About Us - Principals Message

Tyrrell College prides itself on living up to the motto of ‘Your Opportunity to Succeed’. We endeavour to provide a wide and engaging curriculum from Prep to Year 12 but we also enjoy participating in many extra-curricular activities. Our teachers have high expectations of both themselves and the students here at Tyrrell College. Our students are asked to be involved with decision making processes and we are always open to parent visits, calls and feedback.

We have students who consistently make their way into the state sporting events. For the past couple of years we have been involved with the State School Spectacular. Every year we run a school production – one year a Primary play, the next year a Secondary play. Each year we showcase the musical talents of students at the ‘Talent at Tyrrell’ event and the depth of talent is inspiring.

Tyrrell College has a fabulous camps programme designed to give students the opportunity to experience activities and adventure beyond Sea Lake. A surf camp, outdoor education camps, urban camp and alpine camp all add to our multitude of experiences offered. Every two years Tyrrell College runs a cultural immersion trip to our sister school in Spain which allows students to stay with a Spanish family and learn about Spanish culture. We have also been lucky enough to be involved with the School for Student Leadership where four Year 9 students go away for a term to learn leadership skills.

Overall, we are very lucky to be able to participate in so many varied activities and provide our students with every opportunity to succeed.
