Tangara works in partnership with parents to form each child’s character, educating for personal and academic excellence. We challenge our students to live a life of faith, and lead change for a more just and human society.

We believe that the best education develops the whole person: it integrates academic excellence with character development, as each student strives towards her personal and academic potential. Our Religious Education Program is carried out in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic faith.

Tangara’s curriculum is based on the classical liberal arts tradition, opening minds and hearts to the very best of human civilisation. It harmonises intellectual, cultural, spiritual, human and physical development.

Tangara embraces an enquiry based learning style, inspired by the Visible Thinking approach developed by researchers at Harvard University. Students are encouraged to investigate, probe, explore and appreciate diverse view points in the classroom.

Our teachers challenge the students with life's most important questions. Our students learn to think independently, read critically, reason carefully, argue logically and love the truth.

While always respecting freedom of conscience, Tangara students are encouraged to develop a loving relationship with God. Discovering the Divine in daily life gives them the confidence to contemplate the big questions and the hope that fills their journey with meaning and purpose. Our Religious Education program offers students a solid grounding in the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith.

Tangara’s Chaplains are priests of Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church that helps lay people integrate their faith with their family and friendships, their study and professional work, and all of the ordinary circumstances of their lives. Mass is celebrated daily in our Chapel for students, staff, family and friends who wish to attend. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also available.

Charity | self-giving, love of

God and kindness towards others

Our vision is a happy and vibrant School, highly regarded as a centre of excellence, where every child is encouraged to be the very best person she or he can be. Parents, staff and students work as a united team for the pursuit of character and academic success, with a commitment to service and a life of faith.

Welcome and thank you for your interest in our beautiful school. Having three daughters of my own, I understand the importance of selecting a school that works in partnership with you through your most important task in life - parenting.

Since 1982, Tangara has offered families and their children a total educational experience unlike any other through our unique 1 on 1 Mentoring System. Combined with a strong academic foundation, this system differs markedly from arrangements offered in other schools by enabling a true partnership between school and parents in the development of their children.

Tangara is built on the belief that the best education develops the whole person, integrating the pursuit of academic excellence, learning of diverse skills, building of character and the development of faith. We inspire young women to embrace leadership and thrive in all areas of life through our outstanding academics and co-curricular opportunities in sport, music, drama, public speaking, community service, leadership and much more.

Our mission is summed up best in our school motto: Ad SummamVirtutem, Towards the Fullness of Virtue.

Please join us at our next Open Day where you can meet our students and our dedicated staff and see our wonderful school in action.

Sincerely,
Rita Sakr
