  • BH Blazers visit Ruby, August 2019

    A FIRST-HAND LESSON IN CARING

    By Jennifer Pawluk, Communications Specialist

    It is a rare and special occasion for female student-athletes to meet a trailblazing woman who broke barriers in her sport.

    A rarer still and even more special occasion is for the age difference between those generations to span 90 years.

    Last week, the Balmoral Hall Blazers took a break from pre-season training to visit a local long-term care centre. There, they met Ruby, who played on the first women's hockey team in Winnipeg in 1930. At age 107, Ruby has many stories to tell about what it was like to be a goaltender so long ago, with catalogues in place of padding. She recalled some of the challenges she faced on and off the ice. With laughter and a few tears, the girls expressed genuine admiration and respect. It was a deeply moving experience for all, shared Sarah Zacharias '08, Director of Hockey at Balmoral Hall School.

    Our mission is inspiring the imagination and courage to excel, to reach, to lead, to care.

    "While their academic and athletic abilities are evidence of how these student-athletes are excelling, reaching, and leading, moments like this one indicate their ability to care," says Head of School Joanne Kamins.

    "How proud am I to lead a school where girls have the opportunity to bring joy to an elder with true compassion and kinship."

    WHY WE COMPOST

    By Genevieve Cloutier '03, Alumnae Relations Coordinator

    About a year ago, I visited Green Action Centre with a group of Youth in Philanthropy students as one of our site visits to explore nonprofit organizations in Winnipeg to which they could direct a grant funded by The Winnipeg Foundation. It was at this meeting that we learned of Compost Winnipeg, which provides residential and commercial composting, and we immediately wanted to implement a program at Balmoral Hall School. And so, the planning began.

    Fast forward a year, and here we are almost a month into our schoolwide composting initiative. Along the way, Ms Caitlin Briggs, Senior School biology teacher and Green Club faculty advisor, joined us to lend her expertise to the project. With the help of fellow colleagues and incredibly passionate students, along with commercial compost expert and Junior School parent Dave Pancoe, a sustainable, full-scale composting program has been embraced by our school community.

    It has been my great pleasure to see adults and children alike making conscious choices to separate their waste into compost, recycling, and garbage. To see faculty bringing their own compost buckets into their classrooms and making the trip to one of our waste stations at the end of each day to do their part. To see students in the dining hall helping each other decide where their lunch waste should be disposed of and encouraging each other to take what they will eat and not waste food. I am very happy to see how much things have changed in just a few weeks!
