I have thoroughly enjoyed ray first year at STS as the Middle School Principal and I appreciate the warm welcome that I 
have received this year. STS is a special place where newcomers are made to feel welcome in a vibrant school community. 
This is a community where there is great commitment from parents, teachers, and students to fulfill STS' mission of inspiring 
excellence in 'Scholarship, Leadership, and Character 1 . Events such as the Terry Fox Run, Dan Arato Day, Speech Day, 
and the Middle School Track and Field Meet have for me, highlighted our students' and faculty 's commitment and enthusiasm. 
I appreciated the willingness of our students to help others through service initiatives such as the Bridgeland Manor visits 
and the Heaven Can Wait fundraiser. I have been impressed by our students as they have competed on our sports teams, 
performed in concerts, and produced wonderful works of art. I appreciate the Grade 9 class for their leadership in our 
assemblies, for volunteering to be student leaders on so many trips, and for being wonderful role models in the Middle 
School. To all students, thank you for a great year. 

as been another great year at STS! This is due in large part to the great student body we have and their participation in 
everything that we do. Just take a look at the number of students who participated in the following activities this year: 165 
students involved in Athletics, 100 students involved in Roundsquare, service and school sponsored events, 95 students 
involved in Model UN and Speech and Debate, and another 70 students involved in band and the musical. When you think 
thai our total student population in the senior high is 270, these are quite amazing numbers. A school can only be great and 
special by what you put into it. When we look back on our year, I would say thai these words could be used to describe the 
senior high. A special thank you goes out to the teachers and the parents for making this all happen and for making STS a 
truly special place for our students. 

This September, we will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the amalgamation of Strathcona School for Boys and Tweedsmuir: 
An Academic School for Girls here on our beautiful country campus. Over the last 40 years, Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School 
has certainly evolved and during that time it has produced thousands of graduates who are making a positive and profound 
impact on the world. And while the School has changed over time, it has also preserved so many of the elements that have 
produced such fine graduates over the years including strong values, an emphasis on academics, well-roundedness, public 
speaking, service to others and co-curricular programs proven to develop strong character and leadership abilities. Many of 
these elements can be traced back to the roots of our founding schools, but they are clearly still present here today as evidenced 
by the scope of your involvement in so many activities this year. 

I know that you have all learned a great deal this year through your classroom studies. And outside of the classroom there were 
terrific opportunities provided by things like the musicals Footloose and A Kid's Life. You showcased your talents and learning 
through events like the PYP Film Festival, band concerts and art shows, and tested your physical abilities in athletics, triathlons 
and outdoor education trips. Speech Days were amazing and we excelled at debating tournaments and Model UN's. You helped 
to meet the needs of others through service projects like the Dominican Republic trip and the Right to Sight Project. You showed 
your competitive spirit in athletics and won three provincial championships. Together this vast array of activities provided 
numerous opportunities to develop leadership and character and I have seen the evidence of these important attributes in your 
actions countless times throughout this year. I know that you have made your teachers proud on many occasions. 

I would like to thank the Yearbook Committee who under the capable leadership of Ms. Johnson have captured many of this 
year's special moments in words and images. I hope that as you leaf through the pages that follow, they will evoke memories 
that you will cherish for a lifetime. 

William Jones 

I would like to wish to congratulated all students on an exciting and active year at STS. Student engagement in all activities 
throughout the school year adds greatly to their experience and memories of the years that they spend in school. STS provides 
many opportunities for student to challenge themselves cognitively, physically, musically, dramatically as well as build a sense 
of social conscience that contributes to the whole experience. Well done! 

The Prefects are a group of elected Grade 12 students who are role models for 
the student body, ambassadors of the school and organizers for all of the major 
school events. They are a group who embody the ideal virtues of an STS student: 
Scholarship, Leadership, and Character. Whether planning the Winter Formal 
or choosing a theme for the Terry Fox Run, the Prefects work around the clock, 
dedicating early mornings and late nights to make each and every event a special 
and memorable occasion. 


To aspiring prefects: Have fun with it. After all the planning, 
become a part of the event. Then you also get to enjoy the 
success of what you have created.

