Volunteer

Parents play a vital role in our school community. Volunteering is one way to enhance your child’s time at Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Your talents, interests and enthusiasm are always welcomed. All volunteers are required to complete a police security clearance every five years; this process may be initiated at any time. Once volunteers have received a police security clearance they will need to sign an Annual Volunteer Registration Form each year they continue to volunteer at the school. Volunteer opportunities include preparing materials for use in the classroom, completing projects at home, supervising groups of students on field trips, and assisting with school wide events.

Volunteer with Us

Please note, due to COVID-19 some of the information on this page may have changed.

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.)
