Travel to School

Kiss and Drop: If you drive your child to school, please use the designated "kiss and drop" zone outside the front gate. Pull over into the "kiss and drop" area, kiss your child goodbye then pull out again. If there is a queue, please be patient as the safest place to let your child out is at the end of the "kiss and drop" area - NOT in the middle of Rosebery Road! Please be aware that the "kiss and drop" zone only operates in the morning not the afternoon. 

Bus: Hillsbus currently operates a service to and from school. Current services include 2609, 2509, 2601. Details on how to apply for a school bus pass can be found here

Walking: If your child walks to school it is most important that he or she enters the school through the front gate on Rosebery Road and not through the teacher's car park. 

Bike: A bike rack situated near the Park Ridge side gate is available for students to use. All students riding bikes to school must wear a helmet. One child per bike!

School History

Sherwood Ridge Public School opened its doors to students for the first time on 28 January 2004. At this time the school had 8 mainstream classes between Kindergarten and Year 6 and 2 support classes. The founding Principal of Sherwood Ridge is Mrs Jan Marshall. The current substantive Principal is Tracy Anderson appointed in 2011. Jody Sullivan is currently relieving as Principal in 2019. In the weeks following the school's inception, students, parents and teachers came together to give birth to: four sporting houses - Air, Fire, Earth and Water; three core values - community, respect and learning; and the school motto "From Each Their Best".
