Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE UTHBRIDGE HERAtP >973 J-atmil y School children escape convention VICTORIA (CP) Grade 2 children at Lakehill elementary school have escaped the rigid desk and timetable approach to education. Their classroom contains stra- tegically placed work tables, two overstuffed couches, rugs and a dozen soft cushions for sitting on the floor. It also con- tains 64 industrious seven-year- olds who work where and when they want at whatever subject interests them at the moment. And although talking is taken for granted, the noise level seems lower than around the average dinner table. The miracle workers involved are two experienced teachers, Donna Woolliams and Hermione Frey, who believe education should be "child-centred" with Walk-a-thon to aid camp The Lethbridge Fish and Game Junior Forest Wardens and Girl Forest Guards will participate in a 12-mile walk- a-thon Sunday. Registrations will begin at 9 a.m. and the hike will start west of the old Castle River Stam- pede Grounds, ending at the warden's summer camp at Lynx Creek. All funds raised by hik- ers will go toward administra- tion of the Lynx Creek Camp, and entry forms are avialable through Fred Tyrrell at 327- 6853. Mr. Tyrrell, camp director, challenges all-comers to raise the highest total pledge in the walk-a-thon. People wishing to make a contribution are asked to contact him. each student taught whsn he is ready to learn. Their system, called "the in- tegrated means children cover the regular curriculum at their own individual speed. Chil- dren ask for help when they need it and need not listen to teachers explain something they already understand. Every morning, a teacher writes the work to be covered that day on the blackboard. Stu- dents know the work must be done, but their teachers don't care when or where they do it. There is little formal instruc- tion, but each child's work is checked daily and new concepts are taught individually when the student is ready. Each child also has a weekly conference with the teacher and notebooks i arp checked. Teachers keep dally records of each child's work and note i incidents that help evaluate i progress. For example, when 3 child i feels like doing language arts, ha takes a job card outlining the required work. The teachers at first handed out cards varying in difficulty according to the ability of the child, but have found that stu- j dents automatically chose a card at the right level on their own.

Love of horses brings couple together LONDON (CP) Mark An- thony Peter Phillips, the tall Olympic horseman and sol- dier who has captured Eu- rope's most eligible heiress in Princess Anne, will be the fourth commoner to marry into the Royal Family since Princess Margaret, Anne's aunt, wed a society photogra- pher 13 years ago. The lean and handsome Phillips, born 24 years ago in the Colswold hill country southwest England, is a typi- cal son of a moderately businessman and landowner. Academically '-quite good but not noteworthy." as his former school headmaster put it, and by all accounts non- intellectual in his tastes, Mark could ride horseback before he could walk. His interest in horses brought him together with Anne. 22, last year's Eu- ropean champion in the three- dsy riding event. Mark helped capture the team gold imdal for Britain in the 1972 Olym- pics. The Phillips family rarely is photographed without one of their horses or a cluster of dogs, and most of the pictures in their 16th-century manor house at Great Somerford, Wiltshire, are of horses. At the first dinner party Anne and Mark attended to- gether, it is said the sole topic of conversation was horses.

His father and grandfather both held commissions in it. Mark was not academically proficient enough to pass into Sandhurst's Royal Military- Ac a d e m y straight from his athletic prowess was early noted in track and field and at rugby football. Determined on any army career, however, he enlisted in the Royal Greanjackets and soon was selected as promising officer material for training at Sandhurst. Army colleagues describe him as a good officer, much respected by his men. At Christmas he left credit at the mess bar to buy drinks for his troop. Longtime friends know him as a good-natured man with- out many man action though often absent- minded over social engage- ments. "Mark likes a good time, but he's dedicated to his work and said horseman Michael Tucker, a boyhood friend. "He is very vague in general but he's efficient in his own way. He's all there when tilings matter." The Phillips family is not among those long-established "county" families listed in Burke's Landed Gentry, who for generations have lorded it over acres of Sussex, Wilt- shire or Somerset. Mark's forebears include mining engineers from the in- dustrial Midlands and his fa- ther, an expert on pigs, used to farm a modest 367 acres in the Cotswolds before moving into the business world as purchasing director of the Wall's sausage-making firm. SOME ARE ARISTOCRATS But like those other com- inoners who married Princrsss Margaret, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra, Mark has a few aristocratic leaves on the family tree. His uncle on his father's side is married to the sister of the Duke of Norfolk, the man who as Earl Marshal of England organizes royal weddings and other state occasions. Mark's mother, the former Anne Tiarks. belongs to a wealthy banking family of German origin related to the Duke of Bedford. It has been predicted Mark likely will be made an earl to give the Queen's grand- children titles, but he is a man who likes to make his own way. He once said, pre- sumably in relation to his prospects as a royal son-in- law: "I dcn't want to be a duke or a general before I'm 30."
