Clock installation on the clock tower, May 2013

On June 21, 2013, Balmoral will have the official dedication of the restored clock tower.  In keeping with the authenticity of the original school, four faces have been attached to the tower, all pointing to 4:05 pm.  The faces were originally painted on, but with 21st century technology, aluminum faces were created in order to withstand the weather conditions of Calgary.  This project was funded jointly by BP Energy and the Government of Alberta.  See pictures of the installation!
















Here's a school song from a late 1950's Balmoral School Concert. It begins...

"Old Clock over head
Still no clock when we go to bed,
No clock wakes us in the morn,
no clock since our school was born. Chopsuey".
