Friends of Equestrian

The Tintern Friends of Equestrian Committee is a parent led group of equine enthusiasts who gather to support the children of Tintern in their equestrian pursuits. We organise training days in all disciplines and run the prestigious Tintern Horse Trials.  Of which many Tintern students have been able to benefit from in the past.

For the FOE to continue offering this support and organising opportunities for our ‘horsey’ community, we are in desperate need of new faces.

A number of riders are now nearing the end of their Tintern days, and with them, their devoted parents who have been invaluable on the committee, are also moving on. I am sad to say that without new people joining the committee, we will not be able to continue.  After 22 years it would be a shame to close it now.

Please if you have any interest joining us, please get in touch with either Sherie on 0484750500 or Nelaana to discuss how you can help. 

 

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 communityrelations@tintern.vic.edu.au.
