Schools in need of vol­un­teers

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

GREEN thumbs, good cooks or those with a gift for help­ing kids reach their po­ten­tial, are needed for Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Gar­den pro­grams at Bel­mont, Carlisle and Bent­ley pri­mary schools.

School Vol­un­teer Pro­gram (WA) li­ai­son of­fi­cer Julie Mul­lett said the pro­gram ran on Tues­days and Thurs­days at the schools with stu­dents en­thu­si­as­ti­cally get­ting their hands dirty learn­ing to grow, har­vest, pre­pare and share fresh foods.

She said the School Vol­un­teer Pro­gram re­cruited, screened and trained vol­un­teers to work in a va­ri­ety of roles in th­ese and other lo­cal schools and also needed vol­un­teers to help in class­room sit­u­a­tions, with homework and as men­tors to work one-on-one with stu­dents.

“If you have an hour to spare and would be happy to help, please call us,” she said. Visit www.svp.org.au or call Ms Mul­lett 9444 8646.
