Jl Word Prom rrlie }ldministrators r:.Bar6ara qoodwin Zei6ots- Jfead ofSclioo{ As I contemplate my last few months at York, my mind is filled with all sorts of memories. Ten years ago when we started the Upper School, our goal was to create an extension of the already excellent school that had been born in 1965. From those brave beginnings has grown an Upper School of which we can be truly proud. The student leadership, student scholarship, increasing devotion to student volunteer service and student involvement in a myriad of co-curricular activities contribute to the new York status as a first-tier school in the Canadian Independent School education system. Read all about it in this 2005-2006 edition of a Higher Perspective. Bravo to the students, faculty and administration that have made this distinction possible!!

9vf.arilyn )f.ndrews - {[)irector of)f.dmissions Congratulations to the entire yearbook staff for keeping everything in Perspective and to York for forty years of helping kids love learning!

{[)avidJfamifton - Jfead of Vpper Sclioo{ Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,/Creeps in this petty pace from day to day/And yet,/Yesterday, and yesterday, and yesterday,/Fiew by so fast we almost missed it/Thank goodness for an awesome yearbook staff/Who captured all those precious moments past/The slings and arrows of outrageous wrestling,/The proud Head's retirement, the Arts Night talent./ls this a project which I see before me?/(As personal as can be) Come, let me clutch thee./To play basketball, perchance to play it weii,/For a championship was so nearly missed./To explore India, France and Spain and then/Come back to find at home enough exams/To keep one company for so short a year./York's but a fleeting moment, a rich dessert/That delights the mind and nourishes the soul/And then is heard again . For in this life of/Camps and jobs, universities, careers/Yorkies you will be throughout the creeping years.

r:.Bar6ara Lister - J(B Coordinator Once again, universities have recognized the achievements of York students and will reward many of you with scholarships. With time, you will probably value the experience of these past two years more than you do now. Remember those dark days when yet another essay I presentation I lab was due, when you thought the work was endless, that you couldn't possibly finish it all- be proud of yourselves and realize that all that hard work was indeed a good investment in the future! As you head off in new directions, we know that you have the skills, knowledge and experience to deal confidently with new challenges and that you will continue to learn, to grow and to be involved in your community. Congratulations and best wishes to all of you!

P.ric (]{p6ertson - :Mrt<P Coordinator and Vpper S clioo{}lssistant Jfead Our global schoolhouse at 40 continues to grow, and yet, still retains a family feel. Grade 7's and 8's took advantage of the many opportunities that the York School offers. From bouncing for fitness to building robots to international debates, extracurriculars were extraordinary! Artistic and athletic opportunities abounded, including the U13 Boys Basketball tournament and the CIS Music Festival. We saw super science fair projects, awesome ravine adventures and fluent French speeches. Camp Ooch and Challenge Week provided unique opportunities for developing teamwork and leadership skills. We searched for creative ways to tackle homelessness, cancer and AIDS. Our dances and crazy spirit days proved we know how to have fun! The positive energy that radiates from this community is remarkable! -3-

To Ms. Goodwin-Zeibots on her retirement: Two roads diverae in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be on traveler, lone I stood And looked down one as £ar as I could To where I bent in the underarowth; Then took the other, as just as £air, And havin$ prhaps the better daim, Because it was arassy and wanted wear; Thouah as £or that, the passin$ there Has wom them really about the same. And both that momin$ equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the £irst £or another day! Yet knowin$ how way leads on to way, I doubted i£ I should ever come back. I shall be tellin$ this with a siah Somewhere aaes and aaes hence; Two roads diveraed in a wood, and II took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the di££erence. -Robert Frost

Prom everyone who has had the honour o£ experiencin8 your care and vision, we celebrate and salute you lor your 40 years o£ dedication to The York School. On behal£ o£ all o£ us, thank you lor havin8 the courage lor takin8 the road less traveled.

The trip to was a great opportunity for the students to meet their classmates for the rest of the year. During the second day, there was a leadership workshop from Outward Bound which involved a great deal of teamwork and the students were able to develop many relationships. Overall, it was an amazing experience! - Tyler Whitaker

O

n April 8, 2006 York hosted its annual Ooch-a-thon. Activities such as obstacle courses, raffles, head shaves, a commedian and various sports were run throughout the day from when school started in the morning until midnight. All money raised that day went to help support Camp Oochigeas, a camp for kids with cancer. It was an extremely fun and successful day! - Nikki Toten

eek MalJ2006 howing artistic flair at an urban metal working and jewellery gallery. Cycling Quebec's P'tit Train du Nord. Helping someone make furniture choices as they move from a shelter to independent living. Each an experience designed to challenge the way our students learn and grow.

