Our first yearbook, Paidia '72, celebrated the opening of the new Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School. 
The Head's Message for that year mentioned the seven girls who comprised the graduating 
class. Now, twenty-one years later, some 746 students have graduated from Strathcona- 
Tweedsmuir and most have gone on to universities of their choice in Canada, the U.S. and 

Over the years the graduating class has taken on the responsibility for the yearbook so that 
it has become a detailed record of the year and, at the same time, a parting gift from a special 
group of young men and women. 

This year's group, led by Katy Stewart, reflects the pride in our School. During Marti McKay 
Week, Katy reminded everyone of our motto, inherited from Tweedsmuir - Nothing but the 
best - and urged students to give their best during a week of opportunity to explore and to 
creat with sculpture. The best has now been expressed in Paidia '92 and the yearbook team 
has given us an impressive souvenir of yet another busy and fulfilling year at S.T.S. 

I congratulate Katy, Tory Jennings, Michael Forbes and staff helpers Mr. Keller, Mr. McConnell, 
Miss Harper, Mrs. Skelly, Miss Hewson and Mr. Taylor on a fine achievement. 

Peter B. Ditchburn, 
Head of School 

PAIDIA, the name of our yearbook, is the Spartan Greek word for education. Two contests 
in 1971 - 72 led to our sports teams being called Spartans and yearbook, Paida, the winning 
suggestion which had been entered by Mr. Schmit. 

Special thanks to Lauren Blumes, Lucy Reimer, Kathleen Cronin, Alison Leithead, Clint Sello, Kari Neilson, Maya Gohill, Tory Jen- 
nings, Rachael Owens and Mike Forbes for making this yearbook happen. We hope our version of the special memories of 1992 
is similar to yours, and that the pages in this book will act as a journal for the year you spent at S.T.S.

Mrs. Grey was a good friend and a great student. 
She was always very cheerful and kind. Everyone lik- 
ed her and she liked everyone. We wish her good luck 
in her career! 

Mrs. Gibson was our special homeroom teacher. She 
always made learning fun and understandable. She is 
very enthusiastic and happy all the time that we see 
her. We wish we could have her for a homeroom 
teacher next year. 

This year the 4A's had a fun and exciting time. When we got to Camp Horizon we had a great 
time playing the animal game. Another highlight of the year was the jumpathon for the Heart and 
Stroke Fund. To celebrate Canada's 125th birthday, with the generous help of Mr. Hendricks, we 
build birdhouses for the Rocky Mountain Bluebirds. We set up the birdhouses and found that some 

had nested. 

These are some of the things that made our year so much fun!

4B's YEAR 

This year 4B was kept very busy! Mixed in 
with all our hard work there was also time 
for fun. 

We began our year with our visit to Camp 
Horizon. What a great time we had there! 
We were challenged to our limitss on the 
ropes course, and also had a chance to 
make some new friends. 
To tie in with our studies this year we had 
field trips to the Energeum and the Glen- 
bow Museum. 

We had a chance to develop some mus- 
cles when we had our skiing trip and again 
when we had swimming at Okotoks Pool 
for a week. 

To end our year Mrs. Wyatt invited us to 
her farm for a day of country life. We went 
on a hayride, saw how much work goes 
into raising horses and farming. The rain 
sure didn't spoil our fun! We speak for 4B 
when we say this year hass been GREAT

The volleyball season was a memorable one. The 
games played were always close with the team 
fighting to the end. We had a lot of victories, not 
necessarily in the sense of games, but certainly 
in what the team set out to achieve.

Senior Boys Volleyball Team 

The senior boys volleyball team had an extremely success- 
ful year. 

The season concluded in Didsbury where "da boys" dis- 
played a tremendous amount of heart at the South Central 
Zone Tournament. 

The season's many highlights included the clinic with the 
Canadian National Volleyball Team, as well as the game 
played at the school against National Team members Ke- 
vin Boyles and Jody Holden. 

The season also created many fantastic memories for the 
3 graduating players, Drew Hyndman, Mark Perkins, and 
Eric Giesbrecht, who were chosen for the South central 
Zone All-Star Team. 
Thanks for the memories!

Elementary Literature 

ONLY ONE EARTH by Erica Faltous 

There's moon after moon, 

Without proper air. 

There's planet after planet, 

Without proper climate. 

There's star after star, 

Too small for us to live on. 

But there's only one earth, 

One earth with proper air, 

One earth with proper climate, 

One earth big enough for us to live on. 

Look around you. 

What do you see? 

Do you see a clean world? 

Do you see a dirty world? 

Or do you see a world that is suffering? 

You might be one of those people 

Who are putting our world to waste. 

Please don't say you are, 

Because there's only one earth, 

One perfect earth, 

That won't come back 

Once it's gone. 

KIDS THESE DAYS by Murray Bin 

Kids these days, 
earrings on their noses, 
mohawks? spike? crew? 
Kids these days 
run around yelling, "Rad? 
Awesome? Narley dude? 
What does it mean? 
Kids these days! 

