On behalf of my staff, our students and myself I would like to warmly welcome you to St Kevin’s College

St Kevin’s College is a coeducational Catholic College set on fifty three acres in beautiful Oamaru. Although it began as a boy's school in 1927, it has changed and developed over the years to meet the needs of an ever changing world, respecting tradition whilst reaching with courage towards the future.​​​​​​​

It is my privilege to lead this wonderful college. I extend a warm welcome to prospective students to come and explore the school and hostel and experience what we have to offer.

I also warmly invite our past staff and students to visit us at any time and to join our Alumni and Foundation groups.

God Bless, 

Jo Walshe
