The Principal, staff and school council have strived to provide a positive learning environment maximising the opportunities for all individuals to achieve and succeed. There is a very rich provision of programs including Art, PE, Sport, Japanese (LOTE) and Music. Extension programs offered at Sherbourne include the da Vinci Program (gifted & talented program) and the as well as Tournament of Minds, Gateways programs and the State School Spectacular. We also run a school choir and private instrumental lessons. Our shared values are the basis for all we do at Sherbourne. We actively encourage all students to become effective and responsible citizens who are encouraged to accept ownership of their own learning, to work co-operatively in teams and to participate actively in the life of the school. Numerous opportunities are provided for students to exercise and develop their leadership potential within formal and informal settings at every class level. Each grade is represented on the Junior School Council, which meets weekly. School Captains, Environmental Captains and House Captains are elected by the student body. Every person in our school is expected to share the responsibility for making our school the best it can be.

Sherbourne is exemplary for its quality teaching and learning practices and processes and has hosted many educational representatives over this time, local, national and international. Staff have been in demand to host Professional Development for other schools sharing excellent practice.

We have developed extensive community links and programs including Police in Schools, clinics run for students by local sports clubs and Fire Education. Enrichment opportunities include the Scientists in Schools program, participation in the Montmorency traders Christmas windows, choir performances, State Schools Spectacular as well as the VIP program in Year 5 and 6. Whole school activities have become tradition at Sherbourne and include Carols on the Oval, the Golden Goose Literary Awards, Sports carnivals, visiting pantomime, Jump Rope, Literacy and Numeracy Week celebrations, the Billy Cart Derby, and Footy Day.

Sherbourne is a school of excellence, in the personnel and physical senses. As a community we look forward to working together to further develop Sherbourne Primary School as a dynamic and positive learning environment – a great place to be!
