What happened to my Old School?
For some of us, who have not been able to visit the school in decades, the sudden realization of growth and development of our ‘Old School’ has been overwhelming - I speak from experience. Just a few days ago, I learned that the old Boarding House was demolished and the New Stafford Block has been erected in its place. I saw photos of all the other new buildings.... and suddenly I found myself struggling to comprehend the concrete facts of rapid change - their new massive implications versus the innocence of our small, cherished school in the midst of a lovely and lively community that gave our teenage years a playful ambiance.After a long preoccupation with the daily fulfillments of our lives, many of us OCs have been able to reconnect - aided by Facebook - and are staying in touch as OGAs through “cottongirls” at yahoogroups. Please join us -- the more the merrier! Several former students of BCGS have had the opportunity to visit the old school and have shared their photos with us. You will find them in a section called ‘School Campus’ - which also lists some of the other changes. We welcome any contributions to this site!
