Tell Them From Me Survey


What do students think about school and their learning?.....

I am delighted that our school has been selected to participate in a Department of Education and Communities pilot of the Tell Them From Me student survey. 178 secondary and central schools across NSW with almost 125000 students are taking part in a trial of this survey.

The survey aims to help improve student learning outcomes and measures factors that are known to affect academic achievement and other student outcomes. The focus of the NSW pilot project is on student wellbeing, engagement and effective teaching practices. Our students have always given ys feedback on what works and does not work. Recently, a sample of students has been surveyed and interviewed in each faculty as part of faculty reviews aimed to help us improve our work.

More information about the Tell Them from Me (TTfM) survey is available at:


The TTfM survey will provide our school with valuable and quick feedback on what our students think about school life, how engaged they are with school and the different ways that teachers interact with them. Schools in Australia and around the world have used the TTfM survey to help improve how they do things at school.

I want to assure you that the survey is anonymous and students cannot be identified by their responses. The survey is conducted online and will take around 30 minutes to complete. It will be administered during school hours between 19 August and 6 September.

An information sheet and consent form about the survey is being sent home with students. This is an “opt out” survey. Only if parents  do not want their children to participate is there any need return the form to school by Friday 9th August.
