Dear BCA Families, Our week began with the Grade 4 class leading Chapel. We continued the school theme of the "I am" statements of Jesus, which were usually told in a parable. The parable we talked about is when Jesus said "I am the true vine" (John 15:4). A parable is a story that Jesus used to teach others about God. Jesus used stories that the people he was talking to could make a connection with so that they could understand God's truths better. In the parable we presented, Jesus said He is the vine. Jesus used a vine [...]

Dear BCA Families,  It has been a great short week! Tuesday I had the privilege of travelling to London with the Track and Field team as they participated in the annual CAASO (Christian Athletic Association of Southern Ontario) Track Meet. Congratulations to all our athletes. Thanks to the many parent helpers and cheerleaders!

Our senior students helped out at Compassion Society before Christmas and were able to [...]

Dear BCA Families, This week in Chapel, Mr. Cope spoke about Christ’s statement, “I am the true vine”. He spoke of how Christ used common comparisons to things people would understand in His time period.  Mr. Cope said that today, Christ might have used cell phones to represent us and compared himself to the electric power that lets cell phones work. Without power, a cell phone cannot do anything, but with power it can do amazing things. The Bible tells us that with Christ, we can do great things for God, but without His help, we are powerless. Just [...]

Dear BCA Families, We began the week with our Chapel focusing on Easter. Thanks to Mr. Cope, Miss Jaclyn and Mrs. Bruinsma who led us in worship with the wonderful songs, “Because He Lives”, “This is Amazing Love” and “O Praise the Name”.  Mrs. Makonnen spoke to us about the significance of the resurrection. She used the story of Lazarus to illustrate that when we believe in Jesus we are raised up in new life having been set free from the spiritual death brought by our sins. Students and staff wore white to symbolize this new life. Jesus said [...]

Dear BCA Families, We had a great start to the week with our Chapel time on Monday. Mrs. Shantz spoke to us about Easter and students came prepared with their paper crosses. On one side students wrote down something that they asked God’s forgiveness for and as a class went up to the front where there was a big wooden cross, representing the cross Jesus died on to save us from our sins. They placed their paper crosses at the foot of the cross, symbolizing that Jesus forgives our sins. That’s why He died on the cross for us. [...]

Dear BCA Families, Thank you for all those who were able to participate in the Town Hall meeting this past Tuesday evening.  Although it was an emotional evening, the communication was respectful and helpful. It was clear to me that BCA parents love the school.  It was clear that you want change, you want to be involved. You want better communications. It was an important meeting and very helpful as we continue to look to God for direction and prayerfully plan for BCA’s future.  I appreciate the time you took to come out and hear our response to your [...]
