House Athletics Carnival
On Tuesday 20 April Tintern Grammar held the annual House Athletics Carnival at Bill Sewart Athletics Track in East Burwood. With the carnival not being held in 2020 due to COVID-19, both staff and students were excited for the carnival.
With the weather forecast being for a cold day with rain predicted in the afternoon, everyone was hoping that it would hold off until after the carnival. The atmosphere during the carnival was amazing as students competed with determination to ensure that they scored as many points for their house as possible.
Staff and students supported their houses throughout the day and the scoring was extremely close for most of the day, with only a small margin between first and fourth place. Around lunchtime, the rain set in for the afternoon and unfortunately due to the worsening track conditions, the carnival had to be abandoned after the 200m events.

Victorian Interschool State Equestrian Championships 2021.
During the second week of the April school holidays, Tintern Grammar had 6 riders representing the school at the Victiorian interschool state championships. These 6 riders, Lillian Trevorrow (year 12), Keeley Thomas (year 11), Amelia Harvey (year 8), Mia Heinrich (Year 8), Aisha Heinrich (year 6) and Maddison Bailey (year 6), have been working hard for the last 12 months to obtain the qualifications needed to compete at an inter school state level.
This event held at the Werribee park national equestrian centre is something aspired to by most competitive interschool equestrian riders across the state. The event hosts over 700 riders from more than 300 schools both secondary and primary. This fun event caters to many different equestrian disciplines, ensuring that Tintern Grammar was represented well in all phases.
I was very proud to be a part of the 2021 team and enjoyed watching and cheering on my fellow teammates. We all worked hard during the week to achieve some amazing results whilst having fun during our downtime at the event.
