Talara Primary College, situated in Currimundi on the Sunshine Coast, is a P-6 Education Queensland State Primary School which was opened in 1998 with 300 students enrolled. The school was built to provide a primary educational facility west of Nicklin Way and north of Caloundra Road, to service the rapidly developing high density housing area being developed at that time. As our name reflects, the College set out to be a little different and provide a learning community that is passionate about striving for excellence in all that we do. Today Talara Primary College caters for over 1100 keen and enthusiastic students eager to learn. It is a young school which can be proud of its achievements.
Talara has earned an impressive reputation for its innovative curriculum which is recognised by both the school community and the wider educational community. The school is committed to high standards in all areas of education. It is well served by dedicated, enthusiastic, caring and committed staff who most willingly and ably share their talents and abilities with students and other professionals.
Talara Primary College enjoys the support of a number of local business and community groups. The school employs an open and positive approach to parent volunteers which ensures the parent community feel welcomed to participate in their child’s learning experiences. Open afternoons and culmination sessions further enhance the positive relationships the school has built with the parent body.
Our school vision
Talara Primary College affords all of our students a hand-crafted curriculum which engages, enables and empowers students as information architects who can think, investigate, create, communicate, participate, reflect and understand within the globalised society of the 21st century.
Talara is a founding member of the Caloundra Coalition of State Schools (CCSS). The Coalition was established in 2004 and is made up of five primary state schools, two P-12 colleges, one secondary school and one special school. The Coalition is located in a vibrant and innovative tourism, health and business precinct with a commitment from all schools to work innovatively together to create new opportunities to our students that otherwise would not be possible.
