On behalf of the P&C Association, welcome to Talara Primary College.   We hope you and your family settle into your new school life quickly and grow to value the commitment to excellence in education on offer at Talara Primary College.  We look forward to you becoming a part of our wonderful school community.
 
The P&C Association  is an integral part of the school.  Since the school opened in 1998, the P&C Association has raised valuable money to assist the school in its mission to continually improve resources and facilities.  By the end of 2013, the P&C Association will have contributed in excess of  $390,000 to the school over the last 6 years —making an unquestionable difference to each and every child’s school experience.  In 2010, the P&C Association’s commitment to the school was a record breaking $78,000.
