PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

This publication, lovingly prepared, reminds us page by page about what our school means. From the faces of the graduates who are leaving us, the sports, cultural, house events that are documented, to the wonderful samples of student writing, we acknowledge with pride that we are a strong independent school. In twenty-seven short years, we have seen all of this growth, and we look forward to

the future with a building of our own and perhaps a high school as well. Many thanks to our yearbook editors, Miss Charron, Mrs. Dowman and Mrs. Lister, as well as to those parents who helped in the production.

MATTHEW BLADES

He's too long to fit into bed, and too short on sleep to get out. He loves to bike up mountains, but can also be found diving down in the sea. He likes to camp in the wilderness, but he could never live in the country. He likes hard rock the most, but he still loves a soft bed. Thanks YMS for a great two years!

8 long years of Y.M.S. For the most part in brown I dressed. Math, music, science,phys ed, These subjects I like, but history I dread. Being very active, while injury-prone, Has left me with many a broken bone. Having hair that lives on its own, Brings many comments, at school and at home. Bidding farewell to Y.M.S.

LOBSTERS Lobsters live in the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean. If a lobster loses its claw, it can get another one next time it sheds. When a lobster is in a hurry, it flaps its tail. Lobsters' tentacles help them feel because they can't see very well. By Ben Strauss Grade 1

THE TREASURE CHEST Once a long time ago, there was a treasure chest, and, in that treasure chest, there was gold. There was a pirate who wanted it. His name was Jack. He found the island. He saw the "X". When he saw the treasure chest, a coconut fell on his head, and he said, "Ouch!" The treasure chest was fake. Someone got here before him. He sailed to another island.

THE SECRET GARDEN It was scary when the lightening struck. Mrs. Currie told me to remember it was only a play. I tried and it worked. The happy times were when Colin and Mr.

SPADINA HOUSE AT CHRISTMAS Today my class went to Spadina House. I learned a lot of things about the way the Austin family celebrated Christmas. Some of the Christmas decorations are like the ones we have now and some are different. The Austin family was really rich. Spadina House is very big and has a lot of rooms. The word "Spadina" came from an Indian word that means ''hill" -- Spadina House is on a hill. When I saw the rooms and the hall, I saw a lot of green leaf chains with red ribbons on them. The Austin family really liked to decorate things. A lot of the furniture had nice patterns on it and, when we went to .the dining room, the .table was really decorated for the children's Christmas party. There was green fabric around the corners of the table with flowers on it. In the middle of the table, there was a big toy horse pulling a carriage with a doll in it. The place cards were little pictures of drummer boys or Little Red Riding Hood and there was pretend food made out of papier mache. Back in 1866, the ladies wore long dresses and so did the girls. The boys wore very itchy clothes -- they wore a top and very short pants until they were 12. The children had to dress like their parents because, back in 1866, the people thought it was proper. There were lots of rooms and we heard what they did in them. For example, the Blue Room was for the children to play quiet and nice games or to do their homework after school while their nanny would watch them. The Library was for Mr. and Mrs. Austin to have a peaceful time after the children were asleep -- they could have discussed something or read a book. There was a plant room too -- I think that was my favourite room! By Kim Le Grade3


GRADE 3 WENT TO PIONEER VILLAGE. WHEN WE CAME BACK WE WROTE A COUNTING BOOK TOGETHER.

1 older pioneer child taking care Of many children here and there. 2 pioneers getting water They put it on the stove to make it hotter. 3 pioneers washing dishes Thinking of some Christmas wishes. 4 pioneers in a general store Trading goods and getting more. 5 pioneers churning butter They'll make cookies with a tin cutter. 6 pioneers collecting eggs From under the chickens' legs. 7 girls cooking rice Oh yum, that looks nice. 8 pioneers sewing leather straps While babies take their afternoon naps. 9 pioneers making wooden tools For building some kitchen stools. 10 animals being fed by ten Don't forget about the hen. 11 pioneer children milking a cow Watch out! It might step on your foot- ow! 12 pioneers sawing a tree Two on each saw, that's the way it should be! 13 pioneers picking berries One had an apple and the rest had cherries. 14 pioneers shearing sheep Every cut they hear a peep! 15 pioneers clean and tease the wool To tease you have to pull. 16 pioneers making punch rugs Poking with pencils and pulling with tugs. 17 pioneers making candles out of fat Dip them in and out and that's that! 18 pioneers are making pot pourri The first one said, ''Will you help me?" 19 pioneers working on the loom Singing "Beat, beat, change your feet!" in the sewing room. 20 pioneer children making brooms & To help the mothers sweep the rooms. 21 pioneers pulling wool Until the carders all were full. 22 people spinning wool today For clothes to keep them warm until May.

MADELINE

Joss had a baby. The baby's name is Madeline. Joss is my Aunt. Madeline is her first baby. I am Madeline's cousin. I saw my cousin in the Hospital. Her mom was sitting up in bed and Madeline was in her arms. I took her a toy that squeaks when you hold it and a rattle that sings when you press it. I also gave her a bottle for when she is bigger. She has black hair and lots of it. Her eyes are blue. She is medium in her size. I think she is sort of heavy because, when Joss lets me hold her in my lap, I can't lift her. I know I can't hold her when I stand up. By Jackie Porter Grade 1


PETS Laura and I share a cat called Oreo. It's fun. The cat stays at my house because Laura's dad is allergic. I like sharing a cat because, when she comes over, I feel good that she gets to see our cat. I feel sorry for her because now she doesn't see the cat as much but she sees it sometimes. I have a hamster named P.J. He is nice and also pretty. He had red eyes because he is blind. We give him vegetables and fruit. They are big treats for him! I had five fish but four died, so now I have one. He is very lonely in his big tank. He is two years old. That is old for a fish. Now, we have two more fish. They are very healthy because they have dark reddish orange skin. I'm glad they're healthy. By Katie Lewis Grade3 REMEMBRANCE DAY On Remembrance Day, I learned why we wear poppies. It is to remember the soldiers who died to make Canada a peaceful country. The reason that we don't use daisies or tulips i~ because there were poppies growing all over the place where some of the soldiers died, and the colour of the poppies was the colour of blood. On Remembrance Day, at 11:00, you have to be silent for 2 minutes. Remembrance Day is the 11th day of the 11th month. By Jordan Morassutti Grade3 DENTISTS I'm here to tell you about teeth. So take care of your teeth by seeing your dentist, and by brushing and flossing everyday. It is important to keep your teeth healthy. I will be a dentist. By Diana Kyung Grade 1 DEAR SANTA, For Christmas we want two new houses and one repaired door and never to see that wolf that blew down our house again! Love, The 3 Uttle Pigs By Eli Cohl Grade2


MY NEW CAST I broke my right arm two weeks ago. One evening on the weekend, I was skating at Otter Creek. I fell on the ice. My arm hurt. I cried. My mom took me to the Centenary Hospital in Scarborough. We were there for two hours, and I got a white cast. On Thursday, I went to the Hospital for a new cast. I had a choice of two colours. They were blue or green. I picked green. I met a boy called David at the Hospital. He got a new cast too. We went in together. He chose a blue cast. The doctor let me keep my cast. By Gregory Logaridis Grade 1

THE SECRET GARDEN When we went to see The Secret Garden, I was excited. I really liked it when it was intermission so I could guess the next part. I wondered if the actors were scared of the dark. I would be! From the play I learned not to think of yourself and not to be bossy. By Jonathan Marin Grade2 MY BIRTHDAY PARTY Once upon a time, my friends came to my party. We did ceramics. I made a plaque that says, "It's great to be a kid". The other kids made butterflies. We had pizza and we had cake and ice cream. After lunch, I gave out loot bags to my friends. I liked doing the ceramics best. I had a good time at my party. By Jordana Kerbel Grade3 This page donated by the family of Zoe Paliare.


HUMBER ARBORETUM Today we went to Humber Arboretum, and I tasted something called sumac. I learned that the Native People lived in a house called a longhouse. It took 16,000 trees to build it. These are some of the trees we saw: the weeping willow, pine trees, oak trees, and the hawthorne tree. We saw some moss on a dead tree. The weeping willow made aspirins. We slid down an k~ hill. It was really fun to do. It was funny when. some~ple slid into a little ditch. I learned that corn, squash, and beans were called the Three Sisters. I did not know that they helped each other grow. By Lauren Saville Grade2


EARLY SETTLER ClllLDREN Early settler boys had to have long hair until the age of six or seven. They wore skirts and sometimes they wore their hair in curls. People thought that, if a child misbehaved, he should be punished immediately. The children learned how to knit at the age of four. The girls knitted scarves, mittens and dolls' clothes. The rich children had to behave like little adults. They wore clothes like their parents. They would wear velvet dresses. If boys were from Scotland, they would wear their hairs in curls and a Scottish kilt.

Children had homemade toys, often made by their grandparents. These toys were not fancy and parents started to think that children needed to play, not just work. Parents wanted to have more and more children because of the helping hands they get. By Kira Steiner Grade3 SEPTEMBER 16, 1991 Teddy bear, Teddy bear What do you wear? A purple bow And my fur is white as snow. Stitches is my name And I like to watch the rain And play a game. By Carleton Eckhardt Grade 1 SPACE I am here to tell you about space. Our galaxy has nine planets. Their names are Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Uranus. The sun is hot. It is more than 6,000 degrees C. The sun gives us energy and light. The moon is very cold. It comes out in the night. Some days, if it's clear, it comes out. The Milky Way is cold. There are yellow and white planets.

