Congrats to the Yale track and field team on a gruelling but great week at the Fraser Valleys. Numerous team members had their best performances of the season with many qualifying for the BCs. Hats off to Eddie "the Machine" Masic in the triple jump, Abraham "the rocket launcher" Falls in the Javelin and Anna "faster that a hummingbird" Holota in the 800 and 1500. Athlete of the meet was Connor "the renaissance man" Harrision who, after setting two massive personal best in the 400, came back with with a strong anchor-leg in the 4 by 400 relay to help his team defeat cross-town rivals Mouat. Congrats all. All team members must see Mr. Wight sometime today.

Yale Students Staying Up Late For A Good Cause!
On Friday night, about 300 enthusiastic students from Yale Secondary showed up for the school’s second annual all-night fundraising event, Live to Give.
Students rotated through 10 activity rooms throughout the building, including Hunger Games-themed activities, glow-in-the-dark dodgeball, a candy room, a mechanical bull ride and more.
Each student that attended had to raise at least $50, which will go towards building schools in Sierra Leone via the Canadian charity organization Free the Children.
Doug Primrose, a teacher at Yale, said they have nearly reached this year's fundraising goal of $20,000. READ MORE. . .
