Benefits and Opportunities for Chisholm Care

May 19, 2022

Apart from the compulsory aspect of Chisholm Care there are so many benefits students are getting from volunteering their time and efforts to help those in need.

Benefits of volunteering:

  • Gain confidence: volunteering can help students gain confidence by the opportunity to try something new and build a real sense of achievement
  • Make a difference
  • Meet people
  • Be part of a community
  • Learn new skills
  • Take on a challenge
  • Have fun!

Our Year 10 students have been extremely busy volunteering their services at a variety of organisations including Craig Care, Wheelchairs For Kids, People Who Care, Environment House and our local second-hand stores in the community. All the feedback I have received has been brilliant and they have really enjoyed their time working in the community.

The due date for the Diaries has been re-scheduled to 21 October due to the interruptions with COVID-19.

The Year 12 students still have a great opportunity to complete their 30 hours by volunteering at Craig Care and People Who Care on the holidays and weekends and a reminder that their Diaries will be due on 17 June.

Year 7 and 8 Diaries will be collected on 23 September. This date has remained the same as they can complete the bulk of their hours at home and helping out relatives.

The Year 9 students have been granted an extension and they will be required to complete and submit their Diaries to their PCAs on 21 October.
