The Hazelwood Schools Study was conducted in response to expressed community concerns regarding the psychological impacts of the 2014 Hazelwood mine fire on children who were living and schooling in the vicinity. This is a longitudinal study to collect information at two yearly intervals from students in academic years 3, 5, 7, and 9 (in line with the National Assessment Program [NAPLAN] school years). The Schools Study is part of the broader Hazelwood Health Study, which has been commissioned by the Victorian Government Department of Health, to address the concerns of the community regarding the impacts of the smoke event.
