Kadina Memorial School greatly values the time parents and guardians who volunteer at school supporting their child’s education.
To ensure a child safe environment and to comply with DECD guidelines KMS offers Volunteer Induction sessions throughout the year. The 60 minute session covers DECD requirements in regards to RAN training for volunteers, Protective Behaviours and provides information on child related screening and induction requirements for KMS.
Screening Changes for volunteers:
Changes have been made to the requirements for screening clearance. The Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) has updated its screening policy to make it easier for parents and guardians to volunteer their time.
Screening will still apply to all DECD employees; volunteers working with Families SA or children with disabilities; and people (including parents or guardians) attending overnight camps, school sleepovers and homestays.
As has always been the case, a screening is not needed to attend single events or activities at our school. These include concerts, fundraisers, swimming week or sports day.

If you have any questions about screening or volunteering, please speak with the Business Manager.
