A SOUVENIR RECORD OF THE INAUGURAL YEAR
ALMIGHTY GOD, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER,
WE THANK YOU FOR THIS SCHOOL BUILDING AND FOR ALL THE
BLESSINGS OF THIS HAPPY DAY. GRANT TO ALL WHO TEACH AND LEARN
IN STRATHCONA-TWEEDSMUIR SCHOOL THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND
GRACE, THAT WE MIGHT LEARN TO REVERENCE TRUTH, DESIRE GOOD-
NESS AND REJOICE IN BEAUTY. BLESS THIS BUILDING AND GRANT THAT
CHARITY, UNDERSTANDING AND TRUE LEARNING MAY FLOURISH AND
WE PRAY THAT STRATHCONA-TWEEDSMUIR SCHOOL MIGHT BE A PLACE
WHERE WE SEEK TO DO YOUR WILL AND TO WALK IN YOUR WAY.
WE ASK THESE PRAYERS IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST WHO IS THE
ONE FOUNDATION AND THE CHIEF CORNER STONE OF ALL THAT WE DO.
Rev. Rodney Andrews
The Invocation at the Official Opening of Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School,
Okotoks, Alberta, September 18, 1971.
(This address was given by the Chairman of the
Board of Governors, Mr. E. David Dover, at the
School Closing Exercises, ]une 17, 1972.)
We have all, if we were fortunate, been in-
spired at one time or another in our childhood or
youth, to aspire to excellence.
John W. Gardner in a book entitled "Excel-
"What we must reach for is a conception of
perpetual self-discovery, perpetual reshaping to
realize one's best self, to be the person one
Why is it that a large number of young people
never fulfil their potentialities.
The responsibility for failure cannot be laid at
the feet of the schools alone. The family, the
church, and the neighbourhood must work to-
gether to ensure the best possible climate for the
development of our young people.
The phrase "nuclear family", coined by 20th
century sociologists, is becoming more and more
common. It brings to mind the many pressures
that society is exerting on the individual family;
pressures which divide its members and in some
cases threaten its very existence.
The family is the smallest of social institutions,
but it holds first rank in importance. We must not
let it dissolve; not only because of its national
importance or its religious significance, but be-
cause by its dissolution every human being would
lose some core of himself.
We, as parents, are responsible for the leader-
ship, inspiration and the well-being of our chil-
In the coming year I would urge all of our
parents to become more familiar with the opera-
tions of the school.
I urge you to attend school functions and,
where possible, contribute your thoughts and
ideas for their betterment.
I urge you to become acquainted with your
child's teachers and together with them establish
a growing and constructive programme for your
Like the prophet of old, could I remind you
boys and girls, your parents, your brothers and
sisters, grandparents and other family members
need you, your affection and concern. Your
school needs you and you will only receive from
it in proportion as you give to it.
Today is the last day of school and summer
holidays are ahead. Holidays are meant for having
fun; for developing hobbies, making and enrich-
ing friendships, and browning under a summer
I hope you will all be able to unleash your-
selves and have a small roar this summer. The
only stipulation could be that you must be a
creative participator in this activity rather than a
spectator. Your adventure should not be handed
to you through a television set or from the re-
served seats of a sports stadium. 1 would not, of
course, suggest that you all would enjoy a course
in aircraft pylon racing. Your enterprise could be
anything from sports, mountain climbing, or
working, to bee-keeping, reading, bird watching,
or rewarding crafts. Whatever you choose it
should give you a personal sense of adventure.
The ultimate goal, our final maturity, will perhaps
be reached when we can approach all of life with
this sense of adventure.
It is fitting today to recognize and commend
Our headmaster, Mr. Sandy Heard, deserves a
true vote of thanks for the enthusiasm and drive
with which he has directed the school in its first
year of operation in these new surroundings.
We are fortunate to have a group of extremely
fine teachers. Their dedication to their students is
the very foundation upon which we stand. To
them may I say, never be tempted to think that
you are taken for granted.
I would like to congratulate those students who
will win prizes and all of those who have done
their best. For those whose efforts have fallen
short of their ambitions I can only say, you may
have lost a battle but you haven't lost the war. A
courageous effort can be as valuable as an easy
We have seven grade 12 girls graduating this
year. The Board of Governors would like to wish
them every success and happiness and commend
them for the leadership they have displayed. I am
sure Mrs. McWilliam will be especially proud of
their efforts and, in my opinion, Margaret, their
success reflects your extreme dedication and re-
sponsibility to the teaching profession.
Ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys, let us
band together in the adventure of developing
Strathcona-Tweedsmuir, a school which is dedi-
cated to excellence.
For our part, I am sure I speak for all the

administrators for the school. We can succeed,
all of us together, in building a groat Canadian

benefit of their fellow man. They were given a
special kind of education at Strathcona-Tweeds-
muir and you will find them in all kinds of
different roles but you can be sure they will be
using their talents for the good of the community
that they are in. They will be changing the world,
making it better and making the lives of the

