Vale Jim McLean ('51)Posted: Monday, 21 July 2014
Vale Jim McLean ('51)Posted: Monday, 21 July 2014Jim McLean ('51) died on Saturday 19 July 2014, aged 79 years. Jim was an outstanding contributor to Haileybury and to the community over many years. He was a dedicated and caring teacher at Castlefield Junior School from 1957 until his retirement in 1994. He acted as Castlefield Head on several occasions, and was the Senior Assistant to the Head on a number of occasions. He served as Hon Secretary of the OHA.
His dedicated teaching and concern for each of the students under his care enhanced the lives of several generations of students.
As a young boy he had been a boarder at Haileybury, having come from Barham where his father was the local Ford dealer. So his devotion to the school was nearly life-long.
Jim led a busy life after retirement, being a Bail Justice, an information officer at the Melbourne Magistrate's Court, a private tutor, and a volunteer at Ripponlea.
Our sincere condolences are extended to his wife E’von, his daughters Lisa and Jennifer, his son Stauart (OH1988) and their families.
A funeral service to celebrate Jim's Life will be held on Wednesday 30 July at 2.30pm in the Brighton Chapel - 139 Marriage Rd, Brighton.

OHA Hockey girls on fire!Posted: Thursday, 3 July 2014
OHA Hockey girls on fire!Posted: Thursday, 3 July 2014Round 9 saw the OHAHC Women’s side play in the rain on Sunday against the low ranked Southern United HC. The girls were determined not to underestimate Southern United since there have been several upsets in the competition and most sides in this competition seem to be evenly matched. This week we had stand in goalie (and normally star forward) Anooki Keyte in goals who did some amazing dives to stop Southern United scoring. Defence by Claudelle Salter, Lisa Emery and Jess Yates was superb and able to shut down several runs by the Southern United attack. First half saw goals scored by Liching Li, Lauren Barnes and Kelly Bendon to put us up 3-0 at the break. Second half saw us quickly score another 3 goals with Lyndal Wallis beating the goalie and then Liching Li putting in 2 goal assists by Vy Nguyen to get a hat trick. The last 10 minutes of the game saw the Women’s team tire and cease their shots on goal however strong defence kept Southern United from scoring and the final score was 6-0 to keep us in 3rd position on the ladder half way through the season.
