Message From the Head - 

Paidia 1999 

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.

and prey on the city mice

begin with one of Mr. Porter's 
stories, but Cowboy Colborne 
had other ideas for him so that 
the show could go on!

worked hard to perfect their 
songs... hard work when you're 
in grade one! 

Middle right: Jackie Sole and friends extol the virtues of living in 
the country 

Bottom right: The city mice prefer the more sophisticated life 


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 
S7/7/ Stands the House.

Elemental} Walk-Run 

In September, all of the elementary 
students participated in the annual 
\\ alk run. as a w arm-up to the 
s^hool-wule l"err\ I'm Run. The 
First fully participatory event of the 
elemental") school calendar had 
our youngest students putting

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. 

By Mrs. C. Duncan-Moore 


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- 
ticipate in either the five or ten 
kilometre course. This year's theme, as 
created by the Prefects, was "Around 
the World", and was another highly 
successful Run.

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 
Native legends. 

Mrs. P. Nash 

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! !

Kate G., and Jeff K.,4B 

Four J 

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.

Grade 7 Ski Week 

Fun in the Snow by 7C 

( i rade 7 ski \\ eek was the highlight of the year. In January 
logo, we journeyed to the back country of Banff National 
Park for a big adventure. This was the week when we 
probabb learned more about fitness and the outdoors than any 
other week of our lives. Also, we learned about hostel 
manners: being polite, cleaning up after ourselves, and 
respecting other people. What a great trip.

It was a whole day of entertainment - comedy, tragedy, 
drama and complete outrageousness from all categories 
and grades. Although there could only be one winner 
per category, Speech Day showcased some of the 
impressive dramatic talents of S.T.S. students. This year 
was also quite different from previous years, with the 
appearance of Poetry Recitation and Impromptu 
Speech in Top Acts. Overall, the entire event was fun 
and entertaining for students, teachers and the audience 
- it was definitely a success for 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 


Senior High 

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. 

An excerpt from/l Legacy by Jonathan Woodward 




The Christy Worsley Poetry Contest 

1999 Winner: Samantha Ewan, Grade 9 

/ am someone small. 
But there. 

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.

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 

from Individual 

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

It's the same each time 

the anticipation 

a hope that this time... 

I hold my breath, 
close my eyes... 

your name - again 

To trade places 
just once 

What would it be like? 

( 'heersforyou: glory 
for inc. "nice try" 
"better luck next time " 

So here I sit 
and there you stand 
applause in my hands, 
in vour ears. 

I should be happy 
andsettle for my place, still, 
nothing hurts quite like

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.

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." 
- Sydney Schwartz, Grade 1 1 



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." 
- Alice Buckee, Grade 12

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

debaters Safiya Karim, Faizal 


\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 
her home with her husband. Garry, and two young

Mom and Dad : I can't thank you two 
enough for all you two have done for me. 
You pushed me when I needed pushing and 
you helped me when I needed helping. You 
have both given me a life that I am grateful 
for. You have shown me the world and 
shown me how to deal with it. I thank you 
with all of my heart. On a lighter note, I 
just wanted to say that it will only be a few 
more years till you have all of us kids out 
of the house. Try to hold the joy back. 
Thanks again and I love you. 

Shawn and Andrew : What would I have 
been without you two. Simple, not bruised 
and battered. Just joking. I just wanted to 
thank both of you for helping me through 
this part of my life. Thanks, and I love ya! 
I wish ya both the best. 

Harry and Betty : H & B. You have given me a lot of memories and stories to remember over the years. I just want to

Where is this place we call our home'.' 
What holds the space where all stars roam ? 
1 sit here thinking about the origin of life. 
And that which creates all of our strife. 
Wonder and confusion are not strange to me. 
For there's many things 1 have yet to see. 
Will my questions ever become clear? 
Can 1 explain all that I fear'.' 
This question must sit. for the moment, untold. 
While life goes on, and my mind grows old. 
Then maybe someday I'll discover the truth. 
To the secrets of our convoluted youth.

The Invitation 

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living 
I want to know what you ache for 
And if you dare to dream of meeting your 
heart's longing. 

It doesn't interest me how old you are. 

I want to know if you will risk looking like a 


for love 

for your dream 

for the adventure of being alive. 

it doesn't interest me what planets are squaring 

your moon... 

I want to know if you have touched the center 

of your own 


if you have been open to life's betrayals 

or have become shrivelled and closed 

from fear of further pain. 

I want to know if you can sit with pain 

mine of your own 

wihout moving to hide it 

or fade it 

or fix it. 

I wnat to know if you be with joy 
mine or your own 

if you can dance with with wilderness 

and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your 

fingers and toes 

without cautioning us to 

be careful 

be realistic 

to remember the limitations of being human 
it doesn't interest me if the story vou are telling 

is true. 

I want to know if you can 

disappoint another 

to be true to yourself. 

If you can bear the accusation of betra\ al 

and not betray your own soul 

If you can be faithless 

and therefore trustworthy 

I want to know if you can see beauty 

even when it is not pretty 


And if you can source your own life 
from its presence 

I want to know it y ou can live with failure 
yours and mine and still stand on the edge of 
the lake 

and shout to the silver ot the tull moon 


It doesn't interest me 

to know where you live or how much nione\ 
you ha\ e 

I want to knoyv if you can get up alter the night 

of grief and despair 

weary and bruised to the bone 

and do what needs to be done 

to leed the children 

It doesn't interest me who y ou know 

or how you came to be here 

I want to know if you will stand 

in the centre of fire 

with me 

and not shrink back 

It doesn't interest me when.' or what or with 

you have studied 

I want to know what sustains you 

from the inside 

when alt else falls away 

I want to know it vou can be alone 

with yourself 

and if you truly like the company vou keep 
in the empty moments

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. 

by Alexandra Bell and Nicole Burns, grade 1 1 


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. 
- Ms. D. Carlson
