St Peter's Kindergarten Volunteer Committee
The Kindergarten is a place where families are valued and parental involvement is encouraged. The Kindergarten is run by a volunteer committee, which consists of parents and Church representatives. There are many varied roles on the committee, with parents and staff working together to ensure the smooth running of the Kindergarten for the children and families who attend.
Committee Positions include:
- Enrolment Officer
- Fees Officer
- Newsletter Editor
- Maintenance Officer
- A church representative
- Social Secretary
- IT / Webpage Coordinator
- Class Representatives (1-2 each group)
By taking on a committee role during your time at St Peter’s Kindergarten, you can become part of the decision-making process that determines how the Kindergarten operates. The Committee is also a very rewarding way of sharing the Kindergarten experience with your child during their time with us.
If you are unable to commit to being on the committee for any length of time, you are still welcome to come along to monthly meetings and be involved in discussions on various topics that arise.
Meetings are generally held at 7:30pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Kindergarten.
Usually twice a year, in conjunction with our maintenance officer and permission of the Church, we have working bees.
We invite parents to volunteer their time, which is usually for 1-2 hours on a Saturday morning to complete tasks such as refilling sand and tanbark, staining woodwork and cleaning outdoor equipment are undertaken.
We are very proud of the parent help we have had in all of our groups each year. Due to Covid-19 concerns we have had to limit that assistance in recent years. When the Committee of Management decide it is safe to do so, we look forward to inviting our parents back into sessions.
All parents and/or carers need to provide a copy of a current Working With Children's card and their Covid-19 vaccination certificate before you volunteer at kinder.
