The Pared Foundation

PARED (Parents for Education) was established in 1982 as a personal initiative of parents and educators to operate schools and other educational projects which assist parents in their task as the primary educators of their children.

The founders of the PARED Schools have introduced into Australia an individualised system of education implemented in many schools throughout the world.

PARED schools are characterised by many features, prominent among these are - The system of education is personalised, seeking to integrate the pursuit of academic excellence, the acquisition of skills and the development of the student's character. The Personalised Tutorial System, pioneered in Australia by PARED, ensures that each child is helped to be the best person he or she can be. It facilitates the partnership between parents and school, the only way to ensure the children receive a holistic and efficacious education.

PARED founded Tangara School for Girls in 1982. Since then several other schools and campuses have been established throughout Sydney's metropolitan region: in Cherrybrook, Dural, Wahroonga, Belfield, Orchard Hills and Werrington.

Fulfilling its commitment to help parents be better educators, PARED also organises courses in effective parenting through Family Education Australia and publishes Perspective, a magazine which covers topics of concern and interest to the family.
