ELC Nature Walk and BYO Picnic
Our ELC Community welcomed in the new school year with our annual Nature Walk & BYO Picnic Dinner. This event invited children and their families to explore Tintern’s beautiful grounds before gathering as one on the oval for an evening of fun and laughter.
The Nature Walk had families exploring what Tintern has to offer beyond the ELC which included meeting Mrs DeVos and Mr Fry at the main oval to collect their clues and goodie bags. The first stop was a familiar place to collect bubbles… the ELC! Then families were directed to visit the Junior Schools, the frog mural near the Cullen Library, visit the Persian sheep near Mr Fry’s office, the water feature in the Year 9 Courtyard, our windmill opposite the Speagle Science Centre and finally the Tintern Compass in front of the oval.
Once the walk was completed our community gathered together to reflect on their journey around the School. Just when you thought the evening couldn’t get any better an ice cream truck arrived for all to enjoy.
Such occasions as the Nature Walk show us just how strong our community is and reminds us of how important coming together and embracing one other is as we continue our year together.
Moments like these will be nurtured for a lifetime, especially when there’s ice cream involved!
