Winter sport gets under way

Winter sport training and trials commenced for all students in Years 7–12 on Tuesday, 28 March. All students need to be aware of their winter sport selection and, most importantly, have all the gear required for that sport.

Rugby rebel

Will Toohey (Year 12) has been selected in the Melbourne Rebels Under 18 Academy squad. The squad comprises the next wave of up-and-coming rugby players in Victoria and allows Will to develop his skills in an elite sporting environment.

We look forward to him transferring this knowledge to the Haileybury Rugby Team.

More athletics success

At the recent Victorian State Athletic Championships, Haileybury was well represented with 15 athletes competing across 16 different events. Haileybury’s athletes made 31 finals and took home seven gold, five silver and four bronze medals.

Congratulations to our new State Champions, medallists and all competitors who continue to train with their private and school coaches, and to compete at the highest state level.

Good luck to them all as they move to National Championships during the holidays.
