The Celebration Induction Dinner on Saturday night was a fabulous evening with all sections of our Tintern community coming together to celebrate and honour our 10 inaugural inductees into the Tintern Grammar Avenue of Excellence. The CM Wood Performance Centre was sparkling in hues of blue and silver as the guests arrived for drinks and canapés. Our Tintern Concert choir dazzled us with their tunes before we moved to the official induction proceedings.
A very big thank you to Karen Gately nee Mitchell (YG 1988) who was a wonderfully engaging MC, Canterbury Rd Flower Gallery for the beautiful flower table centre pieces, The Essential Caterer who provided the delicious canapés and meals, photographer alumna Zoe Murdoch (YG 1996) of Zoe Murdoch – Photography, videographer alumnus Tim Churchward (YG 2010) and Lachlan Campbell for his technical management of the event.
Thanks are also extended to our Director of Music, Mrs Bezaire who organised a wonderful musical program for the evening, alumni TJ Lacey (YG 2011) and Kathleen Yardley (YG 2008), who was accompanied by Rhianwen Bramble, and the students in the Clementson Piano Quartet, Kelson String Quartet, Tintern Grammar Concert Choir and our 2017 School Pianist Molly Fleming, for their wonderful performances throughout the evening.
