Movie Under the Stars – SING!
Tintern Grammar was filled with the sound of singing on Saturday night as the School community gathered to enjoy Sing, this year’s feature of the TPG Movie Under The Stars. The night was a great success with just under 400 attendees enjoying the movie and the delicious snacks on offer from our parent community and student fundraising groups.
Thank you to everyone for being so understanding when last-minute weather changes moved us indoors into the CM Wood Centre. Our strong Tintern community spirit was in action as all hands on deck made the transition effortless and efficient.
Special thank you to our wonderful business sponsors:
