Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Tarrington Lutheran School.

I am delighted that you are interested in finding out more about our wonderful School.

We are a co-educational, Foundation to Year 6 Primary School located just nine kilometres from the regional hub of Hamilton. We have a 167 year legacy of partnering with local families to deliver a program of exceptional foundational learning that inspires each child to achieve personal success. It is humbling to have multiple generations of local families entrust us with the care of their children. This is a responsibility that our team of talented educators take seriously, but, rest assured that this is balanced with curiosity, joy and a healthy sense of the adventure of learning along the way!

We are proud of our reputation for providing high quality teaching and learning within an environment that nurtures the strengths, interests and values of each child. We are committed to working closely with each family to understand each child as an individual and what they need to thrive.

Throughout my time in education, I have yet to encounter another school quite like Tarrington. Our family-oriented community of students, teachers, parents and carers is unlike any other; it’s a place where we genuinely care for each other, where friendships transcend year groups and lifelong bonds are formed. I believe that words and images can only go so far in describing what a school environment is really like. In my experience, a great school is more than just test outcomes or state of the art facilities – it’s a feeling. This is why I personally tour every prospective family through our school grounds, so you can explore our vibrant classrooms and meet our students and teachers, but, also, so you can get a feel for what it’s really like to be a part of our welcoming, family-oriented community.

I look forward to meeting your family and discussing how we can partner with you to support your child’s learning journey. I encourage you to download a copy of our Prospectus and book a Principal’s Tour to discover if Tarrington Lutheran School is the right choice for your family.
