On Saturday, May 18, the physical fitness, track and field, and tumbling teams travelled to Playland by bus, under the supervision of Mr. Hunken.
The bus left the school at 4:00 p.m., and soon arrived at the Exhibition Grounds. The students had planned to tour the B.C. Building, but unfortunately found it closed.
From there they went to the main attraction, the roller coaster. Everyone had at least one ride on it, some having as many as fifteen. The group then separated and patronized such other attractions as the Tilt-a-Whirl, Aeroplanes, and Goofy Golf.
At 9:00, the students boarded the bus to return. The students had enjoyed themselves and were glad that they had gone. The trip had been planned in appreciation for the students’ participation in the extra activities.
Elections for the next year's Students’ Council executives have been completed and the results are as follows: president, Michael Dickie; vice-president, Mike Lynch; secretary-treasurer, Kathy Booth.
A public speaking contest for the Grade Sevens was held on Friday, May 17 in the gymnasium, from which the following speakers were selected to represent MRJSS at the District competition on Friday, May 24 at Webster’s Corners: Alynn Corinns, Ann Harrison, David Langton, Barbara Trerise.
The track meet-sports day for our school was held on Thursday, May 23, the day being warm and sunny. Regular classes were held in period one, and at the beginning of period two, the students assembled on the field.
After a brief initial ceremony, the students branched out to the various activities. The events ran smoothly, but because of exhaustion among the participants in the half-mile race, this event was held at noon the next day.
The half-mile race was one of the deciding factors in the competition for points between teams two and four.
The final house standings were: House One, 148 points; House Two, 230 points; House Three, 175 points; House Four, 232 points.
