On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff participated in one of the oldest traditions at STS – Speech Day. Throughout the day, Middle and Senior School students delivered performances in a number of categories including musical theatre, radio newscast, impromptu, poetry recitation, interpretative reading, persuasive speeches, solo and duo acting.
On February 27, 2019 members from our STS alumni family were guided through the history of cocktail making, muddling, stirring, shaking, and smoking techniques at the “Art of Making Cocktails Workshop” with fellow alumnus, Nick Suche ’07, owner of Shelter Cocktail Bar and Lounge, Calgary. We sampled three delicious cocktails, enjoyed some bar snacks and ended the evening with a cocktail pouring contest.
Thank you Nick and staff for hosting this fun event and teaching us the correct techniques involved in mixing drinks!
Twenty-one young alumni shared their stories about the rewards, surprises, and challenges that follow after graduating from STS with our Grade 11 and 12 students at our annual ‘Tales from Undergrad Years’ sessions held on February 20 and 21, 2019. In a panel format, our alumni spoke about how they chose their university and undergrad program, how they balance academics and social activities, their experiences as a freshman, or their reason for taking a gap year. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and acquire advice from these alumni.
Lots of fun and laughs were enjoyed at the STS alumni social, Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at the Blackbird Public House, downtown Vancouver. Thank you to those that were able to attended, and to those that weren’t, we look forward to seeing you next time.
