Volunteer

Volunteers are an integral part of life at Stanley Jones School and Alice Jamieson Girls’ Academy. Volunteers are needed:

  • to support off campus field trips
  • to give presentations on topics that you are very knowledgeable about (i.e. a geologist - sharing information on rocks for science discovery), 
  • to help at school events (i.e. cooking with students, school dances, etc.), 
  • to assist students with their learning (i.e. reading with students, homework help, etc.)

Anyone who has time to enrich our students’ learning can volunteer. All volunteers must first complete a security check through the Calgary Police Service before they can help out at the school.  To begin the volunteer clearance process, please ask at our main office or check the school webpage for more details. When you do volunteer – please sign in at the main office and wear a visitor tag.

If you are not able to volunteer during the school day, why not volunteer to be part of our school council.

Volunteers Needed for Upcoming Casinos

Thank you to all the parents and other family and friends who have volunteered at the Stanley Jones and Alice Jamieson Girls’ Academy casinos before. Parent Council has just received notification of the next casino dates and is already recruiting volunteers.

Every 18 months, our school is provided the opportunity to hold a charitable gaming event which allows us to raise up to $140,000 for the school. Our next event is scheduled for October 2 & 3 at Cash Casino and November 11 & 12 at Cowboys Casino. To hold such an event, we require approximately 38 volunteers to take on various shifts lasting from 4 to 8 hours throughout the 2-day casino event. Please sign up online at:

We hope that our many of our families will be able to generously donate their time again to help our school.
