How to become involved
The Committee are parents just like you, we volunteer some of our spare time with the aim of helping make a positive difference to our children’s experience at school.
We rely on many hands.
All offers of help make a difference, and we welcome new faces.
Regardless of how much time you have to give there are always plenty of ways you can help either on a regular basis or just as a one off. We encourage and welcome any and all involvement from our families.
Don’t forget all community members are all welcome to volunteer their time too. This includes parents, carers, grandparents, aunts and uncles, neighbours, family friends or grown up siblings.
What skills do I need?
You don’t need any skills or experience! Many of our past members have used the experience and skills they have learnt or developed as an opportunity to bolster their resumes. We work as a team so there is always plenty of support available.
All regular volunteers require a Working With Vulnerable People (WWVP) registration with the ACT Government. For more information about obtaining a free registration visit Access Canberra.
