Welcome to Tawingo College
At Tawingo College, we develop great minds, big hearts, and strong character. Our students consistently look outwards – to others and the world around them. That’s why they achieve both academic success and personal growth during their time at Tawingo College that continues through High School and College/University. Small class sizes allow students to experience enhanced curriculum, greater opportunity to learn important life skills, and the chance to discover their true potential. Explore our website to learn more about Tawingo College or contact our principal Tia Pearse at (705) 789-5890.
Children are happiest, healthiest, and most open to learning when they are outside interacting with nature. Tawingo College K-Pals (ages 3 – 5) spend most of every day outside exploring our incredible 270-acre site. Our small class sizes and inspiring teachers encourage them to be awe-filled, curious, grounded, responsible, secure, creative and connected. We believe Outdoor Kindergarten at Tawingo College is the way to encourage, and celebrate the values, skills, and traits we will so desperately need in the next generation. Find out more.

As a high school student, my son is doing very well in his academic classes and I credit his Grade 8 year at Tawingo College – the positive influence and the opportunities he was given.

It's Story Time with a Tawingo College teacher! Today, Mr. L reads us one of his favourite stories. Enjoy! ... See MoreSee Less
I watched this because I miss Jeff so much. What a great human being, what a book!
Hello Mr.L I miss you. Hope everyone is well! Say hi to everyone!
Thank you Mr. L!
Hi Jeff! Jeff Laughton I miss you! So nice to see you here. ❤
As the Laughtons travelled one direction down Ravenscliffe road, Mrs. Pearse and Ms. V cleaned up the other direction and found lots of garbage, recyclables, and "treasures"—including a car bumper and an odd bag of animal bones! ... See MoreSee Less
Good job done

Happy Earth Day!
The Tawingo College students are strong advocates for and stewards of our beautiful world. So EARTH DAY is a BIG DEAL around here!
If we were all at school together today, we would spend some of the day beautifying our little piece of Earth.
So, students, today we challenge you to beautify your own yard, or your neighbourhood, or your street. If you are up for the challenge, please send us before and after pictures so we can see the results of your hard work!
Don't forget to wear gloves, separate recycling from garbage, don't pick up anything that you think might be dangerous, and stay a safe distance away from others. If you find any treasure - we'd love to see it!
Thank you for caring about Earth! ... See MoreSee Less
gotta love those gates to freedom!

A message for the Tawingo community from Mr. McTurk (Grade 7/8 teacher) and his family...
Dear Tawingo College Community,
Alexandra and I feel so grateful to be part of such a generous, caring, and supportive group of people. You welcomed me back to Tawingo College in September with open arms and have now showered us with warmth and love as we welcome our son, Gordon, into this big, beautiful world. We are truly grateful. We feel very fortunate that our son is part of this wonderful place, with all of you.
Thank you for congratulating me in the parking lot. Thank you for the most generous and thoughtful gifts. Thank you for the parenting advice…and please, keep it coming!
The generosity and genuine excitement you have shown me and my family has helped to make this a very exciting time for all three of us.
The future is looking bright! Thanks for being part of the present - we look forward to what lies ahead.
Sincerely…straight from the heart,
Fraser, Alexandra, and Gordon McTurk ... See MoreSee Less
Oh my! Gordon’s eyes.❤️
Sitting in the forest minds and hearts alive. A picture is worth a thousand words.
Mrs. White gave new meaning to Pancake Tuesday! Not only did we eat pancakes for lunch, but we played pancake games and ran through pancake obstacle courses! We didn't know pancakes could be so fun! ... See MoreSee Less
Our annual Winter Family Fun Night was perfect! Big flakes of snow fell while our families went skiing on trails lit with lanterns, tubing down the terraces, played Broomball under the lights, and enjoyed cookies and hot chocolate by the fire. Thank you to the families who came to play in the dark! ... See MoreSee Less
Wow! fantastic photos, Sarah! Looks like a fun-filled night
