Can you help us?

If you would like to assist children learning in the classroom then we would love to hear from you. You might be involved in spelling activities, maths groups, sports or listening to children read under the trees.

Please leave your name and contact details at the front office or send a note to your child's teacher if you are interested in helping in the classroom.

All children from Kindergarten to Year Two participate in the Home Reading scheme. The scheme encourages children to read aloud to someone every night. Books are returned twice a week and we are always looking for volunteers to help collect and distribute books each week. Changing home readers takes about one hour on the days they are returned to school.

If you are interested in volunteering to change home reader books please leave your name and contact details at the front office.
