SPECIAL REPORT: The Wellbeing Barometer 2023

Because parenting doesn’t come with instructions, sometimes you may feel overwhelmed, stressed or struggling with the challenges of raising happy, well, and resilient young people. Parenting is a learning journey, and it’s not always easy. But you don’t have to do it alone.

Introducing SchoolTV – a comprehensive wellbeing resource designed to support you in your parenting journey. With mental health concerns on the rise, it’s more important than ever to have access to the latest research, advice and support to help your child thrive.

At Heywood and District Secondary College, we are committed to providing families with the tools they need to support their children’s wellbeing. That’s why we’ve implemented SchoolTV, a valuable resource that provides practical guidance and information from leading specialists and key organisations on a range of topics related to parenting, mental health and wellbeing.

But we need your help. In this Special Report, we are seeking your participation through a short survey to help us better understand the state of student wellbeing within our community. Your feedback will help us to determine how best we can support families in the months ahead.

Together we can continue to build relationships, foster connections and enable understanding as we navigate a pathway towards better mental health and wellbeing for all students. So, we encourage you to take a few moments to complete the survey and reflect on the information offered in this Special Report. Responses remain anonymous and will only be reported on an aggregated basis. You are asked to base your responses on observations made in the last 12 months.

Parents and caregivers play a vital role in providing the guidance needed to support children, so it’s okay to ask for help along the way. If this report raises any concerns for you or your child, please reach out to the school or seek professional medical advice. Let’s work together to support the wellbeing of all young people and ensure they feel equipped with the skills to become citizens of tomorrow.
