The College has been a hive of industry this week as we come into the final couple of weeks before the commencement of NCEA examinations. Students should have settled into their extra study in order to be well prepared and are also reminded about good sleeping and eating habits to ensure they have every success during a time that can be stressful.
There was a great turnout to the NCEA Pathways Planning Evening on Tuesday, such that we relocated to the larger Auditorium. I hope that parents, caregivers and students found the information helpful in navigating the NCEA waters and that it prompted discussions at home about course selections and career paths. Our staff, in particular Year Level Deans, Careers and Guidance staff, are always available to field any questions and queries so please contact the office if you would like to speak to someone.
Also on this week was our Celebration of Culture Awards which showcased the depth of The Arts and Culture at St Kevin's. We have a very proud tradition of Culture at the College and I would like to thank the staff and members of our community who work with and support our students to ensure that this continues. In particular, I would like to thank Ms Jo Walshe for her work in organising last night's event and the students who performed for us. I was delighted to present a Cultural Blue to GypsyMae Harihona-Harrison and congratulate all of our award winning thespians, musicians and artists.
May God bless you
Kerry Ryan, Deputy Principal
