School Involvement - Volunteering
St Joseph's School relies on the generosity and contribution of parents; caregivers and volunteers in a myriad of ways to provide quality education for students attending our school.
As directed by Catholic Education South Australia (CESA), it is policy and practice to ensure that all individuals who have a responsibility through their role as a volunteer within the school environment, undergo a ‘Child Related Employment Screening’. Through the Catholic Education ‘Screening and Verification Authority’ unit and also the Department of Human Services (DHS), an assessment is made as to a person’s suitability for volunteering. Upon completion of processing, individuals will be provided with notification of their application status. There is no cost to individuals who submit their applications through the school.
If you have a current DHS screening - 'Working with Children Check', and you wish to volunteer your services to the school, please advise the Front Office staff.
