Sherbrooke Community School is a small Prep to Year 12 school in Sassafras. Students come from a wide area and are taught a comprehensive state school curriculum. In 2012 a VCAL program was introduced alongside the varied VCE program. Emphasis is placed on small class sizes that provide opportunity for students to excel in areas of interest to them. Sherbrooke commits to sustainability and students get the chance to work in the beautiful grounds and interact with school sheep Honey, Indie and Peta, as well as a flock of productive chickens. Students are not required to wear a uniform and there is no bell system. Buses run frequently from Belgrave Station and surrounding areas and from the school grounds in the afternoon. Sherbrooke has recently upgraded its buildings with the BER project and offers students a chance to learn in beautiful surroundings. Further information can be accessed on the website or by phoning the office to book a tour. Prep places are very limited so it is advisable to approach the school early if you are looking for a place.
