Catholic Safe School Climate Survey

St. John Henry Newman Catholic Secondary School students will be participating in the Catholic Safe Schools Climate Survey (Tell them from Me) in the coming weeks. We plan to begin completing this survey with students who are learning face-to-face, in person, next week. Students in all face-to-face classes from grades 9-12 will be asked to complete this survey.

The Ministry of Education requires each school district to conduct this survey to collect information concerning students’ feelings of safety and security at school.

The information collected and completion of the survey is anonymous and completely confidential. The collection of this information is important to help inform the administration and staff within the school and the HWCDSB about steps that we can take to continually improve the safety and well-being of our students while they are attending St. John Henry Newman Catholic Secondary School.

The informed consent below is required for any student whose parents wish that they do not participate in this survey.

If you do not wish that your child participate in this survey, please complete the opt-out form in the link above which can be also be found on the school website. Please have your child return this form in person to Mr. Cortiula in the Library Learning Commons OR you can email this opt-out form to him directly at no later than Friday, February 19th, 2021. If we don't receive an opt-out form, we will assume that you consent to your child participating in this survey.

Thank you for your consideration of this very important survey.
