Junior School Library Birthday Book Donations

Tera donating the book Ready Set School!

A long tradition at York House is for our junior school students to celebrate their birthday by presenting a book to the library. The birthday girl presents a book during assembly as her gift to the library collection for all students to enjoy. In recognition of this gift, inside each donated book is a bookplate with the donor’s name and birthday. These birthday book donations are one way that our junior school library collection is kept up to date with new and popular titles on an ongoing basis. Thank you!

Sports Day & Spirit Day

Sports Day 2011

The junior school had two fun-filled days to mark the end of the school year.

First up was Sports Day. This year we went with the very fitting theme “We Are All Canucks.” It was a sea of blue and green, as the entire school got in the spirit, dressing up in their Canuck gear. The day ended with a Sundae Party hosted by the Parents’ Association.

The next day was Spirit Day. Due to the enormous success of Jump Rope for Heart, the junior girls earned certain Spirit Day “privileges”, including face painting their teachers, teachers coming dressing up as students (including the males!), students dressing up as teachers, giving Mr. Oates a “makeover”, a water balloon fight, and a silly string fight!
