St Francis de Sales College - Jen Ness-Ferry

Year 7-8 Leader nominated for Australia's Best Teachers News Corp Series


We congratulate our Year 7-8 Leader, Jen Ness-Ferry, on her nomination for the Australia's Best Teachers series featured in the Sunday Mail over the weekend.

Jen is one of thirty six teachers chosen to feature in the latest Australia's Best Teachers campaign that runs across News Corp Australia’s weekend newspapers and digital platforms, in partnership with ANZ, Teachers Mutual Bank, Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools, Care For Kids, Griffith University and PwC.

News Corp put the call out for the public to nominate Australia’s Best Teachers, and foster mother and parent of the College Beck Bolton nominated Jen. Ms Bolton said in the article "Ms Ness-Ferry had a “one-of-a-kind” ability to see “all her students and their needs”, especially those who are neurodiverse or processing trauma."

Jen is part of our dedicated team of teachers and Education Support Officers who support the learning and wellbeing of the young people in our community.
