YHS Welcomes Grandparents and Grandpals

Grandparents and grandpals came to visit their Yorkies on our annual Grandparents’ Day.

The day started with a reception and refreshments in the Gail Ruddy Foyer, followed by a presentation in the theatre. Junior Head Girl Ella and Head Girl Saskia welcomed grandparents and shared what spending time with their grandparents means to them. Acting Head of School, Julie Rousseau also welcomed grandparents and acknowledged the many who made a special trip, some from across the country, to be with us for this special day. Grandparents were then treated to special performances from our Junior Fiddle Orchestra, our Junior School Choirs (Gr. 3-4 and Gr. 5-6), and our Senior Choir, Chorista.

The rest of the day was spent touring the school and visiting classrooms. In the Junior School, the girls had a chance to show their grandparents special projects they have been working on. Shuttle buses also took grandparents to the Little School.

This special day is a wonderful way to honour Yorkie grandparents. Grandparents’ Day is one of our most cherished York House traditions and is held every spring.
