Hilder Road State School Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) provides a diverse range of activities and services to support our school community on a daily, monthly and/or annual basis.

The success of our Association relies entirely on assistance provided by volunteers from around our school and local community.

We urge all parents and local community members to consider providing assistance to ensure our school community continues to thrive both now and into the future.

How can you get involved?

 

  • In-class volunteerin​g

 

In class help is welcome across ALL year levels!  

What does it involve?

 

  • The tasks you could do to help will vary by year level and need, but a few examples include:
  • Giving reading support one on one or in small groups
  • Lending a hand to students who need it during “rotation” activities
  • An extra supervising adult along on excursions
  • Sharing specialist knowledge. Some examples might include involvement in the local area’s history, or environmental knowledge.

 

How will I benefit?

Spending time in your child’s classroom is an excellent way to understand what they’re learning, the methods and language their teachers are using, and to come to know their fellow students. School is such a big part of your child’s life, and many parents say that in class volunteering gives them a valuable insight into this side of their child’s world.

Who do I speak to?

Please speak to your class teacher for details.



 

  • ​​Uniform Shop

 

We are lucky to have a uniform that is so practical and well-designed for our climate, and our students take pride in being smartly turned out.  The HRSS Uniform Shop aims to provide our families with good quality, value for money uniforms.

What does it involve?

The uniform shop is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am. Volunteers are usually rostered on once or twice per term (or as often as suits them). Shifts run from 8.15 - 10am. 

Uniform shop volunteer duties include over the counter sales; assisting parents (and sometimes students) with item selection and sizing; receiving, sorting and pricing second hand items; helping with ordering and restocking. 

How will I benefit?

Time spent in the uniform shop is an excellent way to get to know other parents, students and staff in the HRSS community. The uniform shop is a bit of a social hub, so it's a good way to stay in touch with what's happening throughout the entire school. All profits go towards P&C fundraising.

Alternately speak to our Uniform shop convenor Liz Stanley on uniforms.hrss@hotmail.com or drop in to the shop for a chat during a quiet moment (after the bell goes is usually good).

  • Tuckshop

 

Well-nourished students make good learners, so work at the tuckshop is very important!  HRSS P&C has worked very hard to keep our tuckshop going, and with your help it can keep feeding our kids great food week after week. 

What does it involve? 

The tuckshop is open Wednesday to Friday from 8.30am, and volunteers can stay until after the lunch break.  If a shorter shift suits you, any help you can give is very welcome. 

A day in the tuckshop involves collating orders, preparing food, and over the counter sales. 

How will I benefit?

The tuckshop is a very sociable activity! It's a great way to get to know other parents and exchange information. If there are friends you're having trouble catching up with, why not get together and volunteer for the same roster? Tuckshop is also a good way to get to know many of the students in the school, and also the teachers and other staff who drop in through the day. All profits go towards P&C fundraising.
