  • PP Survey: Limited resources in the YIS community (Repeat)

Hiya! For my personal project I am raising awareness about the limited resources in the YIS community. I am thinking of opening a shop on Instagram where people can buy/donate second hand items. So sorry for making you take another PP survey but it would really help me! Thank you1 (An Dang)

  • Special Schedules Next Week

G10, G11, and G12 Students: Next week you will all be on special schedules as a result of seminar week for G12 and some special sessions for G10 and G11. We have done our best to make the week useful for all.
As an added bonus, we have moved the regularly scheduled HS lunch to the 12:35-1:15 slot, as it was last year so everyone will be able to eat a little earlier.

Please note, you may be in different classrooms than usual (even for registration). Here are the schedules for you to review:

Student Copy – G10 Student Copy – G11 Student Copy – G12

All students should consult with these schedules to determine where they should be and when. Your tutors will review these with you this week to make sure you know where you need to be and when you need to be there. (Mr. Redlich)
