Tell Them From Me Survey

Students in Tell Them From Me Survey

Year 4 to Year 12 will participate in a Department of Education initiative: the Tell Them From Me student feedback survey. The survey 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.

More information about the survey is available at: http://surveys.cese.nsw.gov.au

The survey is a great opportunity for our 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.

I want to assure you that the survey is confidential. The survey is conducted online and will typically take less than 30 minutes to complete. It will be administered during school hours between 15th June and 3rd July 2020 (this has been moved as a result of COVID-19). Participating in the survey is entirely voluntary.

A consent form and FAQs for parents/carers about the survey will be sent home with students. If you do not want your child or children to participate, please return the form to school. Copies of the form and FAQs are available from: http://surveys.cese.nsw.gov.au/information-for-parents
