Dear BCA Families, With a break in the weather and temperatures heading closer to zero, I hope you can enjoy the long weekend ahead and get outdoors! It has been hard for students this week with the extreme cold temperatures, beautiful snow cover and no outdoor recesses! They were very disappointed. We enjoyed a short video in chapel this week based on John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the father, except through me”. As always our chapel time began with Mr. Cope and Miss Jaclyn leading us in worship songs. [...]

Dear BCA Families, What an interesting week, weather wise. The students were indoors on Monday when it was too cold to go outdoors, with all the fresh snow ready to be tobogganed on. Tuesday was more seasonal and students enjoyed a great day of outdoor recesses. Wednesday was another inside day due to wet and extreme slush! Thursday and today were more seasonal. Students love tobogganing and building snow forts and hopefully they will continue to enjoy the outdoors. Chapel Mr. Cope message on Monday’s chapel was based on the words of Jesus, “I am the way and the [...]

Dear BCA Families, Our Chapel service this week focused on lighting the second Advent Candle, the candle of Preparation (or waiting or prophecy). Thanks to Ella and Isabelle for lighting the candle and reading scripture. Following the lighting of the Advent candle and Bible readings we enjoyed singing Christmas carols. We were able to celebrate the accomplishments of some of our SOTA students as we listened to them perform. We heard from Sofia and Gabriella who played piano. Madame Makonnen presented the Scripture passage in Isaiah that the whole school will learn during the month of December. JK – [...]

Dear BCA Families, As we enter the Christmas season our Chapel this week focused on Advent. Christians throughout history have celebrated this season of spiritual preparation with Advent readings—short Bible passages read during the lighting of the Advent wreath. This time of reflection invites us to remember the reason for the season: the eternal Jesus Christ taking on human flesh. Christians have observed the four weeks leading up to Christmas Day as a special time to prepare their hearts. Grade 5 students Luc and Josh lit the first advent candle and read Bible verses. There are four candles and [...]

Dear BCA Families, It has been a wonderful week of learning at BCA! Our week started with our Chapel speaker Mr. Cope who spoke to us about the I am statement of Jesus, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture” John 10:9 He spoke about how Jesus called himself the gate for his sheep. Gates were used to protect the entrance to the safe pen for the sheep. If there was no gate for the sheep pen, the shepherd would literally lay in front of [...]

Dear BCA Families, The Grade 7 class presented the Remembrance Day chapel on Monday. Jack opened the assembly playing “Oh Canada” on the flute. We wanted to remind all those in attendance of the importance of remembering the past. With this idea in mind the students wrote and performed a skit about the role women have played in Canadian military history. We wanted to remember that keeping peace means not just staying in the past but bringing the idea of peace to our present. Some of the students taught a song “I’ve got peace in my [...]

Dear BCA Families, This week in Chapel I introduced Jesus’ statement, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved” John 10:9. This statement was written at a time when sheep and shepherds were familiar to everyone. The shepherd had an important role of keeping the sheep safe in their pens. The sheep pens were caves, sheds, or open areas surrounded by walls made of stones or branches. The shepherd often slept in the pen to protect the sheep. Just as a shepherd cares for his sheep, Jesus, the Good Shepherd, cares for his flock (those who [...]

Dear BCA Families, It is hard to believe that we are already in to our second month of school! Students have settled in to their routines and are looking forward to the first long weekend of the year, Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for. Miss Bowler and the Grade 5 class presented an excellent Chapel on Monday about Thanksgiving and reminded us to have an “attitude of gratitude”. Pictured below is our BCA tree, decorated by students with fall leaves. Students wrote on a leaf what they are thankful for and attached it to the tree. [...]
