From the Head of Senior College

Celebration Evening

As has been previously mentioned, our Celebration Evening was indeed a wonderful celebration of all the wonderful achievements of our secondary students from Years 7 – 12 and in particular a wonderful farewell for this year’s Year 12 class of 2016. I know that many of the families who attended felt that this year’s Celebration Evening was most certainly one of the very best we have had. I would have to agree that items such as: the Combined Orchestras’ performance of Carmen Vitae; the combined Choir performance of Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, with its fabulous solo by Heidi Ruckert; and, the School Musical cast singing the rousing signature song Oklahoma!, would all qualify as highlights of the evening.

On behalf of all members of the Tintern Grammar Community I would like to congratulate all students who were recognised with awards and I am delighted to publish the names of those students who received “Special School Awards” – the recipients of these awards are not shown in the program as we keep these awards as closely guarded “secrets” until they are announced on the evening.
