  • Mrs. Kellie Damphousse, Parent Association President, and Dr. Michelle Warren (November 2018)


    By Maria Mathwig, Guidance Counsellor

    I would like to personally thank Balmoral Hall Parent Association (BHPA) for the wonderful presentation they organized for our school community on the topic of anxiety and children with Dr. Michelle Warren on November 1, 2018. As the new guidance counsellor this year at Balmoral Hall, I have a specific interest in mental health advocacy and promotional mental health programming. I believe equipping students with the skills they require in order to navigate life stressors with resiliency is one of our most important goals as educators.

    Dr. Warren normalized anxiety as something that we all deal with from time to time, highlighting that an anxiety disorder is when the anxiety starts to represent a repeated pattern that gets in the way of follow through with our normal activities.

    Some key points for supporting children and youth with anxiety shared in Dr. Warren’s presentation were as follows.
    • Ensuring that accurate information is provided to the people who interact with students the most (parents and teachers).
    • Equipping parents with parenting strategies that promote normal development and build independence (limiting reinforcement of avoidance).
    • Using mindfulness (awareness of the present moment and of our thought patterns) and centring practices.
    • Seeking out support using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) strategies.

  • Girls for the Cure 2018


    By Jennifer Pawluk, Communications Specialist

    In 2001, BH girls joined hands and hearts for the inaugural Girls for the Cure, many walking in memory of friends and family, with funds raised directed to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation in support of breast cancer research, treatment, and patient care. Since then, the Balmoral Hall School community has raised more than $410,000 for women's cancer over the course of 18 walks. On October 30, 2018, at the 27th Annual Guardian Angel Benefit for Women's Cancer, Head of School Joanne Kamins accepted the Great-West Life Award of Distinction on behalf of all Girls for the Cure participants.

    "Without your participation, generosity, and encouragement over the past 18 years, we would not be receiving this wonderful recognition," she said.

    The following statement was included in the gala program:

    "CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the Guardian Angels value our long-time relationship with the students and staff at Balmoral Hall School, and we congratulate you on your outstanding achievement."
