Volunteers Needed

GRAD NIGHT 2019 : JUNE 6, 10pm - 5am

To be able to put on a safe and successful Grad Night party we rely on many parent volunteers. We are still short of volunteers in a variety of roles and need to ask for your help, see below for details of the open positions. You do not need to be a parent of a graduating senior! It is a great chance for any adult to get involved, see what grad night all is about and help our graduating class have a wonderful night of celebrations.

Check in – still need 10-15 people in various roles at the check in at the school gym from 9.15pm-11.30pm

Bus Chaperones – needed for both directions. To the venue 10.00pm-12.00am. From the venue 4.15am-5.45am. You can choose either but if you are willing to do both directions, there are also volunteer positions still available at the venue too that need filling.

Please email to get more information about specific positions and to get the sign-up genius link sent. Thank you.
