Principal's Message


Dear Balmoral families and community members,
We are nearing the end of another wonderful school year with our students and families. Through the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, significant absentee rates, and changes in leadership, we are emerging stronger than before. We are a dynamic middle school that strives to be an academically excellent, developmental responsive and highly inclusive community. We have a dedicated staff of teachers and support staff who work to accomplish this each day. As with our colleagues around the Calgary Board of Education, our goal is to provide the best possible environment for all students to develop academically, personally, in citizenship and their own character - key results identified by our Board of Trustees. We thank our families for their continued support of our students as we work together to offer the best educational programming possible at Balmoral School.
As a professional staff, our teachers work hard individually and collectively to remain current in educational research and practice. As middle school educators, we also understand and respond to the unique characteristics of middle school students. We meet in small and large groups regularly for professional development and learning, and to actively support one another in reaching our goal of meeting the needs of all learners.
The past few months have included great learning opportunities for our students, including:
Math contests (ongoing)
Calgary Youth Science Fair
Band clinics at Mount Royal University and with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra
Field trips to Ralph Klein Park, the Calgary Zoo, Calgary Youth Police Interpretive Centre, Escape Rooms, and more
Walking field trips around the Balmoral community
Cultural celebrations such as Lunar New Year and Eid We have more events and in-person opportunities planned for May and June this year, including:
Parent/family shopping at our book fair on Wednesday, May 18 from 4-6pm
Celebrations of Learning on May 25 (Grades 7/8/9) and May 26 (Grades 5/6)
Grade 9 Farewell Ceremony on June 27 We look forward to welcoming our community back into our school within the next few months!If you have any questions, please contact us here at the school. We'd be happy to speak with you.Regards,Rakhee VijairaghavanActing Principal, Balmoral School

RT @SASCBE: Our Grade 3/4s had a hands on experience building birds houses after learning about the importance of birds in Calgary. Birds are often seen as spiritual messengers who bridge the natural and spirit world in Indigenous cultures. @DClovis https://t.co/7DoX3d45Ca

RT @CJMCBE: Our Grade 5 students explored Weaselhead Flats today. We learned so much about wetlands, plants, and animals. We studied aquatic invertebrates and saw so many different birds. Thank you to our guide and to our parent volunteers 😃 #WeAreCBE https://t.co/H26VYcj1EY
