Recognise your volunteers

"Volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."

At WACSSO, we take every opportunity possible to thank and celebrate our priceless P&C volunteers, your contribution to society is invaluable. Year after year we are impressed by your passion and dedication to public education.

P&Cs not only raise much-needed funds for their schools, they selflessly give countless hours of their time and provide a strong voice for the school community.

Do you have some outstanding volunteers on your P&C Association, working to better your school community?

Research shows that volunteers live happier and healthier lives, so we know that volunteering is a reward in itself. However, it's always a good idea to acknowledge and thank your hard working volunteers for their efforts. 

A certificate of recognition for volunteers is available through the link below, it allows you to enter your volunteer’s name, principals details and print off the certificate for signing and presentation.

Arrange to have your Principal sign the certificates and award them at the next school assembly, P&C meeting or big school event.
