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 Grade 5/6 students built rockets and invited the school community to their launch. Mission control managed to launch all but two! And the rocket rescuers recovered all but the rockets that are waiting for a strong wind to get them out of the trees. Thank you to the parents for coming out to support this annual event. Our students are Engineers in the making! ... See MoreSee Less
Reminds me of some maths that could be gone over with the kids about center of mass, and center of pressure and other things about flight of model rockets that applies directly to rockets of all sizes, including those of much larger scale like those at SpaceX and NASA. So sad I missed this. Would be interesting to use some nanos and other component electronics to build some flight sensors and collect some data. www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mMK6iSZsAs
