The Middle School at STS is a community of individuals that supports and cares for each other while we 
pursue our passions and try new things. Events such as Dan Arato Day, Speech Day, and Band and Choral 
concerts are great examples of our community coming together to accomplish great things. I am continually 
inspired by the kindness and compassion that our students show for each other. 

STS' mission of inspiring excellence in 'Scholarship, Leadership, and Character' is evident on a daily basis 
in the Middle School. I impressed by our students' commitment to their learning and academic success. 
Outside of the classroom students also impress with their personal initiative and leadership in things such 
as being Grade 9 leaders on OE trips, initiating service activities such as the popcorn sale, the Cookie Club 
bake sales, and the many activities promoted by students involved in the Middle School Round Sguare. It 
is also a pleasure to see students pursuing their athletic interests and seeking out experiences whether 
they are on the courts in the gym, on the athletic fields, or on the running trails. 

I would like to thank our teachers for their commitment to ensuring the success of our students and I would 
like to thank the Middle School students for their enthusiasm and energy which fuels my spirit and makes 
me enjoy being their principal. Nil Nisi Optimum. 




Upon my return, I was immediately reminded of the warm, engaging and dynamic learning environment 
that defines STS. It has been an honour and a privilege to once again be part of such a special place. 

One of my favourite things to do is to find that quiet and relaxing moment to go through the yearbook page 
by page, enjoying the wonderful memories that come flooding back. Looking through the yearbook gives 
us time to reflect, celebrate and be thankful for the many enriched learning opportunities we have at STS. 

There is great excitement for the children when they hear the yearbooks have arrived! They flip through 
quickly looking for their classmates and of course, themselves and seek out their teachers and friends to 
autograph their special book. It reminds all of us how the students value the relationships they have 
developed with their friends and teachers. This yearbook is a cause of celebration as it showcases all of 
the creativity, energy and enthusiasm that helps shape the culture at STS. 

All of the special programs pictured in these pages were made possible by the support of teachers and 
parent volunteers. Your participation in our school community is most appreciated! Thank you to the 
teachers and parents who have contributed to the yearbook and to Ms. Johnson for coordinating its 
production. Please enjoy the memories of friends, teachers, parents and special guests while engaged in 
learning at STS!

If 



Reading through these pages, it is impossible not to appreciate the remarkable accomplishments 
of our students in both their curricular and co-curricular pursuits. STS students demonstrate to 
me the true meaning of well-roundedness: they are scholars, dedicated athletes, talented artists 
and conscientious citizens of their local and global communities. I am confident that when you 
look through the 2012 edition of Paidia you will be proud of the contributions that you made and 
the success that you strived to achieve. I hope that this book is especially meaningful for our 84 
graduates. I know that it will provide you with the opportunity to reflect on the time you spent at 
STS and revisit your favorite memories through its pages. Know that your involvement in our 
school as leaders and role models had a significant impact on the students who look up to you. 

I would like to thank the Senior High faculty, who go above and beyond to create a rich and 
meaningful experience for our students. Thank you to the parents, who support their children in 
countless ways and provide them with the foundation to be successful as they grow into young 
adults. Finally, thank you especially to the students, for the energy and passion that you bring to 
school with you each day. Congratulations on a very successful year! 





Atessage from Hie 4-fead of^SeJioof 



We began this year with our Homecoming and 40th 
Anniversary celebration. It was a great party for the entire 
school community surrounded by a variety of smaller alumni 
gatherings for Strathcona-Tweedsmuir and our founding 
schools: Strathcona School for Boys, Tweedsmuir: An 
Academic School for Girls and St. Hilda's. There were many 
fond memories and stories exchanged during those gatherings 
and a palpable sense of pride in the rich history and traditions 
of our school. We were also blessed by the presence of our 
founding headmaster, Mr. Sandy Heard, who unfortunately 

passed away not long after his visit. Many alumni were grateful for the opportunity 
to see and speak with Mr. Heard who was so instrumental in the successful 
amalgamation of the two schools at our current site. 

Following on this exciting start to the year, we continued with an extraordinary year 
of student accomplishments as you all participated so enthusiastically in the co- 
curricular program. Beauty and the Beast was an incredible success drawing the 
largest crowds of any musical to date. We had zone and provincial champions in 
several sports and national champions in public speaking. Our bands and choirs 
were rewarded with multiple gold awards and our young scientists received top 
recognition at the Science Olympics. Most of you were involved in a variety of outdoor 
pursuits and many participated in HOP and Round Square service projects such as 
the Fair Trade project and the service trip to Costa Rica. Language trips and student 
exchanges broadened your global perspectives and there were many opportunities 
to explore global issues through things like Model UN. Taken together with your 
academic studies, you have been given countless opportunities to learn and to grow 
and you have embraced these with great passion and energy. 

This edition of Paidia, your school yearbook, will serve as a perpetual repository of 
the many memories that you have created together this year. I must thank Ms. 
Johnson and the very talented yearbook team for producing such an attractive 
volume and all of you for your contributions to such a memorable and successful 
school year.

"My favorite memory of being a Prefect 
will be standing shoulder to shoulder 
with my fellow prefects, shaking, 
nervously noting that an elementary 
student all of sudden isn't so cute 
holding a pie with the intention 
directing itatyour face. justifiably so, it 

TURNS OUT. The TERRIFYING EXPERIENCE 

brought us as prefects together as we 
comforted each other, while repeatedly 
having whipped cream rubbed in our 
faces. Times to remember. 

The biggest piece of advice I can give for 
next year is, always work hard, but never 
forget your friends. they are going to 
be the ones that get you through the 
year, not your work. and cross bridges 
when you get to them, don't worry 
about them beforehand. and sleep. 
Never ever forget to sleep. "

Faculty, staff, students and parents geared 
up in their best superhero attire for the annual 

Terry Fox Run on September 16, 2011. The 

superhero theme made the event that more 
fun. The beautiful weather was welcomed and a 
great time was had by all. Although the run itself 
is a fun way for the school community to get 
together, the money raised from students and 
parents is central to the goal of the event. This 
year the students had the opportunity to hear 
Fred Fox, Terry's brother, speak about Terry's 
dream and the importance of one's determination. 