S

It's all part of Challenge Week, a programme unique to York that combines elements of our Outreach, Outdoor Education and 18 Middle Years Programmes. Whether in town or across country, MYP students learn about something new and different, something they could become quite passionate about. Grades 7 and 8 participants stay closer to home, pursuing their challenges during school hours, in and around the city. By grades 9 and 10, challenge means immersion in a new environment, complete with overnight stays. The whole point is to connect our students to the wider world in as many ways as possible.

Helping Hands T he students who chose to do the "Helping Hands" Challenge week went with Mr. Robertson, Mr. John and Ms. Fey and were able to help out at a number of places around the city. At the furniture bank we had lots of fun doing tasks like shredding paper and organizing documents. The main feat we accomplished was painting the cage room, we shared a lot of laughs doing it and were so proud of ourselves when we finished. Later on in the week we ventured out to different homeless organizations such as Beatrice House and Evergreen Youth Center. We had an equally good time at both places, not to mention we learned a lot. I think the one factor that made this such an awesome challenge week was all the people. We had a great, friendly, fun loving group of students, our challenge week leaders led well and were very kind, letting us have 2 lunches out and letting us buy cinnabons on the subway, and the people volunteering at the furniture bank and when you're there you can see they really love doing what they do. - Dmitri Kralik -60-


Eat to your Heart's Content E

at to your Heart's Content was one of the trips offered for Challenge Week. This trip was about cooking and taking classes at a Loblaw's cooking school. During the week we got the chance to make and eat Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Thai dishes at various locations around the city. Everyone's favourite was the Indian which included curried and buttered chicken as well as homemade pitas. Overall, "Eat To Your Heart's Content" was really fun and everyone enjoyed the time preparing and eating. - Louisa Schwarz

Take a Hike his year's grade 7/8 hiking challenge week included: Rock climbing, beach volleyball, hiking at Mono cliffs, walking to waterfront, yoga, Goodlife fitness, and of course, more hiking. It was a great opportunity to interact with our peers. We saw different areas of Toronto, (as well as Mono cliffs) and developed new skills relating to volleyball, yoga and rock climbing. Through rain and little shine, the hikers of '06 were determined to reach their numerous destinations. With our two great leaders Mr. Maerov and Ms. Nelson we all had a great time and have officially mastered the skill of hiking!! - Leah Bandler

Keep your Hands on the Wheel his particular challenge involved activities that had to do with pottery. The itinerary for each day included pottery in the morning and then another activity in the afternoon. This often included trips to various museums. We went to The ROM, the Bata Shoe museum, and the AGO. During the mornings when we went to the pottery studio, we did many activities that ranged from hand made pinchpots to leaf shaped sushi plates. One of the most memorable moments was when Johan was making a bowl on a pottery wheel and it flew right off and hit the wall. Keep Your hands on the Wheel was an amazing experience, all thanks to the wonderful teachers that made it possible. -Amanda Hu

T

I Want to be in the Movies

his challenge week we learned a lot about movie making and acting on camera. We each took turns at sound crew and logs, while our peers were acting. We had a lot of work but got through it. The memorizing of the lines was really hard. We couldn't have finished this great production without the help of our teachers, director, and student helpers. Mrs. Bunyard gave much enthusiasm to the group. Jill Frappier was the director and gave much creativity to the script and made our week truly unique. Jill's son helped with the movement of technological objects and Matt Grison (a former York Head Boy) was a great help and brought lots of laughs to the group. - Corbin Broad

Wood U Do It? e had a really great time doing Wood U Do lt. During the week we spent three days doing wood carving with an awesome teacher Mr. Usher. We learned the basics of carving, such as about the different tools and the different cuts that they make. In the end we each got to make a wood carving in a piece out of bass wood. Some people made ships, some people made irises and some even made their lives hard and made innuschuks. In the last two days we went to a studio called U can do it! While we were there we got to learn about different types of furniture factories and we got to make whatever we wanted with his extra wood. We made everything from rocking horses to dog beds to two-seater benches. And all the while Mr. Denstedt was their to help us out when we really needed it. - Emily Peckham

W

Who Framed Roger Rabbit Pictures are unavailable for the Who Framed Rover Rabbit Challenge Week Trip. he "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" Challenge took place at "Max the Mutt" animation school and our teacher was Enzo. Through the challenge we learned about the many elements of drawing in a "cartoony" style. For the first day we learned mainly about drawing faces and over the course the week we gradually added bodies to our faces. Also in the afternoons we created animations of a bouncing ball and a pendulum for zoetropes (old fashioned film projectors). Also on one of the days we went to the art gallery next door and practiced life drawing. We all got lots of drawing practice throughout the week, and overall had a great time. - Sonia Stramaglia

