From the Principal

The complex world of parties, me, and my child!!

While the birthdays and other parties of our children are joyous, fun-filled occasions in their earlier years, the oncoming of adolescence and the approach to adulthood brings significant challenges to these events. As parents we are understandably concerned about the safety and health of our children and the media regularly presents the consequences of poor alcohol-related decisions,  enough to concern any caring parent. As we approach the school holidays, the end of school for our Year 12 students, and just the celebration of life, it may be worth giving some thought to how to mitigate and manage risk for our children and ourselves.

Adolescent parties generate pressure from our own children on to us about the party, pressure from other children onto our child about it and illuminate the varying expectations of families in a single community. This means that parties can be a potent mix of stress and confusion for all of us, regardless of level heads and good intentions. However, there are some clear legal obligations on parents as hosts of an under (or over) 18 event, along with some sensible principles to inform decisions.


First the law

As a parent hosting a gathering, event, or party, you carry the responsibility for the legal conduct of the event. As our children get into the later years of school, this tends mostly to revolve around the consumption of alcohol and in this, the law is very clear. Any adult found to be providing alcohol to a minor is guilty of a criminal offence that attracts a maximum fine of over $7000. This is relieved if written permission is obtained from the parents of any child at your event or party, but as a supervising parent, it is very important to be confident that this permission is genuine, as the burden of proof will lie with you (as the host) if this is challenged later.

This is relatively recent legislation and is acted upon regularly by police. It applies to adults purchasing alcohol on behalf of minors or adults ‘giving’ or providing alcohol directly to minors, whether in a licensed premises or a family home. Information about the legislation is summarised in the link below:



Party Planning

When planning parties for your children, there are some helpful principles to apply. The list below is not exhaustive, and certainly many of these will not be considered ‘necessary’ (or desirable) by your children, which is perhaps their role in this! However, you have paid for the house and birthed and raised your children, so looking after both is certainly your role and all the below may well apply!

  • Alcohol at your event is your decision (not your child’s) as per above, but comes with significant risk to you, your child and others. It is wise to manage this with care and forethought.
  • Ensure no public (as opposed to private) promotion of the party occurs on Facebook, Instagram, or any other social media platform. If this does inadvertently occur, publicly postpone the event (do not list the postponed date) to avoid the very real risk of a genuine tragedy.
  • Employ security for your event, regardless of whether you feel you need it or not. It is a relatively small investment in your family’s and your guests’ wellbeing and safety.
  • If your event is of any significant size, ensure that the local police are aware of your event and make sure you are familiar with after-hours noise legislation requirements.
  • Meet your child’s guests (and their dropping-off drivers) as they arrive, to ensure you know it is only their good humour and personality they are bringing into your house.
  • Seek the support and presence of a number of other parents for the duration of the evening. If they aren’t needed, you will discover your mutual love of good coffee and 70’s music. If they are, then your shared interests will ensure you are supported in the event of anything occurring.
  • Set a clear start and finish time for any event and stick to it.
  • If you have a guest who appears ‘unwell’ deal with it immediately, first by calling their parents and then as required. These things are easiest to solve immediately and quietly, rather than waiting and hoping, as your child may want you to do!
  • At finish time, ensure you have security or multiple parent support ‘out the front’ during the key periods.

The above certainly refers to the worst-case scenarios, which very rarely happen and even less often with good planning. While there are no silver bullets in this area and it is salutary to remember that even great people make poor decisions at times, at our School we are blessed with wonderful students, thoughtful and considered, who generally look after each other in the most caring way, and really relish their relationships with the community (and in the end they invariably become a wonderful Tintern Alumni!). Their frequency of ‘doing the right thing’ is very high indeed.

There are a number of useful links below that inform the brain effects, the decision making and the legal ramifications of alcohol and drug use. I hope they might be useful.

Curriculum Matters

As the end of Term 3 draws near, staff and students alike are looking forward to a break and the resumption of school in warmer, Spring temperatures in October. Our Year 12s, of course, will not be resting too much during the break, as they knuckle down to the all-important pre-examination revision stage of their studies for 2022 and undertake practice examinations during the second week of the holidays. We wish them well with their final few weeks at school.

