School Council Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet new people and feel part of our amazing community.


  • Weekly Item Sorting: 
    • Pop into the boot room once a week to tidy the lost and found area.  Sort, hang and arrange items, dispose of garbage, return labelled items to the front office.
      Commitment: 15-20min, once a week.  (Frequency may be less, as shared among volunteers)
  • Monthly Outdoor Display
    • Display lost and found items outside the main school doors during school pick-up.
    • Let the front office know the week before you intend to display the lost and found so that they can let families know when to come and look through it.
      Commitment: 3:15-3:45pm, one week each month  (Frequency may be less, as shared among volunteers)
