Welcome back to Term 2! We have hit the ground running in the first two weeks and there is a buzz of excitement about the upcoming events this term holds for us. Our first big event was the Tintern Grammar Fair and what a wonderful community event it was. A very big thank-you to all parents who volunteered their time in the lead up the event, on and after the day. It was a most enjoyable day and the atmosphere was terrific!
Year 7s have begun learning their House Cheersports routines and preparing for the competition in June. Likewise, Year 9 girls have begun to develop their ideas and choreography for House Dancing. On top of this, each House has been busily practising their House Music songs!!! House competitions and activities add great life and energy to our school and are wonderful opportunities for students to work with groups outside of their friendship and class groups. It also allows for interaction between students from different year levels and I’m really pleased to see the positive approach students have demonstrated towards these activities.
Selected Year 8 students have begun the ‘Writers Workshop’ and on Friday Year 7 and 8 students participated in a World Music Incursion. Girls studying the Year 9 Outdoor Education Elective have been developing their bike riding skills and our Equestrian Team competed last weekend at the Tintern Horse Trials at Wandin.
We have much to look forward to in the coming weeks with the Cathedral Service on Sunday 7 May and Jazz Night on Saturday 27 May.
