7We are currently engaged in revegetating our school grounds with indigenous species and removing all non indigenous plants that are seen to be weeds. Watch for lots of progress in 2017!
The school has sheep on the premises and the students are encouraged to assist in their care and wellbeing. We also have a chook shed and a small flock of chickens who regularly produce eggs for our hospitality program and canteen.
The Animal Carers Club gets together every Thursday lunchtime to help care for our critters. Their plan is to breed more chickens and perhaps get some alpacas as well!
our kitchen garden
This year we are looking to expand our growing space and get a food forest going. Kids from the GEMS Club work in the gardens every Wednesday. Produce from our gardens goes into our canteen to make healthy lunches for our students. Check out the "Sherbie Salad" - it's grown by us!
We are lucky to have a leafy, large and picturesque setting for our school.
Grounds Committee members meet monthly and organise regular working bees at the school. They manage outdoors maintenance such as paths, gardens, weeding, plantings, etc.
They work very closely with our sustainability committee.
Our Sustainability Committee keeps our school on track in terms of saving energy, conserving water, native species revegetation, creating wildlife corridors, caring for our farm animals and real food production in our orchard and kitchen gardens. Please see the Sustainability page for more information.
Facility Committee members care for buildings and structures at the school. They paint, repair and improve wherever needed.
snow at sherbrooke
It doesn't happen every year but the kids LOVE it when it does!
Everyone loves a good snowball fight and building snow people. Rest assured the staff enjoy snowy fun as much as the kids!
