To comply with health and safety legislation, we are required to obtain Police and CYF vetting reports for all adults who supervise and/or interact with children under the age of 18 in the course of Orchestras Central activities.

For YOW this means conductors, tutors, helpers at rehearsals and concerts, and any adults who come along to practices to support the activity of the orchestra. We would encourage parents/guardians to start this process when enrolling their child.

Please return forms at rehearsals or email to artistic@orchestras.org.nz
