Excerpt from The St. Andrew's College Review: Christmas, 1917

There is an element in most men which gives them a feeling of peculiar attachment for that which they possess in common with others. Companionship possessions, if one may be permitted to use the expression, invariably create in men worth while a feeling of regard, which naturally develops into affection and loyalty. Are not the individuals home town, his home province, his native country, more to him than all others of their kind?

The average boy knows his school is the best. He shares with pride in her scholastic honours, helps to produce her athletic victories, and enjoys satisfaction and honour in the achievements of her "old boys."

To endeavour to account for the existence of this element in the character of most men is not within the purpose of this article. Suffice it to say that its existence is one of the finer facts of human nature, and, that it is one of the most commendable characteristics of schoolboy nature, that the average boy is loyal to those possessions which he enjoys in company with his fellows, of which possessions his school life should be by no means the least.

The expression, school loyalty, probably has meaning for us, though the word "loyalty" is frequently used somewhat loosely. As related to school life we have no English word to convey just what is meant. The French call it "esprit de corps," and this expression is not unknown in the school life of our Anglo-Saxon world. However, when speaking to the Canadian boy of loyalty to his school, one likes to think of the word "loyalty" as akin in meaning to faithfulness, which in turn means the condition of being full of faith. The loyal boy is, himself, full of faith in his school and in turn is filled with the faith which his school has in him.

For there is undoubtedly a mutual exchange of benefit in school loyalty.
