As we reach the half way mark of Term 4 there’s still plenty of action to come in the Girls Middle School. On Thursday 17 November we will welcome our 2017 Year 7 students to Tintern at their final Orientation Day. It is a very exciting time for families as the girls prepare themselves for Year 7 and throughout the day the girls will get to meet their Form group and Pastoral Mentor for 2017 as well as take part in transition and House activities.
Our Year 9s are busily preparing for examinations and beyond that can look forward to Summer Expeditions 28 November – 2 December and Year 10 transition from 5-7 December.
Our Year 7 and 8 students will be taking part in the eYp or ‘End of Year Program’ from 5-7 December. Throughout the three days girls will be working in House groups on a comprehensive and engaging project. The project topics are still ‘top secret’ but there’s going to be plenty of opportunity for students to demonstrate their skills in creativity, teamwork and collaboration as well as test their thinking skills. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
Girls is Year 8 are currently asked to nominate for 2017 Middle School Leadership Positions. There are various positions that girls can be involved in; Middle School Captain, Middle School Vice-Captain, Middle School Leader, House Captain, Sport Captain, Music and Drama Captain and Community Service Captain. I hope to see many expressions of interest for these positions as leadership is a great opportunity for individuals to develop themselves and experience fulfilment in their school life.
It was fantastic to see so many students representing Tintern at the Maroondah Festival on Sunday 6 November with performances from the Concert Band and Saxophone Ensemble on a glorious Spring day. It was a fabulous opportunity to showcase our students and their musical talents.
