Junior Tigers Update: November 29, 2018

The first games are fast approaching for the Grade 6 Basketball team. Their first game is at (and against) Crofton House School on Tuesday, December 4th. Good luck team!

Last weekend, November 23-24, the Grade 7A team played in a tournament at St. John’s School (SJS). The SJS Slam saw eight teams from around the Lower Mainland gathered to play some very early season basketball. The girls overcame some first game nerves and posted a scrappy win against Stratford Hall, 21 – 10. Next up was a semi-final match against Khalsa. The Tigers used superior conditioning to maintain pressure throughout the first half, and early in the 3rd quarter, the Tigers were able to pull away winning 18 – 6. Off to the final against Mulgrave! The final pitted the scrappy Tigers against a talented and big Mulgrave squad, and in the end, Mulgrave proved to be the superior team winning 34 – 9. It was a great experience for the Tigers and the girls were thrilled to bring home the 2nd place trophy. There were several outstanding moments of learning and growth. Madeleine Wardle was named the Tigers tournament MVP. Congrats Tigers!

The first swim meet is fast approaching for our Junior School Swi00m Team. The first meet, hosted by Southpointe Academy, is the Beth Heras Memorial Relay Meet at Watermania on Monday, December 10th! Have fun everyone!

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!
