Tarrawanna Public School provides a small school, safe and caring atmosphere in which there is support for students of all ages, ability, race and socio-economic background. All members of our school community are committed to provide a learning, social and physical environment which is balanced, stimulating and enjoyable through the provision of current teaching and learning programs and resources. Our school community believes students learn more effectively in a secure, ordered and safe environment in which students, staff and parents take pride in achievement. There is a strong emphasis placed on positive practices to enhance self-esteem and to promote effective learning. In all areas of learning, our student management concerns the development of appropriate and responsible habits, attitudes, knowledge and behaviour of students. It implies the development of self-discipline and the ability of students to make appropriate choices and to be sensitive to the needs of individuals and groups. Home, school and community take joint responsibility in developing and promoting desirable standards of teaching, student learning and behaviour. Our focus on the development of strong literacy, numeracy and technology skills across all key learning areas strives to provide students with a positive self-reliance.