RABBITS Rabbits have two front teeth. They are big and they chew with them. They eat lettuce and carrots. Rabbits have good smelling noses which they twitch a lot. Rabbits have big ears. They can hear very well. Rabbits have bunchy tails. Their hind legs are bouncy so they can jump high. By Blair Aronovitch Grade 1


HUMBER ARBORETUM At Humber Arboretum, I learned that leaves are like a vacuum cleaner-- they clean the air. We got to smell the different smells of leaves and plants. We saw some bones that were interesting. We got to touch the worms. We got one big one, and Hilary's group got three little worms. By Leah Dietrich Grade2 PEOPLE OF THE STONE AGE Stone Age men lived in a cave. They hunted for food. Women worked at home. They lived a long time ago. The Stone Age men chased a sabre-toothed tiger. They dug a hole. They put a spike in the hole and they chased the tiger into the hole. They also chased a mammoth which was a furry elephant. They made tools out of flint. Flint is a stone. Stone Age men went mining for flint. They made fire out of flint. Women made tools like scrapers. They rubbed the flint until it made a sharp end. The Stone Age men went to a cave where a bear was living. They killed the bear. They painted pictures on the walls of the animals they hunted. Stone Age men lived in the cave and made a fire to keep them warm. Stone Age women made needles out of bone. They sewed with spun wool. They made pots and ovens. By Ben Strauss Grade 1


FORT YORK

The officers lived much better a cupboard in it.

soldiers. They had their own bedroom with

Officers could go in to the town for balls and dances. They were the ones who made sure the soldiers did their duties and they planned the strategies if there was an attack. Their dining room was very fancy. The officers ate well -- they got wine and different kinds of meat. They had biscuits and cakes and other good food. There was one long table where officers were served their meals. There were lots of windows and candles. The life of an officer was a good life. By Mark Rupert and Lesley Cresswell Grade3


MY CAMPING TRIP I went to my cottage for two nights and three days. I only went for one swim because the second day the water was very cold. My dad went because he didn't mind if it was cold or not. I went camping with my family and with my friend's family and my uncle. We had three tents. It rained one day and one tent got wet. The second day, it was sunny. I spotted a snapping turtle, but it had a cracked shell. My dad thought that a bad person threw a rock on his shell and hurt it. I felt very sorry for the turtle and so did my friend. Then my friend saw a poisonous snake and we had to be careful. When we went in the water, we went for a quick swim and then we swam across the lake and back. We had three canoes that were green, red and grey. We asked my friend's family if they wanted to come to our cottage. They said they were too busy, and so we went into our canoes and paddled to our cars. We stopped for lunch on a rock, and then we paddled and paddled and paddled and paddled. Then we did a little portage to get to our car. Our cottage is not very far away from our camping place, and we drove for half an hour and came to our cottage. We had fun on our camping trip and so did my uncle and my friend's family. By Corinne Vlcek Grade3

TilE COLOUR BLUE

Blue is the best Because blue starts with B. My name starts with B. I always want water in my blue cup not in my red cup. I always want to wear my blue stockings but mom says wear your red stockings, they are warmer I can't take anymore of this blue bother So I must say good-bye. By Blair Aronovitch Grade 1


ENOCH TURNER SCHOOLHOUSE Today Miss Henderson caned me. I was late coming from lunch and I did not listen to the lesson. Miss Henderson is a very strict teacher. Yesterday I was talking and had to wear a sign saying "I WILL NOT STOP TALKING." There are very strict rules .â&#x20AC;˘ Number one is SILENCE; the next is OBEDIENCE. If you do not obey them, there are very severe punishments. The school is a huge rectangle. I am in third grade. First, we had my favourite subject-- arithmetic. We said the 2 times and 3 times tables out loud. For spelling, we had a word for every letter in the alphabet. I got seven wrong today. We read a book called A Boy and His Nuts. We each read one sentence. Then we had writing. We wrote from A to H (I am horrible at handwriting-- I don't like it and I got in trouble for bad writing.) I do not like Miss Henderson. She is very mean and strict because there are one hundred people in our class. She is very tall and she always makes you embarrassed when you behave badly. I wish I could play marbles, tag, or hide and seek like other kids in my class, but it is time to go to my master's house. I am a servant when I am not in school. by Francis Shih Grade 3

NATURE I want to write about nature. I like the colours and the rain which falls like ~unfl?w~r seeds. .It is very colourful outside my house. I wish in my 1magmat10n that ram would come down in colours. Then the sun comes out and dries up all the rain. When it rains out, the flowers look up at the sun and drink the rain. The rainbow shows us a sign that the rain is drying up. By Hugh Wallace Grade 1


York Montessori School Toronto Dear Patrice, I am 8 years old. I like math, phys-ed and French. My name is Hans. I like to read books and play sports. There is snow all over the ground. I hope you are having a good time in school. I go to a private school. We are doing three and two times tables. We just learned algebra. I hope I hear from you again some time. Your friend, Hans Zimnoch Grade2 SNOWSHOES The snowshoes were used for transportation when thick snow was on the ground. The snowshoes had wooden frames that were laced with hide thongs. They used snowshoes to make travel easier in the deep snow. The snowshoe was held onto the foot by leather straps. The snowshoe kept travellers from sinking into the deep snow. It looked like a tennis racquet. By Susan Spratt and Sabrina Lantos

SQUIRRELS A squirrel hibernates in the winter. This means it sleeps in the winter. Before winter comes, it collects nuts and eats them. It can be brownish red, gray or black. It lives in a hole in a tree. By Carleton Eckhardt Grade 1 This page donated by the Eckhardt family.


MACKENZIE HOUSE One day, there was a boy named William Lyon MacKenzie. He was poor. He got a very bad fever. His hair fell out and he got an orange wig. While he was ill, he loved to read. He read every book in a library and he wrote notes about what he read. He was from Scotland and he worked on a printing press. There was also a man named John Strachan. He was very rich and he believed rich people should rule. All the rich people were called the Family Compact. MacKenzie hated John Strachan. In his newspaper, he wrote bad things about him. MacKenzie had a bad temper. When he got mad, he threw his wig across the room. One day, the Family Compact said, "MacKenzie is out of town. Let's wreck his store." They did. When MacKenzie came back, he took a hyper-spaz. They all went to court. The Family Compact thought the judge was one of them, but they were wrong, and they had to pay MacKenzie three thousand dollars. More people read his newspaper. By Laurence Payne Grade3

A CLOWN AT THE FAIR I saw a clown when I went to the fair. The fair was at Brown School. I went to the fair with my dad and my sister. We went to the playground and hung on the bars. Then we went to listen to the music. Some of the children of Brown School were making music with drums, keyboards and guitars. After we listened to the music, we saw the Clown. He was a big man but he looked small because he was kneeling down. He had a face that was painted in different colours. He had a plastic mouse on his hat. He looked up at his hat and started to scream. The people laughed at him. We went home soon after. By Daniel Steiner Grade 1

I walked in this morning to find a big cage with a cover. I asked Mrs. Clegg what was under it, and she said it was a surprise. The suspense was killing me! After gym, I walked in and found everyone on the carpet. I quickly ran over, and found myself in the second row. Mrs. Clegg explained that under the cover was a chinchilla named Chipper. Then, gently she slipped the cover off the cage and I saw the cutest thing I've ever seen. Chipper was small and grey, and instead of little paws, in my eyes, I saw little hands. Mrs. Clegg told us that chinchillas are nocturnal creatures that live in the Andes. The sad part is, over 2000 chinchillas are used to make fur coats each year. My opinion about using animals for fur coats is,"No, helpless animals should not be turned into a fur coat!"


THE LISBON THING Lisbon is the capital of Portugal, which is near the Strait of Gibraltar. People there believe that a monster controls the sea and land. People throw food and gold into the sea to keep the monster happy. If they don't they think the monster will cause tidal waves or earthquakes. People there throw away 700 tons of food and gold a year. The rumour started after the great Lisbon earthquakes of 1531, which took 40,000 lives, and in 1755, which took 60,000 lives and completely devastated the city. After that, people thought it was caused by a monster, and that is how the rumour started. The monster has horns coming out of his head and three bulging eyes, a checkered body, a venus fly trap and serpents on its head, as well as a mustache. People who see it will die of fright. This happened to a very foolish man. His name was Bill. He wanted to see what it looked like. So he dived into the sea to look for .the monster. When he saw it, well, you know what happened. So, if you ever go to Lisbon, don't look into the water! by Brendan Zwelling GradeS

January 30, 2202 Dear Uncle Bob, I was put into suspended animation for one week. We just passed Earth. We learned from the captain that the Earth is made up of more than 70% water. I even took a faint picture of the Great Wall of China. It can be seen from space. Your nephew, David Wood by David Wood Grade4


SKI DAY The ski day was fun. We did all the things from sipping soup to learning how to ski to almost skiing into a tree. The skis were different from the ones I own, but I liked them because they were easier to use than my own skis. We got there by bus, then rented skis, looked at the trees, and began to ski. At lunch we had soup and grilled cheese sandwiches which wasn't a very civilized lunch. Then back to the hills we went for the rest of the day. At the end of one trail we listened to pure silence. Then back to the bus we went for a long, long bus ride home. By Pearce Fallis GradeS

GRUB DAY I like grub days because we get to have pizza at lunch. Your mum can't make you eat anything. When you're wearing your grub clothes it makes you feel more comfortable. You feel more loose, and you feel more free because sometimes at any school you feel locked up. At recess you don't have to worry that much that you will get your clothes dirty. I like how the grade eights come in and serve us. I just love grub days. by Robin Spratt GradeS


KNIGHTS OF THE ENDLESS DAY "Knights of the Endless Day" is a very musical play in the medieval time. It takes place in the fantasy land of Orriador. It is written by Robert Priest and directed by Jennifer Stein. Cliff Saunders plays Ogo, a commoner who wishes to be a knight. He plays a good and humorous part. I personally liked him. Rick Roberts plays Fub, a very funny nobleman. He also wishes to be a knight and to be that he has to conquer the Mite. Oliver Dennis plays Vent, a nobleman who likes music, and he also believes in luck. This play is very funny and is great for kids over five years of age. The scenery is wonderful and creative, the music magical and the set is creative. The story is about Ogo trying to be a knight but he has to pass a dangerous quest with the baby Princess lllia. The lighting is superb. I think you should go see it now. It is playing from January 10 to February 9. by Amanda Gallimore Grade4 )

