Haileybury Named Primary School of the Year

NEWS 1 Sept 2022

Haileybury has won the nation’s prestigious Primary School of the Year – Non-government Award for a fourth time.

Haileybury collected the much sought-after title at the Australian Education Awards 2022 in Sydney on Friday, 12th August.

Haileybury’s Primary School was acknowledged by award organisers at The Educator for the strength and breadth of its bespoke programs that encourage and support children during their earliest years of education.

“Primary school years are the start of a young person’s educational journey.”
Mr Scott Doran, Haileybury Vice Principal Community Engagement & Advancement.

“They are the formative years and the foundation that can spark a lifelong love of learning, so to be recognised as Primary School of the Year – Non-government is a tremendous honour for Haileybury.”

Haileybury Primary School’s enduring success at the Australian Education Awards is due to a number of initiatives. This includes its tried and tested Explicit Teaching Model that sees teachers break down complex skills and strategies into clear, manageable and sequenced steps.

On the basis of ‘I Do, We Do and You Do’, Haileybury’s Primary School teachers show children what they are learning, how to do it and why they are learning it to embed skills and confidence in students from the beginning of their school journey. Haileybury has shared the Explicit Teaching Model with hundreds of teachers and school leaders nationally and internationally to help many more children beyond its campuses build their literacy and numeracy skills.

“Haileybury’s Primary Program has been built on strong programs that support student learning, resilience and help children discover their sense of curiosity and individuality. Our Explicit Teaching Model has been integral to the growth and success of our students and has been shared widely,” said Mr Doran.

“Strong partnerships with families are also fundamental to the success of our Primary Program.

“When you put all these elements together, you create a place where children want to be, a place where they want to learn and explore, and you create an environment for success now and into the future.

“Haileybury is very proud to be recognised, once again, as Australia’s Primary School of the Year – Non-government. It is well-deserved recognition for our brilliant teachers, for our hard-working and curious-minded students and for the families in our community who support our work every day.”
