8 THE KENNEDY YEAR-BOOK ....Ill.I...I.....Ill.........I.mil........ DiiUlonc, won the Junior V.( ).S.S.A. in 19.H :m l 19.?5, ainl also in 19.?8 and 1939. I ' lius in ten years, Kennedy Koothall teams won the V ’.( cliain])ionshii) seven times—a record that is hard to duplicate. In this .si)ort. as in the others mentioned, we have had many outstand- injr stars. Alf Hurley. Brian Casey. Joe Krol. Bill ’I ' emkow. and ' Pony Ciolah. ' Pile first four (jf these al.so won the Sir . rthur Currie Scholarship at the L’niversity of Western Ontario. W ith the introduction of Music to our curriculum in l‘ 37, a Cilee Clul) was formed, and a school orchestra was developed. We can hardly think of .Music in our school prior to this time without associatiiifi the name of Bernard Yuffy with it— Bernie. as he is familiarly known. to|arether with his hrother, Murray, wrote our present school stno ' . Bernie and Walter ' Pronianko were honoured hy heiiifj chosen as two of four ()ntario schoolhoys to represent Canada in a British I ' .mpire Boys’ Hand at hondon, lvnj,dand. We continue to have outstandinjj musicians in our school, and this year, Donald MacCuaig was invited to go to New York to play over a National Radio I look-up. (Iratory has been a high light at Kennedy and no little credit can he given to the teachers of the h ' .nglish Department for developing .such outstanding winners in W.().S.S.. ' . competitions as William Lowe. Dick C.rayhiel. C.wyneth New- hold. Kenneth McIntyre, Jack Wheelton, .Mhert Cohen and Joan Hathaway. In this lime Kennedy has won the Junior Oratorical shield oftener than anv other school in Western )ntario, and thereby holds it in |)ermanent |)ossession. The school has alwa s been proud of our orators and essay writers. On many occasions «)ne or two students have won monetary prizes for writing essays. Imt it was not until this year, 1940, that Kennedy won prizes almost wholesale. In the Hydro h ' ssay contest, Kennedy students won twenty-three prizes amounting to si.xty-seven dollars, tint of a possible total of fifty-four i»rizes—a truly remark- al l ' feat. ' I ' he growth of the student body has heem very great. ' Phe school opened with a few more than six humlred students and this year our enrolment was over one thousand. Only once before in our .school’s history has this been the case. New teachers have been engaged from time to time, until we now have a staff of thirty-two. including our school nurse and the teachers of Home h ' co- noinics and Manual ' Praining. .Many of our students graduate with first class honours and each year sees several students winning University awards. ' Phe Sir .Arthur Currie Scholarship has been won by Kennedy boys five times; its winning depends on both academic and athletic ability. It has been our privilege to have a .scholarship student return to our school as a teacher of Classics—Miss I lughes. ICvery student should strive towards the goal of schoiarshii). . ll may not win, bnt in the striv¬ ing much success is gained. ' Phe efforts put forth and the habits formed are likely to carry over into other fields of endeavour. 1 have confidence that in future years Kenne ly C. I. will contimie to send out stinlents wlu) will bring honour and distinction to their .Alma Mater. So many activities devekip in a school the size of ours, that it is difficult to enumerate all. ' Phe Dramatic Society annually entertains the student body with its fine productions. ' Phe Literary Society, the League of Nations C.roup, the Junior Red Cross, the Chess Club, the Current Kvents Club, the Christian I ' ellowship Club, the Radio Club, the Camera Club and the Stamp Club are some of the organizations that have helped foster the sjiirit of good fellowship which has prevailed throughout the school since it was organized. In 19.?0 .Mr. .A. (L Hooper was called to the Department of lulucation in ' Poronto to become one of the High School Inspectors. .Mr. (L S. Campbell, the Vice-I’rincipal, then became prin- cijial. He held this position until November of 19.R), whe n he was appointed Superintendent of Schools for the City of Windsor. It was during .Mr. Campbell’s first year as Principal that the Forum was r»rganized. It is made up i ( the student body who elect their own officers at a general election in September each year. ' Phese officers, representing each grade in the school, a«hninister all student activities, through various committees, which raise money through dances and sports to finance trips of school teams, buy uniforms and awards, and sui»ply special needs of the school not otherwise provided. Mr. Knapp has acted as a capable adviser from its inception, bnt itearly every teacher in the school is associ¬ ated with it through committees. .Mr. Campbell was succeeded by .Mr. Leonard Wheelton, Princii)al of Patterson Collegiate Institute, who carried on in his usual efficient manner and maintained the high standards of his predecessors. ' Phe untimely death of .Mr. Camj)- bell in July, PH9, w:is very keenly felt by .all who had been associated with him ; the schools, especially Kennedy, lost a very dear friend, and the community at large an outstanding educator. In September of that year. Mr. Wheelton was .il)pointed by the Board of Ivducation to take up the duties of Superintendent of Schools and he, in turn, was succeede l by the jiresent Principal. .A decade has passed. I have tried to tell of some of the accomplishments of our school, but the future lies ahead. ' Phe last ten years were } ears of peace, but now that dread monster VY.ar iias raised its head and interfered with normal life, let us pray that we may be able to continue our democratic ways and hope that not loo many jf us may have to give our lives in serving its cause. We must be free. We must carry on our institutions as in the past. Our girls and boys must bear the t(jrch for the generations to come. VN ' hat sacrifices we may endure are not yet written, but what ever they be. I believe our stu¬ dents. instillerl with the desire to live u]) to the past, will accomplish greater deeds and write new records in the years to come. —.A. ]■ ' . S. ( ' iill)crt.