INSTRUMENTS When I first got my clarinet a voice kept saying, "Open the case," so I did. Then it said, "Take it out," and then my good voice said, "No you might break it." "Yes," the other voice said. "No." "Yes." "No more arguing." All night I couldn't sleep. I kept thinking about my clarinet. I'll just take another peak ... but no, it's too late, so I went to sleep. Actually, in the morning, the urge wasn't as strong but I looked again. I took each piece out, one at a time. Boy, did I want to stick it together. Then I said, "No!" But, it would have been so marvellous to press the silver keys and blow and make a sound. When the day came I was jumping around with joy and felt like a new person. I felt big and grown-up and proud. I wanted the whole world to know that I, me, small me, had a clarinet! When I opened the case my fingers started to fidget and lift out the mouth piece and stick the whole thing together. But I kept saying, "I would if I could, but I can't so I won't." When band came I was so happy. I put the reed in and blew and made a sound! I was satisfied. I got to blow my clarinet. by Nicole Mills GradeS

THE MOVIE It was Saturday morning and while I was still in bed I was hoping to see a movie at

Yorkdale Mall. I hopped out of bed, jumped into my clothes, and gobbled down my breakfast. I asked my mother for some money to see a movie. Out on the street, I set out on my journey to my friend's house. From there, his mother gave us a ride to Yorkdale. Once we were there, we jumped out of the car, and went into the film section to see the movie. It was called "The Monstrous Whale". It was rated "R", so we bought tickets to see another movie, then we snuck in to see "The Monstrous Whale". The movie was thrilling. We watched the whale overturn boats, scaring people. Then finally, it was chased in to the propeller of a navy war ship. At the end of the movie my friend's mother picked us up and took us home. That night I had terrible nightmares about the huge, huge whale. I thought I was eaten by the whale and woke up screaming. The moral of the story is never see movies that scare you. Never mess with your dreams. by Beaujon Davidson GradeS


FUZZY

It was a bright and sunny day in July. My family and I went to my cottage on Clear Lake. As soon as we arrived I went up to my room with some clothes. Then something very strange happened. I opened .~P.e drawer and out popped a small ball of fur. It was an extraordinary thing covere,-. v.nt.lt purple fur. It couldn't have been more than a foot tall. Its soft brown eye~ l..;oked frightened and confused as they stared intently into mine; I couldn't help but notice its mammoth pair of feet. "Hungry," he whispered. "Hungry." I almost screamed but I thought better of it. "I must be hallucinating," I said out loud. "Hungry," he repeated, this time louder. "A figment of my imagination," I said to myself, sounding more reassured than I actually was. I decided to try to ignore it. I had my lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon on the beach. I went to the Juke Box Cafe. After dinner I watched a movie that was on T.V. and went to bed. All night I dreamed about small, furry animals calling, "Hungry," over and over again. I woke up to hear yet another, "Hungry." Wearily I stumbled down the stairs and grabbed the first item of food I came across which happened to be a large bag of potatoes. I dragged them up the stairs. When I reached my room I placed a potato on the floor and backed away. Slowly it crept up to the potato and wolfed it down. "More food," it cried joyously, so I placed another one on the floor. He ate this and seemed to be satisfied so I went back to bed. I was sort of getting used to the idea of having a monster living in my cottage. When morning came I woke him and asked, "What are you doing here?" "Lost, abandoned," was his reply. Then I went to my cupboard and pulled out a map of the world. "Where do you live?" He poured over the map and jumped on Australia. "What is

you~

name?" I asked.

"Fuzzy," he replied. "Fuzzy lonely," he said tearfully. For a minute I didn't know what to do, then I got an idea. I picked him up and whispered, "You're going home." The next day I got a box, and Fuzzy and the potatoes were mailed from Peterborough to Australia. I guess I miss having Fuzzy around, but at least I know he is happy. by Jessica Eisen Grade 5

THE BARE SPOTS Hi, my name is Sheila O'Salo and I live in the rainforest. It is a very beautiful place to live, but just yesterday I discovered my favourite tree was gone. I thought I had come the wrong way, but I was wrong. Right in front of my eyes was a tree stump! I knew what had happened. A big monster with big wheels had taken it away. I ran home crying to my mum. I told her what h::-.cl happened. She said that the government had to tell us that there will be a !at of trees gone. That night our family ate in silence. Our family was very sad. When my mum was tucking me in that night, I asked her if we would move to ~'big smokey city. She said, "I hope not!"

The next morning I felt a lot better, but the rest ::>f my family was still sad. That day was very scary. I went to collect fruit but I had only gone about fourteen steps when I heard a sound like "Crash". There it was again. I went toward that strange sound. I had only gone a few steps and then I saw something. It was a big four-wheeled monster. I screamed and ran. When I got home I told my father. He said that the machine I had seen was a bulldozer. I thought about it. That night I cried. I really didn't want to go to a city but if the rainforest was cut down we wouldn't have air to breathe. The next morning I was better. My family was talking again after breakfast. I went to see the spot where I had seen the bulldozer. When I got there I almost cried. There were no beautiful trees. I stayed there for about one hour. I tried to plant twigs to make it look better, but it made it look worse so I stopped and I went home. I told my mom to go there tomorrow. She told me to take her to it right away. Then we ran to the place. When we got there my mom started to cry. "Vroom!" "We have to get out of here, Mum. The machines are coming! Run". About six days later there were 2619 acres cut down. by Kathryn Lenard Grade4

It was a warm day in September. Everyone was rejoicing for there was no winter or fall. Only one person was not rejoicing. It was the evil witch that lived on the top

of the mountain. She was feared by all and at this very moment she was thinking of an evil plan. She was going to make it winter all the time. She called her servant. She wanted the servant to find her a special herb. It was her last ingredient. But the servant brought back the wrong herb. The witch did not realize this when she made her potion. It started to snow. The witch did not have any warm clothes so she froze to death but the people in the village did have warm clothes. They were warm and happy. by Sara Quattro Grade4

THE UGLY DAY The sky is like a greyish, foggy cover today. It makes everything look so sad and droopy. When I walk down the street I get the chills from the splashing sounds of the cars driving in big deep puddles, and the trees that look so bare and short. This kind of weather makes me want to go home, curl up into a ball and go to sleep for the rest of this ugly day. by Samara Abrams Grade6

THE PLACE I LIKE TO BE

I gingerly placed my foot in, not knowing what it would feel like. It was soothing, yet cold. I went deeper and farther. I was so very relaxed; the cold just seemed to have disappeared and warmth was spreading across me. The sun gleamed off of it and it made the whole sky sparkle. The waves rippled softly by me and walked quietly onto the shore. It was as clear as glass that had just been polished. I could see the bottom as if it were right in front of me. I took another step and the bottom was as soft as clouds; I had such a pleasant feeling as there was nothing at the bottom; not even a shell or rock. It was all so peaceful with the sun sparkling and the sand smooth and glowing, birds flying around but not making a sound. The beach was so beautiful. by Ruth Dorfman Grade6

SCHOOL DAY I come to school early in the morning, At 8:30 every day. When class starts I learn and listen And when the morning's done I play. Then classes begin again And then I start to ponder. But before you know it. School is done!

RACE FINALS

By Noah Cohen Grade 6B

She gasped and panted; only a few simple steps stood between her and the finish of the dog race finals. Sweat poured down her face and neck. Nothing could ruin this moment; nothing. She flew through the air like a bullet. Her soft brown fur was damp, her eyes deepened. She was lifting four paws of lead. She leapt into the air and collapsed; it was over. She had finished. The thin, pale brown Doberman drank, gasped and wheezed. Two arms came towards her and placed a gold medal around her neck. The race was over; the pressure gone. by Hilary Howes Grade6


BEDTIME As I try to sleep in my bedroom, I stare in the corner at the broom. I think that is what I'll use to defend myself, Against the humongous teeth and mouth. For when I sleep thoughts go through my head, About the evil monster under the bed. The teeth, the jaws, The scales, the claws, That he will use to tear me apart. I will poke and jab, with broom in hand, And put the monster under the bed, Dead. Then when I think the thoughts in my head, No longer will I dread, The teeth, the jaws, The scales, the claws, Of the monster under the bed.

1HE HORROR OF MY LIFE It all started in the summer of 1989. I was swimming in the pond near where I lived

when suddenly a giant hand came down out of nowhere and picked me up. This thing that had picked me up examined my legs then threw me back in the water. I immediately went to tell my family of the great dangers. When I arrived home none of my family was there. I went outside to see if I could find them, but they were not there. Suddenly a great fear ran through me. My family had been taken away by the giant and I was the only one left to save them. After a bite to eat, I set out to save my family. I waited outside the giant's house until nightfall; then I entered. I found my family lying beside the giant's stove; they were knocked out cold. They were to be tomorrow's breakfast; first they would be covered in butter and then fried. So I had to work fast! Being knocked out, they would have to be carried outside and woken up with some water. First I worked for what seemed forever to get my brother Jeremy out of the house. Mter getting him out, I immediately woke him up, so that he could help me get my father, Fred, out. My dad would, of course, be the heaviest and hardest to get out the door. Getting him out and waking him up was hard and it took the two of us a long time to get him out. As soon as we had him out, we woke him up. The sun's rays were now slightly in view. The giant would be getting up and going to work a little after sunrise. It was just sunrise when we had my mother, Fran; my brother, Jeremy; and my sister, Olga, outside and awake. Just as we woke up Olga, the giant got out of bed. The giant smiled as he saw us scurrying down the path toward home. Over the last two weeks of summer and the first week of fall, we observed the giant night and day. It was very like my family; it ate, drank and slept; so do we. After the first week of fall, it put all its belongings in one big container, slid into a big thing it called a car, and left. A month later, I was sitting on a lily pad. I dove in the water, caught a fish, went into my family's hibernation home, and I settled in for the winter. By Brooks Fallis GradeS