This year surpassed the half million 

dollar mark in total donations since 1984 - a 
feat our community should be very proud of! 
- Grace Walker '12 



Following the Terry Fox Run, more than 1,000 students, 
parents, alumni and current and former faculty and staff celebrated 
40 years on our country campus at Homecoming 

201 1 . Those in attendance enjoyed an array of activities including 
our annual Terry Fox Run, rugby, field hockey, basketball, school 
tours, an art show, presentations and entertainment by country 
music sensation George Canyon. They were also entertained by the 
premiere of "The Mighty Spartans," performed by our talented 
Senior School Band and composed by Dave Pierce '90. Founding 
Head of School W.A. "Sandy" Heard '46 made the journey back to 
STS and his presence reminded us of how far we have come on this 
country campus that he envisioned and created with passion, 
dedication and determination. The accomplishment of this event 

epitomizes the strength of our School due to our strong ties 
with alumni, former faculty and our parent 
community.

LEARNING THE ROPES 

Grade 7 Orientation Camp 





The Class of 7B stops to take a break gi 
overlooking Barrier Lake 



Grade 7 students spent three days at Camp Chief 
Hector taking part in archery, geocaching, 
photography, science observations, challenge courses, 
canoeing and hiking during the Grade 7 Orientation 
Camp earlier this fall. In the evening, they enjoyed the 
animal game and created skits. Along with Grade 9 
student leaders and staff, the students embarked on a 
seven-kilometer hike to the Barrier Lake overlook. This 
three-hour hike is a real challenge and it's impressive 
to see the students accomplish this great task.

Three busloads of Grade 10 students, Prefects and teachers headed to Camp 
Chief Hector in September for two days of outdoor adventures. Upon arriving 
at camp, the Grade 10 students played games and split into groups to make 
flags featuring an array of interesting symbols, quotes and pictures. 

Students were then guided to four stations organized by the Prefects. The 
challenge course (one obstacle which included scaling an eight-foot wall) 
took teamwork and leadership to complete successfully. The picture 
scavenger hunt required teams to look for certain items. Bonus points were 
awarded to those who had moss mustaches in every picture. The third station 
had students learning to trust each other as they overcame obstacles. The 
Round Square station required students to come up with service ideas to 
contribute to the community. Ideas included bake sales, campus clean-ups 
and a toy drive.

Pushing for Vratfyidiate' 



Forty-one Grades 7 to 9 cross-country runners returned home from 
the South Central Zone Competition in Canmore filled with pride. STS 
consistently finished in the top two-thirds of the pack and returned 
home with one gold, two silver and one bronze medal. Competitors 
ran two kilometres of hilly terrain, with the exception of the juvenile 
boys who ran three. The students performed phenomenally in such a 
rigorous sport, and to see them support each other was inspirational. 





"Each individual is 
needed in order to 
win the banners, so 

it is extremely 
rewarding to finish 
your run knowing 
the value of your 
contribution to the 
team." 



"My favorite part of 
being on the cross 
country team is 

meeting new people 
when traveling as 
well as having in 

depth conversations 
with Mr. Lederer!" 



"I attended the 
Foothills Division 
Meet at STS and 
Zones in Canmore.I 

like that it is an 
individual sport but I 
can still be part of a 
really awesome team." 



STS owned the podium at the divisional cross country meet, winning the 
Junior High School Banner and the 2A Provincial Championship Banner. 
Forty-four Senior School students competed in the divisional meet at STS 
and zone meet in Canmore a week later with great success. Sixteen of 
the 18 students who qualified for provincials attended and were up 
against archrival Sundre, which had 10 qualified runners who had 
ranked higher than the majority of our students. STS made up the gap 
with outstanding efforts on race day and won the provincial banner by 
35 points. Since each of our runners earned more than 35 points 
individually, we needed everyone's effort to gain victory. It was a true 
team effort! In addition to our efforts in Alberta, twenty-four runners 
flew to Vancouver for the JC Seawall Race on Sunday to run around the 
Stanley Park seawall and cap off our tremendous running season. 
Congratulations to all of our outstanding athletes!

In October, Grade 9 students ventured into Kananaskis Country to experience the great outdoors. Carrying 

their packs over tough terrain and in snowy conditions for three days wasn't always easy! Below, four wise 

survivors of the backpacking trip share their advice for future Grade 9 students: 




Juliana Smith 



"Bring a lot of warm clothes. If 
you don't, you'll be cold all the 
time. Wear everything you 
brought at night - you can 
never have too many layers" 




KltYXN M< Ll l.L t\ 



"Get a warm sleeping bag - it 
gets really cold at night time 
and you'll be glad that you had 
it" 




Stephen Powell 



"Be prepared for anything. And 
bring extra socks. Your feet get 
cold. I actually slept in my 
down parka, which was a good 
idea" 




Matthew Samhjl 

"Don't bring broccoli. We froze 
it before the trip, and then we 
discovered that frozen broccoli 
doesn't taste good. At all." 




'Best part of 
the school 
year!" 



"So fun, amazing 
climbing a 
mountain" 



"A very enjoyable 
outdoor learning 
experience" 



"A good way 
to meet 
others" 



"I really 
enjoyed grade 
six camp" 





Favourite Moment: "At night, 
looking at a blazing fire under 
the beautiful stars." 



Ashyana Sunderji and 
Jacob Dowdall 



"My funniest memory was 
when Braeden and Max 
had a pony tail on the front 
of their head." 

Braeden Ortt and 
Max McKay 

Favourite Memory: "The 
skits, they were really well 
done. When we were 
presenting our skit, I got 
smacked in the face with a 
purse. 

Luka Wrenshall, Tiffany 
Toward, Henry McArdle, 
and Shayne Tripp 



Funniest Memory: 
"Mr. Wick singing "Sexy 
and I know it!"

Grade 6's spent three days in Kananaskis leamWf in tb^M^dc 

The students were ecstatic to embrace the beauty of Tfre zutWScri 

and further develop their hiking techniques on new terrain. Spending, 
time with friends 'and learning about trees and forests while 
-delivering songs and skits made the trip more than just about hiking.- 1 




The last hike around Ribbon Creek Trail 
was also noteworthy with it's rolling path 
and close proximity to the winding creek, 
"t was a great time to be with friends and 
enjoy the outdoors". 
24 



The highlight for most was the second day hike 
on Centennial Trail on Mount Allen. With steep 
inclines and strong winds, the students needed 
to be diligent with pacing and technique. The 
reward of a stunning vista close to the summit 
was breathtaking. 