What Did You Say? W

e headed off to The Second City Training Centre for a full week of improvisation. The students' imaginations worked overtime all morning doing incredible and, of course, funny improv exercises. In the afternoon, they created their own sketches, rehearsed them and finally performed to a laughing audience on the original Second City stage. For some reason, they named the production, "What's Next ... The Walrus" - just another example of great imaginations at work. Midweek we got to watch a Second City production. I had a great week being entertained by very talented students. - Sally O'Neill

Pick a Card!

bracadabra! If you want a week that flies by at a magical pace, then this is the week for you. With the aid of the incredible Bill Abbot and the wonderful Julie Eng, we mastered tricks that would have previously stretched the limits of our imaginations. Through the week we learned many tricks involving ropes, cups, balls, vases and, my personal favourite, cards. Our challenge week program "Pick a Card" was a great experience over all, but it was Bill's somewhat quirky behaviour and Julie's constant scolding of Bill that made the week so memorable, as well as the wonderful company. We strongly recommend it for anyone who loves to act and has a strong affinity for magic and comedy! -Adam Kovacs-Litman

Cowichan:

Land Warmed by the Sun

F

or five days I stayed with 14 kids and two teachers in one of the most beautiful and unique places in Canada. While we were on this trip we saw some of the biggest trees in the world, over 300 feet high and 6 feet wide. We also went to the amazing botanical beach and saw the Pacific Ocean and looked at different salt water creatures such as seals. Though my favourite experience on the trip was seining, we helped a marine biologist with his studies by collecting the different types of creatures that lived in an area underwater. We got to see jelly fish, eels, shrimp, and different types of fish . What made this trip special was the fact that most of us never get to see these types of things and we were able to interact with them - Zane Mersky

Heavy Metal

D

uring our Heavy Metal Challenge Week, we learned how to make different types of jewellery. We learned about the process of making jewellery and all the effort that it takes. We made bracelets, earrings, and pendants during the five days at the gallery. During the week we also had an exclusive tour through Tiffany's, where we were shown the different kinds of jewellery they sell. We also had a guest speaker, who gave us a presentation about how to start your own business. Throughout the week we learned many new things about jewellery and were proud of the many different types of jewellery we were able to make. -Sol Golero . 65.


So You Think You Can Dance? This challenge week trip was amazing. We all had a great time and really loved learning the different styles of dancing whether it was African, Capoeira, Reggae Tone, or Salsa. Our week didn't just consist of dancing; we also had the opportunity to watch the group Red Sky practice for an upcoming show, as well as other professional dancers. Although it was a painful week that was full of long and sweaty days for some, it was really worth it and was a great experience. Everyone on the trip got along really well and had a fun week dancing together. We wish we could do it again ... we would all love to watch our teachers shake their hips. I think we all learnt that.. . they used to wear white pristine shirts. -Sarah Latowsky & Talya Feldman-Lloyd

Culinary Boot Camp W

hat's better than eating gourmet food for an entire school week? Well, that was the mindset of everyone on the challenge week "Culinary Boot Camp". We traveled up to the Super 8 Motel in Niagara on the Lake for a 5 day stay. Each day we had a cooking lesson at the Good Earth Cooking School where professional chefs helped us prepare a new multi-course meal everyday. When we weren't cooking we checked out the local food industry. We toured many wineries and cheese factories and enjoyed many sunny scenic walks. Our favourite part? Each tour complete with a taste;) - Sally Engelhart

Dig This! he Dig this challenge week trip to the American Center for archeology was a perfect trip for students who have always been interested in experiencing archeology. Over the course of one week we uncovered the past at a 2000 year old village site, processed archeological finds in a dig site lab, and explore sessions in experimental archeology (flint knapping, pottery and tool making.) and many more amazing experiences. An incredible experience that will never be forgotten. We will miss you Kipper!! -Mr. Medved

Animals in Action

EE-HAW! Visiting the Donkey Sanctuary was our groups' first order of business. We got to groom and feed the donkeys. Our group fell in love with their gentle, intuitive nature. TYS adopted one donkey and a lamb (BAAA). The Circle R Ranch near London was our new home for the week (who knew that shovelling horse poop could be so fun)! We didn't even have time to unpack because we went riding as soon as we got there. Although everybody liked their horses everybody was quite aware that Ben was the best horse (fastest and best looking) and should only be ridden by the best 'cowboy'. Other highlights included eating Delaware's finest diner "The Little Beaver", learning equine massage, learning about the SARI program (riding for the disabled), Ml 3 (Tom is sooo hot), and becoming BFFs. The Animals in Action group had a fantastic time and would like to thank our trusty steeds for carrying us around for many unforgettable rides! Remember: Always drink upstream from the herd. -Mr. Stewart

