- Why Tara
- Christian Faith
As a Christian learning community, we want to encourage and empower young women to serve others as an outworking of who we are.A
Our purpose is to be a Christian learning community, characterised by excellence, which encourages and empowers girls to achieve and serve in a dynamic world
‘Service learning’ is an educational approach combining learning objectives with community service, in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience while meeting societal needs. Our aim is that our all our programs, framework and foundation for service deliver genuine ‘service learning’, positive educational outcomes and ‘real learning’, whilst meeting genuine need. We don’t just want to be busy or tick a box of achievement.
Our service learning framework is demonstrated through the following diagrams.
Our aim is that every girl (and staff member) regularly and naturally contributes in serving our world; Individually, as part of a group (e.g Year/House/Class group events and activities etc) and as part of the whole Community that is Tara.
We see our shared responsibility as both near and far. We want to make a positive difference in the lives of those in our local area (local for Tara, as well as our own neighbourhood), national, as part of our beautiful country of Australia, and globally, through our partnerships, and beyond.
“And who is my neighbour?” (Luke 10:29)
