Middle School

Supporting health and wellness during difficult times

It was quite an atypical year to say the least! STS worked hard to encourage student engagement and reduce feelings of isolation during several months of RAPID (Remote Alternate Program Instructional Delivery), due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From themed days like crazy hat day and bring-a-stuffed-animal-to-zoom, to our own version of the newscast 'Some Good News', students had opportunities to connect and have a good laugh. 

Fall Backpacking trips

It was a very different fall for STS outdoor education trips. Adaptability and personal agency* are two of the life skills we hope students will further develop through their STS outdoor experiences and there have been few years when the learning opportunities have been more broad, real, and obvious than this year. 

Innovation, creativity, and connection in the midst on a pandemic

In March 2020, when schools around the world had to close their doors to keep students, staff and their loved ones safe, at STS we made a firm commitment to our families: a promise to not only finish the school year and cover the required outcomes, but to continue to provide enrichment and a strong sense of community while ensuring our students flourished and succeeded.

Personal Project Exhibition 2020

Under normal circumstances STS would host a physical exhibition to share and celebrate the enormous work that our Grade 10 students have put into their Middle Years Programme (MYP) Personal Projects. This year, due to the closure of our school campus to limit the spread of COVID-19, we have opted to post our Exhibition online instead.
