Volunteering

At school a myriad of curriculum activities occur in all classes.  These activities are often enhanced by the assistance of volunteers.  At our school, we value the work of volunteers and are very grateful to them for their contribution.  Some activities in which volunteers participate include:

  • listening to children read
  • art activities
  • craft activities
  • swimming programs
  • physical education activities
  • book covering in the Library
  • support-a-reader tutors
  • canteen
  • Kitchen Garden Programme

Volunteers, who are not the principal caregiver of a child at the school, must hold a positive Blue Card and complete an application for suitability notice.  Part 6 of the Commission for Children and Young People Act 2000 requires a person (over the age of 18 years) seeking to work with children (under the age of 18 years) in a voluntary capacity, to undergo a screening process based on his or her criminal history, to determine the person’s suitability to work in child-related employment.  Forms for completion are available from the BSM in administration.
