Hale maintains a strong relationship with our ‘sister’ school, St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School. Boys in all year levels enjoy educational and social activities with the girls, ranging from class visits and collaborations, to workshops on positive relationships, shared music ensembles, rock climbing competitions, social dances, fundraising initiatives and student leadership meetings. We believe we offer ‘the best of both worlds’ by remaining a single-sex school focusing on boys’ needs while providing opportunities for positive interactions with girls.

Hale is a partner school with Madalah and therefore enrolled students may be eligible.
