I am absolutely thrilled that Haileybury Rendall School Boarding has achieved a number of successful and significant Australian Education Award 2022 nominations.

This is great recognition of Dennis Nowak, Head of Boarding, and his team on their relentless high-quality work. I also particularly acknowledge Felicity Pearson and Ian Smith for their dedication and oversight in this vital aspect of HRS School life.

The most prestigious nomination has landed in the Australian Education Awards 2022 Boarding School of the Year category. The other Excellence Awardees in this category are elite, private schools from Queensland, Sydney and Adelaide so to get through to this final stage is an incredible achievement and recognition of what we are doing.

The nomination and being able to reach the finals stage was a rigorous process. Haileybury Rendall School is the only Boarding School of the six qualifying finalists with a vast majority of Indigenous students.

The Awards will be decided in Sydney on Friday, 12 August.

We also congratulate Haileybury Melbourne on reaching the finals of three other categories.

At the same time, we have heard that we have successfully been nominated for FOUR more awards at the National Indigenous Boarding Awards to be held in Newcastle from Wednesday, 15 June to Friday, 17 June.

These categories are:

  • Exceptional Cultural Connection by a Boarding School
  • Exceptional Contribution to the Community by an Indigenous Boarding Student: Makayla Noble-Webster (Year 10)
  • Excellence in Provision of Indigenous Student Health and Wellbeing
  • Excellence in Indigenous Education and Boarding Leadership: Anthony Ayres who has provided more than 20 years’ service.
