Volunteers

Voluntary worker contributions

Philosophy

At Willunga Primary School, we believe that voluntary workers make a significant contribution to their school community by giving their time and sharing their skills and expertise with others.

Volunteers may have a wide range of interests and abilities that complement school programs, thus providing a wider range of interactions and experiences for students.

Process

All parents volunteering on site are required to;

  • Participate in a Responding to Abuse and Neglect Training
  • Undertake a site based induction
  • Sign in and out through the front office
  • Adhere to the Volunteers policy

Opportunities

At Willunga Primary School we support volunteers to connect with our learning community in a range of capacities. This includes listening to reading, working with small groups under the supervision of a teacher, supporting cooking and gardening groups, and specific activities such as art or community programs.

Volunteer support is needed for local walks, excursions, sporting events and camps. Additional volunteer roles are available in Support Services with book covering, laminating and other office skills. Training and support is offered to volunteers looking to gain new skills.

Training

Responding to Abuse and Neglect Training is usually run once per term. Times and dates are available in the newsletter and through the Skoolbag app.

Training specific to your role is also available based on your needs.

Clearances

Criminal History Clearances are not required for parents except those –

  • volunteering in an activity not directly related to their child
  • attending overnight camps
  • nominating for Governing Council as they are the legal operator of the OSHC service and employees.

Willunga Primary is happy to facilitate Criminal History Screening for interested parents to ensure they are able to participate in any role (including overnight excursions etc) as they occur. Please see the Business Manager for further information.
