Walkerville Primary School values and celebrates strong, positive connections with parents and families and one way to do this is by being a volunteer. Classroom support, excursions, special events and sport activities are all ways we rely on the goodwill, expertise and care of our volunteers.  Parent and community participation can contribute to the life of our school in a number of ways:

  1. It shows your child how much you value their education. Taking the time to volunteer at the school shows your child how important their school and their education are to you.
  2. It teaches community. Volunteering your time shows the importance of participating in the larger community, it demonstrates the importance and value of working together.
  3. It improves communication with our teachers. When you volunteer in the classroom, you get to know your child’s teacher in a different way and gives you the opportunity to talk about other subjects and build a positive relationship.
  4. It allows you to see your child as a student and how they interact with classmates. As a parent, you seldom get to see how your child interacts outside of your home environment, you will watch them build relationships, problem solve and grow as an individual.
