The people you're hanging around with now have a better sense of your strengths, gifts and shortcomings than you do now. When you talk to them 10 or 20 years from now, they'll remember things about you that you don't and they'll already have predicted your path in life.

Leaving that horrid place! I have seen auto parts plants with better air quality and that looked more appealing. It was an experiment in educational infrastructure gone mad. Too bad the place stopped sinking!

Message for future graduates:

Don't goto CEGEP when you graduate, It's just daycare for young adults. Try a university outside the province ... after all... most of you will be leaving Quebec anyway!

Favourite teachers:

Dr. Samuels, Bill Keevan, Dennis Cato

Comments:

I couldn't believe anyone would setup a Web site to praise PCHS. Come on folks, we were treated like cattle... The inspiring white concrete on a white background motif, the carpeting forever in need of repair, the substandard lighting system, the recycled dust system (was that really air conditioning?).

The BIG CRACK in the field house structure. The place was a nightmare, right out of the box. Do you remember a senior member of the school administration who left under mysterious circumstances? All this school spirit, fond memories ... Talk about revisionist history. Middle age must be taking its toll on our
collective memories.

Any real improvement in Stallag PCHS could be directly attributed to the efforts of the inmates. Oh sorry! ... students. Thanks to the incredible generosity of CIL Paints (thanks Alana), the music students actually organized, and worked through an entire weekend painting the band rooms (this was done over the objections of some).

I do sometimes wonder, if those classrooms are still Powder Blue and Rose.
