The little school dropped by the science wing at the senior school.
Senior students Jie, Helen, Nicole, Emilie and Caitlin, conducted mini science experiments with the assistance of the little school “helpers.”
Mr. Riendl showed what happens when you mix dry ice (carbon dioxide) and water (and soap!), Caitlin, Gr. 12, told a story about witch and a spell (“Aabraa kadabbra kalamazoo!”) – with a little help from acid-base reactions.
Mr. Ruse demonstrated the chemical reaction of luminol, which glows in the dark (CSI anyone?). The girls even stopped off in Mr. Britt’s room, where he introduced them to Bella, the snake. Watch the video below.
York House welcomed 400 grandparents and grandpals to the school on April 21st for Grandparents Day, a favourite York House tradition.
Grandparents and grandpals toured the school, visited classrooms, and best of all, saw their grandchildren in action.
They came from as far away as: Australia, East Africa, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mainland China, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and the United States! Grandparents who were unable to attend wrote letters that were read aloud in class.
