Presentation Ball 2020 – An invitation to Year 11 Students

For a number of years, Year 11 students have had the opportunity to take part in the very successful Tintern Grammar Presentation Ball. We are now inviting Year 11 students to become part of the 2020 Presentation Ball.

A booking has been made for Saturday 12 September 2020 at The Centre Ivanhoe, 275 Upper Heidelberg Road, Ivanhoe.

The information booklet can be downloaded here, detailing what is involved to participate in the Presentation Ball program. The booklet must be read closely, so you understand the commitment required.

This event is run by a small group of parent volunteers who spend many hours of work planning this Ball to make it an enjoyable and memorable occasion for all involved. We ask for your cooperation wherever possible.

If any parents would like to assist with the Presentation Ball we would be delighted to hear from you.

Full payment for each Presentee is required by Wednesday 25 March 2020 to secure a place. You must complete the Tintern Grammar Presentation Ball registration and payment through Trybooking:

At this stage the Presentation ball will still be taking bookings, with the understanding that if the event doesn’t progress we will provide full refunds to the participants and their families.
