Welcome from the Principal & School Council President
It is with immense pleasure that we welcome you to St Kilda Primary School’s website. The vibrant website is a true reflection of life at our school: happy, colourful, energetic, evolving and engaging.
We truly believe St Kilda Primary is a magnificent school full of wonderful, enthusiastic, caring people. At our school every child is valued as a special person with extraordinary abilities. Our school embraces diversity and reflects the multi-cultural, artistic and varying socio economic nature of our local community. Students are provided with a safe, supportive, challenging and nurturing environment enabling them to reach their full potential in becoming life-long learners. Teaching and learning programs reflect the holistic needs of students, recognising and catering for different learning styles and celebrating student achievement.
Staff are committed to developing strong relationships with our students and play an active role in assisting them to be responsible and active members of their community. We believe that this is best achieved through strong partnerships between home, school and links with the wider community.
Our school truly reflects the cultural diversity of our local and, indeed, our Australian community. Through classroom programs children learn to develop an appreciation of different cultures and deepen their understanding of, and respect for, differences through their friendships with other children. We teach our children about our environment, Australia and its past, inclusive of our indigenous people. Children learn about the importance of behaviours that demonstrate acceptance, respect and understanding of all people who inhabit our land and our planet.
Our school’s values of: Creativity, Love of Learning, Friendliness, Resilience, Teamwork and Respect underpin the behaviours that are positively promoted and explicitly taught at St Kilda Primary School. We hope that these values are shared in the children’s family lives, too.
Welcome to our wonderful school!
School Council President
