Parents are encouraged to visit classrooms, to assist or observe, but are requested to arrange their visits with the class teacher prior to arrival and must sign in and out at the front office.

All Department of Education volunteers are required to be registered under the Registration to Work with Vulnerable People Act 2013 (RWVP).

Initially the application is completed online at http://www.justice.tas.gov.au/working_with_children. However there is a requirement for you to visit Service Tasmania to show proof of identity and to have your photo take (similar to drivers licence process).
