- Why Tara
Let’s Choose To Challenge
It’s a time to celebrate the achievements of women, whether social, political, economic or cultural.
We celebrate all women, in all their diversities and celebrate their achievements to create a more inclusive, more equal world.
Tara Year 12 students hosted a breakfast for Senior School students and invited them to share:
Which women have inspired you?
Why do they inspire you?
How do their achievements inspire you?
It was a morning to feel empowered.
