Kahui Ako Teacher Only Day– Friday 4th of June 2021

Ian Adamson —

On Friday the 4th of June all the teaching and support staff in all our Catholic Schools are gathering at Kavanagh College for a day of high quality, targeted professional learning.

This will mean that schools will be closed for the day. We have tagged this onto Queen’s Birthday Weekend.

We would like to extend an invitation to all our parents to the first session of the Expo.

Where: Kavanagh College Auditorium

When: 8.45-10.30 a.m

Who: Jehan Casinader- ‘The Power of Stories’

Each of us has a story about who we are, where we’ve come from and where we might be going.

But where do those stories come from? How do our stories influence our mental health? And how can we tell more helpful, hopeful stories about our lives – especially as we navigate the ups and downs of Covid-19?

Jehan Casinader has wrestled with these questions. He’s one of New Zealand’s top TV journalists, author and mental health advocate.

He has reported for TVNZ’s flagship programmes, including Sunday, Seven Sharp, Close Up and Breakfast. He was named “Broadcast Reporter of the Year” at the Voyager Media Awards in 2020, and “Reporter of the Year” at the New Zealand Television Awards in 2018.

In the aftermath of natural disasters, terror attacks, sporting triumphs and everything in between, Jehan has helped hundreds of Kiwis to share their vulnerable and deeply personal stories with the rest of the country.

He is the author of This Is Not How It Ends: How rewriting your story can save your life (Harper Collins).
