Posted on November 21, 2017 / Senior College
With transition classes for next year’s Year 11 and Year 12 students occurring this week, we have come to the end of the 2017 academic year for current Senior College students. Our current Year 9 students will commence Transition into the Senior College this Wednesday and will have four days of Transition into Year 10 classes from Thursday 23 to Tuesday 28 November inclusive.
I join our Year Level Co-ordinators in reminding all students that the “holiday homework” that will be set in the Transition classes is due to be completed by the first scheduled lesson for each subject in 2018. Transition material is available on the Portal should students have missed any of the sessions. A reminder that classes resume for next year’s Year 11 and Year 12 students on Monday 29 January; whilst, next year’s Year 10 students will commence classes on Tuesday 30 January.
A number of Senior College students will soon be heading off on Exchange programs in France and Germany – I wish them and the accompanying staff an enjoyable time as they immerse themselves in their chosen second language.
Our finishing Year 12 students have their final official School function, their Valedictory Dinner, this coming Friday at the beautiful venue – Leonda by the Yarra. This is an evening of celebration of the completing of schooling (and Year 12 examinations!) and provides the opportunity for students, their families and staff to enjoy each other’s company and to celebrate not only this year but each student’s personal journey at Tintern Grammar.
I take this opportunity to wish all current Senior College students and their families a safe and happy holiday period. The Year Level Co-ordinators, Pastoral Mentors and our new Head of Senior College, Ms Oriana Constable, look forward to greeting our current Years 9, 10 and 11 students on their return next year.
With kind regards and my thanks to all students, families and staff I have worked with across my years at Tintern Grammar and in particular, to current members of our Senior College community,
