From the Headmaster's Desk The w o rld th a t existed fo u r years a g o when you entered is a very d iffe re n t one com pared to the w o rld to d a y. The im pact o f the "Bloodless Revolution o f 1 9 8 9 " is still being w eighed by contem porary historians, but it is clear that the prophetic w ords o f the poet N.B. Yeats a p p ly with as thundering a force to d a y as they d id in Ireland in 1916; " A ll is changed, changed utterly. A te rrib le beauty is b o rn ." The new cha pter in Europe's history, which is being w ritten before yo u r eyes, heralds several decades o f challenge and reorganisation as a new o rder, created through peaceful and spontaneous p o p u la r revolt, evolves in harm ony with the rest o f the w o rld . The challenge fo r young Americans and fo r inte rnatio nally minded young people everywhere is p ro fo u n d . I have com plete confidence th a t you as a class are cap able o f meeting those challenges. Never fo rg e t all the values and principles we have, in ou r im perfect w ay, tried to give you tolerance and respect fo r all peoples, reason in yo u r argum ent, lo ya lty and love fo r yo u r countries and a com mitment to excellence in everything you do. I am as p ro u d and as ha p p y fo r you as I have been fo r all fifteen classes th a t have grad u a te d under my care. I wish you every success in college confident th a t a ll o f you w ill, in the future, fin d th a t happiness, contentment and success fo r which mankind strives. Paul Beresford-Hill

“CHAMPIONS ARE MADE NOT BORN" By Michael Olayos, Cross Country, Varsity Basketball and Track Team Coach From som ewhere in my distant youth I can remember this statement as having made an impression, “ Champions are made, not born.

I think

it was a cereal ad. Now, I could run faster than most of the other boys in my grade, and if we ran for distance, I found that I could out-run them. But somehow, I w a s n ’t quite sure that this w as what was meant by “ m a d e .” My junior high school baseball coach, a tough drill sergeant type (he had tattoos on both arms!), offered me additional insight. The year before our team graduated there was a portly right fielder named Dennis. Dennis was slow and overweight, but with hustle, accomplished some surprising things. In centerfield one day, I played a bloop single on one hop, and the coach jumped off the bench screaming, “ Dennis would have dove for that ball!” He made an impression. Sooner or later in sport, we run into situations that are too big for us to master. It shakes our roots with its confusing pattern of success and failure. As a result, sport leads to the most remarkable self-discovery — of our limitations as well as of our abilities. W e all have goals or ideals, and as we grow up, we have that choice of whether to pursue them or to give them up. If we pursue them, we may not attain them. At times, we may wonder if there is any point in the pursuit b ecau se of the sacrifices involved. But there comes a moment when e ach of us is called to face the s tarter’s pistol, and we find that life consists partly in the tempering of goals, to bring the finish line closer, and partly in the continual and restless reaching towards it. Adolescence is often a time of conflict and bewilderment. Perhaps the years can be w e a th e re d more successfully if we develop some demanding activity that tests, to the limit, our bodies and our minds. W e can then start from the point of discovering how much our bodies can endure before they crack — in most c a s es a great deal more than we would have guessed. This discovery may encourage us to greater efforts in other a reas — school, family, career, nintendo. Each of us has to find that activity for ourselves. It may be running, basketball,

or tennis, or it might be something completely different.

The

important thing is that we ourselves should perform rather than watch others. Time has gone by, and I have enjoyed participating in many sports and coaching a few. I learned that if I guided a committed student who had little ability, that athlete would likely outplay most others on the basketball court. I supported the efforts of some very determined men and women who worked hard and ran bravely. Have I “ m a d e ” a champion? I helped them along their way but indeed, champions made themselves. I w as to learn that you do not have to be crowned a champion to be one. Through my years of coaching I have found that each athlete has taught me something, even without trying,

just by being themselves. And

when it was a champion in the making they shared something that was most precious. I have the uneasy feeling that the athletes have taught me much more than I have taught them.

