THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE BIZARRE

The Kids Post - - The Post Interview -

THE GOOD: When a lo­cal man fell to the floor at a lo­cal bak­ery gasp­ing for breath, the quick think­ing of

three stu­dents from lo­cal pri­vate schools likely saved

his life. Brank­some Hall stu­dents Morgyn McKer­lie

and Claire Stir­ling and for­mer Bishop Stra­chan

School stu­dent Sa­man­tha Teas­dale put their life­sav­ing skills to good use and earned the trio an award from Toronto

Emer­gency Med­i­cal Ser­vices ear­lier this spring.

THE BAD: Robin Wil­liams, star of pos­si­bly the great­est pri­vate school movie ever: Dead Poet’s So­ci­ety, passed away this Au­gust. Wil­liams in­spired kids ev­ery­where to “find their verse” and will be sorely missed by all. Though this loss has been felt world­wide, as Wil­liams once said, “the pow­er­ful play goes on” and fans ev­ery­where are salut­ing him with a hearty, “O Cap­tain! My cap­tain!”

THE BIZARRE: Toronto French School is one of a rare num­ber of pri­vate schools to in­clude a bona fide prince amongst its alumni. Prince Her­mann Friedrich of Leinin­gen, known around town as Her­mann Leinin­gen, is the younger son of Prince Karl of Leinin­gen and of his wife Princess Marie Louise of Bul­garia. He is re­lated to King Boris III of Bul­garia, King Vic­tor Em­manuel III of Italy and Queen Vic­to­ria of the United King­dom. No word on whether or not Mr. Leinin­gen was also named Prom King, but it’s a good bet.
