Volunteering at Big Rock School
**Under the current restrictions, Big Rock School cannot accommodate volunteers in the school at this time, but we do look forward to when we can.**
Big Rock School extends an invitation to our parents and community members to play a role in helping to create and sustain a learning community. Our learning community includes not only students and staff, but also volunteers drawn from parents, community members and local businesses. One of the main characteristics of effective schools is the significant involvement and active support of parents and the community. Students in schools with high levels of parent support and involvement do better academically, personally and socially. As a volunteer, you can help to make a positive difference. Ensuring a safe and caring environment for students is of primary concern and the Principal is responsible for approving, supervising and communicating with volunteers, as well as, establishing roles and responsibilities of volunteers within the school. Volunteers are required to complete an Application Form, a Criminal Record Check with the Vulnerable Sector Check completed, a Confidentiality Agreement and potentially the Respect in School/Sport program.
