Types of Volunteers

Abbotsford Primary School embraces opportunities to engage parents and the community in volunteering. There are many ways in which parents and community members can volunteer, broadly categorised into:


Language Volunteers

Language volunteers are recruited on a semester-by-semester basis, and are required to commit to a regular schedule on a weekly basis:

  • Mandarin Immersion Volunteers
    in-class support and contributing to our Mandarin immersion enviornment
  • Heritage Speaker Support (Parents only)
    one-on-one support for Mandarin heritage speakers to develop Chinese proficiency beyond the standard curriculum
  • Literacy Intervention Volunteers
    in-class English support for students from Language Backgrounds other than English

Administrative Volunteers

Example of administrative volunteers have included:

  • Receptionist
  • Resource preparation
  • Library support
  • IT support
  • Gardening
  • Graphic design
  • Wellbeing

We are always open to new ideas too! Feel free to reach out if you have volunteering ideas to support the school!
