This survey was aimed at secondary school students in Kerry who are about to sit their Leaving Certificate this year. The survey intended to find out if the students mental health were in any way affected by the potential changes to this year’s Leaving Certificate due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The survey also examined the issue of bullying in secondary schools and examined what kind of role social media plays in their lives.
