STEM Exhibition

The recent STEM Exhibition allowed students to understand the many STEM clubs and activities on offer within the School. They took part in captivating demonstrations like LEGO programming and aerial photography and there were opportunities for hands-on experiences with 3D printing and STEM-based mini experiments. We hope many students will be encouraged to explore Haileybury’s STEM education programs.

Year 12 retreat

Haileybury Senior School Tianjin (HSST) has hosted its first Year 12 retreat, which provided students with a comprehensive range of workshops to enhance their skills and knowledge in preparation for the new school year. The retreat included a series of workshops on topics including VCE procedures, strategies to deal with anxiety, exam success tips, career guidance, effective note-taking skills and the importance of being a role model.

To further support students’ post-secondary planning, there was also a comprehensive session on careers and pathways. Another vital aspect of the retreat focused on improving note-taking skills. Students were taught how to take efficient and structured notes so they can capture essential information effectively to support their revision.

Year 12 Prefects from Haileybury Melbourne joined us online to share some of their study skills, academic advice and leadership experience with our Year 12 students and School Captains. The session gives students from both campuses a sense of being part of one Haileybury.

Executive Principals, Peter Rogerson and Andrew McAree, presented each Year 12 student with a Year 12 tie to mark the significance of this pivotal year. The retreat also included outdoor activities such as a barbeque, kayaking and bike riding.

Leadership Induction Assembly

Recently we held the Student Leadership Induction Ceremony in the Haileybury Tianjin Theatre. It was an opportunity for the Senior School to celebrate the students and House Captains and to remind all student leaders that their induction is a testament to the confidence that the school community has in their leadership capability.

In their speeches to the student body, School Captains Adam and Yoyo, gave three insights to help students thrive on their leadership journey: be passionate, model the way and show relentless determination to succeed.

Executive Principal, Andrew McAree, spoke about how student leadership teams can have a profound impact on the culture of the school communities which they serve. He also encouraged the student leaders to remember that leadership is a privilege and not confined to titles. Rather, it is a shared responsibility that involves all students working together.
