Principal's Message

We returned to a full week of activities at BCHS this week after a nice long weekend. The stretch from Thanksgiving to Christmas is the longest uninterrupted time in the school calendar and we look forward to gaining momentum in the first semester. Below are a few updates from the school.

1. Portable Progress

In trying to keep you updated on our building plans, the preparation for the portables is almost complete. We are awaiting the buildings and some permitting. At this point, we do not know when they will be installed except that the preparation work is moving along. Staff and students are doing a great job of managing in a crowded building!

2. Cross Country heading to provincials

As you'll see below, our BCHS athletics are keeping many of our staff and students busy. This Saturday, we have three students heading to provincials in Cross Country. Congratulations to Willem Grant (1st place in South Central Zone), Chaysum Gikas (3rd) and Zayne Bonghazale (9th) on great finishes at zones. Good luck competing against the best runners in the province this weekend!

3. Parent Teacher Conferences - save the date

Our Parent Teacher Conferences will be hosted on Zoom this fall, with the events running from 4:30 - 7:30 on Thursday, October 28th and Thursday, November 4th. We look forward to connecting with our parent and student community on those evenings to talk about their learning!

Have a great weekend and see you next Friday,

Ryan Reed
Principal | Bert Church High School