Our Beautiful Campus 

Grade 4 teacher heading to 
warmer climes 

Beloved Grade 4 teacher, Ms Clara Watson, retired in June 201 1 after 13 years teaching at STS. Ms Watson grew up in Tucson. 
Arizona and moved to Canada with her husband Bob to settle near his family in Eastend, Saskatchewan in 1979. She began her 
teaching career that fall. In 1999 she started teaching at STS full time and immediately became a valued member of our community and 

a guiding force in the elementary family. 

Over the years, Ms Watson made significant contributions to STS She was a member of the laptop pilot group and the Primary Years 

Programme (PYP) steering committee in its inaugural years. As Division II curriculum leader, she provided leadership based on 
optimism, practicality and achievable goals for Grades 4 to 6 students. As a PYP Exhibition mentor, Ms Watson applied those same 
leadership skills to help students develop in this independent project. Outside of the curriculum-based aspects of her career, she served 
as teacher sponsor for the Elementary Environment Club, the Grade 4 Recycling Project, the Chess Club and the Grade 6 leadership 
groups. After 23 years of teaching, she is ready for a new adventure! STS wishes Ms Watson the very best of luck in the next stage of 

her life.

Raising our spirits in the middle of February, 
the prefects plan a week of activities to help us 
show off our school and house pride. 

It's hard to feel spirited in February. Winter holidays are long since past and it will be at least another five weeks until 
Spring Break. The days are cold and by the time we leave school and climb onto the late bus to head home, it's already 
dark out. In fact, it's usually dark when we get to school too - we could go an entire month without seeing the sunshine! 
Thank goodness, then, for STS Spirit Week. From donning bright and crazy house-colour costumes to pie fights, from 
balloon stomps to high school dances, the week is filled with fun activities, projects and events that help us forget about 
the cold winter weather outside. This year, Round Square teamed up with the prefect team in order to set up events 
that helped to build school spirit and helped others in need. For example, over lunch time we worked together to build 
sandwiches for homeless Calgarians as part of the "Spread the Love" campaign. The middle school participated in 
Dan Arato Day, a full day, multi-grade team challenge, and the elementary got to "stomp" balloons! We look forward 
to another Spirit Week next February!

Grade 9 Dinner Dance 

After a week of rain, it was a gorgeous, but windy, day 
on Saturday, May 28th, for the Grade 9 dinner and 
dance. This year's event was held at the Canyon 
Meadows Golf and Country Club in Calgary, where 
students gathered to eat, dance and present speeches 
and slideshows that captured the best moments of 
their time in the Middle School. Almost all of their 
teachers joined them for the event. A special 
appearance was made by Grade 9 band 'Raj and the 
Rajtones', who played for the crowd and got everyone 
out on the dancefloor. Many of the dresses this year 
were soft skintones like champagne and pale pink. 
Most girls chose to wear their hair in soft, flowing 
waves. The boys looked sharp in suits and ties. 

Thanks goes to Ms Haufort for her last year of 
organizing this great event - we'll miss you

Georgetown University a Great Experience for Model UN 

In February of 201 1 , the STS Model UN Programme sent 38 delegates to Washington, D.C. for six days to participate in the 48th 
North American Invitational Model United Nations hosted by Georgetown University. This is one of the longest running and most 
prestigious Model UNs in the world and attracts over 3000 high school delegates to the conference every year. Highlights of the 
trip included our visits to the Smithsonian museums, the Washington Monument, the World War Two, Vietnam and Lincoln 
Memorials, the Georgetown University campus and an intimate night of great jazz at the Black Fox Lounge. 

