New Hope Bikes

The New Hope Community Bikes program launched at BPDS in October. The program is a chance for students to learn safe biking, how to look after a bike, and basic skills needed for cycling, all  while on BPDS property.

The program was made possible in part by Community Services OPP Representative, Constable Adam Belanger, and the Peninsula Adventure Sports Association (PASA) who was directly involved with getting the project off the ground.

BPDS Boys Soccer

Submitted by Ms. Sweatman, Coach 

On October 24, the BPDS boys had an awesome day of soccer at Sauble school!

We beat Sauble in our first game with goals by Hunter Rankin and James Wheeler. We lost our second game against Hepworth but played really well! We had a tie against Wiarton, 1-1 with our goal scored by Hunter Rankin on a penalty shot. This tie took us to the championship match where we faced Hepworth once again! Hepworth played a very strong game, beating us in the final.

Overall, BPDS had an excellent day! Special thanks to our very hard-working goalie, Jesse Robbins, to our team captain, Reagan Taylor, and to all our grade 8s for their great leadership! Go Panthers!
