... that Bessborough offers over 15 clubs and over 20 sports teams that run during
morning, lunch, recess or after school?
To run these clubs teachers provide their extra time to provide enriching activities. Parents volunteers also contribute their time and resources to support and collaborate with teachers.
To run these sports teams, teachers volunteer to coach and run practices. Supply teacher costs are made to release teachers every time there is an event outside of school. Parent volunteers also offer their coaching expertise, time to assist and drive students to their games and tournaments.
Thank you teachers and parent volunteers for helping provide these great opportunities.
Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast:

ECO Club's Cyclecolour Program:
This year, the Eco Club set a goal to reduce the amount of landfill we generate as a school. A few months ago, the students started an initiative to recycle all dried up markers. Crayola will pick up all brands of dried up felt markers free of charge and recycle the materials for other products. So far, our school has recycled over 1,000 markers!
Way to go Bessborough!
