Parent Volunteers

Yarra Primary School has a strong belief in the partnership between the students, parents and teachers in the success of child’s educational outcomes.

Parents are involved in our school community in many ways, as classroom helpers, on excursions and incursions, as a parent rep and being involved in whole school events such as Athletics Day and the school Production, as a School Councilor and working on various sub committees. 

For parents wishing to be involved in the classroom, we offer a Classroom Helpers course.  This 1 hour course is offered at various times throughout the year. This course shares with parents current understandings and practices in education, and discusses the various roles that a classroom helper may be involved in.

To work as a volunteer at Yarra Primary School, all parents require a Working with Children Card, please see a link to the Working with Children Check Application form here.
