Volunteers

The Catholic Schools Office values the significant contribution volunteers make to all our schools. Volunteers bring a rich and diverse mixture of culture, life experience and expertise from their communities.

They complement and enhance the student-centred care provided by our staff. Our volunteers enrich the quality of life for our students and their families and are, in turn, enriched by their experiences.

At Holy Spirit Infants there are many opportunities to volunteer. Each class has reading groups and volunteers are a wonderful resource to come in and work in a guided way with a small group of early learners from Kindergarten to Year 2.

Another way to volunteer is via the canteen which operates Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and the students really enjoy the opportunity to order lunch and make their own choices as they purchase items from the canteen.

Parents and Carers may also like to volunteer by becoming involved in our Parents and Friends Association. The P&F is for everyone and the more active the group, the more enhanced the relationship between home and school and the greater the opportunities available for our students.

All volunteers must undertake a process of Volunteer Induction which requires each volunteer to:

  1. Have an active Working With Children Check (available from the Office of the Children’s Guardian)
  2. View the Diocesan Volunteers Induction Video (arranged by principal)
  3. Complete the necessary paperwork from the Volunteer Induction Handbook and return it to our school office.

To become a volunteer, please complete the steps in the Volunteer Induction Handbook and related documents contained in the induction handbook.
