Volunteering

Volunteers play a vital role ensuring that Magill School can deliver a range of important programmes to our community.

Why volunteer?

Whilst volunteers provide tremendous support to the school community, the very act of volunteering can also greatly benefit individuals who choose to volunteer.

Volunteering is an opportunity to give back to the community, to develop new skills, meet new people and build long lasting relationships.

Volunteering will enable you to:

  • Contribute to a community service
  • Broaden your skills
  • Meet people, make friends and be actively involved in the school community
  • Build personal confidence and self-esteem
  • Gain a sense of satisfaction, knowing that you have made a positive difference to the lives of others
