Police Information Checks (PICs)
All volunteers are required to be active during a 12-month period to be considered active volunteers. With this in mind, and, given the length of time volunteers have been out of our facilities, we will require all volunteers to produce an original, clear Police Information Check (PIC) and Vulnerable Sector Check prior to volunteering in a school. Any person providing services to students on a recurring scheduled basis requires an original PIC. Any person supervising students on their own (even just once) also requires an original PIC. This includes individuals involved with extra-curricular activities. PICs must be applied for well in advance of school activities to ensure they are in place when required.
