Tagai’s vision is for students to participate in our 0-3yrs program 'Strait Start', then take their first step into formal schooling in Pre-Prep, enabling them access to a 14 year seamless education journey with us.
This journey will lead into higher education or employment.
This journey will pass through early, middle and senior phases of learning.
While these stages have their unique features, as a College, we can ensure the curriculum flows and spirals towards one destination - all our students completing year 12 with the skills and knowledge necessary to continue on their learning journey or to begin employment of their choice.
While our context is spectacularly unique, our charter is not. Whilst we acknowledge and celebrate our context through targeted traditional language and culture instruction, we commit to quality teaching and learning including assessment and reporting standards that could be found in any other Queensland school.
Tagai College’s signature pedagogy is Explicit Instruction and the model that is used throughout the college is based on the work of John Fleming as well as Dr Anita Archer and her colleague Dr Charles Hughes.
