Student Council

The Student Council is a democratically elected group of Year 9 – Year 13 students whose voice extends beyond the management of the school through the Kaipātiki Youth Board student panels. The Student Council meets fortnightly and is instrumental in organising charity events in the spirit of the school motto Ut prosim aliis – helping others.

Student Volunteer Army

SVA is the Student Volunteer Army, an education charity run for students, by students, focused on providing meaningful volunteering opportunities for primary, secondary and tertiary aged young people in Aotearoa.

The SVA Service Award was launched to recognise the volunteer efforts of secondary school students. Operating in most major public, private and special schools in New Zealand, the SVA Service Award is a five level badge-based system that records and tracks student volunteering against the Sustainable Development Goals. 

Students download a SVA Summary of Service – a CV of their volunteering – to help with job, scholarship, university or hall applications. 

The SVA website and App makes it really easy for students who do a lot of service (kia manaaki te tangata) to log their hours and keep track of what they do. Students involved in any kind of school leadership positions or who do a lot of volunteering are encouraged to join the SVA and log their volunteering hours. 

Students can download the SVA app and register using their school email address. To create an account, visit: When prompted, select 'I am a student' and then 'No, not yet'.

The e-handbook provides a useful guide and more information about this scheme.
