Bake Sale – donations needed!
All families are welcome and invited to participate in the Tintern Grammar cake stall. Junior Schools will have had a paper plate and food ingredient labels sent home with their child this week.
They include detailed instructions about ingredients and labelling your baked goods and how and when to return them to school for Fair Day.
In the past Junior School families have been very generous in providing baked items and we would be grateful for your lovely cakes/slices/biscuits and jams again this year.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Grade 3 Stall Co-ordinator Amanda Henshaw on 0409 105 528 or email@example.com
Please be aware that the Bus bay will be open on Fair day, but spaces will be very limited. The Pedestrian gates will be open on all sides.
Remember when parking in side streets to be mindful of not blocking driveways, and any council parking restrictions.

Are you Spring Cleaning?
For the 2019 School Fair our parents and students will be running ‘recycling/reusing/upcycling’ stalls featuring second-hand clothing, books and toys. Please consider donating any suitable items to the school and spreading the word amongst neighbours and friends. In the past they have been fabulous fundraisers, and an opportunity to find some rare and wonderful bargains.
We ask that all donations are in a good clean condition ready for sale. All items can be boxed or bagged up and dropped off as follows:
- Second-hand books are to be dropped to the corridor running between learning enhancement and Kennedy Cottage
- Second-hand clothing and toys will need to be dropped outside the old boarding house under the cover and Tintern staff will move inside.
- New items should be dropped in the hallway in Kennedy Cottage.
Thank you for all of your donations!
Fair Sponsorship Opportunities
In 2017, our FAIR raised in excess of $50,000 towards a solar project for our redeveloped 21st Century Science wing. Work on this project is nearing completion. This year, with your help, we hope to continue our sustainable focus redirecting our 2019 FAIR fundraising dollars to wind power and more solar options.
The Fair is held every two years, and previous Fairs held at Tintern have attracted more than 5,000 people. In the evening, we have an impressive fireworks display that attracts additional guests. Many families and business owners attend the fair and come from the local and surrounding community. This creates a unique opportunity to showcase your goods and services or your business.
If you would like to donate goods or services to be included in the silent auction, or for further information on sponsorship please read the flyer below, or contact the Community Relations on 03 9845 7877 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
