On November 11th, we offered thanks to the countless brave men and women for the sacrifices that they made. Our service featured music, letters to soldiers, artwork and poems created by our boys to commemorate this very important day.
Sterling Hall’s first PA Pizza Day of the year was held on Thursday, October 29. And since it just so happened to also be Halloween, our Parents Association generously provided a special treat for all our boys to make the day extra special!
This year, on October 29, something is a-brewing! Our boys were more than excited to trade in their school uniforms for Halloween costumes or a black and orange ensemble over their PE gear. This is a day that allows us all to let our hair down and have some fun!
There was concern that this eagerly awaited SHS tradition would not be possible this year, but our PA came up with a brilliant solution. Why not provide our SHS families with everything they need (including the secret recipe) to make their very own Shark Bark at home!
Our SHS parents will have the opportunity to meet with faculty virtually from Oct 29-30, to learn about their son’s progress and come away feeling reassured and closer to our school and community. Parents will receive an email on October 28 that contains the Zoom links to connect with their boy’s teachers.
On Oct 28, our parents, coffee in hand, participated in a PA meeting via Zoom. They learned about "Sterling Hall Through the Years" in our session titled, "From JK to Grade 8: How SHS Uniquely Prepares Your Son for His Best Future."
Our Co-Curriculars are an excellent opportunity for boys to develop their interests in a subject area outside the classroom and build curiosity, teamwork and leadership skills. Most clubs, while virtual, allow boys to try something new and have fun.
Sterling Hall showed our recognition of the harm the residential school system inflicted on Indigenous children and communities by wearing orange shirts and exploring the history, the impact and the hope for generations to come.
SHS continues its proud tradition of participating in the Terry Fox Run on October 9. Since 2004, SHS has been one of the top fundraising schools in the world, raising over $1.5M in the fight to cure cancer.
Anchor Day, held on Sept 21, allowed each grade to engage in an exciting new outdoor program that helped to “anchor” our boys and our faculty to SHS as we build Character, Community, and a sense of Belonging.
We at Sterling Hall love our Friday Assemblies! After a summer away from them, we were excited to see what our boys and the SHS team had in store for us - and we were certainly not disappointed!
Faculty and Staff spent a day engaging in professional development to gain new and relevant insights and training in areas such as diversity and inclusion. Future PD sessions are already in the works!
Parents had an opportunity to get to know their son's teachers and learn about this upcoming school year on September 10. Thank you to all who joined us!
Our boys came back to school on September 9th and we are not sure who was more thrilled to have them in our classrooms again - them or us! Have a look on our School Reopening Page for more information!
SHS welcomed our newest boys on September 8 with a tour of the school, some quality time with their teachers and peers, and an introduction to life at Sterling Hall!