Our results at our first outing at this challenging simulation in international diplomacy were outstanding. The following students 
are to be commended for the recognition they received from their peers during the closing ceremonies: 

Michael Molyneaux '1 3, Georgia Forbes '12, Bronwyn Valentine '1 2 , Lucas Kemp '12, Tiandra Ceyhan '1 2, Emily McNeil '1 3 and 
Kate MacFarlane '13. Special acknowledgement goes to Madison Milne-lves '13 and Sunny Yen '13 who earned Honourable

STS Team Shines at Stanford 

On November 10, 2010, 40 STS students departed for STS' first attendance at the 
Stanford Model United Nations (UN) Conference. The opportunity to participate in a 
Model UN simulation at one of America's most renowned post-secondary institutions 
attracted the largest group of Spartans ever assembled for a Model UN. For 30 of 
these students, this was their first Model UN conference outside of STS and all were 
eager to dive into the world of simulated diplomacy. Their performance at this unique 
and challenging conference was exemplary and they laid a solid foundation as well 
as high expectations for next year's group. 

The following students received acknowledgment by their committees: 
Austin Miller '11 and Bronwyn Valentine '12, Summit of World Leaders 2015; Katie 
Henry '1 1 , International Court of Justice; Mitchell Park '12, UN Economic and Social 
Council; Seth Carson '13, Chinese Politburo; Tamara Itani '11, 1974 Cyprus Crisis 
Cabinet; and Alistair Morton '13, 1974 Turkey Crisis Cabinet. 

The following students were called to the stage and formally recognized for their 
exemplary and in-depth research as well as their skilfully crafted position papers: 
BrettonChad'12, Iranian Cabinet; Riley Waterous '13, UN Development Programme; 
Robert Belanger '11, UN Economic and Social Council; and Lucy Luo '11, World 
Health Organization. 

Those students recognized with Honourable Mention and a certificate were: 
Erik Jorgenson '1 1 and Tegan Valentine '1 1 , representing North Korea in the Summit 
of World Leaders 2015; Alykhan Bhanji '12, representing Guatemala in the

Security Council. 

Earning the designation of Outstanding Delegate in their committees were:

terms of the number of participants and 
the success that our students had in 
competition. Overall, it was a fantastic 
and rewarding year. Highlights of our 
season include AN Poonja '12 being 
selected as an alternate for the

with Elspeth Yates '14 and Maria 
Golubev '14. All three had a very 
successful trip. This year, we also had a 
record number of Middle and Senior 
school students compete at the regional 
speech tournament, which gave them to 
chance to qualify for provincials. The 
provincial tournament took place at 
Forest Lawn High School on February 
26th. The STS team brought home 12 


The Senior High debate team finished 
their season with strong showings in a 
number of tournaments. At the coveted 
Winston Churchill Debate in Calgary, 
Ariela Karmel '13 and Thomas Dunlop 
'13 won gold as a team, and Ariela was 
named the top speaker of the 
tournament. Ali Poonja '12 placed 4th 
overall. The Regional Competition was 
the last formal event for the club. The 
topic was, "This House would not 
release the identities of young offenders 
convicted with criminal offenses." The 
competition was quite intense with our 
team of Mitchell Park '12 and Zachary 
Carson '12 making it to the finals in 
which they debated the last impromptu 
topic in front of a large group of parents, 
coaches and volunteers. The topic was, 
"This house would ban the use of

Wednesday marked one of the longest standing traditions at 
STS - Speech Day. Whether it was an eloquent interpretive 
reading, a persuasive speech, a unique act,or a spur-of-the- 
moment impromptu performance, Speech Day continues to be 
one of the highlight events of the year. The art and importance 
of public speaking is absolutely embedded in our very history 
and culture. Once again, we are thrilled at the collective level of 
talent and expertise showcased not only on Speech Day, but in 

the past number of weeks as every student at STS in the 
Middle and Senior School has performed for their classmates 
and teachers. We are always impressed with the level of 
commitment and enthusiasm our students exhibit. It is this 
quality which really distinguishes us as a School. J J

The Band Played On 

The STS band program has a long history of involvement and excellence. Students from Grades 7-1 2 specialize 
in an instrument and receive professional instruction from members of the community, as well as from the two 
band teachers, Mr. Uzick and Mrs Cooper. Band gives students great opportunities to take part in camps and 
trips, such as this year's Senior Band trip to Austria. This year, STS band students were extremely fortunate to 
spend a week working with STS alum and professional composer David Pierce, who recently composed the 
music for the opening ceremonies at the Vancouver Olympics. Working with accomplished musicians has 
proven to be very valuable for our students, who are frequently awarded with high commendations at Calgary

