Welcome back, City!

Our City team are delighted to welcome you to 2024.  There are great things planned for our new and returning students.  Every student and staff member matters every day at Haileybury and we know the first day is particularly special.  Please take time to take a special photo of your child or young person’s first day outside our campus.  Learning starts at 8.30 am and we look forward to our students all returning in summer uniform and ready to go.

Our Heads of School will be with me on King Street to welcome all of our families to City campus from 8.00 am. We can’t wait to see you all.

School uniform

Summer uniform is to be worn for Term 1, and the link for Uniform Student Expectations can be found on myHaileybury. Please note, Junior School students are not required to wear the blazer with the summer uniform. As a SunSmart school, the School cap or bucket hat is compulsory for all outdoor activities during Terms 1 and 4.

myHaileybury app

As we embark on another exciting school year in 2024, we would like to remind you to make the most of our School app, myHaileybury. This powerful tool is your gateway to staying informed about all the key dates for your child and is the main communication tool for educators and parents.

Setting goals

The start of the year brings a wonderful sense of renewed enthusiasm and the chance to set new goals. As the school year starts, please remind your child that:

  • Academic rigour is important. Set goals for your learning and commit to working hard to achieve them. There are many people who will support you, including your parents and family.
  • Be curious about the world around you. Ask questions and interrogate answers to grow your sharp mind. Approach opportunity with a gung-ho attitude and a growth mindset.
  • This is your year to try something new and when the going gets tough, know that you are resilient and capable. With an open mind, you will achieve great things.
  • Treating others with kindness will make your world a better place — that is a responsibility of being a member of our Haileybury community, as you grow a kind heart.
  • Smile and find joy in what you do because there is no greater reward.
