During Week 5 of Term 3, as part of our extracurricular Curious Minds program, Haileybury partook in whole school STEM Week celebrations from ELC all the way to Year 12. The week was celebrated alongside Australia’s National Science Week, which incorporated the theme Innovation: Powering Future Industries.

Our Senior School students were provided extensive opportunities to celebrate all things STEM, problem solving new innovative ways to complete different activities and challenges. From Terrarium Building, Chess Competition, Student Robot Display, Squid Dissections, Water Rocket Launches, Student vs Teacher Mathematics Competitions, Fun in the Laboratory, Engineering and Coding Challenge, our students were able to engage and have fun with hands-on learning experiences, celebrating curiosity, critical thinking and the endless possibilities that STEM has to offer.

Haileybury STEM week concluded with the annual STEM Conference Dinner which was hosted by our Senior School STEM Captains. The evening featured the very popular Andrew Douch, who spoke around student success, value and skills in a modern, Artificial Intelligence world.

Haileybury thanks all students, teachers and staff involved in making our whole school STEM Week such a big success.

Term 4 logistics

While the September break offers some time for Senior School students to relax and unwind, it is also an important time for revision and preparation. Haileybury academic staff will run a series of revision activities for Units 3 and 4 studies throughout the September school holidays. While attendance is not compulsory, families may want to take this into account when planning holidays. A timetable detailing the times for these revision lectures will be made available to students through Canvas.

Last day of school for Year 12

Friday, 13 October will be the last day when all our Year 12 students are at school together. Berwick, Brighton and City students will travel to Keysborough to participate in the final Whole School Assembly.

Graduation Ceremonies

It is Haileybury tradition that our Year 12 cohorts have separate final day celebrations, along with individual graduation ceremonies and valedictory dinners. Our Haileybury College Year 12 students graduate on Monday, 16 October, so all Haileybury College students from Years 10 to 12 will go to Keysborough on that day. There are no Haileybury Girls College Years 10 to 12 students at school that day.

Haileybury Girls College Year 12 students graduate on Tuesday, 17 October, so all Haileybury Girls College students from Years 10 to 12 will go to Keysborough on that day. There are no Haileybury College Years 10 to 12 students at school that day.

Exams and the new academic year

Following these celebratory days, all students move into internal Haileybury examination periods or preparations for Units 3 and 4 VCE examinations.

Term 1A (the new academic year) will begin on Monday, 13 November with all students starting their 2024 academic program then.
