Volunteering at Dundana
Changes to the Volunteer Process
We are very fortunate to have a large group of volunteers supporting students and their activities at Dundana. The HWDSB has put a new policy in place that requires volunteers to update their information each year they wish to volunteer before they begin volunteering. Volunteering includes regular support in classrooms, special event support and all school trips and functions.
All volunteers will need to provide the school with a current (within 6 months of issue) Vulnerable Sectors Police check every three years.
All new volunteers will need to submit a completed Volunteer Information Sheet and participate a brief interview to learn about school procedures.
All volunteers will have to sign an Offense Declaration in years that a new Vulnerable Sector screen is not required.
All volunteers will have to sign a Volunteer Agreement every year.
All volunteer drivers will have to complete a Volunteer Driver Agreement every year.
While this new policy requires the school and the volunteers to do a little more work at the beginning, it is intended to ensure that our students are provided with a safe learning environment. We value our students’ safety too much to take short cuts!
If you have any questions, or if would like to renew your volunteer status for this year, please contact Kristi Keery Bishop at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (905) 628-2622 or feel free to drop by the main office to pick up a volunteer package.
