Principal’s Message

Welcome to Sherbourne Primary School.  We are very proud of our beautiful school, its location, facilities, programs and the wonderful people who make up our community – students, families and staff.

We are united in our vision for all students to be literate, numerate and curious with a love of learning and the skills to pursue this. We aim to develop articulate, collaborative and compassionate community members who care about the environment and each other.

We see our school as the hub of our community, providing a sense of community, connection and belonging whilst providing a “whole child” focused education for our students- academic, social, emotional and physical. Our whole school approach to high quality teaching and learning practice, delivering the Victorian Curriculum, is built upon curiosity, appropriate challenge and growth, enabling the best achievement outcomes for all students.

It is important our students understand what they are learning about, why they are learning it and how they will know they are successful. Students are taught to reflect upon their learning, understand their learning progress and, together with their teacher, set “stretch” goals in their learning. Activating agency in their learning develops engaged, connected students who are self-motivated, flexible, creative collaborators.

Sherbourne students take pride in their school and learning. Our shared values of Respect, Responsibility, Learning and Teamwork are a framework for how our community members work, learn and play together. Our student have authentic voice in our school. We value their thoughts, opinions and ideas in making Sherbourne the best school it can be.

We welcome you to make a time to visit and tour. Please contact the school office on 9434 7142 to arrange a mutually convenient time during the school day. We like you to experience a real day in the life of Sherbourne PS and have the opportunity to interact with our students and teachers to really appreciate the warm, vibrant feel of our school.

I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to the Sherbourne community,

Maree Seymour
