Canberra Private SchoolsÂ introduces Thomas Carr College in Tarneit, for all your education and learning needs.
Thomas Carr College is a dynamic Catholic learning community, guided by the Gospel. Excellence and opportunities to develop are pursued. Through our hope and service to others we shine our light into the world.
Thomas Carr College was established in 1997 with an initial enrolment of 72 students. In 1998 we moved to our permanent site at 35 Thomas Carr Drive Tarneit. We currently have approximately1200 students from Years 7 to 12.
As a Catholic School we aim to educate our students with an appreciation of the spiritual as well as the intellectual and physical aspects of their lives. We aim to work with our parents to produce young people of faith and character.
The College is situated on over 10 hectares of spacious grounds incorporating modern, state of the art facilities consisting of a newly built Middle School Science Centre, art and design rooms, technology (IT, materials, food, wood, fibre, media) laboraties, a well resourced Information Centre, a horticulture patch, drama and music rooms, an International Friendship Centre for the International Students Program and a fully equipped gymnasium. We also have a first class oval for football and cricket, 8 multi purpose courts for tennis and basketball and practice areas for hockey and cricket.
Welcome to Thomas Carr College one of the popular educators in your Tarneit area. Our aim is help you in your learning journey.
We endeavour to celebrate each other's uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
