AIDIA — The title of our yearbook — is the Spartan Greek word for education, 


The students of Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School 
would like to dedicate this tenth edition of PAIDIA 
to the memory of Marti McKay. 

Marti joined us last year, and, although she 
was somewhat of a latecomer to our School Family, 
she soon became "one of the gang" because of her 
friendly nature and willingness to join in. 

Marti was a most talented young lady. In 1980, 
and again, in 1981, she was the winner of the Locke 
Poetry Contest. In this yearbook, we have devoted 
two pages to some of Marti' s poems. 

We will always remember Marti as a person 
whose friendly attitude rewarded each and every 
one of us with many happy moments. She made a 
very large contribution to the School Family, 
enriching and adding much vitality to us all. 
Her cheerful approach to life made her many friends, 
friends who shall miss her. 

For many of us, having lost a friend is a 
sad experience. Although it would be impossible 
to try to express how much we miss Marti, and how 
much we grieve for Marti' s family, there is, 
perhaps, a small measure of consolation in that 
the empty space left by Marti will always be 
partially filled with many happy memories. Marti 
herself was such a happy person, and she gave so 
much happiness to everyone around her.

Headmasters Message 

It is interesting for me to look back on ten years of Strathcona-Tweedsmuir 
and to see where we have been. There seems to have been an underlying idea that has 
permeated the School, one of those hard to define qualities that has put a mark on 
the School and the people who attended it. That characteristic is individuality. 

Each person at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir is an individual and the contribution 
that each person makes to the School is an individual one. The most obvious example 
is our teachers. The contribution that each teacher makes can not only be measured 
by the success their classes achieve, but can be measured more fully by the impact 
of the teacher's character and personality on the life of the School. These unique 
individuals have shaped the lives of the students with whom they have come in 
contact in many different ways. It is their attitudes toward life and learning that 
have made the most lasting impressions on young minds. 

The individuality of each student has affected the life of the School. By 
providing opportunities for students to utilize their individual talents, we have 
allowed them to grow and to strive to reach their potential. We have always tried 
to stretch their minds and bodies so that they, as individuals, would realize what 
their strengths were. 

What about the future ? It is my intention to help the School grow with 
continued emphasis on each person's individuality. We will work together, as a 
team, as a "family" in order to provide the framework for the development of each 
student. There is a fine balance between working together and yet developing one's 
uniqueness. This is the area where the School must lead. It is so very important 
that we learn to discriminate between blindly following a leader or a party or an 
idea, and ensuring our particular individuality. 

I look back and I see the individual faces and I remember the individual 
anecdotes. So many tales could be told - and are often told about situations that 
occurred. If I can leave any message with you, it is in Kipling's words: 

If all men count with you, but none too much: 
If you can fill the unforgiving minute 
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, 
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, 
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son !

Mrs. Christine Mitchell (1976-1981) taught at all levels in the school 
during her five years with us. In addition to teaching French and 
English, Mrs. Mitchell coached the girls' field hockey team. She is 
leaving S.T.S. to settle in Nanaimo, B.C. 

Mrs. Yvonne Bridges (1978-1981) was a homeroom teacher in the Junior 
School during her three and a half years on staff. She coached junior 
girls' volleyball and was musical director for our three memorable 
musicals: GREASE, L'lL ABNER, and TOM SAWYER. Mrs. Bridges will be 
moving to Oakville, Ontario and she will be teaching at Hillfield- 
Strathallan College in Hamilton. 

Mrs. Martha Osier (1978-1981) was our French teacher for Grades 
4, 5, and 6. Madame Osier was very involved in music at the 
school and she coached a choir and a recorder group. She will 
be moving to Toronto in the Summer and will be teaching at the 
Country Day School in King. 

Miss Janis Clark (1979-1981) was homeroom teacher to Grade 5 
during her two years at S.T.S. She coached the choral speech 
group for the Kiwanis Festival and was producer of both L'lL 
ABNER and TOM SAWYER. Miss Clark, who will be married this 
Summer, will be on the staff of Logos School in Calgarv next vear 

Mrs. Linda Wagner (1979-1981) was our efficient receptionist-secretary-bookstore lady 
for almost two years before leaving in March of this year to be with her family. 

Mrs. Maggie Blackmore (1981) took over Mrs. Wagner's duties, 
but she had no sooner settled in, and learned our names, 
and she found she and her husband and family would be 
moving to Vancouver. We wish her all the best. 


This year, three members of staff completed ten years of service. They are: Mr, 
Mr. Garry Bauman, and Mr. Brian Sills.

SABRE ANDERSON (1975-1981) 

Sabre Is something of an anomaly. Constantly criticized for 
being inaudible in class, Sabre becomes immediately transformed into 
a flaming demon as she lands on the bus. She has made a marvellous 
contribution to school life, and after doing her six years' time 
at S.T.S., she will go on to maximum security at McGill. 


