WHERE ARE THEY NOW: Brendan Haar (OH 2002) is General Manager at Haars Nursery, an innovative wholesale family plant business located in Somerville. Brendan’s brothers, Jordan (OH 2008) and Matthew (OH 2004) are also heavily involved.
As one of Australia’s largest wholesale plant producers, Haars supplies Australian majors retailers such as Bunnings and growers with quality flowering indoor and outdoor plants, an extensive range of herbs and vegetables, indoor house plants, hanging baskets and shrubs for garden landscapes. Haars has over 200 employees which keeps Brendan very busy! 
Prior to the past 10-12 years running Haars, Brendan spent a great deal of time overseas working in a consulting company in the UK as well as enjoying some time in Germany. He also qualified as a lawyer in the UK and then had to requalify again in Australia which all up took about 10 years and a lot of patience!
On a personal note, Brendan is married to Emily and they live in Mt Eliza, after a much needed sea change from Windsor largely as a result of COVID-19. He continues to enjoy all things sports, particularly tennis and golf, and hopes to obtain an official handicap soon 😊.
Brendan had a great time at Haileybury! His best man and his best friend, Michael Shaw, was one of his classmates. He is excited about reconnecting with the Class of 2002 20-Year at their reunion on October 21. See you there Brendan!

Graduate Jackson Peele (OHA 2014) is presenting his new Australian Comedy musical ‘The Beep Test’ on 18 - 22 October with Theatreworks as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. The show is a comedic, fast-paced, over the top musical that dives into the drama and chaos that was school Beep Tests. The musical follows four determined students and one far too enthusiastic PE Teacher of class 7C, as they compete for the number one place whatever the cost!
Jackson is a graduate of WAAPA (Music Theatre) and acclaimed local musical theatre performer and writer. This is the fourth musical he has written with writing partner Conor Neylon after a sell out season of their musical ‘The House On Fire at the Edge of the World,’ at Theatreworks in 2021. ‘The Beep Test’ has previously won the Julie Michael Cabaret Award and been nominated for The Martin Sims Award. During his time at Haileybury, Jackson was Drama Captain and heavily involved in school productions and performances. He would love to see as many members of the Haileybury community in the crowd. The show is for ages 12+, a ridiculously good time and selling fast!
Ticketing information as well further resources on the show can be found on the following linktree: https://linktr.ee/thebeeptestmusical

Saranya Natarajan Thirumalai Nambi (OH 2017) is in her final year of studying Medicine at Monash University, which is a deviation from her younger self who had aspirations of becoming a vet or astronaut!

Saranya is keeping her mind open about which direction her medical career will take, but currently has interests in obstetrics & gynaecology, psychiatry and intensive care. She recently experienced her first rural placement in Bendigo which she thoroughly enjoyed. In what spare time she has, Saranya loves learning Bharathanatyam (Indian classical dancing) which derived from her love of Hip Hop at Haileybury, Japanese, and experiencing new foods and destinations.
