Welcome to Tintern and ELC BYO Picnic

This year we combined our ELC Welcome to Tintern Event and BYO Picnic out on the Tintern Oval. The warm summer night was just perfect for our families to enjoy their picnic dinner and meet others from the Tintern community.

To make up for past, cancelled and postponed events, we added a few extra activities to add a little sparkle to the night. The children enjoyed showing their families how they could balance and jump on the mini obstacle course. They loved snuggling with the rabbits, pigs and guinea pigs at the petting farm and Tom the ice cream man arrived with his ice cream truck just in time for dessert.   

It was great to see the families being able to connect with one another, catch up on a more personal level, sit back and relax. The Staff appreciated getting to know the families and strengthening ties between home and school.

Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves at the event and it was warming to see the families being able to connect after a somewhat restricted past two years.

Thank you to the ELC Staff for helping organise the event and a special thanks to the Year Twelve Leaders for helping out on the night.
