The New Chevron is the student newspaper for Benedictine and is produced by its bright Honors Journalism students, working with Mr. Forster. New Chevron has a variety of topics to read about. Anywhere from academics to athletics to religion the New Chevron has it all. It gives students and teachers information on what important things are taking place around the school that some might not know about.
BSoR holds an annual Talent Show, where students can display their various talents and quirks. In the past, Benedictine would hold the talent show, and Saint Gertrudes would come to the Benedictine campus to have their students co-performing with Benedictine students.
At Benedictine College Prep, despite the setbacks with COVID-19, the JV and varsity basketball teams were still able to get their season in. In this strange time the basketball teams at Benedictine have almost all their games and will finish the season with the Varsity Teams last game being on February 23 at Catholic High School in Virginia Beach.
On March 6, the Benedictine Cadets football team will host St John Paul The Great. Benedictine has been itching to get on the field and play a football game, and now that itch can be scratched.
As mid-February approaches, The Benedictine wrestling team's season comes to an impromptu close. In a usual year, The VISAA state tournament would be fast approaching, and Prep Nationals would be soon to follow, usually the next week. This year, the state tournament was cancelled due to COVID precautions and Prep Nationals were moved back to April 30-May 1, 2021.
On January 26, Benedictine started its third quarter of the school year. It has been a different year with the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Cadets have been putting in the work, staying diligent and studying.
Benedictine recently changed from military demerits to a detention system. Before, when a student got a demerit from the classroom or formation, he would have to walk penalty tours. The detention system, however, made classroom demerits result in detentions.
BCP had an away game against Atlantic Shores Christian School. The game was scheduled to take place in Virginia Beach on Saturday, February 11th at 2:00 p.m., but was postponed due to weather concerns. It has yet to be rescheduled. If it is, this will mark the varsity's 10th game of this season, with their record currently standing at 5-4.
On Friday, February 5, Benedictine Schools of Richmond celebrated its annual day of Giving to commemorate Servant of God Frank Parater's generous nature and his commitment to Catholicism. The donations raised throughout the day by 1,208 alumni, family and friends of the Benedictine community funded $718,648 for the Benedictine and St. Gertrude scholarships given to students annually.
Every quarter at Benedictine, like many other schools, there is an acknowledgement of all the students who made the Honor Roll for that quarter. But at Benedictine there's a twist: Cadets who obtain Honor Roll for the quarter get awarded with pizza at lunch for a day.
