Parent Help

Parents are welcome and encouraged to help in many ways – Canteen, reading groups, library help, Art support, gardening, office work or anything else you can offer. Our College canteen is only able to continue to function with the generous support of our parent volunteers. They are ably assisted in the canteen by some of our Student Representative Council.

All volunteers at the College must hold a current Norther Territory Working With Children Ochre Card.  The College will hold a photocopy of your card on site. Your children love to know you are involved and interested in their school.
