School volunteer program
Getting involved in your school is a great way to help out, learn new skills and be part of the broader school community. Join more than 80 school volunteers to participate in a wide variety of programs which support student learning, such as:
- Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden (SAKG) cooking and gardening classes
- Helping children read by listening and providing support
- Learning Assistance Program
- MultiLit tutoring for students falling behind in literacy
- Parent Craft Group
- Parents and Friends
- working bees
To raise funds for the SAKG program, our creative parents meet regularly for the Parent Craft Group. They put their artistic skills to use crafting high-quality, inexpensive gifts for students to buy for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christmas.
Requirements to become a school volunteer
To ensure the safety of all students in our care, the Department of Education and Child Development requires all volunteers to:
- Attend a one hour course at the school – Responding to Abuse and Neglect for Volunteers
- Complete a site induction which explains the our safety procedures and your role
Regular volunteers, other than parents working directly with their own child’s class, are also required to undergo a Department of Communities and Social Inclusion Criminal Screening check.
