Damascus College is a Child Safe School.

The ongoing safety and well-being of all children and young people is the primary focus of care and decision making at Damascus College. Particular attention is paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds as well as the safety of children with a disability.

In partnership with our families, Damascus College ensures children and young people are engaged and active participants in decision-making processes, particularly those that have an impact on their safety. The Child Safe Officer for the College is Mr Chris Grant, Deputy Principal.

For any enquiries regarding Child Safe issues, please contact Interim Deputy Principal, Mr Ashwin Pillai at a.pillai@damascus.vic.edu.au or 03 5337 2222.
