Volunteering in Schools ACT – Survey (16.08.2017)
We were very excited to launch our collaborative project on Volunteering in Schools on Tuesday (15.08.2017). We have enjoyed working on this shared project with P&C Council, Canberra Preschool Society, APFACTS & Volunteering and Contact ACT.
This survey will provide us with a unique picture into Volunteering within the Education sector. This is the first time we have conducted a survey of this kind, that looks at the common issues in all our schools be they independent, public, preschool, high school and Catholic systemic schools. A whole picture view of the status of Volunteering in Education will provide us with substantial information and feedback.
We encourage you to share this survey throughout your school community.
We’d like to hear from you even if you don’t volunteer! We need to get both sides of the story.
We will continue to work collaboratively to create a set of resources and tip sheets designed to help schools attract volunteers and to help schools to build a strong volunteering culture.
School Traffic Safety Forum. (27.07.17)
APFACTS represented members last week as Minister Meegan Fitzharris and Minister Shane Rattenbury held a forum to discuss the implementation of Road Crossing Supervisors in schools.
The chair asked for feedback and discussion on selection criteria (as not all schools can be funded initially) and possible implementation models for the program.
