TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The school shall not be held responsible for Parent Volunteers (PVs) who are unable to meet the minimum 40 hours of service. PVs who have not completed the minimum of 40 hours by the end May of the year of registration, will automatically be disqualified from the scheme and will not be able to register under Phase 2B during the P1 registration exercise.
