Random Acts of Kindness Week

The Senior School held their annual Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) week from February 28 to March 3. Thank you to Yael, Cassie, and Chanel for organizing a number of opportunities for us to collectively support our local community:

  • On Tuesday, students were encouraged to bring in any extra school supplies to donate to the Salvation Army.
  • On Wednesday, students decorated and assembled “Bags of Love’, which included toothpaste, deodorants, socks and soaps that were then donated to Covenant House Vancouver. The RAK Club sold Krispy Kreme donuts to the school community to purchase the supplies for the event.
  • On Thursday, students brought in non-perishable food items for City Reach.
  • Friday was Teacher Appreciation Day. Students in TAG wrote kind messages about why they appreciate a teacher (or teachers) in the school. The messages were posted on the bulletin board for everyone to appreciate.

RAK Week has become a tradition here at York House thanks to the annual dedication, teamwork, and kindness of our impressive student leaders!


A Successful Tiger Party 2023: Celebrating the Year of the Rabbit

On behalf of the YHS Parents’ Association, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who attended and supported the Tiger Party on February 8, 2023, at Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit. 

This event helps raise funds for the Parents’ Association Tiger Scholarship which provides the gift of a York House education at YHS. Your contribution and generosity will make a real and tangible difference in the lives of many deserving students.

We would like to extend a special thank you to our Tiger Party convenors Helen Shen and Michelle Min, and our event emcees Cecilia Cheng and Monica Li. We also wish to share our appreciation for Jason Yang and Vera Gong for their partnership in hosting the event at the  Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine. The commitment from all our Tiger Party volunteers helped make for a truly unforgettable evening for our community.
