The Tara Old Girls' Association aims to support school programs and offer scholarships and bursaries to the daughters or grand-daughters of Old Girls.
This Scholarship is awarded by the Tara Old Girls’ Association annually, to the value of $5,000, in the memory of Mary Elizabeth (Joan) Waugh, Headmistress of Tara from 1887 – 1946. The award aims to assist an Old Girl in the undertaking of further studies, research or development in a particular area of interest, skill or expertise, either in Australia or overseas.

As a welcome gift a $500 Bursary is given to every daughter of an Old Girl, who is a member. This is a one off payment towards your school fees in the year your daughter commences at Tara.
At the Year 12 Valedictory Celebration in September, the Association presents current Year 12 students with a farewell gift of a charm, designed by Tara Old Girl, Helen Teulon (1982 Alumini). This charm has been inspired by the Celtic style representing the “Thread of Tara”. Year 12 students who have attended Tara continuously from Kindergarten to Year 12 are also presented with a personally named Bible.
Please do not hesitate to contact the President of the Old Girls' Association on email for more information.
