About this opportunity

Volunteers needed to help host a fun filled messy play day in the park. Volunteers will be supporting experienced Playgroup Queensland staff (including pre and post event). Volunteers will assist Playgroup staff set up and pack up activities in the park, provide information to families, help with directions (event ushers), manage pram parking and possibly get messy supervising some fun play activities!

Held every year in May is a celebration of everything “playgroup”. It gives families the chance to get a taste of what to expect when they attend a playgroup. This year’s theme is “Messy Play” and a number of messy play activities will be on offer for families to experience in Rockhampton.

This event is also an opportunity for parents to personally meet Playgroup staff, volunteers, and other playgroup families. New families can join to become an official Playgroup Queensland member while learning more about playgroup through the fun and hands on activities that will be offered on the day.
