Classroom Helpers

Our school greatly appreciates classroom helpers who assist positively with the implementation of the school’s programs. Classroom helpers must comply with the school’s expectations and practices.

Implementation:

Our school encourages the assistance of classroom helpers in a wide variety of areas.
Invitations for helpers to assist in the school’s programs will be regularly made via the school’s newsletter, or through personal contact.
Classroom helpers will be briefed by the teacher in charge as to their roles and responsibilities prior to commencement. At the same time matters of supervision and safety will also be discussed.
All Classroom helpers will be required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement and wear an identifying name badge, which is collected at the office when you sign in.
For all other purposes, classroom helpers are volunteers and are to be treated in accordance with the school’s Volunteers Policy.
All Classroom helpers assisting in school programs must undergo a Working with Children Check [WWCC] and be registered in accordance with the current legislation. This registration must be current at the time of assisting in classrooms. It is free to apply for registration. A passport-sized photo is required for your application.