THE GOLDEN EAGLE As long dark hours passed my hunger craved. Each minute seemed like years. Each second seemed like weeks. 路"Any sign?" I said to myself over and over. "If only he (she) would come." I had been waiting for my guardian spirit for four days now. There was no sign or change except for the sun each morning and the moon each night. Every day seemed colder and colder. "Any sign?" I said to myself one last time, but no sign. Hard pellets started to drop on my head. Oh, no, hail! I started to move toward a tree but then I stopped myself. I had to stay where I was or my guardian spirit might come without me knowing. Each pellet was like a bolt of pain going through my whole entire body. Then it started hailing even harder until I couldn't even see the tree I was going to shelter under. I swirled around and around trying to find my way. Just then, I heard a high pitched eagle shriek, "Eeee!" Something swept down, then aimed right at me. I ducked. For a moment I forgot about the hail. I looked up. It was the biggest eagle I had ever seen. Its wings looked like gold. Then it struck me like a bolt of lightning. It was my guardian spirit! I called to it. It swooped at me again. This time I didn't duck. I stood still. Its claws clamped on to my clothes. It was taking me high up in the air away from the hail. It swooped down and landed on the ground just beside my camp. None of the other Woodland Indians would be awake to see this beautiful sight. I waved goodbye, then fluttering down from the sky came a gold eagle feather. "A present," I said out loud, then I waved goodbye again. by Lorna Bauer Grade6


UP AND DOWN My alarm went off. It was five o'clock, as I realized I would be skiing for the rest of the day. The thought of it made me more tired, but still I forced myself out of my warm, cozy bed. I packed up all the stuff I would be needing for the rest of the day, got dressed and made sure I was ready for that long winter bus ride. Before I knew it I was racing down those big white snow-covered hills with my long hair chasing freely after me. Up and down I went, all day, on those slow chair lifts and steep hills. Soon the day had come to an end, and we were travelling back to the big, boring city. Jennifer Kaye GradeS


TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF THE GAME Slowly we got off the security of our bus, into enemy territory. As we saw the land in front of us, it was impossible not to gape at the humongous territory we would be competing against. Our general tried to comfort us, but it was to no avail. After changing into our white battle uniforms, we walked onto the rubber floor . Instantly, we were awestruck by the size of our opponents. Warm-up was done in almost complete silence, as the importance of this game took its full affect on us. We were scared of our uncertain fate. Finally, the dock buzzed, the crowd that had gathered silenced, and we were ready to start the competition. During the conflict, many shots were fired, though few hit their mark. Halfway through this match, we only trailed by eight. Things started to change in the third quarter. We quickly equalled their score, but they then went on a scoring streak of their own. By the fourth, I was finally in the game. We were trailing by about three with just over two minutes left. We quickly got the first basket of two we needed to win, then the other team seemed to play in slow motion. By the time that they had finished their shot, there was thirty seconds left. We quickly fired the ball up the court. With about ten seconds left, a shot came to me. I soared twenty feet up in the air ...before missing. Luckily, someone wearing white grabbed the rebound ... and scored!! Well, I might not have won the game, but at least I tried. Jordan Goldblatt GradeS

AMPLIFIED PAIN The wind brushed his beard and toyed with his failing body as he plunged into the unfathomable depth. The yawning abyss rushed at him from side to side as he spun. His hand brushed against something hard. Suddenly his body battered against the ossified wall. His leg hit something hard, he heard a sharp crack. His hands went down instinctively and he landed on two hands and one leg; the other leg was wedged in a crevice above. He rolled over. His eyes rolled back; he was in shock. Half an hour passed and he started to regain consciousness, but he wished he hadn't because the pain hit him like a hammerblow. He cried out, only to increase the pain. He looked up to see his own blood spattered against the chasm wall. His leg was twisted in an unusual way. He figured out that he had broken his femur in four places and had a spiral fracture in his lower leg... Suddenly, the pain intensified as he had started a rock slide on the way down to this thin, fragile ledge. He glanced up with tears in his eyes and saw a large boulder balancing on the brink of another ledge. One movement would end his excruciatingly painful life. He kicked the wall with his good leg with all his might. by Sean Wylie Grade6


BASKETBALL Finally, after many early morning practices, the under 14 girls basketball team left 65 Sheldrake for the long awaited game at Appleby College. It was hard to separate the fear from excitement in me. The gym was humongous; it had six baskets, a mechanical score board, six or seven squash courts and to top it all off, they had bleachers, which were almost all filled with intimidating spectators for the home side, waiting for the game to begin. As we passed through the hall to get to the dressing rooms the smell of chlorine came from the glassed in sparkling, blue pool which stirred a bit of jealousy around the obvious wealth of their school. Soon we were out on the court warming up. The game began and the refs. blew their whistles to start the jump off. A roar of cheers came from behind us as Appleby scored the first basket. We were not behind for long as we got the rebound minutes later. From then on, the score was always in favour of our team. Sometimes it was a close score making our players resting on the bench shout out encouragement and urging the Y.M.S. players on. What a team! The passing, the dribbling, getting a basket - it was all great even though we forgot the water bottles. Pam got a nose bleed and I had to go on for her. The baskets kept coming and the team was really excited. Only a few seconds left of the game there was no way Appleby could catch up now, we had won! Hip, Hip, Hooray. Way to go Y.M.S.!!!

KAKAMONA Kakamona, the strongest Plain Indian, was hunting for small animals to eat when suddenly high winds picked up from the west and Kakamona was pulled upwards. Kakamona could feel his arms ripping and his legs twisting and he could feel his head spinning so fast he only saw blurs. The other Plains Indians tried to go to his aid but it was too late. Kakamona was out of reach. Luckily all the Indians secured themselves. The Plains Indians heard a loud thud. Kakamona came crashing down to the ground. When the Medicine Man had checked him over he said he had three broken ribs and a mangled arm and leg. "He shall recover soon, but you must pray to the Guardian Spirit to make Kakamona live." So from then on Kakamona became chief and everyone believed he was a spirit so they gave him a special name, "Spirit of the Winds" to represent how powerful he was and to represent that people can live through hurricanes. by Jordon Philip Grade6


LIFE GOES ON I woke up early that morning wanting to go hunting. I put on my parka and my seal-skin boots, grabbed my weapons and climbed into my parents' igloo. I was surprised when I heard my mother and my brother Keenoo, crying. I ran towards their sleeping skins and then it hit me. My father was gone. I immediately tried to comfort my mother and brother. My mother lifted her head. She spoke softly saying, "Pappa did not come home last night. They found him frozen in the ice this morning." I rushed out of the igloo. Tears rushed down my cheeks. One by one they dropped on the ground and froze. My mother pleaded with me, "Immalka, lmmalka please come into the igloo. We will cry together." "There's no point," I screamed. "He's gone!" I started walking. I picked up my pace. I was running now. I heard my mother's cries wanting me to come back to the igloo. I ran for hours not looking back. Then I just stopped, broke down and cried. I decided I was going to go hunting. That's what I wanted to do and that's what I was going to do. I let all my anger out by spearing two caribou and three owlets. Suddenly I felt a shiver down my spine and water dripping down my cheeks. It was snowing. Slowly I started walking back to the igloo. When I got back all the tears were gone. No one was crying. It was as if the pain just vanished. Sure I was upset but we'll just have to survive without my father. We learned from myths that life goes on. That night we had a great feast of owlet and caribou stew. by Callaie N aftolin Grade 6


LAUREN'S RACE As she swam ahead of the rest with her beautiful swift strokes everyone cheered her on. Two more laps to go thought Lauren as she passed the halfway line. If she won this race she would be the champion of the city swim finals. As someone swam ahead of her she thought for sure she would lose! Lauren's strokes were getting sloppy and slow because her head was off in the clouds. She fired her strokes and pulled ahead. Lauren made a wonderful kickturn and sped gracefully to the half way line. Someone had got ahead of her, but Lauren passed and won the race. When Lauren got out of the pool there were cheers of happiness and joy. Lauren was so dizzy from swimming that long race she sat down and noticed that there were people still swimming the race as she was handed her first place trophy; it was her race and her trophy! by Samara Abrams Grade 6

SCHOOL S is for students that get piled with books C is for curriculum which we get a lot of His for homework, homework and homework 0 is for oxfords that need to be clean 0 is for occupied which you always are L is for lunch when everybody is hungry! by Abbie Scheffold Grade6 TRIGGER Galloping, galloping through the sky Dreaming of days when horses could fly Under the clouds over the rain Holding onto Zepplin's gold mane Feeling the wind blow through my hair Comfortable on my palomino mare Once a day I take her out of the stall Out to a place without a wall Warmth of the sun, cool of the breeze Quiet enough to hear her every wheeze Take off the tack, back to her stall Now it's time to go, good-bye all. By Sarah Dimick Grade7


WHAT A GREAT LIFE! Wooosh! I had just run the last familiar inches of beige and grey floor. My body was still quivering and nose still twitching even though I was now in my cozy little home under the hot beige thing the humans call a radiator. Whenever I see the huge pests I get so scared and so horrified of their unfamiliar faces all I can see are big blurs of red, brown, black, green and all the different colours of their garments and faces. But my cowardly personality will never stop me from bringing food from the Locker-Plus Supermarket. There are buns and cheese and vegetables all for grabs. On weekends I'm free of all the little humans talking and running around. We mice are much more civilized; we scurry without making a sound and are much better at hiding. During the nights we can have dinner on the computer tables and see the view. Being a mouse is such a great life! By Hilary Howes Grade 6

ON THE RUN

It's a chaotic day with many commands Amidst the confusion someone demands, When the pizzaman comes, who's going to pay? And then in the background, "What did you say?" In the grade five classroom, you're glad to be done They'll call you servant, just for fun

Pizza, napkins, creamsicles and more All this will keep you busy in grade four The three's beg for pizza, waving their hands in the air The thought of getting sick is discarded without a care "C an I?" . , ''May I?" . , ''PIease" . . .M ore, more, more

With the level two's you never know what's in store The cutest sweetest kids are of course the one's Their requests are guaranteed to keep you on the run. Clean-up begins to make everything neat When it's all over you can finally take a seat You're so exhausted and stuffed you could die But instead, overcome with relief, you let out a sigh.

