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.

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

The goal was to get to Sugar Plum Island and back (our name for the small island that is approximately 400 meters from our waterfront). The students could choose from many modes of transportation - ski, snowshoe, kicksled, or walk. It was a great afternoon of conversation and community. ... See MoreSee Less

It has become a Tawingo College tradition to announce the annual spring school show at the Holiday Assembly in December. This year, the tradition continued, but...our incredibly talented Drama teachers prepared a "trailer" for the school audience, which starred the college faculty. It was so much fun to make and to watch, that we may have created a new tradition... ... See MoreSee Less

Our Grade 5/6 students have been studying birds of prey. They read the novel, "Falcon Wild", completed a project on a bird of their choice, and enjoyed a fantastic visit to Muskoka Birds of Prey where Matt shared his knowledge and expertise about falconry and other beautiful and fascinating birds. The kids haven't stopped talking about it! ... See MoreSee Less

When our students speak entirely in French for a full period, they earn tickets (billets). When they have collected a significant number of billets, they get to choose a special activity. Our amazing and creative French teacher, Ms. Vanasse, set up a French Carnaval for the Grade 5/6 students. Smart and lucky kids! ... See MoreSee Less
