2021 Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey

The 2021 Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey (SWES) took place in Term 3, 2021. 29 650 students took part.

The 2021 collection had the highest number of students participate since the SWES commenced in 2019.

Overall, the state-level data (responses across all schools/year levels) indicates that results remain fairly stable with previous years.

The survey provides useful data on the wellbeing of our students. It will inform our approaches to student wellbeing at a school and system level.
