BHS is once again collecting for the Spirit of Christmas to help those in need in our community. Students at BHS have been bringing in boxes of hot chocolate and boxes of tissues (Kleenex). There are still a few days left to collect. If you can help support this cause donations can be sent in with students or dropped off at the main office.
Thanks to Sobeys, Bathurst High School students will be supported with gift cards to purchasing healthy breakfast items for the “Kitchen Door Breakfast Program” that enables the students at the school to have a healthy breakfast to start their day.

These gracious students volunteered to fill one or more boxes this year. This BHS Music Dept. humanitarian effort started last year and participation more than doubled this year!
