Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Beaconhills College. You are making a valuable contribution to the opportunities available to our students.

Parents of Beaconhills students can find out more about volunteer activities that form part of their Parental Assistance contribution by clicking this BeaconNet link and logging in. The forms are under the Parental Assistance heading.

Please email volunteer@beaconhills.vic.edu.au if you have any queries.

Step 1:

Ensure you have a Working with Children (WWC) check card

Volunteers must hold a valid and current WWC check card* and ensure it is linked to Beaconhills College as the place where you are undertaking your work or volunteering.

* If you hold a current VIT (Victorian Institute of Teaching) registration, or are a police force member, your VIT registration or police ID number will suffice for WWC validation. You do not need to provide evidence of further checks.

Yes – my WWC is already linked to Beaconhills College.
– Go to step 2.

Yes – I have a WWC, but I need to link it to Beaconhills College.
