The role of the Publications Office at Tara is to highlight the many achievements of our girls and community through a number of timely publications. We understand the importance of home school communication and aim to share this in a variety of means to parents, students, staff and the wider community. Some of Tara's printed publications include:
A colour gloss magazine that features Tara's curriculum news with a strong focus on engaged students in our creative classrooms with their excellent teachers, latest community stories and news of Old Girls. The Tara Circle is circulated two times a year and posted to current families, Old Girls, past parents and future families.
