Good evening SHS parents. On Monday, Feb 11, our students will be participating in the annual COMPASS Survey. This is a survey that we have done for the past 5 years. It is completely anonymous and confidential.
The questionnaire asks students about healthy eating,, physical activity, sedentary behaviour, smoking, alcohol and drug use, bullying, school connectedness, academic achievement and mental health.
The survey is confidential and no names are written on the survey.
We at Strathmore High School have gained valuable information about our students' lifestyles from the data collected in this survey.
For example, we have seen that over the past 5 years, the number of students that are obese has dropped by 6%, and that the number of current smokers has dropped by 10%. We are also seeing that our students consistently felt that they were part of their school, and that approximately 70% of our students think that they will complete a post-secondary education.
We are asking you to allow your SHS student to participate in this survey on Monday, Feb 11.
If you wish to NOT have your student participate, please contact me, Karen Harris, via e-mail or phone at Strathmore High School.
