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 at the old boarding house (behind the uniform shop) from the first day of school next year until Fair Day.


Do you live on a main road in the Maroondah, Yarra Valley, Knox or Manningham area?

Would you be willing for us to put an advertising sign in your front yard to help promote our Fair?

If so, please get in contact – 9845 7877 or fair@tintern.vic.edu.au!

Fair logo winner announced 

Congratulations to Nicolani Susanto in Year 11 who has been named the winner of the 2019 Fair logo competition. The committee remarked that they loved Nicolani’s colourful design, found it to be great both in small and large sizes, and it expressed a lovely festive feel. Congratulations Nicolani!

Fair Convenor Amanda McKenzie was pleased to congratulate Nicolani at an assembly last week and present her with the winner’s prize for the Fair logo competition. Congratulations again Nicolani!

Here is the winning design!
