Cheer for the home team!
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.
