Here at Tenison Woods Catholic School we have a number of policies, processes and procedures in place to provide your children with a sense of belonging and to ensure their safety and wellbeing is nurtured.

To be able to volunteer at TWCS there are 3 requirements to be completed:

  1. A Catholic Police Clearance (which includes a Department for Human Services - Working with Children Check (DHS-WWCC) screening) .
  2. Responding to Risks of Harm, Abuse and Neglect - Education and Care (RRHAN-EC) induction session which can be completed at this link: (volunteers should always select 'Account User' as 'Volunteer"). Once training is completed a copy of the certificate must be provided to the school.
  3. Covid Vaccination Certificate.
  4. A volunteer induction, once all the documents have been received.

Why is a Police Check required for Volunteers?

It is the policy and practice of the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide that all persons who have a responsibility through their role within the Archdiocese (whether paid or voluntary) and/or who have the potential to have one-on-one contact with children, undergo a DHS - Working With Children Clearance and Catholic Police Check. The check is used as part of the assessment process to determine a person's suitability for volunteering within the Archdiocese of Adelaide and also within associated organisations closely affiliated with the Catholic Archdiocese, therefore Tenison Woods Catholic School.

For more information about the processes please contact our Administration Staff All information obtained is kept in the strictest confidence.
