Benefactor Updates

We recently asked our Haileybury Foundation Scholarship students to write to their benefactors, update them on their first semester and thank them for their significant impact on each student’s education.

The appreciation from our students for the gifts they are receiving was heart-warming. Here are some of the comments:

Ryan Zhang (Year 10 City) Gary Bailey Memorial Scholarship

'Haileybury has opened my eyes and allowed me to think of doing things that I would never have thought of doing before. As each goal of mine is accomplished, I keep setting myself new ones that are even more difficult.

It is all thanks to your generous donation that I have been able to reach so many of my personal goals. I promise that I will keep aiming higher and higher. Thank you truly for making it so that I may come to Haileybury. Thank you.'

Anya Dong
(Year 7 Newlands) Class of 2020 Scholarship

‘I am head over heels in love with this school and can’t wait to see what the next semester is going to be like. I am forever grateful for everything you have done to help support my journey at Haileybury! There are no words for how much I appreciate your support and I will continue to strive to make you all proud.

Being at Haileybury had always been something I could only dream of, but you have made this dream a reality. You have given me the stepping stone on the flight of steps ahead. You have opened the door to my future. You have given me the opportunity to do such wondrous things.’

Harper Quinn
(Year 9 Keysborough) G & A McGeary Scholarship in memory of Russell McLean Howard

‘Thank you so much. I’ve never had the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest teachers in the state and to play sport with some of the best basketball players that I’ve ever played with. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to a school like this and to have the chance to do things I’ve never thought about. This experience has truly changed my life and I will be forever grateful.’

Haileybury Foundation Giving Day

On Thursday, 11 August, 2022 our community has another opportunity to change a life forever.

Haileybury will be conducting its first Giving Day with the aim of providing a scholarship for a student who would otherwise never have dreamed of attending our School.

The funds raised from the Giving Day will have an enormous impact as they will support a Scholarship, the Haileybury 130 Scholarship, that celebrates 130 years of the School.

All funds raised on Giving Day will go to the scholarship that will be open to a student in Year 7, 9 or 10 at any of Haileybury’s Melbourne campuses.

All donations, regardless of size, will contribute to an amazing cause that will change a student’s life and provide them with a world class education.

All Giving Day donors will be notified of the first scholarship recipient when they are announced in September 2022. The scholarship recipient will begin at Haileybury at the start of the 2023 School year.
