The school has a non-selective enrolment and staff work closely with parents to provide the most appropriate teaching and learning conditions for our girls. Tara's Principal, Mrs Middlebrook, is committed to the employment of highly qualified, enthusiastic staff who are passionate about learning, teaching and working at Tara.
“ Tara focuses on meeting the individual learning needs of each girl ”
Tara has excellent resources - including human resources and facilities. Tara Junior School endeavours to provide students with an enriched educational and caring environment with a focus on meeting the individual learning needs of each girl. Our class sizes are small. Tara's classroom teachers are responsible for each girl's core learning program and progress and are supported by literacy and numeracy teachers and teacher's aides.
“ Our class sizes are small. ”
Every girl, Pre Kindergarten to Year 6, is taught by a specialist teacher for Sport, Visual Arts, Music, and Information Technology. Our secondary school teachers also provide our Junior School students with opportunities to learn a foreign language from Year 5.
Tara's Before & After School Care and Vacation Care Centre is located on site in the Junior School. This service is offered to our Junior School families and is open before school from 7.00am-8.15am and after school from 3:00pm - 6:30pm. Girls are provided with breakfast and afternoon tea with homework time organised and supervised. While casual places are usually available on a daily basis, parents are strongly advised to apply for a place at the Centre as this is a popular service.
