International Volunteer Day (IVD) is celebrated each year on 5 December and was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1985. IVD provides volunteer organisations and individual volunteers with the opportunity to raise the public awareness of their contributions to economic and social development at local, national and international levels.
In Australia, over six million Australians volunteer their time in a range of activities and organisations as diverse as the volunteers themselves.
IWD is the perfect time to say thank you to those that help around the school – whether helping in the classroom, working in the gardens, contributing to the P&C or simply lending a hand to support the many activities in the school program – thank you!
There will be a special morning tea for volunteers at 11:00am on Friday 6 December.
If you’re thinking of getting involved, why not join us at the next P&C meeting early next year and ask how you can help improve our school community?
Secretary, Gold Creek School P&C
