CEO | Principal's Report

Music performances, the Haileybury Pipes & Drums, Sport training, House Sport activities, celebration of student achievement at Speech Days and Nights and Haileybury Girls and Boys Graduation ceremonies—it really is just a joy to see students participate and enjoy so many activities.

I am particularly looking forward to the delayed Graduation ceremonies for the boys (tonight) and girls (Tuesday night) as a chance to acknowledge and celebrate the achievement of Haileybury’s Year 12 cohort.

It has been two years of senior schooling in which students have been presented with many challenges. They have risen to them, superbly supported by their teachers and by the exceptional Haileybury digital learning team.

Indeed, it gives me great pleasure to note that Haileybury’s Online Program during the past two years has been recognised at national level with the School winning Best Remote Learning Program at the Australian Education Awards last Friday night.

Just as the teachers and digital learning team worked so hard to deliver the Academic Program for students, we are also delighted that Haileybury won the Best Student Wellbeing Program.

This again was a collective effort from Haileybury’s outstanding pastoral care leaders, including our wonderful Psychologists led by Maria Bailey and under the guidance of Senior Vice-Principal and Head of Senior Schools Pam Chamberlain.

We are particularly pleased that this award is recognition of the wonderful work of all of Haileybury’s pastoral care and student welfare team.

Haileybury’s Primary School Program with the Explicit Teaching Model has long been recognised as exceptional because of the extraordinary student outcomes. For the second year in a row and the third time in five years, Haileybury was awarded Australian Primary School of the Year (Non-Government).

All the awards received are a result of the work of wonderful, committed staff. It is a pleasure to work with such brilliant colleagues, supportive families and dedicated students.
