March 9 / 2018

This week, the Grade 5 students in the Junior School hosted the PYP Exhibition. The exhibition serves as the culminating learning celebration of the Primary Years Programme. It is an example of student-centred learning, so we will let the students tell you themselves about what they learned.

Our IB learners were knowledgeable about their issues, inquirers and thinkers during their research, open-minded and balanced when working in a group, caring about their classmates, communicators of their action, reflective of the exhibition process, risk-takers during the community carousel, open ceremonies and presentations. Congratulations to all the Grade 5 students, teachers, and families on an excellent exhibition!

The Fulford League - Judges Needed!

Dear parents and members of the York School Community,

The Fulford League is the oldest student debate leagues in Ontario. Comprising of 21 CIS schools, the League meets three times a year in healthy competition. This year, The York School has the honour of hosting the final competition of the League calendar. The Spring Fulford event will be held on the 21st of April in the Middle and Senior School. The prepared motion is: This house should rescind Aung San Suu Kyi’s honorary Canadian citizenship.

In order for the event to run smoothly and to ensure that students from other CIS schools have a great experience, we are in need of debate judges! No experience is required, as there is a briefing on how to judge debate. The briefing will begin at 9 am and the final round will end between 2 and 2:30 pm. If you are free, please fill out this form and join us in what promises to be an exciting day of discourse and discussion!
