The Casuarina Street school community is involved in a whole school process called Tribes. Tribes aims to create a culture that maximises learning, human development and inclusivity.
Tribes is not a curriculum, nor a program or list of activities. It is a "process" – a way to establish a positive culture for learning, human development and creating an inclusive school community.
The process involves us all in making six agreements. They are:
Children are shown how to give meaningful appreciations to others.
No Put Downs
Agree not to use put downs.
The Right To Pass
In group situations, if a person feels unsure or unsafe joining in an activity then there will be no compulsion to do so.
Children are taught how to listen, not only with their ears but with their eyes and their heart.
Respect for each others' feelings, ideas and thoughts is crucial in our community.
Achieve Personal Best
Doing the best you can do in everything you do is also crucial in our community
