One of the strengths of the College is the generosity of our volunteers’ time, which we value enormously.

Volunteers have the opportunity to help on outings, camps, sports days, and other College activities, and also in specific roles such as Canteen Assistant or as Learning Assistance Program helper.

Both St Francis de Sales College and the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide take seriously the duty of care to those who entrust themselves to the task of volunteering. Great importance is placed on ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all participants in programs and activities.

Parent/carer helpers and other volunteers play a significant role in providing an environment that nurtures the wellbeing of children, young people and their families.
