BNHS alumni are bound to pass through a real life journey after completing high school.  Some chose to travel the narrow road but less taken while others pass through a wide thoroughfare where most people pondered upon.  But none really knows where those roads will lead or whatever end it brings. 

What is certain though is that all of us will definitely learn to discover our own strengths and weaknesses as we traverse the road we’ve chosen.  Then learn to realize that life is not at all— a bed of roses. 

Twenty five years after the establishment of our school, some have already travelled far while others may have yet to start their own life’s journey. And whatever life has introduced you into, I am pretty sure that it is all worth to share. 

After getting in touch with different alumni population in facebook and having learned some of their professions and occupations, I am so privileged to see some of them thriving.    Few even shared brief account of their admirable journey.  

Maybe one day we’ll share some of their commendable life journey here in our blog site.  It’s a good topic to induce so others can emulate or at least learn something from their stories. 

But wait… what is important to note is that whatever profession or occupation each alumna/ alumnus had chosen,we should not discount the fact that all professions (whatever it is), have had essential bearing in the community we live in and contributions that each will impart to that certain community are surely indispensable.
