South Coogee Public School provides a nurturing and welcoming environment for students from diverse cultural and socio-economic communities, accommodating 23 classes. The school population is made up with 35% of students from language backgrounds other than English, 10% of students come from Australian Defence Force families (supported by a part time Defence School Transition Aide) and 3% identify as Indigenous Australians.
A strong Parents and Citizens association supports a dedicated staff in providing high quality teaching and learning programs for all students. Also on site is a committee led OOSH facility and a community based full time day care centre for 2 to 5 year olds.
Our school is committed to the Visible Learning principles guided by the research of John Hattie. At South Coogee Public School we want to have the biggest influence on learning. Therefore, our focus is on the strategies that have been proven to have the strongest impact on learning.
All classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and computers with an increasing emphasis on Technology for Learning. There are high expectations for sporting endeavours, the performing arts and the provision of extracurricular programs.
