This past Friday, York House held its official ribbon cutting ceremony and open house to celebrate the grand opening of the beautiful new senior school building. Going along with the carnival theme, there were balloon animals, face painters, clowns, circus performers, a dance troupe and living statues for everyone to enjoy. Live music could be heard throughout the halls; jazz band Parallel Frequency played in the new foyer, and students Rosy, Gr. 9, and Kathleen, Gr. 10, performed original songs on the field. Parents and members of the YHS community were able to tour about the building during the festivities. The cafeteria was overflowing with amazing food. The barbeque was undeterred by the rain, and for dessert, everyone enjoyed the colourful cupcakes. Special thanks to the many helping hands, including parent volunteers and 120 student volunteers. The turnout from parents, students, teachers and friends truly made this a special occasion. Congrats YHS, here’s to many more wonderful years to come! See more photos from the Grand Opening here.
