Leigh Home & School Club

The Leigh Home & School Club invites you to join us next year. Most of this year's Board is returning but we would love to make our team bigger. The more people we have, the more fun it is and the easier it is for all as we can share the workload.

Most HSC tasks are done from home and do not require you to be at school. We have tasks that require a lot of effort, and tasks that require some effort. All skills and interests are needed! We have a variety of projects such as ... volunteer coordination, project planning, community building, gardening, writing, website maintenance, Google Drive support etc, If you have a skill you'd like to share or you are someone who just likes to get stuff done, please get in touch! We also need parents for once-off projects such as Back To School Night in August and the Stampede 5K Run/Walk in June.

We would love to chat with you and have you join one of our teams. Please contact our president at president@leighhsc.org for more information.
