The Bid “La Maison York”: Thank You

On Thursday, November 22, our YHS community gathered at the Annual Bid Night and what a night it was! The space was truly transformed into “La Maison York” with the unique lighting, décor, and the authentic French accordion player Francois! The atmosphere in the Gail Ruddy Foyer was fun and festive with an air of anticipation while parents bid away on their phones and tablets, hoping to win one of the incredible items on display.

The Parents’ Association would like to thank everyone who attended the event. We received an incredible 327 RSVPs, allowing the event to gross $149,000 which will be put towards new cafeteria equipment, directly benefiting our girls.

There are so many people to thank for making this event happen. All the parent volunteers, the generous sponsors and donors inside and out of our community, the teachers and administration for donating incredible experiences and lending their support. And thank you to Mme Rousseau and her team for inspiring the theme and supporting us at every level. We have a very kind and generous community contributing their time, hard work, and funds—and for this, we are truly grateful.

Great fun for a great cause, thanks, everyone!

This week, basketball is underway, and the season looks promising.

Grade 8 Tigers: Each year our former Grade 7s mix with several students new to YHS, which means our Grade 8 Team is always a bit of a surprise. This year the team looks promising with an enthusiastic group of girls.

Junior Tigers: Our Junior Team is made up of several Grade 9s who won the BC Championship last season as Grade 8s. Combined with some key Grade 10 players, our Junior Team is strong. We expect to be competing among the best in BC and will play some very exciting basketball.

Senior Tigers: Our Senior Tigers are made up of many experienced and committed Grade 12s and some very talented Grade 11s. The Tigers will compete at ISAs in early December, the VGBA Tournament in mid-January, and host our 26th Street Tournament in February.

YHS looks to continue to dominate the slopes in our local zone meets and will be working hard to defend our 2017-18 BC Championship title.
