Printed on bond paper, this Provincial Normal Schools standard form records the student teacher's practicum lesson to a class in a particular subject, thus the title, Lesson Topic. In this example, Miss Battersby successfully completed teaching the arithmetic lesson based on calculating the area of circles using a mathematical formula to a Grade 7 class. Because it is unclear where Miss Battersby undertook her practicum, the "Critic Teacher" who signed the form could have a Normal School faculty member or a teacher at a Model School class or a teacher in another school. The date and time of the practicum lesson are given. Also of note, the form itself, having been designed in November 1928 with 100,000 printed at that time.

A collection of shot glasses given to graduates. Each glass has the year of graduation screened onto it.
In the Spring of 1954, the previous year's graduates, in concert with SAC (Students' Administrative Council), presented a "RYE '54" shot glass to each member of the class at their graduation dance. The "old" alumni filled each glass with an appropriate libation (Rye) and toasted the new alumni. While this first ceremony was conducted just for fun, the idea caught on. The filling of the glasses stopped when the number of graduates swelled in the 1960's, but the glasses continued to be handed out to graduates until 1993.
