“I feel very proud of the results and outcomes that these boys have achieved because I know 2020 was an unpredictable year for them and this would have made Year 12 just that little more challenging,” said Headmaster, Dean Dell’Oro.

“On behalf of the wider Hale School community, I congratulate every boy who completed Year 12 last year. We acknowledge their commitment knowing that their education at Hale will lead them to a world of possibilities as they head towards new pathways and goals.”

Hale School prioritised onsite schooling for the Year 12 students during COVID-19 restrictions, ensuring they only missed one week of face-to-face teaching.
