Dear Alumnae & Friends of Balmoral Hall School,
It’s been a challenging time for all of us — and yet, despite being limited in our ability to travel or gather, we have found creative ways to stay connected and keep in touch with each other. We have seen an increase in activity from our alumnae community across the generations as we all have sought to maintain and strengthen our ties to one another, to the next generation of BH girls, and to our roots. You have participated virtually in classrooms as guest speakers and mentors, attended last year’s virtual Home for the Holidays event, donated to our new building, Benidickson Centre for Arts & Design, and bid on items during our online auction fundraiser for Balmoral Hall School Foundation.
The Alumnae Association is your “portal” (yes, pun intended — I’ll keep my day job) back into the lively halls of BH, providing you with opportunities to stay connected to the school, to give back, and to expand your personal and professional networks.
Through our Association, I have had the opportunity to speak at Remembrance Day assemblies, judge debating tournaments, attend musicals, celebrate faculty retirements, give charitably to parts of the school I am passionate about, and become a member of the Board of Governors. I have stayed in touch with my own classmates, and I have expanded that circle to other incredible graduates who I might not have met otherwise. The opportunities for involvement are endless and easily facilitated online if you no longer live in Winnipeg.
I encourage you to participate in whatever way is most meaningful to you. We are always open to new ideas and initiatives, so please reach out to the Alumnae Relations team. Let’s stay connected!
