From the Headmaster

This edition of The Georgian marks the 5Ist annual publication of our College’s yearbook. They line the middle shelf of the bookshelf in my office and have spilled over into the shelf below. The photos, art, poetry, memories, clothing and haircuts all reflect

on the time in which each edition was published. The sideburns of the 70's, tightly tapered grey flannels of the 80’s and the mullets of the 90’s echo the styles of the times. More poignantly the yearbooks reflect the social, political and cultural forces that were shaping society, our city and the world.

There is, however, nothing in these 50 previous editions of The Georgian to rival the 2019/20 school year in terms of history being lived. We turned off the lights at school on March 6th to head away for March Break without knowing that we would not turn them on again for the balance of the school

year. COVID-19 changed and shifted our world overnight in a way that we are still only beginning to understand.

However, while we will, for the rest of our lives, remember how this school year ended, I think it’s important to remember much more than what was lost. I am more grateful than ever to our Editor-in-Chief, Mr. Hutton, for curating the images and words that were also part of a memorable school year. Let’s

not forget the times when we were together. The Terry Fox Run, Spirit Week, the musical, concerts and the Carol Service, athletics and debating and Arts Night, ball hockey, outdoor ed trips, community service, the first day of school and the simple joys of day-to-day life at the College are so much more poignant and important than any of us could have imagined. Memories of the before-times and the virtual College are reflected

within the pages of this book. In both there is the tangible undercurrent of those things we hold most dear: community, joy, laughter, learning, kindness and the aspiration to be a better version of ourselves.

Pll end with my thanks and congratulations to the Class of 2020. You taught us well and you held high the banner of RSGC.

Head Prefect’s Graduation Address

| a kala “gmt

= Ba EX

Hello Gentlemen. Also good evening to Mr. Beatty, Mr. O'Leary, teachers, and parents. I just want to start off by mentioning that I am absolutely terrified right now. Although I have practiced this speech until my vocal cords bled, it is not every day that you get to speak in front of such a large crowd, even a virtual one, so _ bear with me.

I would like to thank each and every one of you. Without you, I would not be the person that I am today. I would not have the confidence or the opportunity to stand up here, or sit, and speak to such an attentive audience, even if everybody is forced to be here. The past four years have been the best four years of my life. Not because of a specific moment or event, but because of _the people I spent those years with. Although sometimes said ironically, it truly is the case that this was about the journey, not _the destination. This journey has been filled with failures and accomplishments, challenges, and successes, but we supported each other and made it to the start. As American poet and civil rights activist, Maya Angelou once said, “the idea of overcoming is always fascinating to me, because few of us realize how much energy we have expended just to be here today.” For the past 4 years, 208 weeks, I 461 days, 35 064 hours, 2 103 840 minutes, or 126 230 400 seconds, we have been grinding; but we, or at least I, have not realized how hard we have been grinding, because, within all of the hard work, we have had fantastic moments that make you forget the hard work.

So what better way to finish off the year than by remembering id oC (olenuatcymmet-lmolcelttdel mete olor

Back on the first day of grade 9, Tuesday, September 6, 2016, when Cyrus Abbott, Matt Hartford, Jack Pollock, Sonny Farber, and James Newall were still with us, we started this journey at Arowhon. Although it seems like eons ago, this week shaped us into the amazing group that sits here today. From Connor Commons winning the name game, remembering everyone’s first and last names, to playing watermelon water polo as a

grade, to when we played frisbee golf through the woods of Algonquin Park, the experiences of that week heralded the start of the class of 2020’s dynasty.

The success of that week was mirrored throughout the year, which I am dubbing the year of Halo MD, with the infamous Grade 9 Take Your Kid to Work Day and subsequent French project, to the ever endearing Foundation Year Project, for which my group is still waiting for our environmentally friendly playing cards to arrive.

When Winter rolled around, a group of us trekked up to Lions Head Park for the Duke of Ed trip where we got to enjoy MiO snowcones and late nights playing cards against humanity with Mr Stevens.

And then of course, we can’t forget the lunches when chocolate milk was a daily occurance, and when soccer after lunch was a priority.

Michael and Subin’s infamous Rap Battle happened, and we got our first taste of the legendary Course Selection Process. After our first set of exams, Summer came, and at least for me, it felt like the next year couldn’t come fast enough. We no longer would be the measly niners, the babies of the senior school, we would be big strong grade 10 men!

