City of Yarra Secondary School Survey

Dear Parent,

Yarra City Council is interested to hear from you about your experiences in selecting a secondary school for your child.

Secondary school destination data has shown that over the past three years, despite spare capacity at schools in Yarra, over 34% of students in Yarra primary schools are transitioning to secondary schools outside of Yarra (Joining the Dots report, 2012).

We are undertaking a research project exploring what parents look for in secondary schools and how they access information to make their decision. We are also looking at what secondary schools in and around Yarra offer to identify any potential gaps between parent expectations and school provision.

You can participate in the research project in a number of ways:

  • contact Georgia or Tess to attend a parent focus group (details below),
  • complete a short survey online (, or
  • give us a call to have a chat over the phone.

Further information on the project and previous research can be found on Council’s website:


We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,

Georgia McRae & Tess Simson
