Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Ethics approval was obtained from the Hunter New England Human Research Ethics Committee (17/08/16/4.07), the NSW Department of Education (SERAP2017457) and Broken Bay, Sydney and Wollongong Catholic Diocese. Consent to participate in the study is provided at the school level by school principals. Participation of students in the evaluation component of the study will be through an opt-out consent process, where parents must provide written documentation to state they do not wish their child to participate in the evaluation. This opt-out consent process approach was approved by all the above ethical reviews, with the exception of the Sydney Catholic Diocese. Participating schools within this Diocese require written informed consent from parents for their child to participate in the evaluation component, and the study has accommodated this requirement.