T-Doc: West Side

F

or The York School's annual Challenge Week T-Doc was split the city into the west and east sides. We were going to film as many things as possible to show the west side of Toronto. We decided to visit Hyde Park, Roncesvalles, Parkdale, Sunnyside, Harbour Front (the west side of Yonge Street of course), and Wards Island which is east of Centreville. In Hyde Park we walked around and saw all this amazing green space ripe for Frisbee throwing, baseball, soccer and other sports. In Roncesvalles we visited Granowska's which is an amazing bakery. We also visited Parkdale, which has the Drake Hotel and the Gladstone Hotel which are places where people just hang out. Sunnyside used to be a popular amusement park with rides and other things like that, now it is a quiet oasis next to the lake. Harbourfront has some great buildings and theatres, as well as an activity centre and a lot of tour boats, it is also where you catch the Ferry to the islands. Wards Island has a lot of quiet homes and some very nice walking area and also Frisbee golf. We all enjoyed our trip and would like to thank Ms. Ventura and Johnny Gardhouse who helped us make our documentary and made sure we did not get lost or something. -AiexGoel

Quebec par bicyclette par bicyclette was tres fun. Our first day was a breeze Q asuebec we rode through our kilometers like Lance Armstrong, getting to our first stop way ahead of schedule. This seemed to be a trend for the athletes on this trip. Motoring through the paths meant we had plenty of time to hang around which is always fun when you have a good group (especially one with expert impressionists). The Bed & Breakfasts along the way shared their kindness and delicious food which fuelled us for the next peddle pusher of a day. Once the paved paths turned to sand and the temperature rose, we didn't feel much like athletes anymore but persevered nonetheless. And on our final day we were able to test our raingear as it poured down hard making our last ride a chilly and muddy one. But like always, despite the situation the spirits were up. And it turned out that our greatest challenge was making the train home on time! -Kat Green

Wilderness 101

O

n the wilderness 101 trip, we bonded with our peers as well as our superiors by engaging in much recreational fun including ultimate Frisbee and baseball games. On our trip, we went white water canoeing for the most part and also learned about wilderness first aid. The days spent training in the areas of canoeing and the first aid helped us on the overnight canoeing trip that we ventured on. This was a great trip and I highly recommend it for the people next year. - Michael Sniderman

Raising the Roof

R

aise the Roof was a great challenge week where we went to Oochigeas. Our main task was to build a yurt for the campers. The teachers in our group had found a great spot for the yurt which was about a fifteen minute walk away from the camp. But building the yurt wasn't the only task, the whole week we were divided in different groups and we each had different activities to do. One group worked on the yurt, while the other groups either worked on building an outhouse or cleared trails around the camp. Even though we worked a lot we also had a lot of fun activities, we want canoeing, built fires, and went swimming in the lake. It was a lot of fun and by the end we were all really proud of our accomplishments. - Maru Gorlero

o introduce the school's move to a new Green Plan, April 20th was chosen as a celebration of Earth Day. The aim of this whole school event was to inspire students to make a difference in caring for the environment. The wide range of activities included observing biodiversity, learning about the ecological footprint, looking into alternative energy technologies, cycling Toronto and participating in a local clean-up event. Other activities focused on issues such as the urban ecology of rivers and trees, the effects of environmental change upon our feathered friends, learning about controlled burns and making clay seed balls as part of an endangered habitat restoration project along with planting trees for habitat creation. The York school community also planted 600 trees as part of Earth Day celebration, equating to the absorption of 1 680 Kg of C02 per year. With information from 135 travel data sheets completed by parents, it was estimated that the carbon emissions for the event were at 157 Kg and that 23 trees would need to be planted to absorb these emissions. The fact that we easily met this target sets an important precedent for ensuring that other school events are carbon neutral. Congratulations to the York School community for moving toward the goal of becoming a "Carbon Neutral Organization" in reducing our ecological footprint. -Mr. Emerson

On March 11th, 2006, 13 York students accompanied by two teachers left for France and Spain. We arrived in Paris after a lengthy stopover in Newark, New Jersey and took in all the wonders the City of Lights had to offer- the Eiffel Tower, I' arc de triomphe, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the Louvre Museum, among many others. We took a night train to Tolouse and, en route to Barcelona, stopped at the ancient city of Carcassone. Highlights of Barcelona include the breathtaking Olympic Park and Holy Family Church. Madrid was the final leg of the journey, where we enjoyed its museums and wonderful parkland. We returned home on 20 March, tired, but feeling very satisfied with our voyage to Europe. - Christopher Di Matteo -74-

