Volunteering

Volunteers are welcome at Beaconhills. Discover the many ways to volunteer your time or talent. Improve the lives of others and help enrich your own.

Volunteers

Volunteers help out with activities such as coaching sporting teams, supporting our equestrian and HPV (Human Powered Vehicle) clubs or working in classrooms. Many of our alumni enjoy sharing their professional experiences with students or volunteering as mentors. Their valuable contributions help enhance our students’ learning.

Child safe

We ask all volunteers who work in direct contact with students to complete a short registration process and obtain a Working With Children Check.

College responsibilities

Beaconhills 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.

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
  • are works contractors carrying out maintenance, services or repairs to College buildings or equipment.*

*All employees of contracted organisations should be aware of the College child protection policies. If you are volunteering, participating or providing services to the College , you must complete child safe awareness and revalidation each year.
