Creating a desire to learn that goes beyond the school walls.
Learning should be a positive, enjoyable experience which opens doors and creates opportunities. At Tong we believe education should also be about creating in all students a curiosity that makes them into lifelong learners.
Besides the school as a whole being one big community, we are divided into five separate communities, all of which contain students from years 7 to 13.
