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
 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
and
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.

The school volunteer coordinator (at Le Phare) will be in touch with you once confirmation is received from ONFE that the screening process is complete and approved.  (Please  mention on your application that the school is expecting you, once the screening process is complete).

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 Obtaining 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 can submit your Police Vulnerable Sector Check to ONFE. 

In order for volunteer applicants to prove that they are volunteering, they will be required to bring their volunteer letter issued by the volunteer organization 
see attached ‘PDF” letter:

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, are handled electronically.

‘New’ OPS online police check website: 
https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/contact-us/Police-Record-Checks.asp


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.
