WORKING WITH CHILDREN

A reminder to all families that when volunteering at Emmaus including offering support as a parent helper, as a canteen volunteer and / or to be able to attend school excursions,  that a current Working with Children’s Check is compulsory.

Our procedure for volunteering at Emmaus is as follows: 

  • Sign the red register folder at the front office when you arrive at school.
  • Register your Working with Children’s card number in the column provided.
  • Receive and wear a Parent Helper/Visitor lanyard clearly around your neck and place your current Working with Children’s card in the plastic slot on the lanyard. This lanyard is to be worn for the duration of your time at Emmaus.
  • Please return lanyard, taking out your card and record your departure time in the red register folder at the front office.

 If you have any question please ask Michelle, Cathy or Doris at the office.
