Parent Helpers

Without the help of parents, nipper days and carnivals would not be able to be held.  Accordingly we request that at least one adult per family registered be part of our parent helpers group.  There are a variety of roles you can help with below, and some will even lead you to become a qualified life saver yourself!

Note all helpers need to have a valid Working With Children Check – see below for details.  This is to comply with life saving standards.
