Career’s Night 2023 – Find Your Future Self

The Tintern Grammar Career’s Night is back again for 2023 on Thursday 18 May! An email will go out to families with students in Years 9 to 12, with information on how to book, and profiles of our Alumni Career Mentors. All Tintern Grammar secondary school students are welcome to attend.

Bookings are for 10 minute time slots and limited to 2 students per session (with 4 sessions available across the evening). Please ensure you book as soon as possible, as places do fill up fast.

We will also have six Universities in attendance, giving our attendees an opportunity to speak directly with them.

Any questions can be directed to Di Lacey or Tegan Martin in Community Relations, 9845 7877 or communityrelations@tintern.vic.edu.au.

TPG Presentation Ball – registrations open now!

The Presentation Ball Coordinators and the School are delighted to offer our Year 11 students the opportunity to participate in our Annual Presentation Ball, to be held on Saturday 9 September 2023 at The Centre Ivanhoe.

Dance classes will be held in the School gym and start in Term 3 on Thursday afternoons from 4pm to 6.45pm mostly.

We believe this is a wonderful opportunity for young people to receive modern dance instruction whilst having fun and experiencing a formal presentation to family and friends, often their only opportunity to have access to such an event.

The volunteer Presentation Ball Coordinators will be working hard to create a memorable and fun event for the Presentees, their families and friends and we look forward to the enthusiasm and support of all involved.

For further information, download the booklet here.

Please enjoy a short teaser video highlighting the dance classes and the evening of the Ball:

We look forward to working together towards ‘An Enchanted Evening’.

Seeking Volunteers for our Open Day BBQ

There is only 4 more sleeps until our annual Open Day, this Saturday 6 May.

Could you help us on the day? We are looking for Volunteers to assist with greeting attendees as they arrive or working at the BBQ (shifts from 9am to 1.30pm).  Attendees appreciate the opportunity to speak with current families, to give them a broader understanding of Tintern as the prospective school for their child.

If you are able to assist, please book online through this link, or by selecting the QR Code below. We would be very grateful for your support!

Please keep in mind that you will need a current Working With Children Check to volunteer on the day, and contact Di Lacey or Tegan Martin in Community Relations if you have any questions.

Parent Representatives 2023

Thank you to the many parents and guardians who have volunteered to act as the Parent Representatives for their Class or Year Level in 2023.

We are still seeking a Year Level Parent Representative for Year 11. If you are interested, please get in touch with Di Lacey on 9845 7893 or by email to communityrelations@tintern.vic.edu.au

Parent Representatives 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 social gatherings, fundraisers or events. We greatly appreciate the time and commitment given by our Parent Reps. Parent Reps also organise class or year level functions to provide parents with the opportunity of meeting and socialising in a relaxed atmosphere. It is a great opportunity for class groups to connect, while supporting our local community cafes and restaurants still recovering from the lockdowns.
