Volunteers are people from all walks of life, whose talents and experience add an extra dimension to schools. By supporting the work of staff at schools across the Division, parents and community members engage in the school community and gain new skills.


Volunteers don’t replace staff, but they are an important part of the school community and can provide support in a variety of ways. As a volunteer, you may assist staff:

  • in the classroom
  • with clerical responsibilities such as preparing lesson materials, assembling displays, laminating, photocopying, and collating
  • in the library with shelving, inventory, filing, and book fairs
  • with student activities such as field trips and extracurricular events

Some parents also choose to get involved by joining a school council.


Each school has different needs and opportunities for volunteers. Contact a school to learn more about ways you can help.
