Book a Tour


The success of our school community depends largely on the co-operation between students, their families and school staff members. The support of volunteers contribute greatly to our school community.

Parent/Community involvement helps the school and the children to prosper. Children enjoy the opportunities when their parents and grandparents are involved in class and school events.

There are a number of opportunities for parents/caregivers and families to be involved in St Pius X school and we warmly invite you to participate by:

  • Listening to reading and assisting in other learning opportunities
  • Attending class excursions and/or camps
  • Assisting in the Canteen
  • Supporting as a volunteer coach or manager for one of school sporting teams.
  • Being a member of the School Board or Parents and Friend’s committee.

How do I become a registered volunteer?

To ensure the safety of everyone in our school community, all regular volunteers are required to undertake a process to become a registered volunteer. The school can support you with this process and once registered, your volunteer registration is valid for 5 years. 

Please complete the steps below:

It is the responsibility of all Catholic organisations, including Catholic schools, to ensure that all volunteers and contractors assisting at their premises have a current clearance. Prospective volunteers need to hold a current Working with Children Check (WWCC) from the Department of Human Services (DHS) as well as a current Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide Police Clearance letter/card.


Visit the Front Office in person and provide 100 points of identification (only original or certified true copies will be accepted) and an email address which will be used to enable the electronic application process to be completed. The form will then be forwarded to the Screening and Verification Authority (SAVA) for processing.

You will receive an activation email from Department of Human Services (DHS), then upon activation, a second email will be sent to you with an ID and password along with the link to enter the DHS system.

The standard processing time is generally approximately 30 days. You will receive the WWCC by email and a Catholic Police Clearance letter and card by post, directly from the Police Check Unit. You must bring the letter and card to your school site induction.

OPTION 2:  (If you hold a current WWCC)

If you already have a current WWCC , you can forward the email to and we will initiate the processing of your Catholic Police Clearance. Your clearance letter and card will be sent to you by the Screening and Verification Authority (SAVA) by post.

This induction booklet addresses Work Health and Safety, Privacy Information, confidentiality and the Protective Practices document. Together, these induction components aim to ensure the physical and emotional wellbeing of children and young people and the safety of our volunteers.
