In a year of so many hardships – mudslides, overflowing rivers, earthquakes, tsunamis and Mideast protests - the wind (symbol of all that is free) is leading you on different paths that will offer you new visions! My wishes are for you to fly higher and faster like eagles that live in high country; to believe that life is to live on the land and learn from the sea, and to feel your soul as free as the wind-swell. The moment is now: seize the day, entrusting as little as possible to the future. Use the blessings you have received and pass them on with joyful love. Work in the service of all humankind, bringing light and comfort. Thank you Adriano, Arlindo, Andrew, Fernanda, Giovanna and Guilherme! I am grateful to Amanda Brasil-Leigh, Antonia Teixeira and João Victor Galhego for their help in diverse ways. My special thanks to Mr. Majka, whose kindness is my guiding light every morning.

A school is widely defined as an educational institution, but to the people inside, this simple building ends up embodying much more. A school introduces not only students, but also its staff, to learning opportunities, which include book knowledge and life lessons. Students and staff spend their days beside people who end up becoming a regular part of their life, and some end up being friends for life. On September 24, 2010, Our Lady of Mercy School celebrated 58 years since its establishment by the Society of Our Lady of Mercy, which was founded in 1919. The plan for the school came about to offer an American, Catholic education to interested families living in Rio de Janeiro, and more than half a century later, the school continues to be a success. As of today, OLM features a vast variety of ethnic groups and nationalities, enriching the already remarkable 500plus student body. Within this year’s senior class alone, there are students who were born, raised or lived long periods of time all over the world, including Colombia, Trinidad and Tobago, Ecuador, Great Britain, Egypt, France, Spain, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Argentina and multiple cities in both the United States and Brazil. This diversity, found within a class of 34 students alone, is a small representation of the cultural phenomenon found in all the corners of OLM among both students and staff. This year, the senior class chose the yearbook’s theme to be OLM itself because it was this simple educational facility that bought us all together. Some of the seniors have spent 15 years together, meeting each other in diapers and becoming adults together. Other seniors have been here less than a year, and if it had not been for OLM, they would have never been able to be part of such a special group of people. Of course, within the many years together, there were many ups and downs, but the ups will always outweigh the downs. The senior class is proud to say that, even with many struggles, it has found its balance and its common point within the school grounds. The school stands as an equality ground for all the seniors, regardless of their age, birth country or years at OLM. OLM represents a force keeping the seniors together and present in each other’s lives, and no matter where life individually takes each of us, we will always have a happy memory to share from our times together at OLM. The school will always represent the place that prepared each one of us for the rest of our lives. As a very proud senior, I can say that the positive memories from my two years at OLM will stick with me for a very long time, and that no matter where life takes me, OLM will always be my second home. The seniors have progressively grown into a very distinctive family, where some have moved quite far away, and some new members arrived within this year. However, if not for OLM, our school, we would not be the family we are, and most importantly, we would not be the Class of 2011 that stays “together in earth, hell, or heaven”. Thank you, Our Lady of Mercy School, for making us the best we could be and for allowing us to have an amazing educational experience. Thank you for One Last Memory. Fernanda Da Silva 4

Our class is known for having different points of view in everything. We hardly ever agree on the same thing, and massive discussions arise from simple things such as deciding on the yearbook theme, paying the bake sale bill, and electing new class representatives. When time came for us to choose the yearbook dedication, we all finally agreed on the same thing; Lucia Helena deserves it. We are grateful for all teachers and recognize their importance in our development, but we could only choose one person. Lucia has been our teacher since 7th grade and throughout these past years she became a friend. At first she seemed like a severe, ironic teacher, always surprising us with arguições and saying that we reinvented history.

As time passed, however, we discovered a softer side to her. In a way, she took us all around the world. After every vacation, she would tell us all about the amazing places she had been to, giving tips of “must-see” and “tourists traps”. Our class trips together were always memorable: Petrópolis, Paquetá, Cabo Frio, and to wrap it up, Paraty. Aside from that, most of us also had the privilege of getting to know the city that never sleeps by her side. And no matter how many times we may return to New York in the future, we will always remember our time there together. Thanks for everything Lúcia, and we hope to see you around Leblon! Just one last thing: “Eu não dei correntes marítimas? Correntes marítimas. (Ponto).”