Stephanie joined us in Grade Nine, and since that time has 
become something of a living legend at S.T.S. She has immortalized 
her home town of Priddis and secured for herself a place in our 
history books and hearts, what with her disarming smile and insatiable 
sense of humour, not to mention her unique driving ability. Stephanie 
leaves us this year to broaden her intellect at University,, 

JOHN BILTON (1971-1981) 

John Scott Bilton has attended Strathcona for a total of ten 
years. He has participated in many extra-curricular activities includin 
Students' Council, Keller's Trips, and the Grad. Committee. He has 
been involved in the rugby and basketball teams since Grade 10 
and he was captain of both in his final year. He is noted for his 
non-alcoholic and tobacco tendencies and for his driving ability. 
John, better known as "Bilton", will be attending B.Y.U. 

BART BORRETT (1970-1981) 

Bartley has been a long-time resident of S.T.S. and some say 
that the effects are obvious. So vast and varied are Bart's talents 
and business interests that he has written several screenplays and 
has started at least one novel. The yearbook, however, was his 
magnum opus for the year. Bart will leave us like "a black 
panther passing in the night," to attend the University of Calgary 
where he plans to study law. 


GREG BORM (1977-1981 ) 

The Royal Sir G.J. Esquire, otherwise known as Grog, has been 
entertaining the school for years with his home-made film extravag- 
anzas. He remembers, fondly, the England tour and the Whitefish ski 
trip. Punk rock, guitar, driving and midnight movies are his main 
academic interests which he hopes to continue at U. of C. next year. 
Greg has contributed much to the life of the school - he has played 
both track and rugby, and he was a public speaking finalist. 


This bunny came to S.T.S. from the wilderness of London, and 
she has certainly profited from the year that she has spent here. 
Before her arrival, she was a model student (hence the name "Hot Lips" 
from her Math teacher in England) ; but she has been rapidly transformed 
into the corrupt individual that regularly graces our school halls. 
Excelling in all things academic , "Thumper" is planning to attend 
Queen's University next year to study commerce. 

ERIN CARPENTER (1975-1981) 

A fast livin' rally drivin' motorcycle momma, Erin is fond of 
water sports, music, and running. Our school peace-nik also has the 
dubious distinction of having been hostess to what was undeniably the 
year's greatest bash. It's "Look out Edmonton!!" as next fall Miss 
Carpenter will enter the Arts Department at the U of A. 



MOIRA CARROLL (1975-1981) 

A graduate of Belfast Elementary School, Moira came to S.T.S. 
with hopes of improving her intellectual capacity. These dreams, 
however, have not been realized, as is shown through her continually 
abnormal behaviour. Famous for her fake French accent, her bad taste 
in poetry, and her terrible sense of humour, Moira' s mind has 
regressed considerably since her fresh-faced entry into Grade 7 — 
five long years ago. Moira plans to attend Carleton next year, and 
is hoping to pursue a career writing Harlequin Romances. 


Anita (sniper) has served a period of nine years at S.T.S. She 
She enjoys swimming, racquet sports, and music. Sniper manages to 
retain a dry wit... even while floating down a river towards a 
waterfall backwards in a canoe. She is an accomplished chemistry 
student who specializes in singeing hair with Bunsen burners. 
Anita plans to attend U. of C. where she hopes to recover from 
the trauma of the Biology 30 class. 

GEOFF CODE (1976-1981) 

Geoff, alias "Biff", "Geoffrey Locks", and "Farrah", has been 
a part of our school family since 1976. He has been able to add a bit 
of spice to our otherwise average class. His characteristic 
expression has acquired for him yet another name: "loose lips". 
Geoff's aspirtaions are to follow his interests in music... 
the latter '60's as one can tell from his dress - and to live 
in Europe. He will always be remembered for his easy-going and 
fun-loving attitude, especiallly on weekends. His life ambition 
is to beat up John Bilton. 

KIM DALTON (1976-1981) 

Kim is another five-year veteran of S.T.S. Next to rock- 
climbing, her favorite activity was spending weekdays at school. 
She survived school rules and the depths of Mr. Nelson's Biology 
class with a cheery smile. Kim plans a career in design, and all of 
her fellow graduates wish her the best of luck. 

IAN FARQUHARSON (1973-1975) (1978-1981) 

"Neon", after completing a brief sejour in the Calgary Public 
system, returned to us for his last three years. An avid downhill 
skier, Ian participated in the school's rugby team with great 
success. He plans to attend U of C in the fall and to take commerce. 
A future dream is to enroll in the Ski Resort Management course at 
Selkirk College, B.C. Ian says that he will remember S.T.S. by 
the bonus times he has spent with his friends in the country, 
(especially B.B., admits). 

PETER GAMMELL (1972-1981) 

Pete has attended our school for nine years and one of the more 
important functions he has performed has been to deliver messages to his 
father, the Chairman of the Board. He has participated in school sports 
and has contributed his talents to the art programme and the outdoors 
expeditions. His cheery attitude and approach to life have enriched his 
class throughout the years and his presence at our school will be missed, 
Pete plans to attend U of C next year. 

SARA GOLDSTEIN (1969-1981) 

Sara is a veteran of S.T.S. and her years of service are 
beginning to tell on her. Her average is dangerously close to the 
three-digit mark and her blazer is looking much worse for the wear. 
Sara's fondest memory can only be of spraining her ankle in swimming 
class while executing a front crawl. She will be attending Roedean 
School for Girls in England next year. 

