- Why Tara
- Christian Faith
As one of Australia’s leading independent day and boarding schools, Tara Anglican School for Girls is a specialist in girls’ education and has an outstanding reputation for preparing young women to achieve in a dynamic world.
My name is Prisca Lam and it is an honour to serve as Tara’s Head Girl for 2019–2020. Attending Tara since Year 7, I am continually grateful to attend a school passionate about girls’ education, focused on empowering each individual to reach their full potential.
Our Junior School, Senior School and Eggleton House Boarding (Years 5–12) facilities are on one campus, encouraging interaction across the School. Boarders are at the heart of the School and contribute fully to its daily life; to study, perform, create and explore.
Established in 1897, Tara has 123 years experience in educating young people in the Parramatta and Hills region of Sydney. We are a school with a rich history.
Tara has state of the art facilities, committed resources and excellent academic programs tailored to the individual and how girls learn best. Our students are talented, accomplished and keen to pursue their abilities.
Tara places an emphasis on holistic development where every student is cared for, challenged and equipped to live out the distinctive values of the school. Our purpose is to be a Christian learning community, characterised by excellence, which encourages and empowers all students.
The Principal is committed to the employment of highly qualified, innovative and enthusiastic staff who fully support the Christian ethos and contribute to the extra curricular programs of the School.
