Community Matters

Welcome to Term 3. The Community Relations team hope you all enjoyed a break from the usual routine. Term 3 is already shaping up to be a very busy term for our Community Groups; Presentation Ball classes, Spring Celebration, reunions for our past students and of course, Father’s Day stalls for our younger students. If you would like to get involved with any of our community groups please contact Di Lacey in the Community Relations Office.

Community Group Fundraising

Photo Album

The TPG is also continuing to offer beautiful quality made customised ‘buckram’ binders for only $70. A saving of $20 as they normally retail for $90. The albums are available in both Navy and Burgundy and feature the school crest and name printed in silver on the front cover and come complete with 10 transparent sheet inserts.

The albums are great for storing:
– The official school photos
– Certificates
– Naplan and ICAS results
– Sports and performer ribbons
– Artwork
– Programs from concerts, sports days and special assemblies
– Photos
– Newsletter clippings
– Your own scrapbook creations (as the pages are 30cm x 30cm standard scrapbook size)

In fact, if you think of it like a filing cabinet of memories, over the years it builds up into quite a treasure! Samples can be viewed in the uniform shop and all orders are now taken at this link through trybooking

2017 Garden Tour save the date Friday 27 October 2017

The 2017 Spring Garden tour will once again be running on Friday 27 October – mark this date in your calendars now. Please contact the Community Relations office if you have any venue ideas or would like to assist our volunteer coordinator, Lisa Vecchio.

Friends of Equestrian

Our next Friends of Equestrian Parents’ Meeting will be held in Kennedy Cottage (near the Tintern pool complex) on Tuesday 15 August at 7.30pm. We would like to invite all parents of riders to consider joining the committee and supporting our riders and the hardworking parents already in this group. Those of you who attend our Horse Trials know what a huge event it is, and the committee is in need of further support from the parents of current riders to ensure that the students continue to benefit from the Equestrian activities at Tintern. At the meeting on 15 August, all committee positions for 2017/2018 will be open for re-election and there will be discussions around forming sub-committees for the Horse Trials. Please make a note of this date in your diary. We would love to see some new faces, which we hope will translate into extra hands to share the load in 2018!

Please RSVP to the Equestrian Coordinator Mrs Alison Bezaire, to let us know if you are planning to attend.
