Parent Participation and Volunteering
We encourage parents to be involved in the school and with their children’s education as much as possible. Areas of involvement include:
- Governing Council membership and Sub Committee membership
- Canteen assistance
- Parent fundraising
- Sports teams coaches and team managers
- Classroom assistance – listening to reading, working with small groups of children, helping on excursions / camps, assisting with learning activities
- Library – re-shelving books, book covering, Scholastic Book Club
Volunteers can make a significant contribution to the school community by giving their time and sharing their skills with others. Volunteers possess a wide range of interests and abilities that complement school programs, thus providing rich interactions and experiences for students.
The participation of volunteers at Paringa Park Primary School is highly appreciated and valued. While the welfare of our students is our highest priority, we want to do everything possible to ensure that volunteers are provided with the necessary support to ensure their involvement is rich and rewarding.
All volunteers are required to complete a volunteer application form, undertake Responding to Abuse & Neglect training, and have a current Working with Children Clearance. These are organised through the school at no cost to the volunteer. Further information is available at the front office.
