Upperclassmen Give Grand Welcome to Class of 2021
Posted on 09/16/2017
On Friday September 15, 2017, the BGA Class of 2021 eagerly filled the halls for BGA’s annual “We Ahr Bishop Ahr” Day, better known as WABA Day.

After the opening prayer, led by Junior Martin Vavrak, the “We Ahr Bishop Ahr Cheer” began the activities of the day! This rousing cheer was led by senior Jude Roche, who was a great second for Moses as he parted the freshmen sitting on the floor.

The freshmen were guided by the upperclassmen in numerous team-building and spirit-filled activities. The program included helpful icebreakers and activities led by sophomores, juniors, and seniors in small groups. The highly competitive alphabet game was played by everyone in the gym and the last team standing was Mr. John Tocci’s homeroom 9.7.

Afterwards, a scavenger hunt using QR codes helped the Class of 2021 find out about the BGA building and its people. Freshmen and upperclassmen raced through the building to finish the scavenger hunt first! These activities were done to unite the class of 2021 with the BGA community.

Also included was a memorable skit presented by the Student Council and Class Officers to showcase BGA's various clubs and activities. The Little Theatre was rocking with the music of Mr. Joseph Cullinan, music director, and members of the BGA band and chorus. With the singing of “Big House,” “Trading Our Sorrows,” “Living on a Prayer,” and the new hit “A Rightful Place,” the BGA spirit was alive and moving in the Little Theatre!

Chants of “We Are Bishop Ahr” were heard loud and clear throughout the halls of BGA! It was a great day filled with great spirit and great community! The day ended with a heartfelt cheer performed by the Bishop Ahr faculty and staff.