Messages from the Superintendent and the Chaplain

The first FRESHMAN HOUSE of Our Lady of Mercy School. You are the first graduates at OLM who have had access to laptops in your classrooms for the entire four years of your high school. It was a learning experience for you and for us. Throughout our lives everything becomes a learning experience, or should be. We all must take solace in the fact that we are susceptible to change and we need to learn to criticize, adapt and adjust to it as quickly as possible. We learn from our successes as well as from our defeats. The important thing is to do as an old song, written by Jerome Kern called “Pick Yourself Up”, which states: “Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again.” We, at OLM, wish you all the very best as you venture out of these walls into your new environment. May all the upcoming experiences be significant learning moments as you enter a world of rapid change and challenges. Dr. Charles Richard Lyndaker

Dear Friends, Before you lie the wonderful world of knowledge and the immense challenge of truth. Here you came to a much greater understanding of yourself and of the universe. You explored the vast fields of the sciences and the arts. You engaged in researching and planning your future. Here in this centre of higher education you prepared yourselves to make the first steps of your own contribution to society. You know as Catholic students, the Christian view is that: human beings are to be valued for what they are, not for what they have. In loving the poor and serving those in whatever need, the Church seeks above all to respect and heal their human dignity. The aim of Christian solidarity and service is to defend and promote, in the name of Jesus Christ, the dignity and fundamental human rights of every person. Dear students, you have inherited a tradition of service and academic excellence, the cumulative effort of so many who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much for Catholic education in Our of Lady of Mercy School. The challenges that confront you from now on are very serious. My special hope for you is this: that you will always have a great love for truth - the truth about God, the truth about man and the truth about the world. I pray that through the truth you will serve humanity and experience real freedom. In the words of Jesus Christ: “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free”. (Jn 8, 32). May the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Mercy, always watch over our School and over each one of you. May she obtain from the Holy Spirit, an abundance of wisdom, knowledge and intelligence for you so that, as St Paul says in his Letter to the Ephesians, you may be able to “comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses all understanding, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Eph 3,18-19). Amen! Monsignor André Sampaio 6

Mr. Majka: John you are particularly the most calm and collected person I met and I always did my best to pay attention to your classes, read the work and do the assignments. You were always a pacifist and I would think you should be stricter at times, but you’re still cool and I will miss this senior year I named “John Time”.

Even still I guess I will miss your annoying comments that always tick me off since I got used to it. Rafael Patrocínio: The calm guy that always knew what to say and never let anything I did get to you. I guess I was a handful so I appreciate always listening to me man, keep cool in the future as well. João Victor: I always thought of you as sort of the leader in our class since you are great with everyone and work really hard. I really didn´t get to know you really well but you are cool in my book, I know you will do well in whatever you do but good luck anyway. My Class: My biggest regret in school is that I never really got to know many of you guys since till my senior year I lived so far away that I never was able to hang out after school or attend many of those get-togethers and I really feel bad because of that. Still for five years we all studied together and I spent more time in school with you guys than with my own family so I like to think that at the very least you all consider me a friend. I wish you all luck in the future and hope you all reach your goals and dreams.

