  • Strong creative skills
  • Interest in art and willingness to share your knowledge

COVID-19 UPDATE

After an eleven-month break, our school has finally reopened. We will be welcoming students back on campus in phases over the coming months, as per Government guidelines. Until they go back to school, the children still at home will continue to study via Online Learning with our dedicated teachers. We are very much looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and welcome volunteers again according to strict protocols already in place to ensure everyone's health and safety.


Please read the How To Apply section carefully. We will not accept incomplete applications.
