An investigation into the relationship between perceptions of school connectedness: Joanne, Sara, Avanya and Wendy

This is a joint project done by: Joanne Fanner, Sara Naicker, Avanya Naidoo, and Wendy Penfold. The focus of this study is the school context, in particular how perceptions of school connectedness interface with health risk behaviours, more specifically substance abuse, violence-related behaviours, sexual risk behaviours and suicidal ideation. School connectedness encompasses a range of aspects pertaining to a learner’s sense of well-being at school, namely closeness, encouragement and caring among peers, staff and the general school environment

I can be reached at
Be well,