THE MISERABLE MORNING Tuesday, the second worst day of the week. Six-thirty A.M., or is it? I firmly believe that my parents wake me up at five because it takes about one and a half hours to separate me from my bed, even with the hacksaw and crowbar. It's very hard for me to get up in the morning. After eating my breakfast I finally woke up, only to realize that I had missed the bus! Time for the early morning car chase. I hop in the car with my dad and we begin our pursuit for the bus. There it is about four blocks ahead. We drive up behind it and I prepare to get out and get on but it leaves the stop. Back in the car. My dad successfully cuts off the angry bus driver and I get on the bus. "Student card please," demands the driver in a monosyllabic tone. I fish into my pocket and feel very sick. Where is it? I pretend to look in all my pockets and in my backpack for it with urgency but I know exactly where it is. In my other pair of pants, in my wallet, in the wash! "Student card please," he repeats. "I don't have it." ''Three more tickets please." A funny sound comes from deep in my throat. No worry, it's my stop. I run back to the doors and leap off. I hear the driver's shouts from inside the bus, but I'm already late. I have to hurry to get to basketball practice. I run as fast as I can, gracefully dodging a garbage truck as I speed through a red light. Everything is blurred with speed; I barely miss stepping on a Chihuahua. Then I see it, the church. Finally, finally I make it. I slowly walk towards the door, and then into a very empty looking gym. Mr Ginis looks at me with a puzzled look. ''No practice today," he says. I faint. What a miserable morning. Matthew Blades GradeS


DIAGONAL LINES During the early years of my life I was not exactly what one would call a neat child. Most of the time I 路had my shirt hanging out or one of my shoelaces undone, but one thing that consistently occurred was that my hair was always路in my eyes. My mother, being very neat and tidy herself, was always obsessed with having immaculate children. She always had her hair nicely done and wanted the same for my older sister and me. Being young, my sister and I couldn't have cared less how our hair looked and could never seem to understand why our mother would chase us around the house screaming, with a brush in one hand and an elastic or a hairpin of some sort in the other. One day, which I can still remember as if it were yesterday, my mother walked into the kitchen, looked at me and began to tell me how bad it was for me to have my hair in my face. I was absorbed in the television show I was watching and as usual, I was not paying attention at all to what it was that she was rambling on about. The next thing I knew I was in the bathroom, and she was kneeling in front of me holding a pair of scissors in my face. After a few snips she announced, with a slight look of remorse on her face, that she was done. I looked in the mirror and was speechless. My bangs had been cut off on a severe diagonal line and looked positively horrible. Once I realized that I was stuck with this disaster until my hair grew back, I began to cry. Mom tried to comfort me, but she knew that there was nothing she could do; she had already done enough! After this, my mother still hadn't learned her lesson and thought she would get better with practice. This is why whenever she mentioned the word "bangs", my sister and I would run away with fear. Mter a while she gave up and began to send us to a professional hairdresser. This was much better, but her new obsession was giving us ridiculous hair styles that she thought were adorable. By Celine Kagan GradeS


SKI DAY After three long hours on the bus We stopped suddenly and all of us Put on our ski boots and went out for our skis. We rode up the lift and went down the hill with ease. One hour flew by and the lesson had ended We went up the lift again and had intended To go down every hill on this mountain and then we went in for a drink at the fountain. We had lunch and then skied some more Soon the hills became a bore But at 3 o'clock we had to go Oh Great! I thought, as I sat on the tow I looked at my watch and skied as fast as I could. I had a great time like I knew I would. By Rachel Manning GradeS

CANADA FITNESS "Everybody go get changed," he said with a shout And everyone began to pout. ''Today we do the Canada fitness test and if we don't finish, tomorrow we'll do the rest." We all went to change our clothes and how we did, no one knows. Next we went upstairs to start, We were all anxious to depart. Push ups, sit ups, jumping and running too Everyone knew exactly what to do. Forty minutes later the torture ended It took a few days before our bodies mended. Celine Kagan GradeS

MISSION MEOW The warm tabby cat walks into the room just looking for a person to spoil him with cuddling. He tracks down his suspect and skips over to her with an innocent face. He sits beside her; the suspect gives in and strokes him. A half hour later the cat strikes again. His innocent face means the next victim can't resist stroking him. A little later the parent comes home. Instead of showing his innocence, this time he meows for his food. This is the only person to meow at. This is his life and he enjoys it! He will do this until he dies. It is like a mission that he has to complete. by Abbie Scheffold Grade 6 EXAMS!

SCARED STUPID

Jim was the strongest and most sturdy for a fight at recess. He always picked a fight on the smooth pavement part of our playground. Right at this very exact moment he was trying to pick a fight with another innocent child. I was sweating, my heart w as thumping, I was turning red. Then all of a sudden I fell. I looked slowly behind me and couldn't see anything. I thought hard; it came to me that my legs let go. I couldn't believe what happened. I never had been this scared in all my life. I tried to get up; I couldn't but I knew I had to. "Brian, could you get me a cup of coffee?" said Miss Webb. "Yes," I called back to her. I was so relieved that I wouldn't have to fight. I ran upstairs to the staffroom to get Miss Webb her coffee. by Evan Minsky Grade6


A CAT'S PAW My dad and I had just moved from the city to the country. giving birth to a baby. The baby died too. Now it was moved to a little cottage by a pond just off a little town townspeople said some weird stuff had been happening was not superstitious.

My mother had just died only my Dad and I. We called Humberville. The over there but my father

One evening a young lady came rowing across the pond. When my dad ran out to greet her she said her name was Mary. She had dark green eyes and she said she lived at the other side of the pond, but the day before last I had rowed over to the other side of the pond and there was nothing but a field. Every time she came over I ran to my room. I didn't feel comfortable even on the same floor as her. One night I couldn't sleep because there was a large grey cat with green eyes, and huge claws sitting on the edge of my bed. I was afraid if I went to sleep it would claw me to death. Night after night this happened. I told my father but he didn't believe me. I also told him the cat looked a little like Mary as it had dark green eyes. That night when my father came to tuck me in he saw the cat too. He chased it out of the house and down near the pond. The cat ran across the water and my father rowed after it. In the morning I found my father dead on the shore with a grey eat's paw red with blood in his hand. At the funeral Mary came but on her right arm there was no hand. by Lorna Bauer Grade6

THE YOUNG MUSICIAN With a wonderful, quick grace her tiny hands swept across the keyboard of the antique piano. Her eyes swiftly read each note with intense care. She produced crisp, clean sounds that rang out in the old Victorian room and seemed to make the house come alive. The music had a mysterious enchantment which lured the onlookers to the room. Not able to contain themselves, Laura's parents, brother and sister broke into a dance to the music she made. She ended the song with a resounding note which filled the room with silence. by Lucy Blades Grade6


DEATH Sean, Carol and I slowly walked away from the little reception. The funeral had been very depressing. I thought about how she died. She was too young, merely 12 years old. The car had been moving with great speed, I remembered. I broke down in sobs. I had watched her die; unable to help her. We watched the mother. She had a look on her face that said she was clearly pained about the death of her daughter. Suddenly I relived that moment; her scream. She had given a desperate look at me just as the car ran into her. She was my best friend. Kate and I had been friends for ever. Now, she was dead. Again I was sobbing. Carol and Sean weren't as close to her, but they were still upset. It seemed like she could never die, but she did. I finally reached home. I ran up to my room and cried. I fingered the necklace on my neck. It said, "Friends forever." Kate had given it to me. by Sarah Brawley, Grade6 PHYS.ED. I watched judo and wrestling. Geoff and Ben went down on the mat. Cleo flipped Geoff. He was embarrassed. I thought it was great. Angela Radford GradeS

MARLEY LIVES

The door swung open. In walked Marley. Bob Marley had died several years ago. When he died he had of course left everything behind. He was a ghost and a spirit. He had now received the privilege of coming to see his old house. He was disappointed to see it had been torn down. He had been waiting for this moment for a long time. The area was covered with dark soil all in clumps. Because some big towering building was going to be built all the big strong heavy-duty equipment was sitting silently waiting for morning. Marley decided to walk back into heaven through the long, dark night. by Karli Gump Grade6


THE OLD WAGON As the old wagon bumped along the rough, bumpy road, I watched the golden wheat sway in the gentle wind, I was jolted out of my trance as two small children ran by with a large colourful kite trailing after them, high in the clouds. The wagon slowed as we neared a rippling blue stream, running through a small group of trees that formed an arch above us. The horses walked up to the glittering stream, and ate a patch of grass nearby. Patches of sunlight streamed through the large trees, breaks in the arch shows the crisp blue sky. Squirrels and chipmunks glanced disinterestedly at us across the stream as we started back on the dirt road. Krista Khasnabish GradeS

SKI DAY

We woke up early, at 6 o'clock Would we be late? I think not. We were going to Blue Mountain To ski for the day. We had to dress warmly, for it wasn't May. We had lessons in the morning from 10 to 11 The afternoon was free, what sheer heaven. Going up the chair lifts, right to the top It was great fun we didn't ever want to stop. Skiing down those icy hills Some people fell and got the chills On the bus ride coming back Energy was what we did lack. Cleo Haber GradeS

HOT PEPPERS They couldn't resist it any longer; they had to have them. After all there was a bush hanging out of the fence. Those juicy peppers were hard to resist so they grabbed them. They took the first bite; their mouths were on fire. Smoke was coming out of their ears. There was one little problem; actually a big problem. Those were the janitor's peppers and all of us were in the Y.M.S. school yard. One terrible thing happened after another. Both girls rubbed their eyes. Soon they were burning; they couldn't stand it. It was terrible. Their eyes were all red and swollen; chemicals on the peppers made it worse. There are two morals to this story. Never steal someone's peppers; never steal anything. Secondly, when you eat hot peppers never, I mean never, rub your eyes! by Callaie N aftolin Grade6

X-Countrq Running CROSS COUNTRY!

