Community Event – Oaks Day at Yarra Glen Races!
The inaugural Tintern Grammar Community Celebration Day was a great success last Thursday as current, past and future families and friends joined us for Oaks Day at the Yarra Glen Races!
As you can see everyone dressed to impress, and we even had a member of the Tintern community place second in the Eastland Fashions on the Field competition! View the full photo gallery.
Thank you to those who attended this event. We look forward to running a Community Celebration Day in 2019!

Tintern Parents Group – supporting our Community
Thank you to the incredible group of volunteers on the Tintern Parents Group Committee, and to all those who have supported their incredible events in 2018. Whether supporting as a volunteer or an attendee some of the highlights from this year include:
- Movie Under the Stars
- Trivia Night
- Spring Garden Tour
- Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Stalls
- Fundraising such as the Photo Albums, Mangos, Entertainment Books etc.
This year the TPG were proud to support a number of causes within Tintern and within our wider community. The Junior School boys and girls had a bush dance to farewell Term 2, enjoying the sounds of the Blackberry Jam Bush Band, which was sponsored by the TPG. The Trivia Night also raised much needed funds for the Anglicare Missions.
Do you live on a main road in the Maroondah, Yarra Valley, Knox or Manningham area?
