Connells Point Public School
A new mural has been completed at Connells Point Public School thanks to Mrs Jessup. Jenni Jessup has taught at the school for over 20 years. She is a talented artist and an extremely dedicated teacher. She was approached by the Principal (Mrs Therese Corben) to complete a mural that was bright and had an Indigenous theme.
The artwork was influenced by Sally Morgan one of Australia's best known Aboriginal artists and writers. Sally's paintings tell the story of her people, their land and history. The mural which is approximately 50 metres long depicts the Georges River, which encloses Connells Point.
The mural took over one year to complete, including many school holidays and weekends. Over 500 students added a fish to the mural, as did the Minister of Education (the Honourable Adrian Piccoli) who visited last month. Staff and students would like to thank Mrs Jessup for her commitment to education and amazing artwork that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
