TINTERN SCHOOLS


Tintern Schools offer a unique learning environment for boys and girls to experience parallel learning at its best in small classes. Imagine coming to school every day to towering eucalypts and Australian native plants, the sounds of wattle birds and magpies, open space, quiet, and fresh air. Tintern provides a rich and engaging curriculum that builds a lifelong love of learning and personal, social and emotional growth for each student. This Tintern campus is comprised of an ELC for boys and girls aged 3 to 5; a Prep to Year 9 girls campus and a Year 10 to 12 co-ed Senior College. From 2014 the Prep to Year 9 boys will also be located on the Tintern campus. The dedicated Senior College for boys and girls ensures that senior students benefit from a mixed learning environment and social experiences that will equip them for tertiary learning and their life beyond school. In the area only Tintern Schools offer students three distinct pathways: VCE, VCE/VET (Vocational Education Training) and the International Baccalaureate. Underpinning this exceptional curriculum is an outstanding pastoral care program that ensures that each student develops important life skills such as teamwork, compassion, global citizenship, co-operation, problem solving, optimism and work ethic.

Facilities: Tintern Schools offers first-class facilities for its students. Information Technology laboratories with the latest software and equipment, science laboratories, two libraries, specialist visual arts studios, dance and drama facilities, music rooms with recording equipment and a gymnasium and pool complex complement an excellent curriculum. Students from Pre-Prep to Year 12 also enjoy access to Tinternwood Farm, where they learn about sustainability.

Curriculum: The use of technologies is integrated throughout a comprehensive curriculum at all levels. Subject content and programs are constantly reviewed to challenge students and reflect current educational philosophies. At senior level, students may choose to undertake VCE, International Baccalaureate or VET courses. Specific information on the curriculum is available from the Admissions Manager.

Extra-curricular activities: Students are encouraged to expand their interests and enrich their learning with experiences chosen from a broad selection of activities including debating, problem-solving competitions, drama, a wide range of sports, school musicals and the Young Farmers group. Orchestras, choirs and ensembles are enthusiastically joined by students of all ages and individual musical instrument tuition is available.

Student welfare programs: Pastoral care is provided by form teachers, year-level co-ordinators, school counsellors and the school chaplain. Specialist careers consultants provide resources and practical advice to help students make decisions about subject choice, tertiary courses and career pathways.
