SVA Port Hills Recovery Project Part 1

On Saturday 24 June the Student Volunteer Army (SVA) headed to the Port Hills to help the Summit Road Society with the recovery process from the February scrub fires. With a stellar view and perfect weather the volunteers planted hundreds of native trees.

Don’t worry if you missed out on the fun there’s a second day of planting planned for Saturday 1 July, see Facebook for details.

We need you to volunteer in the following areas:

Information Guru (Campus Ambassadors)
Providing help and support is your gig.

There will be a special station for you on Open Day. You’ll assist visitors with questions like ‘where will I get a good coffee?’ and ‘what time is the next info session?’ You’ll also monitor sessions taking place in your area.

Campus Explorer (Tour Guide)
You know the campus well and can’t wait to show it off.

We need you to lead small groups of visitors on a loop of the campus, pointing out all the key buildings and facilities and answering questions. We’ll make sure you know where activities are taking place during the day so you can point them out and help our visitors feel comfortable on campus.

FREE stuff: For your trouble you get a cool tee shirt to wear (and keep), a drink bottle, your choice of finger-less gloves or a beanie and all the tea, coffee and hot chocolate you can drink from the volunteer’s kitchen.
