Volunteering at Whyalla Town Primary School is designed to promote and maintain a supportive relationship with our students, teachers and school staff.
While the welfare of our students is our highest priority, we want to do everything possible to ensure your involvement is a rewarding experience.

Checks & training
People working or volunteering with children in South Australia must, by law, have a Working with Children Check.
A Working with Children Check is an assessment of whether a person poses an unacceptable risk to children. As part of the process the Screening Unit will look at criminal history, child protection information and other information.
Additionally, if you want to volunteer with children and young people you must complete training to help you understand your child protection role in education.
This training will provide advice about creating positive, caring and respectful relationships with children and young people and safeguard their emotional and physical wellbeing by promoting a better understanding of appropriate professional boundaries.
Every positive adult relationship that a child has helps them shape the way they relate with people around them and their environment and we are very grateful for the level of commitment our volunteers show to our school and its community.
