Get tips and tools for addressing student wellbeing to to improve attendance, from NZ's leading experts

If you want to reduce absenteeism, you need to identify at-risk students and understand why they aren’t attending school.

But this is difficult, because the factors that contribute to a student’s mental health and their ability to attend school are numerous. How can you find out what factors contributed to poor attendance or grades? How do you discover what issues you need to address in order to improve attendance?

In a school environment, you have the advantage of being able to engage directly with students. But what about when students don’t speak up, are absent or their reasons are not clear? 

At this event, you’ll discover

  • The link between wellbeing and attendance, and why it’s particularly important for New Zealand students.
  • Three tools that are invaluable for finding out why your students are unhappy, and how you can address it.
  • Case studies showing how you can start to improve student wellbeing and reduce absenteeism today.
