Chloe Moorfoot (YG 2008)

Philippa Page (YG 2008)

Carla Johnson (YG 2004)


Katherine Gracey (YG 1996)

Kirsty McDonald (YG 2011)

Thank you for sharing your stories and experiences with our Junior School students.

We then welcomed Jac Cottee (YG 1994) a Qantas Pilot, and Louise Nance (YG 2008) a  Mechanical Engineer with Ford, to speak with our secondary students. Inspiring and passionate speakers they spoke of their paths after Tintern, challenges they have found in their working life, and advice for both girls and boys on the future for females in the Aviation and Engineering fields, as well as the broader workforce.

Thank you Jac and Louise for joining us at the Secondary Assembly on Friday 6 March.

If you’d like to be included in future International Women’s Day events, or would be interested in returning to any other Tintern events, please contact the Community Relations Office.
