Volunteering at Palermo Public School is a wonderful way to share your time and talent to benefit our students. Whether you can give a little or a lot of time please consider putting your name forward. We want the best school experience for our children and we need your help!

Police Check
All volunteers must have a Halton Regional Police Services (HRPS) Criminal Background Check including Vulnerable Sector Screening. These must be applied for in person at any of the HRPS’ offices.  The cost is $25 and you are required to provide two pieces of government issued identification (1 must be photo I.D.). Processing time is between 2 - 4 weeks. Please bring your original police check to the school office and a copy will be taken and placed on file.

As a Volunteer you are expected to respect confidentiality, health and safety, as well as, liability practices. Duty of care remains with Board Employees. Aims and objectives as well as orientation and training, if required, will be provided.