Valedictorian Speech Given by Andrew Baskerville: Today is a celebration and I am pleased and honoured to be part of that celebration. It's the celebration of students of all ages, it's the celebration of one of our founders and it's a celebration of a group of young adults who will leave 1320 Yonge Street and make their mark on the world. Some of you may know me as Andrew, Andy or simply 'Hey you!' but over the last three years, I've been asked the same question many times over: Andy, what's with the Sheriff's badge? When I first came here, I wore about 25 pins and badges on my blazer, trying to find individuality but instead finding the quickest route to Mr Hamilton's office. He told me that I could keep one pin, and I choose to wear the Sheriff's badge and since, it's become an alter-ego, a second identity. I remember once, I was on the 1st floor and I was standing in the corridor talking with a teacher when a group of quite young students filled by. As I was talking, I felt a slight tug on my trousers, not a big one but enough that I could notice it. I looked down at the children as they walked away and I heard one of them say "That was the Sheriffi I touched him! I touched him!" When I came to the York School in 2003, I felt like a foreigner in my own country. Arriving Canadian-born with only a few connections in Canada, I was apprehensive to come here to this country and start all over again. As anyone who has experienced significant change can attest, the transition between the home you know and the new home you must make is difficult. It's difficult because along with a change of scenery, there is the loss of old friends and the challenge to make new ones, the loss of familiarity and the need to find it a new. The beginning of my transition began with the York School and joining the community of teachers, students and their families. I must be brutally honest, I was nervous coming here, but in retrospect I shouldn't have been. In York, I found a welcoming and genuinely inclusive and tightly-knit community. Students of all ages went out of their way to make me feel included and it was not long before I knew I had found a place that was right for me. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of York's students young and old, here now as graduates and those already on their way to their future success, for making me feel welcome here, I feel that I have found a friend in all of you . When I arrived at school my first September, I was a silly and fun-loving teenager and through my time here, my teacher's worked hard to pull me through high school, creating the Andy you see before you today: a silly and fun-loving teenager but with a critical difference: with a diploma. This school offers a diverse and challenging academic program, and it must be recognized that without our teachers, success would be a greater challenge. The teachers at York are an integral part of our education and helped guide us and assist us to attain our personal bests. Through every step and hurdle, they made an amazing effort to make us the learners we have evolved to be. And what's more, they made the education process fun . Whether we were watching students dancing in math, visiting the Fields of Ha Ha or enjoying cleverly done impressions of Mr Hamilton, they never ceased to make our time at York enjoyable. I thank, on the behalf of my class but also the graduates of the future, all of the member's of staff who dedicated their class time but also their personal time to shaping and improving us. Through extra-help with difficult subjects, sports programs and other initiatives, they helped to make our school experience enjoyable and engaging. They have left an unmistakable impact on the lives of this year's graduating class and so I would like to thank the faculty for their patience, their dedication and giving us the experiences and the tools we need to develop. There are quite a few graduates for this year, which means that there are quite a few family members sitting in front me as I stand at this podium. Today is about us grads showing you, our parents and family, of how all the work we've done all year and in the years leading up to it have paid off. It's about showing you how we survived through these tough times but I know better than that. I might be young, inept and freakishly handsome but I know better than that. We came home telling you we have scores of portfolios and assignments, and you scoffed. We came home and told you about something called the Group IV project and how hard it's going to be and you scoffed. We came home and complained about some of the single most important exams of our lives and you mocked our pain. Just because you walked to school ten miles uphill, both ways, barefoot, in the snow, doesn't make our challenges any less daunting. I can personally vouch for these people, that all the complaining, grumbling, moaning and whinning was well warranted, they deserve this day. As I look to my left, I can see 48 extraordinary individuals. As I look at these individuals, I see familiar faces. Faces of people I've known these three years, the faces of people I've shared many classes with or many of the experiences of the York School. As a class we're been through a lot: I haven't been at York as long as some but I know that this class has experienced so much together. We may not have all taken the same courses, played the same sports or have the same hobbies or interests but we all were connected by our shared experiences of the school: challenge weeks, fashion shows, coffee houses, assignments, orals, exams, our lounge, nearly losing our lounge. These shared experiences helped to bond our year together and brought together. As I continue to look at our graduates, I know there are several common attributes to these faces. Firstly, I just quickly want to say that I'm happy to see many tanned and health looking faces, let's face it guys we all looked pretty pale in May. For those who did not have the pleasure of being in the school during May, many rooms and quiet spaces were over-run by many emotionless and dazedlooking zombies. It was only upon closer inspection that it was found that it was just the Grade 12's studying for their next exam. Secondly, the faces I see are faces of people with whom I battled through 3 of the toughest years of secondary school. The hardships we faced, especially in the final 2 years, challenged us and stretched each of us to our own limits. Each challenge pushed us farther and farther and expanded our knowledge of both ourselves and each other. As we reached our personal hurdles throughout the school year, we began to face our hardships less as individuals but as a group, supporting and helping each other. The challenging atmosphere could have ignited competition between students and created a cold social tone amongst us but it didn't. That, ladies and gentlemen is the symbol of the character of the graduates of 2006. The hardships we faced brought us closer together. Sitting in a spare classroom moments before one of the most important final exams, one might expect to see students crouching in corners, silently cramming from their textbooks or notes. One might expect to see short-fuses and stressed faces. But what I saw as I sat in that classroom was students helping others. In these last vital moments when they could be cramming for themselves, they were taking the time to help others get through the same challenge. Moments like these didn't reveal our class' nature, they defined it. Through thick and thin, through good and bad, we have always been there for each other. It might be said that it's typical for students to bond into divided groups of friends, isolated from each other. That may be true, but these young adults are anything but typical. The third thing I see in these faces are the faces of friends, and I would not hesitate to call any of these remarkable people my friends. What does the future hold for these talented and motivated people? I know we'll see all ranges of vocations and places in business, communications and the home. Writers, designers, engineers, actors, teachers, lawyers, scientists, business executives, mothers, fathers and friends. But there is one thing about these adult's futures that is crystal clear. Whatever it is these incredible people decide to do, whatever path they choose to follow, it will be the high road, the road to personal satisfaction and success. I know that whatever they do, they will make a difference. Each person sitting here today has the skills, the talent and the ability to succeed but not only to succeed but exceed. They will exceed their expectations, exceed their goals and they will become successful but more importantly, they will succeed in life and getting the most from it. I can tell everyone present here today that this year's graduates are incredible individuals, each and everyone of them, and that I will be looking forward to the future and revelling in the success they will all achieve. I want to leave you with a piece advice, advice I wish to impart on the graduates, but also to all of you: Life isn't just about the destination, it's about the journey to reach it. I urge you strive for your best, and give your all. And I urge you to savour every moment of your journey, whatever your destination, and cherish it. I know and believe you will all achieve great things. Thank you very much.

