In 2008, the Junior School raised funds for four different charities by holding a Read-a-Thon.
One of the organizations that benefited was PADS, a society that raises and trains dogs for people who are facing challenges of life with a physical disability or who are deaf or hard of hearing.
With York House’s support, PADS placed “York” at the New Horizons, a senior’s care facility in Campbell River.
Watch the slideshow below featuring York’s return visit to YHS, and the thank you card from the seniors at New Horizons:
On another wet miserable day, our ski team again swept the competition, this time led by Siobhan and Amelia. On the snowboard side, the girls had a good showing, especially Sylvia who finished 1st.
In basketball, the Junior Tigers did well in Kamloops losing a close game in the final.
The Senior Tigers beat BC’s #3 AAA team (SKSS) in the final 60-50, despite SKSS having a 6’4″ star! Laura was named MVP and Alisha an All-Star. The Tigers beat AA#6 Sahali and AA#4 NVSS enroute to the final.
