A home away from home

Jan. 24, 2018 | As he does most years, the incomparable Mr. Maxwell shared his colourful presentation on Robbie Burns.

The Scottish poet's love of his homeland is well-documented throughout his writing and he moved around a great deal. In a school that includes international students and boarders, BCS is a place where many members at times miss their homeland. Luckily, our strong sense of community helps to provide a "home away from home" and Mr. Maxwell ended his speech with a moment of silence to think about our loved ones who may be far away.
