Wondering how you can lend your expertise to the betterment of Buchanan Park School?
How you can influence student achievement?
What you can do for the community?
Parental involvement is one of the most significant factors contributing to a child’s success in school. When parents are involved in their children’s education, the level of student achievement increases. We are always looking for fresh ideas, new volunteers and creative out of the box thinkers, organization wizards and expert bean counters.
All volunteers must have a valid police check.

Tastebuds Nutrition Program –
This year, we are delayed getting under way with our Nutrition Program. We have new requirements to serve only pre-packaged food. We will be starting up as soon as possible. Every day snacks will be provided to all students in our school from a variety of food groups. Snacks provided will include yogurt tubes, cheese strings, and some additional items.
Buchanan Park School Council, Staff and Volunteers have generously donated their time and money towards the success of this program.
Blizzard Bazaar –
Our Blizzard Bazaar is currently on hold, but we are not ready to cancel it outright just yet!!
If we go ahead, what does it involve? You will be asked to stand at a table that is selling, gifts for family members, craft table etc. and sell the items on the table to all the students of Buchanan Park. The classes will go through one at a time. That class will walk into the gym and “shop” at the tables that our Blizzard Bazaar Committee have organized. The children love having the opportunity to purchase gifts for their family. We do need to have help from everyone for this day to happen. We have not selected a date at this point. If you are only able to help for an hour that is wonderful, that is an hour of help that we can use. If you can help for 2 hours that’s fantastic! Grandparents can help. Neighbours can help. Aunts and Uncles can help. It is a wonderful day to work alongside other volunteers and see the joy from our students, your child(ren) as they shop. If you have any questions at all about the Blizzard Bazaar or are interested in Volunteering for it please stay tuned!
