About Stuart Park Primary School
The Stuart Park school community is involved in a whole school process called Tribes. Tribes aims to create a culture that maximises learning and human development.
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 and human development throughout a school community.
The process involves us all in making five agreements. They are:
1. Appreciations, no put downs
Children are shown how to give meaningful appreciations to others and agree not to use put downs.
2 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.
3. Attentive listening
Children are taught how to listen, not only with their ears but with their eyes and their heart.
4. Mutual respect
Respect for each others’ feelings, ideas and thoughts is crucial in our community.
5. Personal best
Doing the best you can do in everything you do is also crucial in our community.
