This week represents National Volunteer Week (NVW) – an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. Volunteering Australia has announced the theme for National Volunteer Week 2019 – ‘Making a world of difference.’

As part of National Volunteer Week, we acknowledge and thank all Woodend parents/carers and friends who ‘make a world of difference’ and help our school in so many ways – eg Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program, listening to reading, sports coaching, fundraising, parent network, canteen, camps / excursions, uniform shop and much more. Our students benefit from the richness in programs offered due to the time, energy and skills from our volunteers. Thank you for your ongoing support.
