Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Hastings.
Volunteers may be classroom and library helpers, coaches, drivers and chaperones on field trips, etc. Many of the special programs and activities offered by our schools could not continue without the support and involvement of volunteers. A large number of volunteers are parents of children in the schools or members of the community and local business people.
Volunteers (whether parents, university students or individuals from the community) provide invaluable service to students, school staff members and school programs.
If you would like to volunteer at Hastings, please contact your child's teacher or the principal.
All volunteers in VSB schools are asked to read the VBE Guidelines for Adults Interacting with Students. The purpose of these guidelines is to clarify and affirm the Vancouver Board of Education's expectations of all adults in interactions with students of the Vancouver school district.
All volunteers are also asked to sign a VBE Volunteer Conduct Agreement.
Volunteers who may be supervising students alone without a VSB employee present are asked to undergo a Police Records Check. Instructions on how to request an online criminal record check via the British Columbia Criminal Records Review Program will be made available to volunteers by their sponsor (the VSB employee with whom they are working directly), or the principal.
Volunteer drivers must complete a Volunteer Driver Registration and Approval Form and a Volunteer Conduct Agreement. Volunteer drivers do not need a criminal record check.
