St. Stephen has a strong school spirit. Students participate in many aspects of school life, and share a sense of community. We have a reputation of being an outstanding school with events and activities that allow students to shine and reveal their strengths and talents.


School assemblies bring students and staff today to celebrate successes and discuss important school issues.  See our assembly day timetable.


Dances occur four to five times a year. We host a dance for Grade nine students, and additional dances to celebrate Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, and one in the spring.
