A message from the Principal, Matt Smith
Redfern Jarjum College aims to provide a culturally appropriate education that encourages students to develop strength in their identity as learners and as members of the community.
With a strong focus on engagement and creativity, Jarjum offers students opportunities to learn in an environment tailored to their individual needs. We recognise the importance of community partnerships and work closely with a number of cultural institutions across Sydney to enrich our academic program with contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
Jarjum provides a caring and secure space for children to grow and learn. We acknowledge that as children grow, they encounter challenges and we create a safe environment to confront and overcome these challenges as a community. We want to build a love of learning in our students along with a confidence that they can achieve their potential through commitment to active participation in school. A special focus at Jarjum is developing students’ commitment to caring for creation through engagement with their environment, their land and traditional local knowledge. At the core of our work at Jarjum is a focus on finding God and the Spirit in all things and in all people. Care for the individual underpins everything we do.
