The day started with a reception and refreshments in the Gail Ruddy Foyer. Grandparents were then treated to three musical performances in Odette Tognetti theatre.
Samantha, Gr. 12, performed her rendition of “Pie Jesu” by Andrew Lloyd Webber. This was followed by two songs from Chorista: an early 16th century French madrigal, and a more personal piece called “Letter from a Girl to the World“. Elizabeth, Gr. 10, performed Samuel Barber’s “Nocturne op. 33“.
The rest of the day was spent touring the school and visiting classrooms. In the Junior School, the girls had a chance to show their grandparents special projects they have been working on. There were musical performances in the French classrooms, and even a some story time in the Jr. Library.
Shuttle buses took grandparents to the Little School, where they were welcomed with a special song [SKY song | SKH song].
This special day is a wonderful way to honour Yorkie grandparents. Grandparents’ Day is one of our most cherished York House traditions and is held every Spring.
