News from Year 12

As Term 3 comes to an end for Year 12 students so have the majority of SACs and other internal assessment. This will come as a great relief and perhaps some sadness for many students as it means their Year 12 journey is nearly finished. Although most examinable content has been covered, in the first few weeks of Term 4 teachers will be providing students with valuable revision work, examination tips and techniques. Although this revision period will be important for their academic success, it is also an important time for students to spend with their friends and peers. They should make the most of this final opportunity to see their friends on a daily basis and to reflect on their time at Tintern Grammar.

Last week the Year 12 students took part in their final House event; the House Cross Country. It was a great afternoon and fantastic to see so many eager participants. Congratulations to Butterss Cross who were victorious on the day, but also to all of the Year 12 House Captains who have done a fine job this year leading their respective Houses. This important role is one that can be challenging but also very rewarding.

All Year 12 families should have recently received information regarding ticketing for the Valedictory Dinner on Wednesday 21 November at Leonda by the Yarra. For families wishing to charge the tickets to their school account you will need to ensure this is done by Friday 14 September. After this date payment can still be made by cash, a cheque made payable to Tintern Grammar or by credit card deduction.
