Tamborine Mountain College’s intention is to provide personalised education, catering for individual optimum learning with a ‘family’ like environment. The College has set standards in the area of academics with a strong focus on core curriculum. Our academic program seeks to create confident students who develop into independent learners.
A wide range of avenues are on offer to nurture and encourage students in an array of areas. Tutorials are on offer every afternoon between 3pm – 4pm so that students can receive subject teacher assistance or extension. An instrumental music tutor is available for those students who wish to pursue a musical talent. Gifted and talented programs are available to ensure that students who are gifted feel that they are valued in a learning environment which both challenges and supports them to pursue excellence and develop a passion for lifelong learning.
Tamborine Mountain College’s educational philosophy ensures there is a strong emphasis on modern, innovative teaching programs based upon traditional values. Caring and committed teachers in well-equipped classrooms provide a balance between formal and child centered learning.
Extensive computer access is incorporated across the curriculum, at all year levels, with a sequential program to develop appropriate skills. The use of online learning initiatives enables the students to construct meaning, present knowledge and enhance their learning techniques.
Challenging teaching and learning activities in the Key Learning Areas of English, Mathematics, Science, History and the Social Sciences, Digital Technology, Health and Physical Education, The Arts, and French Culture and Language contribute to an all-encompassing curriculum. Excursions and special events are held throughout the year to enhance the learning process.
