Students at Haileybury College’s CBD campus participated for the first time last month in the school’s combined annual “tattoo”.
More than 2300 Haileybury students performed at the event held in Keysborough over six nights. The “City Tattoo” was held on August 16 and 17.
It was the first time the city campus had taken part. Local students from years 1 to 8 combined with Berwick campus students to sing and dance their way through exciting numbers supported by a 40-piece band.
This year’s theme was “respect” – using music and drama to explore respect for difference, the environment and each other.
Haileybury’s director of performing arts, Stewart Bell, said: “Respect is a tough concept to capture visually but it inspires hundreds of words. The campuses have taken the theme in many directions … through song choices and associated lyrics.”
