Welcome to our Quality Schools Survey 2017

Each year, Wahroonga Adventist School reviews their progress and improvement in a number of specific areas.
The purpose of this survey is to gauge, from your perspective, how effectively our school is working in the areas of Finances, Facilities and Resources, Pastoral Care, Student Learning and Engagement and Human Resources.
This survey is anonymous and will provide valuable assistance as we determine areas of strength and weakness in our school.
We will use the information to help us set goals and action plans for improvement.
Please feel free to make comments where indicated, as your opinions and feedback are an important part of this process.
Goals established as a result of previous surveys are available on our website as part of the Quality Adventist Schools Improvement Plan document. 
Thank you for participating in our survey.
