  • International Independent Schools Public Speaking Competition, November 2019


    Carissa (Nikkel) Balcaen '02, Faculty

    After seven weeks of incredibly hard work on the part of Lindsay C., Carrington D., and Irina Z., the results are in following the lengthy and extremely challenging International Independent Schools Public Speaking Competition (IISPSC) held in Boston, Mass. from October 31 to November 3, 2019.

    The trip included a significant amount of stressful competition, as well as many opportunities for learning and networking along the way.

    We explored art and history at the Museum of Fine Arts, visited the MIT Museum housing the original robots that continue to inspire others in the field of robotics today, viewed an art installation called "The Polaroid Project" at MIT, stood at the site of the Boston Massacre (March 5, 1770), received a history lesson at the church used for the meeting just prior to the Boston Tea Party public burning of all the tea in port, toured Harvard University, and even took in a Boston Bruins game.

    Congratulations to the Balmoral Hall team, placing 9th overall! Carrington received the Phil Hansen Award for the competitor who best embodied the spirit of the tournament. Lindsay was recognized as the 3rd-place individual speaker in the tournament and has been chosen to represent Canada at the World Individual Debate & Public Speaking Championships in Shanghai a few months from now.

    Congratulations, girls, and well done!

    I have a deep connection with independent schools, having had the experience of attending an independent boarding school from grades 10 to 12. Living in boarding was an amazing part of my personal development, allowing me to develop independence and a great love for independent schools.

    When MCI, an independent religious school in rural Manitoba, sought boarding staff, I had the opportunity to support students in a boarding setting as they pursued their educational goals. After three years, I accepted the role of recruitment director, working together with community stakeholders to build the profile and possibilities of the school. A move to Winnipeg would be the catalyst that set me on my current path as I developed skills and gained experience in administration as a collaborative manager.

    After five years supporting the CEO and board chair of a mid-sized Canadian construction company, I was promoted to manage the administrative team. I developed a deep understanding of the importance of being a supportive manager, working with my team to accomplish individual and team goals. I enthusiastically advocated for and promoted administrators within and out of the administrative ranks. Completing my studies in communications, I took on the role of internal communications on behalf of the CEO and board and worked to develop social media and crisis communications planning.

    My biggest motivators are building collaborative teams, streamlining processes that support organizational goals, and communicating change. In 2017, while working for a local design-build company, I began to feel a calling to move back towards my roots. I began to wonder, “Would I still love helping families make the important decision of attending an independent school?”

    Well, as I discovered in my first weeks at Balmoral Hall in August 2017, yes, I would. A great decision for me personally and professionally, I linked all of my skills and loves into one role: Associate Director of Admissions. Whether through celebrating and promoting administrators in the construction industry or supporting the team at Balmoral Hall, I have been and continue to be a proud and passionate advocate of young women. The importance of all-girls education has never been greater as we continue to advocate for equality to level the playing field in education and career advancement. It is my great honour to work with a team that believes in the advantage of girls' schools in fostering academic engagement, self-confidence, and community involvement with a broad world view.
