At St Kilda Primary School our student representative council is known as the Seito Kai.
As all of our students learn Japanese as part of their studies, we’ve incorporated some of the language into our daily life.
In Japanese Seito (生徒 (せいと)) means pupil and Kai (: 会 (カイ / ) is a meeting of people.
The Seito Kai are the voice of the student population and their input is welcomed and genuinely considered when decisions are being made about issues and events in the school.
Some Seito Kai Projects:
- Organised the sourcing of sustainably and ethically produced House T-shirts
- Created a Peace Garden within the Enchanted Garden
- Trialled a ‘Welcome to New Families’ Program
- Posted inspirational messages to students during lockdown
A message from our Seito Kai
SKPS is a warm and welcoming community with gorgeous students, staff, parents and carers. During this year and in the past we‘ve been working on reconciliation to the First Nations, fully accepting and embracing the LGBTQIAP+ community and working towards accomplishing our SKPS Master Plan. Our school presents so many opportunities to grow, in so many subjects. It is a place where ideas grow, a place where everyone can be themselves and a place of happiness. The school leadership group are the Seito Kai (Japanese for student council) and Ms Higgins and Ms O’Malley
Our wonderful Principal (Sue Higgins), Assistant Principal, (Jo O’Malley) and the whole staff team are always there to listen and share ideas. These are the sort of people who change the world for the better. In the office on the phone and there for you are Al and Billie, two hard workers and very kind people who help keep this school running along with Anabel, Nurse Kate, Ms Atchinson, Ms Borcek and all the other wonderful staff at SKPS.