The STS Senior Band trip to Austria over the Spring Break 
marked the final band trip for Grade 12 students, and it most 
definitely lived up to our expectations. In Salzburg, we visited 
Mozart's birthplace, toured the old quarter of the city, went 
on a Sound of Music tour and played our first concert. On 
our way to Vienna, we stopped for a night's stay in a real 15th 
century castle where we enjoyed a private concert, amazing 
dinner and tour. In Vienna, we toured the Vienna Opera 
House, saw the graves of Beethoven, Brahms and other 
famous classical composers, and got to see Schonbrunn, the 
summer palace of the Habsburg family who ruled Austria for 
hundreds of years. We even saw the room where Mozart 
played one of his first concerts at the age of four. 

We performed How to Train Your Dragon, Salvation is Created, 
Fanfare for the Common Man, Toccata, Rondo (from Prelude, 
Siciliano and Rondo), Radetzky March and Silent Stands the 
Elm in the chapel at Schonbrunn, Krems Music School and a 
beautiful cathedral in the heart of Vienna that was so big the 
echo after each note we played seemed to go on forever. We 
visited the cemetery where Mozart was buried and heard a 
beautiful Mozart and Strauss concert with ballet dancers, 
opera singers and a chamber orchestra. We even got a chance 
to see Madame Butterfly at the Vienna Opera House. 

The experiences, memories and beautiful sights and sounds 
of Austria will stay with us long after we graduate.

Based on a myth about the gentle people located in 

Patagonia, Grade 7 students selected visual 
symbols and images from the story and interpreted 
them using the elements and principles of design. 
Additionally, along with acrylic paint, students 
learned 3 new mixed media techniques. 

Acrylic and mixed media on canvas 

Grade 8 students were asked to examine their current 

stage of life. How do they see themselves? How do 
they want to be treated? What's changing in their lives 

and what are they looking forward to? Students 
designed their own imagery based on symbolism, and 
traditional african designs to express their identity. 

Acrylic and raffia on cardboard 

Based on a random

such as rock star, artist

Captivating Creativity 

STS Student Sends Art to Thailand 

Emily Johnson '11 was 
commissioned to create a piece 
of art work to send to the 
International Round Square 
conference in Thailand, which 
was attended by a group of STS 
delegates. The theme of the 
conference was "We Walk 
Together"; Emily's work, entitled 
"Canadian Together", depicts 
regional imagery, including the 
Calgary tower and the local 
foothills and mountains, which 
are painted in the style of Lauren 
Harris, a member of the Group 
of Seven. Emily's work is a 
tribute to Terry Fox, and 
suggests the unity of the 
Canadian community through 
the use of maple leaf as a 
metaphor for Canadians 
running. The autumnal colours 
of red and yellow refer to the time 
of the year when the Terry Fox 
Run takes place.

High School Artists Celebrate a Year of Creativity 

The art department had another fabulous year of creativity! Starting 
off in the fall with the Art 30 wearable art pieces, the school was 
instantly amazed with the calibre of work from the students. The fall 
art show was a great success, equally matched with it's counterpart 
in the spring! Some highlights from the year include the Art 30 trip to 
Vancouver for their wearable art fashion show, the Art 20 trip to ACAD, 
and the fabulous fashion show for the Art 10 Fascinator project!

"The silence is the worst part. The sheer, cold silence

for her. No match for her strength, her power, her 
silence. I wish I was strong, I wish I could tell her 
what really happened. But I am weak. Weak, and fragile, and quiet. I was 
not the popular one, she was. And I was her puppet, to be at her beck 
and call and follow her around. I am no longer her puppet. But I am weak, 
and it is my weakness that brought this about, not my strength. Of course, 
I would be his next victim, the perfect target, I was no stranger to him, I

"Elaina also finally got a look at the thing whose

A creature she had done extensive reading on when studying the Old Tongue 
of Kasai. A creature she had described to her when the Knights informed her 
and her mother about her father's demise. 

