YHS Welcomes New Parents

York House School was thrilled to welcome all our new parents to dinner on October 1st at the UBC Golf Club. Welcomed by our Head of School, Julie Rousseau and our Chair of the Board of Governors, Neil Menzies, it was a night of connection, laughter, and community. 

Some of the evening’s highlights included a musical performance by Junior School Grade 7 student and harpist extraordinaire, Cyrenius and a rousing singalong of “Happy Birthday” to our Junior School Head Girl, Kate. We also must mention Farrell Eckman, President of the Parents’ Association for doing a fantastic job as MC. 

Thank you to our Chair of the New Parents’ Committee, Zena Zuo and her team of amazing parent volunteers who worked so hard behind the scenes making sure our new parents were wholeheartedly welcomed into our community. 

Welcome Back BBQ

Thank you to our Parents’ Association; all our parent volunteers; and our three talented Convenors, Junko Harvey, Jenny Kusumoto, and Kelly Liu, for putting on another terrific Welcome Back BBQ. It was wonderful to see everyone catching up with old friends and making new ones while enjoying the sunshine. 

What a great way to kick off the school year!

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