Working With Children Check

To be able to assist in classrooms and at school excursions & events at Mount Waverley Primary School, you will need a current Working with Children Check. This authorisation is required as a means of keeping all children in the school safe. All people within the school involved in child-related work are subject to this screening process. There are compulsory standards the Department of Education and Training determine to maximise the protection to children attending school.

The process for applying for a Working with Children Check in Victoria has never been easier. The process is mostly completed online. It is free for Volunteers and is valid for 5 years.


The application form is completed online at this website.


The steps are this:

  1. Fill in the application form and verify your identity online.
  2. Check your inbox for an email from the workingwithchildren@smarteform
  3. Take your printed email to the nearest Australia Post Office.
  4. Provide your email, proof of identity and a passport sized photo
  5. There is no cost involved for a Volunteer check.
  6. Australia Post can take your photo at no charge.
  7. Your card will be posted to your mailing address within a few weeks.

Once you have received your card, you present this to the Administration Staff at Mount Waverley Primary School. They will record the relevant details, then you are ready to volunteer at any school event.