Roberta Magalhães Hélcias For over a month I’ve been trying to write this “will” as it is normally known. It was impossible for me to write in so little space all I wanted to say to all the important people that came into my life over all these years. I’m sorry if I’m not specifically writing something special for you, but you know the important meaning you have in my life. Everyday when I come to school there is that special good morning from all the guards that keep us safe in the school that looks clean and neat because of the hard workers and polite cleaners that always do their work with a smile upon their face; and as the days go by or better, the years, I learned from my teachers and coaches not only book lessons but also daily-life ones. At the end of High School it is amazing to think how much knowledge and education they gave me, and how intelligent and magnificent they are. Then there are my friends, the ones that have been there for me and that have made every single day very especial, each of them very unique in their own way, with their flaws that are overcome by all the special qualities they have, and I’m just saying they have flaws because there is no way someone is perfect and that’s what makes everything so interesting. So, my friends never forget that I will always be here for you no matter if I’m in Japan, Africa, Iraq, New York, Rio, or wherever life takes me. Just give me one phone call and I’ll be there. Finally there is my family and here I can be really specific starting with my mother. Mom: If I had to write down in a piece of paper how much I love you, there wouldn’t be enough trees to be cut down so I could write it down. I love you more than anything in the Universe--you are everything to me. Thanks for always being there for me, and I hope that when I grow up I’ll be as great mother and woman as you--I couldn’t have asked for a better friend. Dad: It is amazing how much we are alike in matters of personality. Thanks for helping me when I most needed you and thanks for being such a marvelous father. People make mistakes but you have the amazing quality of overlooking them; so we never feel guilty about anything, because we are human. And as I said to mom: thanks for being such a great father. Isa: My sister, never doubt your intelligence or anything about you; you are beautiful and perfect every single day. I have looked up to you since I was born, and I’m happy to know that I will always be able to count on you, and I hope you know that you can count on me always, even when we are old and complaining about everything. And as a last advice for the ones that remain in school: take care and have fun! Hope to see you guys in the future doing something good with everything that was learned.

Lou: Nobody shines as bright as you. ”Obrigada pelo apoio incondicional.” Ale: I want to be like you when I grow up! André: We are definitely the sons and heirs of nothing in particular. Thanks for all the inappropriate conversations. Ma: You are a human with superpowers. You have taught me that life is truly beautiful even when it is not. What the future holds for us is unknown but I know one fact ­--we’ll be one tough act to follow. Andrew: Terrifying movies, riding bikes, roasted nuggets for lunch, I wouldn’t have changed a single thing, thanks for the memories. Gio: “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?” Twenty years from now I’ll be seeing you walking into the room with your U.S. Marine Corp Uniform. All I know is: you won’t keep a straight face once you see me. Tu: My sweetest cobra, never forget I’ll always be here to teach you how to crawl with pure and utter shame and to help wipe your sweet venom. Rapha: All the things you know, say and do make me admire you more and more. I kept my promise, don’t keep your distance. Nathy: You know you can count on me for anything, you’re the best of the bestest (right after me) “te adoro baixinha.” Clau & Patty: “Nunca esqueçam da sua amiga estrangeira que adora vocês e carrega toalhas na bolsa.” Roberta: Thank you so much for always being there for me, nothing would have been the same without you. Di: Nobody’s success is more certain than yours! I’ll miss you. Class of 2011: I had the time of my life.

Metropolitan Museum of Art Trip to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty

In action at NHSMUN

National High School Model United Nations This year, OLM participated in its third consecutive National High School Model United Nations conference in New York City during March 6th and March 12th, 2011. The trip had our Social Studies teachers Ms. Rosana Paes and Ms. Lucia Helena Oliveira as chaperones and 13 students, including four seniors, two juniors, one sophomore, and six freshmen. These freshmen were the first 9th grade group ever invited to the trip, and worked very hard at MUN, demonstrating why they were invited to participate. Before the opening of the conference, the group had a chance to visit a number of cultural attractions such as museums, the Statue of Liberty, and Broadway. Once the NHSMUN conference began, it ran smoothly and was more demanding than the previous year but students participated with zest. Resolutions were written and voted for at the UN General Assembly Headquarters on March 12th and all 13 delegates felt their mission had been accomplished. They enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime experience, where over 3000 students gathered, debated, and made decisions that show how young teenagers, when challenged, can find peaceful ways to change the world.

It is not your typical bee. Participating students do have to know how to spell a pretty large number of words in English, but the contest is in teams, a collaborative effort of class representatives. The trios also have to be ready to answer some grammar and usage questions in some warm-up rounds. It is fun to watch, exhausting to prepare for and compete in. Ultimately it is a celebration of the power of words in a school where most students can communicate in three or more languages.

