VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS
校內義工規範

Volunteers wanted!

Any parents planning to volunteer regularly throughout the school year must adhere to school requirements for volunteers. Please read through Procedure 535 if you will be volunteering more than 10 hours per year at school authorized events. 

In order to ensure child safety within the school community, all volunteers must complete the following tasks before they begin service: 

  1. Morrison’s Child Safety Training (on-line video)
  2. Background Check: Apply for a Police Criminal Record Certificate at personal expense or provide one from their own passport country. (The General Manager may assist in the process of applying for a certificate from Taiwan.)

Even if you have completed child safety training in the past, all current volunteers must complete the new training, which involves watching an online video and receiving a completion certificate. The certificate is good for 2 years. 

Code of conduct for child safety
Additional information can be found on Morrison Academy’s child protection webpage

若家長您有計畫固定在校內擔任義工,請務必遵守學校的義工規範。若是您預計在一年內會有超過10個小時參與校內的義工活動,請您務必參閱Procedure 535為了確保校園社區內的兒童安全規範,在開始參與活動前,請所有的義工家長必須完成以下的規範:
1. 馬禮遜兒童安全訓練 (線上影片)
2. 背景檢查:請向地方警察局申請良民證或是從您的護照國申請。(若有需要,學校的總務主任能協助在台灣的申請流程)即使在過去您已經完成了兒童安全規範的訓練,所有現任的義工們都需要再次完成最新的訓練,包括觀看線上影片以及申請良民證。良民證的有效期為兩年。
