Maroondah Young Leaders Program
Emma Scealy and Daniella Cosentino represented Tintern Grammar at the recent City of Maroondah Young Leaders Program for a select group of senior school students from across the region. This program presents an opportunity for students to develop a range of interpersonal skills including, leadership, communication, group dynamics, decision making, public speaking, assertiveness, conflict resolution and project management. Families were also invited to attend the Presentation Evening attended by local councillors, which showcased the skills and personal attributes acquired during the week.
Year 10 Examinations
Year 10 students have commenced preparation for their upcoming examinations and they have a Study Day on Friday 27 May. They are encouraged to study at home, but provisions can be made at school if families contact their child’s Mentor. The examination week commences on Monday 30 May and concludes on Friday 3 June. Appropriate full school uniform is required for the week and please note that Tuesday 31 May is the last day that summer uniform can be worn. Rolls are taken at the commencement of each examination and students are not required at school if they do not have an examination. A full briefing about examination procedures will be provided for the students and a copy of the examination timetable is available on the Year 10 page of the Portal.
Year 10 Work Experience Program
The Year 10 Work Experience program is from Tuesday 14 to Friday 17 June. Students will be given final instructions in the week prior and they are also expected to make contact with their employer before the placement to discuss such issues as arrival time and dress code. A package of materials will be sent home shortly that includes a copy of the contract and the two Occupational, Health and Safety certificates that must be given to the employer on the first day.
