How to Volunteer

P1210939 adjust.jpg

Our school community very strongly values parent participation and involvement! We believe the school is a place for students, staff and parents.

We encourage an environment in which parents feel welcome and which fosters the growth of a mutually beneficial partnership between parents, teachers and students. We believe that this input is incredibly important in order for the children to reach their full potential.

Parents are encouraged to join in school life at a variety of levels depending on the time that you are able to spare and your area of interest. You can get involved in your child's school experience in a number of different ways.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Classroom support - assisting with reading, excursions, teaching a skill, parent talks, cooking, Sports Day practice or craft;
  • Sports coaching;
  • Special education support;
  • Assisting in the canteen;
  • Arranging parent coffee morning  - this might be as simple as setting a date for a quick coffee and chat after drop-offs at a local cafe;
  • Attending working bees;
  • Getting on the Board, joining Parents and Friends or being a class representative.

Keep an eye out in newsletters and school communications for opportunities to get involved or talk to your class teacher to find out more!

Please note: in order to volunteer you are required to fulfill a few requirements. It is a Child Protection regulation that all new volunteers obtain a Working With Children Clearance before commencing their service at the school. Staff in our front office can guide potential volunteers through this process, which is a legal requirement in place to ensure the safety of all students. It is a pretty painless process and doesn't cost a cent!
