Principal's Comment

Kia ora Kevinians and Supporters of the College

Welcome back to the 2018 College year and the first of my weekly Principal's Comments.

We aim to keep you up to date with the latest news and developments at St Kevin's with short but regular posts both in this blog and on Facebook. We encourage you to like us on Facebook so you are always in the loop. If you have images from sporting teams or cultural activities involving our community, please share them with Cathy Keep so we can all enjoy your shots and celebrate achievements.

As we complete the first week of classes for the 2018 year, in exceptionally warm conditions, I am pleased to report that the College is fully staffed. Our initial roll has slightly increased on last year as we have welcomed 88 year 9 students as well as a number of students at other year levels.

Thank you to our time table team, especially Ryan Gower, for the time and dedication they have put in to getting classes sorted and numbers within the classes balanced.
In our lead up to the College opening, the student prefects gathered for a leadership day. Thank you to Mr Nyika, Mr Ryan and Father Wayne for their support during this induction and development day. I am confident that our student leaders are well prepared to lead the many interhouse challenges as well as being outstanding role models in our community. Thanks to the student leaders who have gone the extra mile this week to support staff and especially the new students, putting your training into action to make the College an inclusive community.

May God bless you all as you enjoy the Waitangi Day holiday.
Paul Olsen, Principal
