Working with Children Check
Parents and volunteers are encouraged to support St. Joseph’s Primary School and our students by volunteering their time to help in classrooms, school events, excursions, canteen and various other times as invited by the school. In 2008, new State Legislation required volunteers working with children in Victoria to have a current Working with Children Check (WWC Check).
If you would like to volunteer your time at St. Joseph’s Primary School for any purpose/event, you will need a current Working with Children Check (WWCC), this is Victorian Government legislation.