What can I say? The usual role of the head-
master at this auspicious occasion is to report
on the year's activities — tell you about the
academic honors won, the athletic accomplish-
ments of our students, the extra-curricular acti-
vities we took part in and plans for next year.
It is also customary to thank the many individuals
who have helped make the year the success it
was; those who have donated time, money,
gifts and counsel. I do not choose to do this this
year, not because my gratitude on behalf of the
school is lacking or not whole hearted, not be-
cause we haven't won honors in many fields of
endeavor, not because all our staff hasn't given
more than has been required of them, but be-
cause we have accomplished something else that
is unique in schools. We have accomplished a
family relationship. We have become members
of this family by working terribly hard for some-
thing we all believe in and thus it would prob-
ably embarrass us all to pat each other on the
back and publicly proclaim what good fellows
I choose on the other hand to speak to the
younger members of our family and perhaps
what I say will have meaning for us all.

We must be able to say "Our graduates have

All of us are constantly inundated with a
picture of gloom and doom. Too much pollution.
Too many births. Too many deaths. Too many
people. Too much crime. Too many wars. This
has had a tremendous impact on us all, but
particularly on you, the young people. Some
young people have met this picture by opting
out, dropping out, escaping. But not you. You
have accepted the challenge of your world, just
as the parents and friends of this school accepted
a challenge. They built a school. You are going
to build a world.
Seeing how this school was built is a great
lesson. Nobody carried a placard protesting the
old schools. Nobody even threw a bomb — there
were several close calls. There were no sit-ins or
strikes and not even one student's card was
burned. Yet the old schools have given way to
the new. This is because people legally got to-
gether and used their minds and their resources
and made a change. Because we live in a country
that believes in free enterprise, it could happen.
It could happen without the government giving
the money. It didn't happen in one day, or one
week or one year but with patience and per-
severance, and hard work we are here today.
You can do the same. There are many things
in the world that need changing, that need im-
proving. You can do these things.
We will be watching you just as you were
watched by little eyes and big ears all year. You
set a fine example. We know we will continue to
be proud of you.

