Community Engagement

How to get involved

The St Kilda Primary School is a vibrant, treasured and inclusive space located in the heart of the St Kilda community. We pride ourselves on building strong connections with local families, neighbours, kindergartens and the wider community.

Our greatest priority is the wellbeing of our community and the development of the whole child and creating strong relationships is very important to us.

The voluntary Class Community Representatives play a significant role in the functioning of the school. You have a unique and valuable opportunity to help our school community thrive and to play your part in building a strong and positive community of parents, teachers and children.

The role focuses on engaging and connecting parents with classroom activities. You will enhance our school community spirit, contribute to fundraising activities and encourage open and engaging communications.

Kindergarten Partnerships

In 2021 we will be focusing on building stronger partnerships with local kindergartens: Bubup Nairm, South St Kilda (Guardian), St Kilda and Balaclava (Nelson St) and North St Kilda Children’s Centre.

As part of our Buddy Program, Year 3 students will be creating strong connections with children and their families by writing to, visiting and playing with, kindergarten children. These bonding sessions will take place both at the pre-school setting and on our school grounds.

This will be the beginning of a long friendship. The children will keep their buddies for the first three years of their schooling at primary school.

SKPS encourages kinder groups to come and play on our school grounds, to explore our Productive Garden and to help us look after our chickens.