The two kilometre Appleby run was a killer. I was at the starting line and everyone around me was all ears for the whistle. My heart was beating faster than a horse's gallop. My palms were full of perspiration and my legs felt like clay. Then it happened; a sudden shock hit my body and spread like lightning. I saw Lucy in the distance and Ruth was just in front of me. I hated the beginnings of races; I always have and as far as I know I always will. Frost pierced my legs :1s I ran. The light of the sun beat down but there was no heat. By this point parents and other students were on either side of me cheering us on. My heartbeat was booming through my ear drums and I almost couldn't breathe. After a while when the race was finished I was back on my feet. I was glad it was over. Although I had some rough times that race was the best one I had ever had. by Hilary Howes Grade6


THE BIG RUN

It was the last practice for the Y.M.S. cross country team before the biggest final run. The team was all worked up and was praying that they would do welL Especially Lucy Blades. Lucy often complained about cramps and sometimes did not pace herself very well. The team was running their usual route in the woods at Sherwood Park. Lucy was very tired. She had not arrived at practice in time to warm up, and having had a light snack beforehand it gave her a cramp. Lucy was on her last lap around the woods. It had been thirty minutes since they had started but to Lucy it seemed like hours. With her legs feeling like clay, she collapsed in front of the water fountain with a sigh of relief that it was ovel. She closed her weary eyes. The final run was not far away. Two days after the last practice Lucy climbed onto the big yellow school bus thut took them to Sunnybrook park for the big run. Butterflies fluttered in her stomach and sweat dripped down the sides of her head like tiny raindrops. Her breathing was heavy and twice people asked her if she was all right. She wanted to say no, but she knew she would get over it and she didn't want tole~ !he team down. After about five minutes of a bumpy bus ride the team got off th~? bus. They were there. Lucy immediately began to warm up properly; she didn't want to risk getting a cramp. Soon a man with a deep but friendly voice announced through a megaphone that the race for under twelve boys and girls was about to begin; Lucy was in that race. Her stomach bounced around inside her and she slowJy walked to the starting line. Blood was rushing rapidly through her veins, and her H1.1.gertips went ice cold. For a moment her eyes blurred; she rubbed them until she could see clearly again. A woman was standing in front of them with a gun carefully positioned in the air. Lucy just stood there waiting impatiently for those three words, "On yom marks, get set, bang!" The gun had been shot and the runners were off. Lucy was in the lead. It was a twisting race with lots of turns and she fell behind a bit. Occasionally she closed her eyes with fatigue. Five girls passed her and she knew she could not gain her position of first back again. Lucy turned into the finish line puffing with exhaustion and feeling a little bit faint. She came in right behind five other girls. She felt good even though she 路was not first. The awards were given out after coke and cookies from her coaches, Mrs. Lister and Mrs. Gianotti. Lucy went home happily knowing she had tried and had had a good season. by Lucy Blades Grade6


THE FABULOUS CROSS-COUNTRY FABLE I ran and ran as fast as I could, To where the juice and donuts stood. Dead last was my placing, But "A" for effort is what I got for racing. All the school and teachers cheered very loud, We could hear them yelling in the crowd. All of the runners were proud, As they crossed the finish line and bowed. If you don't believe-t!his story is true, Ask Miss Charron; she saw it too. Brooks Fallis Grade 8.)

X-COUNTRY I could hear only Reuben making strange noises. The rest of my concentration was on the race ahead. Would I place well? Would I come in first? Would I come in last? As these questions raced through my head like busy honey bees I noticed that the car had stopped. We were there. I felt a tingling sensation in my legs as if they were ready to get it over .with but I calmed myself when I remembered the walkthrough. The walk-through was so painfully slow that I will not write about it. I used the time after to stretch farther than I usually do. The line was scrunched up but that did not matter. The gun went off and I let out a half snarl, half battle cry and was off like a rocket. My legs pounded like steel pistons. I felt the familiar feel of racing and was soothed and relaxed by wind glancing off my face. The familiar feel of dirt shifting underneath my feet calmed me. Suddenly a foot caught my ankle. I went sprawling into the bushes. I heard the snicker of a Crescent boy. Luckily the only thing broken was my clothes salesman's heart. I stood up and passed the kid who had tripped me. He tried to trip me again, but I jumped aside and sprinted away. Then I fell across the finish line. They took my tag. I was roused to the sound of munching. I dragged myself over to the table and allowed myself to have some refreshments; then I collapsed. by Sean Wylie Grade6


THEBIGONE "On your mark, get set, Go!" The whole pack of people ran by like a herd of elephants. There were people standing all along the side cheering to support their teams. It was a long race, and I wasn't looking forward to it. It was the final cross country meet at Sunnybrook Park. I was very nervous but I wanted to run well; to the best of my ability. Chiara and I were running together. We started to get tired and slow down a bit. My legs felt like they were filled with lead. Everybody's face was bright red and a lot of people were walking because of exhaustion. Chiara and I started to pass many people as the race continued. It was a hot day, and were we were sweating. My mouth was as dry as desert sand and I did not have any saliva. Huffing and puffing the race went on. I didn't think I could finish the race, but then I saw the finish line. I couldn't believe that I was almost done. I started to speed up as we were about to finish. I sprinted to the end! I was done! Chiara and I both fell on the ground, panting and gasping for air. We were both very tired. I was relieved; the cross country meet was over. I did not think I could finish the race but I did. by Ruth Dorfman Grade6


THE RACE Tt was thP micidle of the race at Elora Gorge. Can J make it? My legs felt like j!.'lln. Come on legs, move! It was like trying to lift anchors off the bFTound. Tlw whole pack of people ran by. Al1 of us panting, puffing, wheezing, coughing and gasping. Oh, the agony. The sweat ran down my nose and I let out a gasp . Nnw we were in the woods. I felt scared. "Come on," I thought !ll':-i{H'I'HteJy.

X-COUNTRY

The heat haze slithered across the enormous football field. "Wow," exclaimed Brooks, "I wish we had these at our schooL" I nodded and agreed completely. Those football fields would be great. We headed through the last stretch of the walk-through, the forest. Roots stuck out of the ground, as if inviting me to fall off the cliff they were beside. We were soon back to the ending stretch. Many thoughts raced through my mind as I lined up at the start. Would I win? Would I come in last? Would I trip? These thoughts were rudely cut off by the ~tarter . "Runners, take your marks." "Set." "BANG!" We were off. The race had finally started. When it was over, I lay down on the grass, panting. I wondered, ''Was all this torture of training and running worth it, just to get an Rth overall?" I thought so. Andrew Wylie Grade 8

Annalisa Camozzi Grade 8 On Halloween Night, I had a fright. Witches in the air, I had a scare. Scarecrows flying, I was dying. By Jonathan Marin Grade2


HALLOWEEN NIGHT On Halloween night I went trick or treating. It was dark when we left the house. I was a ghost, my brother Ian was a bat and my baby brother was a pirate. Ian and Kevin were excited. So was I. I had a UNICEF box. Ian and Kevin did not have UNICEF because there were not enough boxes. My dad came along with us and so did my girlfriend Lindsay. Lindsay also had a UNICEF box. I had loads and loads of candy and UNICEF money. When I got home, my bag felt like it weighed 9,496 kg. My UNICEF box wasn't too heavy. By Ryan Marthinsen Grade2


HALLOWEEN NIGHT Halloween Night is my favourite night because I go trick or treating and get candy. I could meet a new friend. I go out with my friends. I get excited about Halloween. I get my favourite chocolate bar. It is Oh Henry. It has nuts and lots of chocolate. My second favourite is Mars Bar. My third favourite is Snickers bars. My worst candy is lollipoos. I was happy that I went out with Kyle. He is my best friend. Kyle and I went ahead of the girls so we could get home first. We did! We snuck my sister's candy. I took an Oh H2nry. The girls were pushing us. I got mad i:Jecause they hurt Kyle. Samantha got mad at both of us. We were wondering if Kyle could have a sleep-over. The answer was no. I was sad! We were out for two hours but we still wanted to go out. We were sad that we couldn't. I said that maybe we could go two more streets. The answer was yes. Kyle and I were happy! We went down the hill. We got lots of candy and lollipops. It was almost time to go home. We went quickly. We were going to one more house then we went home. By Jonathan Marin Grade 2


HALLOWEEN POEMS

Orange Pumpkin In the Night, Bats In the light. By Ben Thorek Grade2


HALLOWEEN On Halloween Night you wear costumes and masks. If you do not have a mask, then you use stuff for your face like face paint. If you want to have a real Halloween, you need candy. How you get candy is by trick or treating. If you are hungry, you may want to have a snack before you leave the house. If you want it to be really scary, you will need a dark night. Maybe, to scare the people who are trick or treating, you could put a pumpkin or so on the porch.

Sometimes you have dinner before you go trid:: or treating, but some people eat after. Sometimes your outfit gets wrecked and falls apart. That happened to me last Halloween right in front of someone's house. I was so embarrassed. Sometimes a leaf falls into your mouth while you are saying trick or treat. That happened to me. Again I was very embarrassed. Maybe you would like to havt: a friend come with you. Some kids have Halloween parties, but I can not describe it because I have never been to one. At the end of it all, you go home and eat your candy in front of the television. If you get an orange, you must not eat it because the person who gave it might have a cold, or there might be something on the outside or the inside that would make you sick.

