St. Luke welcomes 
parents to volunteer on field trips, to help students with literacy and numeracy, to assist with lunchtime activities etc. The OCSB asks that all volunteers submit a Level 3 - Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) from the Ottawa Police Service (OPS). In our ongoing effort to provide a safe, secure learning and working environment for our staff and students, the Board has an application process for prospective volunteers, which includes an application form and a current Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) from the local police. Once your application form and VSC have been verified, you are invited to contact the principal to explore how your time and skills can be put to valuable use.  If you hold a current VSC (completed within the last 12 months), you are welcome to submit it in order to volunteer at our school.