My favorite camp memory is definitely 
being at the top of Mount Allen with all 
of my friends and just sitting there in this 
really strong wind, hoping we wouldn't 
fall off, and all of us gasping at how 
beautiful the view was. 



"Amazing 
what nature 
can teach" 



"Educational, 
beautiful, and 
inspiring"

McGill University 

"The McGill Model UN experience was one of my 
favorite school trips to date. It was so enjoyable because 
of all the amazing experiences that were offered on this 
trip. We were able to visit really interesting places in 
Montreal like the Modern Art Museum and the Biodome. 
We also were able to go see a McGill University 
basketball game as well as explore the campus of the 
McGill. The trip was also fantastic because we were able 
to explore, to an extent, on our own. That gave us a taste 
of how it would be to travel on our own and made the trip 
much more enjoyable! Of course, the highlight of any 
MUN trip is the work that you do as a delegate. The 
McGill Conference was fantastic, I was able to represent 
the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the summit for 
HIV/AIDS. It was a enjoyable process and I made some 
great friends in the along the way."

Georgetown, DC 



"Georgetown Model UN was my 4th MUN since grade 
ten. and I have to say that the experience has been nothin 
short of awesome. This MUN proved to be my most 
challenging yet. with a difficult topic, big committee and 
the fact that it was also a double delegation (working will 
a partner). My partner, Ashleigh Corbiell. represented 
Carl Bauman in the Committee of the Weimar Republic. 
This proved challenging considering the massive size of 
the committee and the singular fact that the issues 
surround this time period are so complex. Aside from the 
time in committee we visited several landmarks, includin 
the Spy Museum and the Pentagon as well getting a 
speech from the Pakistani embassy which was a very 
interesting experience. In the end Ashleigh and I won 
outstanding delegate for our roll as Carl Bauman. The tri 
was a very rewarding experience and I encourage 
everyone to try and do a MUN conference while at STS.'

a lot of fun too."

friends and to make lasting 
memories."

different schools around North 
America."

A cast, crew and pit band of more than 84 people brought Beauty and the Beast, a Disney classic to 
life on November 23rd to November 27th, in the C.A. Smith Arts Centre. After a handsome yet conceited 
prince mistreats a beggar woman, the woman turns out to be a beautiful enchantress and transforms 
the prince into a beast and his staff into household objects and furniture. The prince is told that in 
order to break the spell, he needs to learn to love a person for who they are, and get her to love him 
before the last magical rose petal falls. Meanwhile, in a nearby village, a beautiful, smart girl named 
Belle is scorned by the townspeople for being a bookworm who dreams of adventure in a great wide 
somewhere. When Belle's father gets lost in the woods, he is captured by the Beast in his castle. Belle 
eventually finds the castle and the Beast agrees to release her father if she agrees to stay with him 
forever. Initially repulsed, Belle begins to appreciate the beast's tender nature and falls in love with 
him. However, the self-centered and overly-masculine man from Belle's village, Gaston, gathers a mob 
to 'save' Belle from the beast. Gaston ends up stabbing the beast. Luckily, Belle rushes to the beast 
and expresses her love for him and he comes back to life again as a handsome prince.

This year marked year 27 of Marti McKay Week - STS's annual 
celebration of the literary arts. Throughout the week, STS hosted 
literary and other creative artists as part of an artists-in-residence 
program. Each student had the opportunity to speak with and learn 
from these artists, creating a student-centered forum in which to 
celebrate and learn about the literary arts. 



II 



Marti McKay, a gifted writer and poet, came to STS in 1979 as a 
Grade 1 0 student, but her life was tragically cut short in 1 981 . Marti's 
family and friends established a fund in her memory 
to keep the passion for literary arts alive at STS. This 
fund allows our students to interact with different 
artists on a group and individual basis. Marti's father, 
Mr. Bill McKay, expressed the hope that Marti McKay 
Week might inspire students to express themselves 
through poetry, song or story writing. He suggested 
that writing provides us with an avenue to express our 
thoughts and feelings, and that Marti McKay Week 
aims to foster in students a passion for the literary and 
creative arts. The School first welcomed Sue Farrell 
Holler, a children's book writer, freelance journalist and 
columnist for Sun Media newspapers and the Daily 
Herald-Tribune. Students were fascinated by her book Lacy and

other publications include To The Pool with Mama and

our students with stories about her outdoor adventure 
on mountains, in caves and on rivers, complete with 
photographs. STS students, who participate in many 
outdoor adventures through the OE program, were 
inspired by the journeys she described. Wendy Berner 
created vivid pictures in the students' minds with her folk 
tales from different regions of the world. This 
professional storyteller caters to people of all ages, 
celebrating the art and oral tradition of storytelling. She 
encouraged students to retell her stories from the 
pictures they created in their minds. Thank you to the 
McKay family for their generous support of this special week.

How we contributed - Fall 201 1 

An important part of the privilege of attending 
STS is the responsibility to give back to our 

local and global community. The Round 
Square program often provides us with the 
opportunity to get involved in a meaningful 
way and have a direct impact on the lives of 

others. Here are some of the many ways STS 
students reached out to make a difference. 







This year, the prefects led a 
campaign to collect jackets in good condition from the STS community. 
These jackets are given to Calgary's jacket racket program, which 
provides winter wear to children and families in need. 



to the roof with toys, 
games, stuffed animals, holiday decorations and household items. All 
donations are taken by to Patrick Airlie School in Calgary, to be used 
for their white elephant sale. This sale allows students to purchase 
holiday gifts for their families at reasonable prices. 



{FRESH WATER IN THAI LAN! 

In December201 1 , STS student Ainsley MacDougall and 
her mom traveled to Chang Mai, Thailand, to take part in 
a Round Square pilot project. While in Thailand, Ainsley 
worked with students from around the globe to build two 
new water tanks for a village in need. 

"It was the best experience of my life" Ainsley remarks. 
"Living in a village no one knows about, becoming friends 
with the villagers and providing them with this service was 
an indescribable experience unlike any other. We learned 
so much and experienced things we never imagined we 
would. This trip was life changing in every aspect, and 
will probably be one of the best trips I will ever participate 
in"

happy to see us, and so appreciative when we 
make dinner for them."

a relationship with a younger generation. Seeing 
the kids gives them a sense of hope for the future, 
knowing that our world is in good hands."

