‘WE ARE THE

                 difference

At Timbarra P-9 College, every child matters, every day.

 

We understand the learning journey for our students begins at home and we actively cultivate positive home/school partnerships to promote a culture for life long-learning. Our College values developing the whole child and we provide learning opportunities to foster student’s curiosity, resilience, creativity and confidence. At Timbarra P-9 College we support every child to reach their potential by fostering a love of Literacy and Numeracy and actively encourage students to investigate the world around them. We provide students with opportunities to develop practical skills and knowledge in technology and integrate this across all curriculum areas. Wellbeing programs form an essential part of our teaching and learning program, where we explicitly teach and demonstrate pro-social values such as kindness, tolerance, co-operation, persistence and respect. We guide students in identifying their own learning styles and to use their voice and agency to cultivate a strong sense of self.

 

We are proud that our students are confident, adaptable, sensitive and resilient. An excellent education is the best gift we can give your child. At Timbarra P-9 College ‘we are the difference’.
