Volunteering

We thank our parent and caregivers who volunteer to help with reading and other activities. Please view the IGS Volunteer Policy here.

If you shared your Working With Children Check (WWCC) details with IGS last year, you do not need to do so again until your WWCC expires. New volunteers must email volunteers@igssyd.nsw.edu.au with their name (exactly as it appears on their WWCC), their WWCC number and their date of birth.How to apply for a Volunteers WWCC.

The PTF Committee appreciates that every family juggles diverse commitments and can only “donate” limited amounts of time.

Overview

The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTF) is an engaged, friendly and innovative organisation actively involved in the School community.

IGS and the PTF Committee host quarterly School Community Meetings. All parents and carers are welcome and refreshments are provided. Details about PTF related activities and events can be found in IGS Notices.

The PTF is represented by a Committee of around 15 parents from Early Learning, Primary and High School families. The Committee coordinates activities that support the School community. The PTF Committee meets twice a term. Nominations for the PTF Committee are sort at the beginning of each year prior to the AGM which is held as part of the School Community Meeting in Term 1.  Families make an annual contribution of $20 to the PTF.
