Upper Hunter Wellbeing Survey - Parents and Carers

Thursday 6 August

Upper Hunter Wellbeing Survey - Parents and Carers Survey

Thank you to all parents who returned the parental consent form for your child participation in the Upper Hunter Wellbeing Survey. Over the coming weeks, I will be completing this survey with the students participating. If you have any questions around this, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

Parents and Carers Survey: 

Your wellbeing is an important part of life and we want to better understand what makes a difference to you. Upper Hunter Where there’s a Will has partnered with The University of Melbourne to measure your wellbeing using a survey. The aim of this community wellbeing project is to measure and understand your well-being, so that the collective perspectives and experiences of the local community can be used to design, develop and/or refine wellbeing initiatives in your local municipality. This survey will take 15 to 20 minutes to complete and there are no right or wrong answers. All information is confidential, and the school does not see or receive any individual responses.
