Message From the Head -
Mr. G. Freight, Head of School, joins Alumni at a Vancouver reunion.
L to R. : Randlredale (SSB '44), Shauna Koppang (STS '78), and Erin Willumsen (STS '80)
It is indeed a privilege to have been asked to lead Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School into
the new millenium. The School has seen many changes over the course of the years of my
career at STS. At the same time, there exists a solid foundation of tradition built upon the
support of so many people: students, staff, parents and friends. It is the combination of
these changes with our traditions that helps us keep our vision and goals in clear
This edition of the School yearbook reflects the many and varied activities which thrive
in our community. My congratulations go out to Mrs. Penny Nash, faculty advisor, and
her team of enthusiastic students for their inspirational work which chronicles another
phase in our School history. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.
Gordon D. Freight, Head of School
In November 1998, Mrs. Colborne and Mrs. Stewart joined creative
forces once again to bring us "Mouse Country", a musical that
retold the Stor) of the City Mouse and the Country Mouse. All
elementary students and some junior high dancers took part in this
wonderfully entertaining production.

AN EVENING OF DRAMA:
FOUR SHORT PLAYS
Also in November, the drama department staged a series of short plays, involving mainly senior high
students. Mr. Prost and Mr. Tottenham produeed a little taste of everything, from the spooky Sorry
Wrong Number and Dracula to the more lighthearted scenes from The Princess Bride and the dramatic

Grade 6 tree-planting was another elementary event in September.
Carol Engstrom, an alumna of our School, contacted the Elemen-
tary, inviting classes to participate in the process of reclaiming the
area by planting seedlings. It was felt that this would be a wonder-
ful learning opportunity and a valuable experience towards taking
an active role in becoming more aware of the interactions of
humans and their impact on the environment.

Terry Fox Run '98
The Terry Fox Run is a long-standing
tradition at S.T.S., and we are proud of
the donations we have raised for can-
cer research over the years. All stu-
dents and teachers are expected to par-

kilometre course. This year's theme, as
created by the Prefects, was "Around

A Night In a Tipi!
\s their first junior high outdoor experience at
S.T.S.. the grade seven classes spent a night in
September camping in tipis on the Peigan Indian
Resen e. The experience brought greater cultural
awareness about Alberta's First Nations, as well as
allow bag the students to get to know their new
classmates better. Students were led on a tour of
the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Interpretive
Centre, and later were able to participate in activi-
ties including drumming, cooking bannock, mak-
ing dreamcatchers, and learning about various

In September 1998 the grade
4" s went on a trip to Camp
Horizon, in Bragg Creek. The
purpose of this trip was to
bring the curriculum "alive"
in an outdoor environment.
As well as to provide enrich-
ment, this experience allowed
the grade 4's to have more
trust and respect for their
fellow peers. From the grade
4's point of view, this
experience was a BLAST! !

During the week of September 13 th , 1998 the grade 10' s
ventured up to beautiful Kananaskis country for a week of
intense physical activity (and a little nonsense too). This
was the time to make new friends or to rekindle old ones; a
time for the graduating class of 2002 to be together.
Throughout the week students were divided up into groups
to take part in rock climbing, white water canoeing, or
mountain biking. This week was not for the faint of heart!
Many students were seen shining in their newfound
activities that they will revisit in PE throughout the
remainder of their high school career. One of the high-
lights of the week was the bridal pageant. Students were
equipped with a single roll of toilet paper and were asked
to become the next Alfred Sung of the bridal world. The
week was fabulous, the weather was awesome and a good
time was had by all.

The Christy Worsley Creative Writing Award
1999 Winner: Kim Milne, Grade 9
As I stare out at the tossing waters of the Pacific Ocean I think how uncanny it is that they resemble my feel-
ings. Dark, misty and confured - not knowing which direction to turn or where to go. They then slide up on shore,
licking the rocks and sighing back to where they came from. I breathe the smell of salt and seaweed in deeply.
The calming smell invades my nostrils. I don't feel any better. Weird, I think, as I stand and begin to walk. The
ocean always makes me feel better. Why is today any different?
An excerpt from ft Can Happen to You by Kim Milne
The Locke Short Story Award
1999 Winner: Jonathan Woodward, Grade 12
rhe Matrix was a world inside a world. Within its seeming ehaos operated everything the human race did online. It
ontained the messages of billions of lovers, trillions of corporations, many more people and identities. As every axon fired
nd particle moved, sodid the information of the world. And yet to gaze in il one would not realize its complexity and
irder- it would be only a chaotic mass of lightning, electrical blue.

/ am someone small.
Though the world would still run.
If I was not here,
something would be missing.
If a thred in a sweater,
Was gone from its place,
You still wear the sweater,
But a hole would take its place.
For no matter how little,
Or useless we feel,
We still have a role to play.
If not for ourselves,
For the people around us.
People who still need to learn.
Susan Nelson, Grade 9
from Killing Illusion
A cold wind,
Slithering up under a jacket,
biting at exosed skin,
Hissing in numb ears.
Then a collar is snugged around the neck,
Of a passer-by.
The bums are asleep in the alleys,
Under cardboard shanties.
The clang of a coin dropped into an old tin
And the pathetic thank-you muttered
Are barely heard
Kim Sproule, Grade 9
You tell me I am wrong
You tell me I'm not right
Because I'm being strong and independent
Because I stand up tall
'Cause I refuse to fall
I only want to be my own person
'Cause I'm an individual

On March 26, 1 999. a group of 44 students and parents of S.T.S.
embarked on a 1 6-day tour of China and Hong Kong. The tour
me luded visits to Hanzhou, Beijing, Guilin and finally Hong Kong.
Perhaps the greatest difference between Canada and China for
most of the group was the food. Rebecca and Randy Otto and
Mr. and Mrs. ( )rsten were quite adventurous, trying delicacies
such as snake, snake's blood, and snake carcass soup. The
cultural experience was enhanced by visits to Buddhist temples,
i he Children's Palace, a Beijing home, the various night markets,
and the Forbidden City. After leaving mainland China for Hong
Kong, the drastic differences that ensued created an atmosphere
of appreciation and thankfulness for the basic amenities - food,
space and shelter - that we Canadians take for granted each day.
The land of the Orient certainly made for a fun-filled and intense
holiday for the group from S.T.S.

