Community Volunteers Committee

The Community Volunteers Committee is a volunteer body of International Hall residents helping with coordinating social events for the Hall community.  These include our major parties (For example,  our legendary Beach,  our spooky Halloween, and classic  Boat Parties) and other exciting events.  Have ideas for great events? Want to get involved? Please contact Ed or Ana from the Warden's Team  or cvc@internationalhall.com or if you live in IH, look out for them in the dining hall or common spaces.

  Dr Sarah Jesus (Balaya) Families Convenor   My favourite thing in International Hall is the diversity of people, allowing us to learn from each other, and the several activities available and planned by the Warden’s Team. In my role, I am interested in creating a safe space for all kinds of families and in assisting and organising events for them, as I find it important that the Family Community has a place in IH because it brings variety to the Hall and also gives families an opportunity to be a cohesive group where support can be found. Thus, I am passionate about making a contribution to cultural, educational and fun activities.
