Parent Involvement

Parents are the first and most significant influence in the lives of their children. We work in partnership with you to support your child through their early years of development.

We welcome the involvement of our families in the life of our school. It is your connection, support, energy and ideas that assist your school to develop and grow – whether that is through the decision-making and governance of the School Board or sharing in our community-wide events or sport.

In our school community, we truly value and appreciate your contribution of family and significant others, and we know your child appreciates it too.

Working with Children Check

Parents and carers who volunteer at Star of the Sea School will need to be registered as a volunteer and provide a copy/complete a WWCC (Working with Children Check).

Once you have this clearance you are able to accompany children on an excursion, help in the classroom, volunteer in the Canteen, or in any other way that you would have contact with school children.

Volunteer Requirements:

  • Collect a Volunteer Pack from the Front Office
  • Complete and read and sign off on all documents in the pack
  • 100 points of identity must be presented to the Front Office, of which one form must contain a photograph (e.g. Passport of Driver’s Licence)
  • All volunteers at Star of the Sea School must hold a current certificate for Responding to Abuse and Neglect or equivalent. This training is available online https://www.plink.sa.edu.au/pages/signup.jsf
