Dear BCA Families, This is the last Principal’s Corner of the school year. As the school year is winding down students continue to work hard in their academics finishing up projects and assignments and completing tests. We are proud of the academic achievements of students this year.  We rejoice in their spiritual growth as Biblical truths have impacted attitudes and behaviors over the year also.  Grade 1 Chapel Thank you to the Grade one class for reminding us of the beautiful world God created for us. The students hard work was on display as they presented the story of each [...]

Dear BCA Families, Our week began with the Grade 2 assembly on Monday. They acted out the parable of the Lost Sheep based on Luke 15, and sang the song "Loyal" by Lauren Daigle. The parable tells of how the shepherd looks after his sheep and will leave the 99 sheep to go find the one that was lost.  Jesus said that in the same way the shepherd rejoices when finding his lost sheep, God rejoices when someone who does not believe in God finds God and becomes his child. Students recited the verse where Jesus says "I am the [...]

Congratulations again to the cast of "Into the Woods Junior" for their performances earlier this month. Involved in all aspects of the production, from set pieces and props, to assisting with lighting and stage crew, these talented Grade 6-8 students put on another spectacular show under the direction of the talented Miss Michelle Wagman and Miss Christina. We cannot wait to see how they continue to shine in next year's Spring Musical! We continue to be most proud of how this community of actors support one another as they conquer the stage! Bravo!

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! I will share the results in next week’s PC.  It was brought to my attention that Compassion Society who serves the needy in the Aldershot Community is in need of food donations. 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, At Monday’s Chapel we continued with the theme of the “I am” statements of Jesus. This week I spoke to students about “I am the vine” based on John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing”. In this verse the “I” represents Jesus and the branches are those who are followers of Jesus, us. The fruitful branches are those believers who by their living and close relationship with Jesus produce much fruit. [...]
