Centacare Volunteer Service will be partnering with Nagle Catholic College once again to assist them with their Year 9 DARE TO CARE Service days. This years’ service days will be from Monday 25th June – Thursday 28th June 2018.
Volunteering provides a unique opportunity for students during their time at school to make a difference to their local community, as well as developing new found skills.
We believe that we must actively promote, encourage and facilitate young people into positive volunteering experiences that will embed the value of service into their lives. Research tells us that if young people have a community of volunteering around them – parents, school teams, community organisations – they are more likely to volunteer now and into the future.
We are currently seeking suitable projects/tasks that your community group/organisation would consider suitable for a group of Year 9 students to complete. As in past years, all groups of students are supervised by either a teacher or staff member. This year, Nagle are especially interested in activities that are environmentally focused, but are not limited to that area.
They are hoping to engage in activities that can be done over a day (9.30am – 2.30pm). Activities over more than 1 day are very welcome also. Each group of 12 students will be allocated to a community project each day.
For those of you who have been included in this exciting week for the students in the past, you will know that the students are willing and able to perform most roles and do so with a smile.
They can paint, garden, clear yards, clean, assist the elderly, help with meals or any other suitable job that you may require.
We have confirmed that Nagle Catholic College has in place insurance that covers injury to or by students, as well as public liability insurance.
