On Friday 19 August Tintern Grammar will host the Australian College of Educators (ACE) Sylvia Walton Oration and Awards Evening.
Dr Sylvia J Walton AO, MAICD was Principal of Tintern Schools from 1982 to 2005 (Tintern Girls’ Grammar School, which was founded in 1877, and Southwood Boys’ Grammar School, which she established in 1999).
The evening involves a College dinner and the conferring of significant ACE Victoria Awards, including the Sir James Darling Award and the College Medal.
Mrs Walton was named in the 2003 Australia Day Honours List for her service to education. She was awarded the second highest order, Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia, in recognition of her leadership in education at the secondary and tertiary levels, particularly through research into specialised curriculum and training programs, as an administrator, and as a contributor to the development of education policy in both government and non-government sectors.
We feel especially fortunate and honoured to be hosting the event and to contribute to the proud historical legacy of the Sylvia Walton Oration and Awards Evening.