With grade 10 also came our first taste of freedom. Off campus lunches wandering up and down Bloor street. Pizza Pizza, A&W, Burger’s Priest, Popeye’s, Bulk Barn, and Dollarama among others becoming staples of our daily cuisine, filling

When we got back from our outdoor adventures, we entered the age of pilots. From the pilot schedule with the split third period to the no phones pilot, the school decided that it was time to change. ;

And change we did.

With grade 11, the year of Fortnite came change. We were now in the older half of the senior school. We were on the senior teams, we could actually go out in times other than lunch, and we had our first ever spares. Spikeball became popular, and

new records were set in the Terry Fox Run, with Liam and Josh taking an hour and six minutes to walk the 3 km B run. Some of you gents were elected as House Captains and blessed us with the spirit week video in chapel, which is still critiqued to this’ day. The baseball team managed to win our D1B championship, despite Mr. Rankin thinking that catching a ball with his nether regions was a good idea.

April rolled around and roaring down the pipe came the Grade 11 Outdoor Ed trip. The journey started a day early, on Sunday, after the Boeing 737s were grounded. This would not stop us! Somehow, someone decided that it would be a good idea to take the scenic route to Strathcona Park Lodge. Flying to Calgary then pulling an all nighter to get to Edmonton then to Strathcona, or from sleeping in Calgary, to Edmonton, then eventually meandering in the general direction of Strathcona, or even just flying straight from Calgary to Strathcona, no matter which direction the three groups went, there were adventures each way. That being said, the scenic route is sometimes better than the direct route. If we took the direct route, I would not have had the opportunity to get Boston Pizza with some of the Boys in Edmonton, James Fell would not have lost a bet to sleep outside on the porch, and I would not have had the pleasure to continue tradition and sit beside Luc Mazzuca on the plane. For those of you who don’t know, every time since grade 7, when we have gone on a plane as a school, Luc Mazzuca and I have always managed to get placed next to each other on the plane, which has somehow been four times and counting.

The lodge itself was a blast . I’m not sure anyone, with the possible exception of James Blanco and his dislocated knee, or Gavin who decided it was a good idea to punch a window, or Zach Webster's roommates who had the privilege... of seeing him in his biking spandex, did not have the greatest time.

It is also commendable to note that Mr. Chow’s severe case of food poisoning and lost luggage would not stop him and Mr.

Donnelly from singing “Shallow” by Lady Gaga by the campfire.

And of course we will not forget Roots, Bensen, or any of the other amazing guides that we had over the years.

Grade 12, the year of Minecraft, was potentially the best

year of them all. Despite the year getting cut short, that did not stop the memories from coming. I certainly remember plans for a pit stop at the Vegas Strip on the way back from a school sanctioned San Francisco trip making Mr. Donnelly very nervous for his future, and Liam’s excitement when the Steamers improved, going 0-8 before the All star game... and then 5 for 8 after the break. Grad skip day was definitely a banger, and people tell me that the grade 9 trip to Arrowhon was just as good the second time. So just remember, that

whatever you take away from this year, 30 years from now, the history books will be talking about the year of 2020, and you can say that you lived history.

As many of you know, earlier I sent out a survey asking for your favourite memories of highschool, and in addition to electing the headboy, thanks Eric, I just want to quote Matteo here who said that his favourite moment was, and I quote, “After an outside BBQ lunch Mr. Evans was playing soccer on the turf and then kicked a soccer ball at Hepner’s head because he was on his phone”, and when I asked Mr Evans about this just the other day, he said that “I was targeting his phone and nailed it, that’s my story and I am sticking to it!” And that should tell you everything you need to know about RSGC. The moral of the story, don’t forget the journey because the journey is often better than the destination, In 20 years, you won't remember the grade 10 math test you failed or the

exact mark you got on your final physics exam, but you will remember the good things that happened along the way,

the friends you made, and the moments I spent literally this entire speech talking about. Olaf said that some people are worth melting for, and I would definitely consider each and everyone of you to be one of those people. Now gents, the door is that way... The door to new beginnings... Once we walk through that door, we will cement our places in history, and we will finally be known as the alum of the graduating class of 2020, the class who lived through a global pandemic and ae anaes to graduate high school.

