Jameson Campus

    The Jameson community

    Jameson Community, or Mantamaru as it is traditionally known, is situated 125 km east of Warburton. Many residents of Jameson were educated at the Warburton Mission.  After the Mission closed, Jameson grew as an outstation of Warburton. Later, in 1976 the community was incorporated.

    When Blackstone closed for a time, families moved over to Jameson and remained there. Today numbers have diminished and about 60-80 people live in the Jameson community though the number fluctuates.

    Our programs

    We are strongly focused on the development of social and emotional skills and this is incorporated into our curriculum through the use of Classroom Management Strategies (CMS) fundamentals.

    We use a variety of literacy and numeracy programs to enhance the educational outcomes of the students, and have seen success in these areas.