DONNA HADWAY (1976-1981) 

Donna, also known as "Nonnie", became part of the S.T.S. family 
in Grade Eight. Since then she has proven her many abilities — such 
as her good dips in volleyball (good dips Donna) and her great defence 
in basket ball (her best-known penalty was for biting the opposition) . 
Being very fond of the outdoors, Donna can be found swinging into a 
mountain face or underwater canoeing. Donna will be attending the 
University of Montana next year. 

VIVIAN HARDING (1976-1981) 

Viv, Liv, or Oblivian has been part of the S.T.S. family for 
five years. During this time, she has made herself known for her stim- 
ulating dives on the volleyball court and her escapades in Bournemouth, 
England. Viv is admired for her unmatched ability to stay awake in 
Biology class and her keenness to talk about the asexual reproduction 
of fungi. Her favorite pastimes are observing gorgeous med . students, 
missing the bus, and writing biology quizzes. Viv plans to revolutionize 
the concepts of modern biology at the University of Lethbridge next fall. 

CAROL HAYS (1980-1981) 

Carol was pried away from the clutches of Western Canada High to 
attend an institution that was much worthier of her capabilities. She 
has exhibited a fantastic proficiency in scuba-diving, eating chocolate 
eclairs, and pinching cheeks. Carol is fondly remembered throughout 
Grade Twelve not only for her exploits at the aftergrad, but as well 
for being the only student ever to turn down Mr. Hay's offer of 
a perfect social average (in exchange for two Flame's tickets which 
she won in a raffle). Next year, Carol is transferring her many talents 
to the U of A, where her cast-iron stomach will surely win her many 
friends . 



LORELEI HILDT (1980-1981) 

Lorelei, aside from her remarkable resemblance to Lisa Minelli, 
is best remembered for her non-stop giggling and her smile, capable 
of melting any teacher. She is famous for laughing at the most inopport- 
une moments and we wonder if her perpetual state of happiness can be 
attributed to the experiments of a mad scientist. Lorelei's interests 
range from leering at big hunks to dancing across stages in pink 
tutus. Next year Lorelei plans to disrupt the social life at McGill. 

TRISH IRVINE (1980-1981) 

Trish ("Gipper") came to S.T.S. as a result of the teacher's 
strike (it is widely believed that she caused it). What Trish lacks 
in height, she makes up for with her pleasant attitude and her amazing 
ability to do any sport well. Trish will be attending Carleton next 
year and she eventually hopes to sign on with the Boston Celtics. 

LESLEY LAMP MAN (1976-1981) 

Lesley, well known for her mini-skirts and her hair styles, 
has attended S.T.S. for the past five years. Lesley's main interests 
lie in music and she has won numerous awards for her singing and piano 
Outside of school it is rumored that Lesley can be found amongst 
local new-wave groupies. Her favorite pastimes include washing 
the car or playing basketball when her neighbour is around. Lesley's 
fondest memories of S.T.S. are her many outstanding library fines. 
Next year Lesley plans to attend university and major in music. 


It was four years ago that Letizia came to us from overseas and 
astounded us with her rapid adjustment to our culture and our food - 
(our pizza is still all wrong ) . It took her a little longer to accept 
American men, but, apparently, this year she gave in. Letizia showed 
us that it is not impossible to be an avid partier while maintaining 
a high average. A poet and an enthusiastic musician, Letizia will be 
returning to Milan where she hopes to attend medical school. 

DIANE MARTIN (1977-1981) 

Diane, a former winner of the most valuable bench warmer award, 
has contributed greatly to the success of the senior girls' basketball 
team. She is looking forward with joyful anticipation to graduating 
with honours from the acclaimed Chinook Driving School. Diane plans 
to study recreation at the University of Lethbridge. 

MARCO MAZZOLANI (1970-1981) 

Marco is one of the few students who has withstood twelve 
years of intensive eduaction at S.T.S., especially when they were 
crammed into eleven. "Mazz" as he is known, has left a definite 
mark on the school. He will be remembered by his teachers and 
classmates alike for his unique personality and fun-loving attitude. 
Marco's interests include elementary guitar picking, swimming, 
bricklaying, and 2 by Vs. He plans to study at the U of C, and 
eventually drive Formula One cars around Europe. 

MADELINE McDONALD (1980-1981) 

Madeline arrived at S.T.S. last fall to broaden her intellectual 
horizons after attending Ernest Manning High School. Her regular absent 
eeism on Mondays (to recover from those hectic weekends), coupled with 
her search for "anarchistic nirvana" endeared her to the Social Studies 
Department. Madeline's interests include hot=tubbing, fine wines and 
scuba diving. "Hamish McBagpipes" , as she has come to be known, will 
attend U of S next fall. 

MARK HARRY McKENNA (1978-1981) 

Mark (alias G.I. Jello) is a student who has added a unique 
dimension to many of Mr. Hay's social studies classes. Mark has 
won awards in public speaking, and has held a consistently good 
academic record throughout his three-year career at S.T.S. His 
interests include radical politics, fast women, and slow horses. Mark 
is on a strict fitness program in the hopes that one day he may be James 
Bond. After a summer of intensive therapy at Gambler's Anonymous, 
Mark will be attending the University of Alberta. 



