Extra-Curricular

Balancing academic focus with personal pursuit


Haileybury supports academic and co-curricular programs with a range of extra-curricular activities covering sport, music, performances, competitions and community initiatives.

As with our Co-Curricular program, these activities aim to offer a balance to the academic focus, allowing each student to deepen their understanding and interest in their chosen pursuits.

Clubs

Chess, Drama, Neuroscience, Art Works, Robotics, Coding.


Mathematics and Science

Digitech Explorers, Mathematics Challenge, Science Talent Search, UNSW Science Competition, Maths Olympiad.


Sport and Fitness

Every student at Haileybury takes part in the Learn to Swim program. In addition, they can choose to further their interests in Aerobics and Dance, Adventure Club, Martial Arts and eSports. Our Newlands campus at Keysborough also offers Tennis lessons.

For senior students we enable participation in The Duke of Edinburgh Award program.


Music and The Arts

Building on our Strings and Ensembles programs and our renowned Pipes & Drums band, we provide further opportunities for music workshops, music camps and overseas tours. Private music tuition is also available for instruments including strings, brass, woodwind and percussion.

Curious Minds

Many students want to further their academic interests beyond the classroom and we provide Academic Extension activities to enable this.

The Curious Minds program provides students from years Prep-12 with a range of innovative and challenging co-curricular and academic extension opportunities including Model United Nations, Haileybury Hive, Drone Academy and competitions such as Tournament of Minds, Future Problem Solving and the Human Powered Vehicle Energy Breakthrough.

Each activity is designed to expand students’ thinking and to ensure they are prepared for future pathways, careers and opportunities.

Each activity is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) and LEAP (Literature, Entrepreneurship, Arts & Politics) themed to allow students to explore particular topics at a deeper level and through a defined learning structure with the support of like-minded students and staff.

The skills and competencies honed and expanded through these activities are formally recognised by HYCreds – Haileybury’s micro-credentialing system. Haileybury students can earn and be awarded digital badges that represent their passions. This information is used to develop depth of detail for each student’s overall learner profile and serves as a mark of achievement for future consideration.


Community

Community is central to life at Haileybury, and we have a range of initiatives available to students including Blood Bank, International Students’ Club, Library Committee, Shine Cambodia and Social Justice Club.
