In Week 3 of Term 2, our year 4-6 students will be invited to participate in the Queensland Engagement and Wellbeing Survey. The survey is open to all Queensland state schools, however, participating in the survey is voluntary.
The Queensland Engagement and Wellbeing (QEW) Survey is designed to measure how state school students view their wellbeing and engagement. The survey collects data from Queensland schools in a consistent and systematic way. Results from this survey will tell schools and the department about students' levels of wellbeing and engagement. This information will allow us to better support our students and meet their needs.
The survey measures many aspects of students' wellbeing, engagement and experience at school. It includes questions about resilience, school climate, sense of belonging, motivation and perseverance, academic self-concept, personal social capabilities, general life satisfaction, future outlook and aspirations, relationships with peers, teachers and at home and general health.
Participation in the QEW Survey is voluntary. Choosing not to participate will not affect your child's education in any way. Children will also be asked if they would like to participate before starting the survey. They will be free to stop or withdraw at any time.
If you do not wish for your child to participate in the QEW Survey, please contact your child's class teacher directly.
