Volunteers play an important role in contributing to the success of student learning and wellbeing.

At Paralowie School our volunteers are managed by Community Centre staff.  If you are keen to be involved, please contact our school to make an appointment.

For more information on volunteering, visit what volunteers need to know on the department website.
