Queensland Engagement and Wellbeing Survey
Why are we doing the survey?
We know that wellbeing and engagement are important parts of your student's life at school. The department and our school are looking at ways to collect information on these topics so we can support our students in the best way possible.
The Queensland Engagement and Wellbeing (QEW) Survey is designed to measure how state school students view their wellbeing and engagement.
Results from this survey will tell us about students' levels of wellbeing and engagement. This information will allow us to better support our students and meet their needs.
When is the survey taking place?
Benowa SHS is holding the QEW Survey before the end of Week 4 Term 2.
What is the survey about?
The survey measures many aspects of students' wellbeing, engagement, and experience at school.
What is involved in participation?
Teachers will arrange for students to take part in the survey online during class time. It takes about 30 minutes to complete. If your student requires additional assistance, teachers and/or support people are able to help them.
Does your student have to participate?
Participation in the survey is voluntary. Choosing not to participate will not affect your student's education in any way.
Your student will be asked if they would like to participate before starting the survey. They are free to stop or withdraw at any time.
If you do not wish for your student to participate in the QEW Survey, please let us know.
Your student will still get a link to the survey in their email even if you opt out, but they won't be able to get into the survey without the access code given only at the time of completing the survey.
