Sharing Experiences – Class of 2021
Alumni Panel at the Year 12 Conference
On Tuesday 29 November Emily Mignot, President of the TGA facilitated an alumni discussion panel for our Year 11’s heading into Year 12 for 2023.
The alumni were invited to share their experience and knowledge of how they transitioned away from school and into their chosen study or work field.
Following the discussion, the alumni participated in a group activity where the students had one-on-one experience networking.
Thank you to Lachlan O’Reilly (Class of 2019), Angus Maynard (Class of 2017), Ashleigh Dowling (Class of 2020), Alexandra Wakeley (Class of 2012), Emily Mignot (Class of 2012) for volunteering their time to help our Year 12, 2023 students.

Back for the Jazz!
We were excited to see and hear an Alumni Jazz Band feature in this year’s long-awaited Jazz Night, Winter Wonderland. Some of the Alumni who participated tapped out some tunes at Music Camp before the actual event. The full line-up on the night included from the Class of 2021 Alec Chen, Erin O’Callaghan, Sam Victoria, Joshua Choong and Amelia Kenny. Representing the Class of 2020 was Bianca Settle, Zoë Forbes, Alice Church and Madison Edwards-Turner, while Aaron Zhou represented the Class of 2019.

Year 7 Public Speaking Competition
Thank you to Kirsty McDonald (Class of 2011) who visited Tintern on Wednesday 26 October to judge our inaugral Year 7 Public Speaking Competition.
Kirsty was excited to be invited back to judge the year 7 public speaking competition and recalls that public speaking hasn’t always come easy for her. She has worked on her public speaking skills over the last couple of years and in 2021 presented at an online tech conference. In the same year she also joined Toastmasters, to practice public speaking, improve her communication and build leadership skills.
Thank you to Kirsty for supporting our Year 7 students, and judging this wonderful event.
