​​​Volunteer with Us

While COVID-19 Measures are in Place

In-person visitors and volunteers will be allowed in CBE schools only if they are scheduled in advance at this time. ​This includes guest speakers, sports-team coaches and artists in residence. Individuals are encouraged to communicate with the school through email or by phone. 

Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.

We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school or at home. Certain activities or field trips would not be possible without the active participation of our volunteers. Contact us about ways you can volunteer with our school.

Visit the CBE website for more information on volunteering, including the required registration and Police Information Check. (Please note, guest speakers or visitors to the school, and parents/guardians assisting their own child only are not considered to be volunteers and do not require a police information check.) 

Volunteering for an Off-Site Activity

If you want to volunteer for an off-site activity, please keep in mind: 

  • Volunteers on an activity are considered representatives of the Calgary Board of Education and are subject to the same expectations as staff
  • Volunteers are subject to the requirements of CBE Administrative Regulation 5003 – Volunteers, which includes an application and a police security screening check
  • Volunteers are covered by the CBE’s liability insurance policy while performing their assigned duties
  • Volunteers are covered by WCB while performing their duties
  • Volunteers receive direction from and are accountable to the teacher-in-charge​​​

Our Volunteer Program

Would you like to volunteer at Colonel Walker School? There are many meaningful and enjoyable ways that you can serve in schools. Here are just a few examples:

  • Help with certain tasks in the classroom, the library, or the office
  • Assist with supervision on field trips
  • Coach a school team
  • Serve fun lunches to students
  • Read with students who require extra support
  • Organize special events for students

Parents/guardians and other interested adults are encouraged to support learning at Colonel Walker School through volunteer opportunities. Speak with your child’s teacher and/or school administration about opportunities to assist.

Please be aware that all volunteers working with children are required to complete a Calgary Police Security Screening, which is valid for a period of 5 years. This process typically takes 4-6 weeks. If you anticipate volunteering in any capacity, please contact the school office to obtain information about the Police Clearance process.

RT @JES_CBE: The Grade 4’s were inspired by graffiti artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat. We noticed he would have a bold central picture that was in black, and then he used a lot of bright colours to add interest to his work. @artistbasquiat #wearecbe #CBEart https://t.co/q4OyyrETcw
