Young Haleians

Young Haleians

Classmates Kim O’Brien (2005-12) and Andrew Kelly (2008-12) were the catalyst for the formation of what is now known as the Young Haleians.

They did a lot of the formative, behind-the-scenes preparation together before Andrew took off to Melbourne University to further his studies. Undeterred, Kim kept the candle burning and joined forces with other recent graduates who were keen to keep their connection to the School intact.

Kim is now a member of the OHA Committee and Chair of the Young Haleians. The YH Committee aim to provide the best events and resources to enable all Young Haleians to reconnect over their common bond - being Hale School. They are well on the way to formalising some very exciting projects, including social events for young Haleians to get together and reconnect in a social laid back setting.




leading the way mentoring program

The Young Haleians are proud to be a part of the ‘Leading the Way’ mentoring program; designed to assist past Hale students reach their full potential in their chosen career and within the community.

The program partners experienced Old Boys (mentors) with recent Hale graduates (mentees).

Old Boys get to pass invaluable knowledge on and witness the transition from layperson to a professional in that industry, while Young Haleians can gain an insight into the profession, have the opportunity to ask questions and begin to experience what life is like from the other side.

Mentoring relationships can take all forms, from informal coffee catch ups to work-based experience. However, a constant aspect is that what you put in is what you get out. If you are unsure about a career path, or want to know how you get there speaking to someone who already HAS been there before, and can point you in the right direction.
