This term, our school, like many other public schools in the state, will participate in a Department of Education initiative: the Tell Them From Me student feedback survey. A sample group of students will be included in the survey that measures factors that are known to affect academic achievement and other student outcomes. The focus of the NSW-wide survey is on student wellbeing, engagement and effective teaching practices.
The survey is a great opportunity for the sample group of students to provide us with valuable and quick feedback on what they think about school life, how engaged they are with school and the different ways that teachers interact with them. More than 6,300 schools in Australia and around the world have used Tell Them From Me to survey 5.4 million students. Capturing the voices of our students will help improve how we do things at our school.
A sample group of students from our school will be included in the study. The survey is confidential, conducted online and will typically take less than 30 minutes to complete. It will be administered during school hours between 8 April and 12 April. Participating in the survey is entirely voluntary.
