My Device, My Learning Parent Survey

BMHS My Device, My Learning Parent Survey

Dear BMHS Parents,
As some of you may have heard, many of our high schools across the province are preparing to offer wireless internet for students to use with personal devices. Our district has named this initiative “My Device, My Learning”. What this means is that students will be able to bring in personal digital devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops to school and can connect them to our wireless internet. This is an exciting learning and educational opportunity for our students and staff.
Please complete the following questions as we gather information to be used in our application process to grant student access to Wi-Fi.  Click on the link below

Highlanders head to Improv Nationals!

In late February, the Canadian Improv Games NB/PEI Regional tournament was held at the Moncton Masonic Hall.  10 teams competed, including two from Bernice MacNaughton High School.  The BMHS Low Ladies placed first and won the opportunity to represent the region at the CIG National Improv Festival in Ottawa.


This is not only the first time a team from BMHS will compete at the National level, but it’s also the first time that a team comprised only of female performers will represent our region.


It takes a considerable amount of financial resources to participate in the National festival and to help offset the cost of the trip, the BMHS Improv team is holding a fundraising raffle.  There are three prize packages to be won.  Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20.  They are available from Mr. Trider in the BMHS office.  The draw is on May 30th.

As Ken prepares for his first date with Steph, he downloads audio advice from across the centuries. His date quickly spirals out of control as he tries to simultaneously follow dating tips from a communist-fearing nationalist, a pirate, a southern belle, and a pilgrim.

Meanwhile, Emily Piper accidentally throws a javelin over a mountain range. Meanwhile, Herman is suddenly nailed to a tree by a flying javelin. Lives and stories collide to create a truly unique and mesmerizing tale.
