The Halifax Regional Centre for Education values the many roles that volunteers play in our schools. Parents, guardians, family members, and community members who give of their time provide students with enriched learning experiences. As a volunteer, you will also discover the many rewards of helping students achieve their personal best.
Volunteers perform many different tasks in our schools. Some of the more common experiences include:
- holiday concert
- breakfast program
- variety show
- field trips
- class aides
- book fair
- field day
- school dances
- School Advisory Council (SAC)
- Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
- spring fling
- bring 'n' buy
- school musical
- library support
- community market / expo
We recognize our responsibility to ensure that all students attending our school are protected by taking reasonable precautions to screen volunteers who may be working with students without direct supervision of staff. In accordance with HRCE's Student Protection Policy, prior to volunteering with the Halifax Regional Centre for Education, all volunteers will provide:
1. A completed Child Abuse Register - Request for Search Form, which can be found here:
2. A certified and true copy of a Criminal Records Check with Vulnerable Sector Check available below, from your local Police or RCMP detachment or through online organizations endorsed by Nova Scotia law enforcement agencies. Please note: the Child Abuse Register Search and Criminal Records Check must be issued in the three months preceeding volunteering and updated every three years.
If you would like to volunteer at Ocean View Elementary, please contact the office at 902-465-8670. Thank you.
