We believe students learn best in an environment which is emotionally and physically safe.
A child's emotional and physical wellbeing is paramount to achievement. Caring teachers who know their students well are the key to creating a safe and happy school.
High expectations for students behaviour are expressed daily in our school. Personal and social responsibilities are themes that carry through every programme.
We're here to help - when children do experience difficulty, we work as a team to put things right.
2013 Balmacewen Swimming Sports - Friday 22nd March
Our school swimming sports were held at Moana Pool and as always it was great to see so many students competing, participating, supporting and having fun! All students who swam in the competitive races will from here be considered for further interschool competition. Below are a few shots from the event. More results and house point scoring will be available soon!
Year 8 Triathlon - Friday 22nd February
All year 8 students headed out to Mosgiel for our year 8 triathlon. Students were able to compete as individuals or in teams over the course that consisted of a 100m swim, 4km cycle and a 1.5km run.
It was great to see all students giving their best efforts across all disciplines, supporting eachother and having fun!
A big thank you to all parents who helped out with transporting bikes and marshalling on the course.
Another huge thank you must go to the fantastic team at R&R Sport who supported this event with the use of their Marquee for our finishing recorders and for a heap of drink bottles that were given out to competitors.
There will be a link to results here once they are finalised and published.
Below you can view a slide show of some shots from the day.
