Volunteering with Gleeson College

Volunteers play an important role in the education of children and young people in partnership with the staff of Gleeson College.  Volunteering helps provide quality care and education to our children and young people, and supports the College to promote values drawn from the Catholic tradition of faith in order to prepare students for more active participation in the world.

To be accepted as a Volunteer with Gleeson College, we ask that you:

  • Read, complete and return the CESA Volunteer Application Package
    Read, complete and return page 16 of the CESA Induction Pack for Volunteers
  • Read, complete and return the CESA Volunteer Declaration Form
  • Provide a copy of your Certificate of Training for Responding to Abuse and Neglect: Education and Care. A link is provided for you to complete this training if you have not previously done so.

Volunteering on the Gleeson College Board

The Gleeson College Board has a strong focus on the capital and human resource management of the College. It ensures the College is a safe and productive environment for all who work and study here, through the provision of College policies and by supporting educational initiatives. Membership of the Board will provide you with an opportunity to become more closely involved in the education of your child and to make a positive and much valued contribution to the life of the College.
