A chance to say thanks to our volunteers
During National Volunteer Week, our department said thank you to our amazing volunteers by having some activities in the DECD gallery to showcase the role volunteers play in our schools, preschools and children’s centres.
There were a range of activities, including:
- photo exhibition of volunteers ‘on the job’
- volunteer organisation display stands
- sausage sizzle
- meet our Living Book volunteers.
It was a great chance to see how our volunteers do and how they make a difference to children and young people. We’d also got to hear how you make a difference as a volunteer.
Where to find us
The DECD gallery is on the ground floor of the Education building at 31 Flinders Street, Adelaide.
