Non-Parent Volunteers

We have regular ‘non-parents’ who help and are valued as part of our school. These wonderful people are retirees, grandparents, locals, tertiary students who have wonderful things to offer our students. 

The necessary Working with Children's Check is an easy online process. Once you have a Volunteer Working with Children Check, which can also be obtained at the Post Office, you can offer your support in many ways across the school. Contact us on: to express your interest.
