Principal's Message

By Steve Read | Posted: Tuesday June 6, 2017

Greetings, Kia ora, Talofa, Malo e lei

Yesterday saw Kavanagh College’s inaugural Pentecostal Mass. During the Mass we were able to thank Fr Michael Dooley for his chaplaincy in the College over the last 9 years. We also welcomed our new Chaplain, Fr Sani to the Kavanagh Community.

Congratulations to our Girls Sevens teams. The senior team won their semi-final yesterday afternoon, then went down in a battle to St Hilda's in the final. Our junior team bet a strong Taieri team in the semi-final and played a brilliant game in the final to beat Otago Girls High School to become Junior Girls 7's winners in Otago.

The Police have been in contact with me regarding young drivers on restricted licences. Police have been made aware that students at Dunedin schools are breaching the conditions of their licences. This is a warning that police will be monitoring drivers around our school.

Don’t breach your licence conditions by giving mates a ride to and from school or driving from school at lunchtimes with your mates. A real mate wouldn’t put you in this situation. If you are caught driving and breaching the conditions of your licence by police you will receive a traffic infringement. This is a $100 fine and you will also receive 35 demerit points.

Kavanagh is hosting the Southern Catholic Schools Junior Sports Tournament next Wednesday. With over 140 students from Kavanagh competing, it promises to be a fun day. The “Big Sing” is on at the Town Hall next Wednesday as well.

Excitement is starting to build for the Kavanagh College Formal, to be held at the Town Hall next Friday night. It is a great occasion and a chance to see our wonderful young men and woman enjoy a social event in a mature manner.

God Bless

Acting Principal
