Parent and Community Volunteers
At South Coogee we value the contributions of our many volunteers. Many community members and parents volunteer their time to mentor students, help in classrooms, complete daily reading, and assist with our Multilit program for students requiring additional support in literacy. They also assist with athletics carnivals and excursions, busy bees as well as running the Bookclub and assisting the Chaplain with the Breakfast Club.
If you are interested in becoming more involved with your child/children’s school through helping out in any other way or by being part of any of these groups please contact the school.
