Volunteer Information

Since our school is a non-profit corporation and registered charity, we count on the volunteer support we receive from our parent, student, faculty and community members to ensure that we can keep our programming fees as low as possible.

Volunteer Commitment Fee Policy

Families are asked to submit one cheque for $100, dated for June 1st, 2019. This fee will be returned to families who contribute a minimum of 6 hours of volunteer time to various positions within the school throughout the year. A volunteer hours log is available for printing where volunteers can keep a record of their hours. The log must be submitted by the family, prior to the deposit date for the fee to be returned. This log helps us track our volunteer achievements and also provides information regarding the areas of our programming in which volunteers are most needed.
The commitment fee is also an important part of our volunteer policy as it gives families who are unable to volunteer an alternative means to support our school programming.
