This information guides teachers and leaders through the final stages of a student volunteer program in a school.
After the volunteering experience you can bring all the students together for a reflection day (Word 967KB).
The day can feature a series of activities for students to reflect on what they’ve done, while also listening to others’ reflections. It can be a special time when students share their experiences and feelings of accomplishment.
It’s good to take time and celebrate what your students have done. You could:
- share student volunteering stories in school newsletters and on the school Facebook page
- get your student voice to report at school assembly
- recognise students with an award
- share stories with the local newspaper or radio.
Remember to thank your host organisations and to stay in contact. This will keep the door open for future collaboration. You can:
- send a personalised thank you
- encourage students to stay in touch with the host organisation or contact others that sparked their interest.
- think of other ways for your students to continue volunteering, like the Passport for Learning through Children’s University Adelaide.
