The Chaminade family spirit exists because of the time, effort and service that our volunteers demonstrate every day. There are many volunteer opportunities to fit a wide variety of skills and schedules. Volunteering is not only a meaningful way to support Chaminade and meet new friends, it is a way to show your student that you are committed to his or her education.

  • Paul Barkes

    Paul is a proud senior parent to a wonderful pair of varsity soccer players, Jack and Emily.  Although they will be finishing high school this year, we are so grateful for all the game footage production Paul delivered for the team.  Paul has provided game footage for the past three years.  This school year, Paul stepped up his game by providing a Livestream of the games due to the guidelines that restricted spectators. This enabled families that were unable to attend to be able to view them firsthand.  Paul made a difference during the first girls’ soccer game of the year at Malibu high school as he was the only spectator allowed and the most important too as he provided viewing access to the other families through Livestream. Paul is always positive and not only supports his children but all Chaminade athletes as well. Paul truly leaves his distinguished mark on Chaminade.