Ivory talons and teeth that could rip a person to shreds in mere seconds, 
emerald green scales that repelled even the strongest sword, powerful limbs 
and a tail that could knock over stone walls like they were mud, huge wings 
that could climb to the highest mountain in the land, bright eyes that saw into 
your very soul and a roar that made even the most brutal and bloodthirsty 
warriors quake in fear. Only one word came to mind when naming the beast

The theme of the 2010 Round Square Conference 
at the Regents School in Pattaya, Thailand was 
"We Walk Together". This theme was brought to 
life through interactive and meaningful events 
and activities held at the conference as well by the 
key note speakers. This main theme was divided 
into 40 subthemes which included 'We Inspire 
Together', 'We Express Together' and 'We Learn 
Together'. The delegates attending the conference 
(Ibrahim Itani '13, Georgia Forbes '12, Michelle 
McKay '12, Hannah Medwid '13, Isaac Niles '13 
and Ashleigh Corbiel '12) were clearly able to see 
the message that as a global community, we need 
to move forward together towards a better future 
and that it will not happen unless "We Walk 
Together". Thanks to Mr. Mercer and Ms Haufort 
for being our trip leaders.

Ellie Gilchrist 'i6 Reflects on the Middle School Conference and Service Trip 

On Sunday, February 13, 201 1 , four Middle School students left for Montreal to learn about homelessness and help people in the streets 
through the Lower Canada College's Share the Warmth conference. We learned about the severity of homelessness. Did you know 
that up to 300,000 people live on the streets and that a third of them are between the ages of 12 and 25? Ainsley MacDougall '15, Taylor 
Poscente '16, Jett Palframan '16, and I built many new relations with students our age from around the world including Peru, Singapore. 
Australia and Denmark. A very strong message that all speakers talked about was that those without homes need love and kindness 
as much as anyone. They don't necessarily want money; they just want a smile, a wave or a few simple words of acknowledgment to 
reassure them that others believe in their humanity. We need to give every single child, man and woman the chance to change. 



Grade 8 Language Trips 

STS students are fortunate enough to get to travel 
to many different locations throughout their time at 
the School, including the Grade 8 language trips 
that go to locales where Spanish and French are 
spoken. This year, the Spanish students went to 
Havana, Cuba, where they visited various cultural 
sites, learned different Cuban dance styles, and had 
the opportunity to visit a school and meet 6th grade 
students from Havana. In Quebec city, French 
students stayed at the Chateau Frontenac, explored 
the historic lower town and the ice palace, visited a 
Cabane a Sucre, went snow-shoeing, and did many 
other exciting cultural activities. After the trip, 
students raved about the experience; not only did 
they get to practise their language skills, they made 
new friends, learned to be more independent and to 
appreciate other cultures and the value of travel.

Terry Fox Run 

In fall 2010, STS made an outstanding contribution to the Terry Fox 
Foundation, raising close to $29,000. Added to our 24 previous years, our 
25 year total is more $494,000 for Cancer research. There is no doubt that 
next year, with all the support from family and friends, that STS will pass 
the half million mark. This coming year is sure to be extra special - besides 
passing the x h million dollar mark, we are also celebrating our 40th year of 
STS on this country campus, and all alumni are invited to come and 
participate in the Terry Fox Run. Strathcona Tweedsmuir School is one of 
the top fundraising schools in Alberta! STS is a community built solidly on 
tradition and history and the Terry Fox Run is a fantastic example of this, 
this year, the entire school community dressed up in their house colours for 
the futuristic theme. Although the temperature was very cold for early 
September, students managed to stay warm and keep a positive attitude

On August 11, Ms. Delanoy, Mr. Boulianne, Mr. Schneider and 
twenty-two STS students departed for Paris to begin a 13-day 
European History Tour which would cover over 2000 kilometers as 
the group traveled through northern France, the Flanders region of 
Belgium and then on to Munich in southern Bavaria. The trip was 
two years in the making and represented a concerted effort with the 
Social Studies department to give the students the opportunity to 
learn beyond the four walls of their classroom and walk through their 
History lessons. To this end, the trip focused on the birth of 
nationalism the growth of nationalism and the consequences of 

