Dear Professor Hayes
Growing Up in Australia: The Longitudinal Study of Australian Children
I have been advised by the Educational Performance Report Committee that there is no objection to the extension of your current research application to allow for Waves 5 to 8.
We appreciate that the methodology planned for these additional waves is identical to that used in previous waves and that you have been granted an ethics clearance through the AIFS Ethics Committee.
Please note that you have been given permission to proceed at a general level, and not at individual school level. You must still seek support from the principals of the selected government schools listed in your application before you can proceed with your study.
A copy of your final report should be forwarded to Educational Performance Services, Department of Education, GPO Box 169, Hobart, 7001 at your earliest convenience and within six months of the completion of the research phase.
