Toys under the Christmas tree this year, not Stationery!
Tara Supporting Rural Communities through the Drought
Tara Anglican School for Girls is mindful of the current need of country communities. As so many families are struggling and times are tough we want to lend a helping hand in the name of Drought Relief. Tara Students, Staff and Parents are leading a series of initiatives over a number of weeks to support country communities to make a difference.

‘Stationery Boxes + a little something’ for Central/Distance Education Schools
We know that country families value education. We have learned that many families need to give their children stationery items as their Christmas gift. Our staff and students started an initiative to gift stationery packs to children ahead of Christmas so this year they may find something special under the Christmas tree from their family. Approximately $20 per box provided the required items for the 2019 school year for each student.
We are proud to say Tara has achieved our goal of raising thousands of dollars and packing over 500 stationery boxes. This meets our pledge to provide every student a stationery box from the Central/Distant Education Schools chosen that have a direct link to our current Tara boarders, including Dunedoo Central School, Gunning Public School, Braidwood Central School, Greenethorpe Public School, Marra Creek Public School and Bourke-Walgett School of Distance Education.
“This means that every student in our central schools has their stationery items covered for the 2019 school year and their parents can now buy them a Christmas present that they would really love rather than items for school,” said Philippa Bucknell (Year 10 boarding student from Lerida). #TaraSupportingRuralCommunities #DroughtRelief
