2016 Parents Welcome Evening
A lovely night was had by all at our recent Parent Welcome evening. Approximately 70 new and current parents and guardians joined our Principal, Mr Bradley Fry, in the Visual Arts Centre to enjoy drinks and nibbles whilst listening to the wonderful music of our Kelson String quartet and harpist, Adele Bicknell. One of our 2015 School captains, Alfred Kouris and vice captains, Chase Young shared their Tintern experience with the group highlighting the many opportunities Tintern had offered them over the years and how confident and ready they are to take on university life. Thank you to representatives of our community groups who also attended to share and promote their cause to the new and current families. Members of our Executive and level coordinators were also on hand to welcome our families to the new School year.

Ella and Lilly Trevorrow represented Tintern Grammar last Friday at Ayr Hill for Round 1 of the ISJ Interschool Show Jumping Series. This event is a large event where more than 50 schools are represented with over 70 riders in some sections. Both girls jumped extremely well completing the first 2 rounds successfully. Ella and Lilly aim to continue at a future event to complete the series. Well done girls.
Equestrian Display day Friday 18 March
The Friends of Equestrian with the support of the school will be hosting an Equestrian display day on Friday 18 March. This is a fabulous opportunity for the Tintern Equestrian team to demonstrate their sport to the school and to promote Equestrian at Tintern. If you are free please come along at lunchtime (from 12.30pm) on Friday 18 March to support our Equestrian team.
Community Groups AGMs
Look out for the dates and times for all the Community groups’ AGMs. This is a wonderful chance to meet fellow parents and become involved with the School community. The AGM is the official meeting for the year and provides the committees with office bearers and a direction for the year. Visitors attending the AGM are given a broad understanding of the wonderful contribution these groups make to our School. The events and activities run by the various community groups represent a vital contribution to the enhancement of the school experience for our students and in fostering a community atmosphere across the school in support of parents. Everyone is welcome. For more information on how to be involved please contact the Community Relations Office, Mrs Amanda McKenzie on 9879 1543 or Mrs Loraine Allender on 0417 592 064. We look forward to many new faces joining the committees.
