Find Your Future Self!
Our first ever Tintern Careers Night was a wonderful success. With 44 Alumni Advisors in attendance on the night to speak with almost 200 students and parents; it was a positive night for all involved.
The Alumni in attendance ranged from more recent graduates who were studying at University or TAFE, to those who are working in careers they love, or taking time out to explore different career options and gain work experience. Our students had the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with alumni who share their interests and passion, and they came prepared with questions about their journey.
Thank you to all the wonderful Alumni who attended the evening. Your willingness to share your time and expertise with the current Tintern students was incredible and we are very grateful.
Thank you also to the students and their families who attended. Your enthusiasm and consideration on the night was greatly appreciated by all.
If you are interested in learning more about some of the Alumni who attended please visit the Past Students section where we will be featuring some of the profiles over the upcoming issues.