GRADE SEVEN VOLLEYBALL 





The Grade 7 Boys 
Volleyball Team had a 
very successful season 
winning going 
undefeated in the 
regular season and then 
winning the league 
championships at the 
final tournament by 
defeating OJ in their 
gym. Coach Julian was 
thrilled by the 
commitment of the 
players to develop their 
skills and by the sheer 
joy for the game that 
the boys demonstrated 
while they played. The 
highlight of the season 
was most certainly 
winning the 
championship and then 
being presented with 
medals at a Middle 
School Assembly. 




We had a 
fantastically fun 
season this year! Our 

16 players were 
extremely dedicated 
to the sport and the 
team, with massive 
skill improvements 

throughout the 
season. In difficult 
playing situations, 
they handled 
themselves with grace 
and sportsmanship. 
In all situations, they 
were enthusiastic and 
celebrated every play 
as a team. We were 
the only grade 7 team 

in the league who 
played with position- 
awareness and 
regular attempts at 3- 
hit ball - well done 
ladies!!! 




GRADE EIGHT VOLLEYBALL 



For the second time in a 
row, the grade 8 boys 

volleyball team won the 

league championships. 
Playing against their 
rivals from Red Deer Lake 

School, the boys won in 
two games, finishing up a 

great season that was 
filled with good memories, 

great friendships and 
fantastic volleyball. 

Throughout the season, 
the entire team improved 

in hitting, blocking and 
teamwork. Bloody noses 
became common place in 

practice when the boys 
put themselves on the line 
to try and dig up the big 
hits. With a willingness 
to improve and a drive to 
succeed, the boys had one 

of the best seasons in 
recent years. 




Our volleyball team 
consisted of a special 
group of 12 talented 
young ladies who 

demonstrated excellent 
teamwork and had a 
fantastic season! The 

girls were quick to pick 
up on a new offensive 

system that eused all of 
our strengths in 
multiple ways. Our 

highlights this year was 
winning the Rally 

Pointe tournament and 

finishing undefeated in 
league! With strong 

serving, and exceptional 
net play, our team was a 
force to be reckoned 
with. We had a lot of 
fun and the team has 
great memories from 
both on and off the 
court. Thanks for an 

amazing season ladies!

This year's volleyball 
season was intense and 
dynamic, and provided us 

with many good 
opportunities to hone our 

skills and to play 
competitive volleyball. We 

started the season with 
only six players (and almost 
as many fans!) but quickly 

grew to a team of eleven 
dedicated players. Our four 
weekend tournaments were 
action packed and we took 
1st place at the Strathmore 
Invitational and 2nd place 
at the Rundle Invitational. 
We ended the season 2nd in 

our league and 3rd at 
Zones. I am very pleased to 

say that the boys made 
good progress on the court 
and remained cohesive as a 
team- even under pressure. 
Off the court, they 
impressed me with their 
sense of humour and good 
spirits, both of which made 
for an extremely fun 
season. 




The 2011 season was 
the first year where our 
team consisted entirely 

of grade 9s. With a 
smaller roster and busy 
schedule, many 
newcomers found 
themselves fulfilling 
new roles and stepping 
up into the spotlight. 
The girls were 
impressive in their 
ability to outplay more 
physically talented 
squads. Highlights 

include a finals 
appearance at the 
Rallypointe 
tournament, a return to 
South Central Zones 
and a 3rd consecutive 
league championship. 
Best wishes to all the 
2011 team as they close 

out their Jr. High 
careers and go on to the 
next level. 





JUNIOR VARSITY VOLLEYBALL 



This year's Junior 
Varsity boys team had 
an epic season. They 

competed well in 
tournaments coming 
close many times. The 
boys saved their best for 
last hosting and 
winning the foothills 
league banner. We had 

one last date with 
destiny at the home of 

our arch rivals the 
Acme Redmen. In the 
final game our setter 
(Daniel Livergant) with 
broken glasses taped 
back together played 
the game of his life and 
the rest of the team was 
there with him. As a 
coach you dream of 
these moments. 
Congratulations Zone 
Champions. 




The JV Girls Volleyball 
team had an enjoyable, 
fun, and successful 
season this year! We 
emerged from the league 
season with a bronze 
medal after playing 
against Foothills 
Composite High School, 
one of our toughest 
rivals. With the 
continued effort of all 
team members, the team 
worked hard in 
preparation for Zones. 
Meeting early Saturday 

morning, we were 
undefeated until the gold 
medal game. Fighting 
hard in the finals, we 
fought until the third 
game against Duchess. 
For the final game of the 
season, we won a silver 
medal. This was a great 
end to a successful 
season!

several tournaments ranging 
from large '4A' tournaments likl 
the FOG Invitational at the I 
University of Alberta and the I 

Western Canada Redman 
Invitational to the smaller, but J 
very competitive West Island I

we played in the Foothills

were a strong contender. This 1 
season was always interesting! 
from a coaches standpoint. ] 
Practice times were both fun and 
challenging for players. In the 
end, we played some exciting I 
volleyball in the league semi- I 
finals and finals to finish with a 
Bronze. Games and tournaments 
were at times exciting and 
frustrating, but always 
entertaining.

towards their season goals of I 
becoming the Western Canadian 
Champions, winning league, 
defending our title as zone 
champions, and making another rujf;

chemistry on the team was 
noteworthy with each player addinn

he STS golf team had a very successful season this

and the boys team took the silver. Rebecca Van Helden 
12' won first place at zones, Virginia Cooke 12' won second, 
and Alyssa Borden 12' rounded out the medals in third. 
Winning zones added another zone banner to our display 
in the gym, but the season wasn't finished quite yet. Two 
weeks later, we traveled up to Edmonton to compete in

Everyone's got something to do during BLT 



As the clock ticks closer to 1:15pm every Friday afternoon, high school 
students in biology, calculus and history pack their bags, awaiting freedom 
from structured classes and the arrival of "Borderless Learning Time". For 
many students BLT is a time for catching up on homework, perfecting 
your most recent painting, attending in-depth tutorials, or even just 
meeting a teacher in the hallway and having a conversation about 
something interesting you read about last week. For other students, it's 
a time to catch up on sleep, get some exercize at the gym, or grab a hot 
chocolate with friends after a long week of classes. Whether you're 
studying or socializing, doing homework or heading home, everyone 
appreciates the time to get things organized before the weekend begins. 
Did you notice that more and more teachers are sporting bow ties on 
Fridays? Thanks to Mr Shaw, BLT bowties have become the fashion among 
the staff. The only rule? They can't be clip on!

