On the morning of Friday, June 14 we held our Volunteer Recognition Reception. Each year we invite our parent volunteers together to celebrate and honour all that they do for the school throughout the year. The generosity of our parent community results in hundreds of hours of support for fundraising events like Bid Night and the Tiger Party to providing support for their daughters in the classroom and on the field.
For this year’s reception, Music Teacher Benila Ninan once again arranged a special performance to thank our volunteers. You may remember last year’s “York House Girl” set to the tune of Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl”. This year Benila had the girls perform “York House Girl” to the tune of Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”. Watch it here.
Without our parent volunteers, we simply would not be able to do all that we do. Your spirit and enthusiasm are unparalleled and deeply appreciated. It’s what makes our school such a great place to be!
As the school year nears a close, it is a good time to reflect on the year that was for our Junior School Athletics. The past year saw excellent participation numbers in each of the three terms. Term 1 – 150 students, Term 2 – 120 students, and Term 3 – 170 students. In all, we had around 75% of our students participating on our school teams. Way to go, York House!
Each year we offer opportunities for our students to enter the competitive arena. Some activities culminate in a season-ending ISEA Playday, while others will end with the ISEA Tournament or Championship. This past year saw the Tigers hoist banners in the following sports: Gr. 7A Volleyball, Cross-Country Running, and Swimming. Congratulations to all of those athletes and coaches.
We are currently building the practice schedule for next year. The 2019-20 school year will offer the same opportunities as this year: Cross-Country Running (Gr. 3-7), Volleyball (Gr. 5-7), Swimming (Gr. 3-7), Basketball (Gr. 5-7), Track & Field (Gr. 3-7), and Ultimate (Gr. 5-7). See you in the Fall.
Go Tigers Go!
