Food Bank Frenzy!

On October 11, our young Yorkies took to the field for Food Bank Frenzy. It is one big relay that has provided a fun and active way for our school to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society for over 10 years. 

The goal of the Food Bank Frenzy is to raise awareness of the Food Bank’s needs, to show off our school spirit, and of course, to have a friendly House competition. Each House Team must race 200 non-perishable food items around the course. It is amazing to watch 800 items of food zip around the field. When we add the surplus items and generosity of our Grade 1 and 2 students, our community collected over 1000 items of food for the GVFB!

A big thank you to our House Leaders who prepared their teams. Also, a big thank you to each family for your donation. Way to go York House! 

Sports-a-Rama

School spirit was also out in full force for Sports-a-Rama, the first Senior House event of the year. Students and staff took part in various relay games, the three-legged race, and a very spirited game of Dodgeball. Thank you to our House Captains, Chloe, Emily, Victoria, and Aiyana.

Check out our highlights from the first week of school, including the first day back, Sports-a-Rama, and the Welcome Back BBQ:
