School volunteers provide a valuable contribution to the successful operation of our school. The support volunteers provide to Leigh students has a direct and positive influence on the quality of education for our students.  Volunteer activities include:

路 Volunteering with small groups or individual students

路 Assisting students with special projects

路 Assisting with coaching opportunities

路 Providing transportation and supervision on field trips and extra-curricular events; and

路 Assisting staff with organizational tasks.

While encouraging volunteer involvement in our school, we are also committed to providing a safe, secure and caring environment for all our students. The Board of Education of School District No. 43 (Coquitlam) two years ago updated volunteer procedures, which are now in effect. To support this, we ask that volunteers fill in the 鈥淰olunteer Application Form鈥.

If your volunteer duties are not under the direct supervision of a staff member, you will be asked to provide evidence of a criminal record check. If you have already submitted a criminal record check to us in the past, you do not need to complete one this year (please check with Ms. Sisson at the office if you are unsure if we have one on file).  In addition to having a criminal record check on file, volunteer drivers must provide a driver鈥檚 abstract (each year) 鈥 as well as complete the 鈥淰olunteer Driver Certification鈥 form.

Please note that students who weigh 18 kg (40 lbs.) or more must be restrained in a booster seat until they are at least 9 years old or reach 145 cm (4鈥9鈥). Booster seats are to be provided by the student鈥檚 parent or guardian.

If you have any questions regarding volunteers at Leigh or the process, please do not hesitate to call the school.