SEE THAT SNOWMAN by Kim Milne grade 2 

See that snowman with the big karrit nose 
See that snowman with the big black boots 
See that snowman with the funny cole nose 
See that funny snowman, that's no snowman 
That's just my silly dad!

THE STORM by Nageeb Sumar 

The surging sea pounded against the sloping shore. 
Its mighty power made the boats in the dock quiver. 
Gigantic waves rose to their feet washing the benches. 
The seagulls screeched as they soared upward. 
Sand and rocks were pulled sharply into the sea. 
Crabs scurried into their hiding places. 
Seaweed tumbled in a dance with the roaring waves. 
The palm trees clutched the swaying coconuts 
As the wind howled in a cry of anguish. 
The old man watched nature's forces at play; 
Laid his wrinkled head down; 
He was defeated.

Come take my hand and move with me, 

walk in the sand of the outstretched sea, 
Climb a mountain, and sail under the moon, 

touch the sky in a hot air balloon, 
Dance without shoes on the warm summer ground, 

twirl and spin till the world turns around, 
Bike to the end of a long winding street, 

skip to the bakery (our little treat), 
Creep through the forest, and step through a cave, 

run across a field and splash in a wave, 
Jump till we've touched the top of each tree, 

and then, for a moment, come and sit with me. 
We'll stop moving then, just for a time, 

tomorrow we'll find more seas to swim, 

. . . and mountains to climb.

Valedictory Speech - Tori Jennings 

Senator Hays, Mr. Chairman of the Board, Mr. Ditchburn, Honored Guests, Staff and Fellow Students. 

It is my privilege to speak on behalf of the graduating class and my position on the program indicates that it is incumbent 
on me to be brief. 

It has been an honor to have been a member of a class, which has historically been considered by all who've had the mixed 
blessing of coming in contact with us, to be unique. 

It is my intent to highlight some of the events which have contributed to our collective distinction. 

I first entered Strathcona Tweedsmuir in 1968, when I was in Grade 7. The essence of being in Grade 7 is not a complicated 
one. We were children trying to be adults. It was a year of innocence, silliness and an overwhelming desire to please. Some 
went beyond the call of duty. Drew and Travis assumed the role of interior decorators when, in attempting to establish whether 
or not red jello will fly, they redecorated their home room ceiling. 

We all experienced our first major outdoor education trip, which consisted of 5 days of cross-country skiing. Steph Brown 
and I risked total abandonment by the rest of the group when we sat by the trail for an extended period of time pursuing the 
useful concept of renaming every visible Rocky Mountain peak. 

In Grade 8, the emphasis changes from the childlike desire to please to a naive attempt to be cool. Though we thought we 
were enormously successful in this endeavour, the staff repeatedly endorsed the fact that we were not. Unappreciated were 
our dazzling attempts to wear makeup, our constant wrestling matches, our oversized untucked shirts, and our seldom com- 
pleted assignments. 

We assumed our role as the seniors in Junior High with, probably, more emphasis than, in fact, the role required. Grade 
9 was the year of growth spurts, high water pants and strange squeaks in male voices. We developed a compulsion to entertain 
all unfortunate motorists, from the buses. These same motorists were treated to bizarre musical interludes and juice and yoghurt 
rinses on their windshields. 

Our exalted position as Grade 9's was rapidly reduced to once again being low man on the totem pole as we entered Grade 1 0. 

Huddled under our metaphorical totem pole, we discovered that we were allowed no academic choices and that our heart- 
felt desire to be noticed by the Grade 12's was merely a pipe dream. We were struck by the strange paradox issued by our 
teachers who, while assigning us impossible amounts of homework, kept insisting that high school is the happiest time of one's life. 

While Grade 10 seemed to be serious business, fortunately comic relief was established when we had a full week to ski in 
both of Canada's official languages by day, and to explore the wacky world of self written entertainment by night! We were 
delighted to discover upon entering grade 1 1 that we could shed the self-conscious shackles of Grade 10 and become individuals 
in our own right. Unquestionably some of the teachers found our attempts to be class wits and self-proclaimed wierdos a little 
trying. We were considered to be full fledged humans by the Grade 12's and, much to the peril of the country road, many 
of us acquired our driver's licences. We learned to think beyond ourselves at Agencies and we learned to accept that Canadian 
literature does exist. 

This brings me to our graduating year. Grade 12 is a contradiction in terms. We talk endlessly of how we can't wwait to 
get out of this place and yet we band together like a group of desperate survivors not wanting to be separated from each other. 

We are a family in the truly complex definition of the word. We care, we quarrel, we forgive, we learn to be more accepting 
of our teachers and agree that, yes, they do know something. We learn to value their concern about us. Today highlights for 
us the mystical reality of joy and sadness which must accompany such an important occasion. 

I wish my fellow graduates all good things, and to those of you who are looking ahead to future graduations, may you have 

the same happiness here that we have had.
