Tenison Woods


The Tenison Woods Community is home to the Grade 3/4 classes. 

This year our focus is on the Arts, so all our classes are named after artists - both visual and performing.

Mauboy

Mauboy was chosen as our class name this year because of Jessica Mauboy's passion for learning and helping all Australian children experience the best education possible. In 2009 she became the spokesperson for the Indigenous Literacy Project which aims to provide books and learning materials to school, libraries and women's centres in remote areas.  Later she became the ambassador for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation which raises awareness of literacy in remote indigenous communities.
Furthermore, Jessica is a real role model who is looked up to and respected by our youth. She continuously shows them that no matter who you are or where you come from you can inspire to succeed and achieve your goals. She has definitely proved this at such a young age by becoming a pop singer, songwriter and an actress. 


Jackman

Hugh Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in a variety of film genres. He is commonly known for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men or most recently, The Greatest Showman. He had originally studied journalism but made the brave decision to make a living out of doing something he loved instead - acting. He didn't settle for mediocre and worked hard and to the best he could to put himself on top. As a philanthropist, Jackman is a longtime contributor to many charities including microcredit -the extension of very small loans to prospective entrepreneurs in impoverished countries. Not only has Jackman worked hard to follow his dreams and achieve success but he also gives back to society.
