Le Phare Volunteers

kindness matters

Events at Le Phare are often run in partnership between the School and the parent-led School Council.

Some examples include:
Student lunches delivery
Family Picnic
Helping Ms Paula sort books in the library 
 Monster Mash Dance Party
Ms Naomi's 'Build A Garden' Party
Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser

Many easy ways you can help:

As light as:
lending a cooler for an outdoor event
picking up donations and delivering them to the school

Or as active as:
helping to hand out lunches to classrooms on Pizza Day
helping your kids' teachers in the classroom

Application to Volunteer
Police Vulnerable Sector Check

The Ottawa Network for Education (ONFE) is a central referral and screening agency for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB).
Please go to the ONFE Volunteer Website 
for the online application.Your application will be processed when ONFE receives your Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) and when your two references from your application are checked and approved.  

Procedures for a 
Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC):

Volunteers must have a positive Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) on file with ONFE prior to volunteering.

Once complete, you submit your 
Police Vulnerable Sector Check to ONFE and bring a copy to the Le Phare school office. 

ONFE will issue you a volunteer letter during the application process. You use this to get your Police Records Check (for free). 

Records Check Apply Online

Residents over the age of 18 are now be able to apply online for a police record check 24/7 without having to visit an Ottawa Police Service location in person. 

All aspects of the process, including verification of identification and fee payment (if applicable), are handled electronically.

OPS Online Police Record and Background Check website 

Applicants will need bank account information and credit history for the electronic identification verification process.

Once the application is submitted, residents can see the status of their application online.

The average wait time will vary between 24-72 hours.

If a fingerprint follow-up is required, or if the applicant has had negative contact with police, it could take up to six weeks to process the police check (due to the RCMP’s involvement).

Visit the Ottawa Police website for detailed explanations of what each police record check includes or does not include. 

While an online option is now available, in person applications will remain an option at 2670 Queensview Drive.
