Learning Resource Centre

The Claridge Learning Resource Centre is named after Miss Helen Claridge who was the fifth Principal of Tara from 1959 to 1971. Miss Claridge was an avid supporter of Tara's library and recognised the important role it played in student learning and wellbeing and is a vital part of the Tara Senior School experience. 

Claridge Learning Resource Centre

Human Resources

Library staff actively assist individual students when required. In addition, Teacher Librarians work collaboratively with staff across the school to plan and deliver rich learning experiences. This partnership actively promotes awareness and understanding of information literacy and academic honesty throughout the School.

English and Mathematics staff provide subject specific homework and study assistance on several afternoons each week.

We provide a small collection of fiction, non-fiction and newspapers in global languages for our bilingual students.
