Volunteering

One of the things that makes Flagstaff Hill Primary School such a great place is our active, friendly school community. We want to make sure every family (especially new ones) has the opportunity to get involved. Volunteering at school is a great way to meet new people, make friends, learn about your school and your children love seeing Mum/Dad/Grandparents or any other special person at school.

Volunteers are involved in a variety of activities including: student mentoring, education support, fundraising, school canteen, attending excursion/camps and coaching sports teams.

Volunteers are split into 2 categories dependent on how they wish to volunteer their time:

Category 1

- in your own child/children’s classroom

-on your own child/children’s excursions

-coach an Out of Hours Sports Team your child is in
