Tangara girls shone at the Hills Zone Athletics Carnival yesterday, with almost half our squad progressing to AICES Athletics, meaning they placed in the top three for their events.

Special congratulations to Maya McMullen who was named the 14 Year Girl Age Champion; Sumika Nishihara who was named 14 Year Girl Runner-Up; Francesca Sugiaman 16 Year Girl Runner-Up; and Christine Abrams 17 Year Girl Runner-Up.

2019 Captains

There was a lot of excitement Monday afternoon at the announcement of the 2019 Tangara Captain, Chantal Kos, and Vice Captain, Katie Lang. These girls were elected on behalf of the whole Tangara family by those who know them best: their Year 11 classmates and the Secondary teachers who have worked with them closely over these last few years.

Chantal and Katie will lead with their outstanding example as Tangara girls; their personal quest for all-round excellence; and their striving to be women of character.

We will conduct a Leadership Inauguration ceremony at the end of this term, when our current Year 12 leaders will hand over the baton. The new Captain, Vice Captain and their team will take up their leadership duties from the beginning of Term 4. Congratulations Chantal and Katie!

IPSHA Performing Arts Festival

Tangara’s Primary Choir took to the stage on Tuesday night at the magnificent Sydney Town Hall. They performed The Muppets Medley, with fantastic singing, dancing and colourful costumes. I felt very proud to be Principal! The evening culminated in a Combined Schools Choir performance. Thank you to Mrs Harrison for developing the girls to such a high standard, and to the teachers and parents who generously supported the girls on the night.
