THE CLASS OF 98: AN ORANGE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOK

Some Assembly Required

June 03, 1998

Yeah, pep rallies are part of the deal, but we also gather in the stands to learn more about our world--from cultural and ethnic diversity to how to protect ourselves.

Many schools held International Week assemblies, where we saw cultural performances and listened to stories about tolerance.

Cornelia Connelly had a "Back-Off" gathering, where girls learned self-defense, and a forensic pathology lecture was a favorite at St. Margaret's.

But we had fun, too: Girls at Western High beat the guys playing leap-frog and competing in a name-that-tune event in the Battle of the Sexes. Guys threw Barbie dolls at the winners, and Mr. and Mrs. Irresistible were crowned.

And Trabuco High witnessed a man walking on broken glass, drinking kerosene and eating fire, all in the name of unity.
