Upper Hunter Wellbeing Survey at St James'

Tuesday 18 February

Dear Parent/Carer,

RE: Upper Hunter Wellbeing Survey (Students in Year 3-6)

Where There’s a Will and our school are committed to understanding the needs of your child/ren and we are excited to inform you of a wellbeing initiative that we are planning for this year. We are engaging The University of Melbourne to measure the wellbeing of our students, and we seek your support to allow your child/ren to participate in the Upper Hunter Wellbeing survey that will be completed during school hours. Please note that the survey does not ask students about self-harm, substance/alcohol use or sexual behaviour.

Further information about the survey can be found on the link below (PDF copy attached). Please indicate whether you consent for your child/ren to participate in the survey by responding YES or NO on the digital consent form, accessible at:

Upper Hunter Wellbeing Surveys - Parental Consent Link

Please complete the consent form before 5pm on Friday 21st February.

If you have more than one child at school, this digital consent form allows you to indicate consent for all of your children at once. The digital consent form requires you to draw a digital signature using a computer mouse or touch screen. If you would prefer to fill out a hard copy form, a printable version of the consent form is also attached - or please contact Miss Hand via email eloise.hand@mn.catholic.edu.au 

For your information, we have attached the plain language statement that will be shown to your child/ren before commencing the survey, should you give them consent to participate.




Thank you for your ongoing support,

Aaron Moon             Eloise Hand
