ISB Professional Goal:
Develop a wellness survey for Grade 6 students. The wellness survey will ask students questions regarding external pressures, bullying, coping skills, feelings about school, healthy relationships, and wellness indicators including sleep, nutrition and activity levels. The wellness survey will be administered to small groups of students (mentor groups) as part of a larger initiative to increase counsellor visibility among Grade 6 students and reduce stigma around seeking adult assistance in solving personal issues. Data collected from the wellness survey will be used to in counselling programming and mentoring classes.
