Volunteering at school

Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child’s education as well as get to know the staff and other parents and carers.

The staff at Boronia Park Public School enjoy a strong partnership with our parents. We understand the importance of the whole school community working together to benefit the students.

Research shows that children benefit when their parents are actively involved in their education and school life.

Keep an eye on the school newsletter for opportunities to help out at school and ask your child's teacher if you are interested in helping in the classroom. You will be required to complete a Department of Education working with children check and sign a Working in the Classroom contract beforehand.

Parents are involved in a myriad of ways. These include

  • being actively involved in the Parents & Citizens’ Association (P&C) and their committees
  • being a member of the School Council
  • facilitating the role of class parent
  • enjoying social and fundraising events
  • helping teachers in the classrooms with numeracy and literacy groups
  • assisting at sporting events
  • supporting the librarian in the library
  • volunteering in the canteen
  • completing and returning school surveys
  • supporting school events
  • attending parent teacher interviews and information nights
  • reading the weekly newsletter
  • attending working bees
  • welcoming new parents to the community