On Sunday, March 20th, 2011, President Barack Obama made a speech in the Theatro Municipal in downtown Rio de Janeiro for 2000 invitees. Dr. Charles Lyndaker and Ms. Claire Collins, both part of the American Society, received three invitations for this historical day. As president of the student council, I was called to join them in the event. Ms. Luciana Braga, the Elementary School P.E. teacher, was also invited to hear the president’s speech. This invitation was a one of a kind experience. It was an honor to be able to make part of this historical day in which the first black president of the USA visited Brazil to speak to its people. Hopefully, this visit will make people realize that what President Obama said in his speech is true: “For so long, you were called a country of the future, told to wait for a better day that was always just around the corner. Meus amigos, that day has finally come. And this is a country of the future no more.” Giovanna Miranda

Make-up consulting

Wellness is a concept that translates the notion of well-being into action in a global way. Many businesses today have some activities that promote wellness within the workplace for their employees. Among such activities: exercises, massages, lounges, and many more. The idea of wellness in the workplace is health not only for the employees but also for the institution. Research shows that happier employees are healthier and more productive. What about the Wellness Dept. at OLM? This is a pioneer step for our school. The results at OLM have been very positive. The atmosphere among staff and students has improved as well as the quality of the relationships. Dulce Silveira and Alice Ammirabile 153

HOW TO BE A LEADER! It is with deep affection that I remember the great honor I have had in working with Dr. Charles Richard Lyndaker as his secretary for 30 years. I will never forget the threatened closure of the school, in 1980, and how the arrival of Dr. Lyndaker was such a watershed for OLM. The changes have been significant, and today everyone can see clearly that all this was only possible thanks to the great teacher, visionary and mediator he has always been. Throughout these years he has modeled everything an Educator needs to be. He is 100% part of what he has always taught and striven for: to make OLM a safe harbor for the students, parents and staff. What I will personally never forget is this lesson: Humility, Knowledge and Power can work together and bring about lasting good. Thank you, Dr. Lyndaker! Juana Martins Charles Richard Lyndaker

Congratulations Seniors! With love, OLM Parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;May the sun bring you new energy by day May the moon softly restore you by night May the rain wash away your worries May the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the day of your life.â&#x20AC;? May the Sun - Apache Blessing

Uma Grande Família

By Helena Machado (then as a 7th grader)

Estou nesta Escola desde 1996 e nunca, em momento algum, tive vontade de sair. Talvez pudesse ter ocorrido, algum dia, uma pequena vontade de trocar de escola, mas isso não aconteceu. Eu gosto muito desta escola e acho muito legal o fato de ela ser menor que as outras. Primeiro porque os professores dão mais atenção aos alunos e também porque formamos uma grande família. Como há tão pouca gente estudando aqui, é como se fôssemos uma pequena comunidade onde todos se conhecem. Eu já me acostumei com isso e considero a OLM minha “casa” - um lugar onde vou todos os dias e fico por oito horas. Acordar cedo e ficar até tarde é chato, mas acho que seria em qualquer outra escola. A OLM começa até bem tarde, quando comparada com as outras escolas. A OLM é uma ótima escola onde tenho vários amigos e onde me divirto muito e aprendo. É tudo muito perfeito!!!!!!!

OLM´s Anthem Lyrics: Manuela Almeida, Nathalie Haddad Music: Mr. Marcelo Camera

Our Family, our mother, our strength and our home Our valley of light and our sacred dome Awake in our mind, beside us through time Our pride and our glory we’re drawing our story You gave us the pen and the paper you’ve laid The dreams that you’ve saved and the futures you’ve paved Forever am I your knight, everlasting your wisdom bright We´re singing with all our might

Uma Grande Família II

By Helena Machado (now as a Senior)

For 15 years I’ve been studying in this school. 15 years of waking up at 7a.m. – with occasional (which lately have become more frequent!) delays – and hearing the never to be forgotten morning announcements. So much has changed in OLM since I first came in. So much has changed in ME since I first came in. OLM marked a huge period in my life, and I know that I am part of OLM’s history too. I could not be any more grateful to this school and the wonderful teachers and staff that I have had the pleasure of knowing. It will be a pity to leave this wonderful place, but also extremely exciting to find out how well I’ve been prepared for the real world.

As a Lancer I’ll fight, as a student I’ll shine As a human I’ll bow to your colors divine As a Lancer I’ll fight, as a student I’ll shine As a human I’ll bow to your colors divine Our invisible jersey Our Lady of Mercy
