    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


    The following pages provide summaries of projects carried out over three years. In addition to
    considering the details of those different projects it is important to consider some of the
    common themes that emerged.
    This was a research program that was, to a considerable extent, stimulated by the school
    partners. It is important to recognise that such research can be carried out and can provide
    benefit to schools and to the system. We encourage DECS to do more such research.
    Schools are complex communities and the wellbeing of the members of those communities
    are intertwined. As indicated in the report, these links extend beyond the school into the
    community. Some of the other interwining threads are discussed in the sections of this report.