At STS we are fortunte to receive three weeks of holidays in 
winter to allow us explore the world or just hang out at 
home. Here are what some STS students were up to this 




Gett ing some skiiis on

It starts over Winter Break. Grade 7 students start 
checking the weather reports, hoping to see sunshine 

and warmer temperatures in the forecast for their 
upcoming ski week, instead of the cold, harsh weather 

that January can be known for. This year, all three 
Grade 7 classes lucked out with beautiful days and 
plenty of snow! Ski week is a great time to make new 

friendships, learn a new sport and practice living 
without electricity or running water - in the middle of 

winter! There are challenges to be faced - 58% of 
Grade 7 students said that the toughest part of the 
week was the uphill ski to Elizabeth Parker Hut. 

However, once there, many say that their favorite 
memory took place in the hut while playing charades, 
telling ghost stories or sleeping on the giant bunk bed! 






"Everyone was telling ghost stories at E. P. 
Hut. Hanna snuck outside with a red 
flashlight and shone it on her face. 
Everyone screamed and Vicki and Lochlyn 
started to cry 1 " 

- Chanel Fu '17 



"On the trail, going down from the 
E.P.Hut, we saw two bearded men 
pushing babies in homemade strollers 
with skis on the bottom!" 

- Evan Vadnai '17 



"The funniest thing that happened during 
ski week was when Gayathri fell off of 
the top bunk in the Elizabeth Parker Hut. 
It was an exhausting ski in, and she 
didn't have the energy to hold on to the 
ladder!" 

-Imaan Sunderji "17 



le funniest thing that happened was 
when Cat woke me up in the middle of 
the night just because she was too 
-scared to walk to the outhouse by 
herself!" 

-Aleisha Dera "17 



"Azeeza was skiing down a hill and her 
ski fell off, and flew all the way down into 
a ravine. Luckily, someone skiing by 
rescued her ski for her!" 

- Troy Hands '17 



As a sport, cross-country skiing is one of the most 
difficult endurance activities, making use of every 
major muscle group. It is estimated that there are 
more than 10,000 recreational nordic skiers in 

Calgary alone!

Celebration 

fyun 



In our Celebrations unit, we learned that 
celebrations can be both the same and different in 
many ways. Take Christmas and St. Nicholas Day, 
for example. What is the same about these 
celebrations is that men deliver presents, but this 
is done in different ways. During our unit, parents 
come to our classrooms to do presentations. Some 
parents and Grade 2 students dressed up in special 
clothing and brought special food like Indian food, 
latkes and butterhorns. For Guy Fawkes Day, we 
had a big stuffed Guy Fawkes. We learned about 
the story of Martisor where winter wouldn't go away 
and spring was getting fed up. Martisor celebrates 
one season leaving so another can come. We also 
learned the reason that a menorah has nine 
candles; eight are for the days of Hanukkah and 
the ninth is the helper. We learned about many 
other celebrations such as Navroz, Diwali, Robbie 
Burns Day and Easter Monday. It was a lot of fun 
and we learned so much from our parents and 
friends. Thank you to everyone who came to teach 
us about their celebration!

Written by Rosalind Jackson-Roe 

On February 26th, 2012 45 grade 8 French students boarded a 
plane to Quebec, planning to enrich their understanding of the 
French culture and language by travelling to different parts of both 
old and new Quebec in order to participate in activities guaranteed 
to deepen their knowledge. All of the activities, sights, and food 
certainly fulfilled the grade 8 French students' thirst for adventure; 
at least for a little while. 

Bowling. Aquariums. Hockey. As Albertans, all of these things seem 
to be a part of our everyday lifestyle. The difference is, we 
experience them in English. After a full day of touring museums 
and Quebec, the grade 8s welcomed a chance to relax and go 
bowling with friends. The chance to see underwater creatures was 
also quite welcome to the French students. As well as learning 
about the animals' habitats, eating tendencies, and how they lived, 
there was also the experience of being able to interact with some of 
the smaller creatures.The biggest sport in Canada is hockey. The 
grade 8s had the exciting opportunity to watch a Quebec Major 
League Hockey game; Ramparts vs. Wildcats. It was a very exciting 
game. As the grade 8s walked into the Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre 
Church, their breath caught. With the fine architecture and 
sprawling arch ceilings, the church is one of the finest in Quebec. 
"The combination of the colors, grandeur, and sculpturing made for 
a fantastic spectacle." Declared Halle Shopperly (16 ). The copper 
museum was a very exciting experience as well. The students had 
the honor of viewing 94 copper scenes that depicted the life of 
Jesus. Following this, the students got to make their own copper 
plates. 

As the students entered the cabin, hungry after a snowshoeing 
adventure, the delicious smell of maple syrup entered their nostrils. 
After anticipating the sugar shack visit the entire trip, that moment 
had finally come. After being given some time to shop for 
mementos for their families, the students gathered outside for a 
special treat. The employees at the sugar shack poured hot maple 
syrup on fresh snow and gave the students a popsicle stick to roll 
up the syrup. "It was the yummiest thing in the world!" gushed 
Jacqueline Conroy (1 6') about the treat. Another favourite 
restaurant was the rotating restaurant on top of the Loews Hotel. It 
was a breakfast restaurant and the students enjoyed their meal of 
eggs, bacon, English muffins, and fruit immensely. The majority of 
the French students agreed that the food was the best part. 
Though the activities were extremely amusing, the sights were 
fantastic, and the food was delicious, these are not the things the 
grade 8s will take with them for the rest of their lives. They will take 
the skills that they learned and the friendships that they grew.