OUR TRIP TO MRS. DOVER'S
On September 28, the Grade 5 and 6 girls,
along with Mr. Bauman's class, the Grade 5 boys,
went to Mrs. Dover's house in the country. It
was a beautiful place surrounded by lovely
bushes and some very beautiful flowers.
We went to Mrs. Dover's by bus and on the
way there I saw some very interesting things
such as dairy cows, ducks and flowers. Being
autumn, the trees looked fascinating with the
lovely coloured leaves gently falling to the
While we were on our tour around Mrs.
Dover's house, we saw an amazing sun dial.
Mrs. Dover showed us how the sun makes it
work. I thought it was one of the most interest-
ing things there.
I enjoyed this lovely "Nature Field Trip" and
I am sure that my classmates did too and we
thank Mrs. Dover for her kindness. I hope we
can go to see her and her lovely house again
Leslie Oughton, Grade 5G
I have had quite a bit of fun this year at
school. We went on an eight mile hike, field
trips and a camping trip. The first field trip was
to Mrs. Dover's house. She showed us her
house and garden and we had lunch there.
The second trip was to the Glenbow Foundation.
We saw a movie about the Plains Indians and
we saw a lot of Indian weapons such as bows,
arrows and spears. The third trip was to the
Planetarium. There was a very big projector
there which could make you feel like you were
turning around when it turned. It could also
project different colours onto the screen. Our
fourth trip was to Heritage Park where we saw
the old town and the ranch house.
On our camping trip we went on a lot of
hikes and saw some prairie dogs. The Highwood
River was very high and dirty. You couldn't
see six inches beneath the water. We had two
water fights and every night we roasted marsh-
So, when you really think about it, this has
been a pretty good year.
David Fathi, Grade 5B
I have never had such fun in all the years I
have gone to school and I feel next year's grade
5 will be lucky too.
Dan McWilliam, Grade 5B
CARDINAL COACH LINES LIMITED
RIDING ON A BUS
I ride on bus E to STS. My bus driver is a
lady. The teacher on our bus is Mrs. Stiles.
I get off at the last stop and get on at the
first stop. Sometimes Mr. Heard comes on the
bus after school to look over us. Mr. Ditchburn
does too. My teacher goes on bus C.
Jodi Pisko, Grade 2G
I like it at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School because there is always something to do.
Debra Juchem, Grade 4G
Mrs. Kerr takes us for PE. She always has
something new for us to do. At the beginning
of the year we ran a mile every PE period.
When winter came Mrs. Kerr taught us how to
snowshoe and skate. When it got more than
fifteen degrees below we came inside and had
gymnastics. When we entered a contest every-
body in our school did well.
Once the weather became warm again we
took walks to the pond and later on Mrs. Kerr
took us tor swimming lessons in Calgary. They
were really good.
Debra Juchem & Leanne Oughton
THE HUTTERITE COLONY
On May 25 the Grade 6 boys and the Grade 7
girls set off for the Hutterile colony at Brant.
We stopped at the High River Park to eat lunch.
After lunch some of us played baseball while
others played on the swings. The busdriver
honked his horn and we all piled in the bus.
The next part of the drive was boring so we
livened it up by singing songs.
At last we arrived at the colony. Mr. and Mrs.
Gross showed us through their home. Their
home was plain, but it sure was clean! We saw
their horses, cows and the feed lot. By this time
some of us had made friends with a few of the
The Hutterites have about 6,000 chickens in
small cages. All those chickens in cages is quite
a sight. Then we looked at the rows and rows
The Hutterites have quite modern machinery
such as the rock picker which takes rocks off
the fields. They have five combines and four
trucks (but no cars).
We then went to the school where the
children sang a song for us. The adults had
prepared a bite to eat. This consisted of coffee,
water, bread and jam. The bread and jam, being
homemade, tasted delicious!
Then, again, we jumped in the bus, said good-
bye and left for school. One thing about the
Hutterites, they pay no taxes and will take up
arms against no one. I am sure everyone enjoyed
our trip and is hoping to visit the colony
Russell Gregory, Grade 6B
HAVING LUNCH AT THE POND
After gym one day Grade 3 had lunch at the
pond. We sat down quietly and saw the water
move in a V shape. Then we waited quietly for
a while and we saw a beaver. We watched him
and then we went down to the hill to get a
closer look. He came up closer, almost to the
side of the shore where we were. Then he dove
into the water. We waited but he didn't come
out so we went back to school.

