M.R.S.S.S. Highlights

Thursday, May 14, 1964

The Spring Prom, final social of the year, was held on Friday evening, May 8. Prom King and Queen were Greg Sharpe and Carol Lizzee. Approximately 150 people attended.

Through the efforts of social convener Jennifer Johnston and her committees, the gym was furnished in cabaret style and gaily decorated with many colorful streamers. Refreshments were also more varied than at previous socials.

Providing the music were The Nocturnals, with occasional help from Messrs. Joslin and Quigley.

Students at the social enjoyed themselves, and Principal D. A. Voth complimented students and committees on their organization of the social.


MRSSS, on May 22, will be repeating its very successful Practical and Fine Arts Exposition. Food, music, decorations, usherettes, and guides will all feature this year’s international theme. The Industrial Arts, Home Economics, Art and Commerce departments will have displays illustrating the scope and effectiveness of work in these departments.

Two shows, one at 7 p.m. and one at 9 p.m., will feature gymnastics, fashions, and music.

The exposition is designed as a family affair to begin with a supper at 5:30 p.m. of different foreign foods following which the smaller children may be left with the free babysitting service while the adults and older children attend the 7 p.m. show.

The International Restaurant will operate continuously from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m. so latecomers can take in the displays, have, supper, and catch the 9 p.m. show.

A special demonstration of interest will be given in Room 21. A display of various stages of fibreglassing will background an actual demonstration of applying a fibreglass finish. The application will be made at 8:15 and the final touches applied after the 9:00 show to allow the necessary set-up time.

Last year over 1200 people attended the exposition and improvements and changes merit every one of those returning and bringing friends.
