Working With Children Check
Heathdale Christian College is dedicated to providing a safe environment for our students and the Working with Children Act 2005 requires that all our volunteers supply the WWC Check before commencing as a volunteer. This will enable you to support the College in a variety of ways, such as yard duty, reading programs, excursions, billeting and camps.
The WWC Check for volunteers is free of charge. Please follow the instructions for downloading and completing your form on http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au The administration of WWC Checks can take three (3) to six (6) weeks and will remain valid for five (5) years.
Please have this process organised before the commencement of the school year so that you are able to support the College and your family by assisting as a volunteer at various times that sometimes may be at short notice.
Before you can commence working with us, a Notice of Assessment will be sent to us on the approval of your WWCC. You are not required to give us a copy of your card. We are not able to accept volunteers until the full process has been completed.
If you are approved to be a volunteer for a family as a friend or grandparent for example, please advise the Main Administration Office so that your name can be linked to the family you are supporting.
Should you be a volunteer or employee elsewhere, you will need to visit the website to update your WWCC details so that the College receives a Notice of Assessment before you commence volunteering with us.
Address changes and other personal information must be updated by you as they occur and this can also be done by visiting the website.
