Mrs. Jill Clay
I extend a warm welcome to you and your family! I am very proud to be the Principal of this wonderful school. It is a privilege for me to work with our students, our staff and our families to make our school they very best it can be. My aim is to lead our school community to enable us to work together to achieve our goals.
We aim to create a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment that is built on positive relationships; developing the whole student – emotionally, socially and academically. We care for and appreciate each of our students as the unique individuals that they are, each with distinct talents, interests and needs, and each with differing learning styles.
We provide an appealing and stimulating curriculum that is flexible and tailored to the needs of each and every student as we strive for high educational outcomes and personal bests for all of our students. Our passionate teachers ensure our students grow in confidence and capabilities and develop the skills for the rapidly changing, 21st century living. Engaging learning programs that cater for individual differences and learning styles are devised and delivered by our skilled, talented and dedicated teachers. We use innovative techniques, rich resources, proven instructional strategies and engaging programs to promote student learning. We develop in each of our students a curious, enquiring and discriminating mind, a desire for knowledge and a set of skills; linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, physical, emotional and social.
We want each of our students to leave school with the values of honesty, respect, responsibility, success and striving for excellence underpinning all that they do. Our students develop responsibility for their own behavior and the choices they make, and also a communal responsibility to assist their peers to do the same. Our students become strong in self-esteem and personal expectation and develop a healthy and respectful tolerance for others.
Jackson Elementary School is a friendly, vibrant, community-minded school, whose decisions always put our students first. We are very keen to involve our community in our learning, developing true partnerships that value each student. There are many opportunities for parental and community involvement. We hope that through your participation and interest you will also come to feel very much a part of our school and its warm and generous community.
