Welcome Back BBQ

A huge and very belated THANK YOU to the committee of our YHS Welcome Back BBQ. What a wonderful event you gave to our school community! I would like to thank Farrell Eckman, Junko Harvey, Jenny Kusumoto, and Kelly Lieu for putting on the most successful BBQ yet. The food was delicious and was presented without a hitch. A wonderful thumbs up and welcome to the new, fabulous chicken skewers! We try and work closely with Mother Nature: we had the least amount of landfill garbage EVER! And Mother Nature kept the rains at bay.

We very much would like to thank Cecil and his team for all of their support with the cafeteria as well as for their patience and enthusiasm.

With huge gratitude,

Gillian Smith
YHS PA President

Annual Fund Wraps-Up for 2016-17

On June 15, we had our 2016/17 Annual Fund wrap up celebration. Originally scheduled to be held in the Wenying Garden, the weather had other plans for us and we ended up celebrating in the Qin Boardroom here at YHS.

The night kicked off with appies and prosecco and a chance for all of our volunteers to catch up after such a busy term. Jennifer Galli welcomed guests and, with the help of some of our Board Members, Annual Fund volunteers and staff announced our Annual Fund total this year of $1,050,424 — $50,000 over our first $1,000,000 goal!

Head of School, Chantal Gionet, spoke about the important role that Annual Fund plays in the experiences of the girls and thanked all of our volunteers for putting in such a great effort this year.

After an evening of wine, food, and celebration, guests received a potted succulent to celebrate their hard work in “helping our school grow”.
