BMT began in September 1985, with Principal George Iantorno; Vice Principal Andy Fedak; secretary Sue Niven-Smith, ten staff (5 male, 5 female), and approximately 150 grade 9 students. The school opened as a "portable" located on Invergordon Avenue, close to the then newly opened Elizabeth Seton Elementary School. It was decided that the school colours be somewhat based on the habit that Mother Teresa wore. Officially, the colours are royal blue or dark blue, with gold or yellow accents. The first uniforms included grey flannel pants, white dress shirt, school tie and navy blazer for boys. The girls wore a plaid kilt, white blouse and navy blazer. The name Titans was decided in a contest by the student body.
The school was originally to be named after Mary Ward, but it was not staff who initiated the change. During a pre-school meeting launch with parents, students and administration, a student suggested the name Mother Teresa instead. Support for the change was unanimous and as the saying goes, the rest is history.
