Doesn't the exception below apply? (ie. if there is going to be more than 10 people present, other adults present, and not occurring more than a couple of times a year.)


From http://www.ccypcg.qld.gov.au/bluecard/volunteers/Educationprogramsconductedoutsideofschools.html

<snip>

Who doesn't need a blue card?

A blue card is not required if the person is a:

  • volunteer guest of a school or recognised body and are:
    • observing or supplying information or entertainment to ten or more people, and
    • the activity is for ten days or less on no more than two occasions per year, and
    • the person is unlikely to be alone with a child without another adult present.

</snip>

If this is definitely going to be an often repeated type exercise then blue cards will be a must, (take 28 days to get, apparently) but shouldn't be a show stopper for this first time if the conditions below are met.


At any rate, give the blue card number a call and check.

[masked] or 3211 6999.

"legal interpretations"
A study in itself ;)

I reduced the problem to a one-liner that works at all times as 'the spirit of the law(s)' is ever present, everywhere, since there are laws:

If you don't know what you're doing, - do what's right!

Anything else is in direct contradiction to good engineering and common sense as it implies making a simple task complicated.

. . . all the best,
Walter

re blue card,
NOT NEEDED AT ALL!

If you are providing private teaching, coaching or tutoring on a
voluntary basis, this is considered to be a private arrangement and
therefore outside of the scope of the blue card system.

http://www.ccypcg.qld.gov.au/bluecard/volunteers/Privateteachingcoachingandtutoring.html
Misreferenced, IMHO. What's being offered is not private tutoring. "Bond University presents...." it's an official activity by an org, not something someone does privately in their home.
Thus it becomes the same as me helping out at a school, and for that the rule applies as I wrote previously. Steve himself will also definitely need a blue card, being the teacher on the day.

Cheers,
Arjen.

first though.
