So here we are again at the beginning of another school year. For the Year 12’s, it’s their final year before leaping into whatever lies at the end of a gruelling year of hard work and study, and it is also a big year for all other Tintern Grammar Students who have begun a new journey in their new year level, especially the new students who have started at Tintern this year!
Many changes have occurred in the school over the holidays including a brand new Senior College, which all students are very pleased about, new leisure spaces for the use of all students outside the library, and the old name of “Tintern Schools” has been replaced with “Tintern Grammar”. Already, planning and preparing has begun for the annual Cathedral service, and many other fun events for this term such as Valentine’s Day, Athletics day and the World’s Greatest Shave. For the students, and the teachers, we are looking forward to having Mr Fry with us for his first whole year, and for the many ideas he has for our school. We hope that Term 1 is a great one and we look forward to seeing what Tintern has to offer us this year.
Our Leadership team certainly made a splash at the assembly on Day 1 with this dramatic entrance.
