Although the 9th of November was somewhat overshadowed this year by the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War (Nov 11), we still took the opportunity to remember the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Students could receive some extra credit by visiting a spot where the Wall once stood and submit a picture of themselves there for our display. Here is the result!

On Friday, November 9th, the BCS Kindergarten & Preschool celebrated St. Martin’s Lantern Festival where children, families and teachers came together to celebrate the tradition of sharing and exhibiting generosity within our community. Sharing one’s light is something that children begin to learn very early on in life. At BCS, we are fortunate to have a vital part in teaching the importance of sharing to children on a daily basis. From sharing a crayon to sharing a hug or kind word to a friend in need, it all begins as a child.
