SPE THE YORK SCHO RAND MIDDLE DIVISIO
THE YORK SCHOOL (an independent school) 1320 Yonge Street Toronto, Ontario M4T 1X2
This year has been vety exciting! One of the things that has really made us vety proud indeed is becoming an Authorized IB (Primaty Year's Programme) school. Evetyone from grade 1 to 6 knows just how much work it took to achieve this. . . teachers. . . sn1dents... and of course, Mrs. Galbraith!!! Congranllations evetyone! In this Yearbook we all enjoy seeing picnu路es of ourselves at all the special days: Exhibition, Spirit Days, Oochathon etc. etc. Thanks to all those who work vety hard to put the Yearbook together under the very able leadership of Ms. Almeida and her team of Ms. Hickman, Mrs. Royce, Mrs. Bell, Mrs. ]erred, Mr. Snow and Mrs. Bedbrook. Barbara Goodwin-Zeibots Head
As always, I am "down to the wire" in preparing my yearbook write up and am being reminded on a remarkably regular basis that I have only hours remaining. It's not that I have nothing to say, but evety day that I delay bring us closer and closer to spring. I know that there is a day right at the end of Febmaty when the light from the setting sun reflects off the windows of the building across the street and fills my office with a glorious yellow glow and then I am sure that, once again, we have all smvived yet another winter! That day has arrived, so I can now safely meet my deadline. June brings the end of another wonderful school year and a host of warm memories about evetything that happened here at York. So ... find a patch of sunshine, curl like a cat and enjoy yet another fabulous edition of the yearbook! Marilyn Andrews Admissions

THE LOWER SCHOOL - GRADES ONE TO SIX At the time of writing this we are half way through our school year and look back on a variety of events: the new cafeteria, the gift of the beautiful mural in our playground, various special events and celebrations and the November authorization visit for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. On Thursday, January 30'11 , Barbara Goodwin-Zeibots received the official letter from the International Baccalaureate Organization in Geneva informing us that The York School is now a recognized IBPYP school. This certificate, which will be duly framed and hung, represents planning, reflection and growth on the part of teachers and students, and support and encouragement from parents, the board and the administration. Btyan Nixon, one of our authorization visitors, commented that The York School has a great faculty and even better kids and expressed the wish that his school could experience the same highly supportive parents that he met at York. As you can imagine, this news was greatly celebrated, our certificate well earned and the Lower School Faculty are to be warmly congratulated for this achievement. Not that the work or the planning now stops. Becoming an IBPYP school is not an end in itself, but an incentive to continue to move forward in creating a learning environment that is engaging, challenging and relevant to the world outside the classroom so that our students, as outlined in the lBO mission statement, will become, critical and compassionate thinkers, lifelong learners and informed participants in local and world affairs. To this end we are well into developing the second, grade six PYP exhibition to be held on March 4'h . The central idea for the exhibition is, Migration From Other Countries Affects The Host Country. Groups of students are busy researching and developing information on immigration and planning a multi-media display representing a particular migrant community in Toronto and the st01y of their journey, culnu路e and integration into Canadian society. I am sure the exhibition will be as vibrant and exciting as our first one was last year. Barbara Galbraith Head of the Lower School

THE MIDDLE SCHOOL As you look through the Middle School pages of the yearbook, you will see the three grade seven and the three grade eight classes involved in many interesting activities. It was a busy and exciting fall term starting with the three day leadership and team building experience at Camp Kandalore, United Way Week and the art and music afternoons. Januaty was the first anniversary of the new gymnasium, the grade seven ski day and the girls basketball tournament in Montreal. The grade eight trip to Quebec City, the boys basketball tournament, the Chinese New Year celebrations and the second annual Shakespeare Day all took place before March break. April brought our annual Oochathon, student-led conferences and Eatth Day celebrations. The spring term was filled with attistic and athletic activities including the production of The Music Man, Att and Music Night, the grade seven Cannes Film Festival, the Athletic Banquet, outing day, and sports day. The eight grade eight House Captains (Elisabeth Hass, Jordan Simon, Lauren Damp, Harrison Notkin, Lauren Davies, lssy Miller, Chris DiMatteo and Eve Kordyback) were vety enthusiastic and extremely responsible in fulfilling their duties this year and have raised the spirit level at York by organizing special events, having House assemblies and spotting activities. They also designed and put up the new House Points Board located in the south link just outside the gym offices. This enabled all students to keep a close eye on how their House was faring against the other Houses. This year we initiated a Sports and Social Council, headed by Maty Ratcliffe and Myles Kaufman, to organize an intra-mural league in the gym at lunch as well as dances and other social events for the Middle School students. As always, the Middle School faculty has been extremely innovative and dedicated in providing the students with a curriculum that is both stimulating and challenging. The teachers were involved in two new initiatives this year, a school-wide Global Ethics programme and the beginning of the implementation process for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. As you can see, the teachers have definitely been busy and enormously successful in their endeavours! I want to thank the Middle School faculty and students for a wonderful 2002/ 2003 school year.

CHINESE NEW YEAR
We had an assembly to celebrate Chinese New Year. February 1, 2003 was the Chinese New Year. Evety year has a different symbol. This is the year of the goat. To celebrate, lettuce or cabbage hangs from the front of stores and the dragon jumps up and grabs the vegetables and moves on to another store. Sometimes Chinese people set off firecrackers to scare off the dragons! By Alys Shee and Alex Tong Grade 3 ~ 87 ~/
