  • CHT Bazaar announcement (Repeat)

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 would like to sell during the event please sign up using the following survey
If you would like to perform at the event please sign up using this link

If you have any questions please feel free to email Sam Coutts.

Thank you! (Sam)

Hello everyone,

It is time for prom 2018!

We are in the middle of planning this years prom and in order to do that effectively we need all seniors, juniors and teacher to fill out the surveys attached bellow. The questions are used to give us an idea of how many people are attending, any food allergies and general logistics. Some questions will be finalized later closer to the actual date so don’t worry if your answers are going to change.

Prom this year will be held on the 25th of May 2018. More information regarding theme and venue will be released soon.

Don’t hesitate to ask the prom committee any questions you may have.

Thank you!
