Bert Bowes Year End Assembly

BBMS would like to invite families to join us for the Year End Recognition Assembly. This Assembly acknowledges all students in the BBMS communities and serves as a wrap-up to this wonderful school year. This school year would not be possible without the individual contribution made by ALL students. We will pay a special tribute to the various groups in the BBMS community who have made a positive impact this school year.

There will some student performers and a slideshow to commemorate the year. We look forward to seeing you there! The Assembly will start at 10:00 am on Thursday, June 28, 2018.

#WEWalkforWater

Thank-you to all the organizers and students who participated in #WEWalkforWaterBBMS. Your dedication fundraising and increasing awareness around global water issues is a step in the right direction.
