Our commitment to the protection of students is based in our belief that each person is made in the image and likeness of God and our ethos is to provide a safe and supportive environment for all. All students have the right to expect that the school will always act to protect them from any kind of harm.

Each time you visit Mater Dei Catholic Primary School to work as a volunteer, you are required to sign in as a volunteer. The office has a sign-in book, where you record your name, time of arrival and volunteer number. Due to current COVID-19 requirements, you are also asked to sign in using the Mater Dei QLD App located at all entrances to the school.
In responding to Queensland Legislative requirements regarding Student Protection and Volunteer Training, we are mindful that becoming a volunteer in a school is now a complex process. Volunteers are highly valued here at Mater Dei and your role in helping at school is a critical one to our daily life and the provision of high-quality education to our students. Please continue to volunteer within our community. The students benefit enormously, the staff appreciate and value your contributions, and the Leadership Team commend the many skills and incredible energy you give as a volunteer.
Please note, if you are not a parent at Mater Dei and wish to regularly volunteer within our community, you also require a Volunteer Blue Card. Information regarding this can be obtained at the following website: www.bluecard.qld.gov.au
