Parent Volunteers Needed
Want to get involved in the school but don’t have a lot of time? Get on our list to be informed about quick volunteer opportunities. Email Liesl at email@example.com and we will pop you an email to let you know when parents are needed, and you can decide if you can make it.
We hold a few PAC activities through the year that need parents for no more than an hour, including:
- Pancake breakfast (December)
- Staff Appreciation Lunch (May)
- Carnival (June)
We appreciate all the parents who give their time and energy to the school through supporting PAC and school activities!
