The "Stop Sign" Run


Remember the “stop sign” runs? This was a staple at the Alberta school. Perhaps the running was to train for canoe trips or snowshoeing, or maybe just the weekly “headmaster’s run”; but all students will remember every step on the road, the rolling hills along the way that made it seem a longer route than it truly was.

There were even some short cuts – but I’m sure no one used those!

Or at the Manitoba school – there were the practice runs along the Father Turney Road.