Silent Battles By Andrew Cooper They snap my skies as the colours grow dim. Sunken into shallows of warm blankets of love. And the silent war of silent cannons Battlse underneath me as I lie in shame. Behind enemy lines, I am, Crying for them to let me go in peace. But the crack of the whip tells me too keep my place, Or fear my freedom of rest thee days. My face calls longing to them but they choose to not hear it, As they yell in front of young and old At me, sitting and whimpering without sound. They cut my phone line to life. But I know that the fear in me lies within them, Fear of valediction. For my chains are attained Only as I grow.

World Hunger By Steve Yin Everyday in 3rd world countries, Life is like September nth. Death does its jobs, Every single minute. Most eat once a day, Foods as simple as grass and hay. Children are starving, And they're as skinny as a string. Most are malnourished, Most are dead. Most parents have HIV AIDS, Most cannot live much longer. Children cannot not even afford food Not to mention education. Their drinks are mud water. While our drinks are filled with sugar. We're busy thinking of money. We don't think about the others. Why do governments spend money on wars? When they could solve world hunger.


Today I saw mermaids, or I thought I had, that was until the phone rang. Telephones bother me. I always feel like they're alien life forms that aiTe going to create spores in my ear, or something. I answered with the usually "hello?", but no one answered. "Hello?" I said again, and still no answer, so I hung up. It really bothers me when you get calls like those ones, where no one answers; it kind of has an eerie and creepy feel to it. "Who was that?" my mother asked. What?, oh no one, just a wrong number I guess." "Oh okay, good it wasn't my boss" she said faintly "Well "ts getting late I have to go back to work, what time is it?" She turned around towards my room's clock. "You know," she muttered." Your clock's been stuck like that for days, and you haven't bothered to fix it. Only I worry about things like that." I shrugged, "yea, well ill take it later to get it fix". I lied. She gave me the I-don't-believe-you-but-ihave-no-time-for-this look. It was a Saturday, and it annoyed me just like every other one. Everyone is always happy that a Saturday is coming, making big plans and working things out. Though the truth is that when it does come people never do anything. All they do is sit around, watch T.V., order food and stay at home. People are to lazy to do anything which is why Saturdays bug me. In my case I was taking a nap, nothing really original. I was bored and wanted a pet. Looking down on the floor I remembered when I was in the fourth grade. It was show and tell day and a special one, one where you brought your animals to show. I had my fish "pinky" who I had just bought in the pet store. I carried it to the class in a plastic bag, when it was my turn to go up and presented it to the class I found my plastic bag almost empty, dirty and pinky had disappeared. I ended up blaming it on the cat ghost to avoid making a fool of myself during class. My mom interrupted my thoughts, "Jesse, Jesse! Listen, focus now focus!" she said in a loud voice. I looked at her, and she stared at me. "oh no, no, not again, Jesse. Uhh, have you been taking your medication?" I stared away, "urn" she again interrupted me "Now remember to take your pills, the doctor said that you aren't taking them." She said with a very slow and long voice. I Jhate it when she does that, as if I can't listen to her. As I looked at her I thought of how she is just like the others. The kids in the hallway, who always whisper "look its that freaky kid the zoned out one" and respond 'oh yea I have classes with her its so annoying 'cuz she never listens" When I "came back" from this idea my mom had left, I don't know what time it was, I never really knew. It wasn't important to me it never was. Now I was trying to remember the dream that I was having, such an odd one, but in a good way. It's always the thing you least expect which actually happens, you ever notice that? I threw myself back on to my bed and looked up, the ceiling looked much closer than usual. Something cached my eye suddenly right in the middle I saw a small little spark moving back and forth. Not having my glasses there I squinted to look at it closely and to my surprise I gasped. Just then, as I threw myself back I fe into the water of dreams, where the mermaids were found. In front of me, there she was with