The Year 7 Health Survey (Y7HS) is an annual health and wellbeing survey of Year 7 students in the ACT.
The Y7HS covers topics such as the consumption of: fruit and vegetables; discretionary foods such as ‘fast’ foods, snacks high in fat, sugar or salt, and sugar sweetened drinks; as well as physical activity; sedentary behaviour; sleep; and, general wellbeing.
The Y7HS is made available to all secondary schools in the ACT each year. For public schools, it is delivered alongside the annual School Satisfaction and Climate Survey with an opt-out consent to minimise the burden to schools and their students. For non-government schools, a survey link is provided to students via a parent letter and allows students to complete the survey at a time convenient for them.
