Hello Storrington Stingers,

Storrington Volunteers

Last week was Volunteer Appreciation Week.  On behalf of all our Stingers, we want to thank our amazing volunteers for everything they do to support Storrington Public School.  We are truly appreciative of our parent community for their commitment to our students.  Whether it’s volunteering on School Council, volunteering in classes or on on a field trip, or volunteering with fundraisers, we are grateful for everything you do.
