Thank you for your interest in volunteering at our school. The purpose of this induction pack is to ensure Lorne P-12 College volunteers are familiar with our policies and procedures relating to child safety and understand the important role they play in maintaining and promoting the safety of our students.


Volunteers must read the suite of policies and procedures in the links below and present a current Working with Childrens Check card, before commencing any work where children are likely to be present.
