Saint Kentigern Trust Board has entered into an enforceable undertaking agreement with WorkSafe New Zealand.  This agreement has been reached following WorkSafe’s investigation into an accident in which very serious injuries were sustained by two students at the College production last year.  The document can be read on this page.

Ensuring that all students can learn in a safe environment remains Saint Kentigern's first priority. Families can be assured that Saint Kentigern’s processes for all curricular and co-curricular activities were closely reviewed following the incident and will be continuously improved. 


The following documents were designed specifically for schools for managing health and safety for the performing arts.   They include a comprehensive review of the steps to manage these events, copies of the overheads and trainers notes used in recent workshops (for your use) and planning documents.  We hope that you find these of use and they help you to further develop your performing arts safety systems.
