VOLUNTEER WITH US
Did you know that there are many ways you can volunteer in your school? Even half an hour can make a difference!
Make this the year to engage with your school community, to support, to share knowledge, and to connect. If you are interested in helping, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
KITCHEN GARDEN PROGRAM
We need helpers in the kitchen, whether you can help for one session or more or even just to come at 2.30pm to help with washing up. Mondays 9am -3pm anytime, or one of the sessions: 9.20-10.45am, 11.25-12.50pm and 1-1.20pm/1.55-2.50pm. Donations of food items are also welcome.
We could always use a few more people to help out in the café for an hour on Friday mornings (and on some special days). Anytime from 7.45am up till after the bell goes. Even if you can just help with cleaning up after 9am it would be greatly appreciated. It doesn’t need to be every Friday, just whenever it’s possible for you.
There's an opportunity for everyone
Would you like to help teach something meaningful to the kids that can be used throughout life? At FPS we still do not have enough teachers to offer ethics to all years. The training is free and includes lesson plans and all information to be ready to teach. Ethics is for 30 - 45 mins on Thursday mornings.
For more information, please visit the primary ethics website:
Our on-site uniform shop is often looking for extra volunteers to help serve customers, maintain stock, and keep things in order. The shop is open every Friday morning from 8:20am for one hour.
We are planning to make hair accessories out of old school uniforms as well as making some bags which will be for collecting soft plastics in the classrooms. If you would like to help out by sewing from home it would be great.
ONE OFF EVENTS & SPECIALISED SKILLS
Do you have a specialised skill you would like to share with us? Or would like to volunteer on a more casual basis? We have yearly Mother’s Day and Father’s Day stalls and events and would love for mums and dads to get involved, along with the twilight markets, working bees and many other events that we will update you on.
We are looking for volunteers to help cook, photograph, design, and organise our fundraising cookbook. If you would like to be involved please feel welcome to get in touch with us.
...but wait, there's more!
Are you all about raising money for a good cause? Us too! Join the P&C fundraising committee to share your ideas and help us with fundraising events that help support our school and our children's education.
The Twilight Markets are our school's largest fundraising event. There are many different roles available from the planning stage to volunteering on the night. Let's come together and make it a fun and successful night for our school and community!
PUBLICITY & PROMOTIONS
Do you enjoy being creative, or have a background in Marketing? We would love to have you onboard to help us with the P&C website, social media, and marketing design and implementation. We are also looking for someone to help put our FPS cookbook together. This is a digital volunteer role perfect for volunteers who can't get to the school.
ENVIRONMENT & SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE
Are you interested in the environment and helping to make the school more sustainable? Why not join the committee to start working on different projects. We are keen to hear and share ideas to make a difference in our school.
IN THE GARDEN
We need anyone ready to get their hands dirty! You don’t need to have experience, there is a lot of weeding and other garden work to be done. We also welcome any help with planning. Beth Healy (our teacher for the garden program) is in the garden on Mondays but you can come in during the week after discussions with her.