During Easter vaction, the following grade nine and ten students, led by Mrs. McCarthy and
Mrs. Adam, visited Greece and Italy. In Greece, the group visited Athens and Delphi . The
students enjoyed visiting the sites they had learned about in Greek mythology. In Italy, we
toured Sorrento, the Isle of Capri, Rome and Florence. The trip was a \\ onderful cultural
xperience and everyone came home with special memories to cherish. Throwing a coin into
Rome's Trevi fountain ensured that all would be back to visit one day.

THE DAVID LANIER
Scenic and Nature Category
The other ni^ht I was closing the blinds, when I saw the tree covered in rain drops. They looked like diamonds
in the street light. In all the eleven years I've known that tree, it never struck me as it did at that moment, so I
needed to take a photo. I like the way I was able to hide the light source behind a trunk, the way the sidewalk and
road shone, and the spidery, dewy look of the branches. I really love the way the tree's shadow is thrown so
distinctly, and how the light looms in mid air."

Human Interest Category
"Both Kate's and my parents left us together for a weekend. It was a lot of fun, however we both require
solitude. Kate had to climb a tree, out of reach (although the tree in the corner seems to stretch its spindly
fingers to try and pull her down from her perch) to think about it all. A different perspective? Pensive."

The 98/99 Senior Girls' basketball team
enjoyed an intensely competitive season.
While their league play was highly
spirited, a few strategic losses kept them
from qualifying for zone playoffs. Their
tournament play was generally more
successful, capturing a gold medal at the
Sundre tournament. That weekend also
earned them a spot in Sundre' s history
books, as the wackiest dressers ever to
frequent their movie theatre! Great

\K Caroline Baldwin came to S.T.S. in
1997 from Squamish, B.C. A former nurse,
she taught science and chemistry, and
coached the junior 'B* girls' basketball
teams during her two years here. In May.
she gave birth to Renata, and since has
moved to Victoria with her husband, an
English professor at UVic.
Mr. Gary Bauman has been a part of S.T.S.
for 28 years, as an elementary homeroom
teacher, coach, and most recently a junior
high math and social studies teacher. He
now retires to a quieter life, at home with his
wife Marlys. Student support for Mr.
Bauman was evidenced by the standing
ovation he received at Prizegiving.
Mr. Bill Jones has been the Head of
Senior High at S.T.S., moving here from
Brooks seven years ago. He has taught
English and CALM, and has led many
outdoor trips, treasuring those which
allowed him to be on his mountain bike!
Mr. Jones has been an advocate for his
students on countless occasions, and has
guided so many of them in their post-
secondary choices. He has been ap-
pointed Head of School at Southridge
School in White Rock, B.C.
Mrs. Donna Sundstrom has been an elemen-
tary French teacher since 1989. Her work has
been a family affair: husband Vern is a
frequent substitute in the elementary, and son
Kyle is a grad this year. Mme. Sundstrom may
be retiring, but look for her to return for visits
and perhaps as a substitute!
Mrs. Tracy Thorbjornsen was a member of the S.T.S.
class of 1985, and joined the staff in November 19^7 as
the new receptionist. She will be remembered for her
incredible ability to keep track of all of the students in
all parts of the school. She leaves us to w ork out of

UNIVERSITY TOUR 1999
On Friday, March 26, 1 999, 38 grade eleven students and three teacher chaperones ventured
off on an Eastern Universities Tour. On this trip we gained an appreciation for the number of
excellent universitites that are available to us in Ontario and Quebec. Not only were we able to
envision ourselves at certain schools, but we were more than eager to leave our high school
years behind us and join in the fun a year early .
Along with touring the various universities, we had time to sightsee, relax, and - our favourite -
spend time with friends. Between visiting the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, enjoying fine
dining at Mr. Numa' s brother' s restaurant in Montreal , and hanging out at the pool, our days
were never dull.
Ms. Harper, Mr. Numa, and Mrs. Skelly were terrific chaperones, at times having to answer 38
questions all at once. Without them, this trip would not have been the same.

CELEBRATING ART 30
I am always impressed by the qualities it takes to succeed in the artroom. Commitment drives everything... it also takes a
mature, focused, organized, resourceful and bright student to envision and create her work. "Everyday there is opportunity.
Everyday in Art you are testing yourself and your skills. "
Art comes together best when driven by a strong sense of spirit and passion. This class created a unique studio environmen
where each girl mattered. The girls supported each other in their work and in the many layers of experience that takes place
in the student's graduating year. Their hangout was no longer in the rotunda. These girls made their home in their studio.
Art 30 has become a stronger course because of this group. Their energy, spirit and quality of work is the new benchmark.
These students may never become visual artists in the future. But what they takeaway from this class is the
knowledge that they are caring and they matter. With these attributes, they can imagine, dream and create.
whatever I i fe they choose.
Thank you Art 30, for a great year. You have a permanent place in my heart.
