Sherbrooke Community School, situated in the leafy Dandenong Ranges, is a small Prep-12 government school that has been operating since 1985. With a capped student population of 160, students are grouped into four teaching teams; Prep – year 6, years 7-9, and VCE/VCAL years 10-12. Sherbrooke Community School is proud of the work it undertakes to provide a viable alternate educational setting. Sherbrooke students enjoy smaller class sizes enabling them to learn in an environment of inclusiveness and support.
We strive to develop a school community of empathic, passionate and active global citizens that strive for personal best. We endeavour to treat each student as a unique individual in a community setting.
Sherbrooke Community School believes in pathways for all. We offer academic and vocational pathways seeking to find the right match for each student to reach their destination, whether that choice be University, TAFE or training, or employment.
As part of Sherbrooke's curriculum, all students in years Prep-10 are required to provide evidence of their school-based learning through the Round Table assessment program. Round Tables involve students presenting to a panel consisting of teacher, peer/community member and parents as they reflect on their learning for the year.
We would like to invite all families to be part of this process to support your child and gain insight into their learning.
This year, the Round Tables are being held on one day, Thursday September 18. A booking sheet has gone home with each student, please return it asap with two preferences for each child.
Students are not required to attend school on this day, but must attend their allocated session time.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
