Happy 4th Birthday Back2BBGS!

WOW...we're 4 today!!

I started this blog back in 2007, with the first post being lyrics of our beloved school song, and am so grateful to still be here today sharing this celebration post with you.

Writing and maintaining this blog has been a labour of love from Day One. From a young age, I have always been attracted to the power of the written word and secretly nursed a desire to become a writer to change the world. This humble blog has proven just how powerful and evocative words can be in galvanizing people to action. Some examples that spring to mind include:-

And the one thing that has given me the most satisfaction is the honour of connecting with BBGSians from all ages and walks of life. I can't begin to describe the thrill that runs up my spine every time I receive an email that begins with, "Dear Joanna, I attended BBGS from 19..."!

So I want to take this opportunity to thank ALL of you for making this possible. Thank you for your generosity in sharing your stories, memories and friendships with me. I have had a wonderful time crafting this treasure chest for BBGSians and will cherish your continued support and love for all the things we hold dear.

In closing, I'd like to leave you with the words of our beloved Miss Cooke:-

"Girls of BBGS - you have a rich heritage. I challenge you to live a wholesome, vibrant life totally committed to giving nothing less than your best while always remembering our school motto - Nisi Dominus Frustra. Without God all is in vain."
