PBAW School Volunteers, established in September 2019, includes students from Years 6-8, parents and staff. This program was founded as a way for students to work together to give back to their school and area communities. With its diverse volunteering opportunities, it has become a very popular school organization and averages over 40 volunteers per school year. The staff sponsor is Ms. Katarzyna Lipińska.
Each year the volunteers spend hours doing a variety of projects and activities. These activities are chosen based on needs of the school or those in the community. Some of the past activities have included cleaning a local cemetery, raising funds for disabled children, collecting supplies and food for local animal shelters, organizing fund-raisers for international needs, and collecting clothes and toys for local orphanages or homeless shelters. Volunteer opportunities are also available within our school and include helping with in-school events such as Children’s Day, our annual Christmas Market and homework club. The group works to find opportunities both in our school community and the Warsaw community as well.
Our Motto comes from John Paul II: “Man is great not because of what one has, but because of what one is; not by what one has, but by what one shares with others.”
Our own distinct logo was designed by one of the students.
