Principal's Message

September is a Busy Time at Balmoral

Dear Balmoral families,
September is both an exciting and busy time at Balmoral School as we focus on the start of the new school year. I just wanted to take a moment to touch base and let you know that we are looking forward to a great year of learning with our students.  We are excited to welcome our new Grade 5 students and those returning students joining us in Grades 6-9. We also welcome our Hub returning students and transfers from other schools/jurisdictions.
I can ensure that the staff at Balmoral are working with the CBE protocols and the AHS protocols to the best of our ability to make Balmoral a safe place.  We appreciate the patience and understanding of our families as we continue to flex with the times. At this time, we are required to keep students in their cohorts indoors, with mandatory masking and increased sanitization. Outdoors, students are free to interact with their friends from other classes with recommended physical distancing.
This year, teachers will be offering a modified version of our co-curricular and extra-curricular based activities and clubs, from athletics to a variety of other clubs. These activities will happen but may be modified slightly due to current COVID-19 restrictions. Whether students are new to Balmoral or are returning from last year, I encourage all students to get involved in their school community and become involved in as many activities as possible. Students, we challenge you this year to make new friends, help others whenever possible and enjoy learning with your fellow students in as many ways as you can.
If you have not had an opportunity to purchase uniforms, please do so at your earliest opportunity to avoid delays and ensure students have the required attire for TLC. We hope by then students will have the required attire for TLC, which includes an all black pair of runners or dress shoes. This year our TLC students may also wear a Balmoral hoodie over top their uniform if they wish to wear a hoodie during the colder months of the school year.
We will be communicating regularly with families through SchoolMessenger.  Please ensure that your email and MyCBE/PowerSchool account are up-to-date and ensure that you have subscribed to SchoolMessenger. 
Mr. Guenther and I are looking forward to an amazing school year watching your children grow academically and socially. As always if you have any questions please feel free to contact the main office and one of us will be happy to get back to you as soon as we are available.
We look forward to working with students and their families for the 2021-22 school year.
Warm regards, Rakhee Vijairaghavan, Acting Principal
