Melbourne’s Deputy Lord Mayor pays a visit

As part of his recent visit to China, it was a great honour to welcome Melbourne Deputy Lord Mayor, Nicholas Reece, to Haileybury Tianjin last month. Mr Reece has a long-standing connection with China and was delighted to visit our School and meet students and staff.

He shared his fond memories of China and the importance of continuing to build strong connections between Melbourne and Tianjin. He praised the efforts of Haileybury Tianjin in promoting cultural exchange and fostering mutual understanding between Chinese and international students.

Mr Reece was particularly impressed by the quality of education at our School and he praised our students for their hard work, dedication and achievements. He also expressed admiration for our staff who have worked tirelessly to create a nurturing and inclusive learning environment that supports student success.

Mr Reece also paid a surprise visit to the Haileybury Micro-Film Festival and presented some awards to students. We are grateful for his visit and for the support of Melbourne City Council in promoting education and cultural exchange. We look forward to further strengthening our connections with Melbourne and continuing to provide students with opportunities to learn from, and engage with, the global community.

Haileybury Micro-Film Festival

In September, we mark the 10th anniversary of our School and we recently celebrated this milestone with a micro-film project which resulted in the Haileybury Micro-Film Awards. The ceremony was a grand occasion with several special guests in attendance including Ma Yin, host of Tianjin Television Science and Education Channel, Zhang Baohong, Director of Tianjin Cloud Information Group, and Li Jie, editor of Tianjin Education Daily. They were joined by Haileybury leaders.

A special red carpet and photo boards celebrating the history of our school through film and photos were provided for guests, parents, staff and students. Over 50 short films were submitted by the Haileybury community and the awards recognised different categories including best director, best producer, best actor and actress, best graphics and best picture.

It was truly inspiring to see the hard work and dedication put into each of these short films and we extend our warmest congratulations to all involved! This was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our School’s achievements over the past 10 years, and we look forward to many more years of success.

Junior School Mathematics Festival

Our recent Junior School Mathematics Festival celebrated mathematics and creativity and brought students, parents and teachers together to explore the wonderful world of numbers and shapes.

The day started with normal Friday classes and around noon parents arrived for meetings and presentations with teachers. Parents learned more about their child’s progress and how they can support their child’s learning at home.

Next, we all moved to the theatre and were treated to fantastic presentations from teachers and students, including an opening address by our Executive Principal, Peter Rogerson. We learnt about different mathematical topics including geometry, fractions and measurement, and then students, parents and teachers moved to the gym, which was transformed into a wonderland of mathematical activities.

Students enjoyed firework painting, building sandcastles, rainbow rain brain games and string art. Each activity used different mathematical skills such as spatial reasoning, problem-solving and critical thinking.

I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all the teachers, staff and parents who made this event possible.
