Long-time volunteer and P&F Association Sustainability Officer, Kim Lyons, says she feels a strong desire to give back to the School community.
After commencing at CTK in the first year of Covid-19 where opportunities for parent volunteering were severely restricted, she was keen to become involved in the life of the School and experience the CTK community spirit she'd heard so much about.
“By contributing to my community, I am playing a part in something that will continue long after our CTK journey has ended," Mrs Lyons says.
“When people come together to volunteer, great things can happen. It's not about individuals, but about the positive impact that a committed group can have when they lead with their hearts. It also sets a positive example for my children and the children at CTK School when they see their parents and caregivers involved."
Mrs Lyons says she has not only put her existing knowledge and experience to use but has learned many new skills and lessons along the way in her sustainability role.
“I've learnt a lot about recycling, how to incorporate better practices in a school environment and the power of what can be achieved through student-led change," she says.
