The Albury Project is currently working in Albury High School, James Fallon High School, and Murray High School. Each year, all students in the schools complete a survey called the Australian Index of Adolescent Development, which helps to identify students who might benefit from some extra support. The Albury Project staff will then meet with each of these students to understand their needs and see whether The Albury Project would be helpful.
Young people (and their families) can benefit from participating in The Albury Project in many ways. The Albury Project staff will work with schools, families and anyone else that’s needed, to respond to the needs of each young person they are working with.
We hope that everyone who has the opportunity to participate in The Albury Project will do so. However, participation is not compulsory.
Families will be notified in the lead-up to annual surveys, and have the opportunity to opt their student/s out of surveys. Students also can opt-out of participation at any time. There are no consequences for choosing not to participate.
Detailed information about the survey process and data handling is provided to families in the lead-up to annual surveys. If you would like to discuss anything about The Albury Project in more detail, please contact your student’s participating school, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
