Cavalier Drive School

Volunteers

VOLUNTEERS – Volunteers play an important role in the development of a positive and inclusive school climate. We welcome parent/community volunteers in our school. The Halifax Regional Centre for Education has a Student Protection Policy in place in order to ensure that all schools provide a safe and secure learning environment for all students. Prior to volunteering, all volunteers must complete a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry Search. These documents are valid for a period of three years. Please contact the main office at 902 864-7524 if you have already completed a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry Search and need clarification regarding expiry dates.

For those new to volunteering at our school please complete a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry search.