her ocean blue hair her green eyes purple floating hair and her yellow eyebrows. Just then it hit me, eyebrows. Yes eyebrows, a very random though but really think about it; eyebrows are the strangest part of the human body. They are strands of hair in the middle of ones face; I mean when have you ever thought of that? Right there a piece of hair? In the face above the EYES? Haven't you ever thought of how gross that seems? These are jut small thing of the human or world that just makes you wonder why the hell you're in earth? Well strangely enough her eyebrows where yellow, like that awful lemonade that you had to buy from the little next door neighbor girl for 25cents because you felt bad and that makes you eyes squish inside and your tongue wobble around- yea, that type. - 86!'-


She moved forward towards me and I realized we were reallr deep underwater. I wanted to panic, just having the idea of being there made me remember of the movie JAWS. Yes, I am scared of that movie and whoever says that they aren't, they're secretly lying. "Jesse, can you hear me?" the mermaid said This was such an odd way of starting my first conveFSation with a mermaid, I always thought that they would greet me differen1ily, out this met.maid acted normal, as if she was a human being just like me. "uh yes I guess so" I answered. The mermaid paused and continue to question me. "Jesse, I want you to tell me what you think about all the time?" What type of question was that for a mermaid? What ever happened to 'look at my tail?" or wanna get a tour through the ocean? I guess not. "well, I think of a lot of things, I don't really talk much about them. I keep them to myself." I confusedly answered. Quickly the mermaid responded: "Why? Don't you like to express yourself to the world?" "No." I gave her a direct answer. I didn't feel like explaining mainly because I didn't know how to explain it. The mermaid seemed uneasy by my answer and quietly there floating in the water answered: "I believe that you feel as if you daily routines and communications are blocked by your bunched up thoughts that make it difficult for you to use your focal senses. Am I right?" By this point I was bored, bored of this conversation and the mermaids drunken reasoning. Her way of talking made me uneasy with out saying goodbye or glancing at her I tried to swim away but I just stayed in my place, I couldn't move. Fear came to me so I kicked and screamed, but nothing worked. I <lidn't like this dream anymore. I wanted to go away. I closed my eyes, all I saw was white, a ringing noise was near, my left side was numb the ringing was still there, in my ear, ringing and ringing, ringing such an annoyance. Finally after such desperation I fell in a chair- in an office. There was a man sitting in front of me with a sort of waving circle in his hands; my mother was sitting at his side with a weird look in her face. "Jesse, you're back, calm down. I ant you to take deep breaths, you did very well today; "Great improvement was m ade Mrs. Stuart" he said to my mother. Remember pinky? Remember how he disappeared? Don't worry I don't either. But what you didn't know was that while I was walki,n,g to school f came with the thought of how odd people move, and while I was thinking of that my hand slightly slipped and all the water came down all of it even pinky. My thoughts had killed it. "Jesse, now Jesse I think that was enough for today. Your new therapy will. continue next Monday as always." The man said. By Nuria Pujalte

Poland, 1939 By Max Reedijk The night has passed like rain on a mountain The world awakens to the sounds of war The grass is covered with dew, the air's fountain Steadily beats of the drum of the Cavalry Corps The distance ahead emits deep groans and rumbles Artillery, fire, and death is all that lies ahead Yet the country still exist, the government not crumbled But it comes at the cost of young men, who have fought and bled The horses, always alert, can feel the tension of their masters As the cavalrymen prepare themselves for battle What is in store? Success or disaster? One mans ears frighten him as he hears a far-off tank engine rattle "On your feet men!" Encourages a hardened sergeant "Prepare to meet the fascist invader!" The man stand, wishing to strike a blow against tyranny In a line the cavalrymen sit on their chestnut brown horses Approaching them are steel machines of horror and fire The cavalry charge must be executed with force As the enemy comes into view, they realize times are dire "Gallop, March!"

