Engaged Citizenship at The York School encourages students to attend to the common good and play an active role in the life of the school, their local community and beyond.

Students are encouraged to find their voices, participate in decision-making, and to embrace their leadership potential. Through meaningful community service, we strive to develop a passion for helping others. We want to ‘enable’ them to make a difference in the lives of others.
 
As ambassadors and volunteers, our students were busy this week showing great leadership, taking the reins where needed, sharing their views, and encouraging others.

A snapshot of a day in the life of an engaged student:
  • With Drama Ways
  • Interviewing Artist Engineer Florin on how to overcome adversity
  • As Ambassadors for New parent Night
  • On a panel with experts at Interguild
  • The Junior School Action Team exploring ways to make the Junior School more accessible
The York School Community Service Club hosted an inspiring Inclusion Awareness Assembly yesterday. Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation speakers Christine Hill and her daughter Rachel described their family story and how the amazing facility supported their journey. This was followed by impactful words and a musical performance by Dramaway's Morgan Joy and Petra Sherman Dramaway.
