Welcome to our new staff

As we fast approach the end of our summer break, Haileybury will welcome 36 new staff for the new academic year and they will be involved in all aspects of the School, including logistics, boarding, welfare and academic areas.

We also continue our relationship with the teaching department of Changchun Normal University and will receive 18 teaching interns who will be mentored across our Junior and Senior Schools.

All new staff have completed our comprehensive onboarding process and take part in a two-day induction program this week. This will include keynote speeches from school leaders that give an overview of the school systems and process, the academic programs within each sub-school and the key goals and objectives for the upcoming year.

Each of the new staff will be assigned a mentor who will assist them during their first month, oversee their induction program and help them complete their induction checklist. We are very excited to welcome our new staff members to the Haileybury community.

Haileybury Melbourne staff training

The Haileybury Melbourne training program for Tianjin staff concluded last week and all staff returned to China with very positive feedback and lots of ideas they are keen to implement.

Head of Senior School, Cathy Qi, and our Head of Middle School Mathematics, Claire Zhang, share their thoughts below:

‘Haileybury Melbourne is a wonderful institution with an incredible array of staff across all fields who are so willing to help you grow in your profession. The collaboration between departments is something that impressed me immensely.’ Cathy Qi

‘I was lucky to be placed in different campuses and to engage with Middle School and Senior School students and staff. To be able to see how the Head of Department coordinates their curriculum meetings will help me with my work back in China. Observing many lessons and being able to discuss specific strategies was something that will help me improve my teaching methods.’ Claire Zhang
