  • BUILDING BOLD

    The school community gathered in Sifton Family Theatre on November 14, 2018 as presentations were delivered by Ms Nancy Cipryk '86 and Mr. Jim Perchaluk (pictured) at a joint annual general meeting hosted by Balmoral Hall School's Board of Governors and Balmoral Hall School's Foundation.

    "What an exciting time to be at Balmoral Hall School," said Ms Cipryk. "At this time last year, we shared our new strategic vision with ambitious goals to become a globally recognized and trusted brand, build an unlimited learning community, and create a culture of philanthropy and financial sustainability. That strategic vision has allowed us to see ourselves like never before."

    The 2017-2018 Annual Review is available online.

  • International Independent Schools Public Speaking Competition at St. Clements School in Toronto

    STUDENTS SPEAK UP IN DEBATE

    By Carissa (Nikkel) Balcaen '02, Debate & Public Speaking Teacher

    Debate at Balmoral Hall School is a competitive team sport. In fact, our debate community continues to grow each day. Our debate prefects, Barrett and Megan, began the year by introducing a new club called TableTalk. TableTalk provides students with opportunities to express and modify their ideas on current issues such as the potential of opening Portage & Main, the benefits versus the harms of surveillance cameras, and police carding. Barrett, with support from senior debater Lindsay, leads another speaking opportunity for students learning English as an additional language to practice their communication skills during Language Learners on Wednesday mornings. Finally, there are the students who battle with words in challenging competitions and are constantly preparing for the next tournament.

    Our junior and senior competitive teams meet multiple times each week to develop their understanding of precedence, analyze the rationale for the decisions that our government leaders make, and question the advantages and disadvantages of implementing new resolutions in our current evolving society. The junior team members are especially eager to work with their senior team mentors, Lauren, Lindsay, and Irina. We are a debate family, and together the team laughs and learns during early morning meetings, working lunch-hours, and evening verbal "jam sessions."

    Taking risks is something that debaters do consistently, and our students have established themselves as strong competitors at several tournaments since September. We encourage you to join us at our future tournaments as a competitor, speaker, timer, observer, or judge, including the Rupert’s Land Debate & Public Speaking Tournament on December 9, 2018. (Register here as a judge.) Join the debate team, and bring the power of argumentation, refutation, and consideration of opposing viewpoints into your everyday life.

  • WHY WE GIVE: JOANNE & ROD KAMINS

    It’s important to us that we support what we believe in.

    As a family that believes a balanced education is the foundation for a better future locally and beyond, we choose to support current and future BH girls in their varied areas of interest. Students will benefit from the learning opportunities to be offered in the Centre for Arts & Design.

    The thought that our gift will help students explore their interests in this ever-changing, fast-paced era of innovation is what compels us to give.

    By supporting the campaign, we hope to enable them to strive for and achieve success throughout their academic journey.

    It’s our way of giving back to the school community that gives us such joy.



    Thank you to Head of School Joanne Kamins and husband Rod for their generous support of the Full STEAM Ahead campaign. Balmoral Hall School is pleased to offer a naming opportunity of a space in our new centre in recognition of their leadership gift.