STS BACKPACKERS TAKE TO THE MOUNTAINS
JUNE 18-22, 1972
THE BOYS' TRIP
Backpackers: — Mr. Schmit, Mr. Nelson, Mr.
Seeger, Mr. Bauman.
McNiven, Sherlock, Marks, Pea-
cock, Atkinson, Thurston, Locke,
Louisy, Thuston, White.
June 18 — Arrived at Highwood Crossing at
10:00 a.m. Enthusiasm not damp-
ened by falling rain. Made it to
Fitzsimmon's Creek after making
our own trail and after being ma-
rooned in a series of beaver dams!
All well soaked. Six miles later,
4:30 p.m., camp struck at the foot
of Mount Armstrong.
At 5:00 p.m. enjoyed a chicken
supreme entree, beef stew, a des-
sert of sardines.
June 19 — Warm rays of sunshine brought
camp to life at 8:00 a.m. Clear,
crisp air and an inspiring view of
the valley greeted one.
After a breakfast of apple sauce,
porridge and hobo-brewed coffee
we were on the trail again. Had
lunch at Baril Creek and hiked on
to a small lake below Fording
Pass where we made camp.
Louisy caught a nice brook trout.
June 20 — Mr. Nelson's contribution of dried
apricots to the porridge helped to
make breakfast more palatable.
Using campsite as a base we hiked
to Fording Pass. A tough hike. The
view from the summit was fan-
tastic — glaciers and snow-capped
peaks. Standing there on the Al-
berta-B.C. border we wondered
how the pioneers felt on reaching
this spot. Amazement, enjoyment
were written on the faces of all.
What a magnificent spectacle be-
fore us. Rain interrupted the re-
turn journey for a while but no
one seemed to mind. Discovered
many fossils and some cairns
which were of interest to all.
June 21 — The long hike yesterday left all
tired and we did not hit the trail
till 11:00 a.m. Crossed the Baril
and headed south. Took a few
wrong trails, thanks to poor mark-
ing, but returned to Etherington
for camp. Got the tents up just in
time. Down came the rain. Louisy,
Atkinson, Peacock and White
built a very good shelter of pine
boughs. We remained dry. Rain
cleared and after supper Mr. Nel-
son and Mr. Bauman hiked off to
check the mileage to the highway.
The usual evening inspection of
fires and tents over we bedded
down for what proved to be the
coldest night of the trip.
Mr. Schmit tried to roll over in
his sleeping bag only to find the
bag frozen to the roof of the tent.
Fortunately, as the morning wore
on it became warmer and even
June 22 — Camp finally came to life at 9:30
a.m. and we hit the trail around
11:30. An hour later we reached
the highway and had lunch on
the bridge at Etherington Creek.
Five miles of hiking and the trip
would be over. Already plans for
the next trip were being discussed.
Shortly after reaching Cataract
Creek at 2:30, Mr. Ray arrived and
our convoy of drivers. Our first
great backpacking trip was over.
The backpackers extend a big thankyou to Mr.
and Mrs. Atkinson, Mrs. Kirkham, Mrs. Schmit
and Mrs. Seeger, Mrs. Nelson, Mr. and Mr^.
McNiven and Mr. Ray.
Mr. Schmit on the way up to Fording Pass.
at 2:30 we began walking around
the lake and made 4 miles when
down came the rain so we camp-
ed beside a creek. Had a horrible
dinner — chicken stew. Don't
bother buying it if you go back-
Rain, rain, rain and just as we
were packing up. The trail was
uphill most of the time and very
muddy. We wore our raincoats
most of the day. We were forced
to spend an hour sheltering under
a tree and we were soaked, right
down to our boots.
Crossed a creek 13 times. Have
34 more crossings to go!
We built a huge fire and spent
about 4-5 hours around it literally
drying out. Wet tent, wet sleeping
DIARY II — THE GIRLS' TRIP
Backpackers: — Mr. and Mrs. Domoney, Miss
Veta Davis, Marj Bliek, Jane Hut-
chison, Stephanie Larson.
June 18 — Our hike began at the end of the
parking lot at Lake Minnewanka.
Cool, sunny weather just right for
hiking. We stopped for lunch by
a creek and we were all fairly hot
and had sore backs!
Walked about ten miles before
we made camp and for dinner
we had steak with mixed vege-
tables followed by apple sauce.
Before going to bed some of the
girls washed their hair in the lake.
June 19 — After breakfast, around 11:00 a.m.
we began walking. It was hard on
the feet as we walked over a lot
of loose rocks and we were soon
complaining of sore feet and
ankles. The weather was great.
The trail was easy enough but
wading across a very cold river
was hardly comfortable. We found
a beautiful spot by the lake and
made camp. Had a delicious chili
June 20 — Ankles were very sore this morn-
ing. Mr. and Mrs. Domoney went
on an 11 mile return hike to the
park boundary. The rest of us
stayed at the campsite. However,
June 22 — The hardest day of all — 36 creeks
with a temperature of between
35° and 37°. Some we waded
through barefoot, others we cross-
ed on logs and stones and others
we sloshed through, boots and
We trekked through solid branch-
es, snow, mud, and that water.
In 6 hours we walked 5 1 /2 miles
and didn't stop for lunch. The
trip was over and what a trip.
Thank heaven the iast mile meant
hiking down a road.
JACK KRUSCHE RECALLS 1971CANOE TRIP
This year at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir marked
nning oi a great new era for the school.
\ot only did our debaters compete with con-
siderable success but our school hosted the
provincial debating championship in March.
In November a group of interested debaters
attended a Workshop at Bowness High School
in Calgary. Here we were introduced to the
fundamentals of public speaking and the prep-
aration of impromptu speeches.
We spent months practising our newly
acquired skills and researching the topic for
our next debating competition, the provincial
eliminations at Lord Beaverbrook High School,
Calgary. The topic was "That there should be
restrictions on further U.S. investment in Can-
ada's natural resources." Our teams consisted
of Janice Heard and John Knebles, Dick Sherlock
and Alex McNiven, Pamela Heard and Calvin
McClary, and John Brown and Harvey Locke.
Our teams won first, second and third placings
in the novice eliminations. John Knebles was
named top novice speaker of the competition.
Our three successful teams had won their way
to the provincial championships.
March 18, the day of the provincial champion-
ships, came around all too quickly. Gathered
at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir were 96 contestants
representing 28 schools from across the province
of Alberta. As well as the large number of con-
testants there were more than 100 judges in
attendance and many observers. What a great
day for STS! All our teams performed /veil and
one made it to the quarter finals. But those
teams from McNally were murder! Despite the
fact that our teams did not make it to the grand
final, John Knebles emerged as the second top
novice speaker in the championship and sub-
sequently represented Alberta as an observer at
the National Debating Seminar at Fort Saskatch-
ewan in May. Winners of the Strathcona-Tweeds-
muir Debating Trophy and the Open Champion-
ship were Tory Kirby and Don Whyte of Central
Memorial High School. Tory, a former student
and head prefect of Strathcona, was a founding
student of our school's debating club.
On behalf of all the members of the Strath-
cona-Tweedsmuir Debating Club I would like
to express our sincere thanks to Mr. T. B. Hewitt,
Chairman of the Board of Governors during 1971,
for his encouragement, interest, and assistance.
I would also like to thank all members of the
faculty who very generously gave us time to
debate and then contributed their own time to
judging at the championships. We pay tribute
to Mr. Ditchburn, our coach, for his efforts on
our behalf; for all the advice, assistance and en-
thusiasm he communicated to us. We congratu-
late him on the magnificently organized pro-
vincial championships, "the smoothest operation
in Alberta debating to date." Hail coach and we
look forward to an even more successful 1972-73!
Happiness is love.

