The annual Year 11 Conference was held at Phillip Island from Wednesday 2 – Friday 4 March. The Conference was highly successful and thoroughly enjoyed by all students who attended. We had excellent presentations from a variety of excellent speakers about leadership opportunities and overcoming personal challenges. Students were also given the opportunity to enjoy various activities which included: Surfing, Laser Strike and, of course, the Penguin Parade.
A highlight for many students and staff was the return of former Tintern Grammar student, Michael Ashfield, with his band – Move on, Be Strong – who performed at the evening concert and dance.
Until the end of Term 1 our Year 11 Pastoral Mentor Leaders will be working with their respective Mentor groups to decide upon Term 2 Community Service/Volunteering/Charity/Fundraising activities suitable for either individual Mentor groups, or the entire year level, which will have an emphasis on community and social awareness.
