Old Boys Events, 2019-2020
Game Day at the Hall 2019 -- a great way to kick off the school year!
The games continue! Every other Tuesday night, scheduled this school year from September to June, Old Boys have gathered in the Eaton Shier Gymnasium to take part in the ever-popular pick-up basketball games. This incredibly successful initiative has continued to draw alumni of all ages looking for a good workout and some fun. Stay tuned for updates on shsoldboys Instagram and Facebook. Email [email protected] or [email protected] for more details any time.
Old Boys Basketball Association
"I make an effort to go back to the Hall and play because of the special place that gym has in my heart. Not only is it where I developed the love for one of my favourite sports, but I also learned essential life skills such as teamwork and sportsmanship. At the end of the day, my friends and I know we can forget about life for a few hours and just feel like boys again.” - Josh Satov ‘15
“Our Old Boys show up because of their connection to Sterling Hall. This was a special place for them; they fondly recall their time on the court and in the school. These evenings are a chance to relive those great times while also getting a great game of basketball.” Attendance continues to grow, and our Old Boys want a competitive basketball game they can count on every other week. They also know that the alumni and their friends who do show up care about the same things and have the same goal in mind.” - Coach Kilmer
Founder's Day / Terry Fox Run
Howard, McClintock, Morrison and Plumb House (this year’s back-to-back Ferris Cup champ) spirit remains vibrant, even for Old Boys! We are always thrilled to welcome back our alumni every October for our annual Founder’s Day/Terry Fox Run. We look forward to gathering together again in the future to take those laps in honour of such an important cause! Perhaps a virtual run is in store this year? Enjoy these photos of past visitors.
Another fabulous road trip last November to Queen's University! Great turnout, including a large contingent
from the Class of 2012!
SHS on the Road
STEPs Dinners Continue to Provide Support, Data
Classes of 2018 and 2019
Our STEPs (Secondary Tracking Education Program) events continue to be successful and valuable. These semi-annual reunion dinner gatherings with our youngest Old Boys deliver mentorship and support to our graduates as they navigate the transition from their SHS years to high school, also providing SHS with vital academic and character development data that is used for curriculum planning. The Classes of 2018 and 2019 appreciated their respective evenings to mingle, share good eats and enjoy great fun this past year.
To kick off the holiday season, Old Boys and faculty from near and far gathered once again at Duke of York on December 19, 2019. As always, both new and familiar faces dropped in with old classmates, eager to make new memories and reminisce about their glory days at the Hall.
Traditions Hold Strong
We look forward to rescheduling these popular events:
Sincere Gratitude for our Nav Team
"I am extremely appreciative of the opportunity to be a member of the OBA Navigation Team. I believe it is very important for the school to have direct input from dedicated alumni, so that the alumni can remain fresh and exciting. The entire team shares a true passion for SHS, bringing Old Boys together through various events that our alumni community actually enjoys attending. " - Lucas Verde ‘11