THE FLOWER SHOP

["hen I had a wonderful idea. Why not start
a flower shop? Other people have big ones so
why couldn't I have a small flower shop in the
I ran home as quickly as I could. As soon as
I arrived home I changed my clothes and ran
out to pick flowers.
I picked roses, daffodils and many other
flowers from our garden. I went inside and put
them in water and then I took them to the
When I had all the flowers arranged, I took
a piece of cardboard and made a sign. It said,
"Come In And Buy Fresh Flowers". I put the
sign outside the gate and after a while people
started coming in to buy my flowers.
The next day I put out the sign again. People
saw the sign and came in but they went away.
I was disappointed and wondered why. I looked
at the flowers and saw the reason. The flowers
were withered and nobody likes withered

THE VOCABULARY OF
SIXTH GRADE BOYS
There are many things we have to learn, but
i think we can pretty generally agree that learn-
ing to talk is one of the most important.
All of us begin by babbling, but fortunately,
as we grow older, our vocabulary goes through
some changes. For example, we spend quite a
few years learning that it's right to say I go, but
not I goed! I have gone and I have seen, but not
I have went!
By the time we get to sixth grade, we have
these things fairly well sorted out, but there's
no let-up. Another problem arises. It has to do
with the generation gap. After we have worked
so hard to learn about nouns, verbs, adjectives
and adverbs and all this junk, our parents start
criticizing us for not having a large enough
vocabulary. They actually think we don't know
Now this is just not true at all. We know a
great many words, but we can only use about
half of them in front of our parents. This is a
real disadvantage and under these circumstances
it's no wonder that they misjudge the extent of
our vocabularies, especially the verb forms.
There are a lot of verbs plus noun phrases
which we use among ourselves every day that
parents just may not have any idea about. That
is because we use them selectively — which
means when parents are not around! It's called
group language and it has a large and colourful
vocabulary. This language is very common among
sixth grade boys.
It should also be noted that many of our
words tend to be short. I'm not quite sure why
this is. It's just the way they come and I under-
stand that some of them have been coming that
way for several hundred years now. Perhaps it's
in order to get ideas stated as quickly as pos-
Anyway, we do talk a lot, we don't just giggle
and snort as some people seem to think. So
with that much speech time and all short words
there are many many words in action. Action is
the proper term too as many of the words we
use are action words. Space, unfortunately, does
not permit me to give specific examples!
I hope, dear reader, that I have given you
some appreciation of the language achievement
of grade six boys and if I contributed anything
toward greater understanding and admiration
of this group, my efforts will not have been in

Eating up the distance from city to city

Each day it fights the skies in flight.

The waves did splash and the winds did blow
As the world began to fight a foe.

Afraid I was as they went away

But sure enough, again they came,
Sailing down the narrow main.

Beams over a ship in a still dark night,
Over the mountains and over the sea
Brings back memories of that ship to me.

