Over The Edge

Our Students are Pushing us Over the Edge! 


Rope for Hope is a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish foundation. It involves participants raising a minimum of $1500 each in support of sick children in Nova Scotia. In return, the participants who meet their fundraising goals are treated to the heart-racing experience of rappelling from the roof of 26-storey Loyola Residence at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax.

This year, the Alternate Program at Park View is getting involved. We are working toward sending five people over the edge in June: Co-teachers Katie Wheatley and Karla Gregory, Department Head Sarah MacNeil and Community Health Worker Rebecca Guest. Our hope is to have all of the students in the program come to Halifax with us on June 6th to see us go over the edge!

Also, we will be holding a pancake breakfast at the Local Public House on May 3 from 9am to 11am. The cost of each ticket is $10, and after paying for costs, the sale of 150 tickets would help us to raise just over $1000! Please consider attending!


Grad Rings, Grad Photos and Grad Gowns!

Jostens will be back with Grad Ring information on Wednesday Apr. 16 at noon!

Any students or parent who have questions about Grad Photos taken at the school or who wish to place an order can email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Grad Fees are $60 and payable in the main office (see Mrs. Foote).  Gowns need to be ordered soon - so make sure you come in and arrange your fees and provide your height!


Online Safety Presentation for Parents

Computers, iPads, smart phones and other devices certainly have a lot of benefits, but there are risks too.  We need to teach our children how to be responsible digital citizens in an age where technology is accessible 24/7.  Join Cst. Jennifer mason (School Safety Resource Officer) and Julie Ramey (BJSHS School Counsellor) for a discussion of topics including the current online landscape, cyberbullying and safety tips for parents and students.

Tuesday, May 6, 7 pm at BHS.
