There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available at Paris Central.

Healthy Snack Program - We Need Your Help

Our school council members, Jamie Minns and Nicki Gilman will be running a healthy snack program that gives all students access to nutritious snacks a few times a week. This program is able to run thanks to the generous support of Brant Food for Thought and volunteers from the community.

If you are able to help out, please contact Jamie Minns at and Nicki Gilman at

Police Checks

Grand Erie District School Board policy requires a current police check (within the past 6 months) for every volunteer. The police check must be updated every two years. If you do not have a recent police check, please pick up a letter from the school office to hand over to the OPP office. You do not need to pay to have your police check done.

Volunteers who drive students for out of school experiences, in addition to having a current police check on file at the school, must also complete a form at the office to confirm a minimum of $2 million liability insurance coverage.

Signing In

It is important for the safety of our children that we know who is in the building at all times. All visitors must check in at the office each time they arrive and when they leave. Volunteers are visitors in the school. You will be provided with a lanyard identifying you as a volunteer to wear while you are in the building. Before you leave the school, you sign out and hand in your lanyard.

Parents who volunteer to escort a group for out of school experiences are accepting responsibility to model and support postive behaviour so that children can learn. In order to not detract from student learning, we are not able to have volunteers bring siblings along. Staff will select volunteers and match parents to groups.
