We really value all the wonderful ways volunteers assist in all sorts of ways at SLPS. Volunteers help in the canteen, as sports coaches and managers, assist in classrooms, on camps and excursions, as Class Representatives and help out in so many other ways too.

Step 1: Application Form

Step 4: WWCC

The volunteer starts the WWCC clearance process (if the volunteer has no current DCSI clearance) This step can often take 3 to 5 weeks; the volunteer can continue with the steps below while waiting for the WWCC process to be completed.
