The Junior School curriculum includes the six Key Learning Areas (KLAs) prescribed by the NSW Board of Studies: English; Mathematics; Science and Technology; Human Society and its Environment; Creative Arts; and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE). These are taught through exciting, academically rigorous programs.
We also offer our students many extra subjects beyond these six KLAs, supporting and encouraging them to discover and develop their academic talents and special interests. Additionally there are support programs for gifted and talented students and for students who need help with their learning. Our Public Speaking Program teaches presentation skills to all girls from Kindergarten - a wonderful experience for students' confidence and poise.
“ we seek to know each girl ”
From Pre Kindergarten, students have access to computers and Tara girls are encouraged to develop expertise in Information Technology. Our Junior School Library is well resourced and provides an extensive collection of print and audiovisual material to develop students' research skills. Our Teacher Librarian provides an exciting, high quality reading and learning atmosphere and has been recognised for her teaching expertise, winning an award from the Australian College of Educators and a school award for innovation in education.
In the Junior School, we seek to know each girl, her capabilities and interests and we support her to develop these.
