- Why Tara
At Tara we are evolving to adapt to the changing needs of students and their families recognising longer working hours for parents, growing travel times and an increased demand for flexibility.
We offer local weekly boarding as a Best of Both Worlds option for city based students. This provides the choice for Sydney and surrounding area families to access boarding options for their daughters.
Weekly boarding provides a supportive and nurturing environment with the benefits of having the opportunity to be at home for all or part of the weekend.
Your daughter will appreciate the structured environment of boarding in Eggleton House with access to academic staff.
Weekly boarding can teach self management, self reliance, cooperation, and cultivate friendships.
Enrolments for 2022 need to be received by 20 January 2022.
Take advantage of becoming a Tara weekly boarder and benefit from:
Structured routine allowing students to develop good study habits prior to the HSC;
Academic assistance tutors and teachers are available Monday to Thursday from 6.30-8.30pm to assist with academic concerns;
