Child Safety & Food Handling
Jai Shri Mataji!
Dear Australian Family,
Child Safety Training
As we are all aware, Shri Mataji has placed Australia as the Mooladhara of the world. As part of our endeavour to fulfill our role in the Virata and also our legal requirements as a religious and charitable movement, we all need to participate in regular Child Safety Training. Please see the link to the training modules and more about Child Safety below.
Note to NSW yogis: Also refer to “Changes in law for Working With Children Check (WWCC).”
Food Handling Training
Food handling training helps to ensure that meals served to the collective are prepared in safe, hygienic conditions minimising the chances of illness. Should we experience any health incidents, the relevant authorities and our insurers would need to verify our records of food handling, including our training records. Please see the link to the training modules below.
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
To make it easier, we now have the training online to make it is easily accessible for you to complete your training. Training modules have been created for the Child Protection and Food Handling training. Each modules should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Each training module has three sections:
- Section A: The training, including a talk by Shri Mataji.
- Section B: A review of the information with questions (answers are provided for verification).
- Section C: Register that you have participated in the training.
We ask that every new and established Yogi regularly do the following training modules:
More about Child Safety
We would like to remind you that your WWCC/ Police Check/ Green or Blue Card may be about to expire so please check the date on yours and ensure that you apply in plenty of time as some Government Departments may take a while.
As each State has a different process please see the attachment for your State’s process or contact your State Child Safety Coordinator (see list below) if you are unsure of what to do and they will help you with the process.
It is a legal requirement for each yogi over 18 years to have one, and by law, we cannot allow anyone to attend who does not have one. This applies to both Pujas and collective programs.
Please keep your card or number safe and handy as you will need it to enrol on any of the Puja registration websites.
