Volunteering Opportunities

Hey you, simply awesome individual! Thanks for wanting to contribute back to the community!

Volunteering is on hold until the school opens up again to events and activities that parents can contribute to.


We are currently looking for help with the following events and roles. We promise not to bite*. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator for questions/details: volunteer@vanhornepac.com:


Hot Lunch Signup

Sign up to help with Hot Lunches on Tuesdays and Thursdays.Our healthy, hot lunch program is run entirely by parent volunteers. If parents could sign up for one shift (11:20am – 12:30pm) per school term, we’d be able to easily spread out the workload and provide important support to our kids, teachers and the entire school!

Usborne Book Fair 2020

Sign up to help with the Usborne Book Fair 2020! 09th – 12th March 2020.

Appointed Exec Roles

The follow roles are perfect for those who want to step up their regular contribution, but keep it light on time and responsibilities. Each person who takes on one of the following roles will get partnered with an Executive member for guidance, support and empowerment. More details about PAC roles can be found in the PAC handbook.
