Volunteering

Do you have a spare hour or two every week, monthly or even yearly? Do you want to make a difference? There’s a P&C role to suit you and your lifestyle, from helping in the tuck shop or uniform shop one day a month, to helping for a single hour at an event of your choice, to helping us from the comfort of your own home, to coordinating the fete. We have something to suit everyone's requirements and your help makes a huge difference to the school community. 

 

In order for the P&C Association to provide the additional resources and facilities that benefit all the students, volunteers assist in numerous ways. We believe “many hands make light work” and are happy to accept any assistance we can get. We believe in every adult doing 'Just ONE Thing' a year. 

 
What do our Volunteers get out of donating their time? 

​​

  • We have a lot of fun coming together for a common cause.  

  • It’s a chance to connect in new ways within the school.  

  • It’s a good example you are setting for your children when they see you donating your time.  

  • You see the benefits and projects you endorsed and wanted within the school fairly quickly. 

  • It’s a great way to learn new skills that look awesome on a resume. Every employer is looking for that something different and volunteering might just be it.  

  • You can be selective about the causes and programs you support. 

  • Gain confidence. 

  • Feel valued and appreciated.  

  • Make a difference.  

  • Be part of a community. Volunteering can help you feel part of something outside your friends and family. 

  • Take on a challenge. Through volunteering, you can challenge yourself to try something different, achieve personal goals, practice using your skills and discover hidden talents. 

  • Have fun! Most volunteers have a great time, regardless of why they do it. 

 

How to get involved?

 

Each year we distribute a letter called 'Just One Thing' that outlines all of the opportunities to join our group and assist. It ranges from being notified about meetings, through to running an event, has a list of jobs that can be done at home and so many other options. If you are nervous bring a friend with you. The more the merrier. We also list all of our current volunteer opportunities on this page. Click on the event you're interested in and it will take you to a sign in page Or send an email to us info@jhss.com.au
