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 has been a great week of learning at BCA! We enjoyed meeting all of you at last night’s Parent Teacher Interview evening. We hope the night was a great opportunity for you to connect with your child’s teacher(s) and learn more about your child’s progress. I have heard from a few parents about our after school pick up routine. I have addressed these concerns with our “on duty” staff and would like families to be aware of the expectations for pick up, effective immediately. I have heard and observed that many vehicles approach the roped [...]

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. [...]

Dear BCA Families, As we welcome fall I am thankful to God for all the beauty around us! Soon the trees will be in their magnificent fall colours! Grade 4 students took advantage of the beautiful weather this week by working on their novel studies outdoors. Our boy’s and girls’ soccer teams were in Brantford today participating in a tournament. As I write this the girls are playing in the consolation round. They certainly got the best day of the week for their tournament. We welcomed a wonderful guest speaker to Chapel this week, Pastor Chris [...]
