Please help the PTF help you by labelling your children’s possessions
PTF volunteers spend countless hours sorting lost property each week. Please ensure all your children’s possessions are labelled, including lunch boxes. Everyone who places lost lunch boxes in the lost property is asked to empty out any remaining food scraps first.
PTF Volunteer Sign-up (including Year Group reps and Year 10 Formal and Year 12 Formal organising committees)
All IGS parents and caregivers are invited to get involved with the IGS Community and volunteer with the PTF. In 2020 you can:

The PTF Committee appreciates that each family has their commitments and only a limited amount of time available to “donate”. There are many volunteering opportunities available in 2019 with varying time commitments. Details are set out in the sign-up form.
If you have any questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A reminder that all IGS volunteers are required to have up-to-date Working With Children Check clearance. Please see the notice about this in the “whole school” section, above. The PTF Committee appreciates that every family juggles diverse commitments and can only “donate” limited amounts of time. Please let the PTF know you would like to volunteer here.
