Volunteering at St John’s Grammar School

We encourage and welcome the School Community to be part of our activities. St John’s Grammar Volunteers help in a variety of ways including in classrooms, events, excursions, in the Library, and Parent & Friends events. We value highly, and are grateful for, your participation in these aspects of your children’s education.

If you are visiting our School, we ask that you call into the Front Office/Student Services where you need to sign in and print a visitor’s badge before proceeding on with your business. This procedure enables us to ensure the safety of children at all times by identifying legitimate visitors to our School. Also, your presence here is recorded for your safety should an emergency arise. Please sign out when you leave the school site.
