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

Award-Winning Playwright Meets with the Gr. 11 and 12s

On Wednesday, September 27th, Michele Riml, Jessie Richardson Award-winning Canadian playwright, came in to speak to the Grade 11 and 12s about turning their stories into art.

Michele has had 14 plays produced in nine countries around the world. Students in English 11 and 12 read her play, “Miss Teen,” and had a chance to listen to her speak about her creative process, as well as tools and techniques she uses as a writer to draw in and connect with her audience, and her use of ¬†humour to discuss difficult content.
