Coogee Primary School (5112)

School Overview

Located approximately 10 kilometres south of Fremantle, Western Australia, Coogee Primary School established in 1894 nestles in a tranquil environment with lush gardens and shade trees offers education for 4 to 13 years old. Between 10% and 15% are third or fourth generation Coogee students. This demographic element, stable staff and focus on the individual enable us to maintain a small school feel in face of significant growth particularly in the past two years.

Whilst we are a local in-take school many enquiries are received from parents from outside of our boundaries and the most common reasons given for this are our positive reputation for student welfare, quality education programs, inclusivity, and behaviour management.

Coogee offers a number of special programs including music, physical education, learning difficulties, Languages Other Than English (Indonesian). We also have a strong School Volunteer Program. Coogee has a commitment to values throughout the curriculum and was a pilot school for a Commonwealth Values Project. The school has been recognised for many environmental achievements.

All our students are taught in modern air-conditioned classrooms, all with multimedia facilities and a wet area for arts and crafts. Outside, our early childhood students enjoy their own outdoor play area, sandpit and water play area. Netball courts, cricket nets, a large oval and three separate covered playgrounds provide challenging physical opportunities for our year 1 - 7 students.

The Coogee community is proud of our school and so are we.
