Our volunteers are vital to the success of our School.

Each year more than 200 volunteers donate countless hours of their time and talent to every part of the School across a diverse range of activities.

Each year, we acknowledge, celebrate and thank our volunteers for their dedication and service. Without our volunteers, many student activities simply would not occur.

Any person over the age of 16 who wishes to volunteer in programs run by The Friends’ School must register their interest and be approved before their start. The only exception to this is for current Friends’ students.

Please complete all sections of this form to register your interest.

Once submitted, the application will be reviewed and once approved, you will be invited to complete an induction. If you have questions about this process, please contact Christine Palmer (cpalmer@friends.tas.edu.au) or phone 6210 2200.

The person volunteering will receive an automated response once their volunteer registration has been approved.
