The State Government recently announced that our school will take part in the DETECT research project to determine the incidence and impact of COVID-19 in WA schools. The study, which involves approximately 80 public schools, education support settings and residential colleges, is being undertaken by the Departments of Health and Education in partnership with Telethon Kids Institute.
Our school has been invited to take part in the online survey component of this study that will build a greater understanding of how students, parents and staff are coping in this challenging time, and what can be done to support our community.
The research team have developed survey questions that are suitable for different age groups and to help understand some of the experience for children, families and teachers during the COVID-19 restrictions.
You will be asked to read and consider the information carefully before you decide whether you or your child are willing to participate. The research team and our school’s principal will be available to answer your questions.
By participating in this research, our school community will help the Government understand what measures are needed to support our community.
