The school offers a number of enrichment programs, offering further opportunities for students who display particularly high levels of skill or talent in academic domains, artistic aptitude or sporting abilities.
At Cottesloe Primary School we offer an innovative Critical and Creative Thinking program to our high achieving students in the Early Year of Schooling, Years 1 -4. We use a Philosophy for Schools approach and encourage the students to think deeply, consider different points of view and reflect on their learning.
Students consider philosophical questions in a reflective and critical manner and learn to give reasons for their point of view and value the views of others. They learn to negotiate with others and take risks with their learning.
Many students go on to participate in the North Metropolitan Education Region’s Primary Enrichment and Academic Challenge (PEAC) courses.
