Call for Volunteers
Inaburra encourages all our school families to put aside a couple of hours to help out on one of the stalls on Fete Day. It is a fantastic way to get to know other parents, especially if you volunteer to serve with others from your Year Group. Nominate your preferred time and stall by completing an easy online Volunteer Recruitment Form below. Simply fill out your contact details, select the stall/ time and send. You can volunteer for more than one activity. Remember the more volunteers we have the less work for all. No experience necessary.
