Every day is a new beginning to make a difference
COOEE advocates and educates providing
appropriate cultural support within community
To be one of the leading holistic education and well-being centres for
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Our Purpose of COOEE Indigenous Family and Community Education Centre is focused around a holistic integrated approach; to work with the Indigenous community and stakeholders to address areas that contribute to the inability of the families and children to engage successfully in life and to access appropriate life skills, educational pathways and opportunities.
COOEE was founded upon the important role of Elders as the core source that operates on the key principles of respect and the enhancement of self-reliance and quality living through education which honours our languages, cultural traditions, practices and knowledge systems, locally, nationally and internationally.
Who are we?
