For instance, there is a brand new program called the Activ- ity Program. Activities range from boys' cooking to girls' shop; yoga to outdoor educat- tion; taxidermy to golf. This program involves-a lot of time off the school grounds. Recently the outdoor education students went on an overnight camping trip to Beaver Lake, This program has not only been a success with the stu- dents but also with teachers. Last month, Paterson pre- sented the musical production, Babes in Arms. It was a smash hit. Not only do the cast mem- bers deserve thanks, but every- one who contributed to the pro- luction. Great school spirit was shown. A lot of school spirit has been toown tills year, particularly at basketball games. But it's not just the games that brings out the spirit. It's the feeling every- one shows that they are proud to be Paterson Students. Paterson's annual carnival will take place on Friday. This has always been a lot of fun. Raffle tickets are being sold for a ten-speed bike. Everyone is invited to attem the carnival and we guarantee you will have fun.

Let me try and give you seme sort of in- sight. At a.m. (sometimes a little earlier) you catch the school bus. Putt, putt! At a.m. you arrive and no one is in sight except your bus .ompanions. Soon, more of your friends irrive and you wait until the ibrary opens. Then again, you may congregate by the stu- lents1 council office wiih your rier.ds. discuss the assign- nents you don't have done and critically evaluate the acting abilities of William Shatner. The 8 a.m. bell rings, the group disbands to go to various classes. Some may depart to iriver training and the perils of parallel parking. There are those in Mr. Fors- ter's class calmly discussing whether Frederick was a dyn- amic character or whether the piece was written in an omnis- cient or limited omniscient point of view. The day akeady appears fulfilling. The a.m. bell rings and everyone reports to their ad visors for attendance check This freedom lasts only 10 min utes, then it's off to French.

Believe it or not, Pat Tanaka and Brenda Morgan managed to dig them up. of Murdoch McKay, said it was thought when the new program was introduced (hat a shakeup was needed to im- prove the learning process. "We saw this as a means to motivate the student for learning, by changing from the traditional lecture ap- proach in the classroom to a system in which the teacher became more involved in the learning process." ;Mr. Forentino said one of Hie most significant results of the changeover has been to reduce the number of students that an individual teacher comes into contact with dur- ing the day. This helps to "hu- manize he said. Under the former arrange- ment, a teacher who taught six or seven classes daily would come in contact with 180 to 200 students. Under the new format, most teachers have no more than 60 students to get to know and to deal with on a personal level. Mr. Forentino said the trimester system also gels away from what he called "the egg-crate whereby students are graded and placed in groups accord- ing to their ability to succeed with the academic program offered by the school, ____ If you're in the market for a car it from the Royal Bank... and we'll pay toward your plates!
