Each year we warmly welcome volunteers into the life of St Thomas’ and acknowledge the significant contributions our volunteers make. Brisbane Catholic Education is committed to the well-being and safety of children attending their schools. It is a requirement of Brisbane Catholic Education that all school volunteers conduct Student Protection Training and Code of Conduct Training before working with students. The training must be completed annually (even if you have completed it in previous years).
The training is provided online through the Brisbane Catholic Education's website and is available via the BCE Policies section of our school website, under " Volunteer Student Protection & Code of Conduct Training"Parent Volunteers are required to download and complete the registration form, and hand it into the School Office once completed for our records. It is estimated to take approximately 35 minutes to complete both training sessions. This training is to be completed annually.
A Blue Card is not required for parents of current students. Volunteers who are not parents of students at the school are required to have a Blue Card. These volunteers will also need to complete the Volunteer Student Protection & Code of Conduct Training and provide the required evidence to the school office.
