Volunteering

One of the things that makes Flagstaff Hill R-7 School such a great place is our active, friendly school community. We want to make sure every family (especially new ones) has the opportunity to get involved. Volunteering at school is a great way to meet new people, make friends, learn about your school and your kids love seeing Mum/Dad/Grandparents or any other special person at school.

Volunteers are involved in a variety of activities including: student mentoring, education support, fundraising, school canteen, attending excursions/camps and coaching sports teams.

If you would like to volunteer at Flagstaff Hill R-7 School, please fill in a Volunteer Application Form (or available from the front office) and bring it, together with a proof of identity document (eg. Driver’s licence), to the front office. We will provide you with a Volunteer Role Description and arrange for you to participate in a school orientation, including a work health and safety induction. You will also be asked to sign a Volunteer agreement.

When you volunteer at the school, you need to sign in through the front office, get a visitor sticker and then sign in on the Volunteer Register in the location where you are spending time.

  • If you are volunteering in your own child’s class, you do not need a DCSI child-related employment screening
  • If you are volunteering in a class other than your own child’s you need to have a DCSI child-related employment screening
  • All volunteers who go on school excursions and/or camps need to have a DCSI child-related employment screening

This screening is instigated by Cecelia in the front office and an email is sent to you to input your information. The DCSI child-related screening is valid for three years from date of issue. Volunteers are requested to contribute $15 towards the cost of this screening and the process is completed online. 

All volunteers must complete the Responding to Abuse and Neglect Education and Care (RAN-EC) and the Online General Induction session and provide copies of their certificates to the front office.
