Volunteers

Volunteer Procedures

There are new procedures for parents who wish to volunteer for Drop off & Pick up Zone, Kindy PMP & Reading, Excursions, Uniform shop, Class Parent, and any other child related service. 

When does a Volunteer in a School need a Check?

Persons seeking to volunteer in an SCS school must complete the SCS Online Induction and obtain a Working With Children Check (WWCC) from Roads and Maritime Services. 

It is expected that all volunteers (including parents, family members, carers, clergy and religious) will support this process if they wish to be approved to volunteer in an SCS school. 

Once you have completed the induction and provided your WWCC online,  validation will be sent to the school. 
The WWCC and the induction are valid for 5 years. However parents that already have a WWCC in place, the time will only be concurrent with the remaining WWCC time. Once the WWCC has lapsed, volunteers will need to reapply.

This is subject to NSW government WWC legislation and Sydney Catholic Schools policies. Updates on policies are available on the SCS internet A-Z policies.
