Sir John Sherbrooke Junior School

We are a 'Take Care' school

The School Council's latest venture

The recent school council project was to design a flag which represented our school and our community. Here you can see the design making in process and the finished article. Below is a description of our inspiration behind the completed design:

Our design was inspired by our community. The fourteen children making up Sir John Sherbrooke's School Council came up with the idea with the help of the whole school, who designed individual flags. The coal on the flag represents our coal mining community and, as it is the cornerstone of Calverton, the children decided to place the coal in the corners. They chose the colours white and reflex as they are our school colours and placed the logo of the school in the heart of the flag as it is the heart of our community (Calverton). They chose to place the logo within a hot air balloon as Sir John Sherbrooke’s motto is ‘the sky’s the limit’.

Huge thank you to my parent helper (Sarah and Alfie Casey's mum), who gave her afternoon to work with the school council :-)
