We are always looking for volunteers to “help out on the day” at our fundraising events. You can come along to as many or as few events as you would like. Volunteering is a great way for parents to get to know other parents and many strong friendships have been formed as a result of being involved with the School Association. Obviously, the more help we have, the more projects we can take on and the more money we can raise. New ideas and suggestions are always welcome.
If you would like to become part of the School Association whether on the committee or just as a volunteer, please complete the attached form and email back to firstname.lastname@example.org or just hand the form into the school office.
