The role of the Publications Office at Tara is to highlight the many achievements of our girls and community through a number of timely publications. We understand the importance of home school communication and aim to share this in a variety of means to parents, students, staff and the wider community. Some of Tara's printed publications include:
A NSW Board of Studies document that features "top-line" information about the strategic imperatives of the school, goals achieved and future plans. It also contains the HSC accomplishments of our students and staff together with financial information.
