Annual Alumni Dinner

The Annual Calgary Alumni Dinner is a signature event and a highlight of Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School’s social calendar.

This celebratory evening brings more than 200 alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and staff together for an evening of camaraderie, reconnecting and networking while honouring the year’s Distinguished Alumni Award recipient and Long Service Faculty Retirees (20 years or more at STS).

With a 112 year history and a community of over 6,000 alumni, parents of alumni, former faculty and staff; the Annual Calgary Alumni Dinner is an opportunity to celebrate and strengthen STS’ unique vibrant alumni community. Alumni engage with the School in various capacities from volunteering at school events and alumni association committees to mentoring students.

This year STS is honoured Ms. Pam Heard '73 as the 2018 Distinguished Alumni Recipient and retiring Head of School, Dr. William Jones.  

We also acknowledge the retirement of:  Mrs. Dinnie Baker, Mrs. Sharon Gibson, Mr. Dan Hall, Mr. Rob Lederer, Mr. Art Thomson, and Mr. Brian Uzick for their dedicated service to our School.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for such a wonderful evening.

Wine/Spirit Pull in support of Scholarship and Bursary Fund

We will be holding our annual wine/spirit pull at the alumni dinner again this year. 

If you would like to donate a bottle (or two) of wine/spirits for this years' alumni dinner, please contact Brenda Thompson at or 403.938.8318.  In recognition of your kind donation we will ensure that your name is mentioned in a selection of event print and/or electronic materials.

Hear is how the wine/spirit pull works.  All bottles of wine are donated and are at different price points.  The fun of the fame is that you COULD get a very nice bottle of wine/spirits for a reasonable donation of $25.00.  We would like to collect 200 bottles for this years' alumni dinner.  People who want to play, come and pay their money and then draw a number cork out of a bucket.  Each cork corresponds to a bottle of wine/spirits, etc.  You win the bottle that is numbered the same as the cork you draw.  Everyone's a winner!

Wine/spirit corks will be available for purchase during the cocktail reception and dinner (or until we are sold out).  Proceeds will go to the Scholarship and Bursary Fund.
