The festive spirit is almost at its peak. Although delicious food and cozy fireplace gatherings are beginning to take priority, York House students have not forgotten about fitness and charity.

This past weekend, the Social Enterprise Club, led by senior students Lancy Z., Amy Z., Adrienne F., Tiffany C., and Christy O., held its first event, a two-day yoga event at York House School.

Stretch for a Cause 2Surrounded by peaceful holiday decorations and lights, Yorkies and their friends and family enjoyed an hour of refreshing yoga with wonderful instructors, Sydney Badger and Penelope Elliot.

The Social Enterprise Club is a student-run group that was newly founded at the beginning of this school year. Its purpose is to practice business concepts and put the profit to a respectable cause. This club will continue to host fun events and market useful products throughout the year.

Stretch for a CauseWith two yoga sessions, the Social Enterprise Club successfully raised over $500 for Covenant House, a non-profit organization that provides care for Vancouver street youth.

On the last weekend before winter break, students and family were able to both enjoy warmth and help provide it to youth in their community.

Stay tuned for other Social Enterprise Club events and products!
