Irrespective of whether your community experienced many lockdowns or not, the pandemic has touched us all and impacted families everywhere in some way. As we now adjust and return to normal routines, it is difficult to dispute that our experience of the pandemic has been difficult - for some more than others.
During this period, SchoolTV provided families and schools with much needed guidance and information to help support students. However, the long-term social and psychological impacts still remain uncertain. Youth mental health concerns continue to rise, and it is evident that many primary-aged children may still need some extra support.
To assist your school, we are seeking participation in a short anonymous and aggregated survey. It is intended to act as a barometer on the wellbeing of children within your community. Students faced many adversities during the pandemic and were challenged on many levels. Some parents report that their child’s mental health has changed or worsened as a result. However, ensuring the mental health and wellbeing of our children is important for many reasons, one of which is the direct impact it has on educational outcomes.
We encourage all parents and carers to complete the survey. The information gathered will help your school gauge the state of student wellbeing and enable them to discover where further assistance may be required by focussing on key issues highlighted in the data.
