Reunion Festival 2019

We were very proud to host almost 200 alumni at our Reunion Festival on Saturday 15 June. Alumni from year groups 1999, 1994, 1989, 1984, 1979 and 1974 celebrated with an eventful afternoon at Tintern; touring the school, enjoying drinks and canapés and reminiscing with their peers.

The atmosphere was electric on the day, with the excited chatter continuing well into the night at local and private venues for dinner and more celebration activities.

Thank you to everyone who attended or contributed on the day. Our special thanks to those alumni who travelled from regional and interstate locations and to the volunteers who gave their time to assist. A special mention is due to the wonderful student ambassadors who gave up some of their Saturday to tour the alumni around our campus.
