Tintern Senior Girls Indoor Cricket Premiers 2017
Congratulations to our Senior Girls Indoor Cricket team whom defeated Billanook College 156 runs to 100 runs in the EISM final on Wednesday 22 March. The girls were able to turn their pre-match nerves into a faultless performance and a comfortable win. The team remained undefeated throughout the season and their Coach – Fraser Kenny and Team Manager – Ms Ord were full of praise for their sportsmanship and support for each other during the season.
The team consisted of Grace Power, Kirsty Clark, Lorna Clark, Emma Maynard, Olivia Adkins, Gemma Bettess, Ruby Earl, Sophie Glasson, Jemma Thornton and Carly Wansbrough. Congratulations to Olivia Adkins who was awarded Player of the Match.
It is a tribute to the girls’ versatility that, not only did they excel on the sports field, but six of the team were also involved in opening night of the school musical, Hairspray, a few hours later. Grace Power performing an exceptional lead-role.
Equestrian Team Demonstration Day a huge success!
Last Friday 24 March, under sunny skies, the Equestrian Team had the opportunity to demonstrate their skills to the whole school on the hockey oval at lunchtime. The day was a great success thanks to the efforts and time of the maintenance team, who helped with the management and setting up of the event, and the Friends of Equestrian Committee who organised the day. Poverty Project ran a very successful bake sale to coincide with the demonstration, raising over $600 for their efforts. Thank you to all who organised this also! Thanks must also go to Mrs Bezaire, our Equestrian Coordinator, for her help on and in the lead up to the day.
All the students enjoyed showing off their ponies to their friends, and it was lovely to see the smiles on the students’ faces as they shared with the school community what their sport is all about!
