Thanks to Don for sharing this with our school community.</p><p><strong>PSS: 'Farewell but not forgotten'</strong></p><p>We grow up, go to school, wondering what else to do. <br><span style="line-height:1.6;">Making new friends, grade 9, making new trends.<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">For four, five or more years we learn,<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">From teachers, fellow students, and activities to discern.</span><span style="line-height:1.6;">​</span></p><p>The memories are fading, twenty or more years later,<br><span style="line-height:1.6;">The path of life went all over the place, sometimes with the foot down on the accelerator. <br>But the mind, the spirit, the memories as of late are ever so clear,<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">When familiar faces and surroundings this weekend are near.</span></p><p>Sure the things we did may not have been politically correct,<br>However the entire world is changing. What do you expect?<br><span style="line-height:1.6;">After we graduate, while making friends and learning as we go along,<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">T</span><span style="line-height:1.6;">he bond may become weak, and for some reason NOW they are again strong.</span></p><p><span style="line-height:1.6;"></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">We live as young adults, growing older, making life altering decisions, <br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Decisions we regret or cherish, even if they were not our original visions. <br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">This day is oh so bitter sweet,<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">While the end is near, the gathering will be a treat.</span></p><p><span style="line-height:1.6;"></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">At P.S.S. like other places, this school went through many changes,<br>However some things remained intact, even throughout the ages.<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">As our ancestors, the </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Redskins </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">were here,<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Then with strength and </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Pride</span><span style="line-height:1.6;">, the Lions came without fear.</span></p><p><span style="line-height:1.6;"></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">T</span><span style="line-height:1.6;">he school spirit, success and pride,<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Are displayed throughout in red and white. <br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">May we keep our P.S.S. colours bright, <br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">For one last time as we lost the fight.​​</span></p><p><span style="line-height:1.6;"></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Our refuge, our school from youth might be fading away, <br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">But our memories within us are here to stay.<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">We are celebrating 50 years, together with our heads held high.<br></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Thank you everyone, as we all say goodbye.</span></p><p><span style="line-height:1.6;">--------------------------------</span><br></p><p>P.S.S.
