Congratulations Grade 7 Graduates!

Congratulations to our Grade 7 graduates. These girls were honoured in a ceremony on Thursday, June 21, followed by a dinner dance that same evening.

We are so impressed with the positive leadership these girls have shown in the Junior School this year. They have shown a strong commitment to playground pals and the service-learning program. Their energy, sense of fun and playful nature meant that the very young children in the YWCA daycare centres loved to have them come and play with them. They were also superstars in leading the younger students at Sports Day (The Queen Bee Games). Thank you, Grade 7s!

These incredible girls are now ready for the Senior School!

Looks like the Grade 7s are feeling nostalgic for Grade 1! Check out this impromptu rendition of the Gade 1 hit “York House Girl”.

Junior School Sports Day: “Queen Bee Games”

On Wednesday, June 20th, the 2018 Sports Day brought soaring temperatures and oodles of energy to the YHS campus. This year’s edition, The Queen Bee Games, was yet again fun-filled and exciting. With each student being placed on a team, and each team participated in 10 different relay stations, it was a constant buzzing of yellow and black. The students ran, tugged, wheeled, dribbled, shot, zigged, zagged and laughed their way around the field, the gymnasium, and the playground. A big thank you to our Grade 7 students who did a magnificent job designing, organizing, and running each of the stations.

Of course, we must also thank our inspiration, Mrs. June Nolan – “The Queen Bee”. For years June has guided our students and girls. Her classroom has always been a hive of work, with each student constantly encouraged to “Bee… her… best!”. We wish Mrs. Nolan all the best in her retirement!
