Exchange Trip to China

Earlier this year, BBMS established a sister school agreement with Yangzhong Foreign Lanuguage Junior Middle School in Yangzhong China. Two teachers along with 15 grade 9 students will be leaving in a few weeks to travel to China to visit the school. We are very excited for the many opportunities this trip will offer!

Special thank-you to Tammy and the team at Shoppers Drug Mart for the generous donation of travel kits for everyone going on the trip.

Also, thank-you to the City of Fort St. John for the city pins and toques to give to our homestay families and people that we meet.
