Community Group Fundraising
Time is running out to order your Tintern Roses for Christmas! If you are interested in purchasing one please contact Di Lacey or Tegan Martin in Community Relations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or 9845 7877 to arrange collection.
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
– Naplan and ICAS results
– Sports and performer ribbons
– Programs from concerts, sports days and special assemblies
– 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.
The Entertainment books are offered for purchase through the School. The Entertainment™ Book, and the Entertainment™ Digital Membership, are your guide to the most popular restaurants, attractions, shopping, travel and more, all with valuable up to 50% off and 2-for-1 offers. The book is current from purchase until the end of May 2018.

Munch with the Musos
To end the musical calendar, Tintern Grammar’s annual Friends of Music Munch with the Musos was held on Sunday 26 November. This concert celebrates the talents of musicians spanning the entire school – this year involving, among many other ensembles, both junior and senior school choirs, the intermediate and senior jazz bands, and a monumental performance of Karl Jenkin’s Palladio starring all string players from the ELC to year 12. Preparing for this finale item was an enormous effort lead by Head of Strings Tim Veldman, supported by other staff, and it paid off; performing alongside peers and younger string players was rewarding and exciting. As well as festive music, the event provided time for socialising, eating, reflection on the past year, and a familial atmosphere that wouldn’t be possible without the incredible organisational efforts of the parents on the Friends of Music committee. On behalf of the performers, audience, and all members of the music community, I thank them, and the amazing music staff who lead each ensemble, for supporting this event year after year.
