We’re looking for volunteers to help out at school. There are many ways to get involved, including in the canteen, in the school gardens, reading with primary students, fundraising, sporting events, helping out in the library, working bees, running BBQs, etc. If you can spare a few hours and would like to be part of the team, please reach out. Volunteering is a great way to meet other parents, get to know our staff better and support our school.
No experience required - all training provided.

Quotes from volunteers at Bright P-12 College
“I have volunteered in the school canteen many times. I loved being part of the world of the children at school, seeing the world through their eyes. It was great to feel part of the school community”- Mother of student in Year 9
“I have helped out on a school camp, a couple of day excursions and also at a Bike Education session. It was really interesting to meet all the students in my son’s class. I liked being able to help out in a practical way. It gave me a sense of engagement with the school. It also me an understanding of the quality of teaching – I was really impressed.” - Father of students in Year 6 and Year 9
“I volunteered in the school library, pre-Covid. My own children are growing up fast and I sometimes miss the younger years. It was particularly rewarding to see the Prep children so keen to check out the new picture books in the library. It was nice to feel like a valued part of the broader school community. While I was taking care of some of the more menial tasks, this left the library staff able to focus on their tasks. I found it very rewarding to help out.” - Mother of students in Year 4 and Year 7
