Cheer for the home team!

North Toronto Post - - Education Guide -

By now, the school year is in full swing. Be­tween mounds of home­work and piles of teenaged anx­i­ety, there’s al­ways the op­por­tu­nity to show some school pride. Be­hold the mas­cots from our lo­cal pri­vate schools, each one em­blem­atic of its school’s spirit. These cud­dly beasts are plucked from all cor­ners of the an­i­mal king­dom, be it Cres­cent’s dopey-but-lov­able wolf, a chip­per bum­ble- bee from Hawthorn or Haver­gal’s très en­thu­si­as­tic al­li­ga­tor. And yes, there is one non-brute in their midst — a knight with a steely gaze — for good mea­sure (thanks, York). So who comes out on top? Well, your school rules; and the rest, yeah, they’re drool­ing. Af­ter all, there’s noth­ing like a gen­tle ri­valry through­out the school year to re­ally bring school chums to­gether.
