School community and volunteering


You can get involved at your child's school—it will help you keep up-to-date with what is going on at the school, and help build positive relationships between you and the school community.

Volunteering at school

Volunteers are always welcome to help with:

  • tuckshop
  • excursions
  • reading support in the classroom
  • sport—coaching, umpiring or helping out at carnivals
  • parent associations
  • fetes and other school events

Contact the school for further information or to register your interest.

Blue card

The blue card is a system for monitoring a person's suitability for working with children. Volunteers at schools must hold a blue card before starting, unless they are parents of a child at the school.

Parents & Citizens associations

All schools rely on their community to help with decision making in areas like uniforms and behaviour, and to help with funding and supporting school organisations.
Blackbutt State School has an active P & C Association.  Phone the school and become involved.
Keep up to date
Read your school newsletters, and check your school website for local news and events.
