St Columba College values the support given by its volunteers. There are many areas of College life supported by our volunteer group including Library, Excursion Support, Canteen and assisting our Parents and Friends community events.
While seeking to encourage people to volunteer their services, the College Leadership, as representatives of the College Council, also recognises its responsibilities to ensure that all volunteers are properly trained and made aware of the Work, Health and Safety (WHS) issues relating to the tasks they may perform. In meeting these responsibilities, the College has an obligation to ensure all persons who wish to work with students in a voluntary capacity are deemed as having the appropriate character to do so, as the safety and welfare of students is always paramount.
If you are a current Volunteer, or would like to become a Volunteer, the College requires you to participate in mandatory child protection training. The training entitled ‘Responding to Abuse and Neglect’ is a compulsory induction program for all workers in schools and his held at the College on various occasions throughout the year.
