We are proud of all of our 2014 HSC students who have attained personal academic goals. These students have contributed enormously to the vibrant life of the school in all areas, including leadership, sport, and in the creative and performing arts as well as developing lifelong friendships.

Special thanks to our teaching staff who have worked so hard together with our girls during their years at Tara. Our staff are caring to each individual girl and are so very passionate and dedicated about their craft. Teachers at Tara are integral to our girls’ achievements. We take pride in the success of each girl in making the most of her abilities.

The Class of 2014 are confident young women, who have developed a passion for learning and are ready to meet the challenges of the world ahead of them. I wish them every success in the future. We eagerly await news of their continuing achievements.
