Student well-being is an important aspect to consider when understanding teaching and learning and improved outcomes. Sometimes we can be so focused on academic achievement that we forget to measure this really important aspect of student well-being. Research suggests that if students’ experience at school is positive then their outcomes will continue to improve. During Term 2 all of our students from Pre-primary to Year 6 were surveyed about how they feel at school. The survey made statements such as ‘I feel happy at school’ and the students had to rate these statements in regards to how much they agree or disagree with each. In the PP-Year 2 survey 97% of statements were answered positively while the Years 3-6 survey returned an impressive 96%. From this data we can safely say that St Mary’s School is a great school to be in and the children are very happy and their well-being is being well looked after thanks to our wonderful staff, students and parents.
