Our Values

South Coogee Primary School uses the Tribes Agreements. All staff participate in ongoing training in how to create a class and school community based on our five Tribes Agreements.

  • Mutual Respect
  • Attentive Listening
  • Appreciations
  • Personal Best
  • Right to Pass

These five Agreements are integrated into everything we do at South Coogee. Children learn about the Tribes Agreement through specific lessons, playing social games and through reminders during their interactions with each other, staff and community members.

Children receive STAR (Student Tribes Agreement Rewards) tokens from staff members for following the Tribes Agreements. We have found these positive rewards help to focus the children on what is expected of them and bonds our Factions as children strive to achieve their Faction Group Reward for receiving the most STARs.
