Welcome back to the Class of 1957, 1962, 1967 and the Hawthorn Years!
Today saw the return of over 70 Tintern Grammar Alumni, with the youngest graduating 50 years ago, and the eldest an amazing 82 years ago (Class of 1935).
It was a lovely day filled with delicious food and drinks, as well as a truly wonderful performance by our very own Cooper Choir. Many of the attendees braved the hot weather and toured the school with some of our Year 9 students. Enjoy a selection of photos from today’s reunion below.