CHRISTMAS Red and green share the white As the snow falls all through the night. Giggling and laughing the children wait for Santa, the one and only to bring presents and gifts to put under the beautiful lit up tree. Then with a tremendous jump up and up he goes. Then a clunk upon the roof, the beautiful ringing bells, then it is silent. In the morning everyone is cheerful and happy to the scratching and ripping sound of presents. Then you know Santa has done well. by Tom Barrett Grade6 DEAR SANTA, For Christmas I would like a clock to run up when it strikes twelve and to run down when it strikes one. I am tired of borrowing other people's clocks. Love, The Mouse from Hickory, Dickory Dock By Hilary Bauer Grade 2


GIBSON HOUSE MEMORIES It was Christmas Eve morning and the Gibson family has just awoken. They were

beginning to prepare for tomorrow which was to be Christmas Day. Pete helped his Dad. David Gibson cut leaves from trees and Elizabeth and Margaret tied them with red ribbons to remind them of holly. Elizabeth, David Gibson's wife, started baking good treats to eat; shortbread, cookies and fruit cakes which they called Black Bun. Elizabeth would also make apple cider. The next morning was Christmas and all the children ran quickly down the stairs. Elizabeth was the first there and she received a china doll; she loved it. James got ice skates, William a board game and Peter's present was a wooden man that danced when you pulled a button. Margaret had a spinning top, George and Mary a picture book each. They were all very happy with their presents. A Christmas back in those days was not a big thing but they all liked their Christmas just the same. by Jordon Philip Grade 6

CHRISTMAS POEM

CHRISTMAS POEM

Mother cooks -- the smell's delicious All the children are ambitious. Father chops the evergreen down To put the presents all around. I hear the sleighbells, oh so sweet. I make some cookies-- great to eat. I cannot wait for Christmas day. Hip, hip, hip, hurray!

Christmas, Christmas, Christmas, light Shining bright through Christmas night. See the children sleeping down below As Santa sees them, he says, "ho, ho, ho!" Way below the sky above ' Stockings get hung As carols get sung.

REMEMBRANCE DAY Yesterday was Remembrance Day.

IlL FALL COLOUR Once upon a time there was a woman named Elizabeth and she had a baby. This baby was not like normal babies. She was very colourful. She had long bright red hair, orange skin and a yellow mark on her left arm. She was so colourful that she was named Colorine. As the years went by she became more and more colourful. Zeus, the King of the Gods, was wondering if they should have a new god. A god of colour to make sure the world never turned grey. He called a meeting of the gods. They decided to create a new god. On November first, Colorine was called up to the heavens. She got right to work. Every night Colorine set her alarm to 7:30 a.m. This was when she had to re-charge her colour. If she did not, then the world would turn grey. One night there was a thunder storm and the power went out. Colorine woke up at 9:00 a.m. "Oh, no!" she cried. "The world is grey! " Meanwhile Zeus had discovered the same thing. He called a meeting of the gods. They wanted to punish Colorine. Cupid decided that every fall Colorine would have to give all her colour to the trees. The gods decided that was a good punishment. That is why the leaves change colour in the fall. by Justine Connelly Grade4


CHANUKAH I walked by and saw lights flashing in the night. I could see the shadow of the candles on the snow. I could smell a delicious smell of potato and oil. My taste buds watered. I saw families sitting at their table laughing and having fun. I could hear songs in the distance. Oh, it looked like fun! As I saw all those families having fun and laughing the cold and the bitterness of being outside alone seemed to just go away. I imagined that I was inside with them with the candles flaring, eating, playing games, telling stories and having fun. It seemed that every year, around this time, every family on my block had candles in their windows and was enjoying themselves. Maybe because it is December and winter is approaching, or, because it is the first day of Chanukah! by Ruth Dorfman Grade 6


COLD AND SCARED DON'T MIX! We were on the chairlift when I felt cold; my fingers felt like icicles. I put my mini heaters in my gloves but that did nothing considering one of them was frozen just like I was. A gust of cold wind blew against my face. The seat which I was sitting on was covered in ice. It was now snowing hard. I thought it would never stop. "Oh, well," I thought to myself. After this run I'll ask my instructor if we could go into the chalet. Now I had to get off the lift. I put my goggles on but they were fogged up. I guessed I would have to risk going down the hill. I started off in a parallel standard. I couldn't see. I just made out a tree. I turned just in time to miss the pine tree on my left. Now the snow was really coming down. I had never been in such a snowstorm in my life. "Gulp, where is the group?" I asked myself. I should never have come today because I knew there would be a storm. I thought I had a glimpse of Brian's fluorescent yellow jacket. It was his! I was so glad. I yelled at the top of my lungs, "Let's go in!"

by Evan Minsky Grade6 SKI DAY The bus pulled up to the ski chalet And I felt like yelling hip-hip hooray! Waiting in the bus, With much excitement within us, For Mr Ginis To gave us our well-deserved tickets. I

Finally after waiting, We approached the hill and gave it A black diamond rating.

I slalomed down the hill, But I still didn't have my fill.

At the end of the day I was ready to hit the hay And I wish you all a good day! Karin Bestig GradeS

We went up the lift Peering down at the skiers that had a gift. When I was at the top of the hill, I peered down the slope with a chill.

THE MAGIC

~NOWMAN

There was a magic snowman. It was really magic. A girl made it. The snowman was real. He went to the jungle, but it was too hot. So he went back. "I ci.~n'r know where I should go!" yelled the snowman. Then he went to the desert. "It is too hot. I can't find anywhere to go!" Then he had an idea. "I i-:r.ow," he said. "I will go back to the girl." Her name is Jenna and she is ft.:.my. By 3oe Paliare Grade 1

WINTER Snowflakes drop on my head, All the children frolic in the snow. I sing a merry tune out loud So the whole world can hear. Icy daggers hang from buildings. The ~hildren try to catch flakes on their tongues. 路 Jolly snowman on almost every lawn, With button eyes and a carrot nose. Roof tops are covered in white blankets. Smoke is ballooning from the chimneys. This is my favourite time of year! by Sarah Brawley, Grade6


FIRST SNOWFALL Snow falls like a feather, white as a cloud. As it falls it is silent. Trees and flowers pack away for winter. People play, what a delight. My friend and your friend; as we all shout the sound is muffled. The grass and the plants quiver and shake like a man in a cool bath tub freezing to death. The chills of the winter are arriving and pushing the summer away. Hal Hal Hal The winter has come. Winds blow and snow falls; very cold days all pass away for summer to come again. by Tom Barrett Grade6

SKI DAY

This was the first one, In three whole years,

That hadn't been cancelled, Because of weather fears. We all gathered equipment, And went on our way, Bound for Blue Mountain, We couldn't be phased. Everyone was tired, It was just 7:00. We couldn't wait to get skiing, Whether we stayed warm or not. We finally got there, And split up for lessons. At 11:00, We had free skiing, heaven! The hills were a bit icy, But the snow was still good, A few people fell, But didn't give up. We loaded the bus At 3:00. After a fun day of skiing, Into our beds we would flop. Pamela Royce GradeS

WINTER STRUGGLE The temperature was unbearable, especially the wind that circled around his head and froze every piece of exposed skin on his body. He greatly regretted not wearing his scarf as his mother had advised, for the cold chilled his face and sent a shiver down his spine. The walk to the store seemed longer than ever because the wind held him back and kept him from progressing on his journey. His feet barely broke the surface of the snow, and the tears in his eyes from the wind froze on his face like tiny icicles. Images of blazing fires and hot soup and bread loomed in the back of John's mind making him miserable, but yet giving him the strength to push on. The snow blew all around him making the store in the distance hardly visible. He touched his hair with his mittened hands and knew that it had frozen by the feeling of it crunching in his hands. The howling of the wind was frightening and seemed exaggerated, yet real. Soon he reached the store and felt the warmth of the heating against his face; finally he was there. by Lucy Blades, Grade6

Basketball


THE FIRST GAME

The day and night before my first basketball game I was shaking. I was not cold; I was nervous! I was sitting on my couch wondering what it would be like; fun was all I could think about. At the end of the next day when it was time to leave I was calm; I was not nervous. But as soon as I stepped into Havergal College I compared how little I was shaking before to how much I was shaking then. The game began and I was on the bench. I saw how big Havergal's gym was and how tall and amazing Havergal's team was, but I never doubted for a moment. I knew we were going to do well. When I was subbed in the score was six to three for Havergal. At the end of the first half the score was eighteen to seven for Havergal. I thought if only we could get ten more baskets. In the second half we did very well; I caught the ball and got a breakaway down Havergal's long court. But when I was passing, someone from Havergal stole the ball and did not get a basket but was very close to it. When there were two seconds left, the score was eighteen to seventeen for Havergal. Hilary caught the ball but then headed to the wrong net. One second left. Hilary threw the ball to the net and she missed! We still lost eighteen to seventeen, but it was fun just like I had thought it would be! by Samara Abrams Grade6

GO FOR BASKETBALL

If you try out for the basketball team you have to get up at 7:00 to get to the 7:30

practices, but there are lots of benefits to getting up that early because you get to know some of the grade 6, 7, and 8's and Mr. Ginis. You have fun and you also get to learn skills like shooting, dribbling, layups, how to pivot and much more! You feel very good after practices and ready to play one on one with Michael Jordan! So the next time you get a chance to play ball, don't think about it, just do it! by Chris Jenkins GradeS

t'


ANTICIPATION AND SUSPENSE Practicing many mornings at the crack of dawn, Preparing for our games so nothing would go wrong. Dribbling the ball down the court Making passes, both long and short. Dressed in red, white and green We got another basket, what a team! Two points ahead, two points behind Nervous thoughts race through our minds. Waiting our turn, sitting on the bench Full of anticipation and suspense For our first year, we're doing great Climbing to the top at a very fast rate! Two more seconds left in the game, it looks like we'll She takes the last shot, and it rolls in. We've won the game and we're so proud, Listening to the victory cheers from the crowd. Jessica Haber and Emma Kassirer Grade 8


The clock was running down in the third quarter. We were playing with a short bench of seven against St. George's College. I was on the bench because I already had four fouls and 15 points. Matt fouled out and I went in, then Ben (the mouth) Mandell fouled out and Dave went in with 4 fouls. Things did not look good when Dave fouled out and we played with 4 players. We started disking the baskets and playing like a team even though we were playing shorthanded. The buzzer sounded and we lost by 8. I remained in the rest of the game without fouling out and ended up scoring 12 more. I liked playing short because it was more of a challenge. Geoff Mcintyre GradeS


r

BASKETBALL PRACTICE This morning at basketball practice Mr. Ginis started to prepare us for our big game on Thursday against Crescent. He made two teams and let us play a game. One moment they had the ball and then the next moment we had the ball. The shots scored, and the ball wa; always flying through the air. It wu nearing the end of the game. There was one r.~.inute left. They were winning 45 - 44. They had the ball; Dave drove to the net arl~. \LL:.r sed. I jumped up and grabbed the rebound. I quickly passed it away and ran fo_ ,.! c net. Five, four, three went the clock. Brooks threw the ball just to the right oi the net. I jumped up and grabbed it. Two, one!

