Favourite memories of PCHS:

Skate-a-thons.... Murder ball in Mr Buchner's Gym class!!! Mrs. Isler's English class (I can still recite MacBeth!!!) School Dances- when people used to actually go to the dances! The Grad lounge - that was never open! Father Pat! Father Frank! Getting my grad ring, and the cross at the grad mass! Grad Prom on a Wednesday night (that did not stop us!)

Comments:

After graduating from P.C. I went to Abbott and then to Trent University in their B.A. Hons English Literature. I took a year off and worked at Easton Sports Canada. I quickly realized that I hated it. I am now in Antigonish, Nova Scotia (it is on the way to Cape Breton Island - one of the only places in Canada where there is a stop light on the Trans Canada!). I am in my first year of a Bachlor of Education programme at St. Francis Xavier University to teach Secondary English. I am looking to get in touch with anyone who graduated (or was supposed to graduate) in or arround 1990 - say from 1988-1991. It is almost reunion time for us, and it would be nice to "find" as many people as possible..... so if you graduated from P.C. around then, or you know someone who did - email me

Hail and Health!

Favourite memories of PCHS:

First day of school... getting lost looking for my class... being one of the shortest people in the class (trust me, I've grown somewhat!)... 1st dance (all the guys in "Miami Vice" gear)... the school band... Connecticut and Boston...the soccer team (Lake Placid trip, scoring on our own net, crazy gang fight in Lasalle)... playing basketball at lunch... finally getting my driver's license (remember the Caddy?)... the Carnivals and Variety Shows... Grad ball and reception... all my friends, the parties and hanging out.

Message for future graduates:

1. Education = opportunity. Stay in school and follow your dreams.
2. Cut your teacher's some slack. It may not seem like it but they do care for you.
3. Just be yourself. Friends will come and go. As life goes on all the "cliques" will disappear. Respect yourself, respect others and everything will work out.
4. "let us not look over the old ground, let us rather prepare for what is to come"

Comments:

After graduating from Concordia in 1996 I moved to Toronto. I worked at the Royal Bank for 3 years. First in the credit card section and then in investments. It was a great experience but I realized that it wasn't for me. I then accepted a job teaching English in Japan. Things are working out quite well. I've been here since January 2000. For my first assignment I was located near Tokyo. Very interesting city but very crowded and congested.

Recently I have moved to Awaji Island which is in Osaka Bay. A lot smaller and quieter but I'm much closer to nature (beaches, hot springs, hiking, etc).

Boy there's so many I don't know where to start! Anything that had to do with cheerleading competition, PC dances (who was sober enough to remember?), senior back plaza (self-explanatory), gold passes!!! Ha! What a joke!!! Do they still have those?!! Frit' sauce and pouteen at Mickey's, Mr. Lumas and his no charge-free classes, cafeteria ladies, caf. pizza, cheap milk and buns -- would you like some butta?, sneaking out of religion class during prayer time (speaking of prayer, anyone remember who the kleptos were at the Oratory in grade 8?), Mr. Eustace "that's the way the mop flops!", ski trip to Mont Blanc in grade 11 (those that were there know what I'm talking about...), Grade 8 ski trip (luckily I was in the first group!!!), girl's locker room before gym class (cough, cough!) hangin'out in the grad lounge at lunch, trading cheat sheets, the bridge and being grounded all summer..., and so many more great (and not so great) memories!I would do it all over again!! I loved every minute.

Favourite memories of PCHS:

Bean whacking the hell out of a desk every time he felt the urge ('Big Red' entertaining him as he did so). Sneaking in to the auditorium for weeks and playing with the fire extinguishers, climbing the walls of the changing rooms, sitting in the crawl space above the ceilings, riding the electric curtain (not a euphemism for anything, I swear!) they make a nice ride when you hang on PROPERLY (Thanks to *someone* (you know who you are) who tore it by hanging on to the end and pulling a *little* too hard! If anyone asks, I will deny to the grave.)

Watching Pano Xinos spaz out on a weekly / daily basis...(remember the karate kick he 'almost' gave Ray Verreault in the gym locker?). The shows, the thrills, the fights, the wonderful women, (first you get da mo-ney, den you get da power, den you get da wee-men...) I had neither, Ah well :)

Mrs. Evans shaking & kicking Chris after he called her a B!+@# (poor Chris, bad Evans!). Buechner reciting Hitler's speaches (freak) and the many strange stories that took place on or around grad night :o Avon Connecticut trip, Food in the Caf., loved those oatmeal cookies for 50 cents, milk for a quarter, was it? 'Mystery Meat' and 'Eggs Alive' ('Eggs l'Ail', as I found out later).

Not doing ANY work and getting a steady 76.4% almost every semester for 5 years :) :), the liars and the cheats, the bullies and the wusses, the brainiacs and the super-achievers, those few people who could 'get' things for you on short notice ;) wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more, my fictional Gold Pass in Townson's 11th grade math (thanks for blowing that one on me, Mr. Viegas!), Ron-Ton (Tondino) in adv. Chem. helping out a little too much on our tests, and many hours being chastised by 'Conan the Librarian'.

The geeky crowd and the 'cool', the freaks, the preps, the semi-religious marms, I was always somewhere in between all of them at some point... That was me in High School. Never would I do that again... but I wouldn't have changed a thing if I could! It was memorable, yet frightening on a daily basis. I did meet my best friends there, so it is well worth the hassle. Ciao!

Message for future graduates:

***I want to hear from old friends, if you're out there***

Future grads: When you graduate, wait a few years, the friends who stop you to say 'hi', or hang out with you still, are true. The rest were acquaintances so don't stress. The ones who gave you a hard time, they are probably going to end up working for you one day, so keep that in mind. True friends stick around no matter what. They should be the single most important things you take with you out of high school... Have fun and stay out of bad trouble!

Let me see...All the women chasing me around...no no, that was someone else... I would have to say getting away from Mr. Bean's wrath just because he used to coach my brother in football, (Poor Brian Bird's ass was a magnet for Mr. Bean's ruler). Other memories, Mr. Songui breaking Mr. Bean's ruler by mistake. We thought that was the end of the stick but I think he brought in a bat the next day! Thanks to PC for all the friends I made and still have today.

Favourite memories of PCHS:

It would have to be the time I spent getting the monkey crap beaten out of me in by the illustrious phys ed teacher Buechner (all those who took his class felt his wrath). As well, being called a pecher head, loser and spaghetti bender by Mr. Eustace in his English class aided in my intellectual development and really made me feel special. Finally, all the memorable hours I spent in Mr. Shore's office... ahh, where have the years gone?

Comments:

For all those who remember me, contrary to all popular predictions, I have actually made something of myself. I married the first girl I fell in love with and that really set me straight. I realized all the years I spend annoying my teachers, not paying attention in class and partying and drinking till I could no longer stand was ... beneficial. My crazy years were actually cathartic because I got it all out of my system before the important years... college and university. I went to Dawson and then McGill, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. I got a job as a product manager right out of university for a company that imports electrical goods. Recently, I jumped ship for a better opportunity. I will be starting a graduate program in management at McGill in September 2000 and hopefully my MBA soon after that. Surprise ... surprise. If any of you feel you must validate the info before you, just ask Claudio Dobranski we took a couple of classes together at McGill. As well ask Angela Diotte.
