Volunteering with IGS
We thank our parent and caregivers who volunteer to help with reading and other activities. Please view the IGS Volunteer Policy here. If you shared your Working With Children Check (WWCC) details with IGS last year, you do not need to do so again until your WWCC expires. New volunteers must email volunteers@igssyd.nsw.edu.au with their name (exactly as it appears on their WWCC), their WWCC number and their date of birth. How to apply for a Volunteers WWCC. Please let the PTF know that you would like to volunteer here.

Check the Check!  **new**
Tutors or coaches who work with children must have a Working With Children Check. Parents engaging tutors for their children should be asking the tutor to provide a Working With Children Check application or clearance number – then verifying that number online.
Verifying a clearance online is quick and easy and ensures that a Working With Children Check clearance is current.
