Class organisation may vary from year to year as it is dependent on the number of students in the school and in each grade. 

Classes may be:

Parallel- varied ability in each class

Composite- combination of two or more grades

Extension- There are extension classes at the school in Years 5 and 6. Entry is dependent on academic capacity and performance.

The decision of class organisation for each year is made after discussion and consideration of many factors.



Out of hours school care is available on the school site, providing a quality and convenient service to the community. This service is operated by the community. A fee is payable for this service. Vacation care is also available.

Cherrybrook OOSH Care Inc. is a non-profit, community based Centre, managed by a volunteer parent committee. OOSH is designed to be a fun & caring environment for children of Cherrybrook Public School whose parents work or study. We provide a safe, caring & stimulating OOSH environment. We have qualified dedicated staff to ensure the children enjoy their OOSH experience.
