  • Junior School STEAM Festival 2019

    STEAM FEST SPARKS CREATIVE THINKING

    By Jennifer Pawluk, Communications Specialist

    "All-girls learning environments champion the educational needs of girls as a group currently underrepresented in STEM majors and careers," reports National Coalition of Girls' Schools. Through the arts, students at Balmoral Hall School develop a lifelong love of learning built upon curiosity, creativity, resiliency, and innovation. Such was the experience of Kindergarten to Grade 5 students at a recent exposition of inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking: The STEAM Festival.

    Featuring a variety of stations from hands-on experiments to expert demonstrations, the event has become an annual tradition in Junior School. With the theme, "Rock The World," the 2019 festival highlighted earth science and geology. Thank you to the staff, students, parents, alumnae, and friends who volunteered their time and expertise on a sunny afternoon, June 14. Without support from our school community year after year, this spectacular event would not be possible. The Centre for Arts & Design has been built thanks to that support, as well.

    We simply can't express how excited we are to open the doors this fall!

    Students' passion for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) will bring this inspiring new facility to life in ways we have yet to imagine.

    Until then, have a wonderful summer break!

  • Student conducted a waste audit in January 2019.

    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!
