Students Showcase Their Art

Our Senior, Primary and Middle Schools recently celebrated their students’ artwork with exhibitions where students could reflect on their own work and see the creative talents of their classmates.

More than 100 artworks were produced, including paintings, drawings, photographs, ceramics and sculptures.

“Having the opportunity to display their artwork for their peers and teachers in a gallery style setting gives students an opportunity to take pride in the art they have created while in school.”

Year 12 Examinations and VCE Graduation

After completing their final examinations, Year 12 students enjoyed farewell activities including the Year 12 Graduation Ball and the VCE Graduation Ceremony.

The Year 12 Graduation Ball brought students and staff together in the Nicholas Dwyer Courtyard where they celebrated and exchanged their memories of the year.

The Ball was a spectacular event organised by the school student leaders — complete with a red carpet for staff and students to walk along dressed in their beautiful attire. Later in the evening, there was plenty of dancing and many photos were taken.

The next morning, the 2022 Graduation Ceremony and Lunch took place to farewell our 105 graduates. The graduating students, Senior School staff, school leaders and the Years 9–11 students were joined by the graduate students’ parents and the wider community who celebrated this special occasion via live video stream. With confidence and smiles, the Year 12 students now embark on a new journey in a bigger world.

Executive Principal, Peter Rogerson, congratulated the graduates and spoke about how they would now enter a global Haileybury community where graduates share core values, such as striving for excellence, social justice and having an international outlook.

He encouraged graduates not to forget that as graduates from China, they hold an extra special mission which is to contribute their wisdom to share in building a better world.

Haileybury CEO | Principal, Derek Scott, sent a special video message that recognised the achievements of each graduate and of the teaching staff. Russell Davidson, President of the Old Haileyburian Association (OHA), also sent a video message of congratulations and welcomed each graduate to the OHA.

Many staff spoke about the growth they had witnessed in the graduates over the past three years and how they hoped each graduate will embrace life with passion and will experience everything this magnificent world has to offer.

At the courtyard lunch, graduates were again encouraged to live life to the fullest, to never forget their roots, and to find inspiration in everything they encounter as they explore the wider world.

Congratulations to our Haileybury 2022 graduates!
