"A night to remember," remarked an attendee at the inaugural Fall Family Dinner hosted by Balmoral Hall Parent Association last Saturday night.
Lights and shimmer created the ambiance for a wonderful dinner catered by 295 York as families mingled throughout dinner.
Truly, the highlight of the evening was a performance from talented BH girls (dancers and artists alike) who took centre stage with confidence, poise, and grace; at the end of the night, student artwork was raffled off to several lucky winners.
On Tuesday, Hilary Potts from Ivey Business School and Eric Jensen, Ivey alumnus and the parent of a BH girl, delivered a presentation about the incredible experience of studying at University of Western Ontario.
On October 29, junior debaters participated in their first tournament. Debating the resolution: "This House Would Continue our Use of Resources for Space Exploration," we were able to consider the benefits, harms, and costs of this resolution. This event was not only the first tournament of the year, but the first tournament for Grade 7s and the first open tournament for most of the Grade 8s.
It's a Team Canada phenom inspiring those who share her beginnings. It's an alumna enthusiastically cheering on her former teammates. It's Blazers prep hockey, and it's been the heart and soul of Balmoral Hall School athletics for 10 years.
Hockey is a spectator sport, and Canadians embrace this like no others. Face paint, commemorative jerseys, brightly coloured signs, homemade noisemakers, and a chant or two, these are the hallmarks of supportive fans from coast to coast to coast. A gleaming ice surface is of no use in an empty arena, after all.
