Do you have a skill or hobby that could help Newtown? If you do then contact us!
At Newtown C of E Primary School, parent participation in pupil learning and the school community is greatly valued and the school continues to develop through the generous donation of skills and services from parents.
The Community Resource Database is an initiative the school has adopted and is a formal database of skills and /or services that parents/volunteers/others in the community are willing to provide to the school for events, activities and to help in class. The database will help to support our school to secure resources and services at a nil or reduced cost, allowing the school to deliver additional programs, services, events and activities that will benefit the entire school community.
How you can get involved...
There are many ways that you can support the school by utilising your skills and professional services to support special events, classroom activities, school programs etc. Below is an outline of the ways in which you can provide your skills/services:
Pro-bono services: In the context of the Community Resources Database, 'pro-bono' means the provision of services on a no-cost basis. For example: providing art or carpentry skills at no cost.
Reduced fee for service/goods: The provision of goods or services on a reduced 'fee for service' arrangement, as negotiated and agreed. For example: professional photography/filming for a performance at a reduced rate.
Note: Any offer to provide services or goods at a reduced fee for service will be subject to the same quoting and approval processes as all other service providers. Any decisions on selecting a product or service will be based on value for money, fitness for purpose and must provide a discount or benefit to the school. In line with the purchasing policies of the school, a second quote will be sought for comparison where required.
Goods in Kind: Is a form of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy required goods, the goods themselves are given. Only goods meeting the outlined requirement of the school can be received. For example: Donation of auction items to be used at the fair.
In line with our data protection policy we will keep your information secure and will not pass on to any third parties.
If you would like to be part of our Community Resource Database, please speak to the school office to provide your information and skill/resource.
