The Catholic Schools Office values the significant contribution volunteers make to all our schools. Volunteers bring a rich and diverse mixture of culture, life experience and expertise from their communities. They complement and enhance the student-centred care provided by our staff. Our volunteers enrich the quality of life for our students and their families and are in turn enriched by their experiences.

The staff recognises and endorses the fact that parents/guardians are the prime educators of their children. We view the academic process of education as a co-operative effort between school and home. Some parents/guardians may be able to assist the teachers in the educative process at school.

Whenever possible, parents/guardians will be invited to assist with and participate in school activities such as:

  • School sport
  • Reading groups
  • Enrichment workshops
  • Swimming and athletics carnivals
  • Liturgical activities
  • Library
  • Debating
  • Concerts
  • Sacramental programs
  • Computer education
  • Art and craft activities
  • P&F meetings
  • Writing groups
  • Excursions
  • Celebrations such as Anzac Day
  • Children’s liturgy
  • Canteen
  • In-services
  • Discussion groups
  • Physical education
  • Maintenance / working bees
  • LAP program

Being a volunteer in a school is an important task. St John Vianney School would not be able to function as well as we do without the contribution made by the many volunteers who so generously give their time and expertise.

To become a volunteer please complete the Volunteer Induction Handbook and related documents contained in the induction handbook.
