Principal's Message

Welcome to Balwin School. As the new principal I am thrilled to be working at Balwin School and I am eager to meet all members of our rich and diverse learning community. At Balwin School we focus on high quality education for all, supporting the diverse and varied needs of all students. Balwin School is aligned with  Edmonton Public School’s common vision, mission and values. Our work is driven through the district’s strategic plan of three priorities and strategic goals. A link to the district’s strategic plan can be found through https://www.epsb.ca/ourdistrict/results/strategicplanhttps:/. Balwin School is extremely fortunate to have an exceptional teaching staff. Our teachers work diligently to ensure the students work within the framework of Alberta Education’s Curriculum and Assessment pathways and requirements.

Priority #1Foster growth and success for every student by supporting their journey from early learning through high school completion and beyond”.

Balwin school works hard to support an excellent start to learning and success for every student. This foundation is critical for success beyond school.

Priority #2 “Provide welcoming, high quality learning and working environments”.

At Balwin a student’s well-being and citizenship development are central to our school community with an emphasis on a quality learning environment. Key to the work is the high level collaboration with staff at the school, colleagues in the district and our community partners to ensure excellence and supportive accountability.

Priority #3 “Enhance public education through communication, engagement and partnerships”.

With the wealth of partnerships Balwin is able to assist our school community with supporting the whole child in a manner that supports families and promotes public education. Student leadership and community activities provide opportunities for quality character development.

I look forward with much excitement to the year ahead. Please know I am available to meet and discuss concerns and questions. Together we can create the future we want for our children.