“ WE COULD HAVE GONE ALL THE WAY” by Hugh Schoolman Boys Varsity Basketball Team Co-Coach The fact is we did go all the way — to Long Island, Staten Island and Brooklyn. By subway, bus and van the Boys Varsity Basketball team has sought out the best that the metropolitan area has to offer. We were not in a league, so our journeymen strived to win for pride. TEN wins was one goal. Another goal for the TEN on the team was to score at least TEN points. Occasionally number TEN on our team (Nedim) tried to foul the opposition at least TEN times. Below is a brief list of TEN most memorable scenes from my two seasons coaching the boys team. 1 — Nick Dehejia kicking the ball out of frustration . . . before it had gone out of bounds! 2 — Yutaka Tamura trying to psyche up our team during ewery timeout (sometimes his intensity was extreme ... I wonder whether Yutaka secretly wanted to get into a fight)! 3 — Nedim Baruh looking down at the court and chiding himself for reaching in, and then looking over to the c oaches — every time! For sympathy? For Hope? For derision? 4 — Greg Weiss motivating last y e a r’s team through silent concentration exercises he learned in drama class. 5 — Brett Boyce who matured so much as a player over the past two years, also shook the habit of usually being absent the day after the game. 6 — Watching the girls team make more than 5 0 percent of their free throws, and wishing . . . 7 — Watching Doran Ezra make a decision somewhere within his mind that he is going to shoot the ball, no matter what. 8 — Marco Depero who in a pre-season scrimmage falls and grabbing his ankle yelled in fear, "M y soccer career! My soccer c a re e r!” Priorities? 9 — Courtney B arn es’ friends insisting he try to move his dislocated finger as we rushed to the hospital. 10 — My tenth and most important memory will not be sarcastic, or poke fun at anyone (Michael Mimoun, Nick Johnson and Richard Grasso — you have been spared!). It is the overall feeling I had from being involved with the team. I have enjoyed coaching with Mr. Olayos and getting to know the basketball team members as a coach and as a teacher. Nedim, Nick, Yutaka and Brett w ere always pushing themselves and each other and formed the core of the team over the past two years. The players have shown p erseverance, malleability and pride on many occasions. I recall great wins at Berkeley and Columbia Prep last year, and at Portledge this year. There were tough moments (I won’t mention last y ear's Hunter game), but the boys team always played hard and supported each other, even in the most adverse conditions. It is this tenth memory that I will surely be reminded of often.

ENTHUSIASM i Marion Appel iris Varsity Volleyball nd Baslvetball Coach Having been involved in playing and in coaching volleyball for many years I have found that the team 's morale and motivation are among le most important aspects of athletics. It has been my experience that if the players and the coach are enthusiastic, whether in practice, uring warm-up or in a game, and if all of us just can't wait to get out on the floor, then I know that we will be tough to beat. "Enthusiasm makes the difference" is a statement I strongly believe in. To get a team on the winning track every athlete needs desire, etermination and dedication. As a coach, I would rather have a player with more desire than ability, and I feel that it is my responsibility to eep this desire alive and instill a winning attitude in my team. I do not expect any more from my players than what I give, but if I give 100 ercent, I expect just as much from them. Dedication entails many things but I think the number one concern should be caring and sharing. I think it is very important to share joys nd sorrows in all areas of life to develop trust and confidence in a team. The most difficult part of coaching for me is always deciding how to react and what to say after a loss. It is certainly a time in which we all lust make every effort to conduct ourselves properly. The true mark of a good team

isthe ability to bounce back after a loss. Defeat should

indie the spirit rather than dim it. This may sound like a trite statement but I coach

towin and my players should play to win. However, we

II learn and grow the most if we learn to lose! I believe that once a player has developed a burning desire to play, an enthusiastic attitude and dedication to the sport, she will meet with uccess somewhere along the way of her career. There is an old Chinese proverb which says that you have to make the first step even if ou want to go a thousand miles. Sports, whether it be volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, running or anything else, is not just a word: it is a ^ay of life. At this point I would like to thank my players of the Girls Varsity Volleyball team and especially those seniors who have worked with me or three years. You have always showed me that what I believe in is true. It has been a pleasure and a wonderful experience to work with lirls who are so dedicated. Thank you and good luck in everything you undertake to Alessia, Ivlarzia, fvlaysoun, Juli, fvlargot, Giulia, and Stephanie. You have really made the difference with your enthusiasm!

