Whataboutme.nz -The National Youth Health and Wellbeing Survey
Our school has been selected to take part in whataboutme.nz, a nationwide survey of young people in Aotearoa/New Zealand. The survey will provide important information about what it is like to be a young person in Aotearoa. The results from our school and 150 others around the country will inform future government youth health and wellbeing policy.
One class in each year group will be randomly selected to complete the survey during school time with a researcher and youth worker. Whataboutme.nz is completely anonymous and young people will not be asked to give their names or other identifying information. The survey is not compulsory and students do not have to take part.
We will send whānau and students from participating classes information sheets with more details. We encourage you to discuss participation in the survey to help your student decide whether or not to participate.
The information sheet has instructions for opting out. Students from our school will be completing the survey on May 24 and May 28.
More information about the survey can be found at www.whataboutme.nz or if you have questions you can contact Tim Rowland or Stewart Graham at Malatest International on 0800 002 577 or email email@example.com
