The Edrington Family Picnic was a wonderful event for students and families in the ELC, Junior School and Middle School. Hundreds of people attended and enjoyed the live band, rides, rock climbing, giant slide, food truck, face painting and animal farm.

Even with all of these fantastic activities, what was most enjoyable was being able to come together as a community and spend time with each other again. Many thanks to HPFE for their assistance with this event. It’s very much appreciated.

Connecting with our ELC Families

Recently, our Reception parents were invited for Morning Tea in the Junior School Quad. Many parents attended and enjoyed having the opportunity to catch up in a social setting.

On the last Wednesday of term, each class opened their doors to our ELC parents who were invited into the classroom to spend the last part of the school day together. This is the first time this year that our parents have been able to come into the classroom, see their child’s class in action and look at their children’s work displayed in their rooms.

Easter Bonnet Parade

The Easter Bonnet Parade is an absolute favourite event at Edrington! Our children create and wear the most fabulous hats. A huge thank you to all the parents who assist in these beautiful creations.

It has been wonderful to be on site for the whole term and to see our students across ELC and the Junior School blossom in the classroom and with their friendships. We wish you all a wonderful Easter and holiday break!

Middle School

At the end of Term 1, the Year 7 and 8 boys and girls ventured on their respective camps. The mild weather makes this a great time of year for camps and it is also an opportunity to develop new friendships through shared experiences and challenges. The camping program is a valuable experience for all students who challenge themselves to step outside their comfort zones and try something new with the support of teachers and peers.

Year 7 Camp

The Year 7 Camp saw students spend four nights between Camp Jungai and the Cathedral Ranges. In Camp Jungai, students slept in cabin accommodation for two nights and undertook activities that fostered the kind of teamwork and problem-solving skills that students will use for the rest of the year.

Year 8 Camp

Year 8 students took part in bush walking, cycling and problem-solving activities at Eildon Lake and in the surrounding bushland. They spent each night in tents and moved campsites daily.

Haileybury Parents & Friends Edrington (HPFE)

What an amazing few weeks! The Family Picnic was so much fun and thankfully the weather held out for us all. Tom from Mobile Ice-Creams very generously donated $180 back to the HPFE from the event. We also had Bimali with us from Mali’s Magical face painting—her son, Dhee, graduated from Haileybury Edrington in 2020. She loved being back on campus to have fun with us all. I’m desperate for a pet Goose after feeding the one in the Myuna Animal Farm—he was so sweet!

The Pre-Senior boys received their table tennis table last week. Dale Goodman will wave his magic wand and have it ready to go when we return from our Easter break.

Tracy has put her gift shopping expertise into action and has some wonderful gifts ready for our Mothers Day stalls! There is something for every mum and special friend!

  • The ELC stall will be held on Tuesday, 3 May, in the ELC foyer
  • The JS and MS stall will be held on Thursday, 5 May, in the JT Hall.

If you are available to help with stall sales on those days, please let us know.

Our next HPFE meeting is on Tuesday, 10 May, in the Pavilion at 9.00 am.
