Strategic Plan 2020

ASA’s strategic plan was developed in 2016 following feedback from our member schools on ASA’s priorities and future directions.

The plan affirms ASA’s Core Purpose – ‘to support and serve Anglican schools in fulfilling their Christian Mission’. 

During the planning process six Core Values were identified: 

Service – Supporting the needs of our member schools in the spirit of servant leadership 

Inclusivity – Respecting the diversity of Anglican schools and their communities 

Integrity – Being ethical, honest and transparent 

Courage – Standing up for our beliefs 

Justice – Acting justly and fairly 

Generosity of Spirit – Treating others with love and kindness

Management Committee identified seven key priorities: 

  • Creating opportunities for collaboration and mutual support, including connecting members between ASA conferences
  • Enhancing support for School Chaplains, recognising that ASA is one of their major collegiate networks
  • Stimulating discussion and sharing of knowledge on key issues and opportunities impacting Anglican schools
  • Undertaking collegial research and development projects which build the capacity of Anglican schools as contemporary Christian communities
  • Strengthening advocacy for Anglican schools with a particular focus on Government and the Church
  • Building alliances to extend our horizons including social justice partnerships with Anglican agencies and the benefits of extending our network to embrace New Zealand Anglican schools
  • Being open to new ways to support the work of Anglican schools as faith-inspired communities of learning
 

Strategic Plan 2020 is delivered through three Core Activities, which all contribute to the Christian life of Anglican schools. 

  • Collegiality and Collaboration
  • Research and Development Initiatives
  • Advocacy and Alliances

In 2020 the Management Committee will begin the process of undertaking a new Strategic Plan for the next five years.  We look forward to engaging with our member schools during this process.
