Haileybury's 125th Anniversary Ball

The Haileybury community celebrated in style at the 125th Anniversary Ball held at Atlantic Group, Docklands.

The evening was filled with fantastic entertainment and delicious food which was enjoyed by the Haileybury community.

A special highlight was the extraordinary performance of Haileybury Pipes & Drums. The Band opened the evening with a stunning arrangement of the music from Pirates of the Caribbean, combining recorded tracks with Japanese Taiko drums. This innovation, developed from Deputy Director of the Pipes & Drums, Lincoln Hilton’s experience of European Pipes & Drums events, highlighted past and present pipers before the full band’s entrance. When combined with the lights and sound, the audience was absolutely captivated by the spectacle.

Some of our best soloists featured in singing the School Song and the National Anthem before recent graduate, Ms Emily Ward, led 30 past and present dancers in a surprise ‘flash mob’ on the dance floor.

Other special appearances included the Haileybury Singers, The Project’s Gorgi Coghlan as MC and Justice Lex Lasry (OH ‘66) who gave a thoughtful toast to the School.

The Haileybury Foundation Charity Raffle raised over $11,000 for the Foundation and saw ten lucky winners walk away with amazing prizes.

After finishing off the evening on the dancing to fantastic covers by Paint the Town, all guests took home a delicious treat.

Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make Haileybury's 125th Anniversary Ball a huge success. It was definitely an event not to be missed.
