Cultural Connections

BCCA Cultural Connections

Because we’re not just a school, we’re a community! 

Whether you are from Canada or from China, English is your first language or not, each person represents a culture that is worth knowing and celebrating in our school community!  All BCCA Families are encouraged to attend our CULTURAL CONNECTIONS Kick Off this coming Thursday, September 27th at 7 pm, BCCA Gym at the Fernwood Campus.

Research shows that family involvement in their child’s learning has a profound effect and positive impact on their children’s success in school.  This is true for families of all cultures and ethnic backgrounds.  Each year, we grow more culturally and ethnically diverse and while we are thankful for this growth, cultural and language barriers do exist that sometimes make communication quite challenging.  As we strive to continue building and strengthening our BCCA Community, it is my pleasure to introduce to our new school program called the CULTURAL CONNECTIONS with the purpose of

  • Creating a warm environment for all families,
  • Building cultural groups and discovering community liaisons,
  • Fostering  more effective communication by offering translation services to non-English speaking families,
  • Providing better access to school services and resource materials; and
  • Communicating our school mission and development goals over the next 3-5 years and identify the role families play in helping us meet them.

Furthermore, it is our hope that our Cultural Connections program will be an avenue for our current or returning families to support, mentor or come alongside the new BCCA families as they make a smooth transition into our BCCA community!

Help build and strengthen a “culture of giving” to our school by making time to attend this event!

Childcare and light snacks are provided.  Please register at  https://bccaculturalconnections.eventbrite.ca

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening!  Please do not hesitate to send any of your questions or concerns to marketing@bcchristianacademy.ca.
