how many different schools did you go to?

what was the shortest time you attended one school for?

what was the longest time you attended one school for? how many friends from that school (the longest), do you still have in your life today?

did you ever attend saturday school? (i.e. chinese school, hebrew school, italian school). what did you learn in saturday school?


i've attended 5 different schools in my life (nursery school, reesor park public school, william berczy public school, marham district high school, the university of western ontario).

the shortest time i was at a school was 4 years (reesor park public).

the longest time i was at a school was 5 years (markham district high school).

my closest friends today are the ones i attended highschool with. my business partner and i have been friends with since grade 3.

i never attended saturday school. i attended sunday school, if that counts. i learned about jesus.

1. preschool : little mountain. my brother managed to get his head stuck in some grate and then smeared butter on his head and called firemen and whatnot to get him out. I recall having peed in my snowpants one time before being able to make it in. then getting a pair of loaner jeans. I wore cordouroy overalls sometimes.

2. grade school : elizabeth ziegler public school + hl mcquarrie enrichment school. *


EZ was interesting, it's one of the older schools in this area, built in 1925 or something. They don't build them like that anymore, multiple floors and whatnot. I remember going back a couple years back to just see what it's l ike, and the halls aren't quite as cavernous as I remember them being.

3. middle school : centennial public school

4. high school : waterloo collegiate institute. strong academic reputation, interesting mix of people (streamed from relatively blue collar and relatively white collar areas of the region...a contrast I don't think a lot of people get in metropolitan areas, where people seem to be from the same socioeconomic background).

5. university : university of waterloo. proud to be a warrior.

for a while was in the bengali school my mom had started up on saturdays/sundays ...can speak bengali no problem but can't really read it

I don't really keep in touch with friends from grade school, because I skipped a grade and ended up going in middle school before them. As well, the grade school we were at had kids from two distinct geographical areas, who were shunted into different middle schools and then high schools.

I keep in touch with some friends from high school, but for the most we've gone in different directions.

Like Liz I'd say my closest friends are ones I made outside the context of school. I am however envious of places like Western or Laurier where it seems more like the prototypical college social environment. High school was like that for me. Waterloo being a co-op school, there is a tendency for disconnection between peeps.

Pebble Hill Elementry (Vancouver, BC) - Up to grade 2?
Bayview Glen - Grades 3-10
Robert Land Academy - 11-OAC
Queen's - 1 year

RLA was three years of hell... one of the happiest days of my life was driving down that dirt road knowing I never had to go back there again.

Queen's was fun but I wasn't really in the right headspace to be at University at that point, especially after spending the preceeding three years at a shitty all boys military school.

:cool:
