Community Announcement December 2018: The next major project for Tara will be an Aquatic Centre and Sports Precinct! The project will provide a 25m, eight-lane competition pool with associated facilities, a fitness centre and tiered seating.
In a community survey some years ago, Council asked for comment on the facilities that students and families would like to see at Tara. The two highest priorities from that process were for us to build a Chapel and an Aquatic Centre. The Chapel has now been built and so we have now turned our minds to the Aquatic Centre. There were many questions to be asked about size and scope, placement in the school grounds, connection to the community, the range of activities and programs we would like to see. Another important question was our responsibility in serving the school in terms of the facility we build and the long term impact on the School.
So we began with a very important question:
We went back to:
Core Purpose and Vision: to be a Christian learning community, characterised by excellence, which encourages and empowers girls to achieve and serve in a dynamic world
Our Vision: Tara will be a leader in girls' Christian education based on research informed teaching and learning with an emphasis on the holistic development of each student, and where every student is cared for, challenged and equipped to live out the distinctive values of the School
The Tara Purpose and Vision informs our view that we aim to provide resources and facilities which cater for and support students with a range of abilities, interests, backgrounds and aspirations in a Christian environment.
After a great deal of consideration, we are ready to share with you, the scope of the project which we are confident delivers an aligned outcome between the Purpose and Vision and this particular building.
We will keep you informed of our progress during next year and provide forums to answer questions you may have. In the mean time we have prepared a flyer for you below to answer all your questions at this important stage of the project:
