Parental Involvement

We welcome the participation of all parents and friends in the life of the school.  Following is a list of the many ways parents are involved:

  • hearing reading
  • playing Literacy games
  • covering Library books
  • supervision on excursions and visits
  • individual and small group work
  • making teaching aids
  • working in the gardens and grounds
  • helping as a "Friend" of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden (SAKG) Program
  • assisting with the Swimming Program

Any time you can give to the school is greatly appreciated by both the teachers and children. Parents also have the opportunity to participate in the decision making processes at school through School Council and its sub-committees.

School Council or the Sub-Committees and Working Parties may also request your assistance at various times. This may include:

  • working bees
  • gardening
  • lawn mowing
  • fund raising activities, and
  • minor maintenance jobs and in other ways to support and maintain the school

If you wish to volunteer at Dunkeld Consolidated School we will require you to read and familiarise yourself with our Child Safety Volunteers Induction Pack. This induction pack contains the following documents that all volunteers must read and familiarise themselves with. Please click on the hyperlinks to access each document. If you would prefer a hard copy of this pack, please contact the school Administration office who will happily provide you with one.
