The Western Australian Curriculum is the basis for leaching and learning at Cooinda Primary along with a commitment from all staff to offer students a broad and balanced curriculum that is embedded in our contemporary learning environment.

The Cooinda Teaching and Learning Model outlines our approach to ‘rich learning’ for all students and the aspects which ensure that students are engaged in learning in order to achieve their personal best in a safe and inclusive environment.

In building lifelong learners, Cooinda Primary School’s learning program has a strong emphasis on higher order thinking skills (HOTS) and collaborative learning in order to immerse students in learning that encourages critical and creative thinking, problem solving and collaboration. Our use of modern technologies as tools for learning also engages our students in developing these skills.

Learning programs at Cooinda Primary School provide support and extension for students as they require it. By understanding how students learn and identifying their strengths and weaknesses, teachers are able to make accommodations to cater to the learning needs of all students in their class.
