About SKPS

School Profile

At St Kilda Primary School we value every child’s unique qualities, and we respect and appreciate their differences, strengths and areas for growth. Our teaching and learning programs reflect the holistic needs of students, recognising and catering for different learning styles and always celebrating student achievement.

As our children progress through the school we want them to be confident, inquisitive and caring people with a joyful attitude towards school and learning. Our student leaders (The Seito Kai) play a key role in the life of the school and encourage their peers to flourish.

Our school values are Creativity, Love of Learning, Friendliness, Resilience, Teamwork and Resilience.

We offer our students a safe, supportive, challenging and nurturing environment, enabling them to reach their full potential and become life-long learners. We value teamwork and promote respectful relationships. We want all of our children to develop resilience and empathy for others. We aim for them to become positive young people who have good hearts and the tools and skills to make an impact on the world around them.

Our school is like a family; we welcome and embrace all students, parents and staff and we relish diversity. Our programs reflect the multi-cultural, artistic and varying socio-economic nature of our local community.

Our school is supportive of the first nations members of our society. We teach our children the history of our country and about the issues experienced by indigenous people today.

Our leading teachers are regarded as experts in their field. They support teams of teachers who plan together to provide the most effective and engaging learning experiences for our students.

Our school community really cares about the world. We have a strong focus on sustainability and the environment, with initiatives in biodiversity, energy, waste and water.

We are currently constructing a state of the art learning space for our children which will offer an inspiring learning environment in which they will learn, play and experience the world.

St Kilda Primary School was built in 1875 on the lands of the Boon Wurrung people, and we acknowledge/pay our respects to the traditional owners and the elders, both past and present.

We respectfully acknowledge the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of this land and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
