CEO | Principal's Report

Haileybury students achieved a remarkable result at the recent 2022 Premier’s VCE Awards. Our students in Melbourne received 34 awards in 17 subjects and six students achieved the coveted Top All-Round High Achiever Awards. In total, only 34 of these were awarded to students across Victoria.

To receive the Top All-Round High Achiever Award, a student must have a study score of 46 or above in at least five VCE Studies.

The recipients were:
Yan He Chen
Nishil Shah
Chloe Lay
Kerry Zhu
Jiaqi Lu
Kim Zhu

Individual subject awards go to a small group of high achieving students in each subject. Haileybury’s 28 such awards were achieved across 17 subjects — a wonderful acknowledgement of the breadth of choice for Haileybury students and the depth of teaching at our School.

The recipients were:

During the past few days, many of you will have seen media reports concerning an impromptu social gathering arranged by a group of parents following the APS football game between Haileybury and Caulfield Grammar on Saturday, 29 July 2023.

It was with great disappointment that the School learnt that several members of staff attended this event. As a result, we immediately stood down all staff involved whilst we investigated. We have taken further disciplinary action against staff members who were regarded as having contravened professional obligations that require staff not to attend social gatherings with parents and students outside of school-organised events.

The safety and wellbeing of our students is of paramount importance to us, and the School is supporting all those involved. We are committed to taking every possible step to ensure this situation does not happen again.
