Online Parent Group Catch Ups

With the current Social Distancing requirements it has been almost impossible for our parents to catch up. Some of our Parent Representatives have been organizing online meet ups via Zoom, House Party, Wats App or any number of other social apps. Look out for communications regarding any year level catch ups for your class.

Although this looks very different to the dinners, morning teas and mini golf sessions that many were planning at the beginning of the year, it is equally important that as parents and guardians you stay connected with each other, as well as your children stay connected with their school and friends.

Please remember if you hear of any distress, concerns or questions within your year level, please do not hesitate to let your immediate class room teacher/pastoral mentor know or feel welcome to reach out directly to your Head of School. If you are not sure, you are always welcome to call or email me as well ( or 9845 7893). I am working both from home and in the office so any messages left on my phone will be received, so please feel free to leave me a message if you do prefer to phone in.

We still have a number of junior school year groups along with the Year 12 cohort, who do not have ‘official’ parent reps. If you have a son or daughter these years please let me know if you, or someone you know could help out, or you may know of someone already doing the role.













As they saying goes “We are all in this together” so please do not hesitate to reach out if you need.

Friends of Equestrian

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Friends of Equestrian Bushfire Appeal. The funds will be donated to Warriors 4 Wildlife to help buy much needed feed, hay and medical supplies.

Although many Equestrian Events have currently been cancelled due to safety concerns, our Equestrian students were able to represent Tintern at a number of events early this year. To read more please select here.

Presentation Ball 2020 – An invitation to Year 11 Students – Bookings extended to the 27 April

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 Monday 27 April 2020 to secure a place. Both partners 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 proceed we will provide full refunds to the participants and their families.
