Avenue of Excellence – Induction Celebration – An exciting evening!
A wonderful evening was enjoyed by all who attended the 2019 Induction Celebration for the Avenue of Excellence. The Tintern Grammar Avenue of Excellence was established in 2017 to mark the School’s 140th anniversary, and to formally celebrate and honour the outstanding achievements and contributions of extraordinary Alumni in their field of endeavour.
The Induction Ceremony saw us welcome Janine Kirk AM, a Business, Education, Health and Community Leader, and Cheryl Batagol PSM is an Environmental and Sustainability Leader. To read about these incredible women please visit: https://www.tintern.vic.edu.au/community/avenue-of-excellence/
