From the Head Girl & Elizabeth Medalist

Hello and welcome to Tara Anglican School for Girls!


Head Girl - Senior School 

My name is Sophie and I am the Head Girl for 2018-2019. It is such an honour to have been elected to this position, and I am excited for the year ahead. 

I have attended Tara since Junior School, and I can truly say that I have loved every moment of it. The Christ centred, nurturing and unified environment is evident in every aspect of the school, and is what I have treasured most over my years at Tara.

This environment, along with the school’s commitment to each individual is rewarding, and is crucial in allowing the girls to reach their full potential. 

All students are made to feel at home, whether they are day girls or boarders. The mentoring programs throughout the entire school and within each cohort are extensive and are central to making sure each girl is appropriately cared for. This community feeling has led me to form many strong and supportive relationships with students, both in my own grade and across grades. 

The opportunities at Tara certainly cater for the interests of each girl. Over my years at Tara, I have had the joy of participating in various aspects of the school such as sport, debating, music, art, drama and leadership. The encouragement to challenge yourself and to try something new has been valuable for gaining skills that I will take with me for the rest of my life. 

Not only is Tara devoted to excellent co-curricular opportunities, but academic performance also. Tara’s excellent academic achievements across Years 7-12 are a testimony to the school’s dedication to girl’s education. The student-teacher relationships are beneficial for the individual learning needs of every student being met. The passion from the staff translates into time and effort invested in every Tara student where they can achieve their best. 

Tara promotes an all-round education, fostering strong and confident women, prepared for life beyond school. I am so grateful to Tara for my time here and I cannot wait to see the many women that progress throughout the years.

Elizabeth Medalist

Elizabeth Medalist - Junior School

My name is Nestacia Karam. I am very grateful that I got the opportunity to be elected by my fellow peers and teachers to be Tara’s new Elizabeth Medalist for 2019. I am very enthusiastic and responsible. I am so excited to be able to represent Tara. I always try my best to be a role model to younger girls within School and the community. I love being a Tara girl and I’m very proud and thankful for this wonderful School that I go to.

I have been at Tara ever since Year 4. I’ve had numerous opportunities to participate in many School activities. Such as Saturday sport, swimming, gymnastics, music groups, debating, SRC, and many more.

One thing that I love about being a Tara girl is that you are always encouraged to strive. I also love the friendships that I have with different people, and how we get to learn about our saviour, Jesus Christ. Tara is a very encouraging, positive, challenging and Christian environment. Tara provides an excellent education for young girls which helps us with social skills and confidence.

Tara is a great School. I love attending School knowing that today is going to be great, and that always happens. During 2019 you can be sure that I will try my best to make Tara an even better place for young girls.
