The Jean Seabrook Memorial School is now in recess indefinitely, from January 2022. In its place we are offering small group teaching for students with specific learning disabilities so that students can remain in their mainstream school (or home school) but attend our sessions 1-4 mornings per week.  Please contact for more information. 


Enrolment is considered on a case-by-case basis. We prefer children to have a full assessment at Seabrook McKenzie Centre prior to enrolling. If you have other assessments you feel would be suitable please contact us to discuss further. The final decision on a child’s enrolment is made once we can determine if JSMS is the best place for the child.

School hours

9.00am – 2.30pm

Lunch half hour break

Our finish time is 2.30pm,  recognising families can have children at other schools to collect at 3pm.

At times, we will request parents collect their children from alternative locations when attending school trips.


Students have homework allocated each day, generally practising their sight words, reading book and spelling. We do however appreciate some students find school is enough for them and homework then becomes challenging. Homework is never enforced, only encouraged.

School Uniform

Light blue polo shirt. Navy blue shorts or track-pants. Navy blue sweatshirt.

These items can be purchased at The Warehouse, K-Mart and Postie Plus.Our school emblem is sold at the office: 3 for $9, to be sewn onto the polo shirt and sweatshirt.


Stationery is provided to your child by the school, costs will be invoiced with your child’s account. The only extra requirement is a ring binder and dividers.

Parent Facebook Page

Our current parents run a Facebook page to keep up to date with school trips, organise car-pooling and general information sharing. This is a private page for current parents only. There is a public Facebook page here.

Assessment and Reporting

Twice a year – Term 2 & 4, students will receive a written report detailing their progress within each subject. Term 1 & 3, parents have the opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher for parent interviews.

End of year concert

At the end of the school year, students will perform a concert for parents, grandparents and friends, this is followed by a shared lunch and our traditional water fight on the last day of school.