TEACHER LEAVES SCHOOL
By Glen Street
OKOTOKS: Mrs. Helen McLean, the 8B(1) Lan-
guage teacher and School art teacher, announced
today that she is leaving Strathcona-Tweedsmuir
School and retiring from teaching.
The twenty-nine year old teacher announced
the tragic news today during a school assembly.
Later, during an interview, when she was asked
why she was leaving, she said, "My husband
is a heart specialist and after examining me he
was positive that if I taught another year I was
bound to have a heart attack." When asked
what the cause of the heart attack would be
she replied, "Those crazy 8B Ones. They would
give anyone a heart attack. I have exhausted
myself chasing Bob Brennan around the class-
room to beat him. But you know, he lost 300
pounds and I became a star runner in the
process. A lot of people have asked me if I am
quitting teaching to become a champion runner.
I would like to clarify this. No! This is wrong.
I am quitting so that I can become a housewife
and because I am moving to Peterborough,
When asked why she was moving to Peter-
borough, Ontario, Mrs. McLean answered, "Well,
one of my students gave a speech on the Peter-
borough lift locks and it was so interesting I
had to go down and see them for myself. I
talked to my husband about it and used the
speech to persuade him. The persuasion worked
and so we are moving to Peterborough. My
husband is taking the car and I am running."
Among the highlights of the language classes,
according to Mrs. McLean, were Boley's jokes.
The simple application of two rolls of masking
tape took care of those. She was surprised, how-
ever, by Arnold who thought each language
class was one big cocktail party as he smoked
his pen and talked. "I fixed his problem," said
Mrs. McLean, "by buying $23.35 worth of pencils
and making him smoke them all at once. And
do you know he crammed all those pencils into
At the conclusion of the interview, Mrs.
McLean was asked if she was proud of any of
her students. She said, "Yes, I'm Pryde of proud
... I mean I'm proud of Pryde."
Strathcona-Tweedsmuir is faced with a prob-
lem. Where can we find a language teacher who
is a good, fast, long-distance runner to chase
Brennan next year in Grade L )>.
"YOU'VE NEVER SEEN A CAR?"
One day as I was getting out
of my car a man came up.
"Oh," he exclaimed, "what on
earth is that contraption?"
"It's a car," I told him. "A four
cylinder four hundred and
fifty cubic inch, two hundred
horsepower car with power
steering, power brakes and an
automatic stickshift. It's a
1972 Thunderbird with hook-
"Oh," he said, "but how does
"Well," I replied calmly, "the
fuel is pushed into the com-
pression chamber where the
piston is stationary, then the
fuel is blown up by a spark
which pushes the piston out
thereby moving the crank-
shaft which moves the
"Hmm," he said. "What do
you use for fuel?"
"Gasoline", I said, "which is a
product of crude oil which is
extracted from the ground."
"Very interesting," said he as
he climbed back into his fly-
ing saucer to report his find-

The "Spartans" girls' volleyball team was involved in the Foothills division. It consisted ol seven
schools; Claresholm, Vulcan, High River, Okotoks, Nanton and Turner Valley. Out of twenty-seven
games played, we won a total of ten and lost seventeen.
We played two exhibition games during the year, E. P. Scarlett and Central Memorial . . . we won
one and lost the other.
Our team was overwhelmed to be invited to the Okotoks Invitational Tournament in which we
placed third out of eight teams.
In the Foothills finals, we lost the series in Okotoks, and won the series at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir.
However, we lost the title on total games. Altogether we tell it was a very good Inst year.

Yes, it's another first for Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School, and our wins were few and our losses were
many. In fact, we did not make one complete win of a five game series. Towards the end of the season,
we were coming close to that major victory. This progress would not have been possible without our
two patient and faithful coaches, Mr. Breland and Mr. Tajcnar. Our captain was Reid MacDonald.
This year was a bit disappointing but next year we will be back with more spirit and more experi-
ence. Thank you to all who assisted.

Our Junior Girls' Volleyball Team represented our School in the Foothills tournament in High
River. Nine teams competed against one another for the right to represent our division in the South —
Central Alberta finals. Our team played six round-robin games before advancing to the semi-finals.
The highlight of the round-robin games was when we triumphantly defeated Red Deer Lake. They had
previously been undefeated in five years. In the semi-finals, we beat High River two games straight —
that put us in the finals where we lost to Black Diamond in the final game of a best out of three match.
