Volunteering at our school

Happy New Year Everyone!

For those of you who made New Year’s resolutions to become more involved in our school, let’s get that ball rolling!

The Department for Education has rules regarding volunteering in schools and preschools.  All volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application and Agreement Form, and be inducted* (approx 30 min) into the school. Along with these forms, you will need a Department of Human Services (DHS) screening clearance for Working with Children, and a Response and Neglect to Children (RAN) certificate, and to complete an online induction.

*Group on site induction courses will be arranged, with times and dates communicated on the blog.

 You are unable to volunteer unless these steps have been completed.

Ways you can volunteer at Brighton Primary School:

  • Classroom support e.g. morning reading
  • Excursion/camp support
  • Governing Council/Parents and Friends/Sub Committees
  • After school sport Coaching/Manager/Coordinator
  • School Sport SA or Carnival coach/support during school
  • LAP (Learning Assistance Program)
  • Canteen support
  • Library support

You can collect a Volunteer Pack from the Front Office next week, or if you’d like to hit the ground running, all the information and forms are available below

We look forward to hearing from you, and receiving your completed pack.

    If you have completed your paperwork previously, and have a valid in date Working with Children Check, you do not need to reapply.
    The paperwork does not expire (unless the Department changes something). Once you have done this, assume that it lasts unless you hear from us.
    Your working with Children check does expire after 3 years if issued on or before 2019, and lasts for 5 years if issued in 2020.
