Calgary Hitmen Teddy Bear Toss

When we got to the game, the kids were beyond excited to see a number of their STS friends in our section. We were greeted by Brian Uzick, Community Engagement Coordinator for 50th Anniversary of STS and Brenda Thompson, Director Community Engagement, as well as a few other STS staff and faculty. When the game started the kids were screaming, dancing, and anxiously awaiting the time to start tossing.

Beer Tasting & Unveiling of the STS Anniversary Beer

It all started with a phone call from our daughter Randi Hardy (Thorbjornsen) ’13 “Hey mom, we are coming up to see you in a couple of weeks”.  We were excited to see our out-of-town family, but in reality they were not making the drive from Lethbridge to see us, but to partake in the STS Beer Tasting & Unveiling of the STS Anniversary Beer event.

Yoga in the Aspen Lodge for STS's 50th Anniversary

On a crisp November morning, my yoga mat tucked under my arm, I headed to Aspen Lodge after completing school drop-off.  When I opened the door to the cozy lodge I was warmed by the fireplace and welcomed into the room by Brian Uzick, Community Engagement Coordinator for the 50th Anniversary celebrations.  Several parents had already unrolled their mats and were chatting and settling in for a peaceful hour of movement and mindfulness.

Cross-Country Skiing/Snowshoeing at STS

The STS campus is a winter wonderland in January so we invite you to bring your friends and family for an afternoon of cross country skiing and/or snowshoeing. What a great way to spend an afternoon - frolicking in the snow.  After we're done, you're invited to stay for hot chocolate, coffee, cappuccino, or tea - all served with cookies!

Wilson Coulee Observatory

As I approached the path towards the observatory, I could smell the beautiful fall night with crisp leaves crunching under my feet and see soft lit candles (fake) leading everyone towards the fun evening ahead. As I walked down the path, I was greeted by Mrs. Grant-Watt, Head of School,  saying hello to all of those arriving.

Stampeders Game on the Telus Patio

What better way to catch up with both old and new friends alike than the excuse of a birthday party? On October 2, 48 STS community members attended the STS 50th anniversary event at McMahon Stadium. Fifty years is a good reason to sit front and center at a football home game on the Telus Patio.

STS scores big with the CAIS U-13 Basketball tournament

STS hosted over 250 young basketball players and their coaches from independent schools across Canada. STS is the ONLY Canadian Accredited Independent School(CAIS) to host and billet these many athletes! It is a true testament to the strength of our community when we have well over 60 families open their homes to host these 11 and 12-year-old boys visiting our school. Almost one-third of our entire school faculty and staff were directly involved in this fabulous event.
