Meet Our Head Students

Manaia Barns —

Head Boy - Manaia Barns

Kia Ora Koutou,

My name is Manaia Barns and I have the privilege of serving as head boy of Kavanagh College in 2022!

It’s an honour to be able to serve this year and I’m so excited for all the kaupapa the year ahead. I’m also thrilled to be working with each and every one of you to be able to make our school a better place to learn and have fun.

I'm highly passionate about my whakapapa, as well as environmental sustainability and through my short time in Kavanagh, I’ve been able to learn so much about myself and the world. Here is to a fun year ahead!