Nazleen, more commonly known as "Cleo" (patra) has been roaming 
the hallowed halls of S.T.S. for four years to date. Excelling in 
Social Studies and contemplating Math and Biology, she feels her 
future lies in political science. A fond memory is clambering off 
the Triple Chair at Fortress in the Grade Ten Skiing Program. She 
has clear plans to attend the U of C next year. Best of luck Nazleen! 

SLOAN PIPELLA (1969-1981) 

"Sloany Poo" is one of this year's famous five, those who have 
had the pleasure of enjoying their entire education at S.T.S. Sloan 
will be remembered always for her role as Sandra Dee in the musical 
production "Grease" and for her stunning dramatic interpretation of 
Judy Garland. Sloan is also a Young Canadian and a Figure-Skater. 
Next year she plans to take nursing at the U of C. 



IAN ROSS (1978-1981) 

Ian joined us three years ago but is still renowned as the baby of 
the school family. He is known most for his unique approach to life 
and his dynamic personality. Since Ian joined us he has won awards in 
debating, has played with the Rugby team, has been a member of the 
Student's Council, and was the leading scorer on our "Reach for the Top" 
team. Ian will be attending the University of Western Ontario to pursue 
an exhilarating career. 

LISA SAFFEL (1975-1981 ) 

Lisa's dynamic and bubbling personality has scintillated us ever 
since she came from the Montessori School in Grade Seven. A fabulous 
dancer and Math student, Lisa has recieved several scholastic prizes in 
her S.T.S. career. Lisa has constantly been a conversational delight 
to us, and is notorious for her risque vocabulary. Atter graduating 
from this illustrious academy, she will be going on to Mount Royal 
in hopes of eventually entering the business world. 


During Chris' seven-year incarceration at S.T.S., she has 
developed several skills, the most recent of which are rowdily support- 
ing the Calgary Flames, a.nd soaking up those golden brown Hawaiian rays 
during the holidays. Chris spent much of her time at S.T.S. this year 
working for the Graduation Committee. She will be attending the U of C 
this fall and hopes to venture "out east" the following year. 


Albert is not just another ugly face around the school. Al 
and his purse are important features of the Grade 12 culture. 
Involved in many activities, Albert's significant contribution 
has been to the school's drama productions. He will be remembered 
as a great Student's Council president, and as a member of the 
Reach for the Top team. Albert has won a scholarship to York 
where he will take drama. 

IROZ SHAH (1976-1981) 

"Frotz" and his antics have been a source of constant amusement. 
His love for punk-rock and the guitar will carry him far at U of A 
where he hopes to become a dentist. His natural aptitude for physics 
is one of his fondest memories. Firoz has played basketball and track 
and has won awards in public speaking. A cartoonist extraordinaire, 
he plans to illustrate an edition of "The Canterbury Tales". 

NELS SULTAN (1980-1981) 

Nels joined us this year after coming from L.C.C. in Montreal. 
He brought with him a charm and magnetism that made him irresistible 
to members of the opposite sex. "The Swinging Swede" is quite an 
outdoorsman and he has played on both the basketball and rugby teams. 
He is the best chemistry student in the class and he plans to attend 
Queen's University. 

RENEE TETRAULT (1972-1981) 

Renee is one of the few surviving veterans of our school. Her 
long presence here has left a lasting mark on members of the school 
family and she is the subject of constant conversation amongst the 
staff. She is one the best athletes in the school, excelling in 
gymnastics as well as in track and field. Her favourite expression 
is, "It's almost Friday." Next year she plans to do some travelling 
and to improve her partying skills. 

DAVID THAKKAR (1970-1981) 

Besides being our local distributer of Amway products, Dave, 
for the past eleven years has blessed many of the S.T.S. trophies with 
his name. "Little Dave" is well-known for his not-so-surperb Math 31 
marks and his winning what he thought what was a PGA tourney (actually 
it was only an S.T.S. tourney). His public speaking skills were put 
to the test when he gave the Valedictory address on Prizegiving. 
Dave plans to study medicine at the Uof A next year. 

KARIN WALLAT (1980-1981) 

"P.B." came to us from St. Margaret's very happy to trade 
boarding school for a day school. Early mornings in the rotunda won 
be the same without Karin's photo collections to look at!! Karin 
will also be remembered for her fantastic portraits of Chaucer's 
Pilgrims — one English Assignment she liked completing. Karin will 
be attending S.A.I.T. next year. 

VANESSA WARD (1980-1981) 

Vanessa's introduction to S.T.S. could be adequately described as 
"Paddington Takes to the Sail" as she ambled up and down the docks in 
her little blue gumboots. She escaped, it seems, from her former 
keepers at Queen Margaret's on Vancouver Island; so what could we 
do but trundle her up in blackwatch and take her on as a mascot. Next 
year she plans to decend upon the U of C arts department. 

JIM WILSON (1980-1981) 

"Willy" has attended S.T.S. for an entire year, and wishes 
he had come earlier. Jim plans to attend Texas A and M and 
eventually become a pilot in the Marines. He has a high academic 
standing, and has participated in both Rugby and Basketball. Jim ha 
attended nineteen different schools in fifteen different countries 
and his family has travelled extensively. Jim is American and has 
shown his northern neighbours what America is all about. We have 
all enjoyed his presence in our school and have appreciated what he 
has done for our institution.

