Inglis Street Elementary School

Volunteering at Inglis Street

Volunteers make a difference!

The Halifax Regional Centre for Education values the many roles that volunteers play in our schools.

Parents, guardians, family members and community members who give of their time provide students with enriched learning experiences. As a volunteer, you will also discover the many rewards of helping students achieve their personal best.

Volunteers perform many different tasks in our schools. Some of the more common experiences include:

Field trips
Special events
Classroom support
School committees/groups
Drivers for school trips
Reading programs
Assisting teachers with teaching materials
School beautification
Communications (telephone committees/newsletters/flyers)

Student safety is paramount
We recognize our responsibility to ensure that all students attending our schools are protected by taking reasonable precautions to screen volunteers who may be working with students without direct supervision of staff. In accordance with HRCE’s Student Protection Policy, prior to volunteering with the Halifax Regional School Board, all volunteers will provide:

A completed Child Abuse Register - Request for Search Form, which can be found here:

A certified and true copy of a Criminal Records Check with Vulnerable Sector Check available from your local Police or RCMP detachment or through online organizations endorsed by Nova Scotia law enforcement agencies, and may be found by following the links on:

Please note: the Child Abuse Register Search and Criminal Records Check must be issued in the three months preceding volunteering and updated every three years.
