Volunteering Program

 

On 26th February, 15 Delany Year 10 students attended the launch of the Premier's Volunteer Recognition Program at the Granville Youth and Community Centre.

There were nearly 200 volunteers present for the launch of this program. The Premier, Mike Baird, MP for Granville, Tony Issa and Minister for Citizenship and Communities, Victor Dominello were guest speakers.  Premier Mike Baird spoke about students and the value of their involvement in volunteering and community services.   This program has been implemented in order to recognise people who commence volunteering at schools and to recognise and celebrate those who make ongoing contributions to support communities.

The Program comprises six categories:

  • Students aged up to 14 years, or end of Year 9 (criteria: 3 months regular volunteering and a minimum of 13 hours in one year)
  • Students aged 15 years or end of Year 10 (criteria: 6 months regular volunteering and a minimum of 26 hours in one year)
  • Students aged 16 years or end of Year 11 (criteria: 12 months regular volunteering and a minimum of 52 hours in one year)
  • Volunteering effort by those up to 40 years of age
  • People with more than 25 years of volunteering experience
  • People with more than 40 years of volunteering experience.

This conference helped us to broaden our understanding of the many benefits of volunteering. Thanks to Brother Charles Barry and Mr Thomas for accompanying us to this wonderful program.
