Volunteering

Margaret Hendry School welcomes participation from parents, carers and the wider community.

Volunteering at school creates authentic opportunities for families to be involved in their student's everyday school life. Parental involvement has been shown to enhance children’s wellbeing and sense of belonging. Your presence links their home and school lives in a holistic approach that increases engagement.

All families are encouraged to give two volunteer hours per term.

Some of the volunteer opportunities at our school include:

  • P&C
  • School board members
  • Grant writing
  • Classroom Assistant
  • Breakfast Club
  • Canteen
  • Gardening
  • Library Book
  • School fete
  • Making resources for the school

Volunteer opportunities will be shared on our Facebook page. If you are keen to get involved or have a skill you would like to share please email mailto:margarethendry@ed.act.edu.au
