Parent volunteers at SBB

Whether their kids are kindergarteners or high school seniors, parents have many good reasons to volunteer at school.

We would love to see more parents volunteering at SBB and we value the benefits volunteering provides to students and parents.

What Are the Benefits of Getting Involved?

Getting involved is a great way to show your kids that you take an interest in their education. It also sends a positive message that you consider school a worthwhile cause.

Parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for the school community. They also show their kids the importance of participating in the larger community.

Working with teachers, administrators, and other parents will help you understand your child's daily activities.

Even if you haven't been involved in the past, it's never too late to start.

How Do I Get Started?

If you have something to offer or just want to help out in whatever way you can, talk about it with teachers. Here are some of the ways a parent volunteer can help:

  • act as a classroom helper

  • mentor or tutor students

  • act as a lunchroom or playground monitor

  • organize or assist with a specific After School Activity (ASA) or interest group (if you have an interest in an activity that isn't currently available to students, offer to help get a group started — for example, a chess club or cycling team)

  • assist sports teachers and with sports and fitness programs

  • work as a library assistant or offer to help with story time or reading assistance in the school library

  • sew costumes or build sets for theatrical and musical productions

  • work with the music teacher and band help out with visual arts, crafts, and design courses and projects

  • hold a workshop for students in trade or technical programs

  • volunteer to speak in the classroom, if you have a field of expertise that you'd like to share

Remember that not everyone is suited for the same type of involvement. You may have to "try on" a few activities before you find something that feels right. If you need ideas, ask your child's teacher, who will likely be glad to help you think of something!

Questions to Ask

When you offer to help out, find out how much of a time commitment is expected and if it will be ongoing.

What Else Should I Know?

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when signing up to volunteer:

  • Be clear about how much time you're willing to volunteer. Don't be afraid to say no if you're asked to do more than you feel comfortable with — but try to say it early enough so that someone else can take your place. Many trips and activities can't happen unless the school has enough chaperones or supervisors..

  • Don't give your child special treatment when you're volunteering at the school. Follow your child's cues to find out how much interaction works for both of you. Most kids enjoy having their parents involved, but if yours seems uncomfortable, consider taking a more behind-the-scenes approach. Make it clear that you aren't there to spy — you're only trying to help out the school.

  • Get feedback from the teachers and students. Find out what's most and least helpful to them, and ask what you can do to make the most of the time you spend on school activities. It's important to communicate openly with teachers, administrators, students, and volunteers. Be flexible and responsive as the needs of the students and the school change.

Orang tua sebagai relawan di SBB


Orang tua dari berbagai jenjang kelas dari TK sampai SMA selalu memandang manfaat dalam berpartisipasi dalam program sekolah.

Kami menyambut baik lebih banyak lagi keterlibatan orang tua agar memberikan manfaat bagi siswa.

Manfaat partisipasi orang tua

Partisipasi orang tua di sekolah merupakan salah satu cara menunjukkan kepedulian pada pentingnya pendidikan anak. Disamping memberikan dampak positif pentingnya peran sekolah.

Dukungan dan partisipasi orang tua memberikan manfaat bagi komunitas sekolah. Mereka juga menunjukkan pentingnya berpartisipasi dalam komunitas yang lebih luas.

Melakukan kegiatan, pimpinan dan dengan sesama orang tua membantu anda memahami kegiatan siswa setiap hari.

Kami menghimbau bagi anda yang belum bergabung secara aktif. Tidak ada kata terlambat untuk memulai.

Bagaimana saya memulai?

Pertama, jika ada hal atau kegiatan yang ingin anda lakukan, silahkan sampaikan kepada guru kelas. Berikut beberapa kegiatan yang orang tua dapat lakukan:

  • Membantu kegiatan kelas

  • Melakukan mentoring/tutor siswa

  • Mengelola Lab Komputer

  • Menjadi pengawas playground dan pada saat makan siang.

  • Membimbing dan membantu kegiatan (ASA) dan pengembangan minat (Jika anda tertarik untuk membimbing sebuah kegiatan yang belum dilakukan, silahkan sampaikan kepada kami, misalkan klub catur, team sepeda)

  • Melatih dan membantu program olahraga, gym dan kebugaran.

  • Sebagai tenaga perpustakaan, membaca dengan siswa di perpustakaan sekolah.

  • Menjahit kostum, dan merancang pengadaan kostum drama pertunjukkan.

  • Membantu kegiatan musik sekolah dan orkestra dan mengajari siswa berlatih musik solo.

  • Memimpin workshop untuk siswa dalam teknis penyelenggaraan sebuah program.

  • Sebagai pembicara di kelas dan pada kegiatan Hari karir, jika anda memiliki keahlian khusus yang ingin diajarkan.

Partisipasi anda tidak selalu sejalan. Silahkan mencoba untuk terlibat dalam beberapa kegiatan sampai menemukan kegiatan yang sesuai. Jika anda membutuhkan ide silahkan menghubungi guru kelas masing-masing.


Jika anda ingin terlibat dalam kegiatan sekolah, silahkan menentukan komitmen dan rentang waktu keterlibatan.

Hal-hal yang harus saya ketahui?

Berikut beberapa tips jika anda hendak mendaftarkan diri menjadi relawan sekolah:

  • Menentukan rentang waktu keterlibatan menjadi relawan. Sesuaikan dengan kenyamanan dan kondisi anda. Mohon agar konsen tersebut disampaikan di awal, agar kami dapat komunikasikan dengan orang tua yang lain. Kegiatan studi wisata tidak akan dilaksanakan tanpa keterlibatan banyak pengawas.

  • Mohon agar memperlakukan semua siswa secara adil, dan tidak memperlakukan putra/putri anda secara khusus saat menjadi relawan di sekolah. Silahkan menyesuaikan dengan situasi putra/putri anda. Kebanyakan siswa senang orang tua mereka terlibat dalam kegiatan kelas, dan jika putra/putri anda tidak nyaman dengan hal tersebut, silahkan menerapkan pengawasan secara tidak langsung, agar tidak terkesan memata-matai. Partisipasi anda hanya membantu kegiatan sekolah.

  • Minta pendapat dari guru dan siswa. Temukan hal-hal yang sangat bermanfaat dan kurang bagi mereka. Tanyakan juga hal yang harus anda tingkatkan. Sangat penting dalam membina keterbukaan dengan guru dan siswa. Bertindak fleksibel dan responsif menyesuaikan kebutuhan belajar siswa dan dinamika sekolah.