A Typical Day At S.T.S. 

The time is a quarter to nine, 
The buses drop off their masses, 
We gather our books in the locker 

Then journey to our classes. 

The first two periods are difficult. 
We try to keep awake. 
After what seems like a couple of 
hours , 

We finally get a break. 

We all assemble in the gym. 
Mr. Hay tries to keep us quiet. 
Then Mr. Heard shows us a garbage bag, 
And teaches us how to tie it I 

Next on the list is double English, 

Which can leave you feeling beat. 

The only good thing to look forward to 

Is the time when we can eat. 

We quickly gobble down our lunch, 
And do homework we didn't do. 
Our lunchtime's always filled with 
house-leagues , 

On Tuesdays, and Thursdays , too . 

The ring of the bell, as we all 
know, means 

Three more classes to go. 

There's always a quiz or a surprise test, 
Teachers love torturing us so. 

A big stampede means school is out, 
The buses are all packed tight. 
But this isn't the end of our 
S.T.S. day. 

We have homework to last us all night.

Oh, give me a school, 
Where the students can rule, 
And the teachers are all locked

Where homework' s not heard - 
'Tis an obsolete word - 
And the students may slumber all

Chorus : 

School, school is for fools, 
And I wish I was home in bed. 
Sleeping away 
The whole live long day, 
Instead of wasting away.

The Dreamer 

Although you see me sitting here, 

With my book open, 

I really 

have been gone 

for quite sometime. 

I read about butterflies, 

So, I left, 

to go find spring. 

Fallen Angel 
As a child 

I always wondered why my snow angels 

Never turned out like everyone else's. 

They were all straggly edged, 

And ragged, like an old torn sheet. 

But now, I think that it was because 

I was different from everyone else 

And always have been. 

Probably because I never did like 

Lying down in the snow, 

Flapping like a grounded bird, 

Cold snow going down my pants. 

Probably, because I knew, even then 

That I was far from an angel. 

And I knew it was useless to try 

To become one, 

Even a snow Angel . 

-Winning Entry, Locke Poetry Contest, 1981. 


Life is a gift, 

A box wrapped with silk bows 

And sprinkled with gold dust 

Open it one day. . . 

You won't find a watch, 

or a diamond ring. 

Look under the tissue paper, 

Go beyond the price tag 

And take out the colors of reality — - 

Happiness, pain, sorrow, love. 

Paint your own rainbow. 

No one else can. 

A Lesson Learned 

I thought you were my friend 

But I was wrong, 

You were only using me. 

And, when you were done, 

You cast me aside, 

Like a broken toy. 

I guess that's what I was to you, 

A toy; to be played with and manipulated. 

Now, you're happy 

You think you've hurt me 

But this time you are wrong 

You helped me, you showed me 

I could stand by myself 

And be strong 

Without you. 

A Match 

A match is lit 

and it brightens its surroundings 
With only a short time 
to accomplish a goal, 
it strives to become 
a greater flame. 

Hurriedly, a candle 
is thrust forward; 
united . 

Life's goal: a success. 
The fire flickers, 
gasping for a longer life. 

A breeze; 
darkness . 

Songs of Many Verses 

Songs of many verses 

Play before my eyes, 

Running, diving in the sea, 

Then reaching for the skies. 

Songs of many verses 

Dancing in my mind 

Oh, a place to rest their souls 

Will they ever find ? 

Songs of many verses 

On wings of sparrows fly. 

Living, how they thunder strong 

Yet softly do they die. 

Innocence , 

Like a flickering candle 

Appealing in its brightness and warmth. 

Glowing, Shining. 

With time. 
The flame dies 
Never to be relit. 

An Empty Room 

Dreaming in an empty room, 

always thinking and 

always waiting 

for someone. 

Sitting and creating, 

sketching blank pictures. 

Looking at old photos and 

writing poems 

that do not yet exist. 

These dreams are my dreams - - 

The mixed up thoughts 

that are privately 

my own. 

They're endless tales that 
Tuesday's child tells 
on Wednesday. 

You Know 

You know, 

I never realized 

That your eyes are blue. 

They look just like 
the ocean, 

they're fathomless too. 

And which is deeper, 
The water or your eyes ? 
I can't swim in either, 
I know, I've tried. 

The Stranger and I 

In the mirror 
I saw. . . 

An image of someone 

I call myself. 

How distant were the eyes. 

So familiar, yet so new 

Was this person. 

In the mirror 

Reflected . . . 

Was a stranger 

Named myself, 

A bundle of hopes, 

Wishes and new ideas, 

Packaged in a Stranger 

called myself . 

I reached out 

The stranger in the mirror 

reached out 
And the stranger 
And I became 
One, with each other... 

A summer romance 

Come and gone as on an ocean tide 
Upon pure white sands 


"And we have our own ski slopes." That did it! I had to go to Canada! 
Little did I know that they were cross-country slopes and I had never stood 
up on cross-country skis. But the pond for canoeing, the ski slopes, the 
small classes, and the supposed lack of homework were definitely for me. 

