Parent Volunteers:

We are grateful for the support of parent volunteers throughout the school year, who make it easier to provide our children with an incredible school experience.  Thank you so much!  A Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Screening must be provided to the office.  Each year, an Offence Declaration must be sign by parents wishing to continue to volunteer from year to year.

School Council would like to acknowledge all the Sunningdale students, teachers, administration, the many volunteers, and Sunningdale families for their continued support in making School Council’s efforts and valuable contributions to Sunningdale possible.  Merci beaucoup!