L Trip lo Cuba 

Ik (ten by Matthew Stanilotf 

C : ebruary 26th our grade 8 Spanish class went to Havana, Cuba. We took a direct flight 
|i i Calgary to Varedero. and then from there we took an hour and a half bus ride to the 
C idental Miramar Hotel in Havana. The first day was fun but quite windy. We had lunch at 
B iazz cafe, and then we bargained for souvenirs at the market and saw an old famous 
jl 'ess in Havana. The second day was exciting and interesting as we saw a dolphin show 
had lunch at the Gran Azul Aquarium. Then we took a cultural trip to old Havana and 
the famous Cathedral. The next day we woke up the beautiful hot sun with breakfast and 
nish class before visiting the magnificent and quiet cemetery. Then we took a trip to 
'An a little bit about Cuba's national hero, Jose Marti. Then we were educated about Cuba's 
t s and revolutions before returning back to the hotel to go swimming and eat dinner. On 
D fifth day we had a blast meeting other kids our age at 'Olof Palme,' a secondary school 
I a Lisa. Then we improved our dancing skills at the Tropicana dancing club. After 
i cing, we visited one of the most famous houses in Cuba, known as Fuster's house, 
i ost completely made of ceramic mosaics. The nest day was cool and interesting as we 
ijched people hand roll cigars in a factory, before looking at Jose Marti's home. The last 
was long and beautiful as we took a break from the city walking through valleys, fields, 
I caves away from Havana in the agricultural district of Vihales. Than we were upset but 
1 py to see our family again back in Calgary. It was a really fun trip!

unit this winter. They had the opportunity to study the 
culture of four countries: India, Peru, Tunisia and the

Festival. The students shared food from their country 
of study. The favorite dish by far, were the scuffles, a 
sweet, cinnamon pastry from the Ukraine.

Dan Arato Day, celebrated every February during 
Spirit Week, is one of the things that makes our 
Middle School unique. Classes are canceled for the 
day and all Grade 7, 8 and 9 students join together 
in multi-grade groups to take part in hands-on 
challenges in every subject area. Winning groups 
are awarded with points and the houses compete 
with each other for bragging rights. The day is 
held in memory of Dan Arato, a student who was 
lost from the STS community. Dan was an 
energetic and outgoing student who loved active 
learning and spending time with his peers. 



Mrs. Arato, Dan's mother, who spent the morning 
at STS, remarked, "Every year I'm amazed how well 
the staff incorporate Dan's attributes and 
personality. The kids were learning having fun, 
interacting socially, challenging their minds and 
imagination, competing and entertaining each 
other. Please extend my heartfelt thanks and let 
them know how much we appreciate what they 
do to make Dan Arato Day a very special day for all 
of us." We are proud to remember Dan's spirit! 




Spottyhton Grade % 

A lot of the success of Dan 
Arato Day is a result of the 
Grade 9 students. Their job is 
to make sure that everyone 
feels included in their group, 

and to get the younger 
students excited to take part 
in the day's activities. As role 
models, our Grade 9s take 
their job seriously!

body was treated to a 
fantastic magic show by Mr. 
Malcolm Russell. It was the 
perfect start to getting 
students and faculty excited 
for the events to come. At 
lunch, free sundaes were 
prepared by the Prefects for 
anyone strong enough to 
brave the line.

and the Prefects sold cotton 
candy and doughnuts,

Show Spartan Pride! 




Thursday was the most 
memorable for the Prefects. Some 
would say that this was our true 
inauguration into Prefectship - Pie 
the Prefects! Elementary, Middle 
and Senior School students paid a 
toonie to shove a pie into the face 
of a Prefect of their choice. 
Students of all ages lined up with 
their pie and anxiously watched 
others pie the Prefects. It was 
definitely an unforgettable event 
for us, and judging by the looks of 
happiness on the faces of the 
throwers, it was fun for them, too. 




The elementary student-teacher 
hockey game took place with 
Elementary students watching 
and cheering for their favorite side. 
Spartacus made a surprise 
appearance to lead the cheering, 
and cheering there was! Following 
the game, with the assistance of 
Harrison Varley '12 as our witty 
host, the talents of our Senior 
School students was showcased 
during the STS Talent Show.

I wanted to be a teacher 
- just ask my younger 
brother and sister about 
their "lessons" at my 
chalkboard in our 
playroom. As for 
libraries - I spent many 
days at the Southwood 
Public Library on my 
school breaks and 
developed a voracious 
appetite for reading. 
When the opportunity 
arose to take on the role 
of teacher-librarian here 
atSTS, I knew that I had 
found my dream job. I 
love reading to the 
students, chatting about 
books, developing our 
library collection, and 
helping students to use 
the library to research 
the topics they are 
currently wondering 
about. Every day is a 
new adventure, and I 
feel so lucky to get to be 
a lifelong learner 
alongside the students."

Besides a picture-perfect day of fresh snow, blue sky and majestic mountains, 
the Grade 5 ski trip was an "amazing trip filled with laughter, smiles and the 
beauty of the outdoors". All students persevered through five hours of skiing. 
They behaved respectfully toward each other, their teachers and others on 
the trails and at the visitors centre. They also respected and admired the 
pristine environment. Through all the hours of skiing, not one complaint was 
heard.

Christy Worsley Contest 



Winner: Nikki Abbott '16 
"Bar Fifteen" 

I began playing the beginning notes of Allegretto from Sonata 
#10. A, B, C, B, A, A, G Sharp. It was the hardest song I had ever 
played. At a tempo of 96 beats per minute, the triplet notes zoomed 
by the millisecond. I had finally been given a solo in my school 
band, after playing the clarinet for five years. This allegretto was 
my favorite piece by Handel. 



Every single time I played this song, I was always much too late on the fifteenth bar. No 
matter how many times I practiced, whenever I got to that fifteenth bar, my fingers were 
slow and useless. I started over the song, playing slightly slower. The first ten bars were 
perfect; great articulation, great tone, and the right notes. Then there was the two bar 
break. I mastered the thirteenth bar, and perfected the fourteenth. Then the fifteenth bar 
came, and I played a half note instead of a one and a quarter note. I groaned in frustration 
and fingered through the notes once again. 

After over two and a half hours of practicing, my hands were purple with bruises, like 
they always were after practicing. My mother called me, "Paige, time to stop, it's supper 
right now, and your father is home." I carefully cleaned my clarinet and placed it on its 
stand. I wasn't hungry, nor was I ever. After breakfast, I felt full all day. However, my father 
was rarely home for dinner, because he worked late most days, so I had to go. I walked 
down the stairs and into the kitchen, where the table was set with barbecued chicken and 
an assortment of vegetables. My father, still dressed in his suit, sat at the head of the 
table...

Winner: Victoria Clark '13 
"A Bird Shriek in the Night" 

A story of a shape-shifter in ancient China. 

