Today kicks off the celebrations for National Volunteer Week. This week is a time to recognise the hard work and contribution volunteers make to our communities.
Having just finished 3 years as our school P&C President I am well aware of the many volunteers in our school and others ensuring our kids have the best opportunities, environments and resources possible. Everyone is time poor but the truth is without volunteers there would be a lot of things not operating. Whether you volunteer with the kids sporting clubs, school, scouts, or the many other wonderful organisations in our society then you are making a difference. Covering books, baking for the cake stall, selling raffle tickets, changing readers, volunteering at the school uniform shop, it all matters.
Today and every day we would like to acknowledge and give thanks to everyone who volunteers and makes sure our communities are the best they can be, thank you!
