Hale School keynote and question time
Enjoying question time after my keynote speech

Celebrating Hale School’s 60th anniversary of Wembley Downs Campus

An honour tonight to attend the 60th Anniversary of Hale School’s Wembley Downs Campus.

To start the celebrations I spoke with senior school students who are studying Politics and Law, fielding some interesting and well thought out questions from students.

I was then fortunate enough to share dinner and a warfare discussion with Year 8 and 9 students, senior staff and Headmaster Dean Dell’Oro.

Hale School students, staff, parents and alumni then came together in the main auditorium for a keynote speech, followed by question time.

Hale School is Perth’s oldest boys’ school, founded by Bishop Mathew Blagden Hale in 1858.

Originally situated at the Cloisters on St Georges Terrace in Perth, Hale School relocated to the Pensioner Guard Barracks at the top of St George’s Terrace around 1880, and then to new Havelock Street premises in 1914 in West Perth. In 1961 the School moved to its current premises in Wembley Downs.

2021 marks the 60th anniversary of the move from the Havelock St campus in West Perth to the current Wembley Downs campus.