The air is cool with morning mist, dampening the valley. The 
terraced rice paddies lie stagnant, their mirror surface broken only by 
the occasional drop of dew tipping off a stalk. In towns throughout 
the dell, families lie huddled in their rammed-earth shacks, awaiting a 
new day and new work. Somewhere above, a bird shrieks. 

Sometimes I dream I am a bird. I am alone in a sleeping landscape; a forlorn wanderer 
drifting through the darkest hours of the night. Other times, I am a fox, or wild dog, or cow. The 
change is not sudden. When I close my eyes in sleep there is nothing, but then comes a blur of 
color which begins to sharpen. When I am wholly aware, I am not me - 1 am in a different body, 
an animal body. I ebb into it from somewhere within, my being seeping through the animal, 
feeling its life pumping through its veins, the warmth of existence, and its wild instinct. It is an 
extraordinary sensation, and my ind always tingles in brief confusion. I have hours to marvel in 
silence, or fly or run in this borrowed body. I have come to value this time. But everybody has to 
wake up. 

When I re-become myself I struggle with my thoughts, flickering between here and there. I 
am always breathing heavy, exhilarated by the interchangeability. It takes an instant to 
remember my life here, and to forget about the one out there. It is the time of Han Dynasty 
China, I am young and very poor. My visions must only be dreams, but they are so vivid and 
constant that I come to wonder... But what difference does it make? They have no significance 
to anyone here...

Middle/Senior Speech Team 

i 



^fe Speech Program was thriving in 2012 with more than 50 
students participating in local tournaments, as well as regional, 
provincial, national and even international competition. Each and 
every competitor did a remarkable job presenting in the category of 
their choice. There are six categories for students to choose from: 
mpromptu, prose, solo acting, duo acting, original oratory, and 
poetry. The speech students worked very hard and it all payed off as 
there was an STS student represented in every single category at 
the ADSA Provincial Speech Tournament 2012 at the Junior level. 
Additionally an STS student received a medal in every category. A 
special recognition goes to the students participating in the Solo 
Acting and Poetry categories, as the participants were 100% from 
STS. With this amazing turn-out there will be a student in every 
category going to nationals as well. The senior high speech team also 
had many STS student move on to provincials. Harrison Varley '12 
(Prose), Alisha Bhanji '14 (Solo Acting), Alykhan Bhanji '12 (Original 
Oratory), Elspeth Yates '14 (Prose), Ibrahim Itani '13 (Prose), and 
Govind Peringod '12 (Original Oratory) went to provincials to 
represent STS. Several students also traveled with Mr. Fink to the 
Canadian International Speaking Competition in Winnipeg, at St. 
John's Ravencourt School. Clearly, the speech program at STS is 
thriving and can only become more popular, as students realize the 
benefits of developing their skills in public speaking. Thanks to 
coaches Mr. Fink, Ms Conway and Ms Delanoy for all of their help 
this year.

U-13 Boys 

Our Amazing Season By: Glen 
McArthur '17 

Our grade seven basketball season 
started in the beginning of December. 
Twelve of us were chosen to represent 
Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School on the 
court. This year our team traveled to 
Winnipeg to compete in the CAIS U-K 
tournament! On January 27 we finallj 
had our first challenge; we held the 
Spartan Invitational tournament. We 
had to play three games back to back 
that night, and on top of that half of 
team had just gotten back from ski 
week! The next week we were off to 
Winnipeg for the CAIS U-13 basketba 
tournament. 
When you think of Winnipeg you 
probably think don't think of 
excitement, but if you were to talk to 
any of our players they would highly 
disagree. After many group photos an 
a quick trip through security we wen 

finally on our way. 
In Winnipeg, the families hosting us 
treated us like celebrities! The next 
morning we all met in the St Johns 
Ravencourt (SJR) gym and prepared 
for the opening ceremonies. Once the 

ceremonies were over we went to 
Lynden Woods's community center. 




The Grade 7 Girls 
Basketball team had a 
terrific season. All the girls 
improved dramatically over 
the course of the season anc 

this was evident in their 
3rd place finish at the Zonei 
Finals. Each player made 
significant contributions 
based on position and 
responsibility. The girls 
exuded an enthusiastic 
approach to each game and 
the teams pre-game cheer 
was enough to get anyone 
fired up to play their best. 
The girls were extremely 
coachable and 
demonstrated this by 
utilizing a new in-bounds 

play in the final game 
which allowed for the team 
to wind down the clock in 
nail-biter finish. Thanks fo 
a trulv memorable Season!

The Junior A Boys Basketball Tea 
was likely the most dedicated teaa 
have ever coached which had a 
significant impact on the team's 
development over the season Nc 
only did the boys develop skills, bt 
they also matured as individuals 
Tournament play in and around 
Calgary throughout the season 
allowed the team to bond with on 
another and improve their skills, 
our final game of the season, the i 
A Boys stepped onto the floor in tl 
final game against the higher 
ranked Holy Cross Collegiate froi 
Strathmore and continued to pla 
the way they had finished their 
previous match up. They scorche 
their opponents for a 30-point 
victory with all players contributi 
on both ends of the floor. Shootir 
with confidence and passing witl 
precision, the Spartans truly play 

the perfect game. The Jr. A 
Spartans would love to thank all 
their parents and family membej 
for their support this season and t 
School community for their 
assistance and backing during tt 
zone tournament. 




The Junior A Girls' basketball 
team had a successful season, 
despite facing many challenges. 
The season started rather rocky a 
we had to work extremely hard tc 
pull off a victory against OJHS it 
overtime to avoid a loss at the stai 
of the season. However, it was th« 
hard work displayed in that game 
that helped us win our next two 
league games. After Winter Breal 
the team came back a little out o 
sorts and we were handed our firs 
two losses of the season and ther. 
we went to a tournament in 
Lethbridge where we faced 
formidable opponents, injuries tc 
key players and a defensive systei 
that we had not encountered prio 
to the tournament. Finally, we 
were able to snap our losing strea 
and won the Consolation at the 
Canmore Tournament and going c 
to win our league title by defeatin 
OJHS in their gym. Despite 
finishing fourth in zones, it was 
incredible to watch the growth o) 
the girls as players, athletes and 
leaders. It will be exciting to see 
what these girls are capable of 
when they start playing senior hig 
basketball next vear. 





