Vineyard relies upon the help of its volunteers to

·Extend its programs

·Nurture its students in ways which would

otherwise be impractical for staff

·Release teachers from other tasks to focus on the student.


Parents and friends are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the life of the school and its community in this way.


There are many ways in which volunteers may assist the school; in the classroom, the grounds, the office, building maintenance or other special activities such as transport, excursions or Sports Days. Some volunteer activities may require training or guidance, and it will be the responsibility of the school to see that appropriate training and orientation is given. Please contact the Principal or other staff member if you would like to participate in any way.


It is now mandatory for Schools in Australia to do Police checks on volunteers who work within our schools. This is done at no cost to you and with your consent.


An information sheet on the police check application process is attached below