This year's te a m was co m p ose d o f ten players fro m various grades. Junior Brett Boyce helped the te a m by clutch rebounds and baskets. His height proved to be a great asset fo r the team . Returning senior veterans Nedim Baruh (captain), Y u ta k a T a m u ra , Nick Dehejia, M ik e M im o u n and N ick Johnson played up to their potential. Nedim and Y u ta k a helped the team at the guard positions with the ir g oo d dribbling and their ability to see the whole court. A lth o u g h M ik e did n o t see m uch playing time he was quick to score when it was needed. Forward Nick Dehejia was slow to get into his usual groove, b u t helped the te a m with im p o rta n t rebounds and baskets. N ew senior Doran Ezra played with a lot o f energy.

SHELTER


T h e 11th grade went to a Theory of Knowledge trip to S helter Island with M m e Z ahler, M rs C ooperm an, M r O layos and M r Schoolm an. T he trip sta rte d off on a cloudy day but th a t did not stop our fun. W e arrived ready to enjoy ourselves and our meal groups were ready to prepare our first lunch. T h a n k s to Key, T ad , Ali, and T ia n a our meal was really great. A fter th a t we starte d to m ake a m ap o f our cam p ground. T hen M r Schoolm an gave us some interesting knowledge on “ gru e sters” (which none o f us understood!!). T h a t night we had a slide show provided by the teachers. T he next day, a fte r waking up way too early, we had activity time. It was a treasure hunt th a t had to be done in the language th a t we had invented the night before. It was quite hard because no one understood each other; m any of us had a lot o f trouble com m unicating, but it was definitely fun for all of us. T he next activity was a silent softball game; no one was allowed to say a word or m ake any kind o f sounds. But som e how we still m anaged to cheer our team s up with signs and expressions. By the end o f the day we all went for a fast dip in the bay. Even M r Schoolm an cam e with us; and we all froze a fte r a couple o f minutes. T h a t night Jo s h ’s meal group had a barbeque. A fter t h a t we had a “ free night” , m ost of us spent all th a t tim e to explore the island and visit the beach. T he last m orning we all woke up very tired from having only three hours of sleep (if any!!). U n fortunately it was tim e to clean the houses and the cabins, and pack for our bus ride home. The trip was really a g re a t success. W e learned a lot about ourselves and we all got to know each other better. T he 11th grade would like to th an k all the teachers for having the courage to tak e us to such a wonderful trip; we will never forge t the tim e we spent a t Shelter Island. W e ’ll also never forget the skit M r O layos M r Schoolm an did about Key and Paul. It was all perfect.

F A IR VIEW


T hinking back on this recent trip m ust bring back smiles upon the 9th and 10th g ra d ers’ faces. O f course, as always, at the beginning both classes were complaining th a t they did not w a n t to spend three days in the m iddle of no where with each other. But I assum e th a t every single stu d e n t alw ays com plains a b o u t who they have to go with when it comes to school trips. Suprisingly enough we all got along and had a g re at time. T h e bus ride was the usual boring ride and when we got to the c a m p ground we were all togethe r in a big lodge. At this tim e we realized th a t we were all stuck together and there was nothing to do b u t m a k e the best of it. W e im m ediately had to listen to a routine lecture a bout how to behave and the usual rules of Fairview Lake. N ow for the interesting stu ff . . . T h e food w a sn’t as bad as we all expected, but then it w a sn ’t t h a t good either! A t each table there were both 9th gra d ers and 10th graders and that really helped to get to know each other. H iking was one of the m an y activities th a t we did during those three days at Fairview Lake. W e w ent on a hike th a t was tiring but fun to accomplish. T h e re was also a night hike, with no flashlights in a large, d a r k field. I think everyone was a little scared to be in the dark, even thou gh not everyone a d m itte d it. W e also did other activities such as learning about snakes a n d the a n im a ls t h a t live aro u n d the lake. W e also tested the lake for acidity and for dead organism s t h a t would help us to u n d e rstan d m ore a bout the surrounding nature. I think the m ost i m p o rta n t p a rt of this trip was getting to know each other, even people t h a t we never th o u g h t we would becom e friends with. T h a n k s to all the teachers who had the patience to take us to Fairview; we won’t forget it. — A le xandra Engel —


