Over 100 responses have been received from parents within the first week of the latest survey being conducted by the Wanaka Alcohol Group and partnered by Mount Aspiring College, focusing on a ‘Parents Perspective’ of youth and alcohol. This initiative was a recommendation from the ‘Harming you, Harming Me’ report after the 2016 survey investigated Yr 9 - Yr 11 youth behaviours around alcohol.

In his covering email to all yr 9 – yr 13 parents, Principal Mr Wayne Bosley said “Research in education significantly guides the way we approach student learning and the support we can offer our parent community. Recognising this, Mount Aspiring College is partnering a ‘Parent Survey’ being conducted by the Wanaka Alcohol Group this month. “

Rachel Brown, Chair of the Wanaka Alcohol Groups said “It is important to get numerous and wide-ranging responses from parents, so we gain a more accurate picture of our community and ultimately how best to support our families.”

The Wanaka Alcohol Group has a range of initiatives rolling out in their endeavours to empower members of the community to make positive choices for healthy lifestyles.
