Welcome to Term 4, 2021
Welcome to Term 4, 2021. This year has not been what most of us expected, as our 7th Melbourne lockdown continues. We were excited to have our Year 12 students back on campus, and look forward to the staged return of our students.
The Tintern Parents Group are pleased to be offering two social distanced fundraisers this term; our annual Mango Drive and the Second-hand book sale in partnership with I Love Books. Further information on both is included below.
We are also seeking volunteers for the Friends of Equestrian and the Presentation Ball committee. Read more below, or contact us in Community Relations, 9845 7777 or email@example.com.

TPG Mango Drive 2021
We have Fresh North Queensland Mangoes delivered direct from the farm to Tintern Grammar, ready for collection. Mangoes should arrive at school late November. Once we have a confirmed date, we will be in touch to arrange a drive through collection time.
Cost is only $20 per tray, filled by weight of approximately 4.5kgs, which will contain a mix of the equivalent of either 8 large mangoes or 14 small ones.
Please note that due to the unprecedented crop failure of Kensington Pride Mangoes this year, the trays are smaller than previous years and have been reduced in price accordingly.
Place your order today, as quantities are strictly limited!
Orders are open until the 29 October 2021, unless sold out prior.
Please place your order here: https://events.humanitix.com/tpg-mango-drive-2021

Friends of Equestrian
Due to a significant number of parents finishing up this year, the Friends Of Equestrian Committee is looking for new volunteers to continue the 21 year legacy and join the committee.
This is an excellent opportunity to be involved and make a significant contribution to Equestrian activities at Tintern Grammar.
Presentation Ball Committee
Are you interested in being involved in the Presentation Ball Committee? An opportunity has opened up to join the Committee and take this traditional pastime into a new era.
Offered each year to our Year 11 students, it is a wonderful opportunity for them to receive modern dance instruction whilst having fun and experiencing a formal presentation to family and friends.
If you are interested in being a part of this Committee, please contact Di Lacey in Community Relations on 9845 7777 or email@example.com.
TPG Second-hand Book Sale 2021
Thank you to everyone who ordered a Picture Plate. It has been wonderful to see all the artwork as it is uploaded. We will be in touch once we have an arrival date.
Interested in taking on the role of Parent Representative?
Wanting to continue as Parent Rep for your 2021 Class or Year Level?
Parent Representative are a liaison between parents/guardians and the school. Informing parents about activities planned either by Tintern, our community groups or within the class or year level, such as fundraisers or events.
Parent Reps also organise class or year level functions to provide parents with the opportunity of meeting and socialising in a relaxed atmosphere. It would be a great opportunity for class groups to connect, while supporting our local community cafes and restaurants still recovering from the lockdowns.
We greatly appreciate the time and commitment given by our Parent Reps. This role is suitable for Parents or Guardians who are in the workforce or who undertake home responsibilities. It can be shared between many people, or looked after by one person.
A special thank you to our wonderful team of Parent Representatives from 2021. Though the year was again not what we expected, with the cancellation of many events, we greatly appreciated their efforts in unusual times.
If you would like to volunteer to be your Year Level’s Parent Representative in 2022, would like further information, or happy to continue in your current role, contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 03 9845 7877.
Thank you to Carole Shen (Year 5 Boys) who organised a catch up over the school holidays!
