Head Girl - Senior School
My name is Zoe and I am the Head Girl for 2017-2018. It is such an honour to have been elected to this position, and I cannot wait to see what this year holds.
I have attended Tara since kindergarten, and as I approach my thirteenth year at Tara, I can honestly say that I have loved every minute of my schooling experience. The welcoming, caring and encouraging environment is a true reflection of Tara’s dedication to being a Christ centred community, making every girl, no matter what age, background or interests feel accepted and cared for.
One of the most valuable aspects of the Tara community is the school’s dedication to girl’s education, demonstrated through the extensive time and effort the members of staff invest in the students. The small class sizes provide a strong student-teacher relationship, allowing the best to be brought out of every girl in terms of their academic ability. At Tara, every girl is known and valued.
The opportunities at Tara are abundant, including lunchtime and extra-curricular activities. Throughout my time at Tara, I have actively participated in sport, drama, art, debating, music and leadership, all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed. The broad range of activities that are available for girls from Year 7-12 not only showcases the immense talent of the girls, but also encourages students to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. Tara caters for the specific interests of each girl, and there is no doubt that there is something for everyone.
I think it is evident in our HSC results that Tara is devoted to academic performance. However, the girls are not only provided with an excellent level of education, Tara also helps equip girls with skills they can take with them once they leave school. The close-knit, nurturing and unified sense of community that extends through every aspect of Tara is something I know I have truly valued, and something that I am extremely grateful for.
Tara has grown me in every sense over the past thirteen years. Attending an all-girl school that is passionate about education for girls has empowered me to achieve to the best of my potential. Tara fosters a true sense of pride and excellence, whilst facilitating a loving and caring community. I cannot thank Tara enough for my time at the school, and I am excited to witness the generation of strong and confident women that progress throughout the years.
