BCHS opened its doors in the early 1970's as a school jointly run by the Public and Catholic School Districts. The original school colors were purple and silver and the teams were known as the Roadrunners right from the outset. The Roadrunner (of Bugs Bunny and the Roadrunner fame), was a popular cartoon character of the day and the name has remained throughout the 30+ years of the school's existence. Over time, the school's colors evolved until they became what they are today - burgundy and silver/grey with white or black accents and backgrounds.
As far as population goes, BCHS has, at various times, grown larger or smaller, depending on the demographics of the community. It has reached beyond 500 students at times and currently has a population of approximately 400 students in Grades 9 through 12.
BCHS has a proud past and celebrates many talented people who have graced it's halls for their years of schooling. These include people like singer, Irene Bartok, playwright, Lyle Victor Albert, dancer, Charlie Wilson, musician and singers like Clayton Bellamy, Brett Kissel, and Derek Mazurek, CBC producer Megan Perry, and a host of other people whose talents are spread across North America in the form of writers, city planners, doctors, dentists, engineers, teachers, pilots and hundreds of other occupations. Keep tuned, we will be adding biographies and success stories to this website!
