Principal's Message

Congratulations to our wonderful staff, students and community on an exceptional term. Everyone is looking forward to a well-deserved holiday and rest! Stay safe and relax during the school holidays. School resumes on Monday 10th October 2022.


Please remember Thursday is a public holiday and the school is closed!

Make a Difference (MAD) Awards

On Thursday night, Miss Robertson and I had the pleasure of attending the MAD awards for the Callaghan and Newcastle network of schools. These Aboriginal awards recognise those students and staff in our community of schools who are making a difference to Aboriginal education. Our Didj and dance group​ performed at this ceremony. They were amazing! We were so proud. Congratulations Jesmond Public School!

K/1OU Attendance

Wow! What an incredible day we had on Wednesday. Jesmond Public School's Strategic Direction 3 is Attendance and Engagement. Mrs Kelly implemented an Attendance Improvement Sprint last term and K1OU had the highest improvement in our attendance percentage! As an incentive Mrs Kelly has paid for our class to go for a Pizza Picnic at Jesmond Park. It was a success, we played lots of games, ate delicious pizza and enjoyed the sun. We even had a special visitor (thanks for coming Mrs Uhrig), we loved seeing you and baby Marlo. Let's keep up our amazing attendance to hopefully win the next attendance celebration.

NAPLAN

Each year in May students in Year 3 and 5 complete NAPLAN. It assesses the skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life. NAPLAN covers skills in reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy.


This year both our year 3 and 5 students exceeded school targets in reading and achieved set numeracy targets. We are showing an upward trend in all areas of writing, reading and number. Well done.


The staff are participating in Collaboration meetings this week and will review and analyse the data further to identify areas of literacy and numeracy that require further development to ensure all students continuously improve.


Happy holidays everyone.

Kindergarten Enrolments

Jesmond Public School is taking enrolments for Kindergarten 2023. Informing the school over the next few weeks allows the school to plan for staffing, etc. If you have a child ready to start school next year, or know someone who does, please let the Administration Office know as soon as possible. We look forward to meeting many new students!
