Class of 2007 Reunion – Saturday 3 March 

Saturday afternoon was a beautiful sunny day for a reunion as the Class of 2007 came together to share memories of their time at Tintern. They enjoyed a campus tour, as well as drinks and nibbles in the Year 9 Courtyard, which looks very different to when they were students here.

Enjoy the gallery below. Follow this link to view the photo gallery: https://www.tintern.vic.edu.au/community/alumni/reunions/
