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
- Working Bee help
- Classroom assistance – hearing 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 rewardings.
Parent / caregiver volunteers who attend overnight camps or sleepovers are required to undertake a personal history clearance, which is organised through the school.
All volunteers are required to undertake a Responding to Abuse and Neglect training (RAN) session, which is offered throughout the school year.