On th e w ay to F rost Valley we felt excited an d curious a b o u t activ ities t h a t were on our schedule. When we arrived at the camp, som e of us w ere alre ad y feeling homesick, especially w hen we saw our cabins. The cabins were on to p of a s te ep hill an d h ad a d isag re ea b le odor. Our cabins h ad nine bunks an d one show er. The boys and girls in s e p a r a te cabins. Our food w as exotic. We w ere served American chop suey and beef stew in a large dining hall. The in terestin g thing about the meals is t h a t we recycled all th e rem aining food and serving p la te s and utensils. There w ere several in terestin g activities. The m o st exciting d e m o n stratio n w as given by th e h erpetologist, o therw ise known as the sn a k e man. He ta u g h t us m any th in g s a b o u t sn a k es a nd their hab its. We learned which s n a k e s were p oiso n o u s and how to deal with them. He also ta u g h t us a b o u t th e inner stru c tu re of all sn akes. The n e x t m o st in terestin g activity w as our stu d y of night aw are n ess . We learned how to control our fears of th e dark. We did this by observing anim als an d their beh av io r a t night. We also stu d ied acid rain an d how it effects our environm ent. We were ta u g h t how to use litm us p a p e r to tell w hether something is acid or alkaline. I th in k th e idea of tak in g th e whole middle school on a trip to F ro st Valley w as terrific. We all g o t to know our teachers and c la ssm ate s b etter. We also ben efitted by doing th in g s t h a t m ost of us h ad never done before. The stu d y of herpetology, night a w a re n ess, an d acid rain w ere all new topics for us. The visit to F ro st Valley w as a g re a t experience. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Guy Greenberg â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

W h e n I first to o k u po n myself the job o f being editor-in-chief o f this y e a rb o o k , I p ictured it os being a stroll th ro u g h the park. Well, looking b o c k now I can certainly soy th a t it was a lot o f fun, b ut n ot eosy. The s ta ff started o ff in Septem ber with a p p ro x im a te ly 12 seniors, but p re tty soon it cam e dow n to six mem bers with M arzia Glisenti as the oth e r chief editor, Nedim Baruh, Juli Roberts, Alessia Garzilli, and M a y s o u n Abulhasan. W e gave up our Saturday mornings, a th o u g h t which n o b o d y at first liked, to w o rk a t M a y s o u n 's house. W o rk in the beginning was slow as no one quite u nderstood fully the process o f preparing a page. But with a little help fro m M r. Swift, the publisher's representative, we quickly finished the first 33 pages o f the book. We all had d iffe re n t ideas o f how to prepare a page, but we always m a n ag ed to reach a com prom ising situation. A t times we were all on each o th e r's nerves, trying to find the right pictures, collecting ads, m eeting deadlines, etc., b ut M a y s o u n m an ag ed to calm us down by providing us with a great lunch m ost o f the time. The s ta ff understands th a t certain people's input tow ards the y e a rb o o k has been neglected and th a t we were n ot able to please everyone, b ut we have a tte m p te d to com e o u t with a y e a rb o o k th a t will be rem em bered fo r a long time to come. W e would like to th a n k Y u ta k a T a m u ra and O m a r A lgha nim who consistently gave us excellent pictures to w o rk with, as well as Mrs. Reynolds whose co ntribu tion s and s u pp o rt tow ards this b o o k enabled us to p ro duce certain pages. A n d last b ut n o t least we would like to th a n k M m e . Zahler w ho acte d as o ur second m o th e r throu g h the years and with the p ro d u c tio n o f this ye arbook. Finally I w a n t to say th a n ks to the s ta ff itself. We really came o u t with a g oo d y e a rb o o k and had some g re at times producing it. It will always be a fo n d m em ory.

