Reminder: Second Harvest Food Parcels due on Friday!
Only 2 days left to bring in your items for your tutor’s food parcel. We need to ship them on Friday morning! Thank you for your contributions and participation as YIS tutor groups are helping 22 families have a less stressful and more joyful holiday. (Ms. Urquhart)
- CHT Bazaar announcement
Good morning everyone,
On the 25th of January 2018, the Combating Human Trafficking group will be holding a Bazaar in the canteen from 3-5. This will be an event where people have the opportunity to sell any kinds of goods they would like. For example, bags, jewelry, second-hand good, ice blocks, ect. This could also be service groups looking to fundraise for their group. We just ask that all participants donate some of their profits back to the CHT group as this is a fundraising event. We are also looking for anyone who would like to perform during the event. We would like to stress that this event is open to anyone and everyone from the YIS community.
If you have any questions please feel free to email Sam Coutts.
Thank you! (Sam)

Heading-off to the snow this winter break? Need your skis or snowboard in good condition for the slopes? The YIS Snow Club is offering a waxing and sharpening service to raise money for Chill Japan. Bring your gear to school between December 4th and 8th, drop them off in M206 before 9AM, and we’ll have them ready within a week.
Waxing and sharpening: 1000 yen per board or skis.
All proceeds will go to support Chill Japan, and NGO helping Japanese children affected by natural disasters. (chilljapan.org) (Mr. McKeown)
- Giving Tree Donations Drive (Repeat)
As we did last year, the Sanagitachi and HOPE Cambodia service groups will be running the Giving Tree Donations drive over the next two weeks leading into Christmas break, starting Monday the 4th until Friday the 15th.
We urge everyone in the school community to go to one of the trees (either in the foyer or in the elementary area above the canteen), take a tag and bring in the item listed on the tag or any other donations before winter break.
Your support is greatly appreciated and will make a big difference to people receiving your donations. We hope everyone has a wonderful last couple of weeks of school and gets into the Christmas spirit of giving! (Sanagitachi)

- HS Book of the Day
Ms. Katy has been saying for years that gender is a social construct, but don’t believe her! Read Cordelia Fine’s “irreverent and important book”, which intelligently argues the point. #hsbookoftheday #yislearning (Ms. Katy)
