Start of the school year

After a refreshing two-month summer break, we joyfully welcomed our returning students. Our School’s security team efficiently helped parents with parking and student drop-off and guided them to the registration points.

Upon entering the School, the students were warmly welcomed by their Heads of School, welfare staff and life teachers. Later that day, familiar faces and new additions gathered in their Homerooms. They familiarised themselves with their new welfare teachers and attended a presentation outlining the comprehensive measures in place to ensure their wellbeing throughout their academic journey.

New academic year Opening Ceremony

The beginning of the Haileybury school year was celebrated with students and staff gathering on the sports oval to usher in hopes for the new academic year. The opening ceremony began with the Chinese national anthem and the raising of the national flag.

The ceremony was hosted by Junior School Head of Teaching and Learning, Ethan Jia, and Iris (Year 10) and there were also student representatives from Primary, Middle, Senior and Gao Kao schools holding up various sub-school flags.

Another highlight was poem recitations from students, teachers and parents and their eloquent delivery added depth and beauty to the ceremony. Peter Rogerson, Executive Principal of Haileybury Tianjin, addressed the students and staff, warmly welcomed the new students and shared his hopes that they set themselves clear goals, study hard and become confident teenagers.

Start-Up Program

All Haileybury staff took part in an in-depth professional learning and development program before students returned to school. The program began with staff gathering in the theatre where our Executive Principal, Peter Rogerson, outlined the current position of the School and the results of our Year 12 students.

It was also an opportunity for the new Executive Principal, Andrew McAree, to introduce himself and to discuss his vision for the future of Haileybury Tianjin. This was followed by the HR Department and the two Executive Principals presenting whole school role model awards to staff. The four-day program also consisted of key presentations and workshops with each sub-school presenting its key goals to staff and conducting welfare and curriculum training.
