Student Exchange Program
Tara has well established links with exchange schools in Canada, Scotland, France and Japan that offer opportunities for Tara girls to travel the world and spend time studying, improving languages, playing sport, enjoying activities and making friends in schools across the globe.
Exchanges are mainly offered to girls who are completing their final term of Year 10 studies. Family hosting opportunities are also available. Students may apply in writing to the Exchange Coordinator or to request more information.
“ opportunities to travel the world”
Tara offers two GAP placements per semester to overseas students who have completed their High School studies abroad and who wish to take a year out working at Tara Anglican School for Girls.
Gap students are employed as a Boarding House Junior Mistress (up to 20 hours per week) and primarily, as an assistant in the Sport, Drama and Music facilities (up to 20 hours per week). Applicants may also nominate an area suited to their interests and ability.
