Cooee Primary School Tas – The Schools Plus fair education program has arrived in Tasmania, with five schools from the region working together on a three-year project that will allow students to transition from primary school to home secondary school. Teachers from Burnie High School, Somerset Primary School, Natone Primary School, Cooee Primary School and Burnie Primary School will undertake professional training to improve teaching at primary and secondary level. The cluster project is the first of its kind in the state, thanks to support from the Tasmanian Community Foundation.
With several students from participating elementary schools transferring to Burnie High, Burnie High assistant principal James Thompson sees the project as a positive.

“We have a different student body every year from kindergarten through seventh grade,” he said. “The more connection we have with them, I think the transition from elementary to high school should be easier.”
About The Area
“We already have a process of change in place from a social or welfare point of view, which is our main focus,” Thompson said.
“With this funding, it will also allow us to create a learning perspective where fifth and sixth grade teachers will work with seventh and eighth grade teachers specifically around the content to make sure it’s relevant to the elementary. middle schools. .
“Obviously there’s some great stuff going on in primary and secondary schools and we’ll be looking at how we can bring those things together and the assessment team will make sure that a student just goes to Somerset Primary or Burnie Primary and then come to Burnie High School is a consistent way that we’re rolling out ratings.”
While teachers from participating schools will work together to help implement learning strategies through the project, parents will also play an important role.
Turning The Story Around
Rosemary Cohn, CEO of Schools Plus, believes in the project’s potential. “Through the Fair Education Program, we have seen the transformation that can happen when schools, families and communities work together to improve the outcomes of their students. We are very pleased to be working with the Tasmanian Community Foundation to bring fair education to the Burnie community. “

To celebrate National Biodiversity Month, Cradle Coast NRM and John Bowden Discovery have teamed up to offer fun and educational activities to schools in North West Tasmania.
The students were surprised by a man affectionately known as Ranger John, who took a kindergartener and a group of children with him to various whales and dolphins, that the sea is home.
The Education Gap
Cradle Coast NRM Education Officer Sherry Jeffrey said the students really enjoyed spending time with Ranger John.
“They come here to learn about the fish and the different types of fish in the ocean before they take the fish out of the sand,” he said.
“The program that Cooee has put in place is fantastic – five classes and six classes come every two weeks to clean the beach, clean up weeks or replace some native plants,” Bowden said.
“Cradle Coast NRM do fantastic work with these types of groups and the kids really enjoy getting out on the beach and learning about their beach.” Welcome to Cooee Primary, our family school located in the best area in the beautiful north. The western side is approximately 4km from the Burnie CBD.
