We offer many opportunities to volunteer in our community and we do require a police check. Forms can be requested from the office and must be completed in order to participate in any activity that involves the students. The following list represents some of these opportunities.
This program involves working one on one with kindergarten and Grade 1 students and targets literacy skills. A ten week commitment is expected and training is provided in advance.
Our school participates in a number of tournaments and we train teams for cross country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, hockey, ball hockey and track and field. Presently, we have a junior team, consisting of grade 5 & 6 students and a senior team made up of grade 7 & 8 students in some of the sports.
We welcome our members to share their expertise, as a coach in any of these areas. Also on some of our tournament days, we need people to help in a variety of ways from score keepers to marshalls on our cross country course.
We have a library at BCS that emphasizes the importance and joy of learning through reading. Volunteers help by signing out books for the students as well as keeping the shelves organized and recommending new books.
Every November, we invite our grandfriends to BCS to share in a day with the younger generation. Volunteers are needed to help with refreshments and clean up.
A number of organizations host their annual appreciation dinners in our gym. We also host different events that involve a meal or refreshments. Volunteers help prepare and serve the food. These opportunities offer times of fellowship and strengthen community.
At BCS, a Board of Directors is the governing body who volunteer their time and skill to make decisions and delegate responsibilities. Committees or Project Teams may also require volunteers from time to time.
Teachers may request volunteers to help with specific events, such as a chaperone on a class trip, or helping with a project in a number of ways.
