St Paul's appreciates the efforts of parent and family volunteers. We love valuing our parents and other family members at our annual Mothers' Day stall and Prep Mothers' Morning Tea [pictured], our Fathers' Day stalls and Prep Fathers' Day mornings, and our Grandparents' Day each year.
There are also a variety of ways that volunteers contribute to the school community:
- Listening to class reading and assisting with maths groups.
- Being a parent helper on school excursions and camps.
- Joining the school Parents and Friends Group and tuckshop committee.
- Helping in the uniform shop.
- Being involved in the Spring Fair (fete).
- Assisting at sporting events such as Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country carnivals.
Volunteers who are parents of the school do not require a "blue card" clearance. All regular volunteers are required to abide by the terms of the school's Volunteer Agreement Policy. Parent volunteers who attend camps and excursions must familiarise themselves with this before attending the event.
Volunteers are an important part of the school's community and their contributions are significant and appreciated within the school.
St Paul's also provides space for parents to get active, at 'BootCamp', boxing class, and other fitness training sessions. Mums and Dads of all fitness levels and abilities are welcome to join these sessions, run on the school grounds so that parents can train at school after dropping their children off to class in the morning. Evening training sessions are also available, and a staff training class also occurs every Tuesday afternoon, so that staff can wind down after a busy day and get fit at the same time. Sessions are run by Mrs Belinda Lewis, owner of Fresh Outdoor Training.
