Imagine Our School:

Creating a Spiritually, Mentally Healthy Place to Learn, Work and Play

Guide for Students and Staff and Community

Thank you for taking part in the Imagine Our School project. This effort will involve everyone in our school, helping to create Our Spiritually, Mentally Healthy School of the Future.  Further information from Te Mahau (Ministry of Education) is available at the end of this survey.

We are doing this through a written “appreciative interview”, asking people to tell stories about times when they saw things working at their BEST at St Anthony’s.

Usually we ask about things that are broken – the problems – so that we can fix them. In this case, we’re trying to look at things at their best – the successes – so that we can find out what works and do more of it.

We would be grateful if you could please fill in this form and send it back to school either by email or hard copy (to the Office or Principal) as soon as possible before the 1st September 2023 or

If you would prefer to speak to someone about this rather than write it down, please contact either our BOT Chair Patrick Baker or any member of our school BOT.

The information you provide us with, will help us to review our Strategic Plan, to guide our school direction over the next few years.  When we have collated all the information we will share it back with the community at the beginning of Term 4.  We will be coming back to the school community on any emerging themes that we require further guidance around.
