Parent Council Meeting

posted Sep 20, 2017, 6:19 AM by Steve Oliver

 We hope you have had a successful start to the school year! On Thursday, September 28th at 7pm we will be holding our first school council meeting of 2017/18 in the BCHS library. We extend an invitation to all parents and guardians who wish to attend. This is a nice way to meet the school admin team and to hear about opportunities and events going on within the school – elementary and high school combined.


Our first meeting will include executive role elections and decisions on dates and frequency of future council meetings. You will have the opportunity to sign up as a parent/guardian representative which will allow you to vote on any matters that come before the council. Anyone is welcome at our meetings whether they are parent reps or not and there is no obligation to attend every meeting. If you have questions or are unable to attend but wish to have your name added as a parent rep please contact us at


Hope to see you there!

Semester 2 Full Disclosure is Thursday, May 4th.

posted May 1, 2017, 5:47 PM by Jennifer Malley Victorino

What is full disclosure?
Full-disclosure is a date set by the Ministry of Education that determines the final date by which a course can be dropped and not appear on a student's transcript.  Courses dropped prior to the full-disclosure date are marked as a deletion when reported to the Ontario colleges & universities, whereas courses dropped after full disclosure are marked as a "withdrawal". Withdrawn courses will include a mark at the time the course was withdrawn.  Deleted courses do not remain on a student's transcript.  

The intention of the full disclosure date is to allow all students/families, not just those in grade 12 applying to post-secondary schools, an appropriate period of time to reflect on midterm achievement prior to making a decision about dropping a course from the permanent record.

Please contact Student Services if you have any questions (905) 634-7768 x229.