Paris was devoted to The Enlightenment, the French Revolution, the 
Napoleonic Wars, and of course, sightseeing. Ypres was dedicated to 
the consequences of World War I, with visits to the Menin Gate, the 
Somme, Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele as well as side stops at Dieppe 
and Juno Beach. The last leg of the trip took the group to Munich 
where the focus was on World War II and the consequences of 
ultranationalism where there was a walking tour of Munich to 
important sites of Hitler and the Nazis, a trip to the Dachau 
Concentration Camp and the SS Firing Range. The heavy hearts that 
were created after these experiences were lifted slightly when the 
final day of the trip consisted of a trip to Hitler's sanctuary The Eagle's 
Nest up an alp with a fantastic view in beautiful Bavarian 

This trip could not have been possible without the help of students, 
parents, teachers, the Social Studies Department and of course the 
guides, Steven Coats and Stephen Whitehorn. Thank You so much! 

Stephen Whitehorn explaining events at 
Dachau Concentration Camp 

"I thought that the Vimy Ridge memorial was my most 
memorable part of the trip. The entire trip was absolutely 

amazing, I learned so much about the history of World 
War One and Two, as well as my classmates and teachers. 

It was such an amazing experience to travel with such 
knowledgeable teachers as Mr. Schneider, Mr. Boulianne 
and Ms. Delanoy, and I will remember that trip for the rest 
of my life." - Katie Henry

School wasn't quite out for the 
summer, as 15 Senior High students 
spent 10 days in Spain at the 
beginning of July 2010, traveling, 
practicing their Spanish and visiting 
many of the country's most beautiful 
historic sites. The trip began in 
Madrid, where the students took 
Spanish lessons and went to see 
some of the world's best Flamenco 
dancers. The second stop was 
Toledo, which was definitely 
everyone's favourite location. It was 
stunningly beautiful, and included a 
visit to an authentic medieval town. 
Next was Sevilla, where the teachers 

and students made friends with 
hundreds of birds at the local park. 
The group then moved to Grenada, 
which every one agreed had both 
incredible architecture and natural 
landscapes. Finally, they finished in 
Malaga, the birthplace of Picasso. 
The highlight of the trip was being in 
Spain for the World Cup soccer 
tournament. The students didn't 
attend any games, but they were 
amazed but the energy and team 
spirit in the country, and no one will 
forget the dancing in the streets 
when Spain won the cup!

Race morning was an early 
one for the first leg runners 
who caught a 5 AM shuttle 
bus to the start of the race. 
The other runners followed 
shortly thereafter, groggy 
but excited about the race 
ahead. Students waited 
anxiously at designated 
relay exchange areas for 
their teammates to arrive 
and watched in awe as the 
lead runners raced by en 
route to their 2:12 finish 
times. Runners made their 
way through their race legs, 
running between 9.3 and 
12.2 km, and we came back 
together as a team at the 
finish line.

37th overall out of over 900 relay teams! 

Swim, Bike, Run 

Mark Twain once said "Get a bicycle. You will not regret it, if you live". 
In the spirit of Twain's words, the Grade 10 students not only got on 
their bicycles for 8.5 km (all uphill!), but also ran 5.8 km and swam for 
750 meters, in a competitive annual event that takes them all the way 
from Okotoks back to the STS campus. The day always features 
personal bests, students supporting one another and many athletes 
learning to overcome adversity in order to reach a goal. 

The weather for this year's event was perfect and the event ran 
smoothly thanks to parent volunteers Carolyn Soules and Susan 
Mullie, who dedicated their time in order for the students to have a 
successful and safe race. In addition, many STS faculty members 
and older students take part and lend an hand. Great job, Grade 10s!

For a small school, 
our cross-country 
running program 
is exceptionally 
strong. Each year, 
our runners 
compete against 
schools that are 
much larger - and 
we win. Why? We 
give some credit 
to our amazing campus - not many schools in 
Canada have their very own cross-country path 
system! It's also the culture of fitness at STS - 
students are encouraged to be active every day. 
Combine athletic students with an incredible 
campus, and the results are clear - we rock!

