Favourite memories of PCHS:

Ahhhh! Let me think! Most of it was a blur! (I wonder why! lol). One incident does come back to me quite often though, and that was the day in Auto class when Mr. Kohn chased Noel O'Brien (Hewit) around the class, needless to say it was a tense moment for Hewit, but god that was a laugh! Another that you, Kelly would remember was the day on our bus from Dorval that Josée Noel wore a hockey helmet on the bus! (I wonder why? LOL). There are numerous other memories... too many to list, all I can say is they were the best of times! Other friends of those days were, Bazz, McGoo, John Derry. I haven't had contact with anyone since '79 except Josée who is still in Dorval and keeps in touch from time to time. It would be great to hear from others of the Class of 1979!

SNAJORTS...what all the guys from football called the rugby team we played on 'cause we had it alllll backwards. Only attended senior year but made friends that have so far lasted a lifetime.

Painting a new year in the "banner". Coulda finished it sooner but 'Hig' had to pull out from
the bottom of the pyramid to find his car keys while Frank was finishing up. Almost became "Class of how Frank broke his head."

Big beers at the PB, Chez Paul and the 1300. Funniest bunch of people I've ever met. Great times.

To be honest, aside from the young ladies I dated while in high school, I have very few if any fond memories of P.C.H.S. I can put on a post-it-note the amount of valuable information I retained from my days in that prison. As it does today, the public school system lacks all the vital components necessary to stimulate young minds. I gained the most in life outside the school system. The huge consumption of illegal substances during my time there didn't help either I must add. Luckily I grew out of that habit when I left there and now live with my wife and two beautiful sons (Nicholas 10 and Douglas who is 8) just km's from P.C. I know this might be hard to believe but I have been with my wife for 20 years. I finally met the right one for me. Lucky lucky me!