The annual GAT (General Achievement Test) exam took place on site last Wednesday 7 September for all students undertaking one or more Unit 3-4 course sequence(s) this year. For the first time this year, the GAT was divided into two sessions, running over four hours, and will be used to assess students’ literacy, numeracy and general knowledge. GAT results do not affect ATAR scores nor VCE results but, for the first time this year, the literacy and numeracy scores from the GAT will be recorded on VCE certificates.  

Many parents and guardians took advantage of the recent opportunity to participate in our all-important Years 7-12 Student Progress Meetings (SPMs). These sessions provided an excellent opportunity for teachers to connect with families and celebrate the success and growth of our students and it was, again, gratifying to have so many students actively participating in these three-way conversations alongside their parents. Students were able to meet with parents and teachers over two evenings and also on our full day of meetings on 23 August, whilst also continuing their schoolwork for the day. Teachers who would have had classes that day had left tasks and activities on the portal for students to complete. This is one of the advantages of our adoption of new online practices during the lockdown periods of the past two years, allowing families to meet whilst not adversely affecting the learning of our students. Many thanks to well over 100 families who have provided feedback regarding the recent Secondary SPMs via our online survey, which closes this Wednesday 14 September. If you have not yet done this and wish to do so, we do value your opinion as we start to plan for 2023.  Complete the Secondary SPM Survey

We recently received our NAPLAN results for  current Years3, 5, 7 and 9 cohorts and individual results have been mailed out to all families of these students. NAPLAN was completed in schools across the country this year, with a record 4.3 million tests successfully submitted by more than 1.2 million students in 9,315 campuses and schools across Australia. This year marks the final year of transition to online testing, with all schools across Australia now participating in NAPLAN online.  

We have seen some excellent ongoing trends in these results and a more detailed analysis of our results will be forthcoming early in Term 4. The Government has issued Certificates of Achievement to selected Year 9 students who have demonstrated general excellence by achieving a result in the top band (Band 10) for Reading or Numeracy clearly. We are celebrating the fact that a third of our Year 9 students will receive at least one of these VCAA Certificates of Achievement, acknowledging their outstanding achievement, and half of those students will receive certificates for both Reading and Numeracy.

I would remind all families that your child’s NAPLAN results are a snapshot of your child’s progress at a given point in time and all individual NAPLAN test results should be considered alongside broader school-based assessments, which provide a more detailed picture of the whole child and their progress across many streams.

Thank you for your ongoing support during what has been a far more stable year of learning for most students than the previous two years. Our students continue to gain in confidence on their learning journey under the caring and expert guidance of our wonderful staff. I wish you all a happy and safe holiday break and look forward to seeing your children back on campus for our final term of 2022 at Tintern.

Percussion Concert

On the chilly night of 5 September, the School held the annual Percussion Concert, made possible by our wonderful percussion and drum kit teacher, Ms Nalini Scarfe. The concert consisted of students from the Junior School, up into the Senior College. There was a large variety of performances, ranging from the drum kit, to a selection of orchestral percussion instruments. We also enjoyed performances across a range of skill levels, with some students performing at their first ever concert, and some being much more experienced.

The concert started off with a fabulous performance from the Percussion Ensemble, showcasing a medley of pieces from the very popular franchise, Star Wars. Throughout the concert there were 14 different soloists with most being on the drum kit, but also some on the xylophone and timpani. Everyone performed their pieces fabulously, playing both confidently and enthusiastically. I personally found this to be an amazing experience and I think I speak on behalf of the whole audience when I say this was a thoroughly enjoyable event overall.

Snowsports Championships

Recently seven of our students competed in the Victorian Interschool Snowsports Championships. We also had three new students involved for the first time this year: Naomi Fan, Evelyn Jiang and Lucas Luo. These students, the youngest in our team, competed in really challenging conditions; wind, fog and snow but represented Tintern admirably.

XC Classic – Matthew Wilby


Alpine – Lily Wilby – Ski Cross – Lily Wilby

Ski Cross – Lily Wilby

Snowboard GS – Lucia Cockerell – Matthew Wilby – Lily Wilby – Donovan Cockerell

Snowboard Cross – Lucia Cockerell – Lily Wilby – Donavan Cockerell

From this event four students qualified to progress to the Australian National Championships held at Perisher, NSW .  Representing Tintern Grammar was:

Lily Wilby – Alpine Grand Slalom and Snowboard Grand Slalom

Matthew Wilby Cross Country Classic

Donovan Cockerell – Snowboard Cross and Snowboard Grand Slalom

Lucia Cockerell – Snowboard Cross and Snowboard Grand Slalom

We were very excited to see our students competing against the best at this top level competition where all of our students were very competitive. However, as we only fielded one student in each event, rather than a team of three, therefore unfortunately we could not receive a place. 

