Parents' Volunteer Program

Parents' Volunteer Program

Welcome to Al Siraat College to all the new parents who have their children starting in 2019. My name is Sarah Wills and I am the parent representative from PFF (Parents and Friend Forum).

The PFF is here to build community ties, volunteering and fundraising for Al Siraat College.

Volunteering

If you are interested in volunteering your time as a parent of Al Siraat for things like reading in class, helping out in art lessons or even going on excursions, please send through your details to pff@alsiraat.vic.edu.au. All parent volunteers must have a valid Working With Children Check (WWCC). So I encourage all parents to get one as you never know when you want to get involved at school.

If you are interested in volunteering, send through your FULL NAME and WWCC details when you have them. You will be added to a volunteer email group and an email goes out each week with the areas the school needs volunteering in the following week. You do not have to volunteer all the time. Just when you are available and in areas you are interested in. Children love to see their parents around, especially when they are little.

Working with Children Check

Once you have your WWCC card, please take a photo of the card and send it through to me so I can keep track of all the parents who are eligible to work with our children.

The WWCC is free and easy to do apply for online:

Facebook

If you are interested in making connections with other parents at Al Siraat College, I encourage you to join either our Facebook group or WhatsApp group. These groups are there to keep us up to date with what is happening at school. It is NOT managed by Al Siraat College, but rather run by school parents.

If you wish to be added to the FB group, please asked to be added, by clicking on the below link and asking a couple of questions.

We also have a business group, where parents can advertise their businesses. It is a great way to support each other. If you wish to join this group please click on the below link. You do not have to be a business owner to join.

WhatsApp

Alternatively, you can be added to our WhatsApp groups. Some as FB groups. If you are interested in join the WhatsApp group, please email pff@alsiraat.vic.edu.au your FULL NAME and MOBILE NUMBER.

These groups are purely for current parents of Al Siraat College. It is not open to anyone else.

I look forward to meeting you all at some time, inShaAllah.
