Volunteering at school

Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child’s education as well as get to know the staff and other parents and carers.

Research shows that children benefit when their parents or carers are actively involved in their education and school life.

You can help by:

  • volunteering on sports days
  • helping supervise excursions
  • getting involved in fundraising activities
  • joining school committees.

  • volunteering to help operate the school canteen.

Morisset High School P&C Canteen

“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.” Sherry Anderson (Author).

The MHS P&C operates the School Canteen. We have a paid manager but otherwise rely on volunteers to keep costs down and make a profit for the P&C to donate to school initiatives/equipment.

Advantages of Volunteering in the MHS P&C Canteen:

·         See your student interacting with their peers during the school day

·         Meet some of your student’s friends and teachers

·         Feel that you are a part of the school community

·         Gain familiarity with the school layout

·         Gain skills in food preparation (and customer service if you choose)

Who can volunteer in the Morisset High School Canteen?

Any member of the community can volunteer in the canteen. You don’t have to be the parent of a student - grandparents, carers and other relatives are also welcome.

What sort of time commitment would I have to make?

There is no minimum time commitment. The canteen operates between approx. 8 am and 2.30 pm Monday to Friday. Volunteers are especially welcome in the early part of the day, before recess (about 11am). Any time that you have, whether it is 2 hours fortnightly, or a full day every week, we would welcome you.

What sort of tasks would I be undertaking?

Food preparation (sandwiches, fruit salads, jellies, hot foods), stocking the drinks fridge, stocking the ice-cream freezers, putting away supplies delivered.

Would I have to perform counter service?

No. There is no obligation to serve the students at recess and lunch times. You are welcome to serve at the counter if you wish to, but the Canteen Manager has some trusted senior students who help out at break times.

How do I sign up to volunteer in the canteen?
