Volunteering / Skills Register

Volunteering:

Volunteering with the P&C is a great way to make valuable contributions to help foster your child’s learning. You do not have to be a member to volunteer.  Some of the ways to get involved: 
  • Attend P&C meetings – 2nd Tuesday monthly, 6pm in N Block staff room 
  • Join the P&C committee 
  • Be a class or year level representative 
  • Coordinate or help at one of our annual fundraising or community engagement events (Tears & Tissues, Quiz Night, Carer Day Stalls, Colour Fun Run, Movie Night, Morning / afternoon teas, get prizes for raffles, help find sponsorship for events)
  • Come along to the Friday morning craft group, weekly 9am at P&C Office
  • Join our Morning Chit Chats – 1st Wednesday monthly, 9am at Tuckshop
  • Volunteer at the Tuckshop or Swim Club (term 1 & 4 only)

Parent & Carer Volunteer Skills Register:

The Parent & Carer Volunteer Skills Register is a “palette of capability” which could potentially be utilised by the school or the P&C. If you’re happy to lend some of your “real world” colour to the palette, please get in touch. We would simply like to know what skills you have, and/or what products and services you or your business may have access to. You do not have to be a member of the P&C to volunteer, however if you are not a parent or carer at WESS (ie grandparent, community member), you will need to get a blue card and register it with our organisation. Here are some thoughts, please help us expand upon this list with your skills, abilities, and contacts:
