Our Volunteer Spotlight #1 is on Irene:

“I began volunteering when my granddaughter began school 7 years ago at Dorothy Lynas. I’ve had the chance to do lots of things – baking in Mrs. Karmali’s kindergarten class, helping in the library with reading, even selling 50/50 tickets for the Seycove auction. It’s nice being part of things and seeing how the work we do benefits the kids. In the community I also enjoy helping out with the Lions Club and the Salvation Army, and in my spare time I love watching my granddaughter Savanah play baseball!”

Irene thank you for all your time and energy these past 7 years. We are so happy to have you on board as a volunteer and Savanah is so lucky to have you involved in her school events and activities!






Our Volunteer Spotlight #2 is on Alikie Knight:

“I’m Alikie Knight and my daughter Lucy is in grade 2 french at Dorothy Lynas. I began volunteering as a way to give back to the school and participate once my daughter started kindergarten. I work full time in the events industry so I balance my commitments by being organized – calendars, critical paths, production schedules. The past 2 years I have been Chair of the Spring Carnival, which is a match for both my skillset and my time limits of not being available during school hours. It’s a great way for me to meet other parents throughout the school. I don’t make daily drop off and pick up so I felt somewhat disconnected prior to volunteering. Now I know a lot of people at the school and in turn in my community. I love what our school community can accomplish together – our school, volunteers and neighbourhood is an amazing network of talented individuals with creative ideas.
And in free time, I enjoy outings with my daughter! We love skiing on Seymour, spending time at Cates Park, and eating waffles at Café Orso.”

Alikie, the PAC is so grateful for your commitment to the DL Spring Carnival the past 2 years. You have been the driving force behind ensuring our biggest spirit event of the year lives on!

With so many events and activities at DL, please reach out to to find the best volunteer opportunity for you!
