BHS recognizes May 17th as International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. The BHS Bully Busters and Gay Straight Alliance will be hosting an awareness campaign in the school cafeteria at lunch on Tuesday in order to put an end to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We hope to give rise to a general open-mindedness towards diversity in our school and in our society.
The drama crew has done it again! Last night, they put on two remarkable performances: Fast Food Shakespeare written by Burton Bumgarner and directed by Vanessa Abernethy and Amber Belanger and Timeless, written and directed by Lauren Tulloch.
In April Bathurst High School attended tha Bathurst Music Festival held in the ESN Auditorium. The musical groups performed exceptionally well and brought home several awards from the event. BHS Vocal Ensemble won the Rotary bursary (shown above), which includes a $250 prize. The BHS Show Choir won the McDonald's Bursary ($250 prize).
The BHS Drama group will be presenting 2 awesome plays in 1 night! If you missed it during Dinner Theatre in December, here is your chance to see "Fast Food Shakespeare" in a different setting! Also, BHS's own Lauren Tulloch presents her directing debut with her self-written play called "Timeless." Join us in the Gwendolyn Kent Auditorium of BHS on Tuesday May 10 at 6:30pm to catch both plays in one night. Admission is by donation at the door to help offset DramaFest costs for these students who will be travelling to Fredericton at the end of the week.
Bathurst High School Coop student Jeff Christie organized a mayoral debate in the Gwendolyn Kent Auditorium last Tuesday evening. The debate was moderated by Principal George Daley. Community members running for mayor and council were on hand to answer some tough questions. Thank you to all who attended.
BHS and ESN took part in another great Bay Breakfast. We would like to thank all of the participating restaurants and all those who came out to support us. Hope to see you again next year. Check out our gallery... http://bathursthigh.nbed.nb.ca/gallery/bay-breakfast
Students from BHS and ESN were hard at work sweeping St. Peter Avenue Tuesday. The event is part of a team building exercise between the two schools in preparation for the Annual Bay Breakfast where groups from each school work together to serve breakfast at various restaurants in and around Bathurst. The initiative raises money for both schools to be used for student activities. We would like to thank the following establishments for their continued support of this event:
This past weekend was another huge success for Bathurst High School's Music Department. The Gwendolyne Kent Auditorium was packed for four performances of Broadway hit musical The Little Mermaid. A big thank you goes out to all who worked tirelessly to bring the show to life and to the many others that played a part in its success. We couldn't do it without your support.
The annual Bay Breakfast will be taking place Friday, April 29th this year. This event raises money to fund programs at both BHS and ESN and has been a part of the community for over 25 years. Tickets are in sale now! Make sure to get yours when they do. Thank you for your continued support!