Incomplete By Sally Engelhart The invisible bond that held Us together fueled, Our unseen ties. Unspokenly broken. Laugh with me. It will never be The Same. Somehow I think you know that too. We both know it. We're both scared. I know you know because we are one. Were one. Cry with me. I'll always be the one that Knows You the best. IT cannot disappear I want to go back to my 9 year self. I want to be a princess again. I want to be your other half. I stand. Incomplete. Only yesterday she dared to blink Lost Beyond, any thought. Burning legends ashed with keys The northern rose will not point. Ahead. The dawn interrupted, A noisy fall and the villagers danced for good fortune to good fools. She threw back her head and her chest prayed to heaven Her mind pulled The trigger. Grand fate stunned grander fortune in the game of doors. Mistakes miilakenly forgot, To tell her so. the rope, to take all the pain hides from her mind, Everyday It was just. Out of reach.

Written by Robin Fulford with the Grade 11 Drama Class Directed and designed by Robin Fulford with assistance in the writing, directing and design from Wendy White. The Performers: Graeme Capelle, Andrew Cardinal, Lauren Davies, Marta Montero-Diez, Elena Sanchez, Jordan Shay, Lauren Shields, Lani Stern, Duncan Thompson. Lighting Manager: lan Johns Sound and Lighting Operator: Mersedeh Samei Stage Construction: John Anderson, lan Johns, Benjt Johansson, Chris Steele T-shirt Screening/Painting: Duncan Thompson In the Aboriginal section of our drama course, we explored the tainted water scandal at Kashechewan, a Cree reserve on James Bay. The story hit the front pages in October, 2005, just before the historic Kelowna Summit on Aboriginal issues. Ironically, some say tragically, Kashechewan appeared back in the news a few months later when spring flooding, which taints the water system, caused another evacuation. Further, we have just found out that our new federal government will not honour the 5 billion dollars committed at Kelowna for Aboriginal issues. A line from the play echoes in our minds: 'Out of sight, out of mind.' Our play fights against this inequity, against this inaction. There are serious water problems on reserves all across Canada. Kashechewan is just one glaring example. We generated the script in a number of ways, from using original media text to creating scenes through improv. The focus for the artists throughout was developing awareness - awareness of ourselves and others, of ignorance and racism, of caring and spirituality. After two scintillating performances on Upper School Arts Night, we travelled to Ridley College to perform at the Conference of Independent Schools Drama Festival in April. We had a fabulous time and performed for thirteen other independent schools. Our production was extremely well received. The adjudicator praised us, saying that the piece should be toured all across Canada. We did justice to both the art form and the issue.

M

any students in the York School participated in the Model United Nations conferences which were held in Montreal and The Hague, Netherlands. Students were given the ability to represent either a country or an NGO and discuss current world issues in a mock United Nations. The Hague trip was an extraordinary experience. There were students from schools in every country in the world. It was a time for York students to interact and work with people from different nationalities. Both these trips were amazing and I would recommend everyone to do it next year.

Oil&

orizons was a new Outreach initiative this year at York. Every Monday afternoon for eight weeks, a group of students from grades 9-12 traveled to Shirley Street Public School to tutor Grade Two's and Three's in reading. We were each paired up with another student, and over the course of the program we became not only their tutor but their friend as well. Whether they were accomplished readers or just learning (like many ESL students), they loved the one-on-one attention that they might not have received otherwise. Furthermore, the York students gained just as much out of the program as the Shirley Street Students. - Liza Howard

From the editor ... It's done. *deep sigh of relief* For me, the yearbook is like the IB: I have learned more than I could have fathomed, had more work than ever thought possible , and in the end , I don't regret a second of it. I have come out of this experience with some valuable life skills- the inner workings of In Design and Photoshop and I can now plead and threaten with the best of them. But, I will start at the beginning-- Thank you to Ms. Elliott for giving me this opportunity, without you none of this would be possible. Special thanks to Ms. Gilbert for always keeping the doors open to the library and to Mr. Appaduri, for babysitting me and making sure I was never alone in the school, even at 10:00 at night. Thank you to my staff for being creative and industrious, and to my friends, who made up the bulk of my staff, for being there for me in a pinch , you are all worth weight in gold . Finally, thank you to the general population of the school for putting up with my nagging and to anyone who ever posed for a picture , or took emergency pictures, when I asked . Oh, and grads-- this was for you; to remember the place where you spent so much time and, more importantly, the people that made it worth it. I hope this book proves to be a cherished reminder of your best memories.