When I eventually arrived at S.T.S., after a twenty-hour flight from 
Australia, and a weekend with the Longcrofts, I was really surprised at the 
similarities between it and Eltham College, my school for the past three 
years in Melbourne. I never thought that I would find another school with the 
same kind of atmosphere as the one I was used to. The closeness and family-like 
situation, however, was even more concentrated at S.T.S. I was amazed at how 
readily accepted I was by the students and teachers and made to feel at home. 

Being the jock that I am, or trying hard to be, one of the first things 
I did was to check out the physical education programme and the extra-curricular 
activities. Australians, by nature, are a very competitive people so I noticed 
very quickly that students here are out to have a lot of fun, but, as a result, 
there is a lack of desire to get deeply involved in a sport, and also a lack 
of team spirit. 

There is certainly more variety in the physical education programme at 
S.T.S. At Eltham College there is a very structured programme consisting of 
gymnastics, orienteering, dance, more gymnastics, swimming and track and field. 
There is a compulsory after-school sport programme for the junior high which 
is extended to the brave in the senior high. 

The similarities in the academic curriculum are remarkable. Similar 
standards are reached in all subjects, although there is more work and 
responsibility placed on the Grade Nines and Tens at Eltham. I think that 
this is a major advantage when trying for good final grades for university 
entrance. Because of the difference in the sizes of the two schools, Eltham 
is able to offer more courses with more facilities. As a result, there is a 
greater emphasis placed on the music and drama departments. 

In closing, there are mnay people I would like to thank: Mr. Ditchburn 
for arranging my stay; Mr. Heard for having me at the school; the Longcroft 
family for putting up with my idiosyncrasies, and everyone at the school for 
making me feel welcome, at home, and a part of the S.T.S. family. These six 
months have been some of the best in my life.

Albert Camus' THE OUTSIDER may be judged more fully if it is recognized primarily 
as a work of philosophy, an attempt to put ideas into a situation and discover the 
outcome, and thus, to discover the validity of those ideas. The critical purpose of 
THE OUTSIDER is not simply to educate us about the absurdist point of view, but also to 
convince us of its validity. 

This novel achieves its purpose according to the reaction of the individual 
reader. Camus' absurdist philosophy can appeal only to a certain group of people, 
enough to force them to take it up, but it should not be dismissed simply because it 
fails to convince every reader who picks it un. Rather, it should be appreciated on a 
deeper level, one which recognizes the book's literary merit as well as its philosophical 
stability. Like all great philosophy, absurdism contains constants of spiritual and 
intellectual truth which may be embraced. The book is especially useful, for this 
reason, because it brings the reader into the world of the neo-pagan for first-hand 
experience. The exploration of the character Meursault allows us to see both the 
motivations of Camus towards adopting this philosophy, and the effects that its 
adoption had upon the protagonist of the story. We are allowed at once the privilege 
of viewing absurdism in action and experiencing it ourselves. 

If Camus has succeeded in doing anything in writing THE OUTSIDER, he certainly 
succeeded in demonstrating the virtues and the flaws of his theory. If he could not 
manage to achieve his ultimate aim, that of persuading his readers, he did allow for 
a deeper appreciation of that lifestyle than would ever have been possible in the writing 
of a polemic study. 

I do not feel that the purpose of the novel was as significant as Camus felt it 
to be. Nevertheless, it provided a great incitement to the analysis of one's own views, 
something which is at least as important as learning about that philosophy. It is 
better to remain unconvinced of a philosophy and yet analytical of one's own, than to 
embrace whatever thought happens to pass by, to hang one's hat on any old dogma or 
belief. What makes THE OUTSIDER truly great is its capacity to disturb one's way of 
thinking and to force a person into questioning himself. It is accomplished through 
the medium of fiction where one becomes directly involved in the problems of living 
a belief.

Act 1, Scene 1: 

Chorus Two hockey teams alike in dignity, 

In Calgary, that's where we lay our scene, 

Known as the North Stars of Minnesota 

And the hot Flames of good old Calgary, 

Gather inside the small Stampede Corral 

To play a game that will make the fans yell. 

Within the members of these two tough teams, 

A pair of star-crossed skaters 'gin to fight, 

Whose misadventured piteous overthrows 

Doth with their brawl make their two coaches strife. 

So if you all, with patient ears attend 

This hockey game, you'll find out it ends. 

(In the crowd) 

Fan 1 I wonder who is going to win this game ? 

Fan 2 I hope it's not the team that's in the green. 

I'll really be teed off if they play well. 

Fan 1 Who do you think will be the first to score ? 

Fan 2 The organ player. She plays off a score! 

Fan 1 No, really, who do you think will score first ? 

Fan 2 I don't think either team will make twenty goals. 

Fan 1 I'll score your face if you don't stop quibbling. 

Fan 2 Oh, look. Here come the two teams on the ice ! 

Commentator Ev'ry player in his position. 

The face-off is about to take action. 

The puck is now in play by Calgary's goal. 

Pat Riggin makes the first save of the day. 

It looks like both teams are playing quite well. 

The North Stars have control of the puck now, 

But Calgary's Willy Plett steals it away. 

He's skating towards the goal with lots of speed. 

He shoots. He scores! The fans are going wild! 

(On the ice) 

Ciccerellio Don't smile with victory upon your face. 

Your flame will surely fizzle out quite soon. 
Plett Are you insulting me, Cicc'rellio ? 

