The annual school-wide recitation competition, “The Cat’s Meow“, wrapped up on February 6th in the Odette Tognetti Theatre. Sixteen girls in grades 8-12 progressed through class and grade rounds to make it to this final and all should be commended for their impressive presentations.

In Grade 8: Shae W., Michelle N., and Isabelle C. In Grade 9: Colette R., Fraser J., and Sarah T. In Grade 10: Alannah S., Jaclyn L., and Marissa L. In Grade 11: Constance L., Shannon S., and Anna B. And in Grade 12: Myriam V., Amabel S., Eleni J., and Amy Z.

The night began with a hilarious opening by ‘Amy Poehler’ and ‘Tina Fey’ (otherwise known as Jasmyne K. and Constance L., our Public Speaking Heads and MCs for the evening). As we watched each recitation, it became very clear that this was one of the strongest finals to date! After much, much deliberation, the winners were chosen by four esteemed judges–YHS parents Agnes Finan, Gaby Eirew, Tamara Taggart, and local actor Patrick Sabongui.
