Equestrian Team Training Day


On Friday 30 September, during the school holidays, eight members of Tintern’s Equestrian Team went to the Australian Sporting Equine Academy for a training day. In attendance were Jimmy Cox, Olivia Garland, Darcee McCallum, Brooke Thompson, Ella Trevorrow, Lilly Trevorrow, Zoë Classon & Jessica Van Bremen. Darcee’s little sister, Odette was there watching on too!

We broke into small groups and all had two lessons each. Our show jumping lesson was with Adam Wootten on the indoor arena, and the course he had us working on was both technical and fun. We had some very big jumps and some tight tricky turns. We also had a Dressage lesson with Charlotte Dekkers. In this lesson, we got to work on some dressage moves. We all joined together at lunch time and Adam’s dad (from ASEC) cooked a barbecue for all of us. There was plenty of yummy food and we all had a chance to talk about our super lessons. We would like to thank the parents in the Friends of Equestrian Committee for organizing this day for us. We all had a super fun day learning new skills with our horses.

Tintern House Swimming Carnivals 2016

Tintern House Swimming Carnivals were held on October 18th (Boys) & 19th (Girls) in Tintern Pool. Both carnivals were well attended and the mix of traditional and novelty swimming events ensured that everyone was involved in an action packed day.

The newly appointed House Captains did a wonderful job of getting events filled and ensuring that competitors were on time for their events. The day started with House chants and a high level of House spirit was evident throughout each day.

A special thanks to all staff who helped with carnival duties across the two days and to those students who also helped with jobs on each day.

Congratulations to McKie Boys and Watt Girls who were the respective House Champions for 2016.
