Now More than Ever was the theme for National Reconciliation Week 2024 and the students and staff of Haileybury Rendall School certainly embraced this during the week.

National Reconciliation Week

Led by the RAP committee, multiple activities were organised designed to engage and educate the HRS community about the reconciliation process and the need for active participation by all. Starting with the creation of a new Acknowledgement of Country video, the week also included curriculum and learning activities from ELC through to Senior School. In addition, there was the pop-up Art Exhibition, lunchtime Indigenous sports, the Great Book Swap, guest speakers, and a fundraising BBQ with the Year 12 Leaders cooking up a storm. A highlight was the NRW concert, led by Harry Hildebrand, and featuring staff and student performances by Lachie Fryer (Year 7), Rahiri Bedggood (Year 12), Robin Wesely (Year 12), the student band Electric Telephones and Bonnie Peacocke (Year 12), and Staff performers were Felicity Pearson, Brendan Evans, and Mitchell Taylor. We were also privileged to have guest performers Shellie Morris, Jaxon De Santis, and the Torres Strait Islander Dancers. It was truly an awe-inspiring week of education and participation by all.

Interhouse Athletics

The week culminated with the Interhouse Athletics Carnival as students from each House battled it out in the different track and field events. There were many outstanding individual performances, but the highlight was the level of participation and the supportive and positive spirit of all students who attended. Congratulations to Baru, led by Elsie Harden (Year 12) and Charles Hyde (Year 12), it was a magnificent day.
