We’ve conducted a survey of 90 students who visited Tauira Tautoko student support centre at SIT during April - 52 of which visited several times a day!
Our survey shows students who visited were aged from under 20 to 60+ and from a diverse range of ethnicities including Indian, German, Chinese, British, African and South America Latin American. They visited for varying reasons; the most popular being tea/coffee/kai, warmth, getting to know other people, and for the computer suite.
We’ve received some fabulous feedback from the students:
“Very warm and welcoming, I feel a sense of belonging and felt looked after.”
“Welcoming and relaxing”.
“Home away from home.”
“Met my best friends here!”
“Brilliant. Couldn’t do without.”

Addiction Services - Aronui Art Therapy
The general consensus from comments gathered in a survey about our new Aronui – Art Therapy Programme is that clients would like it to be extended!
Participants of the group who responded to a survey agree the group was well facilitated and relevant, and they valued the opportunity to be involved in the programme.
“Would like the programme to be longer. Enjoy and appreciate the trust in the room. Has helped me recognise that I’m not the only person going through this.”
“This programme was really great – something for us to look forward to each week. Great way to learn about ourselves. I found it very productive. My only criticism is that it needs to go for longer – it’s a shame it’s finished now. More of the same please thank you.”
“Yes I liked it, made me think, wish it could have been longer.”
