We're conducting a survey to find out what you think about our school.
This year the Parent Opinion Survey is being conducted from Monday 22 July to Sunday 11 August.
The Parent Opinion Survey is an opportunity for schools to collect data from parent/guardians in relation to our school community, ensuring that continuous improvement and success is occurring in School Climate, Student Engagement, Teaching and Learning and of course improved student outcomes. The survey is aligned with the Framework for Improving Student Outcomes and the Attitudes to School Survey. NGSC will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies. It is a very important step towards making our school one of the best possible educational setting in the wider community.
The 2019 survey will be conducted online by ORIMA Research Pty Ltd and only takes 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile at any convenient time within the fieldwork period from Monday 22 July to Sunday 11 August 2019.
The Parent Opinion Survey is completed annually by the Department of Education and Training and is conducted amongst a sample of randomly selected parents at every school in Victoria. This year, about 30 per cent of parents will be invited to participate. All responses to the survey are anonymous. Many NGSC parents over the years would most likely have completed these surveys.
This year, your family may be randomly selected to participate in the Parent Opinion Survey. If you do get selected, I would ask you to take the time to complete the survey as your opinion is important to our school community. It is important to us that you complete the survey as honestly as possible.