VARSITY 



he 2011-12 season for the Junior 
irsity Men's Basketball team was 
I very successful. The team 

competed in tournaments at 
undle College in December and at 

Bert Church High School in 
■ebruary. Tournament play was 
ghlighted by a win over our rivals 
om Rundle, and a silver medal in 
the first tournament. Wins over 

Strathmore High School and 
Oilfields High School qualified us 

for league playoffs. Our first 
playoff game was against 
Hignwood High School and STS 
as certainly an underdog entering 
le game; however, the team came 
ogether with its best effort of the 
year and earned the win with a 
ard fought two point upset! This 
d to the semi-finals where we lost 
o the eventual league champions 
from Foothills Composite High 
ichool. Despite the loss in league 
Dlayoffs, the team's play over the 
rear was strong enough to earn a 
cond place seed at Zones. Hosted 
.i Acme, our Spartans played well 
and won the first game with a 

strong performance against 
osemary. In the second game, the 
»am continued its strong play, but 
fell just short with a close loss to 
Cremona in the semi-finals. The 
ason saw the team demonstrate a 
eat deal of growth while having a 
great time working together. I'd 
ike to thank the players for their 
hard work and commitment, and 
ie parents for their support of the 
team. 



The Junior Varsity 
girls basketball team 
this year consisted of 
4 Grade 11 students 

and 7 Grade 10 
students. This was a 

year of growth for 
' this team, as some of 
j the students did not 
have much 
basketball 
experience prior to 
playing for this team. 
We spent the year 
focusing on player 
improvement and 
game strategy. This 

team had great 
spirit, enthusiasm 
and support for one 
another. It was a 
pleasure coaching 
them.

The Senior Boys Basketball 
had an excellent season thi» 
year. The team worked hard 
develop a disciplined and 
efficient style of play, which 1 
to an impressive league record J 
6-2. It was rewarding to see Urn 
development in all of the played 
on the team, who in addition M 
their commitment and tenacitd 
exhibited great character and 
sportsmanship. For the past 
three seasons our team ha9 
narrowly missed qualifying for 
the zone tournament, but thia 
years' Spartans made the field 
easily. After a good first round] 

win against Holy Cross 
Collegiate, we came up against 
Prairie Christian Academy to 
earn a spot in provincials. 
Though our opponents were 
heavily favored, we played 
extremely well and only lost tin 
game by a slim margin. In spite 
of the loss, we came out strong! 
the third place game and beat S 
Joe's team. Though winning thu 
bronze medal in our zone was s 
good result, the best thing abou 
the tournament was that we 
played our strongest basketball 
in the last game of the year. B 
was a privilege to coach such at 
impressive collection of studed} 
athletes. 



As a coach, this has been nr 
most memorable basketball 
season to date. The 14 girls tl 
joined together to form the 
senior varsity team were 
committed, positive, support 
and hard working. In terms 
heart and hustle this team wi 
the gold medal! The amount 
improvement each athlete 
achieved is astronomical anr 
their level of growth as a teat 
is unprecedented. Their positi 
attitude allowed them to 
progress and they worked ha 
regardless of the score. Our k 

game of the year was an 
exciting triple over time batti 
I would love to see where the 
athletes could have gone wit 
an extra month in the season 
will always cherish the athli 
on this 2012 SV basketball 
team. My only hope is that

STS Sends 3 Divisions to Science Olympics 




STS Elementary scientists tackle a 
constructrion problem as a team. 



On Saturday, February 25th, 
2012 STS participated in the 
APEGG A Science Olympics with 
over 24 different schools from 
Calgary and the surrounding 
areas. In total there were 10 
enthusiastic students that made 
up two separate teams. Students 
had to prepare ahead of time to 
make a vehicle to see how many 
times it could spin in a circle. 



Team Strathcona Tweedsmuir 2 
(consisting of Hank Ma, Pdiys 
Chapman, Will Clark, Matt 
Sandul, and Mackenzie Roth) 
won third in the Mystery Events 
category of creating a parachute 
that could float in the air the 
longest and land the straightest. 
Overall, everyone had fun and 
was able to learn from students 
from many other schools.

A school is just a building, not a community, unless there 
are people to populate it. Every day, hundreds of people 
drive, bus and carpool "out" to STS to learn, compete, sing, 
work, and spend their days together. Maybe it's the isolated 
location, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Maybe 
it's the fact that many of us are here from sun up to sun 
down. No matter what the reason, the outcome iis the 
same: we really are a family. These are the people that 
make up Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School.

In Memory of Ms Janice Bertram 

In February of 2012, we lost a precious member of our community, Ms. Janice Bertram. 
She came to us four years ago after a successful career teaching at Western Canada High 
School and Centennial High School. She quickly embraced the STS ethos and endeared 
herself to teachers, students and parents. Ms. Bertram taught senior mathematics courses 
and her students excelled under her tutelage, achieving excellent results on Provincial and 
IB examinations and being very well-prepared for post-secondary studies. 

Ms. Bertram's contributions extended well beyond the classroom. She also coordinated 
international exchanges between STS and other schools, and her efforts in this regard led 
to many memorable exchanges, providing students with a broader global perspective. She 
was also very involved with the Speech and Debate Program and helped with every 
tournament since her arrival at STS. She was instrumental in creating the draw, scheduling 
of spaces, registration of judges and other essential organizational tasks. Ms. Bertram ran 
the Canadian National Mathematics Contests for Grades 9-12 students which were written during lunch time 
throughout the year. 

Ms. Bertram loved the arts and had a flair for fashion and decorating. She enjoyed being with people, both at school 
and in social settings. Her love of the colour pink was well known and she may be the only person to own a pink 
graphing calculator. People felt very comfortable in her presence because she exuded warmth and caring which 
were always reflected through her radiant smile. She cared deeply about her students and colleagues. 

In the latter stages of her battle with cancer, we were all inspired by her relentless optimism, her unwavering courage 
and the brave and selfless manner in which she embraced each and every day. We have all been inspired by her 
journey and it is our fond memories of her kindness and dedication that help us to cope with our profound sense 

of loss.

your late nights and I know that the elementary students will look back on this book with fondness thanks to your dedication. Patricia 
DAgostini, who stepped up to assist Shelley with this task, and whose work has been so appreciated. 

Thank you to Mr Roth, for your beautiful and professional athletic photos. To the STS Elementary parent photographers who worked 
throughout the year photographing the students. To Jennifer Chipperfield, who graciously let us use her professional photographs for our