We want to field a bigger team next year and would love to hear from you to take part.

Please contact Ms Kathryn Brentwood if you would like to join the Interschool Snowsports Championships in 2023.

Senior Girls Touch Rugby

Congratulations to our Senior Girls Touch Rugby team, Grand Final runners up. In extremely wet conditions and no interchange bench, the girls ran hard all game and led at halftime 2-1. Against strong competitors, we finished runners up to Luther 4-3. The Tintern Grammar Girls Touch Rugby team has had a fantastic season – well done girls!


Senior Girls Volleyball A & B

The Senior Girls’ Volleyball A and B teams won their premiership against Donvale and Emmaus, respectively. The games were close, with the A’s winning in 4 sets and the Bs going to 5 sets. The girls played very well throughout the season and deserved to win the premiership. Congratulations to the A and B team.

Table Tennis 

We congratulate Yi-Jen for her continued success in Table Tennis. Last week at the ITTF-Oceania Championships, Yi-Jen was outstanding, achieving a result of 5 times medalist: 3 gold (U15 Girls Team, U21 Girls Team, U15 Girls Double), 1 silver (U15 Mix Double) and 1 bronze medal (U15 Girl Single). Best of luck at the WTT Youth Contender in Darwin held over the school holidays.


ELC News

Dramatic play is a huge element of any Early Years learning environment, and too much to cover in a few paragraphs. So what follows are some general observations and beliefs about dramatic play and children’s development.

Dramatic play can take many forms from a dedicated space, home corner, shop, vet area in a room, to incidental play opportunities, such as, “do you want to play Mums and Dads?”.

This play is often stilted or stops if an educator approaches or interacts too immediately in its dynamic. We observe from afar for body language to indicate if something is not going according to plan, otherwise, we give space and respect to allow the children to explore their social dynamics, the rules of the game, and fulfil the need that prompted the game, in their own way. We have encouraged the children to (and feel they do) approach us if there is an unmanageable problem. This helps develop their resilience and autonomy.

There is social and emotional consolidating that happens during this play, as the children work through the complexity of having friends, disagreements, wonderful moments of co-creation, development of scripts, language, and communication. Within role play the children have a safe space to try out new ideas, thoughts, and concepts. It is a wonderful way to express and explore different roles to those that they normally encounter.

As a tool for school readiness, it is invaluable, for while we may have the intelligence to read, or work out mathematical problems, or the dexterity to thread a needle, or create a stunningly observed piece of artwork, the ability to cope and maintain our sense of self (identity) in group situations is a skill that underpins all these other independent pursuits.

Over this year, we have observed a group of children that are relaxed and respectful in their social boundaries with each other. We know they have gained an understanding of the negotiating skills needed, imagination to dream, the ability to think deeply about a concept and have the opportunity to explore that with their peers. We hope we have created a happy, safe and nurturing space for them to develop these life skills.

Girls’ Junior School News


In Term 3, Year 4 students explored an Integrated Studies unit on ‘Natural Disasters’. We undertook a project, where the girls created television news programs that investigated various topics, bushfires, tsunamis, cyclones, floods, and earthquakes.

The girls worked in small groups to research more about their topic, compose scripts, plan costumes, film and edit. We used a green screen and various editing apps to elevate our finished product and allow us to film in different locations, whilst not even leaving the Colebrook Wing.

Their news programs required scientific, geographic, and historic analysis, by explaining how they are caused, where they occur most and which ones in history have impacted communities most.

The girls thoroughly enjoyed working together to play reporters, scientists, and survivors of natural disasters. Their videos they create then became a learning tool for other students.

Other activities we have enjoyed throughout the term have been poetry-writing inspired by natural disasters, hand-made volcanoes (we erupted!), themed artworks, creating fire-safety campaign posters and much more!

Next term, we move onto a new topic – SCIENTRIFIC! This is where the girls will explore different scientific experiments and STEAM challenges – posing an aim, predicting a hypothesis, and evaluating the outcome. It is sure to be a lot of fun when we get up and atom!

