· Tara is a Top 100 School (Sydney Morning Herald, pg 8, 19/12/13)

Tara is a non-selective School where our girls achieve excellent results across a wide range of subjects. Congratulations on the class of 2013 for a terrific set of results. There are some wonderful individual achievements, such as HSC Top All-Rounder Siobhan Kennedy who achieved a Band 6 result in all of her courses, whilst Sheerin Takoo, Jessy Chung, Cissy Shen, and Hannah Stack achieved Band 6 results in all but one course. Particularly pleasing are Nina Samardzic placing 8th in the State in Drama, and Maria Costi placing 8th in the State in Hospitality.

Tara teachers are also congratulated for their hard work with the 2013 HSC group. English Extension 1, Mathematics Extension 1, History Extension, Geography, Music 1, Music 2, Visual Arts, and Japanese Extension all had 100% of students achieving a Band 5 or Band 6 result, closely followed by Business Studies (90%) and Mathematics Extension 2, English Extension 2, and Studies of Religion (80%). Courses which achieved more than double the State average of Bands 5 and 6 results were PDHPE, Food Technology, General Mathematics, French, Business Studies, Hospitality, Economics, History Extension, Drama, Modern History, Music 1, and Studies of Religion.

This is an impressive set of academic results for Tara students and teachers. We are proud of all of our 2013 HSC students who have attained personal academic goals and who have contributed enormously to the vibrant life of the School in areas including leadership, sport and in the creative and performing arts. They have made the very most of their opportunities at Tara, both in and out of the classroom. As these young women leave Tara we wish them well for the future.

Finally we wish to thank the Tara parents for their wonderful support of their daughters and of our School. Tara cannot achieve excellence in teaching and learning without parental support. Our strong sense of community at Tara helps our girls to feel secure and empowered to achieve.

Mr Scott Baker (Director of Teaching & Learning)
