Why I volunteer - Jane Koitka

Jane Koitka: Council Executive Member and volunteer at Farrer Primary.

JaneKoitka2015brightenI volunteer with Council because I love kids, and learning has always been one of the highest things in my life. A good education is just so important for kids today, living in a quickly changing world.  So it’s a really good purpose for me. Everyone needs a purpose.

When I signed up, I didn’t know what to expect but I am really really happy that I did! I have worked on some interesting projects – drafting Council’s Reconciliation Action Plan, looking at ways to boost volunteer numbers, and our anti-bullying work. The progress this has made through the Education Directorate has been a great achievement. When changes are being made, you get a great sense of satisfaction and involvement, knowing people will benefit.
