Volunteering

Volunteering is great fun and an important way to support the school, make great friends and of course, your kids love family involvement at the school. Volunteers are parents, carers, grandparents, community members.

While we love (and rely on) some fabulous individuals who help with almost every P&C activity year in, year out (thank-you-we-love-you) … the contribution of those who just volunteer once or twice through the year is just as important and valued. If every parent/carer gave just an hour of their time each year we would have well over a thousand hours of support. We would like to request that every parent / carer support P&C activity in the way that suits them best.

If you’re worried that volunteering once means you’re suddenly going to be roped in to everything – don’t … that’s not what we’re about. And we know that some years you might be able to get more involved than others – that’s okay too!

Examples of volunteering opportunities

Volunteer your time – this could mean a regular commitment, or to be part of a long-term project, or just help out once a year!

  • Volunteer to help with a P&C event or fundraiser – this could mean planning and organisation, contribution of goods for sale, or help set up, run and pack down –

Contribute your skill – painting, creating, catering, organising, marketing, grant writing …

Donate directly to the P&C – you can donate any amount at any time. This works for some families who have the means but perhaps not the time.

The P&C has a Building Fund providing an option for tax-deductible donations, and we also have a Hardship Fund which is used to support families within our school who experience hardship in meeting essential school-related expenses. Contributions to our General Fund are allocated to projects, determined by consultation with the School and P&C members.