Thank you.

Head Prefect Ben Mazan delivered a version of this speech aspart of the video celebration of the Class of 2020, first streamed on Wednesday, June 10, 2020.

I would like to thank all of my friends, and family alongside the support coming through the school that has pushed me to perform my best and have fun for these four years

Id like to thank everyone for making my time at RSGC so amazing. While I am looking forward to what is next I will truly miss this place.

Reilly Carson

To my teachers, thank you. I feel like I have formed real, meaningful bonds with each and every one of you. This thank you extends particularly to the Science department, for without them I may not have chosen to continue pursuing science at a university level. Further, thank you to all the staff who took the time to lead and facilitate

all of my extracurricular activities.

To my parents, thank you for sacrificing so much in order to give me such an amazing education. I don’t think I'll - ever know how lucky I am.

To all current students reading this, you won't believe how quickly high school will end, enjoy it.

Monday morning practices are optional, but so is winning.

It’s crazy to think that I’ve been at this school for 10 years. Walking through the doors in September to see my friends and teachers, has become a consistent part of my life. I don’t think my brain has fully processed the fact that this is something I will never do again. I will never again walk through the back doors at 7 AM, sit in Mr. Doerksen’s classroom, and get in that last minute studying before a first period test. Never again will I sprint

out of the chapel, only to find that somehow there is already a line at retail. I will miss all of these things. Same goes for my time back in the Junior School, though most of it was spent in Ms. Kirkland’s office. I will miss the cross country meets, the ultimate frisbee games and the ski races. I will miss ball hockey on the tarmac, soccer on the turf and manhunt everywhere else. I will miss the classroom discussions, the lunchtime conversations and seeing recognizable faces line the halls. Most of all, I will miss the camaraderie, both student to student, and teacher to student. The friendly exchange of “sir” in every interaction. Yes, I will miss all of these things, however, I am also grateful to my parents for allowing me to experience them, as they are memories and experiences I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

“Wait, that was the freaking warmup?” - Me

It feels like our year is coming to an abrupt and early end, like Max’s halloween party. Although, I’ve only been here for two years, I’ve met a group of brothers that Ill know for a lifetime. I’d like to thank Ms. Hart for being an amazing advisor, and a great teacher. It’s been a ride, until next time fellas, cheers.

You can't get much out of what you've given your least to.

I have learned many life lessons at RSGC such as if you play go fish at a Boston pizza at nine in the morning ona school trip you might end up sleeping outside. ;

“The boys were beanin’.”

Dear RSGC, I'd like to thank you for all the joy, opportunity and care you have provided me with throughout the years. It seems like just yesterday I was playing with butterflies in Ms. Ennis’s grade 3 class and now I find myself in the final months of grade 12 in pretty much the same situation. Thank you for making my school experience feel more like a second home rather than just a classroom. To my parents, I’d like to thank you for all the sacrifices you've made to allow me to attend a school I value so much. It has been an incredible journey to the person I am today and I couldn't have done it without you two by my side. Finally, to the boys, it’s safe to say that together we have created memories that will last for a lifetime. I am forever grateful for the time we have spent

together and I am proud to call you my friends. “Find your balance” -Travis Scott

“The boys were beanin”

This year ended a little differently than most. A global pandemic gave everyone loads of time to be productive.

However, I wouldn't say my single Warzone win is much of an accomplishment. Yet I did get a couple of great back workouts in by carrying David Dip, Ben Dreger and Connor von Teichman to some Fortnite Dubs. In all

seriousness, I would like to thank all my teachers and classmates for making me feel at home each and every day I came to school. Huge shoutout to Ms. Dickinson, Ms. Jessani, and Mr. Donnelly, I probably wouldn't enjoy.

Math or Econ without all of you.

I just want to thank all the people that helped me get to where I am today. I want to give special thanks to my family for always standing by my side. To all of my teachers for being great advisors and mentors in both in school and out of school matters; and finally to my whole grade of Georgians who from day one brought me

in with open arms and welcomed me to their wonderful community. My time has come to find a random park bench in High Park and to start asking every girl passing by two questions. And as the legendary MC Subin once

said “the door is that way”, I don’t know what it holds on the other side but I’m ready to go through.
