Artifacts (youngtime): Class Photos, vol. 2 – Prince Charles Elementary, 5-6 + extras

What follows are class and extra-circular club/activity photos from Prince Charles Elementary School in Surrey (Whalley), BC, Canada. 

Note: I moved to this school from Harold Bishop in the middle of Grade 4 – i attended Mr. Thiel (who was Principal iirc and also taught a class as a pinch-hitter – something to do with the previous prinipal having a heart attack while chasing errant children…) at Harold Bishop and then Mr. Chandler’s class at Prince Charles – due to the vagaries of photo scheduling, no photo exists.

Note: i was technically closer to Cedar Hills or Senator Reid elementary school but Mom wanted me going to Prince Charles as they had a reputation for being a “top school” with special rigorous programs and activities. I was in a lot of activities (cross-country, band, chess, indoor track, library, science fair) but not sure if this was the case. Regardless, i won *all* the prizes there

Annotation re: Grade 6:  i remember this being a fun year and i recall a load of these folks. And whoa, a lot of “middle part” hair. I lived at 12310 95th ave which was a dead-end and featured a great area for street hockey games). Cedar Hills and Senator Reid schools were both closer but i attended Prince Charles Elementary as it (apparently) featured more extra-circulars and advanced programs and walked to school about 40 minutes.

Grade 5 in 1980-81, Mr. Reimer

Annotation re: Grade 5: scant recollection of this year aside from Mr. Reimer being a serious and thoughtful teacher, primarily for science topics.

Note: Grade 7 is missing, this was Mr. Tiffenbach’s class and the year i won *every* award possible including the Citizenship Award, Run for Fun, and the Science Fair (Rushmore/Tenenbaum-esque :)).
