On September 30th, we'll be participating in Orange Shirt Day. Please see the following explanation for Orange Shirt Day provided to us from the Province:

WHAT? A day to listen, learn, and celebrate Indigenous culture

WHY Orange Shirts? Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in May 2013. It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations. Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

Wearing an orange shirt and promoting the slogan, Every Child Matters, is an affirmation of our commitment to raise awareness of the residential school experience and to ensure that every child matters as we focus on our hope for a better future in which children are empowered to help each other.


The school store will be open for students at lunch hour on Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Fridays.  BMHS hoodies are $35.  We also have lots of other BMHS swag for great prices.  Cash or cheque only.  


On October 7th and 8th, at the Moncton Coliseum there will be a post-secondary school information event. Grade 11 and 12 students will be attending on one of those days, and it is open to the public during the evening of the 7th. More information, as it becomes available will be posted on the BMHS webpage.

The guidance counsellors will be having information sessions next week, on Wednesday and Friday during the second half of lunch, for students interested in learning more about scholarships, where to find them and how to apply. There will be a parent information session on October 22nd beginning at 7pm in the BMHS theatre.​
