Parent Helpers

We believe that education involves partnership between staff, parents, the parish and the children. Helping in and around our school sends positive messages to the children and helps keep you informed about happenings at the school.


To assist volunteers St Monica’s has prepared a set of guidelines about working with children in our school. Parental assistance is essential in the following areas to ensure programs are run effectively within the school. 



Duty of Care Guidelines

A duty of care applies while students are under the care of the school. This duty applies equally to school based activities and out of school activities. The same duty of care applies to employees and volunteers who volunteer their services to the school.


When working with children either individually or in small groups the following information may prove helpful.


It is now a legal requirement that all volunteers hold and carry a WWVP card. A copy must be provided to the school office.
