Volunteering

We value parents, grandparents and community members who are prepared to volunteer as classroom helpers, on committees or as coaches in the After School Sport Programme.

The DECD volunteering policy has recently changed. Parents or guardians who volunteer in connection with an activity that involves their own child do not require a relevant history screening through the Department of Communities and Social Inclusion [DCSI]. However, East Adelaide School Governing Council has strongly recommended the continuation of DCSI screening continues for all volunteers. Only the DCSI screening is acceptable and application forms may be obtained from the school office. Completed forms must be returned to the school for lodging.

Volunteers are also required to have completed the Responding to Abuse and Neglect - Education and Care (RAN-EC) training prior to undertaking any volunteer work. The training may be completed online. Register at https://www.plink.sa.edu.au/pages/signup.jsf and select the course "Responding to Abuse and Neglect-Education and Care online induction session for volunteers". Once completed, please provide a copy of your certificate of completion to the school. Should you require further information, please contact the school front office.

Refer the below attachment for instructions on how to register online for the RAN-EC training.
