Educating and equipping discerning disciples of Jesus Christ for restorative work in His kingdom
Volunteering at Cedars
Each family with children attending Cedars is expected to contribute 25 hours of volunteer time with the school each year. We have many opportunities that range from driving on field trips to helping with hot lunch, coaching sports teams to cleaning up around the school on our spring and fall work bee sessions.
Check below for updates on current volunteer opportunities. We also post these in the weekly news email, The Shake.
You can record the hours you spend volunteering right here using this handy form!

What You Need to Volunteer
Criminal Record Check
Cedars Christian School is enrolled with the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP) online application services. All volunteers for our school, including the Preschool, are required to apply for their Criminal Record Check (CRC) online. A CRC is required to be on file with the school before individuals can volunteer in the classroom or on field trips with students.
Below is a link to the online application. The access code is unique to our organization and will be required when you submit the online request. There is no charge for this service. You can now use your BC Services Card as Electronic Identity Verification. If you do not have a BC Services Card, please contact the school office so that we can make other arrangements for you (250-564-0707).
Access Code: 7SBRH2HC8Y

The results of your criminal record check will be sent to the Main Office of the school. You will be contacted by the CRRP if they are unable to process your application. A digital and paper record will be kept by the school. Once completed, the criminal record check is valid for 5 years.
Volunteer Application and Driver Information
Each volunteer must submit an application form (link below). If you wish to help with driving students for field trips or other events, we will need the driver information on page 2 of the application filled in.
These forms are included as part of each year’s re-registration process. If you need an extra form, you can download it from this page.
Please note that you will need to submit a copy of your current vehicle insurance and a Driver’s Abstract if you wish to volunteer as a driver.
You have two options to get your driving record to us: Online at the ICBC Driving Record Website, or call 1-800-663-3051 between 8:00am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday, and ask them to fax it to the school at 250-564-0729.
Child Abuse and Neglect Orientation
To further protect the children and youth in our care from abuse and/or neglect, we now require all staff and volunteers who work with our students to orient themselves in the types and signs of child abuse and neglect, steps to follow in the case of student disclosures, and the duty to report.
The orientation will take approximately ten minutes. Click the button below to be taken to the orientation (opens in new tab).
The PAC needs people to bake for staff meetings, work bees, etc. If you are interested, please contact Kristina Scott at email@example.com
Cedars is thrilled to be able to host an Indigenous Cultural Day on Friday, October 1, 2021. Our outdoor event will have Indigenous guests sharing their knowledge and culture with our K-12 students. The elementary event will take place from 8:45 – 11:50am and the high school event will take place from 12:45 – 3:00pm.
We need volunteers to help out at the stations assisting students and sanitizing between class rotations. If you are able to help in the morning, afternoon, or both, please let Mrs. Andrea Posada or Mrs. Jamie Erbacher know.
The Kindergarten class is seeking volunteers to help with their morning routine 8:25 – 9:00am. Volunteers would support the teacher by helping with handwashing, putting on indoor shoes, and helping students with their name printing pages and letter practice. We are ideally looking for people who can commit to a weekly time slot, i.e. every Monday morning. Interested volunteers can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
