The centre is located in the New England heartland 18 kms from the university city of Armidale. Established in 1976, it occupies the site of a former small school. Access to the Swallowfield Wildlife Refuge and other properties and sites provides a range of venues in which students can complete many different field and environmental programs. The centre's programs cover elements of the environment of both natural and cultural (Aboriginal and European) significance.
Steeped in history, Thalgarrah Environmental Education Centre is one of the popular school in the Armidale area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