Year 6 Camp

Our Year 6 Girls and boys enjoyed a fun and memorable three days on camp at Merricks last week.

An afternoon spent at the Enchanted Garden Adventure Park, and activities including bike riding and canoeing were completed with great spirit and much laughter, and the respect and care for one another was a genuine highlight of the three days


Secondary News

We have made it to the end of Term 3 in wonderful fashion. Our Year 12s have been working incredibly hard toward their end of year examinations including completing many of their last SACs and most recently the GAT. They will no doubt be looking forward to the upcoming holidays; albeit not to stop, but more so to find time to focus on the coming weeks and to hone their final approaches to the end of they year. In the second week of the holidays they will be heavily involved in trial examinations where they can put into practice the skills and knowledge they have developed over the course of the year.

The upcoming holidays are a great opportunity for all students to take a moment to rest from school and to reflect on the efforts and commitment they have put into their studies throughout Term 3. At the recent student progress meetings, feedback was given by teachers that is aimed at helping all students improve in their learning both at school and at home. The holidays are often a good opportunity for students to find some time to revisit content that was taught and look to consolidate their understanding before returning in Term 4.


Year 7 2023 Orientation Day 1

On Monday 05 September we held the first of our three orientation days for our Year 7s of 2023. These days are aimed at welcoming all the new students to Tintern as well as welcoming our own Grade 6s into the Middle School for the day. We were blessed with delightful weather on the day which ensured a fantastic experience for all students.

They were taken on a tour of the secondary school, which for many of them was the first time they had been around the campus due to restrictions over the last two years. They played many team focussed games co-ordinated by an organisation called Coach Approach (founded by a Tintern alumni) that ensured they spent a lot of time getting to know each other, especially the new students.

It was great to have a large number of our current Years 7 & 8 students assisting throughout the day with either the tours, answering questions or sharing their own experiences throughout their transition and journey through Middle School so far.


Middle School GEM Day

The three principles which are the focus of the Resilience Project, and are proven to cultivate positive emotions are Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness (GEM). These three key pillars are emphasised during pastoral sessions, and form the basis for all planning for GEM Days, which occur once per term.

Last Friday we were privileged to have our Senior Leaders spend time organising and running activities for our Middle School students for Term 3 GEM Day. This was particularly admirable as this is the pointy end of the academic year for senior students. Activities such as trivia quizzes, stack the cups, get to know you games, relaxation and mindfulness, and year-level sport challenges were planned and executed by the leaders, in what appeared to be a very enjoyable time for all involved. These activities were in mixed groups, providing an opportunity for students on both sides of the Middle School to get to know each other a little more, in preparation for Senior College.

Safe online behaviour was the general theme for the day, and therefore the presentation by Senior Constable Jay Colliver was strategically timed. Jay brought many key points to the attention of the Middle School students, at a time when this information is so relevant for this age group. She made the point that we have a school community, a wider community and an online community, emphasising that the way we behave between these three communities should not differ. She encouraged students to ensure all accounts are set to private and to check privacy settings regularly. What not to do online and where to find help were also clearly outlined, and this information is also covered during pastoral sessions currently. The day concluded with viewing most of the documentary The Social Dilemma and we encourage parents to have conversations around safe online behaviour on a regular basis at home.


Thursday 8 September was RU OK Day and our Senior student leaders ensured that the message of checking on your friends as well as yourself was one that was made very clear to the students. There were daily emails sent out highlighting the importance of checking in, as well as stickers and posters around the school throughout the day on Thursday and into Friday.  It is such an important message for them to be hearing, as it is for all of us.


EISM Cross Country

On Wednesday 31 August Tintern Grammar competed at the EISM Cross Country Carnival at Ruffey Lake Park, Doncaster.  Our students achieved some fantastic results, with Tintern finishing second on the leaders board. Read the full report on our Sports Matters page.


Year 10 Outdoor Education Alpine Camp

Our Year 10 Outdoor Education and Environmental Studies students recently undertook a camp at Mt Stirling. Hiking up to the snowline and skiing and camping in the snow, ensured their outdoor survival skills were applied in this pristine environment. 

Read more and watch our video 


We wish all families a wonderful holiday at the end of this week. A reminder that the last day of classes for all students is Thursday 15 September with Friday being a staff only day. The first day of Term 4 for students is Monday 03 October.
