Working With Vulnerable People

All school staff and all people volunteering in our school must register to work with vulnerable people. This applies to anyone working or volunteering with students during school hours and at special school events. This would include, for example, our reading helpers, canteen volunteers, support volunteers at our sports carnivals. Anyone who volunteers, in any way, at the school must register.

 

There is no cost for volunteers and you register. You will find more information on the ACT Justice and Community Safety web site regarding the Working with Vulnerable People (Background Checking) Act 2011.

You may download a WWVP Form directly from our website, or from the ORS link above.

 

You can take your form to any Canberra Connect shopfront. Once you have your card you will need to bring it along to school and we will make a copy and place this in our WWVP file.  You will also need to have your card on you whenever you are volunteering at the school. Please be aware, that it could take 2-3 weeks to process your application.
