NISI DOMINUS FRUSTRA
Without God, all is in vain.

 

BBGS
We pledge to thee,
Our love and toil in the years to be,
When we are grown and take our place,
As loyal women with our race.

Father in heaven, who lovest all,
O help Thy children when they call,
That they may build from age to age,
An undefiled heritage.

Teach us to bear the yoke in youth,
With steadfastness and careful truth,
That in our time, Thy grace may give,
The truth whereby the nations live.

Teach us delight in simple things,
And mirth that has no bitter springs,
Forgiveness free of evil done,
And love to all men 'neath the sun.

BBGS
We pledge to thee,
Our love and toil in the years to be,
When we are grown and take our place,
As loyal women with our race.

School Badge
The story of the school badge goes back to the years before 1950. A badge design competition was held and the one that is worn today was chosen. The two hills with the star overhead are a constant reminder to us that we must climb the bukit (hill) to reach the bintang (star).

School Motto
The school motto, engraved not just on the school badge, but in the heart of every BBGS student.  It was in 1947 when Miss Glasgow, who was headmistress then, and Miss Cooke, a teacher felt that the school should have a motto. Their combined efforts saw the birth of the BBGS motto, Nisi Dominus Frustra, which in Latin means "Without God All is in Vain".


 

... and this is where I waited for the Bus Sekolah ...


Above these corridors were the dreaded Home Science rooms, where we sewed the funniest of garments, and learnt things like box pleats, double stiched half inch seams and how to hem delicate silk skirts.

Chemistry Lab - Where Gazel, Sit and Siew Mei were very busy mixing all the chemicals in the back row because we could not stop laughing at the relief teacher - Mr SUU-GA
