Sara Cohen Satellite

Teaching & Learning

Sara Cohen School is a specialist school that enrols students from 5 to 21 years of age with its base site located at 44 Rutherford Street. There are also three offsite satellite classes: two junior primary classes based at Concord School and one upper primary class based at Bathgate School.

At Concord school it is our vision to have students integrate into some mainstream programmes and whole school activities eg. the Life Ed Bus, Singing Assembly, and when we have visiting entertainers here. Some Concord students also get the opportunity to integrate with Sara Cohen students in their classes and playground. These students add a special dimension to Concord School. Integration has been difficult lately due to the Covid 19 Pandemic.

For a period this year, Sara Cohen classes will be operating in the Concord School Hall, whilst the new expansion build on their classrooms.
