Congratulations to Breanna Turnbull
Breanna competed at the 2017 All Schools Track and Field Championships representing Tintern Grammar over the weekend and she was awarded a silver medal in the Under 17 years Javelin. This is an outstanding achievement and Breanna has qualified for the Australian Junior Athletics Championships to be held in Sydney next March. She has all our best wishes and support for a busy period ahead in preparation for such a major event.

Year 10s have entered an intense time of examination revision this week and a reminder that the final day to return replies for The Year 10 Social is Thursday 9 November.
