"Your article Too many students [Report on Education, Supplement to the 'Anglican Journal', Nov. 2011, p. 2] brought back memories of my youth. In the 1940s, after completing elementary school in Toronto, the school principal (a Grey Nun from Loretto Abbey) recommended that my parents send me to a vocational school where I could study architectural design and take voice lessons. Instead, my father sent me to a private boys' school where sports were the major activity. There was no art or voice music on the curriculum !" "Today at the age of 83, I have completed 10 Bargello-Parisian wool wall hangings of the Canadian provinces, which I designed on the computer before applying them to needle and yarn. As my personal signature, I wove in the International Code, flags for each province. These emblems can be deciphered easily by sailors and seamen".
