Girls' Night In
This is an event we plan for either a day-long retreat or an after school evening where the sisters can get together to participate in an activity which we do not have the time for during a regular weekly meeting. Last year, a day-long retreat was conducted at the BCSD district office. Half of the day was spent doing "get to know you" activities. During our afternoon, four speakers were present. Ms. Megan Whalen, from the Crime Victims Department, spent time talking with the young ladies about relationships, dress, attitude and many other subjects. Then Mr. Eudes Clarke, Mr. Andre and Mr. Glen McIver spoke about many of the same topics from a man's perspective.
In the past, Mr. Paul Harger, a pastry chef, came to BHS to teach the girls how to make truffles, turtles, bark, smores and a concoction out of the left-over ingredients. They also learned the correct way to eat a truffle to enjoy the taste and bring out the flavors of the treat. Each girl was able to take at least one sample of each treat home with them. This is a fun evening of learning and conversations - as well as enjoying the pastries and ice cream sundaes which were also made to go with the candies.
