Sir John Sherbrooke Junior School

We are a 'Take Care' school

Working from Home

The content on this page is for any child who can't be in school for a valid reason, but is able to do some work at home. The aim is that children are still able to access some learning, even when they are unable to attend school.

What is the Coronavirus (Covid-19)?

This link takes you to a slide show that explains what the Coronavirus is, why things are closing, how we can stay safe and help calm any worries children might have.
