Volunteering at JFSC

We are proud of our College and our Students and we open our doors to all parents, careers, family and local community members who wish to be involved in the student’s progression through secondary school. When parents and community members are involved within their school community the opportunities grow, not only for their own children, but all students. We encourage you to join in and be an active member of our College community.

Volunteers at John Forrest Secondary College participate in a variety of capacities. They involve themselves in our P&C, canteen, breakfast club and classrooms. They are an integral part of our College community and their contributions are highly appreciated.

PARENTS AND CITIZENS ASSOCIATION (P&C)

The P&C meet once per term and all parents are welcome to attend.

  • Meet parents and College staff.
  • Join a Committee.
  • Find out about what’s happening at the school.
  • Receive updates about new developments at the College, such as the soon to be commenced new build.

Meeting Dates: Tuesday’s - 3 March 2020 (AGM), 26 May 2020, 18 August 2020, 10 November 2020. 7pm Bendigo Room (College Library)

SCHOOL CANTEEN

Parents, Grandparents, Family and Friends welcome.

The John Forrest Secondary College Canteen continues to provide good quality food at a low cost and the only way that they can continue to do this is with the valuable contribution that the canteen volunteers make.

BREAKFAST CLUB

Assist from 8am – 8.45am on Wednesday mornings serving students something to eat. Students are able to eat, relax and mix with their friends; creating a positive atmosphere in the College before school. The Breakfast Club is always busy with many students enjoying the pancakes, fruit, toast, scrambled eggs, yoghurts, cereals, tin fruits, milo and orange juice. More information available from Phil Glossop, Chaplain on 9473 4007.

SCHOOL VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

Some students benefit from some mentoring or need a little extra help to keep up with their class work. The volunteer mentors assist students in school on a one-on-one basis by encouraging and guiding them to achieve their full potential.

  • You will be supported in your mentoring role.
  • Be rewarded by making a difference – our volunteer mentors are dedicated men and women, reaching across generations, helping to meet students’ individual learning needs.
  • Our volunteers usually help with literacy and numeracy tasks.
  • More information available from David Morey on 9473 4034.