JV Girls Balance Commitments, Place Second in their League 

We had 14 players on our team: 4 returning Grade 11s and 10 Grade 10s. 
Along with our play in the Foothills League, we played in tournaments at 
Western Canada, Foothills Composite, Hanna, and finally the zone tournament 
at Three Hills School. The Jr Varsity team was a very busy group of girls. Apart 
from playing volleyball, they were soccer players, musicians, competitive 
skiers, and actors. When the girls were able to come together, they played a 
great team game. Unfortunately, the team ran out of steam at the zone 
tournament and did not come home with a medal. Despite this, the JV 
girls had a season full of learning new skills and developing their ^0*^ 
competitive edge!

Girls go undefeated, take provincial banner, in incredible season 

"Individuals win games, teams win championships". This was their motto as the SV 
Women's Varsity volleyball team set a goal at the beginning of their season to bring 
home the Provincial Banner. With both dynamic and disciplined athletes, the girls not 
only won the 2A Provincial Meet in Three Hills, AB, but blazed through the season 
with a 60-1 record. Led by captains Annie Abbott '1 1 , Courtney Davis '1 1 and Jessie 
Niles '1 1 , the SV team was unstoppable, bringing home gold in every tournament 
they attended. More importantly, says coach Ms. Bartoshyk, was their exemplary 
sportsmanship and commitment to fair play. Demonstrating this, Jessie Niles was 
awarded a Sportsmanship Award at the provincial level. Despite injuries and 
setbacks, the girls remembered their motto and showed great teamwork in one of the 
most successful women's volleyball seasons in STS history.

Mr Race, co-coach of the JV Boys, noted that "it was a true pleasure for Mr. Julian and I to coach this team. They boys 
were both athletic and skilled, and competed with a lot of enthusiasm and energy. Because of this, they were able to 
make a strong run deep into the league playoffs, ultimately coming up short of the gold medal, but playing some great 
games along the way. The most impressive qualities that this team possessed were their chemistry and integrity. Mr. 
Julian and I often remarked at how well these players supported one another and we enjoyed the great spirit they 
possessed. This year, two boys share the title of Most Valuable Athlete. These two players showed tremendous 
leadership and skill in their preparation and play. They were willing to work hard and committed to improving their game."

Building Year Filled with Fun, Hard Work for Junior Varsity Girls ^a^l^^ vj 

The Junior Varsity Girls' Basketball season of 2010-201 1 is one that our team will never forget. Most of us had never 
played basketball outside of gym class. We lost games by 70 to 80 points (35 to 40 baskets) but our spirit was never 
broken. We played our best and cheered like crazy whenever one of us was fortunate enough to get a basket. During 
the season, we worked hard and our coach Ms. Egli worked hard with us. 

We participated in three tournaments throughout the season in Canmore, Fort Macleod and STS. In the tournament 
hosted at our school, we didn't want to be beaten in our backyard. We won 62 to 30 and it was a great achievement. 
Almost everyone on our team got a point. It was hard at the end of the game to contain our excitement in courtesy to the 
other team. We cheered, shook hands and celebrated together afterwards. That game has been the only game we 
have won this season and it was a victory we will always remember. For the first time this season, we left the gym as

Dedicated Senior Varsity Team Finishes Strong, Looks Forward to Next Season 

The Senior Boys Basketball team can be characterised by two key words: leadership and 
dedication. Our team had very strong senior leadership from Bryce Albery, Ian Whitestone, 
Muyiwa Abolarin, Max Van Sant, and Zaman Sachedina. These players set the tone for all of 
our practices and games, refusing to settle for anything but the best from themselves and their 
teammates. This core group led us to some excellent performances in league games and 
tournaments, but what I am most impressed with is how they led us to play more as a team. I 
appreciate how dedicated these individuals were to the philosophy of team basketball, and their 
commitment was infectious to their teammates. We fell just short of qualifying for the zone 
tournament, but the quality of basketball that we played in our final games made our year a 
success. I am excited about the talented returning players that we have for next year's team, 
which will be led by Dan Mullie, Will Whitehead, and Vincent Van der Poel. It should be another 
great year for Spartan basketball!

