Friendly Schools and Families


As part of our pastoral care program, Scotch College Junior School has been involved in a three-year longitudinal survey into 'Preventing Anxiety and Victimisation Through Education'. The purpose of the survey is to assist in the evaluation of our Friendly Schools Plus programme in reducing peer victimisation and anxiety in school. The survey is conducted by The Centre for Emotional Health and supported by Telethon Kids Institute; Discovery, Prevent, Cure.

This is our third and final year of the three-year survey and involves our Year 5 student volunteers (as well as Year 6 and Year 7 students in the Middle School) completing a questionnaire that focuses on anxiety and victimisation. Parents who approved their son's involvement in the programme are also encouraged to complete a parent survey, which will be sent home next week.