WHO IS HOCKEY FOR?

Hockeq

Is it a game for the coaches, Or for the players? Do you play for your parents Or for yourself? Do you win for the money Or for yourself? Hockey, Hockey Who is the sport really for? By Mark Haber Grade 6 HOCKEY This is not a sport, This is eating the other team alive. For once it is not on a court. Crescent, York, U.C.C., I see! But if you just spectate it is fun, With all of the candy and beer. Crowds that actually cheer. And once in a while, You might get a smile Because you see, we had only lost by one. By Kevin Gilmour Grade 6B


HOCKEY PRACTICE All the players were nervous, including me. They all wanted to make the team. Some people were so nervous they were putting their shin guards on backwards, their socks upside down, their shoulder pads on backwards. They were also taping their sticks messily. When they were in the hallway going to the ice they were already sweating. Some people's skates were so loose they fell off. Some players even held their sticks backwards. Then in a split second the deafening sound of the whistle went. After we took on the goalie they all missed by a mile except for one and that went right at the goalie. And he let it in! There were short people, towering people, good players and bad players. It was an appalling practice and they made us work very hard. We played a scrimmage but no one wanted to play defence. Then the coach said, "Hey kid. Play defence or you will do a hundred knuckle pushups!" The kid was so scared he jumped out of his skates. He couldn't play defence for beans. The practice was finally over and the coaches came in to the dressing room and said the magic words ... "You all made the team!" There was a big sigh of relief. by Ian Sidey Grade6


THE LONG WAIT After practice we all quickly got changed and ran to the bus. But, unfortunately it wasn't there. We waited, and waited, and waited. Soon I had a beard on my face and cobwebs all over my body. I had lost all my hair. I then started digging my grave and when I was finished the bus came aronnd the corner. It was a miracle. It really came. I used my stick as a walking stick as we all got on the bus and drove away into the mist. by Tom Barrett Grade6

House Challenges

HOUSE HEAD My favourite part about being in grade eight was being house head of Johnson. I found this to be a great opportunity for many reasons. One of them was it gave me a chance to get to know the students in the younger grades, get to know them and become friends with them. It also gave me the opportunity to work along with the teachers and plan different activities for the school. This was a big responsibility but was also lots of fun at the same time. It gave me the chance to gain leadership skills and exercise good sportsmanship. This has been one of the most meaningful things that has happened to me at Y.M.S. and the main thing I will remember after I have graduated. Celine Kagan GradeS

BASEBALL Bat American Sensational Exciting Bunt Amazing Line drive Long oall By Jared Lambert Grade7


THE SITE We drove slowly down the meandering road, trees on either side forming a tunnel. Above us the forest shades us from the sun like a shield and when we finally reached the end of the road, the light startled us. The clearing in the woods was where we would stay, beside the turbulent water of the river. We set our tent in the shade of a large evergreen which would protect us from the sun. Once our shelter was ready, we headed for the small ribbon of beach. There the river squeezed between rocks and forced its way out to the calm waters where it rested beside the beach before it would meet more rocks and carve its way through them. We walked up the river's edge, to where the water bumped clumsily into rocks and flew off in random directions. Sometimes the water would seethe as though it were boiling and sometimes it would plunge under rocks and hide. Sometimes it swirled like it couldn't make up its mind which way to go, other times it just flowed as if it was moving too rapidly to decide what it wanted to do. Night fell and the white water of the river no longer reflected light or seemed to pick its way through rocks. Now the water seemed ominous and sped past us angrily, dangerously close to where we stood. So we walked to the beach and back to our warm tent under the sheltering boughs of the tree.

MOUNTAINS She stood at the summit of the mountain, a sudden gust of wind blew her hair back from her face. She squinted to get a clearer look at a small object soaring up above. As she followed the hawk with her eyes, she took a small cautious step forward, making sure the rough ground was secure. Sharp, jagged rocks jutted out in unexpected places. Small rodents dove for cover as she walked farther on. The girl took a sharp breath in as she stood on the edge of the mountain and she knew, as she watched the ball of fire descend into the nearby mountains, that life wouldn't get any better than this.

Track and Field I was running around the track, only half way through my first lap but I wanted to go back to my bed. I could see the early morning sun just rising and the newly fallen dew spread across the grass in the middle of the track. Finally I had finished my first lap, but my bones were aching because I had been late and didn't get to do the warmups. One more lap to go, then I cm:.:.ld stand still for at least five seconds without a teacher saying, "On your marks, get set, go!" Done! I had done my first two warmup laps, but then I had to head over to the 100 m sprint where I ended up racing against Ruth and Ashley which was hard to do. After many times running the 100 路m sprint we walked around the track once which was a dream come true to not have to run around; then we jogged around the track which I did at a turtle's pace because I was so tired. We then set out to walk back to school carrying our instruments, gym bags and knapsacks which were filled with binders, duotangs and books. On the way my hands got so cold that I seriously thought they were going to fall off from too much frost bite, but luckily it was only my imagination. When I arrived back at school I ate breakfast and started the day. by Karli Gump Grade6

Today Nick and I tried out for track. It was awesome! Nick and I are going to do the 50 m dash, 100m dash, and the running long jump. In my opinion I think track is fun to do, even though we have to wake up early in

the morning. The breakfast they give us is wonderful! They give us bagels with anything you want on them. The orange juice is great! I tell you it's worth waking up to go to track. Besides it's good for your health! by Kenneth Low GradeS

You get up at 6:30. Track starts at 7:00 and goes to 7:40. When you get there you run around the track twice. The cold air feels good on your face. I like long jump the most.

THE TRANSITION The drive up to the cottage seemed so long, as we were all excited to get there. When we finally arrived we jumped from the car and ran to the quaint white building. The roof was lined with a black eaves tro~gh and the windows had black shutters. When we opened the door we could see right through to the lake. It was a slightly windy day and the lake was rippling. The grass was moist and green and it grew at a steady pace. The garden was blooming with the colours of the rainbow and the trees were full of lush green leaves. The smell in the air was fresh and natural like water from a spring, I could hardly wait to jump in the lake. This whole sight made me change from the city person I was into the laid back person from the country. 13y Cleo Haber ..路ade8

Way up in the sky there is a forest full of rain. This little forest of rain was going through a lot of pain. Its confidence had to regain, To tell the government off again.

I WILL NEVER SEE A POEM A LOVELY AS A TREE I will never see a poem As lovely as a tree For the trees have practically made me. They give me food .. They give me juice rY:~ And I hope they will never reduce. '~ But the government doesn't care They think it's very funny But all they really want is money. Here in the rainforest It is our home.

We try to fight for it But sometimes we are all alone. Someday we will have to say goodbye For the trees will no longer be so high Someday we will have to say goodbye. By Michael Ast Grade4

DO YOU CARE FOR NATURE? Have you been in a forest just after a rainfall? Have you ever just stopped in your tracks and listened to the birds? Have you ever realized that all the trees we cut down could be a home, a favourite shady spot, our life? It means nothing to them but what does it mean to you? Do you care for nature and love the trees, do you think birds are admired? You know deep down that you do, but you just don't want to show it. You can help if you care. It all comes from the heart. You're the one who can save the rainforests. You're the one. You can help. by Natasha Zimnoch Grade4

A DAY AT THE BEACH The salty water crashed onto the shore with the impact of a lightening bolt. By now the sun was high in the azure, blue sky. The grains of sand were scorching in the heat and many sunbathers were now sprinting to reach the cool refuge of the ocean. The turquoise waves seemed to claim new playmates each time they rolled in. Bodies baked on the towels that lay scattered amongst the sun's rays. The sand was pale pink, almost a cream, and it stretched on for miles. To the right two poles were pounded into the ground. A net of worn strings hung from the poles. As the sunlight filtered through, its shadows danced on the sand. A white ball was volleyed and spiked, back and forth, among tanned teammates. The aqua water threw swimmers over and under waves as it shimmered like a gem. Umbrellas dotted the beach casting welcome shade over sun burnt bodies. As you look out to the horizon, you can taste the salty air and feel the sun's intense rays. For a minute all the commotion is behind you. It is then that you can experience the peace and calm of a pleasurable day at the beach. By Jessica Haber GradeS

INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS' MUSIC FESTIVAL I.S.M.F. is a festival that 16 schools sang in a choir together. For the I.S.M.F. we had to practise on Saturday and Sunday. We sang at Roy Thompson Hall. The concert started at 7:15 and we sang "One World", "I See the Love of God in Every River", "Ava Maria" and "Seventy-six Trombones". Roy Thompson Hall was almost full. We sang the best we could and everybody loved us. by Mark Griffiths GradeS

SUMMER VACATION It starts on June 13 and ends on September 4, when the school year begins again. It's a time for fun and not for school, To go to the beach and lie in the sun. On windy days you can fly a kite and on calm days play badminton. It's a time to enjoy despite all the mosquitos, jellyfish and bees. On rainy days just sit inside and read a book and wish for another sticky day. You can sit on the rocks and let the waves crash over your head or dive off the rock right into the water. Rainy days are good for going to swim in the warm pool or even to have a race. l wish it was summer all over again. By Nadia lncardona Grade 7

FROM THE EDITORS

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to the success of the 1992 yearbook. Thanks to the families who support us financially, to the students for their many contributions, to the photographers, and our special thanks to Sally Maddix, Maria Radford and Laura Pollard for the typing and computer formatting. As editors since 1985, we have had a challenging and rewarding experience. We are proud of the evolution of the yearbook, and hope that our successors will derive as much satisfaction as we have by experimenting with their own look for future Perspectives.
