Our Joint-School BBQ Event was successfully held at Milliken Park in Toronto on June 14, 2009. Over 100 people
    attended and everybody had a great time enjoying the good weather, good food and of course good company. Dr.
    Hinton was at hand to grace the event and helped in the cake-cutting ceremony to celebrate the 20th anniversary of
    QESOSA Ontario. Below is a few selected pictures from the event day and more will follow. Visit this site often as

Third 20th Anniversary Celebration Event - Exploring Ontario (Trip to Camp Stellar)

    We have arranged a 3-day trip to explore Ontario with Dr. Hinton (June 16 - 18). The destination is a beautiful lake-
    front cottage Camp Stellar at Whitestone. Some came for a day-visit. As you can see the images below, it does
    provide a peaceful and quiet atmosphere for Dr. Hinton to relax while others pursue more sporty adventures. Please

                   I was greatly honoured by the warmth of the welcome I received at the 20th anniversary
    celebrations of the Ontario Chapter of the OSA.  It gives me great joy to know that so many of you have
    happy memories of your years at QES and that the education you received there, the wider education
    and not just the academic learning, has stood you in good stead in subsequent years.  I am very happy
    also to see that many of the friendships made at school have lasted over the decades.

            Education should aim at the development of the individual morally, emotionally, intellectually,
    spiritually and in other ways, i.e. at the full development of the individual as a member of society, and
    many of us teachers tried in our various ways to be true to this ideal   Friendship contributes to this
    development and so good friends are very important in our lives.  The older I get the more I appreciate
    the friends I have had and the friends, many of them from QES, who I still have and who contribute
    more than they realise to the continuing development of my life and understanding.

           To conclude this short homily I would like to emphasise that my years in QES formed an important
    part of my own education for, while trying to help in your education, I was myself being educated by your
    successes and failures, your behaviour, your ideas and activities.  I owe you my thanks.

    Arthur Hinton.

Hot off the Press! Greetings from Dr. Hinton!

Mi Ki and Susan Kan was our gracious host who took a bunch of QES schoolmates and Dr. Hinton to their
beautiful home for a "warm up" Welcome Party. Then they had a dinner gathering at a Mississauga
restaurant and everybody had a great time. Here are some of the Welcome Party pictures.
