Tintern House Swimming Carnivals
Tintern boys and girls House Swimming Carnivals were held on 20 and 21 October and both proved to be exciting, action packed, fun filled days.
Student involvement was exceptional on each day and the newly appointed House Captains should be commended for the great support they engendered in their Houses.
Traditional swimming events and novelty relay events were equally supported throughout the day and participation levels were of the highest we have achieved.

Girls House Swimming
Last Wednesday, all of the girls from Year 7-11 came together to have their annual swimming carnival. The House spirit was high, with plenty of cheering and excitement throughout the day. The novelty races appeared as a common favourite, with plenty of laughing and teamwork. Everyone gave it their all, trying their best to earn their house some points. At the end of the day, the points between Houses was very close, but Dann Watt came out on top, winning for the first time since 2005.

Boys Secondary House Swimming
Congratulations to Dann House who have claimed ‘Back To Back’ Championships in our Secondary Boys House Swimming. In what was a most enjoyable and active day, all boys are to be congratulated on their efforts and involvement, with the small number of boys who were unable to swim due to injury, still involving themselves by assisting actively during the carnival. Special thanks to Mr Jurey for his organisation of the event.
T20 Blast Cricket Challenge
Two teams of boys participated in the annual T20 Blast Cricket Challenge at Yarra Valley last Friday.
Both teams were undefeated during the round robin stage, and yet despite this, could only play off for third, due to a ‘technicality’ regarding total runs (both teams had less runs than two other undefeated schools, from different pools and hence were relegated to a battle for third). Our A team again beat their opposition, finishing third, whilst our B team lost their final to finish fourth. Both teams were the highest placed Independent Schools. Congratulations to the following boys for their outstanding efforts, and especially their terrific sportsmanship and attitude.
A Team: Fred Lever, Harry O’Brien, Jake Stubbs, Archer Rostron, Connor Nancarrow, Matt Anderson, Harry Harvey and Dylan Cleal
B Team: Lochie Graham, Yuvraj Pandher, Aidan Gillis, Raman Wensor, Riley Turnbull, Elliott Corcoran, Craig Bonnington, Zack Crowe, James Manson and Krisshnaa Kannan
A team of Year 8 boys competed in a Touch Football Gala Day on Wednesday 28 October. Our boys were brilliant, finishing fourth overall and losing only to teams in Year levels above them.
