Throughout the year there are many volunteers assisting with the learning programs in all classes, extra-curricular activities, canteen and sporting teams. We greatly appreciate volunteer support and value the enrichment that is added due to their involvement. To ensure the safety of students The Department for Education requires all volunteers to apply to the school and complete two online courses before commencing volunteer work. Most volunteers will need to have a current Working With Children Check from the Department for Human Services. Generally parents and guardians will not require DHS relevant history screening if they are volunteering in connection with an activity which involves their own child.