Ciccerellio I am only speaking what is the truth. 
Plett Hold your tongue, Minnesotan. 

You're asking for a fist right in the face. 
(They fight) 

Referee Put down your sticks. You know not what you do. 

A penalty is here for both of you. 
(They continue to fight) 
Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace. 
Do you not hear ? Stop! Stop! You men, you beasts! 
Plett, out the flaming fire of your rage 
And Cicc'rellio, calm your starry mood. 
Put your mistempered sticks down by your side, 
And hear the sentence of your referee. 
You have disturbed the quiet of the ice, 
You've roughed, high-sticked, and fought but twice. 

Too often have I seen the two of you 

Begin to brawl upon this hockey stage. 

Here in my hand I hold two penalties, 

Each that will take nine minutes off your time. 

If ever you disturb this game again, 

Participation of your games to come 

Shall surely pay the very well-earned price. 

So go you both to the penalty box 

n' remember what I said of future games. 

(They skate off the ice)

A long, long time ago when sheep had no wool, a little lamb came to his mother 
and said, "Why don't we have anything to keep us warm in winter, because it is so 
cold then ?" The mother answered, "I don't know, dear. It is rather silly that we don't 
have some wool or something." 

The next day, when the sheep woke up, they noticed that all the clouds were 
getting lower and they thought this was really funny. The little lamb went up to his 
mother and said, "I know winter is coming, but why are the clouds so low ?" His mother 
said, "I think this is strange, but there is nothing we can do about it." 

The next morning, the sheep woke up and they had wool all over themselves and 
all the clouds were around them. The sheep talked about it and the sheep thought about 
it, and from that day on everybody thought sheep wore clouds.

On behalf of the entire school, we would like to express our 
thanks to the Students' Council for their tireless effort and 
dedication. Special thanks must be extended to Albert Schultz, 
President, who did a superb job organizing dances, activity days, 
and grub days - and who kept the drink machine operating at least 
part of the year ! The example of leadership set by this year's 
council is a challenging precedent for future student organizations. 
The liaison of the council with the staff, teachers, and the school 
administration made our days and evenings at S.T.S. all the more 
enjoyable and worthwhile.

Independent School Games 

Neil Copeland captures yet Canoeing on the pond, 

another victory. 

Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School hosted the second annual Summer Games in late 
June 1980. Eight schools from accross Canada were represented by 125 boys and 
girls and adults. Competition was keen in eight sports: Track and Field, 
swimming, golf, soccer, volleyball, badminton, canoeing, and cross-country running. 
Nearly 150 people, including students and coaches, attended the events in 
weather which began warm and dry and concluded in a mist. However, spirits 
were not dampened by the rain and some very exciting final matches occurred. 

S.T.S. picked up 25 firsts, 30 seconds, 18 thirds, 13 fourths, and 14 
fifths in the individual competition, and team competition S.T.S. won 6 firsts. 
Bruce Gilley placed first in all the swimming events. 

Other first place winners were: Steve Wood : canoeing; Geret Coyne : 1500 m. 
runs, canoeing; Neil Copeland : High Jump; Bill Monks : 200m., 400m., 800 m. runs; 
Neil Dobell : Golf; Laura Shutiak : triple jump; Michelle Stevens : long jump; 
Sandra Rae : 200 m. , 400 m. runs; Kari Fox : javelin; Denise O'Donoghue : discus; 
and Tara Pipella : 800 m. run, 1500 m. run, girl's cross-country. 

Since the emphasis in these games is on participation, total scores for 
each school were not kept. Everyone seemed to enjoy the week — with many extra 
events such as a church service, polo game, trips to the mountains, a teachers' 
coffee cup relay, and parties. 



Another excellent and enjoyable half-day of festivities was 
presented by the students on December 19th. As well as staff and 
students, many parents were in attendance and the spirit of 
Christmas was high as we celebrated the last day of school before 
the holidays. The audience was entertained by musical selections 
and skits from the the elementary and junior high school. The 
senior drama students presented a traditional Christmas pageant. 
During the set changes, Miss Clark directed the audience in

On March 12 and 13th, and again at the Spring Fair, the school was 
treated to the elementary production TOM SAWYER. TOM SAWYER was the high- 
light of the dramatic activities at the school this year and was hailed by 
many to be the best production ever! Under the direction of Miss Clark, 
Mrs. Bridges, and Mme. Osier, TOM SAWYER included an all-star cast headed up 
by Todd Worsley. The operetta was a great success, not to mention one heck 
of a good time! 

In other drama news, the S.T.S. production of AS GOOD AS NEW won the 
Zone V Drama Festival. Kori Russell, as a result, was awarded a scholarship 
and Albert Schultz was selected to join the summer stock company at Mount Royal. 

The first annual Science Fair 
was a rousing success. 

One of the many award-winning 
entries in the fair.

Whan that Septembre with his coldness soote 
Hath perced Summer ' se grippe to the roote, 
And covred ev'ry blosoume with snowe, 
Then on Kellar'se ski-trippes students do gowe. 

Befell that I too was to wenden my waye, 

To lae O'Hare, one crispe wintres daye, 

Along with some camrades whood crossed my pathe, 

And a great bearded fellowe - a teacher of mathe! 

