Volunteering

Coomera Rivers State School highly values the contribution of parents and other members of the school community. The P&C Association is the voice for the diversity within our school community.

We understand that time to everyone is valuable, however we encourage as many of our parents and members of the community to volunteer when convenient for them.

Volunteering results in:
 
  • A greater understanding by the parents and the community of their children’s schooling.
  • A greater understanding by teachers of the students and their needs.
  • A better communication between home and school.
  • Fewer crises and misunderstandings.
  • Higher pupil moral and confidence.
  • More goodwill and higher regard between parents, members of the wider community and school staff.

Queensland law requires that we induct all people who come onto the school site to perform work duties.  This induction covers student protection, emergency management and other significant aspects of our school. This requirement has meant that we have a volunteer coordination system that we need all volunteers to follow.

Before you can volunteer at the school, you will need to sign up to the volunteer webpage.CLICK HERE for Volunteer Webpage​

Once registered, you will be sent an email with instructions on how to complete the induction and short quiz. When submitted, you will have access to sign into shifts that match your availability.

Parents of the school are encouraged to have a Working With Children Check also called a Blue Card but this is not a requirement. However, the law requires grandparents of students at the school to complete a Working With Children Check - Volunteers Blue Card application (no cost) if they are interested in volunteering.

CLICK HERE for Blue Card Application. Once completed please deliver to Corporate Services (with the relevant ID) for processing.

Volunteer Reward Promotion - Term 3 2016

 

We have some VERY exciting news!

If you currently volunteer at our school OR, if you have ever thought about volunteering at our school, this term is the perfect term to join our volunteer ranks.

In addition to our usual volunteer recognition systems, for term 3, we are introducing a Volunteer Reward Promotion where the hours you volunteer will see you earn a reward as a way to say thank you for your contribution!

Please see the flyer below for all the details.

Volunteers are such an important and appreciated part of our school community and we are truly lucky to have such great numbers of volunteers on board BUT, as our school grows, so does the need for volunteer assistance in many areas within our school.

From class support, Cafe, event preparation, resource making, book covering (just to name a few!) we have a volunteer job that is perfect for you! Even if you are not available to help during school hours we have take home jobs such as book covering, cutting and laminating and much, much more! 

If you would like more details or would like to get involved please email​ our Volunteer Co-Ordinator, Amanda.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
