The BHS Music Memories is a group of students who came together after hearing about a study of how music awakens seniors with Alzheimer's. Music Memories has approximately 28 keen students who visit with seniors in local senior residences. During these visits the students learn valuable information regarding the senior's pastimes, hobbies and particular musical interests. From there, the students research and upload MP3 players with specific music and loan them to the residents for their listening pleasure.
BHS will honour our veterans once again with a Remembrance Day ceremony held on November, 10th in the Gwendolyne Kent Auditorium. Many veterans will be on hand for the ceremony and a luncheon held afterwards.
On November 4th Mr. Robichaud's Environmental Science class traveled to cemeteries in East Bathurst. There they placed Canadian flags to honour those veterans who fought for our country. Chelsea Savoie and Megan Chamberlain are pictured above at the final resting place of Winston Knowles, A WWII veteran.
Barry Riordon and Lea Sisk, members of the BHS student council, headed with their carts full to the Bathurst Volunteer Centre today. Students who attended last night's Halloween dance brought in over 200 non-perishable food items as part of their entrance fee.

Members of the BHS staff took on the Girls Softball team on Monday night on the home field. The team came out victorious in the 6-3 final. Highlights from the game included an incredible play by POA in which she gracefully dove for the ball, rolled out and made the throw to first for the out. Also, a great double play from Danielle Daigle and Madison Jenkins. It should also be mentioned that Sandra Fournier stole home base.:)
