Mother’s Day Stall
The Tintern Parents Group Mother’s Day Stall was once again a wonderful success. Held on Wednesday 10 May the students had a fantastic time carefully selecting gifts for the special women in their lives. Many of them couldn’t contain their excitement and made sure they spent every last cent to ensure Mother’s Day was extra special.
Thank you to all of the amazing volunteers who gave their time in the preparation for the stall, at the stall and afterwards. It was greatly appreciated.
Giant Tintern Fair Reveal and Thank You Evening
Wednesday 10 May saw a number of volunteers, sponsors and staff get together for an evening of celebration to officially thank all of those who assisted with the 2017 Giant Fair. From the Committee, to the Stall Co-ordinators, our wonderful sponsors and the many others who assisted in many different ways, this was an opportunity to congratulate everyone on their hard work and dedication.
This night also saw the grand reveal of the total profit from our Fair. Amanda McKenzie and Kylie Spears as the Fair Convenors were proud to announce that in 2017 the Fair raised a total of $52,774.28!
A special mention was made to the Hot Chips Stall for their profit of $3,413.55.
We would once again like to thank the Fair Convenor Amanda McKenzie and Assistant Convenor Kylie Spears. Your dedication, expertise and tireless efforts were instrumental in ensuring the success of this and the many other Tintern Fairs you have overseen. It was with sadness that we farewell Kylie from this role in 2017. If you are interested in undertaking this position for the 2019 Fair, please contact Community Relations.
