Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Tamborine Mountain College! We are an independent and co-educational College for Pre-Prep to Year 12 students, providing a complete learning journey with an outstanding, family orientated culture.

It is my privilege to be the current Principal of Tamborine Mountain College, a place where education is not just a journey, but a collective endeavour to inspire, nurture, and empower each student, fostering a love for learning that goes beyond the confines of the classroom.

During my twenty plus years at TMC, I have witnessed the growth and development of our College. Though the size of our campus has increased, one thing remains constant - our warm and nurturing family-like feel.

Where we are in the world is truly a special place. Located in the beautiful Gold Coast hinterland, our campus is only a short drive off the M1 yet surrounded by rainforest. It’s no wonder Lonely Planet named our area one of the top 10 regions in the world in 2022.  

Our students come to us from the mountain, the northern Gold Coast, and from the Scenic Rim. We are truly independent with no religious affiliation or instruction. Our vision is to empower every student. Our staff are dedicated, and committed to professional growth. Our students are seen and we care. 

Our College is a place where each child can shine, where they will never get lost in the crowds, where we all strive for victory and valour. 

We offer student–centred learning in a caring, safe, family-like environment. We value the individual, and recognise and celebrate personal success and achievement.

It is the spirit of achievement, collaboration, and compassion that defines Tamborine Mountain College. Our successes are a testament to the dedication of everyone in our College community – students, staff, parents, and supporters. 

Together, we are not just teaching curriculum; we are crafting a future of kindness, integrity, equity, and success

I encourage you to visit us in person to experience our College’s wonderful personality, our committed and professional staff and to meet some of our amazing students. We look forward to welcoming you into our College family.

"We believe the key to success is to enjoy what you are learning and to have the confidence to follow your dreams and desires."
