Service Saturday @ Pacific Spirit Park

On October 30, a group of Yorkies spent their afternoon at Pacific Spirit Park.

Dressed in their boots, their gloves and eye glasses, the girls were kept busy either pulling ivy or bundling up branches of ivy to be taken out of the forest. It was an afternoon of hard work – but the gang from York House and Saint George’s also had fun, doing something to benefit the largest park in their own back yard.

Interested students can volunteer at our next Service Saturday on November 27.

Check out the Community Service Board or talk to Ms. Stanger for more information.

For the past few years there has been an on going relationship between Class 3H and the seniors at South Granville Park Lodge.

During the visits, two girls are paired with one senior and they visit the same senior every month. The girls will interview their senior, read to them, chat, and make crafts. This is an amazing opportunity for the girls to make a difference in a senior’s life. They will learn how to interact with people different than themselves and they learn responsibility and empathy. The series of visits allow for the girls and the residents to build a true connection.
