‘This is Me’ – Georgia Hayden (YG 2015) and TJ Lacey (YG 2011)

There was much excitement in the Boys’ Junior School Monday 12 February as we welcomed alumni Georgia Hayden (YG 2015) and TJ Lacey (YG 2011) to assembly to share their ‘This Is Me’ journeys. Georgia’s talent and passion led her to be cast as part of the famous Moulin Rouge and TJ’s wonderful character, drive and passion that amongst other achievements saw him starring in the Dance Academy TV series and movie, and the lead role in Strictly Ballroom the Musical. TJ and Georgia spoke to the students about their journeys from Tintern Grammar to performers with careers they love. They also gave advice to the boys to follow their passions, be resilient and never give up on their dreams.

Thank you TJ and Georgia for joining us to share your inspiring ‘This Is Me’ story.
