We are very fortunate to have a number of people who volunteer to help out in various ways at St. Luke's. Due to a legislative requirement, it is now mandatory that all volunteers (including parents of St Luke's students) undergo student protection training. Brisbane Catholic Education has developed a training package to help facilitate this process. This package includes:
As a volunteer, you are required to read the handbook and sign the appropriate pages, and return the following forms to your child’s class teacher:
Your name will then be added to a central St. Luke's volunteer register. Hence, you only need to participate in this process once regardless of the various volunteer activities you may engage in.
Before continuing in your volunteer capacity, you must comply with the legislative requirement. Please ensure you download the Student Protection Training Package mentioned above or request one to be sent home to you.
Another change of practice resulting from this legislation, is that all volunteers must sign in and out of the front office when working in the school. A sign in/out book is located in the front foyer of the Office, along with volunteer labels. Please remember to sign in via the Office before moving to other areas of the school.
