Message from the 

Head of School 

The 2002 / 2003 school year at STS has inevitably been dominated by the avalanche which so tragically 
took the lives of our seven young Grade 10 students on 1st February, 2003. The magnitude of their loss 
and the significance to our community and particularly to their families has been overwhelming. We 
dedicate this yearbook to these seven beautiful young people in the knowledge that they would want us to 
celebrate their lives, to grieve with their families and support them in whatever ways we can, and then to 
move forward. Through the dark cloud that has hung over all that we have undertaken since the tragedy 
has shone the spirit of purpose and strong resolve that so characterizes our School; a determination to 
progress, to achieve, to share, to contribute and to remember. 

Over the course of a school year, there are so many successes and achievements that the Yearbook 
Committee have to consider, so many experiences people want recorded, so many images they want 
preserved. 2002/2003 has indeed been both a year of tragedy but also one of remarkable achievement. 
For each and every student and teacher in this school, there are different memories and priorities. This 
record is a tribute to all who have been with us this year and to the extraordinary diversity of activities and 
experiences that we have been engaged in. This School is blessed with so much talent and so much 
energy that the task of creating a true record is indeed daunting. Our thanks to Ms. Baker, Ms. Bridge, 
Ms. Dudek, Ms. Janiga-Price and their team of students for taking on this task and achieving such

Seven Snow Angels 

These days have been hard 

For all our souls and hearts 

You have been taken 

Away from us 

So much grief has spread 

Memories of you 

Fill our heads 

As you will always be remembered in our hearts 
Forever young 

Seven Snow Angels taken from earth 

Into Heaven's light 

With laughter and smiles 

They filled our lives 

Seven Snow Angels, Angels of God 

Flowers piling high 

Tears in our eyes 

We're not yet ready 

To say goodbye 

The laughs you shared 

With those for whom you cared 

Will be remembered 

In all our prayers 

We know that you will watch over us 
Our Seven Angels of Love 

Seven Snow Angels taken from earth 

Into Heaven's light 

With laughter and smiles 

They filled our lives 

Seven Snow Angels, Angels of God 

Seven Snow Angels, our Angels of love

Terry Fox 

This year, once again, the Terry Fox Run was a huge success, raising a record amount of money for the 
Canadian Cancer Society. School spirit and support from the STS community was evident when the prefects 
held a contest to see which class could raise the most money for this worthy cause. The costumes were great 
too and there were a lot of famous singers "running" around. - Zoe Suche

Christy Worsley Junior High Short Story Contest 

2002-2003 Winner: Meaghan Bridges, Grade 8 

An excerpt from "Journey to Earth" 

A child woke up from her sleep and looked out 
into the world. The sun was just rising over the 
horizon in the South. Grass was gently swaying in 
the wind, tangling with nearby wildf lowers. The sea 
was silently crashing onto the sand, with everything 
in its path being lost. A wild rooster crowed, and 
the new day had begun. 

The child's name was Ocean. Quietly, she crept 
over to where the next family slept. Another child 
was tossing and turning on his mattress. "Landon, 
can you sleep?" she whispered. 

Locke Senior High Short Story Contest 

2002-2003 Winner: Kaylee Milne, Grade 11 
An excerpt from "Wet Pavement" 

When I was younger, I hated the rain. Rain 
always meant that I had to stay inside. Inside where 
everything was dark. The carpets were brown, the 
curtains were gray. Whenever it rained I longed to 
be outside, and whenever it was nice outside I 
longed to be in. I've always been like that -- 

When I was younger, I would sit cross-legged 
on the carpet in front of the sliding glass doors that 
led out onto the patio and watch the rain. Each 
drop, perfectly formed, fell from the heavens — all 
that way — to only crash to the ground and vanish 
instantly, all shape and complexity lost. I noticed 
that rain just turned into pavement.

I will always remember my trip to Victoria with the U-15 Girls Soccer Team. I had a ton of fun! There were many 
memorable experiences, and one I will never forget was the whale watching trip. Even though we didn't see any 
whales, we saw hundreds of porpoises and sea lions. Our team improved greatly over the three day tournament, and 
we were unstoppable. I met new people, and became better friends with others. This was definitly an experience of a 
lifetime! - Sarah Lowry

This year's volleyball season finished exceptionally well. We 
played in two tournaments; finishing third at Senator Patrick 
Burns and then coming first place at the Rally Point 12 team 
tournament. We ended up coming first in the league and then 
went on to play in the divisional championships, where we 
won for the first time ever in STS history.

After winning several tournaments (including the Western

coming first in league, going undefeated through our regional

The Grade 7/8 volleyball team had a very successful season. 
They placed first in the league, won the Senator Patrick Burns 
tournament, and advanced to the regional tournament. The 
team was successful because they were consistent. If the 
match was close and the "chips were down" we always came 
out on the winning side.

Our team was coached by Mr. Numa and Mr. Koning. We 
won some games, but no matches. We improved a lot. We 
participated in tournaments in Red Deer and Calgary. We 
finished 6th out of 10 teams in Red Deer. As only 3 teams 
could go to Zones, we were out! But, the third team was 
unable to go, so we made it to Zones and went to Strathmore. 
We played our best volleyball at Zones.

did have fun though, and got to play in many different

STS Students lead world in Uniform Infractions 

UNITED NATIONS— With one in 25 students currently in detention., on suspension, or otherwise held after school on charges, the 
Strathcona Tweedsmuir School leads the world in disciplinary action against schoolchildren, the 
U.N. Human Rights Commission reported Monday. 

"There is a disturbing trend in the collective measures taken by Strathcona's educators," the 
report read. "STS is requiring its students to do time in the guidance counselor or principal's 
office three times as often as the average Westernized nation. No other school incarcerates its 
young at anywhere near that rate." 

Detailed in the 922-page document is an alarming pattern of arbitrary and discriminatory 
enforcement, uneven interpretation of rules, and unfaii punishment disproportionate to the 

"We have case study after case study of detainees being forced to clean the cafeteria, or wear 
Formal Dress, sometimes for horns at a time" Established Uniform Offenders chief William 
Hares said. "How does tins help prepare a child for a return to the classroom? A Uniform 
infractor needs to be given the tools necessary for success upon Ms or her release from detention, 
not some pointless niake-theii-uiiifoim-iliit\ - -and-look-even-\\'oise punishment "

ven more disturbing, a 
'hopping 82 percent of 

Strathcona students are repeat offenders Tins stands in sharp contrast to 
jermany, where only one detainee in 50 serves a second sentence in the 
ame school year, 

I" The STS detention system is a revolving door," Director of Mischief 
ISimon Abbott said "It is not a deterrent. It's a badge of honor for some of 
hese lads. We've got kids in detention now who are 10 years old and are 
going to be in and out of there until they're 18. Then what? And what 
about the lad who goes in not knowing how serious it is and comes out with 
a blot on his pennanent record and a newfound knowledge of how to untuck 
then shut with no one noticing, or wearing improper shoes 0 " 
Main' STS educators disputed the report's findings.
