The Fogarty Foundation and iyarn have
teamed up to support student wellbeing
School Wellbeing Support AvailableRegister Now
Since launching iyarn, we have been able to give students a way to easily track their wellbeing and mental health. Our students have embraced this resource and can see the value in understanding their own strengths and areas for improvement that it highlights. As a College dedicated to pastoral care, we are now beginning to see students empowered to improve their overall health as well as having important data that shapes how we can best support our students.

After using iyarn with my homeroom for a few months I can already see how powerful this tool can be and how many different ways it can help. We set up our iyarn so that it prompted not only conversations with their teacher and peers, but also allows for self-reflection on where they are at. Students often find it challenging to express how they are feeling, but this enables them to do it in a quantifiable way. In other words, I love it!

Everyone has got a screen in front of their face. The phone is easily accessible and this is a tool which is great because its interactive, it relates directly to them, but also it connects them to other people. I just love the user friendly way it is. It can take 30 seconds to do, but it might save lives.
