But wait just one minute. What are you reading out of? It’s the 1986 Collegian! Pinch yourself to make sure you’re not dreaming! This is really quite amazing! j Sponsored by D. BOYER AND M.

A letter is not an award for participation; it is an award given only to those who have displayed a spirit of sacrifice and commitment. The V.C. Lettermen’s association has seen a rebirth in the past three years, after having faded into relative obscurity. Under the direction of the moderator, Mr. Burke, the Lettermen have become active in various aspects of the life of the school, especially those related to athletics. They are responsible for organizing and running pep rallies, for promoting the various athletic events, and for such things as taking tickets and ushering at the football and basketball games. 4 § . 1 . jfjg | Hk.

NEWSPAPER The purpose of the VoiCe, the school newspaper, is to help create a sense of com¬ munity, a feeling of being involved, of knowing what’s going on. The VoiCe provides news, commentary and a forum for opinion, and attempts to publish every three weeks, a goal that is often honored by good intentions rather than reality. Supplemented by the “Irish News”, the Voice strives to provide coverage of everything from Athletic events to views on the dress code to reviews of current styles and music. It is a very demanding activity, requiring much time and sacrifice from the staff. From Editors to reporters, to lay-out people, all are involved in many hours of painstaking work on each issue of the VoiCe. It is an activity which is personally satisfying while providing a tremendous service to the school community. For the coming year, the Editors hope to include literary works from the students while expanding the features to include even more elements of school life. There is always room for more students on the VoiCe staff, and the Editors hope that ’86-’87 sees a reawakening of interest in this important activity.

The Varsity Fighting Irish had an outstanding season, coming second in B.C. with an over-all record of 9-3, and a league record of 5-1. They outscored the opposition by a total of 190 points while posting four shut-outs. The Provincial Final at B.C. Place brought the season to an end with a terribly disappointing loss to Kamloops - by far the best season the Irish have had in some time, and special recognition must go to the coaches, especially to Head Coaches Dal Monte and Prepchuk.

Despite the loss the hard work that was needed to get there is in itself rewarding to us as a team.

The Irish began the season ranked third in the B.C. top ten. Their first game pitted them against M.E.I. ranked 7. From this win, the Irish rolled consistently onward, placing third in both the Mission and Richmond tournaments. The Irish went on to win the Indpendant League, 6-0 and a spot in the Lower Mainland Championships. In the first game of the Lower Mainlands, the Irish clobbered Vancouver 2, Winston Churchill Bulldogs, by a score of 94-62. Then after the next victory of Kitsilano Blue Demons the Irish rolled into the final vrs. Magee. After an exciting victory and the championship, the Irish went into the B.C. Championships at the Agrodome as the favorite to win. In game 1 they faced the Cougars from Williams lake and won an exciting game, 90-88, in overtime. In game 2, the Irish faced Mission. In a heart-breaking loss, 67-63, the Irish had to regroup. After a successful and enjoyable year, with a record of 27-9, the Irish finished 5 in B.C. with further victories over New Westminster and Magee. At the conclusion of this year, the team would like to thank all those who helped out along the way, particularly, Brothers English, Farrell, and French, and to Mr. Burke and his con¬ tingent of lettermen. However, the most thanks must go to the fans, who gave so much time and energy to cheering on the Irish in action. A special good-bye goes to the graduating players: Bill Bailey, Mark Bragagnolo, Matt Clarke, John Donald, Szilard Fricska, and Keiron McConnell - and good luck to them in the future.

The crest is dominated by a cross — the source of the inspiration of our Christian faith and that of the Irish Christian Brothers. The cross with its circle, the symbol of eternity and its traceries are essentially Celtic in nature pointing to the Irish origin of the founding Christian Brothers. The outer circle bears the Latin inscription for Vancouver College and the date of its founding, 1922. In the centre of the cross is a maple leaf — symbolic of Canada and of hope for the future. It is interesting that the maple leaf has been part of the College crest for at least forty-five years and perhaps longer, longer even than it has been officially Canada’s national emblem. r _ _ THE STORE WHERE YOU CAN BUY THE BEST COLDCUTS, CHEESE, BOCCONCINI, AND RICOTTA 2580 East Hastings St. Vancouver, B.C.