In a horse-powred carriage we stowed our geare, 
And bade our farewelles to familie deare. 
Then with nary a thought if we'd evre come backe, 
We shouldred our goodes and set offe on the tracke. 

From the mall we didst leave, a ryte motelie crewe, 
A group of explorers in search of landes newe, 
And now, fare I further the tale I've begunne, 
'Twould best I described them, onne by onne. 

A scholar there wasse, much lerned in trigge, 

A strapping great fellowe, with knapsacke full bigge. 

He wore ruffe cloth knickers, and suspendres well brighte, 

An outdoorsman he seemed, one not bested in fighte. 

Then camen an actore, a-wearing pink ceinte, 

And people all stared when curling he wente, 

His clothes, they were cheerful, his manner quite gaye, 

His tongue was a large one that rattled all daye. 

One versde in court wayse came nexte in the crowde, 
She dribbled ryte daintly, yet shouted quite loude. 
Though only five two, she hit every shote, 
And in public school brawles, gave as good as she gote. 

Then came a gossipe who talked all day longe, 

She whispered and laughed, mingled in with the thronge. 

Her voice was so loude, put othres to shame, 

I knew nought else, but that Lise was her name. 

A Fasciste was nexte, a guerilla, they saye, 
He worked at the race trackes to get himself e paye, 
His hair was cut shorte, his" clothes were somber, 
He hoped to become an IRA bomber. 

A drunkard was also a part of our groupe, 

He wente to parties, got knocked for a loope. 

His eyes, they were bleary, uncultured his stance, 

He carried jell'd beans in the pock'ts of his pantes. 

As welle went a blonde whose clothes were a sighte, 
She wore baggy trousers, stayed out late at nighte. 
A punk rocker by trade, she slepte during schoole, 
And though seemed "dizzy", was nobody's fool. 


A Swedish Adonis did stay by her heele, 
A lusty yung sportsman who peeped with zeale. 
Maids felt to attracted by his dulcet tones, 
They clamored to see his errogenous zones. 

A magnificent chemist came quicke on his traile, 

Her suit was of sackclothe, bought at Priddis sale. 

Her tongue waggles so faste that her lips needed chaining, 

And her ankles turned inne(from conitnuous spraining). 

Laste came myself e, a dashing young figure, 
Brilliant and graceful, and well-filled with vigore. 
A lovelier sighte could 'st nevarre be seenne, 
Than my staggering inne at midnight-f if teenne. 

Did' st meet at the cabine, full many in number, 
We threw offe our packes, and fell into slumber. 
A tiresum jerney with far too few gaines, 
Save two broken legs which I got for my paines. 


These portraits were written in simple good funne, 

My intentions were notte to hurt anyonne. 

And now I beg'st pardon if I did'st offende, 

To cause some amusement was this tale's sole ende. 

trigge: an ancient type of math that is Greek to most of us. 
ceinte: a belt.

Valedictory Address 

Well, here we are — another June Day. Another prizegiving 
and another graduating class. This, however is not just another 
graduating class. This is the largest Grade Twelve Class to grad- 
uate from Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School since the inception of the 
school ten years ago; and I have been given the honor of representing 
the Class of Eighty-One in bidding farewell. Over the last few years, 
this class has gone through a total metamorphosis from being adolescent 
delinquents wearing funny uniforms to a mature group of young adults. 
Large as our class may be, we have achieved a close bond which I am 
sure will form a solid base for our future endeavours no matter where 
we may be. From the stimulating Biology classes to Mr. Keller's 
Math, and from the depths of Lake Minnewanka with the scuba group 
to the top of Mount Yamnuska with the rock-climbing group, this 
class has endured both physical and mental stress. Often, we have 
had to resort to pranks in order to keep our sanity. Some of these 
pranks included stockpiling our Physics Teacher's car with newspaper, 
and hanging John Bilton's garments on the flagpole. However, these 
experiences have had only a positive effect on us and now we are 
ready to step out and take our places in society to face both the 
challenges and problems that may come across our paths in the future. 
The role of the school throughout has been to prepare us for these 
obstacles by teaching us not only through learning but also by 
observation. We have learned how to cope with any situation as we grow 
into adults. 

Strathcona-Tweedsmuir, during my eleven year stay, has left me 
with many lasting memories and values which I will carry with me 
throughout the rest of my life. I have learned about the value of 
friendship and honor which I will never forget and I have also learned 
how to respect others. S.T.S. has not only represented a school as 
an institution, but, more importantly, it has represented a large 
family where I have learned the values of tolerance, humility, and love. 

After today, this class will no longer be under the sheltering 
wing of both our parents and our school. Everything we have learned 
will be put to the test as we enter a post-secondary institution, or 
a job, or both. This school has given us a firm base to rely upon 
an how successful we are will depend entirely on us. 

Next year, the Class of Eighty-One will be scattered across the 
globe, and there are many who will excell in any field, given the 
opportunity. So, ladies and gentlemen, don't be too surprised if you 
find that the person you chose to lead your country was a graduate 
of this class. 

On a closing note, we, the Class of Eighty-One would like to 
thank our parents, the staff, and our friends who have prepared us for 
the task ahead. I also have a special note for my teachers: If you 
thought that this class of forty was crazy, wait until you get your 
class of sixty next year.
