Parent Helpers

We value the assistance of parent helpers in our classrooms and with other school activities. It is a requirement of school council, that all volunteers at our school hold a current Working With Children Check (WWC check) and that these details are recorded on our Register of Volunteers. If you would like to assist in the classroom or with other school activities, please provide details of your WWC check to our school office and also ensure you update your details with the Department of Justice and Regulation, to include Mulgrave Primary School as a place you volunteer.

If you would like to apply for a Working With Children Check or need to update your details, please use the link below

Our Parent Helpers Policy is provided for your reference under the “About Us” page.
