Volunteering at school

Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child’s education as well as get to know the staff and other parents and carers.

Research shows that children benefit when their parents or carers are actively involved in their education and school life.

You can help by:

  • listening to children read in the classroom
  • volunteering on sports days
  • helping supervise excursions
  • getting involved in fundraising activities
  • joining school committees.

Declaration for child related Workers and Volunteers

This declaration is to be completed by current and prospective employees, contractors, volunteers, and other persons seeking to be engaged in child-related work. Child-related work is work that: • involves direct contact (face-to-face, online or physical) with people under the age of 18, where this contact is a usual part of, and more than incidental to, the work OR • has been determined to be child-related by the NSW Department of Education (the department). Individuals who are exempt from the Working with Children Check (WWCC) requirement should complete all relevant sections in this form, including part 1, part 3 and part 4 (section C).

WWCC is a screening mechanism to prevent certain persons from engaging in child-related work.
