Child Protection Responsibilities


LanyardBeaconhills College is committed to providing a child safe and child friendly environment, where children and young people are safe, feel safe, and can actively participate in decisions that affect their lives.

The College’s child protection policies reflect our zero tolerance approach to child abuse and our commitment to acting in children’s best interests to keep them safe. Our policies and procedures ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations, enabling us to maintain a child safe culture.

As part of our Child Protection Program, the College requires registration and Working with Children Check details for all people, including parents, who:

  • Wish to volunteer in College programs
  • Have been booked to provide incursion or excursion services for students
  • Have expressed an interest in becoming a homestay host family

  • *All employees of contracted organisations also need be aware of the College child protection policies. If you are volunteering, participating or providing services to the College , you will need to undertake annual Child Safe awareness and revalidation to continue your participation in College programs every 12 months.
