Family Survey

The Mornington Peninsula Shire would like to hear from families who have used the School Holiday Program to better understand the needs of families and their children across the three programs.

We value your input to evaluate our service delivery in line with our commitment to provide the best outcomes for children across our services.

Your completed surveys will be anonymous and answers will be combined together to better understand whether the service is meeting the needs of families.

The feedback received will help shape school holiday programs of the future.
