In honour of all their dedication to patrolling our school sidewalks, Yorkdale Central is pleased to be rewarding our participating students by sending them to the Saskatchewan Jamboree on April 30. This was our first year for the program and we hope to see it grow in future years.
The Grade 3 Bike Rodeo will take place on May 24. Bikes can be dropped off at the student centre. The event takes place all morning. Thank you to the RCMP, the Fire Department and the City of Yorkton for their assistance.
Yorkdale Central School is pleased to enter into another partnership with Experiences Canada. Our collaboration has allowed another cultual exchange between YCS Royals and another area of Canada. This year, a group of Grade 7/8 students venturing to Nunavut in April. In May, our Nunavut friends will visit us in Saskatchewan. There are truly no borders to the learning of our YCS studetns.
In April, a group of Royals completed the first leg of a cultural exchange with students in Iqualuit, Nunavut. This occurred through the school's collaboration with Experiences Canada. The school has enjoyed several years of cultural but this was by far the most diverse. Students now look forward to hosting the Iqualuit students from May 22-29.
