Coogee Public School Learning Powers

At Coogee PS we have five Learning Powers. Learning Powers are way learners engage in and relate to learning process, also known as the ‘Habits of Mind’.

Learning Powers are linked with the ‘Learner’ from our PBL and further develop engagement and deep understanding of the learning process and how to
