The Tawingo College community and the interaction and connection between students, teachers and parents is very special.
Tia Pearse, the principal of Tawingo College, is in the parking lot every single morning at drop off time. She enthusiastically welcomes the students to school and talks to the parents.
Each afternoon the teachers are at the pick-up area. Students run around and play while parents have conversations with teachers (and each other). Regular conversations with your child’s teacher, and not just when there is a learning or behavioural concern, will give you real insight into your child’s day-to-day life at school.
You’ll also get to know your children’s friends and their families very well. Pick-up time provides a great opportunity for casual chats with other parents. There are many events throughout the year that parents (and grandparents and other relatives) are invited to: hikes and other outdoor activities, sit down luncheons, school concerts and assemblies.
If you really want to get involved, Tawingo College welcomes volunteers into the classrooms, drama program, extracurricular activities and field trips. This is a great way to see your child thriving and interacting in their learning environment and to get to know their friends.
