TIGS Open Day – a great reminder of all that is TIGS

This week, we have had the pleasure of meeting new families as they consider the right School for their children. Central to this experience is providing prospective parents insight into our normal school routines and most importantly to allow them to hear from our students. Our students are impressive, they demonstrate in real-time the positive impact of a TIGS education.  I am always encouraged as I move around campus and engage with TIGS students from Prep right up to our Year 12 students. They are positive, socially competent, respectful, articulate and connected.

This is reflective of our Intentional and explicit Wellbeing Programme influenced by positive psychology and restorative justice. We think about and plan for the education of the whole people at TIGS.  

Excellence is a core commitment for every member of our school community with rigour as a key component. We define rigour and personal excellence as being possible for every student when we have High care, High expectations and High effort 

This approach is applied to all areas of school life and endeavour and as a result, we have high performing students in sport, the arts, and service activity as well as academically. We regularly celebrate effort and persistence as well as an achievement as a community.

Our School values are founded in Christian belief and behaviour and demonstrated by our inclusive and diverse community, an emphasis on relationships, stewardship and inclusion, the value of the individual as well as the promotion of community and belonging. The importance of effort, persistence and personal excellence is also founded in our enduring School values. All of these values in action create, in partnership with parents, the TIGS graduate. That is; young men and women who know and value themselves, who are able to have positive relationships with others, who are competent and therefore confident and who are articulate, values-driven and connected. Young people who are equipped to go out into the world to make a difference.
We have the pleasure of seeing and teaching these young people every day – what a delight!  It is easy to become accustomed and take for granted our very privileged situation. Planning our Open Day this year has provided a wonderful opportunity to be reminded of just how extraordinary our school is – especially the people who come each day to work and learn together. After a disrupted and unusual 2020, it is spectacular to have parents and other visitors returning to campus and to be able to share with you all that is wonderful about our great School.
