Volunteering & Parent Support Groups

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Scotch community, without whom many of our events, sports and parent support groups would be unable to function.

It goes without question that we highly value your time and appreciate all volunteers do for our community. In sporting parent support groups, a volunteer’s main role is to organise functions and provide assistance with team duties as required.

If you would like to volunteer at Scotch, please email volunteers@scotch.sa.edu.au and we’d be thrilled to discuss the various options available to community members. Currently we have support groups for many of the College’s sports and activities. You may also wish to volunteer in the Scotch Canteen.
