Child Safe

Benalla Theatre Company has a Child Safe policy, code of conduct and procedures for our company.

Please be supportive and adhere to these so we can keep children who are involved in our company safe. Please find our policy here. If you wish to read all of our documents, please contact the Secretary who will email them out to you.


One of the parts of our policy is that anyone who volunteers to transport children (people under the age of 18) to or from rehearsal, must have a current Working With Children Check. If you already have a current WWCC and are prepared to help get young people to and from rehearsals or other company activities, we will need to sight and keep a record of the number.


The really great thing is that from 5 December 2016, the cost of getting a volunteer WWCC done will be free. The cost was in the taking of the photographs, but now that fee has been waived, which is wonderful news. All of our committee, directors, musical directors, stage managers and some other selected jobs will have to have a current WWCC.