October 31st, it's HALLOWEEN!! Halloween brings spirit to everyone everywhere In the school. We oil turn into o funny mood, we feel like running around playing tricks on each other and doing all sorts of other horrible things th at w e can think of. This year was no different than any other year a t school, except th at we were not allowed to com e to school wearing our costumes so we hod to change Into them a t lunch time. This took some of the fun out of this year's party but we made up for It In the afternoon. Around one o'clock the fun began with a lower school, middle school, upper school and faculty costum e show. The best parade was given by the preschool children who cried their whole w ay through until the teachers pulied them aw ay from the noisy crowd. The pie eating contest was os . .. messy and disgusting as the year before, but it was also g reat fun to w atch ten students stuff their faces into pumpkin piesi Unfortunately we didn't have the privilege of throwing pies In Mr. Hill's face this year, but I guess w e c a n 't e xp e ct him to volunteer for five years in a row. Would you?

International Evening this year was definitely something special. The evening began with the traditional display of exotic foods fronn all over the

1r

world. Parents and teachers all contributed with amazing dishes from Italy,

g pC T?m i

Kuwait, Egypt, India, Spain and many more foreign countries. This y e a râ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s international evening w as full of dancing, talent shows, prizes and funny skits by students and teachers. The main event of the evening was the singing and playing by Mr. Urry, Mr. Protheroe, Mr. Schoolman, Mr. Kelly and Mr. and Mrs. Bamsey. They sang all sorts of songs, from Bruce Springsteen to the Beatles, and entertained the audience wonderfully with their incredible music. Mr. and Mrs. McLean did some traditional Scottish dances during the cabaret, followed by Burt who impersonated Mr. Rogers. There was also great guitar playing by a parent in the audience. Finally the cabaret was topped off by Mr. King who sang three songs for us. The Middle School also put up an amusing talent show, with dancing, acting and playing the piano. Towards the end of the evening there was an exciting raffle, organized by the school yearbook committee, with incredible prizes donated by some parents of Anglo students. Once again international evening 1989 turned out to be a wonderful, fun-filled event that everyone who participated will always remember. M ad a m e Zahler, with the help of Christian Bisogni, organized a truly great evening and we would all like to thank them for putting so much effort into making this one of the best events ever.

I.B. exams, papers, homework, etc . . . it was all too much, but the ski trip to Gore Mountain a pp eared to be the answer to our tired minds. On Friday afternoon at the beginning of the long weekend, 28 of us from grades 9 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 12 took the Adventure Trails bus to upstate New York. On Saturday morning some of us including Doron, Dominic, and Oliver took a lesson as skiing was totally new to us. On the other hand, Marco, Serena, Nedim, Jason, and a few others challenged themselves by skiing the diamond slopes from the beginning. For some of us, skiing looked like a lost cause, but by the end of the day we had advanced to the blue slopes with relative ease. The Jacuzzi and sauna were musts for our sore muscles and the movie after dinner w as a perfect time to take a snooze. Although none of us had much sleep that night, the next day of skiing was even better than the first. The beginners had gotten better and many of us w ere skiing in large groups. Unfortunately, stopping was a problem, as Renee proved that to us when she daringly went down the double lift slope at approximately 6 0 miles an hour. The second night there was a bowling competition with a pizza as the prize. The "Magnificent Four,â&#x20AC;? consisting of the triple Jewish connection of Nedim, Mike, and Doron along with Nick, took the game in hand, although the team of Jason, Tad, Renee, and Duncan w ere in close second. The third day was great as well and no one w as looking forward to coming back to school. The ski trip will be one to rem ember for everyone (including those who didn't go).
