Welcome to Edrington

It is my pleasure to welcome all Edrington families to the 2022 school year. I hope you had a restful and enjoyable break with family and friends and that all students are ready for an exciting year ahead. I extend a very warm welcome to all of the new students and families joining us this year; I’m sure you will find Haileybury to be a very welcoming school.

School commences on Thursday, 27 January and full summer uniform is required. We ask that all students arrive by 8.20 am to allow plenty of time to find their classrooms and get settled. We also ask that everyone adheres to all safety protocols to ensure that our community stays as safe as possible.

Information Sessions will be held for ELC, Junior School and Middle School on Wednesday 2 February at 7.00 pm. Further details will follow soon.

We are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead and we thank you for the opportunity to share in your child’s educational journey in 2022.

Early Learning Centre

A Warm Welcome to ELC

We extend a warm welcome to all our ELC families, both new and returning.

We are busy preparing classrooms for the start of the school year and 2022 is sure to be a year of great learning, fun and fostering many warm relationships. The ELC staff have been working hard to provide stimulating and engaging learning environments and the first few weeks of the year will focus on developing relationships, with staff observing and getting to know each child.

We gently remind parents to please ensure you bring your child’s hat, a small pillow and a blanket or sheet for Day 1, and please ensure all items are clearly labelled. We also remind parents to make sure you apply sunscreen to your child before arrival.

We are looking forward to welcoming all children in Pre-Prep, Full-Time and Two-Day Program Reception to the ELC on Thursday, 27 January. We will see Part-Time Reception children on Monday, 31 January.

Junior School

Getting Back to Routine

The new term is fast approaching, and we look forward to seeing the children and hearing about their break. We hope you have been able to spend time with extended family, or even managed to enjoy a holiday.

Term 1 begins on Thursday, 27 January. Full summer uniform is required for Day 1 and this includes the black hat for recess and lunch play, a water bottle, sunscreen and the magenta hat for boys and white straw hat for girls. The magenta and white hat should be worn to and from school every day. Blazers are not required in Junior School in Term 1.

Parking will be available on the Front Oval. Please bring all stationery items on Day 1 and refer to the instructions of your Homeroom Teacher about labelling items. We look forward to seeing you all!

Junior School Information Evening

The Prep to Year 4 Information Evening will be held in Week 2 on Wednesday, 2 February at 7.00 pm. Please add this to your diary and more information about how this event will be run will be communicated closer to the date.

Middle School

Prepare to be Busy

Welcome back to all Middle School families, in particular all our new students and families. There is much to look forward to this year and, as usual, our students will be busy from the outset.

All students are reminded to bring their Haileybury Sport uniform on the first day of school, as some year levels will have Physical Education.

Parent Information Evening

On Wednesday, 2 February at 7.00 pm, all Middle School parents are invited to attend the 2022 Information Evening. This is a good opportunity to meet the Heads of School and your child’s new teachers and to gain an understanding of the daily routines and procedures in the Middle School and in each homeroom for this year.
