Nedlands Primary School (NPS) has a long tradition of welcoming parents, carers and community members who offer to volunteer their time and services in a variety of ways.
The purpose of volunteering at NPS is to support the wonderful team of professional educators by providing valuable additional educational resources through which the NPS children benefit. However, the benefits of these volunteering efforts move beyond the stated aims and are wide ranging.
Below is a summary of some of the benefits of volunteering.

Valuable resources for NPS families (for example the Uniform Shop).
Opportunities for the children to participate in a range of fun and sociable events.

Opportunities for parents & carers to connect with the school community.
Opportunities for parents & carers to make new friends.
A personal sense of wellbeing, purpose and belonging. Volunteering is a well known antidote for stress and depression!
