Students who are interested in public speaking, debating and drama should consider getting involved with the Bishop's Shield competition which will be held early in Term 3 (12-14 August 2022).

This year Kavanagh is hosting the competition so it will be held in Dunedin.

The Bishop's Shield competition sees students from the Catholic high schools in the Dunedin Diocese (Kavanagh, St Kevin's, St Peter's and Verdon) competing against one another in prepared speech, impromptu speech, junior and senior debating, junior and senior drama and junior and senior scripture.