Senior Varsity Girls Have Another

Team sports are about celebrating individual success 
together as a team. 

"I always tell my team that the score doesn't matter; 
it is how they play the game that is important," says 
Jill Shipton, coach of the SV team. "I am extremely 
proud of this team, the way they conduct themselves 
on and off the court, and never give up. Preservation, 
persistence and determination, call it what you will, 
these are characteristics they will carry with them the 
rest of their lives. As the clock ticks down to the end 
of our season, the individual and team improvements 
are clearly visible. The girls put a smile on my face

A Visit to the Zoo 

is always fun. Grade Three 
had a blast learning about 
endangered animals and 
how tadpoles like Vikram 
are sensitive to man-made 
pollutants. The students 
also researched endangered 
animals such as the snow 
leopard and burrowing owl. 

9c *$C Food Festival 

As part of their 'This Land is Your Land' unit of inquiry, 
the Grade Threes hosted a Food Festival for their 
classmates and parents. Dishes from India, Tunisia, 
Peru and Ukraine delighted all. 

Arman's Indian pakoras were very popular & lasted 
only a few minutes. Aditya described the ingredients 
for his yummy couscous. And Will McNeill served 
alfajores, delicious Peruvian cookies. Mitchell loved 
the spread! Chelsea's favorite part of Food Festival?

Dinner was held in a spacious festival tent and was absolutely 
delicious. Dessert followed with fruit and individualized

devoured a magician delighted the sixes with his feats of 
wonder and amazement. 

Once everyone had eaten to their hearts content, the DJ took 
over and kept the dance floor HOPPING the whole night 
long. Even the parents got in on the action! 

Thank you to the parents who made the night such a

special time to cherish always.

irade 1 0 is the year where you can say that you finally made it to high school! Unfortunately, this also means smaller lockers, and 

Ieing back at the bottom of the totem pole. Grade 1 0 is the year where you get BLT on Friday afternoons and more option in the 
ourses that you take. Grade 1 Os can take part in Outdoor Education, learn about Sports Medicine, or go on an international exchange 
s part of the Round Square program. After three years with the same group of people, there are a bunch of new faces in the crowd, 
"llso, we have classes with lots of different people - not just the same homeroom every day, all day! The best part about being in 
" igh school might be the trips that we get to take - from Round Square service trips and conference, to trips for history, languages , 
or Model United Nations, we have the opportunity to develop our skills in so many new ways.

Grade 1 1 is one step away from being done. It's the year when marks finally start to 'count' in terms of getting into the university of 
pur choice. Grade 1 1 is also the year that our IB courses begin and we are excited about the challenge, but amazed at the amount 
pf work that it requires. We have more freedom, but also more responsibilities. We are taking on leads in the musicals, playing for 
he senior varsity sports teams and considering running for prefect next fall. We can drive to school, but it also means that we have 
o drive our younger siblings! We get to spend some time this year volunteering in our communities with the Agencies program. 
Grade 1 1 has all the fun, but less of the stress that Grade 1 2 brings. Next year, we'll be the graduates!

than history - dreams are more power- 
ful than facts - hope always triumphs 
over experience - laughter is the cure 
for grief - love is stronger than death" 

Man is the supreme Talisman. Lack of a proper education hath, however, deprived I 
him of that which he doth inherently possess. Through a word proceeding out of 
the mouth of God he was called into being; by one word more he was guided to 
recognize the Source of his education; by yet another word his station and des- 
tiny were safeguarded. The Great Being saith: Regard man as a mine rich in gems 
of inestimable value. Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and en- 
able mankind to benefit there from- Baha'u'llah

"Don't get me wrong I love 
what you've done with the 
place - 1 just wish we had a 

chance to help build it. 
Instead of just moving into 
this home of disrepair and 
Expect it to work, prosper, 
and then share. Constantly 
relying on consuming to 
feel content, but only 
because we lost touch with 
this home that we've spent. 
Trillions of dollars paying 
for our wants and not out 

needs, and now we're 
growing tired of planting 
bleary-eyed seeds."

of Manitoba's polar bears will
