At Werribee Primary School all volunteer helpers must have a current Working with Children Check.
This means: you must have a WWC Check to assist in classrooms, canteen and school activities like excursions, camps and special events (ie athletics, swimming carnivals).
Your WWC Check should be displayed at all times when helping at the school. Lanyards are available at the office near the Xuno kiosk.
A volunteer can commence work in a school when they provide a receipt as proof they have applied for a WWC Check with the Department of Justice.
Applying for the WWC Check
The WWC Check is conducted by the Department of Justice. Applications must be lodged at one of the participating Australia Post outlets in Victoria. For a list of Australia Post outlets where a WWC Check application may be made see: www.auspost.com.au.
WWC Check applicants need to complete an online ‘Application for WWC Check’ form at http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au/ before going to a participating Australia Post outlet with proof of identity documents to lodge the application.
