Getting Involved - Volunteers

We welcome the important role that volunteers play at Sacred Heart and encourage members of the College Community to be involved with College life. Each year there are opportunities to volunteer in primary classrooms or to join in for excursions. Parent support is vital for our sports teams with volunteers often required to help manage or perhaps coach teams. Members of our College Community are also warmly invited to join the Friends of Music, supporting our College Bands & Ensemble Programme, or the SHC Parents & Friends Association.   

Parents & Friends Association: Co-ordinated by the Executive, the SHC Parents & Friends Association (P&F) provides a valuable channel of communication between parents and the College, and a forum for the sharing of thoughts and ideas. The P&F makes a significant contribution to the College Community through the organisation of social and fundraising events such as the College Fair and Quiz Nights. Funds raised by the P&F are returned to the College, used to purchase items or fund activities for the benefit of the students. All parents are welcome to attend the monthly meetings, held in the Secondary Library on the second Monday of each month. 

Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP) Registration: Government legislation requires adherence to formal structures and procedures with regard to anyone volunteering to help students or working on College grounds. All volunteers active within the College must have a current Working with Vulnerable People Registration Card and are required to sign in each time they visit the College. Applications for a Working with Vulnerable People Registration can be accessed below.
