Senior School news


On Wednesday, 24 April the Senior School was privileged to attend an ANZAC day commemorative assembly. Expertly organised by Deputy Principal Pickering Tyers and ably supported by our student Cadet representatives, Peta Gibson (Year 11), Oliver Wurst (Year 11), Maddy Brennan (Year 11), Hamish Brennan (Year 10), Jacob Caden (Year 7), Alexandra Mavros-Zikos (Year 8), and Max Varley (Year 12).

In addition to the stories from Gallipoli, we were witness to an incredibly haunting and beautiful rendition of ‘Empty Chairs and Empty tables’ by Jirra Jennings (Year 6) and Rowan Unwin (Year 6). Their performance in front of the Senior School community was truly inspiring and a fitting tribute to our ANZACs past and present.

ANZAC Biscuit competition

The annual House ANZAC biscuit competition was also run. The student leaders diligently taste tested the multiple entries, with the top four recipes making it into the final. Under very close scrutiny by our Year 12 Student leaders and a very thorough taste testing process, Principal McGregor, and Deputy Principal Pearson, announced the winning recipe. Congratulations to Eloise Tonkin (Year 8) representing Djarrak.

Northern Territory Youth Round Table

Congratulations to Ashley Parsons (Year 12) and Oliver Wurst (Year 11) who have been selected to represent Haileybury Rendall School in the Youth Round Table.

Each year students throughout the NT can apply to participate in the Youth Round table, providing a voice to the youth of the Territory. Selection for the Youth Round Table is highly competitive. Having two students from Haileybury Rendall School selected for this program is a significant achievement. In recognition of his outstanding contributions, Oliver was elected to the position of Vice Chair. Congratulations to both Ashely and Oliver.
