TANGARA SCHOOL FOR GIRLS


Tangara was founded by a group of parents and teachers, the PARED
(Parents for Education) Foundation, on the principle that parents are the
primary educators and that the school exists to give parents support. Parental
involvement is expected in key aspects of the child’s development. Christian
values are fostered. These include respect for self and others and a
willingness to serve one another.

Curriculum: A strong program in both the humanities and sciences is
offered, with an emphasis on solid core subjects for the HSC. Computer
technology is integrated throughout the curriculum. Core subjects — History,
(Years 7 to 10), French (Kindergarten to Year 8) and Classical Studies (Latin)
(Years 7 and 8), after which it may be studied as an elective. There is a
commitment to very high standards of literacy and numeracy throughout the
school.

Electives Years 9 and 10: Latin, French, Geography, Visual Arts,
Music, History.

Electives Years 11 and 12: Mathematics, General Mathematics,
Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Business Studies, Commerce, Modern History,
Ancient History, Geography, French, Latin, Visual Arts, Music, PD/Health/PE,
Food Technology, Drama. Extension courses are offered in subjects where
applicable.

Sport: PE classes involve netball, basketball and soccer, among
others. There are JIPSHA, IGSSA and Hills Zone competitions in athletics,
swimming, gymnastics, netball, basketball, cross-country, soccer, volleyball,
hockey, tennis, and equestrian.

Co-curricular activities: Musical instruments, voice training,
chimes ensemble, orchestra, rock band, choir, speech and drama, debating,

Competitions and the Da Vinci Decathlon are also offered. Students can
participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme and service projects. There
is also a variety of clubs.

Special features: Tangara’s tutorial system establishes a close and
constant link between the school and the parents. Every student is allocated a
personal tutor from the teaching staff of the school. They meet with the
parents every term and every two weeks with the student. Character development
is the ultimate focus. The success of the tutorial system depends on the
effective teamwork between the parents, the tutor, the teachers, and the
students themselves. It is the key to the school’s personalised education.
There are two co-educational infant feeder schools: Retaval Wahroonga (located
at 100 Fox Valley Road, Wahroonga, 2076), and Retaval Belfield (located at 3
Elliott Street, Belfield, 2191).
