No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.  Aesop

Involvement in schools by parents and carers helps children achieve the best possible learning outcomes. At Rutherglen Primary we have a number of parent and community volunteers involved with our school and always welcome more people to come and be a valued part of our great school.

Some of the ways you can be involved at our school are

  • Assisting in the classroom or with specialist classes, such as Art, PE, French or our Cooking and Gardening Programs
  • Listening to students read
  • Being a ‘Maths Mate’
  • Covering books
  • Breakfast Club
  • Helping at our termly Working Bee
  • Typing younger students work
  • Lunchtime activities and clubs
  • Being a mentor for students

We appreciate that not all parents have the time to commit to helping out in their child’s class, however there are a number of other ways you can be involved, including helping out on an excursion, our school production, at sports events or one of our special days throughout the year.

We encourage families to speak with their child’s teacher to ask about ways that they can assist and community volunteers are welcome to contact our school office to also enquire about ways to be involved with our school.

Never doubt your ability to change someone else’s life.  Jacqui Kennedy

Being involved at any level and in any way is worthwhile, and is so gratefully appreciated by our school and ultimately is so wonderful for our students.

If you are interested in volunteering you will be required to hold a Working with Children Check (WWC) , which aims to keep our children safe by preventing those who pose a risk to the safety of children from working with them in either a paid or volunteer capacity.  Applying for a WWC is very easy and a volunteer WWC is free.

For further information about the WWC check visit www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au
